Today we are celebrating Pure by Jennifer L Armetrout in honor of the Sentinal (the final book in the Covenant series releasing November 2nd) blog tour. Thank you to Val at Stuck in Books for hosting and organizing this tour. You are a blogger Goddess!!! There are several stops on this tour, so be sure to visit them all! This series holds such a special place in my heart. Whenever we had first started this blog almost 3 years ago, we stumbled upon a new author by the name of Jennifer L. Armentrout. She was coming out with a new book called Half-Blood. We thought it sounded amazing, so we requested it from Spencer Hill. We were merely tiny babes at that point in our blogging career (if I can call it that) with no real expectation of actually receiving an ARC. Then one day a little wheat colored packaged showed up in that mail with a return address for Spencer Hill. Needless to say, I freaked out A LOT! In the package was Half-Blood, and it became the first official ARC the YA Sisterhood had ever received. I took pictures of the package, the book and even brought it all to a book club meeting that night to show all my girlfriends. And, that was just the beginning of our love of all the JLA!
For out part in the tour, we are taking a trip down memory lane and remember book 2 in the Covenant Series, Pure.
Being destined to become some kind of supernatural electrical outlet isn't exactly awesome--especially when Alexandria's "other half" is everywhere she goes. Seth's in her training room, outside her classes, and keeps showing up in her bedroom--so not cool. Their connection does have some benefits, like staving off her nightmares of the tragic showdown with her mother, but it has no effect on what Alex feels for the forbidden, pure-blooded Aiden. Or what he will do--and sacrifice--for her. When daimons infiltrate the Covenants and attack students, the gods send furies--lesser gods determined to eradicate any threat to the Covenants and to the gods, and that includes the Apollyon--and Alex. And if that and hordes of aether-sucking monsters didn't blow bad enough, a mysterious threat seems willing to do anything to neutralize Seth, even if that means forcing Alex into servitude--or killing her. When the gods are involved, some decisions can never, ever be undone.

We loved this book so much! Be sure to check out our glowing review by clicking the link below. We also had a little fun on the original Pure blog tour. We hosted a Jennifer L. ArmenTOURNEY. Some of JLA's characters joined out tournament and battled it out to find out who were the fan favs. So be sure to go back and check that out! The link is also below.
For Alex - Knowing what you know about Leon, do you think there was more to him being the one to find you in labyrinth? Oh, I’m sure there was more to it.
For Aiden - By far, the zoo was the best scene in Pure. What did you enjoy most about being at the zoo with Alex? I loved knowing that I was doing something for her that made her happy.
For Seth – That whole sleeping issue that you and Alex have in Pure, did you realize what was up or were you just going with it? I would’ve just gone with it. But, truth? I knew what was up.
All the rumors you heard about her state aren’t true.
Well, mostly. When she's not hard at work writing, she spends her time, reading, working out, watching zombie movies, and pretending to write.
She is the author of the Covenant Series (Spencer Hill Press), the Lux Series (Entangled Teen), Don't Look Back (Disney/Hyperion) and a yet untitled novel (Disney/Hyperion), and new YA paranormal series with Harlequin Teen.
Jennifer also writes New Adult and Adult romance under the pen name J. Lynn. The Gamble Brothers Series (Tempting the Best Man/Tempting the Player) and Wait for You. Under her pen name, she is published with Entangled Brazen and HarperCollins.
