Nya böcker på min TBR våren 2019

Efter succén med Evelyn Hugos sju äkta män är vi nog många som är nyfikna på Taylor Jenkins Reid senaste bok:
Everyone knows Daisy Jones & The Six, but nobody knows the reason behind their split at the absolute height of their popularity . . . until now.

Daisy is a girl coming of age in L.A. in the late sixties, sneaking into clubs on the Sunset Strip, sleeping with rock stars, and dreaming of singing at the Whisky a Go Go. The sex and drugs are thrilling, but it’s the rock and roll she loves most. By the time she’s twenty, her voice is getting noticed, and she has the kind of heedless beauty that makes people do crazy things.Also getting noticed is The Six, a band led by the brooding Billy Dunne. On the eve of their first tour, his girlfriend Camila finds out she’s pregnant, and with the pressure of impending fatherhood and fame, Billy goes a little wild on the road. Daisy and Billy cross paths when a producer realizes that the key to supercharged success is to put the two together. What happens next will become the stuff of legend.

The making of that legend is chronicled in this riveting and unforgettable novel, written as an oral history of one of the biggest bands of the seventies. Taylor Jenkins Reid is a talented writer who takes her work to a new level with Daisy Jones & The Six, brilliantly capturing a place and time in an utterly distinctive voice.

Jag läste Geekerella för två år sedan och tyckte den var härligt nördig och mysig. Nu ger Ashley Poston ut en ny bok i samma anda!
The Prince and the Pauper gets a modern makeover in this adorable, witty, and heartwarming young adult novel set in the Geekerella universe by national bestselling author Ashley Poston.

Imogen Lovelace is an ordinary fangirl on an impossible mission: save her favorite character, Princess Amara, from being killed off from her favorite franchise, Starfield. The problem is, Jessica Stone—the actress who plays Princess Amara—wants nothing more than to leave the intense scrutiny of the fandom behind. If this year’s ExcelsiCon isn’t her last, she’ll consider her career derailed.

When a case of mistaken identity throws look-a-likes Imogen and Jess together, they quickly become enemies. But when the script for the Starfield sequel leaks, and all signs point to Jess, she and Imogen must trade places to find the person responsible. That’s easier said than done when the girls step into each other’s shoes and discover new romantic possibilities, as well as the other side of intense fandom. As these ”princesses” race to find the script-leaker, they must rescue themselves from their own expectations, and redefine what it means to live happily ever after.

Elly Griffiths är en okänd författare för mig, jag känner bara till att hon skrivit serien om Ruth Galloway som många gillat. Hennes senaste bok verkar väldigt spännande:

Clare Cassidy is no stranger to murder. A high school English teacher specializing in the Gothic writer R. M. Holland, she teaches a course on it every year. But when one of Clare’s colleagues and closest friends is found dead, with a line from R. M. Holland’s most famous story, “The Stranger,” left by her body, Clare is horrified to see her life collide with the storylines of her favourite literature.
To make matters worse, the police suspect the killer is someone Clare knows. Unsure whom to trust, she turns to her closest confidant, her diary, the only outlet she has for her darkest suspicions and fears about the case. Then one day she notices something odd. Writing that isn’t hers, left on the page of an old diary: ”Hallo, Clare. You don’t know me.”
Clare becomes more certain than ever: “The Stranger” has come to terrifying life. But can the ending be rewritten in time?
The SIlent Patient (utkommer på svenska i maj: Den tysta patienten) har dykt upp lite här och där på bookstagram, den tror jag man skall plocka upp när man är sugen på en thriller-blandvändare:
Alicia Berenson’s life is seemingly perfect. A famous painter married to an in-demand fashion photographer, she lives in a grand house with big windows overlooking a park in one of London’s most desirable areas. One evening her husband Gabriel returns home late from a fashion shoot, and Alicia shoots him five times in the face, and then never speaks another word.

Alicia’s refusal to talk, or give any kind of explanation, turns a domestic tragedy into something far grander, a mystery that captures the public imagination and casts Alicia into notoriety. The price of her art skyrockets, and she, the silent patient, is hidden away from the tabloids and spotlight at the Grove, a secure forensic unit in North London.

Theo Faber is a criminal psychotherapist who has waited a long time for the opportunity to work with Alicia. His determination to get her to talk and unravel the mystery of why she shot her husband takes him down a twisting path into his own motivations—a search for the truth that threatens to consume him…

Amanda Lovelace hade stor framgång med The princess saves herself in this one, och senare med The witch doesn’t burn in this one. Jag har inte läst den sistnämnde som dessutom vann Goodreads Choice Awards 2018 för bästa poesi. Åsikterna är många gällande modern och kort poesi, själv har jag lite blandade känslor men är rätt så nyfiken på att läsa mera av Lovelace.

The mermaid is known for her siren song, luring bedroom-eyed sailors to their demise. However, beneath these misguided myths are tales of escapism and healing, which Lovelace weaves throughout this empowering collection of poetry, taking you on a journey from the sea to the stars. They tried to silence her once and for all, but the mermaid’s voice returns in this one.
Och slutligen en bok på svenska. Hannah Richell har imponerat mig med Systrarna Tides sista sommar och Skuggan av ett år som var såå himla bra. Ser framemot Påfågelsommar!

En uppslukande roman om familjehemligheter och förbjuden kärlek på den engelska landsbygden. På samma släktgods, men med många år emellan, är två kvinnor med om varsin omvälvande sommar.

Lillian Oberon känner sig instängd i ett olyckligt äktenskap men ser ingen väg ut. När den karismatiske konstnär som hennes man anlitat kommer till godset vänds allt upp och ner.

Årtionden senare kliver Lillians barnbarn Maggie över tröskeln till det nedgångna huset. Hon har återvänt från Australien, dit hon flydde efter ett stort kärlekssvek. Tiden är inne att se sanningen i vitögat och konfronteras med det förflutna. Nutid och dåtid flätas samman och bildar en gripande historia.
