De laatste tijd wissel ik wat meer af met Engelse boeken. En heb ik een stiekeme koopverslaving aan Engelse boeken.
Daarom besloot ik dat het vandaag eens tijd is om met jullie te delen welke boeken er dan zoal op mijn Wishlist staan.
The Wicked Deep
Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow…
Two centuries ago, in the small, isolated town, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town. Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return from the depths, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them down to their watery deaths. Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into or the fact that his arrival will change everything… Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.
But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself.
Dit boek wordt vergeleken met Hocus Spocus en alleen al daarom en vanwege de prachtige cover wil ik hem hebben.
The Light We Lost
Lucy and Gabe meet in New York on a day that will change their lives – and the world – forever. As the city burns behind them, they kiss for the very first time.
Over the next thirteen years they are torn apart, then brought back together, time and time again. It’s a journey of dreams, of desires, of jealousy, of forgiveness – and above all, love.
And as Lucy is faced with a devastating choice, she wonders whether their love is a matter of destiny or chance.
…what if this is how their story ends?
Dit boek heeft the one and only Reese Witherspoon op dit moment in haar BookClub. Reden genoeg dus om dit boek NU te gaan lezen.
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine
Eleanor Oliphant has learned how to survive – but not how to live Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes to work every day, eats the same meal deal for lunch every day and buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink every weekend. Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she’s avoided all her life. Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely any change is better than… fine?
Dit boek lijkt me pijnlijk maar ook hilarisch tegelijkertijd. Ik ben super benieuwd.
Once Upon a Dream / A Twisted Tale
What if the sleeping beauty never woke up? Once Upon a Dream marks the second book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways.
It should be simple–a dragon defeated, a slumbering princess in a castle, a prince poised to wake her. But when the prince falls asleep as his lips touch the fair maiden’s, it is clear that this fairy tale is far from over.
With a desperate fairy’s last curse controlling her mind, Princess Aurora must escape from a different castle of thorns and navigate a dangerously magical landscape–created from her very own dreams. Aurora isn’t alone–a charming prince is eager to join her quest, and old friends offer their help. But as Maleficent’s agents follow her every move, Aurora struggles to discover who her true allies are and, moreover, who she truly is. Time is running out. Will the sleeping beauty be able to wake herself up?
Ik ben de twisted tale serie aan het sparen en deze mag daarom dan ook echt niet ontbreken. (Deze en de Mulan versie moet ik nog hebben)
Mijn Wishlist is op dit moment niet zo heel lang omdat ik een 4 dagen geleden weer een hele hoop besteld heb. Deze aankopen kunnen jullie (deels) al zien op Instagram.
