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’ve seen glowing reviews of All I Ever Wanted by Vikki Wakefield from Aussie book bloggers and Goodreads friends. It looks like something that I’d really enjoy reading. Unfortunately, it’s not internationally available and can only be purchased in Australia or through Fishpond. I’ve been meaning to try to order from Fishpond but I keep getting distracted by something else (like Book Depository’s 10% off coupon). I’m also hesitant to give it a try because I’ve heard some negative feedback about the site. If you’ve ordered from Fishpond, let me know about your experience. Aussie publishers, can you just please make these amazing books available internationally? 🙂 Would make life easier for us.
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Mim knows what she wants, and where she wants to go — anywhere but home, stuck in the suburbs with her mother who won’t get off the couch, and two brothers in prison. She’s set herself rules to live by, but she’s starting to break them.
Now Mim has to retrieve a lost package for her mother.
Does this make her a drug runner?
Why is a monster dog called Gargoyle hidden in the back shed?
And Jordan, the boy she sent Valentines to for years, why is he now suddenly a creep?
How come there’s a huge gap between her and her best friend, Tahnee?
And who is the mysterious girl next door who moans at night?
Over the nine days before her seventeenth birthday, Mim’s life turns upside down. She has problems, and she’s determined to solve them herself. But in the end, she works out who her people are, and the same things look entirely different.
Looks interesting, right? What about the rest of you, what book is in your wishlist?
