I was excited to learn about the Kindle First program through Amazon which I received this eBook through, because it is a really cool idea. Give a try if you haven’t yet.

Timebound was an OK read for me. I was immediately drawn to the promise of time travel and the lure of a love story (and, yes, the gorgeous cover!). However, in actuality they didn’t wow me. The time travel aspect was a bit hard for me to follow and there were parts that just didn’t feel/flow right. If I had felt more ambitious, I would have liked to have gone back and picked it apart to make sure it was all “correct”, but alas, I’m a bit short on time at the moment.

 The love story aspect… I don’t know, it wasn’t my favorite either. The relationship developed too quickly and I was rooting for the wrong team apparently…blurgh. I’m not attracted at all to the guy our character is crazy for. But it wasn’t a bad read. The story held my attention and it certainly was unique. So, again, it was ok…I will most likely read the next one just to see how things play out, but it won’t be a high priority read.

 

In the Mail…

As part of the books n blogger’s swap hosted by the Chaotic Goddess, my, wonderful partner Kirsten from The Book Monsters sent me these 3 wonderful books!

 Splintered (Splintered, #1)  The Girl of Fire and Thorns (Fire and Thorns, #1)  Poison Princess (The Arcana Chronicles, #1)

I am sooo excited to read them, you have no idea! I’ve seen good things around the blogosphere 🙂

I also received this ARC through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewer program:

One Realm Beyond (Realm Walkers)
