Een biografie, manga’s en een YA: het is in iedergeval een afwisselende maand!

Beyond The Story: 10-Year Record of BTS – BTS, Myeongseok Kang
After taking their first step into the world on June 13, 2013, BTS will celebrate the 10th anniversary of their debut in June 2023. They have risen to the peak as an iconic global artist and during this meaningful time, they look back on their footsteps in the first official book. In doing so, BTS nurtures the power to build brighter days and they choose to take another step on a road that no one has gone before.
BTS shares personal, behind-the-scenes stories of their journey so far through interviews and more than three years of in-depth coverage by Myeongseok Kang, who has written about K-pop and other Korean pop culture in various media. Presented chronologically in seven chapters from before the debut of BTS to the present, their vivid voices and opinions harmonize to tell a sincere, lively, and deep story. In individual interviews that have been conducted without a camera or makeup, they illuminate their musical journey from multiple angles and discuss its significance.

Het boek waar ik het meest naar uitkijk deze maand! Ik moet nog een week wachten tot ik ‘m in huis heb, maar ik heb er heel veel zin in om het te gaan lezen.

The Manifesto On How To Be Interesting – Holly Bourne
Apparently I’m boring. A nobody. But that’s all about to change. Because I am starting a project. Here. Now. For myself. And if you want to come along for the ride then you’re very welcome.
Bree is a loser, a wannabe author who hides behind words. Most of the time she hates her life, her school, her never-there parents. So she writes.
But when she’s told she needs to start living a life worth writing about, The Manifesto on How to Be Interesting is born. Six steps on how to be interesting. Six steps that will see her infiltrate the popular set, fall in love with someone forbidden and make the biggest mistake of her life.

Dit boek van Holly Bourne ligt al zo ontzettend lang op mijn TBR plank om gelezen te worden.

My Happy Marriage, Vol. 3 – Akumi Agitogi, Rito Kohsaka, Tsukiho Tsukioka
A “Cinderella”-inspired slow-burn historical romance with a paranormal twist set in Taisho-era Japan!
A browbeaten and mistreated daughter is cast out of her home and sent to audition as a bridal candidate for the heir to one of the most powerful families in the land…
For failing to inherit the boon of unusual power that is the Saimori birthright and bringing shame to the family name, mistreated Miyo is cast out to become another’s problem.
Sent to the Kudo clan—itself preternaturally powerful—as a potential bride for its heir, Kiyoka, Miyo is surprised to experience kindness for the first time in her thus far sad life.
Though the rumors make him out to be cold and haughty, Kiyoka Kudo quickly warms up to the Saimoris’ eldest daughter. Intrigued by the girl who stands worlds apart from the spoiled, social-climbing women who usually vie for his hand, Kiyoka soon comes to regard Miyo with affection.
But though Miyo has found a place—and warmth—in the Kudo household, the fact remains that she is untouched by the power that defines both the Saimori and Kudo clans, making her a failure as a bridal candidate.

Hopelijk kan ik deze volume nog snel lezen voordat de anime van dit verhaal komende donderdag (6 juli) op Netflix staat.

My Special One, Vol. 2 – Momoko Koda
After a mortifying rejection, Sahoko Wakaume has sworn off beautiful boys. But a chance meeting at her family’s restaurant puts her in the sights of gorgeous J-pop star Kouta Kirigaya of the group Like Legend. Sahoko will need all her cynicism to defend herself against Kouta’s tenderhearted and affectionate efforts to win her heart!
Sahoko tells off the nation’s top idol Kouta in her family’s restaurant for assuming that she’s his fan. Instead of being cowed by his mistake, Kouta comes in the next day with albums and VIP tickets to Like Legend’s next concert. Can Sahoko withstand his shining onslaught to charm her?

Na het lezen van het eerste deel wilde ik eigenlijk meteen doorlezen, maar ik moest nog even wachten op de vertaling en die kwam onlangs!

Nog van vorige maand

Aan het volgende boek kwam ik helaas niet toe in de maand juni, dus ik ga een nieuwe poging doen in juli.

Im großen Ganzen hoffnungsvoll – Sarah Marie
Instagram-Poetin Sarah Marie berührt eine ganze Generation, wenn sie über Hoffnung spricht. Dabei schaut sie auch den unschönen Seiten des Lebens ins Auge und wagt Zuversicht in Anbetracht der Herausforderungen unserer Zeit. Gefühlen wie Angst und Verzweiflung werden Mut und Liebe gegenübergestellt, sodass die Botschaft klar ist: Das Kapitel mag schwierig, die Wolken dunkel sein – doch da folgt noch eine Seite, auf der die Sonne wieder scheint. Mit ihren gefühlvollen Gedichten hat die Spoken-Word-Künstlerin Sarah Marie schon mit ihrem ersten Buch unzählige junge Menschen erreicht. Auch Im großen Ganzen hoffnungsvoll trifft wieder genau ins Herz und lässt niemanden unbewegt. Sarah Marie schenkt Trost spendende Poesie in einer schwierigen Zeit.

Poëzie is een fijne afwisseling tussen de manga’s en biografie door. Ook een bonus dat ik met dit boek mijn Duits hopelijk kan verbeteren.

Welk boek hoop jij sowieso te lezen in juli?
