“Are you you without your memories? If not, who do you become?”


(This is a review of an advance reading copy. All details are subject to change.)

Invictus honestly had one of the coolest concepts I’d ever heard. It was also compared to Guardians of the Galaxy, which is my favorite movie of all time, so needless to say, I went in with extremely high expectations. It wasn’t quite what I expected it to be, but I enjoyed it nonetheless. The story takes place in the distant future (the year 2371) after time travel has been discovered and follows a crew of teens who are hired by a black market dealer to obtain long-lost items from the past. Far, the captain of the crew, is infamous for being born in a place “outside of time” while his mother was time travelling. The crew also includes Priya, a doctor, Gram, an engineer, Imogen, a historian, and a mysterious girl who changes everything for them. Their travels take them to the Titanic, the Library of Alexandria, Ancient Rome, and more.

A Map for Wrecked Girls by Jessica Taylor: Review


“Henri said our names were fitting because we were destined to be together in our old age, like our great-great-aunts. Two gray old ladies in the bodies of teenage girls. Someday we’d live in a big house with faded curtains, a dozen or so cats, and a handful of our marbles long ago lost. On all accounts—our destiny, her clairvoyance, and our soon-to-be missing marbles—I believed her.”
