Some Books Ago: Hourglass (Hourglass #1) by Myra McEntire

Some Books Ago is a shout out to all those books published some years ago. I don't want you to forget them!

Happy *almost* weekend everyone! Today, in Some Books Ago, I'd like to spotlight Hourglass by Myra McEntire. I loved this book when I read it and I still think about it as one of the best time-travel books I've ever read. Sadly, I made the big mistake and waited too long to read the sequel and I found myself unable to reconnect with the characters *sighs* Even though I had to DNF Timepiece, I still think of Hourglass with love. And I still think this is a great series.
Check it out!

Hourglass was published on June 14th 2011 by Egmont USA



One hour to rewrite the past…

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn't there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents' death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She's tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson's willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may also change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he's around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should've happened?


  1. Ohh, I remember seeing this cover all over GR when I first got into reading in English.
    It always looked interesting but I never got a chance to read it...

  2. Oo this sounds really intriguing!! I like that cover a lot.

  3. Ohhhh, I loved this book! The age difference between Em and her man was kind of large for a YA couple (she's a teen and he is several years older - less than five years older, but still). I liked this series a lot! =)

    1. Oh my! I don't remember that! I remember I loved this book, but I've forgotten most of it. Maybe if I reread it I can give the sequel a second chance!
