YES! YALC HERE I COME!

Maar al die auteurs.. ik ken er echt zo weinig van.. dat moest ik even oplossen natuurlijk. Ik ga vanaf nu elke week een aantal auteurs delen én het boek wat je van hun gelezen moet hebben. Natuurlijk ga ik zelf ook proberen zoveel mogelijk van deze boeken te lezen.

Deze week in de spotlight:

Fifteen-year-old Mack is a hopeless romantic–likely a hazard of growing up on film sets thanks to his father’s job. Mack has had a crush on Karim for as long as he can remember and he can’t believe it when gorgeous, popular Karim seems into him too. But when Mack’s father takes on a new directing project in Scotland, Mack has to move away, and soon discovers how painful long-distance relationships can be. It’s awful to be so far away from Karim, and it’s made worse by the fact that Karim can be so hard to read. Then Mack meets actor Finlay on set, and the world turns upside down again.

Everyone in Ballyfran has a secret, and that is what binds them together… Fifteen-year-old twins Madeline and Catlin move to a new life in Ballyfran, a strange isolated town, a place where, for the last sixty years, teenage girls have gone missing in the surrounding mountains. As distance grows between the twins – as Catlin falls in love, and Madeline begins to understand her own nascent witchcraft – Madeline discovers that Ballyfrann is a place full of predators. Not only foxes, owls and crows, but also supernatural beings who for many generations have congregated here to escape persecution. When Catlin falls into the gravest danger of all, Madeline must ask herself who she really is, and who she wants to be – or rather, who she might have to become to save her sister.

Ariel’s accidental meeting with a handsome stranger called Joe is completely perfect; they have a connection like she’s never known before. They exchange numbers and agree to meet when he is back from a trip to France. But when Ariel messages him, the number Joe gave her is disconnected. He’s ghosted her. She assumes she will never see him again. Except she does. Again and again. Ariel returns to the place she and Joe met, and is stunned to find him there, not in France as he said he’d be, and behaving as if he has no idea who she is. It turns out that their first meeting has been life-changing for them both, actually it’s even more than that for Joe. But what do you do when – with every day that passes – you’re literally growing apart from the best person you’ve ever known . . . ?

Faridah Àbíké-íyímídé

42603984. sy475

An incendiary and utterly compelling thriller with a shocking twist that delves deep into the heart of institutionalized racism, from an exceptional new YA voice. Welcome to Niveus Private Academy, where money paves the hallways, and the students are never less than perfect. Until now. Because anonymous texter, Aces, is bringing two students’ dark secrets to light.

Aangezien ik niet alles kan lezen, kies ik voor Deirdre Sullivan, Derek Landy en Faridah Àbíké-íyímídé op mijn TBR. En de boeken? Die koop ik natuurlijk op YALC! Gelijk laten signeren!
