    One thought on “How to Date an Alien

    1. Erika

      Really?At first I thought I was going to like it. It was fun, different; but the more I read, more seems like a satire.The point of fantasy is to be credible but when a regular teenager, even clumsy, ends up shooting with amazing aim and flying a spacecraft you actually think that someone is teasing you.The characters, on the other hand, ended up degenerating into stereotypes so exaggerated that I was hoping that at some point someone told me that all book was about to make fun about, precisely, [...]

      To see full review click here.I'm sort of alien junkie.And I don't know why because E.T. is hardly sexy. And after watching all those episodes of Ancient Aliens, I sometimes find myself not sleeping thinking some grey is going to pull a Barney and Betty Hill on me but whatever.How to Date an Alien was free on which was probably the number one factor in why I decided to read it that and it involved aliens. It's probably one of the better free books from I read, that's not saying much.To be fair [...]

      I must say that I am very happy with this book! It actually blew me away. You know that they say to never judge a book by its cover and unfortunately, I always do. But, I am glad that I had read this one!The book starts off with our heroine, Alex, sitting in an interview for Columbia University. She is trying to get a spot and the interviewer is not impressed with her extra curricular activities. She literally has none. Alex has always been the outcast at her school and focused more on her studi [...]

      I stopped this at 49% because it was one of the few books which bothered me. I didn't mind the Men in Black idea of an alien super-center in the middle of the desert. But in the first few chapters the main characters gives her Dad a thumbs up, which is evidently very rude to some aliens. Instead of keeping it funny by likening it to a middle finger or something the "Hail Hitler" motion was compared. The alien who assaults her for making the thumbs up is killed off by her upcoming alien partner. [...]

      WOW is all I can say about this book. This is the first book I have ever read about Aliens. Magan has done a great job of weaving a story together from two different perspectives.Alex lives a mundane life and wants to get into a prestigious college but she has no extracurricular activities to put on her college applications. She decides she is gong to ask her father for help because he is a Colonel in the army. So she decides she will do a summer internship with him at his job.Once she gets ther [...]

      Alien life does exist, or at least that’s what Alex discovers when she travels to Arizona to intern for the summer at Circe. Part “Men In Black,” part high school romance, “How to Date an Alien” by Magan Vernon is a quirky young adult comedy. It was an enjoyable read, but I have my pros and cons. Here’s the breakdownOS:—Ace/Alex interactions: What do you say to an alien that just saved your life, especially when you just found out alien life exists? I can tell Vernon had a lot of f [...]

      A very believable Story about a human girl and an alien boy meeting by chance. The best, it is the first book in the Young Adult Sci-Fi series "My Alien Romance" which will be three books long and is the début work of Magan Vernon.Alex just got 17 years old and has already a lifetime dream: She wants to be a journalist and for that the Columbia University is her College of choice. Unfortunately, she is not much of an extracurricular activity person and consequently severely lacking in this depa [...]

      Defy The Stars is a fun, cute and dangerous alien romance. Alex decides she needs something more on her college application. Why not ask Dad if she can intern at his base? little does she know it’s not just a base. It’s a place full of alien life. There she meets Ace, an alien who is her age. Who just so happens to harbor a secret crush. They have an almost Romeo and Juliet romance. Being with an Alien is a huge no no. But you can never tell a teenager what to do. That puts them all in a l [...]

      This is a cute and fun story. With great action and mysteriousness around every corner, dating an alien is harder than what you think.What I adored most about this story is how much it reminded me of Men in Black but with a high school setting and teens. Alex thinking she doing an military internship, she finds herself in a whole new world she did not know exist. Alex is quick to accept it with loads of questions. I too, feel that I would react the same way. Alex is smart and knows exactly what [...]

      I won this book through and I must say that it is an excellent read.Alex the MC is trying to get into Columbia University, but is lacking some extracurricular activities. She decides to take on an internship at her dads "military base Circe", which she comes to find out aliens are working with humans. She is just blown away when she arrives and even is attacked upon arriving. However, like a knight in shining armor, Ace comes to the rescue.Ace is an alien, and a Caltian at that. Which you learn [...]

      First, I must comment about how much I love the fact that the ranks of the different alien species and humans are like the same ranks of high school. I definitely think that makes this book more relateable to those of high school age, or ones that haven’t been out of high school long. Or hell, even someone like me, who has been out of high school for awhile. It shows you that it’s not just humans that act a certain way or treat people a specific way.Review originally posted at Step Into Fict [...]

      "Well, for starters, friends should tell their friends when they have a secret alien boyfriend and not lie to them about it."(Jen, to Alex, in HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN)I have heard people describe this book as "part Twilight, part Men in Black" and that is EXACTLY what it is (maybe with a teeny bit of Independence Day thrown in near the end). But don't get me wrong - HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN is not just a mashup of these other works. It's entirely its own thing - a delightful, well-paced story with memo [...]

    14. Heather

      I know, I know, who would read a book with that title? But here we are. (I did get this for free on ; there is no way I would have paid money to read this e-book.) It was quite terrible, but if I'm being completely honest, I loved it. I cringed and wanted to laugh out loud half the time, but I couldn't put it down. It is very reminiscent of Twilight, but worse, so much worse. It was entertaining though. I think this book has potential, but it needs some hard-core editing to make it a complete an [...]

    15. Jessie Harrell

      I'd never really thought of aliens as sexy and lovable before, but Ace sure changed my mind. I love how he had such deep, black eyes - it really made him seem soulful. And I also loved how Alex was like a typical high school teenager, who wears glasses and is concerned that her Italian hips are too large. She was a total kick-butt heroine and didn't back down from anything! If you can root for a human and supernatural being to make it against all odds, then you'll enjoy rooting for this human-al [...]

