    Each time someone dies, a library burns. First of all, let me just say that reading this as an ebook is a crime against literature and should be punished as such The edition I m holding resembles a diary with its worn cover, wonderful illustrations, little handwritten notes, blue ink and a rubber band holding it all together It is, without a shadow of a doubt, the prettiest book I ve ever seen If you can t get your hands on a paper edition, wait until you do or you ll be robbing yourself of the most wonderful experience Second, I think it s safe to say that this book isn t for everyone The mixed reviews have already proven as much Many of you would probably be severely irritated by this dreamlike experience Besides, a lot of people find Lennie to be quite unlikeable and I must admit that I can see why She makes so many horrible mistakes She is lost, insecure, her actions can often be interpreted as selfish and she is very skilful in telling lies If that s all someone can see in her, there s no reason to even try to like her But I saw a different layer of her character, one that is confused, scared and alone and it didn t take long for her to win me over I put aside for a moment the fact that I ve turned into a total strumpet harlot trollop wench jezebel tart harridan chippy nymphet because I ve just realized something incredible This is it what all the hoopla is about, what Wuthering Heights is about it all boils down to this feeling rushing through me in this moment with Joe as our mouths refuse to part Who knew all this time I was one kiss away from being Cathy and Juliet and Elizabeth Bennet and Lady Chatterley Writing a plot summary or trying to explain The Sky Is Everywhere in any way would probably do harm than good If I tried to write about Lennie s story, about her sister Bailey who died of arrhythmia while rehearsing for the role of Juliet, I d be running the risk of making this book sound so ordinary The Sky Is Everywhere is nothing short of extraordinary in every way that counts Joe must I go there I m trying to be an adult here, a serious, calm, respectable adult But Joe can take that away in a second and turn me into a useless, gushing teenager with his joeliciousness, his musicality, his gentleness, his humor, his boldness and his Frenchness and those damn eyelashes Bat Bat Bat swoon The secondary characters are just as amazing the hippie Gram who grows flowers famous for their aphrodisiac powers, the five times married five times divorced uncle no woman can resist and the sweet and charming brothers Fontaine They all had a huge part in making this story so special, so unlike any other story I ve ever read.And Jandy Nelson, where on earth did you come from Your writing is like this huge energy ball that found its place in my stomach and just exploded over and over and over again, making me cry, laugh or jump with excitement, turning me into whatever you wanted me to be at that particular moment You had a remote control for my moods and you weren t afraid to use it and for that you have my eternal love and respect Yes, I had a Maggie sized hole in my heart and yes, I thought you might fill it for a second, but instead I ended up with a Maggie sized hole and a Jandy sized hole right next to it You are nobody s replacement, lady You are far too good for that.I will shut up now and try to preserve some semblance of dignity Oh, but I forgot my favorite quote This is our story to tell. He says it in his Ten Commandments way and it hits me that way profoundly You d think for all the reading I do, I would have thought about this before, but I haven t I ve never once thought about the interpretative, the storytelling aspect of life, of my life I always felt like I was in a story, yes, but not like I was the author of it, or like I had any say in its telling whatsoever.You can tell your story any way you damn well please.It s your solo.

    There s something about Jandy Nelson s writing I can name dozens of incredible writers off the top of my head, but Jandy Nelson is not only talented she is original She uses original figures of style and moves you in ways you didn t expect.Granted, you must be patient when you read her books, because she is the type to use words than necessary in any given context She loves describing scenes, characters and especially feelings, making THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE so very lyrical.Normally, I don t welcome love triangles in my reads Often, they are quite annoying and lead to cheating, which I despise But Lennie went through so much she lost her sister to whom she gave all her love and so I understood how empty and confused that made her She s fragile and has yet to understand why this has happened to someone so good She needs someone to help her see through this fog.Because the author spends so much time describing elements, I felt well acquainted with the characters surprisingly fast The people surrounding Lennie have unique personalities and a role to play in the story Lennie s Gram is especially interesting, what with Lennie s mother s disappearance a long time ago and Gram s weird behaviour when it comes to discussing it I m used to admiring writing styles and feeling enthralled when I read a book, but I m not that used to actually, literally feeling something in my stomach when I read a romantic scene That very rarely happens Luckily, it s not a requirement for me to love a book, but when it does happen, I am always impressed It s a sign I will never forget a book THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE, you are unforgettable.Blog Youtube Twitter Instagram Google Bloglovin

    Book 22 100 for 20152.5 5This book really didn t do anything for me I was expecting great things because of the incredible hype surrounding the book, but I was bored throughout I felt like the romance between Joe and Lennie was WAY too sudden He just randomly shows up at her house one day and then begins to invite himself into the house every morning with croissants Also, they kiss and then a few days later they are in love and her ongoing crisis between picking Toby or Joe made me want to slap her silly I didn t like her writing style for the most part A few times a great sentence would stand out to me, but I felt like she did telling than showing She would always say how a character gave Lennie an irritated look , but didn t describe what that looked like She also used weird phrases such as WTF asaurus , which just It makes me so uncomfortable when authors try to relate to their teen readers by adding weird lingo example Being Audrey Hepburn by Mitchell Kriegman.Finally, none of the characters stood out to me I kind of hated Lennie and I have no idea why She seemed pretentious to me with her poetry and being a book snob and all of her deep thoughts, but also childish She was basically a big mess which I know is a large part of the book, her being a mess, but she always compared herself to others and infuriatingly jumped to huge conclusions.I also didn t cry which is very unusual for me I sobbed in the movie Bridesmaids if that tells you anything Everyone was saying how this book wrecked them, but I had dry eyes throughout it all.On the positive side, though, this book was a page turner and I really did want to see how it all finished I flew through this book in only a couple of hours and I was satisfied with the ending I m sorry for the big rant, but I was really disappointed with this book and I was hoping that it would be able to get me out of my reading slump.

