Az elmúlt időszakban igyekszem figyelemmel kísérni a külföldi megjelenéseket is, így március után íme a 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések angol nyelven, azaz az újdonságfigyelő rovat. A lista erősen szubjektív, azokat a regényeket válogattam össze, melyek engem is érdekelnek, segítségül pedig a Goodreads-t hívtam.

2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések

Olyan érzésem van, mintha májusban kevesebb könyv jelenne meg. Vagy csak nekem keltette fel kevesebb történet a figyelmem. A 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések ezúttal 6 regényt soroltat fel. Ezek közül néhányat tervezek fizikai példányban, angolul is megszerezni, persze ha kedvezőek lesznek a feltételek.

Emily Henry: Book Lovers

Emily Henry iszonyatosan népszerű nemzetközi szinten, itthon azonban mostoha módon csak a Strandkönyv jelent meg eddig. Május végén jelenik meg a People We Meet on Vacation magyarul Nyáron a párom címmel, amit nagyon várok. Ettől függetlenül a 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések közül erősen gondolkodom, hogy a Book Loverst beszerzem és elolvasom angolul.

Emily Henry: Book Lovers

An insightful, delightful new novel from the number-one New York Times bestselling author of Beach Read and People We Meet on Vacation.

One summer. Two rivals. A plot twist they didn’t see coming…. Nora Stephens’ life is books – she’s read them all – and she is not that type of heroine. Not the plucky one, not the laidback dream girl, and especially not the sweetheart. In fact, the only people Nora is a heroine for are her clients, for whom she lands enormous deals as a cutthroat literary agent, and her beloved little sister Libby.

Which is why she agrees to go to Sunshine Falls, North Carolina for the month of August when Libby begs her for a sisters’ trip away – with visions of a small-town transformation for Nora, who she’s convinced needs to become the heroine in her own story. But instead of picnics in meadows, or run-ins with a handsome country doctor or bulging-forearmed bartender, Nora keeps bumping into Charlie Lastra, a bookish brooding editor from back in the city. It would be a meet-cute if not for the fact that they’ve met many times and it’s never been cute.

If Nora knows she’s not an ideal heroine, Charlie knows he’s nobody’s hero, but as they are thrown together again and again – in a series of coincidences no editor worth their salt would allow – what they discover might just unravel the carefully crafted stories they’ve written about themselves.

Emma Straub: This Time Tomorrow

Emma Straub neve azért nem ismeretlen számomra, mert a Nem vagyunk már gyerekeket olvastam, és eléggé tetszett is, így mindenképpen szeretnék még olvasni a szerzőtől. Az időutazós téma pedig mostanában egyre inkább érdekel. Bízom benne, hogy magyarul meg fog jelenni a This Time Tomorrow.

Emma Straub: This Time Tomorrow - 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések | újdonságfigyelő

What if you could take a vacation to your past?

With her celebrated humor, insight, and heart, beloved New York Times bestseller Emma Straub offers her own twist on traditional time travel tropes, and a different kind of love story.

On the eve of her 40th birthday, Alice’s life isn’t terrible. She likes her job, even if it isn’t exactly the one she expected. She’s happy with her apartment, her romantic status, her independence, and she adores her lifelong best friend. But her father is ailing, and it feels to her as if something is missing. When she wakes up the next morning she finds herself back in 1996, reliving her 16th birthday. But it isn’t just her adolescent body that shocks her, or seeing her high school crush, it’s her dad: the vital, charming, 40-something version of her father with whom she is reunited. Now armed with a new perspective on her own life and his, some past events take on new meaning. Is there anything that she would change if she could?

E. Lockhart: Family of Liars

A We Were Liars, azaz A hazudósok reneszánszát éli mostanában, leginkább azért, mert TikTokon eszméletlenül népszerű a könyv – még több booktokos könyvről itt írtam. Szóval íme a Family of Liars, mely A hazudósok mondhatni előzménykötete. A hazudósokat tervezem majd újraolvasni, mert számomra annó egy könnyed, nyári olvasmányélmény volt.

E. Lockhart: Family of Liars - 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések | újdonságfigyelő

The prequel to We Were Liars takes readers back to the story of another summer, another generation, and the secrets that will haunt them for decades to come.

A windswept private island off the coast of Massachusetts.

A hungry ocean, churning with secrets and sorrow.

A fiery, addicted heiress. An irresistible, unpredictable boy.

A summer of unforgivable betrayal and terrible mistakes.

Welcome back to the Sinclair family.

They were always liars.

Lucinda Riley: The Murders at Fleat House

Lucinda Riley-t nagyon kedvelem, A hét nővér-sorozat pedig abszolút kedvenc nálam. A The Murders at Fleat House ugyan merőben más műfaj, mint a családregényei, azonban így is kíváncsian várom a magyar változatot.

