Book Trailer Thursday (1)
So, to be completely honest, I have never heard of a "book trailer." This probably illustrates just how amateur I am to the book-blogging world :) Well, I am kind of intrigued by this, so here is Thursday's book meme, hosted by The Quill Cafe...
To participate, on a Thursday you post an entry in your blog with an embedded book trailer of your choice (note: the trailer can be fan made but please no movie trailers of book adaptations) with your thoughts and comments underneath. It can be a book you have read, want to read or have never even come across before.
I have never come across this book before. But I definitely remember the author: AVI. As I've already mentioned, I haven't been reading YA fiction for very long, so I don't know if readers out there know of Avi, or if Avi is even considered to be YA, but the minute I saw that name, I all-of-sudden remembered that here was a great author. Years (and years and years) ago, I read a book called The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle (I was probably 11-12 years old) and you know how you can remember exactly the words and exactly how you felt from a book you read years ago??
OK, well, I even remember a line from the book-- when one of the pirate-sailors takes Charlotte's hands and turns them palms-up and says, "Like bloody cream!" I honestly don't know why I remember that line but it is seared into my memory...
(Or.... does Windcatcher ring a bell for anyone?? Hmmm, I am probably just really old haha)
Whether you've heard of Avi or not, I stumbled upon this book trailer... (Warning: it is pretty cheesy, but at the same time it is REALLY freaking creepy) for an Avi book called The Seer of Shadows. I love the cover and the plot, and I remember that long ago when I was still in middle school back in like, 1995, I loved Avi. I will have to see if I can find this book somwhere! :)
