You guys remember Hannah right? She wrote that really awesome guest post? Well, I told you I would be reading her new book…

Amendments (Release Date: May 24, 2018)
Emelia must choose. Her sister or her soulmate.
In the near future, the Administration have ensured that the human race should never have to live with any regrets.
Like millions before her, Emelia now has the chance to go back and make the ‘correct’ decisions. The little envelope that contains her amendment will change not just her life, but that of the people she loves the most. Her sister, Finola, whose reckless and self-destructive nature have lead her dangerously close to the sinister Marchers; and Gabe, the rock that has been holding the remnants of her broken family together for as long as she can remember.
Caught between saving Finola or happiness with Gabe, she must struggle to predict how the ripples of her amendments will spread.
Two envelopes, two choices, one life.

This book is really hard to classify. It doesn’t fit just one genre. On the surface it’s easy to lump it in the Dystopian genre but honestly there is so much more to it. It’s Sci-Fi, Speculative Fiction, Drama, Romance… well you get the idea. One thing I can say with absolute certainty is that it’s enthralling!
The main theme is the ramifications of time travel or “The Butterfly Effect”. How going back to undo a choice or action (making an “Amendment”) will have a strong ripple effect on everyone and everything around you.
We have two sisters whose lives have already been drastically altered by their mother’s amendments but in order to rectify past mistakes to try an improve their lives, the sisters use their right to amend. The results are.. well, you’ll have to read it to find out.
Hannah Lynne has brilliantly written a story that will make you question everything in your own life. What if I did this? Or If I hadn’t gone there… You know the “What Ifs” that we all carry around with us, only in this book, we get to see the consequences when people try to experiment with causality.
I really loved this story. The plot was unique, exciting, and truly evocative, and I was riveted from page one. You know those books that are so amazing, you want everyone you know to read it just so you can talk about it with them? This is definitely one of those books.
