Books that I read and loved in 2013


Planuiesc postul asta de la inceputul saptamanii trecute si tot nu sunt sigura care sunt cartile pe care le voi alege. N-as vrea sa fac un top sau sa le pun in ordine, pentru ca sunt din genuri diferite, cu subiecte diferite si nu as vrea sa "discriminez" :)). Voi alege doar acele carti care m-au impresionat fiind originale sau m-au emotionat, m-au facut sa ma gandesc sau sa meditez la anumite lucruri. Da, au fost foarte multe carti bune, placute, amuzante, interesante, insa nu le pot pune pe toate. Voi alege doar cele mai si foarte foarte. Asa ca nu incepeti cu "n-a numit seria aia!" sau "cum de nu i-a placut cartea x?". 

Anul acesta am citit 219 carti. Nu planuiam sa citesc atatea, n-am citit din ambitie sa ating acest numar, ci am citit din placere. Mai ales ca mi-am propus sa citesc 50, apoi 100 si am tot crescut. Ma bucur de ce-am citit si sper ca si anul urmator sa fie la fel de bogat. Iar legat de ce voi alege, credeti-ma nici eu nu stiu:))) Repet, nu sunt in ordine, nu este top, doar asa le-am citit.



I'm planning this post from the beginning of last week and I'm not sure what are the books that I'll choose. I don't want to make a top or put them in order, because they are from different genres, with different subjects and I don't want to "discriminate" :)). I'll choose the books that impressed me being original or that made me feel so many emotions, made me think or meditate about some things. Yes, they were so many good books, lovely, funny, interesting, but I can't name all of them. I'll choose just the best books. So, don't start with "she didn't named that series!" or "How she didn't liked this?".

This year I read 219 books. I didn't planned to read so much, I dind't read by ambition to acheive this number, I read because I liked it. Especialy because first I wanted to read 50 books, then 100 and I wanted more. I'm glad for what I read and I hope that the next year would be the same. And speaking about what I'll choose, trust me I really don't know, but we'll see. I'll say again that they are not in order, is not a top, just like that I read them.

Books that I loved:

The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
Erebos by Ursula Poznanski
Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
Uglies (vol. 1-2) by Scott Westerfeld
House of Night Series (vol. 1-6) by
Eragon (The Inheritance Cycle) by Christopher Paolini
 La Vérité sur l'Affaire Harry Quebert by Joël Dicker
Starters (Starters, #1) by Lissa Price
Ice Station by Matthew Reilly
Millennium Series (1 &2) by Stieg Larsson
The Host by Stephenie Meyer
The Blooming Goddess Trilogy (vol. 1 &2 ) by Tellulah Darling
The Road to You by Marilyn Brant
Promise Me Series by
Intermix Nation by M.P. Attardo
Burn for Burn (Burn for Burn, #1) by Jenny Han
Draw Me In by Megan Squires
Reboot (Reboot, #1) by Amy Tintera
Cred ca acestea ar fi cele mai iubite carti si serii iubite de mine anul acesta. Stiu ca sunt multe, insa tinand cont cat am citit cred ca e bine. Poate ca unele nu sunt chiar geniale, insa mie mi-au placut si m-au facut sa ma simt bine. Sunt sigura ca daca as reface topul n-ar mai fi aceleasi titluri:))), si si asa unele le-am lasat pe dinafara ca: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, Casa îngerilor by Pascal Bruckner,  Altered (Altered, #1) by Jennifer Rush, The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg, On Dublin Street  by Samantha Young si altele.


 I think this are the most loved by me books and series this year. I know that are many, but thinking how much I read I think is good. Maybe some are not so amazing, but they made me feel good and I liked them. I'm sure that if I re-do the top won't be the same:)), besides I left some titles "outside" of the list, like: The Hundred-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson, Casa îngerilor by Pascal Bruckner,  Altered (Altered, #1) by Jennifer Rush, The Catastrophic History of You and Me by Jess Rothenberg, On Dublin Street  by Samantha Young and many more. 

Aceasta a fost lista mea, astept sa-mi spuneti si voi ce favorite aveti sau carti care v-au placut foarte mult. Daca vreti sa vedeti tot ce-am citit anul acesta anul va invit pe contul meu de Goodreads Aici .

So, this is my list, and if you want, you can say to me what are your favorite books or the books that you really liked. If you want to see all the books read by me this year I'll invite you on my Goodreads account Here .

9 Places Where You Need To Read

1. That corner stool at the bar. / Via Thistle Hill Tavern

The bartender needs a regular. The neighborhood needs a character. And you need a drink.

Like right there? That’s my reading spot.

2. That grassy knoll just over there. / Via Clueless

It’s not just for loadies anymore. Just ask Tai. Bring a kleenex. Allergies are the worst.

3. The subway. / Via Underground NYPL

Trust me - that cute person just over yonder is totes checking out your cover art.

4. The indie bookstore where they know your name.

Via Funny Face

Pull up a bookshelf. Cock one hip and lose yourself in the wonders of Tolstoy.

5. The coffee shop on the corner.

Why do you think they refuse to get wifi and got that almond milk you asked for? They want you.

