Astazi vreau sa va prezint o carte cu un subiect mai delicat, dar care nu trebuie neglijat. “V si for Virgin” de Kelly Oram este o carte ce trebuie citita de toti adolescentii pentru ca (,) cred ca e un exemplu si ai ce invata din carte. Plus ca, din recenziile pe care le-am citit, am inteles ca se perinda si un rock star pe acolo, care a fost numit “This year’s Sexiest Man Alive”. Nu trebuie ratata cartea,nu? 😉

When Val Jensen gets dumped for her decision to stay a virgin until marriage, the nasty breakup goes viral on YouTube, making her the latest internet sensation.

After days of ridicule from her peers, Val starts a school-wide campaign to rally support for her cause. She meant to make a statement, but she never dreamed the entire nation would get caught up in the controversy.

As if becoming nationally recognized as “Virgin Val” isn’t enough, Val’s already hectic life starts to spin wildly out of control when bad boy Kyle Hamilton, lead singer for the hit rock band Tralse, decides to take her abstinence as a personal challenge.

How can a girl stay true to herself when this year’s Sexiest Man Alive is doing everything in his power to win her over?

the edge of never

Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.

Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.

With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.

But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

Cine isi mai aduce aminte de aceasta rubrica? Ca sa fac un “remember” (xD) : in aceasta rubrica prezint carti non fictiune, care mi se par mie interesanta. V-ati adus aminte?

In seara asta,  am sa va prezint o carte pe care am gasit-o pe GoodReads si care e foarte potrivita pentru acesta rubrica : “Fix me” de Rune Michaels. Nu mai are nici un sens sa va zic ca vreau sa o citesc. Cititi descrierea si vedeti de ce… 🙂

 

Orphaned as a child, terrorized by her abusive brother, and haunted by memories, Leia feels exposed, powerless, and vulnerable. When her tormented mind can stand it no longer, she escapes to the zoo, where she finds shelter and seeks refuge. The zoo is a sanctuary: a protective space for families, and a safe place for the traumatized to forget. But can she ever feel safe? Can she ever forget?

Once again, Rune Michaels brings us a harrowing psychological drama that raises questions about the very nature of humanity. This chilling tale will challenge our preconceptions of family, memory, and self, leaving readers wondering, are we the pinnacle of evolution—or are we just animals on display?

 

Ce spuneti, v-ar placea sa cititi o carte de genul asta? Mie DA!

Hello! Ce faceti? Eu astazi nu am avut scoala si, pentru asta, am stat si am lenevit (adica dormit) mai toate ziua *evil grin* Dar acum am pus mana pe laptop si m-am apucat de treaba.

Se numeste “I’m not her”, e scrisa de Janet Gurtler si are o coperta superba, la fel ca si o descriere care te face sa spui “Mamiii, plomit ca daca imi cumpeli caltea asta nu iti mai cel nimic pana…. saptamana viitoale!” :)) (noroc ca mama e plecata in Romania:)) ). Gata ,termin cu palavrageala si va las coperta si descrierea. 🙂

Love is music!(3)

Cine vrea putina muzica?Eu da!

Trebuie sa recunosc ca sunt putin cam obsedata de One Direction,desi ii uram inainte.Ii vedeam peste tot,toata lumea vorbea despre ei si mie mi se pareau doar niste baieti frumusei.Dar nu le ascultasem muzica.I-am catalogat fara sa stiu nimic despre ei.Apoi,intr-o seara am ascultat One Thing.Si asta a fost,m-am indragostit iremediabil de muzica lor.De atunci ascult in continuu toate melodiile lor.Imi dau o stare de bine si imi plac le nebunie!Imi dau o stare de bine si ma fac sa visez.Plus ca,baietii astia m-au abitionat si mai mult ,pentru ca mi-au aratat ca se poate.Daca crezi in visul tau,se poate.Ei au pornit de pe scarile casei si au ajuns in top!Si da,pot sa zic ca sunt un Directioner si sunt mandra de asta!

Am toate melodiile lor pe telefon,dar cum cred ca ar fi fost prea plictisitor sa le pun pe toate aici,asa ca le-am ascultat pe toate si m-am decis la 4 melodii pe care sa vi le arat,desi vi le-as arata pe toate.

1.One thing, normal

2.More than this

3.I want -Gosh,iubesc melodia asta si de fiecare data dansez cand o ascult!

Voi ce mai ascultati in ultima vreme?Ce parere aveti de One Direction?

 

P.S.:Harry is my favourite!Telefonul meu e plin de poze cu el,iar carlintii aia sunt ca ai mei. 😀

Review:Ember by Madison Daniel

When I first read about “Ember” by Madison Daniel,it seemed a very good book and I wanted immediately to read it.And when I finally started it,I needed just ONE PAGE to figure out that this will be one of those books which you can get off of your hands and with which you fall immediately in love.And because it’s my favorite book after “Creatura”,I decided to make a publish campaign in Romania.

To be honest ,reading “Ember”,I felt the fire wereof talks Madison.This book was hot.Literally and figuratively. Also,”Ember” put a biiiigggg smile on my lips.It’s extraordinary!

Sure thing that Madison Daniel knows how to tell a story.While I read “Ember”,the action unfold before your  eyes and you feel like watching a movie.Plus,the mai character,Max,is very well created and I can tell that I fell in love with him.Hihihi,he is just perfect.He loves music,”plays” with the fire all the time….and it’s simply adorabile!I think I love this book mostly because of him.Hihi,just joking. 😀

I liked ,also,that this time a boy has to choose between 2 girls,not a girl between 2 boys,like we are used to.The originality is a strength point of this book.And in this book are formed 2 teams:Team Asia or Team Sam,the 2 girls who are in love with Max and that Max loves.I was something like: Team Sam Team Asia,no,Team Sam and so on.I still don’t know who I like the most,because each one of them  has something special and each one of them loves Max.