    16. Mallory

      An other worldly novel that is uniquely written! With a twist on the supernatural/sci fi element,and a sweet romance,as well as a fierce protagonist,this novel is complete! I adored the alien theme of the story,a breath of fresh air from the typical YA novel. The romance was sweet,although I wished it had progressed a little slower,but love at first sight is always an intriguing tale. Overall,a nice,fast pace novel in a sci fi world with romance and adventure sewn in.

    17. Emily

      This book had funny moments and I liked the whole alien/human relationship. I love Ace and Alex! I ordered it online and I was surprised to see how short it was, like, it's a small book, but other than that I loved it! It is a little similar to twilight and a little sappy; I hated how the comparison made it a bit cheesy. Overall it was great, so give this book a try :D

    18. Caroline

      This book was. meh.I didn't have a problem with the writing itself, the author is capable of stringing together words just fine, and the sentences make sense. However, the story did not.I like to indulge in fluff as much as the next girl, but I can only suspend disbelief for so long!OK, what I did like about the book:- The concept. I love the concept of this ordinary teenage girl falling in love with an alien.- The writing itself (as stated above.)Problems I had with this book:- Continuity. The [...]

    19. Anorielt

      Erster Satz: If someone told me at the beginning of that summer that I would come face-to-face with death because of a Romeo and Juliet romance, I would never have believed it. Ich habe gerade so eine Phase in der ich vor allem gerne Alien Lovestorys lese und im Zuge dessen, ist mir auch How to Date an Alien begegnet. Eigentlich schon allein vom Titel her nicht meins, aber davon ließ ich mich nicht abschrecken. Am Anfang gefiel mir das Buch auch sehr gut. Alex braucht für ihre College Bewerbun [...]

    20. Chihuahua Zero

      This book started out so promisingd then around the half-point, the number of complaints I had for the book piled up until my suspension of disbelief was shattered.The entire premise is familiar yet entertaining, although the story itself was decent. Circe, with a bunch of different aliens? A lot of possibility in there.The first nitpick I had, however, is with the whole Romeo and Juliet metaphor that starts from the first line. Seriously, I can't tell whatever the romance is supposed to be show [...]

    21. Jessica (Step Into Fiction)

      I want to thank the author, Magan Vernon, for giving us the opportunity to read and review her highly enjoyable HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN. I enjoyed reading this and I look forward to the second book, as much as the title might scare me, I know it’ll be great!First, I must comment about how much I love the fact that the ranks of the different alien species and humans are like the same ranks of high school. I definitely think that makes this book more relateable to those of high school age, or ones [...]

      See the full review at: Read My MindMy Review:The cover for HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN hints at a quirky YA science-fiction romance, but there is so much more to this novel than I originally thought. The star-crossed lovers theme is there, but science-fiction lovers that have been looking for a YA in the genre, will not be disappointed by Magan Vernon's debut. Alex Bianchi discovers the existence of aliens when she asks to intern at the Air Force Base where her father is stationed. Little did she know [...]

    24. Eden (The Prickly Reader)

      Alex Bianchi hopes that interning at her dad’s classified military base will make her college application to Columbia stand out from the rest of the crowd. What she doesn’t know, but is about to find out, is that Circe Operations Center is actually an alien operation center where human and aliens live and work together on a daily basis.At the beginning of the book Alex discovers that all sorts of different aliens live among us on Earth. There’s something of a hierarchy among the different [...]

      I was really excited to start this series. I have seen the book around a few times and was very curious. I did enjoy the first book, it was a quick and light read into an alien romance with a bit of drama.Alex wants to get into college, the only issue is that she doesn't have any extra curricular activities to put on her college applications. She believes interning at her father's government job will do just the trick. She isn't close to her dad and has no idea what he really does for living, on [...]

    26. Barb Lie

      How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon is the first book in her My Alien Romance series, which is considered Sci Fi Young Adult. When you read this book, you know right from the start that this is indeed a more youthful book, not to mention just by the title. Surprisingly this turned out to be a cute story. I liked the heroine in the book, Alex. She was not your normal teenage heroine. Alex was pretty, but she wore glasses, and she was a bit more on the plump side. But that did not matter to the h [...]

    27. Ashley Schwartau

      This book was just so. I don't want to say BAD but yeahI had a few major problems with it:1) In the book's universe, aliens and humans of been working together at this aliens operations center in the desert somewhere for a long time. We've known about aliens for YEARS and have peaceful relations with many difference species. YET despite the fact that there are dozens of species working together at the military base, the author constantly refers to ALL of them as "aliens". It's like referring to [...]

    28. Shreya

      I really enjoyed this book because it was unique and charming. The theme of the "star-crossed lovers" was played out to perfection and the romance was heart-felt. It was cute and fun with great action, mystery, and suspense. The best part of this book is the concept, and even though this is one of the rare YA alien books out there, it sure put the genre to good use. It's a pinch of sci-fi, an ounce of romance, and a quarter of humor, together making the perfect blend. The main character Alex is [...]

    29. Rachel Sh

      The concept for this book is just fantastic, isn't it?! Straight after I read the blurb I knew I just had to read it. I, for one, was definitely not going to miss out on something so unique and different. And I can tell you right now, you shouldn't either. Everyone just has to experience this book for themselves.I only recently found out that apart from being a science-fiction book, this is also a romantic comedy. Now that I think about it, I did find myself laughing when reading it! Oh yes, and [...]
