KNJIGOLJUBKA PIHA DRUGO SVEČKO

Dve leti je minilo odkar sem odprla blog Knjigoljubka in napisala svojo prvo objavo. Prvo leto je bilo zame kar uspešno, ravno tako drugo. Poleg tega, da mi je blog prinesel nova spoznanja bralcev in pisateljev, sem dobila tudi nove knjige, nova znanja in nove ideje. In za vse to ste zahvalni vi, moji bralci. V današnji objavi se vam zahvaljujem za vse vaše obiske na mojem blogu, za vse vaše komentarje, sporočila, emaile... Če imate še kakšno idejo, kako bi blog naredila še boljši, ali o čem bi radi, da pišem, mi to sporočite v komentarju pod objavo, ali pa mi sporočite na email knjigoljubkamaja@gmail.com.



Drugo leto je bilo zame še bolj izjemno kot prvo. Začela sem s promocijami tujih pisateljic in tako spoznala veliko novih pisateljic. Nekatere so mi v zahvalo tudi podarile svoje knjige. Od kar sem začela s Knjigoljubko, so se tudi moje knjižne poličke povečale in se še vedno polnijo.
V drugem letu sem tako z vami delila kar nekaj novih naslovnic, novih izidov knjig in celo odlomkov. Lani septembra sem vam razkrila kaj se skriva v Willow Winters Mystery Box, nad katero ste bile zelo navdušene. Velik odziv na to objavo sem dobila tudi na Instagramu. Decembra pa sem prvič organizirala Skrivnostnega Božička in bila zelo presenečena nad vašim odzivom. Res hvala vsem, ki ste sodelovale. Posebno so me presenetili vaši odzivi po obdarovanju. Letos bi ga zelo rada ponovila, vendar mi zaradi osebnih stvari ne bo zneslo. Mogoče pa kaj drugega organiziram spomladi. V drugem letu bloga pa sem vam prestavila The Book Fairies in Planer Ustvarjam sanjsko leto. Tako sem spoznala še dve super ustvarjalki Nastjo in Anejo, katerima želim uspešno na njuni nadaljnji poti.
Poleg bloga sem bila aktivna tudi na svojih družbenih omrežjih. Zadnje čase bolj poredko, vendar sem se trudila po svojih močeh. Prvič se mi je zgodilo, da sem začela brati več knjig naenkrat, kar mi sploh ni po godu. Zato bom počasi opustila to zadevo. 



Naj z vami delim še malo statistike. Trenutno mi na Facebooku sledi 683 ljudi na Instagramu pa 1385. Najbolj brana knjižna recenzija je še vedno Princeskin dnevnik. Zgleda, da imate radi zabavne mladinske knjige. 


Najbolj branih 5 objav na Knjigoljubki:


Za konec pa vam še razkrijem malo o sebi. Letošnje leto je bilo zame posebno leto in mi bo za vedno ostalo v spominu. Veliko se mi je dogajalo v privatnem življenju. Kar je tudi razlog, da določeno obdobje nisem bila aktivna na blogu in spletnih omrežjih. Marsikatera sledilka me je to vprašala in vedno sem odgovorila, da bom objavila, ko bo pravi čas. Najprej sem dobila novo zaposlitev, menjala službo, napredovala in nato še izvedela, da sem noseča. Sem ravno v zadnjem trimesečju in zato letos ne bo Skrivnostnega Božička. Pripravite se, da si bom konec leta vzela eno ali dvomesečno pavzo, da si opomorem od poroda. Bomo pa naslednje leto skupaj brali tudi pravljice.😍

Blog mi vzame ogromno časa. Za vsako objavo se potrudim in to mi vzame kar nekaj ur. Letos pa sem se še malo bolj posvetila svojemu življenju in upam, da me podpirate. Bo pa Knjigoljubka ostala aktivna še naprej. Prebrala sem kar nekaj knjig, ki bi jih rada delila z vami, med njimi tudi nekaj ARCjev. Predstavila vam bom še eno slovensko ustvarjalko, ki je napisala oz. ustvarila izjemno knjigo. Že v septembru pa prihajata tudi Poletni nakup knjig in Poletna izmenjava knjig #SummerBookSwap. Z vami bom delila tudi vtise o knjižnem klubu v katerem sem sodelovala, mogoče celo organiziram kaj podobnega. Ostale ideje pa naj še ostanejo skrite v moji glavi.

