Author Library: Jennifer Armentrout

While it is always exciting to hear an author talk about their book, we also all have this craving to know what books on lurking on their own shelf. With the release of Jennifer Armentrout's Half Blood coming up October 18, what better way to celebrate than to see what books she's in to?

Some of my favorite books of all time are older books, going back to the days of RL Stine’s Fear Street series (which I still have) and LJ Smith’s Nightword series. I think I just dated myself there. My favorite book is probably LJ Smith’s The Forbidden Game. It was the first book ever to make me cry. My second favorite book is All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarqu. Other than that, I’ve never been a fan of books like Wuthering Heights and I never got the romance of Romeo and Juliet (I know, it’s a play not a book, but hey, you read it, so). Meeting a dude and dying for him days later is not romance. It’s kind of creepy.

Right now my library is out of control. I have a TBR pile that keeps growing and growing, with books ranging from Melissa Marr to an actual demon lexicon (research purposes). And yes, that is a Diagnostic manual for mental illness you see above my TBR pile.

Some of the books I recently loved and YOU will love too are Larissa Ione’s Demonica Series on the adult side, The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin, Carrier of the Mark by Leigh Fallon, Minder Series by Kate Kaynak, Demon Trapper’s Daughter by Jana Oliver, Personal Demons and Original Sin by Lisa Desrochers, and Leah Clifford’s A Touch Mortal.

And yeah, I have a secret stash of my own books, too. Thank you for having me!

Congrats on the release, and thank you, Jennifer, for sharing that and I agree on a few of your favorites there! 


  1. It's always good to know that were not the only ones with TBR piles falling off our shelves! ;)

  2. It was great to hear that Jennifer has a huge TBR too! I am so excited to get Half-Blood! I have had it pre-ordered for months! I was thrilled to find a kindred spirit of sorts in the favorite books!
    Thanks for hosting the interview!
