Oggi torno con un post random che inaugura una nuova rubrica: la WHAT'S ON MY WISHLIST, aka WOMWL. Non tento più di giustificarmi: gli impegni mi hanno letteralmente assalita, inoltre la mia connessione ad internet è stata scadente..
Esattamente, cosa desidero ardentemente di possedere? Ecco a voi il primo numero di una lunga serie..
ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS
"Anna is less than thrilled to be shipped off to boarding school in Paris, leaving a fledgling romance behind - until she meets Etienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Etienne has it all...including a girlfriend. But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with a longed-for French kiss?"
LOLA AND THE BOY NEXT DOOR
"Budding designer Lola has an outrageous sense of style, a hot rocker boyfriend and big plans for the future. Everything is perfect - until Cricket Bell returns to the neighbourhood. When he steps back into her world, Lola must reconcile a lifetime of feelings for the boy next door. And perhaps discover that true love can be closer than you think."
ISLA AND THE HAPPILY EVER AFTER
"The cafe is boiling. The atmosphere is clouded with bittersweet coffee. Three years of desire rip through my body and burst from my lips: "Josh!" His head jolts up. For a long time, a very long time, he just stares at me. And then...he blinks. "Isla?" Hopeless romantic Isla has had a crush on brooding artist Josh since their first year at the School of America in Paris. And, after a chance encounter in Manhattan over the summer break, romance might be closer than Isla imagined. But as they begin their senior year back in France, Isla and Josh are forced to face uncertainty about their futures, and the very real possibility of being apart. Set against the stunning backdrops of New York, Paris and Barcelona, this is a gorgeous, heart-wrenching and irresistible story of true love, and the perfect conclusion to Stephanie Perkins's beloved series."
Non lanciatemi i pomodori! Scusatemi, ma ho sempre voluto leggerla in inglese quindi ho evitato anche di comprarla in italiano (Anna e Lola già pubblicati dalla DeAgostini).
"Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan, but for Cath, being a fan is her life-and she's really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it's what got them through their mother leaving.Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.Cath's sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can't let go. She doesn't want to. Now that they're going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn't want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She's got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words . . . And she can't stop worrying about her dad, who's loving and fragile and has never really been alone.For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?"
Questo, invece, è inedito in Italia. L'edizione è una di quelle limited edition e ragazzi miei, per favore, compratemela! çwç
THE WRATH AND THE DAWN
"Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi's wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch...she's falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend. She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all."
Questo è uscito il 4/02 per la NewtonCompton e ha già riscosso un grandioso successo!
SINCE YOU'BEEN GONE
"Emily's best friend Sloane disappears, almost without a trace - the only thing left behind is a to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that wallflower Emily wouldn't normally do, and definitely not without her best friend. But what if completing the list could bring Sloane back? Dance Until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a stranger? Um ...Go skinny dipping? Wait ...what? Emily only has the summer to check everything off Sloane's list. The question is, what will she find at the end of it?"
Questo è uscito invece l'11/02 e mi sembra di vederlo ovunque, tranne che nelle mie mani.
La casualità del post vi dimostra quante idee io abbia. Ovvero pari a zero.
Presto vi mostrerò il book haul del mese di Gennaio.
A presto! <3
