When you go to the movies or pop in a DVD do you skip the movie trailers or are you glued to the screen and making a mental list of what you MUST see next? What about book trailers–teaser clips made by readers or by publishers to introduce you to your next big read?
So, friends, please observe exhibit A: Below you will see an Amazon description for a brand new YA book coming out in a few weeks from Ann Aguirre and then you’ll see the trailer–looks like they put some time and money into it! YOU TELL US: Does the trailer make you wanna read the book? Or does it make you wish it were a movie already? Is it cool or is it cheese?
WELCOME TO THE APOCALYPSE In Deuce’s world, people earn the right to a name only if they survive their first fifteen years. By that point, each unnamed ‘brat’ has trained into one of three groups-Breeders, Builders, or Hunters, identifiable by the number of scars they bear on their arms. Deuce has wanted to be a Huntress for as long as she can remember.
As a Huntress, her purpose is clear–to brave the dangerous tunnels outside the enclave and bring back meat to feed the group while evading ferocious monsters known as Freaks. She’s worked toward this goal her whole life, and nothing’s going to stop her, not even a beautiful, brooding Hunter named Fade. When the mysterious boy becomes her partner, Deuce’s troubles are just beginning.
Now watch the book trailer….and tell us below what you think.
