Ashley's June Book: Under the Never Sky

First of all, I'd like to apologize for not blogging in a while. Real life caught up to me and I barely had time to sleep and eat. Things have slowed down a little bit now though, so expect quite a few blog entries coming your way soon!

Secondly, in case you missed Paul's post, we're almost to our one-year blogiversary! (Is that a word? It is now.) We have a group on Goodreads now (you can find it here!), and we hope to be adding some cool new things soon too. So stay tuned for all of that fun stuff!

And, without further ado, here's my pre-reading for Under the Never Sky. Which I meant to post a while ago...

Title: Under the Never Sky
Author: Veronica Rossi
Year Published: 2012

Synopsis: Exiled from her home, the enclosed city of Reverie, Aria knows her chances of surviving in the outer wasteland—nicknamed The Death Shop—are slim. If the cannibals don’t get her, the violent, electrified energy storms eventually will. In this dystopia, even the very air she breathes could kill her. Then Aria meets an Outsider named Perry. He’s wild, dangerous—a savage. He’s also her only hope.

Perry needs Aria, too. She alone holds the key to his redemption. And their unlikely alliance will determine the fate of all who live under the never sky.

Why?: I've been looking at this book on Amazon since like November, and have wanted to read it since I read the description. It seems like a different take on a dystopian future, where nature has forced people to retreat to protected areas. Kind of like in The Maze Runner, which I very much enjoyed. And dystopian romances are always fun.

Expectations: I expect there to be quite a bit of adventure and mystery in this novel. Why is Aria exiled? Why does Perry need Aria? What exactly is causing the storms that are kiling everyone and destroying everything?

Judging a book by its cover: The cover has a girl walking through what looks like lightning. So, I assume both will be important. Maybe the girl can control the lightning? Or it has some weird effect on her when she leaves Reverie and goes to the outside?
