LANÇAMENTOS DE JANEIRO

 

 

The Wicked King (The Folk of the Air #2)
de Holly Black
(8 de janeiro)

You must be strong enough to strike and strike and strike again without tiring.

The first lesson is to make yourself strong.

After the jaw-dropping revelation that Oak is the heir to Faerie, Jude must keep her younger brother safe. To do so, she has bound the wicked king, Cardan, to her, and made herself the power behind the throne. Navigating the constantly shifting political alliances of Faerie would be difficult enough if Cardan were easy to control. But he does everything in his power to humiliate and undermine her even as his fascination with her remains undiminished.

When it becomes all too clear that someone close to Jude means to betray her, threatening her own life and the lives of everyone she loves, Jude must uncover the traitor and fight her own complicated feelings for Cardan to maintain control as a mortal in a Faerie world.

Mari: O Príncipe Cruel, o primeiro livro, já foi lançado no Brasil pela Galera Record e foi uma das minhas leituras preferidas de 2018!! Recomendo a todos que gostam de uma mitologia com fadas traiçoeiras, reviravoltas e uma mocinha ambígua! Estou louca para ler a continuação, que tá prometendo ser ainda melhor que o anterior.

Two Can Keep a Secret
de Karen M. McManus
(8 de janeiro)

Echo Ridge is small-town America. Ellery’s never been there, but she’s heard all about it. Her aunt went missing there at age seventeen. And only five years ago, a homecoming queen put the town on the map when she was killed. Now Ellery has to move there to live with a grandmother she barely knows.

The town is picture-perfect, but it’s hiding secrets. And before school even begins for Ellery, someone’s declared open season on homecoming, promising to make it as dangerous as it was five years ago. Then, almost as if to prove it, another girl goes missing.

Ellery knows all about secrets. Her mother has them; her grandmother does too. And the longer she’s in Echo Ridge, the clearer it becomes that everyone there is hiding something. The thing is, secrets are dangerous–and most people aren’t good at keeping them. Which is why in Echo Ridge, it’s safest to keep your secrets to yourself.

Raíssa: Da mesma temática do livro Um de Nós Está Mentindo, após seu sucesso Karen retorna com mais um livro cheio de segredos e pessoas que fazem de tudo para manter isso para sí, mas pelo jeito nem sempre isso é possível.

Slayer (Slayer #1)
de Kiersten White
(8 de janeiro)

Into every generation a Slayer is born…

Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.

Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.

Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.

As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…

But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.

One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard.

Mari: Slayer será o primeiro livro de uma série que vai seguir a mesma mitologia da série sobrenatural icônica dos anos 90 “Buffy, a Caça-Vampiros“. Buffy é uma série maravilhosa, com mitologia incrível e eu não vejo a hora de ler esse livro, principalmente porque amo a escrita da Kiersten White, dela li Filha das Trevas e amei! A Plataforma21 já avisou que irá lançar Slayer no Brasil.

The Vanishing Stair (Truly Devious #2)
de Maureen Johnson
(22 de janeiro)

All Stevie Bell wanted was to find the key to the Ellingham mystery, but instead she found her classmate dead. And while she solved that murder, the crimes of the past are still waiting in the dark. Just as Stevie feels she’s on the cusp of putting it together, her parents pull her out of Ellingham academy.

For her own safety they say. She must move past this obsession with crime. Now that Stevie’s away from the school of topiaries and secret tunnels, and her strange and endearing friends, she begins to feel disconnected from the rest of the world. At least she won’t have to see David anymore. David, who she kissed. David, who lied to her about his identity—son of despised politician Edward King. Then King himself arrives at her house to offer a deal: He will bring Stevie back to Ellingham immediately. In return, she must play nice with David. King is in the midst of a campaign and can’t afford his son stirring up trouble. If Stevie’s at school, David will stay put.

The tantalizing riddles behind the Ellingham murders are still waiting to be unraveled, and Stevie knows she’s so close. But the path to the truth has more twists and turns than she can imagine—and moving forward involves hurting someone she cares for. In New York Times bestselling author Maureen Johnson’s second novel of the Truly Devious series, nothing is free, and someone will pay for the truth with their life.

