  1. Actual rating 4.5I started reading this book with less than stellar I am completely incapable of writing a review without at least one bad pun expectations.Really I mean Earth Girl as a title I know, prejudice against the titleKhanh, you stupid, immature little girl I have my reasons, though There have been few pieces of YA sci fi fiction based on interplanetary plots that have been worth the time they took to read The other reason was because the title brought to mind the kitschy movie Earth Gi [...]

  2. This dystopian novel grazzed as in surprised me the language is very amusing in terms of its totally awesome world building and completely impressive premise Imagine Earth being the last planet a person would want to inhabit after the Exodus during which Earthlings hastily portalled all the way to all these civilized other planets leaving on Earth the Handicapped aka the apes rolls eyes or those immune system is not pliable because of their throwback genes , LMAO for the living conditions of sa [...]

  3. Rereading Edit Ich stehe auch heute noch zu der Rezension von damals und m chte noch hinzuf gen, wie gut mir der Love Interest aka Fian und die damit verbundene Liebesgeschichte gefallen hat Fian ist einfach nicht der perfekte, allm chtige Charakter mit d sterer Vergangenheit wie es sie zuhauf im Genre gibt Fian wirkt durch seine Fehler echt und das machte die Liebesgeschichte einfach wundervoll 3Zur AufmachungKeine der beiden Aufmachungen schafft es die Geschichte des Buches richtig einzufangen [...]

  4. 4.5 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 201When I think about Young Adult books from Pyr, words that spring immediately to mind are distinct , unconventional and unique I guess that s why I ve been counting on this book to lift me out of my YA slump I ve been feeling rather burned out by the love triangles, broody heroes, and paranormal fantasy settings in this category lately, and Earth Girl looked like the perfect cure to this particular malaise.My instincts proved correct.The story [...]

  5. The heroine s character development was superb, but the world building was subpar the world buildingThe world building failed to respect the book s central theme of history and ultimately its setting as an alternative reality No explanation was offered for how all nations united as one civilization Neither was an explanation offered for how people suddenly stopped being religious despite the brief but incredibly jarring sentence about how physicists found proof for creationism simply just to exp [...]

  6. Honestly, I d sort of dismissed this book, because I saw the pretty cover and then never heard another thing about it Only when my friend Kayla tweeted me about how good this book was and how much she thought I would like it did I look into it again That was when I realized why I d heard so little buzz about it the cover I was familiar with was for the UK edition, and it s only just now publishing in the US So, basically, Kayla knows me well and this book is stellar see what I did there pay atte [...]

  7. Originally reviewed on The Book SmugglersNearly 800 years in the future, Earth and the rest of the universe is a very different place Thanks to scientist Thaddeus Wallam Crane, humanity is no longer limited by accelerated particle engines, or the restrictive harness of speed of light travel Wallam Crane s invention of portals mean that humanity can conquer the most distant stars, unrestrained by space and time Well, that s true for 99.9% of humanity That remaining fraction, that niggling 0.1%, i [...]

  8. Janet Edwards has created a beautiful world where it only takes seconds to go from planet to planet, there s no hunger, no poverty and from what it looks like no crime There has also been a giant exodus of people to different planets, so now the Earth is somewhat sparsely populated Can you imagine An Earth with few people would be a stunning place, teaming with nature and life I want to live there Eighteen year old Jarra doesn t quite see it that way though, and nor does she describe it as such [...]

  9. 3 stars.First thing this was not a bad book It had an interesting premise, the world building was solid, and the idea was a unique spin on a way overused setting.My problem was with the way it was written and how the events were played out The premise might have been good, but the problem of the story Jarra s Handicap was resolved with boring acceptance that was barely even elaborated on Janet Edwards simply skimmed past the resolvement of the issue, gushing on about how Jarra has done such a sh [...]

  10. Earth Girl is one of those rare gems which you come across by luck, then when you read it, it completely blows you mind It is a stunning debut novel which keeps the reader wanting Even when I d finished this book it was still at the front of my mind This doesn t happen to me often but when it does it really shows how good a book is The story and plot were still reeling in my mind, I was analysing the events like I was there, it was brilliant I can easily say that I loved this book I would even [...]

  11. This 1 star rating was only for one reason and this reason was big enough to eclipse all the good things that was happening in this book Let s start with the good The world building was great Descriptions were vivid and although I had no idea how the portals and the multiple planets worked it didn t matter because the story was mostly taking place on earth The idea was also great and seemed unique with a fresh look in a used setting.Now for the bad I didn t like the writing Although I could excu [...]

  12. There better be a 1 Narnia world.2 Terabithia world.3 A world for every single Disney movie,4 I don t know where this list is going

  13. First and foremost, I d like to thank my good friend since my scanlation days, Kureha, for recommending this book to me, because otherwise, I wouldn t have touched this Not the book s fault, really Ever since I read and vehemently disliked British author Teri Terry s Slated, I ve become wary of English British YA novels But thank goodness for angels like my friend, because this novel turned out to be a very pleasant surprise I loved it So how do you know if this book is for you Well, let s run d [...]

