  •  This week my Dusty Read is.......A Long Long Sleep!

A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
Hardcover/ 352 pages

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long gone, and Rose— hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire— is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes— or be left without any future at all.

I can't believe I haven't read this yet!! UGH! It sounds amazing, I loved the Disney Sleeping Beauty movie growing up, so to read new/dystopian retelling of it will be awesome! This book has been sitting on my shelf far too long, and the cover, wow it is so pretty. I need to read this one soon! Have you read A Long Long Sleep? What did you think of it? 

What's getting dusty on your shelf?!(:
