Chasing Fireflies, Taylor Dean - Review

After reading some of the other reviews people have written, I feel that my opinion on this book is not exactly common, however I promised I would give an honest review, so here it is.


The description and scene setting in this book was okay, but not spectacular. I could picture everything, but only just, and I had to add in some parts of my own too.


The main character, Savannah, seemed rather too optimistic, and she was also content with everything that happened. I find it unrealistic that she wouldn't disagree with anything.


The story in itself seemed like quite a popular plot. One that has been redone many times. I'm definitely not saying that this isn't original, or that it has been copied, but I did feel a strong sense of Deja Vu while reading.


To be frank, I had to stop reading after Chapter 4, because the book just didn't capture my interest, and I found myself forcing my way through. It pains me to give a bad review, but it had to be done.

There Once Were Stars, Melanie McFarlane Review

There Once Were Stars - Melanie McFarlane

There Once Were Stars was one of the best books I've read in a while. At first, I thought it would be way too serious, and that I wouldn't like it, but actually I was wrong.


The world building and description in this story was amazing. I could picture everything so perfectly. It really was like a movie playing out in my head.


The main character, Nat, is very curious, and while she doesn't seem very confident, she is sure of a lot of things. I admire her need to know all the answers, no matter what it takes. She's so smart, although slightly naive in the beginning. Overall, I found her personality something to look up to.


The plot twists in this were so expertly done, I had to pause for moments in between. Once I started reading, I couldn't stop, and that's what made me give this 5/5 stars.
