    5/25/18 Title change from Firebird ---> Last of Her Name I like the change. The cover is simple but nice. Hopefully, it's shiny lol --- It just occurred to me that Empress of a Thousand Skies was also like Anastasia in space lol. But hey I liked that book enough, so this rea...

    Ehhh.. I tried to like this book since it is a retelling of one of my favorite stories, Anastasia, sadly it didn't deliver for me the story is about a girl named Stacia who discovers that she is a lost princess and she is the only key to the center of the universe and what will happe...

    This review can also be found on my blog. If you know me at all, you?d know that I?m completely obsessed with Anastasia. The animated movie was?and still is?my favorite animated movie of all time (Tangled is right next to it!), the musical is the closest one to my heart. I?...

    I'd have expected better from an Anastasia retelling with Cinderella undertones, but sadly it wasn't to be. The premise of recasting the legend of the survival of Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaievna from the execution squad as a space opera is attractive, and would've gained points...

    Whew! I can't believe this crazy galactic roller-coaster of a book is finally FINISHED! If I had to describe the process of writing this book in one word it would be: "FUN." I really had such fun with this one, letting my imagination run wild through the stars. It certainly challeng...

    I have been a fan of Jessica for years. I adore her and her books have been amazing to me. I knew I must read Last of Her Name as soon as I possibly could. I have waited so long for it, and I am so thrilled that I can say the wait was worth it. Because this book was all kinds of amazin...

    Read more of my reviews at Cornerfolds.com! Last of Her Name is a YA science fiction retelling of Anastasia and is so far up my alley that I HAD to get my hands on it! Luckily I did and I dived in as soon as I possibly could. This was my first ever Anastasia retelling, although ther...

    Last of Her Name might have resonated more with me if it were a series. As a standalone, there was a lot of pack into this book and as a result some important details were left out. I felt indifferent to the characters and romance and wanted more from the story overall. I liked the str...

    Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: Dreamy Addictions Jessica Khoury's debut novel The forbidden Wish was one of my favorite reads but her latest stand-alone YA sci-fi novel ended up as a disappointment for me. Last Of Her name felt very much different from her debut novel. It was a...

    Y'all. You guys. I have to shout this from the rooftops. I. LOVE. RETELLINGS. IN. SPACE. LAST OF HER NAME is based on the story of the Romanovs and the mystery surrounding Princess Anastasia, whose body wasn't found for many years after the rest of her family, and, for a while ...

    Man, y'all. This book made me SO MAD. Now, books tend to elicit anger in two ways. One: through the fault of bad writing and/or problematic messages, or two: the characters are put through such an ordeal of injustice and torture that you just want to reach your hand in there and str...

    I had this book from the library probably almost two months before I had a chance to read it (I had the option of renewing it many times; the overdue fines would have been outrageous). I was not emotionally prepared for the story. Ever since the weather turned a bit warmer, I have ...

    It was SO hard for me to get into this book . I did not understand the world at all and was confused be so many things that I ended up having to put the book down, and honestly I was almost not going to pick it back up. I am so glad I did though because I ended up really loving what I...

    Imust start off by saying I don't read much science fiction, it's by far my favorite genre. This feels familiar like an old forgotten friend, very much in the tone of the Star Wars era, with a bloody massacre very reminiscent of the murder of the Royal Russian family, sory tho no droid...
