10 Buchtitel in einem Gedicht | Top Ten Thursday №92

Wow, das war eine wirklich spaßige Herausforderung. Da ich ausschließlich englische Buchtitel rausgesucht habe, habe ich mich auch an einem englischen Gedicht probiert. Ich glaube, ich saß die letzten 3 Wochen an dem Werk und hoffe es gefällt dir. Solltest du es nicht verstehen, dann kannst du natürlich Google Translate benutzen. Ich habe es selbst probiert und es fängt ganz gut die Stimmung ein.

Ich bin gespannt, welche tollen poetischen Adern ich heute bei euch kennenlernen werde.

Hey, Over here.
No, look up.
Yeah, I’m the one they talk about.

The headmaster’s prized possession, locked away in the bell tower of Notre-Dame Parochial College. To most of the students I was just a myth. An urban legend. The girl who rings the bells up in the tower, the one who talks to gargoyles.
Frollo’s secret.

Then they showed up, those heathens. Outcasts, just like me. But these men aren’t just dangerous, they’re heartless. They won’t abide or bend to the rules of this deranged school and the secrets it keeps from the world.
Now that they’ve found me, they may never let me go. And maybe I wouldn’t want them to…

Heartless Heathens is a Dark Romance Reverse Harem, loosely inspired from major points of Victor Hugo's Notre Dame de Paris. This is NOT a retelling, it is NOT a fractured fairy tale. All characters are adults. This story does not involve any characters of Romany descent.

This book is dark in nature, please see author's note for trigger warnings. Not intended for readers under 18.

Divided by their order. United by their vengeance.

Iraya has spent her life in a cell, but every day brings her closer to freedom - and vengeance.

Jazmyne is the Queen’s daughter, but unlike her sister before her, she has no intention of dying to strengthen her mother’s power.

Sworn enemies, these two witches enter a precarious alliance to take down a mutual threat. But power is intoxicating, revenge is a bloody pursuit, and nothing is certain - except the lengths they will go to win this game.

This Jamaican-inspired fantasy debut about two enemy witches who must enter into a deadly alliance to take down a common enemy has the twisted cat-and-mouse of Killing Eve with the richly imagined fantasy world of Furyborn and Ember in the Ashes.

From international bestselling author, Emily McIntire, comes a dark and delicious fractured fairy tale reimagining of The Wizard of Oz. A woman can be great, and terrible too.

Evelina Westerly has always been the bad guy. As the brains, brawn, and botanist behind her family's drug empire, she's her father's ruthless secret weapon. With her days divided between perfecting her greenhouse, seeking revenge for her sister's murder, and putting a gun to the head of anyone in her way, Evelina doesn't have time for anything else. Especially not for love. After a one-night stand with a gorgeous man at a nightclub, she's sated her urges and is back to her criminal ways. That is, until that same man shows up as the new Westerly lackey...under a totally different name. But Nicholas Woodsworth's real secret is much more dangerous than an alias. He's an undercover DEA agent, and he's hell-bent on destroying the drug trade that devastated his family. When he realizes the youngest daughter of the Westerly empire is the same woman he's been fantasizing about since that night at the club, attraction wars violently with disgust. Evelina embodies everything he's against, and he's been sent here to be her downfall. Yet the more they learn about the darkness in each other's hearts, the more alike they seem, and when hatred turns to something more, Nicholas will have to decide whether he can love a wretched woman, even if it means bringing both of their lives to ruin.

The adult debut of #1 New York Times bestselling author Kerri Maniscalco, Throne of the Fallen is a seductive new standalone novel set within her fan-favorite Kingdom of the Wicked world, perfect for readers of fantasy, romance, and mystery alike.

Sinner. Villain. Ruthless.

These are wicked names the Prince of Envy welcomes. They remind him what he isn’t: a saint. And when a cryptic note arrives, signaling the beginning of a deadly game, he knows he’ll be called much worse before it ends. Riddles, hexed objects, anonymous players, nothing will stand in his way. With a powerful artifact and his own future at stake, Envy is determined to win, though none of his meticulous plans prepare him for her, the frustrating artist who ignites his sin—and passion—like no other…

Talented. Darling. Liar.

