Nuovi acquisti di luglio...I can't help myself!

Okay, lo ammetto rientro a pieno titolo nella schiera delle lettrici compulsive, che più libri hanno più ne vorrebbero avere! Sono proprio una di quelle che gli americani chiamano romance junkie (drogata da romance) e tutt'altro che pentita! La mia TBR pile sarebbe davvero altissima se avessi voglia di mettere davvero uno sull'altro tutti i romanzi che ancora ho da leggere, ma questo non mi ferma certo da desiderarne altri, molti altri...una vera malattia da romance!

Così anche questo mese, giusto per non smentirmi, non ho potuto fare a meno di acquistare oltre ai romanzi che già avevo messo nella mia lista dei libri da leggere quest'estate (ma non ancora usciti), anche altri, che quando ho fatto la lista ancora non avevo addocchiato...

Chi è come me conosce bene la bella sensazione che si prova all'apertura di un pacco di nuovi libri, una strana emozione quando ce li troviamo lì tutti davanti, colorati, belli da guardare e da toccare, persino da annusare! (ho molti ebooks ma non c'è niente al mondo come il libro di carta...
it's the real thing!) e che voglia di cominciare a leggerli tutti insieme!

Eccoli qui i miei nuovi libretti...

...quelli che avevo già in previsione di leggere...

A LADY'S SECRET di Jo Beverley ( storico)

When Robin Fitzvitry, the fun-loving Earl of Huntersdown, encounters a cursing nun in a French inn, he can't resist the mystery. He offers to help Sister Immaculata reach England, expecting amusement on the tedious journey home from Versailles.

She must find the only person who might protect her-her true father, an English lord who does not know she exists. The gorgeous earl Robin Fitzvitry will be a dangerous ally, but she's glimpsed her pursuers and must race to the coast. She will resist him, use him, and eventually escape him with her virtue and secrets intact-she hopes.

MOVING TARGET di Cheyenne McCray (romantic suspense)

Ani King left her entire life behind when the Russian mafia brutally murdered her family. The Witness Security Program has kept her safe for two years, but with one simple phone call her cover is destroyed—and there is only one man left who can save her.

And now, just days before the trial where she’s slated to give a damning testimony, the criminals who want her dead are on her trail. To keep Ani safe, Daniel has to keep her close—and her enemies closer. Because soon there’s nowhere for Ani to hide…but in his arms.

TALL TALES AND WEDDING VEIL di Jane Graves (contemporaneo)

Quickly hitched and happily ditched, Tony can't wait to get back to his playboy ways. But when Heather's family is thrilled that their no-nonsense daughter is finally in love, he proposes a plan: stay married for a month to repay his good luck charm, even though she sterilizes his toothbrush and forbids anything between the sheets. But Heather is more than he bargained for--a sharp-witted, passionate woman who just might turn his near miss into wedded bliss !

He vows to his best friend that if only someone would set before him the plainest, dullest, most ordinary female, he would marry her without delay.He is not really serious, of course, but the very next day a woman who resembles the one he described to an uncanny degree appears in the visitors' salon of his home, claiming a distant kinship and begging for a reference so that she can seek employment. Suddenly Miles becomes very serious indeed and offers her something quite different from what she expects.The only problem is that Abigail Gardiner is not at all the woman Miles judges her to be during that first encounter.

  1. Sono un pò indietro sulla tabella di marcia, ho appena finito Shadows of the night di Lydia Joyce. Bello, ma si perde nel finale che praticamente manca. Un vero peccato.

  2. Ciao Weirde, ero giusto curiosa di sapere com'era questo romanzo. Se scriverai la recensione sono proprio curiosa di leggerla...però la copertina è bella, come del resto tutte quelle dei romanzi precedenti. E' stata fortunata, non sembra ma per un'autrice emergente avere un romanzo con una coverart che cattura l'attenzione è importantissimo!


  3. Almeno tu sei drogata solo di Romance io lo sono anche di gialli e thriller per cui immagina la mia pila di libri quanto sarà alta! :P
