Sonya was born with the rare gift to feel what those around her feel—both physically and emotionally—a gift she’s kept hidden from the empire for seventeen long years. After a reckless mistake wipes out all the other girls with similar abilities, Sonya is hauled off to the palace and forced to serve the emperor as his sovereign Auraseer.

Tasked with sensing the intentions of would-be assassins, Sonya is under constant pressure to protect the emperor. One mistake, one small failure, will cost her own life and the lives of the few people left in the world who still trust her.

But Sonya’s power is untamed and reckless, her feelings easily usurped, and she sometimes can’t decipher when other people’s impulses end and her own begin. In a palace full of warring emotions and looming darkness, Sonya fears that the biggest danger to the empire may be herself.

As she struggles to wrangle her abilities, Sonya seeks refuge in her tenuous alliances with the volatile Emperor Valko and his idealistic younger brother, Anton, the crown prince. But when threats of revolution pit the two brothers against each other, Sonya must choose which brother to trust—and which to betray.

What's new? The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury



 

 
Hello, hello bookish friends!
I really miss this blog and stop by some others, but I’ve been having problems with my internet connection and now I’m definitely changing from company (sorry, I’m not sure if that’s the words you use in your country). So it might take a while to come back completely to this amazing world.
I hope you’re having a great time!

 For now, I'm pining for The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury.

Check it out!

She is the most powerful Jinni of all. He is a boy from the streets. Their love will shake the world...

When Aladdin discovers Zahra's jinni lamp, Zahra is thrust back into a world she hasn't seen in hundreds of years -- a world where magic is forbidden and Zahra's very existence is illegal. She must disguise herself to stay alive, using ancient shape-shifting magic, until her new master has selected his three wishes.

But when the King of the Jinn offers Zahra a chance to be free of her lamp forever, she seizes the opportunity—only to discover she is falling in love with Aladdin. When saving herself means betraying him, Zahra must decide once and for all: is winning her freedom worth losing her heart?

As time unravels and her enemies close in, Zahra finds herself suspended between danger and desire in this dazzling retelling of Arabian Nights from acclaimed author Jessica Khoury

Check it out!

Expected publication: February 23rd 2016 by Balzer + Bray
 

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17285330-the-last-time-we-say-goodbye 

Lorelai Diederich, crown princess and fugitive at large, has one mission: kill the wicked queen who took both the Ravenspire throne and the life of her father. To do that, Lorelai needs to use the one weapon she and Queen Irina have in common—magic. She’ll have to be stronger, faster, and more powerful than Irina, the most dangerous sorceress Ravenspire has ever seen.

In the neighboring kingdom of Eldr, when Prince Kol’s father and older brother are killed by an invading army of magic-wielding ogres, the second-born prince is suddenly given the responsibility of saving his kingdom. To do that, Kol needs magic—and the only way to get it is to make a deal with the queen of Ravenspire, promise to become her personal huntsman…and bring her Lorelai’s heart.

But Lorelai is nothing like Kol expected—beautiful, fierce, and unstoppable—and despite dark magic, Lorelai is drawn in by the passionate and troubled king. Fighting to stay one step ahead of the dragon huntsman—who she likes far more than she should—Lorelai does everything in her power to ruin the wicked queen. But Irina isn’t going down without a fight, and her final move may cost the princess the one thing she still has left to lose.

Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne.

Some Books Ago: Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma


If you realize, every Tuesday I post about the new books I discover. So, I wanted to give a shout out to all those books published some years ago, that maybe some readers may have forgotten.


After reading and loving The Walls Around Us, I can't wait to read more by Nova Ren Suma. Her writing is fantastic and I've read that this book is as good as TWAU!

Imaginary Girls was published on June 14th 2011 by Dutton Juvenile


 


Summary:
Chloe's older sister, Ruby, is the girl everyone looks to and longs for, who can't be captured or caged. When a night with Ruby's friends goes horribly wrong and Chloe discovers the dead body of her classmate London Hayes left floating in the reservoir, Chloe is sent away from town and away from Ruby.

But Ruby will do anything to get her sister back, and when Chloe returns to town two years later, deadly surprises await. As Chloe flirts with the truth that Ruby has hidden deeply away, the fragile line between life and death is redrawn by the complex bonds of sisterhood.

With palpable drama and delicious craft, Nova Ren Suma bursts onto the YA scene with the story that everyone will be talking about.

Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay



PRINCES OF THORNS
Author Stacey Jay
My Rating: 5 stars
Summary:
Though she looks like a mere mortal, Princess Aurora is a fairy blessed with enhanced strength, bravery, and mercy yet cursed to destroy the free will of any male who kisses her. Disguised as a boy, she enlists the help of the handsome but also cursed Prince Niklaas to fight legions of evil and free her brother from the ogre queen who stole Aurora's throne ten years ago.
Will Aurora triumph over evil and reach her brother before it's too late? Can Aurora and Niklaas break the curses that will otherwise forever keep them from finding their one true love?




*****


I don’t know if I’ve said this in public already, but I HATED Juliet Immortal, the first book I read by Stacey Jay. Really, I hated it.
So, when I read Ari @ Reading After Midnight’s review of Of Best and Beauty I wasn’t eager to read it. But I ended up taken aback because I ADORED IT.
Since that day I’ve been really excited about Princess of Thorns. I was dying to read. So, at soon as it landed on my kindle, I started to read it.
And once again, I felt in love with a new Stacey Jay book.
Princess of Thorns was not what I expected. I blame the synopsis for that, because I feel it’s wrong.
Aurora is such a brave and funny character. She and Niklaas had the best camaraderie I’ve read in YA books.
Princess of Thorns reminds me a little of Graceling, though I liked this one better. It reminds me of Thorn and Cress, too. They’re that cute together.
Even thought I felt a little confused about the world building: there were human, witches, ogres, fey, feeding tress, etc, with little explanation about them, I loved the fantasy, I loved the landscapes described, and I loved the myths and legends within.
You know, Princess of Thorns is one of the few books I kept picturing in my head, like a movie.
The romance came fast, because Aurora and Niklaas were just three weeks together, but it felt like it grew slowly. They were stubborn and childish together, but I loved them anyway.
And then, there were the villains: horrible, cruel and… surprising.
The ending wasn’t the blood-bath I was waiting for (hey, it was fantasy!), but it unexpected.
Overall, Princess of Thorns is an amazing fantasy standalone. You have battles, magic, an almost impossible quest and a beautiful romance.
Well deserved 5 stars for me.
