Continuări din străinătate (5)

Nu am mai făcut de mult timp o ediție nouă din rubrica aceasta și mi-era dor de ea, așa că, vă prezint a cincea ediție din Continuări din străinătate! (Nu-i așa că sună de parcă prezint X Factor ? 😀 ) De această dată, voi discuta despre seria Chimie Perfectă de Simone Elkeles, publicată de curând și la noi, la editura Leda.

 

Rules of Attraction (Perfect Chemistry #2)

When Carlos Fuentes returns to America after living in Mexico for a year, he doesn’t want any part of the life his older brother, Alex, has laid out for him at a high school in Colorado . Carlos likes living his life on the edge and wants to carve his own path—just like Alex did. Then he meets Kiara Westford. She doesn’t talk much and is completely intimidated by Carlos’ wild ways. As they get to know one another, Carlos assumes Kiara thinks she’s too good for him, and refuses to admit that she might be getting to him. But he soon realizes that being himself is exactly what Kiara needs right now.

Chain Reaction (Perfect Chemistry #3)

Luis Fuentes has always been sheltered from the gang violence that nearly destroyed his brothers’ lives. But that didn’t stop him from taking risks—whether he’s scaling a mountain in the Rockies or dreaming of a future as an astronaut, Luis can’t stop looking for the next thrill.

Nikki Cruz lives her life by three rules—boys lie to get their way, don’t trust a boy who says “I love you,” and never date a boy from the south side of Fairfield. Her parents may be from Mexico, but as a doctor’s daughter, she has more in common with her north-side neighbors than the Latino Blood at her school. Then she meets Luis at Alex’s wedding, and suddenly, she’s tempted to break all her rules.

Getting Nikki to take a chance on a southsider is Luis’s biggest challenge, until he finds himself targeted by Chuy Soto, the new head of the Latino Blood. When Chuy reveals a disturbing secret about Luis’s family, the youngest Fuentes finds himself questioning everything he’s ever believed to be true. Will his feelings for Nikki be enough to stop Luis from entering a dark and violent world and permanently living on the edge?

Ei, ce ziceți? Vi se par interesante? Mie da! De abia aștept să fie publicate și la noi în România 🙂

P.S. Stați cu ochii pe blog pentru a citi primul capitol din Rules of Attraction în română (tradus de mine) 😀

Continuări din străinătate (4)

Bună! În primul rănd, îmi cer din nou scuze că nu am postat nici o recenzie în ultimul timp, dar am fost ocupată cu școala. Oricum, mai am doar 100 de pagini din A 16-a lună 🙂 Dar, până atunci, aceasta este a patra ediție din Continuări din străinătate. De data ceasta vă voi prezenta continuarea seriei Sânge albastru de Melissa de la Cruz.

După cum bine știți, primele trei volume au apărut și la noi:

În serie mai sunt 4 volume și o carte “de companie”, Bloody Valentine, care știți că va apărea cu revista Bravo pe 14 februarie:

În continuare, cele 4 volume despre care v-am vorbit:

 The Van Alen Legacy (Blue Bloods #4) by Melissa de la Cruz

 With the stunning revelation surrounding Bliss’s true identity comes the growing threat of the sinister Silver Bloods. Once left to live the glamorous life in New York City, the Blue Bloods now find themselves in an epic battle for survival. Not to worry, love is still in the air for the young vampires of the Upper East Side. Or is it? Jack and Schuyler are over. Oliver’s brokenhearted. And only the cunning Mimi seems to be happily engaged.

Young, fanged, and fabulous, Melissa de la Cruz’s vampires unite in this highly anticipated fourth installment of the Blue Bloods series.

 

 

   Misguided Angel (Blue Bloods #5) by Melissa de la Cruz

 After inheriting the dark Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler fled to Florence with her forbidden love, Jack. Now the two of them must embark on the mission Schuyler was destined to complete: to find and protect the five remaining gates that guard the earth from Lucifer, lord of the Silver Bloods.
Back in New York, Mimi has been elected Regent of a crumbling coven. Struggling with her heartache over the loss of Kingsley and with her overwhelming desire to destroy Jack, she must focus all of her energy on a perilous new threat. Vampires are being abducted and their captors are planning to burn them alive online…for all the world to see. Help arrives in the form of Deming Chen, a Venator from Shanghai, who must untangle the web of deceptions before the killers strike again.

 Lost in time (Blue Bloods #6) by Melissa de la Cruz

As the young vampires struggle for the survival of the coven, they uncover a deadly secret, a truth first discovered by Schuyler’s mother during the Renaissance but kept buried for centuries. And as the Blue Blood enclave weakens yet further, fate leads Schuyler to a terrible choice that will ultimately map the destiny of her heart.

After their beautiful yet brief bonding ceremony in Italy, Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force are forced to separate. To fulfill the Van Alen Legacy, Schuyler travels to Alexandria to search for Catherine of Siena and the Gate of Promise. But Schuyler quickly discovers that everything she believed about the Gate to be wrong. Meanwhile, Jack makes the difficult decision to return to New York to face his twin and former bondmate, Mimi. But instead of a bitter reunion, he is faced with a choice for which there is no good option.

Mimi, with a most unexpected travel companion in Oliver Hazard-Perry, jets off to Egypt, too, to search for Kingsley Martin, her long lost love. With all roads leading to Hell, Mimi learns that not all love stories have happy endings. But she’ll have to put her own feelings aside if she’s going to save her crumbling Coven.

