#Libri in lingua che mi hanno fatto brillare gli occhi♥

La newsletter di aprile di Goodreads ha portato alla mia attenzione quattro libri molto interessanti ancora in lingua con forti possibilità di arrivare anche qui da noi!♥

Partiamo con Claudia Gray, che ho apprezzato per la saga Evernight ispirata a Romeo e Giulietta e di cui vorrei leggere la trilogia Firebird, questa volta si ispira allo spazio e qui storco il naso. Non amo molto le storie troppo di fantascienza e in particolare Defy the Stars mi ricorda molto Star Wars.. ma tant'è che la scrittura della Gray mi piace e magari se questa saga verrà portata in Italia, potrei decidere di dargli una chance. La cover però spacca!

Titolo: Defy the Stars
Serie: Defy the Stars #1
Autrice: Claudia Gray
Casa Editrice: Little
Pagine: 512
Pubblicazione: 4 aprile 2017

She’s a soldier.
Noemi Vidal is a seventeen years old and sworn to protect her planet, Genesis. She’s willing to risk anything—including her own life. To their enemies on Earth, she’s a rebel.
He’s a machine.
Abandoned in space for years, utterly alone, Abel has advanced programming that’s begun to evolve. He wants only to protect his creator, and to be free. To the people of Genesis, he’s an abomination.
Noemi and Abel are enemies in an interstellar war, forced by chance to work together as they embark on a daring journey through the stars. Their efforts would end the fighting for good, but they’re not without sacrifice. The stakes are even higher than either of them first realized, and the more time they spend together, the more they’re forced to question everything they’d been taught was true.

Becky Albertalli è sbarcata in Italia con il romanzo Non so chi sei ma io sono qui che ha riscosso parecchio successo e mentre mi appresto a leggerlo, mi segno anche questa sua nuova creazione!

Titolo: The Upside of Unrequited
Autrice: Becky Albertalli
Casa Editrice: Balzer & Bray

Pubblicazione: 11 aprile 2017

Seventeen-year-old Molly Peskin-Suso knows all about unrequited love. No matter how many times her twin sister, Cassie, tells her to woman up, Molly can’t stomach the idea of rejection. So she’s careful. Fat girls always have to be careful. Then a cute new girl enters Cassie’s orbit, and for the first time ever, Molly’s cynical twin is a lovesick mess. Meanwhile, Molly's totally not dying of loneliness—except for the part where she is. Luckily, Cassie's new girlfriend comes with a cute hipster-boy sidekick. If Molly can win him over, she'll get her first kiss and she'll get her twin back. There's only one problem: Molly's coworker, Reid. He's a chubby Tolkien superfan with a season pass to the Ren Faire, and there's absolutely no way Molly could fall for him. Right?

The Upside of Unrequited

Infine i primi due romanzi di Evelyn Skye della serie The Crown's Game, che oltre alle cover accattivanti hanno anche una trama che mi ha incuriosita. Un po' storico-fantasy è ambientanto in Russia, dove soltanto pochi padroneggiano la magia e potranno aiutare lo zar a battere l'Impero Ottomano. Ma per decidere chi sarà il fortunato, i partecipanti si dovranno sfidare all'ultimo sangue nel gioco della corona..Non ho capito se sarà stile duello o stile arena Hunger Games, fatto sta che me li segno entrambi!

Titolo: The Crown's Game
Serie: The Crown's Game #1
Autrice: Evelyn Skye
Casa Editrice: Balzer & Bray
Pagine: 399
Pubblicazione: 17 maggio 2016

Vika Andreyeva can summon the snow and turn ash into gold. Nikolai Karimov can see through walls and conjure bridges out of thin air. They are enchanters—the only two in Russia—and with the Ottoman Empire and the Kazakhs threatening, the tsar needs a powerful enchanter by his side. And so he initiates the Crown’s Game, an ancient duel of magical skill—the greatest test an enchanter will ever know. The victor becomes the Imperial Enchanter and the tsar’s most respected adviser. The defeated is sentenced to death. Raised on tiny Ovchinin Island her whole life, Vika is eager for the chance to show off her talent in the grand capital of Saint Petersburg. But can she kill another enchanter—even when his magic calls to her like nothing else ever has? For Nikolai, an orphan, the Crown’s Game is the chance of a lifetime. But his deadly opponent is a force to be reckoned with—beautiful, whip-smart, imaginative—and he can’t stop thinking about her. And when Pasha, Nikolai’s best friend and heir to the throne, also starts to fall for the mysterious enchantress, Nikolai must defeat the girl they both love…or be killed himself.

Titolo: The Crown's Fate
Serie: The Crown's Game #2
Autrice: Evelyn Skye
Casa Editrice: Balzer & Bray
Pagine: 400
Pubblicazione: 16 maggio 2017

Russia is on the brink of great change. Pasha’s coronation approaches, and Vika is now the Imperial Enchanter, but the role she once coveted may be more difficult—and dangerous—than she ever expected. Pasha is grappling with his own problems—his legitimacy is in doubt, the girl he loves loathes him, and he believes his best friend is dead. When a challenger to the throne emerges—and with the magic in Russia growing rapidly—Pasha must do whatever it takes to keep his position and protect his kingdom. For Nikolai, the ending of the Crown’s Game stung deeply. Although he just managed to escape death, Nikolai remains alone, a shadow hidden in a not-quite-real world of his own creation. But when he’s given a second chance at life—tied to a dark price—Nikolai must decide just how far he’s willing to go to return to the world. With revolution on the rise, dangerous new magic rearing up, and a tsardom up for the taking, Vika, Nikolai, and Pasha must fight—or face the destruction of not only their world but also themselves.
