For Review
The City of Brass by S A Chakraborty

Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty—an imaginative alchemy of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and One Thousand and One Nights, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts

Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles.

But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to accept that the magical world she thought only existed in childhood stories is real. For the warrior tells her a new tale: across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire, and rivers where the mythical marid sleep; past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises, and mountains where the circling hawks are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass?a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound.

In that city, behind gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal. That magic cannot shield her from the dangerous web of court politics. That even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.

After all, there is a reason they say be careful what you wish for .

Wilder de Rebecca Yarros

Le marché semblait honnête : devenir la tutrice d’un étudiant en difficulté en échange d’une bourse qui permettrait à Leah de participer, tous frais payés, au prestigieux programme Study at Sea. Un an sur un paquebot sillonnant les océans. Une expérience académique de premier rang, mais aussi un défi, l’occasion rêvée de sortir de sa zone de confort.
Ce qu’elle n’avait pas prévu, c’est la personnalité de son élève. Paxton Wilder. Un regard d’acier, un corps parfait, recouvert de tatouages aussi intimidants qu’attirants, et un sulfureux parfum de danger. Leah sait qu’elle devrait garder ses distances, mais, chaque jour qui passe, le charme agit un peu plus…
Amour. Trahison. Adrénaline. Le plus addictif des cocktails.

PS I like you de Kasie West

Un jour d’ennui en cours de chimie, Lily griffonne les paroles de sa chanson préférée sur son bureau. Lorsqu’elle s’assoit à la même place le lendemain, elle découvre que quelqu’un a écrit la suite…
Très vite, Lily et son mystérieux interlocuteur se lancent dans une correspondance enfiévrée. La jeune fille n’a jamais autant eu envie d’aller en cours – mais surtout pour y savourer sa lettre du jour ! Derniers groupes de musique indé à découvrir, secrets de lycée ou confidences plus intimes… tout semble les rapprocher.
Peu à peu, Lily réalise que son coeur s’emballe pour celui qui se cache derrière cette plume. Mais alors que l’identité de son amour épistolaire se dévoile peu à peu, Lily va découvrir que certains cris du coeur devraient peut-être rester silencieux…
