As for reading, I’ve just started on Lifer with Beck Nicholas. I’m only one chapter in and I am already pulled into the mystery of Asher’s world. I cannot wait to read more! Find links to buy your copy through Beck’s site at: http://www.becknicholas.com/
Asher is a Lifer, a slave aboard the spaceship Pelican. A member of the lowest rung of society, she must serve the ship’s Officials and Astronauts as punishment for her grandparents’ crimes back on Earth. The one thing that made life bearable was her illicit relationship with Samuai, a Fishie boy, but he died alongside her brother in a freak training accident. Still grieving for the loss of her loved ones, Asher is summoned to the upper levels to wait on Lady, the head Official’s wife and Samuai’s mother. It is the perfect opportunity to gather intel for the Lifers’ brewing rebellion. There’s just one problem—the last girl who went to the upper levels never came back. On the other side of the universe, an alien attack has left Earth in shambles and a group called The Company has taken control. Blank wakes up in a pond completely naked and with no memory, not even his real name. So when a hot girl named Megs invites him to a black-market gaming warehouse where winning means information, he doesn’t think twice about playing. But sometimes the past is better left buried. As Asher’s and Blank’s worlds collide, the truth comes out—everyone has been lied to.
This book was amazing. If you liked Matched by Ally Condie or The 100 by Kass Morgan you will LOVE Lifer (OMG it's so good). The elements of sci-fi are carried out wonderfully, the YA romance is just right, and the mystery is timed perfect with the plot. Two POVs allow for the reader to see the two worlds as they get closer and closer into melding into one. The story leaves you on an upturn, so you're left excited to see what happens next, and not bummed that you have to wait. I cannot wait for a sequel to see what happens with Asher and Davyd!
