Edit 31.05.2011: Bis zum 01.06.2011 um 12:00 Uhr Mittags könnt ihr noch abstimmen. Die Funktion ist danach zwar noch weiter eröffnet, jedoch nicht mehr aussagekräftig für das endgültige Ergebnis!
Da ich nun so viele schöne, englische Hörbücher gefunden habe, bei denen ich sehr gut mit den Sprechern klar komme, mich aber nicht entscheiden kann, habe ich mir gedacht, ich würde es schön finden, ein Hörbuch zu besprechen, was sich die Mehrheit von euch wünscht. Aus diesem Grund habe ich zunächst einmal die Coverbilder zusammengestellt und danach in chronologischer Reihenfolge (Das heißt, von links oben, über rechts immer weiter nach unten), die Klappentexte herausgesucht. Dieses Mal werde ich keine „sonstiges“ Option anbieten, da ich erstens nicht weiß, ob Audible.de das Hörbuch hat und zweitens brauche ich eine/n Hörbuchsprecher/in, die mir auf Anhieb gefällt.
Ich würde mich freuen, wenn einige von euch abstimmten. Bis jetzt habe ich noch keine Deadline fürs Abstimmen angesetzt, sobald es aber eine gibt, gebe ich euch natürlich bescheid! 🙂 Bis zu drei Häkchen könnt ihr setzen. Ich tendiere am meisten zwischen „Abandon“, „Die for me“, „Divergent“ und „Enclave“. (Die Hörbuchsprecherinnen klingen bei denen mit am Besten! ;))
Also, ran ans Abstimmen, ich bin schon auf das Ergebnis und eure Wahl gespannt! 😀
The Dark Divine (Ungekürzt) Bree Despain
Grace Divine, daughter of the local pastor, always knew something terrible happened the night Daniel Kalbi disappeared–the night she found her brother Jude collapsed on the porch, covered in his own blood–but she has no idea what a truly monstrous secret that night held.
The memories her family has tried to bury resurface when Daniel returns, three years later, and enrolls in Grace and Jude’s high school. Despite promising Jude she’ll stay away, Grace cannot deny her attraction to Daniel’s shocking artistic abilities, his way of getting her to look at the world from new angles, and the strange, hungry glint in his eyes.
The closer Grace gets to Daniel, the more she jeopardizes her life, as her actions stir resentment in Jude and drive him to embrace the ancient evil Daniel unleashed that horrific night. Grace must discover the truth behind the boy’s dark secret…and the cure that can save the ones she loves. But she may have to lay down the ultimate sacrifice to do it–her soul.

In Beatrice Prior’s dystopian Chicago, society is divided into five factions, each dedicated to the cultivation of a particular virtue – Candor (the honest), Abnegation (the selfless), Dauntless (the brave), Amity (the peaceful), and Erudite (the intelligent). On an appointed day of every year, all sixteen-year-olds must select the faction to which they will devote the rest of their lives. For Beatrice, the decision is between staying with her family and being who she really is – she can’t have both. So she makes a choice that surprises everyone, including herself.
During the highly competitive initiation that follows, Beatrice renames herself Tris and struggles to determine who her friends really are – and where, exactly, a romance with a sometimes fascinating, sometimes infuriating boy fits into the life she’s chosen. But Tris also has a secret, one she’s kept hidden from everyone because she’s been warned it can mean death. And as she discovers a growing conflict that threatens to unravel her seemingly perfect society, she also learns that her secret might help her save those she loves…. or it might destroy her.
Debut author Veronica Roth bursts onto the literary scene with the first book in the Divergent series – dystopian thrillers filled with electrifying decisions, heartbreaking betrayals, stunning consequences, and unexpected romance.

And when Deuce and Fade are exiled from the enclave, the girl born in darkness must survive in daylight, in the ruins of a city whose population has dwindled to a few dangerous gangs. As the two are guided by Fade’s long-ago memories, they face dangers, and feelings, unlike any they’ve ever known.

Die for me (Ungekürzt) Amy Plum
My life had always been blissfully, wonderfully normal. But it only took one moment to change everything.
Suddenly, my sister, Georgia, and I were orphans. We put our lives into storage and moved to Paris to live with my grandparents. And I knew my shattered heart, my shattered life, would never feel normal again. Then I met Vincent.
Mysterious, sexy, and unnervingly charming, Vincent Delacroix appeared out of nowhere and swept me off my feet. Just like that, I was in danger of losing my heart all over again. But I was ready to let it happen.
Of course, nothing is ever that easy. Because Vincent is no normal human. He has a terrifying destiny, one that puts his life at risk every day. He also has enemies… immortal, murderous enemies who are determined to destroy him and all of his kind.
While I’m fighting to piece together the remnants of my life, can I risk putting my heart – as well as my life and my family’s – in jeopardy for a chance at love?
