Nézzünk bele a varázsgömbbe - Avagy mit fog olvasni Everglow a közeljövőben #1


Ahoy, kalózok! Kicsit előreszaladtam, és belenéztem a júliusi, idegen nyelvű megjelenésekbe - innen jött az ötlet, hogy ezentúl minden hónapban kiválasztom azokat a könyveket, amik szembejöttek velem, és nagyon megfogtak, akkor is, ha csak egy pillanatra láttam őket. Úgy is vehetitek, hogy ezekben az írásokban én leszek Trelawney prof., belenézek a gömbbe, és leírom, mik lesznek azok a könyvek, amiket biztosan el fogok olvasni, ha nem előbb, akkor utóbb. De hogy semmi ne kavarodjon össze, külön szedtem azokat a megjelenéseket, amik még most jelennek meg, és külön azokat, amik nekem már megvannak a Kindle-ön. Mivel ez az írás nincs időhöz kötve, viszont a megjelenések igen, és könyv annyi nincs a világon, amit ide be tudnék pakolni, úgy gondoltam, kétszer bővítem egy hónapban a listát: egyszer amikor megírom, és egyszer hónap végén. Lássuk tehát, most mikre feni a fogát Everglow!

Ally Carter
Not If I Save You First



Maddie thought she and Logan would be friends forever. But when your dad is a Secret Service agent and your best friend is the president's son, sometimes life has other plans. Before she knows it, Maddie's dad is dragging her to a cabin in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness.

No phone.
No Internet.
And not a single word from Logan.

Maddie tells herself it's okay. After all, she's the most popular girl for twenty miles in any direction. (She’s also the only girl for twenty miles in any direction.) She has wood to cut and weapons to bedazzle. Her life is full. Until Logan shows up six years later...and Maddie wants to kill him. But before that can happen, an assailant appears out of nowhere, knocking Maddie off a cliff and dragging Logan to some unknown fate. Maddie knows she could turn back- and get help. But the weather is turning and the terrain will only get more treacherous, the animals more deadly.

Maddie still really wants to kill Logan.
But she has to save him first.

Szerk. megj. - A lánynak kell megmentenie a srácot, miközben túl kéne élni a vadont is? Hm, első ránézésre szép kis YA-nak nézünk elébe. Fülszöveg alapján kicsit olyannak érzem, mint Benina Mindig és Soha c. könyvét. És heheh, mi az a melléírt szöveg a borítón? "Keresd meg a srácot. Mentsd meg a srácot. Csókold öld Fizessen a srác azért, amit tett veled." Máris imádom.

Jewel E. Ann
Transcend



“In another life, she was my forever.”

An unexpected tragedy leaves Professor Nathaniel Hunt a widower alone with a newborn baby. He hires a nanny. She’s young, but well-qualified, with a simple life, a crazy name obsession, and a boyfriend she met at the grocery store.

Over time, he discovers she knows things about him—things that happened before she was born—like a hidden scar on his head, his favorite pizza, and how he cheated on a high school Spanish test. She speaks familiar words and shares haunting memories that take him back to over two decades earlier when he lost his best friend in a tragic accident. “I’m afraid of what’s going to happen when you realize I’m not her.”  Transcend is a sexy, mind-bending journey that uncovers possibilities, challenges beliefs, and begets the age-old question: is there life after death?

Szerk. megj. - Nagyon régóta tologatom, mindig akad más előtte, de ez a könyv az egyik olyan, amiről tudom látatlanul is, hogy valami hatalmasat, valami hihetetlent fog adni. Végül is úgy kezdődik a fülszöveg, hogy "Egy másik életben, ő volt az én mindenem." - Áucs, a szívem. De nem segít rajtam a borítón levő szőke, kócos pasi sem. 

Lynn Turner
Pas De Deux: A Dance for Two



It's said the artist is born of a damaged soul…

Wilhelmina Allende is a prima ballerina. When tragedy turns her beloved Paris into a gilded cage, she jumps at the chance to work with one of the most prolific choreographers she’s ever seen. But Zack’s style is way out of her comfort zone. So is his teaching method. And his humor. And his everything. He’s a charming little connard. It’s hard not to like him. Merde. What has she gotten herself into?

