De la gala la gala, numarul cartilor se vor injumatati, dar veti avea ocazia sa salvati cateva de la eliminare

WISHLIST: GLITCH (GLITCH #1) DE HEATHER ANASTASIU

In the Community, there is no more pain or war. Implanted computer chips have wiped humanity clean of destructive emotions, and thoughts are replaced by a feed from the Link network. When Zoe starts to malfunction (or „glitch”), she suddenly begins having her own thoughts, feelings, and identity. Any anomalies must be immediately reported and repaired, but Zoe has a secret so dark it will mean certain deactivation if she is caught: her glitches have given her uncontrollable telekinetic powers. As Zoe struggles to control her abilities and stay hidden, she meets other glitchers including Max, who can disguise his appearance, and Adrien, who has visions of the future. Together, this growing band of glitchers must find a way to free themselves from the controlling hands of the Community before they’re caught and deactivated, or worse. In this action-packed debut, Glitch begins an exciting new young adult trilogy.

WISHLIST: UNEARTHLY (UNEARTHLY #1) DE CYNTHIA HAND

In the beginning, there’s a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she’s part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn’t easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there’s another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara’s less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she’d have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.

IN STRAINATATE: THE TALES OF LUNARMORTE SERIES

Moon Spell (The Tale of Lunarmorte #1)

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance…
It’s bad enough feeling different among the human crowd, but feeling different among wolves?
No one said returning to her pack would be easy, especially after ten years without them, but seventeen year old Caia Ribeiro is unprepared for the realities of the transition. Raised in a world where kids aren’t scared by bedtime tales of the bogeyman but by the real life threat of enemy supernaturals who might come creeping into their community to kill them in their sleep, Caia is used to the darkness; she’s used to the mystery and the intrigue of the ancient underworld war she’s bound to by chance of birth. What she’s having trouble with are pack members treating her with wary suspicion, the Elders tucking secrets behind their backs out of her sightline, and her young Alpha, Lucien, distracting her, with a dangerous attraction, from her decision to uncover the truth.
But as the saying goes ‘the truth will out’ and when it does, Caia will only have so long to prepare herself before the war comes pounding on their door threatening to destroy the safe, secret lives of the wolves… and the girl they protect.

River Cast (The Tale of Lunarmorte #2)

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance…

Swept into the world of the Daylight Coven, Caia is caught between her loyalty to the Daylights and her new insight into the hearts of the Midnights. As more obstacles are thrown in her and Lucien’s way, Caia is pushed further adrift from him and Pack Errante. With no one to turn to, Caia has to make the most difficult choice of all…

Who does she truly belong with? The Daylights or the Midnights?

Blood Solstice (The Tale of Lunarmorte #3)

Enter a world of fierce wolves, stunning magic and romance…

In the final installment of The Tale of Lunarmorte, Caia is caught between the most powerful beings in her world, and they are all desperate to use her for their own means. While Caia struggles to find her purpose, tragedy strikes close to home, and time runs out.
Now she must decide if she will join the extremists she was trying to destroy… or bring them all down on her own terms…

 

LA NOI: NU-I TIMP DE RAMAS BUN DE LYNWOOD BARKCLAY

Te trezeşti… Casa e pustie… Toţi ai tăi au dispărut…

CE ESTE MAI RĂU? SĂ DESCOPERI CĂ FAMILIA ŢI-A FOST UCISĂ FĂRĂ MILĂ DE UN ASASIN ÎN SERIE SAU SĂ AFLI CĂ TOŢI AI TĂI TE-AU PĂRĂSIT?

Cynthia Bigge, o adolescentă dificilă, se trezeşte mahmură după o noapte de petrecere şi nu-şi mai găseşte familia – tatăl, mama şi fratele ei Todd au dispărut fără a lăsa nici o urmă, nici un indiciu, nici măcar un bilet de rămas-bun. După douăzeci şi cinci de ani, dispariţia familiei Bigge rămâne acelaşi mister de nepătruns. Cynthia angajează un detectiv particular, apelează la o emisiune de televiziune gen reality-show, cu speranţa că, undeva, cineva ar putea şti totuşi ceva. Demersurile ei declanşează o avalanşă de semne care spun unul şi acelaşi lucru: dacă scormoneşti trecutul, rişti să afli sau să paţeşti ceva ce nu-ţi doreai.

„Un roman-mister, în care suspansul şi umorul suculent merg mână-n mână.” – BOOKLIST

„Un excelent roman palpitant, care te ţine în suspans până la final.” – PETER ROBINSON

LA NOI: TARA LUI DUMNEZEU DE ROSS RAISIN

Incep sa ma atraga tot mai mult cartile de genul asta, psihologice, iar asta e una de pe lista mea de „to-read”

 

Bântuit încă de umbrele unui incident pentru care a fost dat afară din şcoală, tânărul Sam Marsdyke lucrează la mica fermă a părinţilor, sub supravegherea ostilă a tatălui său. Dar în peisajul de o frumuseţe frustă şi sălbatică din comitatul Yorkshire (numit Ţara lui Dumnezeu, printre localnici) se insinuează treptat prefacerile aduse de civilizaţie şi de urbanism, de asaltul tot mai insistent al orăşenilor strămutaţi în căutarea farmecului rural.
Între tânărul fermier mai ciudat şi însingurat şi fiica adolescentă a unor nou-sosiţi pare să se lege o prietenie. Dar de la o escapadă amicală, animată de un gest de rebeliune juvenilă, la răpire şi prizonierat nu este decât un pas… Iar în mintea tot mai înceţoşată a lui Marsdyke, diferenţele sunt tot mai greu de făcut.

„O realizare formidabilă! Fără tăgadă, Raisin a creat o lume nouă, cea în care vieţuieşte doar Marsdyke.” – Joshua Ferris

IN STRAINATATE: THE WATCHERS SERIES DE VERONICA WOLFF

Now, she’s whisked away to a mysterious island and pitted against other female recruits to become a Watcher-girls who are partnered with vampires and assist them in their missions. To survive and become a Watcher, Annelise has to beat out every other girl, but she’s determined to do so, because to fail doesn’t mean dishonor-it means death.

 

Vampire’s Kiss (The Watchers #2)

As someone who has survived her first year as an Acari recruit, Drew’s ultimate goal is to become a Watcher and be paired up with a Vampire agent. Except nothing is as it seems. The vampire Alcántara is as sinister as he is sexy, Ronan is more distant than ever, and it turns out there are other vampires out there. Bad ones.

But when their vampire prisoner turns out to be a gorgeous bad boy, Drew’s first mission quickly turns into more than she bargained for…

WISHLIST (1): BIRTHMARKED DE CARAGH M.O’BRIEN

In the future, in a world baked dry by the harsh sun, there are those who live inside the walled Enclave and those, like sixteen-year-old Gaia Stone, who live outside. Following in her mother’s footsteps Gaia has become a midwife, delivering babies in the world outside the wall and handing a quota over to be „advanced” into the privileged society of the Enclave. Gaia has always believed this is her duty, until the night her mother and father are arrested by the very people they so loyally serve.

Now Gaia is forced to question everything she has been taught, but her choice is simple: enter the world of the Enclave to rescue her parents, or die trying.

A stunning adventure brought to life by a memorable heroine, this dystopian debut will have readers racing all the way to the dramatic finish.