Če mi še ne sledite na družbenih omrežjih, me lahko od danes naprej (klik na ikono). 


    



@maich na Litsy





Ker pa praznujem, imam za vas presenečenje. Nekomu izmed vas podarim skrivnostni paket. Paket vsebuje knjigo v slovenskem jeziku (gre za sodobni roman / chick lit) in še nekaj presenečenj. 

Sodelujete lahko tudi bralci iz drugih držav, če znate slovensko.
Za nagradno igro sem odgovorna samo jaz.

Za sodelovanje v nagradni igri vas prosim, da izpolnite spodnji obrazec, ki mi bo pomagal izboljšati blog. Časa imate do 14. septembra. Nagrajenec/ka bo obveščen/a po elektronski pošti.



Hvala vsem, ker me berete in spremljate!
Lep pozdrav, Knjigoljubka Maja

Author (Avtor): L.J. Shen
Genre (Kategorija): contemporary romance (sodobna romantika)
Publishing date (Datum izida): September 7th, 2018 (7. september 2018)


SYNOPSIS (OPIS)


Célian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.
Notorious playboy.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.

I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Brooklyn girl.
Infamously quirky.
Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.


Célian Laurent.
Kraljevič iz Manhattna.
Razvpit playboy.
Naslednik medijskega imperija.
...In moj novi šef.

Lahko bi ga občudovala, če prejšnji mesec ne bi imela nepozabno eno noč.
Pustila sem ga z več orgazmi in prijetnimi spomini - namreč njegovo denarnico.
Zdaj strmi vame, kot da sem poredna kot njegovi italijanski lenuhi in jaz bi morala to sprejeti.
Ampak biti Judith "Jude" Humphry je, da nimam kaj izgubiti.
Dekle iz Brooklyna.
Neverjetno čudna.
Naslednica kupa medicinskih računov in raztrganega kavča.
Ko me gleda iz drugega konca sobe, vidim sijaj v njegovih očeh, kar naju naredi tekmeca.
On to ve.
In jaz.
V redakciji je vsak dan bitka.
V njegovi postelji vsak večer vojna.
Ampak moje srce je na kocki in bojim se, da bom dvignila belo zastavo.

EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)


