Diese Woche gab es wieder drei neue Bücher in meinem Briefkasten. Einmal Faking Itvon Cora Carmack, den zweiten Teil von Losing It, der Cades Geschichte erzählt. Er hat mir in Losing It ziemlich leid getan, deshalb hoffe ich, dass er in Faking It sein Happy End bekommt. Dann noch Gameboard of the Gods von Richelle Mead, den ersten Band ihrer neuen dystopischen Serie Age of X. Ich bin schon gespannt ob mich dieses Buch genauso fesseln wird wie die bisherigen Bücher der Autorin. Und zum Schluss noch Hopelessvon Colleen Hoover, auf das ich mich besonders gefreut habe. Von Slammed war ich total begeistert und hoffe Hopeless kann da mithalten. Bei dem witzigen und emotionalen Stil von Colleen Hoover bin ich aber ziemlich zuversichtlich ;-)
In a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists, Justin March lives in exile.

Raised in an aristocratic caste, Mae is now a member of the military's most elite and terrifying tier, a soldier with enhanced reflexes and skills. Justin and Mae are assigned to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders and soon realize that their discoveries have exposed them to terrible danger. As their investigation races forward, unknown enemies and powers greater than they can imagine are gathering in the shadows, ready to reclaim the world in which humans are merely game pieces on their board.
