Wednesday night #squadgoals I've got my book from the reading challenge (need to read a steampunk book), a beer, and my best friend. Thanks #cheriepriest , I'm digging #Boneshaker! So is Emmett... #pitbullsofinstagram #dogsofinstagram

🏵 🗡 🏵 I a m P r i n c e s s e X 🌿 C h e r i e P r i e s t 🏵 🗡 🏵 🌿 Un classique cas de lecture oui-mais-non 😕
🌿 Un concept sympa, celui de mettre une histoire dans l'histoire sous forme d'un comics. Un message moderne et féministe, un ensemble très soigné, très travaillé.
🌿 Le principal et même le seul point positif pour moi a été une certaine fluidité de lecture. Du moins pour la première partie, la fin a été plus poussive, dès que j'ai compris que rien de passionnant n'allait finalement arriver, je n'ai plus été intéressée par ce livre.
🌿 Les moteurs de l'intrigue sont tirés par les cheveux, ça a un effet irréel façon comics peut-être volontaire, mais qui m'a fait surtout penser à un mauvais Club des Cinq. Sans le chien hélas ! 😊
🌿 Autre faiblesse, rédhibitoire en ce qui me concerne, les personnages. Malgré les efforts de l'auteur, ils n'ont jamais pris vie à mes yeux, je les ai trouvés très plats et jamais attachants.
🌿 Un ensemble de qualité, un roman qui plaira certainement à certains, mais qui m'a paru très fade et d'une construction très incertaine, improbable.
🌿 si vous l'avez lu, ou si vous avez envie de le lire, n'hésitez pas à m'en parler !

Who else is ready for Fall reads? 🍁🍂📖
Regram from @bookbriefs: Tis the season for creepy reads...and I love it! .

.
One of the things that I love about the start of fall, is the release of horror and spooky reads and The Family Plot by Cherie priest look awesome!!! .

Thank you for this awesome #bookmail @torbooks! .

"The family plot is a haunted house story for the ages-atmospheric, scary, and strange, with a modern gothic sensibility to keep it fresh and interesting-from Cherie Priest, a modern master of supernatural fiction."

O livro mistura literatura com HQ ..
A história é super empolgante e inteligente, ao menos no começo. Faltou algo a mais no final.

It's funny what they say about men in uniform - how people think women just can't resist 'em. Fact is, it's just great to see a man groomed, bathed, and wearing clothes that fit him. - from #CheriePriest portrait of #AlistairErskine

It's pissing it down so a rainbow seemed like a good idea 🌈 Luckily my favourite female authors combined to kind of make one.
Also, it's been ages since I did a #flipthatbook and I forgot how bloody hard it is to balance a load of heavy books in one hand and take a photo with the other!

#harpiesreadaug - Fave woman author
#grimdragon - This means war! The French resistence bits in the Labyrinth trilogy are so sad 😭

Day 12 of the #circleofbookishfriends August Photo Challenge hosted by @sadie_reads_them_all and @authormichaelreidjr is SciFi Author Saturday. .
.
I picked this one up a) because Sadie 😏b) because I read Priest's novel Maplecroft and rather liked it and c) because steampunk-zombie-airships! 😱 Yes, please. .
.
Has anyone else read this one? It looks like it's a series? Thoughts? Opinions? I'm interested. 🤔 Also, I was heavy handed with the milk in my tea this morning. 😑 Does anyone else do that and just drink it anyway? I added another tea bag. 😂

So I was partway through I Am Princess X when my husband bought the first two books of Brandon Sanderson's Stormlight Archive and forced me to read them immediately so that he would stop reading me spoilers out loud. No photo because they are blessedly on kindle and therefore not breaking my wrists with their epicness. Sorry Princess X (and the rest of my library book stack) be back soon. Ish. They're really long books.

