1.5 stars

Gather around, duckies. Natalie’s going to show you how to write your very own paranormal romance!

You see that word there? You won’t need any of that as long as you follow this easy how-to guide.

Step 1: Creating your heroine.

Now, it is essentially important that she’s naturally pretty, but doesn’t acknowledge it. The best way to do this is by having her look in a mirror, describe her appearance, and then say how utterly ugly or plain she is.

5 Words: Definitely not my cuppa. Meh.

It started out OK with this book. I featured it on my Showcase Sunday and Deyse at Deyse Says It All and I decided we'd buddy read it since we both had it sitting there looking pretty. Because that cover is so pretty.

And it started off as a pretty OK read. Nothing spectacular but definitely interesting. But then life and far more interesting books got in the way and it took me over a month to read this pretty short novel. I started to care less and less abou
2.5 stars

An intriguing blurb, eye-catching cover, time traveling, The Romanov, an unusual main character, on Read Now list in NetGalley, what's not to like? Those things basically sold me to read it as soon as I click the send to my Kindle button.

So, I read it. On first chapter when the Ouija board was mentioned I thought this could be an interesting story. Coincidentally, I read a book that begins with Ouija board too before I read this book. I love it and hope I will enjoy this book as I enjo
I read "time travel" and "Romanov Russia" in this novel's synopsis and thought this book must have been written for me...because let me tell you, I have quite the fascination with the last ruling royal family of Imperial Russia. A revolution, an assassination, an escaped princess whose body was never found? That is the stuff of my childself's imagination. (Also, this is one of my favorite movies of all time -- judge me.) In fact, I've immersed myself so much that I can recite the particular char ...more

The pretty cover and the lure of Russia and Romanovs was promising. The writing wasn't perfect, but it was alright. I'll admit that I had misgivings reading the first few chapters. A bunch of high school (acted more like middle school) kids posturing and playing with a Ouija board? It wasn't well done and the characters fell flat.

Things picked up and the writing improved. I got swept up into the plot, specifically the flashbacks about the Romanov family. There were fun mysterious parts I enjoyed

The cover of this book is stunning! I was drawn in by the cover art alone. let me say, I believe YA novels have some of the BEST covers.

This story is a beautiful one. There is love and tragedy it really moves you in a special way. I am A romance reader. usually contemporary romance. I have never read a romance novel that has moved me more. It is soul deep.

This novel took me a long time to read because of my hectic schedule with school. However, today I finished Endless and it was absolutely beautiful.

I loved the main character, Jenny. I felt like she was the right balance of strong yet submissive and never came off as whiny. I felt like Ben and her developed a strong relationship. I wasn't a fan of Nikolai however. He came into the story suddenly and it was almost insta-love between him and Jenny. However, I still thought he was a great character

4 of 5 Stars: What does this rating mean to me? I loved this book and enjoyed every moment of my reading experience!

This novel had me lost in its pages from the moment I began reading! Jenny is a wonderful main character that is so easy to relate with. She is strong ,passionate and doesn't want to run away when things get weird.

Endless has a little bit of everything in it.You start off with Jenny, she is a young woman in high school, who has the ability to see past lives by jus

Jenny is a girl who's generally misunderstood. She is different and she knows it. One night at a party she reluctantly takes part in some Ouija board action but what happens catches everyone off guard.
I immediately am taken in by Jen and then Nikolai and of course Ben. I like the dynamic of the relationship build with each individual person in the story.
This story is really good and it takes you on a mysterious journey that merges past and present in a unique way as far as books I have read. Wi

The synopsis of Endless intrigued me right away. A contemporary YA novel with elements of time travel and Russian history, specifically the Romanov family. I was sold. Plus, that cover... beautiful!

Jenny has always known there was something different about her. Touching others leads to strange visions that she cannot control. Wearing gloves helps but she still feels like an outsider. Her focus is on her painting, her father and her best (and only) friend Tiffany. An experience with a Ouija board

I should have known as soon as the book started out with a ouija board that it was not my type of story. Endless by Amanda Gray is the kind of book that just doesn't work for so many reasons. First off it is sold to the consumer as "He has traveled across time and space to find her. But will she love him the way she once did?

The main character Jenny is a reincarnated version of a Russian girl named Maria. After the aforementioned ouija board incident, Jenny starts having dreams about her pas

I received a free copy of this book through netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I thank Netgalley, the publisher, and Amanda Gray.

