Terrific Trailers Thursday

Thursday, July 8, 2010
Ever since I saw my first book trailer I have been fascinated by them. I am even planning on using this media next year as a way to have my students review books. Hopefully I will be able to post some of their trailers once the school year gets going.

Since these are amazing ways to interest readers in a book, I am going to start posting trailers I have found every Thursday. My first one is this week is for the book Poison Diaries by Mayrose Wood which is to be released this month, and I can't wait to read it.

Next up is Dark Divine by Bree Despain, who by the way is having a fab giveaway so go check it out.

Beastly by Alex Flinn is an urban retelling of Beauty and the Beast and has been made into a movie. I love this book and  the trailer and had to add this to my Terrific Trailer Thursday.

Another terrific movie trailer from a book is this one from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows man does this look like the best Harry Potter movie yet or what?

Finally, as I wait impatiently for Maria Snyder's third book in her Glass studies, Spy Glass, which will be out this September, I found a beautiful trailer of Storm Glass the first book in this triology and decided to include it. 

So have you found any terrific trailers? Love to see them!

I am slightly obsessed with Harry Potter, so seeing that trailer only made it harder to wait for the movie to come out. I was surprised that I liked the Beastly trailer so much, as I am not too much of a Beauty and the Beast fan. This is a great idea! I love it.
