    1. GAHHHHH This book is all sorts of adorable My smiling, heart eyes complete with waterworks say so If you could only see how bad I m struggling right now in trying to restrain myself from squealing and gushing about everything I adored about this novel, if I could go on full nerdy mode and dissect and quote almost everything from the book, I would but I really don t want to give anything away about the story because for once, the blurb is smart enough to preserve the mystery and the plot surprise [...]

    3. I m a sucker for cute alien love stories, so I snagged this off of NetGalley.First off, this isn t an alien love story See how the boy and girl are holding hands on the cover Well, it s of a friendship thing, than a love thing There is a love story in this, just not an alien human one I was a tad disappointed, but that s not the book s fault I wasn t promised alien lovebut I was hoping for it.Anyway, this was still a pretty good story, and I managed to fly through it in an afternoon The gist of [...]

Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Karen McQuestion, Publishing, and NetGalley A shape less something flew out of the craft, latched onto his nose, and wiggled upward until it covered his eyes The sensation was stronger than a breeze, almost like a splash of water to the face, but not exactly like that either He stepped back, blinked, and shook his head trying to get the thing off him, but it was stuck, covering his eyes and making his visi [...]


    5. MY BLOG Melissa Martin s Reading ListI thought this book was a sweet little story Emma is in love with her boyfriend Lucas, but Lucas now has cancer and is dying One night there is a crash outside Lucas family farm No one really pays too much of attention as it s not a big crash, it just sounded like a thud to them Actually it was a little bitty pod that escaped when the big ship was destroyed because you know the government likes to shoot shit down and worry about any consequences, but I digres [...]

    15. Full ReviewThis book started out pretty slow, we didn t see any action actually start to happen until about 50% of the way through the book Then, the pace continues to increase right up to the end, feeling a bit rushed But apart from the obvious pacing issues, the storyline was cute and fun The first half the book revolves around Lucas s cancer and sudden recovery During this time, Emma, Lucas s girlfriend, and Eric, Lucas s brother, start to realize that he seems off, and almost appears to be a [...]

    22. Originally posted on Heart Full Of BooksAfter seeing that this book is part of the contemporary alien genre, I was excited I love reading genres I m not very familiar with it means I can enjoy the book on a different level, without having a lot to compare it to From A Distant Star was definitely a great book, and I would recommend it to anyone who loves the genre, or is interested in a slightly strange road trip story PlotSo, the basic plot for most alien books is an alien comes to Earth and the [...]

    28. I received this book, in an exchange for an honest review from Net Galley I have very conflicting feelings about this book from the beginning up until the end I found the whole scenario of an alien latching on or imposing in someone s body both a concept of freakiness and total awesomeness, I have not read many Sci Fi novels but I did thoroughly enjoy this book I wanted to rate this book higher but I found a couple of things annoying me about this book It was kind of hard to stay with the story [...]

    30. Note I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed this book from start to end It was a light read and had some really fun elements In spite of being a Sci Fi, it was on the side of Romance fiction other than a stranded alien I loved the characterization and felt a connection with the lead character, Emma, and even Scout to some extent I loved the plot line and though it felt a little off at a few places, it managed to pull me inside [...]
