Waiting on Wednesday: Obsidian

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is: 

Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout
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.

Release Date: December 6, 2011

I don't know about you, but that synopsis just makes me SO excited to read this book! We've read about vamps and weres and witches and fey... but ALIENS? Heck yes! :)

Plus, it's written by the ever-amazing author of Half-Blood, Jennifer L. Armentrout! After loving her first book, I have to say that it only makes me doubly excited for this one!




  1. Yeah, it does sounds great...but also very familiar! I'm hoping it's just not one of those books that is a total let down. ;(

  2. I can't wait for this one either!!!!!! I mean if it's even half as good as Half Blood I'll be happy :P

    Feel free to check out my WOW
    Krazyyme @ Young Readers

  3. I've read Armentrout's fae and vampires - aliens could be very fun. I have high hopes for this book too, it looks so different from what she usually does. :)

    My WoW this week

  4. I haven't really considered reading this book, but if you're eagerly awaiting it then obviously I need to read it, since we're so similar :) Great pick Mimi!

  5. Happy Wednesday to the (consistently) best commenter ever! :)

  6. Oh, absolutely! I can't wait to read this one too. I read an early mini review on it and apparently it's just incredible! But this will be at the top of my TBR list for December for sure!

  8. YA needs more aliens, so this sounds awesome. I'm a little surprised to see the spelling of the main male character's name. It automatically made me think this was a book about demons, but then again, maybe I've read too much Greek mythology.

    WOW @ Working for the Mandroid

  9. Well, I've read about vampire aliens before and I loved them, so aliens aliens shouldn't be hard for me to get on board with, plus those green eyes....*melts*

  10. I have an issue with aliens.... but I totally want to read this one!!

  11. OMG! I loved the cover and the synopsis ofcourse! can't wait myself! December 6th is sooo far away!

  12. I haven't heard of this one until now, but it sounds fun. It kinda makes me want to go watch Roswell again :P

  13. Interesting! Not sure if I could handle aliens...but otherwise, sounds fun!

  14. :D I LOVED HALF-BLOOD! I can't wait to read OBSIDIAN! ^_^ Never heard about hot aliens before, but I'm willing to try! Great pick for WoW!

  15. this is a cool cover! i follow you here! :) stop by my blog and let me know what you think of my pick? There's also a giveaway on my author group's blog for some signed books!

  16. Oh hell yes. Definitely reading this one. I only hope the um... tension ;) is well written and not a let down :D

    See what’s on my wishlist this week
