New to Me – For Darkness Shows the Stars by Diana Peterfreund

Posted May 31, 2019 by Andi in Books, New to Me / 1 Comment

In 2018 I had the idea to have readers and friends read my favorite books from years past. I had 20+ amazing people sign up and read some of my all-time favorite books. They took the time out of their busy lives and reading schedules and read books I love and shared what they thought on my blog. It was a lot of fun and I got to see some new takes on old favorites. It actually was a fun experience. If you are interested in the reviews HERE.

This year I decided to give back in a way and asked everyone that signed up to tell me their favorite book (that I have not read) because in 2019 it is time to do NEW TO ME.


Like I mentioned a couple of months ago, I knew going into this feature there may be books that weren’t for me. It was a probably I crossed when I DNFd Daughter of Smoke and Bone and it was a probably I crossed once again with For Darkness Shows the Stars. I’m completely bummed out that I couldn’t do it. I tried but I knew early on it wasn’t for me and I just didn’t think it was fair to the book or myself to push on. I feel terrible, but it was for the best and I don’t regret it.

But just because it wasn’t for me it doesn’t mean it wouldn’t be for you. Check out these reviews with high ratings:
