My Favorite Pure Reviews - Guest Post by Stuck in BooksWelcome to Day 4 of the Deity Island Launch Party!
You knew I had to have Valerie @ Stuck in Books make a guest appearance here at Deity Island. Truly a diehard fan, she hosted the Pure Blog Tour, spews love for JLA like it's nobody's business, and runs an amazing blog to boot! She's definitely your "go-to" girl for all things JLA & Half-Blood and I'm so happy to welcome her the blog today.
Hey guys! This is Valerie from StuckInBooks!
Got a little trip planed for ya today! It's a trip around the internet to soak up the passion from some very excited bloggers talking about Pure, by Jennifer L. Armentrout (JLA). She's such an incredible YA author and man can peeps get excited about her books. I know I do!!!!
So first stop on this little adventure is Word Spelunking, where Aeicha reviews Pure.
Now check out the first line of this review!!!!
THREE WORDS: Holy Hotness Batman…three more words: all mah cries ;_;
Then there's this line that just sums everything I felt when I was finished with this book perfectly.
Breathless. Aching. Captivated. Desperate for more…this is how Pure left me long after closing the book.Yep, think that about says it all.
What to check out the whole review, of course you do. Find the whole fabulous thing here.
Next stop on our little road trip is Creative Reads where Shellie is a little exited. =)
Gotta love it!
Oh My Gods! I absolutely loved this book. I’m still stunned…and in awe. Aiden, Seth, Aiden, Seth, Aiden, Seth, Seth, Aiden?! Jennifer has, yet again, blown my mind with Pure. I mean Holy. Hot. Damn! There is so much that happens that I was left speechless and yearning for Deity. Alex has some difficult choices to make, will she make the right one and what does it mean if she chooses wrong?
I think she liked the book, don't you? Yep she does. Check out the rest of her review here.
So the next of is a little shameless self-promotion on my part - well I didn't write it but it was on my blog, StuckInBooks. One of my students wrote this one. She is an 8th grader and her favorite author is absolutely JLA. She bought Half-Blood and Pure with her grade money and then she walked around with them for weeks afterwards. I noticed one day when she was having a hard time that she picked up one of JLA's books and hide for a while. Made me happy. That's how I feel about books - they're good friends that make me feel better. That and I may have been the one to turn her on to JLA.
Enough from me - check out my girl Cora.
As I was reading Pure, I kept telling myself that I was just going to read one more chapter then return to reality but once I started it, I was sucked in. It’s impossible to put down. I read Pure straight through in about ten hours. This book kept me captivated. There just wasn’t a boring page in the whole book.Yeah, she's fabulous! Want to read the rest of her review? Find it here.
What's next? Well only the queen's of the tourney - none other than YA Sisterhood.
What did I LOVE about this review? Well, it's the mention of my boy Deacon - who I love. He makes the number 9 of the top 10 things they love about Pure. Check it out.
9. DeaconYou want to know what the rest of the 10 were? You can find the complete list here.
Aiden’s too cute little brother that follows in Aiden’s heartthrob footsteps. We don’t know much about Deacon so far, but what we do know, we like! He’s broken, just like Aiden, and keeps himself in a slightly drunken oblivion so he doesn’t have to deal with the loss of his parents. Besides his heartbroken demeanor, we love that he stands up for Alex, refusing to treat her like a half-blood.
Finally, I have this fab review to share from Book Passion For Life. They quoted one of my all time favorite lines from Aiden. *SIGH* I just love Aiden and for the record - I am TEAM AIDEN NOW and FOREVER!!!!
“Ever since I’ve met you, I’ve wanted to break every rule.” Aiden turned away, the muscles in his neck tensing. He sighed. “You’ll become the center of someone’s world one day. And he’ll be the luckiest son of a b*tch on this earth.” – AidenYeah, he's so ....perfect. Those silver eyes and the way he tries so hard to do what's right and it's all to protect Alex. He'd do anything for her. That is love.
There was more to their review, of course, and you can read it here.
So there is so much LOVE for JLA's books and Pure had rave reviews! Hope you check it out, cause it's epic!!!
As for me, well JLA has become my FAVORITE author. The more I read from her the more I NEED to read from her. It's a happy addition that I think she's pretty willing to feed! If you want more about my thoughts on this book, you can read my review here.
