Brandon I know right!!?? i agree with you, it drives me up the wall knowing i have to wait so long!!!


message 2: by Erin (new)

Erin Ugh...I just now got into the series, have read both books then realized I have another year to wait til the third. I'm the type of person who likes to read all the books in a series at once, so this is soooooo hard.

"That is just cruel." You're right. Le sigh.


message 3: by Scarlet (new)

Scarlet Heavens It amazes me how people assumed that the author will take Amy and Elder to Centauri-Earth in the second book. I knew I would have to wait for the third one even before the ending, so I am not that much disappointed, but I agree that it is cruel.

Duchess Oh god, just read the third books description oh god oh god yess yesss


message 5: by Sarah (new)

message 6: by Alein (new)

Alein Thank you! I totally agree!


message 7: by Yadi (new)

Yadi the cover is killing me right now its frexing horrible!


the golden witch. Probably will be buying it but REALLY not digging this cover. :(


message 9: by Rebecca (new)

Rebecca I'll buy it because I MUST know what happens but why have they changed the cover design AGAIN! None of my books are going to match. Since the first book ALSO got a new cover for the PB. I'll just take the dust jacket off when I read it and then once it goes on the bookcase I'll just see the spine and not the fugly cover lol.

Dalea Sabrina What the HELL is with this cover? It doesn't look a thing like the other two...and I love the other two!! Seriously, what the hell?!?!


message 11: by Jmbswim (new)

Jmbswim I so agree. That pretty much just sums up my feelings, but I'm going to give reading the book a chance because I HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!!!


message 12: by Dalea Sabrina (new)

Dalea Sabrina Of course I'm going to read it. I'm just SO disappointed by the cover :(


message 13: by Booklover6 (new)

Booklover6 I soooo agree about the cover! Then again, I am absolutely desperate to know what happens in the book so I think I probably will buy it! Thoiugh I don't want to, principles and all that!


message 14: by Mallory (new)

Mallory I'd like to point out that you actually only have to wait 6 months, not a year. Also, if you're so distraught over the ending of the second book, then it shouldn't matter what the cover of the third book looks like. You should want to read it regardless.


message 15: by Skylee (new)

Skylee I actually really like the cover.


message 16: by Sarah (new)

Sarah I agree about the cover, but unfortunately the spanish version- which happens to be much much cooler, is in, well. Spanish. Plus the spanish version has a different name, too. Godspeed- The arrival... personally I think this title/cover is cooler, but of course it is in Spanish- just my luck... But I like how she stuck true with the title themes as in book 1 and 2. :)


Annabelle Marie Veronica I'm not a fan of the cover, but I know some people love it. And while I won't be buying a hard copy of this one, I'll still definitely be reading it. x


message 18: by Iso (new)

Iso M I think this cover might just be the one they are showing right now and not the final cover. Hopefully because this cover doesn't even live close up to across the universe and a million suns! So hopefully this isn't the final cover!

I've read from reliable sources (on the author's facebook) that this is definitely the cover. It lines up with the new covers of the paperback books for Across the Universe and A Million Suns. It's a sad day. :(


message 20: by Dalea Sabrina (new)

Dalea Sabrina Looking at the cover again I guess it's not hideous. I just really dislike it because it's nothing like the others and the others are awesome and better


message 21: by Teak (new)

Teak wow harsh statements...I love the cover! what would you expect it to look like? I mean they are going to be on land! Finally!


Rashika (is tired) i am pretty sure there is going to be another cover.. because the other two books have covers that match this one... so i am pretty sure that there is going to be at least one other cover.


message 23: by Linda (new)

Linda Really? You're concerned about the cover??? I think what's inside is way more important.

Good point.. but hey we all like buying books with pretty covers. :P


Annabelle Marie Veronica Well sure, I'm still going to read it and all. But I would NEVER have picked up this series with that cover. Who wants to read a book with an ugly ass cover?

Those that don't judge a book by it's cover. Dur. :P


Annabelle Marie Veronica Covers are meant to be judged! If they weren't they'd all be white. ;)

Some of the most beloved books in literature were published without covers. Jane Austen, Sir Walter Scott, F Scott Fitzgerald; Charles Dickens' novels were mostly published in a newspaper.

The new cover scheme was to attract male readers, now that i think about it i am glad they did it because this is a good series and it deserves to be loved by everyone. plus i still wanna buy the last book :P even with the cover.
