Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Genre: YA

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Goodreads Says: 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. 

Half Audio-Half Read

Seventeen year old Amy Martin has been frozen along with her mom and dad. They've been put on a ship named Godspeed and are headed to a planet which is 300 years in the future. Imagine her surprise when she is thawed out and instead of being on the planet she's still aboard a ship full of mystery and secrets.


8 mins into the audio book and I was literally saying WOW! By the end of the book I was at a million WOW's. Beth Revis has one heck of an imagination. I don't want to give any details from the book because I believe it would all be a spoiler. All the new words used, the world created on Godspeed, the past and the future, all of it is so brand new that it would be an injustice to mention any of it in a review. You have to experience it for the first time when you read the book.

This ship is full of mystery and secrets and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. I think one of the things I liked most about the book was that it wasn't predictable at all.

I will say ONE thing...My new word is FREX! ;-)

Ms. Revis you have done a wonderful job and I am in awe of your creativity. I've already started the second book and I'm already at "WOW" and "No frexing way!"!!

Until next time Y'all!
