The fates of Cinder and Scarlet collide as a Lunar threat spreads across the Earth...

Halfway around the world, Scarlet Benoit's grandmother is missing. It turns out there are many things Scarlet doesn't know about her grandmother or the grave danger she has lived in her whole life. When Scarlet encounters Wolf, a street fighter who may have information as to her grandmother's whereabouts, she is loath to trust this stranger, but is inexplicably drawn to him, and he to her. As Scarlet and Wolf unravel one mystery, they encounter another when they meet Cinder. Now, all of them must stay one step ahead of the vicious Lunar Queen Levana, who will do anything for the handsome Prince Kai to become her husband, her king, her prisoner.

Feature and Follow Friday #1

Feature and Follow Friday is a weekly meme hosted by Alison Can Read and Parajunkee. The goal is to meet new people and gain more followers in the book blogging community. If you would like to join in the fun just visit one of the host's blog for the rules.
This is my first #FF ever, I hope it's going to be fun!

This week's question:
Have you broken up with a series? If so which one and why?

Unfortunately, yes. There have been series that I quit before the end. Here are a few of them:

  • House of Night
  •  Sookie Stackhouse,
  • Fallen 
  • Hush, Hush 
These series were fun the first few books, but then they became boring, slow-paced and just not interesting. I might finish them some day, but not now. I have also read many first books of series that I just did not like and thus did not continue the series, but that would take ages to sum up:)

Forced to flee her city, Allie must pass for human as she joins a ragged group of pilgrims seeking a legend—a place that might have a cure for the disease that killed off most of civilization and created the rabids, the bloodthirsty creatures who threaten human and vampire alike. And soon Allie will have to decide what and who is worth dying for…again.

Penryn drives through the streets of San Francisco looking for Paige. Why are the streets so empty? Where is everybody? Her search leads her into the heart of the angels' secret plans where she catches a glimpse of their motivations, and learns the horrifying extent to which the angels are willing to go.

Obsidian (Lux #1) - Jennifer L. Armentrout [Review]

This review contains spoilers.

Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout

Title: Obsidian
Author: Jennifer Armentrout
Publisher:  Entangled Teen
Series: Lux #1
Release Date: May 8th 2012
Pages: 361
Rating: ★★1/2


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.
