The Chaos of Stars

The Chaos of Stars - Kiersten White The Chaos of Stars has brought me out of my mediocre reading spree. While I adored the Paranormalcy trilogy, I wasn't sure how I would feel about The Chaos of Stars. It's a very different story from Paranormalcy but I'm happy to say that I enjoyed it just as much!What do you get when you combine Egyptian mythology, a kick ass heroine, one of the most perfect guys in YA, and Kiersten White's sense of humor? The answer: perfection. Seriously. The Chaos of Stars surprised me in the best way possible. I don't think there is a single thing about it that I didn't love.First off, Egyptian mythology is something you don't normally see in YA. Greek mythology is the go-to mythology base for YA novels (there is some Greek mythology in The Chaos of Stars) and while I love Greek mythology, you can only do so much with it. Egyptian mythology has always intrigued me and while I knew all of the myths included in The Chaos of Stars, I was pleased with how they were portrayed. Isadora was the human daughter of Isis and Osiris and her family consisted of Set, Horus, Hathor, Anubis, and Nephthys. While they were your traditional gods, Kiersten White showed them in a unique way. All the Egyptian mythology was educational but very pertinent to the story.My second favorite thing about The Chaos of Stars was Kiersten White's sense of humor. The Paranormalcy trilogy always made me laugh and I wasn't sure if I could expect the same from The Chaos of Stars. While this one wasn't quite as humorous there were still quite a few moments when I couldn't help but laugh. Isadora was a very blunt girl who always said what was on her mind and she had a very sharp sense of humor. I really got her sense of humor and she was just really funny, even when she wasn't trying to be. Same with her friend, Tyler.The romance might actually tie for my second favorite thing about The Chaos of Stars. Ry and Isadora had this instant attraction that neither of them could really explain. Readers can really see the chemistry between the two of them. The banter between the two of them was great. Also, Ry is probably one of the most perfect guys. Maybe a little too perfect, but hey, I'm not complaining. Together, he and Isadora, were just fabulous.Overall, The Chaos of Stars deserves a read. I'll stop rambling and let you guys go out and get copies.
