Obsidian

Obsidian - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!! I love Katy, the main character, I love Daemon, the other main character, I love the story, I love the supernatural stuff, I just liked everything about this book. The main character, Katy, is hilarious, and witty. This book only took me two days to read on my kindle. The beginning was great, but kinda slow. The finding out stuff happens in the middle, but the wait was worth it. 

 

So, it's about this girl, Katy, who moves into town. She finds out that some of the inhabitants aren't "what they really seem", and falls in love with this hot dude who isn't "what he really seems", and yeah. I can tell you that she finds out about him and his race, which is kinda obvious. What I really liked was the witty and clever remarks between Katy and Daemon. Daemon was being a jerk to Katy, so Katy was a jerk back. Anyway, the story was really interesting as well. Creative, and smooth. This book was perfect, which is why I gave it 5 stars, duh. Though I necessarily don't have anything with common with Katy and her personality!

Cress

Cress - Marissa Meyer

I know that I had read this a while back, but, I haven't had time to review it. So, Cress was a good book. I didn't love this series as other people had. I thought it was just...great, but not absolutely amazing. One thing with the book Cress was the characters. I didn't love and connect with the character so much, there's just so much peole involved! I dont really like books with a lot of characters, except in Heroes of Olympus, where I fell in love with all their personalities. The characters in this series all act the same, even though one is a human, a cyborg, and a lunar. I didn't find much difference between all of them. Sure, there was a little difference, Cress was a little girl who had not that much confidence, and Cinder was brave and stuff. The main story was also a little repetitve, Cinder spends so much time planning, and not even fighting Levana yet. This book was also a little too long for my taste. Any way, I still enjoyed this book regardless!!
