On The List #12

My TBR list gets longer and longer every week. I wanted a way to share those books, so I decided on these posts. I might not exactly be reviewing these books straight away or any time soon, but you never know, I could review them next!
Books I have decided to share On The List this week are:

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.

Eeek, so this sounds like something I will really enjoy! It’s definitely down my alley of enjoyable sounding summaries. Obsidian and Onyx have been talked about a lot recently. So much so that I bought it myself on the thought that I will love it, which I can totally see myself doing, then decided to give all of Jennifer L. Armentrout’s other books a go.
Seriously cannot wait to read this!


Skylark by Meagan Spooner

Sixteen year-old Lark Ainsley has never seen the sky.

Her world ends at the edge of the vast domed barrier of energy enclosing all that’s left of humanity. For two hundred years the city has sustained this barrier by harvesting its children’s innate magical energy when they reach adolescence. When it’s Lark’s turn to be harvested, she finds herself trapped in a nightmarish web of experiments and learns she is something out of legend itself: a Renewable, able to regenerate her own power after it’s been stripped.

Forced to flee the only home she knows to avoid life as a human battery, Lark must fight her way through the terrible wilderness beyond the edge of the world. With the city’s clockwork creations close on her heels and a strange wild boy stalking her in the countryside, she must move quickly if she is to have any hope of survival. She’s heard the stories that somewhere to the west are others like her, hidden in secret – but can she stay alive long enough to find them?

I like the sound of this, it sounds interesting yet exciting and definitely sounds like a bit of adventure has been thrown in there. I’m pretty excited for this one! But I can see that there is a chance I might not enjoy it, I think that really depends on the way it’s written, with books that sound like this I always have a wary feeling because for me I always find it could go either way depending on how the plot comes across. I’m really hopeful for this one though!


What’s new ‘On Your List’?
