Image of the cover of The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman.They have book trailers on youtube.com now.  Like movie trailers, but for books. . . it’s pretty awesome.  I would watch them all if I had time.  Sadly, I don’t, but here are a few that I’ve liked:

Of the two books by Cynthia Leitich Smith, I liked Tantalize better, but I like the trailer for Eternal.

Quite possibly the funniest fan made trailer I’ve seen yet is this one for Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame Smith.

The Graveyard Book, by Neil Gaiman.  The last line in the video is “How actually great it is to be alive,” which was not what I heard the first time I watched it.  So I thought I’d save you the confusion. 😉

This trailer for Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters is a bit violent, and yet somehow hilarious.  Or maybe I’m just twisted?

Leviathan, but Scott Westerfeld.  This isn’t the best trailer, but the artwork you see is actually from the book, which is an old fashioned illustrated novel!  Westerfeld said that even adult books used to be illustrated, and he wanted to reach back to that to help create that old fashioned steam punk feel.

Hush, Hush by Becca Fitzpatrick.

Night World by L. J. Smith.

If I Stay by Gayle Forman

And the most awesome of all the awesome?  This one:

Night of the Living Trekkies, by Kevin David Anderson and Sam Stall.
