Olá outra vez! c:
Hoje venho trazer-vos mais uma wishlist, desta vez não de roupa ou sapatos, mas sim de livros.
Nunca fui pessoa de ler, achava demasiado trabalhoso e nunca tinha encontrado um livro que me fizesse querer lê-lo, nenhum me cativava nem prendia. Até que li o The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, que me cativou completamente e que me fez querer ler livros. Depois de alguns livros lidos cheguei à conclusão que não suporto (vá, não me cativam) livros na versão portuguesa. Percebi que gosto mais de lê-los na versão original e ver mesmo o que eles queriam dizer. O único livro que gostei sendo em português foi O Fim da Inocência 2. Não me considero uma pessoa que adora ler e que lê em todas as circunstâncias como no autocarro e assim (até porque não consigo, distraio-me facilmente) mas tenho que admitir que há um bichinho da leitura a crescer dentro de mim ahah :3
1. Paper Towns de John Green
After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues — and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew.
2. An Abundance Of Katherines de John Green
Katherine V thought boys were gross
Katherine X just wanted to be friends
Katherine XVIII dumped him in an e-mail
K-19 broke his heart
When it comes to relationships, Colin Singleton's type happens to be girls named Katherine. And when it comes to girls named Katherine, Colin is always getting dumped. Nineteen times, to be exact.
3. Will Grayon, Will Grayson de John Green
One cold night, in a most unlikely corner of Chicago, two teens—both named Will Grayson—are about to cross paths. As their worlds collide and intertwine, the Will Graysons find their lives going in new and unexpected directions, building toward romantic turns-of-heart and the epic production of history’s most fabulous high school musical.
4. Eleanor & Park de Rainbow Rowell
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor... Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough...Eleanor.
Park... He knows she'll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There's a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises...Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.
5. It's Kind Of A Funny Story de Ned Vizzini
A humorous account of a New York City teenager's battle with depression and his time spent in a psychiatric hospital...
The book was inspired by Vizzini's own brief hospitalization for depression in November 2004.
(Vi o filme e gostei mas faltava-lhe qualquer coisa por isso quero ver se leio o livro.)
6. Darkness So Profound de Ned Vizzini
Darkness has overcome me. It's got me by the throat and pulls me under, deep, deep, deep into oblivion. I struggle, I listen to music, I walk around the block, I write happy stories about presidents and princesses. I try to get into a happy thinking rhythm. But I'm exhausted and get swallowed by darkness again. Must I always be sad? Always?
7. Love Letters To The Dead de Ava Dellaira
It begins as an assignment for English class: Write a letter to a dead person. Laurel chooses Kurt Cobain because her sister, May, loved him. And he died young, just like May did. Soon, Laurel has a notebook full of letters to people like Janis Joplin, Amy Winehouse, Amelia Earhart, Heath Ledger, and more; though she never gives a single one of them to her teacher.
She writes about starting high school, navigating new friendships, falling in love for the first time, learning to live with her splintering family. And, finally, about the abuse she suffered while May was supposed to be looking out for her. Only then, once Laurel has written down the truth about what happened to herself, can she truly begin to accept what happened to May. And only when Laurel has begun to see her sister as the person she was; lovely and amazing and deeply flawed; can she begin to discover her own path.
8. 13 Reasons Why de Jay Asher
Clay Jensen returns home from school to find a mysterious box with his name on it lying on his porch. Inside he discovers thirteen cassette tapes recorded by Hannah Baker, his classmate and crush who committed suicide two weeks earlier.
On tape, Hannah explains that there are thirteen reasons why she decided to end her life. Clay is one of them. If he listens, he'll find out how he made the list.
Through Hannah and Clay's dual narratives, debut author Jay Asher weaves an intricate and heartrending story of confusion and desperation that will deeply affect teen readers.
9. Zac and Mia de A.J. Betts
You need courage to be in hospital; different courage to be back in the real world. In one of these worlds Zac needs Mia. And in the other Mia needs Zac. Or maybe they both need each other, always.
10. O Fim da Inocência de Francisco Salgueiro
Aos olhos do mundo, Inês é a menina perfeita. Frequenta um dos melhores colégios nos arredores de Lisboa e relaciona-se com filhos de embaixadores e presidentes de grandes empresas. Por detrás das aparências, a realidade é outra, e bem distinta. Inês e os seus amigos são consumidores regulares de drogas, participam em arriscados jogos sexuais e utilizam desregradamente a internet, transformando as suas vidas numa espiral marcada pelo descontrolo físico e emocional.
Francisco Salgueiro dá voz à história real e chocante de uma adolescente portuguesa, contada na primeira pessoa. Um aviso para os pais estarem mais atentos ao que se passa nas suas casas.
