So if you guys saw my story yesterday, you probably already know I had zero luck with the weather for photos. I'm angling for Monday now 🤞🏻

I'm suuuper exhausted babes, but here's a quick @fairyloot item feature from the May (?) Box. Or April? (June?) I know, I know, too many to choose from 😅 I adore this quote coaster though 😍


Goodnight loves 😘

Serinin ilk kitabı heycanla bitince hemen ikinci kitabına geçmiştim. Yalnız bu sefer ilk kitap kadar hızlı geçmedi. Benden kaynaklı mı kitaptan kaynaklı mı çözemedim ama.
Kestrel İmparator'un oğlu ile düğün hazırlığı içindeyken Arin insanlarını özgür kılmak uğruna bir şeylerin döndüğünün farkında. Kestrel İmparator'un da içinde bulunduğu bir sırrın peşindeyken Arin de Kestrel'in sırrını açığa çıkarma derdinde.
İlk kitap kadar heycanlı gelmedi başında. Ara ara Kestrel'in yaptıklarına atarlanmakla geçirdim. Sonra Arin'e sinir oldum. Yine bir karaktere acıdım bu sefer Verex'e. Çok iyi bir insan çıktı onu da sevdim. Neyse derken sonları fiyu fiyu 😁 hemen 3.kitabı aldırdı yine elime. Aslında çok durgun da geçmedi aralarda heycanlı olaylar da vardı ama biraz kopuk okuyunca ilki kadar heycanlı gelmedi doğal olarak. Bakalım finalde ne olacak. Sanki olaylar burda sağlam kopacak gibi hissediyorum. #kazananınsuçu #thewinnerscrime #marierutkoski #pegasusyayınları @pegasusyayinlari

⚔️Проклятье победителя — это когда ты получаешь свой товар, но по слишком высокой цене. ⚔️

⠀Хочу перезалить отзыв на любимую серию, которую по праву могу назвать лучшей в своём жанре среди прочитанного в 2017 году. Итак, «Трилогия Победителя» Мари Руткоски. ⠀
⠀Кестрел-17-летняя дочь главнокомандующего империей. В их империи есть только 2 выхода для девушек, достигших 20-летнего возраста: выйти замуж или пойти в армию. Отец Кестрел, безусловно, желает для нее военной жизни. Что необычно для данного жанра, главная героиня умна и рассудительна. И она потрясающий стратег. Но увы, не воин, который мечтает о военной жизни. И данный факт не может не расстраивать ее отца, уважение которого Кестрел неизменно стремится получить. ⠀
⠀Арин- геранский раб, но 10 лет назад он занимал совсем другое положение в обществе. До того момента, пока отец Кестрел не завоевал Геран и не отнял у Арина все. Теперь же его единственное стремление - месть. ⠀
⠀Кестрел покупает Арина на рабовладельческих торгах, хотя и не собиралась этого делать. Что побудило ее к такому поступку? Она увидела в глазах раба ту же непокорность, какую испытывала по отношению к воле своего отца. И это предопределило ее выбор.
Они не должны были встретиться, и уж точно не должны были полюбить друг друга. Но встретились и полюбили. Хотя их историю нельзя назвать простой. ⠀
⠀Взаимоотношения Кестрел и Арина были очень трудными и изменялись с каждой страницей, раскрывая все больше характеры героев. Я давно не встречала книги, в которых настолько полно раскрыты ВСЕ герои. Все они цельные, динамичные и жутко интересные, а наблюдать за их развитием одно удовольствие. Повествование ведётся от лица обоих главных героев. Что просто огромный плюс, и я никогда не устану это повторять! Им предстоит сделать сложнейший выбор. Выбор между честью, родиной и любовью. Но возможно ли это сделать, не потеряв нечто важное? ⠀

"Kestrel bir hayat satın almış, onu sevmiş ve satmıştı."

Ya ben bu kitabı çok sevmiştim. Ama okuması acı vericiydi resmen. Özellikle sonu. Ve okuduğum yorumlara göre seri devamı da öyleymiş. Hatta bu yorumları okumakta biraz ileri gidip son kitaptan baya bir spoi yedim.
Yine de hala devam etmeyi çok istiyorumm.

