Waiting on Wednesday #73: Shades of Earth


Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases.

Shades of Earth (Across the Universe #3)
By: Beth Revis
Released: January 15, 2013

"The final book in the trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis! 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." (Summary from goodreads.com)

I'm so excited for Shades of Earth! I love this series and I'm dying to know how it will end. I admit I'm a little disappointed about the cover switch because I'm not crazy about this cover.

  1. I still need to read the first one! :( It's sitting on my shelf, waiting. I loved the first cover too. This new one doesn't appeal to me at all. And of course, I HATE when my book covers don't match. :/

    My W.O.W.

  2. YESSSSSSSSSS I can't wait for this one either. I see random ARCs floating around, and I get so jealous lol. And I hate how they changed the covers. BAD MOVE. If they change the size too, I'll cry.

  4. Friend on Goodreads sent me recommendations for this series a long time ago, but I still did not start it. Shame on me. But I heard only good things about it. Great pick!

  8. Awesome choice!! Shades of Earth was my pick last week! :D I absolutely adore this series. I am also totally bummed out by the new covers. Space art is one of my favourite things in the world and now this is just... lame. And mismatching books in a series is doubly lame!

  14. I have the first two books, but haven't read them yet. I'm really sad about the covers too. Now when I get the third one it won't match, so I may as well just get it for nook. :(

  15. I really need to catch up with this series! I'm not a fan of this cover either, I wish they'd waited until this one was released before switching the covers, as I hate having covers that don't match. Great pick!