Zachary Coen’s first musical is opening on Broadway. Much like his life, it’s anything but conventional, so hiring Mina is simply out of the question. She’s too…classical. Too perfect. She’s all wrong for the role. Then he meets her in person and sees her cracks. Her broken pieces. How unique and beautiful each one is. And he can’t help but notice how her edges seem to fit his…perfectly. Just when teaming up seems to be working, the monsters they’ve kept hidden threaten to rip it all apart.

Szerk. megj. - Pa dö dő-nek kell ejteni a címet. :)) Tipik' sérült főszereplők, titkok, zene, balett, broadway, stb., mégis volt valami a fülszövegben és a borítóban, ami anno megfogott. Sejtem - nem sejtem, tudom - mi köré fog épülni a cselekmény, ezt nem lehet nem észrevenni, és husánggal kergessenek meg, ha nem így lesz - mégis ez az egyik könyv, ami borzasztóan érdekel. Ráadásul "interracial romance" címkét kapott, ami ugyanaz, mint Helen Hoang Kiss Quotient c. könyve: a két főszereplő más nemzetiséghez tartozik. Olyan darkos - erotikus - NA feelingje van.

Carrie Aarons
When Stars Burn Out


Stars die in one of two ways. So slowly that each layer burning out feels like agony...or suddenly, exploding into a million pieces before the universe even has a grasp of what is happening.

When Paxton Shaw left Demi Rosen without so much as a goodbye, he stole her shine in both manners. 
Now, eight years later, he’s trying to pull her back into his orbit. The nation’s most beloved football player, a tight end with a seriously tight end, has finally realized Demi is the one who got away. But she’s a different woman than the weak girl who used to come running whenever he called in the middle of the night. Strong, successful, her life’s mission being to grant the wishes of children whose flames have all but been extinguished. And untouchable, as dark and cold as a midnight sky with no moon in sight.

When one special child forces their star-crossed paths to collide, it’s impossible to keep the feelings of their past buried. Paxton had been her Halley’s Comet; the once in a lifetime love that scorched Demi’s heart in the most spectacular of fashions. She promised herself she would never make that mistake again. But, how can she forget the dreams of love she once had, when Paxton wants to make them come true?

Szerk. megj. - látszatra ez is a tipik' YA könyv, dugig klisékkel: a srác hirtelen eltűnik, a lány magára marad, évekkel később teljesen más személyisége lesz, majd a srác újra felbukkan - de akkor már ünnepelt sztárként - és a lány addigi világa összedől, mint a kártyavár. Szerelem, eltemetett titkok, ismerem a menetrendet. Hazudnék, ha azt mondanám, hogy nem a borító kapott el, mert önmagában ez a fülszöveg nekem olyasmit mond, amit már sokszor láttam. De a borító miatt mindenképp a látómezőmben van.

E. K. Blair
Secret Lucidity



This wasn’t supposed to happen. But it did. This wasn’t supposed to be my life. But it was. I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn’t see my way out of. That was, until him.

I never could’ve imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty. The only problem? He was off limits. Forbidden. But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences. My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.

Szerk. megj. - Amilyen furcsának (csúnyának?) találtam a borítót, úgy a fülszöveg azzal a lendülettel fogott meg. Bár Goodreadsen 4,00-es aránnyal megy, ami azt jelenti, hogy fogok benne találni olyat, ami nem tetszik, nem keveset, ettől függetlenül nagyon régóta szeretném elolvasni. Ja, és két szó: tiltott szerelem. 

Francine Rivers
The Masterpiece



A successful LA artist, Roman Velasco appears to have everything he could possibly want―money, women, fame. Only Grace Moore, his reluctant, newly hired personal assistant, knows how little he truly has. The demons of Roman’s past seem to echo through the halls of his empty mansion and out across his breathtaking Topanga Canyon view. But Grace doesn’t know how her boss secretly wrestles with those demons: by tagging buildings as the Bird, a notorious but unidentified graffiti artist―an alter ego that could destroy his career and land him in prison.

