Man oh man, what can I say Writing about time travel requires a very special talent, a talent that this author does not have Don t get me wrong, I think Ms.Pandos has a lot of potential as a writer, but the time travel aspect of this book was extremely disjointed.Everything started out okay but quickly became convoluted and odd Sasquatches, zombies and glitches oh my There was no back story for anything I m not saying that there needed to be a
I was under the impression that this book dealt solely with zombies and it would just be another zombie apocolypse story Boy was I wrong IT WAS SO MUCH MORE I really enjoyed the storyline and thought it was unique and creative Ms Pandos has outdone herself with this book and I really cannot wait to see where this story is headed The main character of Abby is considered a good girl She follows all rules and has never broken a law in her life But when the mysterious blue eyed boy leaves her a note, she has to find out what it says So she sneaks off after curfew and goes by the wall to retrieve it The message has her a little baffled considering the mystery man obviously is from outside the wall What could he possibly know about her life Now no book would be complete without a few swoony boys and this one has a gaggle of them We get a sense of whom Abby feels a connection with but there are a couple of others that she had affections for also and it leads me to believe that there may be quite boy trouble on the horizon.There were actually some zombies, but the book is not focused on this fact and the story has to do with the survival of the people and Abby being a major component My favorite part was the fact that each person upon their eighteenth birthday gets to meet their future self and ask them questions This is so that they can possibly learn from their future mistakes Can you imagine a world where this actually happens One would think that thi
I just want to say OMG this book is amazing I underestimated it a little when I thought it was about zombies and that s not really my cup of tea Seriously it s so much don t let the thought of zombies put you off.Abby lives behind the confines of a wall in Brighton and she is obsessed with her D.O.D date of death watch and always keeps an eye on it to see the minutes ticking by Everyone thinks their safe in Brighton with everything running smoothly and their all scared of the zombies over the wall.Abby only has one day until she turns 16 and meets her compliment which is her 35 year old self and she has questions to ask But during a baseball match in where she slips into a ditch she meets a blue eyed boy who hands her a slip of paper which is forbidden that reads don t go to your meeting.Her m
This was so much fun It was liked Matched, but with zombies and focused less on romance and on the world.In this world it is far in the future, everything we have now is old and outdated The world is a dystopian disguised as a utopian where everyone is watched and carefully monitored Everyone wears a wristband that tells them everything about their life It tells them their death date and allows them to hook up to their computer systems to know many other things about themselves, like who will be their ideal match and what career they ll have On their birthday, they get to meet their future selves and they guide them on the right path to get that future.Abby is a girl very paranoid with her wristband, constantly looking at it and carefully picking her decisions as every one can shorten or lengthen ones lifespan In fact, the opening scene is of Abby looking at her watch during a baseball game and her lifespan is quickly reaching zero it goes years, months, days, minutes, seconds because she s not paying attention and a baseball is about to hit her Abby s life is about to change drastically when a man with blu
Thanks to the publisher and to Netgalley for providing me with this copy in exchange of an honest review.Glitch A Summary1 Stay tuned to find out how you kill one of the most important men of the citywithout a plan Or guns Or anything really.2 Wtf, strong feelings How can you fall in love with someone you ve seen like two times Remember that you had an argument those two times Oh, and he kidnapped you.2.1 Yes, you want to decide things for yourself You re a wild thing and can t be tamedbut I say in the future we re married so you instantly agree and start feeling things.3 Wait what This is so confusing, I don t understand.4 Cliffhanger Not a good one.This book started out really well I was enjoying myself and thinking that maybe I would be able to rate it highlybut then came the love triangle and, with it, a seriously boring middle In the end, I was just dragging it and hoping I could read faster I was so happy when I found out it wasn t 289 pages long as I initially thought.I liked the concept of the city behind walls, the EA, the watch that told you your time of death and even the meeting with the Complement It was an interesting taking on time traveling Beyond that, there s not much to praise.First off, this book has numerous demonstrations of sexism and I m definit
I was seriously looking forward to this book once I heard it had zombies in it, but imagine my surprise when I start reading it and there were minimal zombies in it I was kinda disappointed lol I was expecting a zombie apocalypse or something lol So in fairness, the plot of this book was very different to what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it This book was about time travel, which I normally don t like in books, romance and a little bit of zombies added into the mix Yes, the zombies came into it near the end lol The plot was pretty fast paced and really interesting It was also very unique I don t think I ve read anything quite like it before, which made me enjoy it that little bit There were also plenty of twist and turns to keep me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next I do have to say that the plot did kind of confuse me during the big scene at the end I felt there was a lot in it and I found myself having to read every word to understand it all This could just have been me though lol I loved the plot though and I loved how unique it was The characters were amazing Abby was the main character and she was kinda kick ass in this book Well, from about 70% onwards At the beginning of this book, Abby thought she was safe and living in a secure environ
On her eighteenth birthday, Abby decides to meet her future self in a once in a lifetime meeting despite the warning from a curious rebel who snuck inside city walls to warn her against it Guess she should ve listened Before now, her leap year birthday kept her off their radar, which was advantageous since she was destined to be someone the government would love to sink their claws into Turns out Abby is an oracle just like her future self, but they gain their prophetic sights by literally jumping through time Her future self did a good job hiding her younger self, but now that Abby s on the radar again, that mysterious guy has to step in and sneak her out of the city before it s too late Glitch actually surprised me It seemed a mix of Delirium and the movie In Time with a splash of zombies for good effect A fish out of water story, a good chunk of this novel dealt with Abby learning how to deal with rebel life without the luxuries she was used to and trying to figure out what was truth and what was fiction, because at times, even the rebels seemed a little dishonest I enjoyed watching her fall for a pair of brothers but I have to admi
Review 2 out of 5 starsGlitch is the first book in the Lost in Time series and started off promising, I was intrigued by the unique concept but unfortunately it failed to wow me in the end.Eighteen year old Abigail lives in Brighton, behind a wall where the threat of the undead lives she was to meet her Complement her future self but received a strange note from a stranger warning her not to attend, the mystery had me curious from the onset but the moment Abby left Brighton and was taken to the forbidden zone everything went downhill, the biggest reason a severe case of insta love, she literally fell for Kaden, her kidnapper from the get go.Abby prior to Kaden was obsessive about checking her date of death watch, she was flirtatious with her best friends brother and she lived by the rules but it all went out the door the moment she fell for Kaden, despite also having feelings initially for his brother Memphis who I did find quite appealing She was one of those girls who attracted all the boys attention and acted before she thought things through, it was too much.I think this book could have been amazing but the execution was a let down the time travel aspect was jumpy and the lack of details when it came to the
I underestimated this book I thought URGH zombies But no No no No This book was so much It dealt with time travel and future selves and much I haven t read any books dealing with time so this was so new and intriguing for me Brenda Pandos is a brilliant author and I love her writing style and technique It had it s share of swoon worthy boys and awesome other characters I loved Landon as a character and thought he was really unique I thought the plot was awesome I did not expect 95% of what happens in this book I loved the direction this book was taking from th
