Book Trailer Thursday:11/22/63
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

On the day before the fiftieth anniversary of the John F. Kennedy assassination, today’s book trailer borrows from the past–two years ago, to be precise–to feature Stephen King’s time-traveling novel of the event, 11/22/63. There’s no shortage of promo material online for readers who might have missed the lauded bestseller in 2011, or those who […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Liliane’s Balcony
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Liliane’s Balcony, a part-prose, part-poetry novella of the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed home Fallingwater, is the subject of this week’s book trailer. Reviewer Katharine Fronk writes that author Parker “sculpts and controls myriad, nearly unwieldy elements to construct a driven plot that illuminates the perched house and those who live within it.” Pills, chills, and a […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Fosse
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

At over 700 pages, Sam Wasson’s new biography Fosse, our reviewer David Pitt writes, “feels like it ends too soon.” The book’s trailer confirms that Pitt is to be taken at his word. It seems woefully truncated at a whopping–in BTT land–5:33, and makes me wish for a feature-length film of Wasson acting as himself […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Chain Saw Confidential
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

It’s hard to beat this trailer’s own opening line in order to intro it, so I won’t try. In lieu of a Booklist review, I have some “chainsaw shenanigans” to share with you on this dark and stormy Halloween. That sounds almost cute, doesn’t it? More trick-or-treating advice from BTT.

Book Trailer Thursday: Afterlife with Archie
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Book Trailer Thursday this October has gone a little like this: scary, scary, franco (thanks, C!). In other words, all horror all the time. And this week, I will not back down! But I will give you animated scary, in the form of this trailer for the new graphic novel Afterlife with Archie. This ain’t […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Actors Anonymous
Posted by: Courtney Jones

While a certain beloved Book Trailer Thursday curator is off getting hitched, I’ve gladly stepped in to provide this important public service announcement: As of Tuesday, October 15th, the actor James Franco unleashed another book onto the world. Donna Seaman penned some gracious words about Actors Anonymous in the Sept. 1 issue of Booklist: “The […]

Book Trailer Thursday: All Our Yesterdays
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Cristin Terrell’s YA debut All Our Yesterdays asks the question, “If you could go back and kill someone before he or she grew up to do terrible things, would you? What if that person was someone you cared for?” Rough questions, rough book trailer:

Book Trailer Thursday: The Heavens Rise
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Even in October, books can be good for more than just covering one’s eyes during the scariest moments of the #31horrorfilms31days challenge. Example: Christopher Rice’s The Heavens Rise. Judging by the Booklist review, this one might be better off read, and something a little less, “creepy, chilling, and almost impossible to put down,” used as […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Jim Henson
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Looking to get lost in a YouTube spiral today? Start here, with the sweet little trailer for Brian Jay Jones’s stellar new biography of a man who changed imaginations forever, Jim Henson. When you’re done, just try not to get sucked into one of the related videos. For starters, there’s this gem from 1969, this […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Battling Boy
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

In his starred review of Battling Boy in the September 15 issue of Booklist, Jesse Karp writes: “Comics’ sci-fi rock-god Pope synthesizes the mythologies of Superman, Batman, and Hercules and sends them crashing into a monster-infested dystopia in this rollicking blast of adventure, the first part of a larger tale.” Are you listening yet? Now, […]
