I'm not even sure what failed: the idea or its execution. Why? Because even after finishing Take Me Tomorrow I have absolutely no idea what was the idea and the point of the book. I swear, the blurb makes more sense.

Sophia — our main character, the daughter of some kind of an influential father — meets a guy (with mossy eyes, it's important, I guess, since Sophia couldn't stop pointing that out) in the woods next to her house. Mr. Moss (it's not his real name, but will do) is surprised that it'

I really enjoyed Shannon A. Thompson's previous books — Minutes Before Sunset and its sequel Seconds Before Sunrise — so when she asked me if I would like to read and review her latest book, I gladly agreed.

Take Me Tomorrow is set in a dystopian world, where there is a war between the State and the people promoting and/or using the clairvoyant drug called Tomo. The protagonist, sixteen-year-old Sophia Gray, and her friends and family are thrown into the mix. Will they all survive to see tom

This was truly a unique read! I love my dystopian worlds and while some can blend together, that definitely wasn’t the case in Take Me Tomorrow. The elements of the storyline were enticing and the mystery of all of the unknowns kept me flying through the pages. The little hints of romance were innocently sweet and what blossomed from it left me smiling. And the ending of the book left me completely dismayed (but in a good way)! I can’t even start to imagine where they can all go f

I was contacted by Shannon A. Thompson and was asked if I would read a couple of her books and to do reviews on them. I'm kind of sad to say that until now I had never heard of her. I'm glad to say that's not the case anymore!


First let me state that I love the cover of this book... Did I say love, because Yes I LOVE it. But to the important stuff... This book cuts right to things, Mrs. Thompson clearly has no time to play around. It goes right into action and introduces us to the kick ass So

why do I have a feeling that the author hates the fragile nature of my brain?

It was supposed to be the most majestic creature but the end result was one without a head and a tail. so like any plant without a root to hold its ground and leaves to serve its purpose, it crumbled the very day it was made

Take Me Tomorrow is a great addition to the current dystopian trend, without being too heavy-handed with any of the popular themes. There is some romance, but as usual Shannon treats it with a light hand - something I find rather refreshing to be honest. The story is balanced well between plot and relationships, and the majority of the characters are well-developed. I was left wondering about a few people by the end of the book, but I'm reasonably confident this is not the last we'll hear of Sop ...more

Wow.Just wow.

This book is so unlike the others. Ughh I can't even begin to describe it in words. I mean, yes, she still keeps a small violence level in it,but at least it does not give you a hard time "swallowing them".

Take me Tomorrow is very well written, the characters - such as the ones from Shannon' previous work - are really well defined, strong (willing to die for the ones they love) and lovable.

This is the third novel I’ve read by Shannon A Thompson and I have to say, each one gets better. It’s fun to see a writer hone her skills. This novel, TAKE ME TOMORROW, is a gritty tale about life after a massacre and the government has restricted just about everything. It’s also about drug use. Tomo is a clairvoyant drug and the government is cracking down on users.

When Sophia Gray bumps into a boy near her home she’s surprised by the presence of a stranger, which is uncommon in the new societ

I continue to be impressed by Shannon's work. What a fun, fast-paced thrill ride through post-apocalyptic America to add to her collection. The story is written in first person through the eyes of a teenage girl named Sophia as she brushes into an underground world she didn't imagine even existed before. Expect vivid images, creative characters (with even more creative motivations), and a complex web of connectivity that's hard to guess. Well done!

I love drugs. Wait, let me rephrase that. I love reading about the drug industry. The people who take them are moderately interesting, but it’s the drugs themselves and the people who sell them that really fascinate me.

Hence my excitement when I heard of Take Me Tomorrow, by Shannon A. Thompson. Drugs + dystopia? Count me in, please and thank you. While Take Me Tomorrow didn’t completely live up to my expectations, there were things I really appreciated, such as the thread of moral ambiguity run

I read a lot and I'd like to think that I know a good book when I see one, Take Me Tomorrow certainly lives up to the expectations that I had for Shannon’s latest release. A complete departure from her Timely Death trilogy, Take Me Tomorrow is the story of Sophia Gray and how her world is turned upside down by the appearance of a dishevelled young man called Noah in the back woods of her property - it seems that everyone knows who he is except her.

Noah brings trouble to what Sophia always though

Take Me Tomorrow by Shannon A. Thompson is a book that unfolded like an action packed movie. It all began when a stranger walks onto Sophia’s property. She did not realize the few minutes she spent speaking to this wayward boy, would be the beginning of the change of her life. Sophia is quite interesting in her own rights. She lives her dad, who travels a lot for his work. The way and reason Sophia’s dad received his job made me tilt my head to side saying “oh

I really enjoyed Shannon A. Thompson’s Timely Death series, so I thought I’d give Take Me Tomorrow a try.

Take Me Tomorrow started out really strong. The female heroine, Sophia , is practicing knife throwing in the forest behind her house when she runs into the mysterious and dangerous Noah. I was immediately intrigued. The story continues to build as Sophia’s friend’s secrets are slowly revealed and Noah’s presence starts to impact her life. The story is set in the stark backdrop of a dystopian

My Review: The book description sounds dire. This book is far darker than the Timely Death series.

Take Me Tomorrow, Shannon A. Thompson's dystopian YA novel draws you in with its complex sociological and political undertones, married perfectly with a group of teenagers who are fighting for freedom. This was my first Shannon A. Thompson novel, and I wasn't disappointed.

Her prose is sharp, clear and when the imagery appears, it is lovely and majestic. It's short, snappy chapters aid its fast paced storyline; having a more episodic feel to it rather than defined chapters, but that's OK. I found
