[sticky post] My to-be-read list of doom...

Here is the list of all the books I want to read or re-read (because, for most of them, I read those so long ago that I don't remember them at all). I'll try to make a dent in it, but I'm easily distracted by new authors I like or by a book that caught my eye in the library.

Series I want to finishCollapse )

Books I want to re-readCollapse )

Books I want to readCollapse )

This list is by no means complete, I'll expand it when I think of more books I want to read.

Hodiday Season

I wish you all a very merry Christmas, and a happy New Year in advance. Let's hope 2016 is better than 2015 concerning terrorrists attacks (I live in France : two in one year were two too many). I also hope you all a wonderful year, with all the habitual (but heartfelt) wishes : health for you and your loved ones, enough money to not lack anything. I also hope 2016 is filled with reading (fanfics or published books) and writing.

Remember the positivity meme? I loved it, and since I found a poem that made me happy, I decided to share it. It's a French poem, and I found an English translation somewhere online. Have both versions!

Harry Potter Rec : Wizards IN SPACE!

OK, I read this fic yesterday and I was wow-ed! It's a non-linear future fic and it works.

Fandom : Harry Potter
Title : Children of the Light
Author : lomonaaeren
Rating : Mature
Pairing : Harry/Draco
Warnings : graphic violence
Word Count : about 12,000
Summary : Wizarding children of the future learn about the Dark Lords that led up to the Great Dark Lord. They learn about the House-Elf War that was fought against the Great Dark Lord and almost destroyed the foundations of society, but ended with freedom and peace and an escape to the stars. But they don’t learn about Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter. Those names have been expunged from the record.

I'm on the third volume of Divergent by Veronica Roth and the damn plot doesn't make sense! The faulty worldbuilding is pulling me out of the story again and again, but I keep on reading, hoping things will be clear soon. At least, it's keeping me reading ...
