(Neu im Regal) Und schon wieder das englischsprachige Volk!

Fast zeitgleich bekam ich Post aus Großbritannien und aus London. Beide kamen vom gleichen Verlag und zwar Simon&Schuster.
Dazu muss ich sagen, dass Simon&Schuster US mir einmal sagte, sie schicken keine Bücher nach Deutschland wegen der hohen Portokosten und da ihr amerikanischer Bloggerstamm groß genug ist. Vollkommenes Verständnis meinerseits.
Nun habe ich aber ab und an Kontakt zu Simon & Schuster UK durch einen Vertreter auf der Buchmesse bekommen und ganz selten mal etwas angefragt. Warum? Naja, irgendwie gefallen mir die amerikanischen Hardcover meist besser *duckundweg*.
Aber der Kontakt ist sehr nett und nun habe ich dann doch mal wieder was angefragt. Zwei der Bücher waren aber US-Bücher, was ich nicht bemerkte, da sie auf der UK Website erschienen.
Ich hatte mich dann auch dafür entschuldigt, nachdem sie meinte, die kann mir nur das Britische schicken.

Zwei Tage später dann die Überraschung. Eine weitere Email von ihr: "Sonja, ich habe mich darum gekümmert, dass dir die beiden Bücher zugeschickt werden."
Nachdem ich das gelesen hatte war ich ein sehr sehr glücklicher Blogger und ein paar Tage später waren die amerikanischen ARCs da. Beide sind Young Adult Thriller und werden Mitte August erscheinen.

"Afterworlds" ist das neue Buch von Scott Westerfeld und klingt sehr interessant, weshalb ich es unbedingt lesen möchte:

Darcy Patel has put college and everything else on hold to publish her teen novel, Afterworlds. Arriving in New York with no apartment or friends she wonders whether she's made the right decision until she falls in with a crowd of other seasoned and fledgling writers who take her under their wings…
Told in alternating chapters is Darcy's novel, a suspenseful thriller about Lizzie, a teen who slips into the 'Afterworld' to survive a terrorist attack. 
But the Afterworld is a place between the living and the dead and as Lizzie drifts between our world and that of the Afterworld, she discovers that many unsolved - and terrifying - stories need to be reconciled. And when a new threat resurfaces, Lizzie learns her special gifts may not be enough to protect those she loves and cares about most.

Die ARCs, die erst am 18. August 2015 erscheinen werden, sind beide sehr düster und ich hoffe ja sehr auf Pageturner!

Shackled:
Sixteen-year-old Pelly has a master plan. After years of therapy, medication, and even a stint in a mental hospital, she’s finally ready to re-enter the world of the living. Pelly has been suffering from severe panic attacks ever since her best friend, Tara, disappeared from a mall six years ago.
And her plan seems to be working, until an unkempt girl accompanied by an older man walks into the coffee shop where she works. Pelly thinks she’s seen a ghost, until the girl mouths “help me” on the way out, and Pelly knows she’s just seen Tara.
Too shocked to do anything, Pelly helplessly watches Tara slip away again as she steels herself against a renewed spiral of crippling anxiety. But rather than being overcome by anxiety, Pelly feels more energized than she has in years. Determined to track down enough evidence to force the police to reopen Tara’s file, Pelly’s master plan takes a turn for the dangerous.

Pelly decides she cannot be shackled by her past—and the anxiety, fear, and grief that comes with it—any longer if she wants to save Tara. But in seeking answers through whatever means necessary, she’ll come face-to-face with true evil. And not all the shackles are in her head…

The Creeping:
Twelve years ago Stella and Jeanie vanished while picking strawberries. Stella returned minutes later, with no memory of what happened. Jeanie was never seen or heard from again.
Now Stella is seventeen, and she’s over it. She’s the lucky one who survived, and sure, the case is still cloaked in mystery—and it’s her small town’s ugly legacy—but Stella is focused on the coming summer. She’s got a great best friend, a hookup with an irresistibly crooked smile, and two months of beach days stretching out before her.
Then along comes a corpse, a little girl who washes up in an ancient cemetery after a mudslide, and who has red hair just like Jeanie did. Suddenly memories of that haunting day begin to return, and when Stella discovers that other red-headed girls have gone missing as well, she begins to suspect that something sinister is at work.

And before the summer ends, Stella will learn the hard way that if you hunt for monsters, you will find them.
