Deze TBR noem ik: ik-die-misschien-te-veel-genres-leest. Haha, genoeg lees plezier voor de maand april!


The Reappearance of Rachel Price – Holly Jackson
Lights. Camera. Lies.
18-year-old Bel has lived her whole life in the shadow of her mom’s mysterious disappearance. Sixteen years ago, Rachel Price vanished and young Bel was the only witness, but she has no memory of it. Rachel is gone, long presumed dead, and Bel wishes everyone would just move on.
But the case is dragged up from the past when the Price family agree to a true crime documentary. Bel can’t wait for filming to end, for life to go back to normal. And then the impossible happens. Rachel Price reappears, and life will never be normal again.
Rachel has an unbelievable story about what happened to her. Unbelievable, because Bel isn’t sure it’s real. If Rachel is lying, then where has she been all this time? And – could she be dangerous? With the cameras still rolling, Bel must uncover the truth about her mother, and find out why Rachel Price really came back from the dead . . .
From world-renowned author Holly Jackson comes a mind-blowing masterpiece about one girl’s search for the truth, and the terror in finding out who your family really is.

Jackson haar boeken vind ik heerlijk om naar te luisteren. Het boek komt uit/is uitgekomen wanneer ik mijn kamer renoveer. Komt dat even goed uit! Uren luisterplezier tijdens het schilderen, schoonmaken en inrichten. Er zullen ook andere klussen worden gedaan, maar die zijn een stuk minder geschikt om daarbij een hoofdtelefoon op te hebben.

The Crimson Moth – Kristen Ciccarelli
On the night Rune’s life changed forever, blood ran in the streets. Now, in the aftermath of a devastating revolution, witches have been diminished from powerful rulers to outcasts ruthlessly hunted due to their waning magic, and Rune must hide what she is.
Spending her days pretending to be nothing more than a vapid young socialite, Rune spends her nights as the Crimson Moth, a witch vigilante who rescues her kind from being purged. When a rescue goes wrong, she decides to throw the witch hunters off her scent and gain the intel she desperately needs by courting the handsome Gideon Sharpe – a notorious and unforgiving witch hunter loyal to the revolution – who she can’t help but find herself falling for.
Gideon loathes the decadence and superficiality Rune represents, but when he learns the Crimson Moth has been using Rune’s merchant ships to smuggle renegade witches out of the republic, he inserts himself into her social circles by pretending to court her right back. He soon realizes that beneath her beauty and shallow façade, is someone fiercely intelligent and tender who feels like his perfect match. Except, what if she’s the very villain he’s been hunting?

Yeah, nieuwe werk van Ciccarelli! Ik heb genoten van haar andere verhalen en kijk daarom enorm uit naar dit boek.


Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul – Nikita Gill
Reimagining traditional tales, this empowering collection of stories, poems and beautiful hand-drawn illustrations gives Once Upon a Time a much-needed modern makeover. Gone are the gender stereotypes of obliging lovers, violent men and girls that need rescuing. Instead, lines blur between heroes and villains and you’ll meet brave princesses, a new kind of wolf lurking in the concrete jungle and a courageous Gretel who can bring down monsters on her own.

Ondanks dat ik graag poëzie lees en ook graag nieuwe werken lees, heb ik nog nooit een boek van Nikita Gill opgepakt. Onlangs deed ik een grote bestelling voor verschillende boeken waaronder dit werk. Ik denk dat het een fijne afwisseling is met de andere verhalen op deze TBR.


Omniscient Reader’s Viewpoint – singNsong, Sleepy-C
As a struggling office worker, Dokja Kim’s sole joy in life is an online novel so obscure that he’s its only reader. Then one day the story comes to an end…and so does the world. People all around the globe suddenly find themselves being massacred by horrific monsters or pitted against each other in sadistic scenarios straight out of the novel. However, only Dokja is aware that this is merely the first chapter of what is to come. Knowing that devastating plot twists are on the horizon, he can no longer afford to sit back as a reader–it’s time for Dokja to step up and write his own destiny!

Deze serie viel me op toen ik voorbij zag komen dat Jisoo van BlackPink wordt overwogen voor de verfilming van een van de personages. Daardoor leerde ik dat deze manhwa ontzettend populair is in Korea. Ongeacht of ze in de verfilming komt, heb ik tot de verschijning in ieder geval genoeg leesplezier.

Van vorige maand

What You Are Looking For Is in the Library – Michiko Aoyama
What are you looking for?”
This is the famous question routinely asked by Tokyo’s most enigmatic librarian, Sayuri Komachi. Like most librarians, Komachi has read every book lining her shelves—but she also has the unique ability to read the souls of her library guests. For anyone who walks through her door, Komachi can sense exactly what they’re looking for in life and provide just the book recommendation they never knew they needed to help them find it.
Each visitor comes to her library from a different juncture in their careers and dreams, from the restless sales attendant who feels stuck at her job to the struggling working mother who longs to be a magazine editor. The conversation that they have with Sayuri Komachi—and the surprise book she lends each of them—will have life-altering consequences.

Inmiddels heb ik al een flinke stapel boeken gelezen van Aziatische auteurs, maar volgens mij nog nooit van een Japanse auteur? Als ik manga’s niet meereken uiteraard. Met bovenstaande boek hoop ik daar verandering in te brengen.
Vorige maand kwam ik helaas niet aan dit boek toe, dus deze maand doe ik graag een nieuwe poging.

Welk boek hoop je sowieso te lezen deze maand?
