Chain Reaction Book Trailer

I posted the first two book trailers for Simone Elkeles' Perfect Chemistry trilogy. That first one still makes me laugh. Self-effacement in a book trailer? Never a bad thing. I figured I might as well continue with tradition, so here is the trailer for Chain Reaction--the third and last book in the trilogy--due out August 16. Pretty, pretty Fuentes brothers. Which one is your favorite?

    I think I will never get over my deep and abiding love for Alex but there's something about Carlos which blows him out of the water. I think it's the lack of self-assurance and the constant reshaping of himself as he takes stock of the world around him. He makes mistakes but he always recalculates his position where as Alex as so pig-stubborn sometimes.

    I can't wait to see what she does with Luis although I'm worried because I always hoped she'd break her holding pattern with Luis and make him a little more delicate than the other two. All three boys can't be just as forward and outwardly confident, surely?

  2. In my humble opinion, video trailers for books are just weird...

  3. I remember laughing at the first trailer it was really funny.

    I'm excited to read this book. HOT brothers! I'm not sure yet if I'll like Luis, I only remember him as a 'kid' so I have trouble seeing him all grown up =P

  4. Of the actors, Alex with the curly hair for sure! Of the characters, I think I liked Carlos better. It will be interesting to get to know Luis better.

  5. Elle, I hear ya. I just re-read RULES OF ATTRACTION in preparation for CHAIN REACTION, and was surprised at how well it held up. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I loved Carlos even more this time around.

    Ondrej, it really is an unusual media, isn't it? I'm not often a fan, but the trailers for this series fascinate me for some reason.

    pattepoilue, oh man, I loved the first one. It was hysterical and made fun of itself in such a way that really endeared it (and Simone Elkeles for doing it) to me.

    Suey, I think I tend to agree with you.

In the Beginning, or the First Ten Books I Reviewed on the Blog

Top Ten Tuesday is a bookish feature hosted at That Artsy Reader Girl
It's been awhile, but this topic was too good to pass up. When I thought about it, I genuinely could not recall which were the first ten books I actually reviewed here on the blog. So then, of course, I had to know. The thing is, I originally started the whole thing simply posting a once a month list of my favorite reads and rereads of the month. That went on for some time until lo and behold I went ahead and wrote and posted my first review on November 9, 2007. In hindsight, I probably should have known exactly which book pushed me over the edge into full fledged reviews. So this was a rather delightful journey back in time. Do you remember the first book you ever reviewed (in any forum) or what made you take the plunge? Here are my first ten (and I have to say, looking at this snapshot from the past, these remain some of my absolute favorite authors and a pretty spot-on array of the genres I read and love tod…

Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Ellie and the Harpmaker by Hazel Prior

It is a pleasure to be a part of the blog tour for Hazel Prior's debut novel Ellie and the Harpmaker. I confess it was the title that drew me in when Berkley approached me about a possible review. It sounded a bit fey, a bit on the ethereal side. The comparisons to the exquisite Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Finedecidedly did not hurt. And so I readily accepted and opened my review copy to the first page. A thought:
Some things are easier to hide than others.

A fact:
Harps come under the "others" category. So do small boys. As you know by now, I am such a sucker for a good epigraph, and this one did the trick nicely. As did the novel's opening lines: A woman came to the barn today. Her hair was the color of walnut wood. Her eyes were the color of bracken in October. Her socks were the color of cherries, which was noticeable because all the rest of her clothes were sad colors. And so we are introduced to one Dan Hollis and the particular way that he sees the world and …

Review | The Flatshare by Beth O'Leary

All it took was hearing the basic bones of the premise of Beth O'Leary's debut novel The Flatsharefor me to determine I would absolutely be reading it as soon as I possibly could. I was so delighted to be granted access to an advanced reading copy by Flatiron Books. Even better, it became apparent from the moment I read the first few lines that this reading experience would take place in one headlong rush. No significant breaks allowed, let alone required. The Flatshare was published first in the UK and then slightly later here in the U.S. I dithered over which cover to buy as both have much to recommend them, but I finally decided on the U.S. cover (pictured here). I just love the two of them standing on either side of the same door, the tiny heart between the title and author name.
