    1. I know I m supposed to write a review with a head and a tail, start from the beginning and work my way toward the end at least that s the way I usually do things but I ll make an exception just this once and start with the ending, from which I honestly doubt I ll ever recover The ending of Flutter broke my heart, destroyed me completely, and then left me with a small sliver of hope to cure my wounded heart It was both unexpected and unexpectedly gorgeous, one of those conclusions that take you c [...]


    2. It is really hard to talk about this book as I am not really sure of my feelings for it.The premise was great someting between time travel and something else, a little boy giving clues that could save Emery s life and maybe not even hers , tons of mystery, a bit of action and some young romance but I am not really sure what the but is except for the fact that I felt the need to skip some pages Not a good sign, right I guess I was not invested enough in the mystery that soon got old , and the rom [...]


    3. Raise your hand if you have ever finished a book and been flummoxed by the ending Befuddled by it Bewildered, maybe These are all adjectives that accurately describe my state of mind upon finishing Flutter.I had been enjoying it until the end The paranormal aspects of it are original, the idea of a loop is, to me, new and I liked the fragile fierceness of the main character It was a pleasure to accompany her on her escape from a madman for a father and go out into the world to answer the summons [...]


    4. Rating 3.5 StarsYou have to bear with me because this review is like the Night Bus in Harry Potter or the journey the hobbits took to Isengard in Lord of the Rings a bumpy ride Flutter forced me to stay awake well past midnight just to finish it, but in the end, I unfortunately can t say I was satisfied Up until the last four chapters, though, I was ready to give 5 Stars to Linko s debut, despite its minor errors Unlike most authors, Linko sucked me into her tale she made me care about her chara [...]


    5. 4.5 stars This book was absolutely beautiful.I had misjudged this book From the summary, I thought it was going to be filled with science fiction action and some paranormal connection that will lead Emery to her soulmate But this book was NOT what I had expected at all.Just a warning, the pace is set very slow sometimes painstakingly slow, but not necessarily in a bad way Linko manages to fool readers into THINKING they know what s going to happen but ends up catching them off guard with what re [...]


    6. Initial thoughts I think this is one of the times where, in the consideration of a book great premise, lacking execution fully applies This book didn t work for me for quite many constructive reasons, which I ll expound upon in the full review when I ve had a chance to meditate over some of its themes It has a heart in right places, but cedes to things and lacks the execution needed to have due impact in what it brings to the table.Full review One of the things that tend to make or break a book [...]



    7. Emery Land is sick of being treated like a walking, talking, laboratory experiment by her Dad and the government Ever since she was little Em has been looping back and forth through time, while having seizures that have nearly destroyed her body s functions Practically living in the hospital, all Em wants is to be a normal high school girl When her visions of the mysterious little boy and his town become vivid, Emery enlists the help of her best friend Gia to run away to Esperanza, Michigan to [...]


    8. Do you love time travelling novels Books like Tempest by Julie Cross , The Time Traveller s Wife and The Guardian Angel s Journal by Carolyn Jess Cooke If you enjoy those books, then you will enjoy Gina Linko s novel Flutter Set in the modern time we meet Emery, ever since she was little she has been having what she calls the loops From the outside world, it looks like she is having seizures but to her , she is time travelling to a parallel world whether it be in the past or future times Sick of [...]


    9. An absolutely fascinating and unexpectedly poignant read Linko s love story encompasses so much and is beautifully executedagic and heartwrenching A great addition to the science fiction cannon because it finds a ways to question how the afterlife and heaven fit into this genre Well done, Linko One issue I had with the book was the dialogue Sometimes a little corny and unrealistic Also, sometimes the interaction between Ash and Emery seems to be a little to fortuitous But, teens would appreciate [...]



    10. This book was another case of me expecting one thing and getting something else entirely.Emery Land has spent several years living in a hospital because of the loops To everyone else it appears that Emery is having a seizure, but Emery actually travels to other dimensions when she loops Sometimes she travels to the past, other times to a fantasy world, and other times to a farm where the same little boy always appears Sick of living in a hospital where her doctor father constantly runs tests on [...]


    11. Emery land has suffered from seizures for most of her life but she calls them loops, she says that she travels to a place when she has her loops Emery is getting sick of living at the hospital so she runs away to a place called Esperenza which was mentioned in her loops, she believes that Esperenza has the key to why these seizures loops happen to her In Esperenza she meets a boy named Ash, they slowly fall into love and as time goes by she realizes that Ash has many dark secrets Emerys father i [...]


    12. Flutter 5 stars Holy Smokes First off i adore this book I really loved how the author was able to induce a loop I had to be completely careful where i read this story i was completely transfixed Emery is just a 17 year old girl wanting to be normal too bad for her shes not Haunted yeah ill go with haunted by seizures she believes are loops time travel since she was a young girl Things are getting worse her loops convince her its time to kick rocks and so she does to a call town she only recently [...]


