This morning, Kady thought breaking up with Ezra was the hardest thing she’d have to do. This afternoon, her planet was invaded.
The year is 2575, and two rival megacorporations are at war over a planet that’s little more than a speck at the edge of the universe. Now with enemy fire raining down on them, Kady and Ezra—who are barely even talking to each other—are forced to evacuate with a hostile warship in hot pursuit.
But their problems are just getting started. A plague has broken out and is mutating with terrifying results; the fleet’s AI may actually be their enemy; and nobody in charge will say what’s really going on. As Kady hacks into a web of data to find the truth, it’s clear the only person who can help her is the ex-boyfriend she swore she’d never speak to again.
Told through a fascinating dossier of hacked documents—including emails, maps, files, IMs, medical reports, interviews, and more—Illuminae is the first book in a heart-stopping trilogy about lives interrupted, the price of truth, and the courage of everyday heroes.

No one expects a princess to be brutal. And Lada Dragwlya likes it that way. Ever since she and her gentle younger brother, Radu, were wrenched from their homeland of Wallachia and abandoned by their father to be raised in the Ottoman courts, Lada has known that being ruthless is the key to survival. She and Radu are doomed to act as pawns in a vicious game, an unseen sword hovering over their every move. For the lineage that makes them special also makes them targets.

Lada despises the Ottomans and bides her time, planning her vengeance for the day when she can return to Wallachia and claim her birthright. Radu longs only for a place where he feels safe. And when they meet Mehmed, the defiant and lonely son of the sultan, Radu feels that he’s made a true friend—and Lada wonders if she’s finally found someone worthy of her passion.

But Mehmed is heir to the very empire that Lada has sworn to fight against—and that Radu now considers home. Together, Lada, Radu, and Mehmed form a toxic triangle that strains the bonds of love and loyalty to the breaking point.

Baseball wasn t supposed to be a game of life and death
The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.
I tried to stay away. I couldn t.
Then, the team started losing.
Women started dying.
And everything in my perfect world broke apart.

There’s no such thing as safe in a city at war, a city overrun with monsters. In this dark urban fantasy from author Victoria Schwab, a young woman and a young man must choose whether to become heroes or villains—and friends or enemies—with the future of their home at stake. The first of two books.

Kate Harker and August Flynn are the heirs to a divided city—a city where the violence has begun to breed actual monsters. All Kate wants is to be as ruthless as her father, who lets the monsters roam free and makes the humans pay for his protection. All August wants is to be human, as good-hearted as his own father, to play a bigger role in protecting the innocent—but he’s one of the monsters. One who can steal a soul with a simple strain of music. When the chance arises to keep an eye on Kate, who’s just been kicked out of her sixth boarding school and returned home, August jumps at it. But Kate discovers August’s secret, and after a failed assassination attempt the pair must flee for their lives.

Von "Illuminae" wurde in den letzten Monaten so viel gesprochen, dass ich es selbst mal lesen wollte. Ihr glaubt gar nicht wie groß und dick dieses Buch in Wirklichkeit ist :O Aber es ist so toll gestaltet, dass ich richtig begeistert bin von der Aufmachung und mich schon sehr auf den Inhalt freue.
"And I Darken" hatte ich in der Buchhandlung spontan in der Hand und war von der Kurzbeschreibung so angetan, dass ich es mir spontan bei Thalia bestellt habe (da es dort um ca. 6€ günstiger war).
"Moonshot" habe ich durch eine Empfehlung entdeckt und "This Savage Song" hatte ich mir vorbestellt, da es sich nach einer spannenden Story anhört.

Die 16-jährige Scharfschützin Amani will nichts mehr, als Dustwalk, einem Kaff mitten in der Wüste, den Rücken zu kehren. Bei einem Schießwettbewerb, der Amani die Freiheit bringen soll, kreuzt Jin ihren Weg: ein faszinierender Fremder, der von den Schergen des Sultans verfolgt wird. Jin soll zu den Rebellen gehören, die den abtrünnigen Prinzen Ahmed unterstützen. Amani und Jin werden Reisegefährten wider Willen und kämpfen bald ums Überleben – gegen magische Djinn, gegen die Soldaten des Sultans und eine mysteriöse, tödliche Waffe. Unversehens steckt Amani mitten in einer Rebellion, die das Schicksal ihres Landes entscheiden könnte und ihre Gefühle für Jin offenbart …

Emmy hat es satt, ständig in Watte gepackt zu werden. Surfen oder auf Partys gehen kann sie nur hinter dem Rücken ihrer Eltern. Seit zehn Jahren geht das so, seit damals, als der Nachbarjunge entführt wurde. Und auch nachdem Oliver zurückgekehrt ist, ändert sich daran nichts. Dabei will Emmy einfach nur Zeit mit Oliver verbringen. Auf den Wellen reiten. Glücklich sein. Aber die Ereignisse der Vergangenheit haben nicht nur Schatten auf ihr Leben geworfen, sondern auch auf das ihrer Eltern. Emmy spürt: Um glücklich zu werden, muss sie ihr Leben selbst in die Hand nehmen.

