I thought about it, really thought because a lot has happened and I’ve been through a lot but truthfully I don’t think I would change anything. I am who I am because my experiences have made me who I am and although life is terrible at times (and now) it doesn’t mean it always will be. I’m not saying that I’m stronger or anything for what I’ve been through. I’m just m ...more
THIS IS THE BEST BOOK I'VE READ ALL YEAR
(one of three, at least. I have only said this about three books and it's almost October, so. Take me with a grain of salt, but ONLY ONE grain of salt because I'm TELLING you, this BOOK!)

Def recommend for your next book club read.
Thanks to NetGalley and Flatiron Books for the ARC!

Can you change the future if you know what is coming, or by acting do you solidify events? A story ...more
I love her relationship with Madeleine and with Kenzie (and I honestly did NOT SEE that plot twist coming, holy holy shit!!!!! But it honestly makes sense) and even though I wanted to see more of both of them, everything in the book w ...more
The story was very good and I would highly recommend the book to people who enjoy time-travel fiction.
I received an ARC from NetGalley. The book will be released on February 25, 2020.
