Summary :

    Rosie is a hen and she has decided to walk. However, a fox is hangry and follow her.

Will he eat her ?


Opinion :

    I had the surprise to discover in my English exam, a question about an picture book and all the story of this little book. That's way, I decided to write a chronicle about it ! Firstly, I really like it ! The story is funny and sympathic and funny and funny ! Yes, I know I repet myself, but it's exactly that ! I mean, if I have to say only one thing, it will be that !


     I was stressed by my exam, but when I read it, I laughed ! And I wasn't alone ! I'm sure children will enjoy it. I mean, it's fresh ! It's exactly what we want to read, with a subject like that ! Desasters arrive always to bad guys ! But what I really love, is the fact that Rosie didn't notice anything ! She is totally in her world and never thought to danger ! Her attitude is really good !


A amazing and funny little story !!

Summary :

    Since she has gone, Ana is desesperated. She missed Christian, his fifty shades of fucked-up. Only one week later, they see each other : he want her to come back. He is ready for all sacrifies : no rules, just more, with her.

Will she accept ? Can it work ?


Opinion :

    I just love this saga ! I want to read this second book for 2 long months, but I always had something more pressing to read before. Finally, I decided to begin it, even if it doesn't correspond to any challenge. I began it. And even if, it took me one week to read it, I have a big crush ! It's just wonderful ! Usally, I only read 30 or 40 pages, but it was so captivating that I read 120 per day ! It's huge !


    I love this book, but I feel like I prefer the novel in French. Maybe just because I understand more, or because I already know the story now. I did't find the suspens that I have when I read it in French... But, pages turns themselves alone, so... I mean, the surprise was passed, but the interest was still here ! It's a real pleasure to meet them again !


    You know that I love Christian and Ana ! I mean, they are very cute ! I know that Christian could be a bastard, but for he is jus like a lost little boy... He only does, what he know. I love his love for Ana, and the way whose he proves it. Ana is sympathic too. The others are good too : Elena, Leila and Jack bring much to the story ! I love Dr Flinn too ! He is very funny...


     The end is very interesting ! I means the last page is just Wahou ! Actually, the last chapter is Wahou !!! I knew what will happen, but the effect on me was exactly the same than the first time ! I want to read the following book ! I already wanted it before, but... The suspens is here ! I want to know what will happen ! I don't know if I will read it in French or in English before, but I look forward !


A big crush, but maybe less strong than for in French...

Well, I'm shit, really... I swallow. "If I told you I was fine, I'd be lying."
He inhales sharply. "Me, too," he murmurs and reaches over and clasps my hand. "I miss you," he adds.
Oh no. Skin against skin.
"Christian, I-"
"Ana, please. We need to talk."
I'm going to cry. No. "Christian, I... please... I've cry so much," I whisper, trying to keep my emotions in check.
"Oh, baby, no." He tugs my hand, and before I know it I'm on his lap. He has his arls around me, and his nose is in my hair. "I've missed you so much, Anastasia," he breathes.

Summary :

     When she was 10, Fanny Price moved from her parents to her uncle's house. At Mansfield Park, her cousins and aunts showed her by all ways that she was inferior to them, except her cousin Edmund. At the beginning, she loved him like a brother, but with the time his love evolved.

    However, one day, Mansfield Park's peace was threatened with the arrival of Mr and Miss Crowford. This two seductive londoners are well decided to disrupt Betrams' life.

What will it happened ? Will Fanny be happy and loving ?


Opinion :

     I love Jane AUSTEN so I asked all her books in English for Christmas. And my mother decided to buy the most genuine cover ! For the challenge Bookineur en couleur, I searched all my blue books, and this one corresponded. I want to begin it, but I hadn't expected that it was written so small and that I took all this time to read it ! I mean, in one week, I only read 20 pages...


     I already knew the story, because I have watched the BBC film. However, it's not my favorite and I had a lot of problems to read it... More than the character size, the vocabulary is a little complicate. I mean, I don't know if it's because it was tired to read, but I didn't retain anything of what I was reading... Despite of that, I like the story. But I was a little lost, because it was not exactly as the film.


      For the characters, I'm a little desappointed. I mean, in the film, I really liked Fanny and Edmund, but here, with the point of vue wich change all the time, I cannot totally attached me to them. It's too bad ! Futhermore, it was difficult for me to understand who was speaking during the dialogues... They have none reminder, like 'said Fanny' or 'answered Edmund' and so on. Despite all of it, I like all the characters, except maybe aunt Norris or the two sisters Bertram... But I have to admit that I were quite in love of Henry !


