Book Trailer Thursday: I Don’t Know What You Know Me From: Confessions of a Co-Star
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Do you know where you’ve seen (or in some cases, heard) Judy Greer before? Well, she doesnt, and she wrote a book about it. In the Booklist review of I Don’t Know What You Know Me From (Doubleday), Kristine Huntley writes, “Greer’s bubbly best-friend personality and self-deprecating anecdotes will have readers rooting for her, and […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Hugo Marston series
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Here’s something a little different: one trailer for a whole series. Watch Mark Pryor very very seriously discuss, in finely accented English, his very very serious methods for trailering his Hugo Marston series (The Bookseller, The Crypt Thief, and this year’s The Blood Promise, from Prometheus/Seventh Street). “I even went to the trouble of sacrificing […]

Book Trailer Thursday: The Signature of All Things
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Elizabeth Gilbert’s The Signature of All Things (Viking) is the third Carnegie-longlist title to be featured on BTT. Joanne Wilkinson writes, “Gilbert, in supreme command of her material, effortlessly invokes the questing spirit of the nineteenth century, when amateur explorers, naturalists, and enthusiasts were making major contributions to progress. Beautifully written and imbued with a […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Hope Is a Ferris Wheel
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The Booklist review of Robin Herrera’s Hope Is a Ferris Wheel (Abrams/Amulet) touts the debut novel’s delightful narrator and “unique supporting cast.” Here they are adorably animated in the book’s trailer, which features BTT’s first trailer (home) within a trailer (book). Girl with blue hair starts a school book club and finds solace and solidary […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Dancing with Cats
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

This April, Chronicle will release a 15th anniversary reissue of Dancing with Cats by Burton Silver and Heather Busch (1999), which promises to keep “all the mystery and magic of cat dancing delightfully intact,” according to the book’s press release. The book’s copyright page acknowledges that, “Neither the publisher, author, nor photographer accept any responsibility […]

Book Trailer Thursday: The Boys in the Boat
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

Turn on your TV and flip to NBC. Now, dial it back 77 years, six months and a few days. Set the antennae about 60 degrees to the… What, your TV doesn’t do that? Did you try kicking the side of it? Switching off then on again? You should probably get that fixed, but luckily […]

Book Trailer Thursday: Romance Is My Day Job
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

In the spirit of wholeheartedly embracing that equally loved and loathed mid-February holiday arriving on our doorsteps tomorrow, BTT turns to–who else?–a Romance editor for some wisdom this week. Harlequin editor Patience Bloom shares her real-life love story via the well-known characters and plots of classic romances in Romance Is My Day Job (Dutton). (Dangerous […]

Book Trailer Thursday: A Tale for the Time Being
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

The 2014 Andrew Carnegie Medals for Excellence in Fiction and Nonfiction longlist titles were announced yesterday! While we wait to see which six books make the shortlist before two winners are announced in Las Vegas this June, I plan to periodically feature trailers for these exciting titles on BTT. Which brings me to Ruth Ozeki’s […]

Book Trailer Thursday: One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories
Posted by: Courtney Jones

I’m abandoning my tireless coverage of James Franco’s frightening march toward world domination to alert you, dear reader, to this triumphant release by a different funny person we like a little more. B.J. Novak writer/ actor of TV’s “The Office” and BTT curator favorite “The Mindy Project”, has released a delightful, clever trailer featuring fellow […]

Book Trailer Thursday: A Street Cat Named Bob
Posted by: Annie Bostrom

It’s not news that Bob, the ginger (“orange,” in American) heart-stealing, life-changing cat has sat cozily curled on best-seller lists near and far for some time. (He stole Brad Hooper’s heart, for one, back in April.) It is news, however, that over the pond they’ve been enjoying The World According to Bob, which picks up […]
