Missão Cumprida!!!

cam01932_ Ser fã não é tarefa fácil, mas a recompensa por esperar 3 horas de pé em uma fila por alguns autógrafos é bastante válida. E se é difícil para gente esperar imagina o tamanho da câimbra da autora no final da sessão.

Mas a Tammara Webber aguentou firme e forte, ate a última doida da fila ficar satisfeita, e com uma sorriso no rosto, cansado mas estava presente. Obrigada Tammara pela visita. cam01949_

cam01902_ E Andreia Manzotti, obrigada por mais essa aventura 😉 Por que São Paulo não é fácil.

Mas vou deixar mais claro esse blabla, ontem (06/11/2014) tive o prazer de participar do lançamento de Breakable da Tammara Weber, pela Editora Versus na Saraiva do Shopping Patio Paulista. Apesar das senhas não terem esgotado a presença dos fãs foi notável. Esse romance acompanha o primeiro da serie o livro chamado Easy, mas não é uma sequencia e sim o ponto de vista e historia do Lucas.

Breakable por Tammara Weber

breakable-tammara-webber 5 stars

Um dos melhores livros que eu já li ate hoje, Breakable entrou para os meus TOP 5 com uma intensidade assustadora, só espero que ele seja publicado aqui no Brasil o mais rápido possível, já que Easy que é a primeira versão dessa historia da Tammara Weber pode ser encontrado em nossas livrarias.

Mas vendas a parte, vamos ao que interessa, depois de dar 5 estrelas para o romance de Jacqueline e Landon Lucas Maxfield eu deveria estar acostumada com a bela escrita de Tammara já que fiquei muito feliz quando vi o lançamento de Breakable, que ate então na minha mente nada mais era que o ponto de vista do Lucas, como esta em alta fazer nos romances New Adult. Doce engano meu e maravilhosa surpresa tive a cada pagina que passava, Breakable não é simplesmente a versão com o eu lírico masculino do mesmo romance já lido em Easy, mas sim a historia Lucas do começo ao fim. È difícil entrar em detalhes sem chegar nos spoilers, mais difícil ainda é tentar me expressar a respeito de uma obra moderna tão perfeita em uma categoria de livros muitas vezes banalizada.

“Eu estava cheio de desejos irracionais de ser o que eu nunca poderia ser, novamente, para ter o que eu nunca poderia ter. Eu queria estar inteira” (tradução livre)

O que posso dizer aqui é que Tammara definitivamente aumentou e muito o padrão de qualidade dos New Adult e provou com uma maestria de uso das palavras que não basta ser publicado tem que ser arrebatador.
Faz 3 dias que terminei o livro e esperei para escrever essa resenha e começar a ler outro, primeiro por que não queria a influencia de outra historia em minha mente e segundo por que tamanha foi a magnitude do impacto das palavras de Tammara em mim, com o sentimentos, sofrimentos, descoberta, realização e alegrias de Lucas, que precisei de um período para processar tudo. Meu marido me perguntou por que tudo isso, como que eu estava assim, eu tentei explicar me referindo a como ele se sente quando escuta uma musica ou líricas boas, quando uma pessoa tem o dom da escrita é indescritível o sentimento gerado em cada um mas imprescindível a vontade de dividir com os outros aquela emoção.

“Ela conjurou amor no coração de um homem cuja alma tinha sido congelada por anos, anestesiado pelo excesso de dor e culpa para suportar.”

Então fica aqui minha sugestão do momento 😉 Espero que gostem tanto quando eu!

Breakable by Tammara Weber

One of the best books I’ve read until now, Breakable joined my TOP 5 with a frightening intensity. After giving 5 stars to Jacqueline Lucas and Landon Maxfield’s romance I should be accustomed to the beautiful writing of Tammara, seeing as how very happy I was by the news of the release of Breakable, which until then in my mind was nothing more than Lucas point of view, as is a current style on the New Adult novels. Sweet mistake and wonderful surprise with each passing page, Breakable is not simply the version with the male vision of the same romance read in Easy, but Lucas story from beginning to end. It is difficult to go into detail without giving spoilers, even harder is trying to express myself about a perfect modern work as this one in a category of books often trivialized.

“I was full of irrational desires to be what I could never be again, to have what I could never have. I wanted to be whole”

What I can say here is that Tammara definitely increased the quality standard of the New Adult gender and proved with a mastery use of words that it is not enough to be published you must be enthralling.

It’s been 3 days that I finished the book and waited to write this review and to start reading another book, first I didn’t want the influence of another story in my mind and second that such was the magnitude of the impact of Tammara’s words on me with the feelings, sufferings, discovery, fulfillment and joys of Lucas, I needed a period to process everything. My husband asked me why all this, how come I was feeling like that, and so I tried to explain referring to how he feels when listening to a good lyrical or music, that when a person has the gift of writing is indescribable the feeling generated in each of us but essential the desire to share that thrill with others .

“She conjured love in the heart of a man whose soul had been frozen for years, anaesthetized by too much pain and guilt to bear.”

So here is my suggestion for now 😉 Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I did!

Positively a successful start of 2014

cozy_club_ano3
I can definitely say I started the year in high spirits, with two romances of deferent series that made this past few absolutely enjoyable. Granted, I adore Robyn Carr and Samantha Young, completely different writing but remarkable just the same. So is no wonder that I was in ecstasy on January 7, 2014 with the release of Before Jamaica Lane. But last back up a little, since I started the year reading The Hero by Robyn Carr. Here are some thoughts.

