    One thought on “The Sky Is Everywhere”

    1. 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 yourse [...]

    2. 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 more words than necessary in any given context. She loves describing scenes, characters and especially feelings, making THE SKY IS EVERYWHERE so very lyrical.Normally [...]

    3. 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 [...]

    4. 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)

    5. Jandy Nelson has a way with telling stories. They all come out more 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'r [...]

    6. This is more 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 [...]

    7. I fell in love with this book. Lennie, also called John Lennon by her friend/boyfriend and family, is grieving for her sister Bailey who died a sudden death. They live/lived with their Gram and Uncle Big. I really loved Gram and Uncle Big, they are some crazy cool characters let me tell you. Through-out the book, Lennie writes notes, poems, thoughts on any piece of paper and lets them go, buries them, tapes them to things, throws them away in different places. Maybe someone will read them. I lov [...]

    8. 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 [...]

    9. Yesterday, searching for something "light" to read, I picked up The Sky Is Everywhere. Funny how I needed to relax and ended up not being able to put it down until I finished the last page, at 2am.Lennie Walker is a teenage clarinetist whose beloved sister, Bailey, suddenly dies of a heart failure. This is the story of her journey through grief and loss, through teenage hormones and love, through family and friendship, in the quest to eventually find her true self and survive her sister's death. [...]

    10. I have never cried over a book before. Never. This was one of the best books I've ever read, more than five stars. It was incredible, heartbreaking, so amazingly weird. Read it everyone, this book is a gift from god. A true blessing. Love.I love joe. Such a beautiful boy. So different, so weird. I love the way he looks at her on her first day back in school, I love his name, I love that he's from Paris. I love Toby. So sweet and also, beautiful, he does not measure up to joe though, oh joe, I th [...]

    11. One of the funniest, most beautiful and most inspiring stories I’ve ever read about coping with grief and falling in love, about discovering oneself, strengthening the bond of friendship and sisterhood, and realizing who your genuine family is. I now clearly understand why so many of my friends have fallen in love with this book. I undeniably have as I have gone through all the symptoms of falling madly in love with a book.♣ Inability to put the book down.♣ Grinning like a buffoon and snor [...]

    12. 4 stars “The sky is everywhere, it begins at your feet.”The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson. YA book #2 in 2016. Jandy Nelson has this special writing style. It’s kind of odd (in the best way) and beautifully poetic. Her characters are a little out there and her stories are like nothing I’ve ever read before. The Sky is Everywhere is a powerful story of a young woman dealing with grief the best way she knows how. “grief is a housewhere the chairshave forgotten how to hold usthe mirro [...]

    13. Favourite Quote: 'I look into his sorrowless eyes and a door in my heart blows open. And when we kiss, I see that on the other side of that door is the sky.'This review is not going to be like normal because The Sky Is Everywhere is so STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL it hard to get the words out. So I thought I use some pictures to help express my thoughts.The Sky Is Everywhere made my heart ache. The above picture pretty much sums up Lennie's life and also the way it made me feel while reading it. My emot [...]

    14. I'm so glad this is over for so many reasons. I'm also really confused and disappointed. This was such a let-down, especially after reading I'll give You the Sun, which was an immensely rich and beautiful book. I don't understand how those two books can be so different, how one can be so impressive and the other one just weak. Anyway, I'm glad I read I'll give You the Sun first, otherwise I would have never picked it up, as this was the biggest disappointment. Here's why:- I couldn't connect wit [...]

    15. I know everyone seems to love this author, but I just couldn't get into the story. The main character irritated me, there wasn't much of a plot, and everything felt a bit disconnected from reality. There were a few emotional moments or ideas, but otherwise I didn't care about very much. The book itself wasn't bad just not anything I was able to enjoy.

    16. *Lowered my rating to a 3 just because I hated the ending so much.I loved this so much for the first half but then I became excessively irritated with Lennie and I just couldn't handle it. Video review soon!

