Chapters: Obsidian (Lux #1) – Part 1

Good evening! I hope you’re all doing well!
Today I am back with a fun little post that I have been working on for a really long time and I’m so excited to share! 🙂

It’s no secret that Jennifer L. Armentrout is one of my all time favourite authors, considering the fact that I rarely shut up about her books. Her Lux series is one of my favourite series ever, so when I got wind of the fact that the first book, Obsidian, was being turned into an interactive story on the app Chapters, I just had to see what it was all about! Admittedly, I’m a little nervous going into this because I am worried that it will be horrible and I don’t want to be let down. However, I also feel like I will love anything to do with this series, so I’m willing to give it a shot. I thought that it would be fun to document my thoughts and progress as I went along to share with you all!

Since there are a whopping 27 chapters in this interactive story, I decided to break it down into three separate posts. 
Hope you enjoy!! 🙂


Chapter 1:
It’s definitely too early for me to decide how I’m feeling about this. I’m honestly scared it’s going to ruin my favourite series for me, but on the other hand, how can I not play a video game version of my favourite book series?
I’ve always thought that these choice games looked ridiculous and I never imagined that I’d be playing one, but alas, here we are. (Admittedly, I did play one once when I was 14. Oddly, I chose a bachelor reality show type of story on the app Episode – a strange choice considering I’ve never watched The Bachelor and have not intention of doing so. From what I can recall, it was actually somewhat entertaining, even if it was really stupid at times. I know that at the time, one of my friends was borderline addicted to the game and played countless stories, but I thought it looked absolutely ridiculous, so I have no recollection of why I ended up trying it. But for whatever reason, I downloaded the app, played one story, and then deleted it. And now here we again.
)
You can design Katy and Daemon’s characters to look how you want (though there are extremely limited options), so at least the characters look sort of accurate. I am, however, very disappointed in Dee’s lack of curly hair.

The music changes depending on the type of scene, and whenever Daemon appears, this weird sort of rockish guitar comes on. It’s like they’re trying to make the scene kinda sexy or something but I simply find it to be comedic.
So far, the storyline seems relatively accurate. I don’t really understand what they’re doing with this dramatic backstory with Katy’s dad. It was much less prominent in the book, I think, so I’m not sure where they’re going to be taking this. The relationship between Katy and her mom also seems weird because of this, which is unfortunate because I loved their relationship in the book! I do really like that they kept some of the dialogue the same, like Daemon referring to Katy as a looking like a vacant-eyed doll. They also still have Katy as an avid reader, book blogger, and gardener, which is good! However, they have changed some dialogue so horribly that I’m honestly at a loss for words. For instance:
screenshot_20200218-204326
What on earth was that about?!? This part had me in tears from laughing (but also cringing) so hard. Who decided that it would be a good idea to start throwing memes into this? It was bad enough when her character was named “Entitled Mom”, but when she said ” Don’t talk to me or my son ever again” I lost it. Why, why, why, why, WHY?
It’s scenes and dialogue like this that makes me fear that they will ruin my precious Katy and Daemon, but I’m trying to have hope.
Onto Chapter 2 we go!

Chapter 2:
Okay, so, things are not looking good. First of all, WHAT IN GOD’S NAME IS DAEMON WEARING?
screenshot_20200220-002830
My boy
would never be caught dead in such a thing! I get that they’re trying to portray him as a “bad boy”, but in the books, Daemon was always a simple jeans and T-shirt kind of guy. This jacket coupled with that weird rock music had me WHEEZING.
The relationship between Katy and her mother is still on the weird side. For instance, Kat’s mom would never say this:
screenshot_20200220-002306  screenshot_20200220-002316
There was also some more weird dialogue Katy’s part:
screenshot_20200220-002739
Handsome as the devil? Really???
At least they did keep some of her lines:
screenshot_20200220-002748
I’m beginning to see how the choices that I get to make are going to be an issue down the line because I often don’t even get to make a choice at all unless I purchase it with my diamonds. I only have a limited number of diamonds, unless of course I would like to purchase more for a ludicrously high price. Which I do not want.
screenshot_20200220-001920   screenshot_20200220-002856
Unfortunately this means that Katy will be a
boring and often kind of rude character but I can’t afford to choose the interesting options. I can’t even give her cute clothes to wear because the nice outfit options keep costing diamonds too!
Chapter 3, here we come!

