Nog niet vertaalde boeken die ik wil lezen

donderdag 28 mei 2015

Ik lees al mijn boeken in het Nederlands. Ik kan wel Engels lezen, maar ik begrijp niet elk woord en wil zo veel mogelijk genieten van het boek. Soms is het dus best balen als boeken niet in het Nederlands vertaald zijn, maar ze me wel ontzettend leuk lijken.

Feyre's survival rests upon her ability to hunt and kill – the forest where she lives is a cold, bleak place in the long winter months. So when she spots a deer in the forest being pursued by a wolf, she cannot resist fighting it for the flesh. But to do so, she must kill the predator and killing something so precious comes at a price ... 

Dragged to a magical kingdom for the murder of a faerie, Feyre discovers that her captor, his face obscured by a jewelled mask, is hiding far more than his piercing green eyes would suggest. Feyre's presence at the court is closely guarded, and as she begins to learn why, her feelings for him turn from hostility to passion and the faerie lands become an even more dangerous place. Feyre must fight to break an ancient curse, or she will lose him forever.

Dit klinkt zo geweldig! Echt iets voor mij.
Maar hij is pas sinds mei 2015 uit in het Engels, dus hij komt vast wel in het Nederlands.

Mare Barrow's world is divided by blood—those with common, Red blood serve the Silver- blooded elite, who are gifted with superhuman abilities. Mare is a Red, scraping by as a thief in a poor, rural village, until a twist of fate throws her in front of the Silver court. Before the king, princes, and all the nobles, she discovers she has an ability of her own.

To cover up this impossibility, the king forces her to play the role of a lost Silver princess and betroths her to one of his own sons. As Mare is drawn further into the Silver world, she risks everything and uses her new position to help the Scarlet Guard—a growing Red rebellion—even as her heart tugs her in an impossible direction. One wrong move can lead to her death, but in the dangerous game she plays, the only certainty is betrayal.

Ook dit klinkt geweldig en ook heel uniek.
Ook deze is nog niet zo lang uit, dus hij komt vast wel in het Nederlands.

Maar, er zijn ook boeken die ik juist in het Engels wil hebben. Zoals deze.

We all know that growing up is hard to do, and sometimes the only thing that makes it better are the reassuring words of someone who has walked that bumpy road just a few steps ahead of you and somehow ended up as a fully-functioning adult. Carrie Hope Fletcher is that person.* Thanks to her phenomenally popular YouTube videos, Carrie has become an 'honorary big sister' to hundreds of thousands of young people who turn to her for advice, friendship and, most of all, the knowledge that things will get better.

Ik heb het al vaker verteld, maar Carrie Hope Fletcher is mijn favoriete YouTuber. Nu heeft ze ook een boek geschreven over hoe je de tienerjaren kunt 'overleven'. Juist omdat zij Engels is en het door haar wordt verteld, wil ik hem in het Engels lezen. Ik heb hem nog steeds niet, doordat ik niet veel geld heb. Maar o, wat wil ik hem graag.

Included are stories from Winnie-the-Pooh, The House at Pooh Corner and poems from When We Were Very Young and Now We are Six. A. A Milne's stories about Pooh and his forest friends have been loved by generations of children and their parents since the publication of the first book of stories, Winnie-the-Pooh in 1926. Pooh first appeared as a character in Milne's poetry, but it was the timeless tales of the Hundred Acre Wood that struck a chord with readers- and continues to do so today. This edition of the complete stories and poems is the perfect gift for christenings, birthdays or Christmas.

Winnie the Pooh is altijd al mijn favoriete Disney personage geweest, maar ook buiten Disney vind ik hem geweldig. Als klein kind had ik al een origineel boek, maar die kan ik nergens meer vinden en daar baal ik zo van. Helaas zijn deze boeken ontzettend duur. Dit exemplaar is bijvoorbeeld €57,99 euro. Wat? Daar ga ik dus niet mijn geld aan uitgeven, maar alsnog wil ik hem heel graag.
