Name Day Book Haul from Zvaigzne ABC

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

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

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

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

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

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

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

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

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.

New Year,New Books!-ebook haul

Hello My Darlings!And Welcome if you are new here,I’m Anna and I read a lot of books. So today we are talking about  THE BOOKS I got. I have too many books… unread books,and I still get more. Who is with me on this?!Most of those are cover buys…because I’m a sucker for a good cover. So let’s dive into it.

The Vine Witch(The Vine Witch #1)by Luanne G. Smith 

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

46015350. sy475 For centuries, the vineyards at Château Renard have depended on the talent of their vine witches, whose spells help create the world-renowned wine of the Chanceaux Valley. Then the skill of divining harvests fell into ruin when sorcière Elena Boureanu was blindsided by a curse. Now, after breaking the spell that confined her to the shallows of a marshland and weakened her magic, Elena is struggling to return to her former life. And the vineyard she was destined to inherit is now in the possession of a handsome stranger.

Vigneron Jean-Paul Martel naively favors science over superstition, and he certainly doesn’t endorse the locals’ belief in witches. But Elena knows a hex when she sees one, and the vineyard is covered in them. To stay on and help the vines recover, she’ll have to hide her true identity, along with her plans for revenge against whoever stole seven winters of her life. And she won’t rest until she can defy the evil powers that are still a threat to herself, Jean-Paul, and the ancient vine-witch legacy in the rolling hills of the Chanceaux Valley.

The Portal(Tangled in Time #1)by Kathryn Lasky

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

40604799Life used to be great for Rose: full of friends, a loving mom, and a growing fashion blog.

But when her mother dies in a car crash, Rose is sent away to live with a strange grandmother she hardly knows and forced to attend a new school where mean girls ridicule her at every turn.

The one place Rose finds refuge is in her grandmother’s Tudor-style greenhouse. But one night, she sees a strange light glowing from within it. She climbs a ladder to investigate . . . and finds herself transported back four hundred years to Hatfield Palace, where she becomes servant and confidante of the banished princess Elizabeth, daughter of King Henry VIII. Rose soon discovers something else surprising—a locket with two mysterious images inside it, both of them clues to her own past.

Could her grandmother’s greenhouse portal offer answers to the mysteries of her family . . . and their secrets? And how will she ever unravel them all?

The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

54221749In December 1926, Agatha Christie goes missing. Investigators find her empty car on the edge of a deep, gloomy pond, the only clues some tire tracks nearby and a fur coat left in the car—strange for a frigid night. Her husband and daughter have no knowledge of her whereabouts, and England unleashes an unprecedented manhunt to find the up-and-coming mystery author. Eleven days later, she reappears, just as mysteriously as she disappeared, claiming amnesia and providing no explanations for her time away.

The puzzle of those missing eleven days has persisted. With her trademark exploration into the shadows of history, acclaimed author Marie Benedict brings us into the world of Agatha Christie, imagining why such a brilliant woman would find herself at the center of such a murky story.

Vicious(Villains #1)by V.E. Schwab

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

18180495Victor and Eli started out as college roommates—brilliant, arrogant, lonely boys who recognized the same sharpness and ambition in each other. In their senior year, a shared research interest in adrenaline, near-death experiences, and seemingly supernatural events reveals an intriguing possibility: that under the right conditions, someone could develop extraordinary abilities. But when their thesis moves from the academic to the experimental, things go horribly wrong.

Ten years later, Victor breaks out of prison, determined to catch up to his old friend (now foe), aided by a young girl whose reserved nature obscures a stunning ability. Meanwhile, Eli is on a mission to eradicate every other super-powered person that he can find—aside from his sidekick, an enigmatic woman with an unbreakable will. Armed with terrible power on both sides, driven by the memory of betrayal and loss, the archnemeses have set a course for revenge—but who will be left alive at the end?

Lore by Alexandra Bracken

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

53375824

Every seven years, the Agon begins. As punishment for a past rebellion, nine Greek gods are forced to walk the earth as mortals, hunted by the descendants of ancient bloodlines, all eager to kill a god and seize their divine power and immortality.
Long ago, Lore Perseous fled that brutal world in the wake of her family’s sadistic murder by a rival line, turning her back on the hunt’s promises of eternal glory. For years she’s pushed away any thought of revenge against the man–now a god–responsible for their deaths.

Yet as the next hunt dawns over New York City, two participants seek out her help: Castor, a childhood friend of Lore believed long dead, and a gravely wounded Athena, among the last of the original gods.

The best cheap earphones I have ever got!

*Latvia is going on Quarantine for 2 weeks, so I got ebooks* – Haul

Hello, My Darlings! How are you all feeling? So in Latvia because of this pandemic, schools and universities are closed until the 14 of April. All events are canceled until April and our borders are closing too. So no coming to Latvia or leaving for some time. The first-day people where panicking, buying toilet paper and buckwheat. It was a mess, but now…I can totally feel the vibe is much more relaxed. But let’s not talk about the bad thing, let’s talk about books! I got some books to read , let’s dive into it.


