Hello My Darlings!My amazing Boyfriend got me a giftcard for my nameday…and I got to spend it last week. So here are the books I got. Let’s dive into it!
Sun on a twine blade Book I. by Dace Priede
There are many autobiographical motifs in the novel – it is a message about the complicated, contradictory life of a young actress Arta in Latvia in the 1970s, which is accompanied by the romantic imagination of the new Baron Jacques René, born in Arta’s fantasies.
To be honest this was a 100% cover buy. I loved the design and after reading the synopsis I was sold. Can’t wait to finally get to it.
The Ingredients of Love by Nicolas Barreau
There are no coincidences. Aurelie Bredin, a beautiful Parisian restaurateur, is sure of this truth. On a gloomy Friday in November, when Aurelie is feeling depressed after a breakup, she discovers a novel entitled ‘The Smiles of Women’ in a quaint bookshop on the Ile-St.-Louis. Astonishingly, her restaurant and she herself are featured in its pages. After reading the entire book in one night, Aurelie wishes more than anything to meet the author of the novel because she is convinced that, without even realising it, he has saved her life. However, her wish proves to be a difficult, almost impossible, endeavour.”
In Latvian, this one has another name,-Women’s smile. Interesting why did they change it, because The Ingredients of Love makes more sense. I do like the cover and the synopsis sounded like a light romance in Paris. I Will read it on the beach.
The Girls by Emma Cline
Northern California, during the violent end of the 1960s. At the start of summer, a lonely and thoughtful teenager, Evie Boyd, sees a group of girls in the park, and is immediately caught by their freedom, their careless dress, their dangerous aura of abandon. Soon, Evie is in thrall to Suzanne, a mesmerizing older girl, and is drawn into the circle of a soon-to-be infamous cult and the man who is its charismatic leader. Hidden in the hills, their sprawling ranch is eerie and run down, but to Evie, it is exotic, thrilling, charged—a place where she feels desperate to be accepted. As she spends more time away from her mother and the rhythms of her daily life, and as her obsession with Suzanne intensifies, Evie does not realize she is coming closer and closer to unthinkable violence, and to that moment in a girl’s life when everything can go horribly wrong.
Uuuu…This sounds amazing. A cult?In the 60s?Yes, please! I was sold. Before seeing it in the bookstore I did see it on bookstagram last year,so I knew people loved it. Can’t wait!
The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge
To earn a secret so profound, I would need to tell momentous lies, and make as many people as possible believe them…
Faith Sunderly leads a double life. To most people, she is modest and well mannered—a proper young lady who knows her place. But inside, Faith is burning with questions and curiosity. She keeps sharp watch of her surroundings and, therefore, knows secrets no one suspects her of knowing—like the real reason her family fled Kent to the close-knit island of Vane. And that her father’s death was no accident.
In pursuit of revenge and justice for the father she idolizes, Faith hunts through his possessions, where she discovers a strange tree. A tree that only bears fruit when she whispers a lie to it. The fruit, in turn, delivers a hidden truth. The tree might hold the key to her father’s murder. Or, it might lure the murderer directly to Faith herself, for lies—like fires, wild and crackling—quickly take on a life of their own.
LOOK AT THE COVER!!! Total cover buy…I mean, it’s soooo beautiful. And the synopsis sounds super good. I’m definitely getting to it this month.
