Waiting on Wednesday: Sorrow's Knot and These Broken Stars

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine where you can post about upcoming books you're looking forward to. This is a wonderful chance for blogger to show off what's coming out soon that they are excited about! Every week my wishlist balloons thanks to this awesome meme.

Sorrow's Knot by Erin Bow
In the world of Sorrow’s Knot, the dead do not rest easy. Every patch of shadow might be home to something hungry and nearly invisible, something deadly. The dead can only be repelled or destroyed with magically knotted cords and yarns. The women who tie these knots are called binders. 
Otter is the daughter of Willow, a binder of great power. She’s a proud and privileged girl who takes it for granted that she will be a binder some day herself. But when Willow’s power begins to turn inward and tear her apart, Otter finds herself trapped with a responsibility she’s not ready for, and a power she no longer wants.
Sorrow's Knot is out  2013 by Arthur A. Levine Books.

This is the first time I'm seeing this cover but I have to say that I really like it. I'm enjoying the Native American feel to the whole thing. This book looks super good and I can't wait!

These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman
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.
These Broken Stars is out December 10th 2013 by Disney Hyperion.

I squeed when I saw this cover, stopped, took a deep breath and did it again. Absolutely gorgeous! Reminds me a lot of the first (and better) cover for Tempest. Killer cover and killer summary equals me being one excited girl.

Which book are you waiting on this week?

  1. These Broken Stars was my pick this week, too! YES gorgeous cover, with a story that sounds just amazing. I didn't get a chance to read Erin Bow's first book---is Sorrow's Knot a sequel? Looks really good!

Thinking of writing something below? Well, that's why you are awesome! I always love feedback!

This blog is an award free zone. With the demand of a full time job, blogging time is becoming much more precious and I just don't have the time to meet the demands of awards. Thanks so much for thinking of me anyway!
