Fun, fun, fun!
Cute, cute, cute!

The Future of Us has a really neat time travel concept that people should get a real kick out of, specially if you have facebook. This was pretty creative and so much fun that I lost myself completely, reading this in just a span of a few hours. Unputdownable.

Josh and Emma are so adorable. Life long friends who drifted apart since one wanted more then the other, but when Emma gets her first computer and Josh brings over AOL things are put into motion that neither of them would have ever expected.
I love time travel books, and while I'm not sure this is considered one in the more traditional sense, I'm still calling it that since Josh and Emma get snip-its of what their lives will be like fifteen years from now.

I loved Josh and thought he was just a great, kind and sweet person. I loved how he acted like a guy once he found out who he was marrying. So cute!! Emma was a good character as well, but she was very frustrating. She became obsessed and mean about her future. She does't know what she wants and doesn't seem like a very happy person. This one thing she did to Josh was a pretty low-blow and I was annoyed that she never even said sorry, but I liked what she tried to do for her best friend and she turned out to be better as the story went on.
The only thing I really didn't care for were Josh's parents. They kinda were just there and I didn't find them necessary to the story-line.

Bottom line, this was a really fun experience and it was the perfect book after reading something heavy like Froi. It was light and easy and simply a really sweet read!

Thanks Arlene for sending it out and Alexa for sharing this one.
I had a blast reading this!:)
