The Psychology of Time Travel – Kate Mascarenhas [BOOK REVIEW]

The Psychology of Time Travel Kate Mascarenhas book review books blog diary of difference diaryofdifference goodreads netgalley arc novel publisher crooked lane books penguin uk england amazon bookblog reading

★★★

I love the idea of time travelling and I love the idea of time travelling books. That is the main reason why I chose to read this ARC copy. The synopsis sounded intriguing, and the cover was gorgeous. I don’t have much experience reading time travelling books. I still believe the synopsis is intriguing and the cover is gorgeous, but I am not satisfied with the feelings this book left me, after I read the last chapter.

The story begins when four ladies in the early 1960s work together and build the first time travel machine. And they are surrounded by curious people and media, and one of them has a breakdown and is expelled from the project, as she is a risk to herself and others. But they don’t just exclude her from their project, but from their whole lives, and time travelling altogether.

”Sometimes we want proximity and a crowd gives us the excuse.”

And many years after, when time travelling is something everyone knows about, secrets start to be revealed, little by little, and a murder happens without explanation. A few young women, completely unrelated and with different missions will try to get their way into the whole time-travel business, and try to figure the answers to their questions.

In The Psychology of Time Travel, one is certain – you will flow through time and places like never before. One chapter it’s 1967, and the next one, it’s 2015. You will meet a lady and her young self, her old self, and her current self, all at one place, talking to each other, or simultaneously performing a dancing act. You will get to see a world very well created, a complex structure of how time travel might work, and details that you wouldn’t thought of checking twice.

I couldn’t connect to any character. Maybe there were too many. The chapters were very short, and they travelled through years so quickly, that I couldn’t catch up. Catching up with the plot of a book, and figuring out what is going on while being presented things so fast is very frustrating. It’s like watching a movie in a foreign language, the subtitles being your only way of gathering information, and they disappear instantly, without you having a chance to understand.

The romance in this book was another thing that bothered me. While we get a lot of romantic relationships going around, one particularly threw me off my feet. A love story where one girl is in love with another. This is the completely realistic part. But the unrealistic one was that one girl lives in the present, and the other is a time-traveller in the past – so even though they are currently (technically) the same age, in reality one is in the mid 20s, and the other in the mid 80s. I couldn’t process this, or agree with it.

”You couldn’t get involved with someone who spent most of their life in a different time period from you.”

I am sure I would have loved the characters, have I had more chances to get to know them. They showed signs of bravery, and goals and hopes for a better tomorrow, with a spark unlike any others. But it all lasted so short, before we switched to another character, and so on.

Even though this one didn’t work for me – I still encourage you to give it a go, if you are a fan of time travel. The idea of time travelling is very well done, and deserves to be discussed.

A huge thank you to NetGalley and Crooked Lane Books, for providing me an ARC copy of The Psychology of Time Travel in exchange for an honest review.

Here’s to better books, and here’s to a better tomorrow!

Here’s the next patch:

#12

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr

The synopsis seems great, don’t get me wrong, but honestly, I don’t think I will pick this book up unless I receive it as a gift or something.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Girls of Paper and Fire (Girls of Paper and Fire, #1) by Natasha Ngan

Okay, who hasn’t heard about this book? I have been dreading to read it for months and months now. Definitely staying on this list, probably forever!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Lifel1k3 (Lifelike, #1) by Jay Kristoff

This reminds me of Warcross for some reason. And I know it’s not connected at all, but it just does. And I can’t wait to have the opportunity to read it!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

One Crazy Summer (Gaither Sisters, #1) by Rita Williams-Garcia

Umm, I don’t know why I have this book on my list.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Book of Tomorrow by Cecelia Ahern

I love Cecelia Ahern, and I had ALL OF HER BOOKS added to my TBR. Before making this post I realised that if I didn’t do something, the rest of the next 3 posts will be all about her. So I decided to only choose one book at a time from her, and read them one by one, and add them on my TBR one by one. So this one stayed.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Lucky One by Nicholas Sparks

The same happens with Nicholas Sparks. He was the romance author I spend my childhood with. I cried over all of his books, and they all have a special place in my heart. It is still my goal to read ALL the books he has written, one by one.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

Дениција by Петре М. Андреевски (Denicija by Petre M. Andreevski)

This is a Macedonian book. Poetry full of love and humanity, and a lot of moments of lost loved ones. This one is a gem, and a treasure I carry in my heart from the country I was born in. I am keeping it.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Night Masquerade (Binti, #3) by Nnedi Okorafor

If you already know me and my posts, you will know that I never keep a book that is not first in a series, unless I have read the previous books. This is the reason I am removing this one, but I have added the first book to my TBR – so let’s call it even 🙂

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer

I have to keep this. I mean, this has to be read by every bookworm, right?

