Hey hey hey! Uite o rubrica de mult uitata. Nu am mai posat-o de aproape un an, dar v-am zis ca vreau sa lucrez si la aceste rubrici. 😉

Vreau sa va arat o carte pe care vreau foarte mult sa o citesc. In postul anterior v-am vorbit despre ecranizarea acestei carti. Vorbesc despre White Bird in a Blizzard de Laura Kasischke.

white bird in a blizzard book Laura Kasischke’s first novel, SUSPICIOUS RIVER, was hailed as “extremely powerful” (The Los Angeles Times) and “amazing…beautifully written” (The Boston Globe). Now Kasischke follows up her auspicious debut with mesmerizing story of youthful passion and loss of innocence.When Katrina Connors’ mother walks out on her family, Kat is surprised but not shocked; the whole year she has been “becoming sixteen” – falling in love with the boy next door, shedding her babyfat, discovering sex – her mother has been slowly withdrawing. As Kat and her impassive father pick up the pieces of their daily lives, she finds herself curiously unaffected by her mother’s absence. But in dreams that become too real to ignore, she’s haunted by her mother’s cries for help. Finally, she must act on her instinct that something violent and evil has occurred – a realization that brings Kat to a chilling discovery.

Like SUSPICIOUS RIVER, which The New Yorker described as “by turns terrifying and ravishingly lyrical,” WHITE BIRD BLIZZARD evokes works of Kathryn Harrison and Joyce Carol Oates – and confirms Kasischke’s arrival as a major literary talent.

Cred ca principalul motiv pentru care vreau sa citesc aceasta carte este clar: pntru ca am vazut filmul si mi-a placut. A trecut ceva vreme de cand am citit o drama cu adolescenti care descopera viata. Povestea mi-a placut foarte mult si sunt foarte curioasa sa vad daca exista diferente intre carte si film. Trebuie doar sa o cumpar si treaba este rezolvata!

Exista cineva pe-aici care a citit-o?? Pareri? Vreau sa aud tot despre aceasta carte! 🙂

Subiect unic, coperta simpla dar graitoare, titlu interesant si sinopsis intrigant. Adica, ingredientele pentru o carte pe care trebuie sa o citesc! Ah da, ca sa nu mai spunem ca media pe GoodReads e de 4.39, cu 64,637 rating-uri. Suna bine, asa-i?

‘Wonder’ de R.J. Palacio!

11387515

I won’t describe what I look like. Whatever you’re thinking, it’s probably worse.

August (Auggie) Pullman was born with a facial deformity that prevented him from going to a mainstream school—until now. He’s about to start 5th grade at Beecher Prep, and if you’ve ever been the new kid then you know how hard that can be. The thing is Auggie’s just an ordinary kid, with an extraordinary face. But can he convince his new classmates that he’s just like them, despite appearances?

R. J. Palacio has written a spare, warm, uplifting story that will have readers laughing one minute and wiping away tears the next. With wonderfully realistic family interactions (flawed, but loving), lively school scenes, and short chapters, Wonder is accessible to readers of all levels.

Suna bine si v-ar placea s-o cititi. Nu, nu citesc gandurile, dar stiu ce gandesc eu si stiu ce gandesc cititorii cand vad o astfel de carte, in general. 😀

In ultima vreme m-am concentrat numai pe carti YA, NA sau romance. Dar m-am hotarat sa mai citesc si un pic de fantasy, pentru ca fantasy-ul ramane unul dintre genurile mele preferate. Hotararea asta am luat-o astazi, cand, din intamplare am gasit o carte fantasy care suna foarte bine! Are o coperta interesanta (desi cumva familiara), un titlu interesant si un sinopsis intrigant. 😀

“The Nightmare” de Mindee Arnett

12411635

Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she’s a criminal. No, she’s a Nightmare.

Literally.

Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother’s infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker’s house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He’s hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn’t get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder.

Then Eli’s dream comes true.

Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli’s dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she’s up to and marks her as the next target.

A New York Times and USA Today bestseller!

His challenge? Make her fall in love with him.
Her challenge? Play the player.
Until life changes the rules of the game.

Maddie Stevens hated Braden Carter on sight. Arrogant, egotistical, and the playboy of the University of California, Berkeley, he’s everything her brother Pearce has taught her to despise. So why, when the girls challenge her to play the player, doesn’t she say no? She doesn’t know either.

Braden wanted fiery little Maddie the second he laid eyes on her – and he’d do anything to have her, hence why he’s agreed to make her fall in love with him. After all, it’s the only way he’ll get what he wants. Sex.

But, as Braden discovers, there’s more to the girl from Brooklyn than he ever imagined – and he can’t help but care about the broken girl behind those pretty green eyes.

Maddie finds Braden isn’t just a walking erection – he actually has feelings. He can be sweet, funny and his good looks don’t exactly hurt. That means trouble – but when her brother Pearce turns up in Berkeley begging for her help, she realises Braden and Pearce aren’t so alike anymore.

And maybe, just maybe, they’re exactly what each other needs.

Cum vi se pare? V-ar placea sa o cititi? 🙂

For as long as she can remember, Wren Gray’s goal has been to please her parents. But as high school graduation nears, so does an uncomfortable realization: Pleasing her parents once overlapped with pleasing herself, but now… not so much. Wren needs to honor her own desires, but how can she if she doesn’t even know what they are?

