Titel: The Smallest Part | Serie: – | Forfatter: Amy Harmon | Udgivelse: 13. Februar

“In the end, only three things matter. How much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.” 
– Unknown

It was a big lie. The biggest lie she’d ever told. It reverberated through her head as she said it, ringing eerily, and the girl behind her eyes—the girl who knew the truth—screamed, and her scream echoed along with the lie.
“Are you in love with Noah, Mercedes?” Cora asked. “I mean . . . I know you love him. You’ve been friends forever. We all have. But are you in love with him?”
If it had been anyone else—anyone—Mercedes would have stuck out her chest, folded her skinny arms, and let her feelings be known. She would have claimed him. But it was Cora. Brave, beautiful, broken Cora, and Cora loved Noah too.
So Mercedes lied.
And with that lie, she lost him. With that lie, she sealed her fate.
She was the best friend, the bridesmaid, the godmother, the glue. She was there for the good times and the bad, the ups and the downs, the biggest moments and the smallest parts. And she was there when it all came crashing down.
This is the tale of the girl who didn’t get the guy.

When her seventeenth summer solstice arrives, Brienna desires only two things: to master her passion and to be chosen by a patron.

Growing up in the southern Kingdom of Valenia at the renowned Magnalia House should have prepared her for such a life. While some are born with an innate talent for one of the five passions—art, music, dramatics, wit, and knowledge—Brienna struggled to find hers until she belatedly chose to study knowledge. However, despite all her preparations, Brienna’s greatest fear comes true—the solstice does not go according to plan and she is left without a patron.

Months later, her life takes an unexpected turn when a disgraced lord offers her patronage. Suspicious of his intent, and with no other choices, she accepts. But there is much more to his story, and Brienna soon discovers that he has sought her out for his own vengeful gain. For there is a dangerous plot being planned to overthrow the king of Maevana—the archrival kingdom of Valenia—and restore the rightful queen, and her magic, to the northern throne. And others are involved—some closer to Brienna than she realizes.

With war brewing between the two lands, Brienna must choose whose side she will remain loyal to—passion or blood. Because a queen is destined to rise and lead the battle to reclaim the crown. The ultimate decision Brienna must determine is: Who will be that queen?

Historien indeholder mange tråde, som bliver spundet ud gennem handlingen, hvor Stella langsomt opdager en hemmelighed, som handler om liv og død.

Uddrag af bogen: Pludselig var det Veronica, der stirrede tilbage. Jeg trådte instinktivt væk fra hende. Hun smilede skævt, diabolsk. Hendes hud var en udvasket blå farve, som om hun havde været død i timevis. En stribe blod piblede frem ved hendes hårgrænse og gled ned ad øreflippen og dryppede på stengulvet. Det blødte fra adskillige steder i hendes ansigt. Som et blødende genfærd. Hun åbnede munden og hviskede: ”Stella, du leger med døden,” hvorefter hun greb mig om håndleddet og skreg: ”Nu er det din tur!”

De fire kvinder mødes af et paradisisk uberørt og frodigt landskab. Men snart må de sande, at noget er helt galt.

Titel: Evig Vinter | Serie: Fire Folk #1 | Forfatter: Louise Roholte | Forlag: mellemgaard | Udgivelse: 26. Februar

En evig vinter har sænket sig over skovene, og Ivalu og hendes flok lider i kulden, mens de forsøger at finde føde i det golde landskab. De er ved at miste troen på, at foråret vil komme, og de skal tage stilling til, om de vil risikere at dø af sult i de skove, de holder så meget af, eller om de skal forlade dem i håbet om at finde et sted, der vil behandle dem mildere. Sne og frost har også begravet fiskene under en tyk dyne af is ved søerne, hvor Anfred bor med sin flok. Fiskene kan ikke flygte, men de andre dyr er draget mod nord, og flokken overvejer at tage afsked med den verden, de kender. De to folk beslutter uafhængigt af hinanden, at en vandring mod nord er deres bedste chance for overlevelse – ganske uvidende om, at deres prøvelser først lige er begyndt.

Uddrag af bogen  Det må være midt på dagen, men det er svært at vide, for solen er kun fremme i korte glimt, og der er så mørkt mellem træerne, at hun bruger sin hukommelse mere end sine øjne, når hun skal finde de sikre stier på bakkerne. Ivalus fødder bliver hurtigere, da hun føler sig overbevist om, at hun bevæger sig i den rigtige retning, og hun springer over en væltet stamme og hopper fra side til side under de krogede træer. De mange forhøjninger langs stien ligner bunker af sne, men hun ved, at det er sten i alle størrelser og udformninger, og deres grå overflader var dækket af mos, før sneen faldt. Nu er stenene hvide som resten af skovbunden, og Ivalu undgår at træde på dem, for de er glatte og utilregnelige med deres skjulte sprækker og skarpe kanter.

