Blog Tour & Giveaway: Glitch [Lost in Time 01] by Brenda Pandos!


 Publication date: 24th February 2014
Paperback edition: -
Source: Kindle
Rating: 4 stars
Synopsis: Perfect world. Lies. Blue eyes.

When a mysterious guy from the forbidden zone sneaks an illegal slip of paper to a beautiful young girl from Brighton, she must decide if she should turn him in or follow what the note says.

Eighteen-year-old Abigail has no trouble following Brighton’s rules. For one, she’s OCD about checking her Date of Death clock latched to her wrist, making sure her decisions never shorten her timeline, and two, she enjoys the peace Brighton has to offer. In no way would she bring on another attack that destroyed earth’s inhabitants. But when her best friend returns from her Advice Meeting--a glimpse into the future--shocked and won’t tell Abby what’s happened, Abby is worried what awaits her glimpse. The stranger with blue eyes knows something, but does Abby dare enter the forbidden zone to get answers? Or is she doomed to live the life set in her glimpse?


I was seriously looking forward to this book once I heard it had zombies in it, but imagine my surprise when I start reading it and there were minimal zombies in it! I was kinda disappointed lol! I was expecting a zombie apocalypse or something lol! So in fairness, the plot of this book was very different to what I was expecting, but I really enjoyed it! This book was about time travel, which I normally don't like in books, romance and a little bit of zombies added into the mix! Yes, the zombies came into it near the end lol! The plot was pretty fast-paced and really interesting! It was also very unique! I don't think I've read anything quite like it before, which made me enjoy it that little bit more! There were also plenty of twist and turns to keep me wanting to read on and find out what was going to happen next! I do have to say that the plot did kind of confuse me during the big scene at the end! I felt there was a lot in it and I found myself having to read every word to understand it all! This could just have been me though lol! I loved the plot though and I loved how unique it was! The characters were amazing! Abby was the main character and she was kinda kick-ass in this book! Well, from about 70% onwards! At the beginning of this book, Abby thought she was safe and living in a secure environment, but it was all false! She was the person in the most danger and it only took one guy to show her just how much danger she was in! Abbey always sort of knew that something wasn't quite right where she was living, but she didn't know just how messed up it was! I really enjoyed Abby's character! I thought she handled all the information that was thrown at her really well and she threw herself into the firing line to protect the people she loved and cared for, which is something I really admired about her! Kaden was the love interest of Abbey and he was so freaking cute! I just adored him! I loved how protective he was of Abby and I could see that he had strong feelings for her! Kaden revealed some secrets about his relationship with Abbey in this book and I can say that I didn't see them coming! I definitely think it strengthened his relationship with Abbey though! Kaden was such a sweet guy and he showed this again and again in this book! I also loved that he risked his life and exposing his people to warn Abbey of the danger she was in! That was so hot! There was also a bit of a love triangle in this book between Abby, Kaden and Kaden's brother, Memphis, but it didn't last the full book, which I loved! It added a lot to the plot though and I was Team Kaden all the way through this book! I thought Memphis was an okay character until he showed his true colours! I'm excited to read the next book in this series! I know that this book wasn't what I expected, but I can't wait to see what's going to happen next and how things are going to develop! Plus, the ending of this book was a pretty big cliff-hanger! The cover for this book is absolutely stunning! It's actually what first attracted me to it! The colouring and the whole cover suits the book perfectly! Big thank you to Brenda for a copy of Glitch and also for having me on her Blog Tour!
