So the first thing you will notice when you read this post is my blog looks different!! Today I decided to give my blog a makeover and make it a lot easier for you guys to navigate around it and see what sort of stuff I’ve been posting (Book Reviews & Book Recomendations tabs at the top will navigate you to my post related to these titles). I’ve also added tabs that link you directly to my other forms of social media (I.e my book Instagram, my book Twitter & my book YouTube – I’ll be posting new videos on that ASAP). Today’s post will be a review so here we go…
Alienated is the first instalment in a two part light, romantic sci-fi series by Melissa Landers.
About The Author

Alienated and Invaded are availible from Disney Hyperion and the stand alone novel Starlight will release Feburary 2, 2016.
Two years ago, the aliens made contact.
Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them. Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket. Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing through; no human boy is this good-looking.
But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, midtown high school suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Theretening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort Cara and Aelyx to class. Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard to find him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and it’s potentially deadly concequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life – no just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
THIS BOOK. AHHHHHH!!! I read this book in just under two days…(that’s really quick for me because depending on the book I can be a slow reader). I’ve never read a sci-fi kinda book before It was so much fun reading a style I hadn’t before and I loved the sci-fi elements. This book mainly surrounds the storyline of the two characters Cara and Aelyx. Cara is a normal human teenage girl who strives to achieve. Aelyx is a born clone, wannabe scientist, teenage boy from the planet L’eihr. The two come together in the L’eihr student exchange program and that is where the story begins. I’m not gonna mention much more because I don’t want to ruin the book for anyone but I couldn’t recommend this book highly enough. What I loved most about this book was the unsuspected plot-twists (I know that sounds so weird!) I actually really enjoyed when everything I thought I knew and understood changed as it made me even more eager to continue the book. I’m so sad at the moment that I’m unable to get the second book yet because in my country it isn’t out in paperback yet so I’m going to keep looking online in hopes of finding it because I’m absoloutely dying to read it!!! Thankyou Melissa for such an amazing first experience at a sci-fi themed novel and I cannot wait to read more books like this!! I am most definitely a L’annabe!!
I reccomend this book for anyone!!! I feel it’s a style everyone could enjoy especially sci-fi / alien lovers 🙂
For an action filled sci-fi romantic contemporary that I couldn’t get enough of I give this book 5/5 Stars ⭐️
