Twist (Loop #2)
I have basically told everyone and anyone that they needed to read Karen Akin's debut Loop. I seriously loved that book so much. So when I saw it was a duology I knew I needed to read Twist. I loved that Bree and Finn's story wasn't done yet, that there were still ends that needed to be tied up. I was thrilled I would be able to immerse myself in their world again and immerse I did. Twist...LOVED it!

Holy crap! This book! No wait, BOTH Loop and Twist! I dare somebody, anybody, try to top this twisty-turney, loopidy-loop, timey-wimey story of AWESOME!
So. So. So. GOOD!
(And no! Don't let the description fool you into thinking this particular installment has anything to do with a love triangle! It doesn't!)
A full duology (yes, this is the final book in a duology) review to come!
TWIST continues one from the drama that is the consequences of time travel and changing a specific point in time. Bree Bennis has finally got her life under control even her shifts. Her mum is out of a ...more

Twist is the final installment in the Loop Duology and the perfect title for this book. Bree Bennis, our heroine with the time traveling gene, truly believes that things are looking up. After-all, her mother is no longer in a coma, her relati ...more

They are a pair - Loop & Twist .... Really they are because now that I have read both, things start to make better sense. Of course the cover wasn't my favorite of the lot but I didn't really care for it much seeing as we got a great story in the proceeding pages. Needless to say that this duology won me over. 'Loop' presented the puzzle & 'Twist' its pieces & together they make a complete and quite possibly a wibbly ...more

First Line(s): There are forty-seven rules every Shifter must obey. I'd broken all but two of them.
Twist by Karen Akins is the sequel to last year's Loop (my review) and the conclusion of the duology started in that book. Twist was a book that I was really excited to read beause I loved Loop so very much and I was really lookin...more
It is so well written that very shortly you will know what is going on. Well thats a lie, but you won’t have missed out by ...more
I was a little disappointed in Twist, but it wasn't a bad sequel. Twist didn't have that special, fun feel to it that Loop had. I loved that book! Finn wasn't as present in the sequel, which was probably a big reason why I didn't get as into reading this book. It felt like there was something missing to the story when Finn wasn't there.
The parts that made me still like reading Twist were things I liked about the series as a whol ...more

Bree must track down the instant the time line started to change. The point shifter interference started creating the ripples that are destroying her world but by doing that she might forever loose her true love.
Akins creates a highly complex, mind bending experience. Just when you thought you knew where this plot was heading you are totally taken by surprised. Don't get me wrong her twists total ...more
First off, Karen Akins, you are bloody brilliant! I would kiss that brain of yours right now! Okay! That sounded a little creepy. Sorry.
I don't have words to describe how good this book is. SO FREAKING GOOD!
I will admit that a few chapters in, I was confused for a while as to what exactly was happening. But that was just a few paragraphs. Then the book got better and better and better. It was so epic! EPIC!
Bree, you beautiful lady! She is hands down o ...more
This was the worst ending to a duology but I mean having read Allegiant and Mockingjay I honestly don't know why I'm so surprised. (view spoiler)[ the first one wasn't that amazing either. (hide spoiler)]
You know, it might be me but I was so confused by that ending. What was that!? I'm not talking about the plot part but like the actual dialogue and the doubles and futures and Wyck and future her and... what the hell happened
I think that the romance was really not that serious for ...more
It was none stop from the beginning with all the time loops, and twists- a perfect Summer read (anytime really, it was really was alot of fun!)
It did lend itself to "but wait, if that changes in this timeline, does it affect X?" questions rolling around in my head..but still so much fun and so tightly written. It was a blast! I almost wish there were more adventures, but with some reservations, cause this was a great ending.

But when she leans over one day to smooch said boyfriend, her lips meet those of her arch-nemesis Wyck instead. The timeline has been al ...more
Do you remember the first time you saw Inception or a movie like it? Do you remember trying to keep up with all the science, all the twisting timelines and revelations, only to give up and enjoy the ride? And then when it was over, you staggered out of the dark theater and squinted up at the sky trying to remember what your name was and what year it was, because your brain was still back in your seat, trying to figure out what the he ...more

I received a copy of this book from the publishers in exchange for an honest review. This didn't influence my opinion in any way.
I loved Twist so much! It was just as entertaining and fast paced as Loop, and oh gosh, the titles for this two-part series are simply perfection. The pacing is blisteringly fast, and the story twists, turns and loops on a hairs breath and keeps you on your toes from beginning to end - it’s fabulous!
Bree finally has a little normality and stability in her life after th ...more
Twist, by Karen Akins, is the second book in the Loop duology. I didn’t love Loop. Despite loving the premise and ideas, it fell short in the execution, and some of same the issues repeated in book 2. The plot wasn’t as focused as it might have been, Bree had way too much to figure out with so few clues, and you had to be exceptionally patient to get to the answers. In the story, Bree has been tasked with travelling through time to find travellers who are making changes to the timelin ...more
Karen has been many things in her life: an archery instructor, drummer for the shortest-lived garage band in history, and a shockingly bad tic-tac-toe player.
