Cover Reveal! Metaltown by Kristen Simmons




Synopsis:
Metaltown, where factories rule, food is scarce, and hope is in short supply.

The rules of Metaltown are simple: Work hard, keep your head down, and watch your back. You look out for number one, and no one knows that better than Ty. She’s been surviving on the factory line as long as she can remember. But now Ty has Colin. She’s no longer alone; it’s the two of them against the world. That’s something even a town this brutal can’t take away from her. Until it does.

Lena’s future depends on her family’s factory, a beast that demands a ruthless master, and Lena is prepared to be as ruthless as it takes if it means finally proving herself to her father. But when a chance encounter with Colin, a dreamer despite his circumstances, exposes Lena to the consequences of her actions, she’ll risk everything to do what’s right.

In Lena, Ty sees an heiress with a chip on her shoulder. Colin sees something more. In a world of disease and war, tragedy and betrayal, allies and enemies, all three of them must learn that challenging what they thought was true can change all the rules.

An enthralling story of friendship and rebellion, Metaltown will have you believing in the power of hope.



Kristen Simmons is the author of the ARTICLE 5 series, THE GLASS ARROW, and the upcoming METALTOWN (Tor Teen). She loves her family, Jazzercise, and chocolate cupcakes. She currently lives in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Book Tour: Excerpt and Giveaway for Ink & Lies by S.L. Jenning



Synopsis:
From International Best Selling Romance Novelist, Hope Hughes, comes a gripping, heartfelt tale of two lovers, fighting for the freedom to…

No. Scratch that. Too cheesy.

…two people, torn apart by the tumultuous tides of life, only to discover refuge in…

WTF? What does that even mean? DELETE.

…two people, confused as shit as to where they should be and who they should love and none of this means a damn thing because it’s all lies!

Lies.
I’m not Hope Hughes. I’m not some fierce woman romance machine. Hell, I’m not even a woman.
I’m a liar.
And while I refuse to believe my own BS, deceit masked in heartfelt phrases of love and devotion, I want to make herbelieve them. Because maybe—just maybe—if she can find the soul within my words, she’ll also be able to find the truth scribbled on my heart.
You see, I once lived for the perfect plot twist.
I just never expected to actually live it.
This is my story. Well, maybe her story. I just wish I could make it our story.
The one I’m still writing.



“Yeah, but…” Her eyes grow wide and glossy as she tries to sift through all the reasons why that theory shouldn’t apply to her. In the end, she relies on her heart. “You said I wasn’t like those other women…that those other women weren’t me.”

I should tell her she’s right. I should put her out of her misery and reassure her that the last ten years were as real and meaningful to me as they were for her. That even though I may sling gift-wrapped bullshit for the general public, only she knows the true, honest parts of my heart. But with my tongue possessed by the taste of her rejection, I play the petty card, and do just the opposite.

“I guess I was wrong, especially considering yesterday’s events. Maybe you’re no different from them. And maybe you were right about me…that I do sabotage with sex to keep people at arm’s length. Because in the end, that’s all I want anyway, right?”

“You don’t mean that.”

I nod. “Yeah. I do.”

“So what are you saying?” The hurt is so thick in her throat that I can barely hear the words.

I suck in a breath, and scrub a hand over my forehead. “You were right about me. About us. We shouldn’t have done…what we did. And we can’t move on and pretend that it didn’t change us. What’s done is done.”

“I agree,” she nods, with a tinge of hope in her voice.

“So, maybe we should just see this for what it is—the end. You’re starting your life with Joshua and moving away, and I’m going on with mine.”

“Wait, August. No, that’s not—”

“You didn’t actually think we’d be able to keep this up, did you? What, you thought we’d turn out to be the modern day Cathy and Heathcliff? I’m not some swoony, literary hero, Fi. I’m not here to rescue you from your shitty love life that stems from your shitty childhood.”

“I never said you were—”

I’m rambling, spewing verbal diarrhea all over her blue cashmere, but I can’t stop. I can’t shut off the bile that has been choking me since this morning when she disclosed her impending nuptials. “You have Joshua. He’s the one you chose. He’s the one you want. You made that perfectly clear. So what the fuck do you need with me?”

“I thought we were friends, August. I thought you and me were—”

“Well, I guess you were wrong. Friends don’t fuck each other and then five minutes later get engaged. And why would you want to be friends with some empty, misogynistic prick like me anyway?”

“I-I didn’t mean,” her voice cracks, and the first tear escapes. She quickly dashes it away, refusing to let me play witness to her weakness. But I’ve already seen it. I share that very same weakness that has her bottom lip trembling. I’m just too much of a coward to show it.

“Look, I’m sorry. I think we just need a break.”

“A break. Yes,” she nods, dashing away tears. “You’re right. We both said things we shouldn’t have. Let’s just take a few days to…”

“No. A break from this,” I clarify, gesturing between us. “From us. This isn’t working anymore.”

“You’re being melodramatic, August. We’ve had fights before. We’ve said things we didn’t mean, and we always were able to work it out.”

I shake my head and look away, refusing to acknowledge the dejection on her face. “But I meant everything I said.”

Recenzie! Harry Potter si piatra filosofala de J.K. Rowling



„Hogwarts va fi mereu aici să-ţi ureze bun-venit.“ - J.K. Rowling

„Cărţile Harry Potter au o calitate rar întâlnită: sunt adorate de părinţi şi de copii deopotrivă.“ - Daily Telegraph

„Aventurile lui Harry Potter sunt la fel de amuzante ca poveştile lui Roald Dahl şi la fel de pline de viaţă ca volumele seriei Narnia.“ - Daily Mail

„J.K. Rowling a format o întreagă generaţie de cititori.“ - The Times

„Dacă în copilărie aş fi avut acces la cărţile cu Harry Potter, sunt convins că nu doar copilăria, ci şi tinereţea, maturitatea şi bătrâneţea mea ar fi arătat altfel.“ - Florin Bican, traducător în limba română al primului volum din seria Harry Potter

În primul rând, mulțumesc librăriei online Libris pentru această carte. Pe site-ul lor puteți găsi atât cărți în română, cât și cărți în engleză.

