Τα βιβλία που ανακάλυψα και σου προτείνω γι’ αυτήν τη βδομάδα είναι τα εξής:
Dear Future Reader,
If you’re reading this book, it’s either:
1. You’re my future partner
2. I’m famous and my writings have been immortalized
3. You’ve violated my privacy and these are not meant for you
Let’s hope it’s not the last one. Before this year, I had my life all planned out. This book contains the story of the year that changed my life (well, my life so far). It’s the year I learned how to be invincible. That wasn’t really specific, but I guess you have to read on to see what I’m talking about.
Το επόμενο βιβλίο δεν έχει καμία σχέση με το πρώτο. Το ανακάλυψα μέσω μιας booktuber που παρακολουθώ και μου φάνηκε πολύ ενδιαφέρον και διασκεδαστικό. Το βιβλίο αποτελεί το πρώτο μέρος μιας τριλογίας.
Now in paperback, Tony DiTerlizzi’s New York Timesbestselling, richly illustrated modern classic.
When a marauder destroys the underground sanctuary that Eva Nine was raised in by the robot Muthr, the twelve-year-old girl is forced to flee aboveground. Eva Nine is searching for anyone else like her: She knows that other humans exist because of an item she treasures—a scrap of cardboard on which is depicted a young girl, an adult, and a robot, with the strange word, “WondLa.”
Breathtaking two-color illustrations throughout display another dimension of the tale, and readers with webcams can also view Augmented Reality that reveals additional information about Eva Nine’s world. Tony DiTerlizzi honors traditional children’s literature in this totally original space-age adventure—one that is as complex as an alien planet, but as simple as a child’s wish for a place to belong.
Το λάτρεψα από τότε που είδα το εξώφυλλο και διάβασα τον τίτλο του. Θέλω πολύ να το διαβάσω και λογικά θα το κάνω σύντομα.
It’s the accident season, the same time every year. Bones break, skin tears, bruises bloom.
The accident season has been part of seventeen-year-old Cara’s life for as long as she can remember. Towards the end of October, foreshadowed by the deaths of many relatives before them, Cara’s family becomes inexplicably accident-prone. They banish knives to locked drawers, cover sharp table edges with padding, switch off electrical items – but injuries follow wherever they go, and the accident season becomes an ever-growing obsession and fear.
But why are they so cursed? And how can they break free?
