Libri in lingua #7

Salve lettori,
come trascorrerete questo fine settimana bollente? Io a casa perchè devo lavorare, non vedo l'ora che arrivino le ferie!!!

Facendo il mio solito giretto per il web ho adocchiato due libri che sarei davvero curiosa di leggere, ovviamente tenendo le dita incrociate perchè vengano tradotti.

Il primo libro non è ancora uscito nemmeno in inglese, arriverà nelle librerie a settembre, ma siccome l'autrice l'ho già adorata in una trilogia, non potevo non nominarlo in questa rubrica e spero proprio arrivi presto in Italia.

Titolo: Warcross
Autore: Marie Lu
Trama:"For the millions who log in every day, Warcross isn't just a game - it's a way of life. Struggling to make ends meet, teenage hacker Emika Chen works as a bounty hunter, tracking down players who bet on the game illegally. Needing to make some quick cash, Emika takes a risk and hacks into the opening game of the international Warcross Championships - only to accidentally glitch herself into the action and become an overnight sensation.
Convinced she's going to be arrested, Emika is shocked when she gets a call from the game's creator, the elusive young billionaire Hideo Tanaka, with an irresistible offer. He needs a spy on the inside of this year's tournament in order to uncover a security problem . . . and he wants Emika for the job. Emika's whisked off to Tokyo and thrust into a world of fame and fortune that she's only dreamed of. But soon her investigation uncovers a sinister plot, with major consequences for the entire Warcross empire."

La trama mi attira parecchio, la trovo intrigante. Anche la copertina devo dire mi attira molto.
Il secondo libro è di un'autrice che non conosco, e di cui non so praticamente niente, non so se questo è il suo primo scritto o se invece ha già pubblicato qualcosa.

Titolo: The bone witch
Autore: Rin Chupeco
Trama:"Let me be clear: I never intended to raise my brother from his grave, though he may claim otherwise. If there’s anything I’ve learned from him in the years since, it’s that the dead hide truths as well as the living.
When Tea accidentally resurrects her brother from the dead, she learns she is different from the other witches in her family. Her gift for necromancy means that she’s a bone witch, a title that makes her feared and ostracized by her community. But Tea finds solace and guidance with an older, wiser bone witch, who takes Tea and her brother to another land for training.
In her new home, Tea puts all her energy into becoming an asha—one who can wield elemental magic. But dark forces are approaching quickly, and in the face of danger, Tea will have to overcome her obstacles…and make a powerful choice."

La copertina è spettacolare, e la trama non è da meno!

Vi ho incuriosito?

Un saluto
