Something for Saturday: The Dating Detox Trailer!

The Dating Detox is on my eReader, next in line to be read, so when the author Gemma Burgess (@GKateB) put out a Twitter call for people to host her new book trailer on their blog, of course I responded!

I'm glad I did. The trailer is amazing -- very professionally done, and it certainly accomplishes its goal of making you want to know more! It has some great London scenes and reminded me of a sort of updated Bridget Jones. I can't wait to dive into the book later on today!

If you're not in the UK, you can order the book from Karen Jones Gowen's new favourite site (hehe!) , The Book Depository.

(Note: If you're having streaming issues, it's probably best to turn off the HD.)

  2. Awesome! Talk about sitting here totally into the screen. Yes, a bit of Bridget Jones. But not enough to lose the viewer (for I loved BJ and comparisons couldn't continue)... and talk about dialogue to die for...gotta get this book (that will be turned into a move!)

  8. Great trailer, I like the idea of giving a movie feel to the story, setting the reader up for the book. It works!

  13. Whoa, too funny! I laughed out loud several times! And it's reminded me how much I want to visit London!

    Is it just me, or did that one shot of the actress look a little like Kate Hudson with the wind blowing in her hair?

    And I've never heard of book trailers until now. Is this common on the other side of the Atlantic?

  14. I'm having streaming issues, too, but I think it's just drinking too much tea that's the problem.

  16. By the way, I was hoping Amazon.uk would have an excerpt of The Hating Game, but I guess not. The story sounds so very funny! Ever since reading In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner, I've enjoyed chick lit.
