Paisley wants to be more like her Live for her [...]

    ***5 Jagger-lovin' stars!***Oh. My. God! This gem of a book was justdescribable! It was so much more than I thought it could be. It consumed me. Broke me. Repaired me. And I couldn't ask for more. The story is such a beautiful and heartbreaking tale of loss, love and the ability to live for the now. Because you never know when you'll take your last breath. So don't waste the life you're given now, because it's all we have. This story captivated me from the first word. And I was sucked into Paisl [...]

    Eyes Turned Skyward was yet another let down of a re-read. This book in particular felt like it too me forever to read. Why? It was the exact same as the first one. There was no difference. The characters were the same, continuing to make the same mistakes by refusing to say what was wrong and then proceeding to say 'I love you' way too early. This book in particular focuses on Jagger who was Josh's best friend in the first book, we are however introduced to a bunch of new characters as Jagger t [...]

  • Kelli C ~ Jack Sawyer's Heart

    5 Stars Turned Skyward!This is the second book that Rebecca Yarros gutted me with! I am an true Fan! She has an amazing ability to write true, deep, soul reaching love with palpable tone and more than that, no one writes a "male character in love" better than her! This is one of those angsty, heart-wrenching, forever kinda love books that is good thru and thru. Paisley Donovan is living with a severe medical condition. She wants more than anything to just "live" carefree, take risks, to truly br [...]

    4.5 - "The best things are worth the burn." Stars.Rebecca Yarros got herself an Insta-fan with me after I finished reading Full Measures it is a book I read with my heart in my mouth and a tissue at my eyes. So you can imagine my joy at seeing that this wonderful author had another book due up for release. Eyes Turned Skyward is loosely connected to Full Measures but you don’t need to read it to understand anything from Paisley and Jagger’s story, this book is wholly their own. I would howev [...]

    "For once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skywards, for there you have been and there you will long to return." "Grayson was right. She was going to rip me apart. And I was going to let her." This book is fulllllll of amazing quotes and my book is marked all over. no regrets This is an amazing book and one of my favorites this year because this isn't just a romance book. No. This book touches your heart and it delivers different things from page one. [...]

I want more books, I want like five million of her books so I can read them all.Eyes Turned Skyward is Rebecca’s second book in the NA series.

Paisley is turning 21 soon and she has the same heart condition that killes her sister. Paisley created a [...]

    3.5 StarsI loved this book's predecessor Full Measures, hard. But, for some reason, I just didn't love this one as muchd I really can't put my finger on why. In this instance I do think it's a case of it's not you, it's me, however. I think perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for a lower steam YA when I read this, but I jumped in anyway because I had been so looking forward to it.Next time I will wait until I am in the proper mood. And I just might try re-reading this one when that proper mood com [...]

    A ver cómo explico lo que me ha pasado con este libro. Es muy entretenido y en muchos momentos el imprudente y sexy bocazas de Jagger me recordaba a Tom Cruise en Top Gun, no en apariencia (no pueden ser más diferentes) pero si en actitud. Perooooo, ¿hacía falta ser tan cursi? Me ha encantado volver a saber de Josh y Ember y conocer al misterioso Grayson, me pongo con su historia ya.

  • Fanny

    Eyes Turned Skyward es el segundo libro que leo de la autora, Rebecca Yarros, y aunque puede ser leido como independiente, el protagonista masculino aparece en otra de las historias de la autora, Full Measures.Ya lo he dicho en varias de mis reseñas, soy bastante superficial, lo primero en lo que me fijo antes de leer un libro es en su cubierta y si, se que esta mal, pero hay veces que no puedo evitarlo aunque quiera. * sonrojo *Asi que lo primero que me llamo la atencion de Eyes Turned Skyward [...]

    This book was absolutely amazing!! Normally I don't like love triangles of any kind, but surprisingly I rather liked this one. It fit into the story so well (view spoiler)[and while cheating is never good, it all felt genuine to the situation, especially given all we learn about Will (hide spoiler)].The secondary characters were as captivating and fantastic as the MCs. The only thing I had a problem with was the interactions between Jagger and Anna. (view spoiler)[I suspected that Anna was not a [...]

    “I’ve seen love burn someone to the ground, and I’ve seen it make sense of the ridiculous. I won’t settle for less than that kind of fire.”OMG, yes! Jagger and Paisley’s story is funny, sweet, sexy, full of emotion and incredibly swoony. Their romance is intense, and is blended beautifully with drama that contributes to but never overwhelms the story. It sucked me in immediately and had me madly flipping pages, and I loved every moment of it.This book follows on from Rebecca’s firs [...]

    Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.I am always a little nervous to start a book when I receive it as an ARC because I feel this sense of obligation to read it to completion even if I may not like it all that much, and then to come up with a review that does the book justice whether it is good or bad. There are times that I get lucky and I immediately get sucked in by the story and its characters; that’s when the obligation becomes an absolute pleasure. Reading Eyes Tu [...]

    I didn't like it quite as much as Josh and Ember's story but still pretty good. This felt a bit more YA to me than the last book, prob due to the lack of steam, which would have been much appreciated, it's Jagger, hello?!?!So this is your basic forbidden romance, lots of secrets, but the author as always does a great job unfolding the story. Definitely enjoyed and will continue to read more from this author.

    I adored this book, it was so beautifully written. The storyline was interesting, the characters were amazing, and the writing was great. “I love you, and it's not the kind of love that wavers. It's the scary kind that doesn't fade. I look at you, and I see not just everything I want for my life, but everything I am, because you took the emptiest, dark pits of my soul and filled them with you. You are as much part of me as my own heart, and it doesn't beat without you.”

    4.5 stars- loved it!Full review to comeESOME read!!!Paisley & Jaggar. Sigh. The writing sucked me right into the story and I couldn't say away from it. Everyone treats Paisley like she's breakable due to the heart condition she has. Her family wants her to live a bubble. As a result, Paisley doesn't feel like she's really living. Jaggar doesn't know anything about this heart condition and treats her like she is normal. Finally, Paisley feels like she is alive. Not wrapped in a bubble. Jaggar [...]

    Items ticked off: 24 “I’m headed to the gym for a few, so listen for the timer. Burn lunch and I burn you.Since I'm going to rage so hard on this one, I figured I'd start the review off with a quote from the only good thing about this book. Grayson, a secondary character. I love him. That's it. Let's move on.Let me introduce you to the typical New Adult.“You know, there’s more to a man than how he looks.

    A short review for once.This book was the perfect find after my last emotional and overwhelming read.Rebecca Yarros wrote a beautiful story with a serious topic without falling into pityful. Paisley is full of life, tiny and ill but determined not to live "a half life". She is a "southern belle", soft, well mannered and cute but with claws when necessary. She resisted her overbearing family, especially her mother and fought to make her own decision about her own heart and it was far from simple. [...]
