Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Breaking the Spine
"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is

This Shattered World
(Starbound, #2)
by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Releases |December 23rd 2014 by Disney-Hyperion|
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.
The stunning second novel in the Starbound trilogy is an unforgettable story of love and forgiveness in a world torn apart by war.
Why I'm Waiting...
I enjoyed the first book and thought it was a good book so I'm curious to how this one will be since it has a different set of Characters. 

Other Books in the Series


  1. Ooooh I haven't seen that cover yet! It's okay. I like the first one better! :D But I wish they'd just do a sequel to the first book. I want to know what happens next for those two characters. =(

  2. I still need to read These Broken Stars, I like the idea that it is different characters in this book. Another gorgeous cover too! Great pick, I hope you enjoy :)

  3. Oo pretty colours! Much better than the preview orange they had out prior to this. I haven't' actually read These Broken Stars yet (it's cover is just gorgeous) I really must get onto these books!

  4. OMGG I AM SO EXCITED FOR THIS. And Jubilee is my gamer tag, so already I am loving this book! I cannot wait for this! Great pick Janina!

  5. Huh, interesting cover. I'm deeply disappointed that this series went the companion route instead of the direct sequel one. I'm honestly not sure if I'll bother reading this one or not yet. Nice pick though.

  9. I haven't read These Broken Stars yet, but I have it on my tbr list. Hopefully I can read it soon. I hope you enjoy reading this one. Thanks for stopping by My WoW.

  10. I haven't heard of this one yet but sounds good and hope you get to read it soon.

  11. I LOVED These Broken Stars! A usually don't like when a series continues in the same world but with different characters. We'll see how this one goes… I really just want more of Lilac & Tarver haha.

  12. Whee! I saw this cover, too, on Twitter, and it was so pretty. I definitely like it better than the one in These Broken Stars. It has that action, longing, and steamy romance all rolled into one. Wheee ><