My Perfect Wife
joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
49344568._SY475_I finally have everything I ever wanted. A home with floor-to-ceiling windows, a devoted husband who dazzles everyone he meets, and two angelic children I adore. But as I watch my husband chatting with the girl next door, I wonder if anyone can see the sadness in my pretty pink smile, or hear the scream behind my straight white teeth?

I know I’m crazy to think there’s a hint of desire in his eyes.

I know it’s madness to see a flicker of fear in hers.

I know all this, because I’ve been wrong before.

And if I’m wrong again, he’ll try to take my children away.

The party is my last chance to prove to my husband that I’m on the mend, that I can handle something as simple as a drinks reception without snapping under the pressure. It’s all going perfectly until I see something in the swimming pool that changes everything. But if I can’t trust myself to believe it’s real, who will?

A totally unputdownable page-turner about the darker side of love and what really goes on under the surface of perfect-looking lives. Clever and unexpected, this book will have you gripped from the very first page until the dramatic final twist. Fans of The Wife Between Us and The Mother-in-Law will be hooked.

 
Why I got it : The description sounded very intriguing. I love thrillers and mysteries, and what can be better than domestic suspense? A great book to read on a rainy day.
The Modern Faerie Tales: Tithe; Valiant; Ironside

(Modern Faerie Tales #1-3)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
43069636Holly Black’s acclaimed Modern Faerie Tales series is now available in this special bind-up edition featuring all three books!

Sixteen-year-old Kaye is a modern nomad. Fierce and independent, she travels from city to city with her mother’s rock band until an ominous attack forces Kaye back to her childhood home. There, amid the industrial, blue-collar New Jersey backdrop, Kaye soon finds herself as an unwilling pawn in an ancient power struggle between two rival faerie kingdoms–a struggle that could very well mean her death.

This special bind-up edition includes TitheValiant, and Ironside

Why I got it : I love Holly Black’s writing, and this sounded like something I will enjoy. And guys…the cover, I need it as a physical book.Can’t wait to read it and give you my honest thoughts.
The Fae Hunter’s Daughter and
The Shadow Coven

(Whims of Witchesbook 1 and 2)

43705896-horz
joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
When Eden discovers she has magic, she’s thrown into the middle of a supernatural world she never knew existed.
Everything was normal in Eden Brooks’ life until two weeks ago, when in a moment of frustration, she threw a remote across the living room at her twin sister—with her mind. But that’s not all. Somehow, she can make water boil and start a fire without a match.

At first, Eden keeps her newfound abilities a secret. Until she meets Nox at the park near her house. He’s mysterious, witty, and not bad to look at. But more than that, he has magic of his own.

But as Eden gets to know him, she learns his powers aren’t the same as hers and that his motives aren’t as selfless as he pretends. When her dad sees the two of them together, he forbids her from seeing him ever again.

Soon, she learns truths about her father she never thought possible, leading Eden to question everything she knows.

The Fae Hunter’s Daughter is the first book in Whims of Witches, a stand-alone series which takes places in the same world, after the events of the Whims of Fae series.

 

Why I got it : Can we all appreciate the covers?! This was a total cover buy for me, I hope those books will be good. Have you read them? Did you like it?

Of Beast and Beauty

(Daughters of Eville #1)

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash
Something evil this way comes.
7 Vengeful Sisters
7 Fairytale Kingdoms
7 Daughters of Eville

Everyone dreams of marrying a prince—except for me. I am nothing more than a pawn in my adoptive mother’s diabolical plot against the seven kingdoms.I was the chosen tool, her sharpened blade that would cut the deepest into the heart of the Kingdom of Baist. But like all deadly weapons, my wedding is two-edged sword that could cost me my soul.

For I am Rosalie, one of the adopted daughters of Lady Eville, and it is my duty to enter into a loveless and hate-filled marriage with the narcissistic Crown Prince of Baist. My choices and heart are not my own to give. Yet even in the thick of dire situations, beastly vengeance can give way to beautiful attraction

Of Glass and Glamour

(Daughters of Eville #2)

Born under a hunter’s moon, abandoned as a child, I was raised to be a powerful sorceress—okay, a mediocre sorceress. All right, I’m good at glamour and can make things sparkle, if my spells don’t backfire. It was foretold long ago that I was a child of prophecy that would unite the fae and humans of Candor. The only problem, no one told me, and now the king wants me dead.

For I am Eden, one of the adoptive daughters of Lady Eville, and I have to attend the royal masquerade ball—not to win a prince, but to avenge my parents. Even if it means pretending to be a fairy godmother and wreaking a little havoc.

 

Why I got it : I love retellings and those sounded amazing! I have never heard of this author and can’t wait to read something from someone I haven’t yet discovered.

I got some new Stuff- Avon “Skin and Body care” Haul

Hello, My Darlings! And Hey if you are new here, it’s so nice to see you! Today I want to talk about some goodies I got from Avon. I didn’t really plan to get anything this month, but me being sick for 2 weeks and the catalog just sitting on the table…well I made an order(yes, I have no self-control when it comes to pretty cosmetic bottles). So I paid for all of those goodies around 20 euros, cheaper than our drugstores (We Love Saving Money) . Let’s dive into the Haul!

