Metaltown

The rules of Metaltown are simple: work hard, keep your head down, and watch your back. You look out for number one, and no one knows that better than Ty. She’s been surviving on the factory line as long she can remember. But now Ty has Colin. She’s no longer alone; it’s the two of them against the world. That’s something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her. Until it does.
Lena’s future depends on her family’s factory, a beast that demands a ruthless master, and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father. But when a chance encounter with Colin, a dreamer despite his circumstances, exposes Lena to the consequences of her actions, she’ll risk everything to do what’s right.
In Lena, Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder. Colin sees something more. In a world of disease and war, tragedy and betrayal, allies and enemies, all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rules.
An enthralling story of friendship and rebellion, Metaltown will have you believing in the power of hope.

Oliver Twist


‘Please, sir, I want some more.’
Oliver Twist is one of Dickens’ most popular novels, with many famous film, television and musical adaptations. It tells the story of the orphaned Oliver who is brought up in a harsh workhouse, then initiated into the criminal world of Fagin and rescued by a loving family. This is a classic story of good against evil, packed with humour and pathos, drama and suspense, and peopled with some of Dickens’ most memorable characters.

Bilan octobre 2016

Et encore un mois qui se termine, le temps passe vite. Mais cette fois, en cette fin de mois, je suis plutôt fière de moi, j'ai bien lu et bien écris. Voyons voir maintenant en comparant avec les objectifs du mois, en espèrant qu'ils soient pratiquement tous en bleus :
-au moins une lecture en anglais (j'aimerais notamment beaucoup lire Oliver Twist de Charles Dickens)
-faire un coloriage par semaine (parce que je suis une fanadingue de coloriage en ce moment)
-écrire un chapitre de La Fille de la légende (parce que je n'ai pas avancé le mois dernier)
-écrire une nouvelle
-lire au moins cinq livres pour revenir à une moyenne de lecture normale avant que je n'arrive en Angleterre
-faire un article différent, qui n'est pas une chronique un bilan des nouveautés ou un unboxing (en préparation pour le moment)
