When the synopsis went up on Goodreads, my thoughts went something like this:
Kiersten White's Writing + Egyptian Gods + Screwed Up Family Dynamics = Nothing But Pure Awesome-ness.
And when HarperTeen revealed the cover, I saw stars(no pun intended). Excited doesn't quite cover how I felt about The Chaos of Stars.
I may or may not have camped in front of my home when I was told that the book was on the way to me.
When I first started reading reviews of The Chaos of Stars I wondered why a lot of readers either considered it a 'meh' read or DNF-ed it. The reason became clearer once I actually started reading it.
The Chaos of Stars was sure as hell not what I expected. The blurb promises a mythological read(or maybe I interpreted it that way?). But it came across as a Magical Realism read with slight mythological elements. For me, this was not such a bad thing in fact this very fact made The Chaos of Stars a surprising and refreshing read.
