Uh la la, e che succede? Succede che una volta al mese, in sostituzione della rubrica WWW o in aggiunta ad essa, ci sarà il Waiting On Wednesday, in cui vi svelo le uscite del mese che attendo con trepidazione :D Questi sono alcuni dei romanzi che usciranno a Febbraio e che sono nel mio Waiting For ;) Abbiamo il nuovo standalone strappalacrime della Walters (ovviamente già inserito nei miei To Buy), il nuovo thriller della Littlefield (che io ho avuto modo di apprezzare con la trilogia urban fantasy Aftertime), il secondo attesissimo volume della serie You della Kepnes (spero ardentemente che la Mondadori lo pubblichi in tempi strettissimissimi, perché ho bisogno del mio Joe-Joe) e il nuovo romanzo di un'autrice che ancora non conosco (scovato l'altro giorno e aggiunto non appena ho constatato che tratta un triangolo amoroso!)
He found me in blood and tears.
I stayed with him through darkness and fire.
We loved each other in the moment between innocence and bitter truth.
We were the kids easily ignored, who grew into adults we hardly knew.
We weren’t meant to last forever. And we didn’t.
He ran away.
I tried to move on.
Yet I never stopped thinking about the boy who had fought to keep me alive in a world that would have swallowed me whole. He was the past that I buried, but never forgot.
Until the day I found him again, years after believing I had lost him forever.
And in cold, resentful eyes, I saw the heart of the man who had been everything when I had nothing at all. So I vowed to hold onto the second chance that was stolen from the children we had been.
Sometimes fate is ugly. Life can be twisted.
And who we are can be ruined by who we once were.
For two people who had survived so much, we would have to learn how to hold on before we were forced to let go.
Dopo il boom petrolifero, il North Dakota si è riempito di «campi», vere e proprie baraccopoli piene di uomini ingaggiati negli impianti, alla periferia di città impreparate ad accoglierli. In posti come questi, isolati e fuori dal tempo, è facile far sparire una persona. Quando due ragazzi appena arrivati svaniscono senza lasciare traccia, sono solo le loro madri a credere di poterli ritrovare. Nonostante le rassicurazioni della polizia, le due donne sono convinte che la compagnia petrolifera stia coprendo qualcosa. Non solo la sparizione dei loro figli. Così, per quanto diverse l’una dall’altra, sigillano un patto per andare alla loro ricerca. Perché se nulla può fermare una madre, due insieme sono invincibili.
In the compulsively readable follow-up to her widely acclaimed debut novel, You, Caroline Kepnes weaves a tale that Booklist calls “the love child of Holden Caulfield and Patrick Bateman.”
Hidden Bodies marks the return of a voice that Stephen King described as original and hypnotic, and through the divisive and charmingly sociopathic character of Joe Goldberg, Kepnes satirizes and dissects our culture, blending suspense with scathing wit.
Joe Goldberg is no stranger to hiding bodies. In the past ten years, this thirty-something has buried four of them, collateral damage in his quest for love. Now he’s heading west to Los Angeles, the city of second chances, determined to put his past behind him.
In Hollywood, Joe blends in effortlessly with the other young upstarts. He eats guac, works in a bookstore, and flirts with a journalist neighbor. But while others seem fixated on their own reflections, Joe can’t stop looking over his shoulder. The problem with hidden bodies is that they don’t always stay that way. They re-emerge, like dark thoughts, multiplying and threatening to destroy what Joe wants most: truelove. And when he finds it in a darkened room in Soho House, he’s more desperate than ever to keep his secrets buried. He doesn’t want to hurt his new girlfriend—he wants to be with her forever. But if she ever finds out what he’s done, he may not have a choice...
Sadie Hunt isn’t perfect—but her husband is. Nathan Hunt has her coffee waiting every morning. He holds her hand until the last second. He worships the Manhattan sidewalk she walks on. Until one day, he just…stops. And Sadie finds herself in the last place she ever expected to be. Lonely in her marriage.
When rugged and sexy Finn Cohen moves into the apartment across the hall, he and Sadie share an immediate spark. Finn reveals dreams for a different life. Sadie wants to save her marriage. Their secrets should keep them apart, not ignite a blistering affair. But while Sadie’s marriage runs colder by the day, she and Finn burn hotter.
Her husband doesn’t want her anymore.
The man next door would give up everything to have her.
E voi invece cosa aspettate con impazienza questo mese?
