Review: The Sun is Also a Star

February 7, 2017 No Comments

The Sun is Also a Star just wasn’t really my cup of tea.  It’s certainly well-written, and it’s probably a great book for fans of the Young Adult/Romance genre.  The ways in which the character’s lives all intertwine is interesting, and we get to explore a rich world in the span of a day. I particularly enjoyed the way the author delved into the inner thoughts and motivations of pretty much every character encountered by the two leads. Those asides were in many ways more interesting to me than the story itself. The plot of this book shares two common threads that I tend to find with any sort of romance: it’s quite predictable, and extremely unrealistic. I can forgive it a bit more in this book since the leads are still just kids, but it still just doesn’t work for me. I was already over halfway through before I even felt particularly invested in the outcome. For me, that’s just too long to start getting into the story. I can see why this book got such good reviews and I feel like it’s an objectively good book. I just didn’t personally enjoy it.  If you’re into sappy love-at-first-sight style romance, then this is the book for you. If I’d picked this up from the library, I probably wouldn’t have finished reading it.

This book was one of my Book of the Month selections, and I signed up for the service partially to expand my reading horizons and expose myself to new books I wouldn’t normally read. Unfortunately, it’s not working out so well for me so far. I think I need to be pickier with the books I choose. I’m not normally a big YA reader and I tend to detest most romance novels, so the fact that I didn’t love this book is not surprising.