      To be honest, I wanted to finish absolutely finish the book this evening, so in two days, I had to read more than 150 pages and it's a lot, when we thought that in 2 weeks I only read 50 pages... All of that is to say that the 2 last chapters were horrible to read... I thought about all, except what was happening ! But, comparing to the rest of the book, the end was a little quick ! It's impressive all what happen in the last chapter !


Good, but the edition is complicate to read !!

"I like your Miss Bertrams exceedingly, sister," said he, as he returned form attending them to their carriage after the said dinner visit; "they are vere elegant, agreeable girls."
"So they are indeed, and I am delighted to hear you say it. But you like Julia best."
"Oh, yes ! I like Julia best."
"But do you really ? for Miss Bertram is in general thought the handsomest."
"So I should suppose. She has the advantage in every feature, and I prefer her countenance ; but I like Julia best ; Miss Bertram is certainly the handsomest, and I have found her the most agreeable, but I shall always like Julia best, because you order me."

Summary :

     A family went to the zoo. They looked at the animals in the cage.

What have they done ?


Opinion :

     At the end of my English classeroom, my teacher has distributed a album for each of us. I have received this one. The purpose is to read it and explain the story and how we can use it in a teaching situation. Personnaly, I read it twice, because the first time, I didn't really like it. So I wanted to make sure, that I all understand before writing my chronicle.


     I don't know why, but the story remind me something, maybe I read it when I was a child... The story is not very interessant... I mean, it's good, but finally... I don't know. The story is a little bored ! Usally, I love album, but here, no. It doesn't inspire me ! I think the more important in the book are the words games and the text's irony. However, I maybe not good enough to understand them...


     I don't really like too the illustrations, neither the characters... I mean picture are rather easy. The featurces are a little rough... Personnaly, they don't are a dream for me. And it's exactly the same with the characters. They are just like a normal family... But, despite that, I don't recognize me in them. They're not very sympathic. But maybe, younger like them...


     The end is strange. I mean it's a little came totally out of field... Yet, it's announced in the summary. But after all, apart from the last page it's never discussed. I have prefered that this comparasion between human's thoughts and animal's thoughts was more present. Here, only the last picture invits to a real reflexion, actually it's my opinion...


Good but not wonderful !

Summary :

     Thomas wakes up without a memory at the center of a huge maze. With him, there are only boys. Few of them have been there for 2 years, without finding how leave. A elite, the runners search every day a exit but they also have to escape to the Grievers, the maze's monsters. Thomas knows one thing : he want to be a runner.

     However, since he was there, all change. Usaly, there are one new boy each month, but the tomorrow, a girl arrives, unconscious in the box with a strange message.

Will he be a runner ? Can they escape of that maze ? What will it change ?


Opinion :

    I saw the movie when he was in cinema and I liked it. So I decided to buy the two first books, but they stayed in my PAL Finally, my sister bought for my father the saga in English, so I decided to read it in english... After more than one year, I began it. However, I'm desappointed... It take a little less than 1 month to finish it... I had trouble to understand the vocabulary !


    The story is interesting... But the vocabulary is very difficult. I didn't understand by time what it happened ! So I didn't read a lot each day. It's tired when you don't really understant that you read. Fortunately, little by little, I entered in the story. There are suspens and I want to know what happen after, escially because I don't really remenber of the film...


    I like the characters... Thomas is brave and completely inconscious by times, but it's a good mix ! I have a crush for Chuck. He is really cute ! I'm sad for him [he was young, gently and finaly he died to save Thomas !] Newt and Minho are sympathic too. However, I didn't really like Alby and Teresa. The first one is too obtuse and arrogant. The second is... I don't know she is weird... I have trouble to identify her !


     The end is strange too... I have not all understood... especially who are them. [the people who rescue them]. I don't succeed to know if they are good or not. So, I find it's not clear... I think I will read again the first book, in French that time, before reading the following book. For the moment, I don't really desire to begin again that serie...


Good, but difficult to understand !

