    • I have so many books to read, but part of me really wanna do re read this instead lol I never did get around to buying a physical copy, since I was they d redesign the cover, but maybe I will soon and I ll re read it then Rating 4 4.5 In fair Verona, enemies still walk the streets Two news hearts Same two families.I fell fast and hard for this book It is an absolute delight Let me start by saying I do not like Romeo and Juliet, I detest it really Perhaps it is because I read it in high school, o [...]

    • I picked up this book thinking that I d give it a try and if it wasn t very good, I didn t have to finish it But once I started, I couldn t put it down This book takes place a few weeks after the events of Romeo and Juliet Houses Montague and Capulet have bee formally ordered to make peace, but someone keeps stirring the feud between both families In a last ditch attempt to stop the fighting, Prince Escalus orders Rosaline who is a distant cousin of Juliet and the girl Romeo first fell in love w [...]

    • Still star crossed es uno de esos libros que a simple vista no llaman la atenci n Puede ser porque su portada es un poco sosa o que la sinopsis habl m s de una relaci n impuesta que de lo que en verdad abunda en esta novela.Misterio, drama, acci n y un poco de romance es lo que van a encontrar en esta novela A esto sumenle una protagonista independiente y fuerte una de mis favoritas por ahora y giros en la historia.Melinda Taub supo sacarle el jugo a Romeo Julieta y hacer de los personajes y de [...]

    • Cover Blurb Yes or No I am not a big fan of the cover at all it, in fact, almost put me off reading the book altogether It screams romance and girly read and all those things that I really don t like And while Romeo and Juliet isn t my favorite Shakespeare play, I was curious to see what a what happened afterward story would be like So I ignored the cover and gave it a try.Characters I at first didn t care about anyone As a matter of principle, I tend to not have an opinion either way about the [...]

    • Full disclosure I knew Melinda when I was about 17 and she was about 13 She was a pretty cool 13 year old, but since it s been a decade and a half since I last saw her, I feel like I can be impartial about this book.And my impartial opinion is I love this book Love it to pieces 4.75 stars, for me Still Star Crossed is the sequel to Romeo and Juliet, and tells what happened after the Capulets and the Montagues swore to the Prince that their deadly feud died with their children Slight spoiler aler [...]

    • This was a really good book The idea is really original We ve seen a lot of retellings, but this ain t a retelling, it is a sequel to a classic I really like the idea It is done really well You get a Shakespearian feel because of the language son the translation is done really good as well , but it is still an easy read, as soon as the story gets going.The start was a bit tough You need to get through that It is a lot of names and a lot of information, but the story gets clearer after the first [...]

    • Het is een goed boek maar ik vond het een beetje langdradig Het verhaal is origineel en aangenaam om te lezen, maar het duurde gewoon te lang voor er een einde aan kwam Ik heb me door sommige stukjes moeten worstelen, maar andere lazen dan weer razend snel Over het algemeen vond ik het een goed en speciaal boek, maar daar blijft het bij.

    • Objetivamente 4 o quiz s m s , por la historia, la redacci n, la investigaci n de la poca y blablabla, pero le dar 3.5 Tengo una buena raz n para ello y no s lo es que mi kokoro se rompi con ese final y, para mi, no existe nada despu s de la pagina 359 m s que una respuesta que no est escrita, pero que mi mente adicion xD Mi problema es Por qu los autores desperdician sus mejores personajes Aquellos que tiene m s complejidad sicol gica, posibilidades narrativas y tonos grises esos que enaltecen [...]

    • Me encant Fue un placer leer este libro desde la primera p gina Ya va a haber rese a muuuuy pronto en el blog, pero pod s leerlo a n sin haber le do Romeo y Julieta Amor eterno a Nora Escoms la traductora y a Melinda Taub Pd team Benvolio a morir.

    • 3 stars as much as I enjoyed going back to Verona, this wasn t a brilliant book granted, it got me locked for like 2hours once but I could predict what was going to happen so even the end or a part before that didn t surprise me but still this gave some sense of satisfaction that was pleasing enough characters were mostly flat with the exception of Rosaline she was good enough but honestly my favorite was Benvolio he was such an eye candy .I d recommend this book for a change of pace in the rout [...]

    • Qui n no conoce la historia de Romeo y Julieta , puede que no hayas le do la obra de William Shakespeare, pero sin duda sabr s un poco o mucho de lo que ocurre Pues bien, alguna vez te preguntaste que fue lo que ocurri despu s de la muerte de sus protagonistas Melinda Taub, retoma la historia y nos cuenta que fue lo que pas con las familias Montesco y Capuleto y al mismo tiempo nos introduce en un misterio que las envuelve.La trama se desarrolla apenas unos d as despu s de la tr gica muerte de R [...]

    • Once upon a time I read Romeo and Juliet for English.It was awful and boring, and I hated it with a passion I don t know why, but Romeo and Juliet just didn t clash well with me.Still Star Crossed isn t exactly like Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet definitely not a retelling, though I would read a retelling of the cheese any day over rereading the original Still Star Crossed is like an unwritten sequel the aftermath of what happens in Shakespeare s Verona after the tragic ending of Romeo and Julie [...]

    • I am an English teacher and a college graduate with an English degree you do the math I love Shakespeare Shakespearean retellings are probably one of my most favorite books to read I literally did a little jigs with a few girly yelps when I opened this package This is the story of life in Verona after Romeo and Juliet have passed away The story mainly follows Rosaline, who was once the beloved of Romeo himself However, Rosaline did not return his feelings Prince Escalus approaches the Houses of [...]

