The Fall Book Tag

Good evening and HAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL! I cannot believe that the season is upon us already. Time has been flying, but I’m very eager for fall! I can hardly contain my excitement for pumpkin pie, Halloween, all the spooky decorations!
In honor of the first day of the season, I will be doing the Fall Book Tag, created by Bionic Book Worm.
Let’s get right into it! 😀

First Lines Fridays #10

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!
Happy reading! 😉

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.

And the book is…… Continue reading “First Lines Fridays #10”

First Lines Fridays #4

Good evening, my lovely readers! I hope you’ve all had a great week! 🙂
Today I’m back with another First Lines Friday, this time for one of my very favourite books…. Any guesses?
Enjoy!

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

Back in the day, I had this plan for the off chance that I was around for the whole end-of-the-world thing. It involved climbing up on my roof and blasting R.E.M.’s “It’s the End of the World as We Know It (And I Feel Fine)” as loud as humanly possible, but real life rarely turns out that cool.

And the book is…… Continue reading “First Lines Fridays #4”

Review: Opposition (Lux #5)

Opposition by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: 
Young Adult –  Science Fiction, Paranormal, Romance
Series: Lux #5
Pages: 533
Publication Date: August 2014
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Read April 2016 & December 2018

Goodreads Synopsis:
Katy knows the world changed the night the Luxen came.
She can’t believe Daemon welcomed his race or stood by as his kind threatened to obliterate every last human and hybrid on Earth. But the lines between good and bad have blurred, and love has become an emotion that could destroy her—could destroy them all.

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…

Review: Pure (Covenant #2)

Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Genre: Young Adult – Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance, Mythology
Series: Covenant #2
Pages: 329
Publication Date: April 2012
My Rating: 5 of 5 stars
Read August 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:
There is need. And then there is Fate… Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn’t exactly awesome—especially when Alexandria’s “other half” is everywhere she goes. Seth’s in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom—so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do—and sacrifice—for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies—lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon… and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn’t blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude… or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Review: Half-Blood (Covenant #1)

Half-Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Series: Covenant #1
Genre: Young Adult – Paranormal, Fantasy, Romance, Mythology
Pages: 281
Publication Date: October 2011
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Read August 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:
The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi pure bloods have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals–well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.
Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she’s crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn’t her biggest problem–staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is.
If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.