Thomas's mind was spinning. He was sure he'd never seen her before - but then the slightest hint of doubt crept into his mind. "I swear she doesn't look familiar at all," he said anyway. He'd had enough accusations.
"Are you- ?"
Before Newt could finish, the girl shot up into a sitting position. As she sucked in a huge breath, her eyes snapped open and she blinked, looking around at the crowd surrounding her. Alby cried out and fell backwards. Newt gasped and jumped up, stumbling away from her. Thomas didn't move, his gaze locked on the girl, frozen in fear.
Burning blue eyes darted back and forth as she took deep breaths. Her pink lips trembled as she mumbled something over and over, indecipherable. Then she spoke one sentence - her voice hollow and haunted, but clear.
"Everything is going to change."

Summary :

    Anastasia Steel, a young student, has to substitute his roomate for an interview of the famous businessman Cristian Grey. At first glance, she is charmed by this mysterious guy. But, behind his good manner, is hidden a dark and tortured side. She had never felt in love of someone and for the first time, she likes a man. They are totally different, so she tries to forget him, but at each time he comes back...

Everybody says he likes her, but is it true ? Can she trust him ?


Opinion :

     I discovered this saga with the first movie, and I bought the trilogie in frensh just few weeks later. I read the two first novel, and it was a big crush ! That's why, I decided to bought them in English with my birthday's money ! Again, I love it ! I don't understand how much I can like them... Again, it was a big BIG crush !


     I have to avoid that I was afraid during the two first chapters... I had the feeling... It was like I understood nothing. There were a lot of new words... But finally, I acclimated at writer's style, and I devoured it ! Pages after pages, I cannot stop myself ! Fortunately, I was in holiday, so I can read when I wanted...


     I knew the storie, but despite that, I felt like I discovered it again... I was fabulous ! I don't know why I like it so much... They are something... At each time, I forgot everything, and read page after page Christian and Ana's aventure ! I don't know what I can say in more... Maybe Read it ! Dispite the fact of the submission, it's especially a romance... A Beautiful love storie, between two young people who discover how they can love... In a word, all of what I love !


     Of course, I love this novel, thanks to Christian ! He is so attractive, so mysterious and so kind too... I mean, I know he is also manipulator and want to control everybody... I don't like who he is in the red Chamber of pain, but, it's impossible not seeing how much he loves her, and how much he want to their relation works... I'm on a cloud as soon as he is here... Ana is nice too. She looks like me, or maybe it's rather me who looks like her. I love his subconscience... She is really funny ! Like kate, I love how she tries to help Ana and does in contrary the opposite !


     I think it was because it's writen in English, but the scenes in the playroom are more difficult to read than in French... This is probaly because I read word by word, so when I imagine the scene I saw directly what words mean whereas in French, it's more abstrait, without forgetting, I understand the implicite or subtilities ! I love this part too, because I discover the text in a new light...


    The end is very good... I never tired of read this book and especially the end. I understand why Ana do it, but in the other end, she has exactely what she wanted... The last pages are wonderful ! I only want one thing : read the following books ! I don't know if it would be the book two or the storie told by Christian !


A big crush ! A perfection !

I push open the door and stumble through, tripping over my own feet and falling headfirst into the office.
Double crap - me and my two left feet ! I am on my hands and knees in the doorway to Mr. Grey's office, and gentle hands are around me, helping me to stand. I am so embarrassed, damn my clumsiness. I have to steel myself to glance up. Holy cow - he's so young.
"Miss Kavanagh." He extends a long-fingered hand to me once I'm upright. "I'm Christian Grey. Are you all right ? Would you like to sit ?"
So young - and attractive, very attractive. He's tall, dressed in a fine grey suit, white shirt, and black tie with unruly dark coppercolored hair and intense, bright gray eyes that regard me schrewdly. It takes a moment for me to find my voice.
"Um. Actually -" I mutter. If this guy is over thirty, then I'm a monkey's uncle. In a daze, I place my hand in his and we shake. As our fingers touch, I feel an odd exhilarating shiver run through me. I withdraw my hand hastily, embarrassed. Must be static. I blink rapidly, my eyelids matching my heart rate.

Summery :

   Since one year, Rose and Lissa survived in the human's world. Lissa is a Moroï and she was in danger. However, the academy's guardians found them and they went back to school ! High school did'nt change during their absence, it was even worse... Someone seems to scare Lissa and to know his secret.

Why did they run away ? Who is behind that bad jokes ?


Opinion :

    I love this saga and that's why when I went to Whales, I searched everywhere the first book ! I really want to read this book in English and I really loved it ! A crush ! Even if it was a little different than in my memory... I think it was 4 years ago, that I read it for the first time ! And now I grew, and I saw things differently... Despite all that, it was a big pleasure to discover it again !


