    To me, the hardest part about being a book blogger is when you find a book that feels like it could have worked for you, but somehow, it just didn?t quite make it?and then trying to review that book in actual, coherent words and phrases, when all you really know how to do is kind o...

    THIS. BOOK. I was obsessed with this book from about 10 pages in. The story is thrilling and there may in fact be a new twist in every single chapter. Our main character Camryn deeply loves her mom, dad, and brother Kyle. She deals with true Panic Disorder and works so hard for tha...

    I don't read a lot of sci-fi, but after reading the synopsis of this gorgeous book, I just had to check it out! I'm so glad I did! From the very first page, I was hooked, and I found myself reading this gem of a book in almost one sitting. All of my theories were completely wrong and a...

    **I received an ARC of this - thank you so much to Page Street Publishing but it didn't change my opinion at all** There was nothing really wrong with this book, but I think a lot of things compiled together to make it a bit messy and cliche and something that I wasn't vibing with. ...

    I very much have a ?what did I just read? feeling about this book but I still think I enjoyed it. I?m happy where it ended even though the middle was confusing as hell. ...

    A cataclysmic explosion destroys Camryn's world; she survives when she's not supposed to, and the only constant in the chaos is a bespectacled boy who may or may not actually exist. AFTERIMAGE, Naomi Hughes' debut sci-fi thriller, is a page-turner with twists and turns that will lea...

    Oh, my gosh - this book. I had the pleasure of reading an early version of AFTERIMAGE and it killed me dead. Then I got to read the ARC which also killed me dead. The ghost of my ghost is writing this review for you. AFTERIMAGE is teeming with fast-paced, heart-pounding acti...

    Rated 2.5 really. Fast-paced and full of turns, this one would make a great adult sci-fi book set in a distant future (minus the weird-instalove part). The problem is, as a teen's adventure set in our time-frame, and in our good old reality, it doesn't hold. Both the science and the...

    I loved this YA thriller! Calling it a thriller is oversimplifying. Whether you're a fan of ghost stories and the paranormal, a science-fiction fan, or a reader of conspiracy thrillers, this book is for you. A very original take on the YA thriller genre, very smart, and full of unantic...

    A heart-pounding thrill ride that explores how far we'd go to fix our mistakes - and what it means to face them. Beautifully written and hauntingly real, this book is one that stayed with me long after I turned the last page. **I read an early copy of this, and cannot WAIT to see it...

    I absolutely loved this book! I read it through an ARC program and will definitely be buying myself a copy when it comes out. The storytelling and writing style captures the reader and draws you in. Because neither Quint nor Camryn know what is happening, and the suspense and life ...

    Thank you to Page Street Publishing for a copy of the ARC in exchange for a fair review. Camryn is working through her panic disorder, and her mom is talking it her through it when she finally makes it on base to pick her mom up from work. However, Camryn never makes it into the b...

    Naomi Hughes weaves a powerful thriller that kept me on edge the entire time. I'm not necessary a huge fan of science fiction, but it was the perfect amount that I could follow/understand and held my interest. Hughes puts us in the narrator's head so well, that it is truly hard to ...

    This one had me from the first page. The standout for me was the character of Camryn, who has some real obstacles to both overcome and manage, but confronts each of them with gusto and spirit and a touch of vulnerability. Loved the writing--again, Camryn's voice!--but the plot was equa...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, for all that the book was nonstop action, sometimes it still felt like not a lot was actually happening. Also, the science was sometimes hard to understand (but then it always is for me in sci-fi books that deal with alternate time...

    I really enjoyed this book and actually finished it last week -- I thought I had added it here, but apparently not. Afterimage was one of those books for me that sucked me in from the first chapter and held my attention to the very end. It was different, exciting, and the overall story...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on my toes, every time I thought I knew what was going on, the author took a turn I did not expect. I was intrigued straight through to the end. It's an imaginative original story with a great, believable protagonist. Highly recommend!! ...

