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:
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? 🙂
