I know wow! Two blog posts in one week!?
Yes, I am feeling quite generous.
Anyway I am here with a review for These Broken Stars by Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner.
Here is a quick video I filmed about it, you can scroll down for some more thoughts on the book:
Alright, in case you don’t know I REALLLLLLYYYYYYYY hate book covers with pictures of a person or people on it. Most of the time its a distressed looking girl or a girl and a boy and to be honest that is a MAJOR TURN OFF when I want to pick out a book. I still don’t know why book publishers insist on those lame pictures for covers but whatever.
But there are some exceptions to this. I personally LOVE the cover for Kiera Cass’ The Selction series. All the covers are beyond beautiful and to add to that list is These Broken Stars (like I say in my vid) the cover is perfect!
Moving right along, here is a list of things that I liked about this book:
- The interesting plot twist with ‘The Whispers’
- Finding out the truth about certain things
- THE LAST QUOTE IN THE NOVEL IS FREAKING PERFECTTTT
- Slow development to romance
Things I did not like about this novel:
- It was slow pace. I wish it could have been a bit faster.
Overall I think if you like the Matched series by Ally Condie this would be a perfect read for you.
Or if you want a nice book to read while on vacation THIS IS IT! Folks!
I’ll probably make a list of the summer books I recommend and for sure These Broken Stars is one of them.
I think anyone ages 12+ can read this book.
Overall like I said in my video I rate this book a 7.5/10. I enjoyed it and I can’t wait for the next book! 😀
