[Chronique] Ma résilience – Alice Gros

Ce service presse m’a été proposé en échange d’une chronique honnête. Je remercie Elizabeth, pour la proposition et l’envoi du roman.

Ma Résilience” est un roman auto-biographique écrit par Alice Gros et auto-édité avec Librinova. L’auteure a été diagnostiquée d’une leucémie très jeune et nous raconte tout au long du roman son histoire, son combat, puis le cancer de sa grand-mère. Alice Gros nous ouvre les portes de ses souvenirs, sans aucun tabou nous découvrons tous les souvenirs bons comme mauvais de la jeune femme.

C’est un roman poignant et bouleversant qui m’a beaucoup marqué. Il y’a quelques mois de ça, cette lecture m’aurai touché mais je ne l’aurai pas vécu, ni ressenti comme je l’ai ressentit en ce-moment.

J’ai lu “Ma résilience” dans un endroit très particulier, car je l’ai lu dans une salle d’attente. J’attendais ma mamie qui devait faire un TEP Scan. Récemment elle a été diagnostiquée avec un cancer du sein. Une bombe, qui nous a explosé aux visages. Personne ne s’y attendait, car il n’y avait pas de cancer dans ma famille. Tout comme l’auteure, je suis donc accompagnatrice. La seule différence avec Alice Gros, c’est que j’ai la chance de ne pas l’avoir vécu moi-même.

Dans son récit poignant, l’auteure nous montre les différents aspects de la maladie. Tout ce qu’elle a vécu (ou pas) à cause de la maladie. Du moment où elle a été diagnostiqué jusqu’à sa guérison. On y découvre son vécu ainsi que la maladie vécue par les membres de sa famille et certains de ses amis, qui sont restés à ses côtés.

Malgré le sujet difficile de ce roman, l’auteure nous livre un témoignage pleins d’espoir et de positivité.

[Blog Tour] She Ran Away From Love – Mawson

It’s my second blog tour and I am so excited as I loved it the first time. I would like to welcome the author/publisher for sending me this book in exchange for a honest review.


You can find the owner of the bears on this website. The bears and their owners live in Australia.

Frilly is scared but she wants to discover the great Out There. She is supported by her friend Mawson through her journey to self-discovery.

It’s a really cute story that anyone can read. It doesn’t matter if you are an adult or a child, it’s beautiful and teach you a beautiful lesson. Live your life at its fullest. Just go for it. Love your life, love yourself. Just be who you are and who you want to be.

I was really touched, and my heart was full of love while reading this really serious but also cute and poetic short story. Also the photos are really beautiful and adds up to the truth that tells the narrator.

From the cover you might think it is a children book but I swear it is not just a children book. It is for everyone. Just read it and you’ll realize that you need to read it just as much as a child. We’re never too old to be tell to love ourselves and live our life the way we want to.

[Quick Reviews] "What If It's Us" – Adam Silvera, Becky Albertalli and "Love & Gelato" – Jenna Evans Welch

I decided to start a ‘Quick Reviews’ section to post some of my really short reviews. Also I wanted to share with you some of my reviews from my first blog – so I’ll post them under this section.

What If It’s Us” is a book written by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli. They are both authors of many other books such as “History is All You Left Me” for A. Silvera and “Simon VS The Homosapiens Agenda” for B. Albertalli.

Arthur is in New York on holidays when he meets Ben at the post office. He knows the Universe holds something into this meeting but the two boys forgot to exchange their phone numbers.. How are they going to find each other again ?

We discover New York through Arthur’s eyes. When he meets Ben we found out that the latter just broke up with Hudson. Before meeting up again the two boys are trying everything to discover the identity of the other. When they finally meet again the build a really strong friendship very quickly. We then discover their families which are totally different. We also meet Dylan – Ben’s best friend- who is as endearing as the two main characters.

I have not enough words to describe how much I loved this novel. Just read it! The characters are so sweet and endearing that it’s just not possible to not love them and the story is absolutely beautiful.

What I love the most in this novel (a part from the characters and the story obviously) is the fact that it’s written by two authors but you can actually tell it’s them through the way the wrote it, the way the characters speaks and acts and that we also find some scenes and characters from their own books in this novel. There are many plots twist.

And this end …. definitely written by Adam Silvera and Becky Albertalli’s book. Damn.

Once again the two authors gave us an amazing novel. You won’t want to stop reading it.

Lina is seventeen when her mum passes. She moves to Italy to meet with her biological dad. Why did her mum never told her about him ? Barely arrived, she already wants to go back to USA. Then she meets Ren, a boy her age, who’s showing her around. She finally decides to read the diary her mum left her with all the secrets she was keeping.

I was fascinated by this book. It felt like I was travelling around some Italian’ cities with Lina. The plot is perfeclty led and the revelations are made all through the read.

Lina is a really interesting character, she’s a very smart girl who love going on adventures and who is ready to do anything to understand why her mum left her this diary instead of telling her all her secrets when she was still alive. Ren is also a very interesting and endearing character. He’s doing everything he can to help Lina during her journey in Florence.

I definitely loved and would recommend this book. I did not want it to end. Since I’ve read this book I’m even more obsessed by Italy.


Have you read any of this book or heard of them ?

[Book Tag] 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS.


When I was an Au Pair in Wales I was looking after two children (a boy and a girl) and for Christmas the little Girl had to rehearse for a Christmas Show she was taking part in, at school. For weeks all I’ve heard every day (for houuuurs) was Christmas songs. To be honest with you I did not know many Christmas songs in English before the show so I discovered the “Twelve Days of Christmas” song thanks to Molly. Anyway! I was looking for a bookish tag and when I saw the name for this one I thought “This is for me !!!” So let’s do it!

