Same title, different books (9)

Ei, uite o rubrica de care mi-a fost dor. Nu, nu, sa nu intelegeti gresit. De toate rubricilie mi-a fost dor, dar pe asta m-am gandit sa o postez in seara asa. 🙂

Din cauza ca in seara asta m-am apucat de scris recenzia la ‘Undone’ de R.E. Hunter, am cautat si sinopsis-ul pe GoodReads, si am mai gasit o carte foarte interesanta, care se numeste tot ‘Undone’. Si nu m-am putut abtine sa vi le arat. 🙂

Asta e ‘Undone’ de R.E. Hunter, cea pe care am citit-o eu si a careia ii scriu recenzia:

undone r.e. hunter

Five years ago, Embry Jacobs ran…

She ran from a past that still hasn’t let her go, but her dream of becoming a lawyer is stronger than her fear of confronting that past. Embry’s sole focus is to get through law school—with the help of her best friend, Morgan—and make something of the broken girl she became. Not thinking about falling in love, being in a relationship or even entertaining the idea of romance, Embry is moving forward one day at a time.

Luke Brody is charming and sexy, and has a past of his own. He wants nothing more than to put his demons to rest and move on with his life. But, when Embry enters the picture, is he destined to repeat those same mistakes? 

Blindsided by their instant attraction, neither Luke nor Embry are prepared for the feelings they’re developing. But will it all be for nothing?

Will they let their pasts destroy them, or will they risk everything to fight for their relationship when it all comes undone?

Iar asta e ‘Undone’ de Brooke Taylor, cea pe care nu am citit-o, dar pe care tare as vrea sa o citesc, pentru ca sunt interesant. 🙂

When Kori Kitlzer, the “dark angel” of the 8th grade, tells Serena Moore that they are more alike than she thinks, Serena is instantly intrigued.  As their friendship solidifies and their lives entwine, Serena tries to become more like the fearless, outspoken, and ambitious Kori. Soon Serena doesn’t know where she begins and Kori ends. But when a twist of fate yanks Kori away from Serena, she will need to find a way to complete her best friend’s life left undone. 

Undone is a striking debut novel about friendship, family, and the secrets we keep from the people to whom we are closest.

De vreme ce am citit ‘Undone’ de R.E. Hunter, de data asta voi alege ‘Undone’ de Brooke Taylor. De ce? Suna extrem de bine si foarte originala! Siii, sunt extrem de curioasa.

Voua pe carre v-ar placea sa o cititi? 🙂

Pro sau contra…? (30)

E timpul pentru ‘Pro sau contra…?’, in sfarsit! V-am mai spus ca iubesc rubrica asta,nu? Nu? Ei, v-o spun acum! Iubesc rubrica asta!:))))

Saptamana asta vreau sa vorbim despre autori care isi scriu singuri recenzii la carti.

De ceva timp am observat ca, pe GoodReads e o moda ca autorii sa isi scrie recenzii la propriile carti. Intrebarea mea e: WTF?!

De data asta, sunt contra. Adica pe bune! E ca si cum s-ar lauda singuri. Bun, eu inteleg ca ei vor sa li se vanda cartea si sa aiba un rating cat mai mare, dar asta nu e o rezolvare. E mai logic sa contacteze bloggeri, reviewer-i si sa ii roage sa le recenzeze cartea. Nu? Plus ca nu e normal. Normal ca toti autorii spun ca (,) cartea lor e buna, dar poate nu e asa. Cred ca cel mai corect e sa lase pe altii sa spuna daca intr-adevar e buna cartea sau nu. Se poate ca un autor sa isi scrie o recenzie favorabila, iar cartea sa nu fie tocmai cea mai buna. In felul asta, induce oamenii in eroare.

Deci nu, eu nu sunt de acord cu tactica asta a autorilor. Contra!

Voi ce parere aveti? Vi se pare corect ca autorii sa isi scrie singuri recenzii?Astept si parerile voastre! 🙂

De cand nu v-am mai aratat o carte in care unul dintre personaje canta la vreun instrument sau este pasionat de muzica?Cam da mult timp,nu? Astazi am gasit o carte indie, care se numeste “The Melody in our Heart si este scrisa de Roberta Capizzi. Coperta e foarte dragut si descrierea ma intriga. 🙂

the melody of our hearts

Doctor Valerie Fogarty studied hard to become a competent surgeon, but losing a patient during an operation made her throw everything out the window and now she can’t set foot into an operating room anymore. Until her best friend Ryan is brought into the ER on a stretcher, fighting for his life after a terrible car accident and she’s the only one who can save him. Meeting him as a teenager in their hometown in Ireland was the turning point in her life and she knows she will never be able to live without him. Will her determination and skills be enough to save Ryan’s life?

Jazz Star Ryan Wyler grew up in Dublin, with a dream of becoming a professional pianist and continuing the legacy of his musical hero, Frank Sinatra. When opportunity knocks and he’s offered the chance to pursue a real music career, he’s happy to accept it, unaware that what he’s actually accepting is a package deal he will have no control over. But when success keeps him away from Valerie, his best friend since adolescence, Ryan will have to question his choices.

A story about the value of true friendship, the power of dreams, and the unpredictability of love.

Am un singur cuvant pentru cartea  “The Forgotten Ones” de Laura Howard: intrigant!

The Forgotten Ones

 

Allison O’Malley just graduated from college. Her life’s plan is to get a job and take care of her schizophrenic mother. She doesn’t have room for friends or even Ethan, who clearly wants more.

When Allison’s long-lost father shows up, he claims he can bring her mother back from the dark place her mind has sent her. He reveals legends of a race of people long forgotten, the Tuatha de Danaan, along with the truth about why he abandoned her mother.