At the first sight ,”Ember” can appear like a normal YA book,without something so special.But once you open it and enter in this wonderful world created by Madison,you don’t want to “get out”.It’s full of drama and  there are so many feelings,that it overwhelms you  at some point and you burst into tears.And the feelings are so good described that ,like I said before, it makes  you cry.All this drama can make the book a delight,if you know what I mean.Pretty  weird,huh?

Once,I sesizated in Max’s behavior a trace of selfishness ,but if you get to know him and his story,you figure out how he suffered and from where does his need of affection come.I cried when I read what happened to his sister,Mia,and I saw that Max is alike my brother.My borther would make the same thing for me too if we were in the same situation.

The book begins in a pretty weird way:Max having a nightmare,with a girl names Mia.He tries very hard not to let the girl fall into a huge gap,but after all,Mia falls.Maybe you think tha Mia was Max’s girlfriend,but no.Mia was Max’s  sister.If you’ll read the book,you’ll find out why does Max have these nightmares which are not giving peace to him.

Starting with the first chapter,we enter into the story.Max,a young boy passionated by music and that apparently has problem with his temper,is arriving on the little island  where his uncle lives.Max may seem a  normal boy:he likes music and he playes guitar.But if you get to know him better,you’ll find that he can cotrol the fire.He can burn something when he is nervous or sad just by touching it.When his emotions get out of control,his hands and his entire body start to heat up ,reaching on a temperature which would kill a normal human.But this won’t kill Max,but won’t help him either.More,he considers that this “gift” is actually a curse.That’s how I consider too,after I learned his story.

Even from the first chapter,the weird things are making their entrance in the scene.Waiting for his uncle to get home,a puppy comes to Max.They like each other immediately.While they were playing on the pavement,in front of them passes a girl so beatufiul ,that her face will remain always in Max’s head.Out of nowhere,appears a biker  and ,without a reason,Oz,Max’s dog,jumps and barks at him .The biker walks on the poor Oz.If his owner would be a normal guy ,Oz would be dead.But because Max isn’t a normal guy,with the help of his “gift”,he heals Oz ,who immediately jumps happy on Max.

Finally, at home arrives Max’s uncle ,who ,in the next few months,will be like a father to Max.He tells to his nephew that he can make his exercises  to control his power on a beach where  is always raining and where is nobody.Max goes in that day on the beach and,in the middle of the exercises ,on the beach appears the girl who passed on the sidewalk while Max was waiting for his uncle.By a mistake,Max send the girl in the sea,where she is took by a wave and crashed into the rock.The girl dies immediately.After a few minutes,she is brought to the shore and Max,panicked,tries to bring her back.He manages ,but he used a lot of power for this.The girl leaves the beach angry ,without saying even a “Thank you”.Max is confused and a little annoyed.

In the morning of the first day of school ,at  Max’s door appears a girl that he doesn’t know,but it seems like she knows Max.She is very beautiful and she takes Max to the school.On their way to the school,she presents herself as “Sam”.They have a strange conversation,Max being arrogant,which annoys Sam sometimes.

At school,Max meets Kai,a drummer who figures out immediately that Max plays guitar.Max and Kei become friends right away,and Max sustains an ad-hoc audition to join Kai’s band and he is accepted immediately by Kai.Later,Max meets Marcus too,the other member of the band.The 3 boys form a band and  a group of  good friends too .

In the same day of school,Max sees the girl that he almost killed on the beach.She is still mad and avoids him.Kai tells Max the story of the girl,which leaves Maz speechless.The girl’s name is Asia and there is a story telling that she is cursed.Later,after Asia gets closer to Max,the boy finds out that she has a power too:she controls the rain.Asia considers that “gift” a curse too,like Max does.Between Max and Asia is a connection that can’t be broken by anyone.This connection was made when Max healed Asia.The girl gets to know everything about Max,and between them developes a relationship that is so weird,yet so beautiful.Finally,Asia ends up loving Max and Max loving her.

But in the meanwhile,Max and Sam get along increasingly better.They match extraordinary and always have fun together.Finally ,they get to fall in love with each other,resulting in a love triangle.Now,Max is in a difficult sitaution:he has to choose between Sam and Asia,the only girls he loved and that he will always love.Who do you think that Max will choose?Do you want to see Max’s other adventures?Then read this book.It deserves!

Love never dies…but it can kill.

Ember is the story of Max Valentine, a teenager with secret abilities and many inner demons. His life revolves around music and his love for it. When his father dies he seeks answers with his last living relative, his fathers brother Frank. Frank lives on the island of Maui and eagerly takes Max in as his own. Max soon learns that healing his past will be more difficult than he could have ever believed. Two major complications will tempt and torment him as he tries to make sense of his abilities.

The first temptation comes in the form of a mysterious island girl. Asia Lyn Michaels is rich, spoiled, angry and beautiful. Her path crosses with Max on the beach one afternoon, forever changing both of their lives. Max saves her life and she discovers his secret. From that moment on they are connected, no matter how much they fight it.

The second temptation will test Max’s very soul. Samantha Ann Summers is sweet, artistic, smart and confident. She will help Max find his smile again and maybe even heal his past mistakes. She is possibly his soul mate and Max will fight that with every fiber of his being.

Max’s temper and indecision with the girls will send in motion events that will cost him dearly. He will test the limits of his powers and the new relationship with his protective uncle. He will gain a powerful love and lose another.

Filled with action,mystery,love,passion and fire,”Ember” will hook you and will make you read without stopping.A delight to be enjoyed by all! I recommend this book from all my heart!It’s a must-have!
