2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések | újdonságfigyelő

Mostanában rákattantam a Goodreadsre, szóval úgy gondoltam, hogy összegyűjtöm a 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenéseket. Ebben a bejegyzésben a nemzetközi könyvújdonságokat igyekeztem egy csokorba szedni, abból is azokat a megjelenéseket, melyekre én is kíváncsi vagyok.

A lista összeállításának hátránya, hogy sajnos közben az egyik könyvet meg is vettem ebookban, mert 25-ről 5 dollárra volt leakciózva az Amazonon. 🙈 Ez a The Atlas Six, ami egyébként faramuci módon nem kifejezetten friss megjelenés.

2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések

Ha könyves blogot ír az ember, és sűrűn böngészi a könyves listákat, akkor előbb vagy utóbb elkezdenek gyűlni azok a kötetek, amikből ő maga is szívesen állítana össze listát. A 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések, azaz újdonságfigyelő is így született meg. Hogy havi állandó rovat lesz-e, az pedig a jövő zenéje.

Ebben a könyves listában azokat a regényeket gyűjtöttem össze, amiket én is szívesen olvasnék, vagy akár lehet, hogy fogok is. És amiket nagyon szívesen látnék magyar kiadásban is. Azért sejtem, hogy ebből néhány nagy valószínűséggel meg fog jelenni kis hazánkban is, például a már említett The Atlas Six, ami jelenleg a TikTokon tarol – tavaly összegyűjtöttem már egy booktokos listát is.

V.E. Schwab: Gallant

A Gallantra nagyon kíváncsi vagyok, mert az Addie LaRue láthatatlan életét imádtam a szerzőtől. Hamarosan jó lenne elolvasni Schwab magyarul megjelent köteteit is, viszont az új regényét valószínűleg szintén megvárom magyar nyelven, mert valószínűleg valamelyik kiadó fogja hozni. Legalábbis bízom benne.

Everything casts a shadow. Even the world we live in. And as with every shadow, there is a place where it must touch. A seam, where the shadow meets its source.

Olivia Prior has grown up in Merilance School for girls, and all she has of her past is her mother’s journal—which seems to unravel into madness. Then, a letter invites Olivia to come home—to Gallant. Yet when Olivia arrives, no one is expecting her. But Olivia is not about to leave the first place that feels like home, it doesn’t matter if her cousin Matthew is hostile or if she sees half-formed ghouls haunting the hallways.

Olivia knows that Gallant is hiding secrets, and she is determined to uncover them. When she crosses a ruined wall at just the right moment, Olivia finds herself in a place that is Gallant—but not. The manor is crumbling, the ghouls are solid, and a mysterious figure rules over all. Now Olivia sees what has unraveled generations of her family, and where her father may have come from.

Olivia has always wanted to belong somewhere, but will she take her place as a Prior, protecting our world against the Master of the House? Or will she take her place beside him?

Simone St. James: The Book of Cold Cases

A szerző neve talán sokaknak kevésbé lehet ismerős, ám ő jegyzi az Alkony Motelt, amit én személy szerint nagyon szerettem tavaly ősszel. A 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések között ezen eléggé elgondolkodtam, hogy elolvassam-e eredetiben, de még egy kicsit tolom, hátha az Agave hozza magyarul is.

A true crime blogger gets more than she bargained for while interviewing the woman acquitted of two cold case slayings in this chilling new novel from the New York Times bestselling author of The Sun Down Motel.

In 1977, Claire Lake, Oregon, was shaken by the Lady Killer Murders: Two men, seemingly randomly, were murdered with the same gun, with strange notes left behind. Beth Greer was the perfect suspect–a rich, eccentric twenty-three-year-old woman, seen fleeing one of the crimes. But she was acquitted, and she retreated to the isolation of her mansion.

Oregon, 2017. Shea Collins is a receptionist, but by night, she runs a true crime website, the Book of Cold Cases–a passion fueled by the attempted abduction she escaped as a child. When she meets Beth by chance, Shea asks her for an interview. To Shea’s surprise, Beth says yes.

