Pintip Dunn gave us the perfect conclusion to the breathtaking series. Seize Today provides all the answers while presenting an interesting and unexpected plot. It was a joy to read, it was really intriguing, and I was unable to put it down. Mrs. Dunn’s writing style is consistent, and as always, her chara

This book is everything!!! Ok it's true that I'm rating purely on my emotions and how I'm feeling right now at the end of this tale but you know what, it just made me feel so much it deserves it! I will be critical in a second but first we gush about being able to see these people placed in these impossible situations and fight through them. They are strong and stupid and impulsive and courageous just they deserve all the stars as well.

I'd like to thank NetGalley and Entangled Teen for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

I'll be honest. The science part of this sci-fi was mostly lost on me. While I find the whole concept fascinating, it's pretty hard for me to actually follow it (yes, I stay away from the exact sciences, my brain can't deal with them). So there were several explanations and theories that just flew over my head. But that's okay.

In this final book in the Forget Tomorrow series, Pintip Dunn ups her game. Each scene had me sitting at the edge of my seat waiting to see what she had instore for her characters. I really loved Olivia. She hasn’t had it easy growing up. But even after a troubled childhood, she cares so deeply for others and wants so much to find a place where she belongs.

"Seize Today" was a great finale to a fantastic YA sci-fi/romance series. This third book wraps up all the plot lines we've been exposed to in the first two books as well as provides a new romantic couple for us to enjoy (but this is a much smaller part of this book). Here, we follow Olivia Dresden, the chairwoman's daughter, as she seeks to save the world she knows and loves as well as to find her own way. Being a precognitive and the daughter of a woman who has little to no interest in her, Ol ...more

This is a good ending to the series! Although, I think Mrs. Dunn left enough material to consider a spinoff. Well, a girl can only hope.

Seize Today brings back the characters from prior books, Callie and Logan, Jessica and Tanner and it provides us with a new main couple: Olivia and Ryder.

This time the story revolves around Olivia Dresden, the world’s only true precognitive and picks up about 6 months after the end of Remember Yesterday.

I feel like this series devolved quite a bit. I really liked the first book, and then the second was okay, but this one felt kind of lazy to me. Callie was an interesting character, which made up for Logan’s flatness. Jessa and Tanner were both better characters, but their storyline didn’t work as well for me. Olivia and Ryder don’t do it for me.
Perhaps it’s because their character types are usually my favorite in stories. The shadow, made a little crazy by her abilities, and the wounded beau w

Olivia can see future pathways of people's choice. Unfortunately, this doesn't help her be any less socially awkward. She wants more than anything to be loved.

Review in Italian:

At last this beautiful trilogy came to its conclusion, and it couldn't have been any better.
I did not know what to expect from the books of this trilogy before reading them because the narrators always change and so the plot reflects the thoughts of the new characters. I started the first book and I fell in love with Logan and Callie and the plot in general with these future memories transferred from people to the their younger selves to know where they will go

Perfect end to the Forget Tomorrow trilogy. Pintip Dunn took the story places that I would've never seen coming, but having just re-read Forget Tomorrow and Remember Yesterday, I know that it was set up in the previous books. The chemistry between Olivia and Ryder was palpable, and I loved seeing the other characters who we've grown to know, like Callie, Logan, Jessa, and Tanner. And seriously, Tanner and what he says to Olivia at one point made me love him even more than I did in Remember Yeste ...more

Seize Today is the perfect ending to the Forget Tomorrow series. Although it saddens me that the Trilogy is now over, I am perfectly content and happy with how everything ended. I would really appreciate a 3.5 novella; it would be a really interesting follow up short story to read.

