Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
Grab your current read.
Open to a random page.
Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page * BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!
"Your goal when playing it will be to win the crown of the kingdom of Anachronia, using all your wits, skills and talents. The people will only give the crown to someone who can do three things: end the threat of the three-headed dragon terrorizing the land, unite the two warring clans that live there, and help the people of Anachronia flourish." Rise of the Fire Tamer by Kailin Gow
Trailer Tuesday is a Weekly Blog Post hosted by Blood Sweat and Books. Each week I will choose a Trailer or 2 to showcase. I'm going to mix it up a bit different than Kristin. It will either be for an upcoming book and/or movie that I'm excited about. Or it will be a book trailer that has already been released. I love Trailers! I could sit for hours and watch them. :) They can make me so hyped for a book or movie if done right. I hope you enjoy my selections and if you want to participate in the next or other upcoming trailer Tuesdays go here and find out more about it. Make sure to leave a link in the comments so I can check yours out as well.
Revolution 19 by Gregg Rosenblum
Published on Jan 7, 2013 on YouTube
"At first we called it system-wide malfunctions when the robots stopped fighting at exactly 2:15PM Greenwich Mean Time, August 17, 2071. They had been designed by humans to fight our wars, but for twenty-two hours the battlefields were silent. We called it a miracle and the beginning of a new peace. Then when the bots began killing again, now targeting their human commanders, we shook our heads and called it fatal programming errors. When, a day later, the skies over cities on six continents grew dark with warships, we began to understand. And when the bombs rained down and then legions of bot footsoldiers marched into the burning ruins, killing any humans who resisted and dragging away the rest of us, we finally called it what it was: Revolution."
Kevin, Nick, and Cass lived with their parents in a secret human community outside the bounds of robot-controlled society, until the day their presence was detected and the entire village was wiped out. Now, the three siblings are determined to discover whether there are any survivors who were taken prisoner by the machines. To do so they must venture into the heart of the robot's city, where humans live under the regimented command of the machines, and where one misstep could be their last.
Created in conjunction with Alloy and award-winning writer/directors Howard Gordon and James Wong, Revolution 19 is an action-filled epic...and an entertaining and cinematic thriller unlike anything else.
