Wishes Under a Starlit Sky by Lucy Knott* | Book Review

I love nothing more than cosying up with a good book, and during the festive season it only gets better; Christmas lights, a mince pie or two, and a festive read make for a perfect cosy afternoon.

Wishes Under a Starlit Sky is a wonderfully heartwarming tale, with a refreshing twist. The story follows Harper, a script writer for a Hallmark-esq film company, as she picks herself back up again after realising her perfect life is not so perfect after all. With her parents and her best pal Madi by her side, Harper realises that like the scripts she writes for a living, she too can rewrite her life story. A story of heartbreak, friendship, and romance; Wishes Under a Starlit Sky is a festive novel to warm your soul.

Something I really enjoyed about this read is that there was no knight in shining armour to come and save the damsel in distress at Christmas. Instead, Harper finds herself whilst spending the festive season with her parents in the snowy Colorado mountains. I loved this refreshing twist, as so often these kinds of festive stories, be it book or film, can be solely based around magically finding love just days before Christmas. I love that Knott went for a completely different approach, and whilst love and romance do feature, it is Harper feeling content with herself that forms that main crux of the book.

If you're looking for a Christmassy read, Wishes Under a Starlit Sky is the perfect accompaniment to a cosy evening.

Will you be picking up this festive read?

Thank you to NetGalley for sending me an eARC in exchange for this honest review.
