Want Books: Friday Brown


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 can’t believe that my last Want Books post was in July. I guess that’s what happens when a blogging slump occurs. Anyway, I haven’t even read Vikki Wakefield’s debut novel All I Ever Wanted but her sophomore novel Friday Brown is already on my wishlist. I’ve been hearing good things about it from Aussie bloggers and both the premise and the cover look intriguing. I have a feeling it’s something that I’ll enjoy reading. I still haven’t given Fishpond a try so the Aussie wishlist just keeps on growing.

Here’s the summary from Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Friday Brown is on the run—running to escape memories of her mother and of the family curse. And of a grandfather who’d like her to stay. She’s lost, alone and afraid.

Silence, a street kid, finds Friday and she joins him in a gang led by beautiful, charismatic Arden. When Silence is involved in a crime, the gang escapes to a ghost town in the outback. In Murungal Creek, the town of never leaving, Friday must face the ghosts of her past. She will learn that sometimes you have to stay to finish what you started—and often, before you can find out who you are, you have to become someone you were never meant to be.

Looks pretty good, right? What about you, what book is in your wishlist?

  1. I’m really looking forward to Quintana of Charyn 😀 That’s pretty much all consuming in my mind right now.

    That book your highlighted looks cool too. 😀

    • Alex, I’m looking forward to reading Quintana too! But it won’t be internationally available until early next year. Are you planning to order it from Fishpond?

  2. The cover of this and All I Ever Wanted are lovely. I want to read both.

    • I agree, they did a pretty good job designing the covers for Vikki Wakefield’s books. I like this one a bit better than All I Ever Wanted’s cover design though.
