Cramathon + TBR

Readathony alebo po slovensky povedané maratóny v čítaní sú v internetovej komunite čitateľov veľmi populárne. Za daný počet dní sa snažíte prečítať čo najviac a väčšinou si knihy vyberáte na základe nejakých kritérií, ktoré zadáva tvorca daného readathonu. Už dlho som sa chcela do nejakého zapojiť, no nikdy sa mi to z nejakého dôvodu nepodarilo a vlastne ani netuším, či je to niečo pre mňa. Nedávno som však narazila na toto video od Aprilius Maximus a readathon zvaný CramAThon ma celkom zaujal.

Novembrové zúčtovanie

Napriek tomu, že som v novembri neprechádzala žiadnou krízou a čítala som takmer každý deň, moje zúčtovanie za tento mesiac je tak trochu úbohé. Pocítiť ste to mohli aj na veľmi sporadických príspevkoch na mojom blogu. Veľmi však dúfam, že sa mi to v decembri podarí napraviť, keďže mám na pláne nejaké kratšie a dúfam že aj rýchlejšie knižky.

Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But he can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

Počet strán: 418
Rok vydania: 2013
Anotácia: "A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

Septembrové zúčtovanie

September vyzerá, čo sa počtu dokončených kníh týka, ako celkom úspešný mesiac. Bohužiaľ nie zo všetkých prečítaných kníh som bola tak nadšená, ako by som chcela byť. Zvládla som si však aspoň pozrieť dva filmy, no aj tak sa k môjmu cieľu (15 filmov za rok) nepribližuje veľmi rýchlo.

Minirecenzie 2.0

Keďže mám na svojom zozname ešte stále pár kníh o ktoré sa s vami chcem podeliť, no z nejakého dôvodu si ich už detailne nepamätám alebo o nich nemám veľa čo povedať, rozhodla som sa priniesť ďalšiu várku minirecenzií. Tento krát pôjde o zmes autorov aj žánrov.

Torn - Cat Clarke
Táto kniha ma zaujala už od úplne prvého momentu, kedy som o nej počula. Na školskom výlete jedno z dievčat záhadne zmizne a zomrie. Iba malá skupinka jej spolužiačok vie, čo sa skutočne stalo. Tento jemne desivý príbeh mal podľa mňa veľký potenciál, ale bohužiaľ ma nenadchol tak veľmi, ako som dúfala. Predpokladala som, že sa hlavná záhada bude riešiť celú knihu a až na konci sa všetko vysvetlí. V skutočnosti sme sa však všetko dozvedeli už asi v polovici knihy a zvyšok bol iba o tom, ako sa s tým jednotlivé dievčatá vysporiadavali. Napriek tomu však bol koniec trochu prirýchli a otvorený. Jednoducho to nebolo to, čo som od tejto knihy čakala a to ma sklamalo. Ale samotný dej sa mi stále páčil a ak sa necítite na poriadne strašidelné thrillery no chcete to tohto žánru trochu načrieť, táto kniha by mohla byť dobrým medzimostíkom.

Augustové zúčtovanie

Posledný letný mesiac pre mňa nebol, čo sa týka čítania, taký úspešný ako by som chcela. Toto sa tu už však začína opakovať pravidelne, takže prázdniny môjmu čítaniu asi skôr škodia ako pomáhajú. Uvidíme ako sa to vyvinie v budúcnosti.

Počet strán: 384
Rok vydania: 2016
Anotácia: Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He's also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle's complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan - her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

This book contains graphic scenes and very sensitive subject matter.

A job in a clothes boutique introduces Auden to the world of girls: their talk, their friendship, their crushes. She missed out on all that, too busy being the perfect daughter to her demanding mother. Then she meets Eli, an intriguing loner and a fellow insomniac who becomes her guide to the nocturnal world of the town. Together they embark on parallel quests: for Auden, to experience the carefree teenage life she’s been denied; for Eli, to come to terms with the guilt he feels for the death of a friend.

In her signature pitch-perfect style, Sarah Dessen explores the hearts of two lonely people learning to connect.

