Meine Libbywunschliste Nr.2

Vor einiger Zeit habe ich euch schon mal einpaar Bücher vorgestellt, die ich über Libby, aka eine Möglichkeit online Bücher aus einer Bibliothek zu lesen, lesen will, jetzt ist es Zeit euch ein paar mehr zu zeigen. Meinen ersten Beitrag zu meiner Libbywunschliste findet ihr hier.

Hot Dog Girl von Jennifer Dugan

Klappentext

Elouise (Lou) Parker is determined to have the absolute best, most impossibly epic summer of her life. There are just a few things standing in her way: * She’s landed a job at Magic Castle Playland . . . as a giant dancing hot dog. * Her crush, the dreamy Diving Pirate Nick, already has a girlfriend, who is literally the Princess of the park. But Lou’s never liked anyone, guy or otherwise, this much before, and now she wants a chance at her own happily ever after. * Her best friend, Seeley, the carousel operator, who’s always been up for anything, suddenly isn’t when it comes to Lou’s quest to set her up with the perfect girl or Lou’s scheme to get close to Nick. * And it turns out that this will be their last summer at Magic Castle Playland–ever–unless she can find a way to stop it from closing. Still, Lou’s absolutely positive she’s just one good plan away from getting this summer back on track. Jennifer Dugan’s sparkling debut coming-of-age queer romance stars a princess, a pirate, a hot dog, and a carousel operator who find love–and themselves–in unexpected people and unforgettable places.

Dieses Buch klingt so unterhaltsam und gut, dass ich es einfach lesen muss. Außerdem habe ich nur queer, coming-of-age und princess gelesen und wusste, dass das mein Buch ist. Und natürlich das Cover. Wer kann bei diesem Cover schon nein sagen?

“Emergency contact” von Mary H. K. Choi

Klappentext

For Penny Lee high school was a total nonevent. Her friends were okay, her grades were fine, and while she somehow managed to land a boyfriend, he doesn’t actually know anything about her. When Penny heads to college in Austin, Texas, to learn how to become a writer, it’s seventy-nine miles and a zillion light years away from everything she can’t wait to leave behind. Sam’s stuck. Literally, figuratively, emotionally, financially. He works at a café and sleeps there too, on a mattress on the floor of an empty storage room upstairs. He knows that this is the god-awful chapter of his life that will serve as inspiration for when he’s a famous movie director but right this second the seventeen bucks in his checking account and his dying laptop are really testing him. When Sam and Penny cross paths it’s less meet-cute and more a collision of unbearable awkwardness. Still, they swap numbers and stay in touch—via text—and soon become digitally inseparable, sharing their deepest anxieties and secret dreams without the humiliating weirdness of having to see each other.

Okay, ehrlich gesagt habe ich gerade den Klappentext zum erstem mal gelesen. Ich will das Buch immer noch lesen, was ziemlich gut ist. Ich habe es letztes jahr überall gesehen und dachte so langsam wird es Zeit, dass ich es auch lese, besonders weil die Autorin demnächst ihr zweites Buch veröffentlicht und dann wieder alles darüber reden werden. Und auch hier finde ich das Cover einfach nur wunderschön.

“Wilder girls” von Rory Power

Klappentext

It’s been eighteen months since the Raxter School for Girls was put under quarantine. Since the Tox hit and pulled Hetty’s life out from under her. It started slow. First the teachers died one by one. Then it began to infect the students, turning their bodies strange and foreign. Now, cut off from the rest of the world and left to fend for themselves on their island home, the girls don’t dare wander outside the school’s fence, where the Tox has made the woods wild and dangerous. They wait for the cure they were promised as the Tox seeps into everything. But when Byatt goes missing, Hetty will do anything to find her, even if it means breaking quarantine and braving the horrors that lie beyond the fence. And when she does, Hetty learns that there’s more to their story, to their life at Raxter, than she could have ever thought true.

Wenn man seine Lieblingsbooktuber über Bücher fangirlen hört, dann kann man doch nicht anders als auch diese Bücher lesen zu wollen, oder? Zum Glück habe ich mir die Bücher nicht gekauft, sondern leihe sie mir nur aus, so kann ich nichts falsch machen. Dieses Buch wird mein erster Thriller auf Englisch und ich bin schon gespannt, wie gut ich durch das Buch durchkommen werde.

“Wicked fox” von Kat Cho

Klappentext

Eighteen-year-old Gu Miyoung has a secret–she’s a gumiho, a nine-tailed fox who must devour the energy of men in order to survive. Because so few believe in the old tales anymore, and with so many evil men no one will miss, the modern city of Seoul is the perfect place to hide and hunt. But after feeding one full moon, Miyoung crosses paths with Jihoon, a human boy, being attacked by a goblin deep in the forest. Against her better judgment, she violates the rules of survival to rescue the boy, losing her fox bead–her gumiho soul–in the process. Jihoon knows Miyoung is more than just a beautiful girl–he saw her nine tails the night she saved his life. His grandmother used to tell him stories of the gumiho, of their power and the danger they pose to men. He’s drawn to her anyway. When he finds her fox bead, he does not realize he holds her life in his hands.

Auch dieses Buch habe ich überall gesehen. Und es wird immer noch überall hoch gelobt, deshalb will ich auch dieses Buch lesen. Es soll Koreanische Kultur enthalten, was ich sehr spannend finde, da ich darüber so gut wie nichts weiß. Ein Märchen von dem alle glauben, dass es nicht stimmt und dann sich als wahr herausstellt, dass klingt doch einfach nur spannend.

“American Gods” von Neil Gaiman

Klappentext

It is the story of Shadow—released from prison just days after his wife and best friend are killed in an accident—who gets recruited to be bodyguard, driver, and errand boy for the enigmatic trickster, Mr. Wednesday. So begins Shadow’s dark and strange road trip, one that introduces him to a host of eccentric characters whose fates are mysteriously intertwined with his own. For, beneath the placid surface of everyday life, a storm is brewing—an epic war for the very soul of America—and Shadow is standing squarely in its path.

Eigentlich will ich die Amazon Prime Serie sehen, aber der Bücherwurm in mir, kann nicht anders, als mich zuerst zum lesen des Buches zu bringen. Die erste Folge habe ich schon gesehen, einfach um herauszufinden, ob ich die Serie mag und ich freue mich schon sehr auf das Buch, auch wenn es mit um die 800 Seiten nicht gerade kurz ist.
