"Matson’s characters feel like familiar, comforting friends.... It’s a sweet, leisurely read with a title that, thanks to Kelly Clarkson, begs to be shouted out loud." - Publishers Weekly
The Pre-Sloane Emily didn't go to parties, she barely talked to guys, she didn't do anything crazy. Enter Sloane, social tornado and the best kind of best friend—the one who yanks you out of your shell. But right before what should have been an epic summer, Sloane just... disappears. No note. No calls. No texts. No Sloane. There’s just a random to-do list. On it, thirteen Sloane-selected-definitely-bizarre-tasks that Emily would never try... unless they could lead back to her best friend. Apple Picking at Night? Ok, easy enough. Dance until Dawn? Sure. Why not? Kiss a Stranger? Wait... what? Getting through Sloane’s list would mean a lot of firsts. But Emily has this whole unexpected summer ahead of her, and the help of Frank Porter (totally unexpected) to check things off. Who knows what she'll find? Go Skinny Dipping? Um... (goodreads.com)


"A Girl Called Fearless is a story about fighting for the most important things in life—freedom and love."
Avie Reveare has the normal life of a privileged teen growing up in L.A., at least as normal as any girl’s life is these days. After a synthetic hormone in beef killed fifty million American women ten years ago, only young girls, old women, men, and boys are left to pick up the pieces. The death threat is past, but fathers still fear for their daughters' safety, and the Paternalist Movement, begun to "protect" young women, is taking over the choices they make. Like all her friends, Avie still mourns the loss of her mother, but she’s also dreaming about college and love and what she’ll make of her life. When her dad "contracts" her to marry a rich, older man to raise money to save his struggling company, her life suddenly narrows to two choices: Be trapped in a marriage with a controlling politician, or run. Her lifelong friend, student revolutionary Yates, urges her to run to freedom across the border to Canada. As their friendship turns to passion, the decision to leave becomes harder and harder. Running away is incredibly dangerous, and it’s possible Avie will never see Yates again. But staying could mean death. (goodreads.com)


"[...] an arresting, fantastical novel of one woman's impossible journey…and her quest to find her fate."
Lost your way? Your dreams? Yourself? Welcome to Lost. It was supposed to be a small escape. A few hours driving before turning around and heading home. But once you arrive in Lost...well, it's a place you really can't leave. Not until you're Found. Only the Missing Man can send you home. And he took one look at Lauren Chase and disappeared. So Lauren is now trapped in the town where all lost things go-luggage, keys, dreams, lives-where nothing is permanent, where the locals go feral and where the only people who don't want to kill her are a handsome wild man called the Finder and a knife-wielding six-year-old girl. The only road out of town is engulfed by an impassable dust storm, and escape is impossible... Until Lauren decides nothing-and no one-is going to keep her here anymore. (goodreads.com)


"Exciting and tense! Prepare for the unexpected! You'll stay up all night with this one!" - Sophie Jordan
World War III has left the world ravaged by nuclear radiation. A lucky few escaped to the Alaskan wilderness. They've survived for the last thirty years by living off the land, being one with nature, and hiding from whoever else might still be out there. At least, this is what Juneau has been told her entire life. When Juneau returns from a hunting trip to discover that everyone in her clan has vanished, she sets off to find them. Leaving the boundaries of their land for the very first time, she learns something horrifying: There never was a war. Cities were never destroyed. The world is intact. Everything was a lie. Now Juneau is adrift in a modern-day world she never knew existed. But while she's trying to find a way to rescue her friends and family, someone else is looking for her. Someone who knows the extraordinary truth about the secrets of her past. (goodreads.com)

"The One will captivate readers who love dystopian YA fiction and fairy tales."
The Selection changed the lives of thirty-five girls forever. And now, the time has come for one winner to be chosen. America never dreamed she would find herself anywhere close to the crown—or to Prince Maxon's heart. But as the competition approaches its end and the threats outside the palace walls grow more vicious, America realizes just how much she stands to lose—and how hard she'll have to fight for the future she wants.