Synopsis
.
This is the second book of The Winner's Trilogy.
.
The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.
.
As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

O Beijo do Vencedor teve um ótimo enredo para finalizar a trilogia com chave de ouro. Um livro intenso cheio de ação, lutas e sacrifícios. Em breve sai resenha no blog:

@Plataforma_21
Ano: 2017 /
Páginas: 448
Sinopse: A guerra começou. Arin está à frente dela com novos aliados e o império como inimigo. Embora tenha convencido a si mesmo de que não ama mais Kestrel, Arin ainda não a esqueceu. Mas também não consegue esquecer como ela se tornou o tipo de pessoa que ele despreza. A princesa se importava mais com o império do que com a vida de pessoas inocentes – e, sem dúvida, menos ainda com ele.
Pelo menos é o que Arin pensa.
Enquanto isso, no gélido norte, Kestrel é prisioneira em um campo de trabalhos forçados. Ela deseja desesperadamente escapar. Deseja que Arin saiba o que sacrificou por ele. E deseja fazer com que o império pague pelo que fizeram a ela.
Mas ninguém consegue o que quer apenas desejando.
Conforme a guerra se intensifica, Kestrel e Arin descobrem que o mundo já não é mais o mesmo.
O oriente está contra o ocidente, e os dois se encontram no meio de tudo isso. Com tanto a perder, é possível alguém realmente ser o vencedor?

The Winner’s Curse by Marie Rutkoski is about a dystopian society that consists of two groups of people: Valorians and Herranis. After a devastating war, the Herranis were captured and forced into slavery by the Valorians. Ever since, the Herranis have been longing for revenge and freedom. The protagonist, Kestrel, is Valorian General Trajan’s daughter. This means that she is highly respected and very wealthy. Her father expects her to join the military like him, but also gives her the option to choose marriage instead. Kestrel is uninterested in both of these options and would rather practice and perform music. Her life completely changes when she attends a horrifying Herrani auction. She purchases a Herrani named Arin and quickly falls in love with him. Unfortunately, Arin is hiding a secret that can cause grave consequences for Kestrel. •


This book is perfect for readers who like dystopian fiction, fantasy, and political fiction. The author is very successful in describing the society and the setting, but in my opinion, the characters are not described as much. The first half of the book is slow paced, however the second half is filled with action and adventure. Arin becomes more important as the plot progresses and Kestrel’s personality develops as well. Overall, this is a very interesting storyline and it is executed nicely. •


⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️/5



Also by this author: The Winner’s Crime, The Winner’s Kiss, The Shadow Society •

Bom dia meus queridos tudo bem?

Hoje vim conversar um pouquinho com vocês sobre livros de fantasia. Sou completamente apaixonada pelo gênero, inclusive virei leitora 4 anos atrás com livros de fantasia e até hoje amo!

Estou em uma fase agora que tenho lido bem poucos livros do gênero então pra matar a saudade vim indicar pra vocês a trilogia do vencedor!

A trilogia é composta pelos livros, A Maldição do Vencedor, O Crime do Vencedor e O Beijo do Vencedor, publicados pela editora @plataforma21_ .São livros maravilhosos!

Kestrel e Arin são personagens incríveis e extremamente inteligentes. A escrita da Marie te prende completamente e você não quer largar o livro só esperando pra ver o que vai acontecer a seguir! Amei de paixão essa história.
Os livros tem sua narração intercalada entre terceira e primeira pessoa. Sabe quando você lê um livro e agradece por já ter em mãos a continuação por que esperar para saber o iria acontecer é uma tortura? Comigo foi assim do primeiro ao último livro não consegui largar!

Vou deixar alguns quotes do primeiro livro para vocês terem um gostinho do que esperar.
.
. " A Felicidade depende de ser-se livre [...] e a liberdade depende de ser-se corajoso."
.
.
"Não é isso o que as histórias fazem? Tornam falsas as coisas reais, e reais as falsas?" .
.
.
“Ele era grato aos valorianos por terem o tornado forte. Se fosse forte o bastante, poderia sobreviver àquela noite.”
.
.
E aí gente gostaram?
Quero saber agora quem aí já leu e se vocês tem algum livro parecido com esse pra me indicar?
Ah também me digam qual é o seu livro de fantasia favorito?

📚 J'ai lu !
Bonjour bookstagram, j'espère que vous allez bien !
J'ai terminé un peu plus tôt dans la semaine « The Crime » (t2 de The Curse). On y retrouve Kestrel, au coeur des intrigues du pouvoir : elle ne doit cesser de mentir autour d'elle pour préserver sa vie mais aussi celle d'Arin, sa famille.. Mais tout ne se passe pas comme prévu ! ➡️ Je l'ai moins aimé que le premier, mais j'ai tout de même hâte de lire la suite et de terminer cette trilogie !
Vous l'avez lu ?

I love this series's covers so much.

📖 #Resenha
🏷️ A Maldição do Vencedor
Marie Rutkoski | @plataforma21_
🌟 5,0 + 💜

"Ele conhecia a lei das coisas: pessoas em lugares muito iluminados não são capazes de ver nas trevas."

