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

  5. Lenore, true. I got all excited when she was the first thing on there. Really liked this trailer.

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

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

    Emily, yep. Astrid is very strong.

    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!

Review | A Curse So Dark and Lonely by Brigid Kemmerer

The first review of the year! Writing this one always feels fresh and hopeful to me and like it may set the tone of my reading year in a way. This was a very good one to start with. And the moral of this story appears to be: I will never tire of Beauty and the Beast retellings. A fact I was not unaware of, but that I am happy to have confirmed once more, this time after reading Brigid Kemmerer's A Curse So Dark and Lonely. My favorites tend to run the Robin McKinley way, with the most recent favorite retelling being Meagan Spooner's wonderful Hunted. But this is the first retelling of my favorite fairy tale that I've read that includes both traditional fantasy and modern contemporary settings. I didn't think it could work. Or, at least, I was skeptical that the one would interfere with the other or that the different dialogues might clash. How happy I was to find that the whole thing played out seamlessly. How happy I am to have discovered Brigid Kemmerer's writin…

Review | All the Crooked Saints by Maggie Stiefvater

I thought today would be the perfect day to review this unicorn of a book. It is All Saints' Day—a fitting day to revisit all the crooked ones, no? It is also the first day of November and so, today, . . . well, you know the rest. What I'm saying is, today is kind of the perfect day to do all the Maggie Stiefvater-related things! Which is, of course, why I'll be attending her signing event later this evening at my local indie, key in hand. I know. I win today. I do. What I do not do is take it for granted. My good fortune or this book. This beautiful, beautiful book. But before we get into my reaction, I want to make a brief request. If you haven't yet had a chance to read Maggie's post on how this book came about and what it was originally going to be and what it actually became, I straight up implore you to do so. It is one of my favorite things I've read this year and it is something I needed to read this year. My favorite line? "I discovered that I wa…

Angie's Best Books of 2018

It is the last day of the year. Are you with me? We made it this far. I think we'd better keep going. I always enjoy arriving at this final post of the year so much. I love seeing all of your lists and all of the books and words and hearts and monumental efforts that gave you life this year. That helped get you to this point. With me. I have felt rather keenly these last 365 days how in it together we are. How we have to be. And I am grateful for you. For each of you who leave comments and send recommendations and write and read and push forward into the darkness. I'm so grateful for you. 
And so here I leave my best books of the year. It's a whopping 28 titles, guys. Twenty. Eight. I haven't had a list that long in a handful of years at least. That is something to smile at. A record of a year well read, indeed.
