Best Book Trailers of 2010

Book trailers have come a long way. The first time I saw a book trailer was in 2007 I think, and it wasn't much more than a bunch of pictures and some text. And while there's nothing wrong with that kind of trailer, they've also gotten lots more sophisticated over the last 3 years.

So my first 2010 wrap up is sharing with you (in no particular order) my top 10 book trailers of 2010. I haven't read all of these (actually I haven't read most of them) but they sure do make me want to read them all right away!

So which trailers were your favorite this year? Any you really liked that I missed?

Breathless Reads (The Eternal Ones, The Replacement, Nightshade, Matched, and Sapphique)

The Karma Club by Jessica Brody

Heist Society by Ally Carter

Vixen (The Flappers) by Jillian Larkin

Matched by Ally Condie

Rapunzel's Revenge by Shannon Hale (not actually a 2010 book, but I saw the trailer on Shannon Hale's blog in Feb of 2010, which is why it makes the cut)

The Poison Diaries by Maryrose Wood

Mistwood by Leah Cypess

Hearts at Stake (Drake Chronicles, Book 1) by Alyxandra Harvey (also technically a 2009 book, but I saw in Feb 2010)

The Iron Fey by Julie Kagawa

I love the trailer for Breathless Reads, it's pure eyecandy! My favorite for 2010 would be The Karma Club, I really enjoyed the humor and use of music in the trailer. 2010 was a great year for book trailers, I'm excited to see what trailers come out in 2011. I already have a few favorites. :D