Há poucas décadas o povo valoriano conseguiu conquistar Herran, uma região próspera onde há muito faziam grandes negócios. O povo valoriano, naturalmente guerreiro, logo dominou os pacíficos herranis e os tomaram como seus escravos.

Kestrel é uma valoriana de destaque, não por suas quase inexistentes habilidades de combate, mas por ser filha do general principal responsável pela conquista de Herran. Tudo o que Kestrel mais preza, no entanto, é poder tocar piano... muito embora a música, para os valorianos, ser menos arte e mais uma tarefa para os serviçais (já que os herranis eram conhecidos por sua inclinação para música).

Em um leilão, no entanto, Kestrel oferece um grande lance por um escravo "cantor" que muda completamente a maneira da sociedade vê-la. E também transforma completamente o mundo dela.

A autora me conquistou a cada trecho onde descreve todo o processo de desumanização que ocorre na escravidão, destacando o quanto menos pessoas e mais posses os escravos se tornam. Ao mesmo tempo, explora com delicadeza a humanidade daqueles que sofrem nessa situação. ⠀
Apesar de conseguir antecipar os eventos do livro conforme avançamos na leitura, todo o pano de fundo onde se pauta a história torna tudo tão plausível que torna a leitura ainda mais fluida e instigante.

Esse livro foi adquirido através de uma troca no Skoob, e agora estou ansiosa para ler a continuação! Já leu esse livro? O que achou?

« N'est-ce pas là la magie des histoires : rendre vrai ce qui est faux et faux ce qui est vrai ? »

h e l l o b o o k s t a g r a m 🔗

Je vous retrouve ce soir pour vous parler d'un dilemme de lectrice. J'adore les sagas. Je suis même accroc. Mais malheureusement je traîne souvent à lire les suites, alors j'oublie ce qu'il s'est passé. Est ce que vous aussi, il vous arrive de faire durer certaines lectures ? Quelle est la suite de saga qui vous attend depuis beaucoup trop longtemps ? 🕒 Moi, il s'agit de The Crime, le tome 2 de The Curse, j'ai adoré le tome 1 que j'ai lu l'année dernière mais je n'ai toujours pas pris le temps de continuer cette saga. Honte à moi ! Et vous ? Est ce que vous devez faire face à ce même dilemme ? (dites oui ça me rassure rai beaucoup 😭) 💜 🇬🇧 I want to talk with you about a reader's dilemma. I love sagas. I am even hooked. But unfortunately I often hang out reading the sequels, so I forget what happened. What is the following saga that has been waiting for you for far too long? 🕒 Me, this is The Crime, volume 2 of The Winner's Curse, I loved the volume 1 that I've read last year but I still have not taken the time to continue this saga. Shame on me ! And you ? Do you have to deal with this same dilemma? (say yes it will reassure me a lot 😭) 💜

HAPPY 1 Year Anniversary, @canterburyroadco!

In February 2017, while participating in the #otspsecretsister project, I was paired with one of the fiercest and spunkiest dragon queens (@ladyshanelise). After months of being her secret pen pal, Shan became one of my closest friends. And when Shan told me she was opening her own candle shop (@canterburyroadco), I was 100% behind her. I love that with each candle Shannon makes, her creations illuminate so much passion, magic, and love. •
Happy 1-year, Shannon! You have created the best kind of magic for booklovers all around the world. I am so proud of you. 🖤

QOTD: What’s a series that took you by surprise?
.
@alyaofwinterfell recently mentioned The Winner’s Curse, which was my favorite series I read in 2016! The hardcover copy of The Winner’s Kiss, the final book in this trilogy, features a cool map with details I really enjoy. (Zoom in to see!) I was skeptical of these books because of the paperback covers, but then I saw Marie Rutkoski speak on a panel and decided to take a chance on this series. To my surprise, I loved it!
.
Challenges for today:
.
#bndtpjuly18: better than it looks

En este libro por fin Arin se entera de toda la verdad en torno a Kestrel y va en su busca 😍😍. Qué ilusión me hizo cuando va a por ella! El personaje femenino me ha gustado mucho desde el principio, y en este libro tenemos a una Kestrel diferente por cosas que ha vivido y sufrido. Pero poco a poco vuelve a ser la misma de siempre con su carácter, seguridad e inteligencia, y se recupera siendo fiel a lo que realmente piensa y siente. El personaje masculino me daba un poco de coraje, porque pensase tan mal de ella después de todo lo que habían vivido, pero luego rectifica y se da cuenta de que se ha equivocado... y hace lo imposible por arreglarlo. La historia lo tiene todo. Me ha dado mucha pena terminar con esta trilogía que me ha sorprendido y alegrado con su lectura. Espero poder leer pronto algo más de esta autora. Le doy ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

I haven't read this series in a few years but I remember loving it!
I have a weird reading habit where if I really liked the book or series, I have to read it twice in order to commit it to memory. Just once and it'll be hazy in my mind. Any more than twice will have no improvement on my memory of it, but I still read some series multiple times just because I love them.

