Waiting On Wednesday: These Broken Stars

"Waiting On Wednesday" is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

So, we all know my serious LOVE for gorgeous cover art and this is one to add to my pile of favorites!  I cannot WAIT for Amie Kaufman and  novel, These Broken Stars (Starbound#1) that is due to release December 10th of 2013!  I mean really, what is not to like?  First off, can we talk about this cover?  Absolutely GORG!  I mean really, I want that green dress!  And can you totally see that there is destined to be a swoon-worthy heartthrob that is helping our beautiful heroine??!! 

It’s no secret that I hold Sci-Fi YAs close to my heart and this one promises to be nothing short of spectacular!  I mean check this out, two young adults (possibly the last two left) that come from completely different backgrounds (uber wealthy and dirt poor) traversing the deserted terrain of random planet x…I mean what could go wrong right?  …or what could go right?! ;-)  Definitely sounds like this one is filled with massive adventure, big decisions and totally swoon-worthy moments that I, for one, cannot wait to dive into!  December, come quickly!

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Summary courtesy of 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.

The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.
