Can’t Wait Wednesday – THE DARKEST STAR by Jennifer L. Armentrout
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in for over a year now, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll just be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is THE DARKEST STAR by Jennifer L. Armentrout. I tend to love sci-fi reads anway, but this one really caught my eye with its promise of secrets, lies, and a swoonworthy book boyfriend? Sign me up!
THE DARKEST STAR by Jennifer L. Armentrout
Publication Date: October 30, 2018
#1 New York Times, USA Today, and internationally bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout brings her trademark drama and intrigue to a new romantic YA science fiction series with The Darkest Star. A girl pulled into in a world she doesn’t understand finds herself confronted by long buried secrets, a betrayal that could tear her life apart…and Armentrout’s most swoonworthy book boyfriend yet.
In the world of the Lux, secrets thrive, lies shatter, and love is undeniable.
Seventeen-year-old Evie Dasher knows firsthand the devastating consequences of humanity’s war with the aliens. When she’s caught up in a raid at a notorious club known as one of the few places where humans and the surviving Luxen can mingle freely, she meets Luc, an unnaturally beautiful guy she initially assumes is a Luxen…but he is in fact something much more powerful. Her growing attraction for Luc will lead her deeper and deeper into a world she’d only heard about, a world where everything she thought she knew will be turned on its head…

Other than Colleen Hoover’s latest, which has already released, this one is my my anticipated book of the year. 🙂 I’m crazy excited for the Lux series to continue!
I hope you enjoy it!
This sounds fun! I love all the SF in YA right now, and this one looks like it may have a nice romance to boot!
I’m loving it too and hope the SF trend continues on into 2019.
This one sounds very promising! I hope you enjoy it – I’ve seen this author’s name crop up on a variety of blogs and have yet to read her writing. I look forward to reading the review in due course:)
Yes, she is pretty popular 🙂
Oooh, something more powerful? Yeah that got my interest big time!
Right? Same here!
This sounds great! I haven’t read anything by this author yet but I might check this out! I hope you’ll enjoy it!
I’m so excited for this, although I haven’t read her Lux series yet. Great choice!

That cover is so pretty!
Isn’t it? That’s definitely what drew me to it first.
I have always loved Jennifer Armentrout, she is a phenomenal author who has this uncanny ability to create worlds and characters that just pull me in. I have no doubt that I will fall in love with this book, too. This cover is…STUNNING! 🙂
Isn’t it? I fell in love with the cover as soon as I saw it.
