Review: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Dark Elements (#2)
Released: October 21st, 2014
Pages: 464
Source: Purchased / Audiobook
Rating: 4 / 5

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden. Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what she always wanted, but with hell literally breaking loose and the body count adding up, the price may be higher than Layla is willing to pay…

Review: White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

White Hot Kiss by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Series: The Dark Elements (#1)
Released: March 1st, 2014
Pages: 400
Source: Purchased / Audiobook
Rating: 4 / 5

Seventeen-year-old Layla has never been kissed, because for everyone with a soul, her kisses are deadly. Half demon, half gargoyle, Layla has abilities no one else possesses. 
Raised among the Wardens—a race of gargoyles tasked with hunting demons and keeping humanity safe—Layla tries to fit in, but that means hiding her own dark side from those she loves the most. Especially Zayne, the swoon-worthy, incredibly gorgeous and completely off-limits Warden she's crushed on since forever. 
Then she meets Roth—a tattooed, sinfully hot demon who claims to know all her secrets. Layla knows she should stay away, but she's not sure she wants to—especially when that whole no-kissing thing isn't an issue, considering Roth has no soul. 
But when Layla discovers she's the reason for the violent demon uprising, trusting Roth could not only ruin her chances with Zayne… it could brand her a traitor to her family. Worse yet, it could become a one-way ticket to the end of the world.

December Wrap Up / Lesemonat Dezember

Hi guys!

Another month is over and we are full in January 2016 now, so I guess it is time for my December Wrap Up, to let you know which books I read last month and how I liked them :). As this is now my third approach for uploading this months wrap up, I am super sorry for the delay, but hopefully third time is the charm!

Hallo liebe Leute!

Ich hoffe ihr alle habt Weihnachten und Silvester gut überstanden. Da wir offiziell die erste Jännerwoche hinter uns haben, ist es Zeit für meinen monatlichen Kurzüberblick. Anbei also alle Bücher die ich im Dezember gelesen habe, und wie sie mir gefallen haben. Viel Spaß! :)
Da dies nun der dritte Versuch ist, diesen Blogpost zu veröffentlichen, hoffe ich dass es diesmal klappt und entschuldige mich bei euch, dass ihr so lange warten musstet. Aller guten Dinge sind drei!

Christmas Struggles + Merrybookmas

Hi guys!

Sorry for being away the last two weeks. The Christmas crazyness just catched up with me.
As I am helping Santa and the Christkind (yes I do believe in both) with presents and buying a tree as well as prep everything and baking cookies like a mad woman, I also attended traditional get-togethers for some Glühwein.
All of the above and the fact that I am participating in #Merrybookmas on Youtube this year (which you can find below ;)) got me pretty stressed out these last couple days and weeks.
Fun fact, I am not even doing as good with the daily videos for #Merrybookmas as I hoped.
This is just a quick post to tell you that I haven't forgotten about you lovely people who read my blog :). There is new content coming very very very soon. I promise you that!
And for now I hope you all enjoy the holidays and have a great time. Don't let the crazyness get to you ;)

So I am scrolling through my Goodreads and telling you which books I read in September, October and November, what rating I gave them and my Top 5 picks with a little synopsis. As this series progresses you will find more summaries and reviews in my monthly wrap ups :).
