Voici les dernières parutions en VO pour l’instant qui me plaisent le plus.
Once and for all de Sarah Dessen – Sorti le 6 Juin 2015
Une romance contemporaine toute douce.
« As bubbly as champagne and delectable as wedding cake, Once and for All, Sarah Dessen’s thirteenth novel, is set in the world of wedding planning, where crises are routine.
Louna, daughter of famed wedding planner Natalie Barrett, has seen every sort of wedding: on the beach, at historic mansions, in fancy hotels and clubs. Perhaps that’s why she’s cynical about happily-ever-after endings, especially since her own first love ended tragically. When Louna meets charming, happy-go-lucky serial dater Ambrose, she holds him at arm’s length. But Ambrose isn’t about to be discouraged, now that he’s met the one girl he really wants.
Sarah Dessen’s many, many fans will adore her latest, a richly satisfying, enormously entertaining story that has everything—humor, romance, and an ending both happy and imperfect, just like life itself. »
Into the Water de Paula Hawkins – Sorti le 2 Mai 2017
Après le très excellent et très efficace thriller “La fille du train” l’auteure revient avec un nouvel opus. Il me semble qu’il est déjà disponible en français.
« A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.
Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.
With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.
Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath. »
Release de Patrick Ness – Sorti le 4 Mai 2017
Après être tombé sous le charme de cet auteur avec “Quelques minutes après minuit” j’ai très envie de lire un autre roman de sa plume
« Inspired by Mrs Dalloway and Judy Blume’s Forever, Release is one day in the life of Adam Thorn, 17. It’s a big day. Things go wrong. It’s intense, and all the while, weirdness approaches…
Adam Thorn is having what will turn out to be the most unsettling, difficult day of his life, with relationships fracturing, a harrowing incident at work, and a showdown between this gay teen and his preacher father that changes everything. It’s a day of confrontation, running, sex, love, heartbreak, and maybe, just maybe, hope. He won’t come out of it unchanged. And all the while, lurking at the edges of the story, something extraordinary and unsettling is on a collision course. »

Un nouveau roman compagnon pour la saga Outlander
« A collection of seven short stories set in the Outlander universe, never before published together, including two original stories. »
Eleventh Grave in Moonlight de Darynda Jones
Le Tome 11 de Charley Davidson, je n’en suis dans la saga qu’au tome 3 mais j’ai bien l’intention d’en découvrir 1 par mois.
« A typical day in the life of Charley Davidson involves cheating husbands, errant wives, missing people, philandering business owners, and, oh yeah…demons, hell hounds, evil gods, and dead people–lots of them. As a part-time private investigator and full-time Grim Reaper, Charley has to balance the good, the bad, and the undead. And those who want her dead, of course. But Charley’s learning to make peace with her fate: Sure, the forces of hell are determined to see Charley banished forever to the darkest corners of another dimension–with the son of Satan himself as her husband and world-rocking lover. But she can still find a way to have her happily-ever-after after all…right?
Praise for the Grave! »
