Waiting on Wednesday (80)

I generally try not to feature more than one book at a time on WoW posts, but several books that I have long been pining for finally revealed their covers recently, and I couldn't resist!

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
(Razorbill / Jan. 11, 2011)

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've known Beth from her blog before she got her book deal and became a mega-star author. Doesn't her debut novel sound fantastic? A murder mystery aboard a spaceship--gotta love me some good sci-fi! And what a gorgeous cover. I was so anxious, hoping that she'd get a really good one, and this one has a total movie poster vibe to it that would look fantastic blown up and hung on a wall. I'm an astrophysics nerd, so I'm absolutely gaga over the bottom half of that cover, and the top half is creepily sci-fi. You can read Chapter 1 at the book's website too! Yayyy, Beth!

Fall for Anything by Courtney Summers
(St. Martin's Griffin / Dec. 21, 2010)

When Eddie Reeves’s father commits suicide her life is consumed by the nagging question of why? Why when he was a legendary photographer and a brilliant teacher? Why when he had a daughter who loved him more than anyone else in the world? When she meets Culler Evans, a former student of her father’s and a photographer himself, an instant and dangerous attraction begins. He seems to know more about her father than she does and could possibly hold the key to the mystery surrounding his death. But Eddie’s vulnerability has weakened her and Culler Evans is getting too close. Her need for the truth keeps her hanging on… but some questions should be left unanswered.

Courtney's books are auto-buys for me. I don't care if she chooses to write about boarding schools, or vampires, or rainbow-striped unicorns... I will read it. So happy she has another book coming out soon!

Where She Went by Gayle Forman
(Dutton / April 19, 2011)

The sequel to If I Stay, from Adam's point of view 3 years later. Adam, now a rising rock star, and Mia, a successful cellist, reunite in New York and reconnect after the horrific events that tore them apart when Mia almost died in a car accident three years earlier.

There's not much about this book out there yet (except for the teaser tour that's been going on these past few weeks), but this is an absolute must for me. If I Stay had me bawling for hours and hours, and, uh, this cover? Total cover love. Yes, I'm aware it's another picture of a female model, but I don't care, I love the saturation and the wind in her hair and the bluish-gray background.


I am SO UTTERLY EXCITED for these three books!


  1. 3 great picks! Across the Universe sound especially amazing! And Where She Went reminds me that I must read If I Stay!
