Sharing Saturday Thirty

Saturday is here!  This is one of my favorite times of the week for I love this post.  Today we are going to do something a little different.  I am going to share book trailers for some of my favorite books and my opinions on whether they represent the book well.  This is going to be so fun.  I may start doing this more often during my Sharing Saturday’s so let me know what book trailers I should do.  Let’s get started!

Rebel of the Sands by Alwyn Hamilton:

The imagery is good.  It is blue and sandy much as the cover suggests it should be.  The blue-eyed bandit is decently portrayed but I think less time should have been spent on what authors and journals thought about the book and more on what the book is actually about.  The music is a wonderful addition adding drama and intrigue to the trailer.  I think overall that the book trailer decently portrayed the book but it did not show the true fire and spirit of the book.

Reawakened by Colleen Houck:

I think this trailer did a much better job of portraying the book than the previous one.  We are shown the magic of the world through the disappearing words and images and the book is thoroughly explained.  However, the music was horrible.  I did not think it went very well with the book.  I did like that certain images and creatures were shown that are seen throughout the book.  Overall, I think it did an excellent job of showing us Reawakened.

The Bone Witch by Rin Chupeco:

This trailer did a pretty good job of depicting the book.  The background was amazing and fully gave me a sense of the book.  However, I felt that what the book was about was not fully given.  Despite that, I love the little bit of music that was included which added drama and emotion at the perfect moments.  This trailer was suitable for the book but I think it could have been improved upon a little bit.

ReawakenedReawakened Quote Collection 7 - This took me some time as I couldn't find the font for Ahmose and Asten's chant, and therefore I did some photoshopping and color adjusting.