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Strange the Dreamer (Strange the Dreamer, #1) by Laini Taylor

Okay, honestly, this has been the hardest Down The TBR Hole Tag ever. It has all the books I want to read, and it’s so hard to get rid of them. I am keeping this one, because I am in love with the cover and synopsis. And don’t forget all the hype it gets. It gets me curious of whether it’s all worth it.

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegant

As this was the last entry in 2018, I will do a little statistic of what I have done in these past 12 Down The TBR Hole posts, 

I have listed 120 titles, of which I have kept 71 and I have removed 49. 268 titles still remain to be listed from my TBR List (27 more posts), and I can’t wait to see my end results. 

Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!

What did you recently finish reading?

I just finished Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead, and I really enjoyed it. I haven’t written my review yet, so watch this space, but I am so so so happy that I finally managed to get if off from my TBR list, after a few years of procrastinating.

Purchase links:

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

What do you think you’ll read next?

Same as last week, I am planning to read a few book that I have been sent by some authors, a great promising books that I can’t wait to share more of with you.

The first one being Awaken by K.S. Marsden. This is the sequel of Winter Trials and you can find my review of the first book HERE. It is a story about high-school, magic and LGBT relationship. The first book gave me an incredible Christmassy feeling, and I can’t wait to dive into the next one.

The second book I plan on finishing before the end of 2018 is Curses of Scale by S.D. Reeves. The cover is so gorgeous. I mean – look at it! It reminds me of Christmas, and also of Hearthstone ( A Blizzard game). It also features a young girl, and dragons and fairies and a fantasy world. I can’t wait to hop into this adventure!

I am always excited when doing this, and a few days before Christmas, I am in the mood of just keeping all books, so I know this will be a tough one.

❤ Order on ascending date added.
❤ Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.

Here’s the next patch:

down the tbr hole book blog books love novel author writer diary of difference

Shatter Me (Shatter Me, #1) by Tahereh Mafi

I did a summer challenge this year, where I read books that my sister recommended. Some of the books were cringy, but some of them were hidden gems and I am so grateful to her for letting me find them. This is one of the recommendations, but I never got to read it. I am keeping it, as I am curious how it will turn out.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Toil & Trouble: 15 Tales of Women & Witchcraft by Tess Sharpe

Look at that cover! Ever since I saw it, I wanted to have it! And I kept hearing amazing stories, and I love witches and witchcraft. Can’t let go of this one.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Lonely Hearts Hotel by Heather O’Neill

Again, very hard choice, as I had this book on my TBR for a very long time, but every time I read that synopsis, I keep being reminded how much I need it.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Love of Her Life by Harriet Evans

I used to love reading these types of books, but at the moment I am not in a mood for chick-lit.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Bridge of Clay by Markus Zusak

Markus Zusak? Yes, please! But this time, I will remove this book, because I already have a few other books from him on my list.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The English Agent by Clare Harvey

After reading The Night Raid, I had to read another another book from Clare Harvey. Looking forward to read this one.

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

The Astrologer’s Daughter by Rebecca Lim

I am not sure why I have this book on my list. Seems alright, but not interesting enough to keep my attention.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Murder at the Vicarage (Miss Marple #1) by Agatha Christie

I love Agatha Christie, and I loved the type of mystery she writes. This is the first book from the Miss Marple series, and I have to read it. AND SOON!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Come Sundown by Nora Roberts

The Obsession by Nora Roberts

I am putting both of the Nora Roberts books together, because I will remove them both. No particular reason, I actually love reading her novels. But she has so many, and I have a lot of them on my TBR, so I decided to only keep one at a time from her, starting from the ones I would want to read the most. And these two don’t seem that interesting at the moment.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegant

My TBR has improved so much!!! I am so happy, and looking forward to listing all my books and reducing my TBR even more. I managed to remove 5 books this week.

Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!

