[Sub] In My Mailbox #28

Juli 26, 2011

Gehostet von The Story Siren.

Da bin ich wieder … da ich solange nicht mehr gepostet habe und mich die liebe Anne auch mal darauf angesprochen hat, dachte ich mir, dass es mal wieder höchste Zeit wird aufzukreuzen :/ Tut mir echt Leid, aber ich habe den Blog in den letzten Monaten einfach vergessen und hatte auch nicht die Zeit, genauso wenig wie fürs Lesen, denn ich habe seit dem März sage und schreibe null Bücher gelesen :/Naja. Aber ich arbeite schon fleißig an einem HarryPotter-Spezial, weil ich mit meinen Freundinnen auf dem HP-Marathon war. Dies ist erstmal ein kleiner Lückenfüller, bevor es wieder richtig weitergeht c:
Also diese Bücher sind in den letzten Monaten bei mir eingezogen:

Sind sehr wenige, wenn man überlegt, dass mein letzter Sub-Post in Mai war xD Aber gut für den Sub ;D Zwei Bücher hab ich dabei noch vom Mängeltischchen c: DIE GABE DER MAGIE habe ich dabei gebunden für nur drei Euro bekommen! DER KUSS DER RUSSALKA ebenfalls Mängelexemplar und von NINA BLAZON ♥ Und WENN ICH BLEIBE wollte ich schon so lange lesen c:

Advertisements

Soeben entdeckt: Das Cover zum ersten Band der neuen Season zu DAS TAL. Der erste Band wird somit DER FLUCH heißen und laut Arena 280 Seiten haben. Unter dem Cover hab ich auch die Kurzbeschreibung veröffentlicht, für die, die den letzten Band schon gelesen haben.

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
Das Tal ist zur Ruhe gekommen. So scheint es zumindest. Nur Robert ist der Einzige, der der Wahrheit über den versteckten Ort mitten in den Rocky Mountains ein Stück nähergekommen ist. Doch während er verzweifelt versucht, seine Erkenntnisse zu überprüfen, gerät Rose in große Gefahr. Wer ist der Unbekannte, der ständig in ihr Zimmer im College einbricht? Und was hat das mit Roses Vergangenheit zu tun? Während das sonst so ruhige Mädchen mehr und mehr außer sich gerät, entdeckt Robert das Unfassbare…

Ich find das Cover cool! Es passt gut zur ersten Season, hebt sich dennoch davon ab! Also mir gefällt es! c:

Ich bin eine Woche im Urlaub, deswegen wird es etwas still hier werden (… auch wenn es gerade sowieso etwas stiller geworden ist). Dennoch wollte ich Bescheid geben, dass ich auf Kommentare oder Sonstiges höchstwahrscheinlich nicht antworten werde. Wir sehen uns also spätestens in einer Woche wieder, Bloggerwelt! c:

Ich weiß, ich bin spät dran. Aber ich hab hier in Januar schon den Placeholder-Cover zu CLOCKWORK PRINCE veröffentlicht. Jetzt hat Cassandra Clare endlich das richtige Cover präsentiert und es ist großartig! Es passt toll zu dem ersten Cover CLOCKWORK ANGEL.
Zu dem Cover hat Cassandra Clare auch noch die Kapitelnamen veröffentlicht mit kleinen Erklärungen bzw. Zitate aus dem Buch! Ich bin gespannt!

Die Kapitelnamen würde ich nur lesen, wenn ich CLOCKWORK ANGEL bereits gelesen habe! Sonst könnten Spoiler vorhanden sein!

Prologue: The Outcast Dead
Will visits the Cross Bones Graveyard in London.

Chapter One: The Council Chamber
Pretty literal — the Council meets to discuss whether Charlotte is fit to run the Institute; we see a bit more of the Lightwoods, not to mention the Waylands and some other familiar families.

Chapter Two: Reparations
“Mr. Bane has been awaiting your arrival, sir,” said the footman, and stepped aside to let Will enter.

Chapter Three: Unjustifiable Death
The term, under the Accords, for a Shadowhunter killing a Downworlder without provocation.

“This was the first time she had been alone with Will in weeks.”

Chapter Four: A Journey
Tessa, Will and Jem leave the Institute and in fact, London entirely.
“Gabriel Lightwood strode across the room to meet them. He really was quite tall, Tessa thought, craning her neck to look up at him. As a tall girl herself, she didn’t often find herself bending her head back to look up at men.”

Chapter Five: Shades of the Past
This one is a pun that will probably only make sense upon actual reading. Althpugh one of the themes of the book is how the past affects the present.

Chapter Six: In Silence Sealed
Again the theme is hidden secrets. The title comes from a Charlotte Bronte poem. “In secret kept, in silence sealed.” Tessa begins to uncover the secrets of her own origins.

