Reviews Eight Days on Planet Earth

  • Sarah
    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)This was a YA contemporary story, about a boy who discovered a girl in a field who claimed to be an alien.Matty was a good person, and it was nice the way he tried to help Priya. It was also nice that as he got to know her better, he started to believe her more, even when her story lacked credibility.The storyline in this was about Matty discovering a gorgeo...

    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Reading the blurb, I thought the book was going to be science fiction, given how Matty meets an alien. But regardless of who or what Priya is, this really was more of a contemporary, mainly delving into Matty's life, particularly his family and how he and his mom feel about his dad leaving them the day the book starts. Priya was more a side story for a lot of it, her curiosity a...

    I received a review copy of Eight Days on Planet Earth from YA Bound Book Tours through Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review :DStorytime:I remember signing up for this blog tour back in August? September? I can't remember, lol. The book cover's really pretty and that's the reason why I signed up. Oh my goodness I'm so shallow. (But I'm pretty sure non-book-cover-judgers are an extinct species.)Then a few days ago I received an email from Ed...

    Eight Days on Planet Earth is a down-to-earth yet otherworldly novel - magical, funny, and a little heartbreaking.Matty Jones has grown up knowing the field he lives next to is a little different. Matty's father claims that a spaceship landed there on the night he was born.

    Loved it! Such a great ending. A lot of surprising twists, but I felt all of the scenes were loyal to the plot. There wasn't a single thing I didn't love about it, which is rare for me. So great!

    What a wonderful book! I would have prefered to not have the talk about "smoking joints" because it did not progress the story at all. But other than that, it was a really good story.