I found it on PaperFury‘s blog and it was originally created by LizzyLovesBooks on Booktube.


ON THE FIRST DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR TREE.

The partridge stood alone in the pear tree. What is your favourite stand alone?

I can’t choose one.. so my favorite stand alone are “They Both Die at The End” by Adam Silvera and “When We Collided” by Emery Lord. I love those two books so much, I can’t even explain. For those who knows me, they won’t be surprise to see Adam Silver mentioned here.

ON THE SECOND DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TWO TURTLE DOVES.

Love is in the air! Who is your one true pairing?

Of course I’m going to choose Rufus and Mateo from “They Both Die at The End” by Adam Silvera but there’s also Noah and Nick from the series “Culpables” by Mercedes Ron.

ON THE THIRD DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: THREE FRENCH HENS.

In the spirit of threes, what is the best trilogy you have read?

The best trilogy I read is “The Illuminae Files” by Jay Kristoff & Amie Kauffman. It was so hard to choose just one trilogy but those books are absolutely perfect and beautiful.

ON THE FOURTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FOUR CALLING BIRDS.

Since series usually consist of four or more books, what is your favourite series?

Definitely the series “A Contre Sens” originally called “Culpables” by Mercedes Ron! I’m waiting for book 5 to come out in few weeks! Omg!!

ON THE FIFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: FIVE GOLDEN RINGS.

One ring to rule them all! Who is your Favourite Villain/Antagonist?

The Caliph of Khorasan in “The Wrath and The Dawn” but .. is he really a Villain ?

ON THE SIXTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SIX GEESE A LAYING.

Creation is a beautiful thing. What is your favourite world/world-building?

Definitely the world in “The Illuminae Files” (trilogy). Also “Otherworld” written by Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller. Those authors are so creative!

ON THE SEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: SEVEN SWANS A SWIMMING.

Who needs seven swans when all it takes is one good animal sidekick? Who’s your favourite animal sidekick?

Peter Rabbit ? No joke! I am absolutely in love with Peter Rabbit. I have no idea why………

Also obviously .. a fox … “The Fox and The Hound“. Foxes are my all time faves!

ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS, MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: EIGHT MAIDS A MILKING.

Milk is so 18th century. Which book or series takes beverages/food to a whole new level?

I have no idea …. Tell me in the comments what would be your answers!

Maybe “Harry Potter” with all the buffets, the butter beers, etc …

ON THE NINTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: NINE LADIES DANCING.

Dancing is just one skill of a Lady! Who is your favourite kickass female lead?

Shahrzad in “The Wrath and The Dawn” written by Renée Ahdieh (Duology). She’s absolutely fantastic and so strong.

ON THE TENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: TEN LORDS A LEAPING.

How about your favourite leading lad?

Miles in “Looking For Alaska” ! It was very hard to choose because I also love Jonah in “When We Collided” but I was trying to look for new book titles!

ON THE ELEVENTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: ELEVEN PIPES PIPING.

What is your favourite book or bookish thing with musical influence? (It can be about music, reference music a lot etc.)

It’s a series written by a French self-published author: “The Fallen Angels” written by Priincess Ramera Cassi. She writes about her own story through different characters. Each books are about two characters. The Fallen are a band and in each books there is a playlist.

ON THE TWELFTH DAY OF CHRISTMAS MY TRUE LOVE SENT TO ME: 12 DRUMMERS DRUMMING.

Drum roll please…what is your favourite read of this year?

I’ve had many already (even though I did not read much!) so I’d say:

  • The Wrath and The Dawn – Renée Ahdieh
  • The Rose and The Dagger – Renée Ahdieh
  • Unspeakable – Abbie Rushton
  • Dear Evan Hansen – Val Emmich
  • The Wicker King – K. Ancrum
  • Culpables (series) – Mercedes Ron
  • The Sidewalk’s Regrets – Kate Larkindale

I started reading:

  1. I Was Born For This” – Alice Oseman.

Of course I’m enjoying and loving it! It’s Alice Oseman .. no surprise!!

[Book Tag] "I should of read that" book tag.

I haven’t posted anything for a while. I have been very busy with the babies and my study but I miss blogging so much! While scrolling through the new posts shared I came across a really cool tag posted by HollyLovesBooks. As I’ve been wanting to take part in one for a while I thought – Let’s do it!

This tag was created by Beth –  Books Nest.

The rules:

thank the person who tagged you and link back to their post

-link to the creators blog on your post (booknest.co.uk)

-answer the questions below

-tag 10 other to join the tag

So let’s go!

1. A book that a certain friend is always telling you to read.

I’d say “Red Queen” by Victoria Aveyard or “I Was Here” by Gayle Forman. Amélie (for the first one) told me to read it ages ago which I actually tried but couldn’t get into it and Naura for the second, I still haven’t picked it up even though I have it on my bookshelf. Promise both I’ll read them one day! Promise!

2. A book that has been on your tbr forever and yet you still haven’t picked it up.

There are too many books that have been in my TBR forever …. but I would say – the second book of the “Lord of The Rings” séries written by Tolkien. I never got to watch the movies so I really wanted to read them. I bought all the books and to this day I have still only read book one. Oops.

3. A book in a series you have started, but haven’t gotten around to finishing yet.

Hmmm… even though I really enjoyed the first book, I still haven’t picked up the second book in the series “The Immortal” written by Alyson Noël.

