    Recipe for a good book:- Racial diversity ✓- Sexual diversity ✓- Anti-abuse messages ✓- Anti-racism messages ✓- Cool space crew ✓- Down-to-earth romance (muaha) ✓This book was something out of this world, literally and figuratively speaking. Seriously though, I am hesitant to compare this to our beloved space gospel The Lunar Chronicles; however, dare I say that I might have enjoyed this a tiny bit more? DON'T YOU DARE JUDGE ME!This i...

    4.25 starsI hardly ever read Sci-Fi and I think I can count all my Sci-Fi reads on the fingers of one hand, which is why I didn’t really have high expectations when going into this book. But man, was I pleasantly surprised! Reading this story was so much fun!In this dual perspective novel, we follow Talia, a human princess, and Will, a half human/half mock starship captain, who forge an unlikely alliance after Talia is awoken from her cyosleep ...

    3.75/5 stars! I definitely enjoyed reading Our Dark Stars - the premise intrigued me when I first came across it and the story did not disappoint. Science fiction and fantasy are two of my favourite genres and Our Dark Stars was a perfect mix of the two. The world building was mind blowing and totally perfect for me as I love to read about stories with interactions between humans and robots! There's royalty, rebellion, artificial intelligence and...

    Received a copy from NetGalley for an honest review.I do love a good sci-fi every now and then so trust me when I saw this..Besides love a good sci-fi (or any kind of genre really) I do love a dual POV too. It just makes a book more interesting when there's a dual. Sometimes with multiple POVs one can get confused quite easily or you can get bored with just one POV. So I really like reading books with dual POVs - this book has it!Once I finished ...

    Our Dark Stars is a fully realized, captivating sci-fi adventure of astronomical proportions! It is fast paced, exciting, and beautiful! With daring characters, unique twists, and a fantastical futuristic setting, this one is sure to have you flying high!From the moment I read the synopsis I knew I had to read this one! It was immensely satisfying! I devoured it, and the sci-fi lover in me was extremely happy!There was beauty in the writing. The ...

    HELLO yet again, you can also find this review on my blog!---I’m a bit surprised by this book. Admittedly, I went into it for a quick read… but I wasn’t really expecting anything. I liked the aesthetic of the cover and the synopsis, so I was a bit optimistic. And then I was surprised because wow, this book was so much more than I’d expected it to be! This is told from two points of view, and for the first few chapters, they’re a hundred...

    CALLED IT! TOTALLY CALLED IT!! First of all I fell in LOOOOOVE with the cover! It's gorgeous!!!! However the one problem I do have with it is, the hair. It doesn't match the color of the character in the book...just sayin...This is a fun book none-the-less well some of it, sadly I found myself often bored. I like how it started I like the world building and many of the characters. But it just couldn't keep my attention. I couldn't really connect ...

    Song I Listened To While Writing ReviewI received an ARC for this on Netgalley for an honest review. Even though the book is already out and I read it a couple weeks ago, I'm just now having time to sit down and write a review. This review will be short, but that's not because I didn't like it, quite the opposite actually, I just don't want to give much away.Dis book! DISSSSS BOOKIE-WOOKIE was a big surprise for me. The world building, the charac...

    This book to me had the makings of a good book, but because of the brevity of the novel, I felt like the multiple unexplored elements stopped the book from being able to delve in deeper.Character development was very weak and the relationships in the book were not well built or put together well so it all seemed very fake and not very in depth. Not only that but the main female protagonist to me was very annoying and didn’t really have any rede...

    I really enjoyed this sci-fi space young adult adventure. It kind of felt like a fairy tale retelling, set in space that straddles the young adult/new adult genre line with royal intrigue and betrayal. The cover is so freakin gorgeous!Talia is a princess and next in line for the throne. She is everything you expect from a princess stereotype. She is entitled, adored, pampered. So when her grandmother tells her what she expects from her Talia does...

