The Most Effective Book Trailer Ever.

So there's this book:

MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN. I'd seen it around. And even though it looked creeptastic, it didn't really grab me for whatever reason.

Then I read this review, which led me to this book trailer:

Then, after I saw it, I saw this "making of" book trailer:

In the past, there have been book trailers that convinced me to buy a book I was on the fence about--this is the first time that I found immediately went out to buy a book that I'd consciously decided not to buy previously.

And I did. I downloaded it onto my Kindle that second--but I can already tell that I want this one in print. Because scattered throughout the text? Creepy old vintage pictures that go along with the story. And the author? He found the photographs, before he wrote the book!

Oh, meant to add...yes, yes on having the book. The photos are _amazing_.

Wow. That was like a movie trailer. Holy cow. Makes me want to go out and grab the book! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, that IS creeptastic. Kind of like the Xmen wind up in an old insane asylum while on the run from the Church of Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials.

I am so unsettled by that trailer. Definitely need this one in print. Thanks!

Just added it to the list I gave my husband to get me tonight after work. And it's going straight on top of the TBR pile. Thanks so much for sharing this.

Kathryn Packer Roberts said...

Wow. This is right up my alley. I definitely will have to go get this one! Thanks for the videos.

Beth, this is amazing. I've seen the poster at my local indie (a place I've seen YOUR poster before), and last time I picked up an order, this book was actually with the book I'd requested! I said it wasn't mine, but maybe I should go back and claim it?

How satisfying to write something and then discover places that so perfectly speak to your creation.

I am so unsettled right now...and creeped out!!

And yeah, I will definitely read it.


Thanks for the heads-up!

What an awesome trailer! I have to read that book now.

Jemi Fraser said...

Loved those videos - also love the way he wove the images together. Fabulous!

Miriam Forster said... I must read the book.

Creeptastic indeed!

Litza said...

Oh! I LOVED this book! I was afraid it would give me nightmares or something (I'm quite impressionable lol) but I was still curious. It was so good! I hope you like it. And for the record, I didn't have any nightmares. :)

Kelly Bryson said...

Wow. That's amazing. Thanks for sharing- I hadn't seen this trailer. So much emotion- I have to read this book!

Casey McCormick said...

Holy heck. I must have this book!

Yikes, how have I missed this book? I love that trailer.

Anita Saxena said...

This sounds a bit too scary for me. I don't handle creeptastic well. But, I'll pass the word around to people that do.

I finished MISS PEREGRINE yesterday, and I still can't stop thinking about it. A friend of mine is an AP English teacher, and she wants to add it to her curriculum. I'm completely in awe of this book! The only word I can currently use to describe it is "brilliant."

Nicole Settle said...

Ooh. I had never even heard of this but it sounds wonderfully creepy.

Sarah said...

Now that's a book trailer! I was attracted to the cover of this book in a bookstore, but wasn't sure about it. Now I definitely want to get my hands on a copy . . .

Margo Rowder said...

Excellent post, Beth. It's amazing how inviting even a minute-long clip can be, when done well. I will definitely check out Miss Peregine's.
Thanks again for sharing!

I'm actually reading this book now and I LOVE IT!!!!
