drei Neuerscheinungen bis Jahresende, die ich unbedingt lesen möchte

Endlich noch mal ein Artikel, der sich meinem liebsten Thema, den Büchern, widmet. Irgendwie kommen Bücher hier viel zu kurz, obwohl das doch eigentlich ein Buchblog ist.

Es gibt da so ein paar Bücher, auf dessen Erscheinen ich mich freue. Aber es tut mir Leid, denn bei den Büchern handelt es sich nur um englischsprachige. Aber ich bin sicher, dass es zu dem einen oder anderen Buch auch in der nächsten Zeit eine Übersetzung geben wird.

Das sechste Buch aus der Reihe Rivers of London bzw. PC Peter Grant ,”The Hanging Tree*” (Ben Aaronovitch), erscheint am 3. November. Endlich hat das Warten ein Ende. Eine richtig tolle und spannende Reihe!

Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty’s daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour. Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we’re talking about. He’s been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week …Amazon

Ebenfalls im November, nämlich am 15., erscheint “Hi, Anxiety: Life With a Bad Case of Nerves*” von Kat Kinsman. Ein Buch, was mich persönlich interessiert, da ich ja ebenfalls seit ich etwa 14 bin mit Ängsten zu kämpfen habe.

Joining the ranks of such acclaimed accounts as Manic, Brain on Fire, and Monkey Mind, a deeply personal, funny, and sometimes painful look at anxiety and its impact from writer and commentator Kat Kinsman.

Feeling anxious? Can’t sleep because your brain won’t stop recycling thoughts? Unable to make a decision because you’re too afraid you’ll make the wrong one? You’re not alone.

In Hi, Anxiety, beloved food writer, editor, and commentator Kat Kinsman expands on the high profile pieces she wrote for CNN.com about depression, and its wicked cousin, anxiety. Taking us back to her adolescence, when she was diagnosed with depression at fourteen, Kat speaks eloquently with pathos and humor about her skin picking, hand flapping, “nervousness” that made her the recipient of many a harsh taunt. With her mother also gripped by depression and health issues throughout her life, Kat came to live in a constant state of unease—that she would fail, that she would never find love . . . that she would end up just like her mother.

Now, as a successful media personality, Kat still battles anxiety every day. That anxiety manifests in strange, and deeply personal ways. But as she found when she started to write about her struggles, Kat is not alone in feeling like the simple act of leaving the house, or getting a haircut can be crippling. And though periodic medication, counseling, a successful career and a happy marriage have brought her relief, the illness, because that is what anxiety is, remains.

Exploring how millions are affected anxiety, Hi, Anxiety is a clarion call for everyone—but especially women—struggling with this condition. Though she is a strong advocate for seeking medical intervention, Kinsman implores those suffering to come out of the shadows—to talk about their battle openly and honestly. With humor, bravery, and writing that brings bestsellers like Laurie Notaro and Jenny Lawson to mind, Hi, Anxiety tackles a difficult subject with amazing grace.Amazon

Etwas länger muss man noch warten, bis das dritte Buch der Invisible Library-Bücher von Genevieve Cogman rauskommt. “The Burning Page*” heißt es und erscheint am 15. Dezember. Die beiden ersten Bücher habe ich richtig gerne gelesen und umso mehr freue ich mich auf das nächste!

Genau wie die Rivers of London-Reihe ist diese so ganz anders zu den Büchern, die ich sonst lese. Aber Abwechslung muss sein und ich lese in den letzten Monaten ja kaum noch ChickLit. 😉

The third title in Genevieve Cogman’s clever and exciting The Invisible Library series, The Burning Page is an action-packed literary adventure!

When it’s your job to save the day – where do you start?

Librarian spy Irene has standards to maintain, especially while on probation. And absconding from a mission via a besieged building doesn’t look good. But when her escape route home goes up in flames, what’s a spy to do? However, it seems Gates back to the Library are malfunctioning across dozens of worlds. Worse still, her nemesis Alberich is responsible -and he plans to annihilate the Library itself.

Irene and assistant Kai are posted to St Petersburg, to help combat this threat. Here Alberich emerges, as Irene tries to save her friend Vale and foil assassination attempts. Then one incredibly dangerous opportunity to save the Library emerges. Saving herself would be a bonus . . .

Irene’s adventures feature stolen books, secret agents and forbidden societies – think Doctor Who but with librarian spies!Amazon