    Dit is een heel apart verhaal. Er is geen bladzijde rust en bijna alle mogelijke sci fi kenmerken worden gecombineerd. Dit zorgde er wel voor dat dit boek alles behalve saai was! Lastig weg te leggen maar net iets te onrustig om door te lezen. Erg lastig :p 3.7/5 (of een 4- maar net...

    This book had me intrigued from the very beginning. It is full of action, twists and turns. I just kept needing to know what would happen next. I also loved the mystery surrounding Camryn and Quint. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Afterimage is a science fiction book with a lot of heart, intrigue, and a fantastic main character. Camryn has this wonderful resilience in her. She suffers from...

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher/Saichek Publicity in exchange for a honest review. I had high expectations for Afterimage but it fell short when the story took a turn towards Sci-Fi. I?m all for Sci-Fi but the synopsis promised a Dystopian novel, and that w...

    I feel like this is one of those books that's hard to talk about without giving too much away. I really enjoyed the book as a whole, there's a lot going on and when you start getting to the twists it just amps it up. The science and way things go is really intriguing, and the character...

    Camryn suffers from panic/anxiety disorder. One day she is trying to overcome it and go inside the science facility where her mom is waiting for her when a horrible explosion occurs. The explosion kills her mom and many other people and also leaves Camryn seeing an after image of a you...

    This was a nice read! The story was intriguing and the characters were compelling! I loved the inclusion of mental health issues (and not just as a plot device) and I haven?t seen this type of story a ton, which was refreshing! I really liked the dialogue between the MC and Quint,...

    See full review here: https://wordpress.com/posts/booksinth... Overall, Afterimage by Naomi Hughes was a nonstop adventure with twists and turns that I didn?t see coming. While the writing is decent, it was really the story that swept me away. The buildup of the characters was don...

    Afterimage is a YA science-fiction thriller that includes a major plot line regarding alternate timelines. The problem that I had with the book was, from the outset, blame was placed on a certain individual with no explanation as to how the authorities arrived at their conclusion. By u...

    Overall, I enjoyed this novel. There were a few twists that were great surprises, and I was into the premise/plot. The only reason I took a star away was because of the romance/Quint. I never truly felt the development of that relationship; it felt forced. Part of that is probably beca...

    I picked up this book because it has the same title as one of my own and when I read the synopsis it sounded like it might be the same story as mine. Oddly the many worlds theory is used in both this book and my own but the stories surrounding that theory are wildly different. I ended ...

    I've been meaning to read this for a while, and almost got my hands on an ARC. I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the characters, and the action and twists were rampant and exciting. I have to warn you, it can be a little much to sort out after a few chapters, but hang on for the ride as it a...

    In Afterimage, Hughes blends thriller and science fiction tropes to form an original mashup. While Camryn's struggle with her anxiety disorder kicks off the action without overwhelming the story, the uber-high stakes are deftly counterbalanced by Camryn's thorny relationships with fami...

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher/Saichek Publicity in exchange for a honest review. I had high expectations for Afterimage but it fell short when the story took a turn towards Sci-Fi. I?m all for Sci-Fi but the synopsis promised a Dystopian novel, and that w...

    I very much have a ?what did I just read? feeling about this book but I still think I enjoyed it. I?m happy where it ended even though the middle was confusing as hell. ...

    A cataclysmic explosion destroys Camryn's world; she survives when she's not supposed to, and the only constant in the chaos is a bespectacled boy who may or may not actually exist. AFTERIMAGE, Naomi Hughes' debut sci-fi thriller, is a page-turner with twists and turns that will lea...

    Oh, my gosh - this book. I had the pleasure of reading an early version of AFTERIMAGE and it killed me dead. Then I got to read the ARC which also killed me dead. The ghost of my ghost is writing this review for you. AFTERIMAGE is teeming with fast-paced, heart-pounding acti...