Does anyone else have any odd habits like that? 😉

Hey🙈
Mögt ihr Duftkerzen? Ich mag sie theoretisch und hab auch 3, aber ich zünde sie so gut wie nie an oder so😅😂. Aber zum Bilder machen kann man sie gebrauchen😂🙈. Ich habe auch heute wieder neue Bilder gemacht, aber auf denen ist das Licht so komisch...das Wetter ist immer so schlecht😑. Für mich sind jetzt schon die Hälfte der Sommerferien vorbei😵😔 und diese 3 Wochen waren so kurz😵😔 also so kamen sie mir vor😂😅. Achja die Duftkerze auf dem Bild riecht nach Orchidee und ist von Woolworth. Und es ist schon wieder nach Mitternacht😂😅, na wer ist noch wach?🙈😏

"Às vezes, achamos que queremos uma coisa, quando precisamos é deixa-la para trás."
O crime do vencedor
Trilogia do vencedor #2
Existe a tentação e existe a coisa certa a se fazer. E está cada vez mais difícil para Kestrel fazer a melhor escolha.
Um noivado imperial significa uma celebração após a outra: cafés da manhã com cortesãos e dignatários influentes, bailes, fogos de artifício e festas até o amanhecer. Para Kestrel, porém, significa viver numa gaiola forjada por ela mesma. Com a aproximação do casamento, ela deseja confessar a Arin, seu ex-escravo e atual governador de Harren: só aceitou se casar com o príncipe herdeiro do império em troca da liberdade dele, Arin. Mas será que Kestrel pode confiar nele? Ou, pior: será que pode confiar em si mesma?
No jogo do poder, Kestrel está se tornando perita em blefes. Age como uma espiã na corte. Se for pega, será desmascarada como traidora de seu próprio império. Ainda assim, ela não consegue deixar de buscar uma forma de mudar seu terrível mundo... e está muito perto de descobrir um segredo tenebroso.
Nesta sequência fascinante e devastadora de A maldição do vencedor, Marie Rutkoski desvela o alto custo de mentiras perigosas e alianças pouco confiáveis. A revelação da verdade é iminente e, quando finalmente vier à tona, Kestrel e Arin vão descobrir o preço exato de seus crimes.

Em breve resenha no blog.

{KAZANANIN LANETİ}
#kitapyorumu
-
Amanın da amanın ne güzel bir kitapmış ki bu 😍
Hani bazı kitaplar vardır ya; herkes çok sever, kapağı çok güzeldir, okumak için can atarsınız ancak Noel Baba’dan istemek zorunda kalırsınız çünkü kitabın yayınevi Pegasus Yayınları’dır. İşte tam o kitaplardan ama işi Noel Baba’ya bırakmayın. Böbreğinizi İphone için satacağınıza bu seri için satın ulan! (2. ve 3. kitabı almak için darphane patlatma planları yaptığım gibi söylemler dolaşmakta etrafta. Asılsız haberlere inanmayınız arkadaşlar).
Neyse bu kadar gırgır şamata yeter. Ciddi olalım. Öhöm.
Kitap bir tarihi kurgu ve dostum ben tarihi kurgu okumaya bayılıyorum. Kitap Kızıl İsyan serisine çok benziyor. Kestrel ile Kısrak biribirinin aynısı. İkisi de çok zeki ve cesur karakterler. Darrow ile Arin’in ise kişilik olarak çok benzediğini düşünmüyorum ama karakterlerin hikayedeki işlevi/durumu biraz benziyor. Kızıl İsyan’ın geçmişteki hali gibi. Bu da biraz korkutucu çünkü savaş söz konusu olduğunda Kazananın Laneti’nde ölebilirler ama Kızıl İsyan’da ‘Amaan ölmez ölmez kitap gelecekte geçiyor.’ diyordum. Tabii hiç ölünmüyor değil ama anladınız bence 😂 Kızıl İsyan ile kıyaslamaya devam edersem, Kazananın Laneti daha akıcı. Kızıl İsyan Serisi’ni seviyorsanız Kazananın Laneti’ni mutlaka okuyun. Kazananın Laneti Serisini seviyorsanız da Kızıl İsyan Serisini...
Kestrel❤️❤️❤️Arin be! Yılın çifti. Gönlümün sultanları. İkisine de ayrı ayrı aşığım 😍. Ayrıca kitapta en çok dikkatimi çeken noktalardan biri cinsiyet eşitliği. Tarihi kurgu okumayı çok seviyorum ancak bu olaylar sinirlerimi bozuyor. Yok evlenmek zorundasın yok hanımefendi ol yok efendim mirastan ne kadar alıyorsun falan da filan. Ama Kazananın Laneti’nde kadınlar da asker olabiliyor, düellolara katılabiliyor. 🤺
Kitabın ilk 150 sayfası falan benim için işkenceydi. Araya sürekli meşguliyet girdi, okuyamadım bu yüzden de kitabın ilk yarısı biraz sıkıcı geçti. Ama özellikle 180. sayfalardan itibaren çok heyecanlıydı.
Sonuç olarak ben kitabı çok acayip sevdim. Okuyun! Okuyun! Okuyun! Mükemmeldi 😍

