On to my Bookanista Shout out for A MILLION SUNS by Beth Revis


Release Date: 1/10/2012


Basic Blurb: (from Amazon)
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 liked it: 


WOW! This book is easily one of my favorites! This is one of those rare occasions when the sequel SURPASSES the original! Revis has really found her stride in this series with this latest book. Packed with adventure, mystery and a building sense of doom, I found myself unable to put the book down! When I eventually did have to stop reading (you know, for work...or food...or life...) I found myself thinking and thinking and thinking about it. LOVE IT when that happens. Can not wait for more from Ms. Revis!!!


What are you reading these days?

    1. I love that book (and series) so much! ATU was easily my favorite book last year (perhaps my favorite YA book ever!) and I devoured AMS as well.

      Plus I got to meet Beth when she came to town and gave her a Harley pony ^_^ She's the sweetest person ever.

    Collide and Transcend in Audio Format

    Wow - it has too long since my last post! A lot has happened over the past few months. First, I've decided to re-launch my entire backlist. What does this mean? New covers, new interiors, and, in some cases, new and expanded stories. It also means releasing the books in audiobook format. Audiobooks are something I've wanted to do for a while. And now it is finally happening.

    In December, I released the audiobook formats of Transcend and Collide - each with new covers and new interiors in the digital and print versions. I plan on revealing the new covers for the rest of the Solomon Experiment series (the sequels to Collide) later this month, with the actual books coming in late Feb and March/April.

    In Spring, I will begin the re-launch of the Requiem series, including significantly expanded stories for books 2 and 3, new covers, new titles and audiobook formats.

    I don't plan on only re-releasing books in 2016. In addition to the two new books in the Solomon Experiments, I ha…

    It's Release Day!

    Wow! This post was a long time coming. My 6th novel (and 17th book), OUTBREAK, book #2 in the Solomon Experiments, is officially out day.

    This is a special release for me. I had struggled to find my fiction mojo after my last book. Related to what was going on in my personal life and some residual feelings about my mother's death, it took me nearly 2 years to reconnect with my inner artist. The struggle was worth it, though, as I figured out some things about myself as an artist that I needed.

    Now, I hope all of you will enjoy the book as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

    OUTBREAK is the continuing story of Dakota, an 18 year old girl wrestling with her new awareness of abilities that make her the target of a black ops group. Here is a little more about the story:


    Dakota never thought she’d crave her old life in Boresville. Not until the Creator’s assassins came and took everything, everyone, she cared about—all except for David. He’s the only thing she has left, and he wants he…
