So, mein Kauf-Nix-Jahr hat nun angefangen und ich habe echt keine Bücher gekauft. Wie das geht? Ja das frage ich mich auch manchmal...
Zu allererst einmal ist endlich "The Fault in our Stars" von John Green angekommen. Das Buch stammt von einem Geburtstagsgutschein und wurde zusammen mit einem anderen Buch bestellt, welches aber noch nicht da ist. Ich habe "Looking for Alaska" geliebt und befürchte jetzt schon, dass das Buch wieder furchtbar traurig und dennoch unglaublich schön sein wird.
"I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, then all at once."Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.
"Endless" von Amanda Gray habe ich bei NetGalley auf der "Read-Now"-Seite runtergeldaden. Das Rezensionsexemplar ist ohne Bewerbung erhältlich und Cover und Klappentext haben mich neugierig gemacht.
Jenny Kramer knows she isn’t normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them. When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble onto an old music box with instructions for "mesmerization" and discover they may have more in common than they thought—like a past life! Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her dreams who has now appeared next door, was there, too. Jenny is forced to acknowledge that Nikolai has traveled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back. While Ben, Jenny, and Nikolai race against the clock—and the Order—Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life and beyond death.
"Blood Guilt" von Marie Treanor ist ebenfalls von NetGalley und für Blogger frei verfügbar. Es hat unglaublich viele positive Stimmen weshalb ich es dann auch unbedingt rezensieren wollte!
Mihaela, a fearless vampire hunter secretly haunted by loneliness and childhood tragedy, finds it difficult to adjust to the new world order where vampires are not always the bad guys. She's taking a much needed vacation in Scotland when she sees a little boy being chased through the streets of Edinburgh. Rescuing him brings bigger problems - two vampires from her past: Gavril, who killed her family; and the reclusive and troubled Maximilian, gifted Renaissance artist and one-time overlord of the most powerful undead community in the world. Maximilian once saved her life and now needs that favor returned.The earth moves for Mihaela in more ways than one. From Scotland to Budapest and Malta, she races against time to prevent a disastrous, vampire-induced earthquake and save an innocent yet powerful child – all while fighting a dreadful attraction to Maximilian, her only ally, whom she can’t afford to trust. For Maximilian, the hunter becomes a symbol of renewed existence, as he struggles to accept his past and rediscovers his appetite for blood and sex - and maybe even happiness.
Last but not Least habe ich auch schon meine erste Zusage bei NetGalleys und zwar für "Branded" von Abi Ketner und Missy Kalicicki. Das wird auch das nächste EBook sein, was ich lesen werde.
Über 300 Rezensionen auf Amazon die entweder vernichtend oder begeistert waren. Wo ich wohl hingehören werde?
Fifty years ago the Commander came into power and murdered all who opposed him. In his warped mind, the seven deadly sins were the downfall of society. He created the Hole where sinners are branded according to their sins and might survive a few years. At best.Now LUST wraps around my neck like blue fingers strangling me. I’ve been accused of a crime I didn’t commit and now the Hole is my new home.
Oh wei, beihnahe hätteich es vergessen! Ein Buch gibt es noch und das war sogar kostenlos auf Amazon erhältlich. Zum anfixen sozusagen. "Darkhouse" von Karina Halle wurde mir von einer Brieffreundin (Ja so etwas gibt es noch, wenn auch neumodisch per EMail *lach*) empfohlen.
With all the vampire, werewolf and faerie books out there, it's easy to become numb to all things supernatural. The antidote? Darkhouse introduces two real and unforgettable characters, Perry Palomino & Dex Foray, amateur ghost hunters who are "attractive, relatable and oddly heroic," "flawed but loveable," "slightly crazy" and just the most endearing pair to ever tackle the paranormal... just don't call them normal. Darkhouse is a thrilling and sexy new take on concepts like Supernatural and The X-Files, bringing a breath of fresh air to a genre that has been inundated with the dead.~~~"There's always been something a bit off about Perry Palomino. Though she's been dealing with a quarter-life crisis and post-college syndrome like any other twentysomething, she's still not what you would call "ordinary." For one thing, there's her past which she likes to pretend never happened, and then there's the fact that she sees ghosts. Luckily for her, that all comes in handy when she stumbles across Dex Foray, an eccentric producer for an upcoming webcast on ghost hunters. Even though the show's budget is non-existent and Dex himself is a maddening enigma, Perry is instantly drawn into a world that both threatens her life and seduces her with a sense of importance. Her uncle's haunted lighthouse provides the perfect catalyst and backdrop for a horrific mystery that unravels the threads of Perry's fragile sanity and causes her to fall for a man, who, like the most dangerous of ghosts, may not be all that he seems."
