"Waiting on" Wednesday (5)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by the awesome Jill at Breaking the Spine where we all feature upcoming books we're eagerly anticipating.

This week I'm waiting on...

A Million Suns (Across the Universe, #2)

A Million Suns (Across The Universe #2) by Beth Revis

Hardcover, 400 pages

Expected publication: January 10th 2012 by Razorbill (first published January 1st 2012)

Blurb (taken from Goodreads):

"Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship."

Why I Want To Read This Book:

As if the cover is not enough motivation! *wink*

I recently participated in a Read-Along event hosted at the Secret of the Stars blog (a blog devoted solely to Beth Revis' novel, Across The Universe, and now its sequel, A Million Suns.

I thoroughly enjoyed the Read-Along and found myself drawn in by the story of Elder and Amy. The end of Across the Universe did not, thankfully, end on a cliffhanger (so I wasn't exactly pulling my hair out and suffering withdrawal symptoms once I was finished) but this is another book my mum and I read together and discussed in great detail. She's more interested in seeing the development of Amy and Elder's romance and, while I am also curious about that, I'm interested to see how Godspeed fares under Elder's rule. I imagined a scenario of complete chaos once the citizens were brought to full awareness but, from the glimpse I got at the end, things didn't look too bad.

Here's hoping for the best...!

I just wish January 10th would hurry up and get here already!

Until next week! :)
