Magnus Chase og de nordiske guder - Kampen om sommersværdet by Summary

Magnus Chase er helten i en ny serie af Rick Riordan, som skriver i sin kendte blanding af spænding og humor, men denne gang om de nordiske guder. Magnus Chase har ikke haft det for let. Siden en forfærdelig nat for to år siden, da hans mor sagde, at han skulle løbe for livet, har han levet alene på gaden i Boston på flugt fra politiet og myndighederne. Men også andre er på jagt efter Magnus: Hans onkel Randolph, som hans mor altid har advaret ham imod. Da Magnus falder i onklens baghold, fabler Randolph løs om nordiske guder og et fantastisk sværd, som har været tabt i tusindvis af år, men som retmæssigt tilhører Magnus. Historier om Asgårds guder, ulve og Ragnarok bobler op i Magnus' hukommelse. Men i samme øjeblik bliver byen angrebet af et ildmonster, som tvinger ham til at vælge mellem at redde sig selv eller hundredevis af uskyldige mennesker. Nogle gange er døden den bedste start på et nyt liv ... Rick Riordans bøger er oversat til 37 sprog og har solgt mere end 30 millioner eksemplarer.

Magnus Chase og de nordiske guder 3 - De dødes skib by Rick Riordan Summary

Magnus Chase er søn af Frej; sommerens, frugtbarhedens og sundhedens gud, så han er ikke ligefrem krigerisk anlagt. Derfor er det godt at kunne læne sig op ad sine trofaste venner, der bl.a. tæller valkyrier og dværge, for Magnus er måske ikke født med et sværd i hånden, men han har en evne til at rode sig ud i de værst tænkelige situationer! Denne gang er Magnus og hans venner nødt til at sejle til det fjerneste hjørne af Jotunheim og Niflheim i jagten på Asgårds største trussel. Vil de lykkes med deres mission, eller vil de blive opslugt af Ragnarok? 3. og afsluttende bind i serien om Magnus Chase. Læs også de to første i serien: Kampen om sommersværdet (1) Thors hammer (2)

A Woman's Place Is at the Top by Hannah Kimberley Summary

Annie Smith Peck is one of the most accomplished women of the twentieth century that you have never heard of. Peck was a scholar, educator, writer, lecturer, mountain climber, suffragist, and political activist. She was a feminist and an independent thinker who refused to let gender stereotypes stand in her way. Peck gained fame in 1895 when she first climbed the Matterhorn at the age of forty-five – not for her daring alpine feat, but because she climbed wearing pants. Fifteen years later, she was the first climber ever to conquer Mount Huascarán (21,831 feet) in Peru. In 1911, just before her sixtieth birthday, she entered a race with Hiram Bingham (the model for Indiana Jones) to climb Mount Coropuna. A Woman’s Place Is at the Top: The Biography of Annie Smith Peck is the first full length work about this incredible woman who single-handedly carved her place on the map of mountain climbing and international relations. Peck marched in suffrage parades and became a political speaker and writer before women had the right to vote. She was a propagandist, an expert on North-South American relations, and an author and lecturer contracted to speak as an authority on multinational industry and commerce before anyone had ever thought to appoint a woman as a diplomat. With unprecedented access to Peck’s original letters, artifacts, and ephemera, Hannah Kimberley brings Peck’s entire life to the page for the first time, giving Peck her rightful place in history.

Destiny takes a detour in this “wickedly witty and offbeat novel” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review) that was nominated for the National Book Award. Finn Easton sees the world through miles instead of minutes. It’s how he makes sense of the world, and how he tries to convince himself that he’s a real boy and not just a character in his father’s bestselling cult-classic book. Finn has two things going for him: his best friend, the possibly-insane-but-definitely-excellent Cade Hernandez, and Julia Bishop, the first girl he’s ever loved. Then Julia moves away, and Finn is heartbroken. Feeling restless and trapped in the book, Finn embarks on a road trip with Cade to visit their college of choice in Oklahoma. When an unexpected accident happens and the boys become unlikely heroes, they take an eye-opening detour away from everything they thought they had planned—and learn how to write their own destiny.

