Aujourd'hui je vous parle de Grim Lovelies de Megan Shepherd et publié chez Castelmore ( @lesladiesdeledition )
Anouk est domestique chez une sorcière. Mais elle n'est pas que cela. Elle est aussi un animal transformé en humain. Mais lorsque la sorcière est assassinée, Anouk doit fuir pour ne pas être accusée du crime et risquer de ne pas retourner à son état originel.
J'ai été attirée par ce roman à cause de sa très jolie couverture ! Mais le contenu a aussi été à la hauteur 🙂
J'ai trouvé l'idée d'un Paris dans lequel une institution magique se cache assez intéressante et surtout la façon d'utiliser la magie plutôt originale !
Les personnages m'ont bien plu en particulier Anouk, Cricket et le maléfique Rennar mais j'aurais aimé les connaître un peu plus. Peut-être qu'une alternance de point de vue aurait pu pallier ce petit point.
Aussi la romance ne m'a pas vraiment transportée, je trouvais que le jeune homme manquait de charisme 😅
J'ai lu plusieurs critiques disant que l'intrigue était lente à se mettre en place. J'avais un peu peur du coup. Mais je n'ai pas du tout eu cette impression et j'ai trouvé qu'il y avait pas mal d'actions notamment vers la fin 😊
La fin m'a d'ailleurs bien donnée envie de lire la suite qui m'a l'air prometteuse. Si au début du roman Anouk est plutôt naïve, elle évolue et je pense qu'elle va devenir encore plus intéressante dans le tome 2 !
Tome 2 qui est d'ailleurs sortie le 19 février 😊
Si vous étiez un animal, lequel seriez-vous ? 😉

The deadliest weapon is a girl with nothing to lose... Sarah is used to spying in the champagne-fuelled parties of Nazi Berlin. But her new mission is infinitely more deadly – tracking a lethal disease across bullet-torn Africa, to uncover the monster who would use it to create fifty million corpses. Her enemies think she is a terrified little girl. But she is a warrior set to burn them all. #youngadultbooks#youngadult#readingskills
wenn ihr einen magischen Schlüssel hättet, wohin sollte er euch bringen? ✨
Ich habe mich für meinen heutigen Post mal ein bisschen von der Serie "Locke & Key" inspirieren lassen, da gehts nämlich auch um magische Schlüssel. Gestern habe ich die erste Staffel beendet und kann es jetzt schon kaum abwarten, bis es weitergeht! 😍
Und um zu meiner Frage zurückzukommen: Ich hätte ja gerne einen magischen Schlüssel, der mir die Tür in meine Lieblingsbuchwelten öffnen könnte. Wer nicht?! 😄 Ansonsten fände ich es aber auch ziemlich cool, damit in die Vergangenheit reisen zu können!
Nach sieben Skifahrtagen bin ich sowas von jenseits des Faschingstrubels wie noch nie. Dafür erlebt meine Protagonistin im letzten Kapitel meines Buches auf einer Faschingsparty einigen Trubel, von dem ich mich lieber distanziere 😂😉👍
Was habt ihr an Fasching Abartiges beobachten dürfen?
Einige Irre haben tatsächlich ein Dixiklo, in dem ihr Kumpel drin war, mit der Tür auf den Boden umgeworfen. Ich habe die Security gerufen und mich erneut daran erinnert, was ich an Fasching nicht so toll finde.
🌺 #kurzinterview 🌺Die liebe Anni vom @one_verlag wollte von mir wissen, welcher Charakter aus #verlorensindwirnurallein mir besonders ans Herz gewachsen ist.
Die Frage ist echt nicht so einfach zu beantworten. Schließlich habe ich ja alle Figuren nach meiner Vorstellung erschaffen. Im Grunde mag ich sie also alle sehr. Sogar das Biest Kathleen, da sie zur Geschichte einfach dazugehört. Besonders liebgewonnen habe ich aber Sky und Jeff. Bei Sky habe ich versucht, sie Seite für Seite einen Ausweg aus ihrer Lage finden zu lassen, habe mit ihr gelitten und ihr des Öfteren gut zugeredet. Und Jeff ist so, wie er ist, einfach perfekt.
Aber am besten lernt ihr die beiden und all die anderen aus #verlorensindwirnurallein bald selbst kennen und macht euch euer eigenes Bild 🥰
How y'all doing? life's pretty good right now so I hope that you guys are also having a good time... I decided to call up my good friend procrastination and not take a bunch of photos to post this week so here we are haha

Guess that means I’ll just have to drop in again this week 💁♀️

If you asked me to describe what this book made me feel 5 years ago when I read it for the first time, I'd have no words for you. It's the type of book that rips your heart out from your chest and holds it out for you. It's the type of book that you can't get stop thinking about no matter how many more books you read. It's the type of book that makes you feel both love and loss in their many variations, from soulmates to self love. I've never read a book quite like Eleanor & Park and I don't think I ever will. It's an emotion on it own. A life staple.

