I really wanted to like this book. Janice Thompson’s Bella series was fantastic. So when Star Collide became available for review I jumped at the chance.
To be honest…the writing is just as great as the Bella series….and after I read the short synopsis I thought I would love it. I just could not get into the story. I am so glad Stars Collide has gotten great reviews all over the web because I think it is a great book….I just could not get into the story. I found the story-line unbelievable and I just was not drawn in by the characters. I found myself questioning if some of these things could happen in Hollywood and I also at times was turned off at the overly Christians tones (yes I am very aware it is a Christian book but as a Christian I also want to see struggles and depth of character.) I just did not find myself liking the main characters the more I read about them the more I just did not enjoy them. Things just seemed to easy for them and the “drama” of their lives something I just did not relate to. I did enjoy the bit where someone would quote a line from a movie and someone would guess the movie….that was fun!
The cover is terrific and one reason I was interested in the book….I so love a good book that has a fabulous cover.
As I said I really wanted to like this book but it just was not my thing…. but that is the great thing about the book world… there are plenty of books for each of us! And I know that a lot of people are going to LOVE this book! I for one will be waiting for Ms Thompson’s next series to give it a try :) You should definitely check out Stars Collide and see for yourself if you would enjoy the book!
About the Book:
Kat Jennings and Scott Murphy don’t just play two people who are secretly in love on a television sitcom–they are also head over heels for each other in real life. When the lines between reality and TV land blur, they hope they can keep their relationship under wraps. But when Kat’s grandmother, an aging Hollywood starlet with a penchant for wearing elaborate evening gowns from Golden Age movies, mistakes their on-screen wedding proposal for the real deal, things begin to spiral out of their control. Will their secret be front-page news in the tabloids tomorrow? And can their budding romance survive the onslaught of paparazzi, wedding preparations, and misinformed in-laws?
From the sound stage to a Beverly Hills mansion to the gleaming Pacific Ocean, Stars Collide takes readers on a roller-coaster tour of Tinseltown, packing both comedic punch and tender emotion.
Thank you to Revell for the complimentary copy of Star Collide for my honest review.
