  1. This book was SO GOOD Not what I expected it to be at all I m excited to discuss this at the booksplosion live show.

  2. I loved the characters and their romance, and the mystery kept me flipping through the pages Some aspects of the ending had me scratching my head a little, but overall I still really enjoyed this and I can t wait to read the next book in this world

  3. I am crazy minority lady Let me break down my thought process on this book from the very first time I noticed it on because somewhere along the way something went really really wrong Just a quick scroll down the GR page and I can see all my friends ratings of five or four stars but the attraction is lost on me.1 The description appears on We are promised science fiction and space and a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain A setting in space, a story of survival and a couple of hor [...]

  4. This is of a 3.7 for me i enjoyed it but i m not crazy about it, here s my full booktak review youtu ZD m6fhRfhA

  5. 4.5 stars Here s what you need to know This story is incredibly original, and unlike any other scifi book I ve ever read before Leaps and bounds above most YA science fiction for sure, and with an interesting mood tone that you don t often find in this genre Much of the book is also a survival story, so if you like that sort of thing as I do , this one will probably interest you The writing is terrific Don t let the Titanic in space idea fool you while technically true and a spectacular crash in [...]

  6. Boom Five stars.You know why Because I enjoyed the shit out of this book You want a detailed breakdown of what happens in it Look elsewhere You want me to tell you how fucking gloriously understated yet wholly satisfying this world building was Too bad You want to know why I started losing my mind 70% in HOW S IT FEEL TO WANT This book is everything that makes me keep coming back to the YA category Because sometimes, sometimes an author does it right Kaufman and Spooner did it right They did it [...]

  7. I can t review this yet I quite liked it, yet don t know how to describe it.I know I read it instead of doing Buzz Worthy News, which is a big no no for me But I just couldn t help myself And whilst I won t give anything away, I finished it like I had a spell over me It was nice, ya know Just real nice Review to come closer to release date.

  8. This is a wilderness waiting to swallow me I d barely make a dent trying to fight it There are no rules for me to learn, no points to be scored, no bluffs to be called This is a hell I ve never imagined.And I think I m going to die here.A lot of people have been calling this an intergalactic Titanic, and while there are certain similarities, particularly in the beginning of the book, the parallels to that doomed cruise liner ends there I really liked this book This is a beautifully written space [...]

  9. I really enjoyed this book the second time around The first time I read this book was back in 2015 and I m not sure why I gave it 2.5 stars I had an old review that told me some of the reasons but they make no sense to me now I loved Tarver and Lilac and yes I wanted to smack them a few times I always feel like that so it s nothing new Lilac is the daughter of one of the richest men if not the richest men and Tarver is a lowly Major that didn t come from a whole lot They didn t really like each [...]

  10. I probably read the wrong book.That cover that blurb that promising romance A DNF At 49%.I wanted so bad to enjoy this in order to buy it in hardcover and have it in my library and admire it day and night Very slightly exaggerating The thing is, I am not one to buy books only for their beautiful cover I have to like of preference love the actual story.Except for the writing, nothing worked for me.The pacing had such a slow speed that I just couldn t continue I always waiting for something intere [...]

  11. Normally, I do not like snarky boys, well to be precise, in real life, I don t like my boys with this much snark But in the case of Tarver, I think it totally worked for him I really liked the romance between him Lilac.There was no insta love here It wasn t quite really that I d called this insta attraction but that was it.Hallelujah

  12. I won a copy of this ARC from Disney Publishers, and I haven t gotten a chance to read it until now What a mistake This is by far my favorite YA read from 2013.These Broken Stars, written by the duo Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner, takes us to space aboard a massive luxury ship, similar to the Titanic We immediately meet our two main characters Tarver, a solider, and Lilac, the daughter of the richest and most powerful man in the universe Right away, something happens to the ship, and the two of [...]

  14. Good job, Disney 4 star book.2 star ending.Kind of like Miley Cyrus It s a futuristic sci fi fantasy book And the rudiment of the story is that the richest girl in the galaxy gets stranded on a planet with a military boy So, we ve all read this story before, right It s one that has been done over and over and over again But the thing with These Broken Stars is that there s actually a lot of originality in this book It s co written by two brilliant ladies, Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner I though [...]

