Sightwitch by Susan Dennard

Set a year before TruthwitchSightwitch follows Ryber Fortiza, the last Sightwitch Sister as she treks deep underground to rescue her missing best friend. While there, she encounters a young Nubrevnan named Kullen Ikray, who has no memory of who he is or how he wound up inside the mountain. As the two journey ever deeper in search of answers, and as they brave one close call after another, a tentative friendship forms between them—one that might one day grow into something more.

Sightwitch is told through Ryber’s journal entries and her sketches, as well as through supplementary materials (such as other journals, pieces of songs, clippings from history books, flashbacks, etc.). Though meant as a companion novella, this story serves as a set up to Bloodwitch as well as an expansion of the world.

Thank you Susan Dennard for this book.

For review
Royal baby Maker by Nora Flite

The day I met Bishop Callehurst he was standing half-naked in the massive kitchen of his over the top Hollywood mansion, drinking a glass of water and letting it drip all over his impossibly solid body.
I didn’t know he was royalty. I was too distracted by his hungry stare… and how he kept smirking every time he stole a peek down my shirt.
Turns out this prince needs a baby, and fast.
He swears it’s about keeping access to his money. Love or romance? They don’t factor in.
But if that’s true, why doesn’t he pick one of the hundreds of gorgeous women his mom parades in front of him to be his baby-mamma? Why me? I’m not special—I can barely walk his two Pomeranians without falling over.
His royal sexiness has plans for me. Dirty, wild plans that can only happen between the sheets. There’s a million reasons not to go along with what he wants, but with him kissing my thighs and holding me close…
I’ve forgotten all of them.

Tout en haut de ma liste de Emily Blaine

Six destinées, trois rencontres, des kilos de neige et des montagnes d’amour : découvrez le nouveau roman choral d’Emily Blaine !

Jefferson est paumé. Depuis qu’il a arrêté ses études, il ne sait pas ce qu’il veut faire de sa vie. Au point d’accepter de participer à cette étude sociologique bizarre que lui propose sa sœur. Mais, quand il rencontre Alana, le deuxième cobaye, il comprend qu’il ne sera plus jamais perdu.
Olivia est coincée. Pour attirer l’attention de celui qu’elle aime depuis le lycée, elle s’est enterrée sous les mensonges. Désormais, elle doit présenter à ses parents son petit ami imaginaire, Callum. Callum existe… sauf que Callum est juste un ami. Un ami sympa au point de jouer le rôle d’un fiancé ?
Mason étouffe. Malgré sa célébrité, il se sent plus seul que jamais et ne sait plus qui il est vraiment. Alors, quand il découvre une petite annonce qui propose de retaper un vieux chalet en échange du gîte et du couvert, il fonce. Son hôtesse Stella aura bien le temps de se rendre compte qu’il a légèrement surestimé ses compétences en bricolage…

Le sang de la guerrière de Florence Cochet

De son passé, Shandra ne se rappelle que les nombreuses années à l’Académie, entre sa formation de maître et sa dévotion à la déesse Ashara. Bientôt, elle affrontera l’épreuve qui lui permettra d’intégrer les rangs des « ombres du palais », comme on nomme les guerriers au service des souverains. Cette épreuve, c’est son nouveau maître d’armes, l’énigmatique et troublant Kalhen, qui l’y prépare.

Alors que leur attirance réciproque se transforme en désir, Shandra est loin de s’imaginer le double jeu auquel il se livre, et encore moins que leurs destins sont intimement liés…

Entre les tensions qui règnent parmi ses compagnons d’armes, la soif d’un sabre buveur d’âmes et les exigences d’un ancien dragon, Shandra parviendra-t-elle à trouver sa voie ?

Paperback
Fragile by Diana Nixon

She was off the limits for many reasons: too young, too naïve, and too beautiful to resist. But most of all – because she was my best friend’s little sister. She was like a taboo that should have never been broken.
But we crossed the line together… We gave in to the temptation and made a mistake that changed us forever.
Years passed, but for some unknown reason, the memories of her never stopped haunting my dreams.
I was even more obsessed with her than I was years ago, while she hated me to the bone. And she had a very good reason to feel that way…
“I owe you a lifetime of us, and I will not let you down, not again…”

 

Undone by Wendy Higgins

USA Today and New York Times bestselling author, Wendy Higgins, brings you the gripping, sensual conclusion to her apocalyptic trilogy.

Amber Tate never dreamed their heart-wrenching escape from the enemy’s attack would lead them to the most beautiful place she’s ever seen, marred by one ugly fact; it’s under enemy control. Like everywhere else in the world, Elmendorf military base in Alaska has been captured, and it’s time to take it back—all of it—one base, one city at a time. After losing so much, Amber clings to the only precious person she has left, and vows to sacrifice everything to help save the Earth.

Remy Haines is a lover, not a fighter, so when she finds herself in enemy territory, expected to feign allegiance while gathering intel for the rebel cause, she’s never been more out of her element. Tensions only increase when her feelings for Jacob “Tater” Tate won’t go away, and the enemy’s leader takes an interest in her. She’s torn between what her heart wants, and what she knows she should do. As for what her body needs…well, it’s always had a mind of its own.

Daughter of the pirate king by Tricia Levenseller

There will be plenty of time for me to beat him soundly once I’ve gotten what I came for.

Sent on a mission to retrieve an ancient hidden map—the key to a legendary treasure trove—seventeen-year-old pirate captain Alosa deliberately allows herself to be captured by her enemies, giving her the perfect opportunity to search their ship.

More than a match for the ruthless pirate crew, Alosa has only one thing standing between her and the map: her captor, the unexpectedly clever and unfairly attractive first mate, Riden. But not to worry, for Alosa has a few tricks up her sleeve, and no lone pirate can stop the Daughter of the Pirate King.

Weird things customers say in bookshops by Jen Campbell

This Sunday Times bestseller is a miscellany of hilarious and peculiar bookshop moments: ‘Can books conduct electricity?’
‘My children are just climbing your bookshelves: that’s ok… isn’t it?’

A John Cleese Twitter question [‘What is your pet peeve?’], first sparked the ‘Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops’ blog, which grew over three years into one bookseller’s collection of ridiculous conversations on the shop floor.

From ‘Did Beatrix Potter ever write a book about dinosaurs?’ to the hunt for a paperback which could forecast the next year’s weather; and from ‘I’ve forgotten my glasses, please read me the first chapter’ to ‘Excuse me… is this book edible?: here is a book for heroic booksellers and booklovers everywhere.

This full-length collection illustrated by the Brothers McLeod also includes top ‘Weird Things’ from bookshops around the world.

Thanks Anouk for this package.
