​Ida By Alison Evans

I was given this by by the publisher in exchange for an honest review

Ida is a normal, unmotivated, individual who can time travel or that is what she believes.  She is in a relationship with a non binary artist.  She lives with her father and autistic relative and has no idea what to do with her life.  All she knows is that she can jump around in time. At first, she only uses that power in emergencies. But, then it becomes addictive. Then, Ida loses control of her powers,  having no control concerning when she jumps. The places where she lands get more surreal and frightening with each jump. Soon she discovers that there is more to her power than meets the eye. 
In many ways this book is nothing to write home about. It is a conventionally written speculative fiction work. However,  this book has a diverse range of characters and that is its major selling point. Both the autistic and non binary characters are fairly well drawn.  This book would make a great option for those wishing for a diverse YA/ spec read.

Currently Reading 

The story of Egypt by Joanne Fletcher pub Hodder 

Killer Tune by Dreda Say Mitchell pub Hodder 
I am reading Killer Tunes for a in person reading group. This experience proves the value of reading groups. This is a book that I would have never have picked up on my own initiative.  But,  the group decided to read it, and I am really loving it. 

Questions 

1) what are you reading 

2) are you part of a reading group? What do you think of them. 

Have a good break, if you are having one. If not, have a productive week.
