Waiting on Wednesday: These Broken Stars by Annie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

 “Waiting on Wednesday” is weekly event, hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine, that highlights books that people can't wait to get their hands on. Here is mine for this week! ;)

This week, the book that I am counting down the days for is These Broken Stars by Annie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.

These Broken Stars (Starbound, #1)

Synopsis from Goodreads:

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. 

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

Expected publication: December 10th, 2013 from Disney Hyperion

Why I'm waiting:

I just love books that have a space setting.  I can't get enough of them.  So when I spotted These Broken Stars online, I marked the release date on my calendar.  There is also the added element of traveling to a different planet.  I'm looking forward to seeing how imaginative and inventive that planet will be.   

Are you looking forward to reading  These Broken Stars too?  What are you waiting for this week? Let me know in the comments below!

Come back on Saturday for this weeks edition of "Stacking the Shelves"!

Stay nerdy,


I have been drooling over this book forever now! Cant wait to get my hands on it, great pick.
