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
Clean de Juno Dawson

« Visage écrasé contre le cuir. Odeur de voiture neuve.
Je ne peux pas bouger. J’ai été kidnappée. Je ne peux pas bouger.
J’ouvre les yeux. Ça fait mal. Mais j’aperçois mon frère, Nikolai.
— Nik ?
— Tout va bien, Lexi, je vais te trouver de l’aide.
Oh, putain, cette fois, il l’a fait. Il a décidé de me sauver. »

Voilà comment je me suis retrouvée coincée au Clarity Centre, un hôtel de luxe pour les accros en tout genre. Pour moi, c’est un peu Alcatraz avec un spa. Chacun son poison. Pour Ruby, c’est la bouffe. Pour Kendall, c’est l’excès inverse. Pour Saif, c’est la drogue (aucune originalité), comme moi. Et Brady… Brady, le beau gosse de service, c’est un grand mystère.
Bref, on forme une belle bande de déglingués. Et la nouvelle venue, Sasha, semble encore plus tarée que les autres. La grande question : sommes-nous prêts à être clean ?

Model Boyfriend by Stuart Reardon & Jane Harvey Berrick

A powerful contemporary romance set in the fast-moving world of international modelling.

“What’s it like dating one of the most beautiful men in the world? A man whose face is on every magazine and ad campaign?

Not as much fun as it sounds, as Anna Scott is about to find out.

Retired from rugby at the age of 33, injured and bored, Nick is given the chance to enter the high stakes world of fashion photography as a model.

But behind the glittering façade lies an ugly reality: drugs, alcohol, all the deadly sins, and people willing to sleep their way to the top.

It’s a tough life and tougher on relationships.

Nick needs to learn to navigate the treacherous path quickly or risk losing it all—including the woman who has become his reason for living.

In this glamorous world, there is no room for error. Being a MODEL BOYFRIEND has never been harder.

Can nice guy Nick find his way through, or will he be tempted to risk it all? Because the one thing he despises is failure.

He’s a lot more than a pretty face.”

This story continues where UNDEFEATED left off, although it can also be read as a stand-alone story in its own right.

Superhero High by T.H Hernandez

Sixteen-year-old Annarenee Stevens is the sole member of her family without a super power. The only time she feels powerful is in the pool. With her sights set on swimming for U.C. Berkeley, she’s ready to win it all at the State championship and secure her future.

When the government unexpectedly ends the secret Genetically Enhanced Asset (GEA) program, Annarenee is uprooted from Dayton, the only home she’s ever known, and relocated to San Diego with all of the other GEA families. Queen of her public school, Annarenee is just another zero at Superhero High, a school without any sports teams.

With the end of the program, her hero older brother now needs a college education, too, meaning the only way Annarenee is getting into Berkeley is on a scholarship. Her dream is slipping through her fingers, no matter how tightly she clings to it. To make matters worse, super hot superhero, Ren Gonzalez, is paying too much attention to her. The kind of attention that has Ren’s ex-girlfriend intent on making Annarenee’s life even more miserable.

But when heroes begin disappearing, zeros and heroes will be forced to team up in order to solve the mystery. If they don’t kill each other first.

Myst & Whispers by C.M Lucas

Imagine a world in eternal darkness. A world where skeletal beasts lurk in the forest. Where the women are missing, and the men are in need of salvation…

In the West-English town of Little Wolf Green, Scott’s bookshop is about to close down. Convinced the bookshop holds the key to her mother’s identity, sixteen year old Anya Piddling vows to save Scott’s, whatever the cost.
When four books of magic and myth take the world by storm, Anya begins a journey to discover the truth about the author, known only as the Weaver. Followed closely by her friends, and one surly, bitter ex-boyfriend, Anya soon realises a whole new world awaits: a world gone very wrong, with maddening whispers in the forest, magical winged Kings and a dragon-boy that understands her, inside and out. But this world needs a saviour… and everyone is looking at her.

On Deck
Six de Coeur de L.H Cosway

Approchez et faites la connaissance de Jay Fields, illusionniste, mentaliste et manipulateur.
Je réfléchis en trois dimensions quand vous pensez en lignes droites.
Je vous montre une table et vous croyez voir une chaise.
Fumée, miroirs, tours de passe-passe… Je détourne votre attention. Je fais mes tours et vous abuse.
Mais surtout, je vous en mets plein les yeux.
On pense que j’ai tué un homme mais je n’ai rien fait.
Cela fait partie de mon plan.
La vengeance. Voilà ce que je désire. Pour moi, et pour elle.
Pour nous six.
Elle ne se souvient pas de moi, mais pourtant, elle est la clé de tout. Ma récompense au bout du chemin – enfin… si je parviens à me retenir de l’approcher.
Allez, choisissez une carte. Entrez et assistez au spectacle. Regardez mes mains, scrutez-les avec attention et oubliez ce qui se passe à côté… pendant que je détruis votre univers depuis la scène, juste ici, sous les projecteurs.

Wild hunger by Chloe Neill

In the first thrilling installment of Chloe Neill’s spinoff to the New York Times bestselling Chicagoland Vampires series, a new vampire will find out just how deep blood ties run.

As the only vampire child ever born, some believed Elisa Sullivan had all the luck. But the magic that helped bring her into the world left her with a dark secret. Shifter Connor Keene, the only son of North American Central Pack Apex Gabriel Keene, is the only one she trusts with it. But she’s a vampire and the daughter of a Master and a Sentinel, and he’s prince of the Pack and its future king.

When the assassination of a diplomat brings old feuds to the fore again, Elisa and Connor must choose between love and family, between honor and obligation, before Chicago disappears forever.
