Welcome back my little book nerds and welcome to all the new comers! This month I finished off my book from last month and GUYS.. it was SO GOOD. I was so surprised but I ended up finishing the whole second half of the novel in a day. If you haven’t read my “what I’m reading in July” definitely check it out. The ending of the second novel got me more excited to sit down and start the third and last novel in the series.
This month I read “The sun is also a star” by Nicola Yoon. The novel follows Natasha, a young Jamacian teen who is trying to fight her and her families deportation on her last day in the U.S. all while meeting Daniel Bae, who at the beginning was nothing but a stranger and ends up being so much more. This book broke my heart in a very weird way. I think I related to it in the sense that both my parents are also immigrants and though they have been here for years I can still empathize with people struggling with immigration policies.
I don’t want to spill too much of the details but there are a lot of different stories that come together to deliver a story written in the stars. For someone who is a big believer that the universe has my future already written, I really liked how everything in the story seemed destined. I loved that it seemed like fate brought Natasha and Daniel together. This novel acknowledges many issues that are current in our society and puts a storyline to an issue that most of us are fortunate enough to not have to experience.
overall I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it to all of you. Let me know in the comments if you’ve read it and what you thought of it. I would love to hear from all of you.
