This was really great I can t say why I docked a star, because it s spoilery, but I ll have a video review up soon going over my thoughts what not.
This was excellent, I loved it Here s my full booktalk youtu 6tHgsZN9XWA
The universe stops and waits for us.She opens her palm and she s going to take my hand She s supposed to take my hand We re meant to walk through this world together I see it in her eyes We are meant to be.2 1 2 stars I tried I m sorry, but I tried I just couldn t love this like I wanted to.My problem with Yoon s Everything, Everything was the twist That awful twist But her style was enjoyable and easy to read, so I was eager to give her books another shot I was honestly ready to love The Sun Is [...]
How this cover was created youtu SJkjaapoNkw
Romantic and adorable, with a perfect balance of heart wrenching moments Endlessly hopeful yet still grounded in reality Pretty much everything I want from a YA contemporary I m two for two with Nicola Yoon books read and loved, so there s no doubt I ll be reaching for her next novel as soon as it comes out
Within the first 20 pages of THE SUN IS ALSO A STAR, I knew I was reading something special, and within the first 50, I knew this was going to be one of my favorite books of 2016 Natasha and Daniel are funny, flawed, fully developed characters who feel as familiar as old friends Their love story is anything but simple, and you will root for them until the very last page Nicola intersperses their story with beautifully wrought and deeply considered musings on other characters, physics, history, b [...]
This book is incredibly beautiful in so many ways that I can t even begin to explain right now
So this book isn t entirely realistic Too many coincidences But what it is is SUPER cute Natasha and Daniel meet Then meet again And again Could it be fate pushing them together Natasha doesn t want to think so after all, she trusts science, not concepts that cannot be scientifically proven.Daniel is moonstruck over Natasha Unlike her, he believes in fate and love at first sight Now he just has to convince Natasha that they were meant for each other.It sounds so cheesy and clich d, doesn t it Li [...]

I m sad this book wasn t for me I m not really one for flash flood romances I don t like philosophy conversations that never seem realistic, which leads to characters that don t seem real at all Was very hurt by the ableism in Everything, Everything too.
I really really loved this book It was an entirely unique story with a powerful message Definitely a read I would recommend toe v e r y o n e.Originally, I had issues getting into the book The narration is 100% individual as not only do we have Natasha Daniel s perspective, but we have mini chapters from a wide variety of characters We have character s share stories from the past, side characters who are only in one scene, characters we will never hear from again, even very arbitrary things like [...]
Received an advanced reader copy for review from the publisher I liked this one even than Everything, Everything Nicola Yoon is just an amazing writer Definitely a staple for your contemporary collection.Video review to come
DNF AT 30% in I m sure it s just me, but I just couldn t connect with the characters Everything was a bit too unrealistic even for my taste I just couldn t buy all this falling in love in less than 24 hours and it felt a bit cheesy Maybe it s poor timing of reading this one or maybe it s just not for me.
My heart aches but I m so happy at the same time HOW DOES SHE DO THIS Here s my review youtube watch v Swubk
We have big, beautiful brains We invent things that fly Fly We write poetry We are capable of big lives A big history Why settle Why choose the practical thing, the mundane thing We are born to dream and make the things we dream about Reread and this book still speaks my language It still makes my heart ache to the fullest and gives me hope like no other I remember reading this book around the same time last year and feeling that it came to me at a specific point in my life when I needed to hear [...]
I m between 4.5 and 5 stars, but I ll round it up.No, I m not crying You re crying Daniel has always tried to be a dutiful son to his parents, who emigrated from South Korea, but he s always played second fiddle to his older brother Charlie, who is confident, smarter, and has had a visceral dislike for Daniel since they were younger.But with Charlie s recent academic fall from grace, their parents are starting to put pressure on Daniel to follow their wishes, which include getting into Yale an [...]
