Book Trailer Thursday #12 - Insurgent and Bitterblue


Book Trailer Thursday is a weekly meme feature inspired by Once Upon a Twilight.We are hoping to promote not only new books that are out or are soon to be out on the shelves, but to also promote the creation of book trailers themselves! 

This week’s trailers:

Insurgent 
(Divergent, Book 2)
Author: Veronica Roth
Release Date: May 1, 2012
Published by: HarperTeen
One choice can transform you-or it can destroy you. But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves-and herself-while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. 
Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in time of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable-and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so. (Summary from Goodreads)


(The Seven Kingdoms, Book 3)
Author: Kristin Cashore
Release Date: May 1, 2012
Published by: Dial
Eight years after Graceling, Bitterblue is now queen of Monsea. But the influence of her father, a violent psychopath with mind-altering abilities, lives on. Her advisors, who have run things since Leck died, believe in a forward-thinking plan: Pardon all who committed terrible acts under Leck's reign, and forget anything bad ever happened. But when Bitterblue begins sneaking outside the castle-disguised and alone-to walk the streets of her own city, she starts realizing that the kingdom has been under the thirty-five-year spell of a madman, and the only way to move forward is to revisit the past.
Two thieves, who only steal what has already been stolen, change her life forever. They hold a key to the truth of Leck's reign. And one of them, with an extreme skill called a Grace that he hasn't yet identified, holds a key to her heart. (Summary from Goodreads)

  1. Mine's not really a book trailer today so much as a book movie.
