    When I first saw the description of Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau I couldn?t help but be extremely curious. Last year I had heard all the buzz for This Is Where It Ends and had high hopes when I picked that one up only to be really disappointed. However, after reading Time Bomb I h...

    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...

    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, ...

    It's the week before a new school year will begin at Hallwood high school, but the doors are open to students and teachers looking to get a head start on what they need to do. Some are setting up their classrooms, others are getting their student ID's or fixing their schedules... but t...

    i finally finished a book!!!!! i didn?t have time to read all week so i made it my mission to read as much as i could as soon as i got home today (i spent the week in Poland with my family). Time Bomb is about a group of students who happen to be at school the day a bomb goes off...

    This was a quick, suspenseful, read & it was made all the better with my Once Upon a Book Club gifts. :) ...

    Oh, wat was dit een goed boek! De test serie en Nodig van dezelfde schrijfster vond ik erg goed, dus ik was heel benieuwd naar deze. Ik vind het tof dat aan het begin van het boek alle personages een verdachte zijn. Allemaal hebben ze een totaal ander motief, maar iedereen zou het g...

    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...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    When I first saw the description of Time Bomb by Joelle Charbonneau I couldn?t help but be extremely curious. Last year I had heard all the buzz for This Is Where It Ends and had high hopes when I picked that one up only to be really disappointed. However, after reading Time Bomb I h...

    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...

    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, ...

    It's the week before a new school year will begin at Hallwood high school, but the doors are open to students and teachers looking to get a head start on what they need to do. Some are setting up their classrooms, others are getting their student ID's or fixing their schedules... but t...

    i finally finished a book!!!!! i didn?t have time to read all week so i made it my mission to read as much as i could as soon as i got home today (i spent the week in Poland with my family). Time Bomb is about a group of students who happen to be at school the day a bomb goes off...

    This was a quick, suspenseful, read & it was made all the better with my Once Upon a Book Club gifts. :) ...

    "Er zijn nu al 4 bommen afgegaan, maar er schijnt nog een explosief in de school te zijn dat elk moment kan ontploffen." ~ p9. De nachtmerrie van iedere ouder, de hel voor ieder schoolgaand kind. Wat een indrukwekkend verhaal om te lezen! "Als jij wilt geloven dat ik een slecht ...

    Oh, wat was dit een goed boek! De test serie en Nodig van dezelfde schrijfster vond ik erg goed, dus ik was heel benieuwd naar deze. Ik vind het tof dat aan het begin van het boek alle personages een verdachte zijn. Allemaal hebben ze een totaal ander motief, maar iedereen zou het g...

    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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! ...

    I little predictable but still enjoyable and very human. It was very believable ...

    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...

    *Source* NetGalley/Library *Genre* Young Adult, Thriller, Mystery *Rating* 3.0 *Thoughts* Joelle's Charbonneau's Time Bomb is a standalone, young adult, thriller & suspense novel featuring a variety of characters, and a variety of narratives. It is 9 days until the start of...

    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...

    A congressman's daughter who has to be perfect. A star quarterback with a secret. A guy who's tired of being ignored. A clarinet player who's done trying to fit in. An orphaned rebel who wants to teach someone a lesson. A guy who wants people to see him, not his religion. Time bomb fol...

    [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...

    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...

    It's the week before High school starts and the school should be empty but for six people, they needed to get to the school a week before for their own reasons. We have Z, who is now homeless after his mother just passed away. Diane, the congressman's daughter who is in the school to...

    This book was so dark but so good. The twist at the end was so mind blowing and fantastic. ...
