What's Next #2 ~ The Review Book Edition

What's Next is a weekly feature hosted by Icey Books, where bloggers can help other bloggers pick their next read. Sounds like fun, right? Head on over to Icey Books for more details and to join in the fun!

Thanks to everyone who chimed in last week! I decided on The Coldest Girl in Coldtown because it had the most votes, plus it seemed like the most appropriate choice as a Halloween-y read.  

This week I need to choose between three review books that I need to read in the next 2-3 weeks. Which should I read first??

It's a night like any other on board the Icarus. Then, catastrophe strikes: the massive luxury spaceliner is yanked out of hyperspace and plummets into the nearest planet. Lilac LaRoux and Tarver Merendsen survive. And they seem to be alone.

Lilac is the daughter of the richest man in the universe. Tarver comes from nothing, a young war hero who learned long ago that girls like Lilac are more trouble than they’re worth. But with only each other to rely on, Lilac and Tarver must work together, making a tortuous journey across the eerie, deserted terrain to seek help.

Then, against all odds, Lilac and Tarver find a strange blessing in the tragedy that has thrown them into each other’s arms. Without the hope of a future together in their own world, they begin to wonder—would they be better off staying here forever?

Everything changes when they uncover the truth behind the chilling whispers that haunt their every step. Lilac and Tarver may find a way off this planet. But they won’t be the same people who landed on it.

Becca thought her life was over when her father was sent to prison for embezzlement. It didn't help when he used her as his excuse: "How else is a guy like me supposed to send his daughter to college?" She and her mother fled their town and their notoriety, started over, and vowed never to let anyone know about their past.

Now a senior in high school, Becca has spent the last four years hiding in anonymity. But when it's time to apply to colleges and for financial aid, her mother gives her a rude awakening: If she applies, her past may be revealed to the world

But Becca has already applied for a full-ride scholarship. And as she begins to probe deeper into the secrets of her past, she discovers that she and her mother might be in danger of more than simple discovery - by revealing the truth about their past, she might be putting their very lives in jeopardy.

When seventeen-year-old Sia wakes up on a park bench, she has no idea who or where she is. Yet after a week of being homeless, she’s reunited with her family. At school, she’s powerful and popular. At home, she’s wealthy beyond her dreams. But she quickly realizes her perfect life is a lie. Her family is falling apart and her friends are snobby, cruel and plastic. Worse yet, she discovers she was the cruelest one. Mortified by her past, she embarks on a journey of redemption and falls for Kyle, the “geek” she once tormented. Yet all the time she wonders if, when her memories return, she’ll become the bully she was before…and if she’ll lose Kyle.

So which book do you think I should read next - These Broken Stars, Full Ride, or Sia?

  1. My vote is going to These Broken Stars only because the heroine's name is Lilac, and I thought I was the only writer in the world to ever use that. (She's the heroine of Promise Me Forever, one of my Sealer Saga novellas.) I have Sia on my must read list as well and if we were strictly going by best summary it would get my pick. Happy reading!

  2. THESE BROKEN STARS! I have heard AMAZING things about that book. And it's set in space, which I obviously love. ;)

  3. DUDE. NO question. NONE AT ALL. TBS was amazing, in that it ripped my heart out and then somehow managed to make me whole again by the time it was over. One of THE BEST books I've read since I started blogging.
