Starbound by Amie Kaufman

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman
Starbound # 1

OK don't hate, but I did not finish this book. I like the book, the concept was original and very likable. The characters were well written, but the pacing of this book was off. I felt the first few chapters were good. I didn't realize the setting started off in space at first.

Then it started to slow down. If I had to guess this book is like a journey with a slow build up, but at this time I wanted something faster paced. I will eventually pick this book back up and update my review.

Thank you to Disney for giving me a review copy of this book.


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

  1. I'm sorry that you weren't able to get into it, it is really different from the typical YA. if you pick it up again, definitely persist with it, it's totally worth it. It's been one of my favorites this year :)
