Liesl and Po

Liesl & Po Book Trailer

Liesl & Po has finally been released here, and while I haven’t got­ten hold of a copy yet myself, (though I’m sure it wont be long before I do) I’ve heard some lovely things about it, in par­tic­u­lar the artwork.

As you know, I love a book with art­work and if this trailer is any­thing to go by, the book itself is going to be just as beau­ti­ful to own. Im a big fan of Before I Die by Lau­ren Oliver and enjoyed Delir­ium, so I can’t wait to read this. I find her writ­ing to be quite lyri­cal and this trailer seems to reflect that, with some gor­geous, tra­di­tional ani­ma­tion and music that has a soft, haunt­ing qual­ity to it. Liesl & Po looks to be a great, heart­warm­ing children’s adventure.

Book Trailer: The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross

Steam­punk!!! Steam­punk is fast becom­ing a favourite genre of mine — and I caught the trailer for this the other day! For some rea­son I wasn’t aware The Girl in the Steel Corset was steam­punk, I’d barely glanced at the cover before and fig­ured it was another para­nor­mal romance which just didn’t inter­est me, but now I’ve seen this fan­tas­tic trailer and read some reviews I can­not wait to get my hands on it! I love com­ing across stun­ning trail­ers like this as there are very few I actu­ally like! Enjoy!

The Girl in the Steel Corset is a rel­a­tively new book — released in May this year. Check out the syn­op­sis from Goodreads:

‘In 1897 Eng­land, sixteen-year-old Fin­ley Jayne has no one except the thing inside her.  When a young lord tries to take advan­tage of Fin­ley, she fights back. And wins. But no nor­mal Vic­to­rian girl has a darker side that makes her capa­ble of knock­ing out a full-grown man with one punch.  Only Grif­fin King sees the mag­i­cal dark­ness inside her that says she’s spe­cial, says she’s one of them. The orphaned duke takes her in from the gaslit streets against the wishes of his band of mis­fits. Emily, who has her own spe­cial abil­i­ties and an unre­quited love for Sam, who is part robot; and Jasper, an Amer­i­can cow­boy with a shad­owy secret. 
Griffin’s inves­ti­gat­ing a crim­i­nal called The Machin­ist, the mas­ter­mind behind sev­eral recent crimes by automa­tons. Fin­ley thinks she can help and finally be a part of some­thing, finally fit in.  But The Machin­ist wants to tear Griff’s lit­tle com­pany of strays apart, and it isn’t long before trust is tested on all sides. At least Fin­ley knows whose side she’s on, even if it seems no one believes her.’

Book Trailer: Passion by Lauren Kate

I know this book has been eagerly awaited by many Lau­ren Kate fans — being the third novel in the pop­u­lar Fallen series — so I thought I’d post up the trailer for you guys to take a look at. I’m not such a fan of the visu­als but I LOVE the music — I think it cap­tures the atmos­phere of the series perfectly.

Pas­sion came out yes­ter­day, but won’t be released in the UK until the 23rd June — another 8 days.

’”Every sin­gle life­time, I’ll choose you. Just as you have cho­sen me. Forever.” 

Luce would die for Daniel. And she has. Over and over again. Through­out time, Luce and Daniel have found each other, only to be painfully torn apart: Luce dead, Daniel left bro­ken and alone. But per­haps it doesn’t need to be that way.

Luce is cer­tain that something—or someone—in a past life can help her in her present one. So she begins the most impor­tant jour­ney of this life­time … going back eter­ni­ties to wit­ness first­hand her romances with Daniel … and finally unlock the key to mak­ing their love last. 

Cam and the legions of angels and Out­casts are des­per­ate to catch Luce, but none are as fran­tic as Daniel. He chases Luce through their shared pasts, ter­ri­fied of what might hap­pen if she rewrites history. 

Because their romance for the ages could go up in flames … forever. ’

Keep an eye out on the blog for my first give­away — a copy of Pas­sion that I’ll be post­ing up in the next few days!

Book Trailer: Forever by Maggie Stiefvater

This week I want to share the delight­ful lit­tle trailer for the final book For­ever in Mag­gie Stief­vater pop­u­lar Wolves of Mercy Falls tril­ogy — due for release on July 13th 2011:

Isn’t it lovely? The whole ani­ma­tion, includ­ing the music, was cre­ated by the tal­ented Mag­gie Stief­vater her­self, using good old stop motion, some paper, patience, imag­i­na­tion, and I sus­pect, a lit­tle sprin­kling of magic for good measure!

‘In Mag­gie Stiefvater’s ‘Shiver’, Grace and Sam found each other. In ‘Linger’, they fought to be together. Now, in ‘For­ever’, the stakes are even higher than before. Wolves are being hunted. Lives are being threat­ened. And love is harder and harder to hold on to as death comes clos­ing in.’

It’s great to see such an artis­tic book trailer, sim­ple but very effec­tive with haunt­ingly beau­ti­ful music (which will be avail­able to pur­chase from Maggie’s web­site some­time soon). It gives me a great sense of what the book will be like — some sad moment’s are in store I think!

I’ll cer­tainly be pick­ing up a copy of For­ever once it hits the shops!

Book Trailer: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs

Here is the bril­liant book trailer for Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecu­liar Chil­dren by Ran­som Riggs, due out next week on June 7th:

It looks deli­ciously creepy !

For those who haven’t heard of this one, here is the descrip­tion of the book from Goodreads:

‘A mys­te­ri­ous island. An aban­doned orphan­age. And a strange col­lec­tion of very curi­ous pho­tographs. It all waits to be dis­cov­ered in Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecu­liar Chil­dren, an unfor­get­table novel that mixes fic­tion and pho­tog­ra­phy in a thrilling read­ing expe­ri­ence. As our story opens, a hor­rific fam­ily tragedy sets sixteen-year-old Jacob jour­ney­ing to a remote island off the coast of Wales, where he dis­cov­ers the crum­bling ruins of Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecu­liar Chil­dren. As Jacob explores its aban­doned bed­rooms and hall­ways, it becomes clear that the chil­dren who once lived here—one of whom was his own grandfather—were more than just pecu­liar. They may have been dan­ger­ous. They may have been quar­an­tined on a des­o­late island for good rea­son. And somehow—impossible though it seems—they may still be alive.

A spine-tingling fan­tasy illus­trated with haunt­ing vin­tage photography,Miss Peregrine’s Home for Pecu­liar Chil­dren will delight adults, teens, and any­one who rel­ishes an adven­ture in the shadows’

To say I’m excited about this one would be an under­state­ment! I love vin­tage pho­tog­ra­phy, and I’m look­ing for­ward to look­ing through these just as much as read­ing the story itself! I can­not wait to get my hands on a copy of the book once it’s out.
