I started reading How to Marry an Alien
while at work (thank you, Cloud Reader). Big mistake. It’s hard to focus on your work when all you want to do is read.
While I did have my issues with How to Marry an Alien
, I do feel as though it was a satisfying conclusion to Alex and Ace’s story.What I liked about How to Marry an Alien:
I really liked Lucy and Riley’s relationship in this book. Including a LGBT couple is amazing enough when it comes to a YA novel, but Vernon also highlighted the difficulties they face on a daily basis, managing to tie it in with Alex and Ace’s own relationship.
Monte. Seriously, Monte might be my favorite character from this series.
How Vernon leads up to Alex and Ace’s first time together. She didn’t rush into it. She built up to the moment, and it was rather sweet.What I didn’t like about How to Marry an Alien:
This is only going to include one thing because I honestly did like this installment: the ending. My only issue with the ending was that I felt it was rushed. I would have loved to see the “fight” developed a bit more as I felt as though it ended too quickly. That was honestly my only issue with this book.
I know that some readers are hesitant to read self-published books, and that is understandable, but Vernon’s My Alien Romance
series is an indie series worth taking a chance on.