    13. I read this ARC via Netgalley.Her whole life, Emery s been looping she appears to be having a seizure, but she s really visiting other places other times Sometimes these places are memories, other times visions of the future, and other times, she ends up on a farm with a little boy Her father has made a life of studying Emery s loops, trying to figure out what they are But now Emery knows she is dying, that the loops are killing her, and armed with clues taken from her mysterious visions, she ge [...]


    14. Amazing I m speechless ,after the last update I did I assumed the book was going to be stupid but I was wrong.This book was so sweet but very sad.I gave this book 4 stars because this book had a great plot but it was confusing at the very end and also very draggy This book is about 17 year old Emery Land She is just like any other 17 year old girl other than the fact that she has seizures Her seizures are bit different she time travels loops Everyone including her dad thinks she s crazy for thin [...]


    15. WOW what a great book was hooked from the start, couldn t put it down, would definatly reccomend to friends and family, thought it was going to be a sad ending but very cleverly written

    17. Flutter is absorbing and contains some surprises, but I got frustrated with the main characters, and in particular, the romance.Emery has always had seizures They are getting worse, and now her father insists that she stay in a hospital because the seizures are slowly killing her But, these aren t just ordinary seizures Emery time travels to different places from the past or the future every time she seizes She may see people she knows during her travels, but not always She seems to go and see t [...]


    18. At seventeen, Emery Land finds her life voraciously consumed by physical deterioration resulting from seizures Practically living in a hospital under constant surveillance by her scientist father and an ostensibly skeptical team of doctors, she feels herself a lab rat consequently, weighing the stifling emotional price of her caged existence against the physically lethal cost of freedom, Emery flees in order to pursue her theory that during her seizures she travels through time and space Inhabit [...]


    19. Flutter by Gina Linko pulls readers along with Emery Land as she questions what is happening in her loops and what is happening in her life.These are difficult questions to answer I mean, if someone told you that she was time traveling, would you believe her Most likely, each and every one of you would have a different reaction Linko does an excellent job of depicting these different reactions with the people who make up Emery s world First, there is Emery s father, a scientist who is most conce [...]


    20. I thought this was a great book I probably read it at least a few times I fell in love with Ash and I dreamed of living in their little cabin I d recommend reading this book on a snowy day in winter It would really set the mood.


    21. What an unexpecting and surprisingly good read 4,5 starsREVIEW I had no expectations when I started this book Just a random read I picked out And it hasn t happened often that a book surprised me so much as Flutter did This turned out to be an amazingly beautiful, sweet and heart touching read with a nice balance between friendship love and a bit of mystery suspense.I liked Emery s spirit and attitude After being controlled by her father for so long she finally takes her life in own hands I like [...]


    22. I don t think I had any real expectations for this book, but Flutter really surprised me It captured my attention from the very beginning and held it all the way to the very end.Seventeen year old Emery lives her life in a hospital, she has been having loops since she was little and as she became older it has become worse to where she can t even go on with day to day activities without looping time traveling The loops are slowly killing her and she knows it When she loops she sometimes visits pe [...]


    23. Flutter followed a girl named Emery She s haunted by seizures that transport her to other times, which she calls loops After being called to a place called Esperanza in her loop, she breaks away from her hospital ward where her doctor father is keeping her, and sets off on a journey When there, she meets Ash, a boy with secrets of his own Emery and Ash s stories are intertwined, and they must figure out how they re connected before it s too late.I may have given this book one star, but I did enj [...]


    24. This is a very hard review to form There was so much about Flutter that I loved, yet all of it is dashed by the ending I promise no spoilers, no matter how hard they are to avoid Linko has a beautiful writing style The story had at times an almost otherworldly tone to it that I felt really built up the looping and the daze that Emery s life has become The concept was awesome That Emery is looping to another place or time was such an interesting idea I loved that this wasn t an easy ability By th [...]


    25. Eighteen year old Emery Land has suffered from seizures for as long as she can remember Emery is sure that her seizures are time loops She thinks she s traveling to the past or the future When she was young, she thought looping was normal Her seizures changed as she got older She is spending time in the loops Sometime she visits the future, but often she visits a young boy in the past She doesn t know his name so she thinks of him as her boy Now her seizures are stronger, frequent and longer i [...]


    26. Time traveling HECK YEAH That s awesome Love time traveling stories I always want to see how authors work around that paradox of potentially messing up the future, the effect of the self, and then how this then affects the other people.This story had me really going.Until I came to the ending.That s not to say Gina Linko has bad writing She doesn t She is a very capable writer that can do great description and emotion Her framing technique of using Emery s dreams as a portal to her future vision [...]