Naturals skincare Hydrating “Aloe & Cotton” face cream and Naturals skincare Hydrating “Aloe & Cotton” face mask

Why I got it – I got those both for my mom. She has dry skin and this sounded like something she would enjoy. The face cream and mask has a very nice light aloe scent(you know, THAT scent). Isn’t greasy.

Naturals hair care Full Volume Shampoo (raspberry & hibiscus)

Why I got it – This is a HUGE bottle(and I love it)! The price was decent (3,88 euro for 700 ml bottle) so I decided to get it. I already tried it, and I can say I like it. It does give you volume, but not over the top one. Now I want to try more of those shampoos.

Oriflame “Love Nature” for oily/combination skin – First impressions

IMG_20200202_154641

About the “Love Nature’ lineLove Nature celebrates ingredients from nature that smell and feel fantastic. Every pleasurable product has been created to benefit your body and respect the planet.

Purifying Gel wash with Organic Tea Tree & Lime

(125 ml)

About the product: GO FROM OILY TO ON POINT!

Great-looking skin starts with good defense and oily skin doesn’t stand a chance against the natural purifying goodness of Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying Gel Wash.

Formulated without parabens and featuring organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, this light-foaming floral-citrus scented gel wash works to instantly purify the skin while removing make-up, impurities, excess sebum, and oil.

Blemish-prone skin? Never fear, it also contains salicylic acid to help target blemishes. It’s also dermatologically-tested and non-comedogenic.

And on top of doing your skin a favor, you’ll be helping Mother Nature because its formulation is silicone-free and biodegradable!

First impressions – I have already tried this one and can say, this is a really good face wash! It gives you a slight cooling feeling after washing it off, helps with mattifying your face for hours(I was shocked about it), the only thing I don’t like is how much you need. This is not a product where “a little goes a long way”, you need a decent amount to really wash your face. For now, I’m very happy with this product.

 

Purifying 2-in-1 Mask & Scrub with Organic Tea Tree & Lime(75 ml)

About the product: It’s no secret, oily skin loves a good, deep cleansing. And with Love Nature Tea Tree & Lime Purifying 2in1 Mask & Scrub you’ll never disappoint!

Designed as a convenient multi-purpose mask and scrub, it’s infused with all the goodness of organic Tea Tree essential oil and super ingredient Lime, making it the go-to solution for a deep and meaningful cleanse. But it won’t stop there… It also works to exfoliate your skin, helps to minimize the appearance of pores and even contains salicylic acid to target blemish-prone skin.

So, whether you only have time for a quick scrub, or can afford a little more “me time” for a mask, you can look forward to skin that is smooth, mattified and radiant.

More good news is, it’s alcohol and paraben-free and dermatologically tested – not to mention kind to the planet because the formulation uses only natural-origin exfoliating particles and is biodegradable and silicone-free!

First impressions – Another one I already tried(but as a Scrub, not a Mask). It’s a very “light” scrub, not harsh at all. Has a pleasant tea tree scent.

 

Cucumber Refreshing Gel Mask for Combination skin(10 ml)

IMG_20200202_154815

About the product:  Love Nature Gel Mask Cucumber is a refreshing, cooling gel mask sachet with natural cucumber to revitalize the skin. Cucumber extract is rich in vitamin C and helps to hydrate and invigorate. Suitable for combination skin. Dermatologically tested.

First impressions – I haven’t tried this one, but can’t wait to do so. I do love those “one use” face masks from Oriflame.

 

Clarifying Clay Mask with Organic Rice & White Tea for All Skin Types(10 ml)

IMG_20200202_154750

PERFECT FOR ON-THE-GO!

About the product: Single-use clay mask in a fun format with super ingredient white tea, and rice.

  • Helps to purify the skin with White Tea
  • Paraben-free and biodegradable formula

First impressions – Another I haven’t tried yet, but can already say that I hate the packaging. I never use up those “single-use” masks, and this packaging ..well we don’t get along, let’s leave it like that!

 

Cucumber facial kit

IMG_20200202_154725

Cucumber Face Gel(30 ml)

Light-textured facial gel with natural Cucumber extract. It helps to moisturize, soften and provide cooling, soothing relief for the skin. Promotes hydrated and refreshed skin feeling. Dermatologically tested. All skin types.

Cucumber Face mask(30 ml)

Face mask with hydrating glycerine that helps cleanse the skin, absorbs excess fat and rejuvenates the lifeless skin. The formulation also contains a white clay that cleanses the skin and removes impurities and the natural extract of cucumber that refreshes the skin. Dermatologically tested. For all skin types.

Cucumber Scrub(30 ml)

Love Nature Face Scrub Cucumber is a hydrating gel-based scrub, composed with cucumber extract. Purifies, helps the pores to unclog and contains exfoliating particles to gently remove dead skin cells. Gives the skin a smooth, soft, fresh and radiant feeling. Apply by massaging on the moist skin – avoid the eye area – and rinse well. Dermatologically tested. All skin types.

First impressions –  This looks like something perfect for traveling, small 30 ml bottles with everything you need for your skin! I’m leaving it unopen until summer or at least my next trip abroad.
