Brianna - This sounds like an interested read. I’m always curious about books that are set somewhere in space, whether it’s the moon or another planet.

Alexa S. - Honestly, it’s your comparison of the main character to Mulan that kind of makes me want to give Dove Arising a shot! I don’t often read sci-fi, mind you, but I like it every now and again. Will have to look this one up the next time I’m at the library 🙂

Emma @ Miss Print - I admit I was kind of hoping this would be a standalone but I’m excited to hear it was a solid series starter. It’s coming up in my TBR pile very soon.

Lea @ YA Book Queen - That’s a shame that the author didn’t dive too far into the character’s emotions, but it still sounds like an intriguing book to check out. I’ll have to see if my library gets this one!

Nice review!

Alexa S. - My Heart and Other Black Holes was such a pleasant surprise! It was sad, true, but it was also hopeful. I really liked seeing how Aysel (and Roman) dealt with their circumstances, and it kept me reading till the very end!

Kim - It sounds so interesting, but on the other hand, I hate books that are too cheesy. Ugh, do I read this or not?

Meg - Sounds like a very powerful read. It’s new to me, but definitely on my radar now!

Brianna - I think this book is flying under the radar a bit, but it’s an important, necessary read.

Asheley (@BookwormAsheley) - Great review, Estelle. I hadn’t read anything about this book before, including the synopsis, so this is new information for me! I think I want to read this one, though. I love these issue books. Thanks!
