“Do you know what I’ve been thinking about all day?” With him, it was anyone’s guess. “No.” His lips brushed the skin of my cheek. “Finding out if you look as good in striped socks as you do in reindeer ones.” “I do.” His head slanted and his smile was lazy, arrogant. Predatory. “I knew it.”
I’ve never wanted to to the Cardi B “Okrrrrrrr” more in my life. I see you JLA!
Onyx is the second book to the Lux series… so if you haven’t read it please do! This series is easily a guilty pleasure, break in the monotony of average reading and diving into a sci-fi world I didn’t know I even wanted to be a part of.
Onyx follows more of Kat, Daemon and their families in their small town of West Virginia where things are getting even more… supernatural.
More men in black are showing up…
And is someone NEW trying to vie for Katy’s heart? *Cue jealous raging teenage boy.*
Things I loved about book 2:
-More powers, more possibilities
-More flirting and kissing
-Daemon’s sarcasm is (chef’s kiss) him not getting Blake’s (or is it Bart) name right had me LOLing
-More banter and Witt I lived for in Obsidian
-A little more story build and adventure
-creepy new characters
-a mediocre love triangle that brought to life the feelings between two love interests, bc every teenager in YA fiction is in denial of:
“oh he said he likes me? He doesn’t mean it so I’m going to do everything in my power to ignore what he’s saying”
NEWS FLASH Girls IRL don’t do that 😂. They are more apt to jump to conclusions than deny them.
What I didn’t love:
-I missed Dee in this one
-The push and pull of Katy drove me INSANE at times… I know I know we are young and what not… again… I just wanted to shake her
Now that I have torn through 2 books in 48 hours… neglected all of my PLANNED reads and ARCs for November… WHY STOP NOW?
moving on to Opal…. be back soon
Sarcasm, Banter, Humor-⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Pacing– this was a long one…. there were moments I felt I wanted to skim through but overall steady
Romance– in denial teenagers with way too many hormones
Steam level– “Did someone really use the phrase dry hump?”