The trouble with scoundrels and blackguards is that they haven’t a modicum of honor, a fact Miss Camilla Antonius learns after one desperate mistake allows notorious rake—and satire sheet legend—Lord Phillip Vexley to blackmail her. And now it seems Vexley isn’t the only scoundrel interested in securing her unique talents as a painter. To avoid Vexley’s clutches and a ruinous scandal, Camilla is forced to enter a devil’s bargain with Waverly Green’s newest arrival, enigmatic Lord Ashford ‘Syn’ Synton, little expecting his game will awaken her true nature . . .

Together, Envy and Camilla must embark on a perilous journey through the Shifting Isles—from glittering demon courts to the sultry vampire realm, and encounters with exiled Fae—while trying to avoid the most dangerous trap of all: falling in love.

Joss Brevyn is the last heir in a long line of executioners. Although a woman, the same rules still apply: kill the condemned within three tries, or be tortured and killed. Joss has yet to miss her mark, and even though she spends her free time as a healer, the town views her only as a deathsman. So when she and her assistant, Henrik, stumble upon a beaten man on the way home, both are hesitant to reveal who they really are. The only problem is, so is he.

Aric Kayden has seen better days. After failing to assassinate his last victim, he's left bleeding on the side of the road until he's found and taken in by Joss and Henrik, two seemingly innocent locals. Healing from his wounds, Aric is still haunted by the target he didn't kill, especially by those who paid him. Despite the undeniable attraction between him and Joss, Aric can't bring himself to tell the truth: that the masked figures who hired him knows where he is, and his original target is the mysterious prisoner who was recently sentenced to death. Forced to uphold the deal, Aric's only job now is to make sure the execution goes as planned and eliminate whoever intervenes.

Bound by their duties, both Joss and Aric assume this next kill will be easy. But then one of them has a change of heart, sparking a chain reaction that could leave one—or both—of them dead.

In the city of Ombrazia, saints and their disciples rule with terrifying and unjust power, playing favorites while the unfavored struggle to survive.

After her father’s murder at the hands of the Ombrazian military, Rossana Lacertosa is willing to do whatever it takes to dismantle the corrupt system—tapping into her powers as a disciple of Patience, joining the rebellion, and facing the boy who broke her heart. As the youngest captain in the history of Palazzo security, Damian Venturi is expected to be ruthless and strong, and to serve the saints with unquestioning devotion. But three years spent fighting in a never-ending war have left him with deeper scars than he wants to admit… and a fear of confronting the girl he left behind.

Now a murderer stalks Ombrazia’s citizens. As the body count climbs, the Palazzo is all too happy to look the other way—that is, until a disciple becomes the newest victim. With every lead turning into a dead end, Damian and Roz must team up to find the killer, even if it means digging up buried emotions. As they dive into the underbelly of Ombrazia, the pair will discover something more sinister—and far less holy. With darkness closing in and time running out, will they be able to save the city from an evil so powerful that it threatens to destroy everything in its path?

THE CHOSEN ONE

Barrington University is home of the Lords, a secret society that requires their blood in payment. They are above all—the most powerful men in the world. They devote their lives to violence in exchange for power. And during their senior year, they are offered a chosen one.

I VOW. YOU VOW. WE VOW.

People think growing up with money is freeing, but I promise you, it’s not. My entire life has been planned out for me. I never got the chance to do what I wanted until Ryat Alexander Archer came along and gave me an option for a better life. He offered me what no one else ever had—freedom.

I chose to be his. He made me believe that anyway, but it was just another lie. A way that the Lords manipulate you into doing what they want.

After being sucked into the dark, twisted world of the Lords, I embraced my new role and allowed Ryat to parade me around like the trophy I was to him. But like all things, what started out as a game soon became a fight for survival. And the only way out was death.

The first book in an action-packed, poignant duology inspired by Nigerian mythology.

Dèmi just wants to survive: to avoid the suspicion of the nonmagical Ajes who occupy her ancestral homeland of Ife; to escape the King’s brutal genocide of her people – the darker skinned, magic wielding Oluso; and to live peacefully with her secretive mother while learning to control the terrifying blood magic that is her birthright.

