TBR TUESDAY: Across The Universe

Tuesdays were talking about the books coming that we want to add to our To Be Read pile. I'm going to admit I've been dying to get my hands on this book! And no, it's not just because of the huge buzz and amount of press it's already gotten. I'm a fantasy and sc-fi geek from back in the day (1980s and before). I devoured the first chapter when it was made available, and if I didn't hate mornings so badly, I would have been banging on the doors of the bookstore to buy Beth Revis's Across The Universe as it released today, 1/11/11. (what an auspicious date!!)

Here's the blurb from Beth's site:

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.

And go to Beth's site for other ATU related info.
