Across the Universe May 9th and Nominations for June!

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.
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

By popular demand we begin Across the Universe on May 9th! 

We do apologize to those who wanted to begin on the 17th, but the votes for May 9th outweighed the votes for the 17th. This is the first and only month that you will have such short notice to obtain a book. Going forward you will know at least three weeks in advance. 

With that being said, we are going to go ahead and start nominations for June's voting. We will stop taking nominations on May 4th. Our schedule will look as followed:

May 1st - 4th: Nominations for June's voting
May 4th - 9th: Voting for June's two books
May 9th - May 17th: Across the Universe by Beth Revis discussions
May 17th - May 31st: Gone by Michael Grant discussions

May 9th: pages 1-62, Chapters 1-9
May 10th: pages 62-126, Chapters 9-20
May 11th: pages 126-186, Chapters 20-33
May 12th: pages 186-248, Chapters 33-47
May 13th: pages 248-306, Chapters 47-58
May 14th: pages 306-364, Chapters 58-71
May 16th: pages 364-398, Chapters 71-81
