WWW & Wishlist Wednesday #8

Meme hosted @ Pen To Paper Blog
Obsidian 
Lux series #1

Starting over sucks.

When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I'd pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.

And then he opened his mouth.

Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something...unexpected happens. 

The hot alien living next door marks me.

You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon's touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. 

If I don't kill him first, that is.



Why do I want to read this book? Simply because everyone seems to love it and I definitely want to know what everyone has been talking about! I also have Half-Blood and Pure from the same author but I still hadn't got a chance to read them - guess I could start with those, couldn't I?



To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…

• What are you currently reading?
• What did you recently finish reading?
• What do you think you’ll read next?


What are you currently reading?
I am currently reading The Year Of The Great Seventh by Teresa Orts, that she kindly sent to me a couple of months ago, for review. The book seems quite interesting even if there are some details that don't convince me that much.. but well, I am still at page 100 so, I am just hoping it will surprise me!

What did you recently finish reading?
As I said in the last WWW my last read was Looking for Alaska by John Green, a very fascinating book that I really liked for the author's style but not quite for the story itself - I really hope to write my review soon!
What do you think you'll read next?
Red by Kerstin Gier, not sure if this is going to be my cup of tea but I heard that the movie is about to be released and I definitely want to read the book first, in any case.

  3. Obsidian is an awesome book (Although I have to admit I am still not a big fan of the cover) I mean, what could be more awesome then sarcastic aliens? Red is also a book that begs to be read! Happy Reading :)
