Englisch Virus greift um + viele neue YA greek mythology

Ich lese ja ab und an auch englisch sprachige Bücher (weil es die ja leider hier in Deutschland nicht gibt -.-) und irgendwie scheint es seit ein paar Tagen auch in der Blogger Welt normal zu werden, mehr englische Bücher zu kaufen.
Naja und ich stöberte eben und die Tage davor brav auf goodreads rum und schaute nach YA Greek Mythology Bücher und wurde sowas von fündig. Ich möchte euch diese Schätze unbedingt zeigen.

Sehen die nicht fabelhaft aus? Hach, ich find' es ja so schade das die Deutschen meistens die Cover nicht übernehmen. Okay, nicht alle Übernahmen verhunzen sie aber das Original ist doch meist sehr viel hübscher *_*
Und diese Bücher habe ich mir als gekauft.... Ja, es sind wieder neue Serien -.- Medusa und For the love of Hades sind Band 1 und 2 die man soweit ich weiß unabhängig voneinander lesen kann. Die unteren 3 sind jeweils Band 1 ihrer Serie. Ich kann es kaum erwarten wenn die ankommen. Die sehen bestimmt toll aus und wie bei allen englischen Büchern lassen die sich bestimmt toll anfassen beim lesen xDDD

Bis auf the Mephisto covenant hat alles was mit griechischer Mythologie zu tun und in zweien geht’s um unsere liebe Medusa. Von der hört man ja auch nur "Gutes''. Ich bin ja mal gespannt ;)

Loves of Olympus 01: Medusa, A Love Story by Sasha Summers

It's said love can change a person. Medusa wasn't always a monster...
Medusa is ruled by duty, to her Titan father and the Goddess Athena. She's no room for the tenderness her warrior guard, Ariston, stirs. When Olympus frees her from service, her heart leads her into the arms of the guard she loves... and curses her as the creature with serpent locks.
Ariston goes to war with a full heart... and dreadful foreboding. He learns too late of the danger Medusa faces, alone, and a Persian blade sends him into the Underworld. But death, curses, nor the wrath of the Gods will keep him from returning to her.
Poseidon will use Greece's war to get what he wants: Medusa. He does not care that she belongs to another. He does not care that she will be damned. He is a God, an Olympian, and she will be his.

Loves of Olympus 02: For the Love of Hades by Sasha Summers

Hades, God of Death, has no heart. Persephone is determined to prove otherwise…
Hades, the Lord of the Underworld, has no patience for living things or his Olympian brethren. His purpose is order, administering justice to those who enter his realm, and keeping the balance decreed by the Fates. Meeting Persephone sways his focus, her gentle sweetness threatening his control. But he will not be tempted. Poseidon’s scheming wreaks havoc upon Persephone. Hades has no choice – he must rescue her.
Hades awakens something within the Goddess Persephone. She feels no fear from his brooding presence. In truth, she’s never felt so alive. Every stolen moment together only confirms her instinct: he is meant to be hers. Such a powerful union suit will face opposition – from Olympus, her troubled betrothed, the Fates, even Hades himself – but she is determined to win his heart.

The Mephisto Covenant 01: The Redemption of Ajax by Trinity Faegen

Sasha is desperate to find out who murdered her father. When getting the answer means pledging her soul to Eryx, she unlocks a secret that puts her in grave danger--she is an Anabo, a daughter of Eve, and Eryx's biggest threat. A son of Hell, immortal, and bound to Earth forever, Jax looks for redemption in the Mephisto Covenant--God's promise he will find peace in the love of an Anabo. After a thousand years, he's finally found the girl he's been searching for: Sasha. With the threat of Eryx always looming, Jax knows he has to keep Sasha safe and win her over. But can he? Will Sasha love him and give up her mortal life?

Wildefire 01: Wildefire by Karsten Knight 

Ashline Wilde never received an instruction manual on how to be a 16-year-old Polynesian volcano goddess. If she had, it might have contained helpful warnings such as:
• Dreaming about your (thankfully) mortal boyfriend may cause your bed to spontaneously combust
• Oven mitts should be worn at all times during heavy make-out sessions
Instead, Ash has to learn these life lessons the hard way as her dormant powers erupt at the most awkward times. In the wake of a hometown tragedy, Ash transfers to Blackwood Academy, a boarding school nestled in California’s redwoods, where a group of fellow gods-on-earth have mysteriously convened. As if sophomore year couldn’t get any worse, her storm goddess older sister, the wild and unpredictable Eve, resurfaces to haunt Ashline. With a war between the gods looming over Blackwood, Ash must master the fire smoldering within her before she clashes with her sister one final time, which leads us to life-lesson #3:
• When warm and cold fronts collide, there’s guaranteed to be a storm.

Touch of Death 01:Touch of Death by Kelly Hashway

Jodi Marshall isn’t sure how she went from normal teenager to walking disaster. One minute she’s in her junior year of high school, spending time with her amazing boyfriend and her best friend. The next she’s being stalked by some guy no one seems to know. 
After the stranger, Alex, reveals himself, Jodi learns he’s not a normal teenager and neither is she. With a kiss that kills and a touch that brings the dead back to life, Jodi discovers she’s part of a branch of necromancers born under the 13th sign of the zodiac, Ophiuchus. A branch of necromancers that are descendents of Medusa. A branch of necromancers with poisoned blood writhing in their veins.
Jodi’s deadly to the living and even more deadly to the deceased. She has to leave her old, normal life behind before she hurts the people she loves. As if that isn’t difficult enough, Jodi discovers she’s the chosen one who has to save the rest of her kind from perishing at the hands of Hades. If she can’t figure out how to control her power, history will repeat itself, and her race will become extinct.
