30 martie 2 Comments
All her world’s a stage. Bertie Shakespeare Smith is not an actress, yet she lives in a theater. She’s not an orphan, but she has no parents. She knows every part, but she has no lines of her own. That is, until now.
Enter Stage Right
NATE. Dashing pirate. Will do anything to protect Bertie.
COBWEB, MOTH, MUSTARD SEED, and PEASEBLOSSOM. Four tiny and incredibly annoying fairies. BERTIE’S sidekicks.
ARIEL. Seductive air spirit and Bertie’s weakness. The symbol of impending doom.
BERTIE. Our heroine.
Welcome to the Théâtre Illuminata, where the actors of every play ever written can be found behind the curtain. They were born to play their parts, and are bound to the Théâtre by The Book—an ancient and magical tome of scripts. Bertie is not one of them, but they are her family—and she is about to lose them all and the only home she has ever known.

vanilla-rating-4-stars


"Eyes Like Stars" has grabbed my attention almost an year ago, when I got my Kindle. The title, the cover, the plot... they all intrigued me. I added the book to my to-be-read pile, and forgot about it... until now. What made me remember was taking part in a Paranormal Reading Challenge that required reading a book with Fae for the month of March. And so I realised there was a Faery book I really wanted to read for a long time.

I must admit I was very confused at the beggining of this book. Though I knew what it was about, it took me a chapter or two to realise that the Players were all the actual characters from plays, with Bertie being the only one who didn't truly belong... or so it seemed.

I really missed reading about a character as unique as Bertie was. Her imagination and rebelious attitude, combined with her smart lines and her sense of humour made her a very realistic character, one easy to like.

I found the dialogues very well written, at times hilarious,


“You didn't just write the play, Bertie," Peaseblossom said suddenly. "You ordered the Players about, shouted, and threw an artistic hissy fit. Do you know what that makes you?"
"A temperamental fusspot?" Mustardseed guessed.
"Crazier than a bag full of crazy?" Moth said.
"Close," Peaseblossom said. "It makes her a Director.”


...but inspirational and touching at the right moment.


“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves.”


Though I'm tired of finding love triangles in so many books lately, the one in this book is so subtle and realistic, that I couldn't not enjoy it. Nate (the pirate) is a funny character, and I cheered for him most of the time, while Ariel (from Shakespeare's "Tempest") is charming and seductive, and at times very annoying.

The faeries (from A Midsummer Night's Dream) were a cute addition to the story. I found their role in the story quite interesting, and I couldn't help being amused by their hilarious behaviour, and touched by their loialty to Bertie.

The story is unique, full of interesting ideas, none of which I would've thought of. Just when I thought I had it all figured out, boom! - a surprise is thrown at me.

This goes without saying on my favourites shelf, and as much as I would've loved to give it a 5-vanilla-flower rating, I am forced to take one out due to the confusing parts. I'm definitely reading the sequel as soon as I can, as I must find out what happens to Bertie, Nate, Ariel and the faeries.

I recommend this book to those in search of something different.

I used to cry quite often when I was reading, but lately I haven't discovered many emotional books. However, one of the most emotional scenes I've ever read in a book was actually the ending of "Notes from Ghost Town" by Kate Ellison, and I've read this at the beggining of February. If I have to be honest, a lot of scenes from that book touched me, but it's the ending that brought me to tears. I would love to describe what exactly happened, but I don't want to spoil the book for you. If you're interested, please read my review of it.

Recenzie: Şapte poveşti de dragoste

23 martie 0 Comments
La Sankt Petersburg, la Viena, în Corsica, la Veneția, în mlaștinile sălbatice ale Angliei rurale sau aproape oriunde, dragostea se ascunde în gesturi, în sertare, în scrisori… Ea este peste tot și are chipuri infinite. În ținuturile imaginare ale literaturii, dragostea domnește ca o divinitate pe jumătate blândă, pe jumătate fioroasă. Toți scriitorii și toți cititorii o visează dintotdeauna.Șapte povești de dragoste este un volum care aduce la lumină bijuterii fără vârstă din secolul al XIX-lea, șlefuite de F.M. Dostoievski, Edgar Allan Poe, Oscar Wilde, Guy de Maupassant, Stefan Zweig și alți scriitori care cuceresc cititorul de oricând și de oriunde.

Gen: clasic, roman de ragoste

Număr de pagini: 208

Data apariţiei: februarie 2013 la Editura Nemira

Recenzie

vanilla-rating-4-stars

 

Îndrăgind poveştile scurte şi vrând totodată să citesc şi ceva din literatura clasică, am cumpărat această carte în urmă cu câteva săptămâni, mai ales că era o noutate la Editura Nemira şi aveam o reducere de care doream să profit. Îmi era dor să citesc poveşti de dragoste emoţionante, şi nu am fost dezamăgită.

