Waiting on Wednesday (18)


This week I'm waiting for...
Shades of Earth (Across the Universe, #3)
Shades of Earth (Across the Universe #3) by Beth Revis
Release Date: January 15, 2013
Amy and Elder have finally left the oppressive walls of the spaceship Godspeed behind. They're ready to start life afresh--to build a home--on Centauri-Earth, the planet that Amy has traveled 25 trillion miles across the universe to experience. But this new Earth isn't the paradise that Amy had been hoping for. Amy and Elder must race to uncover who--or what--else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. But as each new discovery brings more danger, Amy and Elder will have to look inward to the very fabric of what makes them human on this, their most harrowing journey yet. Because if the colony collapses? Then everything they have sacrificed--friends, family, life on Earth--will have been meaningless.

This trilogy has been absolutely breathtaking with endless twists and I am eagerly waiting for it to arrive in my hands. But, I absolutely freakin' hate the cover. WHAT IS IT?! Let's look at the previous covers.

I preferred the old covers! They're so pretty! The new covers fit the book but I don't think it would catch my eye in a bookshop.

Leave a link to your WoW in the comments below and I'll check it out!

Have a great week,
Sam :D

  11. Great pick! I totally can't wait to find out what happens next! Not many peeps seem to like the new covers but I kinda do. I can totally understand why they don't like them. But the new covers really do fit the storyline better IMO. I just hate that I have to buy them all over again.

  12. I prefer the before covers.
    p.s that dog is smart!
