DNF Earth & Sky by Megan Crewe

Earth & Sky
ISBN: 9781477847848
October 28, 2014
Amazon Link 
* I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review*

DNF at 63%

I found this novel lacking a good plot. I'm just going to list my dislikes and likes for this book.

Dislikes:

1. Plot was very boring.

I was expecting  extra terrestrial alien races, different planets, spaceships...a sci-fi type of read. Therefore time travel was a surprise and not what I expected.

2. The world building didn't make much sense to me.

3.  The main character was hard to relate to.

4. The PDF Format was hard to read.

The whole time I was reading this, I felt like something was off, I couldn't point my finger, it just wasnt my cup of tea.

Likes:

1. The book is well written, the plot just needs work.

2. The cover is very pretty but kind of misleading

Megen Crewe is Awesome! She sent me awesome swag.

Overall, I made it passed page 100 and in fact over 50%. The writing was good, it was really only the plot that bored me. This doesnt deserve a one star by any means since I would recommend it to a few people.

What did you think of Earth & Sky? I hope it was more enjoyable. Comment below and let me know!

  1. Hm this is actually a really great DNF review! I love that there were things you liked (and the author sounds so nice!) but the plot just wasn't for you. Also, I agree with you, I cannot get past some of the terrible formatting I've encountered! Especially when you are already not exactly loving the book, it makes it almost unbearable.

    It's funny because I think I would prefer the time travel thing to the space alien thing, so maybe it would work for me. I actually didn't want to read it because of that, but now I am reconsidering. Very nice review!

    1. Thank you so much! I really hate writing DNF reviews so I reverted to listing the pros and cons.

      Formatting is a big deal for me. I prefer my kindle and overdrive app to anything else. And PDFs are not ebooks in my opinion.

      Give it a shot! I believe it is also $4 originally priced from Amazon. :) I hope you like it more than I did.

  2. Oh, what a shame you couldn't finish this one! It's a shame that it wasn't what you were expecting. In fact, this one is on my TBR list because I do enjoy time travel novels and would like to see more of them and try them. So I think I will still try giving this one a shot. I hope your next read is more suited to you :)

      I hope you like it! Time travel just isn't my thing but I do want to read Cristin Terrill All Our Yesterday. I've heard nothing but good things about it. Let me know what you think
