The Host, Stephanie Meyer's latest arrived on Friday from Amazon. I ordered it because it is Becky's book club read for July but I don't know if I can keep my hands off it. It's siren call is getting stronger and stronger, I might have to hide it away in a draw.
Have you seen What's your story? on the Waterstone's site. They asked authors and the public to write their stories on a postcard. I loved the J K Rowling Harry Potter presequel, always fun to visit old friends. Neil Gaiman's was good too, amausing and clever. My favourite is Lauren Child's I adore her Charlie and Lola books and her style of writing.
Finally I thought this was an interesting post about book trailers. I quite liked the trailer for Run but I'd rather choose my books by the cover and the title and recommendations of course. I do love soundtracks to books though. Many authors seem to be putting up soundtracks to their books on their blogs. Often when I hear a song it reminds me of a book "Look after you" by The Fray makes me think of Twilight and "Summer Skin" by Death Cub for Cutie brings to mind Hideous Kinky. It's interesting to hear what the authors connect to their books.
