Experience the epic love story of OBSIDIAN as told by its hero, Daemon Black…
I knew the moment Katy Swartz moved in next door, there was going to be trouble. Lots of it.
And trouble’s the last thing I need, since I’m not exactly from around here. My people arrived on Earth from Lux, a planet thirteen billion light years away. Plus, if there’s one thing I know, it’s that humans can’t be trusted. We scare them. We can do things they only dream about, and honestly, we make them look weak as hell. ‘Cuz they are.
But Kat is getting to me in ways no one else has, and I can't stop myself from wanting her―or wanting to use my powers to protect her. She makes me weak, and I’m the strongest of our kind, tasked with protecting us all. So this one simple girl…she can mean the end for us. Because the Luxen have an even bigger enemy―the Arum, and I need to stay on my game.
Falling for Katy―a human―won't just place her in danger. It could get us all killed, and that’s one thing I’ll never let happen...


      The hotly-anticipated follow-up to New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout's mega-selling Lux series, written from the point of view of Daemon Black. What more could you ask for?! I've been waiting for this for what feels like an eon. It's not that Jen didn't help. She did by providing different scenes in Daemon Pov, but still it wasn't enough! So to say I'm at the cloud nine,is understating it. I hope you all are with me when I say that this is going to be one of our epic reading. Here's a teaser.....

     Her steps were tentative as she neared the porch, as if she was still debating if she really wanted to walk into the house. The woman, who I was guessing was her mom based on the similar dark hair, had left the front door open. The girl stopped at the bottom of the steps. I sized her up as I drifted silently through the trees. 
  She appeared of average height. Actually, everything about her seemed average—her dark brown hair, pulled back from her face in a messy knot; her pale, roundish face; her average weight—definitely not one of those skinny girls I hated— and her…
   Okay. Not all of her appeared average. My gaze was hung up on her legs and other areas. Damn, they were nice legs. 
The girl turned around, facing the forest as her arms folded along her waist, just below her chest. Okay. Two areas in particular were not average.
She scanned the line of trees and her gaze stopped— stopped right where I was standing. My hands opened at my sides, but I didn’t move, didn’t dare force my lungs to take a breath. She stared right at me.
 But there was no way she could see me. I was too hidden among the shadows. A handful of seconds passed before she unfolded her arms and turned, slowly heading into the house, leaving the door wide open behind her.

Be sure to add this on your TBR list!,

Some Important Revisals

 Hello fellow readers,
                      So some of you may remember that I started a blog feature called 'Wednesday Wonders', where every wednesday I used to post a book review. Well, I'm quite revising the feature now. You see in order to post these reviews, I had to complete a book in a very hurried manner, which was really frustrating, especially for those books which I would have loved to read slowly.

So basically every week I used to start a new book and I was like..

And then I'm so into it that I'm like....

And then I remember it's Wednesday and I need to hurry and I'm like...

Then at last I decided that this can't go on. So from now, I'm gonna write the reviews when I finished the books at my own pace. (yeah, you heard me right!)

         But then what about "Wednesday Wonders"? No worry! It's still gonna be there, but from now It will about the upcoming book release that I'm excited about.  Remember? Wednesday Wonders , book you ought to look out for? I guess it was fated from the begining.

So for now, 

Adios, Sayonara , Hasta-la-vista.

My Review

"Mind blowing story that will leave you breathless with its emotion-drive angst and its twist & turns. CoHo has created a masterpiece there."

            There are many types of books. Some disappoint you, where others are beyond your expectations. Some earns a very special place in your life, while others just steal your heart & soul. Colleen Hoover’s November 9 is the latter one. To say that it scarred me is not enough. Actually, there are no words to describe what it did to me. Its official- CoHo left me speechless.

"I didn't think you needed rescuing. I just sometimes find it difficult to control my indignation in the presence of absurdity."

"If she's not careful. I might just fall in love with her. Tonight."

"When you find love, you take it. You grab it with both hands and you do everything in your power not to let it go. You can't just walk away from it and expect it to linger until you're ready for it."

"You'll never be able to find yourself, if you're lost in someone else."

"Loving someone doesn't just include that person, Ben. Loving someone means accepting all the things and people that person loves, too. And I will. I do. I promise."

                      So basically, the story revolves around the date November 9 and its different impact and importance on Ben and Fallon’s life. Ben and Fallon are two strangers whose lives get crossed on November 9.  But even the even the little sparks (more like fireworks) of attraction and tentative hope of more in the future, doesn’t change the fact that Fallon is moving to the opposite part of the country in few hours. So they make a pact of meeting on (Yes, you guessed it right!)November 9 for the next five years and see how life plays with them and if they still wants to be together. Till now you are thinking, well what is so special about that? See I know the concept is not that original, but the story..... As I said before, it’s astonishing.
                 CoHo has skilfully written this masterpiece. The moment you think you know what’s gonna happen next, you are left floored. You become curious to know more, so you keep turning the page and then you discover you have almost reached the end. And the end, God! I could have never imagined how wormed, the thread of their lives (Ben and Fallon’s) were.
            At last I could only say, that November 9 is not the book to be read, but it is to be devoured. And it’s apparent that anyone who has not read this has not lived their life to the fullest. I hope you are not gonna be one of them!

My Review

Scottish package full of swoon- worthy moments, steamy scenes and tearful reunions, One King's Way is a boon to all those who are not ready to say goodbye to the ODS series yet. Hats Off to Young, who still has the power to make her readers live.

On Dublin Street has been the starting point of my girl crush with Samantha Young. She had me in her snare from the moment I met Joss & Braden. And from then, I've been obsessively stalking this series. So to find out, that one more member was added in the ODS family was cherry at the top! I was really curious to know what happen with Craig, since the moment I read that he moved to another continent in the Down London Bridge (Book 2), and viola` Samantha fulfilled my wish (My genie`!).
      "I can't promise what will happen in the future; no one can. But I can promise that I want to be with you."
   "When our eyes met again were filled with something... something I couldn't identify. "What?" I said softly. "I think you just might be more than a little magnificient," he said."
"I can't imagine ever loving another woman the way that I love you."

The story mainly revolves around Craig & Rain's intense relationship. Its written in dual POV. Craig, who we met in the first book of ODS series (Hint: bartender who kissed Joss for fun), is basically the laid-out-one night-stand-no-serious relationship-scot, who absolutely adore his family. (Don't we always fall for these guys?)  Rain is the new addition, but you won't feel like you don't know her. Just like in every other Young's story, you get attached with the character and starts to see the story going through their point of view. I could fully understand every actions and reactions of the characters which basically was the ultimate reason of my overwhelming emotions. 

            There are countless quirky-chuckle-inducing dialogues and heart-twisting moments, which are the trademarks of the Samantha Young's writings. I honestly believe she has the power to change a stone cold statue to a sopping mess. So even thinking about rating her story less than 5 Stars feels like a catastrophe. At the end all I want to say is that if you think about missing on this, then man you're missing it so large. And to those who haven't even started reading this series? What are you doing here? Go and buy the book !
