Terrific Trailer Thursday

Thursday, August 19, 2010
Terrific Trailer Thursday is a (semi) weekly event similar to Waiting on Wednesday only with books and movie trailers.

This  first video is for the book Secrets of Eden by Leslie DuBois. I could not find anything additional information about the book, but based on the video I am quite interested in this book. It is due out this fall.

This next video grabbed me despite the fact that there is no music with it. The book Lunamorte by Samantha Young looks like my kind of book. The trouble is according to the author's website the book was released in July 30, but Amazon shows it as out of print.  I did find ordering information at Waterstones in the UK.

Next up is Firelight by Sophie Jordon which is due out in September. I have been watching this book make its appearance on Waiting on Wednesdays for quite some time and have it on pre-order. Once again my fascination for dragons has me salivating for this one.

Finally this next video is a fan based one for The Chronicles of Vladamir Tod a series by Heather Brewer. Her next book, Twelfth Grade Kills  is due out in September. I am a fan of this series and have been lucky enough to actually hang out with Auntie Heather on a couple of occasions during the Area-Wide Book Battle that I  co-founded and that my school hosts annually. Brewer graduated from the district I work for and always donates her time to come and sign books for the students who are participating in the book battle. Very cool art work! Love the music in this one too! If you have not read this series check out my review on the first three books and for Eleventh Grade Burns.

Hope I was able to whet your interest in some of these books. Let me know what you think.

Interesting, but the first trailer, despite the lack of music, totally got me! I would definitely want to read this book. I like books that put your moral stance to the test. Like here, you would never kill a person, you say, but then something happens that changes this. Just so cool. Thanks for sharing!

Definitely want to read Secrets of Eden and Firelight - although I have to admit that the Firelight trailer wasn't one of the best ones that I've seen.
