Publisher: Month9Books

Jenny Kramer knows she isn't normal. After all, not everybody can see the past lives of people around them.
When she befriends Ben Daulton, resident new boy, the pair stumble on an old music box with instructions for “mesmerization” and discover they may have more in common than they thought. Like a past life.

Using the instructions in the music box, Ben and Jenny share a dream that transports them to Romanov Russia and leads them to believe they have been there together before. But they weren't alone. Nikolai, the mysterious young man Jenny has been seeing in her own dreams was there, too. When Nikolai appears next door, Jenny is forced to acknowledge that he has travelled through time and space to find her. Doing so means he has defied the laws of time, and the Order, an ominous organization tasked with keeping people in the correct time, is determined to send him back. 

While Ben, Jenny and Nikolai race against the clock - and the Order - Jenny and Nikolai discover a link that joins them in life - and beyond death.

My Review:

Unfortunately, a little over halfway through, I stopped reading this book. Even though I didn’t finish reading it, I thought I would write a short review based on what I read and explain why I stopped reading.

The biggest thing about this book for me is that it is very slow.  As I was reading, my eyes brushed over the words quickly in attempt to read faster and get to pivotal scenes. However, after a while the action and excitement just didn’t come and I decided to put Endless down. In my opinion, this book drags on and on without really hinting at what the characters are trying to achieve and where they’re headed. While I was reading, I had no idea where the story was going and I was getting more and more confused as it progressed. 

Due to the slow moving pace, inanimate characters, and confusing plot, over halfway through, I decided that this book wasn’t for me. 

Because I didn’t finish Endless, I’m not going to give it a final rating.

(I received an advance copy from Month9Books through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.)

Stay nerdy,
Julia

Oh, I'm sorry you didn't like it. I was thinking of reading this, but I hate when books are super slow, so maybe not. Thanks for warning me, anyways! :D
