Book Trailer Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted by me, Anastasia. It’s very simple to play along: find a particularly awesome book trailer, embed it in a post, then proceed to coo all over it. Or, y’know, talk about whatever you want to talk about. Why did this book trailer catch your eye? Why do you want to share it with people? Did it make you want to read the book? Why was it effective (or not)?
I’m cheating a bit, I think, because this video isn’t like the other trailers I’ve posted before. However, it does have “trailer” in the title and! So! I think it counts.
What I like about this trailer: It’s got the author talking about his books and it’s actually stuff you want to know. It’s got (decently acted) live-action stuff interspersed with illustrations from the books. The music is a perfect fit. And it makes me want to read the books!
I can’t help but feel that it’s a bit slap-dash, but you can really tell they tried to make it good. And I approve of effort!
