J'espère que vous allez bien. Cette semaine est ma dernière semaine de révisions/partiels, vendredi je suis en vacances ! Cette année aura été très intense, j'ai hâte d'en voir la fin, même si globalement j'ai bien apprécié mon année.
Aujourd'hui c'est le #WorldBookDay et j'ai donc décidé de vous montrer ma lecture en cours (ou plutôt une de mes lectures en cours), il s'agit de The loneliest girl in the universe de Lauren James qui est sorti l'année dernière en VO (qui n'est donc pas encore traduit). J'avais très envie de me replonger dans une lecture en anglais, parce que c'est une langue que j'aime vraiment beaucoup beaucoup, et le résumé avait l'air vraiment pas mal.
Et vous, que lisez-vous ?
Happy Friday everyone! It’s been such a beautiful few days here so I hope everyone is having a great time in the sunshine ✨
I started reading this a couple of days ago and so far I’m really enjoying it! I’m not typically a YA fan but this one is really interesting so far. The concept of it is so unique and I’m loving it! I’ll update when I’ve finished it!
Have you read this one? 💫
"On good days, which don’t come often, I love my ship and everything it represents. I thrill at the thought of seeing Earth II. There are going to be so many things there that have never been seen by human eyes before. I’ll get to study the planet using priceless, brand-new equipment that’s just waiting to be unpacked. I’ll discover things that might change the fate of humanity for ever. The Infinity is the biggest, most expensive scientific mission in history. I get to be the very first person to see the results. I’m so lucky.
On bad days, I worry about my responsibilities until my gut cramps and my head feels full of knives.
On my very worst days, I think of nothing but how vulnerable I am out here. I’m balanced on the edge of oblivion with only a fragile skin of metal separating me from the void of space."
This book was weird and amazing at the same time. I had to read it just because it happens in space, but I honestly didn't expect such an amazing story and the ending!! Everyone should read this, you get sucked in so it's a pretty quick read.
“I’ve got the half-real fear that creeps up on you in the middle of the night, making you think that there is a monster in your room.” - The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by @laurenelizjames🚀🛸
I’ve been really enjoying sci-fi reads lately and I recently flew through this wonderful book in two sittings 😊 I didn’t want to put it down, it was fast paced, the MC was intriguing, the plot was so exciting... at the turn of each page I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next 😃 Also how beautiful is the cover!!!! 😍
QOTD: Have you read any books recently that you finished really fast?
(sponsored) 🌙 best book you read in march?
hey dearies 🌞
here's my march wrap up in front of my gorgeous new pillow by @mindfuelthinking, isn't it just beautiful? 😻
I am still in a reading slump but I read three pretty good books in march and I REALLY plan on reading more during the next months... as soon as school slows down a little. So here are the books I read last month; ➴
🌼 Illuminae by @amiekaufmanauthor & @misterkristoff; 4.5/5: amazing new structure, great suspense, the setting, AIDAN, I loved it and can't wait for the sequel!
🌼 The loneliest girl in the universe by @laurenjames; 4/5: THE PROTAGONIST'S NAME IS ROMY!!! I really enjoyed the book and THAT PLOT TWIST.
🌼 the sun and her flowers by @rupikaur_; 3.5/5: I loved milk and honey but this one didn't quite fullfill my expectations. Yet there were some poems that deeply touched my heart once again.
Have a lovely day dearies 💓

I really enjoyed this book, it only took a few hours to read and i couldn’t put it down! It was a quick and easy read, and I wasn’t expecting the ending! I kind of liked the ending, I kind of didn’t, but I get why it ended as it did! I’d definitely recommend that you read this book, I really enjoyed it!