But when Dèmi’s misplaced trust costs her mother’s life, survival gives way to vengeance. She bides her time until the devious Lord Ekwensi grants her the perfect opportunity – kidnap the Aje prince, Jonas, and bargain with his life to save the remaining Oluso. With the help of her reckless childhood friend Colin, Dèmi succeeds, but discovers that she and Jonas share more than deadly secrets; every moment tangles them further into a forbidden, unmistakable attraction, much to Colin’s – and Dèmi’s – distress.

The kidnapping is now a joint mission: to return to the king, help get Lord Ekwensi on the council, and bolster the voice of the Oluso in a system designed to silence them. But the way is dangerous, Dèmi’s magic is growing yet uncertain, and it’s not clear if she can trust the two men at her side.

A tale of rebellion and redemption, race and class, love and betrayal, FORGED BY BLOOD is epic fantasy at its finest, from an enthusiastic, emerging voice.

Hallo RoXXie,
mit diesem tollen Gedicht auf englisch hast Du wohl den Vogel abgeschossen. Es war schon schwer genug, überhaupt ein Gedicht zu verfassen, das Buchtitel enthält. Und dann noch auf englisch. Und dann noch so ein tolles Gedicht. Ganz großes Kompliment von mir!
Liebe Grüße
Gabi

Hallo RoXXie^^

Wow, einfach nur wow. Nicht nur, dass es ein englisches Gedicht ist, sondern auch noch eins, das schwer beeindruckt. Ich konnte mir richtig gut vorstellen, wie ich in einer Taverne sitze und eine Frau mit rauchiger Stimme und Umhang mir davon erzählt… Oder dass ich das an einem Lagerfeuer höre. Richtig cool!

Die Buchtitel selbst kenne ich leider nicht^^°

Liebe Grüße,
Kira

Hallo RoXXie,
Respekt, dass du ein Gedicht auf Englisch geschrieben hast. Ich hatte ja schon meine Probleme, eins auf Deutsch zu schreiben. 🙂
Mir gefällt dein Gedicht sehr gut. Du hast die Buchtitel schön untergebracht.
Von den vorgestellten Büchern habe ich keins gelesen. Ich lese aber auch hauptsächlich auf Deutsch.
Das Buch von Jay Kristoff, oder besser gesagt, Teil 1 der Reihe, habe ich mal einer Freundin zum Geburtstag geschenkt. Von daher kenne ich es.
Liebe Grüße
Tinette

Guten Morgen RoXXie 🙂

Wow, auf englisch. Das wäre für mich die ultimative Herausforderung geworden und ich wäre vermutlich krachend gescheitert^^
Dein Gedicht ist wirklich schön und sehr kreativ! Von den Büchern sind mir einige durch die deutsche Übersetzung bekannt, hab aber momentan nur das Buch von Jay Kristoff auf dem Schirm.

Lieben Gruß
Andrea

Schönen guten Morgen!

Wow, auf englisch auch noch! Das ist ja sehr cool! Von den Büchern hab ich keins gelesen, aber Nevernight rückt langsam in greifbare Nähe. Wenn die Nicholas Flamel Reihe durch ist, werde ich damit anfangen, endlich!

Dein Gedicht hab ich mir natürlich erst mal auf englisch durchgelesen. Und ich hab auch das meiste verstanden *lach* Zumindest kam die Atmosphäre rüber von düsteren, magischen Ereignissen, die in diesen rätselhaften Geschichten stecken.
Und mit dem Übersetzer hab ich es dann nochmal „richtig“ erfassen können. Manche Wörter sind mir einfach noch fremd und grade in Gedichtform dann etwas schwieriger zu interpretieren. In Büchern erkenne ich ja den Sinn oft einfach aus dem Kontext heraus, das war hier jetzt nicht ganz so einfach.

Aber ein wirklich super gelungenes Gedicht! Ich hab übrigens auch die ganzen letzten Wochen genutzt! Das ging bei mir auch nicht in einem Rutsch sondern Stück für Stück 😀

Liebste Grüße, Aleshanee

Guten Morgen RoXXie, leider kenne ich wieder keines der Bücher aber das Cover von M.K. Lobb ist toll, das habe ich nachgeschaut. Es gibt das Buch auch auf deutsch aber die Liebesgeschichte schreckt mich dann doch ab. Ich finde es sagenhaft, wie toll ihr alle gedichtet habt. Ich habe leider versagt. Aber vielleicht gefällt euch meine Alternative. Liebe Grüße Petra
