Book Review: To The Stars by Molly McAdams

25005167To the Stars (Thatch #2)
by Molly McAdams (Goodreads Author)

Summary from Goodreads:

In the second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Molly McAdams’ Thatch series, Knox Alexander must convince his long-time love Harlow Evans that they’re meant to be together.

He promised to wait for her.
She told him he was wasting his time.
Not waiting for him ended up being the biggest mistake of her life.

When they were younger, Knox Alexander swore to Harlow Evans that he would wait for her to turn eighteen so they could be together. But that was three and a half years away, and Harlow couldn’t ask him to give up all the fun and thrills of going away to college for her. As the years passed, Knox remained a constant in her life—whether she liked it or not—but when her eighteenth birthday came around, Harlow’s heart belonged to someone else.

Every day for the last four years, Harlow has been haunted by that fateful choice. And though he may appear unaffected by what happened in their past, Knox has always tried to fill the void Harlow left. But when he comes stumbling back into her life and refuses to leave, will Harlow finally let him into her heart…?

TSR My Review

The last Molly McAdams book that I read was probably the harshest review I’ve ever written. I felt really bad about it, but that book just wasn’t for me.  However, we can’t like ALL books and there is a difference between not liking one book and not liking an author altogether. There are a few authors that I know are not for me, and I’ve come to that conclusion after reading and disliking several of their books. I wanted to give Molly McAdams another try and this was the book I selected. Well, let me tell you that To The Stars was simply PHENOMENAL! I am so glad that I gave her another chance because she completely redeemed herself. I devoured page after page and just couldn’t stop myself. The story of Knox and Harlow is beautiful, tragic, and filled with angst, but this only makes love’s ultimate triumph even sweeter.

I haven’t read the first book so this book can be read as a standalone (although now that I read and loved To The Stars, I’m pretty sure I will be going back to read the first in the series). I loved the characters, the plot, the writing, everything. I have absolutely nothing but praise for this book. What a fantastic read! I highly recommend this book to fans of YA and NA.  5 huge stars!

  1. I’m so happy to see your 5 star review for this one, Cristina! I have this one for review so I’ll be reading it very soon. I decided that I wanted to read the first book in advance (even though I know it’s not necessary) and I just finished it last night. I haven’t even written my review yet but I don’t know how complimentary it’s going to be. The writing is okay (very simple but sometimes that’s okay) but the plot – just So Much Drama! I was like, what could possibly be next? lol I don’t mean to dissuade you from reading it at all because maybe it’s just me but I wasn’t quite sure what to make of all that was going on. But like I said, I love seeing that you gave To The Stars 5 stars and it makes me excited to jump into that one and get Knox’s story! 🙂
