Pour Recommencer à vivre de Devney Perry

Mariée à son amour de jeunesse, Poppy coulait des jours heureux avec l’époux de ses rêves. Mais leur vie a basculé. Poppy n’est plus mariée. Maintenant, ses amis célibataires ne la regardent plus avec envie. Maintenant, il y a de la pitié dans leurs yeux lorsqu’ils murmurent ce mot terrible derrière son dos… Veuve.

Des années après la mort tragique de son mari, des années de douleur et de chagrin à pleurer l’existence qu’elle a perdue, Poppy décide de réaliser la liste d’anniversaire de Jamie. Elle veut concrétiser ses désirs les plus chers. Et peut-être, peut-être que si elle parvient à remplir cette liste, elle pourra enfin reprendre le cours de sa vie. Poppy sait que remplir les objectifs de la liste sera difficile. Elle s’attend à souffrir à chaque étape. Mais ce qu’elle n’attendait pas, c’est de trouver Cole sur son chemin.

Est-ce que ce même homme qui lui a annoncé la mort de son mari, des années plus tôt, et lui a brisé le cœur, pourrait aussi l’aider à se reconstruire aujourd’hui ?

Paperback
We hunt The Flame by Hafsah Faizal

People lived because she killed.
People died because he lived.

Zafira is the Hunter, disguising herself as a man when she braves the cursed forest of the Arz to feed her people. Nasir is the Prince of Death, assassinating those foolish enough to defy his autocratic father, the king. If Zafira was exposed as a girl, all of her achievements would be rejected; if Nasir displayed his compassion, his father would punish him in the most brutal of ways.

Both are legends in the kingdom of Arawiya—but neither wants to be.

War is brewing, and the Arz sweeps closer with each passing day, engulfing the land in shadow. When Zafira embarks on a quest to uncover a lost artifact that can restore magic to her suffering world and stop the Arz, Nasir is sent by the king on a similar mission: retrieve the artifact and kill the Hunter. But an ancient evil stirs as their journey unfolds—and the prize they seek may pose a threat greater than either can imagine.

Set in a richly detailed world inspired by ancient Arabia, We Hunt the Flame is a gripping debut of discovery, conquering fear, and taking identity into your own hands.

The darkest part of the forest by Holly black

Children can have a cruel, absolute sense of justice. Children can kill a monster and feel quite proud of themselves. A girl can look at her brother and believe they’re destined to be a knight and a bard who battle evil. She can believe she’s found the thing she’s been made for.

Hazel lives with her brother, Ben, in the strange town of Fairfold where humans and fae exist side by side. The faeries’ seemingly harmless magic attracts tourists, but Hazel knows how dangerous they can be, and she knows how to stop them. Or she did, once.

At the center of it all, there is a glass coffin in the woods. It rests right on the ground and in it sleeps a boy with horns on his head and ears as pointed as knives. Hazel and Ben were both in love with him as children. The boy has slept there for generations, never waking.

Until one day, he does…

As the world turns upside down, Hazel tries to remember her years pretending to be a knight. But swept up in new love, shifting loyalties, and the fresh sting of betrayal, will it be enough?

Prom-Wrecked by T.H Hernandez & Jennifer DiGiovanni

Their prom night ended in a jail cell with forty of their closest friends. But that’s hardly the worst thing that happened to them…

When the principal announces prom is canceled this year, senior Riley Hart is determined to save it. Armed with little more than her own enthusiasm, she ends up working closely with Owen Locklear, who is more than completely off-limits. Because he’s the boyfriend of her ex-BFF, Catherine Reed. Still, Owen knows Riley better than almost anyone, and his charming ideas for turning the prom upside-down and backward win Riley over.

Then they lose their deposit. Twice. And book a band full of octogenarians. And don’t even get her started on the act of God that takes down their venue…

Riley will have an unforgettable teenage experience, damn it, if it’s the last thing she does…

Michel Lafon
The Vanishing Girl Tome 2 de Laura Thalassa

Entraînée au métier d’espionne par le gouvernement américain qui utilise sa faculté à se téléporter pour mener des missions à haut risque, Ember Pierce se réveille dans un hôpital de Los Angeles. Elle ne se souvient que de l’essentiel : elle a été piégée et sa dernière mission aurait dû lui coûter la vie.

Utilisant ses facultés de téléportation, elle réapparaît dans la chambre de Caden Hawthorne qui a passé ces dix derniers mois à la croire morte. La jeune femme fantomatique qu’il voit ne ressemble plus à celle de ses souvenirs : ses cheveux sont plus longs, sa peau est plus pâle et son regard est hanté. Lorsqu’Ember lui révèle qu’une personne de confiance l’a trahie, une seule échappatoire s’offre désormais à eux. Sans savoir qui est leur ami et qui est leur ennemi, Ember et Caden se lancent dans la mission la plus périlleuse de leur vie : rester ensemble et survivre.
