Maggie and the Mercury Retrograde (Love and Star Stuff #1) by Anya Monroe

Maggie and the Mercury Retrograde (A Love and Star Stuff Story: Book 1) - Anya Monroe



My life is spinning out of control faster than I can say sorry for all the things I’ve done since this whole planetary shift began.

Like apologize for the fact I made out with my soon-to-be stepbrother. And his stepbrother. And that I’m crushing on the one guy I swore I’d never be into…while keeping it all from my BFF.

Mom says I think the world revolves around me, but the truth is, I’m just trying to survive the worst week of my life.

The universe is legit out to get me. It started when my gaming nemesis deleted my AsteroMine galaxy and it’s only gone downhill from there.

It isn’t my fault. I swear.



My thoughts:


This book was one of the hardest book for me to review in a long time.  I really loved the idea and concept of the book but I hated the main character.

She was one of the most selfish, self-centered and annoying characters I read in LONG LONG time. Many times I wanted to smack the living hell out of her for being such a  rude little brat who makes nothing but excuses for herself for her behavior.

I think  what made it worse for me was that she knew it and acknowledged it but did nothing about it until the end where she pretty much gets what she wants so , really nothing changed.

I really was looking for a book with a great female character who loves geeking out and gaming. Being a major gamer myself and actually havening met my husband in an online game that would have been great.

But really, she had other issues than her video games and took it to a whole new level. We get a whiny self-centered brat that only thinks of herself and hurt others in the process.

Okay, let’s not think of Maggie for a minute and get to the other aspects of the book. I really did like all the other characters, they were real and very likeable and made it for a better read and balance Maggie out.

The story was also pretty entertaining and I couldn’t wait to see what happens next to her. It was well written and kept me going.

Really , I did like the book and idea but I really hated Maggie and she is pretty much the entire book so even though I liked the book and other characters I cannot rate it over 2 ½ -3 stars because of Maggie.

But the thing about people and books is that everyone got different taste and Im sure many people will like or even love Maggie for what she is.

Unfortunately that was not me this time. Sorry