Chapter 3:
Man, oh man, I really can’t take it with Daemon’s outfits. I mean:
screenshot_20200220-133611
His head looks so oddly tiny.
Also, so much for Daemon being subtle about the fact that he and Dee are not human. This is definitely NOT suspicious or anything:
screenshot_20200220-133723
(I must admit that sometimes the book was kind of bad with this too where Daemon was always making comments about how Katy wasn’t like them, but it was never this awful.)

Chapter 4:
Oh my God!! They’re making me use diamonds to pick the red bikini! That was an important part of the book. Ugh!! Guess I’m going with “dark and moody” instead.
screenshot_20200220-195315  screenshot_20200220-195442
All of the choices are such extreme reactions; it’s ridiculous. For instance, when Katy trips in the forest and Daemon catches her, the options are to hug him and thank him (a hug would be really weird because they aren’t even friends at this point) or push him away (he just saved her from falling – what kind of jerk rudely pushes someone away for that?). Why can’t she just say thank you like a normal person (and the Katy that I know) would do?
screenshot_20200220-200215
At least the general story line has been accurate thus far. I hope I’m not jinxing that!

Chapter 5:
The way that these characters are supposedly being secretive is making my eyes roll. Real subtle.
screenshot_20200221-185031
I also can’t say that I’m a fan of the writing style. There have been some analogies and phrases, and some things that just don’t really make a whole lot of sense. Like, how can you be describing what his eyes look like when his back is to you?
screenshot_20200221-185423
And again, what the hell is Daemon wearing now??? His costume designer needs a serious talking to. The only time he even looks somewhat like himself is when he doesn’t have a shirt on at all.
screenshot_20200221-185434
Of course, I know that I can’t expect this thing to be word for word from the novel; I understand that – really, I do. But screw it, THAT’S WHAT I WANT!! If you’re going to include my favourite quotes, for the love of God, do not change them! Either include them or don’t. There is no in between! These weird versions are tainting the original ones for me.
screenshot_20200221-191632
Honest to God, one of my (many) favourite parts of this book was the inclusion of the myth about Snowbird that Daemon told Katy when they went to the Seneca Rocks. I found it to be a very fascinating legend and I love that I learned something new about West Virginia’s history. It would be an understatement to say that I was excited when Daemon started telling Kat the story in the game. Oh, but then, BUT THEN, Daemon asked Katy what she would have done if she were Snowbird. And these are my options:
screenshot_20200221-192300
WHAT KIND OF HEARTLESS, HORRIBLE PERSON ARE THEY TRYING TO MAKE KATY OUT TO BE!?! I have to spend these stupid fricking diamonds if I want her to be a decent person?!? Ridiculous! I’m only on the 5th of 27 chapters, so I’m saving these things for when it really matters later on, and I’m sure as hell not paying for more. So heartless Katy shall be. She’d let him fall.

Chapter 6:
This was pretty uneventful, other than Dee being weird and overly suspicious.
screenshot_20200225-234425

Chapter 7:
This chapter was filled with a lot of WTF moments, such as when Katy suggests bringing pocket lint with her to the library.
screenshot_20200303-000748
Or, even better, when Katy goes to checkout a book at the library but instead of a librarian, there is a cat at the desk? Wearing a painting smock? And with artistic hopes and dreams in her eyes?
And this is somehow perceived to be normal???
I AM SO CONFUSED!
screenshot_20200303-000926 screenshot_20200303-000941
Also, Daemon apparently looks like this in his Luxen form:
screenshot_20200303-001445
I’m sorry, bu is he an alien or the Heat Miser? And what the heck has he got around his neck?
Not gonna lie, I’m starting to get a little worried about what the next chapters will have in store for us, but on we go!

