What's hot!

In questa rubrica della domenica riporterò le scoperte settimanali di libri interessanti e che magari ho acquistato!

Questa settimana è dedicata alle nuove scoperte e nuove entrate direttamente da NetGalley!!

Titolo: Being Henry David
Autore: Cal Armistead

Pubblicazione: 1 marzo 2013

Seventeen-year-old "Hank" has found himself at Penn Station in New York City with no memory of anything--who he is, where he came from, why he's running away. His only possession is a worn copy of Walden by Henry David Thoreau. And so he becomes Henry David--or "Hank"--and takes first to the streets, and then to the only destination he can think of--Walden Pond in Concord, Massachusetts.

Cal Armistead's remarkable debut novel is about a teen in search of himself. Hank begins to piece together recollections from his past. The only way Hank can discover his present is to face up to the realities of his grievous memories. He must come to terms with the tragedy of his past, to stop running, and to find his way home.

Titolo: Brambleman
Autore: Johathan Grant

Pubblicazione:  15 maggio 2012

Down-and-out Atlanta writer Charlie Sherman has no idea what madness awaits him when a mysterious stranger convinces him to finish a dead man's book about a horrific crime that's gone unpunished for decades. What Charlie inherits is an unwieldy manuscript about the historic mob-driven expulsion of more than 1,000 blacks from Forsyth County, Georgia in 1912.

During the course of his work, Charlie uncovers a terrible secret involving a Forsyth County land grab. Due to its proximity to Atlanta, the stolen farm is now worth $20 million-and a sale is pending. When he finds the land's rightful owner, Charlie becomes convinced he's been chosen by a Higher Power to wreak justice and vengeance on those who profit from wrongdoing. That's when things go horribly wrong.

Titolo: A study in revenge
Autore: Kieran Shields

Pubblicazione:  8 gennaio 2013

The highly anticipated sequel to The Truth of All Things, featuring the same intriguing detective duo in a similar spooky setting and gothic time period: 1890s New England.      In the summer of 1893, a thief named Cosgrove is shot while delivering a stolen artifact in Portland, Maine. Days after the thief's burial, police detective Archie Lean investigates when the man's body turns up again, badly scorched, in an abandoned house. The scene has been staged to give the appearance that Cosgrove somehow rose from the dead, entered the house on his own, all while on fire. Occult symbols and messages appear near the crime. Perplexed as to why anyone would stage such an elaborate hoax, Lean summons his erstwhile partner, Perceval Grey, a brilliant former Pinkerton detective who happens to be half Native American.
     What comes next is a breathless chase for the thunderstone, a mysterious, centuries-old relic that wields cryptic yet potentially incredible power. From the dark streets of Portland to the provincial drawing rooms of Brahmin Boston, A Study in Revenge is a fascinating follow-up by an up-and-coming historical mystery writer.

Titolo: Ex heroes
Autore: Peter Clines

Pubblicazione: 26 febbraio 2013

Stealth. Gorgon. Regenerator. Cerberus. Zzzap. The Mighty Dragon. They were heroes, using their superhuman abilities to make Los Angeles a better place. 
 Then the plague of living death spread around the globe. Billions died, civilization fell, and the city of angels was left a desolate zombie wasteland.  
Now, a year later, the Mighty Dragon and his companions protect a last few thousand survivors in their film-studio-turned-fortress, the Mount. Scarred and traumatized by the horrors they’ve endured, the heroes fight the armies of ravenous ex-humans at their citadel’s gates, lead teams out to scavenge for supplies—and struggle to be the symbols of strength and hope the survivors so desperately need. 
But the hungry ex-humans aren’t the only threats the heroes face. Former allies, their powers and psyches hideously twisted, lurk in the city’s ruins. And just a few miles away, another group is slowly amassing power . . . led by an enemy with the most terrifying ability of all. 

... Avrei bisogno della stanza dello spirito e del tempo di Goku per leggerli tutti *_*
