Amazing. Spans 3 timelines with related characters-post WW1, Dustbowl of the 30s, and 2065. And, folks, Galapagos the tortoise has seen it all❤️ Really a beautiful read. Highly recommend.

At the 40% mark on this one and really enjoying it. I‘ve been on a real YA kick...love it! It‘s funny how as a teen I read all adult books bc there was really very little teen material and now as an adult (ok, senior-I‘ll admit, still can‘t wrap my head around my age), I‘ve found a plethora of great books in YA!

BookFrog I love YA as well. I am not young either. 9mo
Melissa_J I also read adult books as a teen for the same reason, although I think at the time I probably still would have chosen to read adult fiction rather than YA had it been available. I do enjoy YA fantasy now, although I can‘t usually stand contemporary YA since I can‘t relate to the characters. 9mo
KristinaRay I read more YA as an adult than I ever did as a teen. I was one of those teens who was snobby about teen stuff; I always wanted to act older than I was. So even if there had been a great selection of YA back then, I probably would have avoided them over principle. 🙄 9mo

JanuarieTimewalker13 @KristinaRay I get it!! I was the same way...we had some teen books but I went for The Exorcist and Looking For Mr. Goodbar....yikes!!! Lol 9mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Melissa_J yes, I understand that. For me, it brings me back to teen years, and I really wish we had some of the hard hitters like Speak when I was young...also, books like The Boyfriend List would‘ve greatly helped me bc I knew nothing about the male gender, lol 9mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @Slajaunie yes, it‘s a wonderful age classification with great reads! I learn from them...and some are so borderline, they can be adult also!! 9mo
Bette You're not the only one. There are so many good YA books out there. Love 'em! (edited) 9mo
RaimeyGallant That looks like my cat! :) 9mo
JanuarieTimewalker13 @RaimeyGallant awhhh! Her name is XENA, Warrior Princess...I always try to use all caps bc she‘s a force...lol...so sweet, but still a warrior🐾❤️ 9mo

Adri is a teenage, orphan training to be a Mars colonist. During the last months of training, she learns she has an elderly cousin Lily that she will be staying with until she leaves Earth. In Lily‘s home, Adri finds a journal from Catherine (1934) and letters from Lenore to Beth (1919). As she pores through the writings, Adri uncovers a forgotten chain of events. She also discovers her own feelings that have been locked away for most of her life.

Redy2trvl I originally chose this book for what I thought would be a science fiction story. That is not at all what this story is about. That was disappointing, but Adri‘s personal exploration into the past made up for it. I would have liked more backstory and depth of characters. This is between a pick and so-so for me. (edited) 13mo

Although the story is not what I expected, I am flying through this read. Can‘t wait to see how it ends.

If I had known when I started this book that it was the same author as the Vanishing Season, I probably would not have read it.Not a full resolution.The midnight electric was barely part of the book and I had expected it to be more involved; it could have been removed completely and there would still be a story line, minus the resolution of course. The characters were developed well enough but the story wasn't. Something missing. Almost pan.

Received this ebook after taking a teacher survey. Same author as Tiger Lily, which I read a while ago but didn‘t love. Enjoyed the stories of the intertwined lives of several women from before and during the Dust Bowl era through to the future.

I never read in bed (other than at night), but after a week of hard emotional and physical work and a busy day at YALLfest yesterday, I'm loving the luxury of my cozy mattress. I just finished this book, which is a lovely intergenerational story, and the colors on the cover are 👌.

Knocked this month‘s YA book club pick as an audio book on my long drive home today. The cover of this really doesn‘t give an accurate impression of what this book is actually about. I think it was a solid 3 out of 5. Thanks to Libro.fm for the free bookseller ALC of this.

This was a 3/5 star read. It was good, but not great. I loved the historical component of this dual time story, but the contemporary (in this case futuristic) timeline was lacking. The author could have done a lot more with the Mars mission part of the plot and I wish she would have. That said, it was enjoyable and I wanted to see what happened to the historical characters. Overall, I'd recommend.

thereadingunicorn What app is this ? 2y
Rachael5248 It is called Bookling. It is a fun way to track your reading. While in the app you have to manually put in titles and page counts, which I don't particularly care for. However, there are so many other fun/amazing features....such as achievements, goal markers, and reading alarms, etc. I love this app because of the achievements I receive because it motivates me to read.

This is what our reviewer had to say about #MidnightattheElectric, " Jodi Lynn Anderson gives us three strong female friendships bound together by history and a tortoise. She shows us familial, romantic and friendly love. Most of all, she is not above choosing what is right for the characters rather than what the reader would want."

This story takes you everywhere in a beautiful, family tree way it all connects. I didn't want this story to end but then suddenly it did. My only complaint is that this was just too short. I'm left wanting more. And now I want a gollapagoz tortoise for a pet. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is told from the perspectives of Adri in 2065 Kansas, Catherine in 1934 Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl, and Lenore in 1919 England after WWI. Their stories intertwine and come together beautifully. It's a quick read/listen and the audiobook is performed by three narrators.

An amazing story that kicks off in the year 2065 (where apparently we're colonizing Mars!) and through letters and journals, you're thrown to England in 1919 and the Dust Bowl in Kansas in 1934. The way all of the characters & stories are connected through time is truly magical. I legit cried for the last 20 pages because I just loved all of the characters so much. I also might've just started rereading it immediately after finishing it. 🤷🏼‍♀️💕
