Weekend Reading: Shades of Earth & Incarceron

What are you reading this weekend?  In the queue for reading this weekend is finishing up Beth Revis' Shades of Earth: An Across the Universe Novel, which is shaping up to be quite the adventurous read. A perfect conclusion to the thrilling, page turning series!

Also in the queue is a classic favorite YA genre, Incarceron by Catherine Fisher.  This read looked too good to pass up, especially with the spellbinding synopsis by Goodreads:

Incarceron -- a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology -- a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber -- chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison -- a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device -- a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born.
Happy weekend reading! :-)