4. A classic you have always liked the sound of, but never actually read.

Probably “Of Mice and Men” by Steinbeck! I have no idea why but I just hope to read it someday (I have it in my TBR) there’s also “1984” by Orwell (I also have it in my TBR).

5. A popular book that it seems everyone but you has read.

Definitely the “Fifty Shades” books! I can’t believe how popular the books (and the movies) are. I’m 100% not interested in the, and I’ll never read or watch them even though it’s so popular.

6. A book that inspired a film/TV adaptation that you really love, but you just haven’t read it yet. 

I can’t think of any … only the other way round – I’ve read many books which inspired TV/Film adaptation that I still haven’t watched …

7. A book you see all over Instagram, but haven’t picked up yet.

I’d say “Aurora Rising” by Jay Kristof and Amie Kauffman. I was so excited for it and it’s been in my TBR since the publication but I still haven’t read it even though I keep saying good reviews on Bookstagram.

[Monthly Wrap-up] October 2019.

October! What a month! This is going to be a super short wrap-up again but guys I have good reasons and explanations this time. Okay so, as you may or may not know I was pregnant and due on the 6th of November. On the 9th, I was 37 weeks pregnant on that day, I was meant to be in labour but the next day they told me it stopped. Anyway long story short, I gave birth on the 20th of October (on my parents and great-grand-parents anniversary !!) to our beautiful girl, Nia (it’s the Welsh version of Niamh and it means ‘Bright’). So yes I basically did not read much in October!

I started reading:

  1. “Making Faces” – Amy Harmon

I am reading it in French, and I really enjoyed it! I will talk about it in my November wrap-up.

I paused:

  1. “The Raven Wheel” – A.F. Stone

I did not DNF that one, I really enjoyed reading it and I was almost halfway through it but with everything that happened I was really exhausted and couldn’t focus properly so I prefer to pause it and wait until I’m less tired to read it from the beginning so I can review it properly!


⟼ I read 0 book.

[Monthly Wrap-Up] September 2019.

I’m finally back! I did not get to post my wrap-up for September until now because WordPress wasn’t working on my laptop… I have no idea why, though .. Also I was really tired with the end of the pregnancy. Anyway, here’s a short wrap-up!

I read:

  1. “Radio Silence” – Alice Oseman

It was the first book I read from this author and guys …. omg … WHY ON EARTH DID I WAIT SO LONG ? This book has been on my TBR for ages and I’ve been so stupid for not picking it up before! I loved it so much, and the author writing is absolutely beautiful! I just so want my mum to read this one now !!! I gave it … *drumroll* … 5★ (yes.. no suprise!)

2. “Finding Blossoms in The Darkness” – Simin Sarikhani

I received this book for a Blog Tour and you can find my post here. I gave it 5★ it was a beautiful book to read and .. well you know what ? Just read my post if you want to know my (honest) opinion about this book because you have to read it.

3. “Love From A to Z” – S.K. Ali

I really enjoyed reading this book, it’s a really beautiful story. I don’t know yet if I’m going to review it or not on the blog .. but I gave it 4★

I DNFed:

  1. “Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine” – Gail Honeyman

I heard so much good things about it, so I was really curious. Unfortunately I did not get into it at all..

I started reading:

  1. “The Raven Wheel” – A.F. Stone

⟼ I read 03 books and DNFed 01.

31/60.

I know I’m not going to reach my goal of the year! oops .. It’s okay though as long as I still read a little bit until the end of the year and enjoy the books I will read, I am alright with it. Did you reach yours, yet ?

[Blog Tour + Short Review] “Finding Blossoms in The Darkness” – Simin Sarikhani

“A mother’s journey through deepest loss to hope.”

Today is my first time posting for a ‘Blog Tour’ and it’s for a very important cause as it is a Suicide Prevention Month theme and the book I’m gonna introduce you today is a memoir written by a mother who lost her son after he took his own life. I would like to thank Bookollective (@Bookollective) for inviting me to take part in this ‘Blog Tour’ and for sending me a copy of this book.

Simin Sarikhani is a refugee from revolutionary Iran. She wrote “Finding Blossoms in The Darkness” after the death of her son- Zhubin, who was 21 when he took his own life. Through her memoir, we learn about her life from being a child until she became a mum. She shares with us – her story, her thoughts, her grief, her life, her hope, her faith, the signs she receives from her son.

It’s very hard to speak about this book without spoiling you every details. So it’s gonna be a very short review, but this book was very powerful and heartbreaking to read as well as very touching. The author is showing off all her feelings through her words, she’s not hiding anything or pretending and you can feel it and I guess that’s what I loved even more – the fact that she was so honest and real from the first until the last page.

The book itself is a very beautiful object. It is full of quotes, photos, paintings which helps you get even more into the book and feel part of the author’s life.

Through Simin’s words you learn to discover Zhubin’s life and fight – his story. At the end of the book, it’s like you are part of their family and you’ve known them forever.

Zhubin was suffering with a really difficult condition. He couldn’t have many hours of sleeps and it was very dangerous for his health. His mum had to be very attentive and always prepare to help him. He knew his condition was terminal – that he would never have a treatment. That’s why he decided to take his own life at 21 years old. He prepared everything, every little details were thought of and he was very subtle.

“Take life easy. Be Happy. Be still in your heart, active in your mind.”

Zhubin

It’s definitely not an easy read, but it’s really worth it. It makes you think a lot about yourself and people around you, and how anyone can be suffering and how life can be so short so you have to make the most of it for yourself and with your loved ones. The author – as well as her son ! – is a really strong woman.

