Hey this is NEWS!...sad news =(

As you may have noticed The post's here on the Book Paparazzi have been getting fewer and fewer. NOT because of lack of content BUT because WERE all heading back to school. Yes, the horrible SCHOOL!
Nikki & Eileen are headed off to school once more and I, Lisseth, will be starting COLLEGE!! @_@ It kinda feels surreal. SO with school comes the Homework and the projects and the tests...so were gonna all be stressed, I know Nikki is hating that MATH already XD
PLUS on top of that we all have our own BLOGS! That just add so much more to our plates [P.S Eileen runs like 4 blogs O_O] SO with much heartache, it pains me to say...
That we are CLOSING DOWN.
NO! This is NOT GOODBYE...
it's just a break. We'll be back here SOON and hopefully with an AWESOME welcome back giveaway [Hosted by Me, here]. Their might be a post here and there once in a while BUT nothing everyday. We tried, really we did, BUT we just can't, were NOT all WONDER WOMAN, you know ;D
Yes, a break will do us all good! We'll be back with a TON of content and HAPPY! =D We thank & HUG each and every one of you for following us! HOPEFULLY you will still be here when we come back.
So until next time, BYE!

Okay, guys, so this week I don't have many. Blogs tours are harder to find than you'd think. So this week, I only have two. Yeah, yeah, bask in my patheticness. I would have like a BILLION for you guys...if, you know, my wonderful iPad didn't decide to just erase EVERY ONE OF MY BOOK RELEASES. That's my other post topic here on The Book Paparazzi, and I spent close to an hour organizing that list, and then it was deleted. So I was really peeved and never got to do my "tour research" that I usually do, and it's a very complicated process thank you very much.

Tuesday: Trailers of AWESOMENESS!! (8)

WOOHOO! Another awesome week of TRAILERS!! PLUS the book paparazzi has Reached 120 followers! YAY! Thank you, spread the word & help us reach 200 & there will be a GIVEAWAY! So let's START!
Don't Turn Around (PERSEF0NE Trilogy #1) by Michelle Gagnon
Sixteen-year-old Noa has been a victim of the system ever since her parents died. Now living off the grid and trusting no one, she uses her computer-hacking skills to stay safely anonymous and alone. But when she wakes up on a table in an empty warehouse with an IV in her arm and no memory of how she got there, Noa starts to wish she had someone on her side.
Enter Peter Gregory. A rich kid and the leader of a hacker alliance, Peter needs people with Noa’s talents on his team. Especially after a shady corporation threatens his life. But what Noa and Peter don’t realize is that Noa holds the key to a terrible secret, and there are those who’d stop at nothing to silence her for good.
Filled with action, suspense, and romance, this first book in a new trilogy offers readers nonstop thrills.
PUB Date: August 28th 2012 by HarperCollins [Goodreads]
**Lisseth Note**: I love the trailer for this book, it feels creepy & unique. PLUS that it comes alive in a way. Really interested in reading it!
Carnival of Souls by Melissa Marr
In a city of daimons, rigid class lines separate the powerful from the power-hungry. And at the heart of The City is the Carnival of Souls, where both murder and pleasure are offered up for sale. Once in a generation, the carnival hosts a deadly competition that allows every daimon a chance to join the ruling elite. Without the competition, Aya and Kaleb would both face bleak futures--if for different reasons. For each of them, fighting to the death is the only way to try to live.
All Mallory knows of The City is that her father--and every other witch there--fled it for a life in exile in the human world. Instead of a typical teenage life full of friends and maybe even a little romance, Mallory scans quiet streets for threats, hides herself away, and trains to be lethal. She knows it's only a matter of time until a daimon finds her and her father, so she readies herself for the inevitable. While Mallory possesses little knowledge of The City, every inhabitant of The City knows of her. There are plans for Mallory, and soon she, too, will be drawn into the decadence and danger that is the Carnival of Souls.
PUB Date: September 4th 2012 by HarperCollins [Goodreads]
**Lisseth Note**: I LOVE,LOVE,LOVE this trailer. It really brings you into the book & i am SO excited for it, I read the sampler & OMG, it was AWESOME! Really like that the fighting & issues of the book are gonna be intense. PLUS the actor who dies is pretty HOT =P
Intentions by Deborah Heiligman
Rachel thought she was grown up enough to accept that no one is perfect. Her parents argue, her grandmother has been acting strangely, and her best friend doesn't want to talk to her. But none of that could have prepared her for what she overheard in her synagogue's sanctuary.
Now Rachel's trust in the people she loves is shattered, and her newfound cynicism leads to reckless rebellion. Her friends and family hardly recognize her, and worse, she can hardly recognize herself. But how can the adults in her life lecture her about acting with kavanah, intention, when they are constantly making such horribly wrong decisions themselves? This is a witty, honest account of navigating the daunting line between losing innocence and entering adulthood—all while figuring out who you really want to be.
Pub Date: August 14th 2012 by Knopf Books for Young Readers [Goodreads]
**Lisseth Note**: I really liked the song they picked for the trailer, it really connected with the words & images. I liked the ominous ending with the guy...hmmm. I really WANT to read this book now!
What do you guys think? Comment! =D

