Autorul saptamanii la Editura Rao!

        Terry Pratchett
 Terry Pratchett s-a născut în 1948 şi este unul dintre cei mai de succes scriitori britanici. Şi-a început cariera de jurnalist într-o zi în 1965, iar primul cadavru l-a văzut după numai trei ore de la începerea activităţii, căci la acea vreme experienţa de lucru nu era numai vorbă goală. După ce a ocupat toate posturile posibile în presa locală, s-a angajat la Regia Centrală a Energiei Electrice ca ofiţer de presă. Această perioadă a luat sfârşit în 1987, când i-a devenit limpede cã a scrie despre LUMEA DISC era mult mai plăcut decât a munci de-adevăratelea. Mai scrie şi proză pentru tinerii cititori, iar din când în când este acuzat de literatură.
Terry Pratchett trăieşte în Wiltshire, cu soţia sa şi cu fiica lor, Rhianna. Consideră că scrisul este cel mai bun mod de a te amuza de unul singur.


Daca as ramane




Mia este o violoncelistă talentată în vârstă de 17 ani, cu o familie iubitoare şi un prieten minunat, Adam. Ea nu trebuie decât să aleagă dacă va merge la New York pentru a studia la Julliard sau dacă va rămâne în Oregon cu cei dragi. Însă într-o dimineaţă cu ninsoare, totul se schimbă, iar decizia pe care brusc trebuie să o ia este dramatică şi dureroasă. Mia îşi pierde părinţii şi fratele mai mic într-un accident rutier, şi, cu toate că nu îşi aminteşte momentul impactului, ea îi poate vedea pe cei din jur şi pe sine. Romanul este scris la persoana întâi, Mia evocă evenimente din viaţa sa, descrie ceea ce vede şi aude în spital, deşi nu poate simţi nimic şi este din ce în ce mai slăbită. Dragostea pentru cei rămaşi în viaţă şi pentru Adam şi pasiunea pentru muzica clasică vor determina alegerea pe care tânara o face la final. "Dacă aş rămâne" atinge teme importante, despre viaţă, moarte şi despre cum totul se poate schimba iremediabil într-o secundă. Cartea este inspirată de o tragedie reală.





In curand la RAO!Predestinati!

Helen Hamilton a încercat mereu să ascundă cât este de diferită, un lucru nu prea uşor pe o insulă atât de mică precum Nantucket şi care devine tot mai greu pe măsură ce este chinuită din ce în ce mai mult de halucinaţii şi coşmaruri. Dar adevărata moştenire a lui Helen va ieşi la iveală abia când îl întâlneşte pe Lucas Delos la şcoală. Dar chiar şi atunci când Lucas o ajută să-şi trezească la viaţă uimitoarele puteri adormite, ei nu pot fi împreună dacă nu se eliberează de destinul tragic ţesut pentru ei de cele trei moire.

Quotes.(#11)



“There's a good kind of crazy, Kaylee," he insisted softly, reaching out to wrap his warm hand around mine. "It's the kind that makes you think about things that make your head hurt, because not thinking about them is the coward's way out. The kind that makes you touch people who bruise your soul, just because they need to be touched. This is the kind of crazy that lets you stare out into the darkness and rage at eternity, while it stares back at you, ready to swallow you whole."

Tod leaned closer, staring into my eyes so intently I was sure he could see everything I was thinking, but too afraid to say. "I've seen you fight, Kaylee. I've seen you step into that darkness for someone else, then claw your way out, bruised, but still standing. You're that kind of crazy, and I live in that darkness. Together, we'd take crazy to a whole new level.”


Shiny Toy Guns - Ghost Town.Music(29)

Happy Halloween!
Lyrics.
Oh oh oh oh oh [x4]

Everyone living in ghost town
Everyone buried in waste land
We dont want to
We dont have to be like that
Living in ghost town
All the boys shout it out loud now
All the girls scream it out louder
We dont want to
We dont have to live like that
Oooooooh oooooohhhhhhhh

Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me

Everyone living in ghost town
Everyone buried in waste land
We dont want to
We dont have to be like that
Living in ghost town
All the boys shout it out loud now
All the girls scream it out louder
We dont want to
We dont have to live like that
Oooooooh

Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Hold me back you know were never gonna back down
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me

It's nearly over, the last train is near
And it's leaving behind those tears
These are the bad lands
The worst place to fear
Making place for the ones we left here
They're calling calling
To say goodbye

Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me

Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go of me
Were dead in this ghost town
You better let go so let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me
Oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh, let go let go of me

What’s twenty-eight years when you have eternal love?




