FrühjahrsputzBingo 2024

Es ist wieder soweit, das FrühjahrsputzBingo steht an und damit werden die BuchBingo-Runden für 2024 eingeläutet.
Bei meiner Teilnahme an den letzten Bingos habe ich eher versagt, als etwas zu schaffen. Deshalb hab ich mir zu diesem Bingo einfach neun (9) Bücher ausgesucht, die auch auf meiner 24für2024 Challengeliste zu finden sind.

Damit schlage ich gleich 2, oder eigentlich sogar 3, Fliegen mit einer Klappe. Erst einmal ist die Wahrscheinlichkeit höher, dass ich die Bücher auf meiner BingoKarte auch lese, denn alle Bücher meiner 24für2024 Liste sind jene, die ich auch wirklich in diesem Jahr lesen möchte. Und außerdem hilft mir dies dann auch beim Abbau meines SuB, was auch gut als Frühjahrsputz durchgehen kann.

Ihr seht, ich hab mir Gedanken gemacht. 😁 Jetzt müssen wir nur noch warten, dass wir loslesen können.

Dies ist nun also meine BingoKarte. Normalerweise streiche ich die gelesenen Bücher immer ab, dieses Mal möchte ich die Karte nach und nach aufdecken. Hierbei ist es aber nicht so, dass ich die Cover noch geheim halten will, deshalb hab ich es nur mit einer leichten Nebelwolke verdeckt. Zudem stell‘ ich euch die Bücher jetzt auch noch einzeln vor. 😊
Und wie ihr sehen könnt, habe ich dieses Mal nur ein deutschsprachiges Buch dabei, aber auf Demons freue ich mich trotzdem.

Bryce Quinlan never expected to see a world other than Midgard, but now that she has, all she wants is to get back. Everything she loves is in Midgard: her family, her friends, her mate. Stranded in a strange new world, she’s going to need all her wits about her to get home again. And that’s no easy feat when she has no idea who to trust.

Hunt Athalar has found himself in some deep holes in his life, but this one might be the deepest of all. After a few brief months with everything he ever wanted, he’s in the Asteri’s dungeons again, stripped of his freedom and without a clue as to Bryce’s fate. He’s desperate to help her, but until he can escape the Asteri’s leash, his hands are quite literally tied.

In this sexy, breathtaking sequel to the #1 bestsellers House of Earth and Blood and House of Sky and Breath, Sarah J. Maas’s Crescent City series reaches new heights as Bryce and Hunt’s world is brought to the brink of collapse—with its future resting on their shoulders.

Persephone is the Goddess of Spring by title only. The truth is, since she was a little girl, flowers have shriveled at her touch. After moving to New Athens, she hopes to lead an unassuming life disguised as a mortal journalist.

Hades, God of the Dead, has built a gambling empire in the mortal world and his favorite bets are rumored to be impossible.

After a chance encounter with Hades, Persephone finds herself in a contract with the God of the Dead and the terms are impossible: Persephone must create life in the Underworld or lose her freedom forever.

The bet does more than expose Persephone’s failure as a goddess, however. As she struggles to sow the seeds of her freedom, love for the God of the Dead grows—and it’s forbidden.

The fae abandoned this world to us. And the ones with power rule.

Gold.

Gold floors, gold walls, gold furniture, gold clothes. In Highbell, in the castle built into the frozen mountains, everything is made of gold.

Even me.

King Midas rescued me. Dug me out of the slums and placed me on a pedestal. I’m called his precious. His favored. I’m the woman he Gold-Touched to show everyone that I belong to him. To show how powerful he is. He gave me protection, and I gave him my heart. And even though I don’t leave the confines of the palace, I’m safe.

Until war comes to the kingdom and a deal is struck.

Suddenly, my trust is broken. My love is challenged. And I realize that everything I thought I knew about Midas might be wrong.

Because these bars I’m kept in, no matter how gilded, are still just a cage. But the monsters on the other side might make me wish I’d never left.

The myth of King Midas reimagined. This compelling adult fantasy series is as addictive as it is unexpected. With romance, intrigue, and danger, the gilded world of Orea will grip you from the very first page.

Please Note: This book contains explicit content and darker elements, including mature language, violence, and rape. It is not intended for anyone under 18 years of age. This is book one in a series.

A forbidden obsession
Unyielding family allegiance
Three deadly challenges

THE HUMAN.
When a trip into the forest to collect a rare mushroom goes horribly wrong, I find myself falling through a fairy portal and straight into the arms of the Unseelie Fae prince. The dangerously unhinged and handsome Unseelie Fae prince.
What could be more horrible than that? He thinks I'm an assassin sent by the humans to kill him, not a biologist.
Determined to kill me first, and rid himself of the human he has unwillingly grown obsessed with, yet also needing to entertain his people, the villain challenges me to three deadly trials.
If I survive, I gain my freedom. But if not...
THE FAE.
I've never felt anything but hate and loathing until my eyes found hers--the vile human assassin's. She is a parasite that has mercilessly latched onto my mind and won't let me free.
My hand itches to be ungloved and feel her smooth skin, even though I would never. The Unseelie Fae royals would rather burn than touch a repulsive human.
I fear that if I do not destroy the girl soon, she may be the only thing that's capable of truly destroying me.

At ten-years-old, the Heir of Jasad flees a massacre that takes her entire family.

At fifteen, she buries her first body.

At twenty, the clock is ticking on Sylvia's third attempt at a home. Nizahl's armies have laid waste to Jasad and banned magic across the four remaining kingdoms. Fortunately, Sylvia's magic is as good at playing dead as she is.

When the Nizahl Heir tracks a group of Jasadis to Sylvia’s village, the quiet life she's crafted unravels. Calculating and cold, Arin's tactical brilliance is surpassed only by his hatred for magic. After a mistake exposes Sylvia’s magic to Arin, he offers her an escape: compete as Nizahl’s Champion in the Alcalah tournament and win immunity from persecution. In exchange, Arin will use her as bait to draw out the Jasadis he’s hunting.

To win the deadly Alcalah, Sylvia must work with Arin to free her trapped magic, all while staying a step ahead of his efforts to uncover her identity. As the two grow closer, Sylvia is thrust into the world of cunning royals and double-dealing politics. The Jasadi groups escalate the fight to make Sylvia the face of their movement, and Sylvia realizes winning her freedom as Nizahl’s Champion means destroying any chance of reuniting Jasad under her banner.

The scorched kingdom is rising again, and Sylvia will have to choose between the life she's earned, and the one she left behind.

Dies sind also meine neun Buchbbestreiter für diese Mini-Challenge beim diesjährigen FrühjahrsputzBingo. Ich bin gespannt, was ich schaffe und welche Bücher mir am besten gefallen werden.
Da fällt mir ein, mit all diesen Büchern kann ich auch bei all den anderen Challenges, bei denen ich dieses Jahr teilnehme noch Punkte sammeln, aber ganz besonders bei der Serial-Killer Challenge.

Ich wünsche allen Teilnehmenden viel Vergnügen mit ihren ausgewählten Werken und natürlich viel Erfolg.