  • Links:

https://www.findingblossomsinthedarkness.com

Whenever we buy this book, all the money goes for The Zhubin Foundation, you can find out more about the foundation on the website + links to buy the book.

5/5 ★

I hope you will want to read this memoir after reading my review. Let me know if you do read it!

[Monthly Wrap-Up] August 2019.

Oh finally a ‘wrap-up’ with some content! Yeah! I can’t believe it either! August was also the month I decided to start this new journey on my blog, and I’m so happy I did it.

I read:

  1. The Rose and The Dagger” – Renée Ahdieh (Book 2)

I love this author so much! Omg guys I need to read more of her books because honestly I loved those two books so much! If you haven’t read them, you have to! Obviously I gave it: 5 ★ .

2. “The Sidewalk’s Regrets“- Kate Larkindale

I think it’s the book that got me off my reading slump. I loved it so much. If you want to know more about it, here’s the link to my review! 5 ★ .

3. “Now is Everything” – Amy Giles

You’ll find my review on my blog (now that I’m writing this article, I haven’t posted it yet. So in case I forgot to add the link on this article, just know that you should find my review on the blog). This book was really addictive and I really loved how the author wrote it, even though I guessed the plot and the end very quickly I really enjoyed it. 5 ★ I loved the cover!

4. “Not Hungry” – Karyus Quinn

Just like the previous book, you should find my review on the blog. I read this book in one go but I have really mixed-feeling about this book … I was not convinced at all.. I only gave it 3 ★ but to be honest I think I should have put even less stars ..

I DNFed:

  1. Fangirl” – Rainbow Rowell

Second time I’m trying to read this book (and this time I tried in French) but I don’t know why I really enjoy it but can’t finish it.. Did that ever happened to you ? I think I have heard so many good things about this book and I am really scared to be disappointed..

2. “The Scarlet Letter” – Nathaniel Hawthorne

I wanted to read this one for uni just like “1984” I think it can be interesting for my course.. but no, I just couldn’t get into it. It annoys me, because I studied it a little bit during college and I enjoyed studying it so I would love to discover it properly..

3. “Lily’s Just Fine” – Gill Stewart (Book 1)

I just couldn’t get into the story, I did not like nor enjoy the author writing.. I really liked the cover though.


⟼ I read 04 books and DNFed 03.

It was a better ‘wrap-up’ after such a terrible reading slump. I missed reading so much, but I think starting this new blog helped me a lot. I feel more comfortable and motivated to work on this blog.

28/60.

I’m wondering if I’m gonna be able to reach my goal after this reading slump knowing Baby Girl is gonna be born soon (she’s due beginning of November) and Uni has started now (beginning of September). What do you think ? Can I reach my goal ? Whats yours, if you have one ?

[Monthly Wrap-Up] July 2019.

I am actually thinking I should have posted a ‘wrap-up’ article for both June and July together instead of writing one for each month because it’s not so much better..

I read:

  1. A Contre-Sens” – Mercedes Ron (Book 4)

I actually started reading it while being at the hospital. I was so happy to get to go back into this serie. Now I have to wait for book 5 and it’s so hard! Of course I gave it: 5 ★ .

I DNF:

  1. 1984” -George Orwell

I started reading it in French, but I was really exhausted and couldn’t get into it. It’s a book I wanted to read before uni started because I think it can be interesting to know about it for my course. So I will definitely read it later. I have to admit I really hate the cover… It makes me uncomfortable.. what do you think?


⟼ I read 01 and DNF 01.

Spoiler alert: My next ‘wrap-up’ is gonna be more interesting! yeahhh! Finally!

[Review] “Not Hungry” – Kate Karyus Quinn.

Not Hungry” is a novel about eating disorder written by Kate Karyus Quinn. (I received this book thanks to NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.)

June is suffering. She has an eating disorder but no one sees it because she’s fat, so everyone thinks she’s just on a diet. A strict diet. She is starving herself. And instead of getting help, she’s being congratulated whenever she is not eating. She is keeping her secret really safe until one day .. when Toby, the neighbor, finds out. But he also have is own dark secret.

This is a very short book written in verse. I did not really like this book as to my opinion it wasn’t showing off enough of the mental illness and the real struggle of an eating disorder. Writing in verse for this subject was probably not easy, but I think more was needed.

In this book you will find the theme of – Eating disorder, fat-shaming/bullying.

I don’t think I would recommend it.

[Monthly Wrap-Up] June 2019.

I thought my April wrap-up was terrible but guess what ? I did not do better in June..

I read:

  1. The Loneliest Girl in The Universe” – Lauren James

I loved this book so much, I wasn’t expecting such an amazing story. I really thought it was gonna be a sci-fi, young adult, romance book but really it was way more than that. The main character, Romy, was so amazing and the author has such a powerful writing you could feel all her anxiety through her words. Very beautiful book to read. I gave it 5 ★ . I have to admit.. I almost DNFed it because I was really tired and I was reading it really slowly so I got a bit fed up because I couldn’t get into the story properly and then one night I just went to bed and decided I was gonna read and that night I couldn’t stop reading, and in the end I read it almost in one-sitting. Also I have to say that the cover is absolutely gorgeous!

And that’s it. We’re done. Thankfully I loved the only book I read that month..

⟼ I read 01 book. (Spoiler: my July wrap-up is not better…)

[Book Mail] “The Raven Wheel” A.F. Stone

Hello! Today I decided to share with you all my “book mail”.

Like every bookworm (I guess!) I love going to my mail box and finding packages with books inside (leave the bad news and bills away from my mail box please).

