What I'm reading?

Glow by Amy Kathleen Ryan

What if you were bound for a new world, about to pledge your life to someone you'd been promised to since birth, and one unexpected violent attack made survival—not love—the issue?

Out in the murky nebula lurks an unseen enemy: the New Horizon. On its way to populate a distant planet in the wake of Earth's collapse, the ship's crew has been unable to conceive a generation to continue its mission. They need young girls desperately, or their zealous leader's efforts will fail. Onboard their sister ship, the Empyrean, the unsuspecting families don't know an attack is being mounted that could claim the most important among them...

Fifteen-year-old Waverly is part of the first generation to be successfully conceived in deep space; she was born on the Empyrean, and the large farming vessel is all she knows. Her concerns are those of any teenager—until Kieran Alden proposes to her. The handsome captain-to-be has everything Waverly could ever want in a husband, and with the pressure to start having children, everyone is sure he's the best choice. Except for Waverly, who wants more from life than marriage—and is secretly intrigued by the shy, darkly brilliant Seth.

But when the Empyrean faces sudden attack by their assumed allies, they quickly find out that the enemies aren't all from the outside

My thoughts
You may have noticed me mention this book once or twice already lol I've been desperate to get my hands on a copy ever since I heard about it a few months ago so you can imagine my excitement when an enexpected early copy dropped through my letterbox from the publishers, I did a bit of a dance that gained me a funny look from my husband!
I've been sying to read it ever since but there are other books I've had to read first but I'll admit to gazing at it longingly on my shelf and now today is the day! lol so yeah I'm real excited, the cover is gorgeous to and it's really soft to, I don't expect this one will take me long to read.

What are you reading?
