Throwback Thursday #34: Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Throwback Thursday is a bookish meme hosted every two weeks by me and Christina @ Booksane where we feature books that we've read in the past but are still crazy about. It could be a book you read as a child and still remember and love or maybe just a book that you haven't read in a long time and want to show your love for.
Each week we'll be featuring a new random question to answer!

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Lux #1
Read from August 06 to 09, 2012


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.

Ah, Obsidian... the book that started my love for JLA. I read this book two years ago and well, it's been one of those books that rocked my world. Four words: Daemon Black! Fuck yeah!

My palms itched to have a close encounter of the bitch-slap kind with his face.

Question of this week:
Last book you bought at a bookstore?

The Iron Trial by Holly Black and Cassandra Clare

How could I not buy this when I saw it? Honestly! Some books just have to be bought.

Next question (October 9): 
Most intimidating book you've read?