Like Roman, Grace is wrestling with ghosts and secrets of her own. After a disastrous marriage threw her life completely off course, she vowed never to let love steal her dreams again. But as she gets to know the enigmatic man behind the reputation, it’s as if the jagged pieces of both of their pasts slowly begin to fit together...until something so unexpected happens that it changes the course of their relationship―and both their lives―forever.

Szerk. megj. - amikor először jött velem szembe a borító, azt hittem, valami komoly mondanivalóval rendelkező, világmegváltó könyvről van szó - és most jöttem rá, hogy nem (feltétlenül.) Ez "csak" egy nagyon jó alapra helyezett, különleges NA egy sikeres alkotóról, aki mindent megkap, amit és akit csak akar, és az újonnan felbérelt asszisztenséről, aki ugyanolyan démonokkal küzd, mint a főnöke, és persze azonnal átlát a szitán - amíg a múlt kirakó darabkái szépen lassan felszínre kerülnek, és valami váratlan meg nem változtatja kettejük életét. Esküszöm, nagyon kíváncsi vagyok.

T. L. Smith
Buried in Lies



His lips told me he knew me. His hands touched like we were old lovers. His eyes held secrets of a past I’d never known. I was lost, you see. Lost as the flowers that grew in the meadow. The devil told me he knew me. But lies had a way of unraveling, even if we didn’t want them to. The devil had a trick, for his love was full of acid. Acid that burned at every touch, every linger, and I let it scorch me to my core. A devil made you sin. And my devil was the worst. But now that devil wanted my last kiss, and it wasn't one I was willing to give. He could take the acid and leave the burn behind. I was keeping my heart even if I died trying.

Szerk. megj. - azóta van a látómezőmben, amióta megláttam a dark címkét, és akkor ehhez jöttek még az abuse, a wtf, a dual pov, mine - mine - hero, not all questions are answered, taboo, és a dark erotika címkék, vagyis: zaklatás, váltott szemszög, wtf, enyém - enyém főhős, nem minden kérdésre kapok választ, tabu, dark, erotikus. Azt a leborult szivarvégit. 

Tijan
Bad Boy Brody



One punch took him from Hollywood’s Golden Boy to Bad Boy Brody. The media didn’t care he was grieving his brother’s death. They descended on him, but to change his reputation, his manager got him a deal. Act in an indie film, one that already had Oscar buzz, and he’d get the movie roles he needed to secure his future. He took the deal. Yet he wasn’t prepared for the real-life people behind the script. He wasn’t prepared for the murder the movie was based on. And he really wasn’t prepared for her, the biggest secret of all. She was wild. She was beautiful. She defied gravity. But was she the leading role that would tame him?

Szerk. megj. - a magyarázat csak annyi erre a könyvre, hogy megláttam, megtetszett, és ugye valahol mindent el kell kezdeni. Sosem olvastam még Tijan-tól, de fülszöveg alapján jó kis NA alkotó lehet. Meg a borító is lenyűgöző, vad, szilaj, szelídítetlen.  

Gia Riley
Wrong Side of Heaven (Broken Wings Duet #1)



I’m trailer trash in the slums of Carillon. Until I met him, the mysterious neighbor who speaks through handwritten notes. He never shows his face, only comes and goes late at night, and I’m drawn to him like a moth to a flame. I shouldn’t want him. I don’t need him. But when I close my eyes, he’s all I see. He’s my addiction. The secret I keep close to my heart. But sometimes things aren’t what they seem, and secrets don’t stay secrets forever. And together, we’re just two lost souls on the wrong side of heaven.

Szerk. megj. - Anno a második rész borítója után csorgott szörnyen a nyálam, úgyhogy gondoltam, miért ne fognám meg a rövidebb végén, és kezdenék bele a teljes sorozatba? Amire most szükségem van, az amúgy is egy kis dark romance - ez a sorozat pedig az iskolapéldája a műfajnak. Nagyon, nagyon szexi, perzselő mind a fülszöveg, mind pedig a két borító, úgyhogy...én nem állok ellent a sorozatnak, de őszintén szólva, nem is akarok. Csak legyen időm, amikor le tudok ülni olvasni. 

