Book Trailer Thursday: The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

That’s pretty much all I know about him, though I’d certainly like to learn more. Here he is talking to author Mira Jacob about her debut novel The Sleepwalker’s Guide to Dancing (Random).

Book Trailer Thursday: I Am Having So Much Fun Here without You
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

According to Booklist reviewer Kate Soto, Courtney Maum’s debut I Am Having So Much Fun Here without You (Touchstone) “deftly captures a thirtysomething’s sense of grief for the lost passion of youth.” The book’s trailer strikes me as capturing that very same mood; what do you think? Watch and decide.

Book Trailer Thursday: The Three
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Booklist reviewer David Pitt calls horror thriller The Three (Little, Brown) a “very creepy, very effective novel,” displaying the author’s stroke-of-genius use of an oral-history format to tell the story of The Three: the mysterious, only survivors of four simultaneous worldwide plane crashes. Tune in next week for the last remaining #mysterymonth BTT!
