Book Nerd Confession Time: I sometimes judge books by their covers. I totally did with this book. Honestly, I never read the description. I had no idea what it was about. But I have been absolutely dying to read it ever since I first saw it because of the cover. I mean, look at it:
|I've fallen in Cover Love!|
I was lucky enough to get an ARC from Netgalley. This is ironic since Netgalley ARCs don't have the covers! Go figure!
These Broken Stars was...interesting. I am not 100% sure where to put it. I am not usually a science fiction reader, so there were times that the technicalities involved with space and hyperspace confused me. And the end kind of confused me as well. I actually had to go back and re-read it to make sure I was understanding it correctly.
But these characters are fantastic. I enjoyed being inside Tarver's head, and I enjoyed being inside Lilac's head. I really enjoyed them together. The story flowed really well and was a fast and easy read.
So if you're a fan or science fiction or YA love stories or both, These Broken Stars is worth a read. I'd recommend getting a hard copy of the book, though, so you can look at the cover! Isn't it pretty?!
