I have compiled a list of my favorite book related vids. Keep in mind, that I am recommending the videos, not the actual books, since I haven't read most of them, anyway. I'm sure there are plenty more trailers, so send your recommendations my way and I will keep the lists coming.
This first video is of an almost classic book. The beginning is rather ambiguous, but the ending just grabs you. Hehe. I haven't actually read this book and I must say that I wasn't very interested until I saw this trailer.
But wait, theres more! Much more...
By the way, that was Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Ben H. Winters. Aaaand since we are on the issue of slaying classic history...
Here is a trailer for another book I haven't read, though I did buy it during a vampire-slayer-merchandise-induced-buying-coma. Yes, my eyes go all glassy and everything.
It is Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter by Seth Grahame-Smith.
Whether or not the books are any good (which is yet to be determined, for me, at least), these people are seriously good at making book trailers. Next up is Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Dawn of the Dreadfuls (Quirk Classics). By the way, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies is on sale for Kindle for 4.79, if you haven't taken a peek at it yet. I know I haven't gotten to it, yet.
And another, Night of the Living Trekkies (Quirk Fiction) by by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall:
Damn, these people are ca-razy. It makes me really excited for the future of book trailers and in result, the future of book movies. These people definitely raise the bar and make it so easy, then they laugh while everyone else tries to limbo under their super low bars.
The next one is an experiment in animation to match the stunning sketches inside the actual book of Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld.
Another animated trailer is up next for Tell Me a Secret by Holly Cupala. The animation and production is outstanding but the flicker effect makes me want to stab myself in the eye just to make it STOP.
Another super cute trailer for the book Just Like Heaven by Julia Quinn, which I'd never heard of and probably won't read, well because I would probably be bored. But that doesn't stop me from thinking this is adorable:
I had never heard of this one either, but, wow, now I feel like I NEED to read it. Then again, I wonder if there's a reason I hadn't heard of it.
The Hourglass Door (The Hourglass Door Trilogy) (Hourglass Door (Quality)) Series by Lisa Magnum.
Is it just me or does that sound like Jewel Staite (Kaylee from Firefly)?! And that guy! Where the hell do I know him from? Hottie.
On to Part Two!
