HAPPY NEW YEAR

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 thing about love by Kim Karr

An emotional and unforgettable new romance from New York Times bestselling author Kim Karr.

The whole stethoscope-and-white coat thing isn’t my cup of tea.

I prefer a man with an artistic vein in his body. 9 – 5 hours. And I can definitely do without the half-lidded, sleepy bedroom eyes. (Okay, so those are kind of sexy.)

Tall, dark, and handsome doesn’t change the fact that he’s arrogant, cocky, and rude.
Not that I care, but he’s made it clear he wants nothing to do with a quirky girl like me, which is why he said no.

Turns out no isn’t an option.

I have a quickie wedding to plan, and Dr. Jake Kissinger doesn’t have a choice. He looks at our situation like he’s stuck with me, but in reality I’m stuck with him. Stuck with his pouty mouth. His long, lean body. And stuck with those loose, low riding scrub pants. (Okay, so the doctor thing is growing on me.)

When spending time together turns into more than it should, I know I’m in trouble.
He isn’t supposed to make my heart pound.
I’m not supposed to make him look twice.
And we aren’t supposed to spend the night together. (Okay, so he has more than one artistic vein in his body, and other places.)

Falling for him is definitely a mistake.

Here’s the thing…
Jake is unavailable, and I know it.
Just not in the way you might think.

I guess you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

Coeurs Itinérants 2 de Jane Harvey Berrick

Combien de fois peut-on jouer avec ses sentiments ? Quand l’amour nous a démoli, doit-on lui donner une seconde chance ? À quel moment l’optimisme devient-il de la stupidité ?

Et que se passe-t-il quand l’homme qu’on aime ne cesse jamais de bouger et de voyager ? Doit-on se dire au revoir ou abandonner tout ce pour quoi on a travaillé et tout ce qu’on a connu jusqu’à maintenant ? Une fête foraine peut-elle devenir son chez-soi ?

Oh. Vous pensiez que j’avais les réponses ? Non, désolée. Pas de réponses, juste un bon nombre de questions et un cœur qui aimerait prendre le dessus sur mon cerveau.

Une personne peut-elle devenir un foyer ?

Warcross by Marie Lu

For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn’t just a game—it’s a way of life. The obsession started ten years ago and its fan base now spans the globe, some eager to escape from reality and others hoping to make a profit. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. But the bounty hunting world is a competitive one, and survival has not been easy. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships—only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.

Convinced she’s going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when instead she gets a call from the game’s creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year’s tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. With no time to lose, Emika’s whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she’s only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire.

On Deck
Sous d’autres étoiles de Amy A. Bartol

De sa vie, Kricket n’a jamais prié sa bonne étoile, trop occupée qu’elle était à se cacher dans Chicago pour échapper au système de placement familial de la ville. À l’approche de son dix-huitième anniversaire, elle n’a qu’un seul désir : cesser de fuir et trouver enfin sa place dans le monde.

Ce jour finit par arriver lorsqu’elle rencontre Trey Allairis, un jeune soldat étharien qui a pour mission de venir chercher l’orpheline sur Terre et la ramener sur sa planète d’origine. Quand le danger se rapproche, Trey doit protéger Kricket jusqu’à ce qu’elle ait appris à manier les pouvoirs qu’elle ne pouvait utiliser sur Terre.

Kyon, qui revendique Kricket comme membre de son clan, connaît la puissance des dons surnaturels qu’elle possède, des dons qu’il compte bien utiliser à son avantage afin de s’imposer à la tête des factions qui cherchent à régner sur Éthar, et d’anéantir tous ses ennemis, à commencer par Trey Allairis lui-même. Kricket devra alors faire face au dilemme le plus déchirant de son existence : lutter pour sa survie ou se battre pour sauver son amour.

Cet ouvrage a remporté quatre récompenses aux utopYA 2014, dont le prix du meilleur livre et celui du meilleur livre de science-fiction de l’année.

Une mer d’étoiles de Amy A. Bartol

Embarquée malgré elle sur la planète Éthar, au fin fond de l’espace, Kricket se rend à présent compte que le don héréditaire qui lui permet de prédire l’avenir fait d’elle un atout très recherché… et le déclencheur d’une guerre sans merci entre les Alameeda et les Rafe, les clans rivaux auxquels appartenaient ses parents, deux amants maudits.

D’après la prophétie alameeda, l’une de ces Maisons est destinée à régner en Maître, tandis que l’autre sera complètement anéantie – et le don de prémonition de Kricket pourra faire pencher la balance.

Traquée à la fois par les Maisons Rafe et Alameeda, Kricket trouve refuge dans les bras de Trey, son garde du corps étharien. Mais les visions inquiétantes qu’elle a du futur la troublent profondément : son don lui permettra-t-il de réécrire l’avenir ou son destin est-il aussi immuable que les étoiles ?

Fallen Empire by K.N Lee

They say the Age of Dragons ended after the War on Magic, but hiding in the forgotten lands remains one clan.
While Kylan hunts firedrakes by day, he prepares for a journey across the Sea of Dreams where mermaids thrive and the key to his people’s survival is prophecized to be hidden.

Amalia, a Mage, escaped The Brotherhood, a sect of monks who seek the descendants of the gods once. Now, unable to return to neutral territory where magic-users are safe, she finds herself fighting for survival amongst men who can turn into wolves, firedrakes, and a relentless monk who believes she can restore balance to the entire world.

For Amalia, the gods are not just a memory. They are her ancestors, and before she can learn to control her newfound gift, she will face the keeper of a forgotten empire.

A dragon.

In this sprawling epic fantasy novel with shifting wolf hybrids, dragons, and mermaids, Amalia’s first battle is for more than her life. It’s for the souls of every being born with magic. Join New York Times bestselling author, K.N. Lee on an adventure perfect for fans of Vikings and Game of Thrones.

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.
