Across the Universe by Beth Revis


Goodreads Description:
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.


Unearthly (Unearthly #1) by Cynthia Hand
Goodreads Description:
In the beginning, there's a boy standing in the trees . . . .

Clara Gardner has recently learned that she's part angel. Having angel blood run through her veins not only makes her smarter, stronger, and faster than humans (a word, she realizes, that no longer applies to her), but it means she has a purpose, something she was put on this earth to do. Figuring out what that is, though, isn't easy.

Her visions of a raging forest fire and an alluring stranger lead her to a new school in a new town. When she meets Christian, who turns out to be the boy of her dreams (literally), everything seems to fall into place—and out of place at the same time. Because there's another guy, Tucker, who appeals to Clara's less angelic side.

As Clara tries to find her way in a world she no longer understands, she encounters unseen dangers and choices she never thought she'd have to make—between honesty and deceit, love and duty, good and evil. When the fire from her vision finally ignites, will Clara be ready to face her destiny?

Unearthly is a moving tale of love and fate, and the struggle between following the rules and following your heart.


The Lost Saint (The Dark Divine #2) by Bree Despain
Goodreads Description:
The non-stop sequel to The Dark Divine delivers an even hotter romance and more thrilling action than Bree Despain's first novel. Grace Divine made the ultimate sacrifice to cure Daniel Kalbi. She gave her soul to the wolf to save him and lost her beloved mother. When Grace receives a haunting phone call from Jude, she knows what she must do. She must become a Hound of Heaven. Desperate to find Jude, Grace befriends Talbot - a newcomer to town who promises her that he can help her be a hero. But as the two grow closer, the wolf grows in Grace, and her relationship with Daniel begins to crumble. Unaware of the dark path she is walking, Grace becomes prideful in her new abilities - not realizing that an old enemy has returned and deadly trap is about to be sprung. Readers, raveous for more Grace and Daniel, will be itching to sink their teeth into The Lost Saint.

Awakened (House of Night #8) by P.C. Cast, Kristin Cast
Goodreads Description:
At the start of Awakened, the pulse-pounding eighth installment of the bestselling House of Night series, Zoey has returned, mostly whole, from the Otherworld to her rightful place as High Priestess at the House of Night. Her friends are just glad to have her back, but after losing her human consort, Heath, will Zoey—or her relationship with her super- hot Warrior, Stark—ever be the same? Stevie Rae is drawn even closer to Rephaim, the Raven Mocker with whom she shares a mysterious and powerful Imprint, but he is a dangerous secret that isolates her from her school, her red fledglings, and even her best friends. When the dark threat of Neferet—who is coming closer and closer to achieving her twisted goal of immortality—and Kalona returns, what will it take to keep the House of Night from being lost forever, and what will one desperate girl do to keep her heart from being irreparably broken?

Much more to come next week...So many books, so little time! Have a great day everyone!

ATU - Yay! Me too. But you know what? Book depository sent me two copies. *shrug* I was going to send one back but have decided to do a giveaway instead. lol

Heather Hellmann said...

Across the Universe sounds so good! It makes me think of 2001 A Space Odyssey, which is one of my favorite movies.

Matthew Rush said...

We bought AtU last week. I really need to hurry up and finish The Marbury Lens so that I can start it!

LTM said...

ooo... ATU sounds so so good! I can't wait to read it. :D I tried one of those Cast books and was tres disappointed, though~ :o\ <3

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Yay for Atu. So many good books on your list (as always). Now I need to get Unearthly and The lost saint. My poor, huge TBR pile. LOL.

Melissa said...

You have some really awesome titles here!

Natalie Aguirre said...

I got Across the Universe too. My daughter claimed it first. And I can't wait to read Awakened, though I am a few books behind in the series.

Jen Daiker said...

Wow! Kick ass list this week!!! Seriously. I see a lot of things I like...

Wait... I like books... so I guess I like them all :)

Stephanie Faris said...

I'm with you on that! I have been going through a book every week or two and that's only because I get up early and walk on my treadmill so I can read. Most of what I read is middle grade and YA, though.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

I've read the Dark Divine, but can't remember anything of it. Which means I won't be reading the sequel.

I used to read the House of Night series, but gave up at the fifth book. There was no ending in sight to the series. Those aren't my favorite kinds.

Unearthly looks really good. :D

Lisa said...

So jealous of you having Across the Universe. I can't wait to read it!
