Waiting on Wednesday: Shades of Earth by Beth Revis

Hi, everyone!

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Here is this week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection:

TITLE: Shades of Earth
AUTHOR: Beth Revis 
SERIES: Across the Universe, Book #3
PUBLISHER: Razorbill
FORMAT: Hardcover, 400 pages
GENRE: Young Adult, Science Fiction/Dystopia
ISBN: 9781595143990
The final book in the trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis!

Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience. But this new Earth isn't the paradise that Amy had been hoping for. Amy and Elder must race to uncover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. But as each new discovery brings more danger, Amy and Elder will have to look inward to the very fabric of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been meaningless.

Across the Universe was really good, but A Million Suns was even better! A Million Suns is one of my favourite books of this year! I can't wait for the final book in this trilogy!

  1. I am so excited about this book, I can't even put it into words!

    I wish they hadn't changed the cover design.
    The book is going to be so good though. I am just sure of it!

    1. Hi, Madigan! I didn't realize that they changed the cover design. What did the original look like?

  2. I'm really excited to read the end of this series. I really loved both first books, and I can't wait to see what will happen next! Great pick!

    1. Me too, Em! And thanks for leaving the link to your WOW!

  3. Me too! Can't wait so I agree with your choice!

    1. Thanks, Sophia Rose! I hope it's as good as A Million Suns!

  4. I haven't read this series yet but love scifi so it's definitely on my TBR list. I think it's interesting that you liked the 3rd book the best! What I usually find in a series is that I love the first book and then the rest of them are not quite as good as the first. I don't mind dystopia in my sci-fi and can't really think of any good non-dystopian sci-fi books for you - sorry! Thanks for your comments! I can't wait to read this whole series!

    1. Hi, Marlene. Unfortunately, sometimes that happens...when the rest of the books in a series don't live up to the first. I hope you love this series as much as I do. Just to clarify: I thought the 2nd book in the series was better than the first; I still need to read the third. Thanks for stopping by!
