While wandering aimlessly around Barnes & Noble, I happened to stumble upon two books that I love by an author I worship… and I purchased them! *squeal!*
Okay, that’s not how it happened at all. I was looking for two signed copies of these other books. Beginnings and Consequences just happened to be in that section.
I have no self-control.
Now, you guys have probably never heard of these books because they are better known as the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout. Beginnings and Consequences are the first four books in the Lux series combined in two collector’s edition copies with the shiny new covers, called Lux: Beginnings and Lux: Consequences.
Now, if you’ve been around my blog for a while, you know that I love the Lux series. I really, really wanted to buy the books to add to my collection…
And then I saw the collector’s editions with covers that are only slightly less cheesy than the original covers… OF COURSE I PURCHASED THEM!
(BTW, I saw, like, a whole freaking stack of collector’s edition copies of Eleanor & Park… *sigh* memories :D)
Anyway, I was on Goodreads and was looking at JLA’s profile, and you know how on author profiles, if the author is actually on GR, you can see their blog posts? Well, in this blog post by the awesome author, she says that… that…
THE FIRST CHAPTER OF OPPOSITION IS IN CONSEQUENCES OMG OMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMGOMG
And sure enough,
Now, you know I hate chapter samplers. But it’s Opposition… Can I resist the temptation?
I don’t think you understand how much I DIED when I grabbed my copy off the shelf to see that I was holding the first chapter of Opposition in my hands.
I’m so… so conflicted.
Should I wait? Should I… should I read the stupid chapter?!? UGHHHH.
What would you do in this position? Or maybe you are in this position. Gahh. Feelz.
To read or not to read—that is the question.
I would put a Hamlet reference in this XD What?! I couldn’t resist! It was staring me in the face!
