Idegen nyelvű megjelenések - 2018. február

Howdy-doo! :) Szokásomhoz híven ezúttal is hozom nektek az új könyves megjelenéseket, egyenesen a Goodreadsről - bár ma reggel még a naptár is a képembe röhögött, "ezt jól eltoltad" felkiáltással finoman közölte velem, hogy március 1. van, és kicsúsztam minden olyan posztból, amit februárra terveztem - igen, a megjelenésekből is. Azt pedig már tényleg csak félve vallom be, hogy tegnap este még totál üres lap vigyorgott vissza rám a laptop képernyőjéről, legfeljebb a Goodreads linkek voltak meg - se kép, se fülszövegek, se borítók, semmi. Nyomorult vagyok, nem vitás. Ám talán kicsit más lesz a helyzet akkor, ha bevallom azt is: egyáltalán nem voltam lusta disznó - csak mással foglalkoztam a blogon, amiről egyenlőre nem beszélhetek. De érdemes figyelni az oldalt, mert a háttérben bizony nagy bizniszek mennek. :) 

Sok újdonság történt velem az elmúlt pár napban, hétben - például felfedeztem az Amazon áldásos tevékenységét, és azóta állandóan arra járok. Plusz újdonságként említeném, beszereztem az Amazon Kindle alkalmazását, kipróbáltam - az angol nyelvű gyűjteményem azóta 40 könyvvel gazdagodott. Apropó, Kindle. Tegnap este Uri Gellert megszégyenítő szuggerálással próbáltam kihúzni az újságból, hogy én leszek-e a szerencsés flótás azon a játékon, ahol Kindle olvasót lehet nyerni...szurkoljatok. Egyszer már nyertem 10 könyvet, ugyanezzel a mantrával. Aztán pár napja készítettem Twitter, és Bloglovin' oldalt a blog számára - előbbit régebben is használtam, utóbbit meg bánom, hogy nem fedeztem fel előbb. Szóval az utóbbi időben nagyon megszaladt a szekér, és ez csak a kezdete valami egészen újnak. Az utóbbi időben egyébként sokat olvasok angolul, és így kinyílt szinte az egész világ - tartogatok még meglepetést, nem is akármilyeneket. Aki pedig elmesélné, hogy vele mi történik, milyen színű zoknit húzott fel, mit evett reggelire, stb. - stb., annak az irományát várom a komment szekcióban odalent. De nem is húzom tovább az időt, jöjjenek a februári megjelenések!

Ps. mire lefordítanám az összes fülszöveget, 90 éves lennék, ám ha valakit jobban érdekel egy könyv, jelezzen feltétlen.

The Beau and the Belle (R.S.Grey)
Ford: "Beau és a Szépség"
Goodreads arány: 3,97
Megjelent: 02. 01.

"Beau Fortier starred in most of my cringe-worthy teenage fantasies. I met him when I was a junior in high school, a time that revolved exclusively around bad hair, failed forays into flirting, and scientific inquiries into which brand of toilet paper worked best for stuffing bras. That is, until Beau moved into the small guest house just beyond my bedroom window. A 24-year-old law student at Tulane, Beau was as mysterious to me as second base (both in baseball and in the bedroom). He was older. Intimidating. Hot. Boys my age had chicken legs and chubby cheeks. Beau had calloused hands and a jaw cut from steel. Our interactions were scarce—mostly involving slight stalking on my end—and yet deep down, I desperately hoped he saw me as more of a potential lover than a lovesick loser. Turns out, I was fooling myself. My fragile ego learned that lesson the hard way. Now, ten years later, we’re both back in New Orleans, and guess who suddenly can’t take his eyes off little ol’ me. My old friend, Mr. Fortier. But things have changed. I’m older now—poised and confident. My ego wears a bulletproof vest. The butterflies that once filled my stomach have all perished. When I was a teenager, Beau warned me to guard my heart. Let’s hope he knows how to guard his."

