What's up everyone ?
I was supposed to review three novels in september but I couldn't find time and I'm so late ! Between writing and college and work... Well, maybe I should have not read again my favorites books by Amy Plum. (oups !)
Anyway, I still have to share my thoughts about The Locket by Stacey Jay and Dash and Lily's book of dares by David Levithan. I really loved these two books. (coming soon !)
But next month I will review three books I can't wait to read :
1) The Space in Between by the very talented Jen Minkman.
The author gave me the book for an honest review and I wish I had time to read it sooner. I already talk to you about Jen Minkman and her dystopian trilogy. I was lucky to ask her questions and you can read our interview on my blog too.
"When Moira helps out her sister and brother in a Wiccan ritual on Halloween, the last thing she expects is to be swept away to a mystical wilderness. Sitting within the stones of the ancient circle of Penmaenmawr, Wales, she's convinced it's an illusion. But the dark-haired, handsome man with amnesia that Moira meets during her trance cannot be blinked away like a dream.
Hayko, the mysterious stranger, won’t let go. After returning home from her stone circle adventure, Moira is beckoned back night after night to the outlandish dreamland by an invisible force. But the hardest part isn't having to fight the terrifying creatures of these nightmares--it's realizing she’s falling for a guy without a past who isn’t real.
What if you really can fall in love with the man of your dreams?"
2) Rooms by Lauren Oliver
Because I love Lauren Oliver, I'm so excited to discover her new book. It's not YA so I can't wait to find out if it's as good as her other novels. But I'm not worried, I'm sure I will love it. Plus, I love ghost stories so it's perfect !
"Wealthy Richard Walker has just died, leaving behind his country house full of rooms packed with the detritus of a lifetime. His estranged family—bitter ex-wife Caroline, troubled teenage son Trenton, and unforgiving daughter Minna—have arrived for their inheritance.
But the Walkers are not alone. Prim Alice and the cynical Sandra, long dead former residents bound to the house, linger within its claustrophobic walls. Jostling for space, memory, and supremacy, they observe the family, trading barbs and reminiscences about their past lives. Though their voices cannot be heard, Alice and Sandra speak through the house itself—in the hiss of the radiator, a creak in the stairs, the dimming of light bulb.
The living and dead are each haunted by painful truths that will soon surface with explosive force. When a new ghost appears, and Trenton begins to communicate with her, the spirit and human worlds collide—with cataclysmic results."
3) Boy's out ! by Rawia Arroum
This novel is the first baby of a French writer who, like I did, particpated to a writing contest. She got to be published by one of my favorites books collection. (Black Moon, Hachette, which I think is like HarperTeen here in France ) As a budding writer, I can only imagine how important reviews are for her. I really hope she will have a successful career. Her first book sounds great and I voted for her ! Unfortunatly, I can't give you the synospis but if you read French like I read English, please check her book.