"Amani - Rebellin des Sandes" war eine der Neuerscheinungen, auf die ich diesen Monat am meisten gespannt war und netterweise wurde mir dieses Exemplar von der Verlagsgruppe Random House (cbt) zur Verfügung gestellt :)
"Emmy & Oliver" stand schon länger auf meiner Wunschliste, genauso wie "Flirt mit Nerd", sodass ich mir diese beiden Bücher bei Medimops gegönnt habe :D

While spacing out in Chemistry class, Lily scribbles some of her favorite song lyrics onto her desk. The next day, she finds that someone has continued the lyrics on the desk, and added a message to her. Intrigue!
Soon, Lily and her anonymous pen pal are exchanging full-on letters -- sharing secrets, recommending bands, and opening up to each other. Lily realizes she's kind of falling for this letter writer. Only who is he? As Lily attempts to unravel the mystery, and juggle school, friends, crushes, and her crazy family, she discovers that matters of the heart can't always be spelled out...

SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE WHO HURTS YOU THE MOST. Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true. Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He's also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle's complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan - her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

When a bestselling debut novel from mysterious author J. Colby becomes the literary event of the year, Emiline reads it reluctantly. As an adjunct writing instructor at UC San Diego with her own stalled literary career and a bumpy long-term relationship, Emiline isn’t thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of a young and gifted writer.

Yet from the very first page, Emiline is entranced by the story of Emerson and Jackson, two childhood best friends who fall in love and dream of a better life beyond the long dirt road that winds through their impoverished town in rural Ohio.

That’s because the novel is patterned on Emiline’s own dark and desperate childhood, which means that “J. Colby” must be Jase: the best friend and first love she hasn’t seen in over a decade. Far from being flattered that he wrote the novel from her perspective, Emiline is furious that he co-opted her painful past and took some dramatic creative liberties with the ending.

The only way she can put her mind at ease is to find and confront “J. Colby,” but is she prepared to learn the truth behind the fiction?

"P.S. I Like You", "It Ends With Us" & "Swear on this Life" waren Vorbestellungen auf Thalia, die diesen Monat bei mir eingezogen sind.
Ersteres habe ich bereits verschlungen (die Rezension findet ihr *hier*) und auf die beiden anderen freue ich mich schon sehr, besonders auf das neueste von Colleen Hoover, da ich bis jetzt nur gutes darüber gehört habe!

One Player tamed. One nerd girl satisfied. And one more major life decision to make. When Will fell for Hanna, her quirky sense of humor and fierce dedication to her career were part of the attraction. (Not to mention her coy newbie attitude toward sex and her willingness to let him teach her everything.) But when the job offers start rolling in for her—and oh, they do—Hanna has trouble deciding what she wants, where they should live, and how much she should burden Will with the decision. Magic between the sheets is only one part of a relationship...getting on the same page is quite another altogether.

If Skylar Evans were a typical Creek View girl, her future would involve a double-wide trailer, a baby, and the graveyard shift at Taco Bell. But after graduation, the only thing separating straightedge Skylar from art school is three months of summer until Skylar's mother loses her job, and Skylar realizes her dreams may be slipping out of reach.

Josh had a different escape route: the Marines. But after losing his leg in Afghanistan, he returned home, a shell of the cocksure boy he used to be. 

What brings Skylar and Josh together is working at the Paradise a quirky motel off California's Highway 99. Despite their differences, their shared isolation turns into a friendship and soon, something deeper.

Nemesis (n.) 1) An opponent or rival whom a person cannot best or overcome.

2) A person’s undoing

3) Joshua Templeman

Lucy Hutton and Joshua Templeman hate each other. Not dislike. Not begrudgingly tolerate. Hate. And they have no problem displaying their feelings through a series of ritualistic passive aggressive maneuvers as they sit across from each other, executive assistants to co-CEOs of a publishing company. Lucy can’t understand Joshua’s joyless, uptight, meticulous approach to his job. Joshua is clearly baffled by Lucy’s overly bright clothes, quirkiness, and Pollyanna attitude.

Now up for the same promotion, their battle of wills has come to a head and Lucy refuses to back down when their latest game could cost her her dream job…But the tension between Lucy and Joshua has also reached its boiling point, and Lucy is discovering that maybe she doesn’t hate Joshua. And maybe, he doesn’t hate her either. Or maybe this is just another game.