The Impossibility of Tomorrow (Incarnation, #2)







 Impossibility of Tomorrow by Avery Williams












Wicked Kiss Blurb and Cover
MY KISS CAN KILL.

I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop - or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....

Now, not only does Mickey have to continue his quest to uncover the truth about the Abeona Shelter, the Butcher of Lodz and the mysterious death of his father, he needs to figure out who shot Rachel—no matter what it takes.

False Memory (False Memory #1) by Dan Krokos
Miranda wakes up alone on a park bench with no memory. In her panic, she releases a mysterious energy that incites pure terror in everyone around her. Except Peter, a boy who isn't at all surprised by Miranda's shocking ability.
Left with no choice but to trust this stranger, Miranda discovers she was trained to be a weapon and is part of an elite force of genetically-altered teens who possess flawless combat skills and powers strong enough to destroy a city. But adjusting to her old life isn't easy--especially with Noah, the boyfriend she can't remember loving. Then Miranda uncovers a dark truth that sets her team on the run. Suddenly her past doesn't seem to matter...when there may not be a future.
Dan Krokos' debut is a tour-de-force of non-stop action that will leave readers begging for the next book in this bold and powerful new series.

Entice (The Violet Eden Chapters #2) by Jessica Shirvington
Violet Eden is Grigori - part angel, part human. Her destiny is to protect humans from the vengence of exiled angels.
Knowing who to trust is key but, when Grigori reinforcements arrive, it becomes clear everyone is hiding something. Even Lincoln. The only thing Violet does know: Phoenix's hold over her is more dangerous than ever.
The race to find the one thing that could tilt the balance of power brings them all to the sacred mountains of Jordan, where Violet's power will be pushed to the extreme. And the ultimate betrayal exposed.
Enticed is the second compelling book in The Violet Eden Chapters.

Forget Me Not by Carolee Dean
From the author of Take Me There, a fast-paced novel in verse about a girl caught between life and death—and the boy who will do anything to save her.
Ally is devastated when a scandalous photo of her is texted around school. With her reputation in shambles and her life essentially over, she hides out in a back hallway, trying to figure out where everything went wrong.
Elijah has spent time in that hallway too. He landed there after taking a whole bottle of sleeping pills. Now he can see ghosts, and he knows what Ally has yet to suspect—that she’s already half dead, and one choice away from never coming back. Elijah has loved Ally for years and would do anything to save her from the in-between place. But if she’s going to live, Ally must face her inner demons and find the will to save herself.
Told in interwoven verse narratives, this crushingly honest and poetic exploration of pain and redemption will appeal to fans of Ellen Hopkins.
