    20 Dec 2019 I just finished my final read through and while there's no book perfectly designed for giving stars to ✨✨✨✨✨ I believe reviews are for readers not authors So I'll leave that up to all of you but I will say I adore this book and am so so so proud of it It is the magical fairy tale of my heart my love letter to everyone who yearns for and has always wished to go shopping at a magical Night Market and wants to find their place in the worlds I hope if you read it you love it tooI see someone updated this listing and MY GORGEOUS COVER IS LIVE AHHHHHHHHHH D D D I hope you love it as much as I do

    since it seems like most of the pre reviews for this are basically a support group hi my name is jessica and i too picked this book up solely because of the gorgeous cover that being said i really wish the story inside was just as stunning dont get me wrong i liked this just not as much as i wanted to and i think it stems from the fact that this story very much feels like a debut novel and there is so much room for growth and developmentthe inspiration from hindu myth is fascinating but the world building is uite confusing and assumes the reader is already familiar with desi culture and folklore which i am not there is so much potential for the characters and many opportunities for their development but they all fell flat for me and the writing is pretty basic its a very telling narrative versus a showing narrative which can be boring at timesso while there is so much great representation and inherent positives about this story im not uite sure it plays to all its strengths definitely not a bad book but i hope ST develops her style a little with her next novel↠ 35 stars

    OwlCrate's August 2020 Box My Rep Code MEL10 ❤️Fairyloot's August 2020 Box My Rep Code MEL5 ❤️Reviews you should check out Fanna's Anandi's Sara's She was nothing but the words of a story one tale weaving imperceptibly into the next She was the loom that wove the tapestry She was the tapestry that joined all things Star Daughter is a beautiful story about a girl who is half human and half star and she must go to the celestial court to try to save her father after he has fallen ill And before she knows it she is taking part in a magical competition that she must win This is also a story about art and all the different forms and how sometimes music can be healing Yet also about how much is taken from other cultures under the disguise of the word “muse” This is such a beautiful story that is ownvoices for the Indian representation and the Hindu mythology and I truly think it’s a bright and shining star wink in 2020 debutsIf you’re looking for a story with some magic some romance some identity discovery connections through our ancestors beautiful and lush settings mouthwatering food descriptions and a whole lot of love on every page I’d really recommend Star Daughter Trigger and Content Warnings abandonment lots of blood depiction violence cuts stabs captivity hospitalization of a loved one illness of a loved one panic attacks talk of kidnapping and talk of loss of a loved on in the past Blog | Instagram | Youtube | Ko fi | Spotify | Twitch Buddy read with Maëlys ❤

    This cover makes me want to activate my tbh terrible flirting skills Be humble for you are made of earth Be noble for you are made of stars—Siberian proverbEmotional book playlist filled with Hindi songs for this adventurous cute and gorgeous YA debut of stars and Hindu mythology → Spotify LINK ✨Review to come but in the meantime read the author’s heartfelt note because it fully paints what to expect of Star DaughterDear readerMy whole life I’ve yearned for magic I grew up steeped in Western fairy tales in the Mahabharata and the Ramayana in books about witches and Narnia and faeries and I’ve always nurtured lush fantasy realms in my imaginationEven so it took me until my mid twenties to wonder why the important characters in books were always white and why readers were expected to be familiar with pixies and brownies but not with apsaras or yakshas Why especially if someone did write about my desi heritage or Hindu faith it was inevitably serious and unhappy—and often wrong I wanted adventures and magic too I wanted to see brown girls having funSo I decided to write the stories I never had Star Daughter is partly my response to Neil Gaiman’s and Charles Vess’s gorgeous illustrated novel Stardust When I found it back in 2002 I fell in love The journey of a human boy to find a star who’d been knocked out of the sky even inspired me to write a short story about a half human half star girl Except as in Stardust that story called for a uest—and uests fit much better into novels soI wove Hindu mythology together with other concepts I adore like enchanted Night Markets and fey balls I explored Sheetal’s misunderstandings with her boyfriend her relationships with the women in her life and her being caught between worlds And I dreamed up so much starry brown girl magicI hope the result is just as fun to read too A court full of stars to my superhero for sending me an eARC from Edelweiss 💛

