[Review] Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods

Summer of Supernovas by Darcy Woods
Rating: 3 stars

Release Date: May 10th 2016

Goodreads Synopsis:
As the daughter of an expert astrologer, Wilamena Carlisle knows that truth lies within the stars. So when she discovers a planetary alignment that won’t repeat for a decade, she’s forced to tackle her greatest astrological fear: The Fifth House—relationships and love. But Wil must decide whether to trust her heart or her chart when she falls for a sensitive guitar player whose zodiac sign points to cosmic disaster.
If Wil’s fate is truly written in the stars, then this summer is about to go supernova. . . .

Wilamena Carlisle has only a few weeks to find her one shot at love, according to her astrological chart. Her mother, famed astrologer, taught her that the stars never lie. But would she fall for someone outside of chart?

Conceptually, this sounds adorable. Falling for someone unexpected? Cute. Unfortunately, I didn't really like this as much as I wanted to.

Love triangles, usually not the biggest fan of them, and this one was predictable (i.e. pretty obvious to see who 'Mena' was going to end up with). So the twist wasn't necessarily a surprise. 

The main character, Wilamena, wasn't my favorite to read, either. She was so strongly stuck on following her Fifth House that chaos ensued (and it was occasionally grating to read). I felt as though everything would have been solved had she just been more honest in the beginning.

The supporting cast - Irina and Grant's band friends, was more fun to read, and I wish they were explored more!

Other than that, it's a cutesy romance of a girl who tries to figure out who her heart belongs to in a set amount of time. Would have been interesting if she actually did run out of time (there's a twist for you).
