Mina V. Esguerra’s Latest Novel: That Kind of Guy

If you’ve been following my blog for a while then you probably know that Mina V. Esguerra is my favorite Filipino chick lit author. I’ve featured her books several times and even managed to convince other readers to read her novellas. Her latest Summit Book, That Kind of Guy, now has a cover! I believe this is a companion novel to No Strings Attached and will be released sometime this April. I like the title – I think it has a romantic comedy feel to it. And I love that the girl on the cover is holding a book. 😛

The summary from the back cover:

Good girl Julie never expected her hot former-player boyfriend to propose marriage. But when he did, she turned him down for reasons even she couldn’t figure out. Will she settle for a nice, safe guy instead? Or will she let him find his way back into her carefully guarded heart?

Can’t wait to meet Julie and find out if she’s a bookworm. Mina is hosting a giveaway and these are the mechanics for it: Post something cute/interesting/revealing/scandalous (maybe not scandalous) on your blog about the topic “My Kind of Guy.”

So I don’t really think I have a type but I’d love to date a guy who shares some of my interests – someone who likes to read, travel and try different restaurants around the Metro. Having things in common would definitely make it easier for us to connect. He doesn’t have to read the same kind of books that I do, I think it would just be nice if he’s a reader as well. Or if he’s not a reader, he understands how crazy excited I can be about books, would patiently listen if I want to rant or rave about a book and would be okay with the idea that there are times when I’d rather stay at home and read than go out. Also, it would be nice to receive bookish presents. Or he can do what some of my friends do – either they ask for a wishlist before my birthday or they go with me to a bookstore, let me pick a book that I want and then just pay for it. There are so many other characteristics that I can enumerate about my kind of guy but these are the ones that I choose to highlight because I’m posting it here, in my book blog. I also wouldn’t mind dating some of these fictional crushes:

Lucas from Fairy Tale Fail by Mina V. Esguerra
Gen from the Queen’s Thief series by Megan Whalen Turner
Jonah Griggs from Jellicoe Road by Melina Marchetta
Vidanric from Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith
Bran from Son of the Shadows by Juliet Marillier
Brigan from Fire by Kristin Cashore
Curran from the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews

Care to share some tidbits of information about your kind of guy? Or what about some of your literary crushes? Are you as excited as I am for Mina’s latest book?