They meet regularly at Beth’s mansion, though Shea is never comfortable there. Items move when she’s not looking, and she could swear she’s seen a girl outside the window. The allure of learning the truth about the case from the smart, charming Beth is too much to resist, but even as they grow closer, Shea senses something isn’t right. Is she making friends with a manipulative murderer, or are there other dangers lurking in the darkness of the Greer house?

Kate Quinn: The Diamond Eye

Az Alice hálózatát imádtam, igaz, A vadásznőt még nem olvastam, noha a polcomon van, de Quinn újdonsága is felkeltette a figyelmem.

The New York Times bestselling author of The Rose Code returns with an unforgettable World War II tale of a quiet bookworm who becomes history’s deadliest female sniper. Based on a true story.

In the snowbound city of Kiev (now known as Kyiv), wry and bookish history student Mila Pavlichenko organizes her life around her library job and her young son–but Hitler’s invasion of Ukraine and Russia sends her on a different path. Given a rifle and sent to join the fight, Mila must forge herself from studious girl to deadly sniper–a lethal hunter of Nazis known as Lady Death. When news of her three hundredth kill makes her a national heroine, Mila finds herself torn from the bloody battlefields of the eastern front and sent to America on a goodwill tour.

Still reeling from war wounds and devastated by loss, Mila finds herself isolated and lonely in the glittering world of Washington, DC–until an unexpected friendship with First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt and an even more unexpected connection with a silent fellow sniper offer the possibility of happiness. But when an old enemy from Mila’s past joins forces with a deadly new foe lurking in the shadows, Lady Death finds herself battling her own demons and enemy bullets in the deadliest duel of her life.

Margaret Atwood: Burning Questions: Essays and Occasional Pieces, 2004 to 2021

Atwoodot imádom, így még ha nagy valószínűséggel nem is fogom ezt a kötetet eredetiben olvasni, mégis mindenképp helye van a 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések listában. 🧡

This brilliant selection of essays—funny, erudite, endlessly curious, uncannily prescient—seeks answers to Burning Questions such as:

• Why do people everywhere, in all cultures, tell stories?
• How much of yourself can you give away without evaporating?
• How can we live on our planet?
• Is it true? And is it fair?
• What do zombies have to do with authoritarianism?

In over fifty pieces Atwood aims her prodigious intellect and impish humor at the world, and reports back to us on what she finds. The roller-coaster period covered in the collection brought an end to the end of history, a financial crash, the rise of Trump and a pandemic. From debt to tech, the climate crisis to freedom, from when to dispense advice to the young (answer: only when asked) and how to define granola, we have no better guide than Atwood to the many and varied mysteries of our universe.

Rebecca Serle: One Italian Summer

Ettől a szerzőtől nem olvastam még, viszont érdekesen hangzik a fülszövege a regénynek.

When Katy’s mother dies, she is left reeling. Carol wasn’t just Katy’s mom, but her best friend and first phone call. She had all the answers and now, when Katy needs her the most, she is gone. To make matters worse, their planned mother-daughter trip of a lifetime looms: two weeks in Positano, the magical town Carol spent the summer right before she met Katy’s father. Katy has been waiting years for Carol to take her, and now she is faced with embarking on the adventure alone.

But as soon as she steps foot on the Amalfi Coast, Katy begins to feel her mother’s spirit. Buoyed by the stunning waters, beautiful cliffsides, delightful residents, and, of course, delectable food, Katy feels herself coming back to life.

And then Carol appears—in the flesh, healthy, sun-tanned, and thirty years old. Katy doesn’t understand what is happening, or how—all she can focus on is that she has somehow, impossibly, gotten her mother back. Over the course of one Italian summer, Katy gets to know Carol, not as her mother, but as the young woman before her. She is not exactly who Katy imagined she might be, however, and soon Katy must reconcile the mother who knew everything with the young woman who does not yet have a clue.

