This is what it means to love someone. This is what it means to grieve someone. It's a little bit like a black hole. It's a little bit like infinity.

Gottie H. Oppenheimer is losing time. Literally. When the fabric of the universe around her seaside town begins to fray, she's hurtled through wormholes to her past:

To last summer, when her grandfather Grey died. To the afternoon she fell in love with Jason, who wouldn't even hold her hand at the funeral. To the day her best friend Thomas moved away and left her behind with a scar on her hand and a black hole in her memory.

Although Grey is still gone, Jason and Thomas are back, and Gottie's past, present, and future are about to collide—and someone's heart is about to be broken.

This Is Who I Am Now

In February, I answered the below questions to see how they would change from then to now. Let's see how much my life has changed (or in some cases, stayed the same) over the last four months!

What Brings You The Most Joy In Life?
  • February 2016: My family and friends! Of course my dog, Bentley.
  • May 2016: Well this has certainly not changed! Although the doughnut I had for breakfast this morning was super delightful.

What Are You Reading?
  • February 2016: Red Queen by Victoria Aveyard, but really I’m mostly listening to Hamilton.
  • May 2016: Finishing up The Winner's Kiss by Marie Rutkoski. 84% of the way done and THE FEELS!

What Is Something You’re Really Looking Forward To?
  • February 2016: I get to meet Rainbow Rowell tomorrow!
  • May 2016: The future. Oh, and the Chipotle I'm going to have for dinner.

What Is One Thing That’s Worrying You?
  • February 2016: Winter isn’t over yet, which means there’s still a chance of snow.
  • May 2016: Nothing in particular. Maybe whether or not A Court of Mist and Fury will be at my house when I get home or the post office will hold on to it for a few days.

What Is Something That You Always Have With You?
  • February 2016: My phone. I know how that sounds, but I’ve got book apps (Kindle and OverDrive) and all my music, so it keeps me entertained.
  • May 2016: Same ^

What Is Something That You Wish You Could Change?
  • February 2016: My inability to currently see Hamilton live.
  • May 2016: That I could have another doughnut without consequences. They're five feet away and I have no self control.