Packed with heartache, twists, and vampiric folklore, Lost in Time is sure to satisfy hungry fans’ cravings for more Blue Bloods adventure.

Continuări din străinătate (3)

Am revenit cu a treia ediție din Continuări din Străinătate. Astăzi am ales continuarea cărții Nu plânge sub clar de lună de Heather Davis.

Sometimes by Moonlight by Heather Davis

It’s bad enough that the guy Shelby fell in love with at brat camp last summer had a dark secret, but helping him protect it has come at a huge cost. It’s goodbye, Beverly Hills mansion; hello, creepy Swiss boarding school.

What could be worse than doing time at Steinfelder Academy for Girls? Not hearing a word from her summer boyfriend, Austin Bridges III. Shelby’s not even sure that the sacrifice she made for him meant anything, especially after she spies him in the tabloids with a European pop princess.

But Austin’s more than your average son-of-a-rockstar werewolf hottie, and his connection to Shelby is stronger than she realizes.

As the days grow darker and the school prepares for holiday break, Austin arrives to explain the real reasons he’s stayed away. Suddenly, Shelby begins to understand her improved senses, her need for moonlight, and her growing hunger. Now trapped at Steinfelder, with its ties to an ancient, bloody brotherhood, Shelby realizes that loving Austin will cost her more than she could have imagined.

A dangerous full moon approaches for Shelby and Austin in this ebook novella sequel to the popular Young Adult romance Never Cry Werewolf.

Din păcate, cartea există doar în format ebook. Poate Leda se îndură și o va tipări. 🙂

 

Continuări din străinătate (2)

Bună! M-am întors cu o altă ediţie din Continuări din străinătate. Astăzi am ales Blestemul din Swoon de Nina Malkin.

Acesta este al doilea volum al seriei:

SWEAR by Nina Malkin

A promise broken. A bond betrayed.

It’s been six months since ghost-turned golem Sinclair Youngblood Powers confessed his love, stole Dice’s heart, and disappeared from Swoon, perhaps from existence. Despite the hurt, Dice has been moving steadily toward ordinary. Dreams of Sin still plague and pleasure her sleep, and the mark of Sin’s love remains on her skin, still sore. But Dice has been throwing herself into music, finding solace in song and sometimes even in the arms of her band mate, Tosh. Life seems almost…normal. The last thing Dice wants is to mess with anything remotely supernatural. But when her best friend’s boyfriend goes missing, Dice has no choice but to become very much involved. She knows that his disappearance was no accident, and it somehow has everything to do with Sin. Because Dice can feel it: Sin is back. And the promises and deceptions he left in his wake have returned to haunt him.

What do you do when an oath of devotion threatens to destroy the one you love?

 

Cartea a apărut în luna octombrie a acestui an în America.

Continuări din străinătate

Scuze, dar nu am avut inspiraţie pt. un alt titlu! M-am gândit că poate aţi vrea să ştiţi ce volume mai au seriile care au apărut şi în România. Pentru prima “ediţie”, am ales primul volum din seria Cronicile Casterilor,  A 16-a lună de Kami Garcia şi Margaret Stohl, publicată la editura Rao.

Acesta este al doilea volum al seriei:

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he met mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who revealed a secret world that had been hidden in plain sight all along. A Gatlin that harbored ancient secrets beneath its moss-covered oaks and cracked sidewalks. A Gatlin where a curse has marked Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals for generations. A Gatlin where impossible, magical, life-altering events happen.

Sometimes life-ending.

Together they can face anything Gatlin throws at them, but after suffering a tragic loss, Lena starts to pull away, keeping secrets that test their relationship. And now that Ethan’s eyes have been opened to the darker side of Gatlin, there’s no going back. Haunted by strange visions only he can see, Ethan is pulled deeper into his town’s tangled history and finds himself caught up in the dangerous network of underground passageways endlessly crisscrossing the South, where nothing is as it seems.

Iar aceasta este coperta ce va fi folosită la noi:

Iar acesta este al treilea volum al seriei:

Ethan Wate thought he was getting used to the strange, impossible events happening in Gatlin, his small Southern town. But now that Ethan and Lena have returned home, strange and impossible have taken on new meanings. Swarms of locusts, record-breaking heat, and devastating storms ravage Gatlin as Ethan and Lena struggle to understand the impact of Lena’s Claiming. Even Lena’s family of powerful Supernaturals is affected – and their abilities begin to dangerously misfire. As time passes, one question becomes clear: What – or who – will need to be sacrificed to save Gatlin?

For Ethan, the chaos is a frightening but welcome distraction. He’s being haunted in his dreams again, but this time it isn’t by Lena – and whatever is haunting him is following him out of his dreams and into his everyday life. Even worse, Ethan is gradually losing pieces of himself – forgetting names, phone numbers, even memories. He doesn’t know why, and most days he’s too afraid to ask.

Sometimes there isn’t just one answer or one choice. Sometimes there’s no going back. And this time there won’t be a happy ending.

Şi coperta ce va fi folosită în România (mie mi se pare cea mai drăguţă dintre toate):

Şi mai există, de asemenea, şi un al patrulea volum care va fi publicat în 2012 în străinătate. Încă nu s-a ales nici o copertă pt. el.

Păi, sper că v-a plăcut! Spuneţi-mi părerea voastră! Sărbători fericite!
