In The Present by Johanna Lindsey, We have a delightful Christmas story of the Malory family. Now in this book, the family is gathering at Jason Malory's home, to celebrate. But just because its a special holiday, doesn't mean problems don't arise in the family. James's wife George, isn't speaking to him. Anthony's wife Roslynn isn't too happy with her husband either. Jason is still trying to convince his mistress to marry him with little s

Είναι κάποιες μέρες που πραγματικά δεν έχεις κουράγιο να σηκωθείς από τον καναπέ. Το μοναδικό πράγμα που θέλεις να κάνεις, είναι ν' αράξεις, να χαλαρώσεις και να διαβάσεις κάτι που θα κάνει την ώρα σου να περάσει ξεκούραστα κι ευχάριστα. Σε αυτή την κατηγορία βιβλίων ανήκουν και τα βιβλία της Johanna Lindsey και πιο συγκεκριμένα, αυτά που υπάγονται στη σειρά "Malory-Anderson Family", η οποία μετράει αισίως δώδεκα τίτλους μέχρι σήμερα.

Almost didn't make it past the dust jacket, but decided it couldn't be as bad as the jacket hinted at. I was wrong. I don't do female MC's who have a baby of the love if their life and refuse to marry him, even after he divorced his wife for her. She rather be his mistress and his housekeep the rest of her life. I can't even. The reason didn't hold water either.

If you like historical romances where the characters think and talk like they are our contemporaries, with most likely spicy scenes, th

Το «Κρυφό Ημερολόγιο» είναι το έκτο βιβλίο της περίφημης σειράς Malory-Anderson Family, το οποίο κυκλοφόρησε από τις εκδόσεις Elxis, μετά την έκδοση του ένατου βιβλίου τη σειράς.
Προσωπικά δε συμφωνώ με την διαφοροποίηση στη σειρά έκδοσης βιβλίων που αποτελούν συνέχειες –έστω και αυτοτελείς. Κατανοώ πως ο εκδοτικό οίκος θέλησε να εκδώσει αρχές Νοεμβρίου και όχι το προηγούμενο καλοκαίρι το «Κρυφό Ημερολόγιο» καθώς η ιστορία είναι χρονικά τοποθετημένη την εποχή των Χριστουγέννων, ωστόσο οφείλουμε

Buku terakhir kisah keluarga Malory sesuai harapan, the best from buku2 yang lain.
Dimulai beberapa hari sebelum natal, keluarga Malory kumpul di Haverston.
Buku ini menceritakan 3 bagian :
1.Reuni keluarga
2.Kisah Jason dan Molly
3.Asal usul keluarga Malory

Reuni keluarga seperti biasa di mulai dengan ribut2 antara James dan Anthony, yang berakhir dengan lebam2 setelahnya karena Georgina marah2 ke James anak2nya di bawa ke sasana tinju (walaupun sebetulnya bukan itu alasan George marah2).... [image e

This book was certainly a holiday treat, though I'm not reading it in the holiday it's meant for XD

I liked how it showed the Mallory clan couple of years after the last book, still together, and still as entertaining as ever.

I liked how the story came to be with all the Mallorys gathering and then all are intrigued with The Present, I liked how it was infinitely connected to Jason's story, and how he finally is getting what he deserves, his happily ever after.

I liked the story of their grandmoth

Είχα ξεχάσει πόσο μου αρέσουν τα βιβλία της οικογένειας Μάλορι.
Οι χαρακτήρες ειναι ένας κι ένας,δεν ξέρεις ποιος ειναι καλύτερος απτον άλλο.
Μην με βάλετε να διαλέξω,γιατί δεν θα είναι ένας.:P
Μου άρεσε και αυτό το βιβλίο,όπου μας μιλούσε για την ιστορία του προπάππου Μάλορι και την Αναστασία που μας την είχε ξανά αναφέρει στα προηγούμενα βιβλία,ως την γιαγια που νόμιζαν οτι ειναι τσιγγάνα.
Εδω λοιπόν μαθαίνουμε αν ήταν ή όχι...
Άν και ήταν μικρούλι(μονο 200σελίδες) ,ήταν ευχάριστο ανάγνωσμα!!

