    One thought on “Passenger”

    1. MY VIDEO REVIEW - youtube/watch?v=RbGmrTHIS WAS AWESOME. It did take me a little bit to really get into it, but once I was in, I WAS SO IN. It was so atmospheric, and I was really impressed with the details and the amount of research that had to go into writing this. The time travel aspect was fascinating and just straight up cool, I loved our two main characters and was so happy that we got to see from both of their POVs. AND THAT ENDING! Let's just say I'm eagerly anticipating book 2.If you're [...]

    2. THIS WAS SO GOOD! Of course we get a classic Alexandra Bracken cliff hanger at the end. I loved the writing style in this book! It was completely different than the darkest minds trilogy. I love seeing when author's change it up.

    3. Loved the world created in Passenger, and I can't wait to get my hands on book 2 after that ending! Here's my full booktalk/review: youtube/watch?v=H403u

    4. I will write a review for this book, but really I can sum it up in two words: hard work.Very long, very slow, very boring. Literally the only thing I liked about this book was that the male love interest was African American (because that is sadly still way too uncommon). But it was at least 150 pages too long - and I'm not sure cutting the length could liven up the pace - and very easy to put down. If I had not been reading an ARC and also didn't want to get harassed by Bracken fans for writing [...]

    5. So excited for you guys to read this! It's very different from TDM :) REVIEWERS PLEASE NOTE: The story has undergone changes since the BEA ARC was produced several months ago. If your version DOES NOT begin these chapters, please ask for an updated manuscript/ARC: scribd/doc/267310694/ Merci!While you're waiting, check out the Pinterest board for the duology! pinterest/alex_bracke

    6. If he thought he was going to grab her, he was going to get every last ounce of New York City she possessed. Etta swung her head around, searching for something sharp.Whoa! Whoa! Trust me when I say that this book was all sorts of surprising. You might have recalled that last week, I read Bracken's Darkest Minds and hated it, to say the least. I'm always willing to give the author another chance, but to be honest, I didn't have high hopes. That's not to mention the blurb being confusing and long [...]

    7. That was soooo incredibly tediously BORING. Which makes me sad because this is my first even Bracken book and I honestly just want to NAP after this. I care exactly 2% about anything that happened in this story. And why was it so loooooong? And why did nothing exciting happen for over half the book? WHY WHY WHY.I am a miserable fish of disappointment right now.Literally the ONLY good things I have to say are: that it was great to see an African American love-interest, and that I adored how Etta [...]

    8. DNF @ 60%If I could sum up this book in one word, it would be this: tedious.Etta, a young woman on the cusp of adulthood, has spent her entire youth as a sheltered, lonely, talented violinist. She’s neglected having a social life in favor of long hours of practice, her only two companions her cold, distant mother, and her elderly violin coach. On the night of her musical debut, everything changes. Three chords into her solo, a gong reverberates through her mind, shattering her concentration. J [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this book! I don't think I'm quite as blown away as most people, but it was really good.This book didn't really start to pick up until about 150 pages in for me, so just give it some time whenever you pick it up - it hooks you eventually BUILDING AND TIME TRAVEL WERE GREAT. All of that was fantastic and interesting and unique and well done and I loved it.Overall I liked the characters, though the romance was a bit much sometimes. (insta-love anyone?) I equally loved and hated it [...]

    10. If you didn't like The Darkest Minds and are wondering if this is worth reading, don't read it.I began this book with an open mind after not liking TDM. I was going into it blindly because the synopsis was so vague and confusing, and reading this for the first several chapters, I just noted that there's absolutely no hook. From the description to the beginning of this book, everything was totally uninteresting, I had no idea what I was going into, and I was bored with the idea because I didn't u [...]

    11. Getting back on the train for 2016! This was an excellent first book, however it did not meet my expectations. I was wishing for a more epic adventure tale, the events leading up to the end of the book were lacking excitement. Although I have no doubt the second book is going to be amazing with the cliffhanger Alex left us with. More or my thought here: youtu/hkt26OBYv2A

    12. I'm a huge fan of Bracken's first series, The Darkest Minds, so I was stoked to hear she was writing a second series. Passenger highlights all of Bracken's strong suits: strong characters, extensive history research, character-driven plot, and shippable romance and keeps readers guessing until the very end.Violin prodigy, Etta Spencer, accidentally uncovers the secret society of time travelers and is thrust into a dangerous hunt to retrieve a powerful object that could change the world for the w [...]

    13. *I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*Full Review: youtu/rm2jtr8q6LwWOW. An awesome book to start out the year! If you love time-traveling, definitely pick this up!Oceans, deserts, forests, London, France, New York City I wish every book could have these amazing settings. I really enjoyed the main character Etta and the fast pace of this book! The adventure she finds herself in was super fun and I just couldn't put this down!I'll have my full video review up i [...]

