Blurb:
Is life monotonous? Mercy certainly thinks so,
but coming home to her empty London flat after another miserable day at work, she finds she is being haunted by a pair of eyes.

Is she delusional, or is time the delusion?
Falling for a time traveler comes with plenty of surprises and a good deal of danger.

Tancred Nine is an adventure in himself, a man of startlingly strange ideas and beliefs mixed with humor and excitement. But he comes from a time where playing with genetics has gone horribly wrong.

Travelling through time tunnels can be a risky business,
which door should you take, which need to be avoided at all costs?

Follow Mercy as she abandons her timid and tedious life for the love of adventure and the most delusional creature of all.
Can Mercy help save the future of humanity, or will she lose herself in time?

 

Gotta Get Back In Time

 

*** I was given this ARC in exchange for an honest review. *** 

I thought that this book would be really interesting because I normally have like time travel books in the past. Plus this one has new ideas that involve altering genetics and strange creatures. Some you can see that look hideous, but some are invisible.

Although this book was so overwhelming with new ideas and information that every single page was just information dump after information dump. I felt confused and completely lost most of the time. Plus Tancred, the traveler talked in circles most of the time in his own language from the “future” which didn’t really make much sense to me or Mercy which was the girl from the past. 

So I kind of felt like I was in a boat without paddles in the middle of a body of water. It was an unpleasant feeling to say the least. I guess I was just mainly disappointed because I know that this book could have been so great if it wouldn’t have jumped all over the place so much and if things were explained more. So maybe I wouldn’t be a flailing fish? I don’t know. 

If the ideas would have been more spread out too this would have improved the book too and explained in extreme depth. We the readers cannot guess at these complicated things of your brilliant mind. At least not yet, we need some more background information, please. 

I really did enjoy the part about the dinosaurs though. I thought that part was interesting and how they went to sites to dig them up. That was fascinating and also when they went back to see them. The descriptions of them was almost like I could see them and I really enjoyed that! So that was the only time I really enjoyed the vivid details in this book where I didn’t want to put the book down.  

This just really wasn’t the type of book for me to read. Apparently, not all time travel books are for me.

Blurb: She’s my roommate.

I know how she takes her tea, how she organizes her closet.

I know when she goes to bed each night, what she eats for breakfast, the passcode on her phone.

I know she calls her mother on Mondays, takes barre on Thursdays, and meets her friends for drinks on Fridays.

But more important than any of that … I know what she did.

 

Mr Sandman, Bring Me A Dream

*** I received this ARC in exchanged for an honest review. ***

So when I read the blurb, I was extremely curious as to what this was about. What happened? What DID The roommate do?  Was this like, I Know What You Did Last Summer ? I HAD to know. So as soon as I started reading this book, I was pulled in because it wasn’t what I thought it would be like at first. Nothing was suspicious, I mean NOTHING. So I was a little confused, but I carried on because I needed to know what happened next. 

Everything was completely normal. Even including one of the main characters being down on her luck in the beginning. So I read on to see where her life and luck would take her in this story…

I just knew something good would happen. I was so right! As the book went on things got weirder and weirder. At one point I wondered if I was in The Twilight Zone. Things weren’t making sense and had me questioning why the characters did that. Namely, that damn roommate! There are some bizarre things that happen that had me scratching my head, like whaaaa? I would not want a roommate like that FYI. I never felt so weirded out in my life.

Also the plot twists that happen in the book towards the end, I didn’t see coming, you guys. I felt like the rug was ripped out from under me and I fell on my ass. I looked around like, what the fuck just happened and how? It was jarring to say the least.  This book honestly reminded me of the book, The Girl On The Train and the movie, Single White Female along with its own twisted, mixed up ideas. 

I look forward to reading another book by Minka Kent because this one was extremely satisfying. Read at your own risk.
