Book Review - Alienated by Melissa Landers

Alienated by Melissa Landers

goodreads summary: 

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, though: 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. Threatening notes appear in Cara's locker, and a police officer has to escort her 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 for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

I rated Alienated a 5/5 stars. Honestly I love aliens, I would pick any book up without hesitation if it had aliens in it. So yes you could probably call me a Si-Fi freak! 
I heard about this book while watching booktube videos and decided that this was a book that I was really interested in, so I purchased the book online and I was so excited to read it.
Within the first 5 pages I was already obsessed! By the time I was 20 pages in I had already named this one of my favorite books! 
As I have already said, I love aliens, and in this book aliens have made contact with humans and Cara was chosen to be a host of an Alien exchange student, I found all of this so interesting and I had to find out what happened in the rest of the book.
It came to the point where I was excited to finish the school day and head home and read, How crazy is that? And I actually like school aswell!
Ok now it's time to talk about Aelyx, the alien who become Cara's exchange student. I LOVE Aleyx, he is definitaly an awesome character and he is most definitaly swoon worthy! 
Also I love Cara! She is so funny and brings lot's of laughs into this book, her sarcasm is to die for!
Lets talk about the Romance now, ok I have to admit, both Aleyx and Cara's relationship is pretty damn adorable. It's also really interesting because you don't really expect aliens and humans to fall in love do you?
Also this book is in both Aelyx and Cara's perspective so you get to know both of their feelings and thoughts about the new species they will be meeting.

Overall this book is AMAZING and I definitaly recommend this book to any Sci-Fi lovers or any YA readers! :)
