Ubytovanie pre knihy III



Rok pomaličky za mnou a ja som si uvedomila, že by som opäť raz mohla nafotiť svoje poličky s knihami, čo mi ponúklo úžasnú príležitosť zase si ich raz poupratovať na miesta, kam skutočne patria. Pretože ako správny knihomoľ mám knihy asi všade a najradšej na bratovom stole. Teda, hlavne keď nie je doma, ale tak či onak sú prosto tam. Ale poďme sa pozrieť ako si nažívajú moje poličky...

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...

Séria: The Conspiracy of Us 
Diel: tretí 
Slovenské alebo české vydanie: zatiaľ nie je 
Hodnotenie na GR: 4.30
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.
