In My Mailbox a été mis en place par Kristi du blog The Story Siren et inspiré par Alea du blog Pop Culture Junkie. C'est un moyen de partager les livres reçut chaque semaine dans notre boîte aux lettres ainsi que les livres achetés ou empruntés à la bibliothèque. En France le principe est repris par Liliebook et c'est sur son blog que tous les liens sont regroupés.
Je ne pense pas faire ce rendez-vous toutes les semaines mais dès que je reçois quelque chose ou que j'achète. Cette semaine j'ai emprunté et acheté quelques livres.
Rouge Rubis de Kerstin Gier
Gwendolyne a 16 ans. Elle vit à Londres. Vie normale, scolarité normale dans une grande école privée, famille normale, en apparence… Car cette famille a un secret : certaines filles sont porteuses d’un gène qui leur permet de voyager dans le temps. Le premier tome d’une trilogie exceptionnelle. Une histoire qui mêle délicieusement trois thèmes : l’adolescence, l’amour et le fantastique.
Mystic City de Theo Lawrence
Aria Rose, youngest scion of one of Mystic City's two ruling rival families, finds herself betrothed to Thomas Foster, the son of her parents' sworn enemies. The union of the two will end the generations-long political feud—and unite all those living in the Aeries, the privileged upper reaches of the city, against the banished mystics who dwell below in the Depths. But Aria doesn't remember falling in love with Thomas; in fact, she wakes one day with huge gaps in her memory. And she can't conceive why her parents would have agreed to unite with the Fosters in the first place. Only when Aria meets Hunter, a gorgeous rebel mystic from the Depths, does she start to have glimmers of recollection—and to understand that he holds the key to unlocking her past. The choices she makes can save or doom the city—including herself.
Black city d'Elizabeth Richards
In a city where humans and Darklings are now separated by a high wall and tensions between the two races still simmer after a terrible war, sixteen-year-olds Ash Fisher, a half-blood Darkling, and Natalie Buchanan, a human and the daughter of the Emissary, meet and do the unthinkable—they fall in love. Bonded by a mysterious connection that causes Ash’s long-dormant heart to beat, Ash and Natalie first deny and then struggle to fight their forbidden feelings for each other, knowing if they’re caught, they’ll be executed—but their feelings are too strong.
When Ash and Natalie then find themselves at the center of a deadly conspiracy that threatens to pull the humans and Darklings back into war, they must make hard choices that could result in both their deaths.
Partials de Dan Wells
The human race is all but extinct after a war with Partials—engineered organic beings identical to humans—has decimated the population. Reduced to only tens of thousands by RM, a weaponized virus to which only a fraction of humanity is immune, the survivors in North America have huddled together on Long Island while the Partials have mysteriously retreated. The threat of the Partials is still imminent, but, worse, no baby has been born immune to RM in more than a decade. Our time is running out.
Kira, a sixteen-year-old medic-in-training, is on the front lines of this battle, seeing RM ravage the community while mandatory pregnancy laws have pushed what's left of humanity to the brink of civil war, and she's not content to stand by and watch. But as she makes a desperate decision to save the last of her race, she will find that the survival of humans and Partials alike rests in her attempts to uncover the connections between them—connections that humanity has forgotten, or perhaps never even knew were there.