Akemi Dawn Bowman
Starfish



Kiko Himura has always had a hard time saying exactly what she’s thinking. With a mother who makes her feel unremarkable and a half-Japanese heritage she doesn’t quite understand, Kiko prefers to keep her head down, certain that once she makes it into her dream art school, Prism, her real life will begin.

But then Kiko doesn’t get into Prism, at the same time her abusive uncle moves back in with her family. So when she receives an invitation from her childhood friend to leave her small town and tour art schools on the west coast, Kiko jumps at the opportunity in spite of the anxieties and fears that attempt to hold her back. And now that she is finally free to be her own person outside the constricting walls of her home life, Kiko learns life-changing truths about herself, her past, and how to be brave.

Szerk. megj. - Mentális betegséggel foglalkozó YA. Nem szoktam hasonlókat olvasni, de ez nagyon megkapott, mióta először láttam a borítót, és a fülszöveget. Meglátjuk, mit tudok belőle kihozni.

Harper Sloan
Perfectly Imperfect



Mirror, mirror...who’s the fairest of them all? I still cringe when I hear that line. A fairy tale that had girls pretending they were the fairest, the most beautiful, and the most entitled. A fairy tale most couldn’t grow out of turned my haunted childhood memories into a living nightmare. Girls who grew up believing that pile of garbage became the meanest of all ‘mean girls.’ And those mean girls were right – it was a line meant for all the beautiful people in the world – and I knew the answer would never be me.

The women with long legs, flat stomachs, and perfect chests. The type of women Kane Masters gravitated toward. Well, that’s definitely not Willow Tate. No. That will never be me. Because I’m completely imperfect. And … I hate myself. I have no idea what Kane could possibly see in someone like me when he could have them.

Szerk. megj. - "Mirror, mirror, on the wall...f*ck you. Love, Everglow." Igen, a borító is sokat nyomott a latban, de a legtöbbet a borítón található kb. 1,5 sor, és a fülszöveg adta hozzá. Attól, hogy te csúnyának, szerencsétlennek találod magad, nem biztos, hogy mások is annak látnak - főleg ha jön valaki, aki az összképet fogja nézni, szerelmes lesz beléd, és miatta fogsz kinyílni, mint a virág.

Kim Liggett
The Unfortunates



When seventeen-year-old senator's son Grant Tavish is involved in a fatal accident, all he wants to do is face the consequences of what he's done, but the consequences never come, even if headlines of "affluenza" do. The truth soon becomes clear: Due to his father's connections, not only will Grant not be held accountable for his actions, he's going to get away with murder.

When a long Tavish tradition approaches, a cave excursion on the Appalachian trail, Grant seizes the opportunity to take justice into his own hands by staging an accident and never coming back. But before he has a chance to enact his plans, the cave system collapses, trapping him miles beneath the surface with four other teens from much less fortunate circumstances. As they struggle to survive, they share their innermost secrets and fears, and just when it seems they might be on track to finding a way out, they realize there's something else down there.

And it's hunting them.

Szerk. megj. - YA horror, értitek?! Függetlenül attól, hogy a Goodreadses aránya most 3,92 - én nem hagyom ki, és remélem, olyan elánnal is fogom olvasni, mint amilyen elánt okozott, amikor először láttam, úgy 2 napja. Vér, ismétlem, az ott vér a srác kezén.

Meg Leder
Letting Go of Gravity



Twins Parker and Charlie are polar opposites. Where Charlie is fearless, Parker is careful. Charlie is confident while Parker aims to please. Charlie is outgoing and outspoken; Parker is introverted and reserved. And of course, there’s the one other major difference: Charlie got leukemia. Parker didn’t.

But now that Charlie is officially in remission, life couldn’t be going better for Parker. She’s landed a prestigious summer internship at the hospital and is headed to Harvard in the fall to study pediatric oncology—which is why the anxiety she’s felt since her Harvard acceptance is so unsettling. And it doesn’t help that her relationship with Charlie has been on the rocks since his diagnosis.

