Hourglass Ô One hour to rewrite the past For seventeen year old Emerson Cole life is about seeing what isn’t there swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal She’s tried everything but the visions. Rating Clarification 25 Stars closer to 2Well I’m obviously in the minority when it comes to the appeal of this book For me Hourglass just had too many bumps in the journey to make me a fan The storyline felt very choppy with its constant starts and stops and I almost came close to calling it uits around mid way through The hardest part for me was trying to find a connection or some sort of spark between Emerson a name I love BTW and Michael I just didn’t catch it at all ^^ However I did like a couple of the secondary characters including Lily and Kaleb I actually preferred those two over the MCs but what I didn’t understand was why the author chose to reveal Lily’s powers view spoiler of finding lost objects hide spoiler Free download ì E-book, or Kindle E-pub ë Myra McEntire

Myra McEntire ë 9 Free read Keep coming backSo when her well meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass Emerson’s willing to try one last cure But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future it may change her pastWho is this dark mysterious sympathetic guy barely older than Emerson herself who seems to believe every craz. I caught myself rolling my eyes at how hot she found him Throughout the book Emerson could not get over how good Michael looked She was all “His classic looks his lips his clothes even his muscles even saying his muscles have muscles” So yes there were plenty eye roll head meet table moments Then I realized I was being too critical and actually expecting it to suck Once I recognized these let go of some of my expectations things got a little better Yes there’s a lot of the same old same old in it but two things kept me going her family and the hope that it wouldn’t be too YA typical The good things first Her family is present One normally reads of YA protags who feel left out and misunderstood alone to deal with their issues until the reuisite love interest shows up to shake things up In Hourglass Emerson has a loving and supportive family With their parents dead Thomas and Dru his wife are all she has And that’s a good thing because they are there for her while still setting down some rules for her Another positive was the whole seeing ghosts and time travelling thing Or at least it could have been a good thing Because honestly A lot of the book was Emerson obsessing over Michael’s physical perfection The time travel aspect just came across as to easy with the serious lack of explanation Readers are expected to take things at face value Em can see dead people sort of Em can harness her powers And Em can do this by following what bleep bleep says For a character touted to be independent and not so trusting and she really was those things at first I was very surprised by how easily later on she accepted some of the explanations Well maybe because it’s their “electric connection” that’s time and again alluded to in the bookAgain it still sadly is just another YA despite the story being “I see dead people” with the added element of time travel Hourglass could have been so good However the characters weren’t developed Emerson is not as independent or strong as I would have liked But maybe that’s a good thing because there can only be so many “strong” characters right Uh Nope not right at all She came across as jealous and childish Then Michael He’s there he’s hot and Em likes him a lot Why Whu How Is it because he is hot has pouty lips and muscles that have muscles that they develop a romance I mean really The other characters too were not as developed; I wish their abilities were explored a little Oh and there’s also a love triangleIf you still haven’t gotten enough of inexplicable YA romances with characters thought to be tough and strong but are really just enad with the physical attributes of their reuisite romantic interest this might do At least the ending was good It was surprising enough to get me to want to read the next one
