    Book 1: Aurora Rising by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff.

    Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5

    The year is 2380 and Tyler Jones, a star pupil misses his graduation and ends up with a group of dregs who nobody wants in their Legion. They are ready for their first task as a Legion but our Squad 312 unexpectedly end up becoming involved in an ancient battle. The fate of the entire galaxy is in their hands and their only hope is Aurora, a girl whom Tyler rescues from interdimensional space, a girl who should have been dead two centuries ago.

    Book 2: Aurora Burning by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff.

    Rating: 🌟🌟🌟🌟.5/5

    🚨 SPOILER FOR BOOK 1: AURORA RISING 🚨

    Our Squad 312 now know what they are against. Ra'haam is rising and our squad needs to give their best to save the galaxy. Aurora and the Squad try to solve the mystery of her past. Aurora tries to control her power while also trying to prevent the end of the world. But saving the galaxy comes with lots of shocking revelations, betrayal and sacrifices. "They are not going down without a fight. We hope."

    I thoroughly enjoyed both the books. It was funny and captivating with a strong plot and oh so many shocking revelations. And OH MY GOD THE CLIFFHANGER AT THE END. 😱😱😱 I cannot even guess what is going to happen next. I am dying to read the third part. 😢😢 Every character is flawed and perfect at the same time. 🌻 The way they connect with one another and become a family is what I loved the most. I can't wait to read the last one "Aurora's End".

    Full Disclosure by Camryn Garrett

    My Rating: 9/10

    Simone is HIV-positive - and positive HIV won't define her. She also knows that celibacy is the best way to stay safe. Enter Miles Austin: intelligent, funny and way too sexy for Simone to resist. But her classmates don't know that she's HIV-positive - and what is the truth worth in the hands of the wrong person?

    Even now we don’t talk enough about HIV and the effects it can have, but this book takes a look at the realities of living with HIV in today’s world. It also deals with the doubts we can have when coming to terms with our sexuality, and of first love, and the complexities of family. Its heart warming and the main character - Simone - is so relatable it hurts. She’s messy and brilliant and you can’t help but root for her.

    If you love books with:

    - some good lgbtq+ representation 🏳️‍🌈

    - musicals

    - cute romances

    Then Full Disclosure is a must read.

    Critique: Idéalis - À la lueur d'une étoile inconnue (Tome 1)

    Auteur: Christopher Paolini

    Maison d’édition: Bayard

    Résumé: Dans le futur, les hommes ont colonisé d'autres planètes du système solaire. Au cours d'une mission, la xénobiologiste Kira Navarez découvre un organisme inconnu, une mystérieuse poussière noire qui se propage sur son corps et lui confère une force phénoménale. Mais alors que l'humanité vient d'entrer en guerre contre les extraterrestres, cette exocombinaison prend peu à peu le contrôle sur elle.

    -----

    J’ai retardé la lecture de ce roman parce que je suis tombée sur quelques critiques du livre qui faisaient état de certaines longueurs dans l’histoire. Je crois qu’on sait tous depuis le temps que je ne suis pas une fan de longueurs. Mais... Pour faire plaisir à S qui était ravi que je lise enfin un livre de science-fiction pour ados, voici ma critique!

    Je ne suis pas une grande connaissante des codes du science-fiction, mais j’ai été agréablement surprise par ma lecture. Est-ce qu’il y avait des longueurs? Oui, il y en avait quelques unes, mais Paolini a réussi à garder mon intérêt en parlant du xéno. On apprend ses propriétés au fil des pages et le mystère nous tient en haleine. On en apprend aussi plus sur les autres formes de vie qui existent en parallèle de la civilisation humaine. Les Wranui m’intéressaient beaucoup, surtout que Paolini a réussi à créer une espèce d’alien intéressante.

    J’ai trouvé Kira très humaine et authentique dans ses doutes. Mature malgré les pertes qu’elle a subi, j’ai adoré sa détermination. Simple exobiologiste, elle est en voie de devenir une belle héroïne. Les personnages secondaires étaient un peu trop “de passage” jusqu’à ce qu’on tombe sur l’équipage du Hélix. À ce moment-là ils ont commencé à prendre plus de forme. J’ai particulièrement aimé Falconi par son caractère calme et composé et les deux enthropistes pour leur amour du savoir.

    Quelques termes techniques de science qui m’ont parfois passé par dessus la tête, mais le lexique à la fin du livre m’a aidé à bien me situer. Je tiens quand même à dire que ce livre n’est pas pour tout le monde. Parfois complexe, avec des considérations philosophiques et des termes très technique, il faut savoir s’accrocher pour le savourer pleinement. En ce qui me concerne, j’ai été heureuse de le découvrir!

    Note finale: 8/10

    How Reading Fiction Can Help Your Mind:

    By reading literary fiction, it allows the mind to challenge itself. It lets a person to connect with the fictional characters as well as the story; the reader can become more empathetic towards someone else as well.

    Being challenged as a reader is important for the mind, so the reader can constantly learn. Reading allows someone to form a connection with a character and because of this, it allows you to be challenged by literary devices. When you’re reading, the brain is constantly evolving since it allows your brain to expand your own knowledge.

    Fictional literature has a way of touching the real world of readers. It can leave an imprint on the readers’ hearts. It also improves the human mind to interpret real life situations.

    Fiction is often seen as a form of escapism, a way for readers to avoid the real world. But it actually improves the readers ability to understand not only social skills, but emotional ones as well.

    Using fictional books as a way to escape when the reader is in a state of stress or doubt helps the mind to relax.

    “Có một điều luôn luôn ám ảnh tôi, đó là lòng chung thủy. Trải qua những cuộc bể dâu của cuộc sống, tôi thấy niềm tin về lòng chung thủy đã làm thành một mùa băng rã trong tôi.

    Có thể một ngày nào đó tôi không còn tồn tại giữa cuộc sinh tồn này nhưng tôi vẫn ước mơ một lòng chung thủy tuyệt đối.”

    (Trịnh Công Sơn)

    Kristen and Josh get into a fender bender with one another. After that happens, she goes over to her friends house to help with the wedding and runs into Josh again. From there a friendship is born, but both are attracted to one another. The problem is, Kristen has a boyfriend who is enlisted in the military and should be coming home soon. Will she stay with him or be with Josh?

    First of all, I really liked that Kristen had problems with her periods and could possibly have infertility. I liked that Josh did not shy away from anything period related. I liked that there was no cheating and that there was a healthy way for the romance to actually happen. I didn’t like that the road block was that Kristen felt like she couldn’t be with Josh because he wanted kids and she couldn’t. She would be very stubborn and it was irritating. Overall I really enjoyed the book and I so want to give a warning that this book has some heavy tones towards the ending.

    I will prove to everyone that the world won’t turn to ash or spin out of control or swallowed alive by a black hole. But someone has to man up first to get this ball rolling.

    Title: The Drowning Kind

    Author: Jennifer McMahon

    It really enjoyed this book! It was the perfect mix of suspense, drama, and paranormal.

    Jax and Lexie are sisters with a rocky relationship. After ignoring several calls from Lexie, Jax learns that Lexie has drowned in the pool that once belonged to their grandmother, but there is more to the story of this pool and the property it sits on. Through research left behind by Lexie and through her own research, Jax discovers the dark history of the natural springs that one healed so many people. As Jax’s grandmother always said, “The water gives and the water takes” but how much more can it take from her family?

    Overall, this was a fantastic story, and I was surprised at every turn of the page. If you’re looking for a suspenseful read that will keep you on your toes and begging for more, this is definitely it!

    *I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
