OOOs and OOh… (Lux Series 1-5) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

So I just read the entire Lux series books 1-5 in 13 days, loved it and of course like a book nerd, sad it’s over! Basically what you’re getting is a YA (Young Adult), SciFi, Romance book. If you’re not a fan of these types of books, you most likely won’t enjoy it, but if you are – jackpot.

This series is about Katy moving and starting her senior year in a new school in a small West Virginia town. She is a blogger and book nerd, therefore 14743935I completely love her character (there are other reasons to like Katy too). Her neighbors are a bit different, they are twins Dee and Daemon Black, they are aliens and not Alf mind you – yep, you guessed it the beautiful kind. But wait, they have personalities and fun quirky ones at that.

Complications, adventures, character growth, story arcs; it’s got it all. I really enjoyed books 1-2 and the hook was in me, by book 3 – forgetta about-it, I was/am a complete fan. Reminder, I read them back to back as my own personal mental movie series for the last 13 days and yes, I have a full time job and family to attend too☺.  Let’s not be petty tho on the attention of ordering pizza or other shortcuts that may have occurred during this time period, I plead the fifth.

So brass tacks – this is the reading order and behind each link you’ll find my Goodreads review, along with my favorite quotes from each book. Yes, most of them are sarcastic quotes from Daemon.

Presenting the OOOs & OOhs:
Obsidian (book 1)
Onyx (book 2)
Opal (book 3) Totally my favorite!
Origin (book 4) A close 2nd to being my favorite… ☺
Opposition (book 5) All things must end, epic conclusion and I certainly enjoyed the ride.

Book Review: Until You By Penelope Douglas

Rating: 3.5 out of 5 stars

I read this book via a whorl wind pace.  I will warn you this is book 1.5 of a series and I didn’t read the first book – Bully.  *Gasps from the crowd.  I know.  I know.

Most times I like the fellas point of view and this is that book.  Sometimes, girls get a little winey for me then…blah blah blah.  Anyway this is the book I choose to read and it’s a solid one; I enjoyed it.  Now if you don’t like contemporary romance (must be >18 yrs old), that has some steamy sex scenes then this is NOT the book for you.  To learn more, see one of my favorite Jared quotes and check out my book review below.

My Book Review (click on link):  https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/805669767

“Now, I could go on about mommy didn’t love me and daddy hit me, but who doesn’t have a story, right?” I asked. “There are times when we can blame a situation on others, but we own our reactions to them. There comes a point where we are the ones responsible for our choices and excuses don’t carry weight anymore.”