So today I received my first book mail in a while!

Enough chit-chat let’s discover this book –

Firstly I would like to thank A. F. Stone, the author, for sending me her book! I can’t wait to discover it and review it on the blog.


When you’re being dragged under, the choice is fly or die…

The Raven Wheel follows three troubled teenagers as they struggle to seize control of their lives. 

Wayward Tye wants to finally make his father proud. Bright but awkward Kian is desperate to reconnect with his estranged mum. Impulsive rebel, Ria, harbours a secret desire to murder her father. Their lives intertwine as they strive to succeed and find themselves in too deep, too late… 


The book is coming out on September 28th, and it’s being published by Book Guild Publishing.

I am really excited to discover the story and the characters of this story as well as the author writing. I really like the cover, which I find very simple but effective.

As soon as I will have read it, I will review it on the blog and I promise you it will be a honest review as always!

[Monthyl Wrap-Up] May 2019.

This wrap-up is gonna be a bit more interesting than the one from April. I got to read two books I was so looking forward to read so I guess it helped!

I read:

  1. The Immortals” – Alyson Noël (Book 1)

I started reading this book when I was in high school but I never had the chance to finish it. Last year I had the whole serie (in French) for my birthday and Christmas so I decided it was the right time to (re)discover the first book now! I gave it 5 ★ .

2. “A Contre-Sens” – Mercedes Ron (Book 2)

I’m normally not a big fan of this kind of books but omg this serie is definitely one of my favorite! Mercedes Ron is a Spanish author but I read her books in French, I’ve put the title in French because I can’t find the English title nor if the series has been published in English.. The original title is “Culpables“. No surprise: 5 ★ .

3. “A Contre-Sens” – Mercedes Ron (Book 3)

Once again: 5 ★ . Thank god I did not have to wait to read it and then I did not have to long to wait to read book 4 either!

4. “Chère Mamie” – Virginie Grimaldi

A French book I read in one-sitting, I gave it 5 ★ . It was really cute, the author shares her letters to her grandmother. She writes about her holidays, her family, her job, about her life. It was nice to read.

I DNFed:

  1. The Cruel Prince” – Holly Black (Book 1)

Oh … so many people will be disappointed .. I tried so hard to get into the story but it was definitely not the right moment.

I started reading:

  1. The Loneliest Girl in The Universe” – Lauren James


⟼ I read 04 books and DNF 01.

[Review] “Radio Silence” – Alice Oseman.

Alice Oseman is an English author of Young Adult, contemporary, fiction and graphic novels. Her debut novel was “Solitaire” which was published in 2014. “Radio Silence” is her second novel and it was pulished in 2016.

Frances loves a podcast on youtube called “Universe City“, she is a huge fan and has a big place in the fandom. She creates fan art and posts them on Tumblr and Twitter, and one day the Creator message her to ask for a collaboration. She can’t believe it! All her hard work is paying off.

When she goes to a party with a friend she ends up helping Aled, her neighbour. They never really talked to each other before but his twin sister was her best friend. But she’s gone. She disappeared.

When Frances and Aled realise they have a lot in common, and their friendship is growing stronger it gets harder and harder for Frances to keep some secrets from Aled.. such as why his sister is gone.

I honestly loved this book so much, I can’t even describe how much I fell in love with the writing of this author, with the story she wrote and with her characters. The author worked really hard on the main story but also on the story of “Universe City” which takes an important place in the book.

You get caught up in the story, you don’t want to put the book down. You just want to find out what’s going to happen, and the secrets hidden.

Alice Oseman represents many themes in this book such as – the identity (with LGBTQ+ characters), friendship, diversity, school/study, family, acceptation, lies, secrets, …

I would definitely recommend this book to everyone. I can’t believe it took me so long to pick it up from my TBR!

[Review] “Now is Everything” – Amy Giles.

Now is Everything” is a novel written by Amy Giles and published in 2017. She’s also the author of the novel “That Night“.

We’re following the story of Hadley McCauley, the only survivor of a plane crash. When she’s taken to the hospital she tries to kill her herself, so everyone wants to find out why and what really happened because in this crash only her family passed and it was her dad piloting.

All Hadley has ever wanted was to protect her sister from the monster their dad is. During the whole book it gets worse and worse and all you want is for someone to react and help Hadley and her sister to get safe and away from him and their mom who is not helping much, either.

There are no numbered chapters, the book is cut in “Then” and “Now” part so we can find out what happened in the past and who Hadley is and we can also follow the investigation.

This novel speaks up about lots of different subjects such as family violence, self-harming, love and relationship, friendship, contraception, …

I really enjoyed reading this book and discovering the story of Hadley. I got really attached (very quickly) to the characters. You get so many emotions while reading it, you can go from anger to “aw cute” back to “omg kill him”. Hadley is in a (forbidden) relationship with Charlie. He was one of my favorite character because you can tell how much he loves her and how much he wants to help her when he understands what’s happening to her.

I discovered it while looking for books to add to my TBR, and to be honest I never heard of it before and I think it’s a shame because I’m pretty sure every reader who likes young adult’ novel (with a bit of suspens) would enjoy this book!

[Monthly Wrap-Up] April 2019.

Okay so … April’s wrap-up is probably gonna be the quickest wrap-up ever written! You’re not ready for this article.

I read:

  1. Allie Finkle’s Rules for Girls” – Meg Cabot (Book 1)

My little sister loved this serie, she read them all and really wanted me to read them as well so I thought it would be nice as I couldn’t find anything to read. It’s a really nice and easy book to read. I really enjoyed it and gave it 5 ★.

