The creepy nursery rhyme being sung. The Ouija board. Those eyes at the end. Everything about this trailer makes me shudder. ...and also makes me quite desperate to read The Diviners by Libba Bray. Not that I really needed more of a reason, it's Libba Bray after all.
But how effective are book trailers in general for you? Do they make you want to read a book? Do they put you off it? Do you notice them at all?
I have to be the first to admit, I don't notice book trailers unless they are very well produced. With stunning visuals or music. There has to be something extra for me to take notice. But then, I also don't watch very many book trailers. I clicked on the link for The Diviners because it is a book I'm truly excited to read about already. What about those books that aren't as well hyped? Or debut books? Do you still watch and get excited about these books from the book trailers?
And I don't think book trailers go well for every single book. Is that just me?
Do you have any thoughts on book trailers? Do you have a favourite book trailer/s? Let me know.