Enter Finn, a boy who’s been leaving strange graffiti messages all over town. Parker can’t stop thinking about those messages, or about Finn, who makes her feel free for the first time: free to doubt, free to make mistakes, and free to confront the truth that Parker has been hiding from for a long time. That she keeps trying to save Charlie, when the person who really needs saving is herself.

Szerk. megj. - Ikrek, mégis ellentétek. Az egyik leukémiás, a másik nem. Az egyiknek meg kell mentenie a másikat - és önmagát is. Visszatartott volna a 3,82-es arány, de most azt mondom, még ez sem érdekel. Nekem ezt el kell olvasnom.

Danielle Banas
The Supervillain and Me (Morriston Superheroes #1)



Never trust a guy in spandex.

In Abby Hamilton’s world, superheroes do more than just stop crime and save cats stuck in trees—they also drink milk straight from the carton and hog the television remote. Abby’s older brother moonlights as the famous Red Comet, but without powers of her own, following in his footsteps has never crossed her mind. That is, until the city’s newest vigilante comes bursting into her life.

After saving Abby from an attempted mugging, Morriston’s fledgling supervillain Iron Phantom convinces her that he’s not as evil as everyone says, and that their city is under a vicious new threat. As Abby follows him deeper into their city’s darkest secrets, she comes to learn that heroes can’t always be trusted, and sometimes it’s the good guys who wear black.

Szerk. megj. - Alapjában véve nem rajongok sem a szuperhősös filmekért, sem a szuperhősös könyvekért, úgy vagyok vele, hogy köszönöm szépen, inkább maradok a magam szuperhőse. De ilyen könyvvel nem mindennap találkozom, sőt, eddig még sose láttam hasonlót. Beszerzem, ha minden pénzem rámegy, akkor is. :))

Devney Perry
Tattered (Lark Cove #1)



Thea Landry has always known her place in modern-day society. It’s somewhere just above the trash can her mother dumped her in as a newborn but below the class where much comes easy. With her tattered shoes and bargain-bin clothes, her life has never been full of glamour.

So when a rich and charismatic man takes interest, she doesn’t fool herself into thinking their encounter is anything more than a one-night stand. Months later, she’s kicking herself for not getting his phone number. Or his last name. She’s given up hope of seeing him ever again. Until one day, years later, Logan Kendrick waltzes into her life once more and turns everything she’s built upside down. This time around, she won’t make the same mistake. She’s going to fight to keep him in her life—not for herself. But for their daughter.

Szerk. megj. - Na igen, Devney Perry az ismeretlen ismerős. Legutóbb rendesen megbőgetett, úgyhogy el tudom képzelni, most mi lesz.

Colleen Hoover
All Your Perfects



Quinn and Graham’s perfect love is threatened by their imperfect marriage. The memories, mistakes, and secrets that they have built up over the years are now tearing them apart. The one thing that could save them might also be the very thing that pushes their marriage beyond the point of repair.

All Your Perfects is a profound novel about a damaged couple whose potential future hinges on promises made in the past. This is a heartbreaking page-turner that asks: Can a resounding love with a perfect beginning survive a lifetime between two imperfect people?

Szerk. megj. - hol a bánatban van már július 17?!

Emma Scott
Bring Down the Stars



I fell for Connor Drake. I didn’t want to; I fought against it, but I fell in love with him anyway. With his words. With his poetry. With him. The gentleness and beauty of his soul that speaks directly to mine. He writes as if he can feel my heart, hear its cadence and compose the exact right lyrics to accompany every beat and flow.

I’m in love with Connor…so why do I feel an inexplicable pull to his best friend, Weston? Grouchy, sullen, brooding Weston Turner, who could cut you down with a look. Fiercely intelligent with a razor sharp wit and acid tongue, he’s the exact opposite of Connor in every way, and yet there’s electricity in the air between us. The thorny barbs Weston wraps around himself can’t keep me away.

But the more time I spend with these men, the more tangled and confused my emotions become. When they both sign up for the Army Reserves during a time of increasing strife in the Middle East, I fear I’ll never unravel my own heart that sometimes feels as if it will tear straight down the middle…for both of them.

