ACROSS THE UNIVERSE Giveaway!


Today I want to celebrate the paperback release of Beth Revis' ACROSS THE UNIVERSE! I've known Beth for a long time now and not only is she a fantastic writer who isn't afraid to delve into deep issues, but she's been a great friend to me over the years. She was such a support to me when I moved from Korea to the States and dealing with the adjustments. Beth truly is a beautiful person. It's evident in how she treats people and the heart she has for her readers. I can only say wonderful things about her.
If you haven't heard about her awesome science fiction set in space, here's a little blurb:

A murder mystery in space…

Romance set in the future…

Dystopian with a fresh twist…

Thought provoking and introspective…

Action-packed page turner…


ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, written by Beth Revis, takes the reader on an adventure set in a spaceship bound for a new planet. Seventeen year-old Amy, frozen with her parents to be part of the group to land on this new planet, wakes up 50 years too early. And it’s not a computer glitch. It was done on purpose. As Amy deals with the culture shock of being on a spaceship with very different rules, she also is on the hunt to discover who is unplugging—and killing—the frozens. Because her parents might be next.

 

I know. It's full of awesomeness. And I'm giving away two paperback copies! But that's not all. Because January 10, 2012, the sequel, A MILLION SUNS, will be released. So I will be giving away a preordered hardcopy too! And I think it's even better than ACROSS THE UNIVERSE. Ohhhhh!!!!!

Comment below to enter. You can get 1 extra point if you recommend the book to your local librarian, 1 extra point if you tweet the contest, and 1 extra point if you blog about the contest.



The three winners will be announced on Dec. 11th!
Good luck!

I would absolutely love to win this. *-* I've been wanting to read Across the Universe for months and months--the premise is incredible, the cover is gorgeous, the reviews are positive, and the author is awesome.

I actually just recommended this to my librarian two weeks ago--she was looking to acquire some new books and asked me for any suggestions. I gave her an enormous list. <_<

Oh my gosh, you are being so generous thank you so much! It would be the best present ever to receive any one of the books you're giving away, since I love Beth Revis so much. I retweeted your comment about the contest, and best of luck to all who entered! Thanks once again for this amazing opportunity! :)
Also just wanted to say that I had my school librarian order this book for our library! I think all the messages and issues discussed in Beth Revis's books are so relatable and important; it's a great lesson for all to learn. Plus, the cover itself is so gorgeous it will look perfect up on our "recommended shelf." XO :)

I don't know if this will win me the extra point but I AM a librarian and as soon as I read the write up on Across the Universe I insisted we get it. A Million Suns is now on order too. I love that our library has it but would love to have my own copy.
