Neu auf der Wunschliste #4

Und schon wieder wächst die Wunschliste! In letzter Zeit sind mir wieder ein paar interessante Werke aufgefallen, die ich euch gerne vorstellen mag. 3 davon erscheinen im April 2014.

1. The Taking von Kimberly Derting

Wird Ende April veröffentlicht und hört sich ziemlich interessant an. Ich hoffe nur, dass die Romanze nicht zu sehr im Mittelpunkt steht.

The last thing Kyra Agnew remembers is a flash of bright light. She awakes to discover that five whole years have passed. Everyone in her life has moved on—her parents divorced, her boyfriend is in college and dating her best friend—but Kyra's still the sixteen-year-old she was when she vanished. She finds herself drawn to Tyler, her boyfriend's kid brother, despite her best efforts to ignore her growing attraction. In order to find out the truth, the two of them decide to retrace her steps from that fateful night. They discover there are others who have been "taken," just like Kyra. Only, Kyra is the first person to have been returned past the forty-eight-hour taken mark. With a determined, secret government agency after her, Kyra desperately tries to find an explanation and reclaim the life she once had . . . but what if the life she wants back is not her own?

2. Jim Henson's Labyrinth: The Novelization von A.C.H. Smith

Als großer Fan des Films muss ich das Buch einfach haben!

Return to the Kingdom of Whence in this sprawling prequel to Jim Henson’s classic film Labyrinth. Finally back in print and for the first time in hardcover is the novelization of LABYRINTH written by A.C.H. Smith and personally overseen by Jim Henson. This is the first in a series of novels from the Jim Henson Archives. This beautiful hardcover features unpublished goblin illustrations by legendary illustrator and concept artist Brian Froud and an exclusive peek into Jim Henson’s creative process with 50 never-before-seen pages from his personal journal, detailing the initial conception of his ideas for LABYRINTH.

3. The Forbidden Library von Django Wexler

Klingt magisch und fantastisch. Außerdem mag ich Bücher, in denen Bibliotheken & Bücher selbst eine Rolle spielen.
Late one night Alice Creighton hears her father having an argument with a fairy - a snarling, bald beast with warts and needle-like teeth. It is threatening her father, insisting he accept a mysterious offer, or else. When Alice's father goes down in a shipwreck, she is sent away to live with distant relative Mr Geryon, owner of a huge, dark library that is off limits to Alice. After meeting a talking cat who is willing to sneak her in, Alice opens a book and suddenly finds herself inside it - and the only way out is by conquering the dangerous creatures within. Alice has stumbled into a world where all of magic is controlled by Readers through books - she must open more books, face increasingly powerful foes, be the lead character in the quest to find a happy ending.

4. The Maze Runner von James Dashner

Nach Dystopien suche ich im Moment öfter, weil ich von "The Passage" so begeistert war und gerne ähnliches lesen möchte. Ich mag Labyrinth-Stories und deshalb hat mich "The Maze Runner" direkt angesprochen.

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He's surrounded by strangers--boys whose memories are also gone. Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It's the only way out--and no  one's ever made it through alive.Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.
