Book Review: Breaking Nova (Nova #1) by Jessica Sorensen

Breaking Nova (Nova, #1)Breaking Nova by Jessica Sorensen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I never write reviews for books, but this book was a bit life changing. Going into it I never thought that drugs would have such a huge role in the overall novel. I mean that was absolutely crazy.



Sweet, kind Nova. She goes through terrible loss in her life. How she is still standing is quite crazy because she's lost so much emotionally that most people wouldn't be able to live life every day.


Beautiful, conflicted Quinton. He made a mistake. He lost those closest to him. So now he punishes himself because he can't see how wonderful he is. He believes he deserves to dead, when he should fight for the life he still has.

When these two meet, worlds will collide, drugs will be prevalent, and their lives will follow a path they both never thought possible.


I'm giving it 4 STARS because of how amazing Jessica Sorensen can write about death, drugs, and forgiveness all in one book. Tears were shed but Nova's struggle couldn't be experienced without them.

But there are some things about the book that just hurt me.
Number 1, there seemed to be a lot more grammatical and spelling errors.
Number 2, as much as I loved Quinton and his struggles, he is such a different character than all of Jessica Sorensen's other novels that I was a bit disappointed. (view spoiler)
Number 3, there were times where Nova really aggravated me. She thinks all about how she needs to help Quinton, but every time she is given the chance, she doesn't do anything about. (view spoiler)


I thought this was a stand alone for some odd reason but I'm now craving the next book.
