Engelska böcker som utkommer dec18-jan19 som jag vill läsa!

Diane Setterfield skrev "The Thirteenth Tale" ("Den trettonde historien") som utkom 2006 och blev en bästsäljare. Minns att jag själv gillade boken och är därför mycket nyfiken på hennes kommande bok som ges ut 4.12.2018.
"A dark midwinter’s night in an ancient inn on the Thames. The regulars are entertaining themselves by telling stories when the door bursts open on an injured stranger. In his arms is the drowned corpse of a little child.

Hours later the dead girl stirs, takes a breath and returns to life.

Is it a miracle?

Is it magic?

Or can it be explained by science?"
En helt obekant författare för mig, men när jag läste handlingen fastnade jag direkt! Boken utkommer 1.12.2018.
"On their first date back in law school, Natalie and Will Clarke bonded over drinks, dinner and whether they could get away with murder. Now married, they’ll put the latter to the test when an unchecked danger in their community places their son in jeopardy. Working as a criminal defense attorney, Nat refuses to rely on the broken legal system to keep her family safe. She knows that if you want justice…you have to get it yourself.

Shocked to discover Nat’s taken matters into her own hands, Will has no choice but to dirty his, also. His family is in way too deep to back down now. He’s just not sure he recognizes the woman he married. Nat’s always been fiercely protective, but never this ruthless or calculating. With the police poking holes in their airtight plan, what will be the first to fall apart: their scandalous secret—or their marriage?"
Jag har tidigare läst, och älskat, "Introvert Doodles" av Marzi Wilson och ser framemot hennes bok om ångest, som garanterat är både igenkännande, rolig och ärlig. "Kind of coping" utkommer 1.1.2019.
"If you struggle with anxiety, you may feel like it’s you against the world all the time. Sometimes, your anxiety can be too much to handle all at once—wouldn’t it be nice to have someone around that understood exactly what you were going through?

Meet Marzi! She struggles with anxiety just like you. In Kind of Coping, join Marzi as she (kind of) copes with her own anxiety from day to day, finding the humor in her condition with this collection of funny, encouraging, and supportive comics that show you the best you can do sometimes is just kind of cope—and that’s totally OK!

Whether it’s a panic attack or an awkward social snafu, Marzi knows what you are going through. With over 150 full-color doodles that deliver hope and inspiration, unconditional support, and big laughs, let Marzi share her journey with you."
Jag läste "A quiet girl in a noisy world" nyligen av Debbie Tung och blev därför så glad att höra att en ny bok är på kommande. Bästa av allt är att den handlar om böcker! Utkommer 1.1.2019.
"Book Love is a gift book of comics tailor-made for tea-sipping, spine-sniffing, book-hoarding bibliophiles. Debbie Tung’s comics are humorous and instantly recognizable—making readers laugh while precisely conveying the thoughts and habits of book nerds. Book Love is the ideal gift to let a book lover know they’re understood and appreciated."
Jag tyckte Karen M. McManus bok "One of us is lying" var helt okej, så jag är beredd att ge henne en till chans! Utkommer 8.1.2019.
"Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery's never been there, but she's heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

The town is picture-perfect, but it's hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone's declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she's in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous--and most people aren't good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it's safest to keep your secrets to yourself."
Hoppas ni också fick något tips av de böcker jag ser framemot!

Boknyheter jag vill läsa - hösten 2018

Min önskelista inför hösten blir längre hela tiden! Här kommer några böcker som jag ser framemot, hoppas ni också fastnar för någon av dem.
Just before I died av S.K. Tremayne
Why did you do that to me Mummy, don’t you love me?

Kath lives with her husband Adam and daughter Lyla in a desolate stone longhouse deep in Dartmoor National Park. She likes her life the moors are beautiful, if bleak and she counts herself as happy, even if they struggle with money, and work, and her daughter's shyness.

But one day Kath wakes up from a coma, with a vague memory of a near-fatal car accident. She hugs her daughter close, likewise her husband Adam. But there’s something wrong. Adam seems furious with her and Lyla is acting evermore strangely. They should be delighted to see her alive, snatched from certain death. But they won't meet her gaze

Then Kath learns that the car crash wasn't an accident, and her whole life collapses into a world of panic, and danger.
The summer wives av Beatriz Williams
In the summer of 1951, Miranda Schuyler arrives on elite, secretive Winthrop Island in Long Island Sound as a naive eighteen year old, still reeling from the loss of her father in the Second World War. Although a graduate of the exclusive Foxcroft Academy in Virginia, Miranda has always lived on the margins of high society. When her beautiful mother marries Hugh Fisher, whose summer house on Winthrop overlooks the famous lighthouse, Miranda is catapulted into a heady new world of pedigrees and cocktails, status and swimming pools. Isobel Fisher, Miranda’s new stepsister—all long legs and world-weary bravado, engaged to a wealthy Island scion—is eager to draw Miranda into the arcane customs of Winthrop society.

