The Sinister Sweetness of Splendid Academy by Nikki Loftin

Oh my goodness, did I enjoy this one! I devoured it in a day, and I think my fellow Grimm lovers will definitely eat it up. Still not convinced? Check out the creepy book trailer below, or Nikki Loftin's site for more information about her and her great books. 
Most importantly of all, keep reading, my sweets (*insert evil witch cackle here*).

The Kingdom Keepers (Disney After Dark) by Ridley Pearson

There were SO many book trailers to pick from on YouTube for this book (which means a lot of readers were really inspired to create something about the book). There's also an hour long chat with the author, Ridley Pearson, that I did not post, but feel free to look it up :). You can also see more in the series by visiting the Kingdom Keepers website.

Pictures of Hollis Woods by Patricia Reilly Giff

And, of course, I found several book trailers. This one has stills from the movie (yes, this one was made into a movie). Now that I've read the book, I will probably try to track down the movie to see if it measures up.

More information about the author, Patricia Reilly Giff, can be found by clicking her name. Also, if you've seen the movie or read the book comment below. I'd love to know what you think!
