În Brașov a plouat cam toată luna iunie dar asta nu a însemnat că nu ne-am și topit de cald, ceea ce ne-a făcut să visăm că nu suntem la muncă sau în drum spre casă și alte treburi, ci pe marginea unei piscine, citind câteva lecturi văratice. V-am mai povestit că ne-a luat dorul de ducă și de vacanță, deci o astfel de listă de lecturi văratice era necesară și ne va prinde bine tuturor la un moment dat.
Lecturi văratice pentru concedii, vacanțe și alte zile libere
O lectură numai bună pentru zilele de vară. Te avertizăm că te va face să visezi la Italia sau să-ți fie dor de ea și de o înghețată delicioasă și rece.
During a restless summer on the Italian Riviera, a powerful romance blooms between seventeen-year-old Elio and his father’s house guest, Oliver. Unrelenting currents of obsession and fear, fascination and desire threaten to overwhelm the lovers who at first feign indifference to the charge between them. What grows from the depths of their souls is a romance of scarcely six weeks’ duration, and an experience that marks them for a lifetime.
Nu știu de voi, dar mie mi se pare că un thriller sau un murder mystery merge destul de bine într-o zi în care stai sub soare și te relaxezi. Ruth Ware este o alegere potrivită în acest caz, mai ales dacă deja ești fan Agatha Christie. (după ce vei citi The Woman in Cabin 10, vei înțelege de ce am menționat-o pe the master of murder mysteries)
This was meant to be the perfect trip. The Northern Lights. A luxury press launch on a boutique cruise ship. A chance for travel journalist Lo Blackwood to recover from a traumatic break-in that has left her on the verge of collapse, and to work out what she wants from her relationship. Except things don’t go as planned. Woken in the night by screams, Lo rushes to her window to see a body thrown overboard from the next door cabin. But the records show that no-one ever checked into that cabin, and no passengers are missing from the boat.

The only thing he must not do is fall in love.
Lauren Groff brings her electric storytelling and intelligence to a world in which storms, snakes and sinkholes lurk at the edge of everyday life, but the greater threats and mysteries are of a human, emotional and psychological nature. Among those navigating it all are a resourceful pair of abandoned sisters; a lonely boy, grown up; a restless, childless couple; a searching, homeless woman; and an unforgettable, recurring character a steely and conflicted wife and mother. The stories in this collection span characters, towns, decades, even centuries, but Florida – its landscape, climate, history, and state of mind – becomes its gravitational centre: an energy, a mood, as much as a place of residence.
5. Feel Free
In Feel Free, pop culture, high culture, social change and political debate all get the Zadie Smith treatment, dissected with razor-sharp intellect, set brilliantly against the context of the utterly contemporary, and considered with a deep humanity and compassion. This electrifying new collection showcases its author as a true literary powerhouse, demonstrating once again her credentials as an essential voice of her generation.
