In my mailbox...

Gehostet von The Story Siren

So, ich habe dann auch mal The Book Depository ausprobiert und muss sagen: ich bin begeistert. Die Bücher, die mich interessier(t)en, sind dort fast alle billiger als bei allen möglichen Anbietern hier in Deutschland, die Versandzeit find ich okay und die Qualität weitestgehend auch. Gut, nur bei meiner Ausgabe von „Matched“ ist leider eine Ecke des Buchcovers ziemlich umgeknickt – das ärgert mich L
Aber ich hab auch nicht schlecht geguckt, als ich feststellte, dass ich mir bei TBD auch deutsche Titel bestellen kann, ebenfalls für weniger Geld im Vergleich zum deutschen Preis, der ja hierzulande leider dem Buchpreisbindungsgesetz unterliegt.
Apropos „Matched“: ja, ich bin dann wohl auch auf den Cassia & Ky- Zug aufgesprungen und habe mir das Original zugelegt. Man kann ja fast nicht anders, wenn man überall von diesem Buch liest und so viele so begeistert davon sind. Also mach ich auch mit :)

Ally Condie: „Matched“
On her seventeenth birthday, Cassia meets her Match. Society dictates he is her perfect partner for life. Except he's not. In Cassia's society, Officials decide who people love. How many children they have. Where they work. When they die. But, as Cassia finds herself falling in love with another boy, she is determined to make some choices of her own. And that's when her whole world begins to unravel...

Brenna Yovanoff: „The replacement“
Mackie Doyle is not one of us. Though he lives in the small town of Gentry, he comes from a world of tunnels and black murky water, a world of living dead girls ruled by a little tattooed princess. He is a Replacement left in the crib of a human baby sixteen years ago. Now, because of fatal allergies to iron, blood, and consecrated ground, Mackie is fighting to survive in the human world. Mackie would give anything to live among us, to practice on his bass or spend time with his crush, Tate. But when Tates baby sister goes missing, Mackie is drawn irrevocably into the underworld of Gentry, known as Mayhem. He must face the dark creatures of the Slag Heaps and find his rightful place, in our world, or theirs.

Julia Quinn: “Ten things I love about you”
Ten Things You Should Know About This Book
1. Sebastian Grey is a devilishly handsome rogue with a secret.
2. Annabel Winslow's family voted her The Winslow Most Likely to Speak Her Mind and The Winslow Most Likely to Fall Asleep in Church.
3. Sebastian's uncle is the Earl of Newbury, and if he dies without siring an heir, Sebastian inherits everything.
4. Lord Newbury detests Sebastian and will stop at nothing to prevent this from happening.
5. Lord Newbury has decided that Annabel is the answer to all of his problems.
6. Annabel does not want to marry Lord Newbury, especially when she finds out he once romanced her grandmother.
7 is shocking, 8 is delicious, and 9 is downright wicked, all of which lead the way to
10. Happily. Ever. After.

Letztes Jahr habe ich bereits den ersten Teil der Touch Novels ("Deadly little secrets") von Laurie Faria Stolarz gelesen, daher wurde es mal höchste Zeit, sich den zweiten Teil zu besorgen:

Laurie Faria Stolarz: “Deadly little lies (A touch novel)”
Last fall, sixteen-year-old Camelia fell for Ben, the mysterious new boy at school who turned out to have a very mysterious gift--pyschometry, the ability to sense the future through touch.  But just as Camelia and Ben's romance began to heat up, he abruptly left town. Brokenhearted, Camelia has spent the last few months studying everything she can about psychometry, and experiencing her own strange brushes with premonition. Camelia wonders if Ben's abilities have somehow rubbed off on her. Can the power of psychometry be transferred? Even once Ben returns to school, Camelia can't get close enough to share her secret with him. Despite the romantic tension between them, Ben remains aloof, avoiding contact. Then when a series of eerie notes echoes the  threats of last semester--and Ben  keeps his distance--Camelia makes the painful decision to let go and move on.  Adam, the hot new guy at work, seems good for her in ways Ben wasn't.  Adam is easygoing, and seems to really care about her.
