Genre: Magical Realism, Time Travel
My Rating: DNF
I’m definitely an unpopular opinion (which isn’t surprising). I had been wanting to read this for weeks, and finally had an opportunity to get my hands on it through Scribd, which I’m loving at the moment!
Everyone on Instagram has been raving about it, and seems to be loving this one..except me! This was like finding out Santa and the tooth fairy aren’t real! Incredibly disappointing!
I don’t know if it was because audio was a poor choice for this one, or the story just wasn’t good, or a bit of both. But I thought Oona was whiney and annoying! The romance was cheesy in my opinion, and I was mainly just bored!
It’s a shame, cause I was sold on the whole time travel aspect.
Ugh..another overhyped book. 🤦♀️ I tried!
Have you read this one? Did you love it like everyone else?
Just because life might be out of order, doesn’t mean it’s broken.
It’s new years eve 1982, and Oona Lockhart has her whole life before her. At the stroke of midnight she will turn nineteen, and the year ahead promises to be one of consequence. Should she go to London to study economics, or follow her heart and remain at home in Brooklyn to be with her boyfriend? As the countdown to the new year begins, Oona feels lightheaded, woozy, and it’s not from the champagne. At the stroke of midnight Oona is torn from her life and everyone she loves, finding herself in her 51 year old body thirty-three years into the future. Greeted by a friendly stranger in a beautiful house she’s told is her own, Oona learns that will with each passing year she will leap to another age at random. Still a young woman on the inside, but ever changing on the outside, who will she be next year? Philanthropist? Club kid? World traveler? Wife to a man she’s never met?
Hopping through decades, and a lifetime Oona Out of Order is a surprising, magical novel that explores the power of love, the bonds of family, and the wonders of life.
