Nun landete ich in den letzten vier Tagen gleich zweimal ungeahnt im Dussmann und fand NATÜRLICH gleich wieder einen Haufen an Büchern die mich wirklich sehr interessieren - und da ich es mir nicht leisten kann möchte ich es bestimmt nur um so mehr haben.
Das Einzige was ich wirklich gut an der Situation finde: Mein SUB schrumpft derzeit, ich greife zu Büchern die ewig rumlagen da ich immer sehr viel mehr gespannt auf andere war. Und momentan bin ich positiv überrascht von dem, was bei mir noch so rumstand.
When Liz Drake's best friend vanishes, nothing can stop her nightmares. Driven by the certainty he needs her help, she crosses a continent to search for him. She finds Blake comatose in a Vancouver hospital, victim of a mysterious accident that claimed his lover's life - in her dreams he drowns. Blake's new circle of artists and mystics draws her in, but all of them are lying or keeping dangerous secrets. Soon nightmare creatures stalk the waking city, and Liz can't fight a dream from the daylight world: to rescue Blake she must brave the darkest depths of the Dreamlands. Even the attempt could kill her, or leave her mind trapped or broken. And if she succeeds, she must face the monstrous Yellow King, whose slave Blake is on the verge of becoming forever.

Ich stehe eigentlich mit Naomi Novik auf Kriegsfuß. Zudem wurde mir eben bewusst ich hielt es vorhin in Hand, dabei ist es noch gar nicht erschienen.
Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, ambitious wizard, known only as the Dragon, to keep the wood's powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman must be handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as being lost to the wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows - everyone knows - that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia - all the things Agnieszka isn't - and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But no one can predict how or why the Dragon chooses a girl. And when he comes, it is not Kasia he will take with him.
The magical story of a floating circus and two young women in search of a home.
The sea has flooded the earth. North lives on a circus boat, floating between the scattered islands that remain. She dances with her beloved bear, while the rest of the crew trade dazzling and death-defying feats for food from the islanders. However, North has a secret that could capsize her life with the circus.
Callanish lives alone in her house in the middle of the ocean, with only the birds and the fish for company. As penance for a terrible mistake, she works as a gracekeeper, tending the graves of those who die at sea. What drove her from home is also what pulls her towards North.
When a storm creates a chance meeting between the two girls, their worlds change. They are magnetically drawn to one another, and the promise of a new life. But the waters are treacherous, and the tide is against them.

Es ist mal wieder so deutlich, eigentlich fällt es mir jetzt gerade erst auf, dass ich typischerweise mal wieder nur von hübschen Covern angezogen werde. Aber ich liebe einfach grafisch ansprechend gestaltete Bücher, ich mag es wenn das Gesamtkonzept von Hülle und Inhalt stimmt.
