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.

Wonder - R. J. Palacio

Autor: R. J. Palacio
Originálny názov: Wonder
Slovenský názov: Obyčajná tvár
Počet strán: 315
Rok vydania: 2013
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.
