Book Review: These Broken Stars

I’ve never disliked two main characters more than in These Broken Stars. Lilac was a bit stuck up and a little too concerned with how her father would react the whole time (even when surviving on an unknown planet) which I guess we find out she has a good reason for. Tarver is just kind of boring and bland – too chivalrous – too perfect – rather annoying. The whole premise also is weird and funky with a deserted planet but not … it’s seemingly haunted yet not. It’s an odd plot and the ending wraps it up yet there’s […]

This was a roller coaster ride. When it comes to space operas this particular writing duo seems to do no wrong. The plot was entertaining the whole way through, there was never a dull moment.

But I was really curious to see how everything would tie together from These Broken Stars. This Shattered World starts off, pacing wise, just like These Broken Stars. The plot begins by heavily focusing on our characters. Their individual stories told via dual POVs. […]

Book Review: These Broken Stars

At first glance, These Broken Stars looked to be just another space romance. A retelling of Titanic even. However, despite the less than stellar feelings this summary was giving me, These Broken Stars had one advantage that I knew would make me read this book no matter what… Meagan Spooner. I am not the type of person who will always read everything and anything as long as it is by X author. However, Meagan Spooner has proven to me how incredibly talented she is, and I knew that even if the book was a glorified retelling of Titanic, there would […]
