Before Tomorrow by Pintip Dunn is a prequel novella to the young adult science fiction fantasy Forget Tomorrow series. This novella is told from Logan's point of view and shows a closer look at what will happen in the first book of the series. It is of course best to read the whole series as this does leave off at a cliffhanger to what will happen in the later books.

Set in a world in which everyone will receive a vision of their future self when they turn seventeen it is Logan Russell's turn to

Whatever you demons, I'll protect you. Because we're meant to be together. I've known that from the beginning, even before I got my further memory.

This short book was so cute! I can't wait to read the next one!

It was time for this dragonfly to find a place to land

4.5/5 stars!

I am so happy I got to read this novella in advance! Before Tomorrow is a peek of Forget Tomorrow seen through Logan's eyes. Callie gets all the airtime in FT, but here, we get to see what's going on in the head of our favorite hunky swimmer and love interest, Logan. If I hadn't fallen in love with him in FT, he would have had me in Before Tomorrow. I loved learning his thoughts and feelings for Callie, and getting some revelations of what was happening behind the scenes with other characters, w ...more

This was a really sweet addition to book one in the series. Being able to see in Logan's mind and hear some of his reasonings is enthralling. Do you need to read it to get the story? Not at all, but is it totally worth it? I think so. ...more

This was a great intro to the series. Despite the length, you quickly are able to fall into the world created and to understand what the characters are going through, which is excellent story telling and writing.

This book and talking with the author today at the book signing at our store has whet my appetite for the rest of the books in the series! She said that the others books in the series are even better than this one, so I'm excited to read them.

I loved being plopped into the mind of Logan Russell, both in the scenes I've read in Forget Tomorrow and those that demonstrate a whole new side of him, his insecurities, and nuances in his relationship with his parents, his coach, and the leader of the resistance, Melie. Some other reviews I've read suggested it was just FT in a different POV, but I disagree. I felt like I saw a different side of Logan through his interactions with other characters, and am now even more excited to read the las ...more
Copy received through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Read my interview with Pintip Dunn here.

Before Tomorrow, or as everyone is referring to it, Logan's novella is the prefect addition to this series. Logan is still my most favorite character of them all, and exploring his train of thought was a joy. We get a glimpse of new characters, of things behind the scenes of the first book, and they're extremely entertaining.
Fans of the series would love it. Don't skip out on it, you'll regret

This is the start or prequel to a series. Aged 17 every young person goes to collect a 'memory' sent somehow by their future self. This destroys hopes as a girl who wanted to be a top performer just gets a memory of being a mother so she drops her training - what an idiot. No reason she could not do both or be a performer before a mother. I did not see this as realistic (ironic laugh) but our protagonist is a lad who wants to be a swim champion. He envisions getting his gold.

The novella is written from Logan's POV. It starts from the moment that he turns seventeen and his future memory is given to him. In the memory, he realizes he will be a gold star swimmer but also he sees Callie in his future, the girl he hasn't spoken to in six years.

Logan also has to deal with his feelings about his future memory and his parents learning about it. He believes his father wouldn't have been happy if the memory wasn't a successful one.

Coming into this as a reader who has no knowledge of the world, I found this novella intriguing, but not quite satisfying.

We meet Logan on his 17th birthday, the day when everyone receives their future memory. His is decidedly good, showing him winning a swim race, but the inclusion of Callie in that vision - a friend who he's long let slip, but has never quite left his mind - fills him with doubt. They haven't spoken for years, but seeing her fills him with hope. What does it mean? Callie's bir

As an avid reader I love novellas they are different glimpses at beloved stories and characters. I hope Mrs. Dunn continues to give us novellas because they are fun and an excellent way of keeping the most starved fan satisfied until we get the last course! And then I hope we get a desert novella!
4.5 This is totally worth the read ESPECIALLY if you haven’t read the first in a while!

Got this as part of the preorder for Remember Yesterday & loved it! Logan is adorable. I could read the entire first book in his perspective & be completely happy. Now to start Remember Yesterday.
Mar 24, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This was a novella that gave us Logan's point of view and I loved seeing things from his perspective. It was fun to learn more about Logan and his family dynamics or lack there of. His dad sounds like a real jerk and his mom is wonderful but should learn to stand up to his dad in Logan's defense. I love he dropped his future to be with the girl of his dreams. Cannot wait to start Remember Yesterday. ...more

When Logan receives his future memory he's surprised by the impact of the short fragment he's just seen. He will achieve his biggest dream, becoming a gold-star swimmer, but that isn't the part that makes him happy. It's watching the girl in his vision that matters the most. It's Callie, who's always been in his heart. Unfortunately Logan hasn't spoken to her in years. He never stopped noticing her though and maybe his future is showing him it's time to start talking to her again. She was his be ...more

As expected, I devoured this novella because Logan’s point of view does not disappoint! I might be somewhat biased because I’m so in love with this series but this little glimpse into Logan was awesome. He is even sweeter and more amazing than I originally thought. Anyone who has read and liked the other 2 books must not miss this one… and even if you are new to the series, this might be a good place to start.

I received an eARC copy from the publisher via Net Galley, in exchange with an honest review.

The thing about Novellas is that, if they are well written, they will leave you craving for "at least one more page".

Going into Before Tomorrow, I knew that it was a novella. However, I was still really disappointed when I finished the book. I was craving for more.

Seeing some of the events from Logan's point of view added a lot to the story. To me, this novella makes the 1st book even better.

I have officially finished Pintip Dunn’s trilogy with this prequel that I was excited to read. It is only 80 pages long, so you can imagine it is a short read. I think it would be great for it to be published as an extra part to the first book! As it is such a short book, I’ll write a shorter review than I usually do.

I had read the main trilogy in French, but as this prequel hasn’t been published in France, I had to read it in its original version. It was a bit weird to see the names of the inst

This is a short prequel to a series I have not read, but I will say that it got me curious enough that I will probably end up reading the rest of the Forget Tomorrow series. The story is very fast paced and suspenseful. The characters are well developed, especially for such a short story. I got to know them pretty well, and found myself rooting for them at the end.

Before Tomorrow could be read before or after reading Forget Tomorrow. I thought it was great to learn the Logan's perspective and motivations as a balance to Callie's. We also learn what he sacrifices to help Callie. A good addition to the series. ...more

Neat, futuristic surprises and twists. Definitely made me want to know more about Logan and Callie.
Short story about Logan before & during the first book of this series.
It was ok and really fast to read but it didn't add much to the plot that I already knew.

Pintip was kind enough to send me a PDF copy for review! Thank you so much! I have reviews for Forget Tomorrow and Remember Yesterday if you click on those names. They both directly relate to the novella, so it might help a bit if you read those first.

I am obsessed with the Forget Tomorrow Trilogy because both books have so far been absolutely amazing and Pintip is an awesome author, so when I heard that there would be a novella from Logan's POV, I was on that!

Usually I'm not into novellas or prequels, but this one, I just had to have it and read it. I loved Logan in Forget Tomorrow and
