Review : Unwanted Stars

Unwanted Stars by Melissa Brown

Goodreads : Click
RELEASE DATE: February 3rd
It’s funny how the tiniest of things can change your life… an invitation, a simple kiss goodnight, a matchbook…
Auden Kelly is in need of a change.
She’s trading in her nine-to-five sales job for the adventure of a lifetime: a one year contract with a European tour company.
For one full year, Auden will get paid to see the world. What could be better? Her brother gives her a journal, instructing her to document all of her adventures as she travels from country to country. And that’s exactly what she does.
When a mysterious stranger enters her life, however, everything changes: her expectations, her priorities and her view of the world. And nothing for Auden will ever be the same.
Note: Although these books are part of a series, they do not need to be read in order

My Thoughts:

"It's funny how the tiniest of things can change your life: an invitation, a simple kiss goodnight, a matchbook..." 
Auden Kelly is a young women who is looking forward to her new job with a touring company. Little did she know taking up this job and what follows after will change her life
"A funny thing happens when your lie gets turned upside down: you stop giving a shit. When things can't get any worse then they already are, what on earth is there to lose?"

There is so much to love about this book. I loved the characters. I thought Auden was like her family says, a bit over dramatic. Sometime I couldn't help but roll my eyes wanted to telling her to get over herself. I mean whats going on in her life might be light changing but there is no need to get so out there. I loved Campbell he was so loving, caring, understanding and supportive. He was there for Auden when she needed him most even when she would push him away. I loved her best friend and couldn't place where she seems so familiar and I totally forgotten that I had read the previous book to this Picturing Perfect. Normally I love when my book has more then one point of view this book was still good without it. I loved the overall story. At times it felt like it dragged a bit but that ok but there was so much to make up for it.

Highly Recommend! 4.5 of 5 stars!

Picturing Perfect 

(Book Three)

Hadley Foster has been through a lot in her twenty-two years: the death of her beloved father, her mother’s descent into mental illness, and the loss of her soulmate, Jason Kelly, from whom she walked away years ago.

Despite all this, Hadley has remained hopeful and optimistic about life. She has been with upstanding investment banker Tucker for six years, and the future looks bright—until a trip to Europe with her best friend brings a series of events no one could have foreseen. Suddenly the brilliant future she has envisioned for herself seems to shatter before her eyes. She is faced with a stark choice: move on again, or pick up the pieces.

Back home, nerdy but handsome Jason Kelly is now a successful writer who could have anything—and anyone—he wants. But deep down, he still misses his beloved “Haddie” and dreams of winning her back.

When destiny leads their paths to cross once more, Hadley and Jason must confront not only their painful past, but what the future may hold for them both.

I have always been fascinated with books----ever since I was a little girl sitting in front of my record player, following along with my huge 12x12 storybooks.

I love books---everything about them. I love reading them, being surrounded by them in bookstores and libraries, and most recently, writing some of my own.
