    [Rezi] Katharine McGee – Majesty [American Royals]

    [Rezi] Katharine McGee – American Royals [American Royals]

    Klappentext Two princesses vying for the ultimate crown. Two girls vying for the prince’s heart. This is the story of the American royals. When America won the Revolutionary War, its people offered General George Washington a crown. Two and a half centuries later, the House of Washington still sits on the throne. Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. A future monarch and a backup battery. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren’t just any royals. They’re American. As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling.…

The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating.

Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage…

    [Rezi] Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan – The Royal We [The Royal We]

    Klappentext American Bex Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall – and Bex who finds herself accidentally in love with the heir to the British throne. Nick is wonderful, but he comes with unimaginable baggage: a complicated family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a Brit. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex looks back on how much she’s had to give up for…

    [Rezi] Tamara Bach – Honig mit Salz

    Klappentext Eltern sind peinlich, findet Ari. Dass sie sich dauernd streiten, macht es das Ganze nicht besser. Ari hatte sowieso keine Lust mehr auf Sommerurlaub mit ihren Eltern. Darauf, mit Papa an übervollen Stränden rumzuhängen, sich Mamas Vorträge über längst vergessene Tempel anzuhören oder die ganze Zeit die Streitereien der beiden mitzukriegen. Wie viel toller wäre es, wenn sie allein mit Elif verreisen könnte. Dann würden sie selbst bestimmen, was sie tun wollen, endlos reden oder einfach bis zur nächsten Insel schwimmen. Aber dann hätte sie auch Pegasos nicht kennengelernt, der mit dem Mofa durch die engen Gassen kurvt und Ari zum Träumen bringt. Von Morgen und von eigenen Reisen.…

    [Serien & Bücher] Schloss Festetics – Der echte Little Palace aus „Shadow and Bone“

    So manches Mal habe ich mich schon beim Serienschauen gewundert, wie viel Arbeit wohl in die Kulisse geflossen ist. Viele Kulissen sind gebaute Sets, aber vor allem in Historiendramen werden auch gerne echte Schlösser und Palais genutzt. Auch Netflix hat sich für die Adaption der Grischa-Trilogie „Shadow and Bone“ eine echtes Schloss als Stand-In für den Little Palace, dem Zuhause der Grisha, bedient: Schloss Festetics in Keszthely, Ungarn.
