Okay, I'm just getting back into the groove of things since it was a lonnnnng weekend and I am trying to be a productive member of society, but epically failing at it. The weekend started on a Thursday(for me anyways!) when I traveled to Forest City, NC to attend Beth Revis' Across the Universe Party (Which was supposed to be Tuesday, but the Snow Gods came in on Monday and said no way, we're going to play tricks on you all week. Thanks Guys, thanks.) I picked up the Novel Thoughts guys, Jeremy and Jeffery West and we all headed to get our geek on.
Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii Beth! You look AH-Mazinggggggggggg!
There were refreshments, yummy amazing refreshments (OMG LOOK! Omnomnom!) like those cupcakes with the yummy stars.
Beth teased us, I mean read from the first chapter of her book(Which if you dont have by now, you are the lamez!)
She answered questions from the audience, and we all learned a bit more background of the book
OMG moment, Stephanie Perkins (of Anna and the French Kiss fame) was there! Yes, Anna and the French Kiss' authoress, Stephanie Perkins was there! (Did I mention that I am completely freaking out at this point in life? Did I?!?!)
But it was a good night had by all.

For those of you are nerds(like me!) it's binary day....for those of you who are book nerds(also like me!) today is the launch of Beth Revis' long awaited book, Across the Universe is out in stores today!
From Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone--one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship--tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.
Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming.
Sounds awesomesauceness, right? IT gets better. There is an official ATU website that takes you into the depths of the ship, exploring the different levels, which is great, imagining where everything is.
Even More Goodies....
Exclusive Video with Beth Revis (Isn't she a dollface?)
And and and.... the first 111 pages up of Across the Universe for your reading enjoyment! Holy sweetness, Batman! I am all over that like a cheap suit!
So readers, please read this novel. I know as soon as the roads are clear, I am heading for Borders to pick up a copy!