"Lost in the shadows of a tragedy that stripped Aurora June of everything she once loved, she’s back in the small town of Balsam Grove, North Carolina, ready to face all she’s kept locked away for seven years. Or so she thinks. As one of the victims of a string of mysterious disappearances in the small, picturesque Appalachian Mountain town, darkness has become her home—her safe blanket when the world reveals its true colors. But as the walls of darkness start to move in on her, she knows the only way to free herself from her past is to face it, head-on. She just needs to figure out how. Upon arrival, Aurora isn’t expecting her first collision to be with the boy she left all those years ago. The boy who betrayed her trust with no regrets. The boy who is no longer a boy, but a man with the same stormy eyes that swept her into his current before she ever learned to swim. She’d thought he was safe. He’d thought their path was mapped out. Turns out neither of them was ready for the crash at the bottom of the cascade."

But when I take a nanny job to be near my pregnant sister, I swear to myself I’ll walk the straight and narrow, which means I cannot fall for my insanely hot boss. I don't want to be tempted by that rugged rancher. By his chiseled muscles or southern charm or the way he snuggles his kids at bedtime. Ethan Carter won't get the key to my heart, no matter how much I want him..."

"Ethan: Between us, she's the last thing I need as I finalize my hellish divorce. What sane man trying to rebuild his life wants a hot nanny with long, sexy hair, curves for miles, and a smart mouth? A perfectly kissable, pouty mouth that I shouldn't notice. My focus is on my kids and my ranch, not the insufferable siren who sleeps in the room next to mine. It doesn't matter that she wins over my kids in a heartbeat or runs my life better than I do. Tori Duran is the one woman I can't have and shouldn't want, no matter how much I crave her..."

Gentleman Nine (Penelope Ward)
Ford. "A Kilences Számú Úriember"
Goodreads arány: 4,09
Megjelent: 02. 19.

"Growing up, the three of us were friends. He was the nerd. I was the playboy. She was the beauty. Deep down, I only ever wanted her. I kept it inside because Rory and I made a pact that our friend, Amber, was off-limits. He lied. I went off to college, and he got the girl. Amber never knew how I felt. They were together for years—before he broke her heart. Through it all and across the miles, she and I casually stayed in touch. When my job sent me to Boston for a three-month contract position, Amber let me stay in her spare room. Still reeling from her breakup, she’d sworn off men.

One night, I opened her computer to find the shock of my life. She’d hesitantly contacted a male escort company. Afraid to date and get her heart broken again, she was looking for sex with no strings. Every emotion imaginable ran through me: protectiveness, jealousy—curiosity. Amber had chosen Gentleman Number Nine and sent him a message. She opened up to him, confessing, among other things, her physical attraction to her friend—me. But she considered me off-limits—and she thought I was a manwhore. (Ironic, considering the circumstances.) Eventually, she set up a date to meet Gentleman Nine at a hotel. When she showed up several nights later to meet him, she was stunned to see me standing there—with an offer I hoped she wouldn’t refuse."

Leaving me confused. Devastated. I hope I’ll never see him again…Then I do. He’s my new boss. And he has secrets."

"This wasn’t supposed to happen. But it did. This wasn’t supposed to be my life. But it was. I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him. I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty. The only problem? He was off limits. Forbidden. But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences. My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story."

He's even more handsome than she remembers, and that something that had been building between them during their last season together is back in front of them, bigger than ever.

The Smallest Part (Amy Harmon)
Ford. "A Legapróbb Rész"
Goodreads arány: 4,27
Megjelent: 02. 13. 

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie. “Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?” If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too. So Mercedes lied. And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate. She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and the downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down. This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

Memphis (Ginger Scott)
Goodreads arány: 4,17
Megjelent: 02. 23.

"My mom always said it was just something about the way he moved. The same swagger Archie Valentine wore in the ring when he took his opponents down followed him like a halo everywhere he went. But make no mistake about it—he was no angel. He was like a drug. My mother was his addict. I never understood it…how love could make you blind and convince you to drink the poison. Not until I met Memphis Delaney. At first, it was the familiar form. He’s a fighter, built like a god from the past, the kind of man the universe doesn’t make anymore. His eyes hide a story, and every time I’m in his presence I want to keep reading him until I get to the end. And then…there’s the way he moves. His boxing is violent but beautiful, and his body is a seductive weapon. When he’s in the ring, he wears the stare of a man committed to the battle until his very last breath. He could end me; turn me into her. Too much of him will leave me as a shadow, and I’ve lost so much of myself already. But I have discipline. It came the hard way. Lessons learned, scars left behind, and trust stripped away from life. I will breathe his air, but I won’t fall for a man like him. The only boxer who’s ever going to break my heart is the one who gave me my name."

