I think by now you all understand my love for all things Emily Giffin. She is one of the few authors from whom I have read every one of their books. Each one has been fantastic, with Love the One You’re With being my favorite up until this point, and all the rest coming in at a tie for close second. I was browsing through her website and found out the following:
Good news: Emily Giffin has completed her sixth book!
Bad news: It isn’t out quite yet. The release date is not until July 24. However, I checked on Amazon and it has already gotten rave reviews–from all 21 customer reviews.
(Okay, side note, how did 21 customers get the goods before the release?! Apparently there is some program called “the vine” on Amazon where select customers are selected for pre-release reviews, based upon the helpfulness of their reviews on Amazon.com. ……so apparently I am reviewing my books on a media with no payback. Seeeeeee ya, Literette! Just kidding, I would never do that to you. But really, come on people, keep reading my blog so I can get famous and review books before they are open to the general public 🙂 )
More good news!: The generous Ms. Giffin has given us a free preview of the first chapter! Check it out here! I read through it and, not surprisingly, am already hooked. I’m always pleased by how Giffin can keep my attention so easily even without an immense amount of action. She just writes so darn well! I can’t say I was terribly surprised by the “secret” that the main character, Marian, is faced with, but I am incredibly anxious to find out the whole story…pun intended 😉
