Pure (Covenant #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Pure (Covenant #2)


Taste by Kate Evangelista




Finally! I feel super happy and satisfied now that I have read this book! :) 

Although I must admit at first I thought that it had a bit of similarities from the manga and anime Vampire Knight.  With the Day and Night Students and being in a boarding school as well. Not to mention the pills too. But, the story itself was still different in a way. While reading Taste I was very much excited into seeing what ill happen to Phoenix after the first chapter and her encounter with Dimitri <///3

The Characters:

I feel sad for Phoenix though, having lost your mother with a disease that the doctors were not able to cure is really painful and hard; not to mention that her father had been cold to her as well after that tragic loss is just painful. :(  on another note though as the story progressed I think things for started to be more strange between finding out about the night students (Zhamvy) and her soon being somehow temporarily turned into one. not to mention having a connection with Demitri, the guy who saved her from gettimg kicked out and being a meal of the night students she asked for help.

Dimitri on the other hand is someone who to me at first is a bit controlled. Like someone who always wants things to be in order. But as the story progressed, another side of him appears. Someone who wishes to be free from his duties to his people. he also cares for Phoenix though he doesn't really seem to show it that much at first. my favorite part was when he finally admitted (well sort of) his feelings for Phoenix:

“I am drawn to her, father. Is that not how we find our partners? We answer thecall from deep within us for another.” Happiness underscored my worry. My heart wanted me to run to Demitri‟s side then and confirm what he was saying. I wanted to defend him, to shield him from  persecution. But Yana‟s tight grip kept me in place. I couldn‟t move even if I wanted to.And a small voice inside me warned that if I said anything I might make this experienceworse for Demitri. “But you willingly entered a betrothal with Calixta.” Darius stated.Demitri nodded. “I did it for my people. I believed I would not be fortunate enough to meet the one who could change my world with one glance, one word, one kiss.” He paused. “But I have. I am fortunate. Like you, Father. Like you, Mother.” He looked at the woman beside Darius. Her face softened
 Luka!!! <///3 Awesomeness!!!  :)))) somehow at one point in the story I really thought he might actually end up together with Phoenix. Since he's like kind and somehow understanding of her as well! :))Not much to say about Luka really. :(

Fave Luka lines:

“I would make a better match for you,”
"I want her,” Luka continued. “Besides, you can never give her the kind of affection she needs.”
“Why not? When I see you, all I want to do is kiss you.”

Rating  5 of 5 Stars :)

Half-Blood (Covenant #1) and Onyx (Lux #2) by Jennifer L. Armentrout

 Half-Blood (Covenant #1) 


 The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures. Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden. Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem--staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck.

One word. Finally! Finally I got to read and finish book up! Well, WOW! didn't know what I was thinking not reading this book ASAP! Pure awesomeness!!! Fell in love with the characters here like whoa! so sad about what happened to Alex's mom though :( like really really sad. 

Aiden and Alex? or Seth and Alex? hmmm honestly? can't really say since Alex seems to be that kind of leading girls that could stand by themselves even though they don't have anyone to be paired up with. Aiden though in the story gives of that vibe of a best friend or older brother to me, but then again between Aiden and Alex, they are just so sweet together. I mean with all the SWOON SCENES that happened in the book, I think I really am strongly leaning to TEAM AIDEN  >///<. Seth is another story though. He seems like one of those bad boy guys you hate to love but you do. So I am still waiting on how Seth and Alex's relationship would progress with the connection that they have with one another.

5 Start ratings my friend 5 star ratings!!!! :))) 

**Only have a short thoughts to share since its been a while since I read this book :((( with all the college stuff going on :(((

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…
at last I finished this book. probably one of the books that took me ages to finish basically because of school stuff (product production) we have going on. but thanks to the sembreak I am able to finish it at last! :)

well what can I say about ONYX is ♥ lots and lots of  ♥!

this second part of the Lux series definitely made me love it more! Like seriously more!! and the Daemon x Katy moments! woohoo!! I felt really sad though when the truth came out, imagine having the people you trust be the ones who were actually betraying you :(( not to mention what happened to dee and adam :((( don't really have much to say but, awesome! :)) so glad Katy and Daemon finally admitted their feelings for one another already! :)   by the end of the book can't really help what happened to Dawson? 

 Daemon pulled his brother to him, but Dawson… He was just standing there, arms limp against his sides, his face as beautiful as his
brother’s but painfully empty.
“Dawson…?” Uncertainty carried in Daemon’s voice as he pulled back, twisting my insides into raw, nervous little knots that traveled up my
throat, getting stuck and stealing my breath.
As the two brothers stared at each other, with the wind blowing loose flakes of snow on the ground, sending them swirling into the night
sky, I remembered what Daemon had said earlier. He had been right. In that moment, everything did change…for the better and for the
^ seriously what happened hear? :0 

anyways! really can't wait for book 3 already! beacuse of all these new realizations in the story! :)  not just because of Katy and Daemon, but the other characters as well; especially Dee! love her! really wish I had a friend like her who'd still want to hang out even though she already has a boyfriend :)

5 Start ratings my friend 5 star ratings!!!! :)))

Ceaseless (Existence Trilogy #3) by Abbi Glines

Ceaseless (Existence Trilogy #3)


So  happy I finally read this book! :))) 

Awesome awesome ending to an awesome book :)loved the conclusion of this book series! :)) really really good! so glad Dank and Pagan did end up together :D

At first though I was really confused as to why Pagan didn't really seem to recognize, remember Dank, Gee, and Leif. Good thing though that is was explained :)))As I read the book everything is very much emotional for me from how Dank fought for Pagan to remember him and the love they share before her memories were taken away. From how Dank almost gave up on fighting to be with Pagan.It was really nice to get to see Dank's point of view in the showed a different side of him. 

Definitely satisfied with the ending! :)

"You’re mine, Pagan Moore. You will always be mine."

"You own me. Once you knew this. I’m going to make sure you remember."

"I already had to deal with the soul mate. I didn’t want to be forced to see her with anyone else. I was staking my claim."
