I asked, they answered: so today we have…the Best Books of 2016 from everyone here at Binge on Books!
Our task? To pick one favorite book of the year, just one, and after a lot of grumbling, and dirty looks, and twitter angst, Erin, Alisa, Alex, Madison, Sara, Anya, Abbi (and me! Judith!) compiled our favorites just for you. So in no particular order I give you… Read More
6 days only. That’s right. Only 6 measly days until you can get your hands on the 7th and last book in JL Armentrout’s legendary Half Blood series! Sentinel will be out on November 2nd and to celebrate it’s a week of awesome build up to the release. Today is officially Half-Blood day here at I Love YA Fiction and we thought it’d be fun to repost a hilariously irreverent interview featuring Seth and Aiden (as imagined by Ellen and Judith) + our Half-Blood review from a while back. We’ll also give you an opportunity to win a $200 gift card (to buy more books obviously…and maybe share with Judith? No? Hey! I like free books too!)

Dear Charles: Do you like to make me cry? Do you? No, really! DO YOU?! I’m still sobbing into hubby’s arm while he just stares at me and tries to shake me off so he can watch some Youtube clip featuring MMA fighters doing whatever it is they do. Your book was just so good. Too good. The whole entire time I kept hoping for a miracle and I kept saying, this is going to have a happy ending. I swear, I can feel it in my bones. I just know it! Right, guys? RIGHT???!
Your list of your favorite books of 2012 was so large I had to break it up several times over! Here’s part 2 of your favorite books of the year!
Hi all! We’re excited to be one of the first stops on Jennifer L Armentrout’s Deity Blog tour. As we all gear up for Deity’s release on November 6th, let’s take a moment to reread Ellen’s fabulous review of Deity which Jennifer herself called the perfect balance of spoiler and review! It won’t give a lot away but it will make you salivate even more for Covenant book #3. You can read it here.
On to the fun stuff! Giveaways, an interview, and…more?

I know I’ve waited a while to write this review but it’s perfect timing since the next book comes out on September 11. WOOHOO!! I know you’re probably sick of this but since this is second book there will be SPOILERS from the first book. Please go read it!
Plot: Picking up just a few weeks after the end of the first book, the injuries Scout suffered aren’t healing and she has begun having dreams in which Alex is still alive and they are able to speak to each other. While dreaming during the full moon Alex tells Scout she needs to wake up and run outside…and it’s good he does because all of a sudden Scout transforms into a wolf. Which is shocking because she’s never done this before, none of her blood relatives are shifters, and even if she somehow got shifter mojo in her blood during the epic battle Jase is a coyote, not a wolf. Oh and to put even more pressure on her shoulders, not only is Scout in a difficult situation in relation to the Hagan pack (including Jase, Charlie, and Talley) but then the creppy dude from Alex’s funeral comes back to accuse Scout of all these crazy things…charges which could cost her life (duh duh duhhhhhhhhhh).
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press, 2012
Format: Real book, made of paper (which is so challenging after using my Kindle)
Of course there are SPOILERS from the first two books so if you haven’t read those then you should probably stop now (or at the very least read Judith’s reviews of Half-Blood and Pure). I’m also going to try to keep the spoilers from this book to a minimum since I know it doesn’t come out for a few months (there’s even a countdown on JL’s blog) and I don’t want you all to spontaneously combust due to intense longing.
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press; First edition (April 2, 2012)
Format: Kindle edition
Plot: (FYI MAJOR SPOILERS HERE!!!) Alex, the feisty fighting Half-Blood we met in Half-Blood, is back and training harder than ever at the Covenant with Aiden, the Pure blood Sentinel she loves, and Seth, the Half-Blood Apollyon with whom she has a freaky-deaky connection. As training progresses, her love for Aiden intensifies yet in order to protect her, Aiden refuses to acknowledge the romantic feelings they both share, alienating Alex and pushing her closer to Seth, the snarky man-whore who comforts her as she sleeps but annoys the crap out of her in daylight.
