Book Review: Time Between Us by Tamara Ireland Stone

Happy fall everyone! I hope your school year has gotten off to a great start. I spent my Columbus Day this year reading Tamara Ireland Stone's Time Between Us cover to cover. Let me tell you, it was worth it. 

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett’s unique ability to travel through time and space brings him into Anna’s life, and with him, a new world of adventure and possibility.

As their relationship deepens, they face the reality that time might knock Bennett back where he belongs, even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time. 

Time Between Us was a perfect way for me to start off the TBF blogging year. There's nothing like a good book to sit down with and tell everyone "yes, I recommend" once you've finished it. Tamara Ireland Stone did a great job beautifully crafting this love story. 

What I found so alluring about Time Between Us was it's wonderful characters and interesting plot. Anna, our main character, from page one was introduced as average teenage girl who had wanted to just get away from her small town. Bennett, on the other hand, was a mystery to Anna. Out of place in her average life. So full of secrets. He was her daring adventure, so to speak. When combined with the amazing power Bennett possesses, and the underlying reason he was spending time in 1995 in the first place, the story became a powerful one. Not just an adventure for Anna or Bennett but for us as readers as well. If you pick this book up expecting a cliché love story you are definitely not going to get it. 

I would definitely recommend Time Between Us to any reader who is a big fan of time travel and or romance. You will definitely get sucked into the 1995 right along with the characters.

That's all for today. Happy reading!
