Fremtidige favoritter #10: Stuebordversjonen

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. Denne uken har jeg valgt å ta bøkene som ligger på stuebordet som ikke er begynt på ennå (heldigvis bare en stabel isteden for tre som tidligere i sommer).

Forbidden av Ted Dekker og Tosca Lee

Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.

Fleeing pursuit, with only moments to live, a young man named Rom stumbles into possession of a vial of blood and a piece of cryptic writing. When consumed, the blood will bring him back to life. When decoded, the message will lead him on a perilous journey that will require him to abandon everything he has ever known and awaken humanity to the transforming power of true life and love.

But the blood will also resurrect hatred, ambition, and greed.

Set in a terrifying, medieval future, where grim pageantry masks death, this tale of dark desires and staggering stakes peels back the layers of the heart for all who dare to take the ride.

Shadow on the Wall av Pavarti K. Tyler

Recai Osman: Muslim, philosopher, billionaire and Superhero?

Controversial and daring, Shadow on the Wall details the transformation of Recai Osman from complicated man to Superhero. Forced to witness the cruelty of the Morality Police in his home city of Elih, Turkey, Recai is called upon by the power of the desert to be the vehicle of change. Does he have the strength to answer Allah's call or will his dark past and self doubt stand in his way?

Pulling on his faith in Allah, the friendship of a Jewish father-figure and a deeply held belief that his people deserve better, Recai Osman must become The SandStorm.

Pushing the Limits av Katie McGarry

No one knows what happened the night Echo Emerson went from popular girl with jock boyfriend to gossiped-about outsider with "freaky" scars on her arms. Even Echo can't remember the whole truth of that horrible night. All she knows is that she wants everything to go back to normal.But when Noah Hutchins, the smoking-hot, girl-using loner in the black leather jacket, explodes into her life with his tough attitude and surprising understanding, Echo's world shifts in ways she could never have imagined. They should have nothing in common. And with the secrets they both keep, being together is pretty much impossible.

Yet the crazy attraction between them refuses to go away. And Echo has to ask herself just how far they can push the limits and what she'll risk for the one guy who might teach her how to love again.

Narc av Crissa-Jean Chappell

"You're going to hate me forever when you learn my secret." 

Seventeen-year-old stoner Aaron Foster was offered a choice: go to jail or turn undercover narc to find the dealer who's funneling drugs into Miami's Palm Hammock High School. But Aaron has never been good at getting close to people. He's human wallpaper, a stoner wastecase who's obsessed with video games and street magic. 

With a cop from Narcotics breathing down his neck, Aaron gets himself invited to parties where the deals go down. To get close to the school's biggest players, Aaron lies to everyone--most of all, the cute but troubled Morgan Baskin. With the Everglades party on Halloween night--and a planned drug bust there--just days away, Aaron realizes that he's falling hard for Morgan . . . and trying to protect her could cost him everything.

Throne of Glass av Sarah J. Maas

After serving out a year of hard labor in the salt mines of Endovier for her crimes, 18-year-old assassin Celaena Sardothien is dragged before the Crown Prince. Prince Dorian offers her her freedom on one condition: she must act as his champion in a competition to find a new royal assassin.

Her opponents are men-thieves and assassins and warriors from across the empire, each sponsored by a member of the king's council. If she beats her opponents in a series of eliminations, she'll serve the kingdom for three years and then be granted her freedom.

Celaena finds her training sessions with the captain of the guard, Westfall, challenging and exhilirating. But she's bored stiff by court life. Things get a little more interesting when the prince starts to show interest in her... but it's the gruff Captain Westfall who seems to understand her best.

Then one of the other contestants turns up dead... quickly followed by another. Can Celaena figure out who the killer is before she becomes a victim? As the young assassin investigates, her search leads her to discover a greater destiny than she could possibly have imagined.

Every Day av David Levithan

With his new novel, David Levithan has pushed himself to new creative heights. He has written a captivating story that will fascinate readers as they begin to comprehend the complexities of life and love in A’s world, as A and Rhiannon seek to discover if you can truly love someone who is destined to change every day

Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn't easy--especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can't remember loving. Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn't seem to matter...when there may not be a future.

  2. Jeg har også lest litt forskjellige meninger om Throne of Glass, så jeg gleder meg til din omtale etterhvert. Hver dag står i hylla og skal leses snart. Jeg har ikke lest noe av Levithan før, så jeg er spent ;-)

    1. Du kan glede deg til Levithan, han skriver med følsomhet og humor. :)

  3. Mange spennende bøker i bokstaveleg din ;) Sv: Nei, livet er for kort til å lese "dårlige" bøker. Men jeg har ikke gitt helt opp, kanskje tar jeg den frem ved en senere anledning :)

    1. Ja, best å heller legge de bøkene som ikke passer til side og kose seg med de som gjør det. :)

  4. Oops, autocorrect på iPaden, he he :) Det skal selvfølgelig være bokstabelen, og ikke bokstaveleg :)

    1. Hehe, autocorrect kan være artig den. :)

  5. Jeg håper du liker Pushing the limits langt bedre enn meg, Ann Kristin :)

    1. Boka har blitt sammenlignet med Perfect Chemistry så forventningene er høye. :)

    2. Det var mine også... likte Perfect Chemistry veldig godt.

    3. Hmmm, kanskje jeg skulle skru ned forventningene litt?

    4. Jeg vil ihvertfall anbefale deg det ;) Hvor ligger den i lesebunken? Jeg er selvsagt veldig nysgjerrig på hva du ender opp med å tenke om denne boken.

    5. Jeg har litt entusiasme problemer med fullføring av bøker akkurat nå, men den ligger ganske høyt. Tenkte jeg skulle prøve meg på ei ny bok i helga, kanskje jeg skulle ta Pushing the Limits.
