Book Haul: verano 2018 y Erasmus.

by - miércoles, diciembre 12, 2018

¡Hola, hola, hola! Después de mucho tiempo por fin vuelvo a las andadas. Y estos meses para mi desgracia han caído muy pocos libros entre mis manos. En verano tenía que ahorrar para poder irme, y aquí en Polonia no puedo comprar libros porque están todos en polaco obviamente. Y lo que he conseguido en estos últimos meses se deben al Black Friday y a mi viaje a Londres. Así que, aquí tenéis mis nuevos libros del verano de 2018 y los que he comprado hasta ahora en el Erasmus.

Como la vez anterior, os dejo el titulo del libro junto a su autor y entre paréntesis como lo he conseguido. Al mismo tiempo os adjunto su sinopsis y si ya he hecho la reseña pues el link a esta. ¡Espero que hayamos coincidido en alguno!.

VERANO 2018:
  • La Ira y el Amanecer, Renee Ahdieh (Comprado).
    • Sinopsis: En una tierra regida por un monstruoso califa, cada nuevo amanecer rompe el corazón de una familia. Día tras día, el rey contrae matrimonio con una joven que al alba es ejecutada. 

      Si falláis una sola vez, os arrebataré vuestros sueños, os arrebataré vuestra ciudad. Y os arrebataré estas vidas multiplicadas por mil.

      Por eso es un misterio cuando una desconocida se presenta voluntaria para casarse con él. Esa misma noche, ella empieza a contarle una historia.

      Yo no estoy aquí para luchar. Estoy para ganar.

      Y por primera vez, la aurora no llega teñida de rojo.

      Os juro que viviré para ver todos los atardeceres posibles. 

      Y que os mataré. Con mis propias manos.
ERASMUS:

  • The Complete Sherlock Holmes. (Viaje a Londres).
  • How to Think like Sherlock Holmes, Maria Konnikova. (Viaje a Londres)
    • Sinopsis: No fictional character is more renowned for his powers of thought and observation than Sherlock Holmes. But is his extraordinary intellect merely a gift of fiction, or can we learn to cultivate these abilities ourselves, to improve our lives at work and at home?

      We can, says psychologist and journalist Maria Konnikova, and in Mastermind she shows us how. Beginning with the "brain attic"--Holmes's metaphor for how we store information and organize knowledge--Konnikova unpacks the mental strategies that lead to clearer thinking and deeper insights. Drawing on twenty-first-century neuroscience and psychology, Mastermind explores Holmes's unique methods of ever-present mindfulness, astute observation, and logical deduction. 

      In doing so, it shows how each of us, with some self-awareness and a little practice, can employ these same methods to sharpen our perceptions, solve difficult problems, and enhance our creative powers. For Holmes aficionados and casual readers alike, Konnikova reveals how the world's most keen-eyed detective can serve as an unparalleled guide to upgrading the mind. 
  • Tales from the Shadowhunter Market, Cassandra Clare. (Black Friday)
    • Sinopsis: Simon Lewis has been a human and a vampire, and now he is becoming a Shadowhunter. But the events of City of Heavenly Fireleft him stripped of his memories, and Simon isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows he was friends with Clary, and that he convinced the total goddess Isabelle Lightwood to go out with him…but he doesn’t know how. And when Clary and Isabelle look at him, expecting him to be a man he doesn’t remember…Simon can’t take it.

      So when the Shadowhunter Academy reopens, Simon throws himself into this new world of demon-hunting, determined to find himself again. His new self. Whomever this new Simon might be.

      But the Academy is a Shadowhunter institution, which means it has some problems. Like the fact that non-Shadowhunter students have to live in the basement. And that differences—like being a former vampire—are greatly looked down upon. At least Simon is trained in weaponry—even if it’s only from hours of playing D&D.

      Join Simon on his journey to become a Shadowhunter, and learn about the Academy’s illustrious history along the way, through guest lecturers such as Jace Herondale, Tessa Gray, and Magnus Bane. These ten short stories give an epilogue to the Mortal Instruments series and provide glimpses of what’s in store in the Dark Artifices.
  • A Court of Frost and Starlight, Sarah J. Maas. (Black Friday).
    • Sinopsis: Hope warms the coldest night.

      Feyre, Rhys, and their close-knit circle of friends are still busy rebuilding the Night Court and the vastly-changed world beyond. But Winter Solstice is finally near, and with it, a hard-earned reprieve. 

      Yet even the festive atmosphere can't keep the shadows of the past from looming. As Feyre navigates her first Winter Solstice as High Lady, she finds that those dearest to her have more wounds than she anticipated--scars that will have far-reaching impact on the future of their Court.
  • Unicornios de Cenoria que Cabalgas os sábados, Ronseltz. (Comprado). 
    • Sinopsis: -.
