door Hebban Ready to Read 4 reacties
Maandelijks verschijnen er wereldwijd duizenden nieuwe boeken. We maken je daar elke maand al een beetje wegwijs in door onze keuze uit te lichten in 'De negentien van'. Samen met onze partner Van Ditmar Boekenimport zetten we ook onze Engelstalige keuze voor de komende maand op een rijtje.

Bridge of Clay

Van Markus Zusak

Hij brak door met De boekendief, een prachtige roman uit 2005. Nu, dertien jaar later, is er een nieuwe roman van Markus Zusak. Lees een fragment (externe site).

The breathtaking story of five brothers who bring each other up in a world run by their own rules. As the Dunbar boys love and fight and learn to reckon with the adult world, they discover the moving secret behind their father’s disappearance. At the center of the Dunbar family is Clay, a boy who will build a bridge—for his family, for his past, for greatness, for his sins, for a miracle.

The question is, how far is Clay willing to go? And how much can he overcome?

Written in powerfully inventive language and bursting with heart, BRIDGE OF CLAY is signature Zusak.

Bridge of Clay is per 11 oktober leverbaar. Op 20 november volgt de Nederlandse vertaling, De bruggenbouwer. Er is momenteel een Hebban Leesclub gaande met Bridge of Clay, waar je een kijkje kunt nemen. Pas op met de Leesclubdiscussie, want daar kun je over spoilers struikelen.


Van Sarah Perry

From the author of The Essex Serpent comes a dazzlingly inventive and deeply moving novel that speaks urgently to our times. Exquisitely written, and gripping until the very last page, this is a masterpiece of moral complexity, asking us profound questions about mercy, redemption, and how to make the best of our conflicted world.

For centuries, the mysterious dark-robed figure has roamed the globe, searching for those whose complicity and cowardice have fed into the rapids of history's darkest waters - and now, in Sarah Perry's breathtaking follow-up to The Essex Serpent, it is heading in our direction.

It has been years since Helen Franklin left England. In Prague, working as a translator, she has found a home of sorts - or, at least, refuge. That changes when her friend Karel discovers a mysterious letter in the library, a strange confession and a curious warning that speaks of Melmoth the Witness, a dark legend found in obscure fairy tales and antique village lore. As such superstition has it, Melmoth travels through the ages, dooming those she persuades to join her to a damnation of timeless, itinerant solitude. To Helen it all seems the stuff of unenlightened fantasy.

But, unaware, as she wanders the cobblestone streets Helen is being watched. And then Karel disappears....

Melmoth is vanaf 2 oktober leverbaar. De gelijknamige Nederlandstalige editie volgt op 21 november.


Van Barbara Kingsolver

2016 Vineland: Willa is a woman braced against the changes of her life and the crumbling house that contains her. 1871 Vineland: Thatcher Greenwood is an advocate of Charles Darwin’s work, keen to communicate his ideas to his students.

A Spark of Light

Van Jodi Picoult

The Center for women's reproductive health offers a last chance at hope - but nobody ends up there by choice.

Now life and death decisions are being made horrifyingly real: a lone protester with a gun has taken the staff, patients and visitors hostage.

A Keeper

Van Graham Norton

The mystery of Elizabeth's father has never been solved by the people of Buncarragh - not for lack of speculation.

The Reckoning

Van John Grisham

New York Times bestselling author John Grisham returns to Clanton, Mississippi, to tell the story of an unthinkable murder and the bizarre trial that follows it, in this powerful new legal thriller.

Pete Banning was Clanton's favorite son, a returning war hero, the patriarch of a prominent family, a farmer, father, neighbor, and a faithful member of the Methodist church. Then one cool October morning in 1946. he rose early, drove into town, walked into the Church, and calmly shot and killed the Reverend Dexter Bell. As if the murder wasn't shocking enough, it was even more baffling that Pete's only statement about it—to the sheriff, to his defense attorney, to the judge, to his family and friends, and to the people of Clanton—was "I have nothing to say." And so the murder of the esteemed Reverend Bell became the most mysterious and unforgettable crime Ford County had ever known.

The Reckoning is leverbaar vanaf 23 oktober. Op diezelfde dag verschijnt de Nederlandse editie, Het oordeel.


Van Stephen King

Castle Rock is a small town, where word gets around quickly.

Van Edward Carey

Exuberant and utterly distinctive, a momentous stretch of French history through the eyes of Marie Groscholtz, a bloodstained, diminutive crumb of a servant girl who survives the harshest of beginnings and most violent of revolutions to craft a place in history. A stunning artefact of a novel; a wonderfully grisly reimagining of the life and times of Madame Tussaud.

Little ligt nu al in de winkels. Een vertaling wordt niet verwacht.

The Boneless Mercies

Van April Tucholke

So when she hears of an unstoppable monster slaughtering men, women, and children in a nearby town, she decides this is the Mercies' one chance out. But Frey soon learns the real meaning of sacrifice, and the cost of guts and glory. Her actions may change the fate of girls in the world forever.

The Book of Magic

Van Gardner Dozois

A new anthology celebrating the witches and sorcerers of epic fantasy—featuring stories by George R. R. Martin, Scott Lynch, Megan Lindholm, and many others!

Hot on the heels of Gardner Dozois’s acclaimed anthology The Book of Swords comes this companion volume devoted to magic. How could it be otherwise? For every Frodo, there is a Gandalf . . . and a Saruman. For every Dorothy, a Glinda . . . and a Wicked Witch of the West. What would Harry Potter be without Albus Dumbledore . . . and Severus Snape? Figures of wisdom and power, possessing arcane, often forbidden knowledge, wizards and sorcerers are shaped—or misshaped—by the potent magic they seek to wield. Yet though their abilities may be godlike, these men and women remain human—some might say all too human. Such is their curse. And their glory.

In these pages, seventeen of today’s top fantasy writers—including award-winners Elizabeth Bear, John Crowley, Kate Elliott, K. J. Parker, Tim Powers, and Liz Williams—cast wondrous spells that thrillingly evoke the mysterious, awesome, and at times downright terrifying worlds where magic reigns supreme: worlds as far away as forever, and as near as next door.

The Book of Magic is leverbaar vanaf 16 oktober, een Nederlandse vertaling wordt niet verwacht.