Chapter 8:
Well, that was rather boring and uneventful. I have literally nothing to say

Chapter 9:
Okay, first of all SMOKE HOLE DINER IS NOT ’50s THEMED!!!!
Second of all, Daemon would not say this:
screenshot_20200518-014928
Also, Katy almost seems a little bit too suspicious for this early on in the game.screenshot_20200518-015636-2
And I am so upset that my screenshot didn’t work at the part when Kat called Ash “bitch face”. Katy can do so much better than that! I feel like this game is seriously missing out on her creativity when it comes to that kind of stuff. For instance, I’m seriously missing Katy’s signature lines, like “holy alien babies everywhere” and “crap on a cracker”. 😦


Final Thoughts on Part 1:
Honestly, I’m disappointed, but not all that surprised. For the most part, this game has stuck to my original beloved story pretty well, but there have been a few details that have been removed or added, which I can’t say I’m too pleased with. I honestly don’t see why they couldn’t have kept dialogue identical to the actual book. In some circumstances, such as movie adaptation, that isn’t possible due to time constraints, but it would be perfectly doable in a game.
One of the many reasons why I love Obsidian so much is because of the quick pace and entertaining writing style, which are two things that this game is seriously lacking in. I feel like I’ve already spent so long plying this game, but hardly anything at all has happened.
So far, the element of making choices, which is the entire point of this app, hasn’t played a strong role. I am frustrated that the vast majority of decent options cost “diamonds”, but at the same time, it doesn’t seem that the choices made actually make much of a difference in the long-term story.
To put it simply, this game is just missing the magic that makes the Lux series so fantastic. If this weren’t based on a story that I love so dearly, I know I wouldn’t have been able to make it past the first few chapters. For the sake of, um, science (?), I will keep on going!
Stay tuned for Part 2 coming soon!! 🙂

Quote Corner #13: The Problem With Forever

Happy Tuesday! I hope you’re all having the loveliest of weeks so far!
This morning I am sharing some wonderful quotes from one of my all-time favourite books, The Problem with Forever.
Happy reading!!


Frustration bloomed inside me, because I knew I could talk but every time there was the perfect moment for me to speak up, I got too caught up in overthinking what I could say. I remained silent, as if there was a cap plugging my throat closed, allowing only the minimal amount of air through. Words were not the enemy nor the monster under my bed, but they held such power over me. They were like the ghost of a loved one, forever haunting me.

This speech wasn’t forever. Being embarrassed as not forever. None of this was forever. But trying was. Living was.

I was in love with him. I knew that much was true. Love was the swelling, hopeful feeling in my chest every time I saw him. Love was the way I could forget about everything when I was with him. Love was the catch in my breath when he looked at me in his intense way. Love was the gasp he could draw out of me with the simplest of touches. Love was the way I could… I could be myself around him, know that I didn’t need to be perfect or worry about what he was thinking, because he accepted me.

Jayden’s eyes widened as his mouth opened slightly. The flush in my cheeks deepened as I pressed my lips together.
“Huh. That’s the first time I’ve heard you talk.” He pushed off the locker, falling in step beside me. Shorter than his brother and Rider, he was still a couple of inches taller than me, so my neck appreciated not having to look up to see him.
“Cool. I’m quiet, too.”
I arched a brow.
He laughed. “Okay. I’m not quiet. I’m sure if you Wikipedia’d my ass, I would show up as the opposite of quiet. But that’s okay. You and I would get along like lime and tequila. You can make up for my nonstop talkin’ and I can make up for your lack of talkin’.” He nudged my arm with his. “We’re a perfect team!”
The smile returned to my face. I didn’t really know him but I liked him.

“It is… embarrassing.”
“Not if you don’t let it be.” His leg brushed mine as he turned in his seat, facing me. Our eyes met. “You have the power over that. People can say crap. They can think whatever they want, but you control how you feel about it.”
Damn. That was deep and mature.

