Upcoming Releases

Come si intuisce dal titolo in inglese, oggi il post è dedicato ai titoli di prossima uscita all'estero.

Adoro spulciare tra i siti in inglesi e americani in cerca di nuovi libri in uscita...e se trovo qualcosa, inevitabilmente inizio a fare ipotesi e previsioni strampalate sulla data d'uscita italiana...ma metà del divertimento sta proprio lì.

Iniziamo con "The Pledge" di Kimberly Derting (già autrice de "La collezionista di voci").
Già la copertina mi sembra fantastica (anche se temo verrà cambiata nell'edizione italiana, lo fanno sempre... *sigh*), e anche la storia mi incuriosisce molto... 

TRAMA: 
In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.
Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.

Pubblicazione negli U.S.A: 15 novembre 2011
Stato: decisamente attesissimo

Aggiungo il link del sito dell'autrice (davvero interessante e ben fatto): http://kimberlyderting.com/


Altro libro intrigante: "Crossed" di Ally Condie, seguito di "Matched"


TRAMA:
In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

Cassia's quest leads her to question much of what she holds dear, even as she finds glimmers of a different life across the border. But as Cassia nears resolve and certainty about her future with Ky, an invitation for rebellion, an unexpected betrayal, and a surprise visit from Xander - who may hold the key to the uprising and, still, to Cassia's heart - change the game once again. Nothing is as expected on the edge of Society, where crosses and double crosses make the path more twisted than ever.


Pubblicazione negli U.S.A.: 1 novembre 2011
Stato: decisamente atteso (pure lui) 

Ed ecco il sito della serie: http://www.matched-book.com/ (anche questo è fatto benissimo, ci sono stata mezz'ora a gironzolare...) 


Terzo libro: "Silence" di Becca Fitzpartick.
Onestamente ho letto solo il primo libro della serie, e mi ha lasciata piuttosto indifferente. Io comunque lo aggiungo, non si sa mai che a qualcuno interessi.

TAMA:
The noise between Patch and Nora is gone. They've overcome the secrets riddled in Patch's dark past...bridged two irreconcilable worlds...faced heart-wrenching tests of betrayal, loyalty and trust...and all for a love that will transcend the boundary between heaven and earth. Armed with nothing but their absolute faith in one another, Patch and Nora enter a desperate fight to stop a villain who holds the power to shatter everything they've worked for—and their love—forever.

Pubblicazione U.S.A: 4 ottobre 2011
Stato: come già detto, indifferente 

E infine: "The Infernal Devices: The Clockwork Prince" di Cassandra Clare
Se penso che non sono ancora riuscita a leggere il primo della serie, mi si svita la testa dal collo per la rabbia.
Questo sì è un libro che attendo con impazienza...

TRAMA:
The situation at the London Institute has never been more precarious. With Mortmain and his clockwork army still threatening, the Council wants to strip Charlotte of her power and hand the running of the Enclave over to the unscrupulous and power-hungry Benedict Lightwood.
In the hope of saving Charlotte and the Institute, Will, Jem, and Tessa set out to unravel the secrets of Mortmain’s past—and discover unsettling Shadowhunter connections that hold the key not only to the enemy’s motivations, but also to the secret of Tessa’s identity. Tessa, already caught between the affections of Will and Jem, finds herself with another choice to make when she learns how the Shadowhunters helped make her a “monster.” Will she turn from them to her brother, Nate, who has been begging her to join him at Mortmain’s side? Where will her loyalties—and love—lie? Tessa alone can choose to save the Shadowhunters of London…or end them forever.



Pubblicazione U.S.A.: 6 dicembre 2011
Stato: si può dire iper-atteso?!
