Feature Friday #1

Hey everyone! I am so excited to finally introduce to you, Feature Friday. These posts will feature some of my favorite books of all time. I will be giving you all a little sneak peek into the book and also recommending it to you all. I’ve been wanting to do recommendations for awhile now but I’ve never wanted to make a whole recommendations post. So, I settled with a weekly non-spoilery review type of post. I hope you all like this idea as much as I do.

Now, if you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you could probably guess what the first recommendation will be but, if you haven’t been here that long, the first book is….

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout!

obsidianThis book follows Katy Swartz just after she moves from Florida to a small, unincorporated town near West Virginia’s Seneca Mountains. She never wanted to make the big move but finally agreed after she saw how much her mother was struggling with the loss of Katy’s father. And wow it was such a good decision for them to make the move! They ended up moving into a house right beside Daemon Black and his sister. They are stunning aliens who are hiding from their enemies. Katy befriends Dee but has quite the odd connection with Daemon. She likes him but also dislikes him at the same time. Unsure thoughts can sometimes end in love right? Katy and Daemon’s story is a must read for all readers! (well non-readers too but readers will enjoy it more)

You will definitely fall head over heels for Daemon Black. He is basically the definition of swoon-worthy fictional characters. The green eyed, tousled obsidian hair alien is one that you definitely won’t want to miss reading about.

This book is a book that lots of book bloggers can relate to. It’s not the rarest thing but, it is pretty rare to find a character that  LOVES to read in a paranormal/science fiction book. It is even rarer to find a book blogger in a paranormal book. But here you do! This book has inspired many avid readers to blog (like Katy) about their love for books (me included). So, I definitely recommend that you pick up this book just because, or even if you’re interested in blogging.

That’s all I have for today! I can’t wait to write up next week’s Feature Friday but until next time, happy reading! ~Alaina


Teaser Tuesday #10

Hey, look who remembered to post her Teaser Tuesday this week?! Meeee! I didn’t have a whole lot of homework tonight so I found a bit of time to blog! Also, I hope you all enjoyed reading through my new fall blogging schedule. I’m very excited for it and can’t wait to start my first Feature Friday post! If you have not seen my new schedule, please refer back to THIS post. Now without further ado, lets get straight into my favorite post of the week!

“The three High Witches were seated in makeshift thrones, little more than ornate chairs they’d found. The Blueblood Matron smiled as Manon pressed two fingers to her brow. The Yellowlegs Matron, on the other end, did nothing. But her grandmother, seated in the center, smiled faintly.” ~Heir of Fire, Sarah J. Maas

So I am currently trooping through the last 20 pages of Heir of Fire. It’s been such a good hofbook and I definitely cannot wait to get a blog post up about it. I’ve been enjoying everything about this book! But sadly, all books have to end. But luckily, I already own a copy of Queen Of Shadows so I will be diving straight into that!

If you have not read Heir of Fire, don’t worry. The excerpt I picked from the book is totally spoil free. The chapter that I was on during this week’s Teaser Tuesday was a Manon Blackbeak chapter. She hasn’t been my favorite character throughout this whole book (because Rowaelin slays) but she’s still a pretty cool character!

So that is all for today. I will hopefully be able to get more blog posts up later this week but for now, Happy Reading! ~Alaina
