Hey everyone, I hope you are all having a great day. I am in the midst of exams, and while taking a break from studying, I was going through my E reader, looking to see if I had any books that I had read and hadn't reviewed. And I found Hourglass by Myra McEntire, which I don't understand how I forgot about it because I loved this book! So onto the review!

Goodreads Summary

One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back. So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.
Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

First off, the number one thing I loved in this book was Emerson, The main character. She is witty, and sarcastic, and incredible and now absolutely on my list of bad ass heroines. What I loved most about her was that she was very selfless and acknowledged that her ability was there and not only affected her, but those around her. She wanted nothing more than to be normal, but not just for her, but because it would make the lives of those whom she was close to better.

ALso the plot was incredible. I loved how all the time travel rules came into plan and the way that the author worked around them. ALso, she referenced Doctor Who, and that is the way to my heart. But I loved reading about the complications and all about the things the Hourglass was capable of. It was so intriguing and I loved it. Also, it was paced well, and that for me made the book.

Also Micheal was incredible. The relationship that he had with Emerson was well developed and not insta-love, which was awesome. Their relationship made me squeal and just the end of the book broke my heart.

Overall, I give this book 5/5 stars because I loved it so much. Seriously, if your into time travel and all that kinda stuff, you need to read this book. :)
