Waiting on Wednesday: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armenttrout

Waiting on Wednesday is a meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that features future books I'm highly anticipating for this year . 


by Jennifer Armentrout

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.

Released December 2011

I can't wait to read Jennifer L. Armentrout's new YA book! Wendy over at Mocha Latte Reads just posted her review and it only makes me want to read the book even more!

    My WoW

  2. Grr, I went to post a comment before, but it decided to screw up.

    But anyway, great choice! I've seen this book around a bit and will definitely have to check it out. =D

  3. This one sounds so good and I just love the cover. Great pick!

  4. That sounds fresh and original. I will definitely have to check it out. Going to need to jot this one down, because Chapters doesn't seem to want to let it pop up. Hmm... I guess I'll add it to my amazon list instead. I hope I remember I put it there.

  5. I saw MochaLatte's review on it also. I can't wait for it. Do you follow Armentrout on Twitter ? She is great ! She had a live chat today, so hopefully she will do another.

  6. I picked this for my weekly feature My Big, Fat TBR Pile two weeks ago! I've heard AMAZING things about her first book, Half-Blood, so I can only expect the same from this one. It kinda sounds like I Am Number Four, right? I can't wait to get my hands on this!

  16. Ooo Daemon sounds like a sexy man beast. I haven't heard of this but I'll have to add it. I haven't really read too many all-out sci-fi romances though so I'm still leery about the genre.
