Hello! Welcome to my stop on the As Far As The Stars blog tour! I was kindly gifted this book by Nina at HQ Stories so thank you so much! I hope you enjoy my review and check out the next stop on the tour after mine below!
How do you change what’s already written in the stars?
Christopher is the sort of guy that no one notices, yet when Air catches sight of him making intricate paper birds in the airport, she can’t look away.
But their worlds are about to collide in ways they never expected. Someone they love is on Flight 0217 from London Heathrow. And it’s missing.
Convinced that her brother was on a different flight, Air drives them hundreds of miles across the country, on a trip that will change their lives forever.
But how do you tell the person you’re falling for that you might just be the reason their life has fallen apart?
This book was a strange one for me! I really enjoyed the plot and was excited to get to know the characters more and get into why Air and her brother were so close.
I love emotional contemporary books with a love story in the middle. These two characters both have loved ones on a missing plane and you get to see their anguish and worry at points throughout the book however the actions they take whilst not knowing where their family member is, is quite strange.
During the road trip Air and Christopher begin to bond over their families and their little quirks. I connected with Air because she was like me as a child, she didn’t want to dress girly and play with dolls she wanted to explore and get stuck in with her brother Blake. I’ve always wanted an older brother to explore the wilderness with. Christopher is quiet yet brave and they do bounce off each-other once they get past the awkward first stages of their friendship.
I did feel like they forgot about their loved ones at times, e.g they went skinny dipping and jumped off a high rock into a rock pool randomly which i didn’t understand. Also the way Air kept talking about her brother Blake and the way she described his body at a certain point made me a feel a bit uncomfortable. I feel like everything she did she mentioned her brother and it was like she couldn’t go a second with mentioning him.
Although i found a few things that irritated me this is still a good book to read, the writing style is easy to follow and it would appeal to a lot of people. Also the book cover is so pretty and the astronomy side of the story was really fascinating.
I rated this book ⭐⭐⭐⭐