   He had an American accent. Not French. American.Smooth. Familiar. Ordinary. He fired out sentences at the speed of light. I heard him, but I couldn’t listen. Shock gripped my body as the pieces of the puzzle fell into place. My dirty one-night stand was my boss. My lying, American boss. And now I had to deal with that—hopefully for a very long time, because I desperately needed this job.
Someone snapped their fingers, and my gaze shot from Célian’s face to Grayson.
His forehead had crumpled into a frown. “You look like you’re trying hard not to cry or having a really intense orgasm. I’m hoping for you that it’s the latter and some kind of a weird-slash-awesome condition. You okay?”
I nodded, scraping up a smile. “Sorry. Zero orgasms happening under this dress. I just zoned out for a second.”Lies. I was about to orgasm just remembering how good Célianhad felt parting my thighs with his big, callused hands and dipping his tongue into my slit.
Then words stopped streaming down on everyone’s heads like a scalding shower, and I realized that indeed there was something worse than hearing Célianspeak in his perfect American English. And that was not hearing him speak at all. Because now the icicles were pointed at me like a cocked gun.
I glanced up to meet his gaze. He stared at me for exactly one second before his focus snapped to Grayson. “Am I understood, Gregory?” he asked.
Gregory?
“Crystal clear, sir,” Grayson bowed, his voice trembling at the edges.
Célian jerked his chin toward me. “Your cover girl material is going downhill.”
God. Damn. Bastard.
He recognized me, and I knew it. His eyes had kindled, melting the ice and growing darker the minute our gazes mingled. He remembered, and maybe it killed him that I was here in the same way it buried me.
I want my iPod back, my gaze told him. I had over three thousand songs on that thing, and they were all too good to be wasted on that jerk.
“Jude Humphry. Junior reporter. It’s her first day,” Grayson highlighted, almost pleadingly. He shifted in my direction, as if he might need to physically protect me from the sharp-tongued, suited monster.
I suppressed a smile when I realized I’d told Célianmy last name was Spears. Well, he certainly wasn’t a Timberlake. He was a Laurent. An American monarch through and through. A billionaire, a powerful force, and judging by our one and only encounter—a raging playboy.
This man was inside you, I internally shrieked. And not just once. His cock was buried so deep in you, you screamed. You can still taste the salty, earthy flavor of his cum.You know he has a freckle on his lower back. You know what sound he makes when he empties inside a woman.
I internally thanked my mind for ruining my panties in public, and nodded. “Pleasure to meet you, sir.” I offered him my hand, my face flushing with embarrassment at my choice of words.
Everyone was looking at us, and there were at least fifty people in the room. Célian—if that was even his name—ignored my outreached hand. Instead, he turned his face to the man beside him. “Mathias, any other words of wisdom?”
Mathias? Wasn’t that his father? Just how cold was the man with the icy blue eyes?
“I think you touched everything,” said the big boss—and he did have a heavy French accent, so at least the lie had a seed. Mathias stared at me placidly, like he could read the secret his son and I shared on my face.
Célian spun toward me, uncuffing his cufflinks and rolling his sleeves up his veiny forearms. “Accounting can go back to their unfortunate line of work. Couture is excused from this meeting—though not forgiven for their horrid blog. Miss Humphry?” He snapped his fingers impatiently.
He was already waltzing down the narrow hallway, knowing I’d chase him like a puppy, and no doubt taking pleasure in that fact.
“I have a bone to pick with you.”
Bone, boner—same difference, right?
I shot Grayson a please-save-my-butt look. His eyes said, I would but I still have a life to live.
I followed Célian down the hall, my Chucks slapping the floor in a hurry. He sliced through the throng of accountants, then stopped at a corner office, opened the door, barked “Out!” to the man inside, and tilted his head for me to go in. I did. He closed the door, and it was just the two of us.
Two feet of empty space between us.

AUTHOR (AVTOR)


L.J. SHEN is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.
Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.
She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

L.J. SHEN je pisateljica sodobnih romanc in NA romanov, ki je prodajana po celem svetu. Živi v Severni Karolini s svojim možem, mladim sinom in mačko.

Preden je ustanovila L.J. (čeprav misli, da je pisanje v tretji osebi trapasto) je potovala po svetu in pridobivala prijatelje na vsaki lokaciji. Prijatelji z veseljem povedo, da je slaba spremljevalka, ki vedno pozabi prijateljeve rojstne dneve in nikoli ne pošilja božičnih voščilnic. 
Sama uživa v preprostih stvareh kot so preživljanje časa s svojo družino in prijatelji, branje, gledanje HBO in Netflix-a ter internetno zasledovanje Stephena Jamesa. Bere tri do pet knjig tedensko. Verjame, da bi morali čevlje Crocs in frizuro mullets prepovedati.

CD REISS is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. 
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. 
She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. 
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

CD REISS je najbolj prodajana pisateljica po New York Timesu. Ona še vedno seka drva in nosi vodo, kar je zakopano v drobnem tisku. Njen odvetnik opravljanja to delo. Če jo pokličete in se ne bo oglasila verjetno vleče svoje vedro. 

Rojena je bila v New Yorku, preselila se je v Hollywood, da bi magistrirala v pisanju scenarijev na univerzi USC. Če vas zanima, od tega ni bilo nič ampak ji je dalo dovolj velik ego, da je začela pisati romane. 
Pogosto se obrača na Shekespeara, ki je laskav ampak ji ni odgovarjal tak način pisanja. 
Če jo kdaj srečate, ji lahko rečete Christine.

Excerpt Reveal: LOVE ONLINE by PENELOPE WARD


Title (Naslov): Love Online
Author (Avtor): Penelope Ward, NY Times, USA Today, and #1 Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author
Genre (Kategorija): standalone contemporary romance (samostojna sodobna romantika)

Publishing date (Datum izida): August 27, 2018 (27. avgust 2018)


SYNOPSIS (OPIS)

From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a new, sexy STANDALONE novel. 