Things I am obsessed with:

The Title of each book in the series. The 1st book is Forget Tomorrow, the 2nd is Remember Yesterday, and the final book is Seize Today. The titles weren't only a catchy, smart way to name the books in this seri

In Pintip Dunn's Forget Tomorrow, memories are sent back in time to shape each person's future. After Callie Stone receives a memory that shows her killing her sister, she goes on a mission to discover not only why she would commit such a horrible act, but to stop an even worse crime from happening. Remember Yesterday follows Callie's sister Jessa ten years later in her determination to reunite her family and resolve some of the complications that occurred in the earlier book.

I have loved this series from the beginning, and this was a perfect ending. I liked that we had a change in narrator, in keeping with the first 2 books.

Seize Today (Forget Tomorrow #3) by Pintip Dunn
Publication Date: October 3, 2017
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Seventeen-year-old Olivia Dresden is a precognitive. Since different versions of people’s futures flicker before her eyes, she doesn’t have to believe in human decency. She can see the way for everyone to be their best self-if only they would make the right decisions. No one is more conflicted than her mother, and Olivia can only watch as Chairwoman Dresden chooses the dark, destructive course every time. Yet Olivia remains fiercely loyal to the woman her mother could be. But when the chairwoman captures Ryder Russell, the striking and strong-willed boy from the rebel Underground, Olivia sees a vision of her own imminent death…at Ryder’s hand. Despite her bleak fate, she rescues Ryder and flees with him, drawing her mother’s fury and sparking a romance as doomed as Olivia herself. As the full extent of Chairwoman Dresden’s gruesome plan is revealed, Olivia must find the courage to live in the present-and stop her mother before she destroys the world.
My Review
Definitely my favorite book out of the three, the first book was just okay to me, and the second book, I dnf the book, for some reason I just couldn't get into it. I am not sure why because I really loved the main characters from that book in this book, that I just finished. I really loved Olivia and Ryder both first as friends and then romantically. I really felt bad for her not having a loving relationship with her mother and not knowing whom her father was. I don't want to say much about Olivia's mother this way I don't give out spoilers, but I do have to say she's doing it for what she believes is the right reasons. Even if us the readers don't agree with what her reasons are. I really loved how this book ended and what happened with each pairings of the other two books. I thought the Author did right for each of these main characters. So I think I might go back sometime down the road to try to finish book 2, since I didn't last time, and hopefully I will be able to finish it then. I am so glad I was chosen to read and review this book for the book blog, it was a very fun and interesting read and a great finish to the Series. And I just have to say how much I loved Ryder, even though he does have trust issues, but he does have reasons to feel the way he does. And he was so cute most of the time with Olivia, even though he did have his moments of not trusting her. But if Olivia would have told him certain things, he wouldn't have had no reason to have those trust issues. So both parties were at fault. I would definitely recommend for people to read this series, because it's definitely interesting. Two other reasons you should read this is because of the two excerpts, I left below, especially the second excerpt, which is just too freaking cute!!!!
Excerpt 1:
Eleven years earlier… I pull the lever of the cage, switching the tunnel onto a different track, trying to confuse the mice. I know exactly how the future will play out, of course. I know which mice will fall down the trap and which ones will smack into the see-through glass wall. I know which mice will get hopelessly lost. I even know which ones will run the maze correctly on the very first try. I like watching them anyway. They wriggle over one another like worms, and their whiskers twitch when they're at a corner between two paths. But what I like most is how they come to me when I call. Picking up a mouse, I run my fingers over its soft fur and warm body. It looks at me with unblinking pink eyes, and I think it could be my friend. Of course, I can see which mice will come, so I know which ones to call. Rodents are predictable like that. Humans, not so much. They have too many wants, too many feelings. I don't see any one future for people. Rather, I see them all—every single pathway their futures might take, flickering before my eyes. So I have to