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’m behind on so blog-related activities – I’ve read If I Stay by Gayle Forman but I haven’t reviewed it. I thought it was a pretty good read. Which is why I decided to do a Want Books post for its companion novel, Where She Went. I really liked Adam in If I Stay and I would LOVE to read a book from his point of view. Although I’m a bit conflicted – If I Stay had an amazing ending and I don’t know how I’ll feel about revisiting the characters. I have a feeling curiosity will win though and I’d want to read this while the story of the first book is still fresh in my mind. I just need to find a copy. I dropped by the bookstore the other day to ask about it and it was out of stock in that branch. If you haven’t read If I Stay, DO NOT read the spoilery synopsis for this one. You’ve been warned.
Here’s the summary from Gayle Forman’s website:
Now living on opposite coasts, Mia is Julliard’s rising star and Adam is LA tabloid fodder, thanks to his new rock star status and celebrity girlfriend. When Adam gets stuck in New York by himself, chance brings the couple together again, for one last night. As they explore the city that has become Mia’s home, Adam and Mia revisit the past and open their hearts to the future — and each other.
