WWW Wednesday

Ik heb deze voorbij zien komen bij Melissa’s bookworld en gevraagd of ik hem ook op mijn blog mocht doen. Het was de bedoeling dat ik deze elke week zou plaatsen maar helaas lukte me dat niet de laatste tijd. Maar ik wil het nu in ieder geval weer op gaan pakken. Je beantwoord drie vragen. Wat heb je als laatste uitgelezen? Wat lees je nu? Wat ga je hierna lezen. Nou laten we snel gaan kijken welke boeken ik hier ga invullen! Omdat het overigens helaas heel donker weer is geweest is het me niet gelukt foto’s te maken. Ik gebruik nu dus afbeeldingen van Goodreads en zal daaronder de beschrijving van het boek plaatsen.

Wat heb je als laatste uitgelezen?

Dat is The year we hid away van Sarina Bowen, wat een heerlijk boek was dat zeg! Het is een echte New Adult met een heerlijk verhaal. Ik ben ook erg benieuwd naar de rest van de boeken in deze serie.

She’s hiding something big. He’s hiding someone small.

Scarlet Crowley’s life was torn apart the day father was arrested for unspeakable crimes. Now the shock has worn off, but not the horror. 

It’s a safe bet that Scarlet is the only first year at Harkness College who had to sneak past TV news trucks parked on her front lawn just to leave town. But college will be Scarlet’s fresh start. Clutching a shiny new student ID — with a newly minted name on it — she leaves it all behind. Even if it means lying to the boy she’s falling for.

Bridger McCaulley is a varsity hockey star known for being a player both on and off the ice. But a sobering family crisis takes that all away. Protecting his sister means a precarious living arrangement and constant deception. The only bright spot in his week is the few stolen hours he spends with Scarlet.

The two form a tentative relationship based on the understanding that some things must always be held back. But when grim developments threaten them both, going it alone just won’t work anymore. And if they can’t learn to trust one another now, the families who let them down will take everything they’ve struggled to keep.

Wat lees je nu?

Op dit moment lees ik Even the darkest stars van Heather Fawcett . Ik kan er nog niet zoveel over zeggen want ik heb echt nog maar een paar pagina’s gelezen. Maar ik heb er best een goed gevoel over haha.

Kamzin has always dreamed of becoming one of the emperor’s royal explorers, the elite climbers tasked with mapping the wintry, mountainous Empire and spying on its enemies. She knows she could be the best in the world, if only someone would give her a chance.

But everything changes when the mysterious and eccentric River Shara, the greatest explorer ever known, arrives in her village and demands to hire Kamzin—not her older sister, Lusha, as everyone had expected—for his next expedition. This is Kamzin’s chance to prove herself—even though River’s mission to retrieve a rare talisman for the emperor means cimbing Raksha, the tallest and deadliest mountain in the Aryas. Then, Lusha sets off on her own mission to Raksha with a rival explorer, and Kamzin must decide what’s most important to her: protecting her sister from the countless perils of the climb or beating her to the summit.

The challenges of climbing Raksha are unlike anything Kamzin expected—or prepared for—with avalanches, ice chasms, ghosts, and other dangers at every turn. And as dark secrets are revealed, Kamzin must unravel the truth about their mission and her companions—while surviving the deadliest climb she has ever faced. 

Wat ga je hierna lezen?

Dat weet ik echt nog niet, voor nu zeg ik An enchantment of ravens maar dat kan na het uitlezen van dit boek weer helemaal anders zijn.

sobel is a prodigy portrait artist with a dangerous set of clients: the sinister fair folk, immortal creatures who cannot bake bread, weave cloth, or put a pen to paper without crumbling to dust. They crave human Craft with a terrible thirst, and Isobel’s paintings are highly prized among them. But when she receives her first royal patron—Rook, the autumn prince—she makes a terrible mistake. She paints mortal sorrow in his eyes – a weakness that could cost him his life.

Furious and devastated, Rook spirits her away to the autumnlands to stand trial for her crime. Waylaid by the Wild Hunt’s ghostly hounds, the tainted influence of the Alder King, and hideous monsters risen from barrow mounds, Isobel and Rook depend on one another for survival. Their alliance blossoms into trust, then love, violating the fair folks’ ruthless Good Law. There’s only one way to save both their lives, Isobel must drink from the Green Well, whose water will transform her into a fair one—at the cost of her Craft, for immortality is as stagnant as it is timeless.

Isobel has a choice: she can sacrifice her art for a future, or arm herself with paint and canvas against the ancient power of the fairy courts. Because secretly, her Craft represents a threat the fair folk have never faced in all the millennia of their unchanging lives: for the first time, her portraits have the power to make them feel.
