Book Trailer Thursday #43 - Everbound and You Have Seven Messages

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:

(Everneath, Book 2)
Author: Brodi Ashton  
Release Date: January 22, 2013
Published by: Balzar+Bray/HarperTeen

Nikki Beckett could only watch as her boyfriend, Jack, sacrificed himself to save her. Desperate for answers, Nikki turns to Cole, the immortal bad boy who wants to make her his queen--and the one person least likely to help. Nikki and Cole, along with Cole's bandmate Max, descend into Everneath, only to discover that their journey will be more difficult than they'd anticipated--and more deadly. But Nikki vows to stop at nothing to save Jack--even if it means making an incredible sacrifice of her own. In this breathtaking sequel to Everneath, Brodi Ashton tests the bonds of destiny and explores the lengths we'll go to for the ones we love.

I love the music when it changes in this trailer! And the words are perfection. I did find the swish noise of the words very obnoxious, but otherwise it's a fabulous trailer all in text basically. I love ones like this for examples of what big publishing houses are putting out there because my students can see that they really "can" create ones that are just as good.

Author: Stewart Lewis
Release Date: September 13, 2011

It's been a year since Luna's mother, the fashion-model wife of a successful film director, was hit and killed by a taxi in New York's East Village. Luna, her father, and her little brother, Tile, are still struggling with grief.
When Luna goes to clean out her mother's old studio, she's stunned to find her mom's cell phone there--charged and holding seven unheard messages. As Luna begins to listen to them, she learns more about her mother's life than she ever wanted to know...and she comes to realize that the tidy tale she's been told about her mother's death may not be the whole truth. (Summary from Goodreads)

Other than the music choice, I like how this book trailer highlights the major plot elements and big questions in the story.
