Review/recenzija: E.K.Johnston: A Thousand Nights/ Tisuću noći



Recenzija na hrvatskom jeziku je ispod recenzije na engleskom. 😚

A Thousand Nights. A novel by E.K.Johnston, as magical as it is unexpected. Intrigued by its covers, I couldn't wait to read this beauty, and now I can only say thank god I did! For those who will enjoy this book as much as I did, its sequel, Spindle, was published earlier this year, so go on and find it too. 
After those few words of praise, nothing's stopping me anymore from moving on and giving you all the reasons why you should read this book as soon as possible.

Review/recenzija: Elle Kennedy: The Deal/Pogodba



First of all, I have to admit I'm sorry not to read books by Elle Kennedy before. Whyyyyy didn't I?!
I've heard about this author only after one of Croatian publishers published the first novel in her Off-Campus series. Now I'm addicted. 
This review is about the first novel from the mentioned series, The Deal. There are 3 more novels in the series (The Mistake, The Score, The Goal), but those deserve their own reviews.

Review/recenzija: Sabaa Tahir: An Ember in the Ashes/Žar u peplu




Amazon named An Ember in the Ashes best young adult book of 2015, did you know that? I thought it would be a good post opener ;)
Film rights were optioned by Paramount Pictures in 2014, before the book was even published and Mark Johnson is to produce the film.  Are there any more excuses not to read this book? I don't think so.
If you want to know and see more, visit the official website of the author Sabaa Tahir and look for the book trailer. Do you like the costumes and the weapons? I can't wait this movie to finally happen!
Oh, and don't forget to look for the sequel, A Torch Against the Night. It was published a few months ago.

Interliber 2016: intervju s Nakladom Neptun



Stigao je kraj našoj apstinencijskoj krizi. Živjela najzdravija ovisnost na svijetu!

Danas je prvi dan omiljenog tjedna svakog istinskog knjigoljupca- tjedna u kojem se na jednom mjestu može pronaći najveća hrpa knjiga koju možete zamisliti- tjedna kada na Zagrebačkom Velesajmu uživamo u Interliberu! Hell yeah!



Neki nisu mogli odoljeti iskušenju pa su na sajam knjiga otišli već danas, a neki doma još uvijek marljivo rade na svojim popisima, črčkaju, precrtavaju i docrtavaju, tješe i bodre sami sebe. Nervozni smo, nestrpljivi i rijetko tko se može pohvaliti da mu živci ne vise o prilično tankoj niti. Nama koji volimo dobru knjigu ovo je prilika da po povoljnijoj cijeni nabavimo knjige za kojima patimo cijele godine (ili čak i duže), a izdavačima je ovo prilika da se pokažu u najboljem svjetlu i dokažu na čemu su to marljivo radili čitave godine.
