August Neuzugänge #2



Dank einer Medimops Bestellung gibt es heute Neuzugänge, Runde zwei :D


Neben den Büchern sind auch noch ein Haufen Comics bei mir eingezogen (siehe unten).


Erdbeersommer habe ich vom Verlag zur Rezension erhalten. Ich finde die Aufmachung unglaublich süß und bin ganz gespannt auf diese Geschichte. Bisher habe ich nur Gutes gehört. Kennt jemand von euch das Buch schon?

Aufgrund von Muffins & Marzipan habe ich überhaupt bei Medimops bestellt. Das Buch ist sogar neu und ungelesen, was mich positiv überrascht hat. Mir gefiel das Debüt der beiden Autorinnen damals echt gut und ich finde die Idee mit dem Filmset echt cool, zumal Martha Martin ja selber junge Schauspielerin ist. 


Ebenfalls dank Medimops eingezogen: Zwei Tage, zwei Nächte und die Wahrheit über Seifenblasen und Lizzy Carbon. Das neue Buch von Angela Mohr klingt genau nach meinem Geschmack. Leider gab es dieses leider nirgends in einer Buchhandlung in meiner Nähe O.o Dabei ist das Buch erst vor Kurzem erschienen...als ich es dann bei Medimops gesehen habe (für 9€), habe ich es mitgenommen. Und Bücher von Magellan gehen ja sowieso immer :D 


Dann habe ich mir Batgirl of Burnside 1 & 2, sowie Gotham Academy (das wurde mir soooo oft von Books Are True Adventues empfohlen - noch mal danke!) und Adventure Time, Vol. 1 bei Medimops geschnappt. Alles Comics, die ich unbedingt noch lesen wollte :D Mega gefreut habe ich mich auch über Ms Marvel 1 & 2, welche ein Geschenk von Herr Booknerd waren. Ich lege dann demnächst wohl einen Comic-Lese-Tag ein xD

[Books Of Future Past] Entdecke heute die Bücher von morgen


So voll im X-men Style gibt es diese Kategorie auf meinem Blog: Books Of Future Past zeigt euch Bücher, die euch in der Zukunft erwarten :) Da ich viel Englisch lese, wird davon wohl auch immer mehr dabei zu. Außerdem stellen englische Verlage immer so viel Voraus online xD Also - Ring frei!




Miss Lydia Whitfield, heiress to the family fortune, has her future entirely planned out. She will run the family estate until she marries the man of her late father's choosing, and then she will spend the rest of her days as a devoted wife. Confident in those arrangements, Lydia has tasked her young law clerk, Mr. Robert Newton, to begin drawing up the marriage contracts. Everything is going according to plan.

Until Lydia—and Robert along with her—is kidnapped. Someone is after her fortune and won't hesitate to destroy her reputation to get it. With Robert's help, Lydia strives to keep her family's good name intact and expose whoever is behind the devious plot. But as their investigation delves deeper and their affections for each other grow, Lydia starts to wonder whether her carefully planned future is in fact what she truly wants…



Klingt nach einem historisch-witzigem Roman, der gut eine Nacherzählung von Jane Austen sein könnte. Ich habe zwar das andere Buch der Autorin (Love, Lies & Spies) noch nicht gelesen, aber ich bin interessiert und vielleicht bekomme ich das bis 2017 ja hin :D

Erscheint am 11. April 2017 bei Swoon Reads.





This heartbreaking, humorous novel is about three teens whose lives intersect in ways they never expected.  Reggie Mason is all too familiar with "the Three Stages of Depression." She believes she’s unlocked the secret to keeping herself safe: Nobody can hurt you if you never let them in. Reggie encounters an unexpected challenge to her misanthropy: a Twizzler-chomping, indie film-making narcissist named Snake. Snake’s presence, while reassuring, is not exactly stable—especially since his ex-girlfriend is seven months pregnant. As Reggie falls for Snake, she must decide whether it’s time to rewrite the rules that have defined her.



Mir gefällt ja vor allem das Cover total gut. Der Klappentext klingt aber auch echt gut. Nach einer Mischung aus Jennifer Nielson und John Green vielleicht. Dieses Buch wird im Auge behalten! 

Erscheint am 4. April 2017 bei HMH Books.




Only women and girls are allowed in the Red Abbey, a haven from abuse and oppression. Maresi, a thirteen-year-old novice there, arrived in the hunger winter and now lives a happy life in the Abbey, protected by the Mother and reveling in the vast library in the House of Knowledge, her favorite place. Into this idyllic existence comes Jai, a girl with a dark past. She has escaped her home after witnessing the killing of her beloved sister. Soon the dangers of the outside world follow Jai into the sacred space of the Abbey, and Maresi can no longer hide in books and words but must become one who acts. 



Ich fand das Cover und die Beschreibung so außergewöhnlich, dass ich das Buch gleich auf meine Wunschliste packen musste. Irgendwie kann ich die Story nicht wirklich einem Genre zuordnen, aber sie klingt düster und traurig und solche Bücher müssen ja auch mal sein xD

Erscheint am 3. Januar 2017 bei Amulet Books.