Sabaa Tahir: All My Rage

Ez a regény sokszor szembe jött velem, így szerintem érdemes lesz odafigyelni rá. Nem utolsó sorban pedig hasonló érzésem van az All My Rage-dzsel kapcsolatban, mint A nő nem férfivel – utóbbi pedig nagyon tetszik.

Lahore, Pakistan. Then.

Misbah is a dreamer and storyteller, newly married to Toufiq in an arranged match. After their young life is shaken by tragedy, they come to the United States and open the Cloud’s Rest Inn Motel, hoping for a new start.

Juniper, California. Now.

Salahudin and Noor are more than best friends; they are family. Growing up as outcasts in the small desert town of Juniper, California, they understand each other the way no one else does. Until The Fight, which destroys their bond with the swift fury of a star exploding.

Now, Sal scrambles to run the family motel as his mother Misbah’s health fails and his grieving father loses himself to alcoholism. Noor, meanwhile, walks a harrowing tightrope: working at her wrathful uncle’s liquor store while hiding the fact that she’s applying to college so she can escape him—and Juniper—forever.

When Sal’s attempts to save the motel spiral out of control, he and Noor must ask themselves what friendship is worth—and what it takes to defeat the monsters in their pasts and the ones in their midst.

From one of today’s most cherished and bestselling young adult authors comes a breathtaking novel of young love, old regrets, and forgiveness—one that’s both tragic and poignant in its tender ferocity.

Bob Odenkirk: Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama: A Memoir

A 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések egyik nay meglepetése volt ez a kötet. Mostanában egyre jobban vonzanak a memoárok, Bob Odenkirk pedig még ha csak a Breaking Badből is ismerős, akkor is kíváncsi vagyok rá.

In this hilarious, heartfelt memoir, the star of Mr. Show, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, and Nobody opens up about the highs and lows of showbiz, his legendary cult status as a comedy writer, and what it’s like to reinvent himself as a no-holds-barred action film ass-kicker at fifty.

Bob embraced a life in comedy after a chance meeting with Second City’s legendary Del Close, which eventually led to a job as a writer at SNL. As he weathered the beast that is live comedy, he stashed away the secrets of sketch writing–employing them in the immortal “Motivational Speaker” sketch for his friend Chris Farley, honing them on The Ben Stiller Show, and perfecting them on Mr. Show With Bob and David, which inspired an entire generation of comedy writers and stars.

Then his career met the hope-dashing machine that is Hollywood development. But when all hope was lost for the umpteenth time, Bob was more astonished than anyone to find himself on Breaking Bad. His embrace of this strange new world of dramatic acting led him to working with Steven Spielberg, Alexander Payne, and Greta Gerwig, until finally re-re-inventing himself as a bona-fide worldwide action star for reasons that even he does not fully grasp! Read this and do your own psychoanalysis–it’s fun!

Throughout Bob’s travels, his memoir preserves the voice he cultivated from years of comedy writing. Featuring humorous tangents, joyful interludes, never-before-seen photos, wild characters from his winding career, and his trademark upbeat but unflinching drive, Comedy Comedy Comedy Drama is a classic showbiz tale–and a moving story about what it’s like to risk everything you think you know to make a change.

Olivie Blake: The Atlas Six

A The Atlas Six nem kifejezetten szorosan sorolható a 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések közé, mert a Goodreads szerint 2020 januárjában jelent meg. Azonban mivel TikTokon most pörög nagyon, így gondolom emiat kerülhetett fel a mostani listára is, amiből én is válogattam. Ezt személy szerint nem bánom, örülök hogy ráakadtam.

The Alexandrian Society is a secret society of magical academicians, the best in the world. Their members are caretakers of lost knowledge from the greatest civilizations of antiquity. And those who earn a place among their number will secure a life of wealth, power, and prestige beyond their wildest dreams. Each decade, the world’s six most uniquely talented magicians are selected for initiation – and here are the chosen few…

Libby Rhodes and Nicolás Ferrer de Varona: inseparable enemies, cosmologists who can control matter with their minds.

