    Read for Popsugar's 2018 Reading Challenge #23: A Book About Time Travel

    Let me start out by saying I don't think this is a bad book, as I think it was pretty clever and unique in a lot of ways, but the plot and characters just didn't appeal to me AT ALL. So I would recommend this to people who like time travel and mystery/thrillers, as the main focus of the book is the characters trying to solve the mystery of their friend's death.

    So, this book sort of reads like All You Need is Kill (or Edge of

    It’s so easy to hate the pretty one, worship the genius, love the rock star, trust the good girl.

    That’s never their only story.

    We are all anthologies. We are each thousands of pages long, filled with fairy tales and poetry, mysteries and tragedy, forgotten stories in the back no one will ever read.


    Neverworld Wake confirmed it for me, Marisha Pessl is one of a kind. No one writes atmospheric, spooky and powerful profound story with a thought-provoking ending and memorable sense of doom like s ...more

    ***SPOILERS HIDDEN***

    Marisha Pessl’s third book is her first offering not only in the young adult genre but also science fiction, and it’s a success. The story is a balanced blend of the solid (a murder-mystery element) and the fantastical (the “Neverworld” sci-fi element, also a mystery).

    Pessl has proven herself a masterful writer who goes above and beyond in her work. Although Neverworld Wake is modest compared to her Special Topics in Calamity Physics and Night Film--it doesn’t contain illus

    This book pulled me out of my reading slump because I had such a good time with this book. Beatrice/ Bee sets out to find answers from her ex-group of friends about her boyfriend Jim , who died suddenly. After a night out they find out they are stuck in time by a mysterious man. While stuck in time the mystery of what happened to Jim begins to unravel while secrets the friends have held close are





    "Friendship, when it runs deep , blinds you to the outside world. It's your exclusive country with sealed borders, unfair distribution of green cards, rich culture no foreigner could understand."


    Science fiction and fantasy elements added danger and tension to the what happens to the group of friends as they are stuck in time. It allowed the characters to engage in action and settings that kept the story interesting and going at a fast pace. The mystery takes twists and turns I was not expecting.  I was anxiously turning the pages and waiting to see what would happen next. The drug use, narcissism and bad young adult decisions were portrayed realistically and made me nostalgic about my high school experience. While you suspend your belief for some elements of the story, the suspense and nice pacing of the book never let up.



    "You are more magical then you know. Take your advice from the elderly and children. None of it as crucial as you think , but that makes it no less vital. Our lives go on. And on. Look for the breadcrumbs."


    The only issues I had with the book had to do with the ending. While the story had unique elements I was disappointed with the direction the author decided to take. This was a solid thriller with great writing so I'm definitely going to check out this author's other books.

    I don't usually write long reviews, but I started to type up everything that was annoying me about this book, so here you go.

    Yeah, it's rambling and whatever. I'm just so disappointed that the author of one of my favorite books (Night Film) wrote this...

    The Plot

    I noticed a lot of people were anticipating this book because they think it's a boarding school supernatural mystery. It's not. The characters did go to a boarding school and that's how they know each other, but nothing takes place ther

    4.5/5stars

    I LOVED THIS. normally i would give a 4.5 star book a 4 star but i want everyone to understand how much i enjoyed this so i'm giving it the full 5 for GR rating.

    This book, I legit couldn't put it down. I didn't even mean to read it all at once and even TRIED to set a stopping point for myself and failed THREE TIMES. I didn't eat or play with my cat or do anything but READ while I was absorbing this. I. Loved. It.
