I'm going to come right out with it and let you guys know that this book was just not for me. I was originally sucked in by the cute cover and the idea of a YA mystery book meets Night at the Museum but for me it just didn't work. I'll explain my reasons below but I also believe that there are peopl...

Rating: 2 Stars/DNFWhere to begin with Starry Nights? From the beginning itself, the narration struck me as off and as the novel progressed, I was unable to connect with the story. Unlike Whitney’s last book, When You Were Here, her latest is devoid of much emotion. I was unable to become emotionall...

Okay, I'll admit right off that magical realism is not usually for me, unless it's an element in a children's book. In YA and adult books, I usually find it too weird and trippy. Yes, I know that adults need magic too. Feel free to lecture me about this in the comments if you want.So … the magical r...

Starry Nights, Daisy Whitney's first non-contemporary book, kind of let me down. I was expecting the amazing writing, setting, and story from Daisy Whitney's previous books and I just didn't get that. I enjoyed Starry Nights but it's not something I'd ever read again.Starry Nights starts off slow ...

(This review is originally posted at My Library in the Making.)Prior to reading Starry Nights, I hadn't heard a lot about it; it's also my first Daisy Whitney book so I didn't know what to expect. But it sounded a lot like Night at the Museum, a movie I really enjoyed, so I looked forward to reading...

Read This Review & More @ Ageless Pages Reviews! I really wanted to love this novel. It has all the things that ostensibly, I should love: Paris? Paintings that come alive? Some interesting uses of mythology? A feminist twist? An author that has been garnering more and more acclaim and attention? ...

I struggled through most of it. It felt like an art history lecture instead of a plot line. I didn't fall in love with Paris or the museums like I was hoping for.**Thank you to NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**

DNF after about 50 pages.This has the potential to be a great novel about art, life, and how the two intersect in the heart of Paris (with plentiful helpings of magical realism!), but even if I showed the book to a fishing emporium and showed it exactly what would be most effective, I have a feeling...
