All I Want For Christmas Is... (3)
This is a great new meme created by Danya over at A Tapestry of Words. Hop over to her blog on Thursdays and join in the fun!
Across The Universe by Beth Revis
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 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.
I'm pretty sure that the cover and summary are self explanatory. This one actually comes out January 11th but I want to see a print out from Amazon.com saying this book is pre-ordered and will be waiting on my doorstep. The concept is so fresh and I can't wait to read it!
So how about you? What do you want for Christmas?