• The Loneliest Girl In The Universe - Lauren James •
Can you fall in love with someone you’ve never met, never even spoken to - someone who is light years away?
Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew member on a spaceship bound for a new planet. She is the loneliest girl in the universe, until she hears that a second spaceship has launched from Earth, with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.
Their only communication is via email, and the messages take months to transmit, yet Romy finds herself falling in love. But what does she really know about J? And what to the strange new messages from Earth mean? Sometimes, there’s something worse than being alone...
"Love take so much energy, and it just leads to pain. I think it's probably best for people to be self-sufficient. If I was strong enough to be independent, then I wouldn't be so desperately lonely. I'm sure of it." 📖 The Loneliest Girl In The Universe by Lauren James -
I love Sci-fi and I love YA. This has both, and I couldn't be any happier that when I finished it, I got that feeling where I feel satisfied but also want more of it. Like, now what am I suppose to do with my life?
I was so involved with the main character, Romy Silvers! She was born in outer space, I don't think that's possible but she is alone in the universe, on a journey to the earth II.
I don’t want to spoil the story because trust me, you'd better not know anything and have your mind being blown by all those killer twists in the book. Yes, twists! In plural!
I think this is one best YAs I've read so far this year. Trust me when I say you'll love this book.
This week's #winterbookban challenge is to post a book that you keep recommending to everybody. So here are 3 of the titles I keep talking about 😄❤
Maybe you can tell that I'm a fan of science fiction, just more of the more character-driven ones. Interestingly not one of them is set in space or on distant planets. And if Stephanie Meyer didn't have that reputation for Twilight, more people would have read The Host, which imho was really great as well (and I should have added it to the list 😅). It was the book that introduced me to and made me a fan of the world of sci-fi. And it's not set in space either now that I think about it 🤔 That doesn't mean I don't enjoy a good space opera. My last 5 star read was The Loneliest Girl in the Universe 😃👌
But these three in the picture are on top of the list, with Flowers for Algernon making the no. 1 spot, Dark Matter the second, and Station Eleven the third. Although The Host might bump Station Eleven off the top three list 😄
What are some books you keep recommending to everyone?
Skräck eller sorg? Lite både och, varvat med fandom skulle jag säga.
Romy är född på rymdskeppet Infinity och vid sexton års ålder är hon den enda som finns kvar. I glimtar får vi veta vilka fruktansvärda händelser som ledde till de andras död och hur Romy från elva års ålder klarat sig själv. Romy är per definition den ensammaste flickan i universum. Tills hon börjar få meddelanden från J, den enda besättningen på skeppet Eternity som skickats från jorden för att göra henne sällskap på den nya hemplaneten. Meddelandena är från början i lika mycket ofas som Romys kontakt med Nasa varit, men för varje dag kommer de närmare varandra i tid i takt med att Eternity också närmar sig. När bara veckor återstår innan Eternity kommer ikapp Infinity upptäcker Romy att J inte är den han utger sig för att vara.
Oerhört spännande! Samtidigt som berättelsen är så otroligt sorglig, kan jag inte låta bli att sträckläsa för att komma närmare ögonblicket när de två skeppen ska mötas.
Riktigt bra science fiction med en trovärdighet i detaljerna som ger det där lilla extra.

Rating it ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ /5

UNEXPECTED. Truly amazing how Lauren James wrote the science fiction part of this story and was still able to tell us a story about a teenager - a lonely girl, who’s never had contact with anyone that isn’t related to her and so she becomes obsessed with fiction, fantasizes about everything because that’s all she has.
Loved the way the author dealed with this traumatized character and how everything that happens never once occurred to my mind.
The ending was great, though of course I wish I had gotten more about what happens next (but don’t I always?).
It took me by surprise and I love when a book does that to me.
Easy read, addicting and amazing. You get romance, contemporary, sci-fi and action all at once. GO GET IT.

✨”The loneliest girl in the universe” de Lauren James ✨
Cette lecture m’a fait l’effet d’une montagne russe 🤗 J’étais totalement dedans au début, puis j’ai commencé à trouvé ça un peu nian-nian et je sentais venir la déception...mais c’était sans compter la fin époustouflante et totalement inattendue 😳
Must read 😌

Il vous tente? ☺️
Résumé : “Romy Silvers is the only surviving crew-member of a spaceship travelling to a new planet, on a mission to establish a second home for humanity amongst the stars. Alone in space, she is the loneliest girl in the universe until she hears about a new ship which has launched from Earth – with a single passenger on board. A boy called J.
Their only communication with each other is via email – and due to the distance between them, their messages take months to transmit across space. And yet Romy finds herself falling in love.
But what does Romy really know about J? And what do the mysterious messages which have started arriving from Earth really mean?”
"Love takes so much energy, and it just leads to pain. I think it's probably best for people to be self-sufficient. If I was strong enough to be independent, then I wouldn't be so desperately lonely. I'm sure of it" - Lauren James, TLGOTU.
Il pleut chez moi, et puisque je ne sais pas quoi faire... Et bien je lis. Le tome 14 de la Confrérie de la Dague Noire est en train de m'achever. Si je ne poste plus pendant plusieurs jours, appelez une ambulance, parce que ce n'est pas bon signe.
J'essaye désespérément de vous faire un article sur Smoke de Dan Vyleta, livre que j'ai lu avec la jolie Clara du compte @thebookwormofnotredame (❤️) mais que, malheureusement, j'ai abandonné. Je vais donc tenter de regrouper les raisons pour vous en faire quelque chose de concret.
Le livre sur la photo est un de mes coups de cœur de 2017: the Loneliest Girl on the universe de Lauren James 🌠
Sinon, dites moi tout, que lisez-vous en ce moment ?
So I recently started a WordPress blog (see bio!), and naturally instead of doing work last night, I decided to write a Top 5 2017 YA Roundup (try saying that quickly 😂), so please click and have a read my quick ramble reviews of 5 fabulous books!!
The Loneliest Girl in the Universe by Lauren James is up there in that list - I described it as the mother of all sci-fi YA, purely because it utterly blew my mind when I read it last year. If you haven't given it a read yet, DO IT. 🖤 (And prepare to read at a speed you've never read before.)
