Happy Release Day - Across the Universe by Beth Revis

I'm so excited to be participating in this awesome event celebrating the release of Beth Revis' Across the Universe. I have to admit that I have yet to read this book- but all of you who have read it have been all over me to get my hands on it. Now that it is officially out I've got a BN gift card that has Across the Universe written all over it! Even though I haven't read the book yet i'm still able to share some amazing stuff with you. First here's a quick synopsis of the book!

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.

And now for some really fun stuff! Here's is an interview with the one and only Beth Revis- this is the first time it has been put out there and you'll get to hear about Across the Universe and some interesting tidbits about the ship Godspeed!

Now that you've seen the interview, it's time to see the book trailer. This is one of my favorite things that authors do now. Movies get trailers and so should books! This one is pretty amazing- I love the opening visual.
