Waiting on Wednesday (1)

October 13, 2010
This is my first Waiting on Wednesday post, but I have a feeling it won’t be my last. 🙂 Weekly things like this help keep my blog active, which is always a good thing. Haha.

Anyway, my WoW pick is Across the Universe by Beth Revis! I have been DYING to read this and am hoping I’ll come home one of these days and find an ARC in my mailbox.

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.

Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awake on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into a brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.

Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone—one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship—tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn’t do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now, Amy must race to unlock Godspeed’s hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there’s only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.

What’s not to love about this book? 🙂
