I may be able to join in this buddy read with you guys!! I haven't read the second one yet, but I read the first one and loved it!! I am planning on reading A Million Suns next, and I will order a copy of Shades of Earth, which I am hoping will come in by the day that you girls are planning to read it!!! I am crossing my fingers that I will be able to get this book in time! :) I really want to read this book with you guys!! And I hate the new covers for these books too!! I thought that the first covers for these books were far prettier! :)


message 9: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments Yay!!! Tori!! We will wait for you then! I'd love for you to get to join!

Book 2 is so good!!! it's a huge adventure!!

Oh, and the cover :[ honestly, who picked that?!?!

Aren't the other countries' covers prettier!?! :D


message 10: by [deleted user] (new)

Is book two better than the first one?

And thanks for waiting for me!! I will hopefully have this book by next week!! :)

And YES the other countries' covers are soo pretty!!

I don't know why they decided to change them because I am pretty sure that everyone loved the original ones better than these ones.


message 11: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments You know, book 2 is just a different book.
It's better in some ways and not in others.

There is also a novella!!!
But you have to read book 2 first!!

Novella As They Slip Away (Across the Universe, #0.5) by Beth Revis is here: http://www.scribd.com/doc/119788927/A...


message 12: by [deleted user] (new)

Wait... Do I have to read book 2 before I read the novella?


message 13: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments oh wait...maybe not! LOL! for some reason I thought you did....let me look again!


message 14: by [deleted user] (new)

Okay let me know! I don't want to read it yet if it will spoil book 2, but I am really looking forward to reading it!! :)


message 15: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments well, I guess you don't - but I thought book 2 talked more about some of the people in the novella. for me, it gave insight that I appreciated after the book.

I don't know if I would have enjoyed it as much before...if that makes sense...


message 16: by [deleted user] (new)

That totally makes sense! I guess I might just read it after book two, just so that I can understand it a bit better. And thanks for letting me know about this novella, or else I would have never known about it!! :)


message 17: by [deleted user] (new)

I just placed an order for this book, so I am hoping that it will either come in on Wednesday or Thursday of this week!

Trisha | 25051 comments yay Tori!!!!! :D This is so bittersweet. I absolutely love this series.

I'm ready to see what happens next, but I'm so sad to end the series. I'm going to start this book in about 30 min.

Trisha | 25051 comments are you feeling any better?

:(


message 31: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments A bit better now. Thanks. It might be because I rarely have proper breakfast. Just a glass of milk. I might need to take some medicine. Stomachache is a real pain :(


message 32: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments Finished chapter 12
(view spoiler)

I am going to finish Beautiful Redemption first. I have 10 more chapters to go. Then I'll continue.


message 33: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments okay, kids are home today (President's Day in the US. Schools are closed) so I'll start reading soon - need coffee and breakfast first!

Ugh, I'm at a stressful part in the book, it's hard to keep reading! LOL!


message 34: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments 8 was a painful painful chapter

Trisha | 25051 comments chapter 10: I immensely dislike her dad!

But somehow, this planet is kinda scary, don't you think? The animals with saw-like claws...."


oh no!!! Who is this Chris guy??? I want Elder Elder Elder :) LOL

I hate that she isn't fighting for him. I understand she's torn between her parents & loyalty to them but they are totally discounting EVERYTHING the shipborn have been through

:(


message 37: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments I hope she is not going to flirt with this guy or anything.

Amy is not strong enough to defy her parents.

I don't like Amy's father much either.

Gisbelle | 27174 comments Oh one more thing, do you think they can really communicate with people from Sol-Earth?

If people from Sol-Earth have more advanced technology now, they should not have let Godspeed float wander off in space for this long.

Trisha | 25051 comments hmmm..okay, I'm at chapter 25

and...I have some theories

Chris...(view spoiler)

and I think Orion (view spoiler)

and finally, Sol-Earth (view spoiler)

ugh, this book is so hard to read. with every chapter I cringe more. Elder and Amy keep shouldering so much guilt and blame that isn't theirs to shoulder. And they keep not talking about things and...(view spoiler)

lol I can't wait until things start turning around! probably another 100 pages or so....


message 40: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (last edited Feb 19, 2013 05:00AM) (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments you know what, Trisha. I fell asleep after finishing chapter 25. And I dreamt about it! So creepy, yet so cool.

I haven't read your spoiler tagged post yet. That scene in chapter 25 was so scary.


message 41: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments I finished 27.

message 42: by Trisha, lives on coffee (new) - rated it 5 stars

Trisha | 25051 comments oh no! You feel asleep and had dreams about it! ugh, that is scary! LOL! I hope you didn't sleep too bad :(

I'm on page 203, chapter 36...

and I love that we have a new adventure but (view spoiler)

My husband's theory (view spoiler)


message 43: by Gisbelle, Sweet as π (new) - rated it 5 stars

Gisbelle | 27174 comments I really like this book :) This is the only series I have read that all books are equally well-written.

I love your theories! I feel so sorry for people are who still in Godspeed. I hope Elder can do something to help them.

Thinking of those genetic modifying is scary! I can't believe those creatures have been created by human. How messed up that is!

Your husband's theory is pretty cool!

Maybe you've finished it already :P I am in chapter 40.
