Je me mets tout doucement à la VO... [2]

Rendez-vous mis en place par Marinette, du blog Les lectures de Marinette, dans le but de s'encourager à lire en VO. Dans ce rendez-vous, je vous présenterai les lectures VO qui me font envie et qui entreront directement dans ma Wish VO. Le but est d'essayer de lire environ un livre en VO tous les 2 mois mais chacun planifie ses lectures comme il veut.

Cette fois-ci, ce sont des livres que j'ai trouvés dans les C'est lundi de Lulai, du blog Lulai lis, qui lit beaucoup en VO et qui sont tous disponibles chez Barnes & Noble :

Breathe - Sarah Crossan

The world has no air. If you want to survive, you pay to breathe. But what if you can't? And what if you think everything could be different? Three teens will leave everything they know behind in Sarah Crossan's gripping and original dystopian teen novel of danger, longing, and glimmering hope that will appeal to fans of Patrick Ness and Veronica Roth.

Covenant, book 1 : Half-Blood - Sarah Crossan

The Hematoi descend from the unions of gods and mortals, and the children of two Hematoi-pure-bloods-have godlike powers. Children of Hematoi and mortals-well, not so much. Half-bloods only have two options: become trained Sentinels who hunt and kill daimons or become servants in the homes of the pures.Seventeen-year-old Alexandria would rather risk her life fighting than waste it scrubbing toilets, but she may end up slumming it anyway. There are several rules that students at the Covenant must follow. Alex has problems with them all, but especially rule #1:Relationships between pures and halfs are forbidden.Unfortunately, she's crushing hard on the totally hot pure-blood Aiden. But falling for Aiden isn't her biggest problem—staying alive long enough to graduate the Covenant and become a Sentinel is. If she fails in her duty, she faces a future worse than death or slavery: being turned into a daimon, and being hunted by Aiden. And that would kind of suck. 

Fragments - Dan Wells

Kira Walker has found the cure for RM, but the battle for the survival of humans and Partials is just beginning. Kira has left East Meadow in a desperate search for clues to who she is. That the Partials themselves hold the cure for RM in their blood cannot be a coincidence—it must be part of a larger plan, a plan that involves Kira, a plan that could save both races. Her companions are Afa Demoux, an unhinged drifter and former employee of ParaGen, and Samm and Heron, the Partials who betrayed her and saved her life, the only ones who know her secret. But can she trust them?
Meanwhile, back on Long Island, what's left of humanity is gearing up for war with the Partials, and Marcus knows his only hope is to delay them until Kira returns. But Kira's journey will take her deep into the overgrown wasteland of postapocalyptic America, and Kira and Marcus both will discover that their greatest enemy may be one they didn't even know existed.
The second installment in the pulse-pounding Partials saga is the story of the eleventh hour of humanity's time on Earth, a journey deep into places unknown to discover the means—and even more important, a reason—for our survival.

Keeper of the Lost Cities, book 1 - Shannon Messenger

Twelve-year-old Sophie has never quite fit into her life. She’s skipped multiple grades and doesn’t really connect with the older kids at school, but she’s not comfortable with her family, either. The reason? Sophie’s a Telepath, someone who can read minds. No one knows her secret—at least, that’s what she thinks…
But the day Sophie meets Fitz, a mysterious (and adorable) boy, she learns she’s not alone. He’s a Telepath too, and it turns out the reason she has never felt at home is that, well…she isn’t. Fitz opens Sophie’s eyes to a shocking truth, and she is forced to leave behind her family for a new life in a place that is vastly different from what she has ever known.
But Sophie still has secrets, and they’re buried deep in her memory for good reason: The answers are dangerous and in high-demand. What is her true identity, and why was she hidden among humans? The truth could mean life or death—and time is running out.

Lux, book 1 : Obsidian - Jennifer L Armentrout

Starting over sucks.
When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring.... until I spotted my hot neighbor, with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up.
And then he opened his mouth.
Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens.
The hot alien living next door marks me.
You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and Daemon’s touch has me lit up like the Vegas Strip. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades.
If I don't kill him first, that is.

Mila 2.0, book 1 - Debra Driza

Mila was living with her mother in a small Minnesota town when she discovered she was also living a lie.
She was never meant to learn the truth about her identity. She was never supposed to remember the past—that she was built in a computer science lab and programmed to do things real people would never do.
Now she has no choice but to run—from the dangerous operatives who want her terminated because she knows too much, and from a mysterious group that wants to capture her alive and unlock her advanced technology.
Evading her enemies won't help Mila escape the cruel reality of what she is and cope with everything she has had to leave behind. However, what she's becoming is beyond anyone's imagination, including her own, and that just might save her life.
A compulsively readable sci-fi thriller, Mila 2.0 is Debra Driza's bold debut and the first book in an action-filled, Bourne Identity–style trilogy.

Désolée pour ce post un peu long mais je voulais partager ces découvertes avec vous qui font toutes très, très envie !

7 commentaires :

  1. Ah les livres en VO, ce n'est pas évident.
    C'est vrai que les couvertures sont magnifiques.
    Je te souhaite de bonnes lectures, bisous :)

  2. Beaucoup de sagas en tout cas! Si tu les lis, ça te motivera peut-être à lire la suite en VO aussi! :)
    Bon courage!

  3. C'est fou comme les livres VO ont de belles couvertures <3

    1. Je sais, on dirait des petits gâteaux qu'on a envie de manger héhé

  4. Lire en VO n'est pas forcément facile au début mais avec un peu de volonté, on s'améliore très très très vite (en lecture, mais aussi en rédaction. La syntaxe vient toute seule, au bout d'un moment). Depuis que j'ai commencé la VO (ça remonte à un moment quand même), je n'ai jamais arrêté. Genre, je suis capable de ne pas lire un bouquin anglophone du tout si je ne le trouve pas en VO :P Je suis un peu une maniaque de la VO ^^
    En tout cas, je viens de découvrir ton blog et je le trouve super bien fait! Franchement, j'adore! Tes chroniques sont très visuelles. Chapeau! :)


Un petit commentaire, ça fait toujours plaisir ♥♥
