oggi voglio mostrarvi due libri che ho trovato molto interessanti, di due scrittrici di cui in Italia abbiamo letto le loro saghe.
Il primo libro vorrei che arrivasse il prima possibile, anche se in effetti la Mondadori sta ancora pubblicando la sua precedente saga, e delle novelle non si sa ancora niente, però incrocio le dita che faccia arrivare tutto di questa bravissima scrittrice.
Autore: Marissa Meyer
Long before she was the Queen of Hearts, Catherine Pinkerton was just a girl who wanted to fall in love.Catherine may be one of the most desired girls in Wonderland, and a favorite of the unmarried King of Hearts, but her interests lie elsewhere. A talented baker, all she wants is to open a shop with her best friend. But according to her mother, such a goal is unthinkable for the young woman who could be the next queen. Then Cath meets Jest, the handsome and mysterious court joker. For the first time, she feels the pull of true attraction. At the risk of offending the king and infuriating her parents, she and Jest enter into an intense, secret courtship. Cath is determined to define her own destiny and fall in love on her terms. But in a land thriving with magic, madness, and monsters, fate has other plans."
La trama è bellissima e mi piacerebbe proprio leggere un retelling sulla Regina Rossa.
Titolo: Flame in the mist
Autore: Renée Ahdieh
Trama:"Mariko has always known that being a woman means she's not in control of her own fate. But Mariko is the daughter of a prominent samurai and a cunning alchemist in her own right, and she refuses to be ignored. When she is ambushed by a group of bandits known as the Black Clan enroute to a political marriage to Minamoto Raiden - the emperor's son - Mariko realises she has two choices: she can wait to be rescued...or she can take matters into her own hands, hunt down the clan and find the person who wants her dead.Disguising herself as a peasant boy, Mariko infiltrates the Black Clan's hideout and befriends their leader, the rebel ronin Ranmaru, and his second-in-command, Okami. Ranmaru and Okami warm to Mariko, impressed by her intellect and ingenuity. But as Mariko gets closer to the Black Clan, she uncovers a dark history of secrets that will force her to question everything she's ever known."
L'ambientazione è assolutamente originale, mi piacerebbe proprio leggerlo.
