Diagnosis with the same heart condition that killed her sister, everyone is constantly watching and monitoring her waiting for something to happen. Paisley doesn’t even remember what it is like to truly live life anymore. In effort to take back control she begins working on her bucket list. That is how she meets Jagger.

A lovely 4.5 STARS for a BEAUTIFUL story



Rebecca Yarros has a beautiful and effortless writing style and once again she sucked me into her story with a strong, independent and feisty heroine and a sexy, heart swoony hero.

Eyes Turned Skyward is about trust, living in the moment, taking risks and being true to yourself.

Paisley Donovan was diagnosed with the same potential life threatening illness as her wild, carefree and uninhibited sister, Peyton. Paisley wants to be more like her... Live for h

Oh. My. God! This gem of a book was just...indescribable! It was so much more than I thought it could be. It consumed me. Broke me. Repaired me. And I couldn't ask for more. The story is such a beautiful and heartbreaking tale of loss, love and the ability to live for the now. Because you never know when you'll take your last breath. So don't waste the life you're given now, because it's all we have. This story captivated me from the first word. And I was sucked into

Paisley Donovan aka Lee is a 20 yr. old college student living in Enterprise, AL. with her best friend Morgan. She works at the library, and lives a cautious, reserved, boring life. This is mainly because her sister Peyton dies from a heart condition that Paisley also has. Everyone in her life treats her like breakable glass including her boyfriend Will. Paisley just wants to live her life to the fullest, and misses feeling normal.

Eyes Turned Skyward was yet another let down of a re-read. This book in particular felt like it too me forever to read. Why? It was the exact same as the first one. There was no difference. The characters were the same, continuing to make the same mistakes by refusing to say what was wrong and then proceeding to say 'I love you' way too early.

This book in particular focuses on Jagger who was Josh's best friend in the first book, we are however introduced to a bunch of new characters as Jagger t

This is the second book that Rebecca Yarros gutted me with! I am an true Fan! She has an amazing ability to write true, deep, soul reaching love with palpable tone and more than that, no one writes a "male character in love" better than her!

This is one of those angsty, heart-wrenching, forever kinda love books that is good thru and thru. Paisley Donovan is living with a severe medical condition. She wants more than anything to just "live" carefree, take risks, to truly br

Rebecca Yarros got herself an Insta-fan with me after I finished reading Full Measures it is a book I read with my heart in my mouth and a tissue at my eyes. So you can imagine my joy at seeing that this wonderful author had another book due up for release. Eyes Turned Skyward is loosely connected to Full Measures but you don’t need to read it to understand anything from Paisley and Jagger’s story, this book is wholly their own. I would however r

Eyes Turned Skyward is Rebecca’s second book in the NA series. It didn’t make me ugly cry like Full Measures, but Eyes Turned Skyward still had lots of drama to keep me on my toes.

There’s lots of angst!

I loved this book's predecessor Full Measures, hard. But, for some reason, I just didn't love this one as much...and I really can't put my finger on why.

In this instance I do think it's a case of it's not you, it's me, however. I think perhaps I just wasn't in the mood for a lower steam YA when I read this, but I jumped in anyway because I had been so looking forward to it.

Next time I will wait until I am in the proper mood. And I just might try re-reading this one when that proper moo

I adored this book, it was so beautifully written. The storyline was interesting, the characters were amazing, and the writing was great.
“I love you, and it's not the kind of love that wavers. It's the scary kind that doesn't fade. I look at you, and I see not just everything I want for my life, but everything I am, because you took the emptiest, dark pits of my soul and filled them with you. You are as much part of me as my own heart, and it doesn't beat without you.”

This book was absolutely amazing!! Normally I don't like love triangles of any kind, but surprisingly I rather liked this one. It fit into the story so well (view spoiler). The secondary characters were as captivating and fantastic as the MCs. The only thing I had a problem with was the interactions between Jagger and Anna (view spoiler)

“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been and there you will long to return.”

Eyes Turned Skyward takes us on Paisley’s journey as she takes life by the balls, chooses to live it, and lives it in the company of Jagger. The underpinning driver behind Paisley is that she’s racing against time. This is one of those books that makes your heart sing and all the while prepares you for its destruction.

“I’ve seen love burn someone to the ground, and I’ve seen it make sense of the ridiculous. I won’t settle for less than that kind of fire.”

OMG, yes! Jagger and Paisley’s story is funny, sweet, sexy, full of emotion and incredibly swoony. Their romance is intense, and is blended beautifully with drama that contributes to but never overwhelms the story. It sucked me in immediately and had me madly flipping pages, and I loved every moment of it.

Received ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.


I am always a little nervous to start a book when I receive it as an ARC because I feel this sense of obligation to read it to completion even if I may not like it all that much, and then to come up with a review that does the book justice whether it is good or bad. There are times that I get lucky and I immediately get sucked in by the story and its characters; that’s when the obligation becomes an absolute pleasure. Reading Eyes Turn

I didn't like it quite as much as Josh and Ember's story but still pretty good. This felt a bit more YA to me than the last book, prob due to the lack of steam, which would have been much appreciated, it's Jagger, hello?!?!

So this is your basic forbidden romance, lots of secrets, but the author as always does a great job unfolding the story. Definitely enjoyed and will continue to read more from this author.

AWESOME read!!!

Paisley & Jaggar. Sigh.

The writing sucked me right into the story and I couldn't say away from it.

Everyone treats Paisley like she's breakable due to the heart condition she has. Her family wants her to live a bubble. As a result, Paisley doesn't feel like she's really living.

Jaggar doesn't know anything about this heart condition and treats her like she is normal. Finally, Paisley feels like she is alive. Not wrapped in a bubble.

Eyes Turned Skyward es el segundo libro que leo de la autora, Rebecca Yarros, y aunque puede ser leido como independiente, el protagonista masculino aparece en otra de las historias de la autora, Full Measures.
Ya lo he dicho en varias de mis reseñas, soy bastante superficial, lo primero en lo que me fijo antes de leer un libro es en su cubierta y si, se que esta mal, pero hay veces que no puedo evitarlo aunque quiera. * sonrojo *

This is the second book I have read in this series- which by the way are complete standalones- and I have really enjoyed both of them. I think I liked the first book just a little better, because well, Josh. Although, Jagger is a very close second. And up next is Grayson...can't wait for that one! :)

Wow! This was so good! Paisley has a heart condition, the same heart condition that killed her sister. She is kind of living on borrowed time, trying to fit as much into her life as she can by completing a bucket list. When she goes to the beach, checking an item off the list, things take a scary turn when she is throw into the rough water and is rescued by the very sexy Jagger. Jagger has sworn off women while he is in flight school but is instantly attracted to Paisley. I can't say enough how ...more
