Laura @ the Booksmartie - Great Review!!! And thanks so much for sharing it – I don’t think I’d ever have taken a second glance on this book if it wasn’t for your Review. Now I realized, though, that it does Sound pretty amazing! Especially since I’ve been looking for something more unique lately – I guess I’ll have to check this one out some time!

VeganYANerds - I have never heard of this but you had me at YA + 1930s! It sounds like a really great read and so well written, too!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I’ve had this for a little while and haven’t picked it up yet. I am excited to read it, I love Hollywood stories and historical fiction so I think this should be right up my alley. Great review!

Alexa Y. - I’m very excited to read STARSTRUCK soon! I think the idea of writing a book set in Hollywood in the 1930s is already enough to draw me in. What makes it more exciting is the promise of romance, and these three main characters who sound decidedly different and all really interesting.

Andrea @Cozy Up With A Good Read - I love that this takes place in Old Hollywood, that alone peaks my interest. But the fact that you can call this literary is amazing. It’s not often YA books are called literary so I’m definitely intrigued. Thanks for the review!

Tara - I definitely want to read this one after our chat yesterday. I can’t call many YA books “literary” either so I’m super intrigued by that.

Bookworm1858 - This book sounds right up my alley-I love Old Hollywood films and find the setting rife with possibility.