Ce mi-ar fi plăcut, totuşi, să ştiu înainte de a o achiziţiona este că urma să fie vorba despre şapte poveşti de dragoste neîmplinită. Cu toate acestea, măiestria cu care acestea au fost scrise a îndulcit tristeţea ce m-a cuprins cu sfârşitul fiecărei povestioare. Cred că m-au impresionat cel mai mult chiar prima şi ultima, aproape până la lacrimi.

E incredibil modul în care aceşti celebri scriitori, deşi bărbaţi, cunosc atât de bine sufletul femeii (vezi "Scrisoare de la o necunoscută" de Stefan Zweig şi "Ultima iubire" de Arnold Bennett"). O treabă minunată au făcut şi traducătoarele. Având în vedere că, în original, poveştile au fost scrise în engleză, franceză germană şi rusă, este de lăudat faptul că limbajul păstrează un farmec aparte.

Majoritatea scrise la persoana I, poveştile debordează de gândurile şi sentimentele de dragoste pură ale personajelor, care iubesc necondiţionat, neaşteptând nimic în schimb. Este vorba despre acea iubire profundă, despre care unii afirmă că o simţi doar o dată în viaţă, şi care îi cuprinde pe protagoniştii celor şapte poveşti. Unii se resemnează, alţii se amăgesc sau cad în deprimare, cert e că m-am regăsit în multe dintre pasajele cărţii, pe care am citit-o pe nerăsuflate.

Cu siguranţă, o astfel de lectură e ca o gură de aer proaspăt după multele romane contemporare şi fantasy în care m-am îngropat în ultima vreme. O recomand din inimă oricui, oricând, oriunde.

vanilla-rating-2-stars


I picked this book up as it was free on Amazon. I usually like short stories, and this one was ok too, though I had higher expectations from it.


The descriptions were very detailed, and the plot intriguing, but for some reason I couldn't connect to the main characters, maybe partly because of how fast everything was happening.


There could be made a lot of improvements in how the story is developed. Why are the Faeries a danger for humanity? Why are Amy, Craig and Jay the ones who hold the responsibility of attacking them? While I'm ok with the mysterious ending, I think readers would have to know more background information to fully enjoy the story.

I don't think I've ever felt guilty for liking a book, and I see no reason why I should have. Yes, there may be a few books (like the "House of Night" series) for which I have mixed feelings (something in between like and dislike), but I've never thought "This book is so bad, yet I like it." or anything similar. I think, when it comes to reading, that people should just enjoy the act, and not stop to think whether the book deserves your attention or not. I've come across awesomely written books that I couldn't seem to like, and some who may have benefited from improvements in writing style that I've really had a good time reading. :)

Cover Re-Reveal: Autumns Storm by Lizzy Ford

22 martie 0 Comments
This week, Lizzy Ford is revealing the new cover for "Autumn Storm" (#2, Witchling Series). The series was picked up by Evatopia - a small press and books-to-TV manager specializing in teen and women's fiction - in February. The first book in the series, "Dark Summer," re-released March 1 and is available from Amazon, Amazon UK and Barnes and Noble. "Autumn Storm" has received a facelift and revision that includes integrating the novelette, "Autumn Dawn."

"Autumn Storm" will be launched on April 5. Lizzy anticipates releasing the highly anticipated third book in the series, "Winter Fire," in mid-May.
Autumn Storm_cover
A girl with no memory, hidden in plain sight. A boy with no hope, freefalling into Darkness.
Autumn doesn’t know why she remembers a boarding school she’s never visited, or why her reflection isn’t always … hers. There’s another girl in the mirror, a dark-haired ghost that emerges one night to guide her to a cliff near the school. Only Autumn can’t remember what happened there and why it’s so important. Beck’s gentle touch soothes her distress while Decker’s every look sets her body on fire. Caught between the twins, she struggles to understand her instincts and magick while working through the pain caused by a mysterious car accident that left her disabled, barely able to walk.
Unable to recover from Summer’s death, Decker slowly surrenders to the Dark. He can’t live with the pain, and those around him keep Autumn’s secret too well. The guilt he feels when he falls for her – and betrays Summer’s memory – drives him farther from the Light, until he loses control and begins taking the souls of Light witchlings. As the protector of Light, Beck must choose between confronting his twin and watching more witchlings suffer. Decker realizes Beck has come between more than him and the witchlings. With neither of them willing to let Autumn go, they turn on each other.
Only one of them knows the truth. Only one of them will walk away, unless Autumn can find a way to save them both.