  14. I had really high hopes for this book but was simply not impressed The idea for the book is creative enough but I felt the writing was unbalanced things that I wish had been pages and pages were only a paragraph, and things that were pages and pages could ve been a single sentence Instead of expanding upon the situations that really could ve let the main character s personality shine she truncated them to almost nothing and then spent multiple pages on different types of land roving vehicles Lik [...]

  15. I didn t finish this book in fact I didn t even get close so I can t speak to how well or not it handles its central premise I will say that I m immediately leery of a piece of genre fiction that creates a new oppressed class, transposes a lot of the mindset and language including a name which, if I m not mistaken, is often seen as derogatory that applies to a real life group of people onto them and then spins a story out of it Is that justified I don t know, but alarm bells were going off durin [...]

  16. review from 3rd Reading So I d been wanting to read Earth Star for awhile, but felt like I didn t really remember enough about Earth Girl for it to be enjoyable So I waited until I had some time free for a reread I was really surprised by how much I loved it Especially considering my review below and my original 3 star review This time around, I thought the world building brilliant and fascinating, and felt much a connection to Jarra And I can t wait to read the rest of the series.New Rating 4. [...]

  17. I wanted so badly for this to be a five star read I loved this book I couldn t put it down, and when I finished reading it last night up past my bedtime and went to sleep, I dreamt about this world and the people in it, though surreal and dream like, of course My dream back log is often two weeks long, which means something that happens in the real world won t show up in Dreamland for about fourteen days This jumped the subconscious queue There were a couple of consistency and other errors, suc [...]

  18. This novel has a fantastic premise A girl who is trapped on earth while the rest of humanity travels through the universe, living on newly discovered planets and just being cooler Then she decides to go to a foreign as in a different planet university that holds its mandatory history course program on earth which makes sense since they re studying human history Apparently, in the future, archaeology is a pretty darn big deal because earth is reverting to natural status and human beings no longer [...]

  19. PLOT A history loving teen jumps into a challenging situation with all new people but can she dig her way out of some big lies IN BRIEF Younger YA science fiction adventure, 1 in a series Some interesting issues for a good main character Jarra, age 18 to deal with Overall a fun and sometimes mildly funny ride at a slow to moderate pace It s mostly light hearted and positive, if a little lacking on suspension of disbelief which is perfectly fine for the intended audience TRUTH IN COVER BLURBS One [...]

  20. I was absolutely enthralled with Jarra and her story Now that Earth has portalling tech to instantly travel from world to world, they ve explored and settled on many But there are still those babies that are born and can t survive on worlds other than Earth They have to be sent back immediately, and anyone who has one automatically assumes their partner has old ancient genes These children are raised by the hospitals on Earth with every benefit, but they can never leave the planet Everyone assum [...]

  21. First things first, this review is from an uncorrected proof copy the book will be available to buy in the shops on August 16th The year is 2788 and thanks to the use of portals mankind has now moved out to the stars.Unfortunately, due to a problem with the immune system, a small percentage of humans are only able to survive on Earth Portalling off planet would mean death unless they can be sent straight back to Earth and hospitalised These people, know as handicapped or apes amongst other thing [...]

  23. This book caught my interest without seeking my permission The whole concept of the book, for me, is ingenious and engrossing The setting is, of course, futuristic, post apocalyptic being Earth as not the only planet that mankind can live Yes, many planets, became the habitats of the people And Earth was just a home for the Handicapped, an ape This kind of setting intrigued me.Character development for the MC is zan Totally zan Jarra, the MC, wants to prove herself to the exos that she is not ju [...]

  24. Contains minor spoilers, nothing major but some people like knowing nothing at all, so you ve been warned This was a surprisingly fun start to the series I ve owned this book for around 2 years, never picked it up as it never called to me Then I made a tbr jar for 2017 and it was the first book I pulled out It gave me the incentive to read it and I m so glad I did Jarra was a really cool protagonist I did get a bit confused by the lost memory part It seemed a bit out of the blue, but I sort of u [...]

  25. That was totally amaz I think the 2788 language is catching I had my doubts about this book, Earth Girl Not exactly the best title But WOW was this book amazing The storyline was brilliant and incredibly developed, Jarras character development was brilliant and there were definatley some surprises I was not expecting At times the whole Exodus and other planets and portals was slightly confusing but honestly that didn t matter because that isn t the books main focus, but is focussed on Jarra and [...]

  28. Love this Can t get this slang out of my head, but it s so good Jarra was a little too perfect but whatever I still like her as a heroine Full review to come update Originally posted over on my blogI had never come across this book until about a month or so ago, on another blog After browsing my library s ebooks, I decided to go ahead and read it So glad that I did, because it is truly a great story I have the second book on hold, so hopefully I will be getting that soon Earth Girl is not exactl [...]
