Los Libros Más Esperados: Mayo 2017

Cada año nuestros hobbies -y el consumismo- nos invita a gastar en cosas nuevas: videojuegos, música, cine, cómics y más. Pero un apartado que siempre lleva un espacio especial -al menos en mi- son los libros.

Gracias a tiendas virtuales (como Amazon Kindle), mi biblioteca local y traperas donde puedo encontrar joyitas a bajo precio, mi compra de libros últimamente se ha visto reducida. No obstante, siempre aparecen títulos que vas a querer adquirir recién salen del horno y el 2017 me ofrece una buena cantidad de ellos.

Para no hacer una mega-entrada, decidí dividir el post y listar libros según los meses de mayor interés (mayo, junio y septiembre, hasta el momento). Pero bien, sin más preámbulo, listaré los libros que más espero para mayo 2017.

INTO THE WATER – Paula Hawkins
Mayo 2

¿Recuerdan «The Girl on the Train»? Paula Hawkins regresa con una nueva novela de suspenso psicológico.

A single mother turns up dead at the bottom of the river that runs through town. Earlier in the summer, a vulnerable teenage girl met the same fate. They are not the first women lost to these dark waters, but their deaths disturb the river and its history, dredging up secrets long submerged.

Left behind is a lonely fifteen-year-old girl. Parentless and friendless, she now finds herself in the care of her mother’s sister, a fearful stranger who has been dragged back to the place she deliberately ran from—a place to which she vowed she’d never return.

With the same propulsive writing and acute understanding of human instincts that captivated millions of readers around the world in her explosive debut thriller, The Girl on the Train, Paula Hawkins delivers an urgent, twisting, deeply satisfying read that hinges on the deceptiveness of emotion and memory, as well as the devastating ways that the past can reach a long arm into the present.

Beware a calm surface—you never know what lies beneath.

SINCE WE FELL – Dennis Lehane
Mayo 9

Dennis Lehane, sin lugar a dudas, es uno de mis autores preferidos. Su nuevo libro «Since We Fell» es una de las que más he estado esperando. La novela es una obra separada de las travesías de Kenzie-Gennaro y la serie de Coughlin, por lo que se puede leer libremente. El autor es nativo de Boston y, como haré un pequeño viaje a esa ciudad el próximo mes, puede ser que regrese a casa con ese libro en manos.

Since We Fell follows Rachel Childs, a former journalist who, after an on-air mental breakdown, now lives as a virtual shut-in. In all other respects, however, she enjoys an ideal life with an ideal husband. Until a chance encounter on a rainy afternoon causes that ideal life to fray. As does Rachel’s marriage. As does Rachel herself. Sucked into a conspiracy thick with deception, violence, and possibly madness, Rachel must find the strength within herself to conquer unimaginable fears and mind-altering truths. By turns heart- breaking, suspenseful, romantic, and sophisticated, Since We Fell is a novel of profound psychological insight and tension. It is Dennis Lehane at his very best.

GWENDY’S BUTTON BOX – Stephen King & Richard Chizmar
Mayo 30

No es sorpresa para muchos que Stephen King ronde por esta lista, Gwendy’s Button Box -junto a Richard Chizmar– es la próxima obra del autor desde «End of Watch«. Con una extensión de apenas 180 páginas, el pequeño libro promete ofrecer toda una tarde (o toda una noche) con una buena historia en manos.

The little town of Castle Rock, Maine has witnessed some strange events and unusual visitors over the years, but there is one story that has never been told… until now.

There are three ways up to Castle View from the town of Castle Rock: Route 117, Pleasant Road, and the Suicide Stairs. Every day in the summer of 1974 twelve-year-old Gwendy Peterson has taken the stairs, which are held by strong (if time-rusted) iron bolts and zig-zag up the cliffside.

At the top of the stairs, Gwendy catches her breath and listens to the shouts of the kids on the playground. From a bit farther away comes the chink of an aluminum bat hitting a baseball as the Senior League kids practice for the Labor Day charity game.

One day, a stranger calls to Gwendy: «Hey, girl. Come on over here for a bit. We ought to palaver, you and me.»

On a bench in the shade sits a man in black jeans, a black coat like for a suit, and a white shirt unbuttoned at the top. On his head is a small neat black hat. The time will come when Gwendy has nightmares about that hat…

A finales del próximo mes trataré de recopilar otra pequeña lista con los libros que más espero para junio 2017. En la lista estarán autores como John Grisham y Joseph Finder. ¡Estén atentos!
