Mean Who You Are

I love reading and writing. I read most genres but my favourites would be paranormal romances and inspirational/motivational books. I have mostly started this blog because I love to read so much and want to share my reviews and thoughts with the world or anyone who wants to read it, giving my little bit of input to the world as well as any topics of light that would help and motivate you. I am also an aspiring author, in between reading books and reviewing them, I am writing two separate books, one fiction and one non-fiction. I have too many books and Ebooks, enough to last me probably 2 lifetimes! You can never have enough books... he he

Synopsis

Four friends drive to a college party and take an unexpected detour into the future.

"Society" by Terra Harmony

"Forbidden Future" by James Wymore
A time machine technician has given his whole life to the pure scientific pursuit of the study of time travel.  When his personal life falls apart, he decides to risk it all and take a trip into the future.  First, he must remove a failsafe blocking the machine from traveling to the future.  What could be so bad that they tried to stop anybody from seeing it?


"The Mountains Haven't"  
by Kade Anderson
     The people of the town of Dignity go about their daily lives, trying to scrape out a meager existence from the dirt and the dust of their land, never taking notice of the mountains that loom in the distance. To the others, the mountains are benign, as harmless as the grass their cows graze upon. To the town's Watcher, Julia, the mountains hold the key to a far greater mystery.


My Review:
This is the first time I have read an anthology and I was a bit nervous about writing this review. I discovered this tour through Terra Harmony's website as I have read the first book in her Akasha series, see my review here, plus I absolutely love the Masquerade tours blog as well! 
 
This anthology is filled with short bursts of adventure. Each story takes you on a quick catapult adventure which all involve choices and a trip to the future. Whether they were kidnapped or took a trip in a time travel machine. 
 
Between Utopias by Michael trimmer ~ 3.5/5
I liked the message of the story - we always have a choice and even if we make the wrong choice, we can fix it by speaking up. There were a few grammar.editing errors. 
 
Forbidden Future by James Wymore ~ 3/5
The message to me in this story was about choices and knowledge. Sometimes if someone has done something or they really advise against it - there is a very good reason for it!
 
Society by Terra harmony ~ 5/5
Society has the best writing and story line. The future is a scary place if we don't look after it. 
 
Road Trip by Matt Mitrovich ~ 4/5
Road trip was the most fun story for me, but a little confusing at times. 
 
Cacotopia by James Lauren ~ 3/5
Ignorance is bliss? Sometimes there is a fine line in this concept. 
 
The Mountains Haven't by Kade Anderson ~ 3/5
This story was interesting to say the leas. I connected with the characters really easily. 
 
My Rating:
All in all this was a fun read full of adventures.
