3.5 stars and I am so torn about whether to round up or down. I like how everything wrapped up, but kind of wanted... more. And again, if you're more into the faster pacing of YA books this might be a bit too slow. It did drag in parts for me even though this story had a ton to cover.

These books do such a great job of handling issues with race, gender, and sexuality throughout time (and just oppression in general. Like the book is dedicated "for all those history has forgotten"). And can we take

I don't know where to begin with Wayfarer, honestly. This book was a literally more of a rollercoaster than any book I've read recently! It was addicting and exhilarating and kept me on my toes and had me in tears at the end. I don't think I've ever been the type of person for anything but devastation-tears.

This book changed that.
3.5/5 full review to come!

i love love love this ending but found the first half of the book confusing. but still, SO GOOD!

What a beautiful cover! && Julian is alive??? No effing way! I am NOT liking that. I hate him but I think I'd give him a chance to redeem himself. But I'd still hate Sophia though. Jes sayin'.

Oh man. Have you ever read a book that is just *so* good that it knocks you on your ass and you cant read anything else for at least a week? YEP. That is exactly what WAYFARER did to me.

I grabbed an early copy of WAYFARER at YallFest in November and all but drove straight home to read it. I had already reread PASSENGER the previous month in preparation for this release so the need to find out what had become of Etta was TOO REAL. And Alex didnt disappoint! The beginning of WAYFARER drops you rig
I didn't give Passenger a very high rating and was kind of disappointed when I read it. After reading an excerpt of Wayfarer months ago, I am telling you this: I am quite thrilled. I AM VERY EXCITED TO MEET (view spoiler) I underwent an inexplicable and instant fan girl mode! I have a feeling that I would fall hard for his character. I could not wait any longer for 2017!

I don't have the words to adequately express how much I loved this book. It was a brilliant conclusion to this duology, and had such heart to it. I absolutely adore Alexandra Bracken's writing! Some small part of me wants this series to continue, but maybe with side characters having their own stories.

While my favorite people, Nicholas and Etta, spent much of the story apart, I spent much of the story anticipating when they would reunite, and it didn't disappoint. They spend much of the story fi

If you recall, I adored Passenger. So much. I loved the glimpses of the different places and times. I loved Etta’s trying to figure out where she fit in the world. I loved Nicholas. Because of my love for Passenger and the knowledge that it would be a duology, I had a lot of expectations for Wayfarer. A LOT.

PS. Don’t read any farther if you haven’t yet read Passenger. Don’t do it.

Right off the bat, I was curious about how Bracken would expand the world when we already had the time travel compone

Actual Rating: exactly 4/5.

"How sad for them, she thought, that they had grown up without any thorns with which to protect themselves."

It's kind of hard to write a review for a sequel when I never did for the first one. But I am so happy to say that this turned out to be a wonderful conclusion to Passenger. And that ending...

There is so much I love about this duology. Alexandra Bracken wrote such a detailed and wonderfully emotional story. It's as much about time travel as it is about famil

What a conclusion to one of my most favorite fantasy duologies! This was everything I wanted and more, and I only wish that Wayfarer was lengthier so I could continue glimpsing into these precious characters’ lives. This book left me completely satisfied by wrapping up every loose end and giving each character the ending they deserve. It blew me away and made me fall for Bracken’s beautiful descriptions that were pieced together to create a world that I never wanted to escape.

Finally! I finally finished the book! You have no idea how eager I was to finish it. I bought Wayfarer the day it was released and didn't properly read it until the 9th. Yes, I'm that lazy not to mention I get distracted.

But we're not here to talk about me being a lazy mofo, we're here to talk about Wayfarer!

Let's get started!

After the events of Passenger I was wondering what would happen in Wayfarer. Etta and Nicholas are separated and they must find the astrolabe before the timeline is

Alexandra Bracken did not disappoint! The Passenger Duology was a great follow up to TDM, and her writing has definitely grown since then. Wayfarer is the continuation of Passenger, picking up right where it left off. I admire this world that Bracken has crafted and the time travel is unique to this story. I continued to love the characters in Wayfarer, and they grew in depth significantly in this novel. My only problem is that for some reason, Passenger and Wayfarer feel so much slower th
