Monday Reads: Wicked by Jennifer Armentrout
Yup! I’m still alive. I’ve been inactive for like ages due to work, but as we all know, you can’t just leave something you are passionate about, right?
Well, hey, it’s Monday again. I know most of you hate this day because for most of you, it means the early morning routine (again…), traffic jam, and work. So, to save us from this desperation, we need something wonderful to look forward to, and for people who usually keep their nose in front of a book, what are you reading today or plan to read this week?
I was really captivated by “Uprooted.” I loved it so much that I gave it 5 stars! The plot and world-building are an absolute A+. I’m an avid fan of magical stories, and “Uprooted” did bring out a very colorful world to my imagination. I bought this book because I fell in love with the cover, and luckily the story did not disappoint!
While I did not like the last few chapters of “A Court of Thorns and Roses,” this book still leaves me wanting more. The love story between Feyre and Tamlin is spellbinding. It’s somewhat a mixture of both “The Beauty and the Beast” and the myth of Persephone but with a badass protagonist. I can’t wait to discover more of Feyre’s adventure now that… (spoiler)
But for this week’s “It’s Monday: What are you reading,” I kinda miss reading paranormal romance, so I’m picking “Wicked” (A Wicked Saga #1) by Jennifer Armentrout (one of my favorite authors). It’s been a while since I’ve last read Jennifer Armentrout books; the last one was last year’s “The Problem with Forever,” which is a contemporary romance that tells about facing your fears and the power of first love.

Synopsis by Amazon:
Twenty-two year old Ivy Morgan isn’t your average college student. She, and others like her, know humans aren’t the only thing trolling the French Quarter for fun… and for food. Her duty to the Order is her life. After all, four years ago, she lost everything at the hands of the creatures she’d sworn to hunt, tearing her world and her heart apart.
Ren Owens is the last person Ivy expected to enter her rigidly controlled life. He’s six feet and three inches of temptation and swoon-inducing charm. With forest-green eyes and a smile that’s surely left a stream of broken hearts in its wake, he has an uncanny, almost unnatural ability to make her yearn for everything he has to offer. But letting him in is as dangerous as hunting the cold-blooded killers stalking the streets. Losing the boy she loved once before had nearly destroyed her, but the sparking tension that grows between them becomes impossible for Ivy to deny. Deep down, she wants… she needs more than what her duty demands of her, what her past has shaped for her.
But as Ivy grows closer to Ren, she realizes she’s not the only one carrying secrets that could shatter the frail bond between them. There’s something he’s not telling her, and one thing is for certain. She’s no longer sure what is more dangerous to her—the ancient beings threatening to take over the town or the man demanding to lay claim to her heart and her soul.
