**My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars**
*My review*

This was an awesome read. Murgia has created a world that sucked me in and made me wish that I were a part. Teagan is a great protagonist, and I really connected with her. She has such a brave heart, and is self sacrificing, she makes me want to be more like her. Garreth is a wonderful literary crush- he is funny, eccentric, and focused only on her-- what more can you ask for? 

I did feel that their relationship developed rather quickly, but there is great reason for this given in the book, but no spoilers! 

Teagan's mom was present and involved, which is a pleasant plus in the YA genre. This is a fresh take on angels, and I tore through this book and am eager for the next. I am really sad about some of the choices made and consequences of those choices but I can see how it happened, and why it needed to happen. 

I would love to hear what you think and if you have reviewed, feel free to link and I will check it out.


  1. I absolutely LOVE Angel Star! The romance is great and I, too, like the fact that her mom is present. :-) Glad you enjoyed it! I hope you enjoy Lemniscate!

  2. I haven't heard a lot about this book, but now hearing it it does sounds great. I like stories involving angels and this sounds a bit different than all the other ya books out there. Great review.
