[What'sNew] Englische Neuerscheinungen April 2016

Auch diesen Monat waren und werden wieder einige tolle englische Neuerscheinungen dabei sein!

The Glittering Court (The Glittering Court, #1)

For a select group of girls, the Glittering Court offers a shot at a life they’ve only ever dreamed of, one of luxury, glamour, and leisure. To high-born Adelaide, whose wealthy family is forcing her into a loveless marriage, the Glittering Court represents something else: the chance to chart her own destiny, and adventure in an unspoiled, prosperous new land across the sea.
After a chance meeting with the dazzling Cedric Thorn, Adelaide poses as a servant to join the crop of impoverished girls he promises to transform into proper ladies. But her familiarity with upper class life comes with a price: she must hide her identity from her new friends, mysterious refugee Mira and fiery former laundress Tamsin, and most importantly, from Cedric himself—even though she’s falling in love with him. 
Everything begins to crumble when Cedric discovers Adelaide’s ruse, and she catches the eye of a powerful young governor, who wants her for a wife. She didn’t leave the gilded cage of her old life behind just to become someone else's property. But nothing is as daunting—or as wonderful—as the potent, forbidden attraction simmering between Adelaide and Cedric. One that, if acted on, would make them both outcasts in a wild, dangerous, uncharted world, and possibly lead them to their deaths.
Hm, erinnert mich ein bisschen an "Die rote Königin" vom Klappentext her. Die Meinungen um das Buch waren ja eher zwiegespalten, wobei es mir damals relativ gut gefallen hatte. Ich denke, ich werde auch "The Glittering Court" die Chance geben mich zu überzeugen.
Scarlett Epstein Hates It Here

Meet Scarlett Epstein, BNF (Big Name Fan) in her online community of fanfiction writers, world-class nobody at Melville High. Her best (read: only) IRL friends are Avery, a painfully shy and annoyingly attractive bookworm, and Ruth, her pot-smoking, possibly insane seventy-three-year-old neighbor. 
When Scarlett’s beloved TV show is canceled and her longtime crush, Gideon, is sucked out of her orbit and into the dark and distant world of Populars, Scarlett turns to the fanfic message boards for comfort. This time, though, her subjects aren’t the swoon-worthy stars of her fave series—they’re the real-life kids from her high school. Scarlett never considers what might happen if they were to find out what she truly thinks about them...until a dramatic series of events exposes a very different reality than Scarlett's stories, forever transforming her approach to relationships—both online and off.
Hört sich total nach "The DUFF" an und das Buch habe ich damals geliebt! Es war sogar schon kurz in meinem Amazon Einkaufskorb, aber dann hat der Blick aufs Konto mich doch Zurückhaltung gelehrt :D Aber bald!
Down With the Shine

Think twice before you make a wish in this imaginative, twisted, and witty new novel from the author of Another Little Piece.
When Lennie brings a few jars of her uncles’ moonshine to Michaela Gordon’s house party, she has everyone who drinks it make a wish. It’s tradition. So is the toast her uncles taught her: “May all your wishes come true, or at least just this one.”
The thing is, those words aren’t just a tradition. The next morning, every wish—no matter how crazy—comes true. And most of them turn out bad. But once granted, a wish can’t be unmade . . .
Ein "Getränk", das einfach alle Wünsche erfüllt, dass in einem völligen Wunschchaos endet? Hört sich sehr unterhaltsam und witzig an und muss definitiv gelesen werden!
Love, Lies and Spies

Juliana Telford is not your average nineteenth-century young lady. She's much more interested in researching ladybugs than marriage, fashionable dresses, or dances. So when her father sends her to London for a season, she's determined not to form any attachments. Instead, she plans to secretly publish her research.
Spencer Northam is not the average young gentleman of leisure he appears. He is actually a spy for the War Office, and is more focused on acing his first mission than meeting eligible ladies. Fortunately, Juliana feels the same, and they agree to pretend to fall for each other. Spencer can finally focus, until he is tasked with observing Juliana's traveling companions . . . and Juliana herself.
Normalerweise gefallen mir historische Romane nicht so gut, aber das hier hört sich eher nach einem historischen Jugendbuch an. Dann geht es auch noch um Spione und eine rebellische weibliche Hauptfigur...I'm in!
Heir to the Sky
As heir to a kingdom of floating continents, Kali has spent her life bound by limits: by her duties as a member of the royal family, by a forced betrothal to the son of a nobleman, and by the edge of the only world she's ever known a small island hovering above a monster-ridden earth, long since uninhabited by humans. She is the Eternal Flame of Hope for what's left of mankind, the wick and the wax burning in service for her people, and for their revered Phoenix, whose magic keeps them aloft. 
When Kali falls off the edge of her kingdom and miraculously survives, she is shocked to discover there are still humans on the earth. Determined to get home, Kali entrusts a rugged monster-hunter named Griffin to guide her across a world overrun by chimera, storm dragons, basilisks and other terrifying creatures. But the more time she spends on earth, the more dark truths she begins to uncover about her home in the sky, and the more resolute she is to start burning for herself.

