    (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Amazon Children's Publishing and NetGalley.)Oh dear me, this book was so boring it reminded me of ‘Earth Girl’.Skylar had issues. She seemed to have a degree of OCD, with odd compulsions, and coping strategies similar to that of a person with autism. Nothing against people with these conditions, but Skylar kind of annoyed me at points, and she was al...

    Okay, so, this book... It had a new twist in the way over "powers" and one that I found very intriguing! I'm giving this a solid 4 stars. There were parts where the main girl, Skylar, was just too much to handle and I felt eye roll after eye roll at her ridiculous comments and thoughts. At the end, I was extremely happy with the outcome (which I had figured was going to happen, but if it didn't, this would have gone down a half star, minimum). I ...

    4.5 Stars'Earth & Sky' is the fantastic first book in what promises to be a phenomenal science fiction trilogy. The story follows our main character Skylar, or Sky, as she goes about her normal teenage life as a senior and dealing with incredibly powerful panic attacks that happen when something around her feels "wrong." Nothing bad has ever come after these attacks, so Sky has found a way to cope on her own and appear normal in front of everyone...

    I've been really digging this YA science fiction phase that I've been going through. I'm usually not a fan of the genre, but my interest was piqued by reading the blurb of Earth & Sky. Plus, I had heard some amazing things about Megan Crewe and I figured I should probably read something by her. Earth & Sky wasn't the perfect book, but it's one that I thoroughly enjoyed reading and a series that definitely has the potential to turn amazing.It's ra...

    Earth & Sky….. ich muss zugeben, mich hat dieses Buch positiv überrascht. Im Laufe der Zeit habe ich nun schon so einige Jugendbücher mit Aliens hier auf der Erde gelesen (Alienated, Gravity usw.) und sie alle waren zwar gut, aber doch nicht überragend und vielen anderen, haben die Bücher gar nicht gefallen. Ich weiß auch woran das lag und konnte es auch nachvollziehen. Da ich jetzt schon so viele mittelmäßige “Alienbücher” hatte, g...

    ** A big thanks to Netgalley, the author and the publishers for allowing me to read and review this book.** "Skyler," he mumbles. "You're not just a tool."This is gonna be a quick one because I need to get into the second book. Yep, it was that good. I really really enjoyed it especially the relationship between Skylar and Win. Yes he was an ass at first but as we get further into the story its obvious he cares for her. So much in fact that he wo...

    DNF @ 30%So boring and confusing, seriously, what in the world is going on in this book?? PLUS I had a dejá vu moment when Skylar goes with Win (the boy) into his hotel room, like, right after meeting him---sure, it was a necessity, they were hiding from the bad guys, but still. Something similar happens in Scintillate, another 2k14 book I did not enjoy at all.On a side note, I have a pet peeve about heroes and heroines with names somehow conn...

    An exciting start to a fantastic new sci-fi trilogy by Megan Crewe. Highly recommended for fans of the video game "Mass Effect" and people who love globetrotting adventure stories.

    Earth & Sky is a member of a genre that I don’t often read: science fiction. I’ve never really been interested in things to do with aliens, other worlds, and time travelling but Megan Crewe did a wonderful job with Earth & Sky. I was intrigued from the start and couldn’t stop reading once I started.One of the draws of Earth & Sky is that it’s not super scientific or futuristic. It’s set in a world like ours full of people like us. Skyla...

    This was a fun book about time travel. Time travel can get confusing and messy and just plain weird, but I think Megan Crewe handled it well. Her time travel rules made sense (as much as time travel can) and were pretty consistent. This book is lots of fun if you like history (I do!). They travel to several different times in the past.I really liked the main character, Skylar. She's a bit OCD, but it just made her more real to me. She's not perfe...

