Reading Update

Hello My Book Peeps, I just wanted to give you all an update on what I've been reading lately. I'm currently reading City Of Ashes by Cassandra Clare as feature under What I'm Reading Now and Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales Of Paranormal Love With short stories from different authors. I just finished re-reading A Walk To Remember by Nicholas Sparks, because I was in a bit of a reading rut. And A Walk To Remember is on my favorite books of all time!! I just happen to have to many books on the brain, anyone else have that problem? The only issue is I have no money at the moment to get them :(. 

However I do plan on reading all of my books I own that need to be read. Also probably will borrowing from the library. 

What are you top summer reads? 

Happy Reading, Ashley

Across The Universe by Beth Revis

Across The Universe by Beth Revis

Released: March 2nd 2011 ( January 11th 2011)
Publisher: Puffin
Series: Across The Universe, Book One
Page Amount: 398, UK Paperback Edition

"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."
-Information from

My Thoughts:

I became 100% percent absorbed in the story. I connected with the two main characters Amy and Elder. Amy is a seventeen year old girl who was frozen 3 centuries ago along with her parents. Elder is a twenty year old boy who grew up on the ship Godspeed. They two meet after Amy is unfrozen… and she is almost killed. Together the two of them try to figure out why and who unplugged Amy and who is still on the lose and act.

There is a lot of emotions going on throughout Across The Universe by Beth Revis. She did an amazing job describing the ship and all the different levels. I loved Amy and Elder. I am looking forward to seeing where this series goes in the next installment A Million Suns which isn’t set to come out until the Spring of 2012.  There is also an third installment sent to come out in 2013.

I hope to see more of Amy and Elder’s relationship evolve into love.Also I won this book from Kristi at The Story Siren. So thank you again Kristi and Beth for letting win this amazing book!!

So with that being said I think you would be crazy not to pick up a copy of Across The Universe NOW!!! 5/5 stars!!!

Hope you enjoyed my review,

-Information from 

My Thoughts:
I would not want to relive the day  I died over and over. But that's exactly what happens to the main character Samantha Kingston, a popular girl with the best group of friends in school and the boyfriend every girl wants. 

Lauren Oliver's writing style is amazing. I was glued from the moment I started reading Before I Fall. I felt about of the story, as if I was Sam and going through what she went through in the story.

I totally recommend you checking this out if you haven't yet, 5/5 stars!

Happy Reading, Ashley