    14. ❝Love was selfish, wasn't it? It made honest men want things they had no right to. It cocooned one from the rest of the world, erased time itself, knocked away reason. It made you live in defiance of the inevitable. It made you want another's mind, body; it made you feel as if you deserved to own their heart, and carve out a place in it.❞I really wanted to like this one. I really did. But I knew I wouldn't because when it came out, there mixed reviews about it but even with the mixing added, [...]

    15. I've been tossing up whether to give this 2.5 or 3 stars as I was curious enough about certain elements to not mark this as DNF but there were a lot of other things about this book that just plain annoyed me. I ended up giving it a 2.5.Passenger is about a violinist named Etta who is thrust into the secret world of time travel on the night of her debut. She must go on a risky treasure hunt across time to find a dangerous object which has the power to change the world in drastic ways if it falls [...]

    16. 3.5 stars. I think if you're used to reading YA plots, this book will come off as suuuuuper slow and tedious. But if you're fine with the pacing of "adult" historical fiction books then it's a more enjoyable read! It fell somewhere in the middle for me like the writing was good but I still wanted everything to get moving.The story reminded me a bit of Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier with how there are families that pass on the genetic ability to time travel, how the girl finds herself traveling to diff [...]

    17. I had absolutely no expectations going into this one and I am glad to say that I throughly enjoyed it!This book was by no means perfect. At times it was a bit cliche and aspects of the plot were somewhat unoriginal. However what I loved about this book was that it allowed me to completely escape reality. I just had such a fantastic time exploring this world and falling in love with these characters that I didn't have to think about anything else. Overall, this was an extremely fun read and I can [...]

    18. Video review to come!The concept was killer, the characters had a ton of potential, but this book really suffered from first book syndrome, symptoms being: chronic information dumps and a sloooow moving plot. It picked up a lot in the end and I really did have fun reading it, but I didn't love it as much as I had expected. I am excited to see where the series will go though!

    19. So all throughout my life, society, the media, and my peers have indoctrinated me with the opinion that PASSENGER SUCKS !!And honestly I wasSOOOOOOOOOOhesitant to start this book bc everyone knows I can’t handle another slump in my tragic life and slow pacing is not my best friend HOWEVER comma its was actually pretty decent. (s) Pros- TIME !!- TRAVEL !!- Historic fiction owns my soul and it was bloody gorgeous - Nicholas Carter - The world buildings is 😍 😍- I LOVED TRAVELING TO DIFFEREN [...]

    20. Edit 12/10 : The title is now free to request on Netgalley. I was denied (of course, Disney^^) but perhaps you'll be more lucky :) (view spoiler)[They never, ever, approve me (FOR REASONS, I guess), so it doesn't mean anything for you, try it out! (hide spoiler)]Edit 04/29 : I think I'm in love with that cover. Edit 04/14 : Alexandra Bracken just shared her Pinterest board she created for this series.pinterest/alex_brackeDID I SAY I WANTED IT? YEAH? Pssst! Okay, so let me sum up : it is a time t [...]

    21. Beautiful, smart, diverse, and well-researched.This is one of those times where the story on the inside matches perfectly with the amazing cover on the outside.Truly absorbing. Alex has woven in some delicate intricacies of history and shown how old hurts trickle up into society hundreds of years later. She manages to deal with some very important issues in a thoughtful, intriguing way.And the romance…love, love, LOVE. So much love for it!!

    22. Pirates, historical settings and time travel! This is pretty much the entire book and I gobbled it up! From the first page, I was already hooked. Bracken's writing pulls you in and keeps you there until the very last chapter. I had no inkling as to what this book was about because I pretty much judged it from the cover, not having read the synopsis either. I'm so happy that I did that because it made me focus on other things and not how close it was to the description.As for the characters? Ther [...]

    23. I ended up just skimming the rest of this book. Eventually, it just dragged on. I definitely loved the concept of this book, though. I loved the time traveling and how they had to go to different years to search for an object. I also loved the characters. They were very interesting to read about. Overall, I found the plot kind of boring and very slow.

    24. Read with all my other buddy reading addicts at Buddies Books & BaublesWell I finally finished. It’s not fair this book has an absolutely gorgeous cover and I really wanted to love it but I never really got carried away by the story. I actually set this book down and didn’t pick it up again for 3 weeks. That is unheard of for me.A few of my issues are as follows.❶ - I never connected with the characters really. Etta is a master violinist with stage fright who never plays the violin thr [...]
