Another Jessica Sorensen book that gave me a major case of the feels! From the moment I read the prologue, I was hooked.
I went back and forth on my rating How do you move on when the person you loved chose to leave you? Death is a heartbreaking thing. But when someone choses that fate, it makes it even harder to cope. Being home from college in the summer is hard for Nova. All the memories surround her. She will forever wonder why I used to have hope. I used to believe in things.
He was driving the car that crashed and took the lives of two important people to him. He should have died too. He wishes that he did. No matter what happened that night, he will never be able to forgive himself.
He is in self destruction mode. He does the only thing he knows how to do to cope, the only thing that even takes the edge off. He gets high. Nova and Quinton are both in a bad place when they meet. They are both broken. Death has consumed their lives.
I know death hurts, death breaks, death consumes, and there is no magic cure to making it go away. Nova and Quinton are sort of pulled together in some strange way. Nova wants to figure Quinton out.
They develop this odd friendship at first. They are connected in ways that no one else would understand.
The more time they spend together, the more they want to be with one another. He uses women all the time. But thats all it ever is.
Just like the drugs, something to numb him. He knows things with Nova would be different. She means something. The truth stabs at my chest like a chunk of shrapnel lodged in my heart, right where the scar is. I gave up. With Nova. With anyone. Nova and Quinton are trying to figure things out. Both are damaged, broken. Instead of being able to heal each other, their lives both just spiral further and further out of control. Finally, Nova has had enough. She hits a point in her life where she knows things have to change, she has to change.
But what does that mean for Quinton?
Nova and Quinton are not perfect characters. They are both broken, flawed, damaged. I have such a love for damaged people. Nova was broken, but she hit rock bottom and rose from the ashes. I commend her for being strong enough to walk away. I hated that she had to do that, but she had to do what she had to do to survive. Get her life back on track. Quinton was one of those characters that just broke my heart. I wanted to give him a big hug.
Especially when he said things like this- Nova said she went looking for me. No one ever goes looking for me or cared enough to worry about me.
There were some parts of the ending I was extremely happy with. Other parts devastated me. It is not a hea. The ending is not clean cut. I really hope the next book comes out soon. I need to see what is in store for there two, especially Quinton. We get lost. We try to control what will happen. We give up. We search for things in the wrongest of ways. She creates beautifully damaged characters who have some serious issues.
There were some seriously gritty parts. A lot of drug use. People who are doing any thing they can to erase the pain, numb themselves. If you are looking for an emotional, raw, powerful and beautiful book, you will want to give this one a go!!!

It was so good that I forgot my own decisions! There are both broken by their past. Nova ex-boyfriend died and Quinton ex-gi 4 Beautifully Broken Stars!! Nova ex-boyfriend died and Quinton ex-girlfriend and cousin died in a car accident while he was driving and he feels guilty about it.
Nova is trying to move on, to try to be happy and feel alive again. Quinton is trying to forget and just be numb to the outside world. He justs wants to forget everything and one day disappear for good.
But dealing with life is hard… and from that day one their lives and this book will be a damn roller-coaster of emotions. God, this was emotional, filled with angst, messed with my feelings and I loved every single second of it.
I know, unfair… but what can I do? So if you are into books that will certainly bring you to tears, you have to read this one! View all 61 comments. Aug 15, Lady Vigilante Feifei rated it really liked it Shelves: Drugs, suicide, accidents, and more are all packed in this book and it took a toll on me. And as usual, her writing style is fantastic so I had no problem getting into the story.
On one of the rare days she hangs out with her friend Delilah, she meets Quinton and she sees something in him that reflects her own sorrow. At the same time Nova loses her boyfriend, Quinton Carter loses his girlfriend in a tragic car accident. Meeting Nova knocks him off his feet, because for once, he feels like he has a reason to live.
