Great ideas, but not well executed.
All of the main characters were women, and this could have been so good. Sadly, the prose style was so plain as to be dull, and I just did not care about what was going to happen.
I loved this book! How do you deal with the psychology of time travel? The flexibility of concepts of death, predetermination and how the past and future impact each other? Dealing with mental illness, heartbreak, jealousy, grief, revenge… our protagonists learn that there is a whole lot more to jumping through time than just science and paradox. It is an amazing story that will tickle your fancy and tug at your heartstrings.
Just finished reading this. Was a very different Sci-fi read which I thoroughly enjoyed ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️
I went to the Elise Kova and Danielle Jensen signing in Calgary tonight. I got my entire Elise Kova library signed and picked up a few new books at the store. Game plan for tomorrow? GOING TO DETECTIVE PIKACHU!
Might squeeze in a couple of pages of my new book before I fall asleep ... 😴

A murder mystery with time travellers intermingling, maybe interfering is a better word, with the lives of people. The characters are well written and there is intrigue that kept me reading. I liked that the chapters were from different characters, this kept a good pace to thw story. There was something missing though and I haven't quite put my finger on it yet....

Here are a couple of time travel books that I really enjoyed. One is the start to a romance/mystery series. I only read the first book.
The other is a sci-fi time travel book that has a lot of POVs, switches between 2 timelines and is set around a mystery. This is the tagged book and it was really enjoyable!
Spent the day with my mom and sister today - Mexican food, pedicures, and TJ Maxx (where I got this super cute mug); then went to the LEGO movie with my son and husband. Now it‘s solo chill time with a book and some cinnamon tea (and, though not pictured, Chloe - she‘s on the floor playing with my hair elastic that she stole).
Today‘s library #bookhaul - TBR “B” authors plus two books from the new shelf. Pictured with what I ate for lunch at 3:00 today because it‘s been that kind of week at work. 😆 🍨
Well, this was pretty awesome! I love the mental gymnastics time travel stories demand of their readers & the not entirely unpleasant sensation of your mind happily boggling away at paradoxes, impossibilities & fantastically plausible concepts. This book has a plethora of female characters, a non gratuitous bittersweet same sex romance, a murder mystery & lashings of engrossing twists & turns. A lot of thought provoking notions about death ⬇️⬇️⬇️

Traversing the decades and told from alternating perspectives, The Psychology of Time Travel introduces a fabulous new voice in fiction and a new must-read for fans of speculative fiction and is a a mind-bending, time-travel debut.
Murder mystery, time travel, groundbreaking female scientists—I am 120% on board with this book. The beginning dragged a bit—too much announcing that things had happened rather than letting the story unfold. Luckily that faded once the mystery got going and the timelines more convoluted. It's a good and twisty story, with interesting questions about how you might feel about death when you're constantly visiting past and future selves and (con't)
Time Travel is a thing, but is it a good thing? And what does it do to those involved? This delves into this concept and explores power, ego, how they end up viewing life and death, and what control do you really have.
The start was a bit rocky, and it really took a bit for me to really get into the story.
Thanks to NetGalley for a copy in exchange for an unbiased review.
2) Currently 😍
3) Nah, not keen on them. Told myself I'd do ALL the things in 2019, anyway. 😂
4) I don't even have Netflix 😕😂 Norsemen is on top of the list rn, but tbh I don't know if it's a Netflix or HBO-show. Or something else 🤔 edit: it's available on Netflix 😂
This book was really good. It wasn‘t too heavy and scientific when talking about time travel. So knowing nothing about science, I wasn‘t ever lost. There are a lot of jumping from different point of views and timelines, but I was never lost or confused. The story seemed to flow well even though there was so many alternating timelines. I like how at one point in the story or the other, all the characters were connected.

This woman-led time travel murder mystery has many charms, its exploration of the psychological and (corporate) cultural impacts of time travel, its glossary of time travel slang, its twists and turns, but most of all, this novel has true, red-blooded women at its core, women of diverse color and sexuality capable not only of inventing time travel but of reinvention, regret, revenge, love, sacrifice, cruelty, the running of corporations, and more.
This is a fascinating, rich novel of intrigue and wonder. Written with a beautiful and timely prose and message this speculative fiction and murder mystery at its best.
Get This Feb 2019.
Thanks to Crooked Lane and net galley for this ARC

I've had The Psychology of Time Travel on my wishlist since reviews of it started appearing on blogs a while ago. A time travel story populated almost exclusively with women, and it's a mystery to boot? Yes please! I was gripped from the beginning. I especially loved the way in which time travel develops into an industry complete with its own psychometric tests, slang and cliques.
I am so impressed how Kate Mascarenhas wove this story together!!! She incorporated time travel, almost all female characters, and in her story of time travel they can see versions of themselves past or present. She also had characters interact with progeny of the first four women scientists that created time travel. Quick chapters, whodunnit, a lgbqt relationship, some new time travel vernacular...
