Novedades: Enero 2022

¡Hola! Hoy es el turno de las novedades literarias del mes de enero, que en total son cinco.

42952728Título: When You Get the Chance
Autora: Emma Lord
Fecha de publicación: 4 de Enero de 2021
Sinopsis: Nothing will get in the way of Millie Price’s dream to become a Broadway star. Not her lovable but super-introverted dad, who after raising Millie alone, doesn’t want to watch her leave home to pursue her dream. Not her pesky and ongoing drama club rival, Oliver, who is the very definition of Simmering Romantic Tension. And not the “Millie Moods,” the feelings of intense emotion that threaten to overwhelm, always at maddeningly inconvenient times. Millie needs an ally. And when a left-open browser brings Millie to her dad’s embarrassingly moody LiveJournal from 2003, Millie knows just what to do. She’s going to find her mom.

There’s Steph, a still-aspiring stage actress and receptionist at a talent agency. There’s Farrah, ethereal dance teacher who clearly doesn’t have the two left feet Millie has. And Beth, the chipper and sweet stage enthusiast with an equally exuberant fifteen-year-old daughter (A possible sister?! This is getting out of hand). But how can you find a new part of your life and expect it to fit into your old one, without leaving any marks? And why is it that when you go looking for the past, it somehow keeps bringing you back to what you’ve had all along?

42952728Título: Weather Girl
Autora: Rachel Lynn Solomon
Fecha de publicación: 11 de Enero de 2021
Sinopsis: Ari Abrams has always been fascinated by the weather, and she loves almost everything about her job as a TV meteorologist. Her boss, legendary Seattle weatherwoman Torrance Hale, is too distracted by her tempestuous relationship with her ex-husband, the station’s news director, to give Ari the mentorship she wants. Ari, who runs on sunshine and optimism, is at her wits’ end. The only person who seems to understand how she feels is sweet but reserved sports reporter Russell Barringer.

In the aftermath of a disastrous holiday party, Ari and Russell decide to team up to solve their bosses’ relationship issues. Between secret gifts and double dates, they start nudging their bosses back together. But their well-meaning meddling backfires when the real chemistry builds between Ari and Russell.

Working closely with Russell means allowing him to get to know parts of herself that Ari keeps hidden from everyone. Will he be able to embrace her dark clouds as well as her clear skies?

A TV meteorologist and a sports reporter scheme to reunite their divorced bosses with unforecasted results in this charming romantic comedy from the author of The Ex Talk.

42952728Título: The Roughest Draft
Autora: Emily Wibberley y Austin Siegemund-Broka
Fecha de publicación: 25 de Enero de 2021
Sinopsis: They were cowriting literary darlings until they hit a plot hole that turned their lives upside down.

Three years ago, Katrina Freeling and Nathan Van Huysen were the brightest literary stars on the horizon, their cowritten books topping bestseller lists. But on the heels of their greatest success, they ended their partnership on bad terms, for reasons neither would divulge to the public. They haven't spoken since, and never planned to, except they have one final book due on contract.

Facing crossroads in their personal and professional lives, they're forced to reunite. The last thing they ever thought they'd do again is hole up in the tiny Florida town where they wrote their previous book, trying to finish a new manuscript quickly and painlessly. Working through the reasons they've hated each other for the past three years isn't easy, especially not while writing a romantic novel.

While passion and prose push them closer together in the Florida heat, Katrina and Nathan will learn that relationships, like writing, sometimes take a few rough drafts before they get it right.

42952728Título: Running Wild (Wild #3)
Autora: K.A. Tucker
Fecha de publicación: 25 de Enero de 2021
Sinopsis: From the internationally bestselling author of The Simple Wild comes the story of a woman at a crossroads in her life, struggling between the safe route and the one that will only lead to more heartbreak.

Veterinarian Marie Lehr knows unrequited love all too well after pining for her best friend, only to watch him marry another woman. It’s a mistake she will never make again, especially not when she can practically hear the clock ticking on her childbearing years.

The trouble is, she can’t seem to find anyone who appeals to her even a fraction as much as that burly bush pilot did. Competitive musher Tyler Brady certainly doesn’t, especially not after the heated altercation with the handsome but arrogant, spiteful man.

Or so she thinks.

While volunteering at the Iditarod Sled Dog Race, Marie discovers that first impressions may have been false, and her attraction to Tyler is very real. But his heart belongs to someone else, leaving him with nothing to offer but friendship. Marie’s been down this road before and knows how that ends. Yet, no matter how hard she works to keep from falling for Tyler, it seems she’s doomed to follow her own trail once again.

