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.
To new followers, just wanted to give a brief background on why I started my Want Books meme. I have so many books in my wishlist and most of them have already been released so I wanted a meme to feature them, similar to what Waiting on Wednesday does for upcoming books. I thought it would be a good idea to do this instead of always whining about the books that I want not being available locally. 😛 I want to read The Silver Metal Lover because I’m craving for fantasy books lately and this one comes highly recommended by Janice of Janicu’s Book Blog.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
For sixteen-year-old Jane, life is a mystery she despairs of ever mastering. She and her friends are the idle, pampered children of the privileged class, living in luxury on an Earth remade by natural disaster. Until Jane’s life is changed forever by a chance encounter with a robot minstrel with auburn hair and silver skin, whose songs ignite in her a desperate and inexplicable passion.
Jane is certain that Silver is more than just a machine built to please. And she will give up everything to prove it. So she escapes into the city’s violent, decaying slums to embrace a love bordering on madness. Or is it something more? Has Jane glimpsed in Silver something no one else has dared to see — not even the robot or his creators? A love so perfect it must be destroyed, for no human could ever compete?
Doesn’t that look interesting? What about the rest of you, what book is in your wishlist?
