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.
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.
First off, I want to apologize for the lack of posts this week. It’s been a busy week for me, so I haven’t really had time to sit down and write. ANY WAYS, back to this post. So this week on Trailer Tuesday, I have the trailer for Conversion by Katherine Howe, which came out today! (Yay!)
(Goddess War #2)
I have been dying to read this book for ages! I loved Antigoddes, the first book in the series. I think it’s a great retelling of the Greek myths and I cannot wait to see what happens next. Kendare Blake writing is fantastic and I know she won’t disappoint in this sequel. I’ll be counting down the days to September 1st.
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.
This week’s Trailer Tuesday is featuring The Merciless by Danielle Vega. I haven’t read this book yet, but based on the description and this awesome trailer, I definitely want to pick it up. I love how eerie this trailer is. I cannot wait to pick up this book to see how well it fits its trailer.
Have you guys seen any book trailers you loved this week? Let me know in the comments!
So, I don’t know if this a thing or not already, but its something I want to do on my blog. Each Tuesday, I want to share a different book trailer with you guys. A surprising number of books get trailers, and I’m always interested to see what the trailer adds to make me want to read a book. I’ve definitely been swayed to read a book based on its trailer.
To kick things off, I’m going to share the book trailer for Pawn by Aimée Carter, as that’s a book I recently just read and reviewed. This trailer doesn’t really add more to the synopsis, but I like that it introduces the society of the world Kitty lives in. I really love the graphic at the end that reveals the book introduction, I think that’s very cool.
This is a trailer I didn’t see before I read the book, but I feel like if I had seen it, I would have picked up Pawn earlier.
What do you think of this trailer?
Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone—one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship—tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn’t do something soon, her parents will be next.Now, Amy must race to unlock Godspeed’s hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there’s only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
