Girlfriend Has Issues

Tomorrow will be a banner day here at the Super Librarian bat cave. First, I'm finally using the gift certificate The Boyfriend got me over a year ago and am hitting the spa, where I'll be getting a massage (sheer heaven) and I'll once again have cute feet (pedicure here I come!). I also hope to devote more time to Heartsick by Chelsea Cain, which I honestly think will be The Next Big Thing.

But what the heck do I know? Really. I thought The Da Vinci Code would be a minor, midlist success and that nobody would want to read The Lovely Bones.

Besides the cool ARCs, the publisher seems more than eager to throw advertising dollars around, so we've got a series of book trailers - the first two of which (I think the plan is for three altogether) are now making the rounds on the 'Net.

Now honestly, I don't get the whole book trailer thing, and it doesn't really help matters that some of them look pretty amateurish. But these two? Totally kick ass. Just saying.

Hurry and finish! I want to know what you think!

At this very moment (haven't taken my lunch break yet!) I'm on page 60 and really, really enjoying it. I think the reporter, Susan, is my favorite character so far.

Oh, and for anybody who is interested - Alison has a great review over at her blog.

Rosie said...

She looks like such a nice girl...what happened? : ) Pretty good trailers there.

I always like the crazy ladies. I read reviews from authors on amazon. Lookin' good.

You know, your rueful 'but what do I know?' reminds me of one of the biggest mistakes I ever made: Thinking Green Day stunk, and they were barely worth reviewing in the magazine I was EIC of.
I did have more hits than misses, but that's one my staff held over my head for a long, long time.
I like getting recs, so I will search for this one.
