My Favourite Book Trailers

Book trailers are an expected and non-event event in the book world now, but I remember when they first started to appear. It was strange and exciting and most of us were pretty unsure about them. Then the truly excellent ones started to filter through and we all started to change our minds, but now, I barely notice them when a new one appears and that’s just Not Good. I decided to put all of my favourite ones together in a post to highlight the insane hard work and talent that goes into them instead!

Forever by Maggie Stiefvater
Written, drawn, animated, composed and performed by the unbelievably talented lady herself. She can do everything this woman. Everything is this trailer encapsulates the book perfectly and it gives me goosebumps. Gorgeous.

Torment by Lauren Kate
Short, sweet and full of punch, this makes me want to go back to this series and revisit these fierce characters in such an intense relationship.

The Moon and More by Sarah Dessen
If you know me even a little bit, then this won’t come as a surprise. Watching this trailer gives me a happy heart and I feel like I’ve been thrown right into Colby. If only I was...

The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater
I know, I know, but really, Maggie Steifvater takes the crown of book trailers. As with Shiver, everything was done by Maggie and this one I think is just as good, maybe better in some ways. She blows my mind.

You might as well watch the ones for Shiver and Linger as well while you’re here. They’re all fantastic.

What’s your favourite book trailer? Any you think I should see?

  1. I love Maggie'e trailers. That woman is far to talented writer, composer, musician and artist.


Leave a message, I'd love to hear from you!
