Haul | Books




Acum doi ani, fiind la un targ de facultati i-am descoperit pe cei de la Okian si i-am tinut minte de atunci datorita un semn de carte portocaliu cu o mustata si datorita multitudinii de carti pe care o aveau prezentata la acel targ. Cand am ajuns acasa i-am cautat pe internet si am fost placut surprinsa sa vad ca au o multime de carti in engleza la preturi foarte rezonabile. Dupa atata timp m-am hotarat sa imi comand si eu cateva carti de ei si astazi vi le voi prezenta.

Two years ago I was at a fair were I discovered Okian (it`s an online library from my country) and I remember them thanks to a orange bookmark with a moustache on it and because of the books they had dispayed there. When I got home I searched them on the internet and I was pleasently surprised to see that they had a lot of books in english at very reasonable prices. After all this time a placed an order and today I will show you what I got and I will put a link and the prices from Amazon after every book.


the rosie project

Descrierea de pe spatele cartii:
La treizeci si noua de ani, Don Tillman, un profesor de genetica suferind – fara sa stie – de sindromul Asperger, e inca burlac. Desi e destept si aratos, nu prea are noroc in dragoste. Dar de data asta e hotarit sa reuseasca. De aceea a initiat Proiectul Sotia, pe baza unui chestionar de saisprezece pagini, care il va ajuta sa-si afle partenera perfecta prin eliminarea pas cu pas a tipurilor feminine nepotrivite: veganele, microbistele, creationistele, fumatoarele, ignorantele, homeopatele... Numai ca frumoasa Rosie, care da buzna in viata lui, e exact pe dos: munceste intr-un bar, e vegetariana, fumeaza si, in plus, incearca sa dea de urma tatalui ei biologic. „Cea mai incompatibila femeie din lume”, conchide Don. Si totusi, se lasa implicat, fara sa stie prea bine de ce, intr-un nou proiect: s-o ajute pe Rosie sa-si gaseasca tatal prin intermediul unor mostre de ADN prelevate pe ascuns. Si sa descopere ca dragostea si viata nu urmeaza intotdeauna regulile stiintei.

Cover description:
Love isn't an exact science - but no one told Don Tillman. A thirty-nine-year-old geneticist, Don's never had a second date. So he devises the Wife Project, a scientific test to find the perfect partner. Enter Rosie - 'the world's most incompatible woman' - throwing Don's safe, ordered life into chaos. Arrestingly endearing and entirely unconventional, Graeme Simsion’s distinctive debut will resonate with anyone who has ever tenaciously gone after life or love in the face of great challenges. The Rosie Project is a rare find: a book that restores our optimism in the power of human connection.



if I stay

Descrierea de pe spatele cartii:
Mia este o violoncelista talentata in varsta de 17 ani, cu o familie iubitoare si un prieten minunat, Adam. Ea nu trebuie decat sa aleaga daca va merge la New York pentru a studia la Julliard sau daca va ramane in Oregon cu cei dragi. insa intr-o dimineata cu ninsoare, totul se schimba, iar decizia pe care brusc trebuie sa o ia este dramatica si dureroasa. Mia isi pierde parintii si fratele mai mic intr-un accident rutier, si, cu toate ca nu isi aminteste momentul impactului, ea ii poate vedea pe cei din jur si pe sine. Romanul este scris la persoana intai, Mia evoca evenimente din viata sa, descrie ceea ce vede si aude in spital, desi nu poate simti nimic si este din ce in ce mai slabita. Dragostea pentru cei ramasi in viata si pentru Adam si pasiunea pentru muzica clasica vor determina alegerea pe care tanara o face la final.

Cover description:
Everybody has to make choices. Some might break you. For seventeen-year-old Mia, surrounded by a wonderful family, friends and a gorgeous boyfriend decisions might seem tough, but they're all about a future full of music and love, a future that's brimming with hope.

As alone as she'll ever be, Mia must make the most difficult choice of all. Haunting, heartrending and ultimately life-affirming, If I Stay will make you appreciate all that you have, all that you've lost - and all that might be.
girl online

Acesta carte nu este disponibila inca in limba romana, dar o puteti gasi pe Okian in limba engleza.

Cover description:
I have this dream that, secretly, all teenage girls feel exactly like me. And maybe one day, when we realize that we all feel the same, we can all stop pretending we're something we're not...But until that day, I'm going to keep it real on this blog and keep it unreal in real life. Penny has a secret. Under the alias Girl Online, Penny blogs her hidden feelings about friendship, boys, high school drama, her crazy family, and the panic attacks that have begun to take over her life. When things go from bad to worse, her family whisks her away to New York, where she meets Noah, a gorgeous, guitar-strumming American. Suddenly Penny is falling in love - and capturing every moment of it on her blog. But Noah has a secret, too, one that threatens to ruin Penny's cover - and her closest friendship - forever.
#girlboss

Nici #Girlboss nu este deocamdata disponibila in limba romana, dar la fel ca Girl Online o puteti gasi pe Okian.

Cover description:
A #Girlboss is in charge of her own life. She gets what she wants because she works for it.' The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn't fashion - it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she'd taken for the health insurance. It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees. Sophia's never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she's written #Girlboss for outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers. #Girlboss includes Sophia's story, yet is infinitely bigger than Sophia. It's deeply personal yet universal.