    Rated 2.5 really. Fast-paced and full of turns, this one would make a great adult sci-fi book set in a distant future (minus the weird-instalove part). The problem is, as a teen's adventure set in our time-frame, and in our good old reality, it doesn't hold. Both the science and the...

    I loved this YA thriller! Calling it a thriller is oversimplifying. Whether you're a fan of ghost stories and the paranormal, a science-fiction fan, or a reader of conspiracy thrillers, this book is for you. A very original take on the YA thriller genre, very smart, and full of unantic...

    A heart-pounding thrill ride that explores how far we'd go to fix our mistakes - and what it means to face them. Beautifully written and hauntingly real, this book is one that stayed with me long after I turned the last page. **I read an early copy of this, and cannot WAIT to see it...

    I absolutely loved this book! I read it through an ARC program and will definitely be buying myself a copy when it comes out. The storytelling and writing style captures the reader and draws you in. Because neither Quint nor Camryn know what is happening, and the suspense and life ...

    Thank you to Page Street Publishing for a copy of the ARC in exchange for a fair review. Camryn is working through her panic disorder, and her mom is talking it her through it when she finally makes it on base to pick her mom up from work. However, Camryn never makes it into the b...

    Naomi Hughes weaves a powerful thriller that kept me on edge the entire time. I'm not necessary a huge fan of science fiction, but it was the perfect amount that I could follow/understand and held my interest. Hughes puts us in the narrator's head so well, that it is truly hard to ...

    This one had me from the first page. The standout for me was the character of Camryn, who has some real obstacles to both overcome and manage, but confronts each of them with gusto and spirit and a touch of vulnerability. Loved the writing--again, Camryn's voice!--but the plot was equa...

    I feel like this is one of those books that's hard to talk about without giving too much away. I really enjoyed the book as a whole, there's a lot going on and when you start getting to the twists it just amps it up. The science and way things go is really intriguing, and the character...

    Camryn suffers from panic/anxiety disorder. One day she is trying to overcome it and go inside the science facility where her mom is waiting for her when a horrible explosion occurs. The explosion kills her mom and many other people and also leaves Camryn seeing an after image of a you...

    This was a nice read! The story was intriguing and the characters were compelling! I loved the inclusion of mental health issues (and not just as a plot device) and I haven?t seen this type of story a ton, which was refreshing! I really liked the dialogue between the MC and Quint,...

    See full review here: https://wordpress.com/posts/booksinth... Overall, Afterimage by Naomi Hughes was a nonstop adventure with twists and turns that I didn?t see coming. While the writing is decent, it was really the story that swept me away. The buildup of the characters was don...

    Afterimage is a YA science-fiction thriller that includes a major plot line regarding alternate timelines. The problem that I had with the book was, from the outset, blame was placed on a certain individual with no explanation as to how the authorities arrived at their conclusion. By u...

    Overall, I enjoyed this novel. There were a few twists that were great surprises, and I was into the premise/plot. The only reason I took a star away was because of the romance/Quint. I never truly felt the development of that relationship; it felt forced. Part of that is probably beca...

    I picked up this book because it has the same title as one of my own and when I read the synopsis it sounded like it might be the same story as mine. Oddly the many worlds theory is used in both this book and my own but the stories surrounding that theory are wildly different. I ended ...

    I've been meaning to read this for a while, and almost got my hands on an ARC. I enjoyed it a lot. I liked the characters, and the action and twists were rampant and exciting. I have to warn you, it can be a little much to sort out after a few chapters, but hang on for the ride as it a...

    To me, the hardest part about being a book blogger is when you find a book that feels like it could have worked for you, but somehow, it just didn?t quite make it?and then trying to review that book in actual, coherent words and phrases, when all you really know how to do is kind o...

    THIS. BOOK. I was obsessed with this book from about 10 pages in. The story is thrilling and there may in fact be a new twist in every single chapter. Our main character Camryn deeply loves her mom, dad, and brother Kyle. She deals with true Panic Disorder and works so hard for tha...

