And All the Stars by Andrea Höst
[Published September 30th, 2012 by Andrea Höst. 204 pages.]
Review: It's so hard not to give
this five stars for the ending alone, but in the middle there was a time
in which I grew bored and felt myself not wanting to read it as much as
I had in the beginning. Thus the four star rating. Once I got through
that snag though, everything happened in brilliant quick succession and I
don't regret it for a minute.
This is a breath of fresh air in a
highly saturated genre. Höst twisted it and gave it a unique spin. It's
worth the read, even if you're just sick of post-apocalyptic
stories--here's one that takes place in the heat of it.
part of the book sucked me in so completely, I swear the last time I
looked at the clock it was ten, and when I finally resurfaced, dazed, it
was midnight. Thank you Andrea Höst, for a dazzling trip.
