[Neuzugänge] Mitbringsel aus England und Rezensionsexemplare

Hallöchen zusammen,
ich bin zurück aus meinem Auslandssemester und habe mir vorgenommen jetzt wieder regelmäßiger zu bloggen. Ich hoffe, dass dies auch klappt. Bisher sind in der letzten Woche bereits meine Rezensionen zu "Batman: Nightwalker" und "Königlich verliebt" erschienen, weitere werden folgen. Wie es mit der Serienwoche weitergeht, kann ich euch noch nicht sagen. Momentan fehlt mir ein wenig die Motivation alles zeitnah zu schauen. Der Netflix-Monat allerdings soll Ende diesen Monats wieder erscheinen. 
Heute allerdings habe ich euch erstmal meine Neuzugänge der letzten Monate mitgebracht. Neben Rezensionsexemplaren, welche in meiner Abwesenheit eintrafen, gibt es auch eine Menge Bücher, die ich in England gekauft habe. Ihr glaubt gar nicht, wie billig dort Bücher sind. Der Traum eines jeden Studentens.

[Rezi] Melissa de la Cruz - The Isle of the Lost [Descendants]

Evil tree. Bad Apple?
Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost–a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.
Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the Dragon’s Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad.

Red is 16 and lives with Granny in a cottage in the village, where boarding up the house and hiding during Wolfstime is a means of survival. Red help's Granny with Granny's baked good business, catering as well as door-to-door sales.
Red has a constant internal battle between her wild side and her strict, overprotective upbringing, and the issue of "control" as she discovers she has a hot temper when the "mean girls" push her too far. ("When we learn to control it, we needn't fear it," Rumpelstiltskin says in the series.) She has flashbacks to her 13th year when she received her cloak and the nickname "Red."
Plagued by nightmares she doesn't understand and a temper she can't control, Red struggles to save Granny's troubled business and to nurture her budding romance with Peter, even as the betrayal of her classmates awakens the wolf within.

[Rezi] Victoria Aveyard - Red Queen [Red Queen]

Graceling meets The Selection in debut novelist Victoria Aveyard's sweeping tale of seventeen-year-old Mare, a common girl whose once-latent magical power draws her into the dangerous intrigue of the king's palace. Will her power save her or condemn her?
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.