    After reading I ll Give You The Sun , I was ready to read anything by Jandy Nelson Once again the main character was an artist and going through grief That part I loved I didn t care as much for the romance love triangle but if someone usually likes YA Contemporary romance you should absolutely give this book a shot Overall I think it was impossible for this book to be as good as her other one but I overall enjoyed it 3.5

    Jandy Nelson has a way with telling stories They all come out like works of art than books Reading them is an experience of it s own, like dancing, but instead of your hands being on hips, they re on the cover of a book When I die,tell me a funky storyjust like this oneI can t help but love Found on a message board, GoodReads, online The way The Sky Is Everywhere connects death with becoming yourself and falling in love is beautiful All of the characters are crazy They feel like they re all telling their own stories, until they all become parallel and then crash together And as always, I fell for the words Ever been in love I don t holler, Yes, right now, with you, stupid, like I suddenly want to, but say, No, I ve never been anything

    when you read a story centred around the loss of someone, its expected to be an emotional and somewhat melancholy experience but the best books that deal with loss also make you wish for hope and feel uplifted and thats exactly what this story did.i will always praise jandy nelsons writing there is something so lyrical and poetic about it that shapes even the most mundane words into thoughts of beauty and i think that was an asset to this story she perfectly described the difficult nature of grief and the often confusing moments people go through in it i thought this book explored how lennie handled her grief very realistically and i couldnt help but feel invested in her and the other characters this was a very touching story one i know i could read at any time in my life, regardless of what i am feeling, and come out the end of it a much better person 4 stars

    The Sky Is Everywhere is undoubtedly a beautifully written book Its emotional prose and the story itself will resonate with many female readers You have grief here, the main character s journey to live with it, her inability to sort out her feeling for two guys her dead sister s fiancee, who understands and shares her feelings perfectly, and a new boy in town, whose sheer presence makes her forget her pain A generous amount of passion will entice many too But for me it never quite worked.It s not anything major, just small irritants here and there The characters are a little too sophisticated for their age too articulate, too obsessed with reading Wuthering Heights, playing La Vie En Rose and being hip, emo and literate the romance is a little too intense with proclamations of undying love and plans of deflowering 3 days into the relationship the feelings that border on hysterical with the main character throwing herself into grief and lust with an unprecedented gusto and finally, the story itself is just so excessively sensual, too wrapped up in lust and obsession for my taste I don t know, I guess it simply didn t feel completely real to me in the end It s one of those YA books that make you think that the writer doesn t quite remember what being a teenager is like, how teens talk and think, and resorts to entering the genre because the story is not deep enough to be marketed as adult fiction I wouldn t discourage anyone from reading this novel however, it is written well, but at the same time I can t recommend it either.

    This is of a ramble then a review, so bare with me.After reading this book, my emotions were kinda everywhere at once.There are a lot of different ways that people grieve when they loss someone they love.Lennie unconsciously and purposely explores her sexuality with not one but two guys in her life Joe is the new boy in town, talented musician and all around swoon worthy while Toby just happens to be her sister boyfriend There is a very fine line to right and wrong that Lennie is treading on and at first I was pretty tossed up about it On one hand, to turn to someone for comfort, to feel mad hot kisses and hands exploring, getting lost in the sensation of lust and need, to feel alive, it s actually pretty realistic and normal way to deal with lost I just didn t expect to find this method in a YA book with a character who hasn t really began to experience with it to begin with But then I thought, why not Toby and Len have experience the same lost and they understand what the other is going through Is it right Is it wrong There is no real answer and quite frankly it doesn t matter, people do messed up things to make it better Anything to not be able to feel pain or connecting in a way that keeps the memory alive in some twisted up way, but there it is, making this situation bittersweet then it already is.Then there s Joe, someone animated and funny and sweet and sexy and says things that can melt any heart He s already had to mend one broken heart and has been betrayed all over again I had to go with Joe here, at least for awhile, I wasn t sure I could forgive Len at first either but then I realize that it wasn t ever about deep emotion with Toby, it was just to fill a void that they desperately needed to fill Poor Joe just walked in at the wrong time.Len and Joe are such a sweet couple, sure, it s a bit rushed but the sap in me couldn t care less, I wanted them together Period.Overall, The Sky is Everywhere really surprised me in the best way possible I laughed, I cried, I cringed and I grinned from ear to ear and I have such a crush on Joe A touching, raw and emotional read that pulls at your heart strings and defines how people who have lost a loved one can still smile and laugh and love and finallylet go.An Amazing Debut
