Waiting On Wednesday #10 - This Shattered World


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine, where we talk about books we can't wait to read! This week I picked....
This Shattered World (Starbound, #2)
Title: Shattered World
Author: Amie Kaufman & Meagan Spooner
Pages: 390
Pub Date: December 23rd, 2014
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Series: Yes
Jubilee Chase and Flynn Cormac should never have met.
Lee is captain of the forces sent to Avon to crush the terraformed planet's rebellious colonists, but she has her own reasons for hating the insurgents.

Rebellion is in Flynn's blood. Terraforming corporations make their fortune by recruiting colonists to make the inhospitable planets livable, with the promise of a better life for their children. But they never fulfilled their promise on Avon, and decades later, Flynn is leading the rebellion.
Desperate for any advantage in a bloody and unrelentingly war, Flynn does the only thing that makes sense when he and Lee cross paths: he returns to base with her as prisoner. But as his fellow rebels prepare to execute this tough-talking girl with nerves of steel, Flynn makes another choice that will change him forever. He and Lee escape the rebel base together, caught between two sides of a senseless war.

Why Am I Excited?

To say that I LOVED These Broken Stars is an understatement. It gave me the worst book hangover and I cried all over it. So that being said, I'm very excited for this one. I'm not a huge fan of this cover but it does sound like its going to be another adventurous romance.

What are you waiting for this Wednesday? Leave a Link below if you made a post :)

  4. I'm really looking forward to this one, too. At first I even planned to write about this but instead I chose This Night So Dark because that will come out sooner and I want more Lilac and Tarver.

  28. I have to agree, I'm not much a fan of the cover, but the blurb sounds really good. Is this a sequel of just another romance from the same author?

    1. Its the sequel to these broken stars but it's a bit like anna and the french kiss series, where its a different couple.

  52. I know this is last week's WOW, but when I came over to comment back from THIS week's WOW, I noticed you didn't have one up. Then I found this one, so I decided to stop and tell you that this is just the AWESOMEST pick!!!! I have the first book, which I really have to read!! And I LOVE this cover just as much as the first one!! So thanks for featuring this book, since I wasn't aware that there was a second one to be released already!!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my July 9th WOW!! : )
