Book Trailer Talks is a weekly feature hosted by Melissa @ YA Bookshelf
This Week: Can you remember the first YA book trailer you ever saw? Did you like it then, and what do you think about it now after having seen other book trailers in the interim?
The first book trailer I saw wasn’t YA it was for a picture book: Violet I love both the trailer and the book. I thought it was the coolest thing the first time I saw it and I still think using the animation from the book with some text was the best way to go. The only thing I might change is I would add voiceover for the text.
The first YA book trailer I saw was White Cat. I remember loving the use of colour, black, white and red and that’s still true. I think the writing is sometimes too hard to read, but I like how the image becomes the book cover at the end.
What was your first book trailer?