TAG - Ja knižný recenzent

Keď som tento TAG od walletofinfinity videla po prvý krát, hneď ma zaujal. Premýšľala som, že ho spravím keď budem mať s blogovaním o knihách a s písaním recenzií trochu viac skúseností. Teraz som sa však rozhodla, že možno nie je na zahodenie tento TAG spraviť aj teraz a ak sa rozhodnem ho v budúcnosti spraviť znova, budem aspoň vedieť porovnať ako sa moje blogovanie vyvíjalo.

Série, ktoré nedokončím

Keď som prvý krát rozmýšľala nad týmto článkom, tak ma skoro žiadne série, ktoré nemám v pláne dokončiť nenapadali. Preferujem väčšinou samostatné knižky, kde nemusím čakať na pokračovanie alebo jednému príbehu venovať veľmi veľa času. Je predsa toľko rôznych kníh, cez ktoré sa chcem dostať. Ale čím dlhšie som nad týmto rozmýšľala, tým viac nedokončených sérií mi napadlo. Na kopu z nich som pozabudla, lebo som si buď prečítala iba jednu knihu alebo som ich čítala už dosť dávno a ani netuším, koľko kníh zo série mám vlastne prečítaných.

The Princess Diaries (goodreads)

Denníky princeznej som čítala už pred mnohými rokmi a veľmi si ich v tom čase užívala. Naša knižnica však nikdy nemala pokope všetky diely, a tak som si ich domou brala v náhodnom poradí a vôbec netuším, koľko som ich vlastne prečítala. Som si však istá, že neboli všetky. Minulý rok však po niekoľkoročnej odmlke vyšla ďalšia (a posledná?) kniha odohrávajúca sa o niekoľko rokov neskôr a zatiaľ čo veľa ľudí, ktorí predtým túto sériu čítali, je nadšených, mňa necháva chladnou. Po takom dlhom čase si totiž len matne spomínam, čo sa v jednotlivých knihách dialo a nemám záujem ich všetky čítať, len aby som túto sériu dokončila.

Anotácia: Poppy Wyatt has never felt luckier. She is about to marry her ideal man, Magnus Tavish, but in one afternoon her “happily ever after” begins to fall apart. Not only has she lost her engagement ring in a hotel fire drill but in the panic that follows, her phone is stolen. As she paces shakily around the lobby, she spots an abandoned phone in a trash can. Finders keepers! Now she can leave a number for the hotel to contact her when they find her ring. Perfect!

Well, perfect except that the phone’s owner, businessman Sam Roxton, doesn’t agree. He wants his phone back and doesn’t appreciate Poppy reading his messages and wading into his personal life.

What ensues is a hilarious and unpredictable turn of events as Poppy and Sam increasingly upend each other’s lives through emails and text messages. As Poppy juggles wedding preparations, mysterious phone calls, and hiding her left hand from Magnus and his parents . . . she soon realizes that she is in for the biggest surprise of her life.

Séria: The Infernal Devices
Diel: druhý
Počet strán: 502
Rok vydania: 2011
Anotácia: With the help of the handsome, self-destructive Will and the fiercely devoted Jem, Tessa discovers that the Magister’s war on the Shadowhunters is deeply personal. He blames them for a long-ago tragedy that shattered his life. To unravel the secrets of the past, the trio journeys from mist-shrouded Yorkshire to a manor house that holds untold horrors, from the slums of London to an enchanted ballroom where Tessa discovers that the truth of her parentage is more sinister than she had imagined. When they encounter a clockwork demon bearing a warning for Will, they realize that the Magister himself knows their every move—and that one of their own has betrayed them.

Tessa finds her heart drawn more and more to Jem, but her longing for Will, despite his dark moods, continues to unsettle her. But something is changing in Will—the wall he has built around himself is crumbling. Could finding the Magister free Will from his secrets and give Tessa the answers about who she is and what she was born to do?

As their dangerous search for the Magister and the truth leads the friends into peril, Tessa learns that when love and lies are mixed, they can corrupt even the purest heart.

Májové zúčtovanie

Spočiatku to vyzeralo, že tento mesiac bude čo sa čítania týka jedna veľká katastrofa. Nevybrala som si totiž knihy, ktoré sa čítali zrovna najrýchlejšie a kvôli testom a skúškovému som na čítanie ani nemala toľko času.