    I don't read a lot of sci-fi, but after reading the synopsis of this gorgeous book, I just had to check it out! I'm so glad I did! From the very first page, I was hooked, and I found myself reading this gem of a book in almost one sitting. All of my theories were completely wrong and a...

    **I received an ARC of this - thank you so much to Page Street Publishing but it didn't change my opinion at all** There was nothing really wrong with this book, but I think a lot of things compiled together to make it a bit messy and cliche and something that I wasn't vibing with. ...

    I very much have a ?what did I just read? feeling about this book but I still think I enjoyed it. I?m happy where it ended even though the middle was confusing as hell. ...

    A cataclysmic explosion destroys Camryn's world; she survives when she's not supposed to, and the only constant in the chaos is a bespectacled boy who may or may not actually exist. AFTERIMAGE, Naomi Hughes' debut sci-fi thriller, is a page-turner with twists and turns that will lea...

    Oh, my gosh - this book. I had the pleasure of reading an early version of AFTERIMAGE and it killed me dead. Then I got to read the ARC which also killed me dead. The ghost of my ghost is writing this review for you. AFTERIMAGE is teeming with fast-paced, heart-pounding acti...

    Rated 2.5 really. Fast-paced and full of turns, this one would make a great adult sci-fi book set in a distant future (minus the weird-instalove part). The problem is, as a teen's adventure set in our time-frame, and in our good old reality, it doesn't hold. Both the science and the...

    I loved this YA thriller! Calling it a thriller is oversimplifying. Whether you're a fan of ghost stories and the paranormal, a science-fiction fan, or a reader of conspiracy thrillers, this book is for you. A very original take on the YA thriller genre, very smart, and full of unantic...

    A heart-pounding thrill ride that explores how far we'd go to fix our mistakes - and what it means to face them. Beautifully written and hauntingly real, this book is one that stayed with me long after I turned the last page. **I read an early copy of this, and cannot WAIT to see it...

    I absolutely loved this book! I read it through an ARC program and will definitely be buying myself a copy when it comes out. The storytelling and writing style captures the reader and draws you in. Because neither Quint nor Camryn know what is happening, and the suspense and life ...

    Thank you to Page Street Publishing for a copy of the ARC in exchange for a fair review. Camryn is working through her panic disorder, and her mom is talking it her through it when she finally makes it on base to pick her mom up from work. However, Camryn never makes it into the b...

    Naomi Hughes weaves a powerful thriller that kept me on edge the entire time. I'm not necessary a huge fan of science fiction, but it was the perfect amount that I could follow/understand and held my interest. Hughes puts us in the narrator's head so well, that it is truly hard to ...

    This one had me from the first page. The standout for me was the character of Camryn, who has some real obstacles to both overcome and manage, but confronts each of them with gusto and spirit and a touch of vulnerability. Loved the writing--again, Camryn's voice!--but the plot was equa...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, for all that the book was nonstop action, sometimes it still felt like not a lot was actually happening. Also, the science was sometimes hard to understand (but then it always is for me in sci-fi books that deal with alternate time...

    I really enjoyed this book and actually finished it last week -- I thought I had added it here, but apparently not. Afterimage was one of those books for me that sucked me in from the first chapter and held my attention to the very end. It was different, exciting, and the overall story...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on my toes, every time I thought I knew what was going on, the author took a turn I did not expect. I was intrigued straight through to the end. It's an imaginative original story with a great, believable protagonist. Highly recommend!! ...

    Dit is een heel apart verhaal. Er is geen bladzijde rust en bijna alle mogelijke sci fi kenmerken worden gecombineerd. Dit zorgde er wel voor dat dit boek alles behalve saai was! Lastig weg te leggen maar net iets te onrustig om door te lezen. Erg lastig :p 3.7/5 (of een 4- maar net...

    This book had me intrigued from the very beginning. It is full of action, twists and turns. I just kept needing to know what would happen next. I also loved the mystery surrounding Camryn and Quint. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Afterimage is a science fiction book with a lot of heart, intrigue, and a fantastic main character. Camryn has this wonderful resilience in her. She suffers from...

