The Blazing Star is one of those books that remind you that 1) Egyptian mythology is dope, 2) the focus on female friendships should be a requirement for every book, 3) the sisterly bond is everything and 4) my crush on Rami Malek started with him as a cute Pharaoh. The last point may not be relevant to this review. Just maybe.
I didn’t mean for one of my very few first reviews to be trashing a book so much… And yet here we are! Anna Bank’s Nemesis was part of FairyLoot’s November book and my biggest book disappointment in a very long while.
With Fangirl, her second novel published in 2013, Rainbow Rowell shoved a mirror in front of me with a little smile and a ‘Look, it’s you.’ This book was a life-changer to me, and I’m weighting my words.
