Paper Princess – Erin Watt
From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.
These Royals will ruin you…
Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone. 
Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.
Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.
He might be right.
Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees. 

Fly on the wall – E. Lockhart
At the Manhattan School for Art and Music, where everyone is “different” and everyone is “special,” Gretchen Yee feels ordinary. She’s the kind of girl who sits alone at lunch, drawing pictures of Spider-Man, so she won’t have to talk to anyone; who has a crush on Titus but won’t do anything about it; who has no one to hang out with when her best (and only real) friend Katya is busy.
One day, Gretchen wishes that she could be a fly on the wall in the boys’ locker room–just to learn more about guys. What are they really like? What do they really talk about? Are they really cretins most of the time?
Fly on the Wall is the story of how that wish comes true.

999 vragen aan jezelf
Wat is er leuker dan vragen over jezelf beantwoorden? Dat dachten wij ook: niets! Daarom is er nu dit boek waarin iedereen zijn of haar ei kwijt kan, 999 eieren om precies te zijn.
We vragen je het hemd van het lijf over alles en iedereen in je leven, van je geboorte tot nu en over de toekomst. Er zijn open vragen, meerkeuzevragen, ja/nee-vragen, tweekeuzevragen, ‘drie dingen-vragen’, 10-punts schalen … we maken er een topsport van. En als je dan eenmaal klaar bent, heb je een fantastisch nalatenschap voor latere generaties en een compendium dat je kunt uitreiken aan mensen die je in jouw ogen nog niet goed genoeg kennen.

Everything, Everything – Nicola Yoon
My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.
But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.
Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
 

Before I fall – Lauren Oliver
With this stunning debut novel, New York Times bestselling author Lauren Oliver emerged as one of today’s foremost authors of young adult fiction. Like Jay Asher’s Thirteen Reasons Why and Gayle Forman’s If I Stay, Before I Fall raises thought-provoking questions about love, death, and how one person’s life can affect so many others.
For popular high school senior Samantha Kingston, February 12—”Cupid Day”—should be one big party, a day of valentines and roses and the privileges that come with being at the top of the social pyramid. And it is…until she dies in a terrible accident that night.
However, she still wakes up the next morning. In fact, Sam lives the last day of her life seven times, until she realizes that by making even the slightest changes, she may hold more power than she ever imagined.
Named to numerous state reading lists, this novel was also recognized as a Best Book of the Year by Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, The Daily Beast, NPR, and Publishers Weekly. It has been optioned for film by Fox 2000 Pictures.

Eleanor & Park – Rainbow Rowell
Two misfits.
One extraordinary love.
Eleanor… Red hair, wrong clothes. Standing behind him until he turns his head. Lying beside him until he wakes up. Making everyone else seem drabber and flatter and never good enough…Eleanor.
Park… He knows she’ll love a song before he plays it for her. He laughs at her jokes before she ever gets to the punch line. There’s a place on his chest, just below his throat, that makes her want to keep promises…Park.
Set over the course of one school year, this is the story of two star-crossed sixteen-year-olds—smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try.

Iene Miene Mutte – Helen Grace
Het meisje was amper nog in leven toen ze het bos uit kwam lopen. Het verhaal van haar ontvoering was donkerder dan de meest verschrikkelijke nachtmerrie. Maar alles wat ze zei was waar. Elk gruwelijk detail. Een aantal dagen later wordt een tweede in shock verkerend slachtoffer gevonden en ontstaat er een patroon. In tweetallen worden mensen ontvoerd, vastgehouden en uitgehongerd. Vervolgens krijgen ze een duivels dilemma voorgelegd: doden of gedood worden.
Inspecteur Helen Grace en haar team weten dat ze jacht maken op een ingenieuze psychopaat die zijn slachtoffers gebroken en vol schuldgevoel achterlaat. Niet alleen dienen ze als zijn visitekaartje, ze zijn ook de moordenaars. De slachtoffers lijken lukraak gekozen, de plaats van het misdrijf zorgvuldig uitgekiend. Iets moet alle slachtoffers met elkaar verbinden…

 

Ik ben erg benieuwd! Ik vind het heerlijk om verrast te worden!
