In My Mailbox #9 + Tipp

Ich habe mal wieder Bücher bestellt! Ich möchte euch auch kurz von der Aktion bei amazon erzählen, die der Grund dafür war, die 3 Bücher zu bestellen.
Bei amazon gibt es momentan einige englische Bücher im 3er-Pack für 15€ zu haben, d.h. 5€ pro Buch. Ich finde es ist wirklich einen Blick wert, wenn man sowieso die meisten Bücher auf Englisch liest, so wie ich.
HIER geht es zu der Aktion.

Und nun zu den Büchern die ich mir dann letzendlich bestellt habe:

Tabitha Suzuma - Forbidden
She is pretty and talented - sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But ...They are brother and sister. Forbidden will take you on an extraordinary emotional journey. Passionate and shocking, this is a book you will remember long after you have put it down.

Jon Krakauer - Into the Wild
What would possess a gifted young man recently graduated from college to literally walk away from his life? Noted outdoor writer and mountaineer Jon Krakauer tackles that question in his reporting on Chris McCandless, whose emaciated body was found in an abandoned bus in the Alaskan wilderness in 1992.

Ian McEwan - Atonement
We meet 13-year-old Briony Tallis in the summer of 1935, as she attempts to stage a production of her new drama The Trials of Arabella to welcome home her elder, idolised brother Leon. But she soon discovers that her cousins, the glamorous Lola and the twin boys Jackson and Pierrot, aren't up to the task, and directorial ambitions are abandoned as more interesting preoccupations come onto the scene. The charlady's son Robbie Turner appears to be forcing Briony's sister Cecilia to strip in the Fountain and sends her obscene letters; Leon has brought home a dim chocolate magnate keen for a war to promote his new "Army Amo" bar; and upstairs Briony's migraine-stricken mother Emily keeps tabs on the house from her bed. Soon, secrets emerge that change the lives of everyone present...
