Book Trailers, Oh My!

There’s this thing about me that I don’t disclose much on the intrawebs and that is: I love watching book trailers. Not because I think they’re wonderfully made or that they’re representative of the content, but because a lot of them are so awful I think it’s funny.

Take Boys That Bite by Mari Mancusi, a trailer so funnily awful that I would never touch the book ever. (SUNNY and RAYNE ahahahahahha)
Or Girl in the Arena by Lisa Haines, a trailer so hilariously wrong I felt the need to find a copy of it in my library. (not enough to actually check it out of the library, mind, but a lot better than the previous. And say what you want, but you'll remember the title after the trailer is over.)

*coughs* But I’m not here to inflict my collection of awful book trailers at you. Instead, I’ll be posting my top 5 book trailers I came across this year! In no particular order~

MOVIE-ESQUE SCARY TRAILER - The Maze Runner by James Dashner



THE COOL TEXT STUFF - Liar by Justine Larbalestier and The Van Alen Legacy by Melissa de la Cruz





PRETTY STILLS - Silver Phoenix by Cindy Pon



STILLS WITH AWESOME QUOTES READ ALOUD BY AWESOME SPEAKER - Mudbound by Hilary Jordan



(There's a nicer, longer trailer on BookSpots.Com, but I can't seem to link it no matter what I do, so I guess look for it yourself if you wanna see?)

So, what book trailers do you like watching? Or if you just feel like sharing those really awful-yet-hilarious trailers, I'm totally down with that. =D

Grrreat post, I love book trailers too! One of my favourites is Perfect Chemistry by Simone Elkeles: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr0OtYYpyek - It's just SO catchy! I haven't read the book and I'm not planning to either, but I love the trailer!
