To Be Read in juli

IMG_4915.JPG

Ik heb mijn TBR voor juli op drie boeken gezet, aangezien ik weet dat als ik er meer aan toevoeg ik meer druk voel en waarschijnlijk met minder plezier ga lezen.

Eerlijk gezegd houd ik mij niet echt aan mijn to be read lijstjes, meestal pak ik gewoon een boek waar ik zin in heb. Ik heb nu echter drie boeken uitgekozen die ik al lang wil lezen en dus graag in juli wil gaan lezen.

  1. Flame in the Mist – Renee Ahdieh
    Dit boek zat in de Fairyloot box van mei en is een re-telling van Mulan. Ik ben hier erg benieuwd naar, ik vind de voorkant ook echt prachtig.

    The only daughter of a prominent samurai, Mariko has always known she’d been raised for one purpose and one purpose only: to marry. Never mind her cunning, which rivals that of her twin brother, Kenshin, or her skills as an accomplished alchemist. Since Mariko was not born a boy, her fate was sealed the moment she drew her first breath.

    So, at just seventeen years old, Mariko is sent to the imperial palace to meet her betrothed, a man she did not choose, for the very first time. But the journey is cut short when Mariko’s convoy is viciously attacked by the Black Clan, a dangerous group of bandits who’ve been hired to kill Mariko before she reaches the palace.

    The lone survivor, Mariko narrowly escapes to the woods, where she plots her revenge. Dressed as a peasant boy, she sets out to infiltrate the Black Clan and hunt down those responsible for the target on her back. Once she’s within their ranks, though, Mariko finds for the first time she’s appreciated for her intellect and abilities. She even finds herself falling in love—a love that will force her to question everything she’s ever known about her family, her purpose, and her deepest desires.

  2. The Night Circus – Erin Morgenstern
    Nadat ik Caraval van Stephanie Garber heb gelezen, wil ik meer verhalen over circussen lezen, en toen werd mij deze aangeraden. Caraval is namelijk ook geïnspireerd op The Night Circus, dus ik ben heel benieuwd!

    The circus arrives without warning. No announcements precede it, no paper notices plastered on lampposts and billboards. It is simply there, when yesterday it was not.

    Within these nocturnal black-and-white striped tents awaits an utterly unique, a feast for the senses, where one can get lost in a maze of clouds, meander through a lush garden made of ice, stare in wonderment as the tattooed contortionist folds herself into a small glass box, and become deliciously tipsy from the scents of caramel and cinnamon that waft through the air.

  3. Roar – Cora Carmack
    Dit boek zat in de Fairyloot box van juni en dit lijkt me echt zo’n tof boek. Ik ben hier erg benieuwd naar en ik kan niet wachten om er in te beginnen!

    In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

    Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

    To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

    Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.

    She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.

    Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master
