I got only one book this week:
THE GOOD LUCK GIRL by Kerry Reichs
Maeve Connolly is tired of being labelled as irresponsible. Yes, she may spend unhealthy amounts of time on Facebook and watch marathon sessions of America's Next Top Model, but Maeve isn't a typical post-college slacker. Determined to change her life and make her own luck, Maeve impulsively decides on a grand adventure - driving cross country to LA. But en route, Maeve's car breaks down and she is stranded in Unknown, Arizona. It is here, alone and in the middle of nowhere, that Maeve finally faces up to the reality of her past. What Maeve has denied acknowledging, even to herself, is that she isn't running from bad luck, but from something much more complicated - something that made her feel as though the world would never turn again, and her heart would always remain closed. What begins as a hilarious and quirky coming-of-age tale soon deepens into a complex portrayal of survivorship and one woman's journey to a new beginning. Funny, irreverent, and moving in equal measure, The Good Luck Girl will leave you smiling through tears.
I was planning to wait for the paperback of this one, but then three things happened that made me order the book immdediately:
a) I got 10 % off at Book Depository;
b) great Amazon reviews that made the book sound even better;
c) different paperback cover (it's alright, but I prefer the one I got).
This HB/TPB cover appears all cute and wonderful at first sight, but there's one thing that's sort of bothering me now: the gorgeous girl on the cover has hairy arms, lol. I know that sounds ridiculous and I might get flamed for this, but I can't help noticing it everytime I look at the cover, heh. I personally don't find that very attractive, but to each their own and the rest of the cover is still pretty, kind of reminiscent of The Truth about Forever.
Hope everyone else had a great week for books and everything else! :)
