Want Books? is a weekly meme hosted 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.
I normally don’t judge books by their covers, but this one just stands out:
Pretty, right? I saw this book featured in That Cover Girl and I thought the cover looked nice, but I did not pay attention to the blurb until later, when people started adding it to their Goodreads wish lists. When I read it, I knew I wanted it:
Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John
THE CHALLENGE: Piper has one month to get a paying gig for Dumb—the hottest new rock band in school.
THE DEAL: If she does it, she’ll become manager of the band and get her share of the profits, which she desperately needs since her parents raided her college fund.
THE CATCH: Managing one egomaniacal pretty boy, one talentless piece of eye candy, one crush, one silent rocker, and one angry girl who is ready to beat her up. And doing it all when she’s deaf. With growing self-confidence, an unexpected romance, and a new understanding of her family’s decision to buy a cochlear implant for her deaf baby sister, Piper just may discover her own inner rock star.
This reminds me so much of Audrey, Wait! by Robin Benway, which I absolutely adored. :) I just read the excerpt is available at the author’s website and it seems to be a very fun read! This was released last week, and I’m contemplating on getting the Kindle version first because of the lack of shelf space in the apartment…but the cover! The cover is so pretty! This would look very pretty on my (future) shelf! :)
