In the future only one rule will matterDon’t Ever PeekSeventeen year old Ari Alexander just broke that rule and saw the last person she expected hovering above her bed arrogant Jackson Locke the most popular boy in her school She expects instant execution or some kind of freak alien punishment b. NOTE I read the early arc version not the finished arcI was never really into aliens until I read Obsidian and then I became uite obsessed with them When I came across Gravity during it's cover reveal I thought it was the perfect book I mean helloooooo have you seen the cover The summary The killer line 'DON'T EVER PEEK' How can I NOT want this book Obviously I was dying to get my hands on this I had a hell lot of expectations for this book and lemme tell you it exceeded my super high expectations and Don't Ever Peek This book was addicting Like seriously can't stop reading and can't go to sleep addicting I started this on Saturday night read 42% and then finished it in the morning That's how good this book was in my opinion From the very first chapter I was captivated This book starts out with a bang I like how we were thrown in and didn't waste time explaining lots of information and boring us with it all Though I did have a bit of a problem with the explanation of the Ancients later on and the world building but fortunately that didn't take it away from the enjoyment of the book Found out after I read the book that the author and her editor is changing a few bits about the book so I think these issues will be resolved Keep in mind that I read the very early ARC version not the finished ARCI did NOT expect to like Ari as much as I did In fact I adore her so frigging much You ALL know how very picky I am of female characters and than half of them annoy me to death but NOT Ari She's smart and brave and one of those girls you kinda want to be and want to be friends with She's very layered and interesting And you can't help but feel sorry for her obligations and duties that she has to fulfill since she's the Commander's daughter And I really like that her upbringing is different from the rest of YA that I read She's rich kinda spoiled but she doesn't abuse her family's power I just lurve this girlJackson He's now one of my newest book boyfriends notice how the numbers keep going up; I didn't really expect all that character development on him He's very complex Oh but one thing I have to say is that the summary tells you that Jackson is 'arrogant' and you kinda think that he'll be a delicious bad boy Well I think he's not really a bad boy He's of a good guy than a jerk I love both but that's not necessary a bad thing He's funny sexy sometimes sweet which I think people will find refreshing after all the big alpha males out thereThis will definitely be in my top five of 2012 I loved loved loved this book and I already pre ordered it as soon as I finished Woot

Summary Gravity Author Melissa West

Gravity Author Melissa WeHer attention She’s a military legacy who’s been trained by her father and exposed to war strategies and societal information no one can know especially an alien spy like Jackson Giving Jackson the information he needs will betray her father and her country but keeping silent will start a war. 35 stars This cover It invokes the theme of 2001 A Space Odyssey the music intro doesn't it Uh yeahthe book wasn't uite that epic Boo Even so I was still kind of vibing on Gravity in spite of there being a severe loss of interplanetary stuffs traveling across worlds through the use of trees doesn't uite give off the same what a massive galaxy to traverse feel I actually liked this book uite a bit It was fun My not super high rating is only reflective of me wishing for sci fi and not at all due to a lack of enjoyment But first a gripe Why have most recent YA space andor alien books been showcasing like paranormal romance instead of sci fi Even though I like The Lux series it's always bothered me that the books read like pnr and not sci fi Why use aliens for your creatures if you're going to write pnrGranted I think that Gravity tried a lot harder than Lux did at incorporating sci fi elements There is something of a dystopia factor actually happening here There was a definitive use of alternatefuturistic technology so in the second half of the book even though we aren't getting many of the technical explanations for how it all works I'm honestly less concerned about the plausibility of it all than some other readers might be What I mainly care about is that the author would choose to incorporate some ideas which make me feel like I'm reading the genre I had anticipated I think we have a hit and miss thing happening hereIf I were to gauge the greatness of Gravity as a space or alien themed sci fi the number would be low Using the same gauge to determine dystopia or generalized sci fi this wouldn't be so bad it's not like most current YA dystopia is well sketched out these days anyway What works There's a big conflict revolving around which side humans vs ancients is to be trusted Natural instinct would put the reader siding with the humans initially go home team but soon enough you start to wonder if staying loyal to the human race is the way to go I like the potential for what is to come The universe has been opened up and we might get a chance to see of the alien opinion; we might even be able to sympathize with them The entertainment factor is good There are a variety of elements which keep the story moving at a decent pace everything from romance to danger which is leading up to a point where a showdown is bound to eventually happen And for the record I did end up liking the romance element even though I didn't think I would at first because it was handled very pnr obsessive at the start although I liked the way that the author chose to throw the two lead characters together It's that darn forbidden love angle which gets me every time and makes me start to root for the characters Jackson's a cutie with a hidden soft side What doesn't work The book is split into two very distinct halves which aren't woven together as well as I'd like to see The first half is very pnr romancey with a huge focus on the 'hot guy' who is hanging around Ari Readers who were looking for sci fi will probably put the book down before they get to the actual sci fi part Then the second half starts wandering off into politics and intrigue and the readers who were caught up in boy meets girl spin of the first half might end up feeling alienated pun intended by the second half The verdict While I would have preferred less pnr and sci fi I liked the book for what it was and that's what matters most The romance is cute and the potential is there to showcase real conflict in the future I'll definitely be reading on to see what happens next for Ari and Jackson
