Hey guys!! If you are looking for something different, special, and pretty amazing to read during the quarantine, search no more: The City we became, by NK Jemisin, is here for you!

Every city has a soul. Some are as ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City? She’s got five.
But every city also has a dark side. A roiling, ancient evil stirs beneath the earth, threatening to destroy the city and her five protectors unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.

Hey guys!!! So excited today to share my thoughts on Queen of Nothing!!! I have been waiting for this book since…well since I read The Wicked King when it came out lol. So when I finally had my hands on this baby, I simply devoured it!

Power is much easier to acquire than it is to hold onto. Jude learned this lesson when she released her control over the wicked king, Cardan, in exchange for immeasurable power.Now as the exiled mortal Queen of Faerie, Jude is powerless and left reeling from Cardan’s betrayal. She bides her time determined to reclaim everything he took from her. Opportunity arrives in the form of her deceptive twin sister, Taryn, whose mortal life is in peril.Jude must risk venturing back into the treacherous Faerie Court, and confront her lingering feelings for Cardan, if she wishes to save her sister. But Elfhame is not as she left it. War is brewing. As Jude slips deep within enemy lines she becomes ensnared in the conflict’s bloody politics.And, when a dormant yet powerful curse is unleashed, panic spreads throughout the land, forcing her to choose between her ambition and her humanity…

Hello les dragons,

Est ce que certains d’entre vous on lu Le livre perdu des sortilèges? Vous savez, la trilogie de Déborah Harkness avec des sorcières, des vampires, des démons et des voyages dans le temps??? Je l’avais ADORÉE (même si maintenant je trouve Matthew beaucoup trop contrôlant), surtout de part son univers hyper complexe et bien écrit, le contexte historique changeant et un système magique fascinant,. Bref, je ne suis pas là pour vous parler de la trilogie originale mais du dernier livre de Harkness, qui se passe dans le même univers, avec les mêmes personnages… mais on se concentre ici sur Marcus et Phoebe, qui étaient plus des figurants dans le premier livre!

Hello les dragons! Je vous retrouve en ce début d’année avec une chronique malheureusement fort négative… celle d’Un hiver scintillant, ce recueil de 3 nouvelles de Nora Roberts qui me semblait parfait pour les fêtes. J’avais été un peu refroidi par le Bonheur en cadeau, mais je voulais y croire encore, et j’ai donc tenté une nouvelle fois Nora Roberts ( que je connaissais déjà par certaines romances paranormales que j’avais apprécié). Et bien c’était la dernière. On ne m’y reprendras plus! Et je vous explique plus en détails pourquoi ci-dessous.

Hello book dragons!

I just finished An Assassin’s guide to love and treason and IT WAS SO GOOD! I read it in a bit more than a day (lol, I guess two days right?), I simply couldn’t put it down, from the beginning to the end. It had been quite a while I hadn’t read a book like that, but it was so worth it!

Hello les dragons! La première neige est déjà arrivée ici, et mes journées de vacances se passent principalement avec un livre à la main (ou à rattraper mon retard dans Danse avec les stars!).  Je vais bientot avoir pleins de nouvelles chroniques prêtes pour vous, et je fais des lectures extras. Mais pour le moment, je reviens sur Maybe Not, que j’ai lu il y a quelques temps déjà!
