Foreign Books Challenge 1

 Andrei de pe blogul Heaven4books a demarat un proiect frumos numit Foreign Books Challenge
Mai jos veţi vedea despre ce este vorba.

“Ce ziceti de un proiect pe mai multe bloguri care sa se numeasca:”Foreign Books Challenge”?M-am gandit ca blogurile care vor sa participe sa selecteze cate 10 carti din strainatate a caror drepturi sa nu fi fost achizitonate in Romania.Perioada de desfasurare o vom stabili ulterior in functie de numarul blogurilor participante.Putem convinge astfel editurile din Romania sa achizitioneze cele trei carti finaliste.Va place ideea?”
 Cu totii asteptati acum mai multe detalii si in aceasta postare,promit sa vi le dau pe toate.Mai jos este bannerul proiectului,pe care v-as ruga sa-l puneti la inceputul fiecarei postari
Create your own banner at!

Scopul proiectului:
 Proiectul are scopul de a atrage atentia editurilor asupra gusturilor in materie de literatura a cititorilor din Romania.Mi-am propus ca in cele cateva luni in care se va organiza proiectul sa facem impreuna o adevarata munca de redactie.Cele mai interesante,captivante si frumoase carti vor fi alese de voi cititorii blogurilor participante si de administratorii acestor bloguri.Doar voi puteti decide care este cea mai asteptata carte in Romania!

Detalii despre desfasurare:

 In aceasta saptamana si in urmatoarea,vor incepe simultan pe 5 bloguri propuneri pentru lista de 10 carti.Cinci dintre cele 10 carti vor fi alese de administratorul blogului,urmand ca celelalte cinci sa fie alese de comentatorii blogului(primele cinci recomandari de carti printr-un comentariu-nu anonim-se iau in considerare).Daca nu comenteaza nimeni,asta e.Adminsitratorul alege toate cartile.
 Initial,m-am gandit ca preselectiile sa dureze 4 saptamani,dar trebuie sa fie un proiect interesant si frapant asa ca va voi ruga ca in doua zile  sa incercati sa alegeti 10 carti.In functie de ordinea in care v-ati inscris blogurile va voi programa-ca sa zic asa.Sper sa nu va deranjeze ca vreau ca aceasta etapa sa se desfasoare foarte repede.Puteti sa-mi spuneti daca nu va place ordinea in care v-am pus.Sunt dispus sa fac modificari!


In functie de numarul de carti voi stabili si numarul galelor.Teoretic ar trebui sa se stranga 240 de carti,dar sunt sigur ca unele se vor repeta.Ca principiu,cu fiecare gala veti putea vota favoritele voastre pe care sa le treceti in urmatoarea gala.De la gala la gala,numarul cartilor se vor injumatati,dar veti avea ocazia sa salvati cateva de la eliminare
  Ultima gala se va numi-Booktip si va dura 2 saptamani.In aceste doua saptamani veti face recenzii,interviuri,concursuri, posturi cu cartile favorite/autorii cartilor favorite.(nu e obligatoriu!!!)


Toate cartile ajunse in semifinale vor primi cel putin cate trei recenzii.De asemenea,vom posta si recenziile pozitive/negative ale acestor carti de pe siteul Goodreads

O singura carte castiga,dar ambele carti ajunse in finala vor fi aduse in atentia editurilor din Romania.

Articol preluat de pe Heaven4books

Ok, dragi mei, eu acuma am să propun 5 cărţi care doresc să fie publicate în România şi voi aveţi dreptul să propuneţi o carte lăsând un comentariu.  Deci propunerile din primele 5 comentarii vor ajunge pe listă. Vă rog să propuneţi cărţi diferite.

Şi acum cărţile pe care le propun sunt:

Glamorous Illusions (Grand Tour Series #1)

 When Cora Kensington learns she is the illegitimate daughter of a copper king, her life changes forever. Even as she explores Europe with her new family, she discovers that the most valuable journey is within. The first book in the Grand Tour series takes you from the farms of Montana through England and France on an adventure of forgiveness, spiritual awakening, and self-discovery.






 Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children 

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (Miss Peregrine #1) A mysterious island. An abandoned orphanage. A strange collection of very curious photographs. Fiction is based on real black and white photographs. The death of grandfather Abe sends sixteen-year-old Jacob journeying to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he discovers the crumbling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and explores abandoned bedrooms and hallways. The children may still live.






Dare Me 

Dare MeAddy Hanlon has always been Beth Cassidy’s best friend and trusted lieutenant. Beth calls the shots and Addy carries them out, a long-established order of things that has brought them to the pinnacle of their high-school careers. Now they’re seniors who rule the intensely competitive cheer squad, feared and followed by the other girls — until the young new coach arrives.

Cool and commanding, an emissary from the adult world just beyond their reach, Coach Colette French draws Addy and the other cheerleaders into her life. Only Beth, unsettled by the new regime, remains outside Coach’s golden circle, waging a subtle but vicious campaign to regain her position as “top girl” — both with the team and with Addy herself.

Then a suicide focuses a police investigation on Coach and her squad. After the first wave of shock and grief, Addy tries to uncover the truth behind the death — and learns that the boundary between loyalty and love can be dangerous terrain.

The raw passions of girlhood are brought to life in this taut, unflinching exploration of friendship, ambition, and power. Award-winning novelist Megan Abbott, writing with what Tom Perrotta has hailed as “total authority and an almost desperate intensity,” provides a harrowing glimpse into the dark heart of the all-American girl.

So Close to You

So Close to You (So Close to You, #1)Lydia Bentley has heard stories about the Montauk Project all her life: stories about the strange things that took place at the abandoned military base near her home and the people who’ve disappeared over the years. Stories about people like her own great-grandfather.

When Lydia stumbles into a portal that transports her to a dangerous and strange new reality, she discovers that all the stories she’s ever heard about the Montauk Project are true, and that she’s in the middle of one of the most dangerous experiments in history.

Alongside a darkly mysterious boy she is wary to trust, Lydia begins to unravel the secrets surrounding the Project. But the truths behind these secrets force her to question all her choices–and if Lydia chooses wrong, she might not save her family but destroy them . . . and herself.


Veil of Pearls 

Veil of PearlsShe thought she could outrun her past…

It is 1811, and the prosperous port city of Charleston is bustling with plantation owners, slaves and immigrants. Immigrants such as the raven-haired Adalia Winston. But Adalia has a secret: her light skin belies that she is part black and a runaway slave from Barbados. Skilled in herbal remedies, Adalia finds employment with a local doctor and settles into her quiet life, thankful for her freedom but still fearful that her owner will find her.

Born into one of Charleston’s prominent families, Morgan Rutledge is handsome, bored—and enamored of the beautiful Adalia, who spurns his advances. Morgan’s persistence, however, finally wins, and Adalia is swept into the glamorous world of Charleston high society.

But Adalia’s new life comes at a high price—that of denying her heritage and her zeal for God. How far is she willing to go to win the heart of the man she loves? And when her secret is revealed, will that love be enough, or will the truth ruin Morgan and send Adalia back into slavery?
