      “Let me make sure I understand—you want me to lie to my dad, turn my back on my species, my people? Do you really expect me to trust an Ancient over my own family?”“No, but I hope you’ll surprise me.”I fix my gaze on Jackson. “Consider it done.”I have no words.This is your typical teenaged-heroine-saves-the-world book that really doesn't have anything new to add the standard range of YA tropes:- The main character is really smart (but makes tremendously dumb choices)- Her love in [...]

      NOTE: I read the early arc version - not the finished arc.I was never really into aliens (until I read Obsidian!) and then I became quite 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 [...]

      Free on Kindle today!UK - amazon/Gravity-TakinUS - amazon/Gravity-Taking-I don’t want to do this. Please don’t make me do this.And then the smooth cloth slides over my eyes, blinding me. I relax for only a moment, then the patch suctions around my eyes as though laced into the bone, and I feel it against my temple, pressing, digging in. I want to pull away. I scream out for Mom to help me and hear her say over and over that it’s okay, everything’s okay.This was a really good Sci-Fi / Ali [...]

      Gravity was such an addicting read! I finished the book in one day, two sittings. When I picked it up at my bookstore I thought it sounded intriguing and noticed it had a gorgeous cover, with a praising quote from Jennifer L. Armentrout I might add. Basically, I had high expectations and they were met.The beginning started with such a unique bang I couldn't help but be pulled in. The taking is kind of creepy and different enough to make anyone know more. I truly felt sympathy for all the 10 year [...]

    • Heather says:

      LOVE this book. Think HUNGER GAMES meets the television show "V" with a hint of MATCHED and you'll have a pretty good feel for Melissa's series.

    • Ariana says:

      Dear Ari, You better live up to my name!!! (^.^)FULL REVIEW:Oh, it felt so good, so personal to read my name in this story.Ari Ari Every time I read this name it filled me with joy and my heart started to beat a bit faster. It was like the book had been written just for me.Well, you can’t blame me for all this excitement, because it’s not like it rains all the time with characters that share my name (and if you’re wondering – which you are totally not, but I don’t care – “Ari” is [...]

    • equilibri says:

      - Incoherent plot, the premise lacks believability, the events and circumstances are never properly explained- No resolution to the story- Lack of proper background or world-building- Incredibly dull, weak characters- Cheesy, nausea-inducing insta-love

    • Stacia (the 2010 club) says:

      3.5 stars. This cover. It invokes the theme of2001 : A Space Odyssey (the music intro), doesn't it? Uh yeahe book wasn't quite 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 quite give off the same "what a massive galaxy to traverse" feel). I actually liked this book quite a bit. It was fun! My not-super-high rating is only reflective of me wishing for more sc [...]

      11/19/15 - I haven't read this one yet, but it's been on my TBR forever (b/c ALIENS, I love 'em). Anyway, it's been a FREEBIE for several days now. FYI. amazon/dp/B00Q1ZIZ3W/?

    • Giselle says:

      While I do love and enjoy sci-fi novels, I have rarely come about any that involve Aliens. I can actually only recall 2: I Am Number Four, and Obsidian. Both were good and a great change from the same old. In Gravity, we get another unique addition into the genre. The world Melissa has created has some holes and grey areas, but overall, the mix of dystopian and aliens is a great way to create an original post-apocalyptic world with very neat, but also very scary, aspects. We begin this book with [...]

      AFTER READING:OH MY CHEESE!!!!!!This book was even better than I expected!!BEFORE READING:This book sounds so ABSOLUTLELY AMAZING!! XDFirst off it has aliens!ALIENS!!

    • Laura says:

      It may sound cliche, but GRAVITY is one of those special books that hooks you from the first page and just doesn't let you go. The only world that Ari Alexander has ever known, is one in which humans are forced to play host to the Ancients. This alien race has such a powerful and frightening control of Earth, that nobody is allowed to know what they look like, where they came from or in what dark corners of the planet they hide. Most people are fine with that, but not Ari. Of course, she'd never [...]

    • Grace says:

      There are very few books that truly make me want to bail, hinting that there is no redemption to be found in later pages. This was one of them. I got it off of 's Daily Deals push, and for me, it was awful.Everything happens at once, there's absolutely no build, which means everyday logic gets totally bizarre: there's a war on! But also school! But things are blowing up! But we still have to go to training! Things just don't connect, it all flies in the face of logic, ESPECIALLY when you conside [...]

    • Jasprit says:

      Gravity had the promise and potential to provide a fired-up action packed read, but unfortunately fell flat in a lot of places. Ari has always known she’s going to go to great places; she’s legally born to be a commander and has been training nearly all her life to get there. Her life’s been practically set up for her, she will marry best friend and the president’s son Law and through her training the end is within her sights. But things come crashing down around her, when she soon disco [...]

    • Cody says:

      This was such a great alien book; I’m now actively searching for more to read. After the awesomeness that was the incredibly popular Lux series (Hi Daemon!), I was a little nervous about reading Gravity because no matter how much you want to enjoy a book if it’s similar to another series that you love, it’s sadly nothing in comparison. However I can happily say that Gravity was able to completely stand out on it’s own and rarely gave me the feeling of it being too similar to other books. [...]

