Know them all #2

Tipica bambina petulante :DD

Rubrica a cadenza settimanale in cui presenterò un autore che amo/ho scoperto e farò il punto della situazione su "quanta" bibliografia" ho già letto e l'inizio della nostra relazione :3

Lo spunto per la rubrica è preso sul blog di Cami, Bibliomania e da una delle sue Top ten letterarie!

Rieccomi finalmente con questa altra rubrica, partita con grande entusiasmo più di un mese fa.. E abbandonata al suo destino dopo il primo incontro xD
Bu per me, decisamente!
In realtà la trovo carina, ho mille autori che vorrei presentare e che vorrei conoscere e farvi conoscere.. Solo che - appena trovavo un buon candidato - c'era la folgorazione: "Diamine, ma io di questo autore ho praticamente letto tutto, che senso ha inserirlo nella rubrica Know them all?".
E quindi niente, da brava "non.assumiamoci-le-nostre-responsabilità-fino-a-che-non-sia-strettamente-necessario" ho rimandato sine die :D (aggiungiamoci anche il fatto che alcuni autori a cui ho pensato hanno una bibliografia praticamente infinita.. XD)

Ospite di questa puntata sarà dunque un'autrice di cui ho letto un solo libro che mi è super piaciuto e che penso non sia proprio al top della fama :D
Rullo di tamburi e... Benvenuta Amanda Ashby!!!!

Fair bad day

While most students at Burtonwood Academy get to kill demons and goblins, fifteen-year-old Emma gets to rid the world of little annoying fairies with glittery wings and a hipster fashion sense. She was destined to be a dragon slayer, but cute and charming Curtis stole her spot. Then she sees a giant killer fairyÑand it's invisible to everyone but her! If Emma has any chance of stopping this evil fairy, she's going to need help. Unfortunately, the only person who can help is Curtis. And now, not only has he stolen her dragon-slayer spot, but maybe her heart as well! Why does she think it's going to be a fairy bad day?

Zombie queen of Newbury High (Letto e consigliato!!)

Quiet, unpopular, non-cheerleading Mia is blissfully happy. She is dating super hot football god Rob, and he actually likes her and asked her to prom! Enter Samantha?cheerleading goddess and miss popularity? who starts making a move for Rob. With prom in a few days, Mia needs to act fast. So she turns to her best friend, Candice, and decides to do a love spell on Rob. Unfortunately, she ends up inflicting a zombie virus onto her whole class, making herself their leader! At first she is flattered that everyone is treating her like a queen. But then zombie hunter hottie Chase explains they are actually fattening her up, because in a few days, Mia will be the first course in their new diet. She?s sure she and Chase can figure something out, but she suggests that no one wear white to prom, because things could get very messy.

You had me at halo

Holly Evans has just seen her own body laid to rest. Now she would like to move onto the afterlife. But apparently she has some mortal baggage to unload first, starting with the matter of how she died. Her heavenly shrink isn't buying that she didn't kill herself- and says she must return to earth to straighten things out. The thing is, she needs to borrow the body of computer geek Vince Murphy to do it. Oh, and although Vince was supposed to have vacated the premises, he apparently never got the memo. Now, Holly has forty-eight hours to resolve her issues while sharing arms, legs, and...other things...with a guy she barely noticed while she was alive. But the real surprise is what life has to offer when you have only two days to live it.


An ancient myth + a mean girl + a reluctant warrior = a lively take on good vs. evil The Black Rose--a powerful ancient force--has been let loose and has taken up residence in Celeste Gibson, popular girl at Cassidy Carter-Lewis' high school. Thomas Delacroix is the spirit of a fourteenth-century knight who is devoted to protecting the Black Rose, but he needs a contemporary living being to take on the challenge. That's where Cassidy comes in. She's a quirky high school junior who just wants to dress in her vintage clothes, hang out with her best friend, and take care of her father, who is recovering from surgery. She's the last person who would ever volunteer for such a task, but no one actually asked her. Now, like it or not, she finds herself training before dawn and battling demons at parties, the mall, and even at school. But hey, no one ever said high school was going to be easy. . .

Wishful thinking - Sophie's mixed-up #1

After Sophie accidentally gets herself turned into a djinn, she starts to think that it might not be so bad after all. (Of course, that's after she gets the whole orange skin problem sorted out.) Who wouldn't enjoy having the power to grant wishes But when Sophie develops RWD (Random Wish Disorder) and can't STOP granting wishes, things get more than a little mixed-up

Under a spell - Sophie's mixed-up #2

As Sophie gets used to her magic, her relationship with the adorable Jonathan Tait is blossoming. There's only one problem: Jonathan's twin sister, Melissa. She's a total mean girl who seems intent on making Sophie's life miserable. On top of that, Melissa somehow seems to sense that Sophie has powers--and manages to bind Sophie to her in a totally self-serving way. Can Sophie figure out a way out of this--without ruining her chances with Jonathan?

Out of sight  - Sophie's mixed-up #2

The final book in the lively, fun series for tween girls--just right for Disney Channel fans! With her powers under control and things with Jonathan on track, Sophie can now focus on learning the whole truth about her dad (not to mention trying to figure out how she can save him and bring him back to their family). Fortunately, she's got Malik, her djinn-guide, to help her as she navigates carpet-flying, learns how to make herself invisible, and braces herself for what promises to be a very exciting adventure. But if it brings her dad back, it will all be worth it!