When a celebrity blogging position falls into my lap, I’m determined to succeed. That is, until I get my first assignment and actually see Noah Frazier for the first time...practically naked and dripping wet. My heart races and I forget how to form complete sentences. His chiseled abs, irresistible smirk, and crystal blue eyes are too perfect to be real. So, what do I do? Get drunk and humiliate myself, of course. I’m ready to forget the awkward night, yet Noah has no intention of allowing me to move on. Instead, he arranges for me to write a feature on him, ensuring a lot more time together. One embarrassing moment after another, one kiss after another, and before I can stop myself, I realize—I’m falling in love with him. But when the unthinkable happens, can I even blame him for cutting his losses? What I wouldn’t give for just one last time..."

  1. Ennyi szuper megjelenést egy helyen... Nagyon jó, hogy így kigyűjtötted a frissek krémjét, mert egyébként néhány gyöngyszem bizony elkerülte volna a figyelmem, úgyhogy köszi. Már csak a pénztárcám győzze irammal. :D Neked meg drukkolok, hogy egy kindle-lel gazdagabb légy. ;) Egyébként kíváncsian várom milyen újdonságok várhatóak a blogon és ha már megemlítetted a bejegyzésben, ma a hóesésre való tekintettel meleg, hópelyhes zokni védte a lábaim a cudar időjárástól, amit a reggelire elfogyasztott müzli, hideg tejjel, is fokozott. ;) További szép estét és könyvekkel teli hétvégét kívánok!

    1. Örülök, ha tetszik az írás. :)) Minden hónapban tervezek ilyet, mert így én is sokkal könnyebben átlátom, mit kell még beszerezni...például az Amazonról. :DD Rengeteg a szép borítójú, remek fülszövegű könyv, és néhány még úgy is felkeltette a figyelmemet, hogy pl. fantasy-t egyáltalán nem olvasok, vagy csak nagyon elvétve. Matt Haig könyve pl. időutazásról szól - azt írja, a főszereplő srác 40 évesnek néz ki, mégis évszázadok óta él, előadott Shakespeare-el, hajózott Cook kapitánnyal, és a társaságnak amiben benne van, egy szabálya van - nem lehet a fickó szerelmes. A többi meg - gondolom én - már történelem. :'D

      Hát, ha ugyanezzel az újsággal és mantrával már egyszer sikerült bevonzanom 10 könyvet, szívből remélem, hogy most is bejön. :D Nemsokára kiderül, miről is van szó, és...remélem, nektek is tetszeni fog, mert nagyon keményen dolgozom - a többit meg majd máskor. ;) Ps. nekem duplazoknim van, mégis megfagy a lábam. :D A tejet viszont ki nem állhatom, elkerülöm, amikor csak tudom. A kakaót szeretem. :P

      Nagyon aranyos vagy, hogy írtál, és nagyon szépen köszönöm, feldobta a napomat! ^^ <3

    2. Én is most ismerkedem az amazonnal, eddig angol könyveket még csak bookdeporól rendeltem, ott ingyenes a kiszállítás, de mondjuk e-könyveknél az nem számít, csak hát van aminek olyan gyönyörű a borítója, hogy muszáj a polcomon díszelegnie. :D Én olvasok fantasyt is, sok más mellett, úgyhogy külön öröm volt, hogy abból is tettél bele néhányat. Az időutazósra én is nagyon kíváncsi vagyok, elég érdekes sztorinak tűnik. Meg a The Queen of Hearts is tetszik, a borító is és a fülszöveg is, főleg mivel aktuális nálam a téma is. Persze, majdnem mindegyik könyv felkeltette az érdeklődésem, csak lenne több időm, na meg vastagabb pénztárcám. :D Ha bejön és megint nyersz, akkor én is tudni akarom mi a titkod. :D Na majd akkor sasszemmel figyelem a blogot. Én sem szeretem nagyon a tejet, de csokis műzlivel olyan mint a kakaó. :D Én is köszönöm neked, hogy ilyen érdekes bejegyzéseket írsz, amik meg az én napom dobják fel. ;)
