Siren & The Sandcastle Empire : Mes deux dernières déceptions

Aujourd’hui on se retrouve pour un format de chronique un peu particulier ; en effet cet article ne contiendra pas une mais deux chroniques (donc plus courtes qu’habituellement) sur mes deux dernières lectures : Siren, le troisième tome de la série The Vinyl Trilogy de Sophia Elaine Hanson, et The Sandcastle Empire de Kayla Olson.

Je n’irai pas jusqu’à dire que j’ai détesté ces lectures, mais elles ont néanmoins été des déceptions pour moi.. Poursuivre la lecture de « Siren & The Sandcastle Empire : Mes deux dernières déceptions »

La tête sous l’eau d’Olivier Adam

▬ Synopsis

Quand mon père est ressorti du commissariat, il avait l’air perdu. Il m’a pris dans ses bras et s’est mis à pleurer. Un court instant j’ai pensé : ça y est, on y est. Léa est morte.
Puis il s’est écarté et j’ai vu un putain de sourire se former sur son visage. Les mots avaient du mal à sortir. Il a fini par balbutier :  » On l’a retrouvée. Merde alors. On l’a retrouvée. C’en est fini de ce cauchemar.  »
Il se trompait. Ma sœur serait bientôt de retour mais nous n’en avions pas terminé.

Blind Kiss de Renée Carlino

▬ Synopsis

Lecture VO

A powerful story of two people who spend years denying their scientifically-proven chemistry.

Penny spends her afternoons sitting outside a sandwich shop, surrounded by ghosts. Fourteen years ago, this shop was her childhood dance studio… Now she’s a suburban housewife, dreading the moment her son departs for MIT, leaving her with an impeccably decorated McMansion and a failing marriage. She had her chance at wild, stars-in-her-eyes happiness, but that was a lifetime ago. After The Kiss. Before The Decision.

The Kiss was soulful. Magical. Earth-shattering, And it was all for a free gift card. Asked to participate in a psych study that posed the question, “Can you have sexual chemistry without knowing what the other person looks like?” Penny agreed to be blindfolded, make polite conversation with a total stranger, and kiss him. She never expected The Kiss to change her life forever and introduce her to Gavin: tattooed, gorgeous, and spontaneous enough to ask her out seconds after the blindfolds came off.

For a year, they danced between friendship and romance—until Penny made The Decision that forced them to settle for friendship. Now, fourteen years later, both of their lives are about to radically change—and it’s his turn to decide what will become of their once-in-a-lifetime connection.