Snow White: I’m not leaving you.
Prince Charming: It’s the only way. You’ll go in there and you’ll be safe from the curse.
Snow White: He said it would be on her twenty-eighth birthday.
Prince Charming: What’s twenty-eight years when you have eternal love? I have faith. You will save me as I did you.

Last Sacrifice.Sarutul dintre Rose si Dimitri nominat pentru Favourite Kiss.


Nominated Kiss: Rose and Dimitri before Rose tries to escape
Book: Vampire Academy: Last Sacrifice


An idea hit me so fast that I didn't pause to analyze it. I just acted. My body might be constrained, but my head and neck had just enough freedom to shift up - and kiss him.

My lips met his, and I learned a few things. One was that it was possible to catch him totally by surprise. His body froze and locked up, shocked at the sudden turn of events. I also realized that he was just as good a kisser as I recalled. The last time we'd kissed had been when he was Strigoi. There had been an eerie sexiness to that, but it didn't compare to the heat and energy of being alive. His lips were just like I remembered from our time at St. Vladimir's, both soft and hungry at the same time. Electricity spread through the rest of my body as he kissed me back. It was both comforting and exhilarating.

And that was the third thing I discovered. He was kissing me back. Maybe, just maybe, Dimitri wasn't as resolved as he claimed to be. Maybe under all that guilt and certainty that he couldn't love again, he still wanted me. I would have liked to have found out. But I didn't have time.

Instead, I punched him.

Ascent by Amy Kinzer.


For three teens going back to the past is the only way to save the future.

After years of recession a new political party is ascending to power. To control the United States they must offer leaders people will vote for. The Party has chosen a select group of teens to attend the Institute for Youth Development (IYD) for training to become the nation’s next leaders. But no one has a perfect past and in a world where every moment is captured on film it has become increasingly difficult to find future politicians. Everyone has something from their past they wish they could change.

Matt wants to go back and change the night he drove drunk and ended the life of his girlfriend and best friend; Farrah-Kate, the daughter of America’s most tragic actress, wants to save her movie star mother; and Rick is ordered to go back and change the night he hacked the governments computers.

Marvin Winn, a casino billionaire and Party founder has funded a device that will take the chosen back in time to alter their past. But not everyone is attending the Institute because they want to join The Party. And while everyone returns to their past, one person will choose not to come back, putting everything The Party seeks to achieve at risk.

10 Years - Don't fight it.Music(#28)

Lyrics.
I wanna know what you really think of me
I wanna feel all the pain that sets you free
These waves of doubt are drowning me
Gone are the days when this was easy

Buried in the past so many moments I want back
Tomorrow doesn't hold onto yesterday

If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it
Show me what we've got to lose
Don't hide it, don't hide it
Memories stuck in my head
All the things I should have said
If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it

I wanna know after all these lessons learned
If there's a road from these bridges that we burned
I need to know if you still want me
Want me to show how much I need you

Buried in the past so many moments I want back
Tomorrow doesn't hold onto yesterday

If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it
Show me what we've got to lose
Don't hide it, don't hide it
Memories stuck in my head
All the things I should have said
If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it

Gone are all of the days when this was easy
Tomorrow can't hold onto yesterday

If you come right back to me
I won't fight it, I won't fight it
Show me what you need from me
Don't hide it, don't hide it

If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it
Show me what we've got to lose
Don't hide it, don't hide it
Memories stuck in my head
All the things I should have said
If I fall back into you
Don't fight it, don't fight it

Let's Talk About.....(#5)

Astazi la Let's talk about... m-am gandit sa postez despre...
Rick Riordan.

Sunt sigura ca deja ati auzit de seria Percy Jackson care este foarte indragita in strainatate ,cat si la noi(cred si sper).Eu,cel putin am citit primele doua volume si mi-au placut la nebunie!
Imi plac cartile despre mitologie si cand am descoperit seria Percy Jackson si olimpienii mi-am spus ca trebuie sa o citesc,chiar daca lista mea de "to-read" este destul de lunga...
Ceea ce mai trebuie sa mentionez este faptul ca dupa primul volum,adica Percy Jackson si Olimpienii:Hotul fulgerului ,sa facut un film.Rolul principal ii apartine lui Logan Lerman.De asemenea in anul 2013 va aparea o ecranizarea facut dupa cel de-al doilea volum numit:
Percy Jackson si Olimpienii:Marea Monstrilor.
Ok.Ok.Sa trecem la ce ii mai important.

