Nachdem ich hier Bücher sammle und einfach nicht dazu gekommen bin, mal zu posten was sich bei mir alles stapelt, werd ich das jetzt nachholen!

An seinem 83. Geburtstag kommt Eddie bei einem Unfall ums Leben. Es scheint das tragische Ende eines unbedeutenden Daseins. Doch im Jenseits begegnet er fünf Menschen, die in seinem Leben eine entscheidende Rolle gespielt haben. Anhand ihrer Erzählungen offenbaren sie Eddie Zusammenhänge in seinem Schicksal, die ihm bislang verborgen waren. Sie lehren ihn, sich mit seinem Schiccksal zu versöhnen, und zeigen ihm den verborgenen Sinn in einem nur scheinbar bedeutungslosen Sein.

Sie nennen sich das Rudel und keiner traut dem anderen. Doch Juli ist froh, dass die abgerissenen Gestalten, die am Rand der Normalität leben, sie überhaupt aufgenommen haben. Nachdem ihr der Zugang zur Welt der Pheen verwehrt wird, hat sie keine Heimat mehr. Schlimmer noch, innerhalb der Normalität wird sie als letzte lebende Phee und gefährliche Mörderin gejagt. Verzweifelt versucht Juli die Brücken zu ihrem früheren Leben wiederherzustellen. Doch bald muss sie erkennen, dass die Freunde von einst zu Feinden geworden sind und Verrat in der neuen Welt an der Tagesordnung ist ...

Ever since the draug - mysterious creatures that prey on vampires - took over Morganville, the lives of student Claire Danvers and her friends have been thrown into turmoil. Most of the residents have evacuated, but Claire, Shane, Eve, and Michael have chosen to stay and fight.
Using the town's water system to spread, the draug have rapidly multiplied. Things in Morganville look grim, especially since vampire Amelie - the town Founder - has been infected by the master draug's bite. Now, if CLaire and her friends don't figure out how to cure Melie and defeat the draug, it looks as though Morganville will become little more than a ghost town ...

'R' is a zombie. He has no name, no memories and no pulse, but he has dreams. He is a little different from his fellow Dead.
Amongst the ruins of an abandoned city, R meets a girl. Her name is Julie and she is the opposite of everything he knows - warm and bright and very much alive, she is a blast of colour in a dreary grey landscape. For reasons he can't understand, R chooses to save Julie instead of eating her, and a tense yet strangely tender relationship begins.
This has never happened before. It breaks the rules and defies logic, but R is no longer content with life in the grave. He wants to breathe again, he wants to live, and Julie wants to help him. But their grim, rotting world won't be changed without a fight ...

Vampires have never been as popular or as cool as they are today and as seen in HBO's True Blood they have never been more edgy, gory or sexy. Arriving on screen in 2008, Alan Ball's adaption of The Southern Vampire Myteries by Charlaine Harris has exploited the creative freedoms of the HBO brand and captured a cult audience with its passionate, blood-drenched visuals and stories. From viral webisodes depicting vampires announcing themselves on TV to the steamy title sequence and the show's uninhibited use of language, sex and gore, True Blood has quickly gained status as cult TV with bite.
True Blood posed the question of what would happen if vampire 'came out of the coffin' and this book considers the representations of sexuality, race and class in a series that engages directly with prejudice and civil rights. Contributors also consider True Blood's generic roots in TV horror, paranormal romance and Southern Cothic, the wider contexts of fairy tales and religion, the marketing of the series and the activities of its fans. Written for students, scholars and fans. True Blood: Investigating Vampires and Southern Gothic explores the hidden depths of True Blood's vampire bars, small town communities and haunted bayous.

  5. Deine Ausgabe von "Warm Bodies" ist ja cool :D
    Hast du das von Mitch Albom schon gelesen? Meine Tante hat mir das vor Jahren mal zum Geburtstag geschenkt. Hat mir echt gut gefallen, kann mich nur leider an keine Details mehr erinnern. Bloß das Ende. Das ist irgendwie hängen geblieben weil es richtig schön ist :)

    1. Ja, die Ausgabe ist wirklich hübsch - und das Buch ist so gut!