«Статистическая вероятность любви с первого взгляда»
Издательство @like_book ⠀
«Если люди познакомились в аэропорту, для них вероятность полюбить друг друга на семьдесят два процента выше, чем для тех, кто познакомился в любом другом месте.»
Случайная встреча в аэропорту. Казалось бы, ну что тут необычного, ведь люди встречаются тебе каждый день. Но Хедли понимает, он особенный, ведь между ними проскочила самая настоящая любовная искра. Ребята быстро нашли общий язык, прекрасно поладили и провели время вместе, и даже почти поцеловались, но потом расстались, даже не обменявшись номерами телефонов. Сведёт ли их судьба еще раз?
Сразу предупреждаю, что данная книга направлена прежде всего на подростковый возраст, так как в ней говорится о самой искренной, незабываемой и романтичной первой любви.
Просто легкий и ненапряжный роман для отдыха от рабочих нудней. Читается очень быстро, книга небольшая, написано хорошим слогом, понятным, даже простым языком.
Увлекательный, хоть и без неожиданностей сюжет с интересными небесячими персонажами и занимательными диалогами.
Лично мне книга показалась простоватой и предсказуемой, но мне, на минуточку, не 17 лет, и уже давно😂
В целом же, история неплохая и, думаю, отлично зайдёт романтично-настроенным барышням школьного возраста.
А вы верите в любовь с первого взгляда?
«Любовь - самое странное и нелогичное чувство на свете.»
The sun is all over us, shining at it full brightness. There is this heavy smell in the air today. There are many people around me, walking, calling, running. When I notice everyone turn by turn as much as I can, I can feel the sadness hidden in them. Today, everyone seems low and sad. That's something in the air today.
My heart is pumping really slow. My blood feels cold. It's slowing down. I am dying. I'll die. My mind is heavy. Eyes are full of tears wanting to jump out of my eyes.
Today everything seems low and sad.
It's the day which I wanted to remember my whole life.
It's this day. "It's her birthday." It's her birthday and I can't even wish her. I can't even see her.
I can even tell her mine today.
Who will take my chocolates now and eat it with me.
For who, I'll plan the party?
For who will I search the YouTube and try my best for the surprise?
For who now?
For who, I'll decorate my room, the walls,ceiling with my heart?
For who, I'll write ninety nine reasons why I love you?
For who I'll write long wishes, longer than the last one every time?
For who, pray now?
Year ago, exactly on this day, I was writing birthday wishes. Today, I am writing this, but I am sure it'll not be longer than the wishes I wrote.
The love is lost today.
I can't hold anymore. The tsunami is rushing out of my eyes.
I can't hold. It was today, when my eyes were wet, but with the tears of happiness, and it is today, when my eyes are again wet but, it's pain.
Today, I wish you wee here.
I wish my heart stops right away.
I want this sad, low, warm wind to take me away with it. I'll be in the air. I'll be able to be around you then.
Where are you? Why you left?
Today, I miss you the most. (Continue in the comments) . ..

Book 4/50 in 2020, complete.
I like to view myself as taking books and the movies that are based off them and look at them as completely separate entities. Yes, they inspire, but I usually find joy and contentment out of both things and love them both. I never usually favor one more than the other. This is the second thing I’ve read/watched and have VASTLY preferred one over the other.
While I enjoyed the book, it’s creativity, and the world... the movie is better, in my opinion. 🙈🙈

“It’s as important for female characters to have the same freedom as male characters and to not always be likeable or relatable. Even in our times there is a certain level of poison that emerges when women step out of place.”—Meg Caddy
Fascinating session with @moth_and_books and @brendanritchieauthor to discuss Meg’s book Devil’s Ballast based on the life of female pirate, Anne Bonny.
Jordan wants to study art but his parents send him to this prestigious private school. One, where he stands out for being one of the few kids of colour in his grade. As he grapples with these changes, and tries to find new friends while keeping his old ones, Jordan turns to his sketchbook to share his thoughts, fears and problems. So many stereotypes and biases play out, subtly and non subtly, and Jordan chronicles it as he tries to find a way to navigate this new shiny world. As someone who had been the new kid in her middle grade school, this book spoke volumes. For the first time a graphic novel won the prestigious Newberry prize, and we are not surprised it’s New Kid by Jerry Craft. Alternating between Jordan’s thoughts and his new and old worlds, this is one funny, bold and pertinent book about fitting in, bullying, race and friendship. And much more. #swipeleft

