These Broken Stars (These Broken Stars, #1)
These Broken Stars
by Amie Kaufman & Megan Spooner
Series: Starbound #1
Publisher: Disney Hyperion 
Release Date: December 10th, 2013

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.

Why I'm Waiting...

Another cover that is to die for! Seriously gorgeous, and I'll even get over the fact that this looks like another YA with a redhead as the protagonist. Because ya know what? It's in SPACE! (Well part of it) On a ship named ICARUS! Has anyone seen the movie Sunshine? Nope? Well it's amazing and they basically fly a ship called Icarus because they're trying to reignite the sun. This book looks so good, and I'm sure I'm not the first or last one to WOW it up. Can. Not. Wait. :D

Have you heard of this? What are you waiting on? Don't forget to leave you links in the comments!
