Book Trailer Thursday #32 - Carnival of Souls and Forget Me Not

Book Trailer Thursday is a feature inspired by Once Upon a TwilightWe are hoping to promote not only new books that are out or are soon to be out on the shelves, but to also promote the creation of book trailers themselves! Make sure to post a comment below and let us know what you've found out there this week!

This week’s trailers:

Author: Melissa Marr
Release Date: September 4, 2012
Published by: HarperCollins

In a city of diamons, the Carnival of Souls hosts a deadly competition. Once in a generation, every citizen can fight to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures - if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live.
In our own world, Mallory knows that her father - and every other witch - fled the diamons' city long ago. She trains to be lethal because it's only a matter of time until the daimons catch up with them.
While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City know of her. There are plans there for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence that is the Carnival of Souls. 
From Melissa Marr, bestselling author of the Wicked Lovely series, comes a brand-new tale of secrets, love and the struggle to forge one's own destiny. (Summary from Goodreads)

I simply cannot wait for this book to come out and it's SO soon now! This book trailer is EPIC! WOW! Has anyone read it yet by chance? How was it?

Ally is devastated when a scandalous photo of her is texted around school. With her reputation in shambles and her life essentially over, she hides out in a back hallway, trying to figure out where everything went wrong. 
Elijah has spent time in that hallway too. He landed there after taking a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Now he can see ghosts, and he knows what Ally has yet to suspect--that she's already half dead, and one choice away from never coming back. Elijah has loved Ally for years and would do anything to save her from the in-between place. But if she's going to live, Ally must face her inner demons and find the will to save herself. 
Told in interwoven verse narratives, this crushingly honest and poetic exploration of pain and redemption will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins. (Summary from Goodreads)

By the end of the trailer, I was so anxious because I don't want her to jump, especially since there is someone who is running toward her to help her. I imagine the trailer reflects the pace of the story.

What's your favorite book trailer of the week?
