This is a new feature on the blog in which I take a specific genre and feature the trailers for three young adult titles from that genre. I provide this with the hope that it will garner interest in titles you may not have otherwise checked out. At the very least, they are here to entertain!
Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
This week’s theme: Dystopian Novels
This was shared to me by the author herself. I appreciate the fact that she thought of us when passing it along the news wire. I had not yet seen this trailer, and when I watched it I was blown away by the quality. It’s almost as nice as the the physical book itself (which, if I may add, has the most amazing cover design of 2012!) Also, I loved the choice of voice over, which speaks from the point of view of those who conduct the personality test within the story. The overhead wildlife views of The Wheel receive bonus points from this reader.
CANDOR is a book recommended to me by Sarah with the YA Rebels. This book is about a “Stepford Wives” inspired future society controlled by subliminal messaging. The trailer below is an excellent way to introduce yourself to this standalone story. It consists of photo slides and text, and is fairly simple, but I love that it allows the reader to imagine what the characters would look like.
Ok, so who HASN’T read this book? (Well, me, actually. But that’s beside the point.) Does anyone even need a trailer to convince them to buy it? Probably not. I present this book trailer here simply because it is INSANELY AWESOME to the highest degree. If you haven’t seen the trailer, yet. Check it out below!
