Standalone Sunday: Stardust

Standalone Sunday is a feature created here where each Sunday you feature a standalone book (not part of a series) that you loved or would recommend!

This week I am highlighting Stardust by Neil Gaiman!


Paraphrased from Goodreads:

Young Tristran Thorn will do anything to win the cold heart of beautiful Victoria—even fetch her the star they watch fall from the night sky. But to do so, he must enter the unexplored lands on the other side of the ancient wall that gives their tiny village its name. Beyond that old stone wall, Tristran learns, lies Faerie—where nothing, not even a fallen star, is what he imagined.


4/5 stars

I love Neil Gaiman’s writing. It’s just so lovely and poetic, and he has a way of describing things that I love. His writing is overly flowery or anything either, but it’s still beautiful. I also love the story in this novel. It’s super interesting. If you’ve seen the movie, they’re fairly different, but I highly recommend both. I haven’t read it in a few years, so I think I’ll reread it this summer.


Thanks for reading! xx
