There She Goes

There she goes again. With her fantabulous, freaking book trailers. And I'm not even a fan of the format myself. I generally find them the height of cheese, though I realize I'm not likely the target audience. Still. If I'd never read her books or heard her name, I would want to read both Shiver and Ballad based on these awesomely beautiful trailers Maggie Stiefvater made herself. Wouldn't you?
For a behind-the-scenes peek into the making of the Shiver trailer, go here. Amazing. Maggie also has contests going on to win both books. So be sure to check those out here.

  1. I was already a fan of the Shiver trailer, but this was my first time seeing the Ballad trailer. The music, the drawings ... I loved it! Having read the book already, I think it's perfect. Thanks for posting.

    Those are the coolest, most original book trailers I've ever seen!

  5. I know! She's frighteningly talented in all areas of art. We're constantly posting her latest marvels on our blog too. Where does she find the time?

  6. Holly, I know! It does seem perfect once you've read it, doesn't it?

    Juju, you will not be disappointed. Promise.

    Dannie, yeah, I've read a couple not enthralled reviews. I happen to be a big fan and think her writing is lovely but to each her own. The trailers definitely rock.

    Just Blinded, my thoughts exactly!

    Donna, I have absolutely no idea. I checked out your blog, btw, and what a fun place it is!

  7. So sweet! And she composed the music too.

    I see you're on Team Gale--I guess you must have read Catching Fire already. I havent (threeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogothreeweekstogo) so I'm reserving my judgement...but I found the romance subplot in The Hunger Games to be a little weak compared to the rest of the fabulous fabulous plot. But I thought Gale was kinda cool :)

  9. I followed your links to Maggie's blogs yesterday and got all kinds of distracted there... and never said thanks to you, Angie, for pointing me in the right direction. So thanks. : )

  10. Rhiannon, I know! I love that she composed the music as well.

    My review of CATCHING FIRE will be coming soon and, yes, I am a Gale fan. I agree that the romance was not the focus in the first book and will be interested to hear what you think of that angle after reading book 2.

    Maggie, how could I not? They're made of awesome!

    Christine, you are so welcome. It's a fun place, isn't it? :)

Linger by Maggie Stiefvater, Review + Giveaway!

It seems a long time ago now that I first read Shiver -- the first book in the Wolves of Mercy Falls trilogy. But looking back I started it on the plane ride to BEA and finished it there in the conference center, fingers gripping the cover tightly, while sitting on the floor in one of the many autograph lines. And now it's May again and BEA is right around the corner and I emerge from my recent and nasty reading slump stupor to find a copy of Linger sitting in my mailbox like a glove thrown down in the dirt. "I will be the one to pull you out," it whispers to me slyly. "Just open me up and take a sip. I promise--one sip is all it will take." And I look at it with fear and longing written all over my face. "You promise?" I ask  intently. "Because it's been a long walk in the cold and I'm not sure I can take another disappointment." "Just open me up," it says, confidence written all over its cover. And so I do. And everythin

Interview with Alexandra Bracken + Brightly Woven Giveaway!

I fell in love with the cover of Alexandra Bracken 's debut novel-- Brightly Woven --last fall and the scant synopses I could find at the time certainly piqued my interest. After managing to get my hands on an ARC, I found myself surprised and pleased with this unique fantasy. You can read my review here . As the release date approached, I invited Alex to participate in an interview and giveaway here on the site and, despite her crazy busy schedule, she kindly accepted. Enjoy! First things first: When did the idea for Brightly Woven first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? I remember the exact moment it hit me—what I was doing, who I was talking to, what song was playing on iTunes.  :)  I had just come back from Winter Break my sophomore year in college and was sitting on my bed chatting with my mom.  Sophomore year was pretty remarkable in terms of the insane weather that we had in Virginia (where I was in school) but it had also been a bizarre year in

Interview with Diana Peterfreund + Rampant Giveaway!

Ever since I fell in love with Diana Peterfreund 's Secret Society Girl series last year, I've been hoping I'd get the chance to interview her here. Tomorrow marks the release of her new novel, Rampant , and let me tell you that you have not read a book like this before. You can read my review here , but all you really need to know is that it's a story about killer unicorns and the young women who hunt them. You want to read it now, don't you? Oh, yeah, and it's YA and the first in a series! To celebrate the release, Diana graciously answered a few of my most burning questions. As she is always a delight, I know you'll enjoy them as much as I did. First things first: When did the idea for Rampant first hit you and what (if anything) did you know right off the bat? In early 2005, just after selling Secret Society Girl , I had this dream of being chased by a very dangerous unicorn. I woke up and went to go look it up to see if I could figure out the meani
