Naujos knygos anglų kalba (sausio 1-24 dienos) (I)


Kadangi mes siekiame ne tik jus supažindinti su Lietuvoje leidžiamomis knygomis, tačiau ir leidžiamomis užsienyje, Jums kiekvieną antradienį stengsimės pateikti naujų anglų kalba išleistų knygų pristatymus (anotacijas). Kodėl antradieniais? Atsakymas paprastas: Amerikoje būtent antradieniais (dažniausiai) knygynuose pasirodo naujos knygos. Tačiau šįkart norime pristatyti ne tik šios savaitės naujienas, bet viso kone mėnesio naujienas. Taigi, susipažinkite su knygomis ir, jeigu kuri nors jus sudomino, įsigykite 😉

Keli galimi būdai įsigyti angliškas knygas gyvenant Lietuvoje:
  • Apsilankykite angliškomis knygomis prekiaujančiuose knygynuose (pvz.: „Humanitas“)
  • Užsisakykite knygas https://www.bookdepository.com . Šis elektroninis knygynas siūlo labai platų angliškų knygų asortimentą ir pristatymas į bet kurią šalį yra NEMOKAMAs!
  • Nusipirkti elektronines knygų versijas elektroniniuose knygynuose (pvz.: Amazon.com)

For her sixteenth birthday, Vaela Sun receives the most coveted gift in all the Spire—a trip to the Continent. It seems an unlikely destination for a holiday: a cold, desolate land where two “uncivilized” nations remain perpetually at war. Most citizens tour the Continent to see the spectacle and violence of battle—a thing long vanished in the Spire. For Vaela—a smart and talented apprentice cartographer—it is an opportunity to improve upon the maps she’s drawn of this vast, frozen land.

But an idyllic aerial exploration is not to be had: the realities of war are made clear in a bloody battle seen from the heli-plane during the tour, leaving Vaela forever changed. And when a tragic accident leaves her stranded on the Continent, she has no illusions about the true nature of the danger she faces. Starving, alone, and lost in the middle of a war zone, Vaela must try to find a way home—but first, she must survive.

When Adam Blake lands the best elective ever in his senior year, serving as an aide to the school psychologist, he thinks he’s got it made.

On a planet where violence and vengeance rule, in a galaxy where some are favored by fate, everyone develops a currentgift, a unique power meant to shape the future. While most benefit from their currentgifts, Akos and Cyra do not—their gifts make them vulnerable to others’ control. Can they reclaim their gifts, their fates, and their lives, and reset the balance of power in this world?

Cyra is the sister of the brutal tyrant who rules the Shotet people. Cyra’s currentgift gives her pain and power—something her brother exploits, using her to torture his enemies. But Cyra is much more than just a blade in her brother’s hand: she is resilient, quick on her feet, and smarter than he knows.

Akos is from the peace-loving nation of Thuvhe, and his loyalty to his family is limitless. Though protected by his unusual currentgift, once Akos and his brother are captured by enemy Shotet soldiers, Akos is desperate to get his brother out alive—no matter what the cost. When Akos is thrust into Cyra’s world, the enmity between their countries and families seems insurmountable. They must decide to help each other to survive—or to destroy one another.

Fans of Star Wars and Divergent will revel in internationally bestselling author Veronica Roth’s stunning new science-fiction fantasy series.

A YA debut about a teen girl who wrestles with rumors, reputation, and her relationships with two brothers.

Seventeen-year-old Raychel is sleeping with two boys: her overachieving best friend Matt…and his slacker brother, Andrew. Raychel sneaks into Matt’s bed after nightmares, but nothing ever happens. He doesn’t even seem to realize she’s a girl, except when he decides she needs rescuing. But Raychel doesn’t want to be his girl anyway. She just needs his support as she deals with the classmate who assaulted her, the constant threat of her family’s eviction, and the dream of college slipping quickly out of reach. Matt tries to help, but he doesn’t really get it… and he’d never understand why she’s fallen into a secret relationship with his brother. The friendships are a precarious balance, and when tragedy strikes, everything falls apart. Raychel has to decide which pieces she can pick up – and which ones are worth putting back together.

