Waiting on Wednesday (29)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine.  It's where we share the upcoming releases we're most eagerly anticipating and can't wait to get our hands on! 
This week . . . 

Title:  These Broken Stars
Series:  Starbound #1
Author:  Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner
Publisher:  Disney Hyperion
Release Date:  December 10, 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.

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.
 Why I'm waiting on These Broken Stars:  First of all, that cover is absolutely gorgeous.  I love it so much, it's unbelievable.  The colors and the font and the starry background are all amazing.  But besides that, I am completely obsessed with this premise.  It sounds so interesting and intense, I can't wait!  I'm already hooked and I haven't even read the first page.  

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  In loving memory of all of those lives lost on 9/11/01.  You are missed, remembered, and loved <3
