Top 5 reasons Half Blood should be on your Wishlist

If you had been following me on twitter might have figured out that I'm in love with this book but those of you who are not.. This post is for you.

 Top 5 reasons Half Blood should be on your             ((Wishlist
(In no particular order))
Summary: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.

  1. The Story:I am happy to say that even though this book has a love triangle it has a story(usually these do not go hand in hand).Plus, the story DOES NOT FOCUS ON the love triangle.
  2. Believable Love triangle: Ok,first of all it's not EXACTLY a love triangle but there are two very HOT guys.Secondly,you can actually see why the main character has a hard time choosing.
  3. Aiden: This character is swoon worthy! He gets brownie points for not being a jerk/freak/meanie etc.(you get my drift)
  4. Sarcasm:I love books in which people are sarcastic and Alex is sarcastic,all right.Her sarcastic comments had me in splits,throughout the book.
  5. Pacing: Just when I got over the new world and it's rules BAM! Something else happened.

Still,if you aren't convinced you might want to check out 6 sentence Saturday on the author's blog .
Oh,one more thing this book does not have a cliffhanger ending but you still want to read the next book!

Expected Publication:October


  1. Excellent! You totally convinced me :)

  2. Both get her into trouble and make her life harder, but that much more entertaining for us. Although they make me greedy for more, I enjoy books that end on a cliffhanger, so I loved that every chapter in Half-Blood ended so suspenseful, upping the stakes that much more each time. Jennifer L. Armentrout takes Greek mythology and puts her own twist on it, making it unique. It was a great change from the usual supernatural reads.
