Neuzugänge Oktober, November und Anfang Dezember (TEIL 1)

Hey Hi Hallo :)
Endlich kommt von mir nochmal ein Neuzugängepost :) Long overdue, denn es sind jetzt sage und schreibe 18 Bücher, die ich deshalb in zwei Posts aufteilen würde ... oops :D Das ganze ist eine Mischung aus ... naja ich bin eben schwach und aus Unibüchern und Geschenken :)


"Burton on Burton" - Tim Burton, Mark Salisbury:

A revised edition of the only book to explore the unique brilliance of director Tim Burton's work, including a new chapter on the making of "Sleepy Hollow." Still only in his thirties, Tim Burton has established himself in the past fifteen years as one of the great visionaries of film. With the "Batman "films, "Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Ed Wood, "and, most recently, "Sleepy Hollow, he "has continually broken new ground both visually and thematically, exploring the dark anguish--as well as the dark humor--that animates many of his characters while also creating a densely textured, sometimes bizarre look specific to each film. In "Burton on Burton," Burton talks to Mark Salisbury about his training as an animator at Disney, the importance of design in his films, and the recurring themes present in his work. In this revised edition, he also discusses the influence of 1950s sci-fi and 1970s disaster films on "Mars Attacks! "as well as how he conceived his highly stylized approach to the content and setting of "Sleepy Hollow, "his acclaimed retelling of the Washington Irving story that stars Johnny Depp, perhaps the actor most identified with Burton's work. Enhanced by stills from the films, storyboards, and illustrations of set designs for all his major films, "Burton on Burton "provides insights and information about the man and his work, throwing light on both his unique artistic vision and on the extraordinary films that have been the result. 

Auf dieses Buch bin ich so unglaublich gespannt! Ich LIEBE Tim Burton und war so froh, dass meine Mutter mir das Buch geschenkt hat :) Ich hoffe in den Weihnachtsferien ein gutes Stück damit voran zu kommen! So cool :)

"Dorothy Must Die" - Danielle Paige: 

I didn't ask for any of this. I didn't ask to be some kind of hero. But when your whole life gets swept up by a tornado-taking you with it-you have no choice but to go along, you know?
Sure, I've read the books. I've seen the movies. I know the song about the rainbow and the happy little blue birds. But I never expected Oz to look like this. To be a place where Good Witches can't be trusted, Wicked Witches may just be the good guys, and winged monkeys can be executed for acts of rebellion. There's still a road of yellow brick-but even that's crumbling.
What happened? Dorothy. They say she found a way to come back to Oz. They say she seized power and the power went to her head. And now no one is safe.
My name is Amy Gumm-and I'm the other girl from Kansas. I've been recruited by the Revolutionary Order of the Wicked. I've been trained to fight. And I have a mission:
Remove the Tin Woodman's heart.
Steal the Scarecrow's brain.
Take the Lion's courage. 

And-Dorothy must die.

Dieses Buch wurde mir kurzem auf Goodreads empfohlen und es klingt sehr interessant. Ich mag die Idee, dass wir eben nur Dorothy's begrentze Sicht auf die Handlung in Oz gesehen haben und für sie ist natürlich alles gut ausgegangen, aber wer weiß was für ein Chaos sie wirklich zurückgelassen hat? Dies ist eins der Bücher das ich auf jeden Fall bald anfangen will :)

"Furthermore" - Tahereh Mafi: 

There are only three things that matter to twelve-year-old Alice Alexis Queensmeadow: Mother, who wouldn't miss her; magic and color, which seem to elude her; and Father, who always loved her. The day Father disappears from Ferenwood he takes nothing but a ruler with him. But it's been almost three years since then, and Alice is determined to find him. She loves her father even more than she loves adventure, and she's about to embark on one to find the other.
But bringing Father home is no small matter. In order to find him she'll have to travel through the mythical, dangerous land of Furthermore, where down can be up, paper is alive, and left can be both right and very, very wrong. Her only companion is a boy named Oliver whose own magical ability is based in lies and deceit-and with a liar by her side in a land where nothing is as it seems, it will take all of Alice's wits (and every limb she's got) to find Father and return home to Ferenwood in one piece. On her quest to find Father, Alice must first find herself-and hold fast to the magic of love in the face of loss. 


"Shatter Me", "Unravel Me" und "Unite Me" von Tahereh Mafi fand ich super *-* "Ignite Me" muss ich endlich mal lesen und ich bin auch kurz davor wenn ich endlich mal Zeit hätte das Buch durchgehend ohne Pause zu lesen. "Furthermore" musste ich dafür auf jeden Fall haben und bin schon sehr gespannt :) (Das Hauptthema dieses Posts^^)

"Uprooted" - Naomi Novik:

Agnieszka loves her village, set deep in a peaceful valley. But the nearby enchanted forest casts a shadow over her home. Many have been lost to the Wood and none return unchanged. The villagers depend on an ageless wizard, the Dragon, to protect them from the forest's dark magic. However, his help comes at a terrible price. One young village woman must serve him for ten years, leaving all they value behind.
Agnieszka fears her dearest friend Kasia will be picked at the next choosing, for she's everything Agnieszka is not - beautiful, graceful and brave. Yet when the Dragon comes, it's not Kasia he takes.