    Time travel! Aliens! I didn't expect Megan Crewe's Earth & Sky to be such a fun and adventurous read. The plot description is purposely vague and I hadn't read any reviews previously, so I really had no idea what I was getting myself into when I began reading it. Time traveling can be so complex and go right over my head, but I think Megan Crewe explains it in a way that isn't confusing and you'll be able to understand.What if Earth and its inhab...

    Jumping Into History With SkylarOk, I'm about to get anal, ya know R.T. A 1995 Mazda MX-5 Miata Convertible has only TWO seats not four as in the story, a single person can wedge behind the two people but not two fifteen year old boys! Otherwise it was an edge of the seat time travel adventure. With whisper sync the audio really adds to it, I am glad the is a book 2 to read next, thanks to Netgally.

    This was released only 8 months after Crewe's previous book, and it shows. There are a lot of great ideas here, and with a couple re-writes to focus the scattered themes and make Sky a more interesting protagonist, I could easily picture this being on par with Fallen World. Megan Crewe is normally one of my favorite authors, but this is by far the weakest book she's ever written (at least, of what I've read so far). As the book is, it isn't bad -...

    I received this egalley from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, I was in no way compensated for this review.I was intrigued by Megan Crewe's Earth & Sky from the getgo! I mean look at that cover! It's simple, yet the colors are so stunning! I love it! Especially with the moon so close to the cityscape, as you might know, I'm a sucker for a moon on the cover--have yet to figure out why either, lol!This read was an intere...

    An interesting YA read about a looming presence that saw Earth as an experiment, Earth and Sky was an enjoyable read. It had a couple of issues but, overall, it was a good read.First, let me start with what I liked about the book.I liked Skylar's character. She was perceptive and braver than she gave herself credit for. Overall, I liked her. Win was also great. He was charming and I liked how he learned to respect humans as fully capable people a...

    Thank you to netgalley.com for my free e-ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for my honest review. I was not otherwise compensated.Content: Earth & Sky by Megan Crewe is a YA sci-fi/fantasy/time travel book with a vague overtone of dystopia and a little bit history thrown in the mix just for fun. Whew. I’m not going to recap the entire book here, you can read the blurb/summary for that; however, I will summarize: the basic plot is that the mai...

    I’ve read quite a bit of time-traveling books recently. Is this the new in thing in YA? I don’t know but it sure feels like it.Skylar, she has a pretty name, doesn’t she? Although my friend in high school had the same name and was a he, not a she. I like how she’s so skeptical of Win at first and his abilities. Her method of dealing with her anxiety/panic attacks is constant and I thought a good way of showing this in the narrative. I rea...

    Thank you to NetGalley for providing a copy of an eARC in exchange for an honest review.Time travel, aliens, sci-fi, oh my! 3 of my favorite genres together in one book. The concept was interesting and I was looking forward to reading this one!Skylar is a teen who gets powerful feelings of "wrongness" and starts OCDing by doing math in her head until the feelings pass. She gets stalked by another teen, Win, who eventually whisks her away in his t...

    I received this book as part of a Goodreads First-Reads giveaway.While not my typical genre of books (I'm more of a crime-solving, mystery & true crime reader most days) I quite enjoyed reading Earth & Sky. The story captured my attention from the moment I picked up the book to start reading. (I probably read about 1/3 of the book almost immediately). Ms Crewe's writing and ability to depict character emotions and scenes is amazing. I was on the ...

    Another book that I was looking forward to reading. I did see a quick glimmer of hope with this book. Yet I can't remember what it was now. I barely got into this book before I put it down. The characters are uninteresting and the story is boring as well. I am sure it might get better but I had no reason to stick it out to see if this is true. Again I already stated the obvious reasons why I did not like this book. Which I will say it again for t...

    Aliens and time travel?Um okay.I liked the story I enjoyed it. I like the characters I enjoyed reading about them.The whole concept though is a little "out there" I mean they mixed aliens and time travel together.Yet in moving forward I liked the story enough that I'm so going to read the second book.Don't know where it's heading but let's just hope that it doesn't start off with love drama.
