I‘m a hopeless romantic, and this story was adorable! I fell in love with the MCs. Yes, it‘s instalove, but it‘s a little bit more! This is a love letter to the universe, to science. I enjoy Nicola Yoon‘s unique style. It‘s easy to read, but still packed with emotion and she doesn‘t shy away from controversial topics. Yoon‘s ability to weave these complex ideas into her stories is so well-done and relatable. I‘m going to watch the movie now! 🥰

AileenRR Love this one a lot 💖 5mo

I think I got this confused with a different Yoon book. I didn't realize until I started it that it was insta love, which I am not a fan of. I disliked Daniel. It starts with him basically stalking her. I think we are making some strides in YA romance to make it less toxic but this isn't part of that progress. I did enjoy the comparison of immigrant families,and really liked how the side characters were written

kaysworld1 I have to admit the film is better than the book this time round. 6mo
ChaoticMissAdventures @kaysworld1 oh! Good to know, I am a sucker for rom coms and YA romance movies, I just never seem to enjoy them in book form which is bizarre but I really need to stop trying and just auto go to the movie 😂 6mo

Can the universe magically make you fall in love with a stranger in one day? Well Nicola Yoon who wrote “The Sun Is Also A Star” has proven it. Natasha and Daniel, two complete strangers with their personal struggles bump into each other in New York. As the book goes further on, Daniel and Natasha decided to spend the day together. A poet boy and a science girl take the risk and see what the universe holds them.

neelyqnemecek Shortly, the two discover feelings for each other. However, they both understand it won‘t work since Natasha doesn‘t follow along the lines of Daniel‘s family Asian standards. Natasha kept her departure hidden towards Daniel until the moment broke, and resulted into the two leaving each other alone for good. Natasha and Daniel couldn‘t stop thinking about each other so, they both decide to run back to their love. After they reconnect, Natasha… 6mo
neelyqnemecek tells Daniel she might not be leaving anymore due to her lawyers hopeful words…. Will Natasha leave? Will Daniel make her stay? Will the universe be their saving grace so their love can expand. How could‘ve thought bumping into a stranger led to true love. Nicola Yoon uses first pov in about every chapter. I appreciate it because it gives the reader a sense of true, real emotion. Not any fictional emotion, real human emotions we all go through. 6mo
neelyqnemecek If you like ROMANCE AND SLOW BURN READ THIS IM BEGGING YOU. 6mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Neely! Another fabulous book! 6/6 6mo

Do you believe you can fall in love with a person under 24 hours? Natasha has only a day left in New York before she is departed with her family back to Jamaica. As she tries her best to prevent her depart, Natasha is met with a man named Daniel. Sparks fly between the two strangers. However, with the clock flying by, will time tear these two apart? Did Natasha and Daniel meet over fate or lust? A theme noted in this book is time.

neelyqnemecek Natasha wishes she could have more time in the city she grew up in but does she care for more time with Daniel? Natasha bravely takes her last 24 hours with him and sees what the universe holds them. 7mo

This book was good, but I just had a few preferences that moved it down to a so-so for me. I didn‘t connect with the “one day to fall in love” plot, just because I‘m not really a romantic 😅 The characters were one-demential to me (Daniel = poet, Tasha = scientist, Charlie = bad, etc). I did appreciate that race was discussed, and the theme of how your life intersects with other people was interesting. But overall I didn‘t walk away loving it.

It always comes in my mind that why do we like to spend so much time with books, after reading these books for so long I understood that book takes us to the world where everything is like poetry. Where there is love, there are promises, there are dreams, there is someone, we meet, there is pain and if heart breaks then in an artistic way. Books are always a way of living the world we want to live.

How strange it is that sometimes you do not believe in some thing at all and then the very next moment something happens that you start believing the same thing to be true.

I always had this thought in my mind, but never got the words, thankfully, I read this today. This quote made it easier for me to settle my thoughts in words.

This just broke me, and filled me up, and I don't even know what to say. I've been struggling to get my brain to focus enough to read and have been picking this up and putting it down for months, but it always stayed with me. Now I can't believe it took me so long to finish.