#kitapyorumu #bookreview
Yine uzun zamandır merak ettiğim serilerden birine sonunda seri tamamlanınca başladım.
Seneler önce Herrani topraklarını ele geçiren Varolyalı generalın kızı Kestrel açıkarttırmada bir Herrani kölesi satın alır. Kastrel babasına hayatıyla ilgili bir seçim yapması gerekirken bir taraftan Arin sayesinde Herrani insanını tanımaya başlıyor. Birbirlerine karşı duygular hissetmeye başlasalar da hem iki milletin sınıflandırılmasından kaynaklı olaylar bir de isyanlar sayesinde sonları ne olacak?
Arka kapakta çok güzel söylemiş. 'Birlikte olabilmek için halklarına; ülkelerine sadık kalmak için ise birbirlerine ihanet etmelidirler diye. Konunun en iyi özeti.
Bir kere inanılmaz akıcı bir kitaptı. Yoğunluğuma rağmen elimden bırakamadım. Heycanlı yerlerde özellikle ne olacak diye diye sonunda durmadan devam kitabına geçtim. Kestrel çok stratejik bir zekaya sahip zaten onun sayesinde.. neyse anlatmim. Arada aman aman bir aşk veya heycanlı yerlerde ultra adrenalin yok ama siz onu hissediyorsunuz bir şekilde. Arin'e tam içim ısındı derken ortasında sinir ettirdi. Ama özgürlük uğruna nelerden vazgeçilmez ki. Bir de Ronan'a acıdım. Iyi bir karakterdi o da bence. Hani kendini beğenmiş üçüncü şahıs gibi göremedim.
Neyse uzun lafın kısası ben Kazananın Suçu'nu okumaya gidiyorum. Nasıl bitecek meraklardayım 😄 #kazananınlaneti #thewinnerscurse #marierutkoski #pegasusyayınları @pegasusyayinlari

Synopsis
.
This is the first book of The Winner's Curse trilogy.
Winning what you want may cost you everything you love...
.
As a general’s daughter in a vast empire that revels in war and enslaves those it conquers, seventeen-year-old Kestrel has two choices: she can join the military or get married. But Kestrel has other intentions.
.
One day, she is startled to find a kindred spirit in a young slave up for auction. Arin’s eyes seem to defy everything and everyone. Following her instinct, Kestrel buys him—with unexpected consequences. It’s not long before she has to hide her growing love for Arin.
.
But he, too, has a secret, and Kestrel quickly learns that the price she paid for a fellow human is much higher than she ever could have imagined.

« Gagner peut être la pire des malédictions ». 🌸🎹
.
Hello bookstagram 🍁
THE CURSE, @marierutkoski aux éditions @lumeneditions : 18/20. 🏆

Quasi coup de cœur pour cette trilogie ! L’histoire de Kestrel va de surprise en surprise avec une personnalité complexe et bien creusée. Le personnage d’Arin est tout aussi incroyable et combatif, les dilemmes auxquels il est confronté tellement difficiles.
La comparaison jeux politiques/jeux de réflexions est hyper originale et j’ai vraiment accroché aux stratégies politiques et militaires de ce monde pleins de conquêtes. Je vous le recommande vivement 😉

JUNE WRAP-UP. 📚
Have you read any of these books?

