A teenage assassin kills with a single kiss until she is ordered to kill the one boy she loves. This commercial YA fantasy is romantic and addictive like– a poison kiss– and will thrill fans of Sarah J. Maas and Victoria Aveyard.

Marinda has kissed dozens of boys. They all die afterward. It s a miserable life, but being a visha kanya a poison maiden is what she was created to do. Marinda serves the Raja by dispatching his enemies with only her lips as a weapon.

Until now, the men she was ordered to kiss have been strangers, enemies of the kingdom. Then she receives orders to kiss Deven, a boy she knows too well to be convinced he needs to die. She begins to question who she s really working for. And that is a thread that, once pulled, will unravel more than she can afford to lose.

This rich, surprising, and accessible debut is based in Indian folklore and delivers a story that will keep readers on the edge of their seats.

Beware the goblin men and the wares they sell.

All her life, nineteen-year-old Liesl has heard tales of the beautiful, mysterious Goblin King. He is the Lord of Mischief, the Ruler Underground, and the muse around which her music is composed. Yet, as Liesl helps shoulder the burden of running her family’s inn, her dreams of composition and childish fancies about the Goblin King must be set aside in favor of more practical concerns.

But when her sister Käthe is taken by the goblins, Liesl journeys to their realm to rescue her sister and return her to the world above. The Goblin King agrees to let Käthe go—for a price. The life of a maiden must be given to the land, in accordance with the old laws. A life for a life, he says. Without sacrifice, nothing good can grow. Without death, there can be no rebirth. In exchange for her sister’s freedom, Liesl offers her hand in marriage to the Goblin King. He accepts.

Down in the Underground, Liesl discovers that the Goblin King still inspires her—musically, physically, emotionally. Yet even as her talent blossoms, Liesl’s life is slowly fading away, the price she paid for becoming the Goblin King’s bride. As the two of them grow closer, they must learn just what it is they are each willing to sacrifice: her life, her music, or the end of the world.


En dan kijk ik ook nog uit naar een hele boel vervolg boeken!! Ook hiervan een selectie, maar dan zonder de blurb er bij in verband met spoilers 😉

Ik hoop volgend jaar zo’n 40 boeken te lezen, een paar meer dan dit jaar dus! Ik heb nu ik in Amerika woon iets meer tijd om te lezen, maar ik kan helaas niet echt boeken kopen (want ja het moet ook weer mee terug naar Nederland haha, dus ik hoop dat het lukt!

Ik ben ook op zoek gegaan naar de meest interessante nieuwkomers van 2017, en ik moet zeggen dat ik nu wel heel erg uitkijk naar 2017!!!!

Seventeen-year-old Ruby is a fireblood who must hide her powers of heat and flame from the cruel frostblood ruling class that wants to destroy all that are left of her kind. So when her mother is killed for protecting her and rebel frostbloods demand her help to kill their rampaging king, she agrees. But Ruby’s powers are unpredictable, and she’s not sure she’s willing to let the rebels and an infuriating (yet irresistible) young man called Arcus use her as their weapon.

All she wants is revenge, but before they can take action, Ruby is captured and forced to take part in the king’s tournaments that pit fireblood prisoners against frostblood champions. Now she has only one chance to destroy the maniacal ruler who has taken everything from her and from the icy young man she has come to love.

Fast-paced and compelling, Frostblood is the first in a page-turning new young adult three-book series about a world where flame and ice are mortal enemies—but together create a power that could change everything.

Today, he’s a high school dropout with no future.
Tomorrow, he’s a soldier in World War II.

Kale Jackson has spent years trying to control his time-traveling ability but hasn’t had much luck. One day he lives in 1945, fighting in the war as a sharpshooter and helplessly watching soldiers—friends—die. Then the next day, he’s back in the present, where WWII has bled into his modern life in the form of PTSD, straining his relationship with his father and the few friends he has left. Every day it becomes harder to hide his battle wounds, both physical and mental, from the past.

When the ex-girl-next-door, Harper, moves back to town, thoughts of what could be if only he had a normal life begin to haunt him. Harper reminds him of the person he was before the PTSD, which helps anchor him to the present. With practice, maybe Kale could remain in the present permanently and never step foot on a battlefield again. Maybe he can have the normal life he craves.

But then Harper finds Kale’s name in a historical article—and he’s listed as a casualty of the war. Kale knows now that he must learn to control his time-traveling ability to save himself and his chance at a life with Harper. Otherwise, he’ll be killed in a time where he doesn’t belong by a bullet that was never meant for him. (less)

The Elementalist
by V.V. Mont
(De cover is nog niet bekend)

Karina Deliz has no idea how she’s managed to piss off fate. As if life as an impoverished orphan wasn’t bad enough, now she discovers she’s one of the changed—an evolved freak of nature. When a magical outburst uncovers her abilities, nearly killing her friend, the entire human region demands her exile. Karina is branded a monster and shipped to Vincam where the other freaks reside.

But Vincam has everything her old home doesn’t: Food, a thriving kingdom, and magic that’s not as unnatural as she was led to believe. It also has Sergeant Caleda, an irritating Elite Soldier who can manipulate the weather and is almost as stubborn as Karina. They’re constantly at each other’s throats—unsure if it’s a blade or their hearts that keep clashing.

When the king of Vincam discovers Karina can control air, marking her one of the rare Elementalists, he is eager to forge her into a weapon. Heeding Sergeant Caleda’s warning, she hides the truth; her control isn’t just over air but over all of the elements. Being gifted in the kingdom is an asset, but being too powerful marks one as a threat.

With the ability to bend the changed to his will, the King is almost unstoppable, and Karina knows it’s only a matter of time before he discovers her dangerous secret. When the people she loves begin to suffer, Karina searches for an unlikely ally in the rebels. If she can only keep her sharp tongue and growing powers in check, then she’ll stand a chance of ending his reign before he ends her life.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

Ik heb zo veel zin in 2017!!! Ik ben vooral heel benieuwd naar het boek The Elementalist en Cold Summer, hier kunnen jullie dus zeker een recensie van verwachten!
De goodreads challenge van 2016 heb ik gehaald! Sterre heeft me 5 maanden terug kennis laten maken met goodreads (waar ik echt super blij mee ben, echt bedankt! ;)) en ik heb hierin 8 boeken gelezen. Het is misschien niet heel indrukwekkend, maar het is een begin. Natuurlijk doe ik dit jaar ook mee aan de goodreads reading challenge. Ik hoop dit jaar 25 boeken te lezen!

Ook hebben we nog een wat minder leuk bericht van Eline en we laten het haar zelf even vertellen:

Lieve lezers,
Het is jullie misschien al opgevallen dat ik de laatste tijd niet veel meer scheef. Helaas heb ik door mijn stage ontzettend weinig tijd om te lezen en daardoor ook niet veel om over te schrijven. Dit jaar studeer ik af als organisch chemicus en volgend jaar ga ik de docentenopleiding doen dus ook dan zal ik weinig tijd hebben. Waarschijnlijk ben ik daarna wel even uitgestudeerd en ga ik opzoek naar een échte baan. Vandaar dat ik stop met het blog, maar mocht ik iets lezen waarvan ik graag iets met jullie wil delen dan zal ik misschien toch een enkel artikel schrijven. Jullie kunnen natuurlijk gewoon blijven genieten van de artikelen van Mirthe, Esther en Sterre!
-X- Eline

Natuurlijk vinden we het echt super jammer dat Eline Just One More Page gaat verlaten, maar we wensen haar alle succes van de wereld!