We met in the least likely of places. It started out innocently enough. I was “ScreenGod” and she was “Montana,” but of course, those weren’t our actual names, just the virtual cloaks we hid behind. 

Logging in at night and talking to her was my escape—my sanctuary. Her real name was Eden, I’d soon come to find out. 

From the first time we connected online, I found myself transfixed. 

She was an addiction. 

At first, we knew nothing about each other’s real identities…and she was adamant that we keep things that way. Anonymity had no effect on our unstoppable chemistry, though. If anything, it allowed us to open up even more in ways we may not have otherwise. 

Eden was funny, intelligent, gorgeous—everything I’d ever wanted in a woman. 

But I couldn’t really have her. 
I had accepted things would have to stay the way they were—until the day I found a clue that led me straight to her. 

So I took a chance. 

And that was when our love story really began.  



Najbolj prodajana pisateljica na lestvici New York Times, Penelope Ward pripravlja nov seksi samostojen roman.

Spoznala sva se na najmanj verjetnem kraju. Začelo se je čisto nedolžno. Jaz sem bil "ScrenGod" in ona je bila "Montana". Seveda to niso bila najina prava imena, ampak samo vzdevka za katerimi sva se skrivala. 

Vpisovanje ponoči in klepetanje z njo je bil moj pobeg - moje zatočišče. Njeno pravo ime je bilo Eden, kar sem kmalu ugotovil.

Že od samega začetka, ko sva se dopisovala, sem bil prevzet nad njo.

Ona je bila odvisna.

Na začetku nisva vedela ničesar o drug drugemu...in ona je vztrajala pri tem. Anonimnost ni imela vpliva na najino privlačno kemijo. Dovolila nama je, da sva si še bolj zaupala, kot bi se v drugih okoliščinah.

Eden je bila zabavna, inteligentna in čudovita - vse kar sem vedno želel pri ženski.

Ampak nisem je mogel zares imeti.
Sprijaznil sem se, da so stvari takšne kot so. Dokler nisem našel sledi, ki me je pripeljala naravnost do nje.

Zato sem izkoristil priložnost.

In tako se je najina ljubezenska zgodba začela. 

EXCERPT (ODLOMEK)


Copyright © 2018, Penelope Ward 

   Needing a few seconds to prepare, I closed my eyes the moment I knew he was about to turn on the camera. 
   I don’t know why I was so afraid to see him. Maybe I was worried his looks would somehow change the way I viewed him. I hated that I’d even had that thought. I didn’t want to be unattracted to him physically because I was so very drawn to him in every other way. Shouldn’t those be the ways that mattered? I was scared I would somehow feel differently about him, and he deserved better than to be judged on his physical appearance.
   “You can open your eyes,” he said. 
   My heart felt like it was pounding out of my chest. 
   Here goes. 
   One, two, three… 
   When I saw him right in front of me, my mouth fell open. 
   Oh. 
   Oh my. 
   Oh wow. 
   Big, glowing eyes. Perfect nose. Stubbled, angular jaw. Full lips. Strong arms. I just kept blinking because I couldn’t believe my eyes. He looked like a model or a movie star. A rush of insecurity hit me. 
   Is this a joke? 
   No, it wasn’t. 
   It was really him. 
   Ryder. 
   Oh my God. 
   The lust consuming me made me feel almost guilty. But I was so damn relieved that he was truly as beautiful on the outside as I believed him to be on the inside. He was almost too beautiful, if there were such a thing. 
   He looked nothing like the vague image I’d formed in my head, which was sort of like a silhouette without a clear face but with a brown beard, kind of like a hipster. Not sure why I’d pictured him like that. It was kind of funny how off base I was. This was not what I’d been expecting. Because how could someone so thoughtful, attentive, creative, and considerate be so strikingly handsome that he made me speechless? And it was clear now that his sexy voice absolutely fit him. 
   “You’re…” I hesitated. 
   “Oh shit.” He laughed. “What are you thinking?” 
   “No. No, no, no. Nothing bad at all. I just don’t even know how to articulate it. You’re…beautiful, Ryder. Absolutely beautiful.”  
   He let out a breath. “And you’re…handsome, Eden. Very handsome.” His impish grin was so sexy. 
   I chuckled. “I know beautiful is an odd term for a man, but you are. All this time you’ve been hiding from me when you’re drop-dead gorgeous. Why?” 
   “You really did think I was ashamed of my looks, huh?” 
   “Well, I’d be lying if I said that didn’t cross my mind. I wondered if there was something you were self-conscious about. That always made me a little sad. But it never mattered to me, because I’ve been connecting with you on a deeper level.” 
   “I think that’s exactly why I didn’t want to change things,” he said. “Why fix something if it ain’t broken?” When I fell silent, he asked, “What are you thinking?” 
   A nervous energy overtook me. “Nothing. I’m…still just taking you in.” 
   “Okay. Let me know when you’re done so I can stop sucking in my abs.”

