The Chaos of Stars by Kiersten White | Book Review #76

Isadora’s family is seriously screwed up—which comes with the territory when you’re the human daughter of the ancient Egyptian gods Isis and Osiris. Isadora is tired of living with crazy relatives who think she’s only worthy of a passing glance—so when she gets the chance to move to California with her brother, she jumps on it. But her new life comes with plenty of its own dramatic—and dangerous—complications . . . and Isadora quickly learns there’s no such thing as a clean break from family.

Here’s another book of White’s that I enjoyed! I honestly wrote no notes while reading The Chaos of Stars… That’s saying something!! I will admit, this book has a slow start.

Written in a unique way were we get the history of the story, while also reading what was going on in the present. The story’s present. I found some of the plot to be really predictable, yet still enjoyable.

The Chaos of Stars starts off in Egypt. Then for the most part, the rest of the story is in San Diego, California, USA, but then at the end of the book, we’re back in Egypt. Which is nice to be honest. Some books don’t end where they started.

There’s a lot of character growth within Isadora. At first, Isadora is really self-centered. Well, I found her to be that way anyway. The personal change within Isadora is slow. So slow that I didn’t even noticed that she had changed and then suddenly, Isadora was a nice person. She’s still mean and intimidating, but still. She softened up! Isadora is also really spunky and sarcastic to be honest. There were points where she had so much courage, so much emotion in her, that I could really read what she was seeing and feeling.


Thank you for reading!

Until next time,

    Oh, I like this! The daughter of Egyptian Gods sounds amazing — I’ve given up on stories about greek gods and their children. I rarely find anything good :/

      Hi! You should definitely give The Chaos of Stars a try! I doubted that I would like it as well, but I’m a Mythology nut. Anything Mythology related I usually read, ahah 🙂

      Sorry you rarely find anything good 😦
