Six months ago, tech giant Aether Corporation sent Elena Martinez and a group of skilled teens thirty years into the future on a secret mission. Now the surviving time-travelers including Elena and her boyfriend, Adam are trying to get on with their lives back in the present. But Aether Corporation isn't done with Elena or her friends, and they've been drafted into another trip thirty years ahead to find other time-travelers who have gone missing. 

Why I'm waiting on this one!

I have just finished reading the first book in this new, VERY exciting series! It's titled Future Shock, and I absolutely LOVED it!!! In fact, when I finished reading it, I felt as if I had just seen THE MOVIE VERSION. And believe me, this book -- and, I'm sure, the entire series, as well -- has GOT to get to the big screen! That's because the book has a BADA** Hispanic heroine, the plot is HIGHLY intriguing,
and heck, ALL of the characters really ROCK!! Plus, they all have diverse backgrounds! Stay tuned for my review, which is coming very soon!! And I can't wait to read this sequel!!

The first book in the series!!

What do you think of my choice?
Leave your link below, so I can
come check out your pick(s)!


  1. Is that then 60 years of time travelling? I love an author who writes visually, so you can totally *see* what they're talking about!

    1. Hi, Verushka!

      Actually, in the first book they went forward thirty years, but then returned to the present. So I think that, in this second book, they again start from the present, and once more go forward the same thirty years.

      I agree -- I love authors who write visually, too! That's why I felt that I had watched a movie, after reading this book! But it's also because we REALLY get to know the characters. I felt as if I were right there with them, going through everything they went through.

      Bottom line, I have a new series to love!!!

      Thanks for commenting back!! Hope you have a GREAT day!! <3 :)

  2. I still need to read Future Shock but I could immediately tell when I saw the cover what series it belonged to. Glad to hear you enjoyed the first one as well.

    1. Hi, Barb!

      Yes, the covers are consistent, which is something I love in a series!

      You've got to read this series, Barb! I'm sure you'll greatly enjoy it! "Future Shock" was totally 'unpudownable'!!!

      Thanks for the comment!! <3 :)

  3. I've had my eye on Future Shock for awhile now and with this second one coming out, maybe I should move it up on my TBR pile. This sounds so good! Thank you for sharing, Maria!

    1. Hi, Wendy!

      I think it's a great idea, moving "Future Shock" up on your TBR pile. This book is AMAZING!! I know you won't be able to put id down, once you start reading it!

      I first saw "Future Shock" on the blog A Belle's Tales, on which two of my blogging buddies write -- Michele and her daughter, Mckenzie. I'm SO glad I decided to jump in and read this novel!!

      You're very welcome for the share! Thanks for commenting!! <3 :)

  4. I enjoyed the first book too and have been anticipating the sequel. March seems so far away and that blurb has me hyped. Thanks for sharing. Hope we'll enjoy the second book once we get to read it :)

    Happy Wednesday!
