Lá vou eu tentar participar de mais uma maratona literária! #MaratonaEstrangeira
Agora, a @namanita resolveu fazer uma maratona com livros estrangeiros.
Será do dia 18/08 até o dia 31/08. Escolhi 3 livros em inglês para participar, ainda que seja improvável terminar os três nesse período, gosto de ter opções diferentes. 😉
The Girl in the Letter – Emily Gunnins
1956. When Ivy Jenkins falls pregnant she is sent in disgrace to St Margaret’s, a dark, brooding house for unmarried mothers. Her baby is adopted against her will. Ivy will never leave.
Present day. Samantha Harper is a journalist desperate for a break. When she stumbles on a letter from the past, the contents shock and move her. The letter is from a young mother, begging to be rescued from St Margaret’s. Before it is too late.
Sam is pulled into the tragic story and discovers a spate of unexplained deaths surrounding the woman and her child. With St Margaret’s set for demolition, Sam has only hours to piece together a sixty-year-old mystery before the truth, which lies disturbingly close to home, is lost for ever…
The Princess Diaries – Meg Cabot
One minute Mia’s totally normal. Next minute she’s heir to the throne of Genovia. Well, her dad can lecture her until he’s royal-blue in the face, but no way is Mia going to behave like some posh princess. And they think she’s moving to Genovia? Er, hello?
Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone – J. K. Rowling
HARRY POTTER has never even heard of Hogwarts when the LETTERS start dropping on the doormat at number four, Privet Drive. Addressed in GREEN INK on yellowish parchment with a PURPLE SEAL, they are swiftly confiscated by his GRISLY aunt and uncle.
Then, on Harry’s eleventh birthday, a great beetle-eyed GIANT of a man called RUBEUS HAGRID bursts in with some ASTONISHING news: Harry Potter is a wizard, and he has a place at HOGWARTS SCHOOL OF WITCHCRAFT AND WIZARDRY.
An incredible adventure is about to begin!
