[Wishlist] Neuentdeckungen und ein neues Buch von Markus Zusak #4

Mai 22, 2011

Nachdem nicht nur mein Blog, sondern auch meine Bücher vernachlässigt habe – und es immer noch tue :/ – dachte ich mir, dass es mal wieder Zeit wird was zu posten. Dann habe ich mich für einen neuen WISHLIST-Post entschieden und hier sind meine neusten Neuentdeckungen, die auf meiner Wunschliste gelandet sind!

Hört sich nach einer schönen Geschichte an.
Und das Cover – großartig!

Marissa Rogers never wanted to be an alpha; beta suited her just fine. Taking charge without taking credit had always paid off: vaulting her to senior editor at a glossy magazine; keeping the peace with her critical, weight-obsessed mother; and enjoying the benefits of being best friends with gorgeous, charismatic, absolutely alpha Julia Ferrar.
And then Julia gets hit by a cab. She survives with minor obvious injuries, but brain damage steals her memory and alters her personality, possibly forever. Suddenly, Marissa is thrown into the role of alpha friend. As Julia struggles to regain her memory- dredging up issues Marissa would rather forget, including the fact that Julia asked her to abandon the love of her life ten years ago- Marissa’s own equilibrium is shaken.
With the help of a dozen girls, she reluctantly agrees to coach in an after-school running program. There, Marissa uncovers her inner confidence and finds the courage to reexamine her past and take control of her future.

Was ein großartiges Cover?!
Ich liebe es! Der Inhalt ist auch gut.
Deswegen sofort auf die Wunschliste! c:

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father’s mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. Together they follow legends and local lore, trying to keep up with the murderous dead—keeping pesky things like the future and friends at bay. When they arrive in a new town in search of a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas doesn’t expect anything outside of the ordinary: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he’s never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
But she, for whatever reason, spares Cas’s life.

Filmrechte schon verkauft und es soll eine wirklich großartige Dystopie werden.
Hört sich auch genauso an und das Cover passt zu dem Genre. Freue mich riesig!

The United States is gone, along with its flooded coasts. North America’s two warring nations, the western Republic and the eastern Colonies, have reached a breaking point. In the midst of this broken continent and dark new world are two teenagers who will go down in history….
Born into the slums of Los Angeles, fifteen-year old Day is the country’s most wanted criminal. A mysterious boy with no recorded image or fingerprints. A boy who should no longer exist. A boy who watches over his family until one evening, when the plague patrols mark his family’s door with an X–the sign of plague infection. A death sentence for any family too poor to afford the antidote. Desperate, Day has no choice; he must steal it.
Born to an elite family in Los Angeles‘ wealthy Ruby sector, fifteen-year old June is the Republic’s most promising prodigy. A superintelligent girl destined for great things in the country’s highest military circles. Obedient, passionate, and committed to her country–until the day her brother Metias is murdered while on patrol during a break-in at the plague hospital.
Only one person could be responsible. Day. And now it’s June’s mission to hunt him down. The truth they’ll uncover will become legend.


‚Victorian Age‘ & Zombies.
Hört sich spannend an. Vor allem weil ich noch kein Zombiebuch gelesen habe und mir mal eins zulegen wollte c: Da bietet sich dieses doch an!

As far as romantic pairings go in the year 2195, you don’t get much more unlikely than an upper-class schoolgirl and a poor miner from enemy tribes. Filter in the fact that he’s a zombie, and you’re definitely talking about star-crossed love. Dearly, Departed is a cyber-Victorian/steampunk romance that takes place in the shadow of a new ice age. Nora Dearly, a mouthy teenage girl and apparent orphan, leaves school for Christmas – only to be dragged into the night by the living dead. Luckily for her, though, the good ones got to her first. From her reanimated rescuers she learns not only that zombies are roaming the countryside, but that her father is one – and that he’s in terrible trouble. She also meets Captain Bram Griswold, a noble, strong, and rather sweet undead boy for whom she starts to fall.
Meanwhile, her best friend, Pamela Roe, is just trying to carry on with life as best she can in the wake of Nora’s disappearance – when she ends up killing an evil zombie in self-defense. Pam is galvanized into action, and ends up leading a group of survivors as the city of New London is thronged by the ravenous dead. Upon hearing of Pamela’s plight, Nora and Bram set out to rescue her friends, find her missing father, and maybe just save what’s left of the world.

