Neuzugänge # 7 [englische Bücher]

Vor ein paar Wochen sind vier englische Bücher bei mir eingezogen, die ich mir gegönnt habe, nachdem ich eine stressige Klausurenphase in der Uni hatte.

"Bright Young Things" von Anna Godbersen:
The year is 1929. New York is ruled by the Bright Young Things: flappers and socialites seeking thrills and chasing dreams in the anything-goes era of the Roaring Twenties.
Letty Larkspur and Cordelia Grey escaped their small Midwestern town for New York's glittering metropolis. All Letty wants is to see her name in lights, but she quickly discovers Manhattan is filled with pretty girls who will do anything to be a star. . . .
Das Buch ist der erste Band einer Trilogie und hat mich hauptsächlich wegen dem Cover angesprochen. Aber auch dass die Geschichte in New York in den zwanziger Jahren spielt, finde ich sehr interessant.
"Ugly Love" von Colleen Hoover:
When Tate Collins meets airline pilot Miles Archer, she doesn't think it's love at first sight. They wouldn’t even go so far as to consider themselves friends. The only thing Tate and Miles have in common is an undeniable mutual attraction. Once their desires are out in the open, they realize they have the perfect set-up. He doesn’t want love, she doesn’t have time for love, so that just leaves the sex. Their arrangement could be surprisingly seamless, as long as Tate can stick to the only two rules Miles has for her.

Mein erstes Buch von Colleen Hoover und das Buch wird wohl auch verfilmt.
Das Buch ist aus dem Young Adult - Genre.
"The Perfectionists" von Sara Shepard:
Ava, Caitlin, Mackenzie, Julie, and Parker are all driven to be perfect—no matter the cost. At first the girls think they have nothing in common, until they discover that they all hate the same person: handsome womanizer Nolan Hotchkiss, who's done things to hurt each of them. They come up with the perfect plan to murder Nolan—jokingly, of course. They'd never actually go through with it. But when Nolan turns up dead in the exact way they'd discussed, the girls suddenly become prime suspects in his murder. Only, they didn't do it. So who did? Unless they find the real killer, and soon, their perfect lives will come crashing down around them.
Die neue Reihe von Sara Shepard musste ich natürlich sofort haben. Die Beschreibung erinnert zwar ein wenig an Pretty Little Liars, aber das stört mich erstmal nicht. Bevor ich das Buch anfange, werde ich aber noch die Lying Game Reihe beenden.
"The Wrath & the Dawn" von Renée Ahdieh:
Every dawn brings horror to a different family in a land ruled by a killer. Khalid, the eighteen-year-old Caliph of Khorasan, takes a new bride each night only to have her executed at sunrise. So it is a suspicious surprise when sixteen-year-old Shahrzad volunteers to marry Khalid. But she does so with a clever plan to stay alive and exact revenge on the Caliph for the murder of her best friend and countless other girls. Shazi’s wit and will, indeed, get her through to the dawn that no others have seen, but with a catch . . . she’s falling in love with the very boy who killed her dearest friend.

She discovers that the murderous boy-king is not all that he seems and neither are the deaths of so many girls. Shazi is determined to uncover the reason for the murders and to break the cycle once and for all.

Eine Geschichte angelehnt an Tausend und eine Nacht, wenn das mal nicht interessant klingt! Auch das Cover ist einfach wunderschön und ich hoffe der Inhalt genauso!
Kenn ihr die Bücher und habt ihr vielleicht sogar schon eines oder mehrere davon gelesen?

  1. Hey Christina,

    Vielen Dank für deinen Kommentar auf meiner Seite!

    Ugly Love von Colleen Hoover klingt gut. Ich habe bisher ein Buch von ihr gelesen, was ich auch richtig gut fand!

    Liebste Grüße,
