Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On Wednesday" which is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Here's the 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."

I really want to read this book. And I mean REALLY want to read this book. I love the idea of aliens living among us and hot aliens? EVEN BETTER :) Obviously I love a good action/adventure/romance/thriller and this book sounds like it is right up my street. I'm hoping for some serious chemistry and maybe a little bit of snark if I'm honest. Can't wait. Obsidian is released on 6th December, 2011.


  1. The cover is just appealing enough to me and I know that sounds really shallow, but it would put me off picking up. Glad you love the sound of it though.

  2. Thanks for your comment Viv. I love the idea of alien books at the moment :)
