Fresh Batch (January 13th – 19th)

Posted by

Exclusively titled for Xpresso Reads, Fresh Batch features the hottest releases of this upcoming week.

Flavor of the week:
Shades of Earth
Beth Revis
Series: Across the Universe #3
Publication date: January 15th 2013
by Razorbill

The final book in the  New York Times bestselling trilogy, perfect for fans of Battlestar Galactica and Prometheus!

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 Amy had been hoping for. There are giant pterodactyl-like birds, purple flowers with mind-numbing toxins, and mysterious, unexplained ruins that hold more secrets than their stone walls first let on. The biggest secret of all? Godspeed‘s former passengers aren’t alone on this planet. And if they’re going to stay, they’ll have to fight.

Amy and Elder must race to discover who–or what–else is out there if they are to have any hope of saving their struggling colony and building a future together. They will have to look inward to the very core 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 for nothing.


Across the Universe series:

Beth Revis wrote her first books as a student in classrooms, when the professors did not hold her interest and she jotted down stories instead of taking notes. Beth writes science fiction and fantasy novels for teens. Her debut novel, ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, will be published by Razorbill/Penguin in Spring 2011. Beth is represented by Merrilee Heifetz at Writers House.

    I’ve read uses for boys but I don’t have any of the others yet. Think I might get books 2 and 3 from the across the universe series, and vortex, and I should be getting a loaned copy of level 2 to read 🙂
    Hope you’re having a great weekend 🙂

    WHAT? Shades of Earth is finally here? O_O WOHOOO!!! A Milion Suns is next on my list to be read then. I have been waiting for so long to read it, because I didn’t want to wait for the last book after finishing the second one, so yay! Thanks for this meme, Giselle. HAVE A GREAT FREAKING DAY, DOLL!!!!

    I still have to read across the universe, the first book, but the third one looks pretty cool. Nothing on this list that I’ve been really excited for, but I can’t buy any books at the moment, still on a buying ban! Thanks for posting these by the way, it’s hard to keep track of what’s coming out every week!

    The only one I want this week is Vortex. The next two weeks have too many that I want though lol!! So many books that I haven’t heard of. The Boy sounds really good.

    Nope! Nothing for me this week. Maybe when I get caught up on Across the Universe I might get those, but the rest…nah. I was interested in Level 2 but the amount of religion in that kind of scares me. So I think I might pass.
