After Eden (After Eden, #1)After Eden by Helen Douglas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I’m surprised this book has such mixed reviews; I really enjoyed it! It was a quick, easy read and I found it entertaining, plus I absolutely love books with a time travel premise.

It was refreshing to see the relationship between Eden and Ryan unfold naturally – no insta-love, no love triangle, no girl falling for a guy who acts like a jerk half of the time. The pacing of the story and the gradual unveiling of Ryan’s secret was just right. The ending was exciting and satisfying, and I’m very curious to see what the future holds for this series.

I’d definitely recommend After Eden if you’re looking for a fun YA book about time travel. Another fantastic book I’d recommend if you enjoy this genre is All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill, which is darker than After Eden, but riveting!

All Our Yesterdays (All Our Yesterdays #1)All Our Yesterdays by Cristin Terrill

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I haven’t read a time travel book in quite a while, and this novel reminded me how much I love that theme. It must be challenging to write a story with a time travel component; it would be difficult to avoid adding plot holes and inconsistencies. I think Cristin Terrill did an amazing job!

The book starts out perfectly: it’s like watching someone paint a picture while the setting, characters, and plot are colored in piece by piece. As the author drops little hints and clues, you feel so proud of yourself for figuring out another part of the puzzle.

It’s hard to say much more specifically about the story without giving anything away, but I can say that I really enjoyed everything about All Our Yesterdays, and I absolutely recommend it for any fan of YA sci-fi or time travel fiction. The listing on Goodreads says “All Our Yesterdays #1″ which implies there will be a #2… I wouldn’t say the ending leaves itself open to a sequel, but I’ll definitely give it a read if there is!