42952728Título: Loveboat Reunion (Loveboat, Taipei #2)
Autora: Abigail Hing Wen
Fecha de publicación: 25 de Enero de 2021
Sinopsis: This companion novel to Abigail Hing Wen’s New York Times bestselling debut, Loveboat, Taipei, follows two fan favorite characters—Sophie and Xavier—as they reconnect and write their own futures on a wild, unexpected Loveboat reunion.

Sophie Ha and Xavier Yeh have what some would call a tumultuous past.

It’s a classic tale of girl-meets-boy, boy-meets-other-girl, heart-gets-broken, revenge-is-plotted, everything-blows-up. Spectacularly.

At least they’re friends now. They’ve left the drama behind them back in Taipei—at their summer program, Loveboat—forever.

Now fall is here, and it’s time to focus on what really matters. Sophie is determined to be the best student Dartmouth’s ever had. Forget finding the right guy to make her dreams come true—Sophie is going to make her future happen for herself. Xavier, on the other hand, just wants to stay under his overbearing father’s radar, collect his trust fund when he turns eighteen, and concentrate on what makes him happy, for the first time ever.

But the world doesn’t seem to want Sophie and Xavier to succeed. Sophie’s college professor thinks her first major project is “too feminine.” Xavier’s father gives him an ultimatum: finish high school or be cut off from his inheritance.

Then Sophie and Xavier find themselves on a wild, nonstop Loveboat reunion, each trying to resist the chemistry that originally led to them to combust. As they grow closer, they hatch a plan to take control of their own futures. Step one? Break all the rules.

Expansive and romantic, glamorous and tender, Loveboat Reunion takes readers back to Taipei through the eyes of Sophie and Xavier, on an unforgettable journey of glittering revelry and self-discovery that’s perfect for fans of Jenny Han and Mary H. K. Choi.

Novedades: Diciembre 2021

¡Hola a todo el mundo! La entrada de hoy va dedicada a las novedades literarias del mes de diciembre, el último mes del año y, por tanto, también las últimas novedades. Al igual que en noviembre, esta vez solo hay dos novedades que me llaman la atención y ambas son continuaciones de sagas.

42952728Título: The Righteous (The Beautiful #3)
Autora: Renée Ahdieh
Fecha de publicación: 7 de Diciembre de 2021
Sinopsis: The third book in the instant New York Times bestselling series that began with The Beautiful.

Pippa Montrose is tired of losing everything she loves. When her best friend Celine disappears under mysterious circumstances, Pippa resolves to find her, even if the journey takes her into the dangerous world of the fae, where she might find more than she bargained for in the charismatic Arjun Desai.

Renée is back with her rich, atmospheric fantasy world that will continue to enthrall readers, new romance and mystery, and lush, pacey writing.

42952728Título: Beautiful Nightmares (Fortuna Sworn #4)
Autora: K.J. Sutton
Fecha de publicación: 7 de Diciembre de 2021
Sinopsis: In the space of a single day, everything Fortuna thought she knew was exposed as lies and illusion. Alliances have shifted and roles are forever changed.

And she now finds herself a prisoner in the Seelie Court.

It is here that Fortuna learns the board for this game is even bigger than she believed. New players emerge from the shadows and the stakes are higher than ever before. There’s no time for pain or healing—just survival.

At least, that’s what Fortuna thinks. Then the game leads her to an opponent who doesn't fight with magic or swords. An opponent that not even she can beat.

It turns out she didn’t know the meaning of fear... until now.

TRIGGER WARNING: This novel contains scenes or themes of torture, slavery, and PTSD.

Wrap Up: Octubre 2021

¡Buenas tardes a todos! La entrada del día de hoy trata sobre todos los libros que leí en el mes de octubre. A diferencia de los tres meses anteriores, este mes sí he leído una buena cantidad de libros, y es que leer doce libros en este mes cuando en septiembre no leí nada ¡alegra a cualquiera! Como creo que comenté en una entrada anterior, me mudé en septiembre, así que puede ser que ya esté todo más relajado y me haya acostumbrado a mi "nueva vida" y, por eso, ya estoy volviendo a un ritmo de lectura más normal.

Mi favorito, sin duda alguna, fue The Cruel Prince, la primera entrega de la saga The Folk of the Air de Holly Black que me muero por continuar. También leí bastantes libros a través de Kindle Unlimited, la aplicación de Amazon, y el libro que menos me gustó fue uno de ellos, Christmas Wish de Danielle Jamie. Dicho esto, os dejo con todos los libros que leí en octubre.

Venus and Adonis de William Shakespeare
My Dirty Duke de Joanna Shupe: 3/5
Christmas Wish de Danielle Jamie: 2/5

The Trouble with Love de Claire Contreras: 3/5

Diseñado por María Mariano.