Relic (Pendergast, #1) by Douglas Preston

I am actually not certain why I have this book on my TBR, but I think someone mentioned it to me a while ago. I love thrillers, but I don’t think this one intrigued me.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Waterfall Effect by K.K. Allen

I remember wanting to read this book, as it’s about mountain survival. But it is also a romance, so I am not sure. Guys – let me know what to do with this one. I will wait a week and then remove it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Wicked Like a Wildfire (Hibiscus Daughter, #1) by Lana Popović

Lana is an author born in Serbia, a neighbour country to my country, Macedonia. And the cover is so delicious. And the story seems so great. And I own this book. Why is not in my READ shelf already?

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

It seems like a read I might enjoy only in a certain mood. I also have no knowledge on how this hopped on my list.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Astonishing Color of After by Emily X.R. Pan

This is a book that raised a lot of hype. The synopsis reminds me of a book I read when I was little – Taro The Dragon Boy by M. M…(edit).

Verdict: KEEP ☑  

A Study in Charlotte(Charlotte Holmes, #1) by Brittany Cavallaro

A Sherlock Holmes re-creation, with the detective being a girl. GIMME!

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

Defy the Stars (Constellation, #1) by Claudia Gray

Seems like a nice sci-fi story, but intimidates me, and I am not 100% sure if I will enjoy it.

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Caraval (Caraval, #1) by Stephanie Garber

A big hype around this one. I want to read it so badly!!!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

The Hidden Oracle (The Trials of Apollo, #1) by Rick Riordan

I want to read so many books from Mr. Riordan. Firstly, the Percy Jackson series, and then this one. I love Greek Mythology and always love reading these types of books.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑ 

Flame in the Mist (Flame in the Mist, #1) by Renee Ahdieh

Something smells of Mulan here. Nevertheless, I want to read it so badly!

Verdict: KEEP ☑ 

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegant

I know, I know, I only removed 4 this time, but hey – this was a great tough selection of books. And my TBR is getting ”healthier” and not so intimidating.

Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!

Carrie – Stephen King [BOOK REVIEW]

90% Sale Today!

★★★★

I am probably one of the last people on Earth that hasn’t read a Stephen King book. Carrie is the first book I decided to read. People have been suggesting it to me for a while, and it seemed like a nice short bit of introduction to Stephen’s horror world.

Also, a special thank you to my friend Dave, for constantly recommending Stephen King books to me, until I finally decided to listen to him. He seemed to be right! Don’t forget to go and follow him – he is amazing!

Now – Carrie.

A book about a girl that lives with her crazy religious mother in a creepy house. A girl who is being bullied at school all the time. A story about a girl that has the ability to move objects as she wishes. And a prom night, where everything escalates.

Carrie is a sixteen year old girl. And she has been raised by her mother, who is a religious person in a – not healthy way. When Carrie misbehaves, she is sent to a closet to pray for the whole day. Even though Carrie doesn’t share her mother’s beliefs, she can’t really stand up and fight for herself.

The plot gets a grip when Carrie has her first period at the age of sixteen. She thinks she will bleed to death. And all her classmates are laughing at her, because she is stupid. And throw tampons her way. And as I am reading this, I keep thinking – what kind of mother won’t tell her child about menstruation, and puberty, and all the normal teenage phases a kid has to go through while growing up?

This moment, in the school bathroom, is the moment Carrie finds out about her powers.

And a few weeks later, a terrible thing happens.

This is a horror story, but the horror doesn’t lie in what Carrie did, but what led her to do that. Who it is to blame, and why things escalated the way they did.

Stephen King described bullying in its most painful and real way, and the consequences it can lead to. And it does happen, in every school, to a lot of children all over the world each day. A sometimes, most of the times, they are bullied only because they are different, not because they are bad.

This is a story that silently stands up to bullying, and by doing that raises such a strong voice in every corner of the world.

And remember – if you are the bully – think twice before you say things. Words can hurt, and they can result in bad things happening. Think twice about why you say what you say. The classmate of yours might have a talent you don’t know of.

And if you are the bullied child – also remember – you are kind and beautiful, no matter what everyone says. You shouldn’t let people bring you down. And we have all been bullied while growing up. Once you reach a certain age, people stop caring, and you stop caring what people think, and then, finally, you can be comfortable and happy with who you are!

