    Actual rating: 2.5 stars Oh, where do I begin with this book? Such promise! Les Misérables meets The Lunar Chronicles! Did I read the former? No! Do I plan to? Definitely not. (There?s a musical for that, right?) But did I read the latter? You bet I did and I loved it! So what co...

    The full review + more can be found at The Book Bratz I must admit, the first time I read this book I actually DNFed it about half way through because I just wasn?t that interested in it. I?m also not so familiar was Les Miserables so I ended up DNFing and never looked back. Fa...

    Les Mis in Space? HECK YES - Sky Without Stars is an incredible and brilliant science-fiction retelling of Les Misérables. While long, it dives deep into the characters? psyche and morals and gives hope despite the circumstances. And oh boy, I am ready for the revolution. F...

    As a huge, huge Les Misérables fan, this book was such a relief compared to the other retellings I've read. Sky Without Stars takes the plot of Les Mis and hurls it into space. Literally. Weirdly enough, the drastic changes in setting, plot, and character Sky Without Stars made...

    Sky Without Stars is everything you ever wanted in a space drama (and/or Les Mis retelling) AND MORE. I can?t believe how quickly this book went by and how much I was begging for book 2 at the end (Jess and Jo - are you listening? Feel free to download it directly in my brain. Thx). ...

    I dragged my feet so hard through this one. I put it off, put it off, and then after finally picking it up, it just seemed to last forever. It is long, clocking in at close to six hundred pages, but wow. Finishing this feels like winning an award. I requested SKY WITHOUT STARS mostl...

    I had preordered this book as soon as I saw the cover and read it was a ya sci fi book. This book is being called Les Mis meets Lunar Chronicles?! I think that?s what I read. Anyhoo, I don?t care too much for Les Mis and I love the Lunar Chronicles, but fortunately this book wa...

    So I watched the musical film version of Les Misérables when it came out but I don't even think I finished it and I certainly didn't remember anything about the storyline (except that there was a prisoner 24601) so reading this didn't feel like a retelling to me! That being said, ...