Info despre Rick Riordan.
Rick Riordan este un autor american din Texas faimos pentru seria Percy Jackson si Olimpienii(Hotul Fulgerului,Marea Monstrilor,Blestemul Titanului,Lupta din Labirint,Ultimul Olimpian).
El a invatat la Universitatea din Texas in Austin in 1986,unde sa specializat in Engleza si Istorie.De asemenea, a scris seria Piramida Rosie(Cronicile Kane),si ,recent,Eroul pierdut(Eroii din Olympus).
A mai scris seria Tres Navarre pentru adulti  si primul volum din seria Labirint de oase numit 39 de indicii ,si a mai  ajutat la editarea Demigods si Monstri(o colectie de esee cu tema seriei sale Percy Jackson)  


Info despre Film.
Percy Jackson si Olimpienii:Hotul Fulgerului.
  Percy Jackson este un baiat in varsta de 12 ani, care se afla pe punctul de a fi exmatriculat din scoala din pricina comportamentului sau turbulent. Cea mai mare problema a adolescentului nu o reprezinta insa situatia scolara, ci faptul ca zeii greci, satirii si monstri de tot felul par sa fi coborat din paginile cartilor de mitologie pentru a intra in viata lui. Afland ca este fiul zeului marii Poseidon si al muritoarei Sally, Percy Jackson porneste intr-o calatorie plina de aventuri pe tot teritoriul modern al Statelor Unite ale Americii cu scopul de a-si salva mama si de a preveni izbucnirea unui razboi devastator intre zeii din Olimp. Fiind acuzat pe nedrept de furtul tridentului cu fulgere al lui Zeus, tanarul Percy Jackson trebuie sa il captureze pe adevaratul hot pentru a-si dovedi nevinovatia, fiind ajutat in incercarile sale de catre un satir pe nume Grover Underwood, care ii este cel mai bun prieten deoarece, desi a trecut de varsta de 30 de ani, are mintea unui copil de 16 ani.
Poze.


 Info despre primul volum din seria Percy Jackson si Olimpienii.

A Blue So Dark
Rain Village



A Witch in Winter by Ruth Warburton

Anna Winterson doesn't know she's a witch and would probably mock you for believing in magic, but after moving to the small town of Winter with her father, she learns more than she ever wanted to about power. When Anna meets Seth, she is smitten, but when she enchants him to love her, she unwittingly amplifies a deadly conflict between two witch clans and splits her own heart in two. She wants to love Seth, to let him love her – but if it is her magic that's controlling his passion, then she is as monstrous as the witch clan who are trying to use her amazing powers for their own gain.

Thursday Night Promo “Come for A Bite, Stay for Dessert”




Quotes(#10)


1.Adrian si Sidney.Bloodlines.
“I don't suppose that she gave you the job based on looks alone?"
Adrian had been staring off but now flashed me a big smile. "Why, Sage, you sweet talker."
"That's not what I meant! What happened?"
He shrugged. "I told the truth."
"Adrian!"
"I'm serious. She asked me what my greatest strength was. I said getting along with people."
"That's not bad." I admitted.
"Then she asked what my greatest weakness was. And I said, 'Where should I start?'"
"Adrian!"
"Stop saying my name like that. I told her the truth. By the time I was on the fourth one, she told me I could go.”



2.Shane ,Michael si Claire.Kiss of death.
“Shane looked down at the staked vamp at his feet. “Claire?”
 "Yes?”
"You staked a vampire with a number two pencil.”
 "I didn’t actually check the number.”
"Have I told you lately how freaking awesome you are?”
She tried to smile, but her heart was fluttering in her chest now, and not in a good way. “Compliments later.
"We really need to get out of here and get to the car. Any ideas?”
"Find another pencil and I’ll pin this one down, too,” Michael said.
"You know how weird that sounds, right?” Shane said. “Right, never mind. Number two pencil, coming up. Why do I feel like we’re taking a test?”



3.Patch si Nora.Silence.
“He inclined his head at my dress. "What's the occasion?"

"Homecoming," I said, twirling. "Like?"

"Last I heard, Homecoming requires a date."

"About that," i hedged. "I'm sort of...going with Scott. We both figure a high-school dance is the last place Hank will be patrolling."

Patch smiled, but it was tight. "I take that back. If Hank wants to shoot Scott, he has my blessing.”



4.Hermes.Percy,Martha si George.The Sea of Monsters.
“It doesn't matter if they hate you, or embarrass you, or simply don't appreciate your genius for inventing the internet-"
"You invented the internet?"
It was my idea, Martha said.
Rats are delicious, George said.
"It was my idea!" Hermes said. "I mean the internet, not the rats. But that's not the point.”



5.Kaylee si Tod.If i die.
“That's because Tod never brings anything but death and bad advice," I snapped.
"That's not true." Tod tried to grin, "Sometimes I bring pizza.”
