it's monday

A weekly event hosted by Kathryn at the Book Date to discuss your reading week ~ the books you’ve read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.

Finished Last Week
The alchemist of Loom by elise Kova
the alchemists of loom

Her vengeance. His vision.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.

Peacock by Nora Flite and Allison Starwood

The bet was simple: All I had to do was make a guy fall in love with me in one week. Normally I’d never take such a crazy dare, but I could REALLY use the cash… so how could I say no?
Then I met him: my mystery date.
Simon “Peacock” Cavanaugh. Or better yet, just call him Simon the C*#k. He’s rude, perverse, and his good looks make me hate him even more.
Falling in love with a guy like him… it might be impossible.
But that’s a relief, because really, why would I WANT to be head over heels for a man that’s more dick than heart? A guy who thinks a good first date is hooking up in an alley?
This simple bet is going haywire.
Simon is a player who says he doesn’t do romance. I know I’ll never let a bad boy like him close to my heart.
What if we’re both wrong?

 A la place du coeur d’Arnaud Cathrine

a-la-place-du-coeur

Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend le déluge. Il ne sait qu’une chose : à la fin de l’année, il quittera sa ville natale pour rejoindre son frère aîné à Paris. Paris, la ville rêvée. Ce soir, Caumes a 17 ans et attend aussi le miracle qui, à son grand étonnement, survient : Esther – sujet de tous ses fantasmes – se décide enfin à lui adresser plus de trois mots, à le regarder droit dans les yeux et à laisser deviner un “plus si affinités”
Nous sommes le mardi 6 janvier 2015 et le monde de Caumes bascule : le premier amour s’annonce et la perspective obsédante de la “première fois”. Sauf que le lendemain, c’est la France qui bascule à son tour : deux terroristes forcent l’entrée du journal Charlie Hebdo et font onze victimes…
À la place du cœur, c’est ça : une semaine, jour après jour, et quasiment heure par heure, à vivre une passion sauvageonne et exaltante ; mais une semaine également rivée sur les écrans à tenter de mesurer l’horreur à l’œuvre, à tenter de ne pas confondre l’information en flux continu avec un thriller télé de plus. Comment l’amour (qui, par définition, postule que le monde peut bien s’écrouler) cohabite-t-il avec la mort en marche ?
Comment faire tenir ça dans un seul corps, dans une seule conscience ? Comment respirer à fond le parfum de la fille qu’on aime et comprendre, dans le même temps, que le monde qui nous attend est à terre ?

On Deck
Rebelle du désert d’Alwyn Hamilton

rebelle-du-desert

Après quelques malentendus, ils se retrouvent à fuir Dustwalk ensemble, traversant le désert, combattant contre des goules et autres monstres surnaturels : des chevaux qui se transforme en sable dès qu’ils sont capturés.

The people need Justice, but she’s not listening.

One hundred years before, the Great Sickness reduced the world to three dystopian cities. Now the community of Asphodel is trapped underground, waiting for the prophesied maiden of Justice to rescue them.

Sixteen-year-old Astrea is supposed to be this savior – too bad for them she isn’t a believer. Astrea fights her fate until discovering a power she never knew she had, and a handsome ally she never expected. With her life in danger, Astrea must choose between saving her city or herself.

This thrilling young adult adventure is the first in the richly-imagined Starbright series, which is laced with mystery, mythology, romance, and magic. Justice Buried will have you questioning fate versus free will along with Astrea’s strong female lead, and wondering who can be trusted when everyone is keeping secrets.