It pretty much crushed me to see the baggage both Nova and Quinton carried and their reluctance to get to know each other. But at the same time, I understood. Timing wise, I found their budding romance to be very realistic and liberating for the both of them. Usually books like these where many sensitive topics like drugs, death, suicide and more are touched upon, it becomes hard for me as the reader to fall for the characters and romance when all my mind is focused on are the depressing moments.
For books to get all five of my stars, I HAVE to be emotionally invested in these characters on top of a well-delivered story. So in short, I liked this one very much. It held my attention from start to finish and I liked both of the characters: Quinton with his damaged bad boy vibe and Nova with her tough-as-nails attitude.

Breaking Nova was not what I expected it to be. When I think about Qui 2. When I think about Quinton and start to compare him to Micah or Kayden I feel the need to hit my head with something heavy.
My terrible book monster reared his ugly head and started stomping like five year old telling at me to stop reading this epic failure. I need a shoulder to cry on. Can someone volunteer? I despise writing hateful reviews, especially for a book I had great expectations. Let me tell you exactly why. This is a story about Nova and Quinton.
Both of them are broken and damaged, which is totally fine with me, I love heartbreaking books, but this time Sorensen went a little bit too far. Nova is nineteen years old and lost boyfriend she loved very much. He was always drowning in his sorrow, never really smiling and struggling with every day.
From that moment Nova changed. She wants to know why London killed himself. She also blames herself for not helping him. Completely lost and broken Nova is back home for summer break. But her house and neigborhood is the place that is strongly connected to her and London, which make her remember every painful thing.
Quinton is a druggie. Smoking is his only way of dealing with death he caused in car accident a year ago. His mind and soul are pretty fucked up. He wishes he could die with her that day, because living is his own hell. Think every catastrophe happening on one page. Everything is there. But where was amazing sense of humor? Where were swoonworthy moments only Sorensen could create? Where the fuck was pure healing love? You have to understand that I expect something beautiful to blosom from ugly.
Hurt has to change in love and so on. I love pink fluffy happily ever after!! Also everyone in this novel is doing drugs. To deal with life, horrible past, to have fun, to have even more fun, to find out how it feels like, to… I think you get my point.
Nova almost begs for a joint, because she wants to find out why people why doing it. Quinton is always stoned and his friends too. And guess what? There is nothing sexy in someone addicted. There is no fun in reading about effects of getting stoned. This is the first book by Sorensen that lacks in love department. Quinton could overdose and I would be happy he got what he deserved.
The thing about Nova is even more complex. She personalize London with him. She sees sadness, brokeness in both of them.
It was pretty pathetic to watch. I wanted to know his reasons and well, get to understand him. I also enjoyed beautiful style of writing and the easy way Sorensen can tell a story.
As always words were deep and meaningful. The last few pages showed me Nova in totally different light that made me like her more. I'm crossing my fingers for her.
I wish her the best, because she needs to find her happiness. Overall, I am a little bit angry and disappointed in this story. I think that my issue with drugs made me bitter about some things and I suppose people who didn't care about it will have better time to focus on other sides of this novel.

New Adult Contemporary View all 5 comments. Sep 05, Duchess Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: This was my first novel by Jessica Sorensen, and I can say without a doubt that she knows how to use words to evoke some very strong emotions.
In the case of Breaking Nova, it was mostly sadness, depression, anger, and helplessness. Watching two essentially good people slowly destroy themselves is never any fun. Nova Reed hasn't always been this blank shell that she is today.
Less than a year ago, she was a somewhat quiet girl, on the outskirts of popular but still content teenage girl. Her fath This was my first novel by Jessica Sorensen, and I can say without a doubt that she knows how to use words to evoke some very strong emotions. Her father's death years earlier scareed her emotionally but she's still living and learning. Her lifelong friend turned into her lifelong love When yet another tragedy changes everything, Nova immediately loses the will to keep going.
She's living but barely, breathing without thinking, lacking passion and direction. Her summer back from college and her new friend lead her to meeting Quinton Though Quinton's regrets are different than Nova's, they are no less tragic. Once the big man on campus, a guy with the world laid out before him, he is now just as hopeless and careless as Nova.