This is stupid late and I haven’t done wrap-ups in a while, so I thought I’d share what I’ve read in June since they happened to be stacked up. I managed to read 16 books. 💪🏾

Favourites of that month was #TheTerrible by #YrsaDaleyWard. Think it was my only 5 star read. It was haunting and left it’s mark. 📚

Least favourite of the month was #ToKillAKingdom (read as an ebook). I was disappointed by how mediocre the whole story was. Especially since it started off so badass, I thought I would’ve been more brutal. It just switched to an annoying love story that was barely convincing. 😒

The Winner’s Trilogy was a glorious reread. Such an underrated series. Well-developed, incredible character arcs, beautifully written, I couldn’t get enough. I need more books by #MarieRutkoski. 😍

If you are into your contemporaries, #JennBennett is one to add to your list. They’re light-hearted, full to the brim with sarcasm and amazing dialogue.
Now, #Illuminae... I’m confused as to how I feel towards the series. I’ll write a mini review on it once I read #Obsidio, but consider me conflicted.
And that’s a wrap. 😆

#SunnySummerChallenge - Menu 4 : vacances découvertes. Lecture 1/4

Aloha de la Grèce ! (Ouais je sais là c'est hawaïen mais je parle pas un mot de grec 😂)

Bon... Me voilà bien embêtée pour donner mon avis sur ce deuxième tome. Parce que j'avais des certitudes tout du long et puis les 60 dernières pages ont tout changé... Et je déteste quand ça fait ça.

Pendant la quasi totalité du livre, Arin m'a clairement saoulé. D'ailleurs les chapitres sous son point de vue m'ont profondément ennuyés. Il ne sait pas ce qu'il veut et à force ça me fatigue. Sans parler de cette colère et cette agressivité constantes en lui qui, personnellement, me dérangent. Il est persuadé de tout savoir et ne cherche jamais plus loin. Il est chiant quoi ! XD

Quant à Kestrel, elle m'a agacée au debut à force de se contredire vis à vis de Arin. Au final j'ai préféré son histoire avec Verex, moins gnangnan. J'ai également bien aimé sa relation avec l'empereur.

Et puis plus le roman avançait, plus je réalisais des choses sur elle. Et en fait je l'aime vraiment beaucoup cette petite ! Elle n'est pas parfaite, mais elle pense aux autres avant de penser à elle. Et pourtant toutes les personnes qu'elle aime se retournent contre elle et j'avoue que j'éprouve beaucoup d'empathie pour cette jeune fille au final très seule.

Par contre j'ai eu du mal à accrocher aux intrigues politiques. Je ne peux pas le reprocher au roman, mais comme il s'agit là du thème principal ça ne m'a pas facilité la lecture.

Et puis il y a ces 60 dernières pages... MAIS CETTE FIN QUOI !!!!!! Aaaaargh ! D'un coup Arin qui m'enervait tant m'a fait beaucoup de peine. Kestrel m'a brisée le coeur. Je ne m'attarderai pas sur les autres personnages au coeur de l'action pour ne pas spoiler mais... pfff. Voilà.

Et maintenant je veux lire la suite qui peut être très prometteuse. Et en même temps 60 pages sur un bouquin de 540... C'est peu. J'ai peur d'être déçue une fois de plus.

Vous avez lu cette trilogie ? Est ce que je dois m'attendre à toujours plus d'intrigues politiques et de peines de coeur gnangnan pour la suite ou est ce que la tournure des événements est différente ? Need des avis please ! 😘

ENG Some covers are just amazing! And that's reason why I decided to buy Winner's Curse. It's still on my tbr list, but I hope that I'll read all book in series in August.

CZ Některé obálky jsou úžasné! Což je důvod, proč jsem se rozhodla koupit Kletbu vítězů (ty české obálky jsou podle mého fakt hrozné). Kniha je stále na mém tbr listu, ale doufám, že přečtu všechny knih v sérii v srpnu.