SYNOPSIS (OPIS)


Célian Laurent.
Manhattan royalty.
Notorious playboy.
Heir to a media empire.
…And my new boss.
I could have impressed him, if not for last month’s unforgettable one-night stand.
I left it with more than orgasms and a pleasant memory—namely, his wallet.
Now he’s staring me down like I’m the dirt under his Italian loafers, and I’m supposed to take it.
But the thing about being Judith “Jude” Humphry is I have nothing to lose.
Brooklyn girl.
Infamously quirky.
Heir to a stack of medical bills and a tattered couch.
When he looks at me from across the room, I see the glint in his eyes, and that makes us rivals.
He knows it.
So do I.
Every day in the newsroom is a battle.
Every night in his bed, war.
But it’s my heart at stake, and I fear I’ll be raising the white flag.


Célian Laurent.
Kraljevič iz Manhattna.
Razvpit playboy.
Naslednik medijskega imperija.
...In moj novi šef.
Lahko bi ga občudovala, če prejšnji mesec ne bi imela nepozabno eno noč.
Pustila sem ga z več orgazmi in prijetnimi spomini - namreč njegovo denarnico.
Zdaj strmi vame, kot da sem poredna kot njegovi italijanski lenuhi in jaz bi morala to sprejeti.
Ampak biti Judith "Jude" Humphry je, da nimam kaj izgubiti.
Dekle iz Brooklyna.
Neverjetno čudna.
Naslednica kupa medicinskih računov in raztrganega kavča.
Ko me gleda iz drugega konca sobe, vidim sijaj v njegovih očeh, kar naju naredi tekmeca.
On to ve.
In jaz.
V redakciji je vsak dan bitka.
V njegovi postelji vsak večer vojna.
Ampak moje srce je na kocki in bojim se, da bom dvignila belo zastavo.

AUTHOR (AVTOR)


L.J. SHEN is an International #1 best-selling author of Contemporary Romance and New Adult novels. She lives in Northern California with her husband, young son and chubby cat.
Before she’d settled down, L.J. (who thinks referring to herself in the third person is really silly, by the way) traveled the world, and collected friends from all across the globe. Friends who’d be happy to report that she is a rubbish companion, always forgets peoples’ birthdays and never sends Christmas cards.
She enjoys the simple things in life, like spending time with her family and friends, reading, HBO, Netflix and internet-stalking Stephen James. She reads between three to five books a week and firmly believes Crocs shoes and mullets should be outlawed.

L.J. SHEN je pisateljica sodobnih romanc in NA romanov, ki je prodajana po celem svetu. Živi v Severni Karolini s svojim možem, mladim sinom in mačko.

Preden je ustanovila L.J. (čeprav misli, da je pisanje v tretji osebi trapasto) je potovala po svetu in pridobivala prijatelje na vsaki lokaciji. Prijatelji z veseljem povedo, da je slaba spremljevalka, ki vedno pozabi prijateljeve rojstne dneve in nikoli ne pošilja božičnih voščilnic. 
Sama uživa v preprostih stvareh kot so preživljanje časa s svojo družino in prijatelji, branje, gledanje HBO in Netflix-a ter internetno zasledovanje Stephena Jamesa. Bere tri do pet knjig tedensko. Verjame, da bi morali čevlje Crocs in frizuro mullets prepovedati.