Sophie Kinsella - minirecenzie

Túto autorku som objavila už pomerne dávno, keď som ešte nenavštevovala žiadne blogy či youtube kanály zamerané na knihy. A keďže už od prečítania niektorých z týchto kníh ubehlo veľa času, nepamätám si ich tak detailne. Rozhodla som sa preto moje pocity zhrnúť aspoň do minirecenzií.

Remember me?
Toto bola prvá kniha od tejto autorky, ktorú som kedy chytila do ruky a jedna z prvých kníh, ktorú som kedy prečítala v angličtine. Lexi sa jedného dňa prebudí v nemocnici a zistí, že kvôli autonehode stratila pamäť a zabudla posledné tri toky svojho života. To sa však nejaví ako veľká tragédia, keďže keď sa zobudí, jej život vyzerá byť perfektný. Má skvelú prácu, perfektnú postavu a dokonalého manžela. Ale ako to už býva, nič nie je také perfektné, ako by sa mohlo na prvý pohľad zdať. Lexi si rýchlo začne uvedomovať, že veci nie sú tak ako vyzerajú a že so svojim novým životom nie je úplne spokojná. Snaží sa teda všetko napraviť, čo však nie je ľahké, keď jej chýbajú spomienky. Našťastie sa však nájde niekto, kto jej dokáže pomôcť. Ja osobne milujem príbehy, kde postava stratí pamäť. Na jednu stranu sú smutné, ale na druhú stranu je zaujímavé sledovať, ako dokážu zapadnúť do sveta, ktorý si nepamätajú. Od kedy som si túto knihu prečítala ubehlo už dosť času, a preto si nespomínam na veľa detailov a pocit, ktoré som pri čítaní mala, ale rozhodne viem, že som si knižku v moment jej čítania užívala a odporučila by som ju ďalej.

Knižné tipy: Letné čítanie 2016

Síce to tak vonku vždy nevyzerá, ale leto nám už pomaly klope na dvere a je čas prichystať si nejaké letné čítanie. Ja už si niekoľko týždňov hľadám nejaké ľahké romantické čítanie s nádychom leta a rozhodla som sa, že keď už všetky tieto knihy nezvládnem prečítať sama, aspoň sa s vami o ne podelím a možno vás inšpirujem.

Prvý nákup na awesomebooks.com

Snívam o tom, že raz budem mať police plné kníh. Ale keďže momentálne som iba študentka bez brigády, nákup týchto kníh je pre mňa trochu drahý špás. O to viac, že preferujem knihy v angličtine, ktoré sa u nás často zohnať nedajú a už vôbec nie lacno. Závistlivo som teda počúvala od zahraničných booktuberov o ich neskutočne lacných nákupoch na stránkach ako je napríklad thriftbooks.com, lebo keď som zbadala to poštovné k nám, od lacného to malo neskutočne ďaleko. Rozhodla som sa ale pátrať po iných stránkach, ktoré by mohli predávať knihy z druhej ruky kde by poštovné nestálo viac ako všetky knihy, ktoré si z tadiaľ chcete objednať. A tak som narazila na web awesomebooks.com

Aprílové zúčtovanie

V porovnaní s marcom bol apríl trochu úbohý. Nie som si istá, či to bolo tým, že som s knihami trochu experimentovala, tým že som lenivá alebo tým, že sa blíži koniec semestra a ja si odopieram čítanie lebo sa potrebujem viac učiť. Pravdepodobne kombinácia všetkých týchto vecí.

The Martian - Andy Weir

Autor: Andy Weir
Originálny názov: The Martian
Slovenský názov: Marťan
Počet strán: 369
Rok vydania: 2011
Anotácia: Six days ago, astronaut Mark Watney became one of the first people to walk on Mars. Now, he's sure he'll be the first person to die there. After a dust storm nearly kills him and forces his crew to evacuate while thinking him dead, Mark finds himself stranded and completely alone with no way to even signal Earth that he’s alive and even if he could get word out, his supplies would be gone long before a rescue could arrive. Chances are, though, he won't have time to starve to death. The damaged machinery, unforgiving environment, or plain-old "human error" are much more likely to kill him first.

Knižný tag

U Mell som objavila tento skvelý tag a hneď som si povedala, že ho musím mať aj na svojom blogu.

