We Can’t-Wait to Read: The Psychology of Time Travel by Kate Mascarenhas @KateMascarenhas @crookedlanebks #travelingsistersread


Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about and that we have yet to read.  It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine.

We can’t wait to read The Psychology of Time Travel an upcoming Traveling Sisters  Group Read.  Thank you to Sarah from Crooked Lane Books for providing all of us an early access sneak peak to this title and thank you so much for suggesting to us that this one would make for a great group discussion. We are all looking forward to diving into this one.

Goodreads summary 

1967: Four female scientists invent a time-travel machine. They are on the cusp of fame: the pioneers who opened the world to new possibilities. But then one of them suffers a breakdown and puts the whole project in peril.

2017: Ruby knows her beloved Granny Bee was a pioneer, but they never talk about the past. Though time travel is now big business, Bee has never been part of it. Then they receive a message from the future–a newspaper clipping reporting the mysterious death of an elderly lady.

2018: When Odette discovered the body, she went into shock. Blood everywhere, bullet wounds, flesh. But when the inquest fails to answer any of her questions, Odette is frustrated. Who is this dead woman that haunts her dreams? And why is everyone determined to cover up her murder?
