trailers good, sequels bad

Not a good week for sequels for me. I've already mentioned my ennui over City of Ashes, but I read Cross My Heart and Hope to Spy last night, and I kind of hated it. By kind of, I mean that I was put off by the absence of everything that made the first book charming and fun.

It's true that, except for Titanic, Kate Winslet can read the phone book and put me in rapture, but this looks like it would be amazing even if it were someone else. I have the sinking feeling that the ending is going to be VERY similar to Music Box (which I love, in a completely masochistic way). I'll just bring tissues. Lots and lots of tissues*