6. Your couch.

Tell your roommate it’s time to get rid of the cable and embrace the luxurious embrace of college hand-me-downs.

7. The library. / Via Pennington Library

It’s not just for wifi and word processing you know.

8. The kitchen.

Via Friends

What? You have to read those recipes. If you don’t, the ground beef is going to end up in the trifle, and Joey Tribbiani doesn’t live next door!

9. The perfectly constructed pillow fort you claim is just a pile of artfully arranged throw pillows. / Via FuckYeahForts

Don’t lie! You built that thing in your sleep so you would have somewhere to curl up with your book this morning, and you KNOW it.

REVIEW - Reboot (Reboot #1) by Amy Tintera

Five years ago, Wren Connolly was shot three times in the chest. After 178 minutes she came back as a Reboot: stronger, faster, able to heal, and less emotional. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return. Wren 178 is the deadliest Reboot in the Republic of Texas. Now seventeen years old, she serves as a soldier for HARC (Human Advancement and Repopulation Corporation).

Wren’s favorite part of the job is training new Reboots, but her latest newbie is the worst she’s ever seen. As a 22, Callum Reyes is practically human. His reflexes are too slow, he’s always asking questions, and his ever-present smile is freaking her out. Yet there’s something about him she can’t ignore. When Callum refuses to follow an order, Wren is given one last chance to get him in line—or she’ll have to eliminate him. Wren has never disobeyed before and knows if she does, she’ll be eliminated, too. But she has also never felt as alive as she does around Callum.

The perfect soldier is done taking orders.

I wanted to read this book just after I saw it, because everything from the cover, the title and especialy the synopsis sounded good, full of suspense, original and action packed. And with a strong female character. So, what whould I asked more? And today I read it.

Some people say that they didn't liked it so much because of the romance part and for the relationship between Wren and Callum, but I didn't have a problem with that. Yes, the romance is there, but for me it wasn't cheesy or cliche. And somehow with the help of that relationship and because of Callum Wren start to have feelings again. And I think this is a good thing, because you can't feel like a human if you don't talk and stay near one. These Reboots are like robots, dead people that woke up, without feelings, that fight and kill and listen to the HARC. The longer Reboots are dead, the less human they are when they return.

This book is different from the other dystopias, because for me was more like war, blood everywhere, no emotion, and kind of nobody wanted this to stop. Until Wren, 178, wanted to escape from this thing. Is kind of weird that people from inside want the thing to end, no? But would Wren escape? Would she change so much that the idea of working for the HARC, killing people, having a roof, food and clothes won't be now enough? Would Callum change her? Or she will remain the same, the good soldier, the emotionless one, the one who is having fun seeing newbies failing training and the one who hates the people screams?

Reboot was a really good book and with every page the story got better, and I wanted to know more, to find out more about Wren and how she's so special, and what is all the thing about HARC, and how the normal people could survive. Is really interesting how the Reboots are separated by the grade, let's say, or the number that they have, and how the all idea is put in practice. It was really cool to see such a society and if it wasn't kind of bad maybe I would made a visit there. :))

And after I read Reboot from what I heard I really didn't know what to think about Callum, I mean he's a 22, the slowest number, almost human. What this kid could know and do? But he's not so stupid. He's like a normal human, kind of a paria for the Reboots, but he's smart, and serious and hard working and helps Wren. I think these two are ok together, as friends and maybe more. But this after Callum learn to fight and stop to smile, and Wren stop getting angry on him and stop punching him :))) 

So, guys, if you want to read something original, action packed, full of suspense, a dystopia story, with a strong female character, about friendship and love, and feelings and survivial then this is good. I'm sure you'll enjoy and like me you would wait for the sequel. Is really, really good! And if you want me to say more I was drowned in the story from the first line. First line, guys! Read it!

17 Problems Only Book Lovers Will Understand


Cum umblam eu asa am gasit acest articol si m-am gandit sa vi-l arat si voua, doar suntem cu totii iubitori de carti. L-am furat de pe  buzzfeed .


I was looking around and I found this article, and I thought that you want to see it too. Because we are book lovers, no? I stole it from buzzfeed .

1. When someone asks you what your favorite book is and expects you to pick just one.


2. When someone interrupts your reading.


Because, really, a book is basically a Do Not Disturb sign.


3. When the movie version of a book gets everything wrong.


4. And completely ruins your mental images of characters.


5. When someone you like tells you they don’t like to read.


6. When you forget to eat or sleep because a book is so good.


7. When your favorite character dies.


And you pretend they’re still alive but it’s just not the same.


8. When a book you love gets a harsh review.


9. When an author stops writing mid-series.


10. When someone spoils the ending of a book.


Or worse, the ending of an entire series.


11. When you walk into a bookstore.


12. When you lend someone a book and get it back in terrible condition.


13. Or never get it back at all.


14. When you finish a book and have to wait a year for the sequel.


15. When a book makes you cry hysterically in public and everyone thinks you’re crazy.


16. When no one gets your obscure literary reference.


17. When someone says you read too much.


Because you know there’s no such thing as too many books.

Va regasiti?:) Eu foarte mult:))

What do you think? For me they are all right.
