It’s Tuesday! The wonderful day books are released to the world. The book I’m anticipating this week comes so highly recommended that I pre-ordered it. (I never do that!) These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman will be released Today, Tuesday, December 10, 2013. (So you don’t have to wait long at all!)
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.
I have heard A-MAZ-ING things about this book. It has so many 5 star reviews, I had to pay attention. The cover is gorgeous and people say that the book lives up to the cover so I’m super excited to delve into this one. I’m a sucker for the delicate girl in a harsh terrain with a manly man and of course they fall in love. I’m reading this one as soon as it’s delivered to my front door!