    The story is very interesting and even if I already know the end, there are a kind of suspens ! I turned pages after pages without paying attention. It's strange I felt like if I read it in French and not in English. For the first time, the langage was not a boundary, but a plus ! I won't lie, there are passages, I didn't totally understand... I don't know what I can say in more... Read it as soon as I can is enough to show I want to know what will happen ! and how I passed a good time with Rose and Dimitri and Lissa too !


    There are a little thing which desapointing me : the caracter's mental... Rose and Lissa are really good, but they are too young too. I didn't remembert the futility of their acts... However, Dimitri is older and give a lot at the story, at Rose too... With him she is more adult ! I think I love him, but I know what will happen after, and that's why I don't like him so much than before !


    The end is really good ! I love it, the suspense and before all, Dimitri and Rose ! Together, they are complet, and I adore how he was affraid for her ! I think, the best it was their relation ! I hope read the second book in English too, but I also want to discover the last books... I want to know the end ! So book 2 in English or book 5 in French ?


A really good book !!

" Miss Hathaway," she hissed, "you are out of line".
" They have a bond", Dimitri's low, accented voice broke the heavy tension, and we all turned toward him. I think Kirova had forgotten he was there, but I hadn't. His presence was way too powerful to ignore. He still stood against the wall, looking like some sort of cowboy sentry in that ridiculous long coat of his. He looked at me, not Lissa, his dark eyes staring straight through me. "Rose knows what Vasilisa is feeling. Don't you ?"
I at least had the satisfaction of seeing Kirova caught off gard as she glanced between us and Dimitri. "No... that's impossible. That hasn't happened in centuries."

Summary :

    Katniss and Peeta have won the last Hunger Games, but problems doesn't stop with their victory. People of all districts think that it was not a lover's act, but a way to defy the Capital. The revolte is near. Katniss must do all she can to prove it was not a rebellion act, else all people she loves could die.

Can she convince everybody ? What President Snow can invent to controll her ?


Opinion :

    I would like to read since few months, but I haven't time. However, when I saw the last opus of the saga in cinema, I took immediatly the second novel ! I have even forgotten a LC for it ! I have not a lot of time during the week to read, but when I began this book, I didn't want to stop, so I always read one chapter each morning before classroom... 


    Read in English is not always easy, because it's tiring. However with that book, it was not the case ! It was passionated ! A big crush ! I litteraly loved it ! Even if I knew the end, the suspense was here all the time ! It hapened a lot of things which are finally surprising... I discovered again a lot of details, or indices on the real role of character [like Plutarch]. It's wonderful !


     I love the characters... I have a big crush for Peeta, but also for Katniss and Finnick. It's funny, because before I loved Gale too, but since I read the last book, or maybe since I watched the last film, I dislike him... Johanna is very good, she is sinic but all she said is true... I really want to see them again, all of them ! I have never watched, but, it's beautiful how the relation between Katniss and Peeta is built... We really saw the evolution...


    The end is very good ! I love it ! There are a lot of suspense, I want to read the next book ! Even if I already now what will it hapen ! It a very good saga I'm very touched by the events... It was like I discovered for the first time de story :) And I don't know, but I have the feeling that read in English, is better ! The text is even more exciting !


A book you have to read ! !

"After that, there was nothng to do but let you play out your little scenario. And you were pretty good, too, with the love-crazed schoolgirl bit. The people in the Capitol were quite convinced. Unfortunately, not everyone in the districts fell for your act," he says.
My face must register at least a flicker of bewilderment, because he addresses it.
"This, of course, you don't know. You have no access to information about the mood in other districts. In several of them, however, people viewed your little trick with the berries as an act of defiance, not an act of love. And if a girl from District Twelve of all places can defy the Capitol and walk away unharmed, what is to stop them from doing the same ?" he says. "What is to prevetn, say, an uprising ?"

Summary :

     Harry is ready for a fourth year in Hogwarts. This will be wonderful, because the school receive the spectucular triwizard tournament. During this competition, one student of each school, Beauxbatons, Durnstrang and Hogwards, will afront each other in three tasks. Cause of the hazzard, only student aged more seventeen years can participate to the selection. However, someone, put Harry's name in the goblet, and for the first time, there are not three but four champions...

Who wants harry to participate at the tournament ? Will he win ?


