Calificación de Goodreads
Rae, a la que todos llaman Sunshine, sabía que estaba cometiendo una imprudencia, pero necesitaba aislarse un rato para desconectar, y la cabaña familiar del lago le pareció un buen refugio. Pero entonces los vampiros la encontraron. Y ahora, encadenada y prisionera en una mansión en ruinas, sola salvo por el hambriento vampiro encadenado junto a ella, tendrá que valerse de habilidades que desconocía poseer si es que quiere sobrevivir. Sorprendentemente, su compañero de cautiverio no resultará ser lo que ella esperaba de un vampiro, y pronto descubrirá que no solo ella necesita su ayuda, también él depende de ella para salvar su vida.

Maman was exigeante—there is no English word–and I had the benefit of her training. Others may not be so fortunate. If some other young girl, with two million dollars at stake, finds this of use I shall count myself justified....

I was mesmerized by Fiona McFarlane's lyrical novel The Sun Walks Down: in 1883 in Fairly, South Australia, a 6-yr-old disappears during a dust storm; we hear from the friends & neighbors who search for him. The cover's stunning & the book will blow you away. Pubs 2/14      fuente

Follow the adventures of Bunny and Turtle in this delightful new picture-book that reimagines Aesop's fable, "The Tortoise and the Hare." Through colorful illustrations, children will learn about the importance of friendship, tolerance, and patience. As Bunny rushes, and Turtle plans, they both learn to accept and appreciate their differences. This heartwarming tale is perfect for parents to read aloud to their little ones and make them understand the value of patience.

El cuaderno dorado
A Novel
Doris Lessing - 1999-02-03 (publicado por primera vez en 1962)
Calificación de Goodreads
Reconocida como la obra más emblemática de Doris Lessing, testimonio clave sobre la condición femenina y crónica de una generación, El cuaderno dorado relata la profunda crisis vital de la escritora y militante comunista Anna Wulf. Intentará salvarse con una nueva forma de mirar la realidad, y a tal fin Anna se lanza a escribir varios cuadernos, cada uno dedicado a una parcela de su existencia: el rojo, dedicado a la política; el amarillo, con historias procedentes de la experiencia; y el azul, que intenta ser un diario. Pero al no conseguir que den una imagen completa de su vida, empieza a escribir el cuaderno dorado, en el que ambiciona plasmar todos los cabos sueltos de su historia. Una lúcida novela sobre la condición de ser mujer en un mundo dominado por los hombres.

Experience the scandal and intrigue of Hollywood's Golden Age in this hilarious and captivating tale featuring over sixty original illustrations. Cartoonist Edward Sorel's lifelong obsession with Mary Astor's infamous diary, uncovering her extramarital affairs and dramatic custody battle, is brought to life in his signature style. Sorel also delves into Astor's tumultuous life in the limelight as a child star and her teenage love affair with legendary actor John Barrymore. Mary Astor's Purple Diary is a compassionate and witty character study that transcends Hollywood Babylon to become a masterpiece of storytelling.
Nancy Pearl
Fans of illustrator, cartoonist, & caricaturist Edward Sorel’s work, fans of books about Hollywood’s history, & anyone looking for a light, entertaining & minimally juicy bio that will make you want to watch or rewatch a lot of films from the 40s, this book’s for you      fuente
Lives of the Saints book cover
Lives of the Saints
A Novel (Voices of the South)
Nancy Lemann - 1986-09-01 (publicado por primera vez en 1985)
Calificación de Goodreads
A tale of Violent Love, Breakdowns, Moods, and Felonious Drunkenness that floats from one lush, green, sweltering New Orleans evening to another. This novel follows Louise Brown as she returns home after four years of college in New England and finds herself reimmersed in New Orleans society's "wastrel-youth contingent." At the center of it all is Claude, rumpled, accident prone, and desperate; the only man who can break Louise's heart "into a million pieces on the floor." Lives of the Saints elegiacally and eccentrically inscribes the South's hallmarks of defeat and refuge in a group of people as intense and adrift as one could encounter, marking Nancy Lemann a rising literary star with her debut novel.

@parisreview @krithikavaragur Oh my gosh, I love this novel and have never met anyone who’s read it. Way back in 2003 in Book Lust I called it an “elegiac novel of family dysfunction.”      fuente

"The Palace Papers" delves deep into the inner workings of the British royal family as they navigated the aftermath of Princess Diana's death and faced new 21st century crises.

I don’t believe that some books are guilty pleasures and others are non-guilty ones, but if there ever was a guilty pleasure, this is it. And reader, I loved it      fuente
