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 really, really want a copy of Laura Buzo’s latest novel, Holier Than Thou. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Good Oil (to be published in the US as Love and Other Perishable Items) from the same author and I liked that it was a cross between YA and New Adult. Looks like Holier Than Thou has older characters and I have a feeling I’ll like it even more! Unfortunately, it’s only available in Australia right now. And like I mentioned in previous posts, I’m still a bit hesitant in trying out Fishpond. I might change my mind soon and if that happens, my credit card will probably suffer. I want so many Aussie titles and if you’ve bought books from the land down under before, you know that they’re more expensive than usual. Anyone coming to the Philippines from Australia anytime soon? :)
Here’s the summary from Goodreads:
Holly Yarkov has a boyfriend who is a gift from the universe. She has a job that fulfils her even as it wears her down. She has a core group of friends from high school. And she has a layer of steel around her heart that is beginning to tarnish. Just as she is reaching for a future she can’t quite see, Holly is borne back into the past by memories of her beloved father, and of the boy-who-might-have-been…
Looks intriguing, right? What about you, what book is in your wishlist? I’ll be out-of-town by the time this post goes up so I won’t be able to reply to comments until I get back. Just thought I’d schedule something while I’m away. Hope you’re all having a lovely weekend!