guess which of my human classmates will want to play with me. Most of the time, I guess wrong. "Are you bothering my mice again?" a little boy's voice says. "Fates, Livvy. How many times do I have to tell you? Leave them alone!" Startled, I let go of the mouse and look up at Tanner Callahan, the other six-year-old who hangs around the scientists' labs. I'm here because my mom's the head of the Future Memory Agency, or FuMA, and he's here…I guess ’cause he has nowhere else to be. He's got black hair that pokes up in the back, and his skin sticks too closely to his bones. I thought this meant he wasn't eating enough, but MK, our child-minder, said that grief over his parents' deaths had burrowed holes through his resources. This makes me think of the mice digging through the straw, and my chest aches. I flash forward to his futures. He still has hundreds of branches remaining, but in most of them, one thing is the same: he will be sad and lonely until he kisses our classmate Jessa ten years in the future. I don't know why kissing should change anything. But I do know how it feels to be lonely and sad. We don't have to be like this. I could be his friend. I just have to figure out the right thing to say. "Jessa and I are going to rule the world one day." It can't hurt to bring up the girl he smushes lips with. Maybe if he thinks she and I are friends, he'll like me, too. "You know Jessa, right? The girl with the teardrop eyes? She's my best friend." Not true. I think Jessa only talks to me because she’s nice. But he doesn't have to know that. "Oh yeah? Well someday, I'm going to be the inventor of future memory," he shoots back. "And then we'll see who's more important." I bite my lip. That wasn't what I meant. I wasn't trying to brag or compare or compete. The futures containing our friendship begin to fall away, one by one. I guessed wrong once again.
Seize Today Pintip Dunn
Excerpt 2 "Are you sifting through my possible pathways?" he asks, his voice husky. I freeze. But if I'm a block of ice, his fingers do their job, tracing my lips again and again until I melt. "How…how do you know?" "Your eyes," he says. "They dilate when you're reaching into the future. I'm starting to learn when you're not here." I blink. Nobody's ever told me that before. "You…noticed?" I ask. "I notice everything about you," he says easily. "So, tell me. What did you see in our possible futures?" His voice is low and liquid, and it reaches inside me and caresses parts I didn't know existed. "What did I do? More importantly, what did you like?" Heat floods my face. "What, exactly, are we talking about?" "I don't know." His eyes gleam wickedly. "What do you think we're talking about?" "Future pathways," I snap. If I have to electro-whip my attention back on track, I'll do it, damn the Fates. "I see everything from me slapping you to…" I trail off, and my cheeks flame even hotter. Oh my. I can't possibly put into words the images flying through my head like a hailstorm. "Now I'm really intrigued." He moves his hand to my hair, tugging slightly. I feel the tension all the way to my toes. "Are you really not going to tell me? Because, you know, then I'll have to guess." "I'm not going to tell you," I whisper. His lips curve in a mischievous grin that makes me want to tuck him in my pocket and keep him forever. And then, while I'm still reeling from his cuteness, he leans in. I'm not ready. My mouth is partway open, and I'm in the middle of a breath. He kisses me anyway. I shut my mouth in a hurry. Lips, so soft. His back and shoulders, so hard. Holy Fates, that was his tongue. His tongue, slipping between my teeth. Sparks. So many sparks, igniting in the air around us. "How's this?" he whispers against my mouth. "Did you see this in our future?" I nod helplessly. He moves closer, scooping me up and shifting me on the mattress so that he can lie next to me. Our foreheads touch; so do our knees. "And this? Was this in some of our pathways?" I nod again, but that doesn't seem to satisfy him anymore. His eyes intent on mine, he catches my lower lip between his teeth. "Do you like it?" Do I like it? What kind of question is that? I've tasted every emotion in our world. I know the sorrow a mother feels when she clasps her deceased baby to her chest. I know the pride of a gold-star athlete when he stands on a podium and accepts North Amerie's highest honor. I know the rage that silences the heart of a murderer as he cuts short another's life. I even know kisses—hot, frenzied, passionate, fumbling, sweet, aching, innocent kisses. I've seen them all in other people’s futures, thousands of kisses, millions of kisses, as varied as the pathways themselves. And yet…and yet…I've felt nothing like kissing Ryder. Even the vision of this moment itself. So, yeah, I like it. It scares me how much I like it.
