David Levithan’s Every Day has inspired many readers to create their own creative book trailers. Here are two that try to capture the mood and feel of the novel with music and images. If you could choose a soundtrack to Every Day, what song(s) would you choose?
This book trailer perfectly captures the quirky, foreboding mood of Tom McNeal’s Far Far Away:
“What follows is the strange and fateful tale of a boy, a girl, and a ghost. … Will this fairy tale end happily ever after?”
Today’s book trailer takes you into the tense, magical world of Seraphina and asks, “Can one girl unite two worlds?”
Not sure which Top 10 book to read next? Book trailers can help! Like a movie trailer, a book trailer provides a 1-2 minute preview of a book’s plot and characters. Over the next weeks, we will be posting trailers for many of the Top 10 books. Today we bring you a creepy quartet: Four short trailers that set the backdrop for The 5th Wave.
