2013 Romanian releases I am dying to read

Si acum, cateva lansari romanesti ce vor avea loc in acest an. Nu ma refer in mod special la carti scrise de autori  romani, ci carti publicate de edituri romanesti. Curiozitatea ma indeamna: voi ce asteptati cu nerabdare?

Dupa cum e lesne de sesizat, majoritatea sunt aparitii Leda, nu deoarece as avea o preferinta anume pentru cartile lor, dar in mod special pentru ca stiu ce carti urmeaza sa publice. Nu sunt ferm convinsa ca toate aceste carti urmeaza sa fie publicate in 2013, dar asa cred. :)

2013 releases I am dying to read

Incepe 2013 in curand si as vrea sa imi planific mai bine anul...Nu ca in felul acesta as reusi sa ma tin mai bine de blog, dar pot spera. O sa incep seria de posturi 2013... cu acesta, in care vreau sa prezint cateva lansari de peste hotare pe care vreau sa le citesc la anu'. Asadar si asa deci:

Sybella arrives at the convent’s doorstep half mad with grief and despair. Those that serve Death are only too happy to offer her refuge—but at a price. Naturally skilled in both the arts of death and seduction, the convent views Sybella as one of their most dangerous weapons.

But those assassin’s skills are little comfort when the convent returns her to a life that nearly drove her mad. Her father’s rage and brutality are terrifying, and her brother’s love is equally monstrous. And while Sybella is a weapon of justice wrought by the god of Death himself, He must give her a reason to live. When she discovers an unexpected ally imprisoned in the dungeons, will a daughter of Death find something other than vengeance to live for?

This heart-pounding sequel to Grave Mercy serves betrayal, treachery, and danger in equal measure, bringing readers back to fifteenth century Brittany and will keep them on the edge of their seats

Stephen has been invisible for practically his whole life — because of a curse his grandfather, a powerful cursecaster, bestowed on Stephen’s mother before Stephen was born. So when Elizabeth moves to Stephen’s NYC apartment building from Minnesota, no one is more surprised than he is that she can see him. A budding romance ensues, and when Stephen confides in Elizabeth about his predicament, the two of them decide to dive headfirst into the secret world of cursecasters and spellseekers to figure out a way to break the curse. But things don’t go as planned, especially when Stephen’s grandfather arrives in town, taking his anger out on everyone he sees. In the end, Elizabeth and Stephen must decide how big of a sacrifice they’re willing to make for Stephen to become visible — because the answer could mean the difference between life and death. At least for Elizabeth

A riveting new story from Cat Patrick, author of Forgotten and Revived.

17-year-olds Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey Best grew up as identical triplets... until they discovered a shocking family secret. They're actually closer than sisters, they're clones. Hiding from a government agency that would expose them, the Best family appears to consist of a single mother with one daughter named Elizabeth. Lizzie, Ella, and Betsey take turns going to school, attending social engagements, and a group mindset has always been a de facto part of life...

Then Lizzie meets Sean Kelly, a guy who seems to see into her very soul. As their relationship develops, Lizzie realizes that she's not a carbon copy of her sisters; she's an individual with unique dreams and desires, and digging deeper into her background, Lizzie begins to dismantle the delicate balance of an unusual family that only science could have created. 

A teen girl starts hearing the same voices that drove her sister to commit suicide in this creepy, suspenseful novel.

Everyone thinks Sophie’s sister, Nell, went crazy. After all, she heard strange voices that drove her to commit suicide. But Sophie doesn’t believe that Nell would take her own life, and she’s convinced that Nell’s doctor knows more than he’s letting on.

As Sophie starts to piece together Nell’s last days, every lead ends in a web of lies. And the deeper Sophie digs, the more danger she’s in—because now she’s hearing the same haunting whispers. Sophie’s starting to think she’s going crazy too. Or worse, that maybe she’s not…

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick
it's almost
time for war.

Juliette has escaped to Omega Point. It is a place for people like her—people with gifts—and it is also the headquarters of the rebel resistance.

She's finally free from The Reestablishment, free from their plan to use her as a weapon, and free to love Adam. But Juliette will never be free from her lethal touch.
Or from Warner, who wants Juliette more than she ever thought possible.
In this exhilarating sequel to Shatter Me, Juliette has to make life-changing decisions between what she wants and what she thinks is right. Decisions that might involve choosing between her heart—and Adam's life.

