Waiting On Wednesday #73: These Broken Stars, by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

This is a weekly event hosted by
It showcases future releases which
we book bloggers are eagerly anticipating!!

Here's my choice for this week!

(Starbound #1)
Hardcover, 400 pages
Disney Hyperion
December 10, 2013
Romance, Science Fiction,
Young Adult Fiction

From the Goodreads Synopsis

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

When I first saw this cover,
I felt such a rush of aesthetic delight
that I immediately went to
Goodreads to find out more about
this luscious-looking book!
I first discovered it on the blog
where Jen, one of the participants
in my "Shelf Candy Saturday" meme,
had included it in her post for last week.
Then I read the synopsis,
and I knew I had to own this novel!!!
The story sounds very exciting
and mysterious...
I need to find out just what (or who) it is
they encounter on that planet!!
(Perhaps one of my long-lost cousins
from the Vulcan branch of the family?
Live long and prosper, Spock!)

What wonderful and exciting book(s)
are you eagerly anticipating
this week?

  4. The story and and the interaction between the characters may me more interesting then the mystery of the planet. Of course when you read this I am sure you will not reveal the secret but maybe you will tell us if it was worth the journey.

    Watch out for those Vulcan relatives, they are not as innocent as they seem!