"[...] the stunningly beautiful conclusion to the Dust Lands Trilogy, which has been called "better than The Hunger Games" - MTV's Hollywood Crush 
Saba is ready to seize her destiny and defeat DeMalo and the Tonton... until she meets him and he confounds all her expectations with his seductive vision of a healed earth, a New Eden. DeMalo wants Saba to join him, in life and work, to create and build a healthy, stable, sustainable world… for the chosen few. The few who can pay. Jack’s choice is clear: to fight DeMalo and try to stop New Eden. Still uncertain, her connection with DeMalo a secret, Saba commits herself to the fight. Joined by her brother, Lugh, anxious for the land in New Eden, Saba leads an inexperienced guerilla band against the powerfully charismatic DeMalo, in command of his settlers and the Tonton militia. What chance do they have? Saba must act. And be willing to pay the price. (goodreads.com)


"In this stunning conclusion to her bestselling Syrena Legacy, Anna Banks thrills fans with more action and romance than ever."
Emma and Galen’s kingdom and their love is threatened by long-lost Syrena in the brilliant conclusion to Anna Banks bestselling trilogy. Emma, half human and half Syrena, and her Syrena love, Galen, need time together alone. Away from the kingdoms of Poseidon and Triton. Emma’s grandfather, the Poseidon king, suggests the two visit a small town called Neptune. Neptune is home to both Syrena and Half-Breeds alike. But Emma and Galen didn’t sign up to be peacemakers between the ocean and the land-dwelling, freshwater Syrena. They didn’t bargain for meeting a charming Half-Breed named Reed, who can barely disguise his feelings for Emma. And they especially didn’t expect to find themselves in the middle of a power struggle that threatens not only their love but their ocean kingdoms. (goodreads.com)


Wartet ihr auch schon sehnsüchtig auf eins der Bücher oder freut ihr euch auf eine andere englische Neuerscheinung im kommenden Monat?


  1. Oh so viele tolle neue Bücher *-* Haben muss!!
    Da hast du sehr tolle rausgesucht, werd mir die meisten auf jeden Fall mal näher ansehen :D
    Mein SuB bedankt sich ;)
    Liebe Grüße, Katharina

    1. Ich entschuldige mich jetzt schon mal bei dir bzw. deinem Sub :D

  2. Von Contempory und Fantasy sind 5 von 6 auf die Wuli gewandert.
    Ich finde diese neue Kategorie toll. Ich habe bis jetzt noch nicht so herausgefunden,wo ich neue englische Bücher entdecken kann.
    Hast du die auf Amazon gefunden?

    Alles Liebe, Sophie

    1. Schön, dann werde ich versuchen sie weiter zu führen :)
      Nein, goodreads.com :)

  3. Wow, schöne Vorstellung - von den Büchern her und auch gestalterisch! =)
    Da werd ich mir einige definitiv merken.

    lg. Tine =)
    PS: Hab dich über Fb entdeckt und folge dir ab jetzt =)

  4. Ich finde es ja toll, dass auch mal englische Neuerscheinungen gezeigt werden! Hab ich so bisher noch nicht gesehen, da ich aber auch total gerne auf Englisch lese, finde ich die Idee toll :)
    Ich kann es gar nicht glauben, dass der dritte Teil von "Dust Lands" schon so früh erscheint *.* Ein Wunder, dass man mal nicht jahrelang auf die Fortsetzung warten muss. Der erste Teil ist mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch, leider habe ich es immer noch nicht geschafft, mir den zweiten Teil zu kaufen ... Weißt du ob es eine Trilogie wird oder doch eher eine Reihe?
    "After the End" hört sich auch total interessant an und da es von Amy Plum geschrieben ist, wird es bestimmt toll sein. Ihren Schreibstil kennt man ja schon aus "Von der Nacht verzaubert".
    Wie gesagt - tolle Idee, ich hoffe du wirst in Zukunft öfters mal die englischen Neuerscheinungen vorstellen :)

    1. Dankeschön! :)
      "Dust Lands" ist eine Trilogie und "Raging Star" ist der finale Teil :)
      Ich versuche es jeden Monat. Mal schauen ob ich es durchhalte :D

  5. Hallo Jule,

    vielen Dank für diese Zusammenstellung. Ich lese sehr gern englische Bücher. Und ich muss sagen, alle 3 Bücher bei SciFi, Dystopie klingen ganz hervorragend. Sicher werde ich mir mindestens eins bestellen. Hast du ganz sicher vor eines davon zu lesen? Welches

    Ich hoffe, dass du auch in Zukunft dir die Mühe machst und über Neuerscheinungen bei den Briten/Amis berichtest. ;-)

    Viele Grüße

    1. Also bei den Contemporary-Büchern werde ich mir auf jeden Fall alle drei kaufen und von den Fantasy-Büchern interessiert mich "The Lost" sehr.
      Werde ich! :)

  6. Jaaa ich warte sehnsüchtig auf "After The End" seitdem ich es bei Goodreads gesehen habe. Aber ich hätte jetzt total verpennt, dass es schon im Mai veröffentlicht wird. Und "Since You´ve Been Gone" hört sich auch super interessant an:)

    Liebe Grüße,
