Waiting on Wednesday: Weight of Stars by K. Ancrum

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme created by Jill at Breaking the Spine which highlights upcoming releases we are excited for!

This week, I’m going with…

Weight of Stars by K. Ancrum


Release Date: 19th March 2019

Publisher: Imprint

Genre: YA/Sci-Fi/Contemporary/Romance

I am so hyped for this book, not only because it centres around protagonists of colour, is apparently queer as all hell, and is about space, but because it also just seems so damn up my alley.

Have a scan of the synopsis and tell me it doesn’t!


Ryann Bird dreams of traveling across the stars. But a career in space isn’t an option for a girl who lives in a trailer park on the wrong side of town. So Ryann becomes her circumstances and settles for acting out and skipping school to hang out with her delinquent friends. 

One day she meets Alexandria: a furious loner who spurns Ryann’s offer of friendship. After a horrific accident leaves Alexandria with a broken arm, the two misfits are brought together despite themselves—and Ryann learns her secret: Alexandria’s mother is an astronaut who volunteered for a one-way trip to the edge of the solar system. 

Every night without fail, Alexandria waits to catch radio signals from her mother. And its up to Ryann to lift her onto the roof day after day until the silence between them grows into friendship, and eventually something more . . . 

In K. Ancrum’s signature poetic style, this slow-burn romance will have you savoring every page. 


I have so many 2019 releases I’m excited for – I’M SUFFERING!

One more to add to the TBR!
