    "Think Throne of Glass set in space" And just like that, you lost me. Have fun guys, I'm out of here. ...

    *sobs in asian* this was EVERYTHING I expected and more. I love the cover so much, even the vague and general space nebula background behind the model. Ignite the Stars was the manifestation of everything I?ve wanted in a sci-fi novel: ? a badass Asian protagonist ? a fo...

    Characters were okay, but the writing was wayy too choppy, and I felt like a lot fo stuff didn?t make sense? + Annoying scifi cursing ? Totally shipped the romance though ? RTC! ...

    5 STARS I've been rendered speechless from this book. Because WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. So rarely do books that I hype up in my mind actually live up to the ridiculously high standards I make for them, but Ignite the Stars ignited an explosion and blew me all the way past the ...

    This is the space adventure I?ve been waiting for! Strong female characters, friendships, slow burn romance and a lots of high stakes missions. YES. Some of the plot threads took me to places I wished for more info on, but it?s only because I loved it and wanted more. ...

    4.25 This was super awesome! I admit that maybe it wasn't the most original of plots, but it was an old plot in a new setting that made it seem really fresh and interesting. And it was a fun plot, at any rate. I really liked it. And I TOTALLY get the comparisons to throne of ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Everyone in the universe knows the outlaw Ia Cocha and fears him. One thing they don't know is that Ia is actually a seventeen year old girl. In reality she is a top notch pilot and a criminal mastermind who has spen...

    Space books are difficult for me, mainly because I?m not that intelligent and so can?t really follow along with all the technical space talk, ya get me? But I?m so desperate to love that I keep trying and trying but...I just can?t. I absolutely adored The Lunar Chronicles, but ...

    3.5 stars! Even though initially I almost felt like this would be rated lower because the pacing and set-up felt a little clunky, I actually really ended up enjoying myself. It was a fun space adventure (that I could see as a film or tv series with more development)! ...

    More space sci-fi plus an Asian protagonist? SOLD! Not a fan of the cover though so might just get the Kindle edition. ...

    Full RTC! ...

    ALL THE YES. A diverse, empowering sci-fi that's at once super accessible and also full of deeper issues, Milan expertly weaving heart-pounding action scenes and swoony romance with real-world themes of imperialism and prejudice. The military-academy setting brings those perfect boardi...

    Can we please appreciate the cover first? Because not only do I really like it colour-wise, but there is a POC on the cover. All the thumbs up for that. But now, let?s get to the story. Even though I needed quite a long time to get into it, I just read 3/4 of the book in one sitting...

    Ignite the Stars is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure with strong female characters. If you can suspend disbelief to get past the idea that a 17-year-old girl has been the most wanted criminal/rebel in the universe for several years, then this book is a fun ride, with a side of social comm...

    10% in and I knew I was hooked! That doesn't happen near as often as I would like. I'll be the first to say that I am not a big sci-fi YA fan. I can probably count on one hand how many YA sci-fi books I have read and actually enjoyed it. Not my favorite genre, BUT Ignite the Stars is c...

    I needed a good ya sci-fi and Ignite the Stars gave it to me! This book is intense and I read it in one sitting. I loved that it was written from three point of views. I'm always wondering in other books what the other characters are thinking beyond what the narrator tells us and this ...

    You can also read this review on my blog! Guys! This book! ? The synopsis immediately grabbed my attention; the cover reveal (Asian model!) made me yearn for this book! So when I saw it on NetGalley, I ignored my looming (physical) TBR and requested the book! It was such a pleasa...

    Disclaimer: I received this free from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. Ia is a criminal mastermind and an unrivalled pilot. Known by the name Cocha, everyone fears her name ? she is known as a force against the Olympus Commonwealth, the imperialist nation that dest...

    I received an ARC through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. In YA, it is not uncommon to have teenage protagonists lead armies, or be the smartest, most dangerous person around by the end of the book. Ia is not one of those protagonists. She is already the most dangerous c...

    A Stellar Debut! Ia is the scourge of the All Black. The Sovereign of Dead Space. Rogue of the Fringe Planets. Blood Wolf of the Skies. And she's only seventeen. But he rampage all comes crashing to a halt when the Olympus Commonwealth's army finally catches up to her. They a...

    (I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts are my own.) I was only a few pages into Ignite the Stars when I got the sinking feeling that I knew this story. Ignite the Starsis a very average young adult science-fiction story with a l...

    4.5 stars bumped up for the massive crush I have for the mc, Ia How do I even begin describing this book? Ignite the Stars was grandiose, adventurous, and triumphant. It?s a science fiction that follows the journey of Ia Cocha, a daredevil rebel who?s escaped the clutches of the...

    3.5 stars I had a weird amount of thoughts while reading this. A review was practically begging to be written. Usually I only get so many thoughts when I am reading books I absolutely adore or books I absolutely despise. While Maura Milan's debut incited neither feelings in me, I st...

    Thoughtful, compelling, and filled with important and relevant themes. Ignite the Stars may be one of the best science-fiction space operas I have read a in long while. - Follows Ia, a criminal mastermind who is captured by her enemy, the Commonwealth, and is forced to work for the...

    DNF at 27% On paper, this book is everything I ever wanted in a YA sci-fi. Found family. LGBT rep. Diverse MC (mainly Ia, who is Asian). Political themes that tie in to the present day. That gorgeous cover. And yet. I couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough to work through t...

