Wishlist Wednesday #11

Dani at Pen to Paper Blog where we will post about one book per week that has been on our wishlist for some time, or just added (it's entirely up to you), that we can't wait to get off the wishlist and onto our wonderful shelves.

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Hardcover, 416 pages
Published January 11th 2011 by Razorbill

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 am probably one of the few people that haven’t read this book yet. I’m not sure why it really didn’t catch my attention at first. I thought it was just some teenage love story but after actually reading the synopsis and hearing some people talk about it I want to pick it up.

I, of course, will wait for a really good sale or I hope to find it at HPB but if that doesn’t happen then Christmas is just around the corner.


  1. I really hope you enjoy it! It looks like a good book:) here's my wishlist:

  2. Interesting choice - hope you get to read it soon.

  3. Ooooh, I had this one a few weeks ago, I LOVE the cover and the synopsis is so cool. I still have to get it. I have part 2 only :)

  4. Hi,
    New follower here! I have had this one on my TBR list for a while now. I, like you, was worried it was going to be another teenage love story. I may have to give it a second look. Great choice. Here's the link to mine:

    1. Thanks for stopping by and following! I followed you too!


  5. I haven't read it either. High-five! Hopefully we'll both get to it soon.

    My WW:

    1. Glad I'm not the only one! Seems like a few people haven't read it yet.


  6. I read this one last year, and really enjoyed it. It's more sci-fi-ish than seems to be trendy in YA right now, which is something that I liked about it. I haven't gotten to the sequel yet, but I'm looking forward to it. Enjoy!