I was going to throw myself a freaking party when I got home. Like an eat-fudge-icing-straight-out-of-the-freaking-can kind of party. Hardcore.

And it was knowing that I could still be…still be afraid of everything, but not letting that fear stop me from living.
The realization wasn’t due to some kind of earth-stopping epiphany. It was subtle and slow, a combination of a thousand moments rolled into one, but as I sat at the kitchen table with Rosa, I knew it was true.
I’d changed.

Forever.
I used to believe it didn’t exist. One word has terrified me as a child and it haunted me. But now I knew, and many small ways, but it was real, But it didn’t scare me anymore. Forever wasn’t a little girl cowering in the closet. Forever wasn’t the shadows sitting in the back of the class. Forever wasn’t doing what I thought Carl and Rose wanted instead of what I needed to do with my life. Forever wasn’t believing I was some kind of replacement daughter and that I was letting them down. Forever wasn’t being the one who needed protection. Forever wasn’t pain and grief forever wasn’t a problem. Forever was my heartbeat and it was the hope tomorrow held. Forever was the glistening silver lining of the dark cloud, no matter how heavy and thick it was. Forever was knowing it moments of weakness didn’t equate to an eternity of them. Forever was knowing that I was strong. Forever was Carl and Rosa, Ainsley and Kira, Hector and Rider. Jaden would always be a part of my forever. Forever was in the fire-breathing dragon inside me that had shed the fear like a snake shedding skin. Forever was simply a promise of more. Forever was a work in progress. And I couldn’t wait for forever.
 


This book is one of my favourites for many reasons, but the gorgeous writing style definitely tops the list. ❤
The Problem With Forever is by far one of the most moving and memorable stories that I have ever had the joy of reading. It touched on so many important and relevant issues in such a tasteful manner and it pulled at my heartstrings in a powerful way that few other books have the ability to do.
Each and every character felt so alive and I wish that they were. The protagonist, Mallory, was a very relatable character to me. So many of these quotes, especially the first one, really resonated with me, which is something that I wasn’t entirely expecting going into this story.
This book also served of a beautiful and powerful reminder of how lucky I am. There are so many blessings in my everyday life that are so easy to take for granted, and it’s wonderful to come across a stunning story that reminds me to step back and be appreciative of everything that I have. ❤

Review: Wicked

Happy Sunday!! I hope you’ve all been enjoying your weekend thus far. ❤
This morning, I am back with a review of the first book in Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wicked series. As a massive fan of her’s, I was a teensy bit disappointed with this read, but I still enjoyed it overall.
Happy reading!! 😉


Wicked by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: New Adult – Fantasy, Paranormal, Romance
Series: Wicked #1
Pages: 376
Publication Date: December 2014
My Rating: 3 of 5 stars
Read April 2020

Goodreads Synopsis:
Things are about to get Wicked in New Orleans.
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.
Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.
But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.

Review: Meet Cute: Some People Are Destined to Meet

Good morning, good morning!! I hope you’re all doing well. 
Today I have a review for a really cute anthology written by a group of very talented young adult authors. I’ve been slowly working my way through these stories since January of last year, and I had so much fun doing so. There’s nothing like a short and sweet love story to put me in a good mood!
Hope you enjoy!! 🙂

Goodreads Synopsis:
Whether or not you believe in fate, or luck, or love at first sight, every romance has to start somewhere. MEET CUTE is an anthology of original short stories featuring tales of “how they first met” from some of today’s most popular YA authors.
Readers will experience Nina LaCour’s beautifully written piece about two Bay Area girls meeting via a cranky customer service Tweet, Sara Shepard’s glossy tale about a magazine intern and a young rock star, Nicola Yoon’s imaginative take on break-ups and make-ups, Katie Cotugno’s story of two teens hiding out from the police at a house party, and Huntley Fitzpatrick’s charming love story that begins over iced teas at a diner. There’s futuristic flirting from Kass Morgan and Katharine McGee, a riveting transgender heroine from Meredith Russo, a subway missed connection moment from Jocelyn Davies, and a girl determined to get out of her small town from Ibi Zoboi. Jennifer Armentrout writes a sweet story about finding love from a missing library book, Emery Lord has a heartwarming and funny tale of two girls stuck in an airport, Dhonielle Clayton takes a thoughtful, speculate approach to pre-destined love, and Julie Murphy dreams up a fun twist on reality dating show contestants.

