Book Review: Time Between Us

Author: Tamara Ireland Stone
Publication Date: October 9, 2012
Publisher: Hyperion

Anna and Bennett were never supposed to meet: she lives in 1995 Chicago and he lives in 2012 San Francisco. But Bennett has the unique ability to travel through time and space, which brings him into Anna’s life, and with him a new world of adventure and possibility.

As their relationship deepens, the two face the reality that time may knock Bennett back to where he belongs; even as a devastating crisis throws everything they believe into question. Against a ticking clock, Anna and Bennett are forced to ask themselves how far they can push the bounds of fate, what consequences they can bear in order to stay together, and whether their love can stand the test of time.

This was, hands down, my favorite book this year! If nothing better comes along from now until the end of December then this book with be my choice of the year for 2012! I do not make these types of statements lightly; it takes a fantastic book to blow me away like this! I have found an author who is worthy of this award. After I had finished reading the book I just held it in my hands and thought to myself, “This was a phenomenal book!” In fact, I am still thinking about Anna and Bennett’s story. I sat down at 9:00 last night and had it finished by midnight.


The entire concept of this story takes a very skilled writer to produce. I am so blown away with Tamara Stone’s writing and her ability to make time travel sound and appear so freaking believable. She had my attention the entire time. I was focused on the story and there was no way that I was putting it down because I could not be separated for Anna and Bennett that long. I needed to know everything about Bennett and his ability to travel through time. I wanted to be Anna; I was so jealous! They both seemed so realistic to me. It was like we had been friends forever.


My favorite idea/scenes in this book were after Anna knew what Bennett was capable of and they started to travel the world together. Anna was always into the idea of traveling and reading travel guide books was a favorite hobby that she had. Bennett learned this and started to take her all kinds of places all over the world. My only complaint here is that I wish they would have traveled to more places together! But I think the end of the book kind of left that in the air. Bennett and Anna were so crazy about each other and I love the experiences and moments where it was just them together, on an adventure. Their whole relationship was fueled by adventure, and I believe that is the best relationship to have. Every moment there was something new to explore.


I cannot even express into words how much I loved this book, or how much I admired these characters. Tamara writes awesome secondary characters as well and Anna’s best friend was one of my favorites. I obviously cannot sit and talk about every small and tiny detail that I loved about this book because we will be here until time for dinner tonight! If this book sounds at all interesting to you then please do not hesitate to go out and pick up a copy today or stop by Tamara’s website. I am her new biggest fan!
