My Review:

Going into Untimely, I was a little skeptical. It’s really hard for me to get into some of the time travel novels because I absolutely adore Outlander. It has ruined me for other books with time travel elements.

Yet J&L Wells truly surprised me with this one. It had its ups and downs, mostly because I’m impatient and want to get into the nitty-gritty, but it was fun. I liked Heather, not only because we have the same name, but because of her personality. While I didn’t always agree with her choices, I tried to remember that she is only seventeen in the novel. Judy and Laura really captured the way a teenager thinks with this one, and that isn’t commonly found within a NA novel (at least with a seventeen year old protagonist).

This book is labeled NA, but it didn’t feel like that to me. Heather is still pretty immature, and the intimate scenes weren’t graphic. The story doesn’t revolve around ‘life after becoming an adult’, but more along the lines of the adventure she goes through.  I would label it as a YA.

Speaking of the adventure! My recommendation: do not read this novel at night, when you’re curled up in bed with your e-reader and all the lights are off. Especially if you’re scared of the dark. I had a couple moments where I really felt a chill down my spine and had to look around my dark bedroom as if a creepy would crawl out from my closet. Yes…the creepy scenes are really awesome.

In fact, the Wells did a great job at capturing the emotions of their characters. The whole book is in Heather’s POV, but you could really imagine the feelings of the other characters as well. That is not an easy thing to do for an author.

I recommend this book to people who enjoy time travel with a little bit of creepy thrown in, and can look past some of the teenage angst. There is a second novel, but I didn’t feel as though the end was a cliffhanger, so that’s a good thing.
