Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted here at Chachic’s Book Nook and features released books that you want but you can’t have for some reason. It can be because it’s not available in your country, in your library or you don’t have the money for it right now. Everyone is free to join, just grab the image above. Leave a comment with a link to your post so I can do a roundup with each post.
I first heard about Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell when I saw Holly review it over at the Book Harbinger. I’ve been curious about the book ever since, especially since another blogger friend loved it. I’m currently in the middle of Rainbow Rowell’s other novel, Attachments, and I’m really enjoying it so far – that’s another reason why I want to get a copy of this book. I saw Eleanor and Park in the bookstore the other day but at SGD29, I felt like the large paperback edition was just too expensive. I’ll probably wait for the more affordable edition to become available here or maybe I can pre-order it from the Book Depository. Also, I’m usually not picky about these kinds of things but the Orion edition will nicely match my copy of Attachments.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Set over the course of one school year in 1986, Eleanor and Park is the story of two star-crossed misfits – smart enough to know that first love almost never lasts, but brave and desperate enough to try. When Eleanor meets Park, you’ll remember your own first love – and just how hard it pulled you under.
What about you, what book is in your wishlist? Hope you’re all having a lovely reading weekend.
