Infinityglass (Hourglass #3)

The stakes have risen even higher in this third book in the Hourglass series.

The Hourglass is a secret organization focused on the study of manipulating time, and its members — many of them teenagers -­have uncanny abilities to make time work for them in mysterious ways. Inherent in these powers is a responsibility to take great care, because altering one small moment can have devastating consequences for the past, present, and future. But some time trav­elers are not exactly honorable, and sometimes unsavory deals must be struck to maintain order.

With the Infinityglass (central to understanding and harnessing the time gene) at large, the hunt is on to find it before someone else does.

But the Hourglass has an advantage. Lily, who has the ability to locate anything lost, has determined that the Infinityglass isn’t an object. It’s a person. And the Hourglass must find him or her first. But where do you start searching for the very key to time when every second could be the last?

I have so many books lined up to read and also so many books that I forgot to read. Apparently, this is one of those books that are left forgotten. As you can see, this is the third book for the Hourglass series. I’ve read the first two books and it excites me thus far. This has been published the 6th of August of 2013 and I’m reading it just right now.

Yeah. I know. Loser.

I haven’t blog about the first two books on this series because.. Sigh. I have no good reason. I’m lazy. 😀 Well anyway, I love the series and really looking forward to enjoying this one as well. Each book has different POV so that’s so nice. I love it when a series spin on each character rather than focusing on one especially if there were at least four to six pairs. There is so much to love on this series really.

Most of the reviews were three to five stars so I’m so thrilled. Here are some of the reviews I’ve read through Goodreads:

I am shocked that I loved this book.
I can’t believe it, it’s been so long since I’ve actually loved a YA book. This book was simple – good characters, solid plot, cute love story, well planned climax, great ending. There, that’s all it takes to write a valuable YA book and Infinityglass delivered on every level.

The Infinityglass is the final installment in the Hourglass series and what an explosive ending we got! Myra McEntire has such a fierce gift for storytelling. I love the voices she gives to each of her characters. It’s always filled with good humor, witty dialog and amazing chemistry. Time travel and supernatural abilities are the perfect combination for a fascinating and intriguing concept. It was so much fun seeing how this latest mind-blowing situation would all play out. I’ve really grown to love the outstanding cast and this freshly unique world and I’m so sad to see it end.Tina

I have read a lot of review, but this one really caught my attention:

Ok, I liked how the series ended. Perfect ending. It was the other stuff that bugged. Once again, the characters say waaaaayy too much; They talk about their feelings a lot, which people just don’t really do. Well, the people I know don’t do that. McEntire, I want you to show me emotion, don’t have the character say it out loud. It’s cheesy. And weird. I wasn’t a fan of the changing POV. I’ve seen it done well. This wasn’t one of those times. And, again, the time-related abilities was a complete stretch. Just say they have supernatural powers; I get why McEntire wanted to connect everything to time but it just wasn’t working. And then Dune. Besides the fact that he was a hot Samoan, there was nothing spectacular about him; He could have been anyone. His voice and everyone else’s voice were so similar that I had a hard time telling them apart–which is why the changing POV didn’t work so well. This whole series just deserves an overall “meh”. It was a nice, quick read but I’m sure I could find something better. — Nicole Edwards

Evidently, we do have different views about the series, but I still want to consider her review. Though I totally disagree about the changing POV part. 😀 I would definitely look out for Dune on this book and weigh how will I feel about how his character will be presented. Still excited to read it though. Review to follow. Happy reading to me! 😀
