"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, originally started by Jill at Breaking the Spine , that highlights upcoming book releases everyone is waiting on...hence the title. This week's pick is one that I've had my eye on for a while, only now it has a cover and a beautiful one at that. It's Across the Universe by debut author Beth Revis. Here is the blurb from GoodReads:
"Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken 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 the 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."
YA IN SPACE!!!! I am salivating!!!! Across the Universe is published January 11th, 2011 and I'm *hoping*going to get an ARC for UK Book Tours. If you can't wait that long, you can read the first chapter right here and my goodness, it's good! Horrifyingly good and now I want to read more!!! ARGH!
