Buchpost #22

Klar. Ich wollte nichts mehr kaufen. Aber es gab auf Facebook eine Diskussion über den Titel vom 2. Band von "Die Bestimmung", welcher "Die Bestimmung - Tödliche Wahrheit" lauten wird. Da die meisten den Namen ziemlich blöd finden, hab ich spontan beschlossen, die deutsche Übersetzung zu boykottieren. :D
Da bei amazon immer noch die Aktion läuft, bei der man 3 englische Bücher für 15€ bekommt, musste ich da natürlich zuschlagen. ;)

Under the never sky (Veronica Rossi)
Since she'd been on the outside, she'd survived an aether storm, she's had a knife held to her throat, and she'd seen men murdered.
This was worse.
Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland - known as The Death Shop - are slim. If the cannibals don't get her, the violent energy storms will. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He's wild - a savage - and her only hope of staying alive. 
A hunter for his tribe in a merciless landscape, Perry views Aria as sheltered and fragile - everything he would expect from a Dweller. But he needs Aria's help too; she alone holds the key to his redemption. Opposites in nearly every way, Aria and Perry must come together to survive. Their unlikely alliance forges a bond that will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Before I fall (Lauren Oliver)
Maybe you can affort to wait. Maybe for you there's a tomorrow. Maybe for you there's one thousand tomorrows, or three thousand, or then, so much time you can bathe in it, roll around in it, let it slide like coins through your fingers. So much time you can waste it.
But for some of us there's only today. And the truth ist, you never really know.


Divergent (Veronica Rossi)
In Beatrice Prior's dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five fractions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue - Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite  (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision ist between staying with her family and being who she really is - she can't have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are - and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she's chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she's kept hidden from everyone because she's been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves... or it might destroy her.


Insurgent (Veronica Rossi)
One Choice can transform you - or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves  and herself - while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love.
Tris' initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; insteadm the day ended with unspeakable horros. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable - and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decision but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

  1. Wow das sind mal schöne Covers. Von Englischen Bücher lasse ich mal jetzt noch die Finger davon! Habe noch die restlichen 3 Twilight Bücher auf Englisch. Beim ersten bekam ich starke Kopfschmerzen beim lesen. Aber verstehen konnte ich alles!
