 Celeana Sardothien is the most known person in Erilea. Her occupation? A notorious assassin. Her age? Eighteen. And her present status? A prisoner in the worst place anybody could think of. She thought she was going to die in that place until one day, Dorian DeHavilliard, Adarlan’s prince and future king and Chaol Westfall, Captain of the Guards visit and offer her to be the king’s Champion, a trustworthy warrior that will fight on the king’s side. After servicing for four years, she will be free again. 

She finds the offer quite tempting. How couldn’t she? And so, they start the journey back to the glass and stone palace. There is a but though. In order to become the king’s Champion, she must compete with thieves, assassins and a variety of criminals. Piece of cake for Celeana or Lady Lillian better, because nobody in the palace wants to know that the notorious assassin is just seventeen years old.

Review: Origin by Jessica Khoury


Meet Pia. No last name and isolated from the world, which is the entire globe, except for a small village, full of all kinds of scientists, called Little Cam. This facility is located in the Amazon jungle (she doesn't even know that). Did I mention she's immortal? Maybe not. She's the first of her kind. A five-generation work that finally sees the light. She can't bleed, she's immune to any kind of disease somebody could think of and she has an eternity to live.

Book Recommendation: The Sea Breeze series

                                                          Breathe (Sea Breeze #1)

Goodreads synopsis:

Sadie White's summer job isn't going to be on the beach life-guarding or working at rental booths like most kids her age. With her single mother's increasing pregnancy and refusal to work, Sadie has to take over her mother's job as a domestic servant for one of the wealthy summer families on a nearby island.
When the family arrives at their summer getaway, Sadie is surprised to learn that the owner of the house is Jax Stone, one of the hottest teen rockers in the world. If Sadie hadn't spent her life raising her mother and taking care of the house she might have been normal enough to be excited about working for a rock star.

Even though Sadie isn't impressed by Jax's fame, he is drawn to her. Everything about Sadie fascinates Jax but he fights his attraction. Relationships never work in his world and as badly as he wants Sadie, he believes she deserves more. By the end of the summer, Jax discovers he can't breathe without Sadie.

Review: Wander Dust (The Seraphina Parrish Trilogy #1) by Michelle Warren



This is the second book about time travelling or better wandering that I read and I have to say it is a book worth reading. The story’s protagonist is Seraphina or Sera Parrish who’s living with her father. Her mother, Eliza, is believed to be dead but we’ll talk about it later. Now, back to Sera. After moving to cities like New York, Rome, Boston and Portland because of her father’s secret government job, they finally settle in Miami Beach. Everything seems good. She has a best friend, Beth and is the singer in a band. But all that changes when one day she actually wanders twenty years in the past in front of what looks like a school. When she’s back from the past and she’s sent to the nurse’s office, her father decides it’s better for her to go and live with her Aunt Mona in Chicago.