Ich liebe den Zirkus!
Sagt das nicht alles?! c:

Rebel. Champion gymnast. Intergalactic traveler?
Trix can deal with being an orphan charity case at a snotty boarding school. She can hold her own when everyone else tells her not to dream big dreams. She can even fight back against the mysterious stranger in a silver mask who tries to steal the meteorite her parents trusted her to protect.
But her life is about to change forever. The Circus Galacticus has come to town, bringing acts to amaze, delight, and terrify. And now the dazzling but enigmatic young Ringmaster has offered Trix the chance to be a part of it.
Soon Trix discovers an entire universe full of deadly enemies and potential friends, not to mention space leeches, ancient alien artifacts, and exploding chocolate desserts. And she just might unravel the secrets of her own past–if she can survive long enough.

Was ein Cover!
Nur schade das es so wenig von der Inhaltsangabe gibt :/
Ich will unbedingt mehr wissen!

Bean (née Pearl) and Henry, misfits and best friends, have the strangest mothers in town. Henry’s mom Sally never leaves the house. Bean’s mom Lexie, if she is home, is likely nursing a hangover or venting to her friend Claire about Bean’s beloved grandfather Gus, the third member of their sunny household.
Gus’s death unleashes a host of family secrets that brings them all together. And they threaten to change everything—including Bean’s relationship with Henry, her first friend, and who also might turn out to be her first love.

The Bridge of Clay

1. September 2011

It’s about a boy.
His name is Clay.
He’s building a bridge.
And he wants that bridge to be something truly great and miraculous.

Das ist das einzige, was über das neue Buch von MARKUS ZUSAK auf Goodreads gepostet ist. Außer das es 592 Seiten hat (also wieder ein ziemlicher Schinken) und dieses Jahr noch rauskommt. Ich freue mich riesig, denn ich find ZUSAKS Schreibstil großartig und kann es kaum erwarten was Neues von ihm zu lesen! c:

    Ich bin schon riesig gespannt auf „The Bridge of Clay“. Zusaks‘ Schreibstil ist großartig! Ich habe schon vor einiger Zeit davon auf seiner Website gelesen, dass er an einem neuen Werk arbeitet und wovon es handelt etc. Jedoch stand nie ein genaues Erscheinungsdatum fest bzw. es wurde nur gemunkelt wann es rauskommen könnte. Danke für die Info! Ich hoffe nur, dass es dann jetzt auch wirklich im September erscheint…

    Liebe Grüße,

    Gefällt dir „Die Traumnovelle“ von Schnitzler nicht?

    • booksloverin Says:

      Ich habs schon lange hinter mir xD
      Kam nur nicht dazu es rauszunehmen^^
      Also… ich hab es jetzt nicht zuende gelesen, weil die Klausur so schnell kam und ich es nicht geschafft habe, aber ich will das noch beenden, weil ich es nicht schlimm fand c:

  3. Sarah Says:

    „Legend“ klingt gut 🙂 Ich bin ja noch immer etwas hin- und hergerissen vom Trend Dystopie. Auf der einen Seite habe ich schon immer gerne Dystopien gelesen und bin deshalb total froh, dass momentan so viel Nachschub kommt… auf der anderen Seite kann einem dieses „Masse statt Klasse“ auch einiges verderben. Hoffen wir, dass „Legend“ zu den guten Büchern gehört 🙂

  4. crini Says:

    Hach, ich finds immer wieder toll, wenn ich deutsche Blogs entdecke, deren Besitzer auch gerne englische Bücher lesen =)

    Obowhl es auch erschreckend ist, dass es immer noch soo viele tolle Blogs gibt, die ich nie gesehen hab ^^

    Die meisten von den Bücher hab ich auch auf der Wunschliste stehen =)
