Cărţi noi (7)

Iată că a venit vremea să vă împărtăşesc din nou ce cărţi noi au poposit în biblioteca mea, fie pe rafturi, fie pe Kindle. Să le luăm, aşadar, în ordine!

Pe raftul meu din bibliotecă am adăugat "Scrisori către o tânără gimnastă" de Nadia Comăneci, pe care am primit-o cadou de la naşa mea.

Scrisori către o tânără gimnastă - de Nadia Comăneci

Intre Oklahoma si Bucuresti distanta e mare doar daca te cramponezi de geografie. Nadia are insa harta ei, pe care drumul intre cele doua se parcurge cu iuteala gandului. Stabilita locativ in America si afectiv in Romania, sportiva care a schimbat cursul gimnasticii s-a decis sa le spuna celor care vor sa-i calce pe urme cat de anevoios e drumul de la baza la varful piramidei si cat de serioase riscurile. Prin treisprezece scrisori oneste si directe, ea scoate din cotloane amintiri mai vechi si mai noi si se prezinta cu ele in fata cititorilor. De la Onesti la Deva si de la Fort Worth la Montreal, traseul ei e apasat ca o aterizare la sarituri si sinuos ca o acrobatie printre paralele. Nadia le spune celor care vor s-o auda ca nu s-a nascut printesa, nu si-a uitat trecutul si nu si-a sters prietenii din agenda. Totodata, ea scrie o serie de minieseuri care pot sa para retete ale succesului, dar nu sunt. Rostul lor e sa le deschida ochii candizilor care nu stiu ca gramul de aur inseamna un litru de sudoare. Si sa-i invite la cumpatare pe toti cei care vad in marii sportivi niste aspiratoare de privilegii si nimic mai mult. Nadia e sincera, lucida si detasata. Are, adica, trei calitati vitale pentru un cronicar al trecutului imediat.

 

Şi iată ce e nou pe Kindle-ul meu:

The Childe (The Childe Series, #1) - de C. A. Kunz

Cat Colvin
Average Teenager?
Or Something Else Entirely?
Cat Colvin is pretty much your typical run-of-the-mill teenager. Sure, she’s taller than most girls, has a mane of fiery red hair that’s impossible to tame, is left-handed, and her eyes are two different colors, but that’s where the differences end... unless you include the minor detail of her slow transformation into a Childe.
High school can definitely be challenging, and for Cat it’s no different. This is especially true when she’s faced with the daunting task of trying to hide her budding Childe traits as they begin to reveal themselves at the most inopportune times. To make matters worse, her family is oddly dead set against Ryan, the boy she grows to like. But everyone has their secrets: is Ryan really what he seems to be, and what is Cat’s family not telling her?
The Childe is the first book in this coming-of-age fantasy series which follows Cat's life through the twists and turns toward finding out whom and what she really is. Come and take the plunge with Cat into a world filled with mystery, biting humor, and the paranormal.

Prince of Wolves (The Grey Wolves Series) - de Quinn Loftis

Jaque Pierce was just an ordinary 17 year old girl getting ready to start her senior year in high school in Coldspring, Texas. When a mysterious foreign exchange student from Romania moves in across the street, Jacque and her two best friends, Sally and Jen, don't realize the last two weeks of their summer was going to get a lot more interesting. From the moment Jacque sets eyes on Fane she feels an instant connection, a pull like a moth to a flame. Little does she know that the flame she is drawn to is actually a Canis lupis, werewolf, and she just happens to be his mate; the other half of his soul. The problem is Fane is not the only wolf in Coldspring, Texas. Just as Fane and Jacque are getting to know each other, another wolf steps out to try and claim Jacque as his mate. Fane will now have to fight for the right to complete the mating bond, something that is his right by birth but is being denied him by a crazed Alpha. Will the love Fane has for Jacque be enough to give him the strength to defeat his enemy, will Jacque accept that she is Fane's mate and complete the bond between them?

BAIT (Angler book 1) (The Angler) - de Annie Nicholas

Live bait makes all the difference.

Sent on a mission to lure Budapest’s vampire Overlord into a trap, Connie Bence is instead caught red-handed by the dark Casanova.

Her employer has concrete proof of the dubious leader’s misdeeds but she is surprised when this ruthless killer, Rurik, offers her protection and rescues her from his own kind. It plants seeds of doubt in her mind and she begins to question his guilt.

Now she is thrown into his world where blackmail determines her every move and where she must betray those she cares about or let them die.

The stakes are high. She either puts her trust in Rurik or leads him to his execution.

Love or life.

Dagger Heart - de Ronnell D. Porter

Norway, 704 A.D.
The valiant King Ulfur defeated the evil that swept the seaside village of Nornör into despair; Morgan, the demon witch, has been dead for nearly twenty years. The truce between King Úlfur and the Queen of the Fae has remained intact since the day that Morgan’s dark curses vanished. It seemed that peace had finally come to the wounded souls of the village.
But this peace is shaken when three curses that Morgan promised with her dying breath are placed upon the Norwegian village: who among them has cast the spell?
Seventeen-year-old Erica finds herself trapped in the middle of a witch’s deadly revenge scheme with no way out but to fight for survival. On top of trying to end the curses devouring her village like a savage beast she finds herself at the center of attention when it comes to Viking King Úlfur’s three sons: Kriger, Paul, and Finn.
Three of them will fight alongside her.
Two of them want to marry her.
One of them could be the son of King Úlfur… and Morgan.

Beautiful Demons (Peachville High Demons #1) - de Sarra Cannon

In Peachville, even the cheerleaders have a dark side...

Harper Madison isn't like other girls. She has extraordinary powers, but her inability to control them has gotten her kicked from so many foster homes she's lost count. Shadowford Home is her last chance, and she hopes Peachville High will be the fresh start she needs.

But when evidence ties her to the gruesome murder of a Demons cheerleader, Harper discovers this small town has a big secret.

Beautiful Demons is a fast-paced YA novel with magic, mystery, and a touch of romance. This series will appeal to fans of Pretty Little Liars, Hex Hall, and The Vampire Diaries.

This is a short novel at approximately 47,000 words.

La acestea se adaugă primul volum din Hattori Hachi, de care v-am povestit când v-am anunţat de faptul că este gratuit pentru o perioadă de timp.

Cam atât deocamdată! Lectură plăcută, orice carte v-ar încânta!
