Top Ten Thursday: Wir sehen unsere Wunschliste wachsen…

Das heutige Thema war nicht leicht für mich. Klar hätte ich genug Bücher gefunden, definitiv mehr über zehn. Allerdings war eher das Problem, herauszufinden, welche Bücher genau. Denn heute haben wir uns eine Frage gestellt:

Welche 10 Bücher sind in den letzten Wochen auf deiner Wunschliste gelandet?

Anhand meiner Neuzugänge-Mengen kann sich vielleicht der ein oder die andere denken, dass auch meine Wunschliste gerne exponentiell steigt. Es sind somit in den letzten Wochen nicht nur 10, sondern gefühlte 100 auf meiner Wunschliste dazugekommen. Meine Entscheidung, welche Bücher ich euch vorstellen möchte, habe ich so einfach wie möglich getroffen: Nach Datum sortieren lassen.

Lustigerweise sind vor allem englische Titel dazugekommen, davon tatsächlich der Großteil wiederum Autoren, die ich lieben gelernt habe und auf deren Übersetzungen ich vergeblich warte…jetzt einfach zu ungeduldig werde. Auch ein paar englische Neuerscheinungen, deren Inhalt einfach mega geil klingt, in denen Märchen eine Rolle spielen.

Wahrscheinlich könnte ich die Titel noch zig mal variieren, da gefühlt stündlich neue Bücher auf die Wunschliste wandern, aber die hier bleiben jetzt einfach und dürfen von euch begutachtet werden 🙂

Fable Adrienne Young

„Fable“ von Adrienne Young (#1 Fable)

Klappentext Band 1

As the daughter of the most powerful trader in the Narrows, the sea is the only home seventeen-year-old Fable has ever known. It’s been four years since the night she watched her mother drown during an unforgiving storm. The next day her father abandoned her on a legendary island filled with thieves and little food. To survive she must keep to herself, learn to trust no one and rely on the unique skills her mother taught her. The only thing that keeps her going is the goal of getting off the island, finding her father and demanding her rightful place beside him and his crew. To do so Fable enlists the help of a young trader named West to get her off the island and across the Narrows to her father.

But her father’s rivalries and the dangers of his trading enterprise have only multiplied since she last saw him and Fable soon finds that West isn’t who he seems. Together, they will have to survive more than the treacherous storms that haunt the Narrows if they’re going to stay alive.

„Songs from the Deep“ von Kelly Powell

Klappentext (Einzelband)

The sea holds many secrets.

Moira Alexander has always been fascinated by the deadly sirens who lurk along the shores of her island town. Even though their haunting songs can lure anyone to a swift and watery grave, she gets as close to them as she can, playing her violin on the edge of the enchanted sea. When a young boy is found dead on the beach, the islanders assume that he’s one of the sirens’ victims. Moira isn’t so sure.

Certain that someone has framed the boy’s death as a siren attack, Moira convinces her childhood friend, the lighthouse keeper Jude Osric, to help her find the real killer, rekindling their friendship in the process. With townspeople itching to hunt the sirens down, and their own secrets threatening to unravel their fragile new alliance, Moira and Jude must race against time to stop the killer before it’s too late—for humans and sirens alike.
