Happy Birthday to Me! Book B

In honor of my (Nicole's) July 10th birthday:

A. Read a book by a writer who is a Cancer (June 21-July 22)
B. Read a book that has a NOUN in the title. This noun MUST appear on page 31 of your Part A book (I am turning 31 this summer).
As you may or may not recall, I read The Outsiders for the first part of this challenge. On that page was the word "name". Actually, the phrase "My Name is" was on that page. So I chose to read My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares. She is most known for the books about the traveling pants, but since I have not read those, this was my first taste of her.

I wrote up a full book review over at The Broke and the Bookish but I wanted to talk about something else in relation to this book. The book trailer. Take a look.

Seems like a great book! Where was that book? Because it sure as hell wasn't the story I read. I don't know how I feel about book trailers. I like ones like this better then the words floating on the screen. But they don't really influence me to read a book one way or another. Mostly because you get trailers like the above one, trailers I want to have babies with I love it so much, and then they are nothing like the book. But then you get other book trailers that have meh trailers and the books are made of win.

So I guess my point is with this is wondering what you all think of book trailers, and to complain that this was not the book I read. Though this trailer does remind me of Bright Star. And if you are looking for a good movie with some romance in a historical setting, I suggest that one.
