Nya boktips

Dags för boktips igen, kan knappt vänta att själv få tag på de här titlarna, verkar så spännande!

 Empty av Suzanne Weyn
It's the near future - the very near future - and the fossil fuels are running out. No gas. No oil. Which means no driving. No heat. Supermarkets are empty. Malls have shut down. Life has just become more local than we ever knew it could be.
Nobody expected the end to come this fast. And in the small town of Spring Valley, decisions that once seemed easy are quickly becoming matters of life and death. There is hope - there has to be hope - just there are also sacrifices that need to be made, and a whole society that needs to be rethought.
Teens like Niki, Tom, and Gwen may find what they need to survive. But their lives are never going to be the same again.

Detta är ett viktigt ämne eftersom det faktiskt kan komma att hända under vår livstid. Vad skulle hända egentligen? Empty kanske har svaret (eller kanske inte)

Obernewtyn av Isobelle Carmody
In a world struggling back from the brink of apocalypse, life is harsh and secretive. But for Elspeth Gordie, born with enhanced mental abilities that would see her sterilized or burned if discovered, it is also fraught with danger. There is only survival by secrecy, and so she determines never to demonstrate her forbidden powers. But it is as if they have their own imperative, and their distribution inevitably brings her to the attention of the totalitarian Council that rules and controls the Land with sadistic intentions.
   Sent to the remote mountain institute of Obernewtyn where escape is impossible, she must throw off her safe cloak of concealment and pit herself against those who would resurrect the terrible forces of the Apocalypse.
   Only then will she learn most truly who and what she is...

Som jag nämnde i min senaste recension så är jag barnsligt förtjust i övernaturliga förmågor, något Obernewtyn verkar ha gott om. Dessutom finns det massor av uppföljare som jag kan kasta mig över om den första boken lever upp till mina förväntningar.

The city of ember av Jeanne DuPrau
The city of Ember was built as a last refuge for the human race. Two hundred years later, the great lamps that light the city are beginning to flicker. When Lina finds part of an ancient message, she’s sure it holds a secret that will save the city. She and her friend Doon must decipher the message before the lights go out on Ember forever! This stunning debut novel offers refreshingly clear writing and fascinating, original characters.
Jag har sett filmen men inte läst boken, filmen var helt okej, men jag hoppas och tror att boken är bättre. Också här finns det ett gäng uppföljare, tre stycken faktiskt.

Possession av Elana Johnson
Vi knows the Rule: Girls don't walk with boys, and they never even think about kissing them. But no one makes Vi want to break the Rules more than Zenn...and since the Thinkers have chosen him as Vi's future match, how much trouble can one kiss cause? The Thinkers may have brainwashed the rest of the population, but Vi is determined to think for herself.
   But the Thinkers are unusually persuasive, and they're set on convincing Vi to become one of them...starting by brainwashing Zenn. Vi can't leave Zenn in the Thinkers' hands, but she's wary of joining the rebellion, especially since that means teaming up with Jag. Jag is egotistical, charismatic, and dangerous--everything Zenn's not. Vi can't quite trust Jag and can't quite resist him, but she also can't give up on Zenn.
   This is a game of control or be controlled. And Vi has no choice but to play.

Låter lite som Matched, men med mer action. Vill ha!

Någon som läst nån av de här böckerna? I sådana fall, vad tyckte i?
