Book Review: The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon

4/5 stars!

“Everyone here has seen everything before, and they don’t really care that it’s all new to you.”

If there’s anything reading Ms. Nicola Yoon’s works proves, it’s that she’s a truly creative, dynamic, sensitive writer who knows what it really means to think outside the box and offer the world of YA contemporaries/romance newness and diversity.

The Sun Is Also A Star is a whimsical story of fate and destiny approached in a scientific way and I think that’s pretty cool. I say whimsical because it almost reads like a fairytale especially with the different POVs, the insta-love, the serendipities and the heavy foreshadowing aspects of the novel.

I clearly understand now why many readers wouldn’t like it. A lot of its parts are quite unrealistic, even cheesy and the random POVs somehow made the narrations seem fragmented. In other words, it has quite a lot of flaws and yet I obviously still liked it. (I was also probably destined to like the book though no matter what because this was my husband’s birthday gift to me last year. ;))

Imagine a little girl with freckles, a smear of chocolate on her front tooth in a rumpled dress and yet still manages to look so adorable. That’s how I felt about the novel. Somehow for me, all those flawed elements put together made the entire story adorably insightful and well like fairytales, magical. I look forward to the next book the author releases. 😉

Hi! I'm Aj from the Philippines. Obviously I love to read and write and from years of experience I have learned that when you love something so much, you would do it absolutely for free so here I am writing stuff for all people to see in the hopes that at least one or maybe two souls could benefit or get little inspiration from what they will read from this blog. Enjoy and spread the love! ;)