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher/Saichek Publicity in exchange for a honest review. I had high expectations for Afterimage but it fell short when the story took a turn towards Sci-Fi. I?m all for Sci-Fi but the synopsis promised a Dystopian novel, and that w...

    I feel like this is one of those books that's hard to talk about without giving too much away. I really enjoyed the book as a whole, there's a lot going on and when you start getting to the twists it just amps it up. The science and way things go is really intriguing, and the character...

    Camryn suffers from panic/anxiety disorder. One day she is trying to overcome it and go inside the science facility where her mom is waiting for her when a horrible explosion occurs. The explosion kills her mom and many other people and also leaves Camryn seeing an after image of a you...

    This was a nice read! The story was intriguing and the characters were compelling! I loved the inclusion of mental health issues (and not just as a plot device) and I haven?t seen this type of story a ton, which was refreshing! I really liked the dialogue between the MC and Quint,...

    See full review here: https://wordpress.com/posts/booksinth... Overall, Afterimage by Naomi Hughes was a nonstop adventure with twists and turns that I didn?t see coming. While the writing is decent, it was really the story that swept me away. The buildup of the characters was don...

    Afterimage is a YA science-fiction thriller that includes a major plot line regarding alternate timelines. The problem that I had with the book was, from the outset, blame was placed on a certain individual with no explanation as to how the authorities arrived at their conclusion. By u...

    I feel like this is one of those books that's hard to talk about without giving too much away. I really enjoyed the book as a whole, there's a lot going on and when you start getting to the twists it just amps it up. The science and way things go is really intriguing, and the character...

    To me, the hardest part about being a book blogger is when you find a book that feels like it could have worked for you, but somehow, it just didn?t quite make it?and then trying to review that book in actual, coherent words and phrases, when all you really know how to do is kind o...

    THIS. BOOK. I was obsessed with this book from about 10 pages in. The story is thrilling and there may in fact be a new twist in every single chapter. Our main character Camryn deeply loves her mom, dad, and brother Kyle. She deals with true Panic Disorder and works so hard for tha...

    I don't read a lot of sci-fi, but after reading the synopsis of this gorgeous book, I just had to check it out! I'm so glad I did! From the very first page, I was hooked, and I found myself reading this gem of a book in almost one sitting. All of my theories were completely wrong and a...

    **I received an ARC of this - thank you so much to Page Street Publishing but it didn't change my opinion at all** There was nothing really wrong with this book, but I think a lot of things compiled together to make it a bit messy and cliche and something that I wasn't vibing with. ...

    I very much have a ?what did I just read? feeling about this book but I still think I enjoyed it. I?m happy where it ended even though the middle was confusing as hell. ...

    A cataclysmic explosion destroys Camryn's world; she survives when she's not supposed to, and the only constant in the chaos is a bespectacled boy who may or may not actually exist. AFTERIMAGE, Naomi Hughes' debut sci-fi thriller, is a page-turner with twists and turns that will lea...

    Oh, my gosh - this book. I had the pleasure of reading an early version of AFTERIMAGE and it killed me dead. Then I got to read the ARC which also killed me dead. The ghost of my ghost is writing this review for you. AFTERIMAGE is teeming with fast-paced, heart-pounding acti...

    Rated 2.5 really. Fast-paced and full of turns, this one would make a great adult sci-fi book set in a distant future (minus the weird-instalove part). The problem is, as a teen's adventure set in our time-frame, and in our good old reality, it doesn't hold. Both the science and the...

    I loved this YA thriller! Calling it a thriller is oversimplifying. Whether you're a fan of ghost stories and the paranormal, a science-fiction fan, or a reader of conspiracy thrillers, this book is for you. A very original take on the YA thriller genre, very smart, and full of unantic...