    17. This book was seriously so wonderful. It deals with grief in a way that was so spot on and beautiful. Jandy Nelson has this superhuman ability to articulate really hard to explain emotions completely perfectly and its just the best.

    18. Truthfully this really isn't even a review. IT's more of a list of questions and comments. SO if you actually like the book. I recommend turning away. Cause this is sort of a hate review.HATE/STRONGLY DISLIKE1) Screwed up love triangle.2) Screwed up characters3) Screwed up plot4) I know that the character was grieving. But really? 5) Really?6) SettingACTUALLY LIKE1) Writing. It was really good and beautiful2) Dead sisterOKAY1) Concept (author maybe pulled it off)See that was my hate list. Any di [...]

    19. Sometimes you must lose everything to find yourself.Jandy Nelson’s debut novel The Sky is Everywhere is an absolute must read for YA readers. I breezed through this book in one sitting, and I’m still going over in my heart and in my mind all the emotions this book made me feel about the complexities of grief and loss.Surprisingly enough, there were moments this book had me laughing out loud… literally guffawing and I’m not one prone to bursting out in hysterics, but Lennie’s analogies [...]

    20. TBR Reduce Challenge #1- 2011: ArleneI'm so so so sorry Arlene, but I'm in 50% and I still don't like the book. I really tried.I don't sympathize with Lennie, I don't get her Toby thing, I don't feel her loss or her pain. It's like watching a movie without sound: you see what's happening, but you don't really get into it because something important is missing.I wanted to like this so much because so many of my friends loved this.

    21. This was breathtakingly beautiful and heartrendingly tragic read! I had (wrongfully) anticipated this to be a cute Summer read full of angsty teen romance and not much else.The story follows Lennie Walker as she attempts to cope with teenage life and its many multiplying predicaments following the death of her big sister, Bailey.I immediately felt an affinity and empathy with Lennie as, just two pages in, she professed her love for Wuthering Heights; my all-time favourite book! My love for this [...]

    22. tissue count: 7this book was so freakin fantastic, one of my new favorites. like, up-at-1:30-AM-crying-because-it's-so-good favorite

    23. Actual Rating : 4.5 StarsThis book was an adorable and loving short read. Even though I think I laughed more times than I was supposed to.

    24. *3.5/5 stars.After I read I'll Give You The Sun last year and it easily became my favorite book of 2014, I obviously had high expectations for Jandy Nelson’s first book. And while this book met most of my expectations, it certainly didn’t exceed them.Let me explain: Basically, I just didn't like and couldn't sympathize with the main character Lennie. There are your typical immature and puberty stricken protagonists and then there’s Lennie. She definitely took it too far. Some decisions she [...]

    25. Okay, so about half way through this book I felt like it was going to be a 2 star read for me. I had major issues with the main charter, Lennie, and how she dealt with a lot of things. Now I know people do crazy things in the face of grief, but her actions were hard to understand given that she hurt a lot of people in the process. Also, there was EXTREME instalove in this that was not believable for me. Getting on to what I did enjoy:Jandy Nelson is a fantastic writer, and she makes you feel for [...]

    26. Reread 04/08 - 05/08 2015Still as amazing and heartbreaking. I think I might've enjoyed it even more than the first time. 4.5 Stars!Wow, in spite of my almost rough start with The Sky is Everywhere, I ended up loving it! So emotional and beautiful. All her knowledge is gone now.Everything she's ever learned, or heard, or saw. Her particular way of looking at Hamlet or daisies or thinking about love, all her private intricate thoughts, her inconsequential secret musings - they're gone too. I hear [...]

    27. This book is, quite simply, stunning. Magical, hilarious, heart breaking, passionate, realriously. It has captivated me and left me a slobbering, stuttering cheeseball in its wake.I have so much I want to say about it, but at the same time I want to keep all my thoughts to myself and say only that this might be the best book I have ever reador very high up the list anyway.Within two pages, I had a huge grin on my face. Within ten pages I had probably laughed about seven times. Within twenty page [...]
