Ok, so I know I'm a little late to the game reading ACROSS THE UNIVERSE by Beth Revis. In fact, Veronica already has posted about it...over two years ago. But we all know how high To-Be-Read lists get.

From the author's website:

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder. When Amy is frozen aboard the interstellar spaceship Godspeed, she expects to be woken in 300 years on a new planet. Instead, someone wakes her up early…and if Amy doesn’t figure out soon, the next people woken up might not survive–including her parents.

Anyhow, this week I finished the first installment of the series. And WOW. Holy world-building, Batman. The vivid details--and the character's interactions with them--make for a jaw-dropping realism. Speaking of characters, Revis' are complex, fun, and great tour guides through the book's seamless plot. There's plenty of action and intrigue. A good amount of romance, but not enough to make me dry heave (it happens sometimes within YA).

There's been a ton of buzz around Revis' series...and now I know why.  I can't wait to read the next one (and it's here--somewhere--in my To-Be-Read pile. Seriously, it's got to be in here. Just give me a moment to find it...)


And here I thought it was a Beatles homage.
