TBR Thursday [18]

Posted June 2, 2016 by Kim in TBR Thursday / 6 Comments

Happy Thursday! You know what that means… time for a new TBR Thursday!

My feature was totally influenced by Teresa @ Readers Live a Thousand Lives and her On My Shelf posts. I love love love the idea of spotlighting a title from my shelf (or, you know, my eReader) and seeing what you think about it. Have you read it? Should I read it or put it back on the shelf? Sometimes it seems like everyone is reading the same books at the same time and older titles have a way of just fading from the radar. I love this way of featuring an older title and, of course, getting a chance to talk about it with other bloggers and readers. And I want to force myself to do it regularly, hence the TBR Thursday title.

If you’d like to join in on the fun, I’ve created a banner you can use – or you can always make your own! (Right click and save as to grab the image for yourself.) Share your links in the comments and I’ll swing by and visit!


Now, let’s talk about this week’s pick, shall we?


TBR Thursday [18]Timepiece by Myra McEntire
Series: Hourglass #2
Genres: Young Adult, Paranormal, Romance
Publication date: June 12, 2012
Publisher: Egmont USA
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking...

Kaleb Ballard was never supposed to be able to see ripples - cracks in time. Are his powers expanding, or is something very wrong? Before he can find out, Jonathan landers, the man who tried to murder is father, reappears. Why is he back, and what, or whom, does he want?

In the wake of Landers' return, the Hourglass organization is given an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the people who might carry the time gene, or time will be altered - with devastating results for the people Kaleb loves most.

Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Landers. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough...

I’ve had this book on my eReader forever. It’s been over two and a half years now since I read Hourglass, and while I remember loving it – and giving it five stars – I remember very little about it. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’d have to reread it to get my head back in the series if I decide to continue with it. I honestly forgot all about this book/series until I was looking at my unfinished series to try to figure out which ones are worth finishing. Do you think this is one?

Also interesting? You can’t purchase this book from Amazon right now. Weird. You can buy from third-party sellers, but no luck on Kindle or from Amazon directly.

  1. OMG I remember seeing Hourglass absolutely ages ago and added it to my to-read shelf on Goodreads, but never got around to getting a copy and reading it. Glad to know it’s good though! Happy reading 😀
