It's been a good long while since I posted a Waiting On Wednesday, but I'm trying to get back into the habit of it, even if it's not weekly, I want to post this meme more regularly.
So, without further ado, this week the book I'm waiting on is, These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.
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.
A timeless love story, THESE BROKEN STARS sets into motion a sweeping science fiction series of companion novels. The Starbound Trilogy: Three worlds. Three love stories. One enemy.
Released December 10th
Synopsis from Goodreads.
Not gonna lie, the cover is a BIG draw for me. Really caught my eye.
Also, I'm a sucker for romance. Romance is also a big draw for me, and this sounds like it has the star-crossed lovers thing going on, plus with it being set in a science fiction/fantasy/perhaps dystopian world, it definitely looks intriguing.
I also like that the series are going to be made up of companion novels instead of sequels.
I'm really excited for this one, and have it pre-ordered :)