  • Decide: keep it or should it go

Here’s the next patch:

The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown

The Lost Symbol and Origin are the only books I haven’t read from the Robert Langdon Series. I am eager to finish what I have started.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

Digital Fortress by Dan Brown

As my previous comment, with already two books on my TBR from Dan Brown, I will remove Digital Fortress from my TBR for now.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen

A classic I have always been trying to get my hands on, and a must-read book. Staying!

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

This is a Macedonian book by one of the most popular show-men in our country. As I have no chance of getting this book in my hands right now, I will pass.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder

I have wanted to read Sophie’s World since childhood, and I love philosophy. This one is staying, and I will actually push this to be one of my reads in early 2019.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

Steve Jobs by Walter Isaacton

I actually don’t know what this book is doing here, or why I have put it. Needless to say more?

Verdict:  REMOVE ✖

Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher

I am half-way through the second season of the TV Show, and I know that 90% of the times books are better than movies, so I will give this one a go.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

The Princess Diaries by Meg Cabot

I have put this on my wishlist 5 years ago. Now I realise why. Unfortunately (or luckily), this is not my taste anymore. I think I’ve grown up.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

All I want for Christmas by Amy Silver

I don’t remember adding this book to my list. It seems like a great read, and I love Christmas books. I thought I should keep it in case we run out of new Christmas books, but who are we kidding… As I don’t own this at the moment, I will let it go.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

The Nanny by Melissa Nathan

I love Nanny books, this subject has a great meaning to me. I am not sure if I will read this in a near future, or ever read it, but I will keep it in my TBR for now.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegant

Down The TBR Hole #1

down the tbr hole book books blog diary of difference

I saw an amazing post created by Lost In A Story! It is supposed to be productive and help you to narrow your TBR list down. This is my first time doing it, so hopefully you can also help me decide whether I have made the right choices!

How it works:

  •  Go to your Goodreads to-read shelf.

  •  Order on ascending date added.

  •  Take the first 5 (or 10 if you’re feeling adventurous) books.

  • Read the synopsis of the books.

  •  Decide: keep it or should it go

 

Books 1-10

TBR #1.jpgTBR #1.2.jpg

➥  The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson

This book has been on my shelf since 2014, and I have never read it. I even have the books. I really love the synopsis, it’s a bestseller and mostly all of my friends have loved it.

Verdict: KEEP  ☑

➥  Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn 

I have heard so many good things about this book. I love mysteries and psychological thrillers, and I really want to get to read this one. I don’t own it yet, but hopefully that will change soon.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Deception Point by Dan Brown

I love Dan Brown and I have read most of his books. This book was the first on my list by him, but I read all the other ones before. I will give it a pass now, and hopefully will return to it some day.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

➥ The Diary Of A Young Girl by Anne Frank

I have actually read this book when I was in middle grade school – but I never analysed it the way I would now – that is why this is on my TBR list. I will keep it for now, and hopefully will borrow it from the library next month.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead

This has been on my TBR since I was a teen – I have it at home and never managed to read it. However, these past few months I have been in a ”vampire books” mood, so I will keep it on my list for now.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Safe Harbour by Danielle Steel

I have read many books from Danielle Steel, and I have enjoyed them all. At the moment, she has far more newer books than Safe Harbour, so I will pass it.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

Me Before You by Jojo Moyes

I enjoyed ”The Last Letter From Your Lover” so much, and I have seen the movie for Me Before You. I might not get to it straight away, but I have to read this book.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

Marley & Me by John Grogan

Probably you have all heard or read this book by now. I haven’t. I know, I know, I am horrible. I always manage to not read the most read books in the world. I am keen or reading it, but I am not sure whether I will actually get to it.

Verdict: KEEP ☑

The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks

Nicholas Sparks is my favourite romance authors. I have read so many books from him, and keep reading them. The Rescue is one of the books I have always put away in the corner, you know, for later. I should definitely prioritise it!

Verdict: KEEP ☑

The Bourne Identity  by Robert Ludlum 

I have put this book on my list because it is widely popular. I have also tried watching the movie, but stopped it half-way through. I like the synopsis, but I never get to actually read it. Maybe some other time.

Verdict: REMOVE ✖

flower-divider-flower-dividers-clip-art-flowers-line-divider-stock-vector-illustration-of-elegant

Well, I managed to clear 3 out of 10 from my TBR List this time, so I suppose that’s not too bad. Let me know if you have read any of these, and if you want me to keep or remove any of these books from my list! I look forward to see what you think!