Torn between duty and survival, nothing can be the same.
Everything Ivy Morgan thought she knew has been turned on its head. After being betrayed and then nearly killed by the Prince of the Fae, she’s left bruised and devastated—and with an earth-shattering secret that she must keep at all costs. And if the Order finds out her secret, they’ll kill her. Then there’s Ren Owens, the sexy, tattooed Elite member of the Order who has been sharing Ivy’s bed and claiming her heart. Their chemistry is smoking hot, but Ivy knows that Ren has always valued his duty to the Order above all else—he could never touch her if he knew the truth. That is, if he let her live at all. Yet how can she live with herself if she lies to him? But as the Fae Prince begins to close in, intent on permanently opening the gates to the Otherworld, Ivy is running out of options. If she doesn’t figure out who she can trust—and fast—it’s not only her heart that will be torn apart, but civilization itself.

"Beautiful Boss" durfte in meiner Sammlung natürlich nicht fehlen, genauso wenig wie "Torn", das neueste Buch  von Jennifer L. Armentrout, welches der zweite Teil ihrer Wicked-Saga ist.
"I'll Meet You There" und "The Hating Game" habe ich mir dann spontan bestellt, nachdem mich eine Rezension dazu angefixt hat. Kennt ihr das?

Als Tochter eines Cops hat Kennedy Ryan gelernt, stets einen kühlen Kopf zu bewahren. Doch kaum, dass die Vergangenheit ihres Dads sie einholt und Kennedy zu ihrem Schutz nach Kalifornien geschickt wird, gerät alles außer Kontrolle. Ausgerechnet der Mann, mit dem sie einen unglaublichen One-Night-Stand hatte, soll sich um sie kümmern. Dabei hat sie sich geschworen, nie wieder jemanden in die Nähe ihres Herzens zu lassen …

Ivy ist die beste Freundin des Football-Stars Gray Grayson. Die beiden schreiben sich regelmäßig, seit Gray sich Ivys Auto geliehen hat, während diese im Ausland studiert. Dann kehrt Ivy nach Hause zurück, und mit dem heißen Prickeln, das augenblicklich zwischen ihnen entsteht, haben weder Gray noch Ivy gerechnet. Doch Ivy folgt einer goldenen Regel: keine Beziehung mit einem Klienten ihres Vaters – der auch Gray als Agent vertritt. Aber sie hat nicht mit Grays Charme und seinen ganz besonderen Überzeugungskünsten gerechnet ...

Was macht einen eigentlich zum Nerd? Na klar … heimlich Comics lesen im Bett. Zumindest fängt es so an, glaubt Maddie – blond, beliebt und Freundin des heißesten Footballstars der Schule. Manche Dinge bleiben also besser geheim. Das funktioniert auch ganz gut, bis zu dem Tag, als ihr Lieblings-Comic es nicht in ihren Briefkasten schafft. Maddie muss ernsthaft höchstpersönlich in den freakigen Comic-Laden in der Stadt. Wenn das ihre Freundinnen wüssten! Incognito, mit Riesen-Sonnenbrille und Kapuze, trifft sie dort aber Logan, den süßesten, tollsten Nerd überhaupt. Für Maddie beginnt ein verrückter Sommer voller Flirts und Versteckspiele!

Zu guter Letzt habe ich "Trusting Liam - Tief in meinem Herzen" dank Blogg dein Buch zugeschickt bekommen, dessen Inhaltsangabe wirklich sehr spannend klingt.
Und den zweiten Teil der "Game On"-Reihe "Game On - Chancenlos" habe ich mir dann in der Buchhandlung gekauft, da ich bald mit Band 1 fertig bin und die Reihe auf jeden Fall weiterlesen möchte.

Welche Bücher sind bei dir im August neu eingezogen?
Und lässt du dich auch so leicht von Rezensionen anfixen?


  1. Das ist ja wirklich einiges :D Ich kenne nur Flirt mit Nerd und das fand ich leider ziemlich enttäuschend. Aber It Ends With Us möchte ich auch unbedingt noch lesen :)

    Liebst, Lara.

    1. Hi Lara,
      schade das dir "Flirt mit Nerd" nicht so gefallen hat...hab schon von einigen gehört, dass es nicht so toll sein soll. Hoffe trotzdem, dass es mir vielleicht doch gefällt :)

      Liebe Grüße

  2. wow, Sibel, da hast du aber wieder einmal zugeschlagen :D
    Leider sind die meisten auf englisch, daher hab ich sie noch nicht gelesen, außer eben Amani, was ich richtig toll fand. Dabei fällt mir ein, dass ich die Rezi bald mal posten sollte :D
    Viel Spaß mit den Büchern! LG Tina