  15. This book reminds me why I love reading so much How trilling it is to dive into a new story, a new world, new lives and new adventures that leave me breathless every time This was such an unusual original story I have nothing to measure it against It was nothing like I thought it would be The world building is awesome, the action is trilling, the characters are strong and determined, the turnarounds made me tear a bit and the ending left me full of hope THESE BROKEN STARS tells a story about sur [...]

  16. 4.5 Stars Actually, last year I read a few pages of this book but I did not understand because my English wasn t really good that time so I decided to read another book that I understoodd then 13 days ago I started reading this book again because I didn t know what to read except this book.I thought this book would be weird and boring because everytime I think the book will be great, then it will turn out to be boring But I wronged this time, very very wronged.I enjoyed this book so much I liked [...]

  17. 2.5 stars I LOVE these covers so much that I had to finally read this series And it s a decent story, but I kept zoning out and thinking about how much I d rather be reading something like Illuminae Sci fi books or those set in space are usually hit or miss with me, so this is probably a case of it s not you, it s me Everything here was fine but I just never really got into any of it and was a bit bored I ve heard awesome things about it, but I was mostly like

  18. Guys This is not a story about a girl flying in space in a dress That s only in the first chapter I swear Actually, most of this book is a survival story After a crash land on an anonymous planet, Tarver and Lilac have to find a way to get along and stay alive amongst the wild animals and Lilac s questionable state of mind It s not a fast paced read, but rather a slow trek on this mysterious planet full of whispers, visions, ghosts, and other bizarre happenings This is what keeps it completely e [...]

  19. DNF at 51%God, I can t do this to myself I kept telling myself I must have been reading the wrong book, because EVERYONE loved this, but I just can t see why.Many reviewers have described this as Titanic in space, and that is a great description Thing is, this is a love story That s all The first time Tarver sees Lilac, he thinks she s the most beautiful girl there, and it only gets cheesy and cliched the I read Ugh.When I got to the 50% mark I stopped and asked myself Why am I continuing with [...]

  20. This book though These Broken Stars was most definitely my most anticipated release of 2013, with that cover luring me in like sirens do sailors at sea ever since its release announcement I mean, that cover is probably the most beautiful thing I had seen all year It has the perfect space odyssey mythology ratio that just did it for me even way before I knew what the whole story was about I was so, so happy when These Broken Stars became everything I had hoped for I finished it in three hours wit [...]

  21. Reread 1 13 16 I don t think re reading this after Illuminae was a good idea because no other sci fi book will ever live up for me now Either way though this was still mega entertaining and I can t wait to finally carry on with the series Original review 1 6 15 This book Oh my god Drowning in a puddle of my feels for all of eternity

  22. 3.5 stars But who names a starship the Icarus What kind of man possess that much hubris, that he dares it to fall I went into These Broken Stars expecting a Titanic retelling We all remember what happens at the end Kate is a dumbass and runs after Jack, then they both get stranded and Jack freezes to death Also, he never wins an Oscar.But I digress My point is, a Titanic retelling has to have at least two things a sink sinks, and someone dies And guess what No one dies view spoiler I was in awe [...]

  23. SECOND ATTEMPT DNF 20%BUDDY READING with my wife, Caitlin I tried Boy, did I try I struggled through 20% of pointless interactions and pointless information to give up This book just isn t for me and I m sad because I really did want to like this In one of her updates Caitlin said this was basically the Titanic in space I hate the Titanic I hate the movie with a burning fiery passion of wtf why did I just waste like two hours of my life The characters are one dimensional for me I hate Lilac I ha [...]

  24. Whatever Amie Kaufman writes, i read No questions asked In case some of you don t know, she is also the author of Illuminae and Gemina SHE IS AMAZING

  25. Full ReviewPart Titanic in space, part I Shouldn t Be Alive and part Doctor Who The Twilight Zone, this is a sci fi fantasy survivor story romance all in one and I loved it We start out on the glamourous Icarus, and have just enough time to get a taste for the gigantic luxury spaceliner when she is yanked from hyberspace and sucked into an unknown planets gravity Our main characters Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merenderson end up in a crew escape pod and just barely survive the crash down to the plan [...]

  26. Absolutely brilliant This is the sci fi I ve been waiting for Action, romance, twists and turns this book has it all

  27. Well, this was bloody brilliant But what did I just read Tension and telepathy and spaceships, and then romance that I actually gave a shit about I know, right and then a giant twist a twist so twisty that it s almost physically painful A twist so twisty, you ll pull a muscle in your back.JustWhat are you, These Broken Stars Proper review to come.
