Want Books: Plain Kate

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.

My pick for this week is Plain Kate by Erin Bow. I’ve seen a couple of book bloggers mention it although I haven’t seen any reviews yet. The release date is September 1 but as usual, we still don’t have the book over here. I’m really curious about this one even if I haven’t heard anything specific about it.

Here’s the summary from Erin Bow’s website:

In a market town by a looping river there lived an orphan girl called Plain Kate…

Kate’s is a colorful world of brokenhearted magicians, wandering gypsy clans, carved charms and stolen shadows. It’s a dark world of ghosts, fog and questions. It’s a dangerous world of witch burnings, persecution and plague. Her story is a coming-of-age story, a story about family and belonging, trust and betrayal, bravery and sacrifice, death and what lies beyond. Also, there’s a talking cat in it.

A Russian-flavored historical fantasy for readers twelve and up.

The premise looks good! Has anyone read this? I’d love to find out more about it. Also, Erin Bow has a book in works with a Filipino character in it! I’m excited to read that one as well.

What about you, what’s in your wishlist? 🙂

    • Oh wow, Erin, thanks for dropping by my blog! I had no idea we’ll be getting the UK edition. Wood Angel looks beautiful! Can’t wait to see it around here. Although I hope the bookstores will also order the US edition so we can have it sooner. 🙂

  1. I want this book, too! I’ve Wow-ed it before, and I feel kind of sad there’s no Kindle edition. But I think the actual book is pretty so I may want to get that instead.

    Wood Angel looks beautiful, though! 🙂 How far is March 2011? Heee.

    I am extremely curious about Erin’s book with a Filipino character, too. 😀

    • Oh you did a Waiting on Wednesday post about this book? LOL I don’t do that meme anymore since I have this one already and I can feature books that are already out but still not available here.

      Yes, Wood Angel is beautiful! Actually, I like the Plain Kate edition as well so I’m fine with whatever shows up in the bookstores here.

      I’m sure we’re both going to read that book with the Filipino character! 😛

      • Haha I know, I think most of the books that I did for WoW before are still not available here. I like doing Want Books post because I already have a wishlist in Goodreads and this meme just highlights one of them at a time.
