Waiting On Wednesday (6): A Million Suns, Beth Revis

What is it? 
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

A Million Suns
by Beth Revis (author website)
Pre-Order:  Book Depository  |  Amazon
Pub Date:  Jan. 10, 2011 from Razorbill

From Goodreads:
Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.

Across The Universe took me totally by surprise. Despite frexing hating the 'word' "Frex", I LOVED it. WAY more than I expected to. My favourite book of the year level-love. At the very least, it's sharing that place with Shatter Me. It still haunts me between books. I keep finding myself daydreaming about staring at the window of Godspeed watching the stars. And, for this reason, I NEED A Million Suns. Now, please XD

What are YOU waiting on, my lovely peoples?

  16. Seriously, I've wanted to give Across the Universe a try, but sci-fi is generally my least favorite genre and so... to say I've been reluctant is putting it mildly. But at the same time I feel like I'm missing out!

    Hopefully, I'll get to it one of these days! Have an amazing reading week!