Review: The Problem With Forever

Good evening, and happy New Year! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start to the new year and new decade. Today I’m back with a review for one of my latest reads, The Problem With Forever, a poignant YA novel written by Jennifer L. Armentrout.
Hope you enjoy! 🙂


The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Young Adult – Contemporary, Romance
Pages: 474
Publication Date: May 2016
My Rating: 4.5 of 5 stars
Read December 2019

Goodreads Synopsis:
A story about friendship, survival, and finding your voice.
Growing up, Mallory Dodge learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. Now, after years of homeschooling, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at a public high school. But she never imagined she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet soon it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants and the truths that need to be heard.

Happy Friday, everybody! It’s time for another First Lines Friday!!
In celebration of it being my first week of university, I selected a novel in which the protagonist is also beginning their first year of college!

What if instead of judging a book by its cover, its author or its prestige, we judged it by its opening lines?

There were two things in life that scared the ever-loving crap out of me. Waking up in the middle of the night and discovering a ghost with its transparent face shoved in mine was one of them. Not likely to occur, but still pretty damn freaky to think about. The second thing was walking into a crowded classroom late.
I absolutely loathed being late.
I hated for people to turn and stare, which they always did when you entered a classroom a minute after class started.
That was why I had obsessively plotted the distance between my apartment in University Heights and the designated parking lot for commuter students over the weekend on Google. And I actually drove it twice on Sunday to make sure Google wasn’t leading me astray.

Publication Date: August 2014
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

Daemon will do anything to save those he loves, even if it means betrayal.
They must team with an unlikely enemy if there is any chance of surviving the invasion. But when it quickly becomes impossible to tell friend from foe, and the world is crumbling around them, they may lose everything— even what they cherish most—to ensure the survival of their friends…and mankind.

War has come to Earth. And no matter the outcome, the future will never be the same for those left standing.

Review: Wait for You (Wait for You #1)

Wait for You by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: New Adult – Romance, Contemporary
Series: Wait for You #1
Pages: 332
Publication: February 2013
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read August 2017

Goodreads Synopsis:
Some things are worth waiting for…
Traveling thousands of miles from home to enter college is the only way nineteen-year-old Avery Morgansten can escape what happened at the Halloween party five years ago—an event that forever changed her life. All she needs to do is make it to her classes on time, make sure the bracelet on her left wrist stays in place, not draw any attention to herself, and maybe—please God—make a few friends, because surely that would be a nice change of pace. The one thing she didn’t need and never planned on was capturing the attention of the one guy who could shatter the precarious future she’s building for herself.

Some things are worth experiencing…
Cameron Hamilton is six feet and three inches of swoon-worthy hotness, complete with a pair of striking blue eyes and a remarkable ability to make her want things she believed were irrevocably stolen from her. She knows she needs to stay away from him, but Cam is freaking everywhere, with his charm, his witty banter, and that damn dimple that’s just so… so lickable. Getting involved with him is dangerous, but when ignoring the simmering tension that sparks whenever they are around each other becomes impossible, he brings out a side of her she never knew existed.

Some things should never be kept quiet…
But when Avery starts receiving threatening emails and phone calls forcing her to face a past she wants silenced, she’s has no other choice but to acknowledge that someone is refusing to allow her to let go of that night when everything changed. When the devastating truth comes out, will she resurface this time with one less scar? And can Cam be there to help her or will he be dragged down with her?

And some things are worth fighting for…