    This is honestly one of most beautiful covers I've ever seen in my entire life and even if I wasn't so stoked by the entire premise of this story you can bet your ass I'd still buy it just to frame this cover like a damn piece of art 😍

    August 09 2020 Star Daughter shines with the half star half mortal identity of a young woman a gorgeous setting among the clouds music that plays on one's heartstrings emotionally complex familial relationships inspiration from the nakshatras of Hindu mythology and lush narration through a lyrical writing Representation Indian Gujarati American MC Hindu mythology desi culture Ownvoices reader for Desi Indian Trigger warnings Critically ill father parent abandonment anxiety including a panic attack fictional slurs stabbing hostage tortured and identity crisisConsidering reading this review over on my blog A young woman is struck to live the part of her she has kept hidden as a secret for so long Sheetal the daughter of a a human dad and a star mother has always pushed down the heavenly part of her by either dying the silver hair strands or attempting to ignore the starsong that flows to and through her But when the dye and the ignorance can't keep her away from the truth of being a star's daughter from letting her sparks flow she unintentionally harms her father and the solution is among the clouds As someone caught between the two possibilities of existing—in the heavens or on the Earth—Sheetal makes decisions out of desperation and love Her flawed personality makes her realistic relatable and easy to understand She's new to the family high above this world and new to being so open so true so herself as a star Conseuently the discoveries she make the secrets that are unravelled and the ancestry she had no knowledge of are surprising and highly influence her portrayal as someone filled with uncertainty The celestial court is sparkling and the shimmer of svarglok is hypnotic The setting is one of beauty charm and magic Especially with immortals roaming around in fashionable pieces flawless skin Whether it's the hallways lined with intricate designs on the walls or a hall full of mirrors that can help you see anything or anyone on Earth the svarglok—a heavenly world in Hindu cosmology—is a place you want to roam in all day A supporting cast that shine individually and relationships that are complex From the best friend Minal who always has Sheetal's back and sprinkles humour everywhere to the love interest Dev who is a soft boy the side characters have distinct personalities you simply cannot not love The friendship is proven right at the gates of heaven and the romantic attachment is build on an already existing bloom of feelings The rest of the side characters including those who are competing against Sheetal in the high stakes celestial competition have enough to contribute and are worth remembering at the end of it all The new found familial relationships have an understandable dual effect—the pure happiness of connecting with those who share your bloodline as well as the undeniable insecurity constant uestioning of what family really is The mother daughter connection is very well explored through Sheetal's broken heart after being abandoned getting fixed again Similarly the father daughter love is excellent too—and personally my absolute favourite The Indian culture the Hindu mythology the ownvoices brilliance food music and world Right off the bat Sheetal's starsong—an astral melody that travels across the sky and through a star's heart—and Dev singing a Kishore Kumar song in a party the music is beautifully integrated in the story Along the same lines seeing words like dilruba bansuri bhajan and gandharva can impress the ownvoices readers very much The culture is perfectly depicted through food references like samosa naan bhajia aloo mattar dal and rasmalai or through literal translations like dikri bhai nani nana and chhokri—my personal favourite since this was the first time I ever saw a word my mom uses to angrily acknowledge me heart explodes with love The inspiration from Hindu mythology is also seamlessly incorporated through the essence of nakshatras and mention of deities as well as customs like pressing vermilion and a grain of raw rice on the forehead in blessing Overall a definite recommendation for those who enjoy standalone with fast paced mythology inspired fantasy plot and lush writing that makes you want to be lost in the shine of a star August 08 2020Finally finished reading Star Daughter by Shveta Thakrar and it gave me so much in terms of cultural representation and mythological inspiration that I'm filled with happiness Also Dev is that soft boy you can easily stan and Minal is ball of sunshine and Sheetal is a STAR Full review to comeAugust 01 2020 Starting this I'm here for the inspiration from Hindu mythology cheering this gorgeous beauty on the cover during the celestial competition some romantic drama and shineshimmer because half star half mortal July 17 2020 You know how much I shrieked when I got on a blog tour through which I'll be interviewing the author LIKE HELL YEAH one of my most anticipated books of this year