1. Máš doma určité místo pro čtení?
Väčšinou čítam v izbe pri stole. Nie je to práve najpohodlnejšie a najlepšie miesto na čítanie, ale robím tam takmer všetko. Navyše moja izba je miesto, kde môžem s najväčšou pravdepodobnosťou nájsť pokoj na čítanie.

2. Záložka nebo náhodný kus papíru?
Ak ku knihe nepríde záložka, tak je to na 99% kus papieru. Väčšinou však čítam na elektronickej čítačke, takže žiadnu fyzickú záložku ani nepotrebujem.

3. Můžeš přestat číst kdekoliv chceš nebo musíš dojít ke konci kapitoly, na konec strany a podobně?
Väčšinou sa snažím dôjsť ku koncu kapitoly alebo aspoň koncu niečoho, ale keďže väčšinou čítam vo vlaku, či kým na niečo čakám, nie vždy sa mi to podarí. Preto často knihu odložím skôr ako treba, len aby som sa uistila, že nebudem musieť prestať uprostred strany.

Ugly Love - Colleen Hoover

Autor: Colleen Hoover
Originálny názov: Ugly Love
Slovenský názov: Odvrátená tvár lásky
Počet strán: 337
Rok vydania: 2014
Anotácia: When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she knows it isn’t love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Never ask about the past.
Don’t expect a future.

They think they can handle it, but realize almost immediately they can’t handle it at all.

Hearts get infiltrated.
Promises get broken.
Rules get shattered.
Love gets ugly.

August Pullman wants to be an ordinary ten-year-old. He does ordinary things. He eats ice cream. He plays on his Xbox. He feels ordinary - inside.

But Auggie is far from ordinary. Ordinary kids don't make other ordinary kids run away screaming in playgrounds. Ordinary kids don't get stared at wherever they go.

Born with a terrible facial abnormality, Auggie has been home-schooled by his parents his whole life, in an attempt to protect him from the cruelty of the outside world. Now, for the first time, he's being sent to a real school - and he's dreading it. All he wants is to be accepted - but can he convince his new classmates that he's just like them, underneath it all?

Narrated by Auggie and the people around him whose lives he touches forever, Wonder is a funny, frank, astonishingly moving debut to read in one sitting, pass on to others, and remember long after the final page.

Marcové zúčtovanie

Čo sa týka čítania, marec bola pre mňa, najmä vďaka výberu kníh a Veľkonočným sviatkom, nadmieru úspešný. Už si ani nepamätám, kedy som naposledy prečítala 5 kníh za jeden mesiac. Avšak s pozeraním filmov to bolo v marci ešte úbohejšie ako po minulé mesiace. Snáď sa v apríli trochu polepším.

Fairest & Stars Above - Marissa Meyer

Svoju lásku k The Lunar Chronicles som na tomto blogu už myslím vyjadrila dosť jasne. Nemohla by som sa však považovať za správneho fanúšika keby som opomenula aj "doplnkové" knihy patriace k tejto sérii. A keďže sú obe celkom krátke, rozhodla som sa ich spojiť do jedného článku.

Originálny názov: Attachments
Počet strán: 323
Rok vydania: 2011
Anotácia: "Hi, I'm the guy who reads your e-mail, and also, I love you . . . "
Beth Fremont and Jennifer Scribner-Snyder know that somebody is monitoring their work e-mail. (Everybody in the newsroom knows. It's company policy.) But they can't quite bring themselves to take it seriously. They go on sending each other endless and endlessly hilarious e-mails, discussing every aspect of their personal lives.

Meanwhile, Lincoln O'Neill can't believe this is his job now- reading other people's e-mail. When he applied to be "internet security officer," he pictured himself building firewalls and crushing hackers- not writing up a report every time a sports reporter forwards a dirty joke.

When Lincoln comes across Beth's and Jennifer's messages, he knows he should turn them in. But he can't help being entertained-and captivated-by their stories.

By the time Lincoln realizes he's falling for Beth, it's way too late to introduce himself.

What would he say . . . ?

The magnitude of his past threatens to destroy everything important to Auburn, and the only way to get her life back on track is to cut Owen out of it.