VREAU VREAU VREAU VREAU VREAU!!

nobody

There are people in this world who are Nobody. No one sees them. No one notices them. They live their lives under the radar, forgotten as soon as you turn away.

That’s why they make the perfect assassins.

The Institute finds these people when they’re young and takes them away for training. But an untrained Nobody is a threat to their organization. And threats must be eliminated.

Sixteen-year-old Claire has been invisible her whole life, missed by the Institute’s monitoring. But now they’ve ID’ed her and send seventeen-year-old Nix to remove her. Yet the moment he lays eyes on her, he can’t make the hit. It’s as if Claire and Nix are the only people in the world for each other. And they are—because no one else ever notices them.

 

VREAU VREAU VREAU VREAU! Voi? :))

SAMBATAAAAAA, WOHOOOO!!! Ma bucur ca a trecut satamana asta. Ce-i drept, a trecut repede.Siiii, suntem cu o saptamana mai aproape de vacanta!! Da!Mai sunt numai 2 saptamani pana cand intram in vacanta, 2 saptamani pana la Craciun! Si, cum e sambata, e vremea pentru “Pro sau contra…?” , nu-i asa? Astazi m-am gandit sa vorbim despre site-urile gen GoodReads, pe care gasesti carti pe care le poti trece ca si “to-be-read” sau “read” sau “currently reading” .Un fel de biblioteca online, numai ca mult mai tare. Pe acest site-uri de acest gen poti socializa cu alti cititori si cu autorii tai preferati. Cele mai cunoscute site-uri de acest fel sunt GoodReads si Shelfari, pe care cred ca toti le stiti. 🙂

goodreads

shelfari

Ei bine, eu sunt total PRO! Iubesc site-urile de acest gen, in special GoodReads. Mi se pare mai usor de umblat pe GoodReads decat pe Shelfari, chiar daca cel din urma site arata mai bine. GoodReads-ul il frecventez in fiecare zi, am adaugat cele mai multe carti acolo si am cei mai multi prieteni acolo.

De ce sunt pro? Pentru ca poti descoperi carti noi, foarte bune si te poti imprieteni cu multi cititori. Toata lumea de pe aceste site-uri iti intelege pasiunile si poti lega prietenii bune. De asemenea, e usor sa tii cont ce carti vrei sa citesc, pe care le-ai citit si pe care le citesti.Poti ajuta autorii lasand o recenzie pentru cartea lor, poti schimba pareri despre o anumita carte  cu alti cititori si poti face parte din niste grupuri foarte ‘cool’ (ce,nu am gasit nici un alt cuvant mai bun.lol ).  Nu vad nici o chestie care ar putea sa iti displaca la un site de acest fel.

Voi ce parere aveti despre site-urile acestea?Pro sau contra?

Cat timp a trecut de cand nu v-am mai prezentat o carte care mi-ar placea sa o am in biblioteca? Cam mult, nu-i asa? Dar astazi am gasit o carte care zic eu ca merita sa v-o prezint. Se numeste “Waterfall”, are o coperta frumoasa si un sinopsis si mai interesant. Take a look 🙂

What do you do when your knight in shining armor lives, literally, in a different world?

Most American teenagers want a vacation in Italy, but the Betarrini sisters have spent every summer of their lives among the romantic hills with their archaelogist parents. Stuck among the rubble of the medieval castles in rural Tuscany, on yet another hot, dusty archaeological site, Gabi and Lia are bored out of their minds…until Gabi places her hand atop a handprint in an ancient tomb and finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy. And worse yet, in the middle of a fierce battle between knights of two opposing forces.

Suddenly Gabi’s summer in Italy is much, much more interesting.

Ati citi cartea? Eu cred ca este  perfecta pentru o vara calduroasa in Italia, cum va fi vara mea urmatoare. 🙂

About Cameo Renae and her books

I think you heard about Cameo Renae already. I still wanna present you all of her books, links and everything about her and her books. Let’s start with Cameo.

cameo renae

Bio:

Cameo Renae was born in San Francisco, CA, was raised in Maui, Hawaii, and recently moved with her husband and children to Alaska.
She loved reading from as long as she can remember. C.S. Lewis’ – Chronicles of Narnia – sparked a fire in her soul which made her want to create her own wondrous, magical worlds, and awesome characters to go on adventures with.
Writing is her passion, and right now, her head is stuck in the YA genre. She loves to write about ghosts, angels, fantasy, and even zombies… actually, anything paranormal.
In My Dreams is her debut novel, and has been picked up by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly. It is set to be re-released December 14, 2012. Her newest novel, Hidden Wings, has also been accepted by Crushing Hearts and Black Butterfly and will be out January 18, 2013.
One day she hopes to find her own magic wardrobe, and ride away on her magical unicorn… Until then… she’ll keep writing!

Connect with Cameo:

Her first book is “In my dreams”. I read and loved this book and I recommend it. Read my review here.
in my dreams new cover
It was happening again. The dreams. The nightmares. It was something that seventeen-year old Elizabeth Hayes thought she’d outgrown… dreams that would come true…detailed premonitions of how people would die.
But this time, she has a dream of her boyfriend, Michael Young, and soon gets a call saying that Michael’s body has been found…dead. Her world is changed in an instant, but that’s just the beginning. Michael’s been murdered, and now his killer is after her.
Join Michael as he learns about his supernatural gifts to help save Lizzy, and Lizzy’s battle to stay alive.
In My Dreams is a story of unconditional love. The kind of love that lives beyond the grave. It is a story that will grip your heart, break and re-mend it, and take it on a wild ride of emotion.
