Happy Book Birthday to The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour!

I don’t usually like book trailers, but check out this one for The Disenchantments by Nina LaCour. I’m really into it:

I’ve been excited to read this book since I found her Hold Still at a used bookstore. Hold Still is a tender, straight, and gentle but also funny and vibrant account of how a girl deals with the suicide of her best friend. Nina LaCour is extra awesome because she’s a vocal advocate for gay and lesbian rights and healthy consideration of sexuality for teens, and is a frequent collaborator with her wife, rad photographer Kristyn Stroble.

I loved Hold Still, but I’m very excited to read The Disenchantments, which at least on the surface sounds less, uh, difficult. (In a good way!) You can also enter to win a free copy of The Disenchantments on Nova Ren Suma’s blog through Monday, or order it from your local independent bookseller.

Do you like book trailers? Do they encourage you to seek out a new release, or do you (like me) get turned off by the cheesy graphics and melodramatic acting?

  1. To be honest, this is the 1st book trailer I’ve ever seen, but now I’m in love with that song. I’ve been looking up a bunch of other songs from AgesandAges of whom I’d never heard before, but I love them now. For some reason, I want to ride a bike when I hear any of their songs. Thanks for the post!
