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 know I usually put up my Want Books posts on Saturdays but the internet connection at home was acting up yesterday so I wasn’t able to go online. So here’s my Want Books pick for this week: Unsticky by Sarra Manning. Emily of Emily and Her Little Pink Notes (who is on a blogging hiatus) has been recommending Sarra Manning’s YA books but I haven’t had a chance to read them yet. Then I saw Angie’s review of Unsticky; and knew that I had to read it. Read what Angie had to say and I’m sure you’ll be convinced as well.
Here’s the summary from Sarra Manning’s website:
Money makes the world go round – that’s what twenty-something Grace Reeves is learning. Stuck in a grind where everyone’s ahead apart from her, she’s partied out, disillusioned, and massively in debt. If she’s dumped by another rock-band wannabe, squashed by anyone else at her cut-throat fashion job, or chased by any more bailiffs, Grace suspects she’ll fall apart…
So when older, sexy and above all, wealthy art-dealer Vaughn appears, she’s intrigued against her will. Could she handle being a sugar daddy’s arm candy?
Soon Grace is thrown into a world of money and privilege, at Vaughn’s beck and call in return for thousands of pounds in luxurious gifts, priceless clothes – and cash. Where’s the line between acting the trophy girlfriend, and selling yourself for money?
And, more importantly: whatever happened to love?
What about you, what book is in your wishlist?
