I read the first book in the series, These Broken Stars, some time ago – long enough that I don’t remember details, but I do remember parts of the plot and also that I was impressed. I will admit that I fully believe that some of the love for this book was influenced by the massive hype surrounding TBS at the time. However, I did also love the book itself: I was a fan of the writing, the mindfuckery (you can wake me up for […]

One day I plan to kidnap Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner so they can come and write books for me to read for the rest of my life.

I’m rather surprised by These Broken Stars. Sure, I expected it to be downright amazing but I never knew that it could be this amazing. Beautiful. Heart-warming. Gorgeous. Exquisite. Anymore synonyms for beautiful and hurry-up-and-read-this? “She’s not looking at me and seeing a guy brought up on the wrong type of planet. She’s not seeing a soldier, or a war hero, or an uncultured lout who doesn’t understand how hard this is for her, or an idiot who knows nothing about the right […]