Sorry I went AWOL yesterday. Was up early to meet a mecanich that was measuring our staircase for a lift. That sucked all my energy!
But I'm back today, and I was tagged by both @rojauspaukste and @acourtofbooksandtea to do the #girloncover tag

↬ Resenha: I Am Princess X da Cherie Priest
Nota: ★★★★★

❝Sim, é rosa. É assim que você sabe que é para mulheres.
– Eu acho que essa foi a coisa mais estúpida que eu já ouvi você dizer.❞

Quando crianças, duas amigas criaram uma princesa juntas. Libby desenhava e May criava as histórias nas quais a heroína lutava com dragões e escalava montanhas.
Um dia, Libby sofreu um acidente e morreu. Levando consigo a Princesa X.
Andando pelas ruas de Seatle, May - agora uma adolescente- nota um adesivo da Princesa X em uma janela. Dias depois, em todos os lugares.
Mas quem será que está usando a criação delas e escrevendo histórias tão reais?

∝ O livro foi traduzido pela @editoragutenberg sob o título "Ela Está Em Todo Lugar".

Eu esperava algo diferente desse livro. Algo mais infantil e ligado à fantasia, porém o enredo é muito mais complexo e envolvente.

May sempre se recusou a acreditar que Libby morreu naquele acidente. E suas suspeitas só aumentaram ao ver a Princesa X por todos os lugares na cidade. Atrás de informações, a garota descobre um site dedicado à princesa, só que com histórias diferentes das que ela escreveu. Mensagens destinadas à May.
Com ajuda de Trick, um hacker, May vai lendo os quadrinhos, seguindo as pistas e desvendando os mistérios na vida real.

Eu amei a mistura dos desenhos no meio do livro - flashbacks e histórias que estão ligadas à May; enquanto nos outros capítulos, acompanhamos a busca de May em tempo real.
Um dos meus personagens favoritos é o Trick. Não só porque ele é um hacker, mas porque ele é inteligente e peça-chave nessa busca. Além dele ter sido a única pessoa a sempre ter acreditado nas teorias da May.
Terminei o livro em menos de dois dias graças à criatividade da autora e a interatividade que ele traz.

✓ "I Am Princess X" entrou para a minha lista de favoritos do ano. Ao invés do e-book, recomendo a leitura do livro físico - que, aliás, já quero a minha cópia!



I highly recommend this book! It was just amazing and really creative. Give it a chance ❤️

Serviço da tarde: ler... Cherie Priest: "Boneshaker"

It's been ages since I did a tag. This was supposed to be #seaofbooks but is more just a random pretty pattern, it does have a boat on though! I'm #currentlyreading Dragon's Green which I started today and so far I'm enjoying it. I love Thomas' grown up books so I'm excited for her first children's fantasy. My #nextthreereads are in here too as my bookmail and most of my library reservations have finally arrived for the month.
Thanks for the tags @mythicreads @midnightvoltage @psy_kaoru & @places_and_books
#grimdragon - Book tag day.

My current read "Boneshaker" by Cherie Priest #bookstagram #steampunk #altreality #boneshaker #cheriepriest

Lectures 2017. "La muraille fait environ soixante mètres de haut, variable selon les contraintes géographiques du terrain, et quatre à six mètres d'épaisseur en moyenne. Elle entoure entièrement les quartiers touchés, soit une zone de près de cinq kilomètres carrés. C'est une merveilleuse prouesse technique. Toutefois à l'intérieur, la ville se détériore, parfaitement inanimée en dehors des rats et des corbeaux qui, si l'on en croit la rumeur, y ont élu domicile. Le gaz qui continue de suinter des murs contamine tout ce qu'il touche. Ce qui fut auparavant une métropole très active n'est plus aujourd'hui qu'une ville fantôme, entourée par les survivants réinstallé à l'extérieur. Ils vivent sur les rivages boueux et à flanc de colline, dans une "non ville" grandissante souvent surnommée les Faubourgs:c'est là qu'ils ont refait leurs vies."

Our teen winner of our "design a new book cover" did a great representation of I Am Princess X by #cheriepriest #youngadult #yalit #newbookcover

I have a Cherie Priest book in the post and three of my library reservations claim to be in transit. Annoyingly whoever is reading Fly by Night has not returned it! So this is the only part of my TBR I have in my possession 📚