Charlie Parker, on the other hand, is painfully aware of his heart’s desire. A gentle boy with a troubled past, Charlie has loved Wren since the day he first saw her. But a girl like Wren would never fall for a guy like Charlie—at least not the sort of guy Charlie believes himself to be.

And yet certain things are written in the stars. And in the summer after high school, Wren and Charlie’s souls will collide. But souls are complicated, as are the bodies that house them…

Sexy, romantic, and oh-so-true to life, this is an unforgettable look at first love from one of young adult fiction’s greatest writers.

Va era dor de rubrica asta? Mie da! Abia acum mi-am adus aminte de ea, dupa ce am dat un search pe blog dupa toate rubricile de pe blog. Ah da, si ca o curiozitate… de la inceputul blogului am aproape 27 de rubrici… nici nu-I de mirare ca nu mi le amintesc pe toate. Dar le-am notat acum pe o hartie si voi posta constant din fiecare. Si voi mai inaugura si altele. 😉

Ok, anyway. Stiu ca s-ar putea sa ma urati pentru treaba asta, dar vreau sa va arat o carte care mi-a captat atentia. Pentru ca suna ataaaaat de bine. Si e si distopie! Suna bine, si o vreau! O vreau, vreau, vreau!! Suna bine, are o coperta dark si numai recenzii bune. Cartea se numeste “Promise me Darkness” si e scrisa de Paige Weaver. Check it out!

17733971“He was my darkness and I was his light. We couldn’t exist without each other.”

For me, life was simple. I went to school and studied. I spent time with my friends and stayed out of trouble. I didn’t drink or swear and I only dated gentlemen. I was the typical good girl with a bright future. My world seemed perfect.

But that was about to change.

Ryder Delaney was the one imperfection in my life. He was the bad boy, the black sheep, the one your mother always warned you about. He had only one hard-and-fast rule – Don’t fall in love.

But some rules were meant to be broken.

We were best friends, inseparable since childhood despite our differences. I knew the real man hiding behind the tattoos and bad attitude. He knew all my secrets and dreams. But he didn’t know there was one thing I wanted and couldn’t have…him.

But sometimes Fate has a way of intervening. Soon our world collapsed. War erupted. Darkness prevailed. Alone and on the run, our only goal was to survive and to ignore the feelings we had for each other. But love is powerful…

and so is the darkness.

Cred ca am gasit o carte perfecta pentru persoanele triste: “Wallganger” de Alice Clayton. Cartea pare super amuzanta si am de gand sa o citesc.Daca numai din descriere am ras,dar imaginati-va cum voi rade cititnd cartea!

Wallbanger

 

Caroline Reynolds has a fantastic new apartment in San Francisco, a KitchenAid mixer, and no O (and we’re not talking Oprah here, folks). She has a flourishing design career, an office overlooking the bay, a killer zucchini bread recipe, and no O. She has Clive (the best cat ever), great friends, a great rack, and no O.

Adding insult to O-less, since her move, she has an oversexed neighbor with the loudest late-night wallbanging she’s ever heard. Each moan, spank, and–was that a meow?–punctuates the fact that not only is she losing sleep, she still has, yep, you guessed it, no O.

Enter Simon Parker. (No, really, Simon, please enter.) When the wallbanging threatens to literally bounce her out of bed, Caroline, clad in sexual frustration and a pink baby-doll nightie, confronts her heard-but-never-seen neighbor. Their late-night hallway encounter has, well, mixed results. Ahem. With walls this thin, the tension’s gonna be thick…

In her third novel, Alice Clayton returns to dish her trademark mix of silly and steamy. Banter, barbs, and strutting pussycats, plus the sexiest apple pie ever made, are dunked in a hot tub and set against the gorgeous San Francisco skyline in this hot and hilarious tale of exasperation at first sight.

V.R.E.A.U.!

Pageflex Persona [document: PRS0000037_00031]

 

Talia Gregory relies on her Nan for everything, especially helping her calm the anxiety that controls her life. But Nan gets sick, and it couldn’t be worse timing. Talia’s panic attacks are getting worse, her boyfriend is a jerk, her best friend is distant, her parents are more absent than usual and she’s stuck planning the Cozy Christmas Charity Drive for her knitting group in place of Nan. If that’s not panic inducing enough, enter Lachlan.

Lachlan McCreedy doesn’t rely on anyone. Not after what he’s been through. It’s him and Gram, nothing else matters but keeping his past buried, and his secrets hidden. So when Gram forces him to help with her Christmas sale, Talia is the last thing he expected, and trusting her with his secrets comes as a shock to both of them. But when he unexpectedly falls for her, the question becomes can he trust her with his heart?

*VREAU* Ce? Cum ce?”Breathless” de Jessica Warman. Ce, nu ati auzit inca de ea?Ei,lasa ca auziti acum.

breathless

 

When Katie Kitrell is shipped off to boarding school by her distant father and overbearing mother, it doesn’t take her long to become part of the It Crowd. She’s smart, she’s cute, and she’s an Olympic-bound swimmer who has a first class ticket to any Ivy League school of her choice. But what her new friends, roommate, and boyfriend don’t know is that Katie is swimming away from her past, and from her schizophrenic older brother, Will, who won’t let her go. And when he does the unthinkable, it’s all Katie can do to keep her head above water.

Interesant,nu?