He's so weighed down with the guilt from his past than he simply doesn't care to move past it; doesn't actually feel as if he deserves to. While I was rooting for both Nova and Quinton, I felt like this road to healing that Nova was on was just a little off. She begins to hang with the wrong crowd, partying too much, trying to lose herself in the oblivion of substances to take her mind off of life.
Now, I'm not advocating drinking and drugs.
But to make having a few beers out to be some terrible stepping stone to a worse you was going a bit far. Even smoking some pot Gateway drug? That's the feeling I got her, and I didn't really want the very obvious lecture. Stay away from junkies Don't smoke pot or you'll end up a junkie yourself? Not so much. In case you haven't heard, this ends in a cliffhanger. I hate cliffies, but this kind really gets my goat.
Because this one ends in such way that I was more depressed after I put this down than I was when I realized why Nova and Quinton were such sad, lonely characters. My verdict The writing was fabulous, sometimes insightful, sometimes romantic? The story itself is one big book of emo depression. The epiphany was waaay too sudden for my taste. It goes from rock bottom to explosion of thoughtfulness within pages, and I felt that there was too little focus on the actual healing and too much focus on the rock bottom.
Still, I can't see giving this less than four stars because I was glued to the pages for the entire book. I will definitely be reading Sorenson's other series now. View all 54 comments.

I've been so tired of reading the same old stories but this was exciting and had my full attention the whole way. The story is told in alternating povs and yes these characters are broken and struggling and I found it real, raw and riveting.
This story deals with a lot of real life issues such as teen suicide, and drug use and I found the story to be relevant and captivating. Well Done Jessica Sorensen! This does end with a cliffhanger of sorts. View all 44 comments. Seriously her writing is just SO SO good!! This book is heartbreaking and so fcuking SAD!! Beautifully sad that it physically makes your heart ache for these characters. Who I was and who I should be. She is broken and so sad. Her past literally turned her into something else.
Nova's ex boyfriend committed suicide and 1 year later she is still trying to deal with the pain and the memories and cannot let them go Nova does everything she can to hold on to the memories and distracts herself with things she can control because she never wants to not have a routine or control ever again.
I smile, pedaling my bike faster. My tires crunch against the dirt as they spin and spin and I grip the handlebars as I speed down the hill, trying to win. He stays a ways ahead of me as we wind down the hill, trees around us, a blue sky above us, and the air smells like dirt and leaves. He usually does stuff like that, pretending that something happened so that it seems completely accidental.
So when he disappears around the corner and then I hear the sound of his tires slowing down I think: I pedal faster, hitting bumps, steering my bike around rocks, slowing down slightly when I reach the corner. When I reach him, I hop off my bike and drop it to the ground as I rush over to him, then kneel down in the dirt beside him.
The first thing I notice is how white his skin is, like the cotton falling off the trees. Then I see the fear in his eyes. Sheer terror that something bad is about to happen. Tears sting at my eyes. The look in his eyes makes me run back to my bike.
I get on it and pedal back up the hill. When I reach the top, I search the parking lot for someone. Then he tells me to take him back to my dad and we go on foot, running down the hill. I started making recordings of myself partly because I was interested in film and partly because it was the only way I could get my thoughts out.
There was also a teeny part of me that did it because it made me feel connected to my deceased boyfriend, Landon, because he made a video, minutes before he committed suicide. Because I let him fall from my life, just like I did Quinton.
I blink at the camera, telling myself not to let my mind go there and to keep positive. Looking back, I realize that Quinton entered my life for a reason. It may not have made sense when I first met him nearly a year ago, but it does now.
It can be so comforting, peaceful, serene. Blood rushes down from my head and vertigo sets in, sending the nearly empty room around me spinning. I brace my hand against the wall and make my way to the bedroom.
She skims the article on the screen. Things would be easier if that were the case. And things are never easy—life never is.
