[What'sNew] Feburary {Teil 2}

Und hier nun Teil 2 meiner heißersehnten, englischen Neuerscheinungen im Februar!

Reign of Shadows (Reign of Shadows, #1)

Seventeen years ago, an eclipse cloaked the kingdom of Relhok in perpetual darkness. In the chaos, an evil chancellor murdered the king and queen and seized their throne. Luna, Relhok’s lost princess, has been hiding in a tower ever since. Luna’s survival depends on the world believing she is dead.

But that doesn’t stop Luna from wanting more. When she meets Fowler, a mysterious archer braving the woods outside her tower, Luna is drawn to him despite the risk. When the tower is attacked, Luna and Fowler escape together. But this world of darkness is more treacherous than Luna ever realized.

With every threat stacked against them, Luna and Fowler find solace in each other. But with secrets still unspoken between them, falling in love might be their most dangerous journey yet.
Die "Firelight" Reihe von Sophie Jordan hat mir damals ziemlich gut gefallen und auch die neueste Übersetzung "Infernale" scheint ziemlichen Anklang zu finden.
Dann geht es auch noch um ein Königreich und geheimnisvolle Machenschaften...definitiv etwas für mich!
Symptoms of Being Human

The first thing you’re going to want to know about me is: Am I a boy, or am I a girl?

Riley Cavanaugh is many things: Punk rock. Snarky. Rebellious. And gender fluid. Some days Riley identifies as a boy, and others as a girl. The thing is…Riley isn’t exactly out yet. And between starting a new school and having a congressman father running for reelection in uber-conservative Orange County, the pressure—media and otherwise—is building up in Riley’s so-called “normal” life.

On the advice of a therapist, Riley starts an anonymous blog to vent those pent-up feelings and tell the truth of what it’s REALLY like to be a gender fluid teenager. But just as Riley’s starting to settle in at school—even developing feelings for a mysterious outcast—the blog goes viral, and an unnamed commenter discovers Riley’s real identity, threatening exposure. Riley must make a choice: walk away from what the blog has created—a lifeline, new friends, a cause to believe in—or stand up, come out, and risk everything.
Eine Geschichte über einen Hauptcharakter der Gender Fluid ist, sich als sowohl als Mädchen als auch als Junge fühlt. Ein interessantes Thema, über das ich bisher viel zu wenig weiß und deswegen gerne unbedingt mehr lernen möchte. Zudem klingt die Story mit dem Blog und den überkonservativen Eltern wirklich spannend!
These Vicious Masks (These Vicious Masks, #1)

Jane Austen meets X-­Men in this gripping and adventure-­filled paranormal romance set in Victorian London.

England, 1882. Evelyn is bored with society and its expectations. So when her beloved sister, Rose, mysteriously vanishes, she ignores her parents and travels to London to find her, accompanied by the dashing Mr. Kent. But they’re not the only ones looking for Rose. The reclusive, young gentleman Sebastian Braddock is also searching for her, claiming that both sisters have special healing powers. Evelyn is convinced that Sebastian must be mad, until she discovers that his strange tales of extraordinary people are true—and that her sister is in graver danger than she feared.

Jane Austen meets X-Men?! Allein mit diesem Satz hatten sie mich schon :D
Tatsächlich erinnert mich die Beschreibung ein bisschen an "Stolz& und Vorurteil" gemischt mit einer Prise übernatürlichem. Was kann dabei noch schief gehen?

Blackbeard the pirate was known for striking fear in the hearts of the bravest of sailors. But once he was just a young man who dreamed of leaving his rigid life behind to chase adventure in faraway lands. Nothing could stop him—until he met the one girl who would change everything.

Edward "Teach" Drummond, son of one of Bristol's richest merchants, has just returned from a year-long journey on the high seas to find his life in shambles. Betrothed to a girl he doesn’t love and sick of the high society he was born into, Teach dreams only of returning to the vast ocean he’d begun to call home. There's just one problem: convincing his father to let him leave and never come back.

Following her parents' deaths, Anne Barrett is left penniless and soon to be homeless. Though she’s barely worked a day in her life, Anne is forced to take a job as a maid in the home of Master Drummond. Lonely days stretch into weeks, and Anne longs for escape. How will she ever realize her dream of sailing to Curaçao—where her mother was born—when she's stuck in England? 

From the moment Teach and Anne meet, they set the world ablaze. Drawn to each other, they’re trapped by society and their own circumstances. Faced with an impossible choice, they must decide to chase their dreams and go, or follow their hearts and stay.
Die Geschichte des jungen Piraten Blackbeard (wenn ich das richtig verstanden habe). Ich bin noch ein bisschen kontrovers, ob ich das Buch wirklich lesen möchte. Einerseits finde ich Piratengeschichten immer toll, andererseits klingt es ein wenig so, als hätte die ganze Story mehr mit seiner ersten Liebe, als mit dem Pirat sein zu tun... Ich lasse mich mal von mir selbst überraschen obs gekauft wird oder nicht :)

Pax was only a kit when his family was killed, and “his boy” Peter rescued him from abandonment and certain death. Now the war front approaches, and when Peter’s father enlists, Peter has to move in with his grandpa. Far worse than being forced to leave home is the fact that Pax can’t go. Peter listens to his stern father—as he usually does—and throws Pax’s favorite toy soldier into the woods. When the fox runs to retrieve it, Peter and his dad get back in the car and leave him there—alone. But before Peter makes it through even one night under his grandfather’s roof, regret and duty spur him to action; he packs for a trek to get his best friend back and sneaks into the night. This is the story of Peter, Pax, and their independent struggles to return to one another against all odds. Told from the alternating viewpoints of Peter and Pax.
Allein dieses wunderschöne Cover, hach. Und dann ist es auch noch illustriert!
Die Geschichte klingt gleichermaßen herzzerreißend und herzerwärmend und obwohl es das wohl sein soll, hört sich das Buch für mich so gar nicht wie ein Kinderbuch an. 
Krieg, Freundschaft, Verlassen und Wiederfinden. Ich kann es jetzt schon kaum erwarten dieses Buch in die Finger zu bekommen!

Hat es eins der Bücher auf eure Wunschliste geschafft?
