Spotted: Book Trailers: Crave, Dark Eden and more!


Check out the book trailers for some YA fall releases I'm super excited about:

Dark Eden
by Patrick Carman

Release Date: November 1st 2011
by HarperCollins Children's Books, Hardcover, 336 pages
Official website; Goodreads Giveaway (US Only)

Goodreads blurb

Fifteen-year-old Will Besting is sent by his doctor to Fort Eden, an institution meant to help patients suffering from crippling phobias. Once there, Will and six other teenagers take turns in mysterious fear chambers and confront their worst nightmares—with the help of the group facilitator, Rainsford, an enigmatic guide. When the patients emerge from the chamber, they feel emboldened by the previous night's experiences. But each person soon discovers strange, unexplained aches and pains. . . . What is really happening to the seven teens trapped in this dark Eden?

Patrick Carman's Dark Eden is a provocative exploration of fear, betrayal, memory, and— ultimately—immortality. 
This isn't a book I'd pick up right away, but the blurb and trailer got me all intrigued here! It seems to be dark, scary and full of tension, which might be good for a change. (Check out the website, it's really cool and they also have an interesting phone application)


The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns #1)
 by Rae Carson

Release Date: September 20th 2011
by Greenwillow Books, Hardcover, 432 pages
Goodreads Giveaway (US, CA only)

Goodreads Blurb:

Once a century, one person is chosen for greatness.

Elisa is the chosen one.

But she is also the younger of two princesses, the one who has never done anything remarkable. She can’t see how she ever will.

Now, on her sixteenth birthday, she has become the secret wife of a handsome and worldly king—a king whose country is in turmoil. A king who needs the chosen one, not a failure of a princess.

And he’s not the only one who needs her. Savage enemies seething with dark magic are hunting her. A daring, determined revolutionary thinks she could be his people’s savior. And he looks at her in a way that no man has ever looked at her before. Soon it is not just her life, but her very heart that is at stake.

Elisa could be everything to those who need her most. If the prophecy is fulfilled. If she finds the power deep within herself. If she doesn’t die young.

Most of the chosen do.
I've heard sooo many good things about this one! I've also seen various covers for it and I'm not sure which one is the final one, but they're all gorgeous!


Crave (The Clann #1)
by Melissa Darnell

Release Date: October 18th 2011
by Harlequin Teen, Paperback, 416 pages

Goodreads blurb:

Savannah Colbert has been shunned all her life by the kids of the Clann. And when she undergoes some drastic changes after a strange illness, Savannah learns secrets about the group and about herself—dangerous secrets. For the Clann are powerful magic users, and Savannah herself is half Clann and half vampire—a forbidden, unheard of combination. Falling for Clann golden boy Tristan Coleman isn't just a bad idea—it could be deadly if anyone finds out. But her attraction to Tristan—and his to her—isn't something either of them can resist for long.
I love the cover! Magic and vampires have always been my favorite supernatural elements, so this book seems to be right up my alley! I can't wait to read it!

What do you think about the trailers? Do they make you pick up the books? Are these books on your TBR list already?
