The highly anticipated sequel to Anomaly will be released the summer of 2017!
Worst. Road Trip. Ever.
Escaping with Reid Wentworth should have been fun, but how can I enjoy it when I just (accidentally) killed someone, my mom and brother are in danger, and the Consortium is trying to enslave humanity? (Yeah, they aren’t fooling around.) So feeling something for Reid Wentworth was not part of the plan. Trying to help unite the Resistance against the Consortium means I can’t be distracted by hot boys.
The Resistance secret hideout isn’t exactly the rebel base of my dreams. A traitor there wants me dead, but we have no idea who it is. And with both the Resistance and the Consortium trying to control me, the only one I can trust is Reid. If we’re going to have any chance of protecting my family, controlling my unstable powers, and surviving the clash between the Oculi factions, I’m going to have to catch this traitor. By using myself as bait.

One of the first things that really caught my attention was the amazing character development that Josie went through. In book 1 she was quite naive and innocent but straight away from this book, Josie's character is trying to deal with the consequences of what happened at the end of book 1. She's shaken and quite confused about herself but she works through it and even though she retains that nerdiness we all love, she seriously becomes badass! She's also a really compassionate to the other characters in the book and it made her look quite mature!



The best part about Josie was that she never tried to change who she was, she OWNED being a science/fangirl! She never even thought about changing who she was or anything and that to me was her greatest strength. And part of why Reid and Josie work so well together is not only because Reid acknowledges who Josie is as a person but he accepts it, loves it and even admires her tenacity to never loose herself.


Tonya Kuper (lol that just auto corrected to Super-which is fitting) really upped the stakes in this book! much more action, a really fast and gripping pace that would not let go of you. Though at times it did feel like the romance took the limelight from the plot because of the whole "forbidden romance" thing but the intensity of the plot was always looming in the background. I won't spoil anything but the danger level is HIGH.




Reid my beautiful Reid was just as sweet in the book as he was in the first! I was literally swooning every time he would talk about keeping Josie safe. That was his top priority at all times and you could just feel how much he loved her! He's unrelentless concern for Josie was throughout his POV and he found all her nerdy refs adorable!! #BoyfriendGoals!

Josie, if possible, got even more hilarious! I found myself nodding and agreeing with all her fandom references. This is a total fangirl!

I really enjoyed the whole power aspect of the book, the superpowers were original and it kept you entertained because it's not something you've seen before in any YA book. I'm not always a scientist-fi fan, I tend to lean more towards fantasy, but I can't explain how unique and awesome this book was! Definitely one of the best books I've read this year!

The ending was nothing short of spectacular! What a whirlwind seriously. I hope, really really hope that we get a spin off because I see a lot of possibilities here! We don't usually see a lot of duologies in YA and this book was meant as a trilogy at first. But I have to say, I'm so happy this is a duology!  There was great pacing throughout the two books and maybe a third book would have lost my attention at some point so I'm super happy with the author's decision! Great conclusion to this duology!

ANOMALY BOOK REVIEW

Anomaly (Schrodinger's Consortium, #1)TITLE: Anomaly
AUTHOR: Tonya Kuper
SERIES: Schrodinger's Consortium series
PUBLICATION DATE: November 25 2014
PUBLISHER: Entangled Teen
SOURCE: Review copy from Publisher


Reality is only an illusion.
Except for those who can control it…
Worst. Birthday. Ever.

My first boyfriend dumped me—happy birthday, Josie!—my dad is who knows where, I have some weird virus that makes me want to hurl, and now my ex is licking another girl’s tonsils. Oh, and I’m officially the same age as my brother was when he died. Yeah, today is about as fun-filled as the swamps of Dagobah. But then weird things start happening…
Like I make something materialize just by thinking about it.
When hottily-hot badass Reid Wentworth shows up on a motorcycle, everything changes. Like, everything. Who I am. My family. What really happened to my brother. Existence. I am Oculi, and I have the ability to change reality with my thoughts. Now Reid, in all his hotness, is charged with guiding and protecting me as I begin learning how to bend reality. And he’s the only thing standing between me and the secret organization that wants me dead…





Josie had the typical life-sucks thing going on until bad boy Reid shows up on a motorcycle intent of convincing her she has special powers. When the evidence gets to strong to ignore, Josie is thrust into the unknown of the Oculi world with a target on her back. Her consolation prize? A hot trainer. But as Reid and Josie train, their feelings for each other grow but things are standing in their way.  Like a certain society motivated to kill Josie. Suddenly, her brother's death doesn't seem so unconnected to her new life after all and with a traitor in the midst, Josie has no choice but to do everything in her power to stay alive and uncover the secrets that have been surrounding her life.




There are two types of Oculi-Pushers and retractors. Pushers can kind of manifest things and Retractors can make things disappear but they can't mess with things that have a soul. Then there's the Anomaly which can do both manifest and retract things. I know the science of it all may sound a little boring but it's actually a really exciting read!! Josie and Reid are anomalies which makes them powerful and dangerous. 



I loved Josie mostly because she's a total nerd as much as I was and I got all her Star Wars/Big Bang Theory references and she was unapologetic of her character.  BUT I have to say the author took a risk with all those fandom references because not everyone would get what Josie is talking about. In a way it completed the whole "nerd" aspect of the character the author was trying really hard to portray but I think it was the only way the reader could connect with Josie. If you don't get all her refs then you might not really connect with her.




Reid was awesome! There was a lot of mystery surrounding him especially because he kept hinting that he knew Rosie from before. It was obvious that he liked her and despite the bad boy persona he was still super sweet and affectionate.

There were some pretty shocking twists and Tonya Kuper's writing was amazing! Though it was a pretty stereotypical YA novel so I guess the premiss might not be for people who've read loads and loads of YA books. But it was definitely an entertaining read and for someone who's just jumping on the YA train, this book would be perfect!


Entangled Teen definitely has some of the best titles out there! I've included the trailer below if any of you guys wanna check it out and my review of book 2 will be on my tour date which is on the 6th of July of June so be sure to check it out!
