Review: Eyes Turned Skyward by Rebecca Yarros

Check out my review of Full Measures (Flight & Glory #1) I absolutely loved Rebecca Yarros’ debut novel, Full Measures. I actually didn’t know that Eyes Turned Skyward focused on Josh’s best friend Jagger until I was in the thick of it. But that made it all the better. Eyes Turned Skyward was a more emotionally dramatic book as compared to Full Measures. It didn’t quite tickle my fancy as much as Full Measures, but it was still engaging. There was more emotional turmoil in this novel, with Paisley, the main character, hiding a medical secret that killed her older sister and counting down the days of her life left to live. On the other hand, you had Jagger, who came with a ton of emotional baggage from his family. It was an interesting read that kept me engaged, nonetheless.

We would be good at studying together.’” The plot really interested me. I enjoy reading about characters who are into unique sports, and Josh was a hockey player…and another unique situation of December being an army brat. “‘I love you,’ the whisper broke from me. ‘I miss you, and I don’t know what to do without you,’ I cried. I dragged the frost-bitten air through my lungs. ‘But don’t you worry about them, not Grams, or Mom, April, or Gus. I will take care of them, I promise.’” This novel follows December Howard as she tries to live again […]
