Want Books: Fury by Shirley Marr

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 cannot remember where I first heard about this book I’m featuring this week, but I know I confused it one too many times with that other book with the same title and almost the same cover. Only, I knew it was the book’s blurb that got to me. I lost this book from my radar for a while until one of my Goodreads friends reviewed it. That’s when I understood why it was a bit hard to remember: not only is there another book with the same title, but there’s also another author with the same surname. Eeps. Anyway, my Goodreads friend sang praises to this novel, and that just really made me want this more.

Let me tell you my story.
Not just the facts I know you want to hear.
If I’m going to tell you my story,
I’m telling it my way.

Strap yourself in…

Eliza Boans has everything.
A big house.
A great education.
A bright future.

So why is she sitting in a police station confessing to murder?

How intriguing, right? This is Aussie YA fiction, and you know what they say about Aussie YA books.

Anyway, I checked Book Depository for this, but it’s currently unavailable, and I haven’t spotted a copy of this anywhere yet…so it may take some time before I get this. Unless someone would be nice enough to send me a copy. *bats eyelashes*

Oh well. I don’t know if that begging works, but I can still wait. I’m pretty sure I’ll stumble over this book sometime when I’m not expecting it. :D In the meantime, I’ll content myself with reading this short Fury reader sample.

4 Thoughts on “Want Books: Fury by Shirley Marr

  1. Yay, you made a Want Books post for this! Fury is also on my wishlist, the premise is so intriguing but I haven’t managed to grab a copy. Have you heard of fishpondworld.com? They sell Aussie books and they have free worldwide shipping. I’ve been trying to decide what to order from them but maybe after I finish reading my Aussie books – I still have Good Oil from my Aussie YA batch.

    • I just checked Fury in fishpondworld and whoaaaa it’s $21. o_o And it was originally $39. Darn these books are expensive. o_O

      • LOL yeah, Aussie books are really more expensive that US or UK editions. You have my copy of Six Impossible Things with you, right? I think it still has its price tag on it.
