Plot: When Katy's mom moves her to West Virginia, the summer before her senior year, she thinks she's in for thick accents, bad internet access, and an overall boring year. Until she meets her hot neighbor next door. She quickly becomes friends with his twin sister, Dee, but Daemon's arrogant and wants nothing to do with Katy. Katy and Dee spend a lot of time together before school starts, but there's something different about her new neighbors. Something alien.

My Thoughts: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout starts off a little slow. But after a few chapters of introduction, you're thrust into the alien world of West Virginia. In the beginning I was right with Katy, hating Daemon. Every time he spoke, I wanted to throw my book at the wall, but as I turned the pages, he got more and more sensitive, and I could tell his real intentions. It was very heart warming to see the protection Daemon had for his sister and how much he was willing to do to keep her safe. I can't wait for the sequel and will definitely be one of the first to pick it up. I can highly recommned this book to anyone who like supernatural action, with a love story on the side.

The Rise of Nine

Plot: In the third installment of the Lorien Legacies series, the Mogadorians continue to hunt down the rest of the Garde. with the stakes higher than ever the John Six, and Seven need to find the rest of the Garde to save not only their home planet Lorien, but their new found home, Earth. John was able to rescue Nine from the Mogadorian's West Virginia base, but there's still five members left and time is running out.
My Thoughts: It's been a while since I read this book, not gonna lie. Pittacus Lore's novels always capture my attention and keep my eyes glued to the pages until I turn the last one and The Rise of Nine was no different. The details Lore provides us with is incredible. The dialogue is both terrifying and witty and the story line's always have a twist to them. Ever since I first read I Am Number Four I've been a fan of this series. And every time I finish one it's like the next one can't be released fast enough. I get so wrapped up in the characters and the fate of both planets, knowing that at any moment something could change for the better or worse. Anyone who has not read this series or gave up along the way, pick it up again. You won't be disappointed. Each book gets better than the last.
