Every week I participate in Waiting on Wednesday, which is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine. The point of Waiting on Wednesday is to shed a little light on some upcoming new releases I’m excited about.
I was browsing GoodReads a few weeks ago and stumbled upon These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. I read the summary and immediately fell in love with it!
Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen never should have met. She’s the socialite daughter of the richest man in the galaxy, and he’s a decorated soldier fighting back rebellions on newly terraformed planets. But when the vast luxury spaceliner they’re both traveling on crashes, they find themselves thrown together as the two sole survivors on an alien planet.
As they survive harsh conditions and dwindling supplies—not to mention each other—the two begin to uncover a mystery surrounding the abandoned planet that neither of them could have guessed.
The first in a trilogy, These Broken Stars sets into motion a series of timeless, standalone love stories that span galaxies—and are linked by their shared worlds and one mysterious enemy.
Doesn’t this sound really interesting? Like really, REALLY good?! I know right?! It looks like I’ll have to wait until 2013 for These Broken Stars to be published by Disney-Hyperion though. Will I be able to wait?!
