    1. This review appears at Book Nerd Reviews.I am going to start by saying this: I dislike science in general. I like that it exists, but I often switch off when people start talking about it (which happens often where I work). My understanding of science is from The Big Bang Theory, the stuff that I cannot ignore at work, and the understanding that I really hated my high school science teacher. So, for these reasons, I generally don’t love science fiction novels or stories that include science… [...]

    2. I received an eBook copy of this book in exchange for an honest reviewWHAT WHAT WHAT WHATWhat's with that ending?! FULL REVIEW POSTED ON MY BLOG : NERDYCHAMPAGNE!! Bonus! There's a fabulous going on right now so make sure you visit! Overall, this book is written greatly. I have pointed out how life slips off of the sentences and characters some times already and I’m tired of repeating myself. I generally think this novel is sad. I feel like the ending was a bit rushed but at the same it was on [...]

    3. Full review coming soon, but oh my goodness you need this book!UPDATE: This review and more can be found at The A P Book Club!*I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review*When the World Was Flat (and we were in love) was an incredible book, and when I finished it, I figured that would be it. Everything wrapped up nicely and it was very self-contained, and I was ok with that. But then! I learned that Ingrid was writing a whole collection of books set in the same world, a [...]

    4. Boricuan Bookworms- Book Reviews. I think that while this book had a great premise, I couldn’t really get into it because I disliked the main characters. I didn’t like Abbey, who was completely insufferable. I didn’t like Cole, who was a manipulative psychopath, I didn’t like Abbey’s parents, or her best friend, I think the only person I truly liked was Ethan, and it’s because we barely see any story from him.The problem with this book for me was definitely the romance. The romance [...]

    5. A few years ago, I read and fell in love with book When the World Was Flat (and We Were in Love) by Ingrid Jonach. From that moment on, I knew that I'd enjoy anything else that Ingrid wrote, and boy was I right! The one thing that I love about Ingrid's books is that she has a perfect mixture of science fiction and romance. I'm a huge sci-fi fan who loves romance, though not necessarily romance novels, so her books are just perfect for me in every way.Abbey was a really interesting character beca [...]

    6. Ringrazio Dianne di “Oops i read a book again” e Ingrid Jonach per avermi regalato la possibilità di leggere questo libro in cambio della mia onesta opinione. Recensione anche sul mio blog:pleaseanotherbook.tumblr/pVi avevo già parlato di “In the beginning there was us” di Ingrid Jonach nella mia tappa del Blog Tour, in cui potete leggere anche un estratto. Per una volta mi sono lasciata affascinare dalla trama, da quell’acceleratore di particelle che è sempre stata una delle mie fi [...]

    7. I loved this story. It's sweet and gut-wrenchingly sad. I really felt for Abbey and her mother particularly. Nice one, Ingrid. Cant wait to read the next instalment.

    8. ***Also posted on RurouniJenniReads***I started reading this book with a feeling of immense excitement BECAUSEI think this is my very first sci-fi YA read! Meanwhile, it's the second book of Ingrid Jonach for her Other World Collection. This collection consists of young adult novels with re-imagined histories and possible scientific explanations for the inexplicable in a contemporary setting. See Ingrid's guest post in the blog HERE where she explained why she loves writing this genre.Abbey Baxt [...]

    9. I'll be honest, this book was not for me. I started in several months ago and read about a hundred pages of iten it got pushed aside in favor of other books I was also reading. The idea is a novel one for YA, and I appreciate that. But things moved too quickly without any explanation almost happened randomly, it seemed to me.Unfortunately the story dragged for me and I couldn't pull myself out of the quicksand to get it finished.
