it was amazing
Read from June 07 to 12, 2011

Hourglass was an incredibly impressive debut.

I was captivated from the very first page. Emerson is an irresistible character, I loved everything about her. Her snark, stubbornness, selflessness.... vulnerabilities. She was a very likable character, and I don't think the story would have been that impressive without her. Her relationship with Michael was heartfelt and warm, it just felt natural, no insta-love for these two.

There were aspects of the novel that I didn't anticipate at all! And I don't really want to get into them, because I think the surprise of discovering it yourself is half of the fun! Myra does an excellent job of keeping the reader engaged and giving them just enough information without the overload.

Hourglass is a must read. It has a little bit of everything... romance, mystery, suspense... it's definitely a book that will appeal to a wide range of readers. Add Hourglass to your reading piles, I know it'll be one of your favorites too!

Rachelia (Bookish Comforts) I am reading this book right now because of your amazing review. I agree with the draw being towards Emerson at first - I love her personality!
