Finished

We Free The Stars by Hafsah Faizal

The battle on Sharr is over. The dark forest has fallen. Altair may be captive, but Zafira, Nasir, and Kifah are bound for Sultan’s Keep, determined to finish the plan he set in motion: restoring the hearts of the Sisters of Old to the minarets of each caliphate, and finally returning magic to all of Arawiya. But they are low on resources and allies alike, and the kingdom teems with fear of the Lion of the Night’s return.

As the zumra plots to overthrow the kingdom’s darkest threat, Nasir fights to command the magic in his blood. He must learn to hone his power into a weapon, to wield not only against the Lion but against his father, trapped under the Lion’s control. Zafira battles a very different darkness festering in her through her bond with the Jawarat—a darkness that hums with voices, pushing her to the brink of her sanity and to the edge of a chaos she dare not unleash. In spite of the darkness enclosing ever faster, Nasir and Zafira find themselves falling into a love they can’t stand to lose…but time is running out to achieve their ends, and if order is to be restored, drastic sacrifices will have to be made.

Lush and striking, hopeful and devastating, We Free the Stars is the masterful conclusion to the Sands of Arawiya duology by New York Times–bestselling author Hafsah Faizal.

I love you to the moon de Alfreda Enwy

I love you to the moon

S’aimer leur est interdit. Mais il n’y a rien de plus excitant que d’enfreindre les règles…

Une nuit. Comment sa vie a-t-elle pu voler en éclats après une simple nuit ? Lorsque Billie a croisé le regard ténébreux de Moon dans ce club, elle a immédiatement compris qu’il lui serait difficile d’y résister. Et puis, c’était son premier jour à Séoul et le début de sa nouvelle vie ; pourquoi se serait-elle méfiée ? Mais ce matin la réalité la rattrape. Car Moon est bien plus qu’une simple célébrité : c’est le leader d’Alter, le groupe de K-pop le plus en vogue ; et désormais elle a autant d’ennemies qu’il a de fans. Alors, pour sa propre sécurité, elle va devoir rester à l’écart du chanteur. Même si elle ne peut s’empêcher de repenser à la nuit magique et enivrante qu’ils ont partagée. Même si Moon est bien décidé à la voir en secret…

Not made for love de Alfreda Enwy

B - Not made for Love

Elle n’est pas prête à aimer, mais il est là pour lui apprendre.

L’amour, Avery y a renoncé. Elle ne peut donner à un homme ce qu’il désire, elle le sait. Alors quand Wade, le canon que la fac lui assigne comme tuteur, se dit prêt à tout pour la séduire, elle le prévient aussitôt qu’il perd son temps. Personne, pas même ce séduisant étudiant en art, ne peut changer celle qu’elle est devenue. Pourtant, avec son regard bleu océan qui rend dingues toutes les autres filles, il est loin de la laisser indifférente. Et, quand il propose de lui donner des cours particuliers à l’approche des partiels, elle sent combien il lui sera difficile de s’en tenir à sa résolution. Ça tombe mal : Wade ne reculera devant rien pour la faire craquer…

Jeu de Patience de Jennifer L Armentrout

C - Jeu de patience

Étudier dans une université située à des milliers de kilomètres de chez elle est le seul moyen pour Avery Morgansten d’oublier ce qui est arrivé à cette fête d’Halloween, cinq ans plus tôt – un évènement qui a changé sa vie à jamais. Tout ce qu’elle doit faire est se rendre à l’heure en cours, s’assurer que le bracelet à son poignet gauche reste toujours en place, ne pas attirer l’attention sur elle, et peut-être… se faire quelques amis. La seule chose dont elle n’avait pas besoin et n’aurait jamais imaginé était d’attirer le regard d’un homme pouvant briser le futur précaire auquel elle s’était préparé.

Cameron Hamilton fait un bon 1m90, a de surprenants yeux bleus et possède la faculté de la faire désirer des choses qu’elle croyait ne plus jamais pouvoir avoir. Elle sait qu’elle doit rester loin de lui, mais Cam est partout, avec son charme, son flirt et cette satanée fossette qui est tellement… attirante. Se rapprocher de lui est dangereux, mais quand ignorer la tension qui existe entre eux devient impossible, il fait alors surgir en elle quelque chose dont elle ignorait l’existence.

Quand Avery commence à recevoir des emails et coups de fil de menaces, elle est forcée de faire face à son passé, et n’a d’autre choix que de reconnaître que quelqu’un refuse de la laisser oublier cette nuit qui a tout changé. Quand la terrible vérité sortira au grand jour, réussira-t-elle à se relever ? Cam sera-t-il là pour l’aider ou bien l’entraînera-t-elle au fond du gouffre?

