Hey! This is Rachel from!
The Hourglass Door by Lisa Mangum
The Hourglass Door is another book centered around the paranormal, like most "teen" books these days, and normally I wouldn't have picked it up, but something about it made me want to read it (probably the cover, isn't it ironic that publishing companies want you to judge a book by its cover, but everydoby else doesn't?). It's about a girl who meets a "foreign exchange student" from italy, she knows she should stay away, but something draws her to him (where have we read this plot before?). Honestly, this book is a little repetitive, it's the basic romance that hundreds of other books have done in the past few years, except the main characters are both human, technically. Most of the paranormal books have human+vampire/Werewolf/ghost and a million other strange pairings. I like that in this book the paranormal part lies not in the characters (mostly), but in a sort of "technology", a time machine. It's different, I mean the time machines been done a million times before too, but not quite in this way. I don't want to give too much away, so you'll just have to go read it yourself (and you might get the chance to win a copy, when I hit 50 followers there will be a small giveaway on my blog).
I honestly loved this book, and I'll definately be getting the other two in this series, and you might see a review of them on my own blog. It's a fun, interesting book that I couldn't put down.
I want to say thank you to makeupaddict22 for giving me the opportunity to write a guest post for her. :) And I would really love it if you would all go check out my blog and follow if you like it.
