Waiting on Wednesday (107)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine that allows bloggers to share which books we are most anticipating.
This week I am waiting on This Shattered World by Amy Kaufman and Meagan Spooner (12/23/14):

Description on Goodreads:
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:
The description of this book sounds so good that I’d read it even if I hadn’t already read and loved the first book in the series. Yes, YA writers, please write more sci-fi. I’m craving it and there never seems to be enough. I also feel like this topic of war could really resonate with readers today who are experiencing or at least learning about current wars happening on the other side of the world. Also, I just absolutely loved the first book in this series, and I can’t wait to see what else these co-authors come up with.
What are you waiting on this week?


  1. This one sounds really good. I hope it is even better than the first. The cover is really good.
