Pure by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Pure (Covenant, #2)

There is need. And then there is Fate 
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. 

When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude or killing her. 

When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

Review: Pushing the Limits by Katie McGarry

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.

But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

Orange County Children's Festival of Books 2012

Hey everyone!

A few weeks ago *this is a very late post* I went to the amazing Orange County Children's Festival of Books aka #OCCBF. Second time going, it was just as great as last year, no better! We had 8 people in our group, including 5 book club members, my brother (who doesn't read, but after OCCBF he is in love with Andrew Smith's Marbury Lens), and two of my brother's friends. 

September 30th, was a great day, so many amazing and interesting panels, books that I have been dying to read, and obviously BOOKS! But this year was also very special because I got the opportunity to emcee the whole event, AND I got to moderate/ organize a blogger panel :D It was beyond awesome!

So not only did I get to meet amazing authors, but I got to be on stage with amazing bloggers from the SoCal area and talk to other people. Overall it was tons of fun, though it was HOT. I stayed around the same area, just running up and down just so I could emcee-impromptu emcee that is-but I had an amazing time, and can't wait for next year! Now so you guys can see how awesome it was here are a few pictures

Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Onyx (Lux, #2)

Being connected to Daemon Black sucks…
Thanks to his alien mojo, Daemon’s determined to prove what he feels for me is more than a product of our bizarro connection. So I’ve sworn him off, even though he’s running more hot than cold these days. But we’ve got bigger problems.
Something worse than the Arum has come to town…
The Department of Defense are here. If they ever find out what Daemon can do and that we're linked, I’m a goner. So is he. And there's this new boy in school who’s got a secret of his own. He knows what’s happened to me and he can help, but to do so, I have to lie to Daemon and stay away from him. Like that's possible. Against all common sense, I'm falling for Daemon. Hard.
But then everything changes…
I’ve seen someone who shouldn’t be alive. And I have to tell Daemon, even though I know he’s never going to stop searching until he gets the truth. What happened to his brother? Who betrayed him? And what does the DOD want from them—from me?
No one is who they seem. And not everyone will survive the lies…
