Neu im Buchregal: 1. Quartal 2014

Neu im Buchregal

Im ersten Quartal des Jahres 2014 haben einige Bücher ihren Weg in mein Buchregal gefunden. Ich habe diese schon zum Teil gelesen und hier auch schon rezensiert. Andere warten noch darauf, von mir gelesen zu werden.

Vielleicht sollte ich noch kurz ein Wort darüber verlieren, warum ich das quartalweise mache. Der Grund ist einfach: ich kaufe mir nicht gerade viele Bücher in einem Monat. Also anstatt jeden Monat hier ein oder maximal zwei Bücher zu posten, habe ich mich dazu entschieden, die Bücher für jedes Quartal zusammen zu fassen.

Then America meets Prince Maxon. Gradually, she begins to realize that the life she’s always dreamed of may not compare to a future she never imagined.

A Game of ThronesA Game of Thrones – George R.R. Martin
In a land where summers can last decades and winters a lifetime, trouble is brewing. The cold is returning, and in the frozen wastes to the North of Winterfell, sinister and supernatural forces are massing beyond the kingdom’s protective Wall. At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens. Amid plots and counterplots, tragedy and betrayal, victory and terror, the fate of the Starks, their allies, and their enemies hangs perilously in the balance, as each endeavors to win the deadliest of conflicts: the game of thrones.