This is a book about how the smallest gestures can form the biggest pictures, how the smallest actions can change the course of a life How seeing a girl can change your life How falling in love with your secretary can change the course of someone s life forever How swerving in a car can get two teens together How calling a security officer can save her life It sort of tore my heart into a million pieces.Fuck, okay I don t know how to explain how much I feel about this book Let s start here Befor [...]
This book is so beautiful I am crying So many emotions I really loved Natasha and Daniel A lot I loved that this story in any other context would be insta love and essentially was but because there was so much character development and how long it was it didn t feel like it I loved being in New York City with them I loved their whole day it was so great Also the epilogue was everything And I need a sequel novella like NOW.
4.5 StarsRepresentation Black Jamaican , undocumented MC, Korean love interestYES I read this back to back with The Hate U Give and I m just so here for black girls in YA right now I devoured Natasha and Daniel s story I can t say enough good things about it Really, I only have one complaint, which I ll get to.But first and foremost, this book is genius It takes place in 3 perspectives the 2 characters, and then the universe, which shows you the outside perspective of characters you meet in pass [...]
So adorable I loved everything about itexcept for one thing Just like with EVERYTHING, EVERYTHING, interestingly enough Review to come.
1.5 starsWarning This reviews is just mostly gifs.I probably should have done this before reviewing this book.This is my style thoughSo you now have been warned Keep reading if you want If you are a fangirl troll.ease know this Because this book was just stupid FOR ME Half of GR loves it More than half actually Go and love their reviews.The book is told in choppy little chapters, from multiple points of view This really could have worked, it s worked for me before There was not enough to make m [...]
It s Natasha last day in New York and she is scrambling to figure out a way to stop her family from being deported back to Jamaica So when she meets Daniel the timing is a little inconvenient Daniel the son of South Korean immigrants has always been an obedient son yet second best to his older brother Charlie When his older brother is home from Harvard on probation the pressure on Daniel is only intensified Daniel heads out that day to go to his interview for Yale, pursuing his preordained futur [...]
Yeah, I cried I was so happy to get this book because I loved Nicola Yoon s book, Everything, Everything I loved this one too Natasha is being deported to Jamaica because of some stupidity on her fathers part She came to America when she was eight and she s now going into her senior year and doesn t want to leave her friends and life Daniel is an American Korean boy who just wants to live his own life but his parents have other ideas Daniel and his brother Charlie are to be doctors and that is t [...]
This could ve so easily been another clich , sappy teenage love story But it was so much than that Nicola Yoon took the familiar elements from young adult contemporary novels yes, even insta love and managed to create something original I especially appreciated the chapters that broke the mold, that looked outside of the lives of our two main characters, Natasha and Daniel, and commented on the people they passed in the street or met during their whirlwind 12 hour romance And I loved the ending [...]
This was a nice little book with a sweet story A great book for a simple escape While the scenarios in it are highly improbable, if you can suspend your disbelief for a few hours, it is quite charming.Lots of chapters Lots of SHORT chapters I LOVE SHORT CHAPTERS I needed a book with short chapters since I am currently reading or have recently read some books with loooooooog chapters I enjoyed this as much as Everything Everything Looks like I can continue to count on Yoon for a simple getaway.
A constellation worthy love story I can t wait for you all to read this one.
HANDS DOWN MY FAVORITE CONTEMPORARY BOOK OF THE YEAR It was beautiful.It was magical.It was heartbreaking.It dealt with immigration, strained family life, racism, it had diversityIt was a beautiful, beautiful book.Please listen to this book, I LOVED the audio version to pieces
Ahhhhh Why, Nicola Yoon, why Why am I reading your books in he first place Why am I looking past the ridiculously sappy teen romance that litters the pages of your books and feverishly turning the pages Is it the insanely short chapters The story The different points of view The random science lessons Why I was skeptical at first The plot summary on the inside jacket of the book almost made me throw up, and I got really dizzy from all the eye rolling This book also takes on a serious tone from [...]
