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.

Allegiant by Veronica Roth

Allegiant (Divergent Series Book #3) By Veronica Roth

Rating: 3 stars out of 5 stars

Allegiant is the final book in the Divergent YA series written by Veronica Roth. I was so thrilled with the first book in thisAllegiant_DemiJacket_WetProofTest.indd series, in fact it received a 5 star rating from me.  So you can imagine my excitement going into this last book.

However this quote from this last book sums it up well,

“I suppose a fire that burns that bright is not meant to last.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

My Allegiant Goodreads Review

I was ‘meh’ with the book and the story line direction.  Such a promising series and it was still good mine you, as I continued to read it to the end.  I was left unsatisfied with the tragic twists and turn aspect of the plot.  The author does stay true to the main character Tris Prior, but in the end I felt jilted that this was it, kinda like:

yes-wait-wtf

Book Quotes I Enjoyed:

“I wonder if fears ever really go away, or if they just lose their power over us.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant

“There is a difference between admitting and confessing. Admitting involves softening, making excuses for things that cannot be excused; confessing just names the crimes at its full severity.” ― Veronica Roth, Allegiant
