Questo venerdì sono in diretta dal Napoli Comicon, in compagnia della mia ormai amicona-on-ona LA SVAMPS! Ma l’appuntamento con A.A.A. non poteva certo mancare, e oggi è il turno di ospitare Rory, altra super amica che gestisce il big blog IL COLORE DEI LIBRI! Curiosi di conoscere i suoi tre titoli?
In Italia “Il gioiello”
Di Amy Ewing
Genere: Distopico YA Voto Goodreads: 3,84/5
The Jewel means wealth. The Jewel means beauty. The Jewel means royalty. But for girls like Violet, the Jewel means servitude. Not just any kind of servitude. Violet, born and raised in the Marsh, has been trained as a surrogate for the royalty—because in the Jewel the only thing more important than opulence is offspring.
Purchased at the surrogacy auction by the Duchess of the Lake and greeted with a slap to the face, Violet (now known only as #197) quickly learns of the brutal truths that lie beneath the Jewel’s glittering facade: the cruelty, backstabbing, and hidden violence that have become the royal way of life.
Violet must accept the ugly realities of her existence… and try to stay alive. But then a forbidden romance erupts between Violet and a handsome gentleman hired as a companion to the Duchess’s petulant niece. Though his presence makes life in the Jewel a bit brighter, the consequences of their illicit relationship will cost them both more than they bargained for.
Rory: Ne avevano annunciato l’uscita in Italia un anno fa, poi non se ne è saputo più nulla. È vero che ricorda vari YA usciti negli ultimi anni ed anche un po’ Romeo e Giulietta, ma è comunque molto intrigante.
Lewis: Io ce lo vedrei bene insieme alla serie The Selection!
Toto-Editore…Fabbri o Sperling
THE KISS OF DECEPTION
In Italia “Il bacio ingannevole”
Di Mary E. Pearson
Genere: Fantasy YA Voto Goodreads: 4,08/5
A princess must find her place in a reborn world.
She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.
The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.
Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love.
Rory: E’ un fantasy YA, ma si discosta molto dagli altri libri di questi genere perchè ha anche un po’ di mistero/intrigo che difficilmente si trovano nei soliti fantasy… E poi la scena romantica è WOW
Toto-Editore…Rizzoli o Newton Compton
In Italia “Lost Lake”
Di Sarah Addison Allen
Genere: Narrativa Voto Goodreads: 3,84/5
The first time Eby Pim saw Lost Lake, it was on a picture postcard. Just an old photo and a few words on a small square of heavy stock, but when she saw it, she knew she was seeing her future.
That was half a life ago. Now Lost Lake is about to slip into Eby’s past. Her husband George is long passed. Most of her demanding extended family are gone. All that’s left is a once-charming collection of lakeside cabins succumbing to the Southern Georgia heat and damp, and an assortment of faithful misfits drawn back to Lost Lake year after year by their own unspoken dreams and desires.
It’s a lot, but not enough to keep Eby from relinquishing Lost Lake to a developer with cash in hand, and calling this her final summer at the lake. Until one last chance at family knocks on her door.
Lost Lake is where Kate Pheris spent her last best summer at the age of twelve, before she learned of loneliness, and heartbreak, and loss. Now she’s all too familiar with those things, but she knows about hope too, thanks to her resilient daughter Devin, and her own willingness to start moving forward. Perhaps at Lost Lake her little girl can cling to her own childhood for just a little longer… and maybe Kate herself can rediscover something that slipped through her fingers so long ago.
One after another, people find their way to Lost Lake, looking for something that they weren’t sure they needed in the first place: love, closure, a second chance, peace, a mystery solved, a heart mended. Can they find what they need before it’s too late?
At once atmospheric and enchanting, Lost Lake shows Sarah Addison Allen at her finest, illuminating the secret longings and the everyday magic that wait to be discovered in the unlikeliest of places.
Rory: Adoro Sarah Addison Allen, mi piacciono le sue storie e mi piace come scrive! In Italia son stati pubblicati solo 4 libri su 6 e spero sempre che qualche CE decida di investire di nuovo su di lei!
Toto-Editore…Harper Collins o Newton Compton
Le trame stavolta sono in lingua per problemi tecnici, ma vi prometto di modificarle stasera! Intanto sbirciate questi tre libri! Prima di andare però….GRAZIE RORY!!! Grazie per essere stata un’ospite interessantissima!
