Book blurb (from goodreads):
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.

After using Across the Universe as my example on Monday, I thought it fitting that Shades of Earth be this week's Waiting on Wednesday. AtU was basically the book that brought me back to reading--and eventually writing--scifi. Whatever issues I might have with it, I still loved the crap out of it, and it's one of my favorite YA SF books ever. So, of course, I can't wait for the final installment in the series.
Gotta admit, though, I loved the cover for A Million Suns, and I'm sad the third book won't match my set :P
Happy Wednesday, guys ♥
