Because time isn't always on my side when it comes to reading books and writing reviews, here's a list of some of the awesome books I've bought or been sent recently.
How did I get it?: Advanced Review Copy from Random House
Genre: YA/Sci-Fi/Time Travel
Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility.
As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate—and what consequences they can bear in order to stay together.
A YA take on The Time Traveller's Wife, with a teen boy who goes back in time to watch rock concerts. This book sounds awesome.
