Čitateľský kútik


Dnes som sa rozhodla pridať trošku netradičný článok, akých sa v poslednom čase objavilo niekoľko na rôznych blogoch. Vyzerá to zaujímavo a prečo sa tiež nezapojiť? Mám rada dekorovanie a je pravda, že tá moja knižnica by potrebovala nejako vynoviť. Tak prečo si k tomu nepohľadať aj nejakú lampu alebo nálepku na stenu?

Mesto plné tajomstiev | Twelve Kings


Autor: Bradley Beaulieu 
Názov: Twelve Kings (in Sharakhai) 
Séria: The Song of the Shattered Sands 
Diel: prvý 
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je 
Hodnotenie na GR: 3.99
Sharakhai, the great city of the desert, center of commerce and culture, has been ruled from time immemorial by twelve kings—cruel, ruthless, powerful, and immortal. With their army of Silver Spears, their elite company of Blade Maidens, and their holy defenders, the terrifying asirim, the Kings uphold their positions as undisputed, invincible lords of the desert. There is no hope of freedom for any under their rule.
Or so it seems, until Çeda, a brave young woman from the west end slums, defies the Kings’ laws by going outside on the holy night of Beht Zha’ir. What she learns that night sets her on a path that winds through both the terrible truths of the Kings’ mysterious history and the hidden riddles of her own heritage. Together, these secrets could finally break the iron grip of the Kings’ power...if the nigh-omnipotent Kings don’t find her first.

Top 10 #5: Moderné spracovanie mytológie



Vyberať jednotlivé žánre je niekedy oveľa ťažšie, než som si predstavovala, nakoľko sú žánre, ktoré nečítam vôbec. Tým pádom je ťažké o nich písať nejaký druh článkov. Ale nakoniec sa mi podarilo niečo vybrať a aby som bola úprimná, ide o moju obľúbenú „tému“. Hoci nájsť si čas na napísanie tohto článku bolo už o niečo ťažšie...

Diel: tretí 
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je

The Circle is hers. But Avery West has lost everything else: her mother, the family she’d just found, and the one boy she trusted. In their place are unfathomable power, a staged relationship that makes her question every real feeling she’s ever had, and a mission to find the cure to the virus that’s made her own blood a weapon.
Then disaster strikes, turning Avery, Stellan, Jack, and Elodie into the most wanted people in the world. To clear their names and the growing rift between the families of the Circle before the world dissolves into World War Three, they’ll have to make a desperate, dangerous final race for Alexander the Great’s tomb. What they will find inside will mean the world’s salvation—or destruction.

Oslava narodenín a The Making of Harry Potter



Pozrieť sa do štúdií Warner Bros je snom nejedného knihomoľa. Odhaliť mágiu, ktorá stvorila jeden z najväčších filmových fenoménov je jednoznačne fascinujúce a veľmi lákavé. Po troch rokoch mizerného plánovania sa nám s tetou konečne podarilo všetko vyriešiť a naplánovať tak, aby sme sa tam mohli vybrať. Rozhodla som sa sprostredkovať vám svoju skúsenosť, pretože sa s vami chcem podeliť o svoju radosť. A nielen o to...

Najskôr priateľ, neskôr zlosyn | Lost Boy



Autor: Christina Henry 
Názov: Lost Boy 
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: nie je 
Hodnotenie na GR: 4.23
There is one version of my story that everyone knows. And then there is the truth. This is how it happened. How I went from being Peter Pan’s first—and favourite—lost boy to his greatest enemy
Peter brought me to his island because there were no rules and no grownups to make us mind. He brought boys from the Other Place to join in the fun, but Peter’s idea of fun is sharper than a pirate’s sword. Because it’s never been all fun and games on the island. Our neighbours are pirates and monsters. Our toys are knife and stick and rock—the kinds of playthings that bite.
Peter promised we would all be young and happy forever. Peter lies.

“Peter will say I’m a villain, that I wronged him, that I never was his friend. But I told you already. Peter lies.”

Hanna is the station captain’s pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy’s most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall, carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.
When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station’s wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren’t just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia—and possibly the known universe—is in their hands.
But relax. They’ve totally got this. They hope.

Na dvore z tŕňov a ruží TAG



Nestáva sa často, aby som ja robila tag. Ak ma už však nejaký zaujme, rada ho vyplním a považujem to za spestrenie článkov na blogu. Jedným z takých tagov je aj tento, ktorý som našla na blogu Never trust a duck, a jeho autorkou je Maggie. ACOTAR úplne zbožňujem a ak je séria, o ktorej dokážem hovoriť doslova hodiny, je to práve táto. Dúfam, že tento tag zaujme aj vás...

Cirkus je rodina | Infini



Autor: Krista & Becca Ritchie 
Názov: Infini 
Séria: Aerial Ethereal 
Diel: druhý 
České alebo slovenské vydanie: zatiaľ nie je 
Hodnotenie na GR: 4.24
"Don’t have a best friend that’s a girl" — this was the advice from my older cousin. I didn’t take it. Because he followed with, "friends don’t f*ck friends. And you’ll want to f*ck her." 
It was terrible advice.
My cousin should’ve told me that being best friends with Baylee Wright — since she was twelve — would be the best and worst decision of my life.
He should have told me to protect her from what was coming.
He should have told me that when a darkness crawled towards us, there’d be no safety net.
Now I’ve signed back on to the same Vegas acrobatic show as Baylee, working together for the first time in years. And she tells me that she’s having trouble in a certain “area” of her life — because of our past.
“You can help me fix it,” she says. And then she hands me a list.

“Circus is family.”
