Q: What hyped up book do you think was not worth all the talk?
Obsidian (Lux #1) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Please don't hit me!

I had seen this book everywhere. Everyone was reading it, everyone was talking about it and everyone was loving it. Daemon Black was appearing on many best boys in YA type lists or brought up in discussions as being outright amazing. I was looking forward to reading this one.

Unfortunately it wasn't for me. I found Daemon to be really infuriating and not in a good way. He was all over the place and he just turned into a big jerk. I did not see the appeal. As for the story it was too similar to Twilight I found. There didn't seem much else to discover after about half way and it failed to grip me after that.

I wrote a review for Obsidian way back in April when I read it. HERE!



  1. I AGREE WITH YOU! I was so tempted to put Obsidian for my answer as well, but damn, there ARE so many fans! They'll kill us! *hides*
    Hahaha! I'm so glad to see this answer on your blog! *thumbs up* ;)
    For me, Obsidian was hype. There!

    Here's my F&FF post.

  3. I won't hit you! I haven't read this one yet, but I still plan to. I just read so many amazing reviews, like you. And I do love Jen's other YA books. So I have to give it a try at least.

  8. Aww... I REALLY liked Obsidian! Sorry you didnt like it! :(
    I think maybe it was because I read Shadows first, so I kinda understood why Daemon was the way he was...

  9. You, my dear are not the first person that has said this. And the book trailer for the second book actually turned me off from reading the first since it is literally the two teens making out the whole time. I thought I was watching the lead in to an "adult" movie not a YA book trailer. Thanks for hopping! XOXO - Parajunkee

  10. I have added this to my TBR list but have yet to turn the pages. Sorry you didn't enjoy it.

  11. I've actually never read this, and have only just heard of it last week on the other hop... it feels to me like the "latest thing" and you're right, probably doesn't deserve the hype.