    I loved a lot about this book. First, look at that stunning cover! The colors are so amazing, and just the whole layout of it looks like perfection. (Kinda sad here that I “only” got the e-book version of this, but a big thanks here to Blaze Publishing! This did not influence my rating of the book in any way, though.) Also I’m such a sucker for good space action and strong characters. The whole plot line was very unique and I loved how the ...

    I absolutely loved this book! I love sci fi and I love cyborgs. I think it's almost when I read a book about cyborgs fighting for their rights or when space travelling is involved. But this book had so much more than what I expected! Yes it had cyborgs fighting for rights and yes it had space travel, but it also had human enslavement, a century old secret, and many more twists and turns! Talia Starchaser is an 18 year old princess who is engaged ...

    3.5 stars, to be more accurate. OUR DARK STARS was just the kind of YA sci-fi that I really enjoy! It was very entertaining, filled with just the right amount of action, romance, story and humor to keep me turning the pages. It starts off a bit rocky for me, with me being partial to one POV character (Will) over the other (Talia), but it evens out into something pretty darn great by the end. I definitely think that if you're looking for something...

    I received a digital ARC copy from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. Our Dark Stars was really a good fast-paced Sci-Fi! Obviously, it is not the book of the year but I enjoyed it anyway! We have spaaace, sassy characters, a bit of romance (even if it could have been developed and deepened better), action and plot twists! It has a conclusion (since it's a stand-alone) but if the authors want, they could write a sequel because there are...

Been meaning to read it for some time so imagine my delight when I spotted the blog tour and the chance to review it before it came out! I just had to take it! And in the end I quite loved this book, I flew through it. There were some parts that I didn’t quite like, but for most the good parts won.We have two characters; Will and Talia.

    Y'ALL. The first month of 2018 isn't even half over when I'm typing this, and I've already read one (well, two, but more on that later this week) of my absolute favorite reads of the year. 2018, Audrey Grey, and Krystal Wade have all blessed me.First off, let's take a moment to appreciate that absolutely gorgeous cover. I know I've talked about my usual distaste for people on covers thing before, but I can't help but make heart eyes at this one. ...

    Yes, this is another space book! I'm kinda really just crazy for space books right now. (Haha) This crazy space story is a page-turner. I always wanted to know what would happen next. The world building is my favorite part of this book, the writing just paints this world with starts and action scenes.Leo is my favorite characters. I enjoyed the story more whenever he was in the scenes. I don't know why he just lightings the story.This story is gr...

    I received this E-arc from Netgalley in return for my honest opinion-Actual rating: 4,5-This book was good. Not good in a way of: 'Yeah it was good, just good' but more like: 'This book was so good that I need to recover for a month or so.'The characters were really cool. I loved them. the only problem for me was that there wasn't really a lot of information about how all of them looked, their backstories and stuff like that. I would have loved t...

    Space. Princess. Space ships. Ragtag crew. Robots. I mean, you had me at space. This book is so much fun! Talia Starchaser, heir to the throne is left floating in space where she's discovered a hundred years later by mock capital Will Perault. Talia finds herself in a world where humans are now enslaved by the mocks (human like robots) that her people once enslaved. With the queen hunting her down, Talia must fight to survive and figure out her p...

    Mini review:I received this e-arc via Netgalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This was a trainwreck. I was really looking forward to reading this. I generally enjoy sci-fi. I did not enjoy Will’s point of view at all. Talia was much better but that couldn’t save the book. I didn’t care for any of the characters except Talia. She was the only one that was tolerable. It was action packed and a fast read I’ll give it th...

    I loved this!The story line was interesting with a princess waking up from her cryosleep a hundred years later in a ship with a crew of criminal mocks and a captain who was once a flesher (human) but is now all metal and wires. The world building is intriguing in itself and though humans vs machines has often been seen as an idea, this was different. Here, the story doesn’t get biased and doesn’t right tick humanity. There’s a well built ...

    I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Our Dark Stars is a book I've been eager for ever since I heard about the collaboration. Audrey Grey is one of my favorite authors, I've devoured every single one of her books. I am fairly new to Krystal Wade's writing but I picked up a book of hers before this one to familiarise myself and she's definitely amazing. With the culmin...