Rule de Jay Crownover

D- Rule

Lorsqu’elle était adolescente, les parents de Shaw Landon, richissismes, se sont peu occupés d’elle. Elle a alors trouvé refuge dans la famille Archer où elle était particulièrement proche de Remy, frère jumeau de Rule, aujourd’hui décédé dans un accident de voiture. Depuis elle est liée à cette famille, plus qu’à la sienne. Mais Shaw est depuis toujours secrètement amoureuse de Rule qui voit en elle une fille à papa, trop sérieuse et surtout la petite amie de son défunt frère. Qui plus est, tout les oppose : de nature rebelle et fêtard, il est tatoueur et tatoué, a des percings et les cheveux de toutes les couleurs. Avec son look classique, elle est sage et concentrée sur ses études de médecine. Mais parfois il suffit d’une jupe courte et de quelques cocktails pour que le regard que l’on porte sur quelqu’un change… Rule et Shaw tenteront de comprendre ce qu’ils ressentent mutuellement mais entre les traumatismes de leurs familles respectives, les habitudes de coureur de jupons de Rule et l’ex de Shaw qui la harcèle, ces deux-là auront bien du mal à se trouver. Leur amour sera-t-il plus fort que leurs différences ?

Goldilocks by Jay crownover

E - Goldilocks

For Olivia Adams, the world has always been too big or too small.

Forced to live her life caught between what she wanted for herself and the unfair choices and crazy obsession of those around her for as long as she could remember, Ollie has always felt confined and trapped. It was hard for her to imagine a future beyond the crushing control of those who wanted to make sure she paid the price for her role in a tragic accident that ruined several young lives. However, having no hope and living in a constant state of fear never stopped Ollie from dreaming of different ways to break free and how to reunite with the one person who always made her feel safe. Huck is the only one who ever made her feel like there was a place in his world, right by his side, that would fit her just right.

The world has always forced Huck Snyder to be a guy who runs either too hot or too cold.

Unwanted and barely tolerated, his temper burned hot and bright, often leading him into trouble. After the accident, he was tossed out, disowned, and forced to fend for himself. Struggling to survive, Huck quickly realized the only way he would make it was to freeze out every single memory and moment from his past. Especially those surrounding Ollie. He allowed his heart to harden into a block of ice and refused to let anyone close enough to melt it. Years have passed, and Huck has adjusted to the constant cold that permeates through his new life. He was in no way prepared for the only girl who could ever control his inner fire to show back up. Ollie is on the run and doesn’t seem to mind the chilly reception she receives when she shows up unannounced on Huck’s doorstep.

Fire and ice no longer define Huck because when he’s with Ollie, it’s easy to remember that the temperature between the two of them has always been just right.

On Deck

Victories Greater Than Death by Charlie Jane Anders

A thrilling adventure set against an intergalactic war with international bestselling author Charlie Jane Anders at the helm in her YA debut—think Star Wars meets Doctor Who, and buckle your seatbelts.

Tina has always known her destiny is outside the norm—after all, she is the human clone of the most brilliant alien commander in all the galaxies (even if the rest of the world is still deciding whether aliens exist). But she is tired of waiting for her life to begin.

And then it does—and maybe Tina should have been more prepared. At least she has a crew around her that she can trust—and her best friend at her side. Now, they just have to save the world.

From internationally bestselling author Charlie Jane Anders (All the Birds in the Sky) comes a thrilling adventure set against an intergalactic war—Anders’s long-awaited YA debut.

Chase the Dark by Annette Marie

Piper Griffiths wants one thing in life: To become a Consul, a keeper of the peace between humans and daemons. There are three obstacles in her way.

The first is Lyre. Incubus. Hotter than hell and with a wicked streak to match. His greatest mission in life is to annoy the crap out of her, but he isn’t as harmless as he seems. The second is Ash. Draconian. Powerful. Dangerous. He knows too much and reveals nothing. Also, disturbingly attractive — and scary. Did she mention scary?

The third is the Sahar Stone. Top secret magical weapon of mass destruction. Previously hidden in her Consulate until thieves broke in, went on a murder spree, and disappeared with the weapon.

And they left Piper to take the fall for their crimes.

Now she’s on the run, her dreams of becoming a Consul shattered and every daemon in the city gunning to kill her. She’s dead on her own, but there’s no one she can trust — no one except two entirely untrustworthy daemons … See problems one and two.

This is my America by Kim Johnson

Dear Martin meets Just Mercy in this unflinching yet uplifting YA novel that explores the racist injustices in the American justice system.

Every week, seventeen-year-old Tracy Beaumont writes letters to Innocence X, asking the organization to help her father, an innocent Black man on death row. After seven years, Tracy is running out of time—her dad has only 267 days left. Then the unthinkable happens. The police arrive in the night, and Tracy’s older brother, Jamal, goes from being a bright, promising track star to a “thug” on the run, accused of killing a white girl. Determined to save her brother, Tracy investigates what really happened between Jamal and Angela down at the Pike. But will Tracy and her family survive the uncovering of the skeletons of their Texas town’s racist history that still haunt the present?

Fans of Nic Stone and Jason Reynolds won’t want to miss this provocative and gripping debut.
