My teasers
I'm starting to see why Eldest was so ... so desperate.
...
When I'm done talking, I realize how silent she's been the whole time.
"Amy?" I ask softly.
She meets my eyes.
"Does this mean ... can I wake my parents up now?" 
Seriously? It's the same story as it was with the first one. It had been sitting on my shelf forever and I really have no excuse for not picking it up any sooner. It's surprisingly fast-paced and I'm taken aback by some of the revelations that have happened throughout the first 81 pages. So far so good.

p. 52-53 of A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) by Beth Revis

  1. I really need to get around to reading this series, I am one of the only people in the Blogoverse who haven't! I'm happy this second instalment is working out well for you!

  3. Great teaser! Now I'm doubting my decision to never even give this series a try.

  4. I read the first one and it was very slow paced for my liking. I'm glad that is not the case with this one and I may pick it up and complete the series.

  8. "A Million Suns" was full of twists at every turn! I never would have thought that *that* was what happened, and I heard Beth Revis originally wanted to make "Across the Universe" into a standalone but she was notified of a mistake (something related to *that*) and was inspired to write about it in the next book.
