The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon (11/1/2016) - Ever since I read Everything, Everything (Yoon, 9/15) I've been waiting for the next book by Yoon. And also dreading it, because that book was, well, everything!

And now we have this. It was beautiful and heartfelt. Daniel and Natasha are on fate's rollercoaster and can't get the ride to stop. Daniel is destined to go to Yale and eventually become a doctor while Natasha's family is being deported. Tonight! 

Following a series of signs, they meet. Combine this with The New York Times's quiz, The 36 Questions That Lead to Love (which you can try here). Add in alternating chapters, some fully realized secondary characters, and a strong sense of place and wow, Yoon has done it again!

I say pre-order this one for your middle school and high school libraries. 

Want more reading ideas this week? Check out:


  1. Thanks for reminding me that Zeroes is still sitting on my TBR mountain. I liked A Study in Charlotte and had Everything, Everything but donated it to my HS Media Center before I had a chance to read it. I'll have to check it out next school year. Come see what I read last week here. Happy reading!

  2. The Sun is Also a Star sounds AMAZING! I, too, loved Everything, Everything so I must read this as soon as it comes out!

  3. I like the "highlight". That's different from other blogs!

  4. I haven't read Everything, Everything nor the new one even though I got the ARC. Obviously I need to fix that.

    Happy Fourth, and happy reading this week! :)
    P.S. LOVED LOVED LOVED LOVED reuniting at ALA. <3

  5. Oh wow, The Sun is Also a Star sounds fantastic, can't wait to get my hands on a copy!!


Thanks for chatting! I love comments and look forward to reading yours! I may not reply right away, but I am listening! Keep reading and don't forget to be awesome!