Eine monsterverseuchte Welt und ein auserwähltes Mädchen, das die Reise durch diese Welt antreten muss um sie zu retten...klingt spannend! Dazu kommt noch eine Prise Magie und Geheimnis und violà! Das perfekte Wunschlistenbuch ist erschaffen!
For as long as Alice can remember, she has dreamed of Max. Together, they have traveled the world and fallen deliriously, hopelessly in love. Max is the boy of her dreams—and only her dreams. Because he doesn’t exist.
But when Alice walks into class on her first day at a new school, there he is. Real Max is nothing like Dream Max. He’s stubborn and complicated. And he has a whole life Alice isn’t a part of. Getting to know each other in reality isn’t as perfect as Alice always hoped.
Alarmingly, when their dreams start to bleed into their waking hours, the pair realize that they might have to put an end to a lifetime of dreaming about each other. But when you fall in love in your dreams, can reality ever be enough?

Ich bin mir recht sicher, dass das Buch dieses Jahr auch noch auf Deutsch beim one Verlag erscheint.
Es geht um ein Mädchen, dass immer wieder von einem Jungen träumt, den es aber in Wirklichkeit gar nicht gibt, zumindest dachte sie das, bis sie ihn getroffen hat!
Ich mag Bücher, die sich ein bisschen mit dem Surrealen und Träumen beschäftigen, deswegen wird dieses hier sicherlich gelesen!

The Darkest Corners
 There are ghosts around every corner in Fayette, Pennsylvania. Tessa left when she was nine and has been trying ever since not to think about it after what happened there that last summer. Memories of things so dark will burn themselves into your mind if you let them.
    Callie never left. She moved to another house, so she doesn’t have to walk those same halls, but then Callie always was the stronger one. She can handle staring into the faces of her demons—and if she parties hard enough, maybe one day they’ll disappear for good.
    Tessa and Callie have never talked about what they saw that night. After the trial, Callie drifted and Tessa moved, and childhood friends just have a way of losing touch.
    But ever since she left, Tessa has had questions. Things have never quite added up. And now she has to go back to Fayette—to Wyatt Stokes, sitting on death row; to Lori Cawley, Callie’s dead cousin; and to the one other person who may be hiding the truth.
    Only the closer Tessa gets to the truth, the closer she gets to a killer—and this time, it won’t be so easy to run away.
Ein vergangenes Verbrechen über das niemand spricht, zwei Mädchen, verstört von den Geschehnissen und ein Prozess, der nun plötzlich alles wieder aufrollen soll und auch den Killer auf den Plan ruft.
Zusammen mit dem Cover sieht das alles nach einer schön düsteren und gruseligen Geschichte aus und ich denke, ich werde es mir für die dunkle Herbstzeit aufheben, in der ich mich besonders gern grusele : )
The Star-Touched Queen
Fate and fortune. Power and passion. What does it take to be the queen of a kingdom when you're only seventeen?
Maya is cursed. With a horoscope that promises a marriage of Death and Destruction, she has earned only the scorn and fear of her father's kingdom. Content to follow more scholarly pursuits, her whole world is torn apart when her father, the Raja, arranges a wedding of political convenience to quell outside rebellions. Soon Maya becomes the queen of Akaran and wife of Amar. Neither roles are what she expected: As Akaran's queen, she finds her voice and power. As Amar's wife, she finds something else entirely: Compassion. Protection. Desire...
But Akaran has its own secrets -- thousands of locked doors, gardens of glass, and a tree that bears memories instead of fruit. Soon, Maya suspects her life is in danger. Yet who, besides her husband, can she trust? With the fate of the human and Otherworldly realms hanging in the balance, Maya must unravel an ancient mystery that spans reincarnated lives to save those she loves the most. . .including herself.

Eine verfluchte Königin und ein potenzieller Prinz mit vielen Geheimnissen...hört sich erstmal nach 0815 an, aber dennoch lässt der Klappentext bereits ein paar ungewöhnliche Details anklingen die mich neugierig machen.
Das Buch werde ich auf jeden Fall näher im Auge behalten.
