Books I'll be waiting for - 2k16 ver

Last year was a great bookish year and 2016 does even seem to be better! These are the books that are gonna have a place in my bookshelf:

This is where it ends (5th January) 
(synopsis by Goodreads)
10:00 a.m.
The principal of Opportunity, Alabama's high school finishes her speech, welcoming the entire student body to a new semester and encouraging them to excel and achieve.

10:02 a.m.
The students get up to leave the auditorium for their next class.

The auditorium doors won't open.

Someone starts shooting.

Told over the span of 54 harrowing minutes from four different perspectives, terror reigns as one student's calculated revenge turns into the ultimate game of survival.

Since I first saw this book I've been waiting to read it and enjoy it. Its synopsis reminded me of the movie "Elephant" which is basically about two boys who go nuts and decide to kill everybody in their highschool (follow me for more great reviews lmao). I'll be most likely getting it for my birthday, which is this month's 24th. 

 Cómeme si te atreves (14th January)
(synopsis by Goodreads)
¿Lo arriesgarías todo por un amor perdido?

Babia tiene diecisiete años, una guitarra, un gato que se llama Mousse de chocolate y unos cuantos kilos de más que el resto del mundo se empeña en recordarle. El verano toma un giro inesperado cuando Daniel Creek regresa a su vida, justo en el momento en el que ella acaba de aceptar ser la acompañante y casamentera de su prima Helena para ganar un dinero extra. Pese a las advertencias de su tía Gloria, Babia decide que solamente tendrá que pasar dos meses más aparentando y después no volverá a verles. Un inesperado giro de los acontecimientos hace que Babia, Helena y Daniel terminen trabajando en el mismo sitio durante todo el verano. Y esto hará que la amistad de Babia y Daniel cuando eran pequeños resurja y con ella todos los sentimientos que Babia trataba de esconder fingiendo que no le echaba de menos. ¿Es capaz un beso de despertar todos los recuerdos que viven en nuestros corazones?

Algo tiene este libro que en cuanto vi su sinopsis una voz dentro de mí me dijo que me iba a gustar mucho y debía hacerme con él. Puede ser, también, porque la trama parece desarrollarse en un ambiente de trabajo de verano, de lo cuál no he leído ningún libro hasta ahora y en mi entorno familiar ha sido siempre obligación pasarse el verano trabajando (a partir de la edad legal, claro está). Planeo comprarlo el mismo día en el que llega a todas las librerías. 

The Love That Split the World (26th January)
(synopsis by Goodreads)
Natalie Cleary must risk her future and leap blindly into a vast unknown for the chance to build a new world with the boy she loves. 

Natalie’s last summer in her small Kentucky hometown is off to a magical start... until she starts seeing the “wrong things.” They’re just momentary glimpses at first—her front door is red instead of its usual green, there’s a pre-school where the garden store should be. But then her whole town disappears for hours, fading away into rolling hills and grazing buffalo, and Nat knows something isn’t right.  

That’s when she gets a visit from the kind but mysterious apparition she calls “Grandmother,” who tells her: “You have three months to save him.” The next night, under the stadium lights of the high school football field, she meets a beautiful boy named Beau, and it’s as if time just stops and nothing exists. Nothing, except Natalie and Beau.

Emily Henry’s stunning debut novel is Friday Night Lights meets The Time Traveler’s Wife, and perfectly captures those bittersweet months after high school, when we dream not only of the future, but of all the roads and paths we’ve left untaken.

Do I really have to say why do I want to read this book? I mean, read this synopsis, look at this gorgeous cover. I think this should be one of my birthday presents, tbh.

Thanks for the Trouble (23rd February)
(synopsis by Goodreads)
Tommy Wallach, the New York Times bestselling author of the “stunning debut” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) We All Looked Up, delivers a brilliant new novel about a young man who overcomes a crippling loss and finds the courage to live after meeting an enigmatic girl.

“Was this story written about me?”
I shrugged. 
“Yes or no?”
I shrugged again, finally earning a little scowl, which somehow made the girl even more pretty.
“It’s very rude not to answer simple questions,” she said.
I gestured for my journal, but she still wouldn’t give it to me. So I took out my pen and wrote on my palm.
I can’t, I wrote. Then, in tiny letters below it: Now don’t you feel like a jerk?

Parker Santé hasn’t spoken a word in five years. While his classmates plan for bright futures, he skips school to hang out in hotels, killing time by watching the guests. But when he meets a silver-haired girl named Zelda Toth, a girl who claims to be quite a bit older than she looks, he’ll discover there just might be a few things left worth living for.

From the celebrated author of We All Looked Up comes a unique story of first and last loves.

After giving me one of my favourite books ever (We all looked up), Tommy Wallach comes back with this art piece which seems to be A-W-E-S-O-M-E. Fortunately, I won't have to wait much to get this book and I do really think I'll love it very much.

Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories (14th June)
(synopsis by Goodreads)
Maybe it's the long, lazy days, or maybe it's the heat making everyone a little bit crazy. Whatever the reason, summer is the perfect time for love to bloom. Summer Days & Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories, written by twelve bestselling young adult writers and edited by the international bestselling author Stephanie Perkins, will have you dreaming of sunset strolls by the lake. So set out your beach chair and grab your sunglasses. You have twelve reasons this summer to soak up the sun and fall in love. 

Featuring stories by Leigh Bardugo, Francesca Lia Block, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Brandy Colbert, Tim Federle, Lev Grossman, Nina LaCour, Stephanie Perkins, Veronica Roth, Jon Skovron, and Jennifer E. Smith.

I've been pretty obsessed with this book and My true love gave to me so that's why I got this last one for Christmas. I'm still reading it and I have to say it's boring. I'm really disappointed about it because I expected it to be awesome due to the amount of fantastic authors it has in it and because I love Christmas stories. I know I can't have a solid opinion of it yet since I haven't finished it, but I don't think it will be one of my favourite books. Despite of that, I expect the summer one to be awesome so I'll give it a chance before moving to Japan.

Aarie (sine die) /Magonia #2/

I read Magonia last summer and it was a slow reading but I ended up loving it and its characters so much. I can't talk very much about it because it will be a spoiler so if you haven't read Magonia yet, just do it before this beauty comes out. 

Do you know any of these books? Did I make you want to read one of them? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
