Book Trailer Thursday #37 - The Blessed and UnWholly

Book Trailer Thursday is a feature inspired by Once Upon a TwilightWe 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! Make sure to post a comment below and let us know what you've found out there this week!

This week’s trailers:

The Blessed 
(The Blessed, Book 1)
Author: Tonya Hurley
Release Date: September 25, 2012
Published by: Simon & Schuster for Young Readers

What if martyrs and saints lived among us? And what if you were told you were one of them?
Meet Agnes, Cecilia and Lucy. Three lost girls, each searching for something. But what they find is beyond belief. (Summary from Goodreads)

We got to meet Tonya at a YA Lit Conference last weekend and I absolutely adored her! This trailer is UBER CREEPY!! I can't wait to read it, but perhaps in broad daylight only! 


UnWholly  
(Unwind Trilogy, Book 2)

Author: Neal Shusterman 
Release Date: August 28, 2012
Published by: Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers

Thanks to Conner, Lev, and Risa--and their high-profile revolt at Happy Jack Harvest Camp--people can no longer turn a blind eye to unwinding. Ridding society of troublesome teens while simultaneously providing much-needed tissues for transplant might be convenient, but its morality has finally been brought into question. However, unwinding has become big business, and there are powerful political and corporate interests that want to see it not only continue, but also expand to the unwinding of prisoners and the impoverished.
Cam is a product of unwinding; made entirely out of the parts of other unwinds, he is teen who does not technically exist. A futuristic Frankenstein, Cam struggles with a search for identity and meaning and wonders if a rewound being can have a soul. And when the actions of a sadistic bounty hunter cause Cam's fate to become inextricably bound with the fates of Conner, Risa and Lev, he'll have to question humanity itself. (Summary from Goodreads)

Unwind was a creepy concept book and now this sequel, UnWholly, looks good too!

What's your favorite book trailer of the week?
