Hopefully this post won’t take too long.. I’m currently taking a break from studying stupid physics :( Here are some interesting things I’ve found in the last little bit.
Teaser trailer: Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
~book trailers are hit and miss for me, and usually if they have people, they’re a miss. I am just saying (but there are lots of exceptions!) This one really embodies the name “teaser”, eh? Whatcha think?
FREE E-BOOKS! Sandra Brannan’s novel, In The Belly Of Jonah AND her second novel, Lot's Return To Sodom, will be FREE from Amazon the first week of June to celebrate her second novel’s release! It looks fantastic, don’t miss out!! ;)
Movie Soundtracks (Instrumental)
So hey, I love music of all sorts but one think that’s always been interesting to me were movie soundtracks*. I’ll admit, I’m a junkie for those big-name composers (Hans Zimmer, John Williams, Howard Shore, etc) and I love the role music plays in movies. It sets the atmosphere and the mood, it gets your heart racing and your adrenaline pumping. It can make you cry, make you scream, make you curl up into a ball waiting for the shark to jump out of the water…
I just thought I’d share a few that have been on my mind. I’m especially inclined to those ‘epic’-style soundtracks with lots of strings and lots of awesomeness. I hope you like!
Black Hawk Down (Hans Zimmer) [compilation]
Inception (Hans Zimmer) [the Dream is Collapsing]
Braveheart (James Horner) [Wallace Courts Murron]
~LOVE the Celtic flare to this one. I can’t dance, but it makes me want to… tap my toes.
Anyways, if you like these, maybe I’ll post about movie soundtracks again next time. Again, huge apologies for the lack of book posts this week, I’ve just been swamped.
Question of the Day: What are your favourite movie soundtracks? And what are your thoughts on book trailers? :)
*a fantastic non-instrumental soundtrack I adore is the one from Up in the Air. Also, the main song from Crazy Heart, and Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist rocks as well. Also, see this post.
