Damit mir in der nächsten Woche nicht langweilig wird und ich auch die insgesamt bestimmt 30 Stunden in Autos und (hoffentlich) Zügen überstehe, habe ich mir gerade eine Batterie neuer Bücher auf meinen Reader geladen:

Who Fears Death von Nnedi Okorafor

In a far future, post-nuclear-holocaust Africa, genocide plagues one region. The aggressors, the Nuru, have decided to follow the Great Book and exterminate the Okeke. But when the only surviving member of a slain Okeke village is brutally raped, she manages to escape, wandering farther into the desert. She gives birth to a baby girl with hair and skin the color of sand and instinctively knows that her daughter is different. She names her daughter Onyesonwu, which means „Who Fears Death?“ in an ancient African tongue. Reared under the tutelage of a mysterious and traditional shaman, Onyesonwu discovers her magical destiny-to end the genocide of her people. The journey to fulfill her destiny will force her to grapple with nature, tradition, history, true love, the spiritual mysteries of her culture-and eventually death itself.

The Element von Ken Robinson

The Element is the point at which natural talent meets personal passion. When people arrive at the Element, they feel most themselves and most inspired and achieve at their highest levels. With a wry sense of humor, Ken Robinson looks at the conditions that enable us to find ourselves in the Element and those that stifle that possibility. Drawing on the stories of a wide range of people, including Paul McCartney, Matt Groening, Richard Branson, Arianna Huffington, and Bart Conner, he shows that age and occupation are no barrier and that this is the essential strategy for transform­ing education, business, and communities in the twenty-first century.

The Knife of Never Letting Go von Patrick Ness

This is an unflinching novel about the impossible choices of growing up, by an award-winning writer.Imagine you’re the only boy in a town of men. And you can hear everything they think. And they can hear everything you think. Imagine you don’t fit in with their plans…Todd Hewitt is just one month away from the birthday that will make him a man. But his town has been keeping secrets from him. Secrets that are going to force him to run…

Die Erbin der Welt von N.K Jemisin

Natürlich befolgt Yeine Darr den Befehl ihres Großvaters, sich unverzüglich aus der Provinz zu seinem Palast zu begeben. Schließlich ist er der Herrscher über die ganze Welt. Doch als er sie zu seiner dritten Erbin ernennt, befindet sie sich unvermutet inmitten tödlicher Palastintrigen. Ihre einzige Hoffnung auf Überleben ist ein Bündnis mit Nahadoth – dem zwar versklavten, aber immer noch ebenso mörderischen wie verführerischen Gott der Finsternis.
