Waiting on: Shades of Earth by 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.

Mmkay, firstly: Gross. Hideous cover. I may have to e-book this one or borrow it from the library or something. WHY would they change such a beautiful, beautiful series of covers to THIS? And right before the last book in the series. Get it together, Razorbill. Make it stop.
More importantly, though, it's time for Amy and Elder to get on solid ground and fall deeply into love with one another on Centauri-Earth, because they both belong together forever and ever. And I cannot wait to find out exactly what awaits them on this planet. I hope it's monsters, because everything is more exciting with monsters.

Shades of Earth will be released January 13, 2013 by Razorbill.
Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine.


  1. Cover is perfect , i like it . Thank you :)

  2. I hate the cover so much. It looks nothing like the others which are so awesome! Also, I can't wait either! HURRY NOW PLEASE. Great choice.

  3. Amy! Elder! WHAT WILL HAPPEN!?!?!?!

  4. It made me so sad that they changed up the covers because I LOVED the original covers for the first two books.

  5. I'm so excited for this book! And I'm liking the new cover now ... I hated them at first, but after reading Beth Revis explain them, it all makes sense!

    Great pick!

  6. I still haven't read the first one in this series - it's sitting patiently on my shelf, waiting for me to have some time (and motivation) to get my YA sci-fi act together. I agree with you on the cover, though... blergh. Nice pick!

    If you'd like, you can check out my WoW here.

  7. I for one adore this crazy nerdy cover. SCI FI FO LYFE.