In Amanda Gray's novel, Endless, Jenny has always been different. A single touch of a person's skin to her hands can bring up visions of the darkest thoughts. Her mother is dead and her father is a bit too clingy. She has one friend and a bunch of people who play pretend. She has a talent in painting and art. What she didn't expect was for two boys, Ben and Ni

This book just didn't gel with me. It was a classic case of "telling, not showing." Too many repeated conversations, too many unnecessary characters, too many stock phrases, a love story that felt completely forced, and a seriously convoluted plot.

The main character is supposed to be a "weird" girl, but I didn't ever understand why. Because she's an artist? She's such a loner!

And she has this secret ability to see the past if she touches someone. But then spends most of the book unwilling to be

I love it when a book takes me by surprise – in a good way of course. I was drawn to this on NetGalley by the cover firstly, and then the synopsis made me request it, but I had no idea what to expect. I’ve only read a small handful of time travel books before, and even though the notion intrigues me, I’ve just not picked that many up. I went into it thinking it would be OK, but only OK to be honest. Do other people often experience this too, or is it just me?!

'Was it really just her visions that set her apart? Made her feel different? Wasn't it true, if she was honest with herself, that it was more than that? That she'd always felt out of place? Not quite present in her own skin?'

Time travel, reincarnation, soulmates reuniting in another time, but is this truly THEIR time? Endless by Amanda Gray is a lightly different twist in the “YA paranormal, soulmates meant for each other,” genre. Jenny has always been different, able to read others by touch, forcing her to wear fingerless gloves, often thought of as a quirky fashion statement, as part of her artistic ways.

Jenny's life was pretty normal. She worked, painted, had minimal social contact... But she was happy enough with what she had. One night, she is peer pressured by a couple of acquaintances to partake in the calling to any ghosts through the use of a Ouija board. And then everything changes.

Endless is neither terrible nor good. It's a perfectly okay story that might even be a good, beloved story in the right hands. For me, however, it just didn't work.

The writing was certainly competent and I can't complain about the style. I found the main character, Jenny, to be fleshed out and that I understood who she was as a person. I was even able to identify with her reluctant friend Ben. In fact, part of my trouble is that I liked and was able to connect with Ben in a way that was complete

An alright book. Nothing to make me want to recommend it to my friends but not not badly written or plotted.

There is a whole lot going on in this story and I really wished the author (authors?) would have taken more time developing certain aspects. For example, I would have loved to see more flashbacks to the Romanov era. For one, I'm a totally fan girl when it comes to glitzy, historical royalty and no one did it better than the Romanovs. Give me more parties! Dresses! Tiaras!

The cover on this is what drew me in first. I know I have said that before in reviews but I have to admit it every now and then, mostly because I know it is shallow but also because sometimes I like to prove that a pretty cover does and can hold a pretty story too.

Predictable. Bears many similarities (too close?) with Time's Twisted Arrow.

Instalove. Reincarnation/Soulmate love not done right. Just because you knew each other in a past life does not mean that you would fall immediately into his arms. He's basically a stranger to you in this life no matter how familiar you are with each other in past lives.

Ever since I first saw this cover, I wanted to read this book. The cover is fantastic and it really drew me in. That's the whole point, right? Well, it worked and boy was I disappointed in the story.

The book starts out with Jenny and some friends sitting in a room with a Ouija board. Jenny didn't want to participate but her friend Amber begged her to come and Tiffany really guilt tripped her into using the thing. Jenny wore gloves and they made fun of her for it

Darkness didn’t scare her. It was the things she could see that did. The things she saw and felt when her hands came into contact with certain people.

Jenny Kramer has a gift. Ever since she was a child, she has been seeing visions of what seems to be a past life. Everything in her visions feels too real to simply be a dream. Everything is relatively fine until Pandora’s Box

Endless is a beautiful story that drew me in from start to finish, leaving me wanting and hoping for more from the author with the same main character. A mix of intrigue, mystery and romance all bound up together was enough to keep me turning the page.

*sigh* This book did not work for me. It felt like completely two different books. The first half was a creepy, paranormal story. The second half (which I skimmed) was a weird twist on reincarnation and time travel. It's saying something that I don't like it, because I LOVE reincarnation.

The beginning of the story was so promising. It had an average start, but I could see potential. A girl with the power to see people's past lives and dreams about Russia? YES PLEASE! Then Jenny meets Ben. After

So much potential. I had such high hopes for this novel because the premise was so interesting. But I guess I should have figured the book would turn out this way when the word "traveled" was spelled wrong in the blurb. Yeah, yeah ... I know that sounds mean but as a reader, I feel robbed. Robbed of the experience that I had so hoped would happen when reading this book.

On with the slaughter! Haha ... mostly kidding. So the characters were okay
