Dusty Reads (19)

Dusty Reads is a weekly post, hosted by Giselle at Xpresso Reads, featuring a book that has been sitting unread on your home shelf for some time.

My pick this week:
Across the Universe (Across the Universe, #1) Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed. She expects to awaken on a new planet, 300 years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, Amy's cryo chamber is unplugged, and she is nearly killed.

Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader, and Elder, his rebellious and brilliant teenage heir.

Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she? All she knows is that she must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.


  1. Omg me too! I actually only bought this one a few weeks ago but I had no idea how popular it was before then. Now I'm really curious but I have to get through some review books before I can finally see what the fuss is about!

  2. You guys need to read this one!!! I promise you will not be disappointed!!!

  3. I started reading this on Kindle, but I didn't finish it. I think it's me and the Kindle. We're not very good friends. I much rather read a hard copy. I'll probably finish it in paperback because I've heard it's really good. It started out very interesting!
