De laatste TBR van het jaar alweer! En deze maand kies ik geen enkel boek van mijn fysieke TBR-stapel, maar zal ik via Storytel gaan lezen.
The Summer I Turned Pretty – Jenny Han
Belly measures her life in summers. Everything good, everything magical happens between the months of June and August. Winters are simply a time to count the weeks until the next summer, a place away from the beach house, away from Susannah, and most importantly, away from Jeremiah and Conrad. They are the boys that Belly has known since her very first summer—they have been her brother figures, her crushes, and everything in between. But one summer, one terrible and wonderful summer, the more everything changes, the more it all ends up just the way it should have been all along.
Een zomerse boek op deze lijst, want ik zoek op het moment een luchtig verhaal. Maar mocht iemand nog aanraders op de Storytel app hebben wat betreft winterverhalen dan hoor ik het graag!
It Ends with Us – Colleen Hoover
Sometimes it is the one who loves you who hurts you the most.
Lily hasn’t always had it easy, but that’s never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She’s come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up
— she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily’s life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.
Ryle is assertive, stubborn, maybe even a little arrogant. He’s also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily. And the way he looks in scrubs certainly doesn’t hurt. Lily can’t get him out of her head. But Ryle’s complete aversion to relationships is disturbing. Even as Lily finds herself becoming the exception to his “no dating” rule, she can’t help but wonder what made him that way in the first place.
As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan — her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.
Een boek die al in 2016 is uitgekomen, maar sinds dit jaar heel veel hype heeft gekregen door social media. Ondanks dat ik al veel boeken van Hoover heb gelezen, heb ik nog niet bovenstaande boek gelezen.
Made in Korea – Sarah Suk
There’s nothing Valerie Kwon loves more than making a good sale. Together with her cousin Charlie, they run V&C K-BEAUTY, their school’s most successful student-run enterprise. With each sale, Valerie gets closer to taking her beloved and adventurous halmeoni to her dream city, Paris.
Enter the new kid in class, Wes Jung, who is determined to pursue music after graduation despite his parents’ major disapproval. When his classmates clamor to buy the K-pop branded beauty products his mom gave him to “make new friends,” he sees an opportunity—one that may be the key to help him pay for the music school tuition he knows his parents won’t cover…
What he doesn’t realize, though, is that he is now V&C K-BEAUTY’s biggest competitor.
Stakes are high as Valerie and Wes try to outsell each other, make the most money, and take the throne for the best business in school—all while trying to resist the undeniable spark that’s crackling between them. From hiring spies to all-or-nothing bets, the competition is much more than either of them bargained for.
But one thing is clear: only one Korean business can come out on top.
Naast audioboeken vind ik e-books op Storytel ook prettig, daarom was ik heel erg blij toen van dit boek ook een e-book online kwam.
Flower Crowns and Fearsome Things – Amanda Lovelace
In her new standalone poetry collection, flower crowns & fearsome things, bestselling & award-winning poetess amanda lovelace explores the complexity of femininity through alternating wildflower & wildfire poems.
Within these pages, you will find that each of us has the ability to be both soft & fierce at the same time. there is no need to choose one or the other.
Een nieuwe Lovelace en ik ben heel benieuwd naar hoe haar schrijfstijl is gegroeid.
Submerge – K.Y. Robinson
From the author of The Chaos of Longing comes a powerful second collection in which Robinson uses the metaphor of water to tell a story about achieving wholeness through letting go.
Organized in three sections, Submerge explores immersion in and release from trauma, mental illness, and loss. Part one, “Immerse,” reflects on birth and beginnings while exploring themes of love, self-discovery, and cultural history. Part two, “Drown,” examines mental illness, trauma, and loss. Part three, “Emerge,” takes lessons from water and begins a journey toward healing through self-care and gratitude. Throughout the collection, Robinson’s disarming candor, vivid imagery, and supportive message inspire and empower.
In december ben ik wat drukker wat werk betreft en soms vind ik het dan juist erg fijn om meer poëzie te lezen. Dus vandaar dat ik in december hoop twee dichtbundels te gaan lezen.
Welk boek ben jij sowieso van plan om in de laatste maand van het jaar te gaan lezen?