I love this story with all the Malory's. They get together for Christmas. They receive a book as a Christmas Present and it explains their family history, which was very interesting, If you read the Malory series this is a must read. You get to revisit all of the previous couples and their young children in the book. It makes you feel good when you finish the Present.

I want more...

More of James and Georgiana please. Nice story but I want to see more of Georgina and James they are the couple i really adore from this series then Warren and Amy right behind them. Thank goodness JH gives a bit more of them but still my craving yet to be satisfied. Overall a 3 1/2;star read for me.

Buku ke6 seri Malory-Anderson Family

Buku satu ini cukup unik. Aku jarang membaca cerita berbingkai dan buku ini adalah salah satunya.


Setelah 5 tahun berlalu dari kehebohan skandal perceraian dan skandal Derek dan Kelsey, Jason yg selama waktu itu telah sering meyakinkan Molly untuk menerima lamaran Jason. Namun Molly tetap kukuh pada pendiriannya dan menolak lamaran itu karena statusnya yg memalukan dan Molly meyakinkan Jason kalau dirinya tetap bahagia dengan keadaannya yg hanya seba

I'm not usually a fan of novellas but this one was quite sweet. I loved revisiting the whole lot of the Malory family. I also loved delving into the story of the mysterious grandmother that bestowed her black hair, blue eyes and magical tendencies to some of her descendants. I wished Christopher and Anastasia's story was a little bit longer. I understand it was to connect Jason and Molly's love story and Christopher and Anastasia's together and be a short read for the longtime fans of the Malory ...more

Malory Series pertama yg gw baca..
Bisa di bilang ini nvl 'keroyokan' keluarga Malory.
Semua couple di nvl2 sebelumnya plus anak2 mereka kumpul di nvl ini utk merayakan natal...
Gara2 ni nvl gw jd penasaran ama ni series yg konon series JL yg paling terkenal...
Hasilnya gw memang jd demennn bgt ama ni Malory Family Saga.
Loved it so damn much!!!

Yg jd pusat cerita menurut gw Jason - Molly.
dan jg buyut mereka Anastasia - Christopher...


Malory ROCKS!!!

Christmas with the Malory and Anderson family. It is partially Jason's book but really it is a book about the gypsy grand mother and great grand mother.

I believe the present book by Christopher and Anastasia should have been written in a second person voice instead of a third person.

English version kumpul2 keluarga Malory saat natal di Haverston..banyak menceritakan kisah asal usul mereka yg ternyata Gypsy. Menceritakan tentang Molly dan Jason, juga Nicolai. Keluarga kumpul semua, tetap kocak dan seru terutama James dan Anthony yg selalu rame...bacaan asik di akhir minggu....

A 4.5 really.

This book is like reading a soap opera, episode by episode. You can't put it down, until you're done reading the whole book. It has mystery, love, romance, comedy, despair, hope, it's complete entertainment!

Από αδιάφορο έως χλιαρό-να μην πω παιδαριώδες-μα ευτυχώς ήταν ολιγοσέλιδο....
Μοιάζει σα να γράφτηκε κατά παραγγελία, προκειμένου ένα βιβλίο στο σίκουελ των Μάλορι να κυκλοφορήσει εκεί κοντά στα Χριστούγεννα για καθαρά εμπορικούς λόγους....

Aku suka banget sama endingnya. Ya ampun, kalo ada pertanyaan apa yang menjadi pertimbanganku untuk memberikan bintang pada novel bacaanku, jawabannya adalah ending!
Entah kenapa masalah ending ini sangat berpengaruh pada penilaianku untuk novel yang kubaca. Well, kupikir novel yang bagus adalah novel yang membuatku sangat gatal untuk membahasnya sesaat setelah selesai membacanya, yang itu artinya setelah aku menyentuh ending.
