It's Monday, What Am I Reading?

Loop (Loop #1)Title: Loop.
Author: Karen Akins.

"At a school where Quantum Paradox 101 is a required course and history field trips are literal, sixteen year-old time traveler Bree Bennis excels…at screwing up.

After Bree botches a solo midterm to the 21st century by accidentally taking a boy hostage (a teensy snafu), she stands to lose her scholarship. But when Bree sneaks back to talk the kid into keeping his yap shut, she doesn’t go back far enough. The boy, Finn, now three years older and hot as a solar flare, is convinced he’s in love with Bree, or rather, a future version of her that doesn’t think he’s a complete pain in the arse. To make matters worse, she inadvertently transports him back to the 23rd century with her. 

Once home, Bree discovers that a recent rash of accidents at her school are anything but accidental. Someone is attacking time travelers. As Bree and her temporal tagalong uncover seemingly unconnected clues—a broken bracelet, a missing data file, the art heist of the millennium—that lead to the person responsible, she alone has the knowledge to piece the puzzle together. Knowledge only one other person has. Her future self.

But when those closest to her become the next victims, Bree realizes the attacker is willing to do anything to stop her. In the past, present, or future. "

My Thoughts So Far:

According to my Kindle App, I'm about 46% of the way through Loop! Before receiving the chance to be in a blog tour for this book, I hadn't heard anything about it, or the author. After giving the synopsis a read, I knew there would be no way I could turn this book down...because would doesn't love time traveling?!

With being about way through, my mind has been boggled and I've already had a few good laughs! Bree is absolutely hilarious; the things she thinks and the things she says out loud sometimes are so blunt and honest, and that's what I love about her.

The other thing that I really like so far, is seeing the relationship between Bree and Finn, both now and then. Not because the book goes from the past to the future, and back again, but because Bree is living in the now (barely knowing Finn), while Finn is living in the "future" of their relationship, and always forgetting Bree isn't. It's interesting, cute and funny!

I'm exciting to go to work today, so I can continue reading! Have you read Loop yet?

  1. Oh I saw this one on Netgalley! You're about half way through! I'm happy you're enjoying it, I'm always wary of time travel because the concept is always awesome but the execution...sometimes isn't as awesome. Can't wait to see your review!