CuriousG @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I'm still having all the feels about this one and don't know quite what I think, so can't even begin to express myself coherently about it. I can't even say if I love or hate how it ends...maybe both at the same time? My feelings are complicated. 1y

I've been in a YA kinda mood lately to distract myself and escape. This cute, quick read hit the spot. I don't usually care for love at first sight stories so I'm surprised I enjoyed it as much as I did. Loved that the interracial romance of the author and her husband was reflected. Felt compelled to watch the movie right after and was not disappointed 🥰

magyklyXdelish I‘ve been wanting to read this one for a while and the movie looks great ♥️ glad you enjoyed it 🤗 2y

Reggie I loved this book. Have you read her husband‘s book? It‘s so good and he talks in the back about how his parents didn‘t talk to him for 10 years because they didn‘t approve of their marriage. It‘s a great book. 2y
CaliforniaCay @magyklyXdelish I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it when you get around to reading it 🤗 2y

Two teens from vastly different backgrounds meet by chance on the day one of them is about to be deported to Jamaica. Discussions of home, identity, fate, and science ensue. Romance can be super hit or miss with me. This one was a huge hit. I loved the characters, the naration looking at the lives of side characters, and the handling of intersectionality. The discussions about destiny were fun too. #romance #FirstGenerationAmerican #Immigrant

"If a book is well written I always find it too short." - Jane Austen

Jane Austen could not have expressed this better. This is the exact sentiment I have for The Sun is Also a Star, written by Nicola Yoon.

Natasha is about to be deported to Jamaica and is frantically searching for a solution. Daniel is killing time until his Yale interview; his parents want it for him but he isn't so sure. They meet for one whirlwind day. Short chapters, alternating POVs, mostly of the two mains, with glimpses into the lives of ancillary characters (my favorite part!). The romance was the weakest part for me, but Yoon wrapped it up well. She's a great writer.

Reggie I know, especially about the guard who shows up as a flight attendant, the brother, and the lawyer and his secretary. The side character stuff in here was great. 2y
readordierachel @Reggie Yes! Loved those parts. That was the real strength of the book, I thought. All the characters had dimension. The ripple effects of each interaction. 2y

1/3/2021 I loved this book! I loved the characters. They were well developed and endearing. This book reminded me a bit of that Ethan Hawke/Uma Thurman movie where they spent 24 hours together and they just click. They are obviously meant for each other, but the circumstances of their lives interfere.

Nicola Yoon hit the ball out of the park with this one!

Natasha‘s family is about to be deported back to Jamaica, and she is on a mission to be able to let them them stay in America. Meanwhile, Daniel is supposed to be off on an interview for Yale.

They had never met before today.

What transpires in just one day is magical, beautiful and life-changing for both of them.

LOVED this book!!

Cute yet unrealistic story of insta-love between two teenagers in NYC on the girls‘ last day in the country before being deported. I liked the way it was set up and loved the little vignettes on minor characters that showed how a small interaction with a person can affect someone else‘s life in an instant.

The quote shows the two points of view from the book- believing only in what can be proven by facts, like Natasha, and believing in miracles and greater entities, like Daniel, who hopes that those wil help the two to stay together, even though Natasha is leaving the country in 24 hours, probably forever.
This great love story contained two very different types of love, and somehow I could feel connected with both, which made the reading more fun.

I‘m somewhere between pick and so-so on this. It‘s well-written and I finished it in one day because I didn‘t want to stop reading...but the plot is so crazily unrealistic. I think my appreciation of recognizing coincidences and luck when it comes to random events helped me enjoy it. If you think they‘re silly, you probably won‘t like this book.

Timely read for the parts about people struggling with cultural diversity and family acceptance.

I liked the way the “chapters” are set up. The writing is fantastic. The story is both believable and completely unbelievable all at the same time. I love the idea of a chance meeting changing your life. The characters were mostly likable and relatable.
It was fun and heartbreaking and hopeful. It was a good read. 👍🏼
And now I can watch the movie which has one of my favorite young actresses Yara Shahidi she is also an awesome person in general.
