Book Trailers Are Just as Good As Movie Trailers

August 17, 2010

I love movie trailers. In fact, sometimes I’m more excited to see them than the actual movie I paid a ridiculous amount of money to see.

But what else do I love? Book trailers.

A well-made book trailer can evoke the same anticipation as reading the book’s synopsis and make readers even more interested/excited to read the book. I love the trailers that use actors to portray the characters, especially if they look exactly how I pictured the characters would. So, to spread some trailer love, here are a few new trailers that I found and a couple of my favorites. Enjoy!

Mercy by Rebecca Lim (HarperCollins, Oct. 2010):

Halo by Alexandra Adornetto (Macmillan, Sept. 2010):

Paranormalcy by Kiersten White (HarperTeen, Aug. 2010):

Firelight by Sophie Jordan (HarperTeen, Sept. 2010):

More trailers to come!

    I love going to the cinema to see trailers. It’s just so exciting!

    Book trailers are something that I had no idea about until I started blogging. I think the first one I saw was for ‘Before I Fall.’ I love watching them.

    Some of them are really good. They inform me about a book I might not know anything about or hadn’t had much of an idea about before and capture my attention, making me eager to read the novel.

    Every Thursday I pick out a book trailer to feature on the Quill Cafe blog and think about what its positive aspects are and whether or not it really makes me want to read the book.

    Book trailers are such a brilliant medium and I hope one day I can have one of my novels published that has a book trailer to go alongside it.

    Thanks so much for sharing these trailers! The last three novels I know of but I hadn’t seen the trailers for any of them before.
