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.
Here I go again featuring Aussie books that aren’t readily available where I’m based. I’ve seen rave reviews from Aussie book bloggers about Nicola Moriarty’s books so I’ve been curious ever since I found out about them. It’s a little frustrating that these books are only available in Australia or online through Fishpond (which I still haven’t tried because I’ve heard that the customer service isn’t that great). I have a feeling that if I ever visit the land down under, I’d probably go bankrupt buying books. I’ve read books written by Nicola’s sisters, Liane and Jaclyn so I’m really interested in trying another Moriarty author. These women’s parents must have given them writer vitamins or something while they were growing up. How awesome is it to have three published authors in the family?
Here’s the summary of Paper Chains from Goodreads:
Hannah, you see, is running from her life back in Sydney. Now in London, she’s trying to put the past behind her, and finding this amazing new friend is a positive step forward. If only she could stop punishing herself for what she did.
India knows Hannah is hiding something big, and she’s determined to figure it out. Fast.
Because India has a secret of her own… One that is currently sealed in a love letter that’s making its journey across Europe in the most unconventional way.
Before it reaches its destination, can India help Hannah learn to forgive herself? And will Hannah wake up and realise that India needs rescuing too…?
Here’s the summary of Free-Falling from Goodreads:
Belinda’s life is in free-fall after the sudden death of her fiancé Andy. But then ghostly signs begin to appear which suggest he might not really be gone. And Belinda begins to tumble even further – until she finds his final parting gift. But will it be enough to save her?
Evelyn McGavin, Andy’s mum, is also struggling in her bereavement. She copes with her sorrow by shoplifting (once), hating Belinda (constantly) and jumping out of a plane. In her skydiving instructor, Baz, she finds an unexpected friend. But why is he so agitated when he hears how Andy died?
Two women, united in their loss, separated by their sorrow. And yet still linked in a most unexpected way…
If you’ve been lucky enough to read these two books, please feel free to let me know what you thought of them. How about you, what book is at the top of your wishlist?