    • There s only so many times a girl can read about the importance of maidenhood for a woman s reputation in half old English half modern English half I have no idea how dialogue works so whatever before she wants to set herself on fire.

    • I m always a little skeptical when reading twists on the classics, but this is Shakespearean fan fiction at its best It starts only weeks after Romeo and Juliet ends, and deals with the immediate problem that peace is not so easily won between their families Prince Escalus solution to wed Benvolio and Rosaline makes sense, but these two are feistier than their dead counterparts, so of course things don t go as planned There are brawls, a masked assassin, history between Rosaline and the prince, [...]

    • He disfrutado mucho su lectura, hace tiempo que no me sent a tan intrigada con una historia Adem s he encontrado a un personaje que se ha robado mi coraz n.Si Romeo y Julieta no te llama la atenci n pero te animas a leer esta historia, creo que al terminarla correr s a leer el cl sico de Shakespeare Muy recomendado PD No se dejen enga ar por la portada, este libro de romance solo tiene la pizca necesaria.

    • Que la muerte de Romeo y Julieta es s lo el comienzo Still Star Crossed se lleva 4 estrellitas porque, m s all de los personajes y los giros argumentales, he disfrutado con lo adictivo que puede resultar la historia La curiosidad siempre puede m s y la autora juega bien sus cartas para mantener la tensi n hasta la ltima p gina Y porque me he emocionado de haber empezado y terminado un libro en un s lo d a adem s de haberme quitado el bloqueo lector que no sab a que ten a

    • Debo de decir que las primeras 150 pg d este libro me ponian mal, literalmente ten a que parar de leer sino lo iba abandonar pero agradezco mucho ver tenido la voluntad de seguir con el ya que me a gustado me encanto como terminaron ese triangulo del rey Escalo ,Benvolio y Rosalina , valio la pena

    • Benvolio, Benvolio Wherefore art thou, Benvolio Be still my Shakespeare loving heart Why have I been smitten with Romeo and Juliet when there is Benvolio and Rosaline This book was beautiful and it was such a fun spin on Shakespeare This is up to par with Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead Melinda took some minor characters and took their story to a whole new level Frankly, I realized it has been way too long since I ve read Romeo and Juliet and I need to add it to my TBR pile I loved all of [...]

    • Still Star Crossed has been on my TBR since the year it released, but for some reason, I never got around to reading it which is actually really weird because you don t even know how hyped up I was for Benvolio and Rosaline s hate to love romance When I heard about the tv show coming out, I again meant to pick up the book and give it a go before the pilot aired, but again, for whatever reason, I never got around to it Now, we re five episodes into the show and I am absolutely in love, despite kn [...]

    • Rating 4.5 starsI received an ARC of this book and thus am committed to posting an honest review Let me preface this review by saying that I commenced reading this book feeling wary of its purported intention of picking up where Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet left off As a lover of Shakespeare s works, I think this initial wariness may be something I had common with other readers However, whatever its faults, I am happy to say that this book succeeded in fully drawing me into its world and carin [...]

    • I wanted to love this book I think it would easily have been a 4 star read for me engaging characters, twisting plot, good use of language if not for a particular character s actions, and the development of a love triangle that, at least from one character s perspective, should not have mattered at all Here come the spoiler tags view spoiler Rosaline is betrayed by Prince Escalus, who gets her drunk, puts her in his bed once she can barely stand, and then blackmails her into agreeing to marry Be [...]

    • 4,5 stars Oh how I love this kind of stories.Romeo and Juliet have become a passion of mine specially this last few months, being so that I am terribly afraid of bad retellings But I am SO HAPPY I gave this one a chance We never get to know what happens after the Shakesperian play Of course, is implied that Montagues and Capulets, with a summer of tragedy past them, finally agreed to put an end to the deaths and start living in peace with each other But such peace is not spoken of in Shakespeare [...]

    • God, nothing in Verona was ever simple, was it This is my favorite line from this book It sums up the book perfectly, in my opinion I had always known deep down that the feud between the Montagues and the Capulets would never have been easily put down merely by the death of their children, and in fact I believed that it would have fueled it , with both families blaming each other for their children s misfortunes This story was much complex than Shakespeare had originally written Shakespeare had [...]

    • This was really good I mean, I love a good Shakespeare retelling as much as the next English major, but thisis is what happened after Romeo and Juliet Which is a really good question, if you think about it Did the feud really just end after the summer of death I read this all in one day because it was so good and engaging I never quite knew where it was going to go next.And the plot Loved it After the feud begins to pick up again, Prince Escalus forces a betrothal upon Rosaline and Benvolio, who [...]

    • ACTUAL RATING 4.5 STARS This was so beautifully written and had so many wonderful twists and turns that I did not expect I loved seeing all the surviving characters from Romeo and Juliet in a new light and the dialogue in this novel made my Shakespeare feels rise The romance was amazing and not ridiculous like Romeo and Juliet which I appreciated SO much I loved this story It was such a lovely retelling.

    • I loved loved loved this book I couldn t put it down I loved the setting, all the subtle Shakespeare references, the love, the language, and the mystery, and betrayal Wonderful If you love Romeo and Juliet, you will love Rosaline and Benvolio in this aftermath story of Romeo and Juliet Wonderful.
