Waiting On Wednesday #17!

Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly feature hosted at Breaking The Spine  that spotlights those can't-wait-to-get-my-hands-on-them books that we are eagerly awaiting!

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner is the book I'm just dying to get my hands on this week! It's been for a while and after all the awesome reviews it's been getting as of late I-JUST-CANNOT-WAIT!!



Goodreads summary:

"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 am I eagerly awaiting These Broken Stars? Well, first of all I must confess myself guilty of cover lust but really, ain't it just gorgeous?? The cover grabbed my attention and then when I read the synopsis I was hooked! Sci-fi, space, survival in a deserted planet!! I decided to go on a limb and preoder the cover way back then, and now after reading so many fantastic reviews all over the place from bloggers I trust, I'm just bursting to read it!!

What are you all (im)patiently awaiting this week?
