Novità in Libreria | 15-21 Gennaio

Se seguite anche la pagina Facebook avrete notato che non sempre le riporto anche lì (in gran parte perché me ne dimentico e un po' perché tanto Facebook fa vedere i post al 5% degli iscritti), ma sul blog trovate puntuale ogni settimana un nuovo appuntamento con le uscite consigliate! Se invece volete vedere le pubblicazioni dell'intero anno vi rimando alla pagina Calendario Uscite, che aggiorno ogni volta che trovo qualcosa di nuovo.

Natasha non crede né al caso né al destino. E neppure ai sogni: non si avverano mai. Sua madre dice che le cose succedono per una ragione. Ma Natasha è diversa. Crede piuttosto nella scienza e nella relazione causa-effetto. Ogni azione conduce necessariamente a un'altra e così via. Sono le azioni di ognuno a determinare il destino. Per intenderci, non è il tipo di ragazza che incontra un ragazzo carino in un polveroso negozio di dischi a New York e s'innamora di lui. Eppure è quel che accade, proprio a dodici ore dall'essere rimpatriata in Giamaica insieme alla sua famiglia. Lui si chiama Daniel. È il figlio perfetto, studente modello e sempre all'altezza delle molte aspettative dei genitori. Quando è con Natasha, però, tutto è diverso. Qualcosa in lei gli suggerisce che il destino abbia in serbo un che di speciale - per entrambi. Ed è come se ogni momento della loro vita li avesse preparati solo per vivere questo meraviglioso, singolo istante.

Intrappolati in un supermercato, i fratelli Dean e Alex hanno dovuto imparare a sopravvivere. Insieme ad altri dodici ragazzi hanno costruito un rifugio sicuro, lontano dal caos circostante. Ma questa fragile pace non è destinata a durare. Sapendo che le armi chimiche hanno reso tossica l’aria all’esterno, in grado di trasformare gli esseri umani in creature assetate di sangue, Dean decide di rimanere nel covo insieme con Astrid e alcuni dei ragazzi più piccoli, mentre Alex è determinato a uscire per ritrovare i genitori. Un piccolo gruppo si avventura così nell’oscurità e nella devastazione, approfittando del riparo temporaneo di uno scuolabus. Se riuscissero a raggiungere l’aeroporto di Denver, potrebbero forse ottenere una via per la salvezza. Ma il mondo là fuori è più spaventoso di quanto si sarebbero mai aspettati…


Settimana incredibilmente carente di raccomandazioni fantasy, ma ogni tanto bisogna anche cambiare genere!

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn't dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

They call him father, liberator, warlord, Reaper. But he feels a boy as he falls toward the pale blue planet, his armor red, his army vast, his heart heavy. It is the tenth year of war and the thirty-second of his life.

A decade ago, Darrow was the hero of the revolution he believed would break the chains of the Society. But the Rising has shattered everything: Instead of peace and freedom, it has brought endless war. Now he must risk everything he has fought for on one last desperate mission. Darrow still believes he can save everyone, but can he save himself?

And throughout the worlds, other destinies entwine with Darrow’s to change his fate forever:

A young Red girl flees tragedy in her refugee camp and achieves for herself a new life she could never have imagined.

An ex-soldier broken by grief is forced to steal the most valuable thing in the galaxy—or pay with his life.

And Lysander au Lune, the heir in exile to the sovereign, wanders the stars with his mentor, Cassius, haunted by the loss of the world that Darrow transformed, and dreaming of what will rise from its ashes.

Ellingham Academy is a famous private school in Vermont for the brightest thinkers, inventors, and artists. It was founded by Albert Ellingham, an early twentieth century tycoon, who wanted to make a wonderful place full of riddles, twisting pathways, and gardens. “A place,” he said, “where learning is a game.”
Shortly after the school opened, his wife and daughter were kidnapped. The only real clue was a mocking riddle listing methods of murder, signed with the frightening pseudonym “Truly, Devious.” It became one of the great unsolved crimes of American history.
True-crime aficionado Stevie Bell is set to begin her first year at Ellingham Academy, and she has an ambitious plan: She will solve this cold case. That is, she will solve the case when she gets a grip on her demanding new school life and her housemates: the inventor, the novelist, the actor, the artist, and the jokester. But something strange is happening. Truly Devious makes a surprise return, and death revisits Ellingham Academy. The past has crawled out of its grave. Someone has gotten away with murder.
The two interwoven mysteries of this first book in the Truly Devious series dovetail brilliantly, and Stevie Bell will continue her relentless quest for the murderers in books two and three.

A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…

I've worked a decade for this. I've sold my soul and my reputation. I've lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance.

And then … she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my—

It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine.

Or not.