I started:

  1. The immortals” – Alyson Noël (Book 1)

And guys… that’s it. This wrap-up is over and done with! You were not expecting that, were you ? My reading slump got really ‘out of hand’ from April. Good new: I did not DNF any books, though!

⟼ I read 01 book.

[Monthly Wrap-up] March 2019.

My book slump slowly started in March, I was at the beginning of my pregnancy (we found out mid-february) and I was really tired and sick so I started doing other stuff than read (like playing a lot on my Nintendo DS! Yes! It’s so different haha)

I read:

  1. “Le blog ou la vie ?” -Sophie de Villenoisy

It’s a French book, it was quite childish and nice to read but the story wasn’t super interesting. I still gave it 4 .

2. “They Both Die At The End” – Adam Silvera

I decided to re-read one of my favorite book and omg of course I loved just as much (maybe even more) as the first time. Still broke my heart of course but it’s Adam Silvera. No surprise – I gave it 5 .

I ‘DNF’ed:

  1. Outlander” – Diana Gabaldon (Book 1)

I think I prefer to watch the TV show for the moment.

2. “Odd one out” – Nic Stone


I’ll give it a try later, it wasn’t the right moment. I read few pages and couldn’t remember what I was reading so I thought there was no point.

I started reading:

  1. Allie Finkle’s rules for girls” – Meg Cabot (Book 1)

⟼ I read 02 and DNF 02.

[Monthly Wrap-Up] February 2019.

In February I started my journey into ‘DNF’ing books …. Before, I used to force myself into finishing the books I was reading but from February I started ‘DNF’ing because I think I have the right to decide that the book I picked is not corresponding to my actual mood or that (and it’s okay) I don’t like the book I chose. I’d rather stop reading it and keeping it for another time or decide it’s not a book for me – than forcing myself and not enjoying it anyway! So yeah, you’re gonna see that from this wrap-up I have ‘DNF’ many books this year!

So let’s start with the books I read:

  1. Fandom” – Anna Day (Book 1)

I was so looking forward to read this book, but I was a bit disappointed in the end by the story. I was really expecting loads from this book, I gave it 3 but I think i’ll still read the second book. I read it in French.

2. “The Future of Us” – Jay Asher, Carolyn Mackler

I found this book when we went on a weekend to Wales and we went book shopping in Waterstones (I bought so many on this day! oops). I really liked the résumé and thought I would give it a go! I gave it 5 and you should definitely read it!

3. “Aime-moi je te fuis” – Morgane Moncomble (Book 2)

This book! Oh this book! Well I’ve got to say I loved it as much as book 1. Morgane Moncomble is a French author and I hope her books will be translated in English so you all can read it (Don’t get me wrong but I’m quite sure her first book is being published in Germany soon so go read it). I gave it 5 .

4. “Lovely Vicious” – Sara Wolf (Book 3)

I read the whole serie in French, but book 3 was not my favorite. I gave it 4

5. “Silently Falling” – Liz Plum

I’ve seen so many bad reviews about this book, I really enjoyed it and got quite attached to the characters. I gave it 5 and read it in French!

6. “The Wicker King” – K. Ancrum (Book 1)

This book guys! This book …. wow. Crazy! I don’t have enough words to describe this book. Just go read it, honestly! I read the French version and gave it 5 I can’t wait for book 2.

7. “Merci Maîtresse” – Anouk F

It’s a French book written by a teacher. She tells her story as a teacher in a school where many things happened. It’s a real story. It was really different than what I am used to read but I really liked discovering the point of view of the teacher. I gave it 5 .

The books I have ‘DNF’:

  1. Vicious” – V.E. Schwab (Evil, Book 1)

I really like this author, so I think I just picked this book at the wrong time and I will give it another go! It’s the French version that I have in my TBR.

2. “Every Day” – David Levithan (Book 1)

It’s also the French version, but unlike “Vicious” I don’t think I’ll give it another try .. I really couldn’t get into this story ..

Before the end of the month I started reading:

  1. Le blog ou la vie ?” – Sophie de Villenoisy

It will be part of my wrap up from March!


⟼ I read 07 books and DNFed 02.

[Tag] The Ultimate Book Tag.

I was looking for a ‘book tag’ when I came across “the ultimate book tag” on https://jenjenreviews.wordpress.com ‘ blog. I won’t tag anyone as I don’t really like being tagged (I like being able to just discover a tag and think “oh i want to do it” and credit the blog I found it on. It’s less stressful than being tagged) so feel free to just do it if you want to!

1. Do you get sick while reading in the car?

I don’t read in the car because I am sick just by thinking I need to get in a car.. so imagine if I was reading .. (I tried before, and yes I do!)

2. Which author’s writing style is completely unique to you and why?

I don’t think anyone will be surprised by my answer: Adam Silver. He breaks my heart every time (and you know he’s gonna break your heart just by reading the title) but I still go back to his books every time!

3. Harry Potter Series or the Twilight Saga? Give three points to defend your answers.

I’ll say “Harry Potter“.
1. I haven’t read “Twilight”.
2. “Harry Potter” was a big part of my childhood.
3. I prefer wizards over vampires.

4. Do you carry a book bag? If so, what’s in it (besides books…)?

Basically a bag, right ? Well I have my kindle (hehehe), my cards (I don’t have a wallet I have no space for it!), Léo’s health book, his blanket, a pair of socks (for Léo, not for me, but I actually don’t know why I have them here anyway), my passport and my ID card, nappies and changing mat, my pregnancy belt. Too many things in this bag.