    A heart-pounding thrill ride that explores how far we'd go to fix our mistakes - and what it means to face them. Beautifully written and hauntingly real, this book is one that stayed with me long after I turned the last page. **I read an early copy of this, and cannot WAIT to see it...

    I absolutely loved this book! I read it through an ARC program and will definitely be buying myself a copy when it comes out. The storytelling and writing style captures the reader and draws you in. Because neither Quint nor Camryn know what is happening, and the suspense and life ...

    Thank you to Page Street Publishing for a copy of the ARC in exchange for a fair review. Camryn is working through her panic disorder, and her mom is talking it her through it when she finally makes it on base to pick her mom up from work. However, Camryn never makes it into the b...

    Naomi Hughes weaves a powerful thriller that kept me on edge the entire time. I'm not necessary a huge fan of science fiction, but it was the perfect amount that I could follow/understand and held my interest. Hughes puts us in the narrator's head so well, that it is truly hard to ...

    This one had me from the first page. The standout for me was the character of Camryn, who has some real obstacles to both overcome and manage, but confronts each of them with gusto and spirit and a touch of vulnerability. Loved the writing--again, Camryn's voice!--but the plot was equa...

    I have mixed feelings about this book. On one hand, for all that the book was nonstop action, sometimes it still felt like not a lot was actually happening. Also, the science was sometimes hard to understand (but then it always is for me in sci-fi books that deal with alternate time...

    I really enjoyed this book and actually finished it last week -- I thought I had added it here, but apparently not. Afterimage was one of those books for me that sucked me in from the first chapter and held my attention to the very end. It was different, exciting, and the overall story...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on my toes, every time I thought I knew what was going on, the author took a turn I did not expect. I was intrigued straight through to the end. It's an imaginative original story with a great, believable protagonist. Highly recommend!! ...

    Dit is een heel apart verhaal. Er is geen bladzijde rust en bijna alle mogelijke sci fi kenmerken worden gecombineerd. Dit zorgde er wel voor dat dit boek alles behalve saai was! Lastig weg te leggen maar net iets te onrustig om door te lezen. Erg lastig :p 3.7/5 (of een 4- maar net...

    I really loved this book. The story kept me on my toes, every time I thought I knew what was going on, the author took a turn I did not expect. I was intrigued straight through to the end. It's an imaginative original story with a great, believable protagonist. Highly recommend!! ...

    Dit is een heel apart verhaal. Er is geen bladzijde rust en bijna alle mogelijke sci fi kenmerken worden gecombineerd. Dit zorgde er wel voor dat dit boek alles behalve saai was! Lastig weg te leggen maar net iets te onrustig om door te lezen. Erg lastig :p 3.7/5 (of een 4- maar net...

    This book had me intrigued from the very beginning. It is full of action, twists and turns. I just kept needing to know what would happen next. I also loved the mystery surrounding Camryn and Quint. ...

    (Disclaimer: I received this free book from the publisher. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.) Afterimage is a science fiction book with a lot of heart, intrigue, and a fantastic main character. Camryn has this wonderful resilience in her. She suffers from...

    Disclosure: I received a review copy from the publisher/Saichek Publicity in exchange for a honest review. I had high expectations for Afterimage but it fell short when the story took a turn towards Sci-Fi. I?m all for Sci-Fi but the synopsis promised a Dystopian novel, and that w...

    I feel like this is one of those books that's hard to talk about without giving too much away. I really enjoyed the book as a whole, there's a lot going on and when you start getting to the twists it just amps it up. The science and way things go is really intriguing, and the character...

    Camryn suffers from panic/anxiety disorder. One day she is trying to overcome it and go inside the science facility where her mom is waiting for her when a horrible explosion occurs. The explosion kills her mom and many other people and also leaves Camryn seeing an after image of a you...

    This was a nice read! The story was intriguing and the characters were compelling! I loved the inclusion of mental health issues (and not just as a plot device) and I haven?t seen this type of story a ton, which was refreshing! I really liked the dialogue between the MC and Quint,...
