Book Trailers! WHAT?

Ok, so I just recently discovered that book trailers are a real thing! As in, theres a trailer video for the book same way there is a trailer for a movie. The only difference is that to find out the full story you have to read rather than watch. I know. Crazy, right?

This is a breakthrough in the world of literature.

I don't know about the rest of you guys but I love watching trailers, for movies, music videos, tv shows, etc. It's kind of a hobby (I know, it's wierd... but whatever). The bonus to having a trailer for a book is that you get a visual to what the characters look like and what certain scenes look like! It's almost as exciting as finding out that one of your favorite books is being made into a movie. Almost. Not quite there because obviously a trailer is limited, but something is definitely better than nothing.

In case you aren't sold on this idea, I present the trailer for Rules of Attraction by Simone Elkeles. This is official.

And, Chain Reaction by Simone Elkeles.

Need I say more? I think not.


  1. I like movie trailers, but always seem to avoid a lot of book trailers. I think it's because they'll make me that much more excited to read the book (like they're supposed to, lol)and I have zero patience. But I do love seeing how the characters look and what key points of the book they show.

  2. Oh gosh! I would be a nerd and look up book trailers. And I would look at random movie trailers. Totally agree! Its great that I'm not alone! :)