How do you live your life if your past is based on a lie? A new novel in both verse and prose from #1 New York Times bestselling author, Ellen Hopkins.

For as long as she can remember, it’s been just Ariel and Dad. Ariel’s mom disappeared when she was a baby. Dad says home is wherever the two of them are, but Ariel is now seventeen and after years of new apartments, new schools, and new faces, all she wants is to put down some roots. Complicating things are Monica and Gabe, both of whom have stirred a different kind of desire.

Maya’s a teenager who’s run from an abusive mother right into the arms of an older man she thinks she can trust. But now she’s isolated with a baby on the way, and life’s getting more complicated than Maya ever could have imagined.

Ariel and Maya’s lives collide unexpectedly when Ariel’s mother shows up out of the blue with wild accusations: Ariel wasn’t abandoned. Her father kidnapped her fourteen years ago.

What is Ariel supposed to believe? Is it possible Dad’s woven her entire history into a tapestry of lies? How can she choose between the mother she’s been taught to mistrust and the father who has taken care of her all these years?

In bestselling author Ellen Hopkins’s deft hands, Ariel’s emotionally charged journey to find out the truth of who she really is balances beautifully with Maya’s story of loss and redemption. This is a memorable portrait of two young women trying to make sense of their lives and coming face to face with themselves—for both the last and the very first time.

All Etta Spencer wanted was to make her violin debut when she was thrust into a treacherous world where the struggle for power could alter history. After losing the one thing that would have allowed her to protect the Timeline, and the one person worth fighting for, Etta awakens alone in an unknown place and time, exposed to the threat of the two groups who would rather see her dead than succeed. When help arrives, it comes from the last person Etta ever expected—Julian Ironwood, the Grand Master’s heir who has long been presumed dead, and whose dangerous alliance with a man from Etta’s past could put them both at risk.

Meanwhile, Nicholas and Sophia are racing through time in order to locate Etta and the missing astrolabe with Ironwood travelers hot on their trail. They cross paths with a mercenary-for-hire, a cheeky girl named Li Min who quickly develops a flirtation with Sophia. But as the three of them attempt to evade their pursuers, Nicholas soon realizes that one of his companions may have ulterior motives.

As Etta and Nicholas fight to make their way back to one another, from Imperial Russia to the Vatican catacombs, time is rapidly shifting and changing into something unrecognizable… and might just run out on both of them.

  1. Tiek knygų ir niekas neišsako savo nuomonės 🙂 Man gal visai nieko “The book jumper“, “Poison’s kill“ ir “After the fall“.

    Patinka

    1. “The book jumper“ mane irgi sudomino, Ji berods iš vokiečių kalbos versta 🙂 “Poison’s kiss“ skambėjo įdomiai, bet knyga ganėtinai suplota. Norėjosi, kad mergina su vaikinu jau būtų pažįstami, kad tą įtampa, kai jai paliepiama jį nužudyti, būtų stipresnio efekto, nes dabar tai ganėtinai tradiciškas šablonas: mergina susipažįsta su vaikinu, jai jis patinka, jai liepta jį nužudyti, ji negali to padaryti, nes jis jai buvo geras ir gal ji jį myli :/

      Patinka

      1. Aš kažkaip iš aprašymo galvojau kad taip ir bus, lieps nužudyti pažįstamą vaikiną, vos ne draugą :-/

        Patinka

  2. Jau pasirodė “Carve the mark“?! Oho, tiek laukta knyga, puiki autorė. Tikrai norėčiau, kad ji būtų išleista ir Lietuvoje, nes, žinant, kokia puiki autorė su dar puikesne fantazija yra Veronika Rut, tikrai norėtųsi paskaityti ir daugiau jos darbų 🙂

    Patinka
