Retrieve a hostage

Survive long enough to collect his reward

3 sklamané minirecenzie

Síce som tento rok narazila na niektoré knihy, ktoré som si veľmi užila, tiež sa mi do rúk dostalo niekoľko kúskov, z ktorých som si robila väčšie nádeje a zostali nenaplnené. K niektorým z nich toho nemám veľa povedať, no aj tak by som vás rada oboznámila s mojim názorom a s tým, prečo ma tieto knihy sklamali. Preto som sa rozhodla tri z mojich sklamaní zhrnúť v jednom článku.

Anotácia: All year the half-bloods have been preparing for battle against the Titans, knowing the odds of victory are grim.

I MESSED UP | book tag

Na tento tag pôvodne od Chami z ReadLikeWildFire som nedávno narazila u Foxy a hneď po jeho prečítaní som si povedala, že ho musím spraviť aj ja. A keďže tu už žiadny tag nebol veľmi dlho (celkovo tu bol pravdepodobne iba jeden), vôbec som z jeho realizáciou nečakala.

Marcové zúčtovanie

Síce som si na Goodreads v marci označila ako prečítaných 10 kníh, v skutočnosti bol môj mesiac oveľa menej úspešný, ako sa zdá. Od mnohých kníh som totiž mala veľké očakávania, ktoré sa nenaplnili a prečítaných strán tiež nebolo v skutočnosti tak veľa-

Big Little Lies - Liane Moriarty

Autor: Liane Moriarty
Originálny názov: Big Little Lies
Slovenský názov: Veľké malé klamstvá
Počet strán: 460
Rok vydania: 2014
Anotácia: Big Little Lies follows three women, each at a crossroads:

Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny and biting, passionate, she remembers everything and forgives no one. Her ex-husband and his yogi new wife have moved into her beloved beachside community, and their daughter is in the same kindergarten class as Madeline’s youngest (how is this possible?). And to top it all off, Madeline’s teenage daughter seems to be choosing Madeline’s ex-husband over her. (How. Is. This. Possible?).

Celeste is the kind of beautiful woman who makes the world stop and stare. While she may seem a bit flustered at times, who wouldn’t be, with those rambunctious twin boys? Now that the boys are starting school, Celeste and her husband look set to become the king and queen of the school parent body. But royalty often comes at a price, and Celeste is grappling with how much more she is willing to pay.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for the nanny. Jane is sad beyond her years and harbors secret doubts about her son. But why? While Madeline and Celeste soon take Jane under their wing, none of them realizes how the arrival of Jane and her inscrutable little boy will affect them all.

Big Little Lies is a brilliant take on ex-husbands and second wives, mothers and daughters, schoolyard scandal, and the dangerous little lies we tell ourselves just to survive.
