Slovenský názov: Charlieho malé tajomstvá
Počet strán: 213
Rok vydania: 1999
Anotácia: Charlie is a freshman.

And while he's not the biggest geek in the school, he is by no means popular. Shy, introspective, intelligent beyond his years yet socially awkward, he is a wallflower, caught between trying to live his life and trying to run from it.

Charlie is attempting to navigate his way through uncharted territory: the world of first dates and mix tapes, family dramas and new friends; the world of sex, drugs, and The Rocky Horror Picture Show, when all one requires is that perfect song on that perfect drive to feel infinite. But he can't stay on the sideline forever. Standing on the fringes of life offers a unique perspective. But there comes a time to see what it looks like from the dance floor.

The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a deeply affecting coming-of-age story that will spirit you back to those wild and poignant roller-coaster days known as growing up

Crown of Midnight - Sarah J. Maas

Autor: Sarah J. Maas
Originálny názov: Crown of Midnight
Séria: Throne of Glass
Diel:  druhý
Počet strán: 418
Rok vydania: 2013
Anotácia: "A line that should never be crossed is about to be breached.

It puts this entire castle in jeopardy—and the life of your friend."

From the throne of glass rules a king with a fist of iron and a soul as black as pitch. Assassin Celaena Sardothien won a brutal contest to become his Champion. Yet Celaena is far from loyal to the crown. She hides her secret vigilantly; she knows that the man she serves is bent on evil.

Keeping up the deadly charade becomes increasingly difficult when Celaena realizes she is not the only one seeking justice. As she tries to untangle the mysteries buried deep within the glass castle, her closest relationships suffer. It seems no one is above questioning her allegiances—not the Crown Prince Dorian; not Chaol, the Captain of the Guard; not even her best friend, Nehemia, a foreign princess with a rebel heart.

Then one terrible night, the secrets they have all been keeping lead to an unspeakable tragedy. As Celaena's world shatters, she will be forced to give up the very thing most precious to her and decide once and for all where her true loyalties lie... and whom she is ultimately willing to fight for.

Septembrové zúčtovanie

September vyzerá, čo sa počtu dokončených kníh týka, ako celkom úspešný mesiac. Bohužiaľ nie zo všetkých prečítaných kníh som bola tak nadšená, ako by som chcela byť. Zvládla som si však aspoň pozrieť dva filmy, no aj tak sa k môjmu cieľu (15 filmov za rok) nepribližuje veľmi rýchlo.
