Review: 

 

I fell in love with the characters, the story, the cover, Can I say I have another number one favorite novel of 2017? to be comletely honest, her No Ordinary Stars series is number one also . . .

This review is going to be SPOILER FREE! YAY!

I first want to thank the amazing author for giving me an E-copy of her beautiful book!

I loved everything about this novel. It was perfect and . . . I wouldn’t ask M.C. Frank to change anything–not even the pain.

Image result for winky face gif

 

I don’t usually read NA but I am so happy that I wanted to read this! It was so good, I sadly haven’t read Jane Austen novels . . . DON’T HATE ME! XD

I want to start with Ari, she is a stunt girl in a movie and . . . she’s partly Greek which is awesome. I loved Ariadne. JUST LOOKED THE NAME UP!

Ariadne, in Greek mythology, was the daughter of Minos, King of Crete, Son of Zeus and his queen Pasiphaë, daughter of Helios.

I love Ari’s name so much more now XD

Image result for goddess gif

 

Now for our Wes, I loved him as soon as he entered the pages and Hated him and loved him and then hated him again. But mostly loved him and wanted him to just be happy.

He wasn’t your typical stereotype Hollywood actor, at first, he totally was but that was because you didn’t know him. Mr. Darcy . . . we love you, dude. I do at least . . .

Image result for we love you dude gif

 

But I can’t leave out OLLIE! Seriously, he is amazing. And I want him as a brother. He was sweet, kind, and smart. You know what. He’s basically Wes. . . a Jerk at first, but once you know HIM he’s awesome. And Loyal to his best friend.

I loved Ollie too.

Image result for Let me love you gif

 

There are so many more amazing characters that were mentioned in this luvely novel I would take up twenty pages if I talked about them all XD

Her dad was awesome, her family was awesome.

My favorite part of it all is something that I can’t mention for spoiler reasons XD I did also LOVE that you never knew what was coming. There are a lot of books that are predictable, this . . . was not predictable.

All in all, this book won my heart. I think I can officially say that M.C.Frank is one of my favorite authors and that I wouldn’t be able to live without her NOS series or Lose Me. I adored everything about her novels.

 

Thank you for writing amazing books. ❤

Review-

“There’s only one way I can start this fire, and she’s the match” best LINE. MY heart died when he said it. Because . . . come one.

I was lucky to receive e-copies of the first and second novel by the author M.C.Frank and truly am grateful for being able to read such an amazing series and I CAN NOT wait for the 3rd installment to this amazing amazing amazing series.

There will be spoilers ahead, so be careful reading! ;P

Well, where do I start?

Once again, I adored EVERYTHING about this novel.

I was so happy to start book 1 and after I finished I wrote the review IMMEDIATELY because I wanted to share NO ORDINARY STAR to everyone.

This review is late only because I’ve been extremely busy but I loved book 2 just as much, if not more than book 1. There was more “action” and I mean that with multiple reasons that I won’t explain.

How do I even write a review without spoilers? I feel like this book requires spoilers to even continue. The Third installment of the No Ordinary Star series comes out November 25th, 2017. I suggest reading these books before then so you can read it once it comes out *wink wink*

I do want to add that the covers are GORGEOUS, especially to b3, I might just love it more because of Felix and Astra. . . but either way 11/10 stars to all the covers.

I do hope that this will not be the LAST book from this series, I really enjoy Felix and Astra’s bantering!

Felix without Astra

Image result for you love her gif

In No Plain Rebel part two of the NOS series, the match girl disappears, however she does not disappear from the tin soldiers head. Which I am happy about. I was really sad at that point when Astra just “disappeared” I wish she didn’t and they just lived happily ever after in their ice shack with Ursa and the tiny fishes and the underground giant bunker with a library and a GAME ROOM! I mean, come one, It’s like a hidden heaven for me. I would never leave. They wouldn’t know where to find me cause underground is hidden. . . and nobody wants to be apart of the real world. Stay hidden people! MY BABIES ARE SAFE UNDERGROUND WITH THEIR BOXED FOODS AND ALL THE BOOKS AND OTHER ENTERTAINMENT!

This review mostly involves me rambling, I just want to make it clear the I wholeheartedly love and enjoy this book. Number one favorite series in 2017, I can’t imagine what I would’ve done without reading it. I genuinely adore each and every sentence, character, cover, title, EVERYTHING. I know I say I love a lot of books, but seriously… this is a book everyone should be reading.

 

I was excited to see karim again, he was pretty cool. Kinda after I found out what he did I kind of hated him…but then I got over it because he’s basically a brainwashed robot who does exactly what he’s told. I just hope that everyone ‘wakes up’ and sees the world as it was and how it should be with actually FEELING LOVE AND EMOTIONS.

 

lastly, the cliffhangers are cruel. They make you happy, sad, emotionally unstable where for ten minutes you stare at a wall wondering what to do with your life and if Felix and Astra are going to live happily ever after in the little cabin where it’s safe and the world can’t hurt them. Where family ties are there but can’t hurt you! I swear, nothing bad better happen to them *CRIES* I love them. And just want them to be happy.

The song I chose to go with No Plain Rebel:

Let Her Go by Passenger.

I hope you all enjoyed this crazy review XD
