Waiting on Wednesday {12}



see this lovely picture? It was made by Lindsay at The Violet Hour. Thank you so much for letting others use it!

Jill @ Breaking the Spine hosts this weekly meme where we can share a book that we are so excited for and are anxiously awaiting their upcoming release!

This week my WoW pick is...

Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout



I've read some early reviews for Obsidian (glowing ones!) about how good it is. Plus, I kind of like these new alien/superhuman books that have been coming out recently. I'm really excited that this one's coming from Entangled Publishing too, because after reading Touch from them, I think we're going to see a LOT of good YA books from them- something I really enjoy because they tend to read a little bit older than other YA books. And after reading Covenent's Daimon prequel, I already know that Jennifer is a supremely talented writer :)

Goodreads Synopsis:
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.



What book are you waiting on this week? Do you have any interest in alien books like this one? Tell me more about it by leaving me a comment :)
