5 boeken die ik graag vertaald zie worden

Herken je dat? Je bent bezig in een boek en denkt wow dit is goed, waarom is de Nederlandstalige versie niet beschikbaar? Waarom is hij eigenlijk niet vertaald? Op Goodreads zie je veel goede recensies en denkt dit boek mag wel vertaald worden. Dat dacht ik dus over deze vijf boeken.

Splintered van A.G. Howard
Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers—precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together. For now.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family. She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.

Het is best al weer een tijd geleden toen ik Splintered las. Ik was al onder de indruk voordat ik begon met lezen. Deze unieke Alice in Wonderland hervertelling heeft een super toffe cover. Ik vond het Engels best lastig lezen maar deze setting is zo ontzettend tof. Dus als je van toffe hervertellingen houdt is Splintered zeker een aanrader

Since you’ve been gone van Morgan Matson
It was Sloane who yanked Emily out of her shell and made life 100% interesting. But right before what should have been the most epic summer, Sloane just…disappears. All she leaves behind is a to-do list.

On it, thirteen Sloane-inspired tasks that Emily would normally never try. But what if they could bring her best friend back?

Apple picking at night? Okay, easy enough.

Dance until dawn? Sure. Why not?

Kiss a stranger? Um…

Emily now has this unexpected summer, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected), to check things off Sloane’s list. Who knows what she’ll find?

Go skinny-dipping? Wait…what?

Ik vind de boeken van Morgan Matson zo tof. Zo las ik Since you’ve been gone en The unexpected everything een paar jaar terug. Maar ik zou ze zeker nog een keer lezen. Wat Since you’ve been gone zo tof maakt is dat Emily haar vriendin verdwijnt en ze laat een grote, gekke to do list achter. Lachen gegarandeerd! Since you’ve been gone is een heerlijk feelgood boek waar je zo doorheen vliegt.

Don’t look back van Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Samantha is a stranger in her own life. Until the night she disappeared with her best friend, Cassie, everyone said Sam had it all – popularity, wealth, and a dream boyfriend.

Sam has resurfaced, but she has no recollection of who she was or what happened to her that night. As she tries to piece together her life from before, she realizes it’s one she no longer wants any part of. The old Sam took “mean girl” to a whole new level, and it’s clear she and Cassie were more like best enemies. Sam is pretty sure that losing her memories is like winning the lottery. She’s getting a second chance at being a better daughter, sister, and friend, and she’s falling hard for Carson Ortiz, a boy who has always looked out for her-even if the old Sam treated him like trash.

But Cassie is still missing, and the truth about what happened to her that night isn’t just buried deep inside of Sam’s memory – someone else knows, someone who wants to make sure Sam stays quiet. All Sam wants is the truth, and if she can unlock her clouded memories of that fateful night, she can finally move on. But what if not remembering is the only thing keeping Sam alive?

Dit was het eerste boek van Jennifer L. Armentrout die ik las. Don’t look back is een geweldige thriller die je het liefst in een ruk uit leest. Het is een beetje creepy en zo anders dan de andere boeken die Jennifer L. Armentrout heeft geschreven. Ik wilde dat ze meer thrillers zou schrijven.

The fill-in boyfriend van Kasie West
When Gia Montgomery’s boyfriend, Bradley, dumps her in the parking lot of her high school prom, she has to think fast. After all, she’d been telling her friends about him for months now. This was supposed to be the night she proved he existed. So when she sees a cute guy waiting to pick up his sister, she enlists his help. The task is simple: be her fill-in boyfriend—two hours, zero commitment, a few white lies. After that, she can win back the real Bradley.

The problem is that days after prom, it’s not the real Bradley she’s thinking about, but the stand-in. The one whose name she doesn’t even know. But tracking him down doesn’t mean they’re done faking a relationship. Gia owes him a favor and his sister intends to see that he collects: his ex-girlfriend’s graduation party—three hours, zero commitment, a few white lies.

Just when Gia begins to wonder if she could turn her fake boyfriend into a real one, Bradley comes waltzing back into her life, exposing her lie, and threatening to destroy her friendships and her new-found relationship.

De boeken van Kasie West lezen zo heerlijk weg dat ik me afvraag waarom ik nooit alles van haar heb gelezen. Ze brengt ongeveer twee boeken per jaar uit dus er is genoeg materiaal om te lezen. Na het lezen van The fill-in boyfriend dacht ik ah wat heb ik het toch goed want dit is grappig en ongemakkelijk maar toch heerlijk om te lezen.

The kiss of deception van Mary E. Pearson
A princess must find her place in a reborn world.
She flees on her wedding day.
She steals ancient documents from the Chancellor’s secret collection.
She is pursued by bounty hunters sent by her own father.
She is Princess Lia, seventeen, First Daughter of the House of Morrighan.

The Kingdom of Morrighan is steeped in tradition and the stories of a bygone world, but some traditions Lia can’t abide. Like having to marry someone she’s never met to secure a political alliance.

Fed up and ready for a new life, Lia flees to a distant village on the morning of her wedding. She settles in among the common folk, intrigued when two mysterious and handsome strangers arrive—and unaware that one is the jilted prince and the other an assassin sent to kill her. Deceptions swirl and Lia finds herself on the brink of unlocking perilous secrets—secrets that may unravel her world—even as she feels herself falling in love

.Als je een fantasy liefhebber bent dan raad ik A kiss of deception aan om te gaan lezen. Het verhaal gaat over Lia die niet geforceerd wilt trouwen dus weg loopt. Je leest het verhaal grotendeels uit het perspectief van Lia maar en is ook nog de prins en de assasin in het verhaal. Kortom spannend, tof en een beetje romantisch.
