I don't know if you've had a chance to read some YA sci-fi recently, but there's some good stuff out there. I've absolutely fallen in love with The Starbound Trilogy by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner. The first book is These Broken Stars and the second one is This Shattered World. A third one is coming out at the end of this year.

A quick and dirty description of TBS: Lilac and Tarver are the only two survivors of a luxury spaceship crash, and they have to rely on each other to survive. But they may not be entirely alone on the seemingly abandoned planet.

And TSW: Jubilee is a soldier. Flynn leads the rebellion. They shouldn't even be speaking, but circumstances throw them together when full-on war breaks out on the planet of Avon.

Both were amazing and stunning reads. The world is rich and fully developed, linking the two stories together. All four main characters are awesome. I found myself pulling and aching for them. Their voices are all distinct and I never once forgot who I was reading.

All in all, I adore this series and look forward to the third one.

Raise your hand if you're watching Agent Carter. Isn't it fantastic?

I was so excited when they announced this show, and it does not disappoint. Two episodes in, and I'm already squeeing.

Peggy holds her own in a sea of guys. Jarvis is an adorable sidekick. And I kind of want Sousa to stick around and help her out.

Who else is watching. Let's squee together!
