Across the Universe and its Awesome Packaging

Being a book blogger, I love love love getting books in the mail. What's even better is when it's a book you really want to read AND you're not expecting it. I got an ARC of Across the Universe by Beth Revis in the mail today and I was practically overjoyed. I was not expecting it at all and I've been wanting to read it for a few months now when I first heard about it. I wanted to share with you some pictures of the book and the awesome packaging it came in.

Here's the packaging! It's just like the normal stuff you get except it's all silver and shiny, like a spaceship (hm, I'm sensing a theme here). I don't know if you can read the sticker but it says "THE JOURNEY BEGINS" and then 1.11.11 is the date the book is released. I love that someone when out of their way to get cool packaging and stickers just for these books. :)

Here's the actual book. The cover is gorgeous. This is a paperback but on the back it shows you what the hardcover will look like. It will have a reversible book jacket (which is the coolest thing ever): one side is the normal cover, and the other is a blueprint of the ship.

This is the inside cover of Across the Universe and is the blueprint of the ship. I'm sure this will come in handy while reading the book.

As you can tell, I am so excited to read this book! But what makes it even better are the fun stuff that comes along with it: the packaging, the illustrations, etc. I feel like such a nerd being excited over this but I don't care :)

Hey Megan, thanks to this post (and its pictures!), I have figured out that a copy of Across the Universe has been sent to my home address (not my school address). So thanks for that!
