A fun read

There were numerous reasons I wanted to read/write a review on Stars Collide; I will list some of them here: *Hollywood (been there, love it!) *Movie Stars (although I have no desire to be one, it IS fun to think about being rich and people thinking I'm ALL THAT!) *LOVE...
There were numerous reasons I wanted to read/write a review on Stars Collide; I will list some of them here: *Hollywood (been there, love it!) *Movie Stars (although I have no desire to be one, it IS fun to think about being rich and people thinking I'm ALL THAT!) *LOVE (I love a great love story!) *Television sitcom (I think it would be fun to be an actress on a television show! I can be a fabulous drama queen-ask my family!) *Comedy (I love to laugh!) What I thought would be a "fun book", turned into an amazing personal adventure! I LOVED this book! I loved the entertainment it provided-and that I couldn't put it down! When my long workday ended, I loved that I had a fabulous adventure to run home to read! Not to mention, as a parent, I loved that I had a great book to get excited about and read while encouraging my children to do the same! I have one of her books on order and can't wait to read every one seh's written! I love the way she writes, her writing style, and how her book flows. I truly admire her as an author and want to grow up to be just like her! I would HIGHLY recommend this book if you're anything like me! You will NOT be sorry, I promise!

I downloaded this on my Nook when it was offered for free. I must confess that I struggled to get through the first 2 chapter and then gave up. Perhaps it improved further in but, oh my goodness, those first two chapters were painful to read and laden with one cliche after another. "His baby blues stared down into my soul" "Everything seemed to move in slow motion" "Just as Scott swept me into his arms for that magical moment..."? In Chapter 1? Perhaps this is a sequel and all the character development had taken place in a precious novel. I don't know. I had understood it to be the first in a series. "Christian fiction" should be a synonym for excellence. Regretfully, this book made it a synonym for mediocrity.

    Ok

    The story started out ok, but then i felt like everything was linked to being a Christian to the point where the story got awkward because it wasnt a natural flow. I also feel as if Grandmas character had some completely out there moments to the point where it just made the story worse off.

    Monotonous

    I've read three other books by this author and she had a similar issue. The female character in every scene gets choked up. In the weddings by bella series, every person had tears in their eyes on every other page. In this book, she consistently had a lump in her throat. After the weddings by bella series i said i wouldn't likely read anymore by mrs. Thompson, but i wasn't paying attention and bought this book. I quickly realized my mistake with the monotony. Also, the story didn't have the necessary dramatic elements to make it a truly gripping read. The final "episode" of the show is quite fun though.

    Too over the top for me

    Started out cute, turned too religious for me. Glad it was free.

    Appropriate?

    Is this book appropriate for a 13 year old girl?

    Okay...

    Could not get into this book, it is okay for a time-waster or trying to fall asleep, which I found myself doing each time I tried to read this.

    Not really...

    Great idea but the book is either to wordy or it's just not going anywhere. The two characters who are supposed to have this budding relationship rarely ever interact directly. I have read several chapters and have decided not to finish. To many other good books out there to read.