You stop fearing the devil when you’re holding his hand…

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town…until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

Blending faded decadence and the thrilling dread of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying—a debut to watch

Paper Valentine is a hauntingly poetic tale of love and death by the New York Times bestselling author of The Replacement and The Space Between

It's one thing to learn to curtsy properly. It's quite another to learn to curtsy and throw a knife at the same time. Welcome to finishing school.

Fourteen-year-old Sophronia is the bane of her mother's existence. Sophronia is more interested in dismantling clocks and climbing trees than proper etiquette at tea--and god forbid anyone see her atrocious curtsy. Mrs. Temminnick is desperate for her daughter to become a proper lady. She enrolls Sophronia in Mademoiselle Geraldine's Finishing Academy for Young Ladies of Quality.

But little do Sophronia or her mother know that this is a school where ingenious young girls learn to finish, all right--but it's a different kind of finishing. Mademoiselle Geraldine's certainly trains young ladies in the finer arts of dance, dress, and etiquette, but also in the other kinds of finishing: the fine arts of death, diversion, deceit, espionage, and the modern weaponries. Sophronia and her friends are going to have a rousing first year at school.

First in a four book YA series set 25 years before the Parasol Protectorate but in the same universe

Fia was born with flawless instincts. Her first impulse, her gut feeling, is always exactly right. Her sister, Annie, is blind to the world around her—except when her mind is gripped by strange visions of the future. 

Trapped in a school that uses girls with extraordinary powers as tools for corporate espionage, Annie and Fia are forced to choose over and over between using their abilities in twisted, unthinkable ways… or risking each other’s lives by refusing to obey.

In a stunning departure from her New York Times bestselling Paranormalcy trilogy, Kiersten White delivers a slick, edgy, heartstoppingly intense psychological thriller about two sisters determined to protect each other—no matter the cost.

In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile after failing in his job as an investigator of religious groups and supernatural claims. But Justin is given a second chance when Mae Koskinen comes to bring him back to the Republic of United North America (RUNA). Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military’s most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills.

When Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, they soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.

Gameboard of the Gods, the first installment of Richelle Mead’s Age of X series, will have all the elements that have made her YA Vampire Academy and Bloodlines series such megasuccesses: sexy, irresistible characters; romantic and mythological intrigue; and relentless action and suspense

O, brad frumos....! O, brad frumos...!

Ta-daaaaa! Bradul meu de Craciun realizat in exclusivitate din carti:) Bufnita are legatura cu Craciunul, nu cu cartile.

In curand: Circul noptii

Urmărind periplul aventuros al unui circ fermecat, la sfârşitul secolului al XIX-lea, romanul de debut al talentatei tinere scriitoare Erin Morgenstern este o magică poveste de dragoste pentru cititorii de toate vârstele.
Circul soseşte pe neaşteptate. Nu îl precede niciun anunţ, nu îl vesteşte niciun afiş. Se iveşte subit, de nicăieri. Te pomeneşti cu el în faţa ochilor, când ieri nici vorbă nu era de el.
Sub cupola corturilor nocturne, în dungi albe şi negre, te aşteaptă însă o experienţă cu totul unică, o sărbătoare a simţurilor – poţi să te pierzi într-un labirint de nori, să rătăceşti prin meandrele unei grădini luxuriante construite din gheaţă, să priveşti uimit la contorsionista tatuată care se strecoară într-o minusculă cutie de sticlă şi să te îmbeţi cu miresmele de caramel şi scorţişoară ce adie ameţitor prin aer.
Acesta este Le Cirque des Rêves! Bine aţi venit!
Însă, în spatele norilor de fum şi al oglinzilor, se derulează o competiţie crâncenă – un duel între doi tineri magicieni, Celia şi Marco – antrenaţi încă din copilărie să concureze într-un “joc” implacabil de către maeştrii lor misterioşi. Necunoscută celor doi, aceasta este însă o confruntare din care doar unul dintre ei va reuşi să iasă învingător, iar circul este scena pe care se desfăşoară o bătălie cumplită a imaginaţiei şi voinţei.
Dar când o dragoste profundă, pasionată şi magică se înfiripă între cei doi protagonişti, bătrânii lor maeştri trebuie să intervină, iar consecinţe vor fi periculoase pentru toţi cei implicaţi.
O poveste seducătoare, plină de aventură, magie şi poezie.
