Recenzija: Mary Simses: Sezona borovnica


Debitantski roman Mary Simses osvojio me naslovom. Posljednjih nekoliko dana bili su najhladniji ove zime (a meni je u glavi već skoro proljeće i kladim se da nisam jedina), a unatoč tome što volim snijeg i svoje čizmice, polako mi već fale oni topliji dani. Zato me oduševio ovaj naslov iz Mozaik knjige.
Sezona borovnica
namamila me sjećanjima na toplinu, sunce i dakako, borovnice. Podsjetila me na sparne, lijene dane kad vrijeme provodimo uz sladoled i limunadu.
A postoji li bolji razlog da pročitamo knjigu nego saznanje da će nas ona povesti na put na neko novo mjesto i u neko drugo vrijeme?
Zasigurno ne postoji. Zato krenimo.

Review: Mary Simses: The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe


It was the title of this debute novel by Mary Simses that made me want to read it. The last seven days were the coldest one this winter and to be frank, even though I love winter and snow, I started missing summer. 
The Irresistible Blueberry Bakeshop & Cafe
reminded me of warmth, sun and of course, blueberries. It reminded me of hot, lazy days we spend eating ice cream and drinking lemonade. 
Is there a better reason to read the book than to travel to some other place or some other time?
Not for me, there's not.
So let's travel together.

Recenzija: Nick Spalding: On voli, ona voli


"Neki ljudi kažu da je ljubav droga i počinjem im vjerovati."

Da to nije onaj "običan" ljubavni roman na kakve smo navikli, postane jasno čim uzmemo u obzir da ga je napisao muškarac, no svejedno sam posegnula za On voli, ona voli iz Znanje što je bila najbolja odluka koju sam donijela ovaj tjedan.
Zapravo, sad dok ju pišem, napola sam uvjerena da ovom romanu nije potrebna nikakva recenzija koja bi čitatelja poticala da ga pročita. Kad ga uzmete u ruku, prolistate i pročitate 2-3 reda trebat će vam nešto što će vas odgovoriti da tom prilikom ne kupite odmah dva komada, jednu "radnu verziju" po kojoj će vam kapati suze od smijeha i drugu za buduće generacije.


Review: Nick Spalding: Love...From Both Sides


“No relationship is ever perfect, but when you truly love each other ... it doesn't have to be.” 

This is not your ordinary romance novel since it was written by a man (we all know women and men write romance somehow differently) and was not even intended to be a romance novel. But it kind of still is. Love...From Both Sides is a humorous novel that will make you laugh even if you try not to. 
Actually, now while I'm writing it, I get the feeling this novel doesn't even need to be presented in a review to make people want to read it. It suffices for you to open the book and read a line or two - and you'll be tempted not to buy two copies right away. On for you to immediately destroy with your tears of joy and one for later.

Recenzija: Holly Black: The Cruel Prince


Eh, da mi je sad 17 pa da se smijem zaljubiti u ovog princa...😜
Jednom sam počela čitati neki roman Holly Black, ali kao što ste vjerojatno primijetili, toliko mi se sviđao da sam mu čak zapamtila i ime. Noot.
Tako da nemam pojma koja me to strijela pogodila da se uputim u čitanje ovog romana, ali ova vrsta strijele slobodno me pogodi kadgod hoće.
The Cruel Prince 
naprosto je odličan. Radi se o prvom romanu iz trilogije The Folk of Air, u originalu objavljenom prije svega para tjedana. Sljedeći nastavak najavljen je tek za 2019, a ova  knjiga, naravno, nije neprevedena na hrvatskski.

Review: Holly Black: The Cruel Prince


I wish a was 17 again so nobody would look at me as if I've lost my mind for admiting to fall for the cruel prince... 😜
A few years back I've started reading one of Holly Black's novels, but you can make your own assumptions on how that went since I don't even remember its name anymore. 
So I have no idea how I ended up reading
The Cruel Prince, 
but god, I loved it!
The first novel in The Folk of Air trilogy, it was published last month and the next novel is to be published in 2019.

Recenzija: Mia Sheridan: Kyland


"Ne zaboravi da je ono što sada imaš nekada bilo samo ono čemu si se nadao."
 - Epikur

Kada bih trebala jednom riječju opisati ovaj roman, rekla bih da je to priča o nadi.
Drugi po redu iz serijala Znak ljubavi, iz Mozaik knjige stiže nam 
Kyland
roman Mie Sheridan. Trenutno ga možete kupiti u pretprodaji, što znači da uskoro dolazi u sve knjižare.
Jednim okom na zadnjim stranicama knjige, drugim već na blogu - tako nastaje ova recenzija. Nemam vremena ni predahnuti, trebam ga što prije krenuti hvaliti.


Review: Mia Sheridan: Kyland


"Remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for."
- Epicurus


If I would have to use only one word to describe this book I'd say hopeful. Today we're talking about the second novel in Sign of Love book series by Mia Sheridan, 

Kyland, published 2015.

I haven't even finished reading yet (have thee more pages to go while I'm writing this), and yet I'm already typing. I just can't wait to tell you about it.
