Across the Universe Release Day!

It's The Launch of the Good Ship Godspeed!

I am so excited that it's FINALLY 1.11.11, because that means Across the Universe by Beth Revis will be available TODAY!!! I was not one of the lucky ones to receive an ARC or early finished copy, so I haven't read the book yet. Early reviews are spectacular, though, and the story sounds so interesting that I just can't wait to dive in!

What's that? You've been living under the proverbial rock & haven't heard of ATU? No worries, check out the book trailer here:

Then check out this awesome video, where Beth talks about the inspiration for the book and the workings of the Godspeed ship:

Of course, I haven't read the book yet, but I think all three areas of the ship look worthy of exploration! I think the Feeder Level is the one most people on the ship would be familiar with, so I'd have to say that the Keeper Level would be where I'd sneak off to explore. Oh, and the Contingency sounds awfully intriguing, too. :o)

Have you already read ATU? What did you think? I was going to pre-order it for my nook, but I love the cover (actually, that the cover is reversible!), so I think I might actually buy a physical copy!

Enjoy your reading!


  1. Sorry this is unrelated to your post but I wanted to say thank you again for the wonderful Secret Santa gift! I just got a post up about it on my blog: http://age30books.blogspot.com/2011/01/blogiversary-and-secret-santa.html

  2. I cannot wait to read it, either! No copies available at the library yet, however, and buying it is out of the budget for the next few months

  3. @Anatacia: oh, that's too bad. My library has it on order (and I'm on hold for it!), but it's not in yet. I actually contacted Fireside Books (http://www.firesidebooksandgifts.com), where Beth is having her belated book launch tomorrow, and am ordering an autographed copy. I'm just really intrigued by the dual cover thing, so I'm actually buying a physical copy. Almost unheard of for me LOL
