Review: Their Fractured Light felt more like a (fun) roller coaster than a book. It’s full of ups and downs, waves of different (and opposite) emotions, and tons and tons and tons of action. Their Fractured Light is definitely a huge page turner. It pulled me in the minute I turned to the first page and I couldn’t stop reading until it was over. Every page was filled with suspense, mystery, action, emotion, “ah ha!” moments, or plot twists just to name a few. I […]

Review: Before I say anything else, I have to say I loved This Shattered World more than These Broken Stars. It was more action packed than These Broken Stars and there was more conflict. As a result, it was more interesting. I definitely turned the pages faster and was more intrigued. After reading This Shattered World, it really felt like These Broken Stars was almost like a prequel. It basically just set the premise of the series and introduced some characters, but all the fun […]
Review: This Night So Dark is a novella that comes after These Broken Stars. It’s pretty much about one of Tarver’s experiences in the army. If you haven’t read it and love the series, it’s definitely worth a read (it’s a free ebook!). Just as a side not: chronologically, the novella takes place after the first book (sort of…), but I read This Shattered World, the second book in the series, before reading this. I really liked how the story was told. It was told […]
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. I loved reading the first two books in the Starbound series, These Broken Stars and This Shattered World, so I really can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of Their Fractured Light. I need to know what happens to all my favorite characters and how the saga ends! What are you waiting on?
Last week I had the pleasure of seeing Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff at an author event at my local Barnes & Noble. They were visiting the States from Australia to promote their new book, Illuminae which came out a few weeks ago. They talked about the book and the process in which it was created. Claire Legrand made a surprise appearance (she wasn’t scheduled to come according to the B&N website) to act as the moderator. Note: This recap is probably going to be […]
Review: These Broken Stars is now one of my all-time favorite science fiction books dealing with space and aliens. I really liked how it was done as well as all the twists that came along which really surprised me since in the beginning it seemed like a cliche fantasy novel, but over time, it proved me wrong. These Broken Stars is definitely a more character driven novel. Besides the first and last quarter of the book, the plot is a bit… lacking (aka nothing much […]
