I want to cry because this book is so good but…ughhhh.
The descriptions, emotions, and characters are everything. EVERYTHING.

I’m speechless at the amount of detail poured into To Sleep in a Sea of Stars.

Something that’s hard for me with books set in another world, is the difficulty to understand completely the way ships function, tech etc. This book describes everything so ”floraly” it is spectacular.
I wanted to join this expedition so bad 😭 JVSLFBVWERIB

But…well.. it is not clean. At all.

I didn’t realize it was an adult novel. Imagine a curse word and it is probably there. There are also sex, profanity, etc, and even though I tried to skip it, it just didn’t work….


At one point I was like, ok I can blur out the words if I get a physical copy, but nope, too many (and the other scenes 🥴)

I’m so sadddddd I wanted to love this book but I had to dnf at 35% because I just couldn’t keep reading with a clear conscience.

*sighs* Oh well, hopefully, another author ventures to write a similar book without the bad stuff.


Book blurb:

Kira Navárez dreamed of life on new worlds.

Now she’s awakened a nightmare.

During a routine survey mission on an uncolonized planet, Kira finds an alien relic. At first she’s delighted, but elation turns to terror when the ancient dust around her begins to move.

As war erupts among the stars, Kira is launched into a galaxy-spanning odyssey of discovery and transformation. First contact isn’t at all what she imagined, and events push her to the very limits of what it means to be human.

While Kira faces her own horrors, Earth and its colonies stand upon the brink of annihilation. Now, Kira might be humanity’s greatest and final hope . . .


Cleanness: ⭐️⭐️ 2/5

Characters: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

Plot: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5/5

  1. I knew it was supposed to be an * adult book bu I figured Paolini would stay close to his brand that he started to create with the Inheritance Cycle. I didn’t think it would be that bad 😬

    1. Oh yeah, it is very bad… It’s very graphic and the main plot revolves around this romantic relationship between the MC and a crew member, so it is almost impossible to evade. Plus, there are like three curse words for every paragraph 🥴 So sad.


  2. Have you read Whose Waves These Sre by Amanda Dykes? It’s an incredible book that I think you may love and it’s Christian, so it’s most definitely clean. She also has a new book coming out at the end of the month.


    1. No, I haven’t! I’m reading Set the Stars Alight right now and I’m loving it! It is my first book by Amanda Dykes but I will definitely check that one out! Thank you 💕🥰