The Long Distance Playlist by Tara Eglington - 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5🌟
I must admit I was somewhat apprehensive going in to this book (as I am with many books). The premise just sounded really up my ally and had me intrigued but I never like to have my hopes up to high because then if a book isn’t what I’m expecting I will sometimes struggle through it. But holy moly was I blown away by this book. I just felt like I was reading a love letter not only between the characters but also towards the places in which this book was set. Place was such a huge part of this book but so was friendship and family and I throughly enjoyed it 💜 #books#reading#read#thelongdistanceplaylist#taraeglington#loveozya#bookstagram#youngadultbooks#bibliophile

Finished: How (Not) to Ask a Boy to Prom by S. J. Goslee
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
PUBLISHED: April 2019
SOME THOUGHTS: This book is basically the fake dating plot from To All the Boys I've Loved Before but with two guys and centered around prom. It's very cute, but that's kind of it. If you just want a light and fluffy M/M romance, this will be your book. If you want something with a bit more substance to it...it'll probably disappoint.
HOW I'D TAG IT: oblivious MC, fake dating, snark, socially awkward characters, prom, brother/sister relationship, fluffy
WHO SHOULD READ: To All the Boys I Loved Before fans, Becky Albertalli fans, Red White and Royal Blue fans, those looking for LGBTQ books with minimal angst and no characters suffering for being LGBTQ
MY RATING: Three and a half out of Five #bookstagram#books#contemporaryromance#romancebooks#lgbtqreads#youngadultbooks#yalit#youngadult#published2019#readin2020
I finally got the rest of the series in the mail today and I can now start reading a court of mist and fury. I’ve heard a lot of people say it’s their favourite in the series so I’m really excited! Also I know Feyre and Rheysand have some sort of relationship later on and I can’t wait for it.
★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★★ Written by N: “hi all, i know it’s been a while, but i had to come on here and share my love for this book. it reminded me of one of my favorite books “what to say next” by julie buxbaum. it reminded me in the way that this romantic novel was really just sweet and innocent. like the connection between them was so pure and cute. and i mean the male character is named david too, which is very ironic. moving on, i think this book talks a lot about the idea of “fake friends”. a topic that i think we can all relate to. i like how the author brought this concept up. through every page we saw how the two main characters become more and more real. like how they both just stopped ‘pretending’ in front of others and just go through major self discovery- all because their relationship triggered an understanding that they deserve more. and how their relationship was equally impactful to one another, it’s just hella awesome. i also loved the power of female friendships in this book, specifically with eileen and jamie. it was adorable and i think a book with the only relationship present being a romantic couple can be kind of dense, but this one had variety to show the different ways connections between people can be made. i also just loved jamie. her perspective was kind and understanding and relatable at times. like reading the novel made me feel like i was her friend (lol). i also loved david as well. i think it was really inspiring how his battle with cf pushed him to do things for himself. i think we can all learn from that. i also liked how the author puts emphasis that physical and mental health correlate. and i also think the idea of taking risks is a main takeaway i got from this book. i could clearly go on and on abt this book, but anyways, obviously this is a five star read. and i recommend u read it :)”

Day 22 of #authorlifemonth is for strengths. I think my strongest skill as a writer is in dialogue. I love writing awkward, poignant conversations the most. Those times where the character’s feelings are raw and close to the surface. This snippet is from my 2018 release BOOMERANG. The story of a boy who was presumed kidnapped, but who then shows up one day and must try to define himself, the idea of home, and come to terms with the idea that regardless of how much you love someone, people are flawed and imperfect.
This was my fifth read of 2020 and I gave it ⭐⭐/5. I found the plot lacking in any sort of character development and it had an inconclusive ending ("happy for now"), while it could have had a happy ever after quite easily. (SPOILER ALERT: Answer: Have Hudson also study abroad with Edie. Like it was so obvious...) This was my first #ownvoices book, where the MC has a disability where she sometimes misunderstands/mishears what is said. But I felt like that was ALL Edie was: her disability. The book left a lot to be desired.
From the book jacket:
Edie Kits has a learning disability. Well, not a learning disability exactly, but a disability that impacts her learning. It isn't visible, it isn't obvious, and it isn't something she likes to advertise.
And for three semesters of college, her hard work and perseverance have carried her through. Edie thinks she has her disability under control until she meets her match with a French 102 course and a professor unwilling to help her out.
Loveboat, Taipei by Abigail Hing Wen @abigailhingwen ❃
I am so glad that this was my first book to read in 2020 that was published in 2020! ❃
I loved how I was able to relate to Ever with her Asian-American upbringing. For majority of us, our career paths are pre-determined for us - as a Filipino-American female, you may as well be a nurse. I knew that was something I never wanted. I loved that Ever was able to let loose to learn to truly be herself and continue to do what she loves, and that’s exactly how my life was my first-year of college. Let me tell you, when I got that first taste of freedom, that’s exactly what I did too! As an Asian-American child, when you get older, you learn to appreciate your parents in a whole new perspective.... You see the sacrifices they made just for you to have a better life. I am so thankful for my parents for that reason, and vise-versa. Lastly, doing what YOU want and love my hurt others, but always choose yourself and your happiness. I loved this book so stinkin’ much, it was a book I definitely needed to read. ❃