Havoc by Tom Kristensen Summary

A longtime cult-classic in Denmark, this novel about dissolution and despair has been out of print in the US for over eighty years until now. Ole Jastrau is the very model of an enterprising and ambitious young man of letters, poised on the brink of what is sure to be a distinguished career as a critic. In fact he is teetering on the brink of an emotional and moral abyss. Bored with his beautiful wife and chafing at the burdens of fatherhood, disdainful of the commercialism and political opportunism of the newspaper he works for, he feels more and more that his life lacks meaning. He flirts with Catholicism and flirts with Communism, but somehow he doesn’t have the makings of a true believer. Then he takes up with the bottle, a truly meaningful relationship. “Slowly and quietly,” he intends to go to the dogs. Jastrau’s romance with self-destruction will take him through all the circles of hell. The process will be anything but slow and quiet.

Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland Summary

John Green meets Rainbow Rowell in this irresistible story of first love, broken hearts, and the golden seams that put them back together again. Henry Page has never been in love. He fancies himself a hopeless romantic, but the slo-mo, heart palpitating, can't-eat-can't-sleep kind of love that he's been hoping for just hasn't been in the cards for him—at least not yet. Instead, he's been happy to focus on his grades, on getting into a semi-decent college and finally becoming editor of his school newspaper. Then Grace Town walks into his first period class on the third Tuesday of senior year and he knows everything's about to change. Grace isn't who Henry pictured as his dream girl—she walks with a cane, wears oversized boys' clothes, and rarely seems to shower. But when Grace and Henry are both chosen to edit the school paper, he quickly finds himself falling for her. It's obvious there's something broken about Grace, but it seems to make her even more beautiful to Henry, and he wants nothing more than to help her put the pieces back together again. And yet, this isn't your average story of boy meets girl. Krystal Sutherland's brilliant debut is equal parts wit and heartbreak, a potent reminder of the bittersweet bliss that is first love.

Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire by John August Summary

Arlo Finch in the Valley of Fire is the first book in a spellbinding fantasy adventure series by screenwriter John August. Some trails lead to magic. Some lead to danger. As Arlo looked around, the walls of his room began to vanish, revealing a moonlit forest. Only his bed remained, and the frame of his window, through which he saw the girl. The world on her side of the glass was sparkling with silver and gold, like a palace made of autumn leaves. She looked off to her right. Someone was coming. Her words came in an urgent whisper: "If I can see you, they can see you . . . Be careful, Arlo Finch.” Arlo Finch thought becoming a Ranger meant learning wilderness skills, like camping and knots. But upon arriving in the tiny town of Pine Mountain, Colorado, Arlo soon learns there's so much more. His new friends Indra and Wu teach him how to harness the wild magic seeping in from the mysterious Long Woods—a parallel realm of wonder and danger. First he must master the basics, including snaplights, thunderclaps and identifying supernatural creatures. But Arlo Finch is no ordinary Ranger, and this is no ordinary time. A dark and ancient force is sending threats into the real world . . . our world. Through perilous adventures and close calls, Arlo is awakened to his unique destiny—but the obstacles he faces will test the foundations of the Ranger's Vow: loyalty, bravery, kindness, and truth.

K-pop Confidential by Stephan Lee Summary

"I'm still giddy over this electrifying, big-hearted, all-kill smash of a debut. I couldn't put it down." -- Becky Albertalli, bestselling author of Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda In this romantic coming-of-age novel about chasing big dreams, a Korean-American girl travels to Seoul in hopes of debuting in a girl group at the same K-pop company behind the most popular boy band on the planet.

She doesn't see how a regular girl like her could possibly become one of those K-pop goddesses she sees on YouTube. Even though she can sing. Like, really sing.So when Candace secretly enters a global audition held by SLK's music label, the last thing she expects is to actually get a coveted spot in their trainee program.

And is a spot in the most hyped K-pop girl group of all time really worth risking her friendships, her future, and everything she believes in?