The Hero 3 stars
Thunder Point Series by Robyn Carr
3 novels – The Wonderer, The Newcomer and The Hero. A release in March 1, 2014 of The Chance.

After reading all of Virgin River books, is easy to affirm that I had high hopes for this new series of Robin, but unfortunately I have to say that it started slow, boarding on boring actually, but being Robyn Carr I wasn’t discourage and kept going and it’s so good that I did because “The Hero” was well worth the wait, charming and infectious, the story takes us in a journey of discovery, courage and love, but with that big foot on reality, that makes Robin’s novels so special.

Happy New Year Robin, here for an even better one in The Chance 😉

17766752 4/5 stars
On Dublin Street Series by Samantha Young
3 novels – On Dublin Street, Down London Road, Before Jamaica Lane. A short store named Until Fountain and a release in June 3, 2014 of Fall From India Place.

Hold on to you knickers ladies, or panties for the mortals, the improbable happened, Samantha was once again able to reach perfection with Before Jamaica Lane, just as she did on the first novel with Joss and Braden. Now last be real, if you read On Dublin Street you’ll know what I mean, it wasn’t possible to think that new characters throw in the last book could reach the high standards of our bitchy Joss and man cave Braden, but Samantha Young manage that just right with the lovely Liv and handsome Nate. You’ll cry, laugh, throw a fit, but mainly you’ll fall in love, again and again, because that’s how it is with this series. Oh and last not forget to mention how sexy and steamy it all are.

So hand up for the fascinating Scotland and divine Samantha Young, that 2014 brings us many more from where all this came from 🙂

These days, his easygoing manner is being tested by his high-octane career as a navy pilot. But for the Riordan brothers, when the going gets tough…the tough find the love of a good woman.

Except the woman who has caught Patrick’s attention is Jack Sheridan’s very attractive niece. Angie LeCroix comes to Virgin River to spend Christmas relaxing, away from her well-intentioned but hovering mother. Yet instead of freedom, she gets Jack Sheridan.

4 stars

Noelle Perkins just got a second chance at life, and she intends to make the most of every minute. That’s why she ditched a frustrating legal career to open her own store in Fool’s Gold, California. The Christmas Attic celebrates everything that’s magical about her favorite season. Business is booming, and as a bonus, gorgeous army doctor Gabriel Boylan has offered to help out during the holiday rush.

Gabriel’s memories of Christmas past contain more sour grapes than sugar plums, thanks to a drill sergeant father who ran his home like a boot camp. Spending the holidays with his family while he recuperates from injury sounds as appetizing as last year’s eggnog. Still, there are some enjoyable distractions in town, including sunny, sexy Noelle…and the red-hot mistletoe kisses they can’t stop sharing.Gabriel didn’t think he was made for happily-ever-afters. But when fate hands you a love as sweet and surprising as this, only a fool could refuse….”

Em Chamas – Jogos Vorazes #2

jogosvorazes-emchamas-poster-brasil 5 stars
Olá pessoas…\o/
Minha primeira resenha no blog e não podia começar melhor, venho falar da minha série de livros favorita: Jogos Vorazes de Suzanne Collins. Hoje especificamente será sobre o filme que está nos cinemas: Em Chamas, o segundo da trilogia.

O primeiro filme Jogos Vorazes foi bom, mas como muitas das adaptações para o cinema, deixou a desejar, faltou entendimento e maturidade, mas não foi tão decepcionante ao ponto de não me levar ao cinema para acompanhar sua sequência, e por isso estou aqui hoje e posso falar com convicção que Em Chamas me surpreendeu, considero esse o livro mais dinâmico da série e é com alegria que expresso minha opinião de que foi a melhor adaptação nos últimos tempos.

Com aventura, drama, romance e inteligência, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), muito mais forte e determinada, volta em cena como vencedora da ultima edição dos Jogos Vorazes e principalmente como a nova esperança dos Distritos devastados de Panem que clamam por vingança. Em Chamas é cheio de reviravoltas, é nele que as alianças são formadas, laços estreitados, o verdadeiro inimigo revelado e os jogos perdem o foco para dar inicio a um novo propósito: a revolução.

Referente às atuações, todo o elenco está de parabéns, acreditei em cada lágrima de Katniss, cada sentimento de Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), em cada novo tributo e em cada morador de Panem. O amadurecimento do filme é tangível e se deu no momento certo que a série mais precisava para levar fãs alucinados a uma ansiosa espera de sua continuação. Peeta apareceu pouco, mas estava perfeito em cada momento, sua paixão e paciência com Katniss, levaram todos aos suspiros. Uma grande revelação foi Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) que se mostrou uma mistura entre perfeição, diversão e encanto.
Em Chamas conseguiu trazer a grande essência da serie Jogos Vorazes, me emocionei, arrepiei, chorei e torci por Katniss, Peeta e todos os tributos. Mudanças foram feitas, todo livro precisa de adaptações para o cinema, mas o filme me deu saudades dos livros. Não sei ao certo a sensação das pessoas que nunca tiveram contato com os livros da série, mas para essa singela leitora e fã, foi surpreendente e perfeito.

E que venha Mockingjay. ^^

Jogos-Vorazes-Em-Chamas-banner-vitoria

Sinopse:
“Depois dos Jogos Vorazes, a competição entre jovens transmitida ao vivo para todos os distritos de Panem, Katniss agora terá que enfrentar a represália da Capital e decidir que caminho tomar quando descobre que suas atitudes nos jogos incitaram rebeliões em alguns distritos. Dessa vez, além de lutar por sua própria vida, terá que proteger seus amigos e familiares e, talvez, todo o povo de Panem.”
