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 posted a rreview of Knife by R.J. Anderson yesterday and I was pleasantly surprised when I got a tweet from the author herself. Isn’t that cool? That’s why I love Twitter, it lets me interact with awesome authors. Anyway, I mentioned in my review that I already have a copy of the second book in the series – Rebel – but I still don’t have a copy of the third one, Arrow, so I’m featuring it as my Want Books pick this week. I love the UK covers for this series, they’re all so pretty and shiny. If you like the UK covers as well, you can get them from the Book Depository.
Here’s the summary from R.J. Anderson’s website:
Rhosmari trembled as the Empress walked over to her. ‘Oh, do not struggle. There is nowhere for you to escape,’ the Empress said, her voice silken and sweet. Then she unsheathed a small dagger from her waist. ‘This will only hurt a little…’
Rhosmari has lived her whole life on a sheltered chain of faery islands. But with the Empress’s power growing, and her desire to enslave the entire faery race becoming a reality, Rhosmari knows she must fight back…
I really should buy a copy of this soon while the UK edition is still available locally. What about you, what book is in your wishlist?
