[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!

Hope knows there's only one thing coming between her and her longtime crush: his girlfriend, Parker. She has to sit on the sidelines and watch as the perfect girl gets the perfect boy...because that's how the universe works, even though it's so completely wrong.

Parker doesn't feel perfect. She knows if everyone knew the truth about her, they'd never be able to get past it. So she keeps quiet. She focuses on making it through the day with her secret safe . . . even as this becomes harder and harder to do. And Hope isn't making it any easier. . . .

In Just Another Girl, Elizabeth Eulberg astutely and affectingly shows us how battle lines get drawn between girls -- and how difficult it then becomes to see or understand the girl standing on the other side of the divide.

Ich finde das Cover zwar nicht so mega, aber von der Autorin habe ich schon etwas gelesen und ich glaube das Buch könnte mir gefallen, WENN es wirklich den etwas anderen Twist hat, wie es im Klappentext scheint :D 

Erscheint am 28. März 2016 bei Scholastic. 

Tom Grendel lives a quiet life—writing in his notebooks, mowing lawns for his elderly neighbors, and pining for Willow, a girl next door who rejects the “manic-pixie-dream” label. But when Willow’s brother, Rex (the bro-iest bro ever to don a jockstrap), starts throwing wild parties, the idyllic senior citizens’ community where they live is transformed into a war zone. Tom is rightfully pissed—his dad is an Iraq vet, and the noise from the parties triggers his PTSD—so he comes up with a plan to end the parties for good. But of course, it’s not that simple.

One retaliation leads to another, and things quickly escalate out of control, driving Tom and Willow apart, even as the parties continue unabated. Add to that an angsty existential crisis born of selectively reading his sister’s Philosophy 101 coursework, a botched break-in at an artisanal pig farm, and ten years of unresolved baggage stemming from his mother’s death…and the question isn’t so much whether Tom Grendel will win the day and get the girl, but whether he’ll survive intact.

Das Buch klingt einfach...anders. Und genau deshalb möchte ich es lesen!

Hier gab es noch nicht so viele Infos zum Inhalt, aber der Aufhänger hat mich 
irgendwie angesprochen - und ich mag das Cover echt sehr gerne!

When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.

In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha — one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice.

Der Klappentext klingt einfach MEGA COOL :D und das Cover dazu...jup, wird gelesen!

Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It s a miserable life, but being a visha kanya a poison maiden is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Hier finde ich das Cover total doof xD Allerdings ist die Thematik vom Buch etwas, das mich immer wieder anzieht. Es gibt zwar schon einige Stories mit diesem Aufhänger "Kuss des Todes" etc. aber vielleicht kann mich ja diese Geschichte dann überzeugen :D

Erscheint am 10. Januar 2017 bei Random House.

Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities.

But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

Hier stimmt für mich alles: Text, Cover, Idee...muss ich lesen :D

Freya was never meant to be queen. Twenty third in line to the throne, she never dreamed of a life in the palace, and would much rather research in her laboratory than participate in the intrigues of court. However, when an extravagant banquet turns deadly, and the king and his courtiers are poisoned, Freya suddenly finds herself on the throne.

Freya may have survived the massacre, but she is far from safe. The nobles don’t respect her, her councillors want to control her, and with the mystery of who killed the king still unsolved, Freya knows that a single mistake could cost her the kingdom – and her life.

Freya is determined to survive, and that means uncovering the murderers herself. Until then, she can’t trust anyone. Not her advisors. Not the king’s dashing and enigmatic illegitimate son. Not even her own father, who always wanted the best for her, but also wanted more power for himself.

Die Autorin hat bisher ja einige Märchen-Retellings geschrieben - bisher habe ich noch keins davon gelesen, aber vielleicht versuche ich es mal mit ihrem neuen. Das spricht mich bisher von allen am meisten an.

Erscheint am 21. Februar 2017 bei Harper Teen. 

Half-sisters Isabelle and Aurora are polar opposites: Isabelle is the king’s headstrong illegitimate daughter, whose sight was tithed by faeries; Aurora, beautiful and sheltered, was tithed her sense of touch and voice on the same day. Despite their differences, the sisters have always been extremely close.

And then everything changes, with a single drop of Aurora’s blood, a Faerie Queen who is preparing for war, a strange and enchanting dream realm—and a sleep so deep it cannot be broken.

Spindle Fire is a tour de force fantasy set in the dwindling, deliciously corrupt world of the fae, and featuring two truly unforgettable heroines.

Dieses Buch habe ich über Goodreads entdeckt und es hat mich sofort 
angesprochen! So ein tolles Cover und der Fantasy-Aspekt klingt auch toll!

Erscheint am 11. April 2017.

  1. Hey :)
    Ich muss ja ehrlich sagen, dass ich froh war, als ich den Post zu Ende gelesen habe :D Von den 8 Büchern sind alle bis auf "Grendel's Guide to Love and War" auf meine Wunschliste gewandert. Das Buch hört sich zwar auch toll an, aber der Funke ist nicht, wie bei den anderen Büchern, so ganz übergesprungen.
    Ich bin jetzt schon richtig gespannt auf alle Bücher :)

    Liebe Grüße


Dankeschön, dass du so lieb bist und Feedback, deine Meinung oder Anregungen hinterlässt! :D
