Killer Unicorns Book Trailer

Diana Peterfreund has posted the Killer Unicorns book trailer and I had to re-post it here because it is totally worth a viewing. I love the idea of a series trailer, rather than one for just a single book. Also, how awesome is it to have the trailer actually narrated by the author herself? That way the viewer gets a much more direct insight into the vast array of thoughts and research (and blood, sweat, and tears) that went into the novel. I, for one, am much more likely to pick the book up having been made privy (and in such a stylish way) to all of that. Enjoy!

  2. Ooh! A book trailer dedicated to a series is a great idea--and it's even better with the actual author in there! I love when I get to see the person who actually WROTE the books, hah. This was a great trailer :D

    pirate, exactly. It just makes it so much more interesting and human.

    Violet, sweet. Glad you enjoyed it. Have you read RAMPANT?

    I've never heard of this series before, but since I'm about to go back to school and be bombarded with academia, I think I might have to raid the local library to find it. These look fantastic! Thanks for the post!

Retro Friday Review: Goodbye Pink Pig by C.S. Adler

Retro Fridayis a weekly meme hosted here at Angieville and focuses on reviewing books from the past. This can be an old favorite, an under-the-radar book you think deserves more attention, something woefully out of print, etc. Everyone is welcome to join in at any time! I include roundups from participating bloggers in my weekly post. You'll forgive me for indulging in what is essentially pure nostalgia this week and reviewing a book I hadn't thought of in years, but which had a profound impact on me as a young girl. I was remembering the school I attended in fifth grade the other night and mentally wandering the halls and rooms. I remembered the wonderful library it had and the kind librarian there who listened to me talk about how much I loved Lloyd Alexander and Susan Cooper and, smiling, led me over to wonderful, new authors such as Madeleine L'Engle. It was in this library that I was perusing one day when I came across Good-bye Pink Pigby C.S. Adler. I know. Can you be…

Update | Real Life

I felt like it might be worth writing a very brief real life update here. If just because it's occupied so much of my mental space recently. And, of course, because whatever is currently occupying large swaths of your mental space plays a not insignificant role in your reading life and which book you reach for at the end of any given day. So.

I have worked at the same job since four months after this blog began. Until a week ago, that is, when I packed up my bags and left to start a brand new job. I am having a difficult time wrapping my head around that bare fact. First and foremost, I am incredibly grateful and pleased to have this new job. It was time. In fact, all throughout my job search, that exquisite quote from the wonderful Mo Willems ran on repeat through my head,
If you ever find yourself in the wrong story, leave. The position I had served its purpose very well. It was what I and my family needed for that period in our lives. But at this new point in my life, it had b…