5. Do you smell your books?

I mostly read on my Kindle so … But sometimes I do, yes!

6. Books with or without little illustrations?

Without. Well I don’t mind the illustrations but in most of my books I don’t have illustrations.

7. What book did you love while reading but discovered later it wasn’t quality writing?

I’m trying to think about it .. I can’t think about any titles, even though I’m sure there’s one.. I might say “She’s With Me” (book 1) by Jessica Cunsolo. I enjoyed reading it, but when I think about it now it was not crazy crazy..

8. Do you have any funny stories involving books from your childhood? Please share!

Okay I have one! It’s not funny to be honest but anyway. I was going to the shop with my grandmother and we took a trolley. In this trolley there was a book, the book was in English. I was 8 years old if I can remember and anyway from that day for weeks I pretended to read this book (in my head and out loud) in English and yup I enjoyed it (I don’t know what I read to be honest I was pretending it was the story of “Grease” because the cover had a woman on it and she was reminding me of Rizzo from “Grease” and I use to watch it every weekends so why not !?

9. What is the thinnest book on your shelf?

I think it’s “Le faire ou mourir” by Claire-Lise Marguier which is 104 pages. I might have thinnest ones but my books are in boxes so this one is on the shelf.

10. What is the thickest book on your shelf?

It’s probably my pocket French version of “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” it’s over thousand pages.

11. Do you write as well as read? Do you see yourself in the future as being an author?

I use to write when I was younger and sometimes I like writing but it’s no big things. I can’t picture myself as an author but maybe one day I’ll have an amazing idea and I’ll go for it and why not!

12. When did you get into reading?

When I was a kid! I’ve always had books around me as everyone read in my family. (Everyone reads even Léo. We found him with a book in his bed last night when we thought he was asleep! haha he is only one year old!)

13. What is your favourite classic book?

“The Diary of a Young Girl” by Anne Frank !

14. In school what was your best subject ?

English!

15. If you were given a book as a present that you had read before and hated… what would you do?

I don’t know … I’d tell the person.. and then see if the person wants it, I guess ?

16. What is a lesser known series that you know of that is similar to Harry Potter or The Hunger Games?

The serie “Shades of Magic” by V.E. Schwab maybe ? Everyone knows about it in the blogger/bookstagram world but too many people still don’t know about it.

17. What is a bad habit you always do (besides rambling) while filming?

I mumble a lot.

18. What is your favourite word?

Book ? I don’t know. I would love to say ‘fuck’ but it’s not a very nice word oops.

19. Are you a nerd, dork, or dweeb? Or all of the above?

I’m just a bookworm.

20. Vampires or Fairies? Why?

Fairies. It’s nicer, and I hate blood?

21. Shapeshifters or Angels? Why?

Angels? I don’t know

22. Spirits or Werewolves? Why?

I like both I don’t know.

23. Zombies or vampires? Why?

I’d say vampires this time because zombies are creepy.

24. Love Triangle or Forbidden Love?

I’m not too fond on any … but I’ll say forbidden love as one of my favorite serie as a what I think is a forbidden love the main characters are in love but they are meant to be step-brother/sister. So…

25. Full on romance books or action-packed with a few love scenes mixed in?

Both! I use to hate romance now I enjoy them so I’d say both.

This tag is over now, and remember I’m not tagging anyone so feel free to do it if you want to! and if you do it, just leave me a comment so I can come and read your answer. I’m really curious to find out about your answers too!

[Monthly Wrap-Up] January 2019.

As I started my blog only few weeks ago in August, I have never posted ‘monthly wrap-up’ on the blog. At first I wanted to do a full article from January until August but I finally decided that I will update you on the books I read this year with an article for each month. It will be nicer for you to read if it’s not too long.

I did set a goal of books to read for the GoodReads 2019 Reading Challenge. My goal is to read 60 books this year.

I will put the title of the books in English (unless there are French books) but I’ll precise if I read it in French (VF) or in English. I will also post the covers of the book in the version I read so you can discover differents covers versions of the books, because we don’t have the same (sometimes we do) from one country to another. So let’s get started with my wrap-up from January.

  1. 13 Minutes” – Sarah Pinborough

I started 2019 by reading “13 Minutes” in French. I gave it 5 ★.

2. “The Wrath and The Dawn” – Renée Ahdieh (Book 1)

I read this one in English and I loved it so much! And this cover is gorgeous. I gave it 5 ★.

3. “Always and Forever, Lara Jean” – Jenny Han (Book 3)

I was a bit disappointed with this one.. I was really looking forward to read it, but I thought the story went too quickly and I needed more than that. I read it in French and gave it 4 .

4. “Unspeakable” – Abbie Rushton

I loved this book so much and would definitely recommend it! I never heard of it before I went to WH Smith when I was in Cardiff! I paid £3 for this book, and it was the best three pounds I’ve ever spent! I love the cover, and once you read the book you will understand why this cover is gorgeous + meaningful. I read it in English and gave it 5 ★.

5. “Made you up” – Francesca Zappia

I read this one in French, and I was really hoping to enjoy it more than that. I liked it but not as much as “Eliza and Her Monsters“. I still gave it 4 ★ because it was still a good book.

6. “Dear Evan Hansen” – Val Emmich

I could read this book over and over again! I loved it soooooooooo much! I read it in English and gave it 5 ★ but I wish I coud give it 100 stars! I think I will translate my review of this book I posted on my French blog because I loved it so much I just want everyone to read it.

7. “The Memory Book” – Lara Avery

It was a really good book that I read in its French version. I gave it 5 ★.

