In my mailbox...

Nach längerer Zeit habe ich mal wieder bei The Book Depository bestellt. Eigentlich war ich auf der Suche nach einem ganz anderen Buch, hatte dann aber plötzlich diese beiden im Warenkorb:

Kasie West "Pivot Point"
Addison Coleman's life is one big "What if?" As a Searcher, whenever Addie is faced with a choice, she can look into the future and see both outcomes. It's the ultimate insurance plan against disaster. Or so she thought. When Addie's parents ambush her with the news of their divorce, she has to pick who she wants to live with—her father, who is leaving the paranormal compound to live among the "Norms," or her mother, who is staying in the life Addie has always known. Addie loves her life just as it is, so her answer should be easy. One Search six weeks into the future proves it's not.
In one potential future, Addie is adjusting to life outside the Compound as the new girl in a Norm high school where she meets Trevor, a cute, sensitive artist who understands her. In the other path, Addie is being pursued by the hottest guy in school—but she never wanted to be a quarterback's girlfriend. When Addie's father is asked to consult on a murder in the Compound, she's unwittingly drawn into a dangerous game that threatens everything she holds dear. With love and loss in both lives, it all comes down to which reality she's willing to live through . . . and who she can't live without.

April Lindner "Catherine"
Catherine is tired of struggling musicians befriending her just so they can get a gig at her Dad's famous Manhattan club, The Underground. Then she meets mysterious Hence, an unbelievably passionate and talented musician on the brink of success. As their relationship grows, both are swept away in a fiery romance. But when their love is tested by a cruel whim of fate, will pride keep them apart?
Chelsea has always believed that her mom died of a sudden illness, until she finds a letter her dad has kept from her for years -- a letter from her mom, Catherine, who didn't die: She disappeared. Driven by unanswered questions, Chelsea sets out to look for her -- starting with the return address on the letter: The Underground.
Told in two voices, twenty years apart, Catherine interweaves a timeless forbidden romance with a compelling modern mystery.

"Pivot Point" ist spontan in meine Tasche als Zuglektüre gewandert. Momentan lese ich ansonsten "Schwarzer Schmetterling", was zwar total spannend ist - trotzdem komme ich damit irgendwie nicht so recht voran. Und ich habe "City of Bones" noch einmal angefangen. Ich möchte die Reihe eigentlich gern noch einmal komplett lesen, nicht zuletzt, weil ja der Kinofilm direkt bevor steht, auch wenn ich noch gar nicht weiß, ob ich mir den wirklich ansehen werde. Irgendwie bin ich zu enttäuscht vom Cast, und ich befürchte, dass mir das meine persönlichen Vorstellungen einzelner Charaktere vermiest, wenn ich dann im Film jemanden vorgesetzt bekomme, der meinem inneren Kopfkino so gar nicht entspricht...

  1. Na vielen Dank für das weitere Befüllen meines Wunschzettels :-)
    Ich wollte die Bücher von Cassandra Clare auch vorher nochmal lesen, aber das schaffe ich wohl nicht. Ich war schon froh, dass ich "Mein fahler Freund" einen Tag vor meinem Kinobesuch geschafft hatte :-)
