    Recenzie “Viata Secreta a Albinelor” de Sue Monk Kidd

    “Povestea unei tinere orfane care descopera ca dragostea poate fi gasita in cele mai neasteptate locuri. ” – The Washington Post Atentie! Aceasta recenzie contine spoilere! Cartea aceasta incepe prin a ne povesti viata unei tinere, Lily Owens de paisprezece ani, orfana de mama, care locuieste cu tatal ei abuziv. De cand mama ei a murit dintr-o trista greseala, Lily este in grija servitoarei lor de culoare, Rosaleen. In anii respectivi, oamenii de culoare nu aveau drepturi egale cu cei albi iar cei din urma se simteau superiori fata de cei de culoare. Lily insa nu a fost infectata cu acest “virus” al rasismului. Printr-o nefericita si nedreapta intamplare, Rosaleen…

    L.O.V.E. After 1 Year of Marriage

    I wrote a few thoughts on “L.O.V.E. After 1 Year of Marriage” in my notebook and I wanted to share with you some ideas. I hope they’re useful. In a few months, we will accomplish 2 years of marriage and that’s just crazy. We met in 2013, almost 4 years ago and life has been just amazing to us. We have received so many blessings from above along the way, we don’t have a lifetime to thank God for them. If I could go back in time, I wouldn’t change a thing, I would still pick him as my husband. Today I want to talk to you about some things…

    The Books I Loved in 2016

    As you already know, I LOVE BOOKS!! A LOT! 🙂 They’re my passion, not just a hobby of mine, they’re a way of living my life. These are The Books I Loved in 2016. My books get me through boredom or sad times. Books are a great gift for humanity. I can’t imagine my life without reading, I just can’t. I wasn’t always a bookaholic, in fact, in high school, I didn’t read almost anything, I simply didn’t like reading. But now I devour books, I read in the morning, afternoon and at night. There are people that say that they don’t have time to read while watching tv. They’re lying. They don’t…

    5 Carti pana la Craciun. #5cartipanalacraciun

    Zilele trecute am dat peste un blog foarte interesant. Cred ca stiti deja, era ori cu retete ori despre carti, nu? 😀 Acest blog este in cea mai mare parte despre carti si m-a incantat. Blogul e foarte frumos aranjat si ingrijit iar acest lucru iese in evidenta. Mai multe detalii si postari puteti gasi aici. Pe acest blog am vazut si o postare, pe care o gasiti aici, tot despre carti, dar in concret, despre a termina cartile acelea care sunt neterminate din biblioteca noastra. Mi s-a parut foarte interesant dar m-am si speriat putin, nestiind daca sa particip la aceasta invitatie sau nu. De ce? Pentru ca mi-e foarte greu sa termin cartile care…

    Campania nationala de sustinere a bloggerilor

    Saptamana aceasta am citit despre echipa de la Thecon.ro si campania de sustinere a bloggerilor, cum ca iti imbunatatesc pagina web in 2 ore. M-am inscris dar nu aveam sperante sa ma contacteze prea curand, stiind ca foarte multe persoane s-au inscris. Spre uimirea mea m-au contactat in mai putin de 2 zile. 🙂 De cand am blogul, nu l-am putut upgrada foarte mult, pentru ca nu ma pricep, dar le-am spus ce imi doresc sa se imbunatateasca si au facut. 🙂 Blogul meu arata mai bine si mai ordonat. Voiam tare mult sa am niste meniuri orizontale, in care sa depozitez toate postarile mele, sa fie frumos aranjate pe…

    A-Z Challenge (Book-A Walk to Remember)

    This is the A-Z Challenge for the book “A walk to remember”. After I started reading Sparks’ books, I read this one and I liked it very much. I must say, I don’t like the book as much as I loved the movie, maybe it’s because I watched the movie years ago, several times before I read the actual book. The story of the book is about two teenagers, Landon and Jamie. They are going to the same school but they’re very different from each other. Landon is a player and Jamie is a nice and quiet girl. They look like they don’t have anything in common and maybe they…

    A-Z Challenge (Book-Tending Roses)

    Lisa Wingate writes both Accent novels and contemporary romances for NAL.  She lives with her husband and two sons in the central Texas hill country, where she is a popular inspirational speaker, writing instructor, and magazine columnist. (Barnes and Noble website) Tending Roses, by Lisa Wingate, on Bookdepository This is the first book I’ve read from Lisa Wingate and I really liked it. I like reading Christian books, novels but also devotionals, even if you read only novels, you can learn so much from the authors. I liked this book very much, I truly love books that talk about family, about their struggle and how they resolve their problems with…

    A-Z Challenge (Book-The Sea Wolf)

    The Sea-Wolf is a 1904 psychological adventure novel by American novelist Jack London. The book’s protagonist, Humphrey van Weyden, is a literary critic who is a survivor of an ocean collision and who comes under the dominance of Wolf Larsen, the powerful and amoral sea captain who rescues him. Its first printing of forty thousand copies was immediately sold out before publication on the strength of London’s previous The Call of the Wild. Ambrose Bierce wrote, “The great thing—and it is among the greatest of things—is that tremendous creation, Wolf Larsen… the hewing out and setting up of such a figure is enough for a man to do in one lifetime……

    A-Z Challenge (Book-Redeeming Love)

    This is my personal review of the book Redeeming Love. It’s a sad story about a girl in search of love. I don’t like reading books on my computer, I like to have them in my hands, to turn the pages, there’s nothing like that feeling, I’m sure you know it. 🙂 But I had this book on my computer so I didn’t want to buy it, and I read it there because I didn’t have much choice, but I don’t like that. This book was amazing, I read it with such joy and pleasure, I liked it very much. Redeeming Love, by Francine Rivers, is a historical romance novel set…

    A-Z Challenge (Book-Quo Vadis)

    Quo Vadis: A Narrative of the Time of Nero, commonly known as Quo Vadis, is a historical novel written by Henryk Sienkiewicz inPolish. “Quo Vadis Domine” is Latin for “Where are you going, Lord?” and alludes to the apocryphal Acts of Peter, in which Peter flees Rome but on his way meets Jesus and asks him why he is going to Rome. Jesus says, “I am going back to be crucified again”, which makes Peter go back to Rome and accept martyrdom. (Wikipedia) Quo Vadis, on Bookdepository I can’t even begin to tell you how much I loved this book, like many other books I’ve read. The story is about…
