Threadwalkers was the YA novel that I am super pleased to have read since after reading some recent novels in the YA group that I hadn’t enjoyed much, this storyline was creepy with some intriguing characters. When her father dies in an accident, his daughter Miranda gets this gift which completely transforms her life. No-one can rem

A brilliant debut novel by Joanna Volavka, with good pacing and an excellent story. I’m not usually a massive YA reader but I’m glad I made the exception for this. The time travel elements are ingenious and was glad to see a strong female protagonist with good friends not side tracked by a romantic subplot. A must read for any sci-fi fans

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher for review.

Threadwalks by Joanna Volavka is an immensely fun and engaging read. She creates a world that is immediately easy to get lost in, and has you wanting to know more with every sentence that goes by.

As you step into the world of Threadwalkers, you are greeted with stunning descriptions of Autumn and you might just find yourself ready to head to the nearest corn maze. You meet some lovely characters, with adorable traditions and before you

The only reason it took me three days to read this book is because I had to adult.

Threadwalkers is a refreshing addition to the YA world. There are hints of A Wrinkle in Time, but it's definitely not a retelling. The plot is clever and well thought out, and the characters are relatable. It's a highly enjoyable sci-fi read, and I highly recommend it!

Miranda has been depressed for the last six months since her father died, the one person who really got her and understood the voices she hears. But today is her 16th birthday and she is determined to try and have a good time with her two best friends. But after a night of surprises, fear and disappointment, Miranda heads home. Her mom has a gift for her, something from her father and Miranda unwraps a wooden spool with gorgeous gold thread on it- thread that her mother can't see. S

This book has time travel. It has people who want to use that for their own personal gain. Those people are called Editors and they are editing Miranda’s life after her dad dies from a plane crash. Miranda doesn’t know why. But these people want something her dad knows! At every turn, something new happens that wasn’t there before and she has nowhere to go for help until she meets the Tailor. He helps her with only pieces of information, just enough but not enough! And Miranda is frustrated. She ...more

Unexpectedly for me, because Young Adult science fiction isn't one of my preferred genres, I absolutely loved reading Threadwalkers! I devoured the whole book pretty much in one sitting, eagerly turning the pages to find out what would happen next. Miranda is a great, realistic protagonist. Feisty and brave, but not unbelievably invincible and I found myself able to empathise with her grief over her parent's death and her confusion at the new

Must read!

Thoroughly enjoyed this journey with Miranda. Definitely looking forward to more books by this author. I'm so glad this book was recommended to me.

Can I just say wow.. I think we need a series in this book. How it ended and plus the fact that we could go on. So many things to think about and do. Miranda starts off like any other girl turning 16. She can't wait to go do this big thing her two best friends did when they turned 16.

Miranda starts her night off hearing voices again that no one else can hear. Her father told her to never mention it to anyone including her mother. After awhile both of them never brought it up again.
But when her f

In my limited experience, books concerning time travel make my head hurt.  The implications of even the most minute alteration to a time line; the paradoxes, well, you get the idea.  

For the most part, this book was handled very well.  Very firmly in the Young Adult realm, the characters are engaging and well described.  

Towards the end, I did find myself feeling a little confused about precisely what was going on, and the manner of the ending left me feeling as though there ought to be more to

A few months or so after the death of her father Miranda’s life starts to change. Her life is being edited. No one at school knows who she is. Her name is not on the roll call anymore and none of her teachers know who she is either. Her best friends, Jae and Abby have no clue who Miranda is.

Things at home are being to change as well. Her whole life is falling apart and she has no clue what is going on. When all else fails what do you do? Well you turn to the internet, right? After a little inte

3.5 stars.
This is one of the most gripping books I’ve read in a long time.
Though this book started off with a couple of chapters that could have used some more work (dialogue that didn’t quite flow, etc), it quickly became un-put-down-able. I seriously could not stop reading this. It’s nonstop conflict and nonstop “how will she get out of this one?”

Joanna takes the reader on an adventure that to the truly imaginative is perfectly plausible. I highly recommend this book.

First of all, I would like to thank the author, Joanna Volavka, for sending me a copy of this book!

This book started off a little bit slow, but it is definitely worth it to keep reading. Once the pace started picking up, I was completely sucked in.

I really like the way Miranda was written. Although the author wrote a realistic account of how a 16-year-old might react to such complex and scary situations, she didn't turn

Threadwalkers is a YA Sci-Fi novel that follows a teenage girl whose life literally changes before her eyes and her quest to set things right without getting killed or lost in time forever. Volavka sets up a completely new and complex time traveling world that's compelling without being confusing, and a main character who the reader can relate to and root for from page one. Fans of A Wrinkle In Time and Doctor Who should definitely pick this one up. (I read it in a day- could not put it down) ...more
