In 2016 I read 191 books and made 340 teasers/gifs. Sometimes I get inspired even just by looking at the book cover and sometimes, I get stumped trying to think how to make a teaser significant.
I like to make my teasers to mimic the book cover and/or the book feel. I also like to use images/items that are significant to the book. I think that’s what made me like a particular teasers more than the other – because it has meaning, even if no one else understand the significance.
This year I also started taking book pictures for Instagram. It’s not an easy thing to do considering I don’t own a fancy schmancy camera to start with. Also, I can edit teasers with effects and embellishment, but I am basically clueless when editing plain photos haha! Taking pictures takes a lot of time too with finding props, getting right lighting and angles. But I really enjoyed doing it so will continue doing so.
Mostly I take pictures of my currently reading ARCs. I did some of non ARCs as well and I’ve participated on some challenges too which can be really fun!
Below are my favorite teasers/gif/photos (in no particular order). Click the image to go to the original post.
I only made one. It takes too much time that I can’t afford to spent lol!
2016 has been a good reading year for me. Hopefully 2017 will bring more amazing books that will inspire more creativity!
Note: I planned to post this much earlier but my travelling interfered and I don’t like scheduling post because I’m a control freak lol!
