This Is How You Lose The Time War by Amal El - Mohtar and Max Gladstone
An excellent read. By far one of my favourite novels which I will be enthused to share. It is beautiful and intelligently written. It is poetic and left me pretty breathless.

Writing Prompt • Forest Fire 🔥
Her breath sounds like thunder in her ears, rhythmic and heavy as her footfalls collide with the forest floor. Bushes and brush reach out to clutch her skin as she pushes through, always forward, never looking back. She knew as the smoke billowed behind her that there was nothing left. Heat reaches her skin far past where she thought it could, and it keeps her moving even though all she wants to do is rest, just for a moment. She knows though, that if she stops now, that will be it. She would curl in on herself and let go, let the flames wrap around her, and make her just another piece of the forest floor. She yells out as she pushes her body harder. It’s not just the blaze, but his voice, calling her name. She can still hear him over the deafening sound of her heartbeat in her ears, her unsteady steps, and the fierce roar of the fire. She needs to keep moving. The other side of this is clear air, its safety, but most of all, its revenge.

A Richard Marx CD plays on the stereo, a bag from Zabar’s loaded with sourdough onion bagels and spices sits on the kitchen table while I grind bone and fat and flesh into patties, and though it does sporadically penetrate how unacceptable some of what I’m doing actually is, I just remind myself that this thing, this girl, this meat, is nothing, is shit, and along with a Xanax (which I am now taking half-hourly) this thought momentarily calms me and then I’m humming, humming the theme to a show I watched often as a child—The Jetsons? The Banana Splits? Scooby Doo? Sigmund and the Sea Monsters? I’m remembering the song, the melody, even the key it was sung in, but not the show.

Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Corayne is a pirate’s daughter and wants to go on adventure with her mother. She believes she can do a lot of good for her mother and her mother’s crew, but her mother wants her to stay where she is to be safe. She is found by an immortal and an assassin. Soon later they find themselves with a sorceress, a bounty hunter, and a squire. Corayne is the last of an ancient line and the rag tag team are finding away to save their realm before the Queen and the Prince Consort destroy it.
I have read Red Queen, Glass Sword, and a bit of King’s Cage (I really need to finish it) before I read Realm Breaker, so I am familiar with Victoria Aveyard’s work. I loved this book more than the Red Queen series and I feel like this series is going to be epic. This book is described as a High Fantasy compared to her other work. I will admit this book has a slower pace and I typically don’t like slow books, but I still enjoyed it. I love the world building and the history of all the places we see the characters go. I love all the point of views and I’m use to a ton of point of views with all the adult fantasy I’ve been reading. My favorite character is Sorasa and she is totally a bad ass assassin. I love the villain romance between Erida and Taristan and I totally want to see more of them and their evil demise. Lastly, the banter between Sorasa and Dom was just great. Totally pick up this book!

Critique: Point de fuite
Tumblr media
Auteur: Marie Colot & Nancy Guilbert
Maison d’édition: Gulf Stream
Résumé: Mona, lycéenne passionnée par le dessin, avait tout pour être heureuse mais, progressivement, son compagnon l'a isolée et dénigrée, faisant d'elle une coquille vide. Autour d'elle pourtant, des personnes bienveillantes tentent de la sauver. Un roman à quatre mains dénonçant les violences faites aux femmes.
-----
“Au Canada, 160 femmes sont mortes des suites d’un acte violent en 2020, ce qui correspond à une femme tuée tous les deux jours et demi.” Les féminicides, les actes de violence envers les femmes sont un sujets très actuels. Lorsque je suis tombée sur ce roman, j’ai saisi ma chance d’en apprendre plus sur la violence fait aux femmes, mais surtout sur la violence conjuguale. Voici ma critique!
J’avais envie de hurler. J’avais envie de prendre les armes et de partir en guerre pour protéger Mona. La belle, la douce, la lumineuse Mona. Mais ce n’est pas mon histoire. C’est celle de Mona qui tombe sous l’emprise d’Ycare, le beau, le doux, celui qui lui offre un amour intense. Un amour étouffant, qui emprisonne et qui n’offre aucun espoir de s’en sortir. C’est aussi l’histoire de Cassian et de sa poésie qui offre un peu de réconfort, l’histoire de Marin qui voudrait tant aider, l’histoire d’Esther qui devient une alliée inattendue et l’histoire de Lya, celle qui comprend, ayant déjà vécu ce genre d’histoire.
On ne se trompera pas, le thème majeur de l’histoire c’est la violence dans le couple. Un thème difficile, actuel et qui fesse fort. Malgré tout, les deux auteures ont su m’offrir une histoire juste et réelle sans jamais tomber dans le glauque. Il y a une certaine forme de pudeur dans cette histoire, mais le malaise est persistant, efficace. J’avais envie de prendre Mona dans mes bras, de rassurer Esther, d’écouter Lya, d’assister Marin. Preuve irréfutable que les personnages ont été dépeint avec une anthenticité très tangible.
J’ai pleuré à la fin de ce roman. Je me suis identifié à certaines parties du livre. J’ai eu une pensée pour toutes ces femmes qui tombent sous l’emprise d’un homme qui promet la lune, mais qui n’offre finalement que de la douleur. C’est difficile de s’en sortir et souvent, on ne comprend pas pourquoi les victimes restent. Ce livre offre une partie de la réponse. Je le recommande avec tellement de véhémence que je le place parmi les grands de mon palmarès. À découvrir absolument!
Note finale: 11/10
