WELCOME

Hello And Welcome Everyone, I am so excited because I signed up to review an ARC(Advanced Reader Copy) ofΒ When Stars Come OutΒ and I received an email that I was approved. Goody, Goody Gumdrop.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR(FROM GOODREADS)

Scarlett St.Clair lives in Oklahoma with her husband. She has a Master’s degree in Library Science and Information Studies and spends a lot of time researching reincarnation, unsolved murders and Greek mythology-all of which made it into her debut novel, When Stars Come Out (OCT 2018).

WHAT I EXPECTED

To be quite honest, I really didn’t know what to expect this type of book in these genres mostly because it’s the first time ever reading Urban Fantasy and Young Adult(YA) for me. I’m always up for trying new genres and new authors and never know if I’m going to like them or not. I guess in a case like this I set my rating middle grade. Middle grade for me is 2 1/2 stars. Then after I read the book fully I judge to make it higher or lower. A description of the bookΒ When Stars come out by Scarlett St. ClairΒ is listed below.

DESCRIPTION OF BOOK

Anora Silby can see the dead and turns spirits into gold coins, two things she would prefer to keep secretΒ as she tries to lead a normal life at her new school.Β After all, she didn’t change her identity for nothing.

As it turns out, hiding her weirdness is just one of many challenges. By the end of her first day, she’s claimed the soul of a dead girlΒ Β on campus and lost the coin. Turns out, the coin gives others the ability to steal souls, and when a classmate end up dead, there’s no mistaking the murder weapon.

Navigating the loss of her Poppa, her mother’s unpredictable behavior, and Roundtable, an anonymous student gossip app threatening to expose her, are hard enough.Β Now she must find the person who stole her coin before more lives are lost, but that means making herself a target for the Order, an organization that governs the dead on Earth-and they want Anora and her powers for themselves.

WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK

For reading these genres for the very first time I really enjoyed reading the book. I was pleasantly surprised of how interesting this was. I liked how it was a page turner(I didn’t want to put it down), It kept my interest and it didn’t take long to read. I started reading on November 9, 2018 and ended November 11, 2018. I guess when I started at 2 1/2 stars I started to low. I also thought it may have bordered on the Sci-Fi genre but wasn’t sure. I also liked the cover of this book and it showed how much trouble this girl was having and the despair she was in.

WHAT I DIDN’T LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK

That’s easy. I didn’t like the use of the F-word and some other bad language that was used. Other than that I really enjoyed this book. I give it 4 1/2 / 5 stars. If the bad language weren’t used it would be rated about 5 1/2 or 6 stars in book. I liked it that much.Β 

WHY I SIGNED UP TO REVIEW THIS BOOK

I think it’s important to put this section in my review not because other reviewers do it to but because I think the author, other authors, all my readers and viewers should know why.Β 

In all the book blogs I follow, I have yet to see one reviewer put in why they signed up to review the book. I think that is to bad because I think readers would be interested in knowing. I know I would.Β 

So onto why I signed up to reviewΒ When Stars Come OutΒ because when I read the blurb I found it interesting and the cover of the book well—can we say it was catchy and right cover for the book. I know this might sound crazy but after reading the blurb and looking at the cover and well basically studying it something called to me saying you have to sign up to review this book, you have to sign up so that’s what I did.

When a book calls to me it usually ends up being a good book.

HOW I JUDGE BOOKS

How I judge books is pretty simple:

1πŸ“š=Lousy

2πŸ“š=OK

3πŸ“š=I Like It

4πŸ“š=I Really Like It

5πŸ“š=Excellent Book With No Bad Language

RECOMMENDATION AND WHO SHOULD READ THE BOOK.

First let me say my rating is my opinion only. Since it’s a Young Adult genre I would recommend this bookΒ  to teenagers and up. Be warned though there is some use of the F-word and other bad language but not much. I would let the parents use their best judgement.Β

  1. That does sound a great book and not one of the run-of-the-mill stories either. Thank you for such an honest review. The use of bad language is a real turn off for us, so we may well not read this, which is a shame really as the author has clearly worked very well to produce a good piece. But I appreciate that language does convey certain attitudes and cultural meaning. We shall bear it in mind when we look for a new book.
