US udgivelsesdag #44

Hver tirsdag udgiver de amerikanske forlag en masse spændende bøger. Jeg nævner de mest populære her på bloggen for at inspirerer. Det er ikke sikkert at nogen af dem bliver oversat eller udgivet på dansk. Hvis du ønsker at bestille dem, på originaltsprog, fra i dag, kan du gøre det på cdon.com eller amazon.com. Læg mærke til der kan forekomme spoilers i beskrivelsen, ved udgivelse af efterfølgere.



Linked




Første bog i en ny serie af Imogen Howson

Goodreads: Elissa used to have it all: looks, popularity, and a bright future. But for the last three years, she’s been struggling with terrifying visions, phantom pains, and mysterious bruises that appear out of nowhere.

Finally, she’s promised a cure: minor surgery to burn out the overactive area of her brain. But on the eve of the procedure, she discovers the shocking truth behind her hallucinations: she’s been seeing the world through another girl’s eyes.

Elissa follows her visions, and finds a battered, broken girl on the run. A girl—Lin—who looks exactly like Elissa, down to the matching bruises. The twin sister she never knew existed.

Now, Elissa and Lin are on the run from a government who will stop at nothing to reclaim Lin and protect the dangerous secrets she could expose—secrets that would shake the very foundation of their world.

Riveting, thought-provoking and utterly compelling, Linked will make you question what it really means to be human.





Belle Epoque




En stand alone bog af Elizabeth Ross

Goodreads: When Maude Pichon runs away from provincial Brittany to Paris, her romantic dreams vanish as quickly as her savings. Desperate for work, she answers an unusual ad. The Durandeau Agency provides its clients with a unique service—the beauty foil. Hire a plain friend and become instantly more attractive.

Monsieur Durandeau has made a fortune from wealthy socialites, and when the Countess Dubern needs a companion for her headstrong daughter, Isabelle, Maude is deemed the perfect foil.

But Isabelle has no idea her new "friend" is the hired help, and Maude's very existence among the aristocracy hinges on her keeping the truth a secret. Yet the more she learns about Isabelle, the more her loyalty is tested. And the longer her deception continues, the more she has to lose.





Infamous




Tredje bog i Fame Game serien af Lauren Conrad

Goodreads: Infamous brings Lauren Conrad’s juicy, gossipy Fame Game series to a stunning conclusion.

As the star of MTV series The Hills, Lauren Conrad understands Hollywood life. She uses insider knowledge to tell the story of Madison Parker, Kate Hayes, and Carmen Curtis, stars of The Fame Game, the reality TV show that follows the girls as they try to become famous in L.A.

Kate and Carmen are about to become big stars, but they’re going to have to survive some backstage drama first. Madison is learning hard lessons about fame as she deals with backstabb
ing “friends” and family, out-of-control paparazzi, and a scandal reported in every tabloid.

Pretty Little Lies




En stand alone bog af Jennifer Miller

Goodreads: A little lie can change the course of everything. . .

Like every other eighteen-year-old in love, Olivia has dreams of spending forever with the love of her life. Luke is all she’s ever wanted – until she overhears something she was never meant to. In a matter of seconds, Olivia’s heart is shattered. Olivia handles it the only way she knows how - she runs- leaving behind her family, friends and the boy she loves.

Seeking comfort and an escape, Olivia finds it in resident bad boy Deacon. He’s everything Luke isn’t – and that’s fine with Olivia.

Now, seven years later, Olivia is older, wiser and headed back to Chicago looking forward to a fresh start and reconnecting with her best friend Pyper. What she doesn’t expect, is to come face to face with the boy she left behind and discover that even though she may have left, her feelings for him didn’t.

Can Olivia put aside the pain in her heart and trust Luke? Will the ties to her past ever let her go, or will she continue to let her life be affected by pretty little lies?

  1. Pretty Little Lies lyder altså virkelig spændende, selvom jeg måske ikke er helt så vild med titlen. Men den lyder som sådan en bog, som egentlig er hurtigt læst, men som alligevel sætter nogle tanker i gang :)

    1. Enig, jeg synes også titlen minder lidt for meget om Sara Shepards pretty Little liars serie.
