I’ve wanted to read this book for so long, and now I finally have. I had heard nothing but good things so I went into this with the highest expectations I have ever had for a book. Truly, it was doomed to fail before I even read it, right? Wrong! This book surprised me by meeting those expectations and more, to the point that by chapter 5ish I had gone ahead and purchased the hardcover book.
What’s even more amazing about that is I’m really not a fan of Sci-Fi books, but I really did love this one.
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.
I don’t know why, but I just felt compelled to give an update on where I am for my readings this month. It’s probably because I haven’t had anything to post about recently. I can tell you with honesty, though, it has not been great. You try to read, and life gets in the way…
I hate that I haven’t posted much, but I’ve been so busy with school work. Also, we’ve been trying to pack because we are hoping to move in the next month or so. We don’t know where yet, we’re waiting on a job to pop up and say ‘hey come work for us.’ We are so hopeful that one happens soon.
I also haven’t watched any actual television for the past 2-3 weeks, because we’ve been re-watching Fairy Tale and One Piece. We got the DVDs for Christmas, and so we’ve been popping in those DVDs and playing them through. It’s been fun.
Anyway, I wanted to do a quick favorites post because why not, they’re fun!