All sixteen-year-old Heather MacNair wants is to feel normal, to shed the intense paranoia she’s worn all year like a scratchy sweater. After her compulsion to self-harm came to light, Heather was kept under her doctor’s watchful eye. Her family thinks she’s better—and there’s nothing she wants more than for that to be true. She still can’t believe she’s allowed to spend her summer vacation as she always does: at her aunt’s home in Scotland, where she has lots of happy memories. Far away from all her problems save one: she can’t stop carving the Celtic knot that haunts her dreams into her skin.

Good friends and boys with Scottish accents can cure almost anything…except nightmares. Heather can’t stop dreaming about two sisters from centuries ago, twins Prudence and Primrose, who somehow seem tied to her own life. Their presence lurks just beneath the surface of her consciousness, sending ripples through what should be a peaceful summer. The twins might hold the key to putting Heather’s soul at rest…or they could slice her future deeper than any knife.
 


Dieses Buch wurde vor allem für Fans von Katie Alender angepriesen - also Liebhaber von Geschichten mit Mystery-Touch. Ich finde die Aufmachung und der Klappentext wirklich cool und werde dieses Buch nächstes Jahr auf alle Fälle lesen :D

Erscheint am 14. März 2017 bei Delacorte Press.





Mara has always longed for a normal life in a normal town where no one has the ability to levitate or predict the future. Instead, she roams from place to place, cleaning the tiger cage while her friends perform supernatural feats every night. When the struggling sideshow is miraculously offered the money they need if they set up camp in Caudry, Louisiana, Mara meets local-boy Gabe…and a normal life has never been more appealing.

But before long, performers begin disappearing and bodes are found mauled by an invisible beast. Mara realizes that there’s a sinister presence lurking in the town with its sights set on getting rid of the sideshow freeks. In order to unravel the truth before the attacker kills everyone Mara holds dear, she has seven days to take control of a power she didn’t know she was capable of—one that could change her future forever.



Amanda Hocking konnte mich bislang mit ihren Romanen immer gut und kurzweilig unterhalten und deshalb werde ich wohl ihr neues Buch auch im Auge behalten. 

Erscheint am 3. Januar 2017 bei  St. Martin´s Griffin.





Khosa is Given to the Sea, a girl born to be fed to the water, her flesh preventing a wave like the one that destroyed the Kingdom of Stille in days of old. But before she’s allowed to dance – an uncontrollable twitching of the limbs that will carry her to the shore in a frenzy – she must produce an heir. Yet the thought of human touch sends shudders down her spine that not even the sound of the tide can match.

Vincent is third in line to inherit his throne, royalty in a kingdom where the old linger and the young inherit only boredom. When Khosa arrives without an heir he knows his father will ensure she fulfills her duty, at whatever cost. Torn between protecting the throne he will someday fill, and the girl whose fate is tied to its very existence, Vincent’s loyalty is at odds with his heart.

Dara and Donil are the last of the Indiri, a native race whose dwindling magic grows weaker as the island country fades. Animals cease to bear young, creatures of the sea take to the land, and the Pietra – fierce fighters who destroyed the Indiri a generation before – are now marching from their stony shores for the twin’s adopted homeland, Stille.

Witt leads the Pietra, their army the only family he has ever known. The stone shores harbor a secret, a growing threat that will envelop the entire land – and he will conquer every speck of soil to ensure the survival of his people.


Bei diesem Buch bin ich mir noch etwas unschlüssig. Ich habe das Debüt der Autorin gelesen und nicht so gemocht und hier soll es anscheinend auch noch verschiedene Perspektiven geben. Allerdings finde ich das Cover mega! #shame xD

Erscheint am 11. April bei Putnam.





A teenage misfit named Hawthorn Creely inserts herself in the investigation of missing person Lizzie Lovett, who disappeared mysteriously while camping with her boyfriend. Hawthorn doesn't mean to interfere, but she has a pretty crazy theory about what happened to Lizzie. In order to prove it, she decides to immerse herself in Lizzie's life. That includes taking her job... and her boyfriend. It's a huge risk — but it's just what Hawthorn needs to find her own place in the world.



Über dieses Buch ist noch nicht viel bekannt, aber der Aufhänger klingt ganz spannend! 

Erscheint am 3. Januar 2017 bei Sourcebooks.





When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he's got it made. Sure, it means a lot of sitting around, which isn't easy for a guy with ADHD, but he can't complain, since he gets to spend the period texting all his friends. Then the doctor asks him to track down the troubled freshman who keeps dodging her, and Adam discovers that the boy is Julian--the foster brother he hasn't seen in five years.

Adam is ecstatic to be reunited. At first, Julian seems like the boy he once knew. He's still kind hearted. He still writes stories and loves picture books meant for little kids. But as they spend more time together, Adam realizes that Julian is keeping secrets, like where he hides during the middle of the day, and what's really going on inside his house. Adam is determined to help him, but his involvement could cost both boys their lives.



Ich mag das Cover zwar nicht so gerne, aber dafür den Buchtext umso mehr. Das könnte nach Simon Vs The Homosapiens Agenda vielleicht das nächste LGBT "IT-Buch" werden.

Erscheint am 10. Januar bei Hyperion.
