Endlich ist es soweit und ich kann eine neue Leseplanungsliste erstellen, dieses Mal für den Winter 2018/2019. Ich gebe zu, dass ich diese Listen wirklich gerne erstellen, auch wenn das Endresultat wie für den Herbst 2018 meistens eher ein Fail denn ein Erfolg ist. Aber diese Listen geben mir einerseits die Möglichkeit, meinen SuB regelmäßig zu durchstöbern und wecken andererseits meine Vorfreude auf die ausgesuchten Bücher. Eine Win-Win-Situation, würde ich sagen.

Winter 2018/2019: Diese 10 Bücher will ich lesen

Auch für meine Leseplanung Winter 2018/2019 habe ich versucht, eine gute Mischung aus neueren Sub-Zugängen und SuB-Leichen zu wählen. Einzige Ausnahme: Es gibt dieses Mal einen ganz frischen Neuzugang auf dieser Liste, nämlich „Queen of Air and Darkness“ von Cassandra Clare – because of reasons. 

Und jetzt, without further ado, hier die zehn Bücher, die ich gern im Winter 2018/2019 lesen möchte.

1. Katherine Arden – The Bear and the Nightingale

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

In a village at the edge of the wilderness of northern Russia, where the winds blow cold and the snow falls many months of the year, an elderly servant tells stories of sorcery, folklore and the Winter King to the children of the family, tales of old magic frowned upon by the church. But for the young, wild Vasya these are far more than just stories. She alone can see the house spirits that guard her home, and sense the growing forces of dark magic in the woods. . .

2. Cassandra Clare – Queen of Air and Darkness

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

Innocent blood has been spilled on the steps of the Council Hall, the sacred stronghold of the Shadowhunters. In the wake of the tragic death of Livia Blackthorn, the Clave teeters on the brink of civil war. One fragment of the Blackthorn family flees to Los Angeles, seeking to discover the source of the disease that is destroying the race of warlocks. Meanwhile, Julian and Emma take desperate measures to put their forbidden love aside and undertake a perilous mission to Faerie to retrieve the Black Volume of the Dead. What they find in the Courts is a secret that may tear the Shadow World asunder and open a dark path into a future they could never have imagined. Caught in a race against time, Emma and Julian must save the world of Shadowhunters before the deadly power of the parabatai curse destroys them and everyone they love.

3. Carrie Hope Fletcher – On the Other Side

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

Your soul is too heavy to pass through this door, 
Leave the weight of the world in the world from before

Evie Snow is eighty-two when she quietly passes away in her sleep, surrounded by her children and grandchildren. It’s the way most people wish to leave the world but when Evie reaches the door of her own private heaven, she finds that she’s become her twenty-seven-year-old self and the door won’t open. Evie’s soul must be light enough to pass through so she needs to get rid of whatever is making her soul heavy. For Evie, this means unburdening herself of the three secrets that have weighed her down for over fifty years, so she must find a way to reveal them before it’s too late. As Evie begins the journey of a lifetime, she learns more about life and love than she ever thought possible, and somehow, some way, she may also find her way back to the only man she ever truly loved . . .

4. Lynn Flewelling – Casket of Souls

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

More than the dissolute noblemen they appear to be, Alec and Seregil are skillful spies, dedicated to serving queen and country. But when they stumble across evidence of a plot pitting Queen Phoria against Princess Klia, the two Nightrunners will find their loyalties torn as never before. Even at the best of times, the royal court at Rhíminee is a serpents’ nest of intrigue, but with the war against Plenimar going badly, treason simmers just below the surface. And that’s not all that poses a threat: A mysterious plague is spreading through the crowded streets of the city, striking young and old alike. Now, as panic mounts and the body count rises, hidden secrets emerge. And as Seregil and Alec are about to learn, conspiracies and plagues have one thing in common: The cure can be as deadly as the disease.

5. Cynthia Hand et. al – My Plain Jane

6. Anna Huchtmann – In Desertum Sortis

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

Zu Anfang seiner Rednerkarriere noch im Einklang mit den althergebrachten Traditionen und unberührt von der Politik, baut er nach und nach eine enge Freundschaft zu seinem Sklaven Corvus auf, beginnt an der jahrhundertealten Ordnung zu zweifeln.

10. Laini Taylor – Days of Blood and Starlight

Kurzbeschreibung: © Amazon:

Once upon a time, an angel and a devil fell in love and dared to imagine a new way of living – one without massacres and torn throats and bonfires of the fallen, without revenants or bastard armies or children ripped from their mothers‘ arms to take their turn in the killing and dying. Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon’s secret temple and dreamed of a world that was like a jewel-box without a jewel – a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.
