Ikke alle må ha barn

Hvorfor skal alle mene noe om andres valg om å få barn eller ikke?

Ned i postkassen min - vareulver, vampyrer og feer.

Utrolig mye ungdomslitteratur som finner veien ned i min postkasse om dagen(det eneste unntaket her er vel kanskje den første boken her).

Denne boken kom jeg litt tilfeldigvis over etter å ha twittret så vidt med forfatteren i forbindelse med en bok han skal gi ut i 2010(den har ingredienser som f.eks. en spådom, en norsk viking prins og varulver - klart jeg ble interessert ;) ). Jeg måtte selvsagt lese litt om forfatteren og dette er hans første bok, den er nok er milevis fra den som skal utgis til neste år. Har lest et par anmeldelser av boken og de har vært positive, så jeg gleder meg til å se om denne boken også får meg til å " laugh out loud many times".

This hilarious account of the plight of the single male follows Harry as he recounts his ambition since the age of 10 of finding the right girl. But 43 women and 20 years later, he is not nearer to his goal. Then Harry and his roommate, Gerrard, meet Alice, who is the only woman either man can agree upon as the perfect woman for them.

Dru Anderson has what her grandmother called “the touch.” (Comes in handy when you’re traveling from town to town with your dad, hunting ghosts, suckers, wulfen, and the occasional zombie.) Then her dad turns up dead—but still walking—and Dru knows she’s next. Even worse, she’s got two guys hungry for her affections, and they’re not about to let the fiercely independent Dru go it alone. Will Dru discover just how special she really is before coming face-to-fang with whatever—or whoever— is hunting her?

Forget everything you think you know about faeries. . . .
Creatures full of magic and whimsy?
Not in the Oakenwyld. Not anymore.
Deep inside the great Oak lies a dying faery realm, bursting with secrets instead of magic. Long ago the faeries mysteriously lost their magic. Robbed of their powers, they have become selfish and dull-witted. Now their numbers are dwindling and their very survival is at stake.
Only one young faery—Knife—is determined to find out where her people's magic has gone and try to get it back. Unlike her sisters, Knife is fierce and independent. She's not afraid of anything—not the vicious crows, the strict Faery Queen, or the fascinating humans living nearby. But when Knife disobeys the Faery Queen and befriends a human named Paul, her quest becomes more dangerous than she realizes. Can Knife trust Paul to help, or has she brought the faeries even closer to the brink of destruction?

After her mother’s death crossing the border from Pakistan to India during Partition, baby Pinky was taken in by her grandmother, Maji, the matriarch of the powerful Mittal family. Now thirteen years old, Pinky lives with her grandmother and her uncle’s family in a bungalow on the Malabar Heights in Bombay. While she has never really been accepted by her uncle’s family, she has always had Maji’s love.

One day, as monsoons engulf the city, Pinky opens a mysteriously bolted door, unleashing the ghosts of an infant who drowned shortly before Pinky’s arrival and of the nursemaid who cared for the child. Three generations of the Mittal family must struggle to come to terms with their secrets amidst hidden shame, forbidden love, and a call for absolute sacrifice.

Mercy Thompson's life is not exactly normal. Her next-door neighbor is a werewolf. Her former boss is a gremlin. And she's fixing a VW bus for a vampire. But then, Mercy isn't exactly normal herself.

Now Alisa is living in the 21st Century, ready to take on an ancient and powerful enemy. She will do whatever it takes to protect herself and her secret, even if it means destroying the people she loves.

For Alisa, human weakness must be battled against. The last vampire, will not die ...

Denne utgaven av boken inneholder både første og andre bok i serien om The Last Vampire(som tilsammen består av seks bøker)

Bøker jeg har lånt fra min kjære søster(dere som har fulgt meg en stund husker kanskje at jeg skrev en post om disse bøkene i sommer da jeg kjøpte de til henne. Gaven har nok falt i smak, for hun ringte til meg for å fortelle at hun måtte bestille seg bok nummer tre):

When fifteen-year-old Clary Fray heads out to the Pandemonium Club in New York City, she hardly expects to witness a murder — much less a murder committed by three teenagers covered with strange tattoos and brandishing bizarre weapons. Then the body disappears into thin air. It's hard to call the police when the murderers are invisible to everyone else and when there is nothing — not even a smear of blood — to show that a boy has died. Or was he a boy?

This is Clary's first meeting with the Shadowhunters, warriors dedicated to ridding the earth of demons. It's also her first encounter with Jace, a Shadowhunter who looks a little like an angel and acts a lot like a jerk. Within twenty-four hours Clary is pulled into Jace's world with a vengeance, when her mother disappears and Clary herself is attacked by a demon. But why would demons be interested in ordinary mundanes like Clary and her mother? And how did Clary suddenly get the Sight? The Shadowhunters would like to know. . . .

Jeg har ikke lagt inn noen bokomtale av City of Ashes rett og slett fordi jeg ikke vil lese noen omtale av den boken. Jeg er redd for at en bokomtale vil avsløre noe av innholdet fra den første boken.

Jeg har også rukket å låne bøker på biblioteket, skal se om jeg ikke får lagt inn en post med disse bøkene i morgen.