Reina Mori: a naturalist who can speak the language of life itself.
Parisa Kamali: a mind reader whose powers of seduction are unmatched.
Tristan Caine: the son of a crime kingpin who can see the secrets of the universe.
Callum Nova: an insanely rich pretty boy who could bring about the end of the world. He need only ask.

When the candidates are recruited by the mysterious Atlas Blakely, they are told they must spend one year together to qualify for initiation. During this time, they will be permitted access to the Society’s archives and judged on their contributions to arcane areas of knowledge. Five, they are told, will be initiated. One will be eliminated. If they can prove themselves to be the best, they will survive. Most of them.

Andrea Yaryura Clark: On a Night of a Thousand Stars

Ha azt mondom, hogy nagyon szép a borítója, az nem gáz, ugye? Bár szerintem nem, mert enélkül elsiklottam volna a regény fölött, viszont így elolvasva a fülszöveget úgy érzem, hogy egy lehetséges kincsre bukkantam. Nem tartom nagyon valószínűnek, hogy mostanában magyarul megjelenik majd az On a Night of a Thousand Stars, szóval ezt a könyvet tervezem angolul olvasni valamikor.

In this moving, emotional narrative of love and resilience, a young couple confronts the start of Argentina’s Dirty War in the 1970s, and a daughter searches for truth twenty years later.

New York, 1998. Santiago Larrea, a wealthy Argentine diplomat, is holding court alongside his wife, Lila, and their daughter, Paloma, a college student and budding jewelry designer, at their annual summer polo match and soiree. All seems perfect in the Larreas’ world—until an unexpected party guest from Santiago’s university days shakes his usually unflappable demeanor. The woman’s cryptic comments spark Paloma’s curiosity about her father’s past, of which she knows little.

When the family travels to Buenos Aires for Santiago’s UN ambassadorial appointment, Paloma is determined to learn more about his life in the years leading up to the military dictatorship of 1976. With the help of a local university student, Franco Bonetti, an activist member of H.I.J.O.S.—a group whose members are the children of the desaparecidos, or the “disappeared,” men and women who were forcibly disappeared by the state during Argentina’s “Dirty War”—Paloma unleashes a chain of events that not only leads her to question her family and her identity, but also puts her life in danger.

In compelling fashion, On a Night of a Thousand Stars speaks to relationships, morality, and identity during a brutal period in Argentinian history, and the understanding—and redemption—people crave in the face of tragedy.

Francesca May: Wild and Wicked Things

Végül, de nem utolsó sorban a 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések sorában efölött a regény fölött is majdnem elsiklottam. És milyen jó, hogy nem tettem! Boszorkányok és 20. század eleje – előbbi témára mostanában eléggé rákattantam.

In the aftermath of World War I, a naive woman is swept into a glittering world filled with dark magic, romance, and murder in this lush and decadent debut.

On Crow Island, people whisper, real magic lurks just below the surface.

Neither real magic nor faux magic interests Annie Mason. Not after it stole her future. She’s only on the island to settle her late father’s estate and, hopefully, reconnect with her long-absent best friend, Beatrice, who fled their dreary lives for a more glamorous one.

Yet Crow Island is brimming with temptation, and the biggest one may be her enigmatic new neighbor.

Mysterious and alluring, Emmeline Delacroix is a figure shadowed by rumors of witchcraft. And when Annie witnesses a confrontation between Bea and Emmeline at one of the island’s extravagant parties, she is drawn into a glittering, haunted world. A world where the boundaries of wickedness are tested, and the cost of illicit magic might be death.

Újdonságfigyelő 📖

A 2022. márciusi könyvmegjelenések közül tehát ez az a 10 kötet, ami felkeltette a kíváncsiságom, azonban angolul nyilván ennél sokkal több kötet jelenik meg nem hogy havonta, hanem hetente. Mivel mostanában a magyar kiadók van, hogy villámgyorsan hozzák az újdonságokat, így úgy gondolom, hogy érdemes odafigyelni az angol nyelvű friss megjelenésekre is.