Læseåret 2018 – Hvad bringer det?

2018 bliver et år, hvor det kommer til at være lidt anderledes herinde. Jeg har besluttet mig for, at jeg i 2018 vil skære drastisk ned på mængden af anmeldereksemplarer. Nu er det jo ikke fordi jeg ikke vil læse de bøger jeg takker ja til – ellers ville jeg jo ikke spørge om at få et anmeldereksemplar, men jeg må erkende at jeg slet ikke får læst så meget som jeg gjorde inden jeg fik fuldtidsjob, og så får jeg simpelthen stress af at have 10-15 anmeldereksemplarer liggende – det er tre måneders læsestof lige der.

Det er jo lidt noget andet hvis jeg selv køber bøgerne. Så er der ingen deadline, og ingen forlag der bliver sure over at man er for længe om at få en bog anmeldt. Jeg vil gerne slippe for at skulle have de der deadlines hængende over hovedet, og for at det skal kunne lade sig gøre har jeg lidt indset, at jeg bliver nødt til at skære ned. Så kraftig nedskæring på anmeldereksemplarer – og så må jeg købe dem selv hvis det er.

Og altså, jeg er mega glad for at forlagene og forfatterne gerne vil sende mig bøger. Kære forlag og forfattere, i er awesome ❤ Men jeg bliver simpelthen nødt til at komme af med nogle af de ting der stresser mig, inden jeg ender i en evig reading slump, og så er det altså sådan her det bliver nødt til at være. Men jeg elsker jer stadig, I promise ❤

Jeg vil nemlig virkelig gerne læse flere engelske bøger. Der bliver udgivet vildt meget fantastisk på dansk, og jeg kan da også godt lide at læse på dansk – men jeg kan også godt lide at læse på engelsk, og jeg har nok savnet det lidt i 2017.

Mit læsemål for i år har jeg sat til 50 bøger. Det er ikke ret meget i forhold til hvad jeg plejer, men jeg gider virkelig ikke mere læsestress, og det får jeg altså lidt af at være bagud på min udfordring. Det tæller både lydbøger og fysiske bøger, og jeg er sikker på at jeg nok skal nå det, for det ER ret lavt sat.

Det er sat lavt, fordi jeg 1. februar starter på nyt job. Jeg vil gerne give den maks gas og yde en skide god indsats, og de første 3-4 måneder forventer jeg bliver udmattende og op ad bakke, men forhåbentlig også lærerige, så jeg kan få noget af den erfaring jeg så gerne vil have. Men det betyder jo så at jeg nok ikke får læst så meget, jeg tænker der godt kunne komme mange dage hvor jeg bare kollapser på sofaen og falder i søvn når jeg kommer hjem, og det skal der også være plads til.

Derudover, så skal der ryddes ud på mine TBR-hylder. 50+ bøger er for mange, og jeg kan mærke at der er mange af dem som jeg med 99% sikkerhed aldrig kommer til at læse. Jeg får også lidt stress af at der er så mange, men samtidig kan jeg ikke rigtig få mig selv til at skille mig af med dem – hvad nu hvis jeg fortryder? eller hvad nu hvis der gemmer sig en awesome historie indeni? Men det er sådan lige nu at jeg næsten har dårlig samvittighed over at købe nye bøger, når nu jeg faktisk har til et helt års læsning. Jeg har en kæmpe konflikt indeni, haha! Men jeg tror at det ender med at der bliver ryddet ud og skåret ned på en eller anden måde – time will tell!

Derudover, så VIL jeg til Bogforum i år! Herlufsholm dropper jeg, det var en kæmpe skuffelse, men Esbjerg Fantasyfestival skal jeg selvfølgelig også med til! Bogforum tænker jeg at deltage i om fredagen hvor der måske er lidt mindre proppet med mennesker – eller måske om søndagen. I hvert fald ikke Lørdag, for jeg kan simpelthen ikke magte så mange mennesker på så lidt plads en hel dag. Det er ikke fordi jeg får angstanfald eller noget, men jeg synes det er røvirriterende når folk står og går som sild i en tønde og det hele er så presset at man ikke kan komme ind på standene eller høre hvad der bliver sagt til foredrag og så videre. Jeg gider det sgu ikke! Jeg vil bare gerne summe rundt og købe bøger, og det er sgu lidt svært hvis man ikke kan komme rundt.

