We’re super excited for you guys to read Hourglass by Myra McEntire — our June Book of the Month, which comes out June 14th! But why should you get excited about this one? Here are our top 5 reasons you want to read Hourglass:
I know a lot of people think the whole “love triangle” thing is “so last year” — but that’s simply not the case with Hourglass. You’ve got sizzling chemistry between Emerson and Michael (in some cases, those “sizzles” are pretty literal — I mean actual sparks are flying) — and then Kaleb strolls in and adds a whole new layer to the mix. Who will she choose? And more importantly … who do you want her to choose?
2. An Awesome Cast of Characters
From Emerson’s lovable older brother Thomas (and sister in law Dru), to best friend Lily, and the outcasts from Hourglass, this book is chock-full of amazing characters you’ll fall in love with. Spending time with them is simply a blast.
3. Time travel!
It’s not something we’ve seen a lot of in YA recently, and Myra delivers it with a totally unique flair.
4. Hourglass is un-put-down-able
Between the action, the romance, the mystery, and the winning characters, this book will suck you in, in all the right ways.
5. Superb setting
Feel like making an escape to the luscious South. Myra totally takes you there with her incredibly sweeping descriptions of her book’s Southern setting. It’s the cheapest vacation you’ll ever get.