This week I finished “With The Fire on High” courtesy of the amazing Libby library app!👏🏼 I’ve had my eye on this book since the first time I saw its beautiful front cover, and I can safely say after reading it that I was not disappointed. If you swipe I also featured the novel without its slipcover because I mean... WOW😍🥭
This is the story of teen mom Emoni who is a passionate cook and every meal that she makes seems to bring tears to someone’s eyes.
When her school announces the return of the culinary class that features a trip to Spain, she’s torn on whether or not she can afford it.
This book had a light aspect of romance with a whole lot of family love and I definitely really enjoyed it. There were parts that could’ve had a little bit more depth in the characters; however I do realize this is YA book and that’s could be why. Overall, this book was well written and made me want to try out every single recipe and makes you appreciate that family connection that food can bring. Plus, it’ll make you HUNGRY!
Her story is fun, sweet and inspiring and I’m giving it a solid 4/5 stars!🌟
Has anyone else read this one?!

Hi! 👋🏻My name’s Meghan, and I have a YA obsession now. :) •
Today, we adventured to @bluebunnybooks in Dedham, MA. It mostly sold children’s and middle-grade books (as it is owned by an illustrator, Peter Reynolds!), and it had a coffee shop right inside! Mocha Java’s has THE BEST coffee ☕️🤩 •
I bought two books: One of Us is Lying by Karen McManus (an Arlington, MA native!), and a fabulous poetry collection called Ink Knows No Borders. IKNB is a collection of poems centered around the immigrant and refugee experience, written BY immigrants and refugees. •
I am so excited to read One of Us is Lying. It was big on Booksta a little while ago - so I’m late to the hype 😅 IKNB looks so powerful and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite poems with you. •
Question: Do you read poetry? If so, who is your favorite poet or what is your favorite poem? •
I ADORE Sylvia Plath, Mary Oliver, and Rainer Maria Rilke. Their books rest on my nightstand and I read a few poems from each collection every night before I go to bed. 🤍 •
For probably half my childhood my favorite color was blue. Looking back, however, I wonder how much of that was me liking blue and how much of that was me wanting to banish all memory of the horrid pink my mom decorated my room with previously. Either way, it stuck. Now my favorite colors are mustard and coral. And guess what? Navy blue is an excellent compliment to both!
5 out of 5 stars. I watched the movie first and I really loved it. It made me cry, so I just had to read the book. I'm so glad I did. I loved everything about it. It is definitely my top read for this year. I liked Stella right away. But at first I thought Will was a bit obnoxious but I loved seeing his character grow in this book. The book was just written beautifully! And even though I knew what was coming, because of the movie, it still got to me and made me cry. I was so invested with these characters and I just want them to have that happily ever after they deserve! I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. It's just beautiful. Oh, and the cover to this book is just gorgeous. I love it! #fivefeetapart#allthefeels#bookreview#bookworm#youngadultbooks
I loved this book! I was feeling pretty neutral about it going in but I like books about internet culture commentary so it quickly won me over. The main character is a girl gamer (streamer) who is mercilessly attacked online (and eventually in real life) for her race and gender. Even as the trolling mounts she doesn’t know if she should stop streaming (because it feels like giving in to what they want) or fight back when it feels hopeless because there are so many people and they are using anonymous accounts. The other lead character is a boy who’s family doesn’t really understand their sons passion for gaming and developing games. Aaron works for an indie game company that constantly puts off paying him but uses his work anyway. It was an interesting story line about work and family. I also like how they handled Aaron and Divya relationship. Aaron was very conscious of their interactions and knew Divya was handling things on her own and didn’t need a savior. He was always their for support and was a good friend. Same with Divya and her girl friend. They were very good about validating each other’s emotions while stilling being encouraging and supportive.
My review makes it sound like the book had a lot going on (which it did) but it flows together smoothly and is an easy read! If you like gaming or just internet culture in general then this book is for you!

I got this book a bit late in the mail. I believe it was supposed to come in December but it came at the end of January. Got to love mail delay. I still wanted to feature it. We have The Mistletoe Matchmaker by Felicity Hayes-McCoy.
I have two questions for you today.
1. Do you read romance?
2. Do you read Christmas books year round or only at Christmas?
I don’t read a ton of romance but I read some. I tend to only read Christmas books in November and December. .
