These Broken Stars

These Broken Stars - Amie Kaufman, Meagan Spooner 3.5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: The first part of the book is pretty exciting. There's a lot of chaos and panic happening. Then, the next portion is a little slow moving, but we learn about the characters and we see their interaction with each other.

About 3/4ths of the way through the book, something happens that made me need to keep reading well past my bedtime.

There was quite a bit of hype around this book, and for me I think that hurt my feelings toward it. I was expecting something spectacular and I felt like that just wasn't there for me. Now, I did really enjoy this book, and I think the sequel will be extremely good.

CHARACTERS: I feel like there is a lot of good character development throughout the course of this book. I really like both Tarver and Lilac and I like the way they engage with each other.

COVER: One of my favorite covers ever. It is so gorgeous!
