Volition by Lily Paradis Cover Reveal!

It’s here! The beautiful cover of Volition is finally here! This simple yet gorgeous cover was created by Sarah Hansen of Okay Creations and I think she needs a round of applause. I want to display this book on my bookshelf now. What do you think, do you love it? I do!


Now that you have seen the captivating cover, I am sure you are wondering what this book is about so here is the description for Volition!

You know that feeling in the pit of your stomach that stays with you, then tears you
apart slowly at first, and all at once shreds every fiber of your being?
It’s because you’re contradicting the universe.
Everything lines up so perfectly that you couldn’t have imagined it to work out any
better, but then you have to go and do everything humanly possible to ruin it because
you can’t stand to have it go right?
That’s what I did.
I did it because there’s a darkness that surrounds me, and I think I want it there.
My name is Tate McKenna, and my soul is blacker than my heart.

Did anyone else get chills? Whoa boy, I cannot wait to meet Tate McKenna! Talk about being vague! Thank goodness I don’t have to wait too long to find out what this book is about because Volition releases on February 9th, 2015!

So, what do you think of the book cover? Will you be getting this book for yourself? I know I will! I mean just look at the whole masterpiece!

*sigh* I just want to hug it.

Plus, would you look at these reviews? They just make me want this book even more!

"A read that will keep you on your toes until the very end. Genius!" Makayla (The Book Life)

"This is a twisted tale... that you can relate to." - Bryce (Novels to Song)

“Beautifully twisted...A novel that shocks and surprises, and is not your typical love story. A gripping read filled with complex characters, dark humor and lyrical writing that leaves you wanting more! Paradis produced a story that carried a lot of emotion that dealt with love, relationships, and the darkness that surrounds death and the mark it leaves on those who have escaped it.” - Ashley F. (Falling Down the Book Hole)

"The story was lined with black and drowned in glitter... Volition is one of those books that makes you reflect on life's past, present, and future." - Abbey (Books a la Mode)

"I could not put this beautiful and dark tale of Tate McKenna down! Be with her as she discovers the impact that free will, fate and the act of letting go can have on a person!” - Jaclyn (Living in a World of Book Quotes)


AND if that isn’t enough to spike your interest…well I feel bad for you, but how about two short excerpts to get you wanting more?

Excerpt #1:

Right now it’s not enough to have just a little bit of Hayden. I want all of him. I want to be engulfed by him. I want him to set me on fire and burn me until I’m nothing but ashes. And then I want him to set a flame to those ashes, because he’s the only one who can.

Excerpt #2:

I look up into the sky to see all of the drops falling on the ground before they make contact. I realize the drops have more in common with me than I think. We’re all just falling until we’re not falling, and we don’t really have a choice where we land.

*mouth drops open in disbelief* Guys, I need this book ASAP.  I totally want more! Are you with me?!
