"It's a Book"

Like most of you, I am so looking forward to Simone Elkeles' upcoming Rules of Attraction. And I'm sure you've seen these before but I'm posting them here because they make me happy. And they make me laugh at work. Book trailers are a tough sell for me and, for books in the same series, these two seem to have been made on different planets. But I enjoyed them both in spite of myself. Mostly because I'm silly in love with Perfect Chemistry. And because the second one indicates it will be--wait for it--a trilogy. SCORE.

  4. So I love the "it's a book" trailer, and as much as I adored seeing a HOT Alex shirtless, I'm not as much in love with the ROA trailer because I feel like it's telling too much of the story. It's silly, but I guess I want to be as surprised as possible when I read it.

    and a trilogy? *contented sigh*

  6. Michelle, I know what you mean. The shirtlessness was excellent. But I did keep wondering if they were using all the good lines or something like that. Still, I love how involved her trailers are. Be they cheesy, dramatic, what have you.

    Alicia, I'm feeling the same urge myself...

  7. I decided to skip watching the trailer for Rules of Attraction, because I wasn't crazy about the one for Perfect Chemistry. Fortunately, I watched for the first time *after* reading the book last summer. I don't know why, but it just rubbed me the wrong way. But the book!!.... one of my absolute favorites for 2009.

    My teen recently asked me for her own copy of Perfect Chemistry for her next birthday since we both read the library's copy, and lucky for her, Rules of Attraction comes out *on* her birthday, so.... you know what she's getting!! :)

    Good news about the trilogy. I was excited to learn the upcoming book is about Alex's little brother. Can't wait.

  8. I haven't read the books yet, but I really want to! I loved both these trailers : the first one was very humoristic, and the second had more of a movie feel, although I thought it probably revealed too much of the story.

  9. Christine, I felt the same way actually. I had already read the book when the trailer became popular and I avoided watching it when I could tell how cheesy it was. But I watch it now for the "It's a book!" line. Hysterical. Though so not at all representative of the book.

    Your girl is going to be so thrilled to get them both for her birthday! Wonderful idea. I'm wondering about the third book. I'd still really like one about Isabel.

    Kay, I agree. Like Michelle said above, you don't want too much spoiled. But reading Ms. Elkeles' account of getting the second one made is rather delightful and so I enjoyed watching it just knowing how much went into it.

    No go read PERFECT CHEMISTRY! :)

Magic Bites Collector's Edition

It must be mine. Kate's braid makes me happy. It's so Kate. As does Slayer. And the fact that she just looks so much more like Kate in general than the girl on the original cover of Magic Bites . That little "Includes First Time in Print Bonus Material" teaser doesn't hurt either. Not one bit.
