Book Haul Amerika

Lieve lezers,

Inmiddels ben ik (helaas) weer terug in Nederland en heb ik een geweldige vakantie gehad. Maar aan alle leuke dingen komt een einde dus ook aan deze vakantie. Maar als herinnering aan deze trip heb ik (veel te veel) boeken gekocht. Met als resultaat 19 kilo aan handbagage maar een hoop mooie boeken en extra mooie herinneringen in de maak.

Vandaag wil ik jullie graag laten zien welke boeken ik heb gekocht.

Lost in a Book
Smart, bookish Belle, a captive in the Beast’s castle, has become accustomed to her new home and has befriended its inhabitants. When she comes upon Nevermore, an enchanted book unlike anything else she has seen in the castle, Belle finds herself pulled into its pages and transported to a world of glamour and intrigue. The adventures Belle has always imagined, the dreams she was forced to give up when she became a prisoner, seem within reach again. The charming and mysterious characters Belle meets within the pages of Nevermore offer her glamorous conversation, a life of dazzling Parisian luxury, and even a reunion she never thought possible. Here Belle can have everything she ever wished for. But what about her friends in the Beast’s castle? Can Belle trust her new companions inside the pages of Nevermore? Is Nevermore’s world even real? Belle must uncover the truth about the book, before she loses herself in it forever.

Ik ben zo enorm blij dat ik dit boek heb kunnen vinden. Ik wilde hem graag kopen op de luchthaven in New York maar helaas hadden ze hem daar niet. Maar gelukkig bij de Barnes & Noble in Fort Lauderdale hadden ze er genoeg.

 

As old as time
What if Belle’s mother cursed the Beast? “As Old as Time” is the third book in a new YA line that reimagines classic Disney stories in surprising new ways. When Belle touches the Beast’s enchanted rose, memories flood through Belle’s mind-memories of a mother she thought she would never see again. And, stranger still, she sees that her mother is none other than the beautiful enchantress who cursed the castle and all its inhabitants. Shocked and confused, Belle and the Beast will have to unravel a dark mystery about their families that is 21 years in the making.

Het grootste voordeel aan de nieuwe remake van de film is dat al deze leuke boeken nu op de markt verschijnen. Nog een extra verhaal rondom ons favoriete sprookje.

 

Grimm’s fairytales 
Grimm’s  Fairy Tales collects more than two hundred tales set down by Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm in the early decades of the nineteenth century, among them some of the best-loved and most famous fairy tales in all literature: “Little Red Riding Hood,” “Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Cinderella,” “Sleeping Beauty,” “Rapunzel,” “Rumpelstiltskin,” and “Tom Thumb”. Derived from folk tales that had been part of the oral storytelling tradition for centuries, these stories are acknowledged as literary landmarks that transcend their time and culture. This edition also features ten rarely seen “Children’s Legends” and the full-colour artwork of Arthur Rackham. Grimm’s Complete Fairy Tales is one of Barnes & Noble’s Leatherbound classics. Each volume features authoritative texts by the world’s greatest authors in an exquisitely designed bonded-leather binding, with distinctive gilt edging and a silk-ribbon bookmark.

Spelled 
Fairy Tale Survival Rule #32: If you find yourself at the mercy of a wicked witch, sing a romantic ballad and wait for your Prince Charming to save the day.
Yeah, no thanks. Dorthea is completely princed out. Sure being the crown princess of Emerald has its perks—like Glenda Original ball gowns and Hans Christian Louboutin heels. But a forced marriage to the not-so-charming prince Kato is so not what Dorthea had in mind for her enchanted future. 
Talk about unhappily ever after.
Trying to fix her prince problem by wishing on a (cursed) star royally backfires, leaving the kingdom in chaos and her parents stuck in some place called ”Kansas.” Now it’s up to Dorthea and her pixed off prince to find the mysterious Wizard of Oz and undo the curse…before it releases the wickedest witch of all and spells The End for the world of Story.

Dit boek lijkt me zo enorm grappig maar toch ook heerlijk. Plus de cover is zo mooi dat ik hem niet kon laten liggen. (En ook nog eens een hele leuke prijs)

Pride and Prejudice
This volume of Jane Austen’s classic novel of manners and mores in early 19th-century England has an exquisitely designed foil-stamped binding, with distinctive coloured edging and an attractive silk-ribbon bookmark.

Eindelijk heb ik een echte klassieker op mijn planken staan. Dit boek wilde ik al heel lang hebben maar het was overal zo duur. Tot ik deze prachtige editie voor maar 5 dollar tegen kwam!

 

 

Ik heb enorm veel plezier gehad ik alle boekhandels in Amerika, en binnenkort zal er dan ook een klein verslagje online komen van deze avonturen.

Welk boek vinden jullie het leukste uit deze stapel?

Liefs, Marjolein
