A Conspiracy of Stars review


This is going to be a quick one.

I went into this book not really knowing the full plot which is okay. It was different than the usual YA I’ve been reading.

What I didn’t like:

It was so sloooooooow. I do understand that we needed that build up and the backstory and etc, but I found myself drifting more than once.

Even though the world building was there, I still felt as though I wasn’t present…that I needed more. How? I don’t even know. It was just a feeling I had. I felt misplaced.

What I did like:

Octavio is a great character and a solid protagonist and she drives the story well. I also loved the diversity of this book as most of the characters are black. I recently read Binti so I am happy that we get to see them represented more.

I like that Olivia Cole created an entire planet with new species and everything.

I liked the friendships and the romance.

I think that I needed more and I am probably going to read the next one when it comes out.

Overall, I felt as though some things were missing for me and the plot.