    • Djezelle says:

      Еще один случай, когда аннотация такая заманчивая и буквально кричит «это-то-что-ты-искала», но в итоге начиная читать, ты получаешь совершенно кое-что другое. И это «другое» мне совершенно не понравилось.Вот честно, некоторых авторов хочется схватить за шкирку и тыкать в и [...]

    • Jennifer says:

      Don't ever peak. In 2140, aliens, called Ancients, have come to earth. Well actually they travel through portals. Each night, Ari, as well as everyone else, must put on their patch blindfold that paralyzes them, and allow the Ancient assigned to them to enter their bedroom for The Taking. One night Ari loses her patch and opens her eyes to see her classmate Jackson hoovering above her. Ancients are not supposed to be living undercover and she knows she should report him to her father, The Comman [...]

    • Christina (A Reader of Fictions) says:

      Originally posted on A Reader of Fictions.I am, of course, inextricably drawn to all dystopias, but the gorgeous cover on this one bumped it up my TBR pile. Plus, the fact that it's about aliens intrigued me. A straight up science fiction plot line sounded refreshing and like it left room open for serious originality. Gravity did not turn out to be quite what I was hoping for, but still proved an engaging read.The world building of Gravity left me with copious amounts of questions. For example, [...]

    • Ella says:

      Blah I couldn't even finish it and I take finishing books prettttty seriously so that's saying something. The premise really caught my eye and I was excited to see where it was going but then it crashed and burned not so magnificently and imploded on itself and a little all over me too. The concept of the the taking was fantastic but then it fell into the realm of insta love which I can sometimes handle but here it was forced, awkward, not believable at all, and not to mention about as steamy as [...]

    • Carlos says:

      Typical YA dystopian book, earth has been destroyed , humans have become harder , meaner, willing to do things they wouldn't do before , aliens have taken over , we can't beat them but we will try . but oh wait 2 teenagers can change the whole world , stop the world and fall in love at the same time . ohh an wait the girl has another love interest. Anyway the story is entertaining enough if you don't take all the aspects mentioned above very serious . It's a fast read and it is a trilogy so at l [...]

    • Christina (Ensconced in Lit) says:

      I've had this book on my to read list for a while, so when it went on sale on , I knew it was time.Gravity by Melissa West is about Ari, a teenaged girl, who lives on an Earth that has been taken over by an alien race called Ancients. Every night, an Ancient goes into each human room and takes antibodies from them so they can co-exist on earth. There has been a treaty between species that allows this to happen. Ari loses her mask that sedates and paralyzes her during the Taking, and she realizes [...]

      This was a lot of fun. And surprisingly violent!

      Four Stars: A thrilling, heart pounding beginning to a series.Ari panics, she can't find her patch. Her Ancient is coming for the Taking and if she doesn't have the Patch over her eyes, serious repercussions will follow. It is too late he is coming. She flings herself on her bed, terrified to move or breathe. The Ancients come every night to take the necessary nutrients from their human counterparts. As he takes from her body, she can't resist a peek, and she is shocked to find the handsome Jack [...]

      *A copy was provided for review purposes*Gravity literally made me feel like I was floating; it made me lose my breath at certain points, and had me squealing like a love-struck girl. Everything from the out-of-this-world plot to the witty dialogue was able to hook my interest. It had me ADDICTED. I really loved how the beginning of the book didn’t start off slow but just delved into the juicy parts and got even more interesting from there onwards. As for the plot, like I said before, it was A [...]

    • Anatea Oroz says:

      This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea's Bookshelf.Oh, this book! First, you see this beautiful cover that gets you intrigued. Then you read the synopsis and you see this line "Don't. Ever. Peek." and you're like super, super excited to read this book, and then you realize there are aliens in it and before you know it, you're hyper to read it! At least that's how I felt.Well, this book is everything I expected and even more! It is the year 2140, and after the WWIV, the aliens, or The Anci [...]

    • Angela says:

      I've read a lot of alien books I mean A LOT and this one wasnt my fav. I think it might be because I'm coming down from a book hangover from my last read but either way this book was just blahThis book didn't just let down aliens it's probably the biggest book let down I've experienced all year.This is your typical teen girl saves the world when really her military daddy should have been doing his job read that really doesn't add anything new to the ever growing Ya. I HATED how she described ali [...]

    • Rebecca says:

      THIS IS A 'REVIEW' WRITTEN WHEN I WAS 14, DON'T READ IT, ITS A BUNCH OF FANGIRLLY MESS, UNLESS YOU WANT TO CRINGE, READ ON- Hopefully I'll reread it in the future and give an actual review and rating, ignore 14 year old RebeccaHoly.Shit.This book is amazing.Even though it's pretty short, it's honest to god one of the best books I've read in a long time. I NEED THE SEQUEL!!!!!! Is this a trilogy or a series though?

    • Turquoise says:

      Seriously, people, authors are just taking this dystopian thing a bit too far now.

    • Laura says:

      I got Gravity as an offer. One of those days when randomly decides to lower book prices and the Kindle edition of this one was literally 1€ so I just had to buy it. I didn't know if I would like it but it sounded cool and gave it a try. Expectations met!THE WORLD: We are situated on a dystopian world where after World War IV (yeah fourth, I don't know what happened in the third one) Earth was destroyed because of the nuclear weapons. The remaining humans were then invaded by an alien species [...]
