Want Books? (3)

A very late Want Books? meme. I was trying to post this last Saturday, but I totally forgot.

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.
My picks for this week are books that has been sitting in my to-buy / to-read list but haven't had the chance to read, which I would love to do if only I can grab a copy. I don't think they sell copies here in my country.

I have to admit that the covers are what attracted me to the book first. And of course, the concept of "Angels" in the book. It's a very interesting teen novel, you'll have an idea of the uniqueness of the novel from the summary alone.

Title: Book of Love (Knight Angels #1)

When seventeen-year-old Jane Taylor witnessed her father's death at age seven, something happened to her. Ever since, her thoughts have been consumed by death, going so far as to foresee the ever-changing deaths of those around her.
Sixteen-year-old Emily Taylor always resented her sister’s closeness with their father, who died when she was only six. Ever since she can remember, she’s had the strange ability to read minds, something her father held the key to. Left helpless, she drowns herself in a world of prescription drugs, sending her responsible older sister Jane – who acted as the mother her real mother refused to be – over the edge.
Seventeen-year-old Wes Green was adopted as a baby, left carelessly by parents that clearly did not love him. He moved in next door to Jane, sharing an alleyway window and finding in her a childhood friend that soon turned into his high-school crush. All summer, though, the pain that’s been wracking his body seemed to come with no explanation. He was done growing, was plenty healthy, and worked out regularly as a member of the wrestling team. When senior year starts, though, and the pain gets worse, the changes ahead of him are anything but what he expected, and far to animal for his taste.
When Max Gordo, doomed to be a teenager for the next thousand years, found himself standing above her dying body, he saw in her bright eyes something he hadn’t seen in the nearly one-hundred-years he’d spent roaming Earth. Her father was already dead, but there was a chance he could still save her from the wreck. Jane was her name, and she was only seven, but already she was all he ever wanted. It was his job to bring her back, but it was an act that could have been the biggest mistake of his life.
When four teens enter Glenwood High on an unseasonably cool day in September, no one but Max could understand the future that was ahead of them. Drawn together by blood and friendship, they each hide a dark secret that will soon help to bind them even closer.
When the one face Max hoped to never see again shows up on school grounds – his evil twin brother, Greg – he knows that coming back for Jane was the wrong thing to do. Finding that Greg already knows about Max’s attraction for Jane, Max finds he can no longer hope to leave again, afraid of what Greg will do.
Max has to protect Jane, Jane wants to be normal, Wes wants Jane to love him, and Emily just wants the voices to stop...
And Greg... he just wants everyone dead.

Title: Book of Revenge (Knight Angels #2)

New characters, New world, but old enemies. Emily struggles to ignore a new friend with emotions that temp her, Wes delves deeper into his past and family while finding friendship isn't reserved for the human race alone, Jane finds out her dear Max isn't what he seems, Gregs friendships cost him more than he expected, and Max forgets that the truth is best. But then again, someone always has to be the liar...
Emotional baggage, begrudged enemies, and the bitterness that comes when the honeymoon of their friendship fades...
Will the love survive, or as it all just a game?

I'm a big fan of books with Angels, and this looks like a very interesting read.


  1. I saw a copy of Knight Angels in Fully Booked Promenade. It's expensive for a paperback though, about 1k+ php

  2. Definitely! I have a *free & legal* version of the first book in eBook format. Still haven't gotten to reading it, since the TBR is neverending. :P Definitely should order this sometimes soon, though. I've heard it's FABULOUS. Seriously, haven't heard an inkling of negativity about it.

  3. @sylvia: I might've seen one before, but I really can't remember. HOLY COW... 1K? For a paperback? No way...!

    @cass: cass! oh, how did you get a copy? so lucky! These books have been in my TBR list, way up there, but I couldn't seem to find a copy here.

  4. Thanks for doing a Want Books post! I included it in the roundup. You're right, those covers are lovely. Have you looked into ordering it from Book Depository if they're not available (or they're too expensive) over here?


I love getting comments from my readers and fellow bookworms, and I try my best to respond to all of them. Feel free to give me a piece of your thoughts. Also, this is an award-free blog. I simply don't have the time to highlight them anymore, but thank you for thinking of my blog!
