Oona Out of Order This was a great book I wasn t sure if I would like this book Reading the premise I immediately thought of the old show Quantum Leap This was so much better than expected Oona was a great character I was fully invested in her story and wanted to just keep readingandI don t want to give anything away Just know that I would absolutely recommend this as a must read to my book pals Wow what a book The perfect blend of angst, romance, pop culture, and time travel When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued, sounded like such a fun concept And while this book was a lot of fun it was SO muchThought provoking and emotional The book really gave you lots to think about, what would you do if you were in Oona s shoes Are there parts of your past you would change, even if it altered your future There was also muchemotional depth to this story than I was a Wow what a book The perfect blend of angst, romance, pop culture, and time travel When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued, sounded like such a fun concept And while this book was a lot of fun it was SO muchThought provoking and emotional The book really gave you lots to think about, what would you do if you were in Oona s shoes Are there parts of your past you would change, even if it altered your future There was also muchemotional depth to this story than I was anticipating I might have shed a few tears There were also lots of fun pop culture references that really gave you the perfect sense of time with each time shift Oona is a typical 18 year old celebrating New Year s Eve Trying to figure life out Is she going to move to London and pursue her much desired finance career Or stay home with her boyfriend and follow her musical dreams But on New Year s Eve while at 11 59 Oona is 18 at midnight she is 51 Oona soon finds out that every year on New Year s Eve she will jump forward or backwards in time, never knowing what age she will be next There is so much I want to say, but I don t want to ruin this for anybody Oona was such a likable character and I really did feel for her However she did frustrate me at times, I had to remind myself that her actual age was not the age that she was living Imagine navigating your 40s as a teenager Some of the time travel concepts may not have been plausible, but I didn t care I was completely caught up in Oona s life This was a story I did not want to end, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that there is a follow up The audiobook was narrated by Brittany Pressley Who is one of the best and did a marvelous job You might think a story that bounces around like this one would be hard to follow on audio, but I can assure you it definitely was not.This book in emojis Big thank you to Flatiron, Macmillan Audio, libro.fm for my gifted copy of this book All opinions are my own 4.5 stars.As if life isn t complicated enough without time travel How long til my soul gets it right Indigo Girls, Galileo NYC, 1982 It s New Year s Eve At

study economics in London or should she stay and perform with the band But regardless of what she chooses to do, she knows it s going to 4.5 stars.As if life isn t complicated enough without time travel How long til my soul gets it right Indigo Girls, Galileo NYC, 1982 It s New Year s Eve At midnight, Oona will turn 19 She s exactly where she wants to be at a party with her beloved boyfriend and friends, and their band is about to perform She has a tough decision to make should she go study economics in London or should she stay and perform with the band But regardless of what she chooses to do, she knows it s going to be a great year.Then the clock strikes midnightand when she wakes up she s 51 years old She s told by a friendly stranger that she has a condition where on the cusp of the new year every year, she leaps either forward or backward in time.This discovery is bewildering for Oona She tries to understand all that has changed in her world and the world around her, and as she connects with the constants in her life she tries to figure out how to spend the time until she can hopefully make it back to that night in 1982 Oona Out of Order follows Oona as she travels back and forth through her life Guided by advice from her previous self, advice she sometimes takes and sometimes ignores, she makes some big mistakes and some shocking discoveries Ultimately she realizes the things she can and cannot change, and is buoyed by a series of loves.This is a poignant, moving, tremendously thought provoking book that is so beautifully written I love books about time travel, especially those which deal with the emotional aspects rather than the scientific There were so many wondrous moments to be found here.I really enjoyed this and loved the characters, including the supporting characters, so much I felt like it dragged a bit in the middle maybe one too many leaps through time, even though each one addeddepth to her story , but I couldn t stop reading because I needed to know how Margarita Monti would tie things up This is one I won t soon forget.Check out my list of the best books I read in 2019 at Check out my list of the best books of the decade at all of

in giving this only 3 stars I have to admit I am really disappointed It started out very strong, my interest was held and then it just fizzled right out You ve all seen the plot summary an 18 year old

one Oona drove me crazy Well, I saw enough like minded reviews not to feel too absurd in giving this only 3 stars I have to admit I am really disappointed It started out very strong, my interest was held and then it just fizzled right out You ve all seen the plot summary an 18 year old leaps into the future or past every year on New Year s Day which also happens to be her birthday I thought this was incredibly unique and couldn t wait to begin However, with each leap I grew increasingly frustrated with Oona and didn t care for many of the other characters either The reason Oona really annoyed me was because I was real fed up with her terrible decision making skills I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt because she was in her early to mid 20s through most of the book despite whatever age she leapt to was , but she was just a whiny brat through almost everything There was only one real instance where I felt bad for her Edward , but the whole Kenzie situation was completely over the top I just couldn t understand that one That s when the book really lost me I also was a little frustrated with the lack of explanation into the why behind most of this I m not someone who needs to have everything explained perfectly and I m capable of suspending disbelief , but it just kind of confused me as to why we wouldn t even bother a little to discuss anything having to do with this condition My last point is that I was very emotionally disconnected from all of this I didn t feel the highs or the lows I was mostly just a passive observer I m not sure if it was because I disliked all the characters or what, but I just didn t connect the way I wanted to I also thought some of the dialogue was really cheesy Wow, I guess I m really going there in this review Despite all that, I really liked the premise a lot My wish is that it could have been executed better I thought it was an extremely creative idea and the first two points in time that were covered I was HOOKED I think this is really a case of right book wrong person and I urge you to consider my review, but also take into account the many other reviewers who simply loved it I think anytime I give a middle of the road review I try and think if I would read another book from the author again If I would then it s an overall positive rating If I wouldn t, then I give it below a 3 Because I plan to give the author another chance, I give this a 3 star rating.Thanks to Libro.fm for providing an ALC for me to listen to when I didn t have the book handy I enjoyed the narrator and thought she did a great job I do think a book that jumps around in time is better off being read in person so as to cut out any confusion with where you are in time so you can flip back, etc when picking it back up again , but not anything that ruins the experience My last thanks goes to the Buffalo Library for providing the physical copy.Review Date 03 21 2020Publication Date 02 25 2020 Oona Out of Order by Margarita Monti 9

laugh track of fake audience members I mean that exactly as you re thinking I mean it Now here we go with my unpopular opinion This book was somewhat entertaining, but it was a lil too cheesy for me All of the characters, including Oona, have the exact same sense of wit There isn t much variety between the characters personalities, which left me a little bored Don t get it twisted I love a good sarcastic character, but this element only works if there s contrast between characters and if the sarcasm is reserved for select characters The plot had way too many holes Time travel is obviously fictional, but authors like Blake Crouch know how to craft the concept and still make it seem believable Monti left a lot of questions regarding the logistics of how Oona s time travel worked or why it occurred.I felt like the author danced around a few potential themes, but never fully took advantage of any of them With the lack of a theme, the progression of the storyline felt almost pointless There were also a few moments that were pivotal for Oona, but the emotions never actually came Perhaps this book just wasn t for me, so I ll give it 2.5 stars Have you read this one Thoughts What
