Hi everyone! Today I am opening the new Vick's Secret World's page: best sellers' page! Well, good to remember that the information I post here is from The New York Times' site. The diference is that I am gonna tell you what the books talk about, so you can know if you will read them or not. Some of the books of this list I've read in Brazil, so I can say a little bit about what I thought about them. Hope you guys like it and leave your comment down there!
Let's go. These are the Top 5 of this week:
1 - Firefight, by Brandon Sanderson
From the #1 "New York Times" bestselling author of Words of Radiance coauthor of Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series, and creator of the internationally bestselling Mistborn Trilogy, Brandon Sanderson presents the second book in the Reckoners series: Firefight, the sequel to the #1 bestseller Steelheart. They told David it was impossible--that even the Reckoners had never killed a High Epic. Yet, Steelheart - invincible, immortal, unconquerable - is dead. And he died by David's hand. Eliminating Steelheart was supposed to make life more simple. Instead, it only made David realize he has questions. Big ones. And there's no one in Newcago who can give him the answers he needs. Babylon Restored, the old borough of Manhattan, has possibilities, though. Ruled by the mysterious High Epic, Regalia, David is sure Babylon Restored will lead him to what he needs to find. And while entering another city oppressed by a High Epic despot is a gamble, David's willing to risk it. Because killing Steelheart left a hole in David's heart. A hole where his thirst for vengeance once lived. Somehow, he filled that hole with another Epic -Firefight. And he's willing to go on a quest darker, and more dangerous even, than the fight against Steelheart to find her, and to get his answers.
2 - The Fault In Our Stars, by John Green
Diagnosed with Stage IV thyroid cancer at 12, Hazel was prepared to die until, at 14, a medical miracleshrunk the tumours in her lungs... for now. Two years post-miracle, sixteen-year-old Hazel is post-everything else, too post-high school, post-friends and post-normalcy. And even though she could live for a long time (whatever that means) Hazel lives tethered to an oxygen tank, the tumours tenuously kept at bay with a constant chemical assault. Enter Augustus Waters. A match made at cancer kid support group, Augustus is gorgeous, in remission, and shockingly to her, interested in Hazel. Being with Augustus is both an unexpected destination and a long-needed journey, pushing Hazel to re-examine how sickness and health, life and death, will define her and the legacy that everyone leaves behind.
About this book, I got an opinion. I read it the year before last and saw the film last year. They're both beautiful and I cried a lot. Their history is very human and it is impossible not to think as lucky most of us are to have a healthy life. Those teenagers had a little time to enjoy together, but as the famous sentence says: some infinities are bigger than others... Read it!
3 - If I Stay, by Gayle Forman
A critically acclaimed novel that will change the way you look at life, love, and family. In the blink of an eye everything changes. Seventeen year-old Mia has no memory of the accident; she can only recall what happened afterwards, watching her own damaged body being taken from the wreck. Little by little she struggles to put together the pieces- to figure out what she has lost, what she has left, and the very difficult choice she must make. Heart wrenchingly beautiful, Mia's story will stay with you for a long, long time. It is true. When I read this book, I felt an energy so strong... I'm sure you'll like it if you take it a try. Mia's life will touch your heart and make you think better about the things around you. I haven't seen the film yet but I will do it soon. When I do it I'll tell you what I thought about this.
4 - Where She Went, by Gayle Forman
It's been three years since the devastating accident... three years since Mia walked out of Adam's life forever. Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Juilliard's rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia's home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future - and each other. Told from Adam's point of view in the spare, lyrical prose that defined If I Stay, Where She Went explores the devastation of grief, the promise of new hope, and the flame of rekindled romance. Well, I really want to read this book but I will do this only 'cause I have read the first one, If I Stay. They're both an only one story. So if you wanna read Where She Went I think it is better reading If I Stay first :)
5 - Paper Towns, by John Green
Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back into his life–dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge–he follows. After their all-nighter ends and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues–and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees of the girl he thought he knew. Paper Towns was published by Intrínseca in Brazil but I haven't had the oportunity to read it yet. Friends who read this book said it is wonderful so if you're crazy to take a look, same here!