Kazananın Öpücüğü (#thewinnerkiss) || Kitap Yorumu
#kitapyorumu
Sonradan, suskunlarken, Arin, Kestrel'e baktı. Kestrel'in yanına uzanmıştı, bir dirseğinin üstünde doğruldu. "Sanırım uyanık değilim." Parmakları Kestrel'in teninde süzüldü: Burun, kirpikler, dağılmış saç örgüsü, omuz. "Çok güzel."
Kestrel gülümsedi. "Senin gibi."
Bir seriye daha veda etmek beni hem üzüyor hemde serinin sonu aklıma geldikçe sevindiriyor. Kazananın Laneti Serisi benim kesinlikle en sevdiğim seriler arasına girdi. Karakterleri çok sevdim ve yazarın dili çok güzeldi. Şu anda bu yazar kitap çıkarsa koşarak alıp okurum. Hem çok akıcıydı hemde olaylar uzatılmadığı için çabuk gelişiyordu. Zaten tüm kitaplarda üçüncü kişinin ağzından anlatıldığı için hem Arin'in hemde Kestrel'in neler yaptığını, neler yaşadığını biliyorduk ve bunlar da uzatılmamıştı. Yazar biraraya getirmemek için uğraşmamıştı. Bu yüzden bu, kitaptaki en sevdiğim şey oldu. Ayrıca olayların gidişatı, karakterlerin tepkileri ve bununla beraber yazarın muazzam dili olunca kitap bambaşka bir dünya oldu benim için. Özellikle sonlarda bir bölüm vardı ki çok çok uzundu. Savaş bölümüydü ve ben bir bölümü okurken nefesimi tutup heyecandan yerimde durmadığımı hatırlamıyorum. O kadar güzeldi. Sürekli neler olacağını merak ederek, hızla çevirdim sayfaları. Her bölüm bu şekildeydi ama o savaş bölümü en efsanesiydi. O sahneleri okurken Kestrel'in zekasına bir kere daha hayran kaldım resmen. Ana karakterleri ne kadar çok sevdiysem yan karakterleri de o kadar sevdim. Roshar'ı okudukça kahkaha attım. Kitaba gerçekten öyle şen şakrak biri lazımmış. Arin ve Kestrel ile dalga geçişlerini okumak çok eğlenceliydi. Özellikle o son sayfalarda yaptığı şeyi hiç unutamayacağım. Arin'e verdiği değeri okumak gerçekten gözlerimi doldurdu. Aynı şekilde Arin'in kuzenini de çok sevdim. Onu zaten seriye girdiğinden beri seviyordum ve bu kitapta da Kestrel'e olan şefkatli yaklaşımları çok hoşuma gitti. Peki asıl bu kitapta Arin ve Kestrel ikilisi nasıldı? Bu konudan uzun uzun konuşmak istiyorum aslında çünkü tek kelimeyle mükemmeldi. Arin'in o şefkatli, özlem ve pişmanlık dolu kalbini okumak beni paramparça etti resmen.

📚 J'ai lu / lecture en cours --
Hello bookstagram,
Pour ce premier post je commence avec un coup de ❤️ : The Curse de Marie Rutkoski.
J'ai réellement été surprise lors du premier tome qui va très vite. Les personnages ainsi que l'action évoluent rapidement et les scènes se succèdent. Il n'y a pas de quoi s'ennuyer ! Concernant les personnages, j'ai réellement apprécié Kestrel, dont les talents de stratège se révèlent de pages en pages, même si je reste un peu sur la réserve au sujet d'Arin.
La lecture du tome 2, The Crime réserve visiblement plein de surprises... !
Et vous, vous l'avez lu ? ❤️

Résumé 🗡️😍👌🏻
Gagner peut être la pire des malédictions...
Fille du plus célèbre général d'un empire conquérant, Kestrel n'a que deux choix devant elle : s'enrôler dans l'armée ou se marier. Mais à dix-sept ans à peine, elle n'est pas prête à se fermer ainsi tous les horizons. Un jour, au marché, elle cède à une impulsion et acquiert pour une petite fortune un esclave rebelle à qui elle espère éviter la mort. Bientôt, toute la ville ne parle plus que de son coup de folie. Kestrel vient de succomber à la " malédiction du vainqueur " : celui qui remporte une enchère achète forcément pour un prix trop élevé l'objet de sa convoitise.
Elle ignore encore qu'elle est loin, bien loin, d'avoir fini de payer son geste. Joueuse hors pair, stratège confirmée, elle a la réputation de toujours savoir quand on lui ment. Elle croit donc deviner une partie du passé tourmenté de l'esclave, Arin, et comprend qu'il n'est pas qui il paraît... Mais ce qu'elle soupçonne n'est qu'une infime partie de la vérité, une vérité qui pourrait bien lui coûter la vie, à elle et à tout son entourage.
Gagner sera-t-il pour elle la pire des malédictions ? Jeux de pouvoir, coups de bluff et pièges insidieux : dans un monde nouveau, né de l'imagination d'une auteure unanimement saluée pour son talent, deux jeunes gens que tout oppose se livrent à une partie de poker menteur qui pourrait bien décider de la destinée de tout un peuple. #thecurse #marierutkoski #lumen #ariel #book #bookstagram #bookphotography #booklove #summer #wintercure #fantasy #youngadult @lumeneditions @marierutkoski

🔥 Bonjour à tous , j’ai terminé le premier tome de Divergente récemment et j’ai décidé de reprendre ( enfin! ) la lecture du troisième tome de la trilogie de Marie Rutkoski.
.
J’avais dévoré le tome 1 et 2 , ce qui fait que j’attendais avec impatience ce dernier volume. .
Je vous en parle très prochainement avec un résumé du premier tome et mon avis sur la saga globale.
.
Et vous ? Avez vous lu «  The Curse » de @marierutkoski ?.

