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.
Laini Taylor is an author that comes highly recommended by Kristen of Fantasy Cafe and she said that Lips Touch: Three Times is her favorite out of all the author’s books. I saw the hardcover edition of this in a local bookstore and loved the illustrations accompanying the stories. However, I thought it was a little expensive at more than P900 and since I’m not sure if I could read it right away, I’m trying to decide if I should just wait for the paperback. Will the paperback contain the same illustrations though? Sigh, there are so many books that I want to get right now but I really should work on my TBR pile first.
Here’s the summary from Laini Taylor’s website:
Everyone dreams of getting the kiss of a lifetime – but what if that kiss carried some unexpected consequences? A girl who’s always been in the shadows finds herself pursued by the unbelievably attractive new boy at school, who may or may not be the death of her. Another girl grows up mute because of a curse placed on her by a vindictive spirit, and later must decide whether to utter her first words to the boy she loves and risk killing everyone who hears her if the curse is real. And a third girl discovers that the real reason for her transient life with her mother has to do with belonging — literally belonging — to another world entirely, full of dreaded creatures who can transform into animals, and whose queen keeps little girls as personal pets until they grow to childbearing age.
What about the rest of you, what book is in your wishlist?
