Parliamo di ARC

 Book's News 

Buon martedì a tutti!
Come state? Io domenica sera ho ricevuto una bruttissima notizia, di quelle a cui è difficile credere, che è difficile accettare anche perché sono irreversibili, quindi in questi giorni non ci sono molto con la testa.
Potrei anche evitare di fare un post oggi, ma ho deciso invece di parlarvi di ARC (Advanced Reader Copy)  straniere che ho richiesto o che mi ispirano.
Iniziamo con quelle che m'ispirano ma su cui sono ancora indecisa oppure che non ho richiesto perché momentaneamente il titolo non è disponibile per ulteriori richieste.

Storm and Fury
Jennifer L. Armentrout

Editore: Harper Teen
Genere:Paranormal Romance New Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 11/06/2019

Trama: Eighteen-year-old Trinity Marrow may be going blind, but she can see and communicate with ghosts and spirits. Her unique gift is part of a secret so dangerous that she’s been in hiding for years in an isolated compound fiercely guarded by Wardens—gargoyle shape-shifters who protect humankind from demons. If the demons discover the truth about Trinity, they’ll devour her, flesh and bone, to enhance their own powers.
When Wardens from another clan arrive with disturbing reports that something out there is killing both demons and Wardens, Trinity’s safe world implodes. Not the least because one of the outsiders is the most annoying and fascinating person she’s ever met. Zayne has secrets of his own that will upend her world yet again—but working together becomes imperative once demons breach the compound and Trinity’s secret comes to light. To save her family and maybe the world, she’ll have to put her trust in Zayne. But all bets are off as a supernatural war is unleashed…

Ricordiamo tutti la serie The Dark Elements della Armentrout e sono certa che tutte abbiamo fatto il tifo per Roth, però Zayne non ha avuto il suo lieto fine. Questo è il volume che ci racconta cosa è successo al guardiano dopo gli eventi di Lieve come il respiro.

Kelly Coon

Editore: Delacorte Press
Genere: Fantasy Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 29/10/2019

Trama: In the walled city-state of Alu, Kammani wants nothing more than to become the accomplished healer her father used to be before her family was cast out of their privileged life in shame.
When Alu's ruler falls deathly ill, Kammani’s beautiful little sister, Nanaea, is chosen as one of three sacred maidens to join him in the afterlife. It’s an honor. A tradition. And Nanaea believes it is her chance to live an even grander life than the one that was stolen from her.
But Kammani sees the selection for what it really is—a death sentence.
Desperate to save her sister, Kammani schemes her way into the palace to heal the ruler. There she discovers more danger lurking in the sand-stone corridors than she could have ever imagined and that her own life—and heart—are at stake. But Kammani will stop at nothing to dig up the palace’s buried secrets even if it means sacrificing everything…including herself.
Sono sincera di questo sono rimasta colpita dalla copertina (non è davvero bellissima?!) e non avevo neanche letto la trama all'inizio...però al momento non è disponibile per ulteriori richieste, quindi attendiamo!

The Evil Queen
Gena Showalter

Editore: Harper Teen
Genere: Fantasy Retelling Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 25/06/2019

Trama:Far, far away, in the realm of Enchantia, creatures of legend still exist, magic is the norm and fairy tales are real. Except, fairy tales aren’t based on myths and legends of the past—they are prophecies of the future.
Raised in the mortal realm, Everly Morrow has no idea she’s a real-life fairy-tale princess—until she manifests an ability to commune with mirrors.
Look. See… What will one peek hurt?
Soon, a horrifying truth is revealed. She is fated to be Snow White’s greatest enemy, the Evil Queen.
With powers beyond her imagination or control, Everly returns to the land of her birth. There, she meets Roth Charmaine, the supposed Prince Charming. Their attraction is undeniable, but their relationship is doomed. As the prophecy unfolds, Everly faces one betrayal after another, and giving in to her dark side proves more tempting every day. Can she resist, or will she become the queen—and villain—she was born to be?
The battle between good and evil is on.
Nuova serie per la Showalter e non potevo non metterlo in wl; al momento le copie arc sono esaurite ma sicuramente lo leggerò perché la Showalter è una bravissima autrice e perché sono nel mood giusto per leggere i retelling.

Stephanie Garber

Editore: Flatiron Books
Genere: Fantasy Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 07/05/2019

Trama: A love worth fighting for. A dream worth dying for. An ending worth waiting for.
It’s been two months since the Fates were freed from a deck of cards, two months since Legend claimed the throne for his own, and two months since Tella discovered the boy she fell in love with doesn’t really exist.
With lives, empires, and hearts hanging in the balance, Tella must decide if she’s going to trust Legend or a former enemy. After uncovering a secret that upends her life, Scarlett will need to do the impossible. And Legend has a choice to make that will forever change and define him.
Caraval is over, but perhaps the greatest game of all has begun. There are no spectators this time: only those who will win, and those who will lose everything.
Welcome, welcome to Finale. All games must come to an end…
Questo è in wl e ho richiesto l'arc ma non mi è ancora stata approvata, quindi non so se mi arriverà. Sono curiosa di sapere come va a finire la storia della Garber anche se dal secondo volume mi aspettavo qualcosa in più sono curiosa e quindi lo leggerò, prima o poi.