8. “The Scythe” – Neal Shusterman (Book 1)

I was really scared to discover this book. When it was release in France (I read it in French) everyone was talking about it for such a long time and it was so positive that I was scared to read it and not liking it as much as everyone else. In the end, I was really surprised and I really enjoyed it! I gave it 5 ★ and I can’t wait to read book 2!

⟼ I read a total of 08 books in January.

08/60.

Are there any books that you also read or that you have in your TBR ?

[ARC Review] “The Sidewalk’s Regrets” – Kate Larkindale

Here I am for my first review on this blog and I am so excited to talk to you about this book. Thank you “BookSirens” for sending me an ARC.

Trigger Warning: Explicit drugs use.

It’s a very dark, beautiful, emotional, tragic but also full of hope kind of book. As it’s written on the front cover “Despite what the songs say, sometimes love isn’t all you need.


Seventeen-year-old Sacha McLeod isn’t looking for someone to rock her world. But when she hears the boy in the music store play the guitar, the music thrills her and she falls hard for Dylan and his sound. 

Sacha finds herself spending less time with her violin and more time with this guy. Her plans for her violin-virtuoso future—and her self-confidence—are shattered when she screws up the audition for a summer music program. Failure isn’t something she’s had to face before, so when Dylan asks her to spend her vacation with him in the city, she lies to her parents, pretends she won a place in the summer school, and secretly moves in with Dylan. 

She’s expecting romance, music, and passion, but when she finds herself playing second fiddle to Dylan’s newly acquired drug habit, she realizes despite what the songs say, sometimes love isn’t all you need.


Kate Larkindale is a contemporary Young Adult novel writer who lives in New Zealand. She also wrote “An Unstill Life” and “Stumped“.

Sasha McLeod is the main character of this story, she’s 17 years old and dedicates her life to her violin lessons and her music. Her life is going to change and will take a complete different turn when she meets Dylan in a music shop. It’s love at first sight and she would do anything to be able to live this love story. Sasha is a really smart and well-behaved teenager who wouldn’t do anything without her parents aproval but very quickly her relationship takes over all her good maners and lying becomes natural.

She is working hard to get into a music class during the summer on the other side of the country, but when she doesn’t get through she prefers to lie to everyone and pretend she got in to live her life in the city with Dylan and his bandmates. She expect this summer to be all sparkles, love and about music but really that’s when her life starts getting very different and messy compared to what she’s normally used to.

I first thought it was gonna be one of those typical teen romance, where the really smart girl falls in love with the bad boy, and it all goes super quickly because it’s obviously love at first sight. But no! Not at all! At first I was a bit disappointed because the story and mainly the love story was going very fast: they meet, first ‘date’, first kiss, and then they are together but I quickly understood that it was all done on purpose so the author could go way further into the story and build them a proper relationship with its ups and downs. I wasn’t expecting the story to get so dark and explicit about the use of drugs which made me sometimes really uncomfortable reading it because it was so well written that I was so into the book and that I was kind of feeling what the characters were feeling. Also, I really enjoyed the writing of the author which was very lyrical sometimes and as the books is all really centered about music (Classic and Rock music) it was amazing and beautiful to read but also very heartbreaking.

I would recommend this book to any dark romance lover, and even if this book as been classified as Young Adult I think it should be changed to older readers due to the explicit use of drugs even though the author shows and prove you can ask for help and recover if you really want to.

5/5 ⭐

[TBR] Books I want to read in 2019.

I never make a TBR, well I’m trying sometimes but I’m more like a mood reader or I ask Rhys to pick a paper from a jar I made so I read the book he picked out. But this year I thought I would like to discover more books I’ve had for a while in my bookshelves or kindle and so I decided to make a list of books I would like to read in 2019. There are 40 books in this list (in French and in English) and I’m hoping to read them all!

I say I’m hoping because to be honest with you guys I have a funny story to tell you…. well no it’s not very funny but anyway! So beginning of July we were out with Rhys and Léo to meet up (for the first time) with a friend I met thanks to bookstagram BUT we broke down on the motorway and we had to say goodbye to our car and omg that day was a nightmare and I thought once the day will be over the nightmare will stop but really this week was a nightmare and so the next day I was out with my mum and when we came home and I went in our bedroom I found our wardrobe bent like .. bent like wtf it was breaking (I bought it over a year ago so it would be easier as we have a small room and it was fabric so I knew it would be crap but hey really?!) so anyway the only thing I could do was taking down the wardrobe completely, and put all my books in boxes so I could use my bookshelves as a wardrobe until we move out (it’s a small bookshelf but it’s good and my dad made it so believe me it’s not gonna break!) anyway so I kept only a few books on the first shelf but most of my books are in boxes ….. so I don’t know if I’m gonna be able to read all of them unless i get the kindle version! Anyway! This was my little story.


So let’s get back to our real topic: my 2019 TBR pile! So as I was saying there are many books from my original TBR in boxes so I decided to change it a little bit so I can actually read some!

I’ll put a in front of the books I’ve read and I’ll put “VF” if I’ll read it in French otherwise it means I’m reading it in English! 🙂

40 → Am I Normal Yet ? – Holly Bourne

I read 12/40 so far. (I DNF 03.)

Let me know if we are sharing some titles in our TBR, and if you read any or you are planning to!

I have a feeling I’m not gonna read more than 15 from the list, I don’t know why but I have this feeling but that’s okay it’s not a competition just and I already tried to read quite a few that I (DNF) so … I’ll try again .. or not … I don’t know yet!

Anyway, wish me luck!
