Book Trailers: Take 2

It's no secret that we love book trailers. We put up a list of our favorites in June, and since then we've developed a Pinterest board dedicated to them, and watched countless ones in our daily newsletters from Shelf Awareness. In fact, we've come across so many new trailers that we decided we pretty much had to post a followup list. So what follows are some of our new favorites, but undoubtedly, the list will continue to grow.

The Fault in Our Stars by John Green

If you haven't read this book yet, you must go and buy it today. It's great. And the book trailer doesn't disappoint either. The split screen and music made me fall in love with this trailer just as much as the book.
The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente

The illustrations for both of her books (see next trailer) are beautiful and simply amazing. They are somewhat reminiscent of Brian Selznick, who we featured in our first list of trailers. The song is pretty great too.

The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne M. Valente

Second trailer=just as amazing.
Blameless by Gail Carriger

I'll admit that I hadn't heard about this book until I saw the trailer. But it provides such an interesting view into the making of a book cover, that I'll definitely check it out.
K is for Knifeball: An Alphabet of Terrible Advice by Jory John and Avery Monsen

Another stop-action film showing the process behind the production.

Alice in Wonderland: With Artwork by Yayoi Kusama

I'm a sucker for anything with Alice in Wonderland, so I didn't need much convincing to watch this trailer. The artwork is whimsical yet updated, and the trailer shows that off.

Well that's all for this edition of book trailers. If you come across any that you love, make sure to share!
