Book trailer Thursday #4

Book trailer Thursday is a meme hosted by us where we put the trailer for a book in the spotlight.
This week we're spotlighting Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini.

What it says on Goodreads:
Set on the island of Nantucket, STARCROSSED tells the tale of Helen Hamilton, a young woman whose destiny is forever altered when she meets Lucas Delos and tries to kill him in front of her entire high school. Which is terribly inconvenient, not only because Lucas is the most beautiful boy on the island, but also because Helen is so achingly shy she suffers physical pain whenever she is given too much attention. 

Making matters worse, Helen is beginning to suspect she’s going crazy. Whenever she’s near Lucas or any member of his family she sees the ghostly apparitions of three women weeping bloody tears, and suffers the burden of an intense and irrational hate. She soon learns that she and Lucas are destined to play the leading roles in a Greek tragedy that the Three Fates insist on repeating over and over again throughout history. Like her namesake, Helen of Troy, she’s destined to start a war by falling in love. But even though Lucas and Helen can see their own star-crossed destiny, they’re still powerfully attracted to each other. Will they give up their personal happiness for the greater good, or risk it all to be together?

This is the first book in the Starcrossed series. The second book, Dreamless, was one of the first books I features in my Waiting on Wednesday posts. I really enjoyed this book and I hope, if you read it, you'll enjoy it as well :)

  1. I loved starcrossed so liked seeing the trailer to it, I'd have liked to see some live action rather than just the pictures, but thought it was a good trailer and works well for the themes in the book.
