    I was a little disappointed at the ending o my because I figured it out from the beginning. But I did really like the mix of kids and their impact on one another. Finishing this book during the horrible Florida school shooting that happened yesterday and hearing all the talking heads o...

    I really enjoying Charbonneau's The Testing trilogy, so I had high hopes for this one. I'm not sure why but for some reason I found myself not interested or invested in the characters or the story, which literally was explosive. It has the elements to be great: bomb at a high school, h...

    Imagine One of Us Is Lying meets The Breakfast Club and chuck in some bombs and this is what you get! The narrative is split between 6 characters, all defined and distinctive, and all with their own secrets and personal agendas. It was interesting to see how their revelations played...

    The Breakfast Club with bombs...? It really is a bit like that. A group of disparate high school students, each disgruntled in their own ways, are forced to bond in school in an unusual situation, revealing their secrets slowly until commonalities and comradeships are formed. Except...

    Not terribly impressed with this. I think that in 2018, books about topics like mass violence in schools need to have moral, psychological and political complexity. I've read similar books (I'm mainly thinking of This Is Where It Ends - you can read my review of that here. For me, ...

    I have not kept up on all of Joelle Charbonneau's books, but after reading this one I was reminder that I should be! This was the fifth novel or novella that I have read by Charbonneau and all of them were excellent. This is one of those novels that could be taken from the news headlin...

    For such an explosive topic (literally), Time Bomb failed to keep me invested. For one, there are too many POVs. Yes, when there is subject matter such as this, needing to get the feel for each character's mindset is a must. This story had too many times to get the flow right, and fail...

    I received an advance copy from the publisher via NetGalley. I have always enjoyed Joelle Charbonneau's novels and was curious to read her new one even more when I read the synopsis. The concept of this novel is simple, several bombs have explode in a high school, 6 survivors try...

    The whodunit part of the story unfolding had me completely biting my nails. The fact that these teens had to rely on each other when they knew one of them was responsible for the bombing is intense! ...

    [full review is up on my blog] Oh my word! This book is so gripping! Trust me when I say that you'll have a hard time putting it down! At first I thought the transition of focus between 5-6 characters would be hard to follow, but after all the kids are at the school you barely not...

    This was an extremely fast read for me; I flew through ?Time Bomb? in a matter of hours, and it almost felt like I was following a similar clock to the one that was ticking away in the book. Six exceedingly different students, not unlike seen with the setup in the movie ?The Brea...

    This book was one of my highly anticipated releases of March. Especially with whats currently going on with #MarchForOurLives, I was excited to see how the author tackles this subject. However, I found this book to be extremely predictable and too stereotypical to have really added any...

    I'd like to thank Netgalley for providing me an eARC of Time Bomb! When I first read the synopsis, it instantly gave me vibes similar to One of Us is Lying which was one of my favourite reads of 2017 so I was super keen on reading it. And for the first half, the book lived up to my e...

    I actually read this super duper fast which is most likely due to the writing itself. The author has a great style that is clear and flowing which is a reason that I love her work so much. That being said, this book did leave some things to be considered and left me with some unanswere...

    Thanks to the publisher for providing an ARC in exchange for an honest review, This doesn't in any way influence my opinion on it. Time Bomb is the second book I'm reading from Joelle Charbonneau and I'm once again enamored by how talented she is. Her writing is so transcendent it...

    This book is going to stay with me for a long time. It's the kind of story you want to discuss with as many people as possible and that you can't stop thinking about. A very sensitive and thought-provoking exploration of difficult themes, featuring relateable characters and a narrative...