 Dieses Buch wollte ich mir schon eine ganze Weile kaufen aber habs aus irgendeinem Grund nie getan, dann hat meine Mutter es mir überraschend geschenkt hat war ich total begeistert! Steht ebenfalls sehr sehr hoch auf meinem SuB, die Story klingt meiner Meinung nach sehr interessant :)

"Gemina" - Amie Kaufmann und Jay Kristoff:

Moving to a space station at the edge of the galaxy was always going to be the death of Hanna's social life. Nobody said it might actually get her killed.
The sci-fi saga that began with the breakout bestseller Illuminae continues on board the Jump Station Heimdall, where two new characters will confront the next wave of the BeiTech assault.
Hanna is the station captain's pampered daughter; Nik the reluctant member of a notorious crime family. But while the pair are struggling with the realities of life aboard the galaxy's most boring space station, little do they know that Kady Grant and the Hypatia are headed right toward Heimdall , carrying news of the Kerenza invasion.
When an elite BeiTech strike team invades the station, Hanna and Nik are thrown together to defend their home. But alien predators are picking off the station residents one by one, and a malfunction in the station's wormhole means the space-time continuum might be ripped in two before dinner. Soon Hanna and Nik aren't just fighting for their own survival; the fate of everyone on the Hypatia -and possibly the known universe-is in their hands.
But relax. They've totally got this. They hope.
Once again told through a compelling dossier of emails, IMs, classified files, transcripts, and schematics, Gemina raises the stakes of the Illuminae Files, hurling readers into an enthralling new story that will leave them breathless.


Muss ich hierzu noch viel sagen? "Illuminae" war eins meiner absoluten Lieblingsbücher seit langem und deshalb hatte ich mir "Gemina" vorbestellt :) Bisher aus Uni-Gründen leider keine Zeit das Buch zu lesen denn wenn ich es lese will ichs so an einem Stück durchlesen :)

"So Long and Thanks for all the Fish" - Douglas Adams: 

Just as Arthur Dent's sense of reality is in its dickiest state he suddenly finds the girl of his dreams. He finds her in the last place in which he would expect to find anything at all, but which 3,976,000,000 people will find oddly familiar. They go in search of God's Final Message to His Creation and, in a dramatic break from tradition, actually find it.

Dies ist der vierte Teil der "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" Reihe von Douglas Adams und da ich die ersten drei Bücher seeehr mochte wollte ich natürlich auch den vierten lesen. Ich bin schon gespannt wies weiter geht weil Douglas Adams es immer schafft in seine Bücher so viele neue Drehungen einzubauen dass es nie langweilig wird :)

"The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time" - Mark Haddon:

Christopher Boone is fifteen and has Asperger's Syndrome. He knows a great deal about maths and very little about human beings. He loves lists, patterns and the truth. He has never gone further than the end of the road on his own, but when he finds a neighbour's dog murdered he sets out on a journey which will turn his whole world upside down.

Dieses Buch haben wir in einem Seminar gelesen und ich habe gestern eine Rezension dazu hochgeladen. Ich bin sehr froh, dass die Professorin wollte, dass wir da Buch lesen, da ich es schon eine Weile lang lesen wollte aber es mir dann nie gekauft habe...Jetzt hab ichs ganz gelesen und finde es wirklich sehr empfehlenswert :)

"The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy and other Stories" - Tim Burton:

Twenty-three illustrated gothic tales from the dark corridors of the imagination of Tim Burton. Burton - the creative genius behind Batman, Edward Scissorhands, Sleepy Hollow and Nightmare Before Christmas, among others - now gives birth to a cast of gruesomely sympathetic children: misunderstood outcasts who struggle to find love and belonging in their cruel, cruel worlds. His lovingly lurid illustrations evoke both the sweetness and tragedy of these hopeful, yet hapless beings.

Was muss ich hierzu noch sagen? Ein Buch mit Illustrierten Gedichten und kurzen Erzählungen von Tim Burton?! Er ist einfach genial, sarkatisch, hat einen unglaublich schwarzen Humor ... ich LIEBE es! Wenn ihr mit sehr fiesen Witzen nicht klar kommt, wäre das hier eher nichts für euch, aber ich finds genial!
Diese Ausgabe war auch schon etwas teuer dafür, dass nur ein paar Gedichte drin sind, aber es gibt auch billigere, mir persönlich wars aber nicht ZU teuer weil Tim Burton <3

"Heart of Darkness"- Joseph Conrad:

'The mind of man is capable of anything - because everything is in it, all the past as well as all the future. What was there after all? Joy, fear, sorrow, devotion, rage - who can tell? - but truth - truth stripped of its cloak of time. Let the fool gape and shudder - the man knows, and can look on without a wink'
Marlow, a seaman, tells of a journey up the Congo. His goal is the troubled European and ivory trader Kurtz. Worshipped and feared by invaders as well as natives, Kurtz has become a godlike figure, his presence pervading the jungle like a thick, obscuring mist. As his boat labours further upstream, closer and closer to Kurtz's extraordinary and terrible domain, so Marlow finds his faith in himself and civilization crumbling. Conrad's Heart of Darkness has been considered the most important indictment of the evils of imperialism written to date.


Dieses Buch war eins das mein Professor in meinem "African Novels" Seminar immer mal wieder erwähnt hat obwohl wir es offiziell nicht lesen sollten. Deshalb hab ichs mir dennoch gekauft weil ich ein kleiner Streber bin und es interessant klang und die Penguin English Library Edition so hübsch war und nicht so teuer^^ Ich bin bis auf 23 Seiten durch und will versuchenes heute abend zu Ende zu lesen (ist etwas langsam zu lesen).

_______________________________________________________________

Sooo das wars dann mal für die erste Hälfte des Neuzugängeposts. Ich hoffe die zweite Hälfte folgt Dienstag oder Mittwoch, ich tu mein bestes, aber die Tage werden nochmal etwas stressiger so kurz vor den Weihnachtsferien :)

Kennt ihr eins oder mehrere dieser Bücher und habt sie auf der Wunschliste oder vielleicht schon gelesen?

Euch allen noch einen schönen Montagabend :)
Liebste Grüße,
Katharina