J'ai fini hier soir The Kiss, le dernier tome de la saga de Marie Rutkoski.
Et quel livre!
On m'avait dit que le tome 3 était encore mieux que le premier, et même si je préfère quand même le premier celui-ci était géniale!
Dans le précédent on a quitté Arin alors qu'il venait de créer une alliance avec l'Orient, et Kestrel qui est emmenée dans la toundra.
J'ai eu le coeur serré jusqu'au moment ou Arin à enfin compris ce qui arrivait à Kestrel, lui permettant ainsi de voler à son secours.
Kestrel subit une perte de mémoire dans les mines, à laquelle elle résiste avant de finalement s'abandonner, pour oublier tout ce qu'elle a subit, tout ce qui a rapport avec son père et Arin.
Ainsi elle perd la mémoire, même quand elle quitte cet enfer et ce rituel des drogues. Elle la retrouve petit à petit, et je pense que C'est cette perte de mémoire qui lui permet de s'allier à Arin et aux Dacrans pour battre l'armée de Valorie et de son père.
C'est un soulagement quand enfin Kestrel avoue son amour à Arin, mais il y a aussi le spectre du dieu de la mort qui parle à Arin et on se demande si tout finira bien.
La dénouement est à la fois attendu et inattendu, beau, heureux. Et la fin est superbe, avec la concrétisation de leur chanson, au piano et au chant, et l'espoir d'un avenir entre Kestrel et son père.

C'est pour moi un 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟/5 pour ce livre et cette série, qui est un gros coup de coeur pour moi.

“Você não frequenta leilões não é? A maldição do vencedor é quando você vence as ofertas, mas só pagando um preço exorbitante.” Há muito tempo eu tinha interesse em ler esse livro, eu tinha visto ele no godreads e a sinopse tinha me deixado curiosa e acabei colocando ele na minha lista de leituras, mas ai o tempo foi passando e foi surgindo outros livros e eu acabei não lendo ele.
Quando a editora anunciou o lançamento dele, eu sabia que seria um livro que eu iria adorar e acertei totalmente. A Maldição do Vencedor é um livro cheio de mistérios, traições, intrigas e guerras. Fala de sobre um mundo que sofreu muito com o império e que muitos buscam uma revolução para ter liberdade. Um livro querido. Uma trilogia de tirar o Fôlego.

“She turned to look at him, and he was already looking at her. “I’m going to miss you when I wake up,” she whispered, because she realized that she must have fallen asleep under the sun. Arin was too real for her imagination. He was a dream. “Don’t wake up,” he said.”

let’s talk about underrated books! one of my all time favourite things about bookstagram is all the amazing books i’ve discovered that i would never have read otherwise!
.
.
the winner’s trilogy is SUCH a fantastic series and so so underrated. the covers don’t do it justice at all! it looks like a typical YA fantasy but it’s so much more. fantastic writing, amazing characters and a complex plot! it doesn’t get better than that. i’d highly recommend it!

"The winner's curse is when you come out on top of the bid, but only by paying a steep price."
•••
The Winner's Curse by @marierutkoski published by @bloomsburypublishing
•••
🇫🇷 Une histoire qui se passe dans un univers médiéval greco-romain. La première partie est assez lente car l'intrigue se met en place petit à petit. Politique, stratégie, mensonges et conflits entre valorians et herrani, j'ai beaucoup aimé. J'ai trouvé l'intrigue intéressante. Cela change des romans de fantasy ; ici, pas de magie ou de créatures imaginaires. J'ai aimé les personnages et la relation complexe entre Kestrel et Arin ainsi que l'évolution de celle-ci. Mauvaise combattante, Kestrel brille par son intelligence et son sens de la stratégie. Beaucoup disent que le tome 2 est encore meilleur. J'ai hâte de lire la suite !
•••
🇬🇧 A story that takes place in a medieval greco-roman world. The first part is quiet slow. Politics, strategies, lies and conflicts between valorians and herrani, I loved that. I found the plot interesting. It's different from other fantasy stories : no magic, no imaginary creatures. I liked the characters and the complicated relationship between Kestrel and Arin and the evolution of it. Bad fighter, Kestrel is known for her intelligence and sense of strategy. Most say that the second book is better. Looking forward to reading the next book !
