The Art of Losing by Lizzy Mason
On one terrible night, 17-year-old Harley Langston’s life changes forever. At a party she discovers her younger sister, Audrey, hooking up with her boyfriend, Mike—and she abandons them both in a rage. When Mike drunkenly attempts to drive Audrey home, he crashes and Audrey ends up in a coma. Now Harley is left with guilt, grief, pain and the undeniable truth that her ex-boyfriend (who is relatively unscathed) has a drinking problem. So it’s a surprise that she finds herself reconnecting with Raf, a neighbor and childhood friend who’s recently out of rehab and still wrestling with his own demons. At first Harley doesn’t want to get too close to him. But as Audrey awakens and slowly recovers, Raf starts to show Harley a path forward that she never would have believed possible—one guided by honesty, forgiveness, and redemption.
I’m currently reading an ARC from this book, and I just started with it, so I still don’t have any opinion. The synopsis tell you a little about what the book is about, and for that as well as for the little I’ve read, I think this will be a book about learning, growth and acceptance, and possibly be quite sentimental as it touches very sensitive issues such as betrayal, cheating and addictions. We’ll see how it goes, it will be an interesting journey

Finally! I’ve finish my re-reading of this geat beautiful book, takes me a little more time than I thought, but still enjoyed it.
I share many of the same feelings as when I read it for the first time, 3 years ago, but some have changed. This time I felt closer to the characters and more committed to their personal stories especially with Jesper, whom I adore. Kaz and Inej are still the best in the world and I love them, but this time I also appreciated much more the relationship between Nina and Inej I think their scenes together are INCREDIBLE. There’s a lot of girl power there and I love it.
The pace is quite slow at the beginning, just as I remembered it, but then it gets better and better, so I enjoyed it.
I’ll tell you more about my thoughts on my re-reading in my Wrap Up, at the end of the month

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2) by Holly Black
You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.
The first lesson is to make yourself strong.
After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.
When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.
I think it’s about time I read The Wicked King, the waiting for it made me crazy and now that I have it in my hands, I’m terrified to read it lol. OMG tell me you feel me!.
Also I want to read this before I start in my re-reading state, because then, once I’m there, I’ll not be out for a while lol, I’m determined to re-read the trilogy of Shadow and Bone, so seemed a good idea to read this amazing book before I start with that.
Prepare yourself for a long review because I don’t think I can control my emotions!
