Bokelskerinnen har en ukentlig spalte kalt Fremtidige favoritter, hvor hun skriver litt om bøker hun ønsker seg, gleder seg til å lese og er spent på. Her er noen jeg gleder meg til:
A Princess of Mars av Edgar Rice Burroughs (1912)
Etter å ha sett John Carter fikk jeg lyst til å lese boka den var basert på. Noe jeg ikke var klar over var at A Princess of Mars er en klassiker innen science-fiction.
The first published book by the creator of Tarzan of the Apes that introduced the world to intergalactic Civil War soldier, John Carter.
Two years before Edgar Rice Burroughs became a worldwide celebrity with the publication of Tarzan of the Apes and its twenty-two sequels, which together have sold more than 30 million copies, he published the futuristic sci-fi romance, A Princess of Mars. A Princess of Mars tells the story of John Carter, a Civil War veteran who inexplicably finds himself held prisoner on the planet Mars by the Green Men of
Thark. With Dejah Thoris, the princess of another clan on Mars, John Carter must fight for their freedom and save the entire planet from destruction as the life-sustaining Atmosphere Factory slowly grinds to a halt.
A Princess of Mars is the first in Burroughs' eleven book Barsoon series, following the continued adventures of John Carter.
Hysteria av Megan Miranda (05.02.2013)
Jeg likte Fractured godt så jeg ser fram til å lese mer av forfatteren. Det gjør jo ikke noe at det er en psykologisk thriller heller.
Mallory's life is falling apart. Her boyfriend was stabbed. He bled to death in her kitchen. Mallory was the one who stabbed him. But she can't remember
what happened that night. She only remembers the fear . . .
When Mallory's parents send her away to a boarding school, she thinks she can escape the gossip and the threats. But someone, or something, has followed her. There's the hand that touches her shoulder when she's drifting off to sleep. A voice whispering her name. And everyone knows what happened. So when a pupil is found dead, Mallory's name is on their lips. Her past can be forgotten but it's never gone. Can Mallory live with that?
Paper Valentine av Brenna Yovanoff (08.01.2013)
Nydelig og guffent cover, også høres den bare spennende ut.
PAPER VALENTINE, in
which a girl haunted by the troubled ghost of her best friend finds
herself sucked into a darkly mesmerizing string of murders, in which a
serial killer who leaves a paper-heart 'valentine' on his victims'
bodies draws ever closer.
Scarlet av Marissa Meyer (05.02.2013)
Cinder var den første boka jeg leste i år og den er blandt favorittene, så jeg gleder meg veldig til bok 2 i serien kommer. Er ikke coveret flott?
Book two, Scarlet, is based on Little Red Riding Hood. It continues Cinder’s story as she attempts to escape Queen Levana’s vengeance and learn more about her past. The story also introduces readers to Scarlet, a girl living in southern France whose grandmother has mysteriously disappeared. In order to find her, Scarlet seeks the help of Wolf, a street fighter with more than a few mysteries of his own.
Sybil Exposed av Debbie Nathan (12.06.2012)
Historien om Sybil og kontroversene MPD rundt fasinerte meg da jeg gikk på videregående, og filmen med Sally Field i hovedrollen gav meg mareritt så da jeg så det var kommet en bok om saken kom den høyt opp på leselista med en gang.
Sybil Exposed is the New York Times bestselling book that offers a new perspective on the smash hit book and film, Sybil, and on multiple personality disorder itself.
Journalist Debbie Nathan gives proof that the allegedly true story was largely fabricated. Nathan reveals what really powered the legend: a trio of women — the willing patient, her ambitious shrink, and the imaginative journalist who spun their story into bestseller gold.From irresponsible therapeutic practices, to calculated business decisions, the story Nathan unfurls is full of corrosive sexism, unchecked ambition, and shaky theories of psychoanalysis exuberantly and drastically practiced. It is the story of how one modest young woman’s life turned psychiatry on its head and radically changed the course of
therapy, and our culture, as well.
