Hour 11: Book Trailer Mini-Challenge

Edited: Winners are 1. Jessica B of Books a True Story 2. Michelle of True Book Addict. Thanks to everyone for playing!

Wow! Can you believe we are almost to the halfway point? The read-a-thon sure does fly by. It feels like we just started. Sad face.

But! We have more fun, challenges, and reading to look forward to for the next twelve hours so let’s get to it.

For this mini-challenge, take a short break and share a book trailer with us. It could be your favorite book trailer, it can be a trailer of your favorite book, or it can be a trailer for a book you want to read. The possibilities are many. To play, leave a comment with the link to your blog post featuring the trailer or a link to the trailer itself.

This challenge starts at 3pm PST and ends at 6pm PST (hour 11 to hour 14).Β  Two prizes will be given. One: winner’s choice of book from trailer featured by participants during this challenge and two: a journals are greater than blogs bookmark.

I’ll start by sharing a trailer that was shared the most by participants during the April 2011 version of this mini-challenge.

  3. Sarah says:

    Amazing book, and one of the coolest trailers I’ve seen: Forbidden by Ted Dekker and Tosca Lee!

  4. Donna says:

    I love this book series ❀

  5. I loved the Death Cure trailer!

  6. Marquetta says:

    Scandalous Desires by Elizabeth Hoyt. This literally made me LOL’d. I love how it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

  7. kattibrie says:

    Nice challenge! πŸ™‚

    Well, that’s a book I (and all the other fans) have been waiting for for years. So I think it deserves this trailer. Haven’t read it yet, though. Waiting the paperback release, cause all my other parts of the series are paperback πŸ˜‰

  8. Denise says:

    Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter! lol

  9. Sorry, the embed didn’t work. I’ll just leave the link this time:

    Here is mine – Crossed by Ally Condie which I can’t wait for!

  11. Oh, this is definitely an easy one for me – you can see a trailer for a book that I loved at this link below:


    The trailer for Forever by Maggie Stiefvater is so beautiful ❀

  12. Roof Beam Reader says:

    My favorite book trailer is definitely for The Boy with the Cuckoo-Clock Heart by Mathias Malzieu. The song is in French, but I think a translation would ruin the ambience anyway. Hope you all like it too! The book was also unique and delightful – in a bizarre, steampunkery way.

    Here’s my pick for Book Trailer for this 11th hour πŸ™‚

  18. Li says:

    This is hands down my favourite book trailer of all time – Mudbound by Hillary Jordan. There’s just this lovely narrative quality I love to it, with a vivid, memorable narrator and haunting music.

  19. Here is my post! I honestly LOVED the creepiness of the book trailer I chose!

  47. stilettostorytime says:

    A must watch!! I absolutely adored the trailer for “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”. It was so well done it was almost like a professional movie trailer and best of all it made you want to read the book so badly! The book is also a must read!

    Great Mini-Challenge! Happy Read-a-thon!

  48. Shirin says:

    Shades of Milk and Honey is on my TBR list, I’m in the reservation queue in my library. I also really love the aesthetics of the trailer with the silhouette shapes.

  50. I couldn’t find the trailer on youtube, which is the only way I know to display videos, so please click on the link!
    Coraline by Neil Gaiman (click link to see trailer)

    I love Neil Gaiman, and here he discusses “the fear of buttons” and how it relates to his book Coraline. I actually know someone who is afraid of buttons.
