Everyone knows the story of the Wizard of Oz. Danielle Paige’s novel offers a new twist on the classic tale. The graphics in this trailer are really cool, and I really think help to capture the darker, a bit more twisted atmosphere of the book. The voiceover does a great job of summing up the book. I liked Dorothy Must Die and I think this trailer is a good representation of the what the book is about.

(Immortal Game #1)
Publisher: Feiwel & Friends
To be released: August 5, 2014
Summary (from Goodreads):
In one short summer, her entire life changes, and she sweeps through Blackbriar, prepped to take the beautiful people down from the inside. A whisper here, a look there, and suddenly… bad things are happening. It’s a heady rush, seeing her tormentors get what they deserve, but things that seem too good to be true usually are, and soon, the pranks and payback turns from delicious to deadly. Edie is alone in a world teeming with secrets and fiends lurking in the shadows. In this murky morass of devil’s bargains, she isn’t sure who—or what–she can trust. Not even her own mind…
Something about this book’s cover is extremely intriguing to me. It’s simple, but creepy and captivating, which ties in well with the synopsis. I’m excited to see how this story pans out and hope it lives up to the awesome description.
What book are you Waiting on Wednesday for? Let me know! I’m always on the lookout for great new books to read.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event highlighting exciting upcoming releases. It is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.
For this week’s Trailer Tuesday, I’m kicking it old school. Okay, not really old school. This week i’m throwing it a few years back with the trailer for the final book in one my favorite series: Sweet Far Thing by Libba Bray, the last book in the Gemma Doyle series. It’s been 6 years since this book’s release and I’m still not over some of the things Libba Bray did that book (re:KARTIK!)
While this book trailer does not fully capture the awesomeness that is this series, it definitely stirred up my desire to reread the entire thing. If you’ve never read the Gemma Doyle series, I suggest you check it out ASAP.
