So voll im X-men Style gibt es jetzt eine neue 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!
One hundred years after falling asleep, Princess Aurora wakes up to the kiss of a handsome prince and a broken kingdom that has been dreaming of her return. All the books say that she should be living happily ever after. But as Aurora understands all too well, the truth is nothing like the fairy tale. Her family is long dead. Her "true love" is a kind stranger. And her whole life has been planned out by political foes while she slept. As Aurora struggles to make sense of her new world, she begins to fear that the curse has left its mark on her, a fiery and dangerous thing that might be as wicked as the witch who once ensnared her. With her wedding day drawing near, Aurora must make the ultimate decision on how to save her kingdom: marry the prince or run.
Quick Thought: Ich finde das Buch klingt einfach klasse! Märchen meets Fantasy ist doch immer eine gute Sache...und dann auch noch Dornröschen :)

Bryn is sent in to help stop him, but will she lose her heart in the process?
Quick Thought: Von Amanda Hocking muss man Fan sein oder eben nicht, aber ich fand ihre Bücher bisher ziemlich unterhaltsam...und Leute, DAS COVER!!! Außerdem handelt es sich hierbei um eine Art Spin-Off der Tryll Trilogie :)

Quick Thought: Kill Me Softly war 2011 eines meiner Lieblingsbücher und endlich gibt es einen Nachfolger! Dieses mal geht es um Schneewittchen. Das wird guuuuut! :)
A hot debut trilogy and a riveting story of survival, courage, and romance in a future where creating a master civilization is the only thing prized, no matter the method. After the Omega (the end of the end), 16 year old guys known as LTs discover their overseers are raising them not to be soldiers (lieutenants) as promised, but to be sold as bait because of their Less Than status and hunted for sport. They escape and join forces with a girls’ camp, the Sisters, who have been imprisoned and experimented on for the "good of the Republic," by a government eager to use twins in their dark research. In their plight for freedom, these heroes must find the best in themselves to fight against the worst in their enemies.
Quick Thought: Wenn das Buch nur annähernd so gut ist, wie der Klappentext klingt, dann muss man es einfach lieben. Action, bitte...schaut nach einem heißen Debüt aus!