Hearts Made for Breaking
Jen Klein

Editore: Random House Books for Young Readers
Genere: Romance Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 30/04/2019

Trama:Reel him in. Make him love you. Break his heart? Think How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days for contemporary YA romance readers. A sure bet for anyone in search of a heartwarming, laugh-out-loud love story that will charm their socks off.
Lark is the queen of breakups. When she ends things with a boy, there are never any hard feelings. Sometimes he doesn't even realize that she broke up with him. And that's exactly how Lark likes it. What's the point in hurting people? Or getting hurt?
Her best friends, Cooper and Katie, think Lark's dating pattern is tragic. How can she know what love is if she refuses to take risks? They dare her to finally have a bad breakup, one that matters. To appease her friends, Lark selects "Undateable" Ardy Tate as her target. He's a mysterious challenge and completely different from any guy she's ever dated. Can she win him over? Will she break his heart? Or will the Queen of Breakups have her heart broken?
Fall in love with another YA romance from Jen Klein, the author of Shuffle, Repeat, which SLJ praised as "addictive. Fans of Deb Caletti and Sarah Dessen will enjoy this sweet romance."
Di questo non ho chiesto l'arc però ogni tanto torno su NetGalley a leggere le recensioni perché continua a ispirarmi...manca oramai poco alla pubblicazione, vedrò se leggerlo davvero prima o poi.

Ora passiamo a 3 ARC che ho richiesto e che leggerò in prossimità della pubblicazione.

Shadow Frost
Coco Ma

Editore: Blackstone Publishing
Genere: Fantasy Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 01/10/2019

Trama: In the kingdom of Axaria, a darkness rises.
Some call it a monster, laying waste to the villagers and their homes.
Some say it is an invulnerable demon summoned from the deepest abysses of the Immortal Realm.
Many soldiers from the royal guard are sent out to hunt it down. Not one has ever returned.
When Asterin Faelenhart, princess of Axaria and heir to the throne, discovers that she may hold the key to defeating the mysterious demon terrorizing her kingdom, she vows not to rest until the beast is slain.
With the help of her friends and the powers she wields—though has yet to fully understand—Asterin sets out to complete a single task. The task that countless trained soldiers have failed. To kill it.
But as they hunt for the demon, they unearth a plot to assassinate the princess herself instead. Asterin and her friends begin to wonder how much of their lives has been lies, especially when they realize that the center of the web of deceit might very well be themselves. With no one else to turn to, they are forced to decide just how much they are willing to sacrifice to protect the only world they have ever known.
That is, of course, if the demon doesn’t get to them first.
Ho richiesto questo libro principalmente perché la cover mi piace davvero tantissimo e perché sono nel pieno del periodo fantasy; lo leggerò probabilmente quest'estate visto che uscirà a ottobre, quindi ve ne parlerò più avanti!

Beasts of the Frozen Sun
Jill Criswell

Editore: Blackstone Publishing
Genere:Fantasy Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 06/08/2019

Trama: Every child of Glasnith learns the last words of Aillira, the god-gifted mortal whose doomed love affair sparked a war of gods and men, and Lira of clan Stone knows the story better than most. As a descendant of Aillira and god-gifted in her own right, she has the power to read people’s souls, to see someone’s true essence with only a touch of her hand.
When a golden-haired warrior washes up on the shores of her homeland—one of the fearful marauders from the land of the Frozen Sun—Lira helps the wounded man instead of turning him in. After reading his soul, she realizes Reyker is different than his brethren who attack the coasts of Glasnith. He confides in her that he’s been cursed with what his people call battle-madness, forced to fight for the warlord known as the Dragon, a powerful tyrant determined to reignite the ancient war that Aillira started.
As Lira and Reyker form a bond forbidden by both their clans, the wrath of the Dragon falls upon them and all of Glasnith, and Lira finds herself facing the same tragic fate as her ancestor. The battle for Lira’s life, for Reyker’s soul, and for their peoples’ freedom has only just begun …
La richiesta di questo libro invece è stata un po' diversa dal mio solito iter, perché da una parte mi intrigava la storia dall'altra ero titubante e allora sono andata a vedere su goodreads le valutazioni di chi già lo aveva letto e la media è di 4.1, un gran bel risultato per gli standard e allora mi sono convinta ed eccolo qui. L'ho inserito nella tbr di giugno.

The Storm Crow
Kalyn Josephson

Editore: Sourcebooks Fire
Genere:Fantasy Young Adult
Data di pubblicazione: 09/07/2019

Trama: That terrible night has thrown Princess Anthia into a deep depression. Her sister Caliza is busy running the kingdom after their mother's death, but all Thia can do is think of all she has lost.
But when Caliza is forced to agree to a marriage between Thia and the crown prince of Illucia, Thia is finally spurred into action. And after stumbling upon a hidden Crow egg in the rubble of a rookery, she and her sister devise a dangerous plan to hatch the egg in secret and get back what was taken from them.
Questo è invece stato un segno del destino perché lo avevo richiesto tempo fa (forse febbraio?!) ma ancora non avevo avuto risposta e alla BCBF avevo visto il post allo stand della Sourcebooks e la sera mi è arrivata la mail come la richiesta era stata accettata. Primo libro di una nuova serie e primo romanzo per l'autrice, mi aveva colpito per la classica storia di un trono e di due sorelle che devono combattere per riavere ciò che era loro. Anche questo è nella tbr di giugno.

Qualcuno di questi volumi vi ispira? Volete saperne di più?
