Bool Trailer Thursday: Starcrossed

Every Thursday we (all who wish to join and the host Quillcafe) welcome everyone to join us in celebrating the awesomeness that is book trailers.

To participate, on a Thursday you post an entry in your blog with an embedded book trailer of your choice (note: the trailer can be fan made but please no movie trailers of book adaptations) with your thoughts and comments underneath. It can be a book you have read, ant to read or have never even come across before.

This week I've chosen Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini.

This is the type of trailer that I'm used to, pictures, captions and music. And with a book as amazing sounding as Starcrossed that's all you really need. I haven't read it yet but it's high on my list since I love anything mythology related.
This trailer is intriguing and is really well made but I think I preferred this one with actors:
While at times it might look like a commercial for some perfume or new clothing line, I feel like the actors made it seem a little more real.
When we read books we might connect with the characters but we know that they're fictional in a equally fictional situation. Well I do anyway, for me most play out like movies. But I've never thought "hey what if this did happen?" And this trailer really put that though into my head.
Only problem: the guy's hair, maybe if I stare at it long enough I'll accept it but at first sight, not so much.

If someone were to combine these two trailers I think it would have amazing results.