    I read an early version of this and I LOVED it. IA was such a kickass heroine, sarcastic and spunky, while Brinn was a very relatable character I could identify with. The chemistry between the two felt organic and sincere, and I liked that the author spent a good amount of time on thei...

    It is with no small amount of regret that I announce I have never been mistaken for a fearsome space pirate. On the other hand, that?s probably for the best. I?m not going to be sent to space army school like Ia C?cha in Ignite the Stars. The result is an intense story from Maura ...

    ALL THE YES. A diverse, empowering sci-fi that's at once super accessible and also full of deeper issues, Milan expertly weaving heart-pounding action scenes and swoony romance with real-world themes of imperialism and prejudice. The military-academy setting brings those perfect boardi...

    Ignite the Stars is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure with strong female characters. If you can suspend disbelief to get past the idea that a 17-year-old girl has been the most wanted criminal/rebel in the universe for several years, then this book is a fun ride, with a side of social comm...

    4.5 stars bumped up for the massive crush I have for the mc, Ia How do I even begin describing this book? Ignite the Stars was grandiose, adventurous, and triumphant. It?s a science fiction that follows the journey of Ia Cocha, a daredevil rebel who?s escaped the clutches of the...

    3.5 stars I had a weird amount of thoughts while reading this. A review was practically begging to be written. Usually I only get so many thoughts when I am reading books I absolutely adore or books I absolutely despise. While Maura Milan's debut incited neither feelings in me, I st...

    Characters were okay, but the writing was wayy too choppy, and I felt like a lot fo stuff didn?t make sense? + Annoying scifi cursing ? Totally shipped the romance though ? RTC! ...

    5 STARS I've been rendered speechless from this book. Because WOW. WOW. WOW. WOW. So rarely do books that I hype up in my mind actually live up to the ridiculously high standards I make for them, but Ignite the Stars ignited an explosion and blew me all the way past the ...

    This is the space adventure I?ve been waiting for! Strong female characters, friendships, slow burn romance and a lots of high stakes missions. YES. Some of the plot threads took me to places I wished for more info on, but it?s only because I loved it and wanted more. ...

    4.25 This was super awesome! I admit that maybe it wasn't the most original of plots, but it was an old plot in a new setting that made it seem really fresh and interesting. And it was a fun plot, at any rate. I really liked it. And I TOTALLY get the comparisons to throne of ...

    I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Everyone in the universe knows the outlaw Ia Cocha and fears him. One thing they don't know is that Ia is actually a seventeen year old girl. In reality she is a top notch pilot and a criminal mastermind who has spen...

    Space books are difficult for me, mainly because I?m not that intelligent and so can?t really follow along with all the technical space talk, ya get me? But I?m so desperate to love that I keep trying and trying but...I just can?t. I absolutely adored The Lunar Chronicles, but ...

    3.5 stars! Even though initially I almost felt like this would be rated lower because the pacing and set-up felt a little clunky, I actually really ended up enjoying myself. It was a fun space adventure (that I could see as a film or tv series with more development)! ...

    More space sci-fi plus an Asian protagonist? SOLD! Not a fan of the cover though so might just get the Kindle edition. ...

    Full RTC! ...

    ALL THE YES. A diverse, empowering sci-fi that's at once super accessible and also full of deeper issues, Milan expertly weaving heart-pounding action scenes and swoony romance with real-world themes of imperialism and prejudice. The military-academy setting brings those perfect boardi...

    Can we please appreciate the cover first? Because not only do I really like it colour-wise, but there is a POC on the cover. All the thumbs up for that. But now, let?s get to the story. Even though I needed quite a long time to get into it, I just read 3/4 of the book in one sitting...

    Ignite the Stars is a fast-paced sci-fi adventure with strong female characters. If you can suspend disbelief to get past the idea that a 17-year-old girl has been the most wanted criminal/rebel in the universe for several years, then this book is a fun ride, with a side of social comm...

    10% in and I knew I was hooked! That doesn't happen near as often as I would like. I'll be the first to say that I am not a big sci-fi YA fan. I can probably count on one hand how many YA sci-fi books I have read and actually enjoyed it. Not my favorite genre, BUT Ignite the Stars is c...

    I needed a good ya sci-fi and Ignite the Stars gave it to me! This book is intense and I read it in one sitting. I loved that it was written from three point of views. I'm always wondering in other books what the other characters are thinking beyond what the narrator tells us and this ...

    DNF at 27% On paper, this book is everything I ever wanted in a YA sci-fi. Found family. LGBT rep. Diverse MC (mainly Ia, who is Asian). Political themes that tie in to the present day. That gorgeous cover. And yet. I couldn't suspend my disbelief long enough to work through t...

    I read an early version of this and I LOVED it. IA was such a kickass heroine, sarcastic and spunky, while Brinn was a very relatable character I could identify with. The chemistry between the two felt organic and sincere, and I liked that the author spent a good amount of time on thei...

    It is with no small amount of regret that I announce I have never been mistaken for a fearsome space pirate. On the other hand, that?s probably for the best. I?m not going to be sent to space army school like Ia C?cha in Ignite the Stars. The result is an intense story from Maura ...
