Om jag hade 1000 kronor, då minsann!

Men åh...
   Anmälde mig till en novelltävling för ett tag sen, där jag hade chans att vinna 1000 kr. Nu i veckan fick jag ett mejl där det stod att jag.... tyvärr inte är en av vinnarna. -.- Ville verkligen ha de där pengarna! Och ni kan ju gissa vad jag tänkte köpa... Nej, jag tänkte faktiskt inte köpa böcker för alla pengar, bara nästan.
   Så nu tänkte jag göra ett inlägg om vilka böcker jag skulle ha köpt om jag vunnit pengarna (Alltså om jag skulle använda alla pengarna till böcker.)

Jag kör med Adlibris priser, bara för att jag beställer därifrån mest :-)

1. The Fault in Our Stars - John Green (Inbunden: 114 kr (E P Dutton & Co Ink))
Är så galet sugen på att läsa den här! Blir tokig så fort jag tänker på den -.-
   Cancersjuk huvudroll som går och blir kär trots att hon vet att hon kommer att dö... Ååååååhhhh!!! Dessutom ska boken vara rätt rolig, samtidigt som den är otroligt sorglig. Enligt några recensioner jag läst skrattar man ena sekunden, och gråter nästa.

Handling från Adlibris:
Despite the tumor-shrinking medical miracle that has bought her a few years, Hazel has never been anything but terminal, her final chapter inscribed upon diagnosis. But when a gorgeous plot twist named Augustus Waters suddenly appears at Cancer Kid Support Group, Hazel's story is about to be completely rewritten.

Insightful, bold, irreverent, and raw, The Fault in Our Stars is award-winning-author John Green's most ambitious and heartbreaking work yet, brilliantly exploring the funny, thrilling, and tragic business of being alive and in love.

2. Pandemonium - Lauren Oliver (Inbunden: 114 kr (Harpercollins))
Delirium. Cliffhanger. Tårar. Måste. Ha. Uppföljaren. NU!

Handling från Adlibris (Typ spoilervarning om du inte läst första delen):
I'm pushing aside
the memory of my nightmare,
pushing aside thoughts of Alex,
pushing aside thoughts of Hana
and my old school,
push,
push,
push,
like Raven taught me to do.
The old life is dead.
But the old Lena is dead too.
I buried her.
I left her beyond a fence,
behind a wall of smoke and flame.

Lauren Oliver delivers an electrifying follow-up to her acclaimed "New York Times" bestseller, "Delirium." This riveting, brilliant novel crackles with the fire of fierce defiance, forbidden romance, and the sparks of a revolution about to ignite.

3. Shadow Kiss - Richelle Mead (Häftad: 65 kr (Razorbill))
Tredje delen i Vampire Academy. Vill väldigt gärna se mer av Rose. Härliga kaxiga tjejen Rose.

Handling från Adlibris (Typ spoilervarning om du inte läst de tidigare delarna i serien):
Join the Vampire Academy and Experience Augmented Reality. Click here and put your face on the cover of a best seller book. Are you tempted? Watch "Vampire Academy" come to life with your likeness
Is Rose's fate to kill the person she loves most? It's springtime at St. Vladimir's Academy, and Rose Hathaway is this close to graduation. Since Mason's death, Rose hasn't been feeling quite right. She has dark flashbacks in the middle of practice, can't concentrate in class, and has terrifying dreams about Lissa. But Rose has an even "bigger" secret . . . .She's in love with Dimitri. And this time, it's way more than a crush.
Then Strigoi target the academy in the deadliest attack in Moroi history, and Dimitri is taken. Rose must protect Lissa at all costs, but keeping her best friend safe could mean losing Dimitri forever...

4. Blood promise - Richelle Mead (Häftad: 70 kr (Razorbill))
Vadå då? Har hört att det kommer en stor farlig twist i slutet. Försöker bara förbereda mig själv lite här.

5. City of Fallen Angels - Cassandra Clare (Häftad: 76 kr (Margaret K. McElderry Books))
Jag blir alltid så ledsen när jag tänker på hur lång tid det är kvar tills filmen släpps. Så då kan jag trösta mig med att läsa del fyra i serien så länge. (Tja, och så vill jag ju fortsätta läsa om alla dessa härliga karaktärer.)

Handling från Adlibris (Typ spoilervarning om du inte läst tidigare delar i serien):
The Mortal War is over, and sixteen-year-old Clary Fray is back home in New York, excited about all the possibilities before her. She's training to become a Shadowhunter and to use her unique power. Her mother is getting married to the love of her life. Downworlders and Shadowhunters are at peace at last. And--most importantly of all--she can finally call Jace her boyfriend.
But nothing comes without a price.
Someone is murdering Shadowhunters, provoking tensions between Downworlders and Shadowhunters that could lead to a second, bloody war. Clary's best friend, Simon, can't help her--his mother just found out that he's a vampire, and now he's homeless. When Jace begins to pull away from her without explaining why, Clary is forced to delve into the heart of a mystery whose solution reveals her worst nightmare: she herself has set in motion a terrible chain of events that could lead to her losing everything she loves. Even Jace.
The stakes are higher than ever in the #1 "New York Times" bestselling fourth installment of the Mortal Instruments series.