Nu cred să mai fi citit vreodată o trilogie întreagă în două săptămâni. Am întârziat cu recenzia numai pentru că am fost foarte prinsă lucrând la prima mea carte. Dar asta e altă poveste, iar voi sunteţi aici ca să citiţi părerea mea despre "Rhyn's Redemption" de scriitoarea de YA Paranormal Romance Lizzy Ford.

Această ultimă carte din trilogia Rhyn ne răspunde la toate întrebările care s-au adunat de la primele două cărţi. E plină de surprize, dar şi cheia rezolvării puzzleului format de cărţile precedente. Dacă ar trebui să o rezum într-o propoziţie, aş spune că e un joc inteligent de şah între însăşi Moartea şi Darkyn, care se află într-o situaţie de tipul “câştigi sau pierzi totul”. Dar cine va da şah-mat? Aflaţi doar citind cartea. Atât de multe lucruri incredibile se întâmplă în cartea asta, că de-abia mă abţin să nu vă dau spoilere!

Daţi-mi voi să spun asta: Toby, ştiam eu că rolul tău e mult mai important decât am fost înclinaţi să credem. Îmi iubesc instinctual! Şi nu pot să vă spun cât de mult i-am adorat pe Deidre şi Gabriel în această ultimă carte. Rhyn şi Katie au fost super, ca de obicei, şi am putut simţi cât de îngrijoraţi erau unul pentru celălalt.

Oh, Lizzy Ford, cum le atragi tu atenţia cititorilor tăi! Cu o mulţime de întorsături de situaţie neaşteptate, cum să te plictiseşti? Păcălind moartea, găsind portiţe în reguli mai vechi decât timpul, acceptându-ţi destinul, dar încercând totodată să-l schimbi, cartea nu duce lipsă deloc de acţiune. Mă enervează când acest gen de cărţi se centrează prea mult pe cupluri şi chimia dintre ele, dar trilogia Rhyn era romantism exact cât trebuie. Şi nu pot spune nici că e o carte tipică pentru fete. Să găseşti echilibrul şi să adaugi exact cât trebuie din fiecare element în cărţile pentru tineri ar putea fi dificil, dar Lizzy Ford a găsit reţeta perfectă cu trilogia Rhyn!

Cartea, desigur, merge direct pe raftul meu de cărţi preferate, mai ales datorită pasiunii cu care am savurat tot ce s-a întâmplat. De la personajele enervante pe care mi-a plăcut să le detest, la protagoniştii incredibili, personajele au fost toate foarte reliste, chiar dacă vorbim despre o carte Fantasy. Este exact ceea ce caut într-o carte pentru tineri, şi m-am bucurat să descopăr seria exact atunci când credeam că nu îmi mai place acest gen. O recomand din inimă tuturor iubitorilor genului.

My review

vanilla-rating-5-stars

 

I don't think I've ever read before an entire trilogy in a 2 weeks' time. I only delayed writing the review of this last book because I was very caught up in working on my very first novel. But that's another story, and you're here to read my thoughts on "Rhyn's Redemption" by YA Paranormal Romance writer Lizzy Ford.

This final book in the Rhyn Trilogy series answers to all the questions we've ever had from the first two novels. It is full of surprises and also the key to solving the puzzle formed by the prequels. If I had to sum up this book in one sentece, I'd say it is a clever and exciting chess game between Death itself and Darkyn, who are caught between a win or lose all situation. Who is the one who gives the Checkmate? You can only find out by reading it. So many incredible things happening in this book, I barely manage not to spoil it for you, dear review reader!

Let me just say this: Toby, I knew your role was much more important than we were led to believe. I love my instincts! And I can't stress enough how much I adored Deidre and Gabriel in this last book. Rhyn and Katie were awesome as always, I could actually feel how worried they were for each other.

Oh, Lizzy Ford, how you manage to capture your readers' attention! With lots of unexpected turns of events, how could I get bored? Cheating death, finding the loopholes in rules older than time, accepting your destiny, but at the same time trying to change it, the book doesn't lack at all in action. I find it annoying when this kind of books focus too much on the couples and their chemistry, but Rhyn's Trilogy has just the right amount of Romance. It's not what I'd call girlish either. Finding the balance and adding the right amounts of everything in a YA book may be tricky, but Lizzy Ford managed to find the perfect recipe with the Rhyn series!

This, of course, goes straight to my "favourites" shelf, mainly because of the passion with wich I savoured everything that happened. From the annoying characters that I loved to hate, to the amazing protagonists, the characters all seem very realistic, despite this being a Fantasy book. It's really the exact thing I am looking for in a YA Paranormal Romance, and I was happy to find it at the time when I thought this genre was no longer fit for my reading tastes. I recommend it with all my heart to lovers of this genre.