  • Forfatter: Vi Keeland
  • Udgivelse: 15/1






From #1 New York Times Bestseller Vi Keeland, comes a new, sexy standalone novel.

My relationship with Hunter Delucia started backwards.

We met at a wedding—him sitting on the groom’s side, me sitting on the bride’s. Stealing glances at each other throughout the night, there was no denying an intense, mutual attraction.

I caught the bouquet; he caught the garter. Hunter held me tightly while we danced and suggested we explore the chemistry sparking between us. His blunt, dirty mouth should’ve turned me off. But for some crazy reason, it had the opposite effect on me.

We ended up back in my hotel room. The next morning, I headed home to New York leaving him behind in California with the wrong number.

I thought about him often, but after my last relationship, I’d sworn off of charming, cocky, gorgeous-as-sin men. A year later, Hunter and I met again at the birth of our friends’ baby. Our attraction hadn’t dulled one bit. After a whirlwind trip, he demanded a real phone number this time. So I left him with my mother’s—she could scare away any man with her talks of babies and marriage—and flew back home.

I’d thought it was funny, until the following week when he rang the bell at Mom’s house for Sunday night dinner. The crazy, gorgeous man had won over my mother and taken an eight-week assignment in my city. He proposed we spend that time screwing each other out of our systems.

Eight weeks of mind-blowing sex with no strings attached? What did I have to lose?

Nothing, I thought.
It’s just sex, not love.
But you know what they say about the best laid plans…

  • Titel: Markswoman
  • Serie: Asiana #1
  • Forfatter: Rati Mehrotra
  • Udgivelse: 23/1







Kyra is the youngest Markswoman in the Order of Kali, a highly trained sisterhood of elite warriors armed with telepathic blades. Guided by a strict code of conduct, Kyra and the other Orders are sworn to protect the people of Asiana. But to be a Markswoman, an acolyte must repudiate her former life completely. Kyra has pledged to do so, yet she secretly harbors a fierce desire to avenge her dead family.

When Kyra’s beloved mentor dies in mysterious circumstances, and Tamsyn, the powerful, dangerous Mistress of Mental Arts, assumes control of the Order, Kyra is forced on the run. Using one of the strange Transport Hubs that are remnants of Asiana’s long-lost past, she finds herself in the unforgiving wilderness of desert that is home to the Order of Khur, the only Order composed of men. Among them is Rustan, a young, disillusioned Marksman whom she soon befriends.

Kyra is certain that Tamsyn committed murder in a twisted bid for power, but she has no proof. And if she fails to find it, fails in her quest to keep her beloved Order from following Tamsyn down a dark path, it could spell the beginning of the end for Kyra–and for Asiana.

But what she doesn’t realize is that the line between justice and vengeance is razor thin . . . thin as the blade of a knife.

Private Kaylin Neya thought her home couldn’t possibly get more crowded. But when one of her housemates, Annarion, decides to undertake the Barrani Test of Name, his friends refuse to let him face his task alone–and Kaylin’s sentient home, Helen, is the only structure capable of shielding the rest of Elantra from the magnitude of their power.

Annarion and Mandoran almost caused the destruction of the High Halls once already. Add nine of their closest friends, and the danger is astronomically higher–especially since these guests are at the heart of a political firestorm. Imprisoned almost a millennium ago, their recent freedom threatens the rulership of several prominent Barrani families, and the machinations of those Lords make it almost impossible to tell friend from foe. As political tensions ramp up, the shadows beneath the High Halls are seeking a freedom that has never been possible before. Kaylin must find a way to keep those shadows from escaping, or that freedom will destroy her city, the empire and everything she holds dear.

The Ben-Elim, a fierce race of warrior-angels, burst into the Banished Lands over a hundred and thirty years ago. They were in pursuit of their eternal enemy, the Kadoshim demon-horde.

But peace is fragile within the realm and the Kadoshim that remain are now amassing on the edges of the empire….

Lulu derimod, ved egentlig ikke, hvad der venter, når hun kommer hjem.

Et helt andet sted i verden begiver Habib sig ud på en farefuld færd over Middelhavet.

På en græsk ø krydses deres spor – og de næste uger vil vise dem alle, at frihed ser forskellig ud, afhængig af, hvem der stræber efter den.
