Não acredito!! Este livro está finalmente à venda em Portugal! Foi o primeiro, ou um dos primeiros livros que li em inglês, e adorei! É muito fofinho e é passado em França, e dá uma vontade enorme de visitar de tão detalhado que a autora caracteriza os locais! Apenas não gosto da capa portuguesa, e confesso que também não gosto muito do preço. Está a 13.41€, mas vale a pena ler! É um dos meus preferidos, e terei de o ler novamente, porque como disse mais acima foi um dos primeiros, e na altura ainda não sabia muito bem inglês para ler um livro inteiro e entender tudo!
Eis a capa original, muito mais bonita e o sumário.
Anna Oliphant tem grandes planos para o seu último ano em Atlanta: sair com a melhor amiga, Bridgette, e namoriscar com um colega no cinema onde trabalha. Por conseguinte, não fica muito contente quando o pai a envia para um colégio interno em Paris. As coisas começam a melhorar quando ela conhece Étienne St. Clair, um rapaz deslumbrante – que tem namorada. Ele e Anna tornam-se grandes amigos e as coisas ficam infinitamente mais complicadas. Irá Anna conseguir um beijo francês? Ou algumas coisas não estão destinadas a acontecer?
Here I am again…. Now I will be posting about the tv shows I may watch of NBC, CBS and ABC. Last year I also did a post like this and in the end I am not watching most of what I said I would. Trailers and previews aren’t what it really is in the end…
The Crazy Ones
A father/daughter workplace comedy set in the world of advertising.
It has Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar and I love both! The preview looks awesome & funny!
Under the Dome
Looks fantastic! And it has Britt Robertson, one of my favorite actresses (since Life Unexpected). This one is based on a Stephen King book and reminds me of Haven, which is also based on a book by King.
The world’s most wanted criminal suddenly turns himself in and offers to give up anyone he’s ever worked with. The catch: He’ll only work with a new FBI agent, one with whom he has no known connection.
This is not my style, but it looks so good! I am going to watch it. Can’t wait!!
A beautiful but unhappily married female photographer begins a torrid affair with a lawyer for a powerful family. When he turns out to be defending a murder suspect who is being prosecuted by her husband, the relationship and the case begin a spiraling series of betrayals with cataclysmic results for everyone involved.
I am not sure if I’ll keep on watching it… it would be better as a movie rather than a tv show. And I have this same opinion for other shows…
The series asks the provocative question, “What happens when the people you have mourned and buried suddenly appear on your doorstep as if not a day’s gone by? The lives of the people of Arcadia are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return.”
Aww, it’s so beautiful! =]
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
The adventures of the agents of a covert, quasi-military peace-keeping organization, S.H.I.E.L.D. (or the Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division), which was featured in last summer’s Avengers movie.
I’ve shared the trailer already (here), and can’t wait for this one.
There are some good tv shows coming soon to american television. It happens every year. The tv channels order lots of pilots and then they have to choose those more appealing to the society. This time they didn’t pick up some shows I was looking forward to like Delirium and The Selection, both based on best selling author books. I didn’t like most of the actors they cast for Delirium, so in a way, I am glad they didn’t pick that one, but after reading the pilot script, it seemed pretty good. Oh well. As for The Selection, the cast was mostly unknown, so I’d had to wait and see, but again, they didn’t pick it up, so I won’t ever be able to watch it…
Here are some clips from series I might be checking out this fall or whenever they schedule them to air on tv. These are from the CW.
Passion and politics threaten the peace and an epic romance ignites between a human girl and an alien boy when he and eight others of his kind (The Orion 9) are integrated into a suburban high school ten years after they and hundreds of others landed on Earth and were immediately consigned to an internment camp where they’ve been imprisoned ever since.
This one remainded me a lot of a book series I love, but from what I could see from this clip, it isn’t how I imagined. Still, it seems like a good show. I will, at least, check out the pilot.
Based on upcoming Alloy books written by Kass Morgan, the project is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization. A spaceship housing the lone human survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet.
Hmmm, didn’t see much from this preview. But I will watch the pilot.
The previously unknown and untold story of Mary Queen of Scots rise to power when she arrives in France as a 15-year-old, betrothed to Prince Francis, and with her three best friends as ladies-in-waiting. The secret history of survival at French Court amidst fierce foes, dark forces, and a world of sexual intrigue.
Reminds me of The Selection a bit. The main actor is adorable! And everyone knows I love stories with princes and princesses.
The Tomorrow People
Adapted from the 1970s UK series, it follows several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, all possessing special powers including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically. Together they work to defeat the forces of evil.
Woooo, another show about people with super powers! It seems promising, but I don’t know if I am going to watch it! The main actor is Stephen Amell’s (Arrow) cousin!
The only other show I have no idea if I am going to watch is The Originals. I haven’t watched Vampire Diaries in forever…
Some of the information here was taken from tvline.com! =]
This book shows us exactly what you see in the title “This is What Happy Looks Like”. It’s such a light and lovely read. I read it in 3 hours, and loved it! It’s about a movie star who writes the wrong email address, so it turns out he sent the email about his pig to a girl in the middle of nowhere, Maine (that’s how it’s described in the books), but he doesn’t tell her who he is. They keep talking via emails, until the end he goes to her town to film his new movie.
It’s a very cute book, loved the story, the characters, the written, everything. There were some parts I wasn’t really expecting would happen, and how Jennifer developed the plot, simply amazing!!
Check out the summary below!
When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O’Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.
Then Graham finds out that Ellie’s Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media’s spotlight at all costs?
The Sims 3 team is launching video games in such a short time in between that they don’t even look that good. And this one isn’t necessary, plus the dragon looks very weird to me. They could have done better… But I am super excited for the Island expansion pack!
