Hľadanie vykúpenia | The Glass Butterfly

Autor: A. G. Howard
Názov: The Glass Butterfly
Séria: Haunted Hearts Legacy
Diel: tretí
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je
Hodnotenie na GR: 4.15
For close to a decade, twenty-five-year-old Felicity Lonsdale has masqueraded as a dowager almost twice her age—selling caterpillars to butterfly consortiums—enabling her to hide an ill-fated past while raising her late brother’s daughters. Together, the three live on an isolated Irish estate bequeathed by a dying earl. When the earl’s estranged son arrives to claim his inheritance by threatening to expose Felicity’s true identity, she longs to pack up her nieces and run. But a ghostly secret within the castle’s turret holds her captive. 
Nick Thornton—a Roma viscount’s heir—is also captive. After a tryst with an investor’s wife nearly destroyed his family’s holiday resort, Nick forsook everything to elope with her. However, a tragic mistake at his hand led to her and his baby’s deaths. Refusing to turn to the family he shamed, Nick travels to seek the countess who once co-wrote a romance with his sister. There’s rumor of a special butterfly in her keep—a transparent-winged species with ties to the afterlife. Nick hopes to contact his dead wife and child, for only their forgiveness can free him.

Bibliotéka 2018 očami predávajúceho

Tento rok som sa takisto vybrala na Bibliotéku. Ale tento rok som sa nevybrala len ako návštevník a potenciálny zákazník, ale aj ako predajca. Jeden celý deň som prechádzala medzi stolmi s vystavenými knihami a odpovedala ľuďom na otázky, ktoré ma vlastne inšpirovali k tomu, aby som napísala trošku iný článok – akési postrehy nádejného predajcu kníh...

Prekliatie a pomsta | The Wicked Deep

Autor: Shea Ernshaw
Názov: The Wicked Deep
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je
Hodnotenie na GR: 3.83
Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.
Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.
Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.

O dvoch prekliatych sestrách | Blanca & Roja

Autor: Anna-Marie McLemore
Názov: Blanca & Roja
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je
Hodnotenie na GR: 4.10
The biggest lie of all is the story you think you already know.
The del Cisne girls have never just been sisters; they’re also rivals, Blanca as obedient and graceful as Roja is vicious and manipulative. They know that, because of a generations-old spell, their family is bound to a bevy of swans deep in the woods. They know that, one day, the swans will pull them into a dangerous game that will leave one of them a girl, and trap the other in the body of a swan.
But when two local boys become drawn into the game, the swans’ spell intertwines with the strange and unpredictable magic lacing the woods, and all four of their fates depend on facing truths that could either save or destroy them. Blanca & Roja is the captivating story of sisters, friendship, love, hatred, and the price we pay to protect our hearts. 

“Don’t give up. You’re not a swan yet.”

Moje obľúbené komiksy, vol. 1

V poslednom čase som si veľmi obľúbila komiksy. Niekedy sa im venujem častejšie, inokedy skôr občas. Nakoniec som sa rozhodla vám o niektorých napísať. Hlavne o tých, ktoré som si z rôznych dôvodov obľúbila. Možno sa nedostanem ďalej len k tomuto jednému článku. To ukáže len čas. Ale aj tak dúfam, že vás tento „projektík“ zaujme. Tu je prvá várka mojich obľúbených komiksov...

Mágia s predsudkami | The Near Witch

Autor: Victoria Schwab
Názov: The Near Witch
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je
Hodnotenie na GR: 3.74
The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children. 
If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company. 
And there are no strangers in the town of Near.
These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life. But when an actual stranger – a boy who seems to fade like smoke – appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.
The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him. As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi's need to know – about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

“Being a stranger is not a crime.”

After her family is killed by corrupt warlord Aric Athair and his bloodthirsty army of Bullets, Caledonia Styx is left to chart her own course on the dangerous and deadly seas. She captains her ship, the Mors Navis, with a crew of girls and women just like her, who have lost their families and homes because of Aric and his men. The crew has one mission: stay alive, and take down Aric's armed and armored fleet.
But when Caledonia's best friend and second-in-command barely survives an attack thanks to help from a Bullet looking to defect, Caledonia finds herself questioning whether to let him join their crew. Is this boy the key to taking down Aric Athair once and for all... or will he threaten everything the women of the Mors Navis have worked for?