Mari: Segundo livro da nova série da Maureen Johnson, Truly Devious. Eu ainda não tive oportunidade de ler o primeiro livro, mas achei importante adicionar ele nessa lista. Maureen é uma autora muito boa e está fazendo cada vez mais sucesso.

King of Scars (Nikolai Duology #1)
de Leigh Bardugo
(29 de janeiro)

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

Raíssa: E Nikolai Lantsov retorna em uma nova duologia de Leigh. Após a guerra civil que acabou com metade do seu país, os inimigos se reúnem em suas fronteiras enfraquecidas e o jovem rei precisa reabastecer os cofres de Ravka e criar novas alianças para impedir a ameaça do Exército de Grisha. Além disso, Nikolai precisa controlar a magia negra que cresce a cada dia mais dentro de sí. Ainda teremos o aparecimento de uma personagem linda de uma outra duologia ai…

A Curse So Dark and Lonely
de Brigid Kemmerer
(29 de janeiro)

Fall in love, break the curse.

It once seemed so easy to Prince Rhen, the heir to Emberfall. Cursed by a powerful enchantress to repeat the autumn of his eighteenth year over and over, he knew he could be saved if a girl fell for him. But that was before he learned that at the end of each autumn, he would turn into a vicious beast hell-bent on destruction. That was before he destroyed his castle, his family, and every last shred of hope.

Nothing has ever been easy for Harper Lacy. With her father long gone, her mother dying, and her brother barely holding their family together while constantly underestimating her because of her cerebral palsy, she learned to be tough enough to survive. But when she tries to save someone else on the streets of Washington, DC, she’s instead somehow sucked into Rhen’s cursed world.

Break the curse, save the kingdom.

A prince? A monster? A curse? Harper doesn’t know where she is or what to believe. But as she spends time with Rhen in this enchanted land, she begins to understand what’s at stake. And as Rhen realizes Harper is not just another girl to charm, his hope comes flooding back. But powerful forces are standing against Emberfall . . . and it will take more than a broken curse to save Harper, Rhen, and his people from utter ruin.

Raíssa: Releitura de A Bela e a Fera já tem um espaço no coração obviamente. Príncipe Rhen, o herdeiro de Emberfall, foi amaldiçoado a viver em um loop do outono do seu décimo oitavo aniversário e ele sabia que essa maldição poderia ser quebrada caso uma garota se apaixonasse por ele. Só que ao descobrir que no final de cada outono ele se tornaria uma fera cruel determinada pela destruição, ele destroi seu castelo, família e com isso se vai toda a esperança. Do outro lado, temos Harper que mantem a família unida após o desaparecimento do pai, sua mãe morrendo e ainda precisando cuidar do irmão, além do que ela teve uma paralisia cerebral que fez todos a subestimarem. Ao tentar salvar uma pessoa nas ruas de Washington, DC ela se vê no mundo de Rhen. A autora comentou no goodreads que esse livro é um stand alone e que a história está completa, mas vai ter uma sequência.

NOTÍCIAS DO ÚLTIMO MÊS


O livro “Deixe a Neve Cair” será filme na Netflix!

O livro Deixe a Neve Cair (Let It Snow, no original), coautoria de John Green, Maureen Johnson e Lauren Myracle, virará filme na Netflix. De acordo com o Deadline, o produtor Dylan Clark, de Planeta dos Macacos: A Guerra, está no projeto e as filmagens acontecerão no início de 2019.

Por enquanto, não há informações sobre elenco, nem quando será o lançamento do longa.

Na noite de natal, uma inesperada tempestade de neve transforma uma pequena cidade num inusitado refúgio romântico, do tipo que se vê apenas em filmes. Bem , mais ou menos. Porque ficar presa à noite dentro de um trem retido pela nevasca no meio do nada, apostar corrida com os amigos no frio congelante até a lanchonete mais próxima ou lidar sozinha com a tristeza da perda do namorado ideal não seriam momentos considerados românticos para quem espera encontrar o verdadeiro amor.
Mas os autores bestsellers John Green , Maureen Johnson e Lauren Myracle revelam a surpreendente magia do Natal nestes três hilários e encantadores contos de amor , interligados, com direito a romances, aventuras e beijos de tirar o fôlego.
