Gravity by Melissa West Blog Tour

In the future, only one rule will matter: Don’t. Ever. Peek.

Seventeen-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, but instead, Jackson issues a challenge: help him, or everyone on Earth will die. 

Ari knows she should report him, but everything about Jackson makes her question what she’s been taught about his kind. And against her instincts, she’s falling for him. But Ari isn’t just any girl, and Jackson wants more than her 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.

I wasn't entirely sure what to expect when I first started 
Gravity, but it turned out to be such a great, thrilling book! :)

I'm really not a sci-fi person, so I wasn't sure if I would like Gravity, but it kept me entertained the entire time. I loved both the characters and the plot.

The world created was really interesting and the plot was also intense. My favorite part of the book, though, were the characters. I thought Lawrence was a really awesome, friendly guy. He was a great character.  At first, I didn't like Jackson and I was kind of annoyed by him. However, by the end of the book, I liked him a lot more and I thought he and Ari worked so great together.

Ari was my favorite character. She was so strong, with the situation she was put in. I thought she made smart decisions and she was definitely brave. Overall, I'd give Gravity 4 out of 5 flowers. It's a great book that's definitely worth checking out! :)

Author Spotlight

I'm not one of those writers that can claim to have been writing "all my life." I haven't. But I have been reading all of my life. Does that count? Probably not. I'm a Southerner, raised in a tiny town in SC. Then after graduate school, I moved to Atlanta, GA with my husband and daughter.
I have a B.A. in Communication Studies and an M.S. in Graphic Communication, both from Clemson University.  
In addition to all the boring stuff above, I'm addicted to coffee, pretend to like yoga, and am obsessed with shoes. I read frequently, write daily, and adore cooking.
That's about it. Aren't I so ridiculously boring? I need to skydive or something. Hmmm...

  2. I'm dying to read this book! The sic-fi elements you pointed out are interesting to me and if you said that even you that are not so much into sci-fi liked it, I will probably love it =]