But beneath the Island’s patrician surface, there are really two clans—the summer families with their steadfast ways and quiet obsessions, and the working class of Portuguese fishermen and domestic workers who earn their living on the water and in the laundries of the summer houses. Uneasy among Isobel's privileged friends, Miranda finds herself drawn to Joseph Vargas, whose father keeps the lighthouse with his mysterious wife. In summer, Joseph helps his father in the lobster boats, but in the autumn he returns to Brown University, where he's determined to make something of himself. Since childhood, Joseph has enjoyed an intense, complex friendship with Isobel Fisher, and has a catastrophe that will shatter Winthrop’s hard-won tranquility and banish Miranda from the Island for nearly two decades.

Now, in the summer of 1969, Miranda returns at last, as a renowned Shakespearean actress hiding a terrible heartbreak. On its surface, the Island remains the same—determined to keep the outside world from its shores, fiercely loyal to those who belong. But the formerly powerful Fisher family is a shadow of itself, and Joseph Vargas has recently escaped the prison where he was incarcerated for the murder of Miranda’s stepfather eighteen years earlier. What’s more, Miranda herself is no longer a naive teenager, and she begins a fierce, inexorable quest for justice to the man she once loved—even if it means uncovering every last one of the secrets that bind together the families of Winthrop Island.
The Story Collector: A New York Public Library Book av Kristin O'Donnell Tubb
The Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler meets Harriet the Spy in this middle-grade historical fiction novel inspired by the real life of Viviani Joffre Fedeler, born and raised in the New York Public Library.

Eleven-year-old Viviani Fedeler has spent her whole life in the New York Public Library. She knows every room by heart, except the ones her father keeps locked. When Viviani becomes convinced that the library is haunted, new girl Merit Mubarak makes fun of her. So Viviani decides to play a harmless little prank, roping her older brothers and best friend Eva to help out.

But what begins as a joke quickly gets out of hand, and soon Viviani and her friends have to solve two big mysteries: Is the Library truly haunted? And what happened to the expensive new stamp collection? It's up to Viviani, Eva, and Merit (reluctantly) to findout.
An Unwanted Guest av Shari Lapena
A weekend retreat at a cozy mountain lodge is supposed to be the perfect getaway . . . but when the storm hits, no one is getting away

It's winter in the Catskills and Mitchell's Inn, nestled deep in the woods, is the perfect setting for a relaxing--maybe even romantic--weekend away. It boasts spacious old rooms with huge woodburning fireplaces, a well-stocked wine cellar, and opportunities for cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, or just curling up with a good murder mystery.

So when the weather takes a turn for the worse, and a blizzard cuts off the electricity--and all contact with the outside world--the guests settle in for the long haul.

Soon, though, one of the guests turns up dead--it looks like an accident. But when a second guest dies, they start to panic.

Within the snowed-in paradise, something--or someone--is picking off the guests one by one. And there's nothing they can do but hunker down and hope they can survive the storm.

Modernistas höstkatalog 2018: vilka böcker vill jag ha?

Ett av mina favoritförlag Modernista ger ut säsongskataloger med kommande böcker. Hösten 2018 ser mycket intressant ut. De böcker jag vill lägga vantarna på är:
De förlorade orden av Robert MacFarlane

Det var en gång, när ord började försvinna från barnens språk. Orden försvann så långsamt att ingen först märkte det. Blåklocka, björnbär, ekollon och huggorm.

Ord som är borta nu. En gång var de viktiga för barn, för att beskriva naturen runt dem; för att formulera ett landskap som i tusentals år utgjort grunden för de minstas lek. Men kontakten med naturen är glesväxt nu annat pockar på uppmärksamhet.

De förlorade orden återupprättar kontakten med de ord som gått i ide. En hyllning till jordens egna sensationer fylld av dikter och gåtor som leder till naturens skattkammare. En förtrollad bok, för alla åldrar.

Boken är rikt illustrerad med Jackie Morris akvareller, som röstats fram som årets vackraste av engelska bokhandlare och som även ställts ut på The Fondling Museum i London.

Neverworld av Marisha Pessl

Beatrice Hartley har inga planer för sommaren förutom den hemliga återföreningen med hennes fem tidigare bästa vänner. En gång i tiden, på Darrow-Harker School, var de det tuffaste gänget i staden - de vackra, de hippa, de som andra ville vara. Men när Jim, som var gruppens kreativa geni, dog förändrades allt.

Ett år efter examen återvänder Beatrice till Wincroft, den herrgård vid kusten där vännerna tillbringat så många nätter och delat så många tankar tillsammans hemligheter, förälskelser och planer i hopp om att få svar på den fråga som värker i henne: Vad visste egentligen hennes vänner om Jims död?

Kvällen fylls av haltande skämt och obekväm tystnad, och svaret på frågan tycks avlägset. De en gång så nära vännerna är förändrade splittrade och osäkra. Det är för sent. Men när natten går mot morgon rasar åskan, och en mystisk man knackar på dörren. En man som berättar något som inte borde vara möjligt.
