six months later

Six Months Later by Natalie Richards.

I received a free copy from Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

Publication Date: 1st October 2013

Chloe didn’t think about it much when she nodded off in study hall on that sleepy summer day. But when she wakes up, snow is on the ground and she can’t remember the last six months of her life. Before, she’d been a mediocre student. Now, she’s on track for valedictorian and being recruited by Ivy League schools. Before, she never had a chance with super jock Blake. Now he’s her boyfriend. Before, she and Maggie were inseparable. Now her best friend won’t speak to her.

What happened to her?
And why can’t she remember?

General Overview

I really enjoyed this book, it was a little predictable, but the story flowed well and was well rounded, I liked how all characters acted like they should in scary situations. Maggie is my favourite character, she was not in it much but she was a like a pillar or focal point throughout the story. There was a new twist to the love triangle, it was refreshing.

4 out of 5 stars.

Step by step overview

0% – I like the idea of this book. It will be interesting to find out what made her forget 6 months of her life and if things will go back to normal.

10% – It starts before she skips ahead 6 months and it gives a little background to her and her friends. She no memory at all of the last 6 months. Is it amnesia or something more sinister?

20% – Is she cheating on Blake with Adam or is something else going on? Possibility of more people involved, gives plenty more possibilities.

30% – I am wondering if her new genius powers are anything to do with why she has lost her memory. Are Blake and Adam in on this? I am liking that there is next to no teenage slang, that we grown ups think they use. I think it will appeal to more people written like this.

40% – Not had any major clues about what happened. Enjoying the story greatly though.

50% – A few questions have been answered but more and more are arising.

60% – There seems to be a little confusion in setting at one point. They are on a construction site then in a diner then back on the construction site with no indication of having moved.

70% – Looks like some questions might be answered soon. I don’t think Adam is involved anymore.

80% – What happened is starting to come out, but it fairly predictable, still enjoying it. I keep going back and forth on whether Adam is involved.

90% – It’s getting excited now, things are starting to add up.

100% – It ended nicely, most questions answered. (just one that wasn’t, but think that’s just me). I would recommend this to anyone who likes young adult books.

Until next time, happy reading bookworms.
