June 21-June 27th
Hi all! I recently read the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and was inspired by her character, Katy, to start doing an “In My Mailbox” post! My goal is to post these on Mondays, with all the books I’ve collected (via online shopping, in person shopping, or Little Free Libraries) the previous week (Monday through Sunday). This is my first post and I am stoked to share what I got this week!
I don’t like to buy books on Amazon because Amazon has enough money, but sometimes I’m impatient and need to take advantage of that two day shipping. Also, the books in these packages aren’t in stock in the Barnes and Nobles around me, nor have I seen them in any used book stores lately. So, these lovely packages contain the five main books in the Lux series (which I’ve mentioned above). I sped through these books like they were going out of style. These covers are much more attractive than the other ones for this series; I love the colors and the theming with O names. I have the 6th book (Oblivion) coming in the mail from Ebay…I couldn’t for the life of me find it in the cover that matches these though (ugh). Oblivion has Daemon’s POV for the first three books of the series (I’m halfway through now and am SO glad it exists) and the 4th and 5th books are split POV between him and Katy.
This series follows Katy, a 17 year old, book lover as she navigates life with sexy aliens living right next door. The enemies to lovers is fabulous and the books are packed with sexual tension that’s to die for. I loved Daemon Black from the moment Katee’s eyes hit his abs and his take no shit attitude is fab. This series had me sobbing, laughing, jealous over fictional characters, and feeling every other emotion on the spectrum in each of the books (especially the beginning of book 5…good luck). I vote that JLA rewrites these in adult form or continues with Daemon and Katy college shenanigans…just saying. 😉
The other book I got this week was one I pre-ordered a while ago, and that’s Neon God’s by Katee Robert! This is a signed edition with the beautiful print of Hades and Persephone. I read this book the day it came out and haven’t stopped thinking about it since. The modern day Hades/Persephone story was phenomenal and, as usual, Katee Robert’s smut is *chef’s kiss*. I was 50 shades of blushed while reading this book. I may or may not have recommended it to all of my smut loving friends…it did not disappoint!
Well, that’s it for this past week! It was a mild week if I do say so myself! The JLA shop opens today, so I’m hoping to snag some of the Wicked Series and any other signed books I can get my grubby paws on! See you soon for another In My Mailbox Monday!
