Dystopian Trailers Ahoy!

Many thanks to everyone who took part in my recent Halloween poll. My month-long "spooky post" blogathon definitely will be back this October, and I'm looking forward to it!

* Presenting Lenore is celebrating dystopian August this month on her blog.

* I just finished reading the dystopian novel Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro. (My review is up on Goodreads.) I now realize this was good timing. The film adaptation is due out in theaters next month. Here's the trailer:




And speaking of trailers (and dystopias), here's the book trailer for the third book in Suzanne Collins' Hunger Games trilogy, Mockingjay. There's not long to wait until August 24! Hot Topic also has Hunger Games t-shirts in time for the new release. There's news on the upcoming film adaptation, as well.




Last but definitely not least, happy birthday to lizziebelle! May you have a wonderful day and a fantastic year to come.
