Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy #2) by Wendy Higgins

Sweet Peril (The Sweet Trilogy, #2)
Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins
371 pages of sexiness (and so many feels)
Rating: 4.5/5

Anna Whitt, the daughter of a guardian angel and a demon, promised herself she’d never do the work of her father—polluting souls. She’d been naive to make such a vow. She’d been naive about a lot of things. 

Haunted by demon whisperers, Anna does whatever she can to survive, even if it means embracing her dark side and earning an unwanted reputation as her school’s party girl. Her life has never looked more bleak. And all the while there’s Kaidan Rowe, son of the Duke of Lust, plaguing her heart and mind.

When an unexpected lost message from the angels surfaces, Anna finds herself traveling the globe with Kopano, son of Wrath, in an attempt to gain support of fellow Nephilim and give them hope for the first time. It soon becomes clear that whatever freedoms Anna and the rest of the Neph are hoping to win will not be gained without a fight. Until then, Anna and Kaidan must put aside the issues between them, overcome the steamiest of temptations yet, and face the ultimate question: is loving someone worth risking their life?

The Collector (Dante Walker #1) by Victoria Scott

The Collector (Dante Walker, #1)
The Collector by Victoria Scott
352 pages of hilarity (and a lot of nicknames)
Rating: 4/5 
He makes good girls...bad. 

Dante Walker is flippin’ awesome, and he knows it. His good looks, killer charm, and stellar confidence have made him one of hell’s best—a soul collector. His job is simple: weed through humanity and label those round rears with a big red good or bad stamp. Old Saint Nick gets the good guys, and he gets the fun ones. Bag-and-tag.

Sealing souls is nothing personal. Dante’s an equal-opportunity collector and doesn't want it any other way. But he’ll have to adjust, because Boss Man has given him a new assignment:

Collect Charlie Cooper’s soul within ten days.

Dante doesn't know why Boss Man wants Charlie, nor does he care. This assignment means only one thing to him, and that’s a permanent ticket out of hell. But after Dante meets the quirky Nerd Alert chick he’s come to collect, he realizes this assignment will test his abilities as a collector…and uncover emotions deeply buried. (via Goodreads)

Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Obsidian (Lux, #1)
Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
361 pages (of pure awesomeness)
Rating: 5/5
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. (via Goodreads)

Spellbound (Spellbound #1) by Cara Lynn Schultz

Spellbound by Cara Lynn Schultz
324 pages
Rating:3.5/5
Life hasn't been easy on sixteen-year-old Emma Connor, so a new start in New York may be just the change she needs. But the posh Upper East Side prep school she has to attend? Not so much. Friendly faces are few and far between, except for one that she's irresistibly drawn to— Brendan Salinger, the guy with the rock-star good looks and the richest kid in school, who might just be her very own white knight.
But even when Brendan inexplicably turns cold, Emma can't stop staring. Ever since she laid eyes on him, strange things have been happening. Streetlamps go out wherever she walks, and Emma's been having the oddest dreams: visions of herself in past lives— visions that warn her to stay away from Brendan. Or else. (via Goodreads)

On My Blogging Virginity

I've never done this before. Making this blog was a spur of the moment decision that I made late last night (two or three in the morning, mind you), so I'm not sure how good I'm going to be at it, but I'm confident that it'll sound at least a little literate like the most amazing writer in the entire history of books was bestowing upon you the honor of reading her opinions. You're welcome.

I'll be reviewing books on here mostly, because I've spent so many hours staring at the words on a page and feeling so many feels that my whole body is numb to anything else. Like, if someone chopped off my index finger as I was reading a new book, I'd probably be too busy wondering what will happen next to think about anything as unimportant as a missing appendage. My finger is gone and spouting blood as much as the Trevi Fountain spouts water? Let me finish my book first and then maybe I'll consider worrying about it. Sometimes, when a book gets too intense for me, I'll sit in a corner and write, "ItsjustabookItsjustabookItsjustabook," on a blank sheet of paper until it's full whilst curling into a ball and rocking back and forth, sobbing because I'd prefer not to overreact. I'm a calm person you see. Zen, even.

I might post different stuff too. Like...updates on my life? That is to say, if anything interesting would happen for once. I mean, I know that staying cooped up inside my room reading doesn't give me much opportunity to find adventure, but I must be going to school for a reason. Because let's be real. Does anyone go to school to learn?

I'll try to update once a week. Or maybe a couple times? Or maybe biweekly? Hmmm... I'll try to update in the future, albeit randomly.

I guess I just broke my blogging virginity by writing this. I wonder if anyone will ever read it...
