Op mijn ‘to be read’ lijstje staan…. #1

Hi allemaal!

Het leuke aan Goodreads vind ik dat je oneindig veel boeken aan je ‘to be read’ lijstje kunt toevoegen. Hieraan zitten natuurlijk ook nadelen, want ik weet zeker dat ik nooit alle boeken die ik wil lezen ook daadwerkelijk ga lezen. Ik heb mijn lijstje dus een beetje beperkt tot een aantal boeken die ik nog wil kopen. Ik heb hier niet de boeken bijgevoegd die ik al heb, maar nog niet heb gelezen. Dit zijn dus echt de boeken die ik wil kopen.

  1. The Knife of Never Letting Go – Patrick Ness
    Onlangs heb ik A Monster Calls gelezen en ik vond het echt een fantastisch boek, dus ik wilde graag meer lezen van Patrick Ness. Ik heb erg goede verhalen over dit boek gehoord.

    Prentisstown isn’t like other towns. Everyone can hear everyone else’s thoughts in an overwhelming, never-ending stream of Noise. Just a month away from the birthday that will make him a man, Todd and his dog, Manchee — whose thoughts Todd can hear too, whether he wants to or not — stumble upon an area of complete silence. They find that in a town where privacy is impossible, something terrible has been hidden — a secret so awful that Todd and Manchee must run for their lives.

  2. Ragdoll – Daniel Cole
    Dit boek is onlangs in het Nederlands verschenen en ik wil dit boek dan ook graag in het Nederlands lezen. Dit is een typsiche thriller en daarom lijkt mij dit boek ook zo leuk.

    A body is discovered with the dismembered parts of six victims stitched together like a puppet, nicknamed by the press as the ‘ragdoll’.Assigned to the shocking case are Detective William ‘Wolf’ Fawkes, recently reinstated to the London Met, and his former partner Detective Emily Baxter.The ‘Ragdoll Killer’ taunts the police by releasing a list of names to the media, and the dates on which he intends to murder them.

  3. The Valiant – Lesley Livingston
    Dit boek zag ik voorbij komen op een Young-Adult website, alleen dan in het Nederlands. Ik ben eerlijk gezegd niet zo’n fan van vertaalde boeken uit het Engels, dus ik denk dat ik hem graag in het Engels wil lezen, het verhaal zelf spreekt mij namelijk wel erg aan.

    Lost to history, the story of the female gladiator has never been told. Until now.Fallon is the daughter of a proud Celtic king and the younger sister of the legendary warrior Sorcha. When Fallon was just a child, Sorcha was killed while defending their home from the armies of Julius Caesar.On the eve of her seventeenth birthday, Fallon is excited to follow in her sister’s footsteps and earn her place in her father’s war band. She never gets the chance.Fallon is captured by ruthless brigands who sell her to an elite training school for female gladiators owned by none other than Julius Caesar himself. In a cruel twist of fate, the man who destroyed Fallon s family might be her only hope of survival. Now, Fallon must overcome vicious rivalries, deadly fights in and out of the arena, and perhaps the most dangerous threat of all: her irresistible feelings for Cai, a young Roman soldier and her sworn enemy.

  4. History is All You Left Me – Adam Silvera
    Sinds ik de Engelse booktubers hierover hoor wil ik hem zo graag lezen! Dit klinkt als een perfect YA boek.

    When Griffin’s first love and ex-boyfriend, Theo, dies in a drowning accident, his universe implodes. Even though Theo had moved to California for college and started seeing Jackson, Griffin never doubted Theo would come back to him when the time was right. But now, the future he’s been imagining for himself has gone far off course.To make things worse, the only person who truly understands his heartache is Jackson. But no matter how much they open up to each other, Griffin’s downward spiral continues. He’s losing himself in his obsessive compulsions and destructive choices, and the secrets he’s been keeping are tearing him apart.If Griffin is ever to rebuild his future, he must first confront his history, every last heartbreaking piece in the puzzle of his life.

  5. Landline – Rainbow Rowell
    Dit is een ietwat ouder boek, maar ik heb met veel plezier Fangirl, Eleanor and Park en Attachments gelezen, dus ik ben ook zeer benieuwd naar dit boek. Dit boek is gerricht op een iets ouder publiek.

    Georgie McCool knows her marriage is in trouble; it has been in trouble for a long time. She still loves her husband, Neal, and Neal still loves her, deeply — but that almost seems beside the point now.Maybe that was always beside the point.Two days before they’re supposed to visit Neal’s family in Omaha for Christmas, Georgie tells Neal that she can’t go. She’s a TV writer, and something’s come up on her show; she has to stay in Los Angeles. She knows that Neal will be upset with her — Neal is always a little upset with Georgie — but she doesn’t expect him to pack up the kids and go home without her.When her husband and the kids leave for the airport, Georgie wonders if she’s finally done it. If she’s ruined everything.That night, Georgie discovers a way to communicate with Neal in the past. It’s not time travel, not exactly, but she feels like she’s been given an opportunity to fix her marriage before it starts…Is that what she’s supposed to do?Or would Georgie and Neal be better off if their marriage never happened?

  6. Paper Princess – Erin Watt
    Dit is een boek dat ik niet zo snel zou uitkiezen als ik in de boekenwinkel zou staan, maar toch lijkt het mij een leuk boek. Ik heb dit boek al meerdere malen bij verschillende mensen voorbij zien komen en iedereen is er wel enthousiast over.

    From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.These Royals will ruin you…Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone. Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.He might be right.Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

  7. Into the Water – Paula Hawkins
    Paula Hawkins is bekend geworden met haar debuut A Girl on the Train of in het Nederlands Het meisje in de trein. Ik vond dat een erg goed boek, dus ik ben erg benieuwd naar dit boek.

    A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.

  8. The Art of Fielding – Chad Harbach
    Dit boek lijkt me gewoon heel erg intrigerend, het verhaal spreekt me aan en de cover vind ik ook erg mooi.

    At Westish College, a small school on the shore of Lake Michigan, baseball star Henry Skrimshander seems destined for big league stardom. But when a routine throw goes disastrously off course, the fates of five people are upended.Henry’s fight against self-doubt threatens to ruin his future. College president Guert Affenlight, a longtime bachelor, has fallen unexpectedly and helplessly in love. Owen Dunne, Henry’s gay roommate and teammate, becomes caught up in a dangerous affair. Mike Schwartz, the Harpooners’ team captain and Henry’s best friend, realizes he has guided Henry’s career at the expense of his own. And Pella Affenlight, Guert’s daughter, returns to Westish after escaping an ill-fated marriage, determined to start a new life.As the season counts down to its climactic final game, these five are forced to confront their deepest hopes, anxieties, and secrets. In the process they forge new bonds, and help one another find their true paths

 

Binnenkort verschijnt er een tweede deel van de boeken die ik graag nog wil kopen. Alle samenvattingen die ik voor deze blogpost heb gebruikt komen van Goodreads.

 

Love,