Opinion :

    I love Harry Potter's saga, so I want to read the book. To be sincere, I don't remerber reading the third book, either in French or in English, but I read it ! Since few weeks, I have taken it out of my PAL, but I waited and waited again... It's a huge book, more than 600 pages, so I thought that it was impossible to read it rapidly... In fact, I was a little affraid by the book's size !


    Finally, I decided to begin it, and at that moment, I was captivated by the story and it was impossible to stop my reading ! I turned the last page only after two days ! I passed my day to read it ! The suspens is everywhere ! Even I watched the film ten or twenty times, I wanted to know what happened... Especially, that the tasks were not totally the same...


    In one hand, I loved it ! It was a real crush ! but in the other hand, I prefered the movie ! In the book, there are suspens, however, during the tasks, particularly, I thought it was too easy and too quickly... i was a little desapointed, and finally upset ! Harry suceed without really searching or fear... For the dragon, he called immediatly his broom, for the lake, he ate the plant... for the maze, it was like he arrived direct to the cup. No real suspens... It's too bad !


     Fortunately, I loved characters ! Harry is really attaching, like Ron and Hermony... By the way, I learnt that we prenunce his name "Her-mi-o-ni" ! The scene is really good ! Ron acted a little like a kid, but he was just jealous... My favorite character is Sirius Black ! I have the impression, that Harry and him was a true family ! He takes care of him, it's cute... And I didn't feel that during movies...


    The end is very good... But I wanted something more spectacular... It was a new time, too quick ! [Cedric and Harry arrived and Paf Cedric was killed...]. And Harry is a little too pacive... He did nothing, he endured... Even after, he just talked... I was suprised by Snape ! In book, he looks really sympathic and he wants to help Harry and Dumbledor ! I will read the following books and watch again the movies !


A crush, but I prefer the movie !!!

Opinions :

    Since I was a child, I love this story... I watched the movie one hundred times, and I rencently discover a former serie about it... This two versions have a lot of differences, and I want to know what is the real story. That's why, I asked it for Christmas... I received in French, but during my holliday in Wales, I found it in English, so I bought it... I began with the original text, because it was a challenge for me, and I think it's better in original way, with no traduction to modificate it.


    I will be sincere : it's a crush ! I loved it ! I'm sure, that my familly will laugh, but this story is amazing and wonderful ! I know the story by heart, however there are, in spite of that, a kind of suspens... At all moment, I wanted to read the following chapter. I stopped my reading each night, just because I was tired and that read in English is tiring... For a nineteen century's book, I think there are a lot of events and unexpected developments...


    I'm fond of the characters... except with Wickham, and a little Lydia, too. They are not responsable and sensible ! I cannot bear them ! On the other side, Elizabeth, Darcy, Jane and Bingley are fanstatic ! I love their kindness and their mentality ! They are sincere to the others, and themselves. The rest of the familly is a little... How say that ? They wanted money, especially the mother and little sisters, so their attitude is not always elegant... Same thing for the father, even if, with him, it's more his reflections about daughter's stupidity... It's not very pleasant to read it...


    The end is very very good ! I love end like this... It conclude wonderfully the story, because we have a overview of their life after... I have only one regret, that we don't have wedding's account... What a shame ! But, after that, the description of the familly's feelings and their life are complete and it's enough... I will read the french version, to be really sure I have all understanding, but finally the vocabulary is enough easy...


     I have also a little remark to do. It's about the introduction in my edition. A historian did a commentary about this novel and explained the story revealing what happended. I think it's a pity to tell the different events at the beginning of the book. Even if, that's a introduction, it would be at the end of the roman, after be sure that every body knows the story...


A big crush for this classic !

Mr. Bingley was good-looking and gentlemanlike ; he had a pleasant countenance, and easy, unaffected manners. His sisters were fine women, with an air of decided fashion. His brother-in-law, Mr. Hurst, merely looked the gentleman ; but his friend Mr. Darcy soon drew the attention of the by his fine, tall person, handsome features, noble mein ; and the report which in general circulation within five minutes after his entrance, of his having ten thousand a year. The gentlemen pronounced him to be a fine figure of a man, the ladies declared he was much handsomer than Mr. Bingley, and he was looked at with great admiration for about half the evening, till his manners gave a disgust which turned the tide of his popularity ; for he was discovered to be proud, to be above his company, and above being pleased ; and not all his large estate in Derbyshire could then save him from having a most forbidding, disagreeable countenance, and being unworthy to be compared with his friend.