6. City of Lost Souls - Cassandra Clare (Häftad: Väldigt osäker på priset, då jag är extremt noga med att böcker i samma serie ska vara från samma förlag och i samma format. Från samma förlag hittade jag den bara i inbundet format. Men den får väl ligga på 76 kr den med.)
Som ni märkt är jag extremt rädd för cliffhangers, och gillar att förbereda mig själv när jag vet att de kommer.

7. Anna Dressed in Blood - Kendare Blake (Häftad: 70 kr (Tor Books))
Är så nyfiken på den här så det är inte klokt! Dessutom är jag smått förälskad i omslaget ;-)

Handling från Adlibris:

Cas Lowood has inherited an unusual vocation: He kills the dead.
So did his father before him, until he was gruesomely murdered by a ghost he sought to kill. Now, armed with his father's mysterious and deadly athame, Cas travels the country with his kitchen-witch mother and their spirit-sniffing cat. They follow legends and local lore, destroy the murderous dead, and keep pesky things like the future and friends at bay.
Searching for a ghost the locals call Anna Dressed in Blood, Cas expects the usual: track, hunt, kill. What he finds instead is a girl entangled in curses and rage, a ghost like he's never faced before. She still wears the dress she wore on the day of her brutal murder in 1958: once white, now stained red and dripping with blood. Since her death, Anna has killed any and every person who has dared to step into the deserted Victorian she used to call home.
Yet she spares Cas's life.

8. The Raven Boys - Maggie Stiefvater (Inbunden: 120 kr (Scholastic Press))
Jippie! Maggie Stiefvaters nya! Ge mig ge mig ge mig!!!

Handling från Adlibris:

An all-new series from the masterful, #1 New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater
"There are only two reasons a non-seer would see a spirit on St. Mark's Eve," Neeve said. "Either you're his true love . . . or you killed him."
It is freezing in the churchyard, even before the dead arrive.
Every year, Blue Sargent stands next to her clairvoyant mother as the soon-to-be dead walk past. Blue herself never sees them-not until this year, when a boy emerges from the dark and speaks directly to her.
His name is Gansey, and Blue soon discovers that he is a rich student at Aglionby, the local private school. Blue has a policy of staying away from Aglionby boys. Known as Raven Boys, they can only mean trouble.
But Blue is drawn to Gansey, in a way she can't entirely explain. He has it all-family money, good looks, devoted friends-but he's looking for much more than that. He is on a quest that has encompassed three other Raven Boys.

9. The Scorpio Races - Maggie Stiefvater (Inbunden: 114 kr (Scholastic Press))
Ännu mer Stiefvater!

Handling från Adlibris:

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Shiver and Linger comes a brand new, heartstopping novel.
Some race to win. Others race to survive.
It happens at the start of every November: the Scorpio Races. Riders attempt to keep hold of their water horses long enough to make it to the finish line.
Some riders live.
Others die.
At age nineteen, Sean Kendrick is the returning champion. He is a young man of few words, and if he has any fears, he keeps them buried deep, where no one else can see them.
Puck Connolly is different. She never meant to ride in the Scorpio Races. But fate hasn't given her much of a choice. So she enters the competition - the first girl ever to do so. She is in no way prepared for what is going to happen.
As she did in her bestselling Shiver trilogy, author Maggie Stiefvater takes us to the breaking point, where both love and life meet their greatest obstacles, and only the strong of heart can survive. The Scorpio Races is an unforgettable reading experience.

10. Incarnate - Jodi Meadows (Inbunden: 114 kr (Katherine Tegen Books))
Först och främst. OMSLAGET! I'm soooooo in love! (Tja, och så verkar den bra ;-))

Handling från Adlibris:

New soul
Ana is new. For thousands of years in Range, a million souls have been reincarnated over and over, keeping their memories and experiences from previous lifetimes. When Ana was born, another soul vanished, and no one knows why.
No soul
Even Ana's own mother thinks she's a nosoul, an omen of worse things to come, and has kept her away from society. To escape her seclusion and learn whether she'll be reincarnated, Ana travels to the city of Heart, but its citizens are afraid of what her presence means. When dragons and sylph attack the city, is Ana to blame?
Heart
Sam believes Ana's new soul is good and worthwhile. When he stands up for her, their relationship blooms. But can he love someone who may live only once, and will Ana's enemies--human and creature alike--let them be together? Ana needs to uncover the mistake that gave her someone else's life, but will her quest threaten the peace of Heart and destroy the promise of reincarnation for all?
Jodi Meadows expertly weaves soul-deep romance, fantasy, and danger into an extraordinary tale of new life.

Nu är jag uppe i 963 kr. 10 böcker (varav 5 av dem är inbundna) är rätt så bra. Dessutom blir det pengar över till frakten. Men men... det här är fortfarande bara saker jag vill, men som jag absolut inte har råd med... -.-

  1. Oj! Bara engelska böcker! Jag måste börja läsa böcker på engelska. Har bestämt mig för att läsa Rick Riordans 'Heroes of Olympus' när jag läst ut Percy Jackson serien :)

  3. Känner mig lite mallig eftersom jag har The Fault in Our Stars, City of Lost Souls, City of Fallen Angels och Pandemonium ;D Och så skäms jag lite för att jag överhuvudtaget inte ens läst Delirium än...