Chapter Seven: I had to redact the title of this chapter. It’s a spoiler.
“When Will truly wants something,” said Jem, quietly, “when he feels something — he can break your heart.”

Chapter Eight: The Purposes of Wrath
The title here comes from Thomas de Quncey’s (yes de Quincey!) Confessions of an English Opium-Eater. The paragraph is about addiction, and both the pleasures and the pains of opium, and the chapter is not dissimilar. Also, we meet Ragnor Fell.

Chapter Nine: Fierce Midnight
This chapter ends the night begun in the previous chapter. And has some pretty hot kissing. Titled after a Swinburne poem.

Chapter Ten: The Virtue of Angels
The virtue of angels is that they cannot deteriorate; their flaw is that they cannot improve. Man’s flaw is that he can deteriorate; and his virtue is that he can improve. —The Talmud
Someone rather unexpected hits Gabriel — who, really, was asking for it.

Chapter Eleven: Wild Unrest
This chapter title comes from the poem “City of Dreadful Night” by James Thompson. It’s really about taking on the suffering of someone you love. Will wanders about London at night. “He had reached Fleet Street. Temple Bar was visible through the mist in the distance” — Temple Bar is the structure Jem is standing in front of, on the cover of the book.

Chapter Twelve: The Ball
This is somewhat self-explanatory. There is a masquerade ball. And a balcony. And Magnus.

Chapter Thirteen: The Mortal Sword
We finally see the Mortal Sword put to its actual use: extracting the truth from reluctant Shadowhunters. And it is not pretty.

Chapter Fourteen: The Silent City
“Ah,” said a voice from the doorway, “having your annual ‘everyone thinks Will is a lunatic’ meeting, are you?”

Chapter Fifteen: Thousands More
From a poem by Charlotte Mew: There are thousands more; you do not miss a rose.
“Will has always been the brighter burning star, the one to catch attention — but Jem is a steady flame, unwavering and honest. He could make you happy.”

Chapter Sixteen: Mortal Rage
In which there are automatons and vengeance and explosions. The title comes from Shakespeare: “And brass eternal slave to mortal rage.”

Chapter Seventeen: In Dreams
There is the famous “in dreams begin responsibilities” but this title is actually from a poem by Matthew Arnold. The chapter from which this deleted scene was taken.

Chapter Eighteen: Until I Die
This chapter title has really freaked people out. So I will be nice and say that it is from a poem by Christopher Brennan (no relation to Sarah Rees):
Then seek not, sweet, the “If” and “Why” I love you now until I die.

Chapter Nineteen: If Treason Doth Prosper
Betrayals and misunderstandings come thick and fast. And Magnus may have a new boyfriend. The title is from a poem attributed to Sir John Harrington:
“Treason doth never prosper: what’s the reason? Why if it prosper, none dare call it treason.”

Chapter Twenty: The Last Dream
This is the chapter that made me cry! I rarely cry so I felt good about that. The chapter title comes from A Tale of Two Cities.

Chapter Twenty-One: Coals of Fire
I guess if you’re paying a lot of attention you’ll recognize this as part of something Jace quotes in City of Fallen Angels. Endings, beginnings, new characters, and, I promise, not too bad of a cliffhanger.

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!

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
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:

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
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!

KURZBESCHREIBUNG

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.

‚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!

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
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:

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
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!

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
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.

MARKUS ZUSAK
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:

Aber seht selbst!

BEASTLY von ALEX FLINN

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

A KISS IN TIME von ALEX FLINN

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
Talia fell under a spell … Jack broke the curse.
I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchating, so hypnotic …
I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.
I awakened in the same place but in another time – to a stranger’s soft kiss.
I couldn’t help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn’t know this would happen.
Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!
Now I’m stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of jewels … The good news: My parents will freak!
Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who truns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all – even time?

RED RIDING HOOD von SARAH BLAKLEY-CARTWRIGHT

After her sister’s violent death, Valerie’s world begins to spiral out of control. For generations, the werewolf has been kept at bay with a monthly sacrifice. But no one is safe. When an expert wolf hunter arrives, the villagers learn that the creature lives among them – it could be anyone in town.
It soon becomes clear that Valerie is the only one who can hear the voice of creature. The Wolf says she must surrender herself before the Blood Moon wanes . . . or everyone she loves will die.

ANGELS BLOOD von NALINI SINGH

KURZBESCHREIBUNG
Vampire hunter Elena Deveraux is hired by the dangerously beautiful Archangel Raphael. But this time, it’s not a wayward vamp she has to track. It’s an archangel gone bad.
The job will put Elena in the midst of a killing spree like no other—and pull her to the razor’s edge of passion. Even if the hunt doesn’t destroy her, succumbing to Raphael’s seductive touch just may. For when archangels play, mortals break.