Lucinda Riley: The Murders at Fleat House - 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések | újdonságfigyelő

The Murders at Fleat House is a suspenseful and utterly compelling crime novel from the multi-million copy global bestseller, Lucinda Riley.

The sudden death of a pupil in Fleat House at St Stephen’s – a small private boarding school in deepest Norfolk – is a shocking event that the headmaster is very keen to call a tragic accident.

But the local police cannot rule out foul play and the case prompts the return of high-flying Detective Inspector Jazmine ‘Jazz’ Hunter to the force. Jazz has her own private reasons for stepping away from her police career in London, but reluctantly agrees to front the investigation as a favour to her old boss.

Reunited with her loyal sergeant Alastair Miles, she enters the closed world of the school, and as Jazz begins to probe the circumstances surrounding Charlie Cavendish’s tragic death, events are soon to take another troubling turn.

Charlie is exposed as an arrogant bully, and those around him had both motive and opportunity to switch the drugs he took daily to control his epilepsy.

As staff at the school close ranks, the disappearance of young pupil Rory Millar and the death of an elderly Classics master provide Jazz with important leads, but are destined to complicate the investigation further. As snow covers the landscape and another suspect goes missing, Jazz must also confront her personal demons . . .

Then, a particularly grim discovery at the school makes this the most challenging murder investigation of her career. Because Fleat House hides secrets darker than even Jazz could ever have imagined . . .

Casey McQuiston: I Kissed Shara Wheeler

Ugyan Casey McQuistontól nem olvastam még – az ő nevéhez köthető a Red, White & Royal Blue: Vörös, fehér és királykék –, azonban nayon régóta szemezek vele. Az I Kissed Shara Wheeler pedig remek választás lenne akár angolul is.

Casey McQuiston: I Kissed Shara Wheeler - 2022. májusi könyvmegjelenések | újdonságfigyelő

From the New York Times bestselling author of One Last Stop and Red, White & Royal Blue comes a debut YA romantic comedy about chasing down what you want, only to find what you need…

Chloe Green is so close to winning. After her moms moved her from SoCal to Alabama for high school, she’s spent the past four years dodging gossipy classmates and a puritanical administration at Willowgrove Christian Academy. The thing that’s kept her going: winning valedictorian. Her only rival: prom queen Shara Wheeler, the principal’s perfect progeny.

But a month before graduation, Shara kisses Chloe and vanishes.

On a furious hunt for answers, Chloe discovers she’s not the only one Shara kissed. There’s also Smith, Shara’s longtime quarterback sweetheart, and Rory, Shara’s bad boy neighbor with a crush. The three have nothing in common except Shara and the annoyingly cryptic notes she left behind, but together they must untangle Shara’s trail of clues and find her. It’ll be worth it, if Chloe can drag Shara back before graduation to beat her fair-and-square.

Thrown into an unlikely alliance, chasing a ghost through parties, break-ins, puzzles, and secrets revealed on monogrammed stationery, Chloe starts to suspect there might be more to this small town than she thought. And maybe—probably not, but maybe—more to Shara, too.

Fierce, funny, and frank, Casey McQuiston’s I Kissed Shara Wheeler is about breaking the rules, getting messy, and finding love in unexpected places.

Taylor Jenkins Reid: Malibu Rising (újrakiadás)

Ó, a csodás Taylor Jenkins Reid! A Malibu Rising nem új megjelenés, hanem újrakiadás, ettől függetlenül a szerzőtől mindenképp tervben van a többi művének olvasása – akár eredeti nyelven is. Az Evelyn hét férje magyar változata nem volt az igazi, illetve Jenkins Read is hiába szupernépszerű nemzetközileg, magyarul csak két könyve jelent meg eddig.

Taylor Jenkins Reid: Malibu Rising

Four famous siblings throw an epic party to celebrate the end of the summer. But over the course of twenty-four hours, their lives will change forever.

Malibu: August, 1983. It’s the day of Nina Riva’s annual end-of-summer party, and anticipation is at a fever pitch. Everyone wants to be around the famous Rivas: Nina, the talented surfer and supermodel; brothers Jay and Hud, one a championship surfer, the other a renowned photographer; and their adored baby sister, Kit. Together, the siblings are a source of fascination in Malibu and the world over—especially as the offspring of the legendary singer, Mick Riva.

By midnight the party will be completely out of control. By morning, the Riva mansion will have gone up in flames. But before that first spark in the early hours before dawn, the alcohol will flow, the music will play, and the loves and secrets that shaped this family’s generations will all come bubbling to the surface.

Malibu Rising is a story about one unforgettable night in the life of a family: the night they each have to choose what they will keep from the people who made them . . . and what they will leave behind.
