C'est bien calme pour les sorties du mois de décembre.
Je n'ai pas repéré beaucoup de titres. Le portefeuille va pouvoir souffler avant de chauffer à nouveau en 2021 ;)

Titres VO :

 An Ember in the Ashes#4 : A Sky beyond the Storm, Sabaa Tahir

Prepare for the jaw-dropping finale of Sabaa Tahir's beloved New York Times bestselling An Ember in the Ashes fantasy series, and discover: Who will survive the storm?

Picking up just a few months after A Reaper at the Gates left off...

The long-imprisoned jinn are on the attack, wreaking bloody havoc in villages and cities alike. But for the Nightbringer, vengeance on his human foes is just the beginning.

At his side, Commandant Keris Veturia declares herself Empress, and calls for the heads of any and all who defy her rule. At the top of the list? The Blood Shrike and her remaining family.

Laia of Serra, now allied with the Blood Shrike, struggles to recover from the loss of the two people most important to her. Determined to stop the approaching apocalypse, she throws herself into the destruction of the Nightbringer. In the process, she awakens an ancient power that could lead her to victory--or to an unimaginable doom.

And deep in the Waiting Place, the Soul Catcher seeks only to forget the life--and love--he left behind. Yet doing so means ignoring the trail of murder left by the Nightbringer and his jinn. To uphold his oath and protect the human world from the supernatural, the Soul Catcher must look beyond the borders of his own land. He must take on a mission that could save--or destroy--all that he knows.

Parution le 1er décembre

Je n'ai lu que le premier tome de cette série. J'en garde un très bon souvenir et je suis très curieuse de découvrir la suite. J'ai entendu beaucoup de chose sur le sort que Sabaa Tahir réserve à ses personnages. Hâte de voir ça de mes propres yeux. Le final sort le mois prochain. Je vais pouvoir enchaîner les tomes de cette excellente série. Si vous ne l'avez pas déjà lue, je vous la recommande vivement !!


Admission, Julie Buxbaum

From the New York Times bestselling author of Tell Me Three Things comes an of-the-moment novel that peeks inside the private lives of the hypercompetitive and the hyperprivileged and takes on the college admissions bribery scandal that rocked the country.

It's good to be Chloe Wynn Berringer. She's headed off to the college of her dreams. She's going to prom with the boy she's had a crush on since middle school. Her best friend always has her back, and her mom, a B-list Hollywood celebrity, may finally be on her way to the B+ list. It's good to be Chloe Wynn Berringer--at least, it was, until the FBI came knocking on her front door, guns at the ready, and her future went up in smoke. Now her mother is under arrest in a massive college admissions bribery scandal. Chloe, too, might be facing charges, and even time behind bars. The public is furious, the press is rabid, and the US attorney is out for blood.

As she loses everything she's long taken for granted, Chloe must reckon not only with the truth of what happened, but also with the examination of her own guilt. Why did her parents think the only way for her to succeed was to cheat for her? What did she know, and when did she know it? And perhaps most importantly, what does it mean to be complicit?

Parution le 1er décembre

J'aime beaucoup le style de Julie Buxbaum. Elle joue finement avec les mots pour traiter de sujets pas toujours simples. C'est fait avec justesse et sans fioritures. Ce nouveau titre m'intrigue. Une fille populaire qui voit son monde s'écrouler, des secrets que l'on préférerait voir rester cachés... Pourquoi pas.


The Simple Wild#2.5 : Forever Wild, K. A. Tucker

From the international bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes Forever Wild, a novella that continues the story of Calla’s journey to the Alaskan wild and a life she never imagined for herself.
The holiday season is upon Calla and Jonah, and with the mistletoe and gingerbread comes plenty of family drama. Jonah is bracing himself for two weeks with a stepfather he loathes, and while Calla is looking forward to her mother and Simon’s arrival, she dreads the continued pressure to set a date for their wedding … in Toronto. Add in one bullheaded neighbor’s unintentional meddling and another cantankerous neighbor’s own family strife, and Christmas in Trapper’s Crossing will be anything but simple.

Parution le 1er décembre

J'avais eu une très bonne surprise en lisant le premier tome. Ca avait assez mal commencé entre Calla et moi, finalement j'avais passé un super moment. Je n'ai pas encore la suite mais çe ne saurait tarder. Et je compte bien découvrir ce final ensuite :) Amateurs de romance et de nature sauvage, vous trouverez votre bonheur avec cette histoire.


Layla, Colleen Hoover

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Colleen Hoover comes a novel that explores life after tragedy and the enduring spirit of love.

When Leeds meets Layla, he’s convinced he’ll spend the rest of his life with her—until an unexpected attack leaves Layla fighting for her life. After weeks in the hospital, Layla recovers physically, but the emotional and mental scarring has altered the woman Leeds fell in love with. In order to put their relationship back on track, Leeds whisks Layla away to the bed-and-breakfast where they first met. Once they arrive, Layla’s behavior takes a bizarre turn. And that’s just one of many inexplicable occurrences.

Feeling distant from Layla, Leeds soon finds solace in Willow—another guest of the B&B with whom he forms a connection through their shared concerns. As his curiosity for Willow grows, his decision to help her find answers puts him in direct conflict with Layla’s well-being. Leeds soon realizes he has to make a choice because he can’t help both of them. But if he makes the wrong choice, it could be detrimental for all of them.

Parution le 8 décembre

Je ne manque aucun Colleen Hoover. Elle a le don pour écrire des récits qui prennent aux tripes. Et celui-ci est le premier écrit fantastique de l'auteure... impossible donc de passer à côté. Je suis impatiente de voir ce qu'elle donne dans ce nouveau registre.