Parerea mea:

E atat de greu sa descrii o carte pe care o iubesti! Cu atat mai greu, cu cat Harry Potter si Piatra filosofala este cartea care m-a impins pe usa pe care scria "Bookaholic in devenire, tratament innexistent".

Sunt mai bine de 10 ani de cand am citit prima data acest volum, dar de atunci l-am deschis, rasfoit si recitit de peste 20 de ori. Primul exemplar din biblioteca mea, primit in dar de la Teo, prietena mea cea mai buna, pe vremea cand aveam 12 ani, aproape s-a dezintegrat. Este plin de banda adeziva, dar il pastrez asa si il pretuiesc, indiferent de starea in care se afla.

De curand, am reusit sa pun gherutele pe noua, stralucitoarea si cartonata varianta Harry Potter, cea aparuta la editura Arthur, cu sprijinul prietenilor nostri de la libraria online Libris.

In ciuda miilor de comentarii negative, pe care le-am citit pe net despre aceasta editie, am incercat sa o primesc cu inima deschisa, pentru ca povestea nu s-a modificat cu nimic, asa cum era si normal, ci avem parte doar de o noua traducere.

Il cunoastem pe acelasi Harry, in pragul varstei de 11 ani, care locuieste cu unchiul, matusa si varul sau. Asta pana primeste o scrisoare, in care este invitat sa studieze la Hogwarts, Scoala de farmece si vrajitorii. Echipat cu cele necesare pentru noua scoala, Harry se urca in Expresul de Hogwarts, fara sa stie ca de acolo va incepe marea aventura a vietii lui. Cea in care se va descoperi pe sine, isi va face prieteni de nadejde, dar va invata si multe lucuri uimitoare despre lumea magica din care face parte.

Aceasta noua traducere aduce cateva mici modificari ale termenilor folositi. Fiind unul dintre fanii care a crescut odata cu aceasta serie si care stie pe dinafara citate si replici din ea, am simtit, la inceput, un mic disconfort. De exemplu, denumirea de "Incuiat", folosita de vrajitori atunci cand vorbesc despre o persoana fara puteri magice, a fost schimbata in traducerea cuvantului "Muggle", folosit de autoare in textul original, si a devenit "Mageamiu"; "Vajhat" a ramas pur si simplu "Quidditch", adica varianta originala a cuvantului; Aleea Diagon este acum Aleea Tor, un joc de cuvinte potrivit, pe care l-am apreciat si chiar m-a amuzat.

Pentru "veterani", consider ca aceasta editie merita adaugata la colectia Harry Potter. Noilor veniti nu pot decat sa le-o recomand cu caldura, pentru ca este cea mai buna serie pe care am citit-o.


Lectura placuta si sa aveti intotdeauna bagheta la indemana! Pericolul pandeste la fiecare colt.

Release Day! STARDUST DESTINY by Nazarea Andrews


The face that launched a thousand ships...

I grew up knowing my destiny. Daddy pounded it in my head, my brother repeated it every day of my life. I was the only daughter of the Orsi crime syndicate, the pretty prize that would bring peace. My one job was to marry Callum Sheehan, the vicious head of the Irish mob in Chicago. 
I never questioned my future–until I saw him.

The man who was never meant to love her…

I wasn’t going to the wedding. It’s shit that my brother does, things our father requires of the heir of the Sosa cartel. Not me. I’m the black sheep, the one Mama spoiled, and my father loves, but without the pressure of expectation. But Sheehan is too big a deal for me to blow off.
And then I see her.

The love that started a war…

She isn’t mine. She will never be mine. I watch her fall apart when she thinks no one is watching. I watch her marry another man. I watch her bravery. And I don’t care who she belongs to or that it will start a war between our families.
I will damn us both to possess her, and burn down the world to keep her.

A modern erotic retelling of Helen of Troy, and the epic love that brought an empire to its knees.

NINE LIVES/NOUĂ VIEȚI din 26 august in cinema, distribuit de Ro Image 2000 și Prorom Distribution!


În NOUĂ VIEȚI Kevin Spacey e mr. Fuzzypants, motan fără voie!

Regizat de Barry Sonnenfeld, responsabil pentru seria Men In Black, filmul îi mai are în distribuție, alături de Kevin Spacey, pe Christopher Walken, Jennifer Garner, Cheryl Hines, Robbie Amell, și ne avertizează că, atunci cînd vrei să faci un cadou cuiva drag, cel mai bine e să pui suflet, altfel riști să-ți pierzi tu sufletul, așa cum o pățește Kevin Spacey când, simțindu-se vinovat că stă mai mult la birou decât cu familia sa, decide să-i ia fiicei sale cadoul pe care aceasta și-l dorea de câțiva ani – o pisică. Presat de timp, ajunge la singurul pet shop deschis, care, însă, nu e unul magic, așa că nici pisica pe care o cumpără de acolo nu va fi una obișnuită. În drum spre petrecerea fiicei sale are un accident și, când își vine în fire, mai să și-o piardă din nou: se trezește prins în corpul pisicii de la magazinul magic de animale de companie! Oare va reuși să redevină afaceristul fără sentimente, cum era înainte de “transformare”? Sau viața îi dă o lecție și îl ține captiv în pufoșenia pe care toată familia lui o va îndrăgi, mai puțin el, care ura pisicile, până ce va deveni un om mai bun?

Aflăm din 26 august, la cinema!
