Monday Reads: A Million Suns (review)

I just finished another wonderful YA read. I'm not sure why I have only been reading YA for the past few weeks.

My weekend read was:

A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Synopsis: Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.

It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.

But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.

In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.

Thoughts: I often find that many sequels will fall flat. Authors will write an amazing beginning to a series and leave you wanting more. Then when you read the next book you are left disappointed. This book did not fall into this category. The story was quick paced and I loved seeing the characters grow while facing new challenges that were presented to them. This is a great dystopian read. I have really been enjoying the dystopian books. If you have others to recommend, you know what to do!

This is a sequel to last year's Across the Universe, which is another amazing book. You have to read the first one before reading A Million Suns.

I'm glad you enjoyed it, I did too! You're right, it didn't disappoint as a sequel. I won't even point out the clue-solving was just plot filler, because I actually had fun with that and the mystery behind it was interesting. The end really kept me reading, I couldn't finish it fast enough.
Dystopian books are trending, it seems (where are the dystopian vampires?!).

We will probably have to wait another whole year for the next book, but it'll be worth it I'm sure! :)
