These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagen Spooner


Hey everybody, another review for you all. This is one of the E-books I read last month and I really loved it. Hope you enjoy. 🙂

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 thrown them into each others 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.

I loved this book so much, it’s the cross between Sci-Fi and romance that I’ve been dreaming of, waiting for, hoping for. It was just pure perfection and I’m hoping to get a hard copy of it because I love it that much.

The dual perspective wasn’t confusing or unclear. It was clear and distinctive. I could open the page and tell whose narrative it was, Lilac or Tarver’s. The words laced with raw humor and blatant emotion, the settings well descriptive and the voices distinct. I loved (In a weird way…) Lilacs descent in to madness and how Tarver cared after her and the other way round when he was going crazy. The major plot twists, asdfghjkl!! Wow, they messed with my brain. The aliens, playing with them, their very twisted ways of messing with them. I loved the description of the animals and the visions. I loved hearing the characters back stories and hearing about Lilac’s dad and the mechanics.

My fave quote:

“And there it is, against all hope, like the sun peeking out from behind the clouds. The smallest hint of a smile.”

“I know a thousand different smiles, each with its own nuanced shade of meaning, but I don’t know how to reach the few feet away to touch this person next to me. I don’t know how to talk to him. Not when it’s real.”

Some music that I think goes well with the book:

I give this book 5/5 stars and recommend you go and read this amazing book.

Thanks for reading!
