Kricket Hollowell is normally not one to wish upon stars; she believes they’re rarely in her favor. Well versed at dodging caseworkers from Chicago’s foster care system, the past few years on her own have made Kricket an expert at the art of survival and blending in. With her 18th birthday fast approaching, she dreams of the day when she can stop running and find what her heart needs most: a home.
Trey Allairis hates Earth and doubts that anyone from his world can thrive here. What he’s learning of Kricket and her existence away from her true home only confirms his theory. But, when he and Kricket lie together under the stars of Ethar, counting them all may be easier than letting her go. Kyon Ensin’s secrets number the stars; he knows more about Kricket’s gifts than anyone and plans to possess her because of them. He also knows she’s more valuable than any fire in the night sky. He’ll move the heavens and align them all in order to make her his own. When everything in their world can be broken, will Kricket rely upon love to save her under different stars?”


After a lot of heartache from declined requests on NetGalley, I’ve been approved! YES! Not only for one, but four books and this gorgeous is one of them. I’ll include them on the Sunday post this weekend okay? Anyway, I’ve long for this since last year, but eventually forgot about it. Lol. I’ve stumbled upon it on Netgalley yesterday, requested for it and received an approval today. Yay! A lot of fantasy readers love this. I’ve included a five star, three star and one star rating reviews..

OMG this book was so captivating! I couldn’t put it down, I was hooked from the first chapter! I am so in love with all the characters, this book has it all. Lots of action, romance, humor,and dystopian! Under Different Stars takes place on both Earth and an alternate planet called Ethar which lends to the sci-fi feeling. I love the world Amy creates, it’s so interesting. Her descriptions of the people and places, especially on Ethar, help you picture this world. I really felt like I was there!

I thought this book was fun. But your reaction will no doubt depend on whether you regard this book as satire, a serious YA romance or work of science fiction, or a fun blend of all of the above. It does have a lot of five star reviews, so I’m guessing most readers appreciate it even more than I. Thus I will not be alone, presumably, in looking forward to the next installment in the trilogy.

Ugh, this book was such a disappointment. I felt the author picked out these really difficult and unique names for her new kind and geography, and she thought putting in two alpha males where one was her consort-to-be and the other was the one who the female lead truly loved and that would make everyone go like ‘awww’ or whatever the reaction she desired. But for me, it was huge fail. I dunno why I even bothered finishing it. But I thought maybe I was being hard and so I kept on reading and kept on losing interest. God. This book was mildly torturous. I did not like the characters. I did not like the dialogues or anything. And it felt the characters were trying too hard to act cool and innocent in some cases.

I’ll definitely look out for those things that were pointed out so I can have an honest review. Hihi! I’m so excited. I hope this book turned out to be what I’ve expected. I’ll save my thoughts for my review okay? 🙂 Book review to follow. For now, happy reading to me. 😀


Teaser Tuesday #20

I’ve decided to join this ’cause I think it’s pretty fun and easy. Plus I really want to quote smart retorts, full blown bullying, words of wisdom, swoon worthy lines and the like without giving much to readers about the entire book. A quote or two won’t hurt I guess. So this is how you do it:

  1. Grab your current read.
  2. Randomly open a page.
  3. Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page.
  4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  5. Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My teasers came from the same book as for my Currently Reading feature 🙂

“”You can stop wishing for Prince Charming to come and rescue you.” Enrique says with a grin, watching me wrap my scarf around my neck and put on my mittens. “I’m right here Kricket. Enrique and Kricket Rodriguez.. that sounds chill.””

“”Families are supposed to love you no matter what.” I say softly, looking into his dark brown eyes. “You’ve really never had a family, have you?” he asks rhetorically.”

What are your thoughts about my teasers? 🙂 Anyway, you could share some teasers on your current read too. Comment the link of your own Teaser Tuesday so I can check it out and have an idea of amazing books that I would want to read.