Szerk. megj. - ez egy NA, ami Goodreadsen 4,67-es, ismétlem, 4,67-es aránnyal megy. Nem tudok mit mondani, az k**va jó aránynak számít. Úgy látom, lesz itt egy szerelmi háromszög, érzelem, dráma, minden, amit csak el lehet képzelni. A mostani felsorolásból a Bring Down the Stars az egyik, amit mindenképp el fogok olvasni, ezt látom így előre.

Kate Stewart
Someone Else's Ocean



The first time I met Ian Kemp in the sparkling blue waters of St. Thomas, I was six years old and we shared a summer beneath the stars. The second time I met Ian Kemp, he was a shell of the boy I once knew. Turbulent and infuriating, he refused my friendship at every turn. Like me, he was a casualty of life’s cruelty, but we were planets apart. We’d both sought refuge on the island, hoping to find our anchor. Instead, we found each other and managed to reclaim our stars...until we both got swept away.

Szerk. megj. - És itt a másik, 4,88-as (!!!) aránnnyal. Megszólalni se tudok, amióta megláttam a borítót, és a fülszöveget. KELL.

Amo Jones
Flip Trick



I did something I had never done before. I had a one-night stand. Then in true me fashion, I left my phone at his house during my desperate venture to escape. I tried hard to ignore the texts sent to my best friend’s phone...

Amethyst: Sup, these selfies are cute as shit, but your lips looked better wrapped around my...I did NOT text him back. I DID vow to never speak of him, or that night again...

I’m Amethyst Lily Tatum, and up until this point, I’d managed to maintain a fairly low-key life. I’m what you would call a socially unacceptable hot mess. Instead of partying, I’m skating, flipping ollie’s over guys who loved to underestimate me. Then I started college, met a wild girl who I would soon call my best-friend, had my first drunk one-night stand, left my phone at his house, and then, when I finally managed to meet my mom’s new boyfriend, I found out that my one-night stand, was now my new stepbrother.

Szerk. megj. - Amo Jones, Amo Jones, honnan ismerős nekem ez a név...? Ja, megvan. Részben miatta lettem hardcore pszichothriller mániás, úgyhogy a Flip Trick számomra kihagyhatatlan. Különben is, mindennap látom a teaser képeket, és tudom, hogy amikor az első oldalt fogom lapozni, már be leszek csavarodva.

Whitney G.
Forget You, Ethan



Keep your friends close and your enemies closer...

I've hated Rachel Dawson since I was seven years old. My next door neighbor and number one sworn enemy, she's the reason why almost all of our childhood fights ended with me setting something of hers on fire. (Or, vice versa.) She snitched on me when I broke curfew. I snitched on her when she lied about having a boyfriend. We went back and forth like this throughout high school, both vowing to never talk to each other again when we went off to college. But that was until she showed up at my apartment during my senior year and asked me for a temporary place to stay. Until I realized just how much between us had changed, and the line I thought we'd never cross became harder and harder to ignore...

Szerk. megj. - Ellenségekből barátok, majd szerelmesek? Ohohohó, kihagyhatatlan, megismételhetetlen - és bár nem egyedi, de nem hagyom ki. Ráadásul én nem tudom, de a pasit a borítóra valahogy úgy tették oda, hogy csorogjon miatta a...nyálam. Khm.

Claire Contreras
Because You're Mine 



When you grow up in the most feared mafia family, it's easy to identify the kind of men that are bad news. They're the ones with experience. The ones with secrets. The ones that exude sex just by saying your name. From the minute I laid eyes on Lorenzo, I knew he wasn't just bad news. He was the headline. My opinion didn't change on our second meeting. Or our third. But my head and my heart are at war.
He’s too mysterious, too gorgeous, too wild, and now, he wants me. I should run far away. So why am I racing toward him? I’m totally going to get burned. I know it. A man like Lorenzo won’t leave me unscathed. He'll make ashes of me.

Szerk. megj. - persze, rosszéletű, közveszélyes, börtöntöltelék, de neki mégis arra kell menni, amerre a szíve viszi, vagyis egyenesen bele a fickó ágyába. Imádom.
