Waiting on: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner

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.

Firstly: standalone love stories. Secondly: MEAGAN SPOONER. Thirdly: outer space. I have been obsessed with the idea of YA out-in-the-middle-of-the-universe novels ever since reading Beth Revis' Across the Universe series, and this one sounds phenomenal. ALIEN PLANET, you guys. Plus, I've read Meagan Spooner's book, Skylark, and after the beautiful writing I experience there, I cannot wait to read more from this talented author.
These Broken Stars will be published in 2013 by Disney-Hyperion.
This is not the final cover.


  1. This book. LOOKS SO AWESOME. And I am all about standalone love stories. Dang, I love even writing that out. The universe needs to send me more. Also: YA sci-fi. I am in love.

  2. I've been wanting to delve into more Sci-Fi YA too, so I am definitely adding this one to the list! Thanks for bringing it to my attention :)

  3. All of this, yes! Absolutely and positively up my alley and I am in love.

    My WoW pick this week is Truth or Dare by Jacqueline Green

  4. Ever since reading Beth Revis's series, I really like outer space books. While I love vampires and zombies, it's nice when aliens come into the mix!

  5. Ooh never heard of this one! Need to keep it on my radar! ALSO..I so need to get on the Beth Revis bandwagon. I've owned ATU for FOREVER. Like pre-ordered it. Now THERE is a book blogger woe for you...getting your panty all in a bunch to pre-order books and then there they sit years later. WOMP WOMP WOMPPPP.

  6. Aliens!! Must add to the TBR list stat.
