Backlist Blast #31 – Hold Back the Stars by Katie Khan

Backlist Blast is a weekly book meme which was created by Milana @ A Couple Reads and Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile. The main purpose of this book blog meme is to feature and discuss backlist books. A backlist book is any title that was published 6 months ago or earlier. The purpose of Backlist Blast is to get us excited about and reading the backlisted books in our TBR piles.



A startling and evocative novel, harkening to both One Day and Gravity, a man and a woman revisit memories of their love affair on a utopian Earth while they are trapped in the vast void of space with only ninety minutes of oxygen left.

After the catastrophic destruction of the Middle East and the United States, Europe has become a utopia and, every three years, the European population must rotate into different multicultural communities, living as individuals responsible for their own actions. While living in this paradise, Max meets Carys and immediately feels a spark of attraction. He quickly realizes, however, that Carys is someone he might want to stay with long-term, which is impossible in this new world.

As their relationship plays out, the connections between their time on Earth and their present dilemma in space become clear. When their air ticks dangerously low, one is offered the chance of salvationโ€”but who will take it? An original and daring exploration of the impact of first love and how the choices we make can change the fate of everyone around us, this is an unforgettable read.

Has anyone read this book? Would you recommend it? Should I move it to the top of my TBR pile or unhaul it?
