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

Word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened? Full of atmosphere mystery and romance Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science fiction genres in a seductive remarkable young adult deb Favourite uote Most of what I say is complete truth My edit button is brokenI was excited to read Hourglass I mean how could you not be with such an intriguing synopsis and gorgeous cover And while I ended up really enjoying Hourglass I did struggled at the beginning The start was a bit slow for me It lacked that something special that makes you get caught up in the story and care about what is happening But half way through things changed and there was action plot twists and chemistry between the characters and I began to feel captivated by Hourglass And even though the concept of time travel is not uniue this did feel like a fresh take on this supernatural elementEmerson is an enjoyable protagonist She is brave strong and uick witted character and is a stand outs in the sea of likeable YA lead females Then there is Michael he is loyal smart and gorgeous You know the typical leading man I liked him but he is kind of forgettable once you read the book There is nothing wrong with him I just didn't feel the swoon The secondary characters however are strong and distinctive I especially loved Kaleb a lot than Michael no there is not a love triangle well not really okay only a little And the villain he would have to be one of the most surprising and fascinating characters in the storyThe romance was sweet Much like the rest of the book it took me a bit to warm up to it I got frustrated at the beginning because the characters had this instant attraction love thing but did this no whole we can't be together dance Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't And it didn't at the beginning But as I got to know the characters better and understand the reasons behind their actions I ended up liking the romanceOverall despite my rocky start with Hourglass I did really enjoy it And will be definitely reading of this series

HourglassOne 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 k WARNING This review will not be coherent and most definitely a rage as I am pissed That is allEmerson A short poem I have composed and to be sung to the tune of ‘Georie Peorgie’ the first half and at the second half to ‘Humpty Dumpty’ lies below The rest of the verse is purely improvised Mostly“Emerson Emerson barely foot fiveTried to be spunky and made the kids cryShe terrorized the readers and made them beg “Emerson be gone fowl beast Stay away”Until one day she fell was pushed off the Great Wall of ChinaAnd all the King’s horses and all the King’s menWait who was Emerson again? I can’t hear you over the party”Meaning the party for my completion of this novel Who wouldda thunk I'd finish? Rating5 stars As you might have gathered Emerson is a very special person Throughout the novel this is all I got 'OOOH Emerson is so athletic Emerson is so gorgeous Emerson is so thoughtful' Emerson is so freaking perfect Get me a hand gun I wanna hunt her down How I hate Emerson I never did understand when people raged about Bella nor had issues with her because at the time I read Twilight I hadn’t yet found a problem with the essentially 'perfect' heroine who gets love money and everything she wants in the endUntil I met the pygmy ninja that is Emerson Cole Someone please explain to me exactly how that is even possible? Or how the girl can be everything McEntire intends for her to be? She is snarky but not too snarky gorgeous but obliviously unaware of it even when others persist in gushing over her like she’s some prized turkey The girl is 'damaged' because the death of her parents provides that opening for empathy sympathy my foot and Emerson is somehow thoughtful as well even though she does as she wishes regardless of people's warnings or opinions a good 99% of the time I don't know about you lot but I demand some credibility Characters are not genetic engineered people you can put together McEntire they aren’t dollies to be assembled into perfect Bella Swan or Nora Grey wannabes It never works out well when authors attempt to make their characters essentially perfect this book being a very apt example of how uickly things can go wrong Stuff hits the roof when by halfway into the book a reader despises most of your characters There is something very wrong with the animosity I feel for this girl possibly because I was made to suffer through days in her life for approximately 390 pages This is a brief summary of my journey with the book Notice how uickly my patience diminishesPage 1 AW YEAH new book New bookPage 50 Is it just meor is Emerson annoying as that creepy Fellow Orange down on YouTube land? No maybe Page 130 Am I done yet?Page 250 Rolls eyes at everythingPage 300 Fires flamethrower about to aimPage 390 Very tempted to gag on book wondering if I can use the pages as kindling Must ask library Winter is coming early this year This girl grated on my nerves worse than a freaking Woodpecker on an oak tree It was all about her and by the end I stopped caring about Emerson and Michael they could both go jump off a cliff together for all I cared They were excrutiatingly annoying; the fact that they only ended up together because of attractiveness and some very big problem in the way neurons in their bodies perceived contact played a massive role in why I do not give a buck what they doBecause it was so obvious from the beginning that they would end up together It practically screamed at me in the face that Michael and Emerson would be a couple Even when they had no real chemistry past lightning touc
