Book review: Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun

Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too by Jomny Sun
Rating: ★★★★★

Everyone’s a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is the illustrated story of a lonely alien sent to observe Earth, only to meet all sorts of creatures with all sorts of perspectives on life, love, and happiness, all while learning to feel a little better about being an alien—based on the enormously popular Twitter account, @jonnysun.

Here is the unforgettable story of Jomny, a lonely alien who, for the first time ever, finds a home on our planet after learning that earthlings can feel lonely too. Jomny finds friendship in a bear tired of other creatures running away in fear, an egg struggling to decide what to hatch into, an owl working its way to being wise, a tree feeling stuck in one place, a tadpole coming to terms with turning into a frog, a dying ghost, a puppy unable to express itself, and many more.

Through this story of a lost, lonely and confused alien finding friendship, acceptance, and love among the creatures of Earth, we will all learn how to be a little more human. And for all of us earth-bound creatures here on this planet, we can all be reminded that sometimes, it takes an outsider to help us see ourselves for who we truly are.

I didn’t really know what I was getting into with this one, but I knew that I’d seen great reviews on Goodreads, so when I was looking for something cute and happy to read, I decided I might as well check it out from the library. I thought I’d like it, but I definitely didn’t expect it to be my first five-star book of the year.

I have a lot of thoughts about this book, but they mostly all fit into two categories. First, it was just so cute and wholesome and nice. Second, it just made me so, so happy. I read it in one night and I don’t think that I can recommend it enough. It’s so quirky and wonderful.

I’ll leave you with two scenes I enjoyed:

#ps19: a book featuring an extinct or imaginary creature

2 things this week:

  • I just wanted to share that I’ve packed six boxes of books so far and it’s hardly made a dent in my bookcases. Please send help.
  • I think my slump is finally over!!! I finished five books this week and am in the middle of a sixth.

Blog hopping:

  • In case you need help with a reading challenge prompt (or love adaptations!), Mandy and Sha shared a list of YA books becoming movies this year.
  • Mandy and Sha also talked about their most problematic books of 2018, and I love a good rant post.
  • I’ve been really into graphic novels lately, so I loved Destiny’s list of the best graphic novels & manga of 2018.

Song of the week:

I love Taylor Swift so much, and it seems like I’ve heard her everywhere this week! I heard You Belong With Me on the radio while I was driving home from work yesterday and it took me right back to my teenage years. ❤
