Waiting on Wednesday: These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner

****"Waiting on Wednesday" is a weekly event hosted by Jill at the Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.****
My pick this week is:
These Broken Stars (These Broken Stars, #1)
These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner
Expected publication: December 10th 2013 by Disney Hyperion
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.
The first in a sweeping science fiction trilogy, These Broken Stars is a timeless love story about hope and survival in the face of unthinkable odds.

*fangirls* Let me just say this book sounds drop everything amazing! Can I have it now? The cover is so pretty, the storyline sounds epic and, the characters sound wonderful. Sci fi isn't something I read a lot of but when I do, I love it. It is something I want to read more of so I'm thinking I should start with this! Sadly, I have quite awhile to wait :(.
