Quentin Jacobsen has spent a lifetime loving the magnificently adventurous Margo Roth Spiegelman from afar. So when she cracks open a window and climbs back in the middle of the night—dressed like a ninja and summoning him for an ingenious campaign of revenge—he follows.

After their all-nighter ends, and a new day breaks, Q arrives at school to discover that Margo, always an enigma, has now become a mystery. But Q soon learns that there are clues--and they’re for him. Urged down a disconnected path, the closer he gets, the less Q sees the girl he thought he knew.

He is a Legend.
She is a Prodigy.
Who will be Champion?

June and Day have sacrificed so much for the people of the Republic—and each other—and now their country is on the brink of a new existence. June is back in the good graces of the Republic, working within the government’s elite circles as Princeps Elect while Day has been assigned a high level military position. But neither could have predicted the circumstances that will reunite them once again. Just when a peace treaty is imminent, a plague outbreak causes panic in the Colonies, and war threatens the Republic’s border cities. This new strain of plague is deadlier than ever, and June is the only one who knows the key to her country’s defense. But saving the lives of thousands will mean asking the one she loves to give up everything he has. With heart-pounding action and suspense, Marie Lu’s bestselling trilogy draws to a stunning conclusion.

For disgraced TV presenter Martin Sharp the answer's pretty simple: he has, in his own words, 'pissed his life away'. And on New Year's Eve he's going to end it all . . . but not, as it happens, alone. Because first single-mum Maureen, then eighteen-year-old Jess and lastly American rock-god JJ turn up and crash Martin's private party. They've stolen his idea - but brought their own reasons.

Yet it's hard to jump when you've got an audience queuing impatiently behind you. A few heated words and some slices of cold pizza later and these four strangers are suddenly allies. But is their unlikely friendship a good enough reason to carry on living?



Heute ist ein freudiger Tag, denn nach monatelangem Warten, kann ich euch endlich meine neuen Regale zeigen. Letzten November habe ich mich dazu entschlossen, mein Weihnachtsgeld für neue Möbel auszugeben und das habe ich dann auch getan.

Nun im Februar sind endlich alle neuen Regale aufgebaut und aufgehängt, sodass ich euch endlich das Ergebnis präsentieren darf :)

Cover Monday #5: The Strange And Beautiful Sorrows Of Ava Lavender

Guten Montag!

Ich sollte mich ja wirklich zusammenreißen. Schmeiß das soziale Leben aus dem Fenster, Bibi, und widme dich deinem Leben online! Außerdem: Vergiss Schlaf, das ist für Loser! :D

Ne, Spaß, aber letzte Woche habe ich den Cover Monday leider ausfallen lassen, weil ich total erledigt war. Dafür mache ich es heute mit einem wahren Pracht-Cover wieder gut! :)
