Oh my God, what did just happen? Is that his father? What's the point with that creepy doll? Oh, no he didn't... But why?... Can someone point me in the direction of nearest music store - I need to find Leonard Cohen! Is she crazy? I can't believe this girl... And that's her best friend? Some friend... I want to live in her house. That poem on the first page - I'll learn it by heart! God, how can she tuch him after... I don't know what I would do if I was her.

I couldn't sleep all night...

Antonia Michaelis
“Just a tiny little pain,
Three days of heavy rain,
Three days of sunlight,
Everything will be alright,
Just a tiny little pain.”
Antonia Michaelis, The Storyteller

Antonia Michaelis
“My child, I know you're not a child
But I still see you running wild
Between those flowering trees.
Your sparkling dreams, your silver laugh
Your wishes to the stars above
Are just my memories.

And in your eyes the ocean
And in your eyes the sea
The waters frozen over
With your longing to be free.

Yesterday you'd awoken
To a world incredibly old.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

You had to kill this child, I know.
To break the arrows and the bow
To shed your skin and change.
The trees are flowering no more
There's blood upon the tiles floor
This place is dark and strange.

I see you standing in the storm
Holding the curse of youth
Each of you with your story
Each of you with your truth.

Some words will never be spoken
Some stories will never be told.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

I didn't say the world was good.
I hoped by now you understood
Why I could never lie.
I didn't promise you a thing.
Don't ask my wintervoice for spring
Just spread your wings and fly.

Though in the hidden garden
Down by the green green lane
The plant of love grows next to
The tree of hate and pain.

So take my tears as a token.
They'll keep you warm in the cold.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.

You've lived too long among us
To leave without a trace
You've lived too short to understand
A thing about this place.

Some of you just sit there smoking
And some are already sold.
This is the age you are broken
Or turned into gold.
This is the age you are broken or turned into gold.”
Antonia Michaelis, The Storyteller

Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Knjiga je savrsenstvo. Ne bih je uopste mijenjala.

Plašim se da ne znam ovu skraćenicu...

Tanychy, obavezno, nećeš se pokajati.

p.s. na žalost ne idem večeras - pojavile su se neke nenadane obaveze, pa neću stići ni da spavam, a kamoli šta drugo.


Tanja @Glass, HEA - happily ever after


Tanja (Tanychy) St. Delphi Ej nisi isla? Ja isla!! :) Evo sad sam dosla kuci! :)

Dobar je film, nije me razocaraoo! Malo sam se bojala na pocetku jer nisu sve odmah odavali pa tako ovi koji nisu citali knjigu su malo bili zbunjeni ali kasnije je bolje! :)

Isla sam sa drugom i drugaricom, oni nisu citali knjige sad su ostali odusevljeni i procitace knjige! :) Vjerujem da je to redateljima i bila namjera :D

ivana18 U pravu si Tanja :D
HEA je Happily ever after, tj. sretan završetak.

Onda, ima li HEA?

Odgovor možeš sakriti pod spoilere, u slučaju druge cure ne žele znati odgovor na to (iako su one večinom sve pročitale knjigu).


Glass @Ivana (view spoiler)

@Tanychy, e, super! Čula sam i ja dosta pozitivnih komentara od raje koja je već gledala.


Tanja (Tanychy) St. Delphi Dobar je film, mislim kako sam ja mislila da ce da bude, dobro je. :)

Zemira (Kylo Ren fangirl) Warner Ivana,definitivno trebaš pročiati ovu knjigu. Odlična je.

ivana18 @Zemi: Da, da, hoću :D Vidim da ste vi oduševljene sa njom. Zvuči nekako magično.


Scarlet Ja je čekam već danima! Sad sam presretna i jedva čekam da je dobijem.

@Glass, i ja sam Leonarda Cohena skidala nakon I Kissed a Zombie, and I Liked It ;)
