Blog Tour Review ft Giveaway - TRAVELER by L.E. DeLano

Traveler by L.E. DeLano
Genre: YA, Fantasy
Publication: February 7, 2017 by Swoon Reads

Jessa has spent her life dreaming of other worlds and writing down stories more interesting than her own, until the day her favorite character, Finn, suddenly shows up and invites her out for coffee. After the requisite nervous breakdown, Jessa learns that she and Finn are Travelers, born with the ability to slide through reflections and dreams into alternate realities. But it’s not all steampunk pirates and fantasy lifestyles…Jessa is dying over and over again, in every reality, and Finn is determined that this time, he’s going to stop it… this Jessa is going to live.

Hm. I want so bad to say I loved this one but I can't. It was okay and that ending was actually sort of heartbreaking. I think it's because I didn't expect it but it breaks my heart all the same. The concept of the story is an interesting and new. I liked the idea of people being able to travel in different realities; also that in this book the different realities totally exist. It's an awesome thought. But I think at time I got confused and bored. 

Obviously not bored enough to put the book down. But I was expecting something different. The relationship between Finn and Jessa was cute but I didn't feel that fiery need for them to be together. And if truth be told I liked Finn a whole lot more than her. Especially his other self in a different reality. I would go into all the semantics of the world but I feel like you'll probably enjoy it more if you read about it. Like I said before, it's an interesting concept. 

Even though I thought this was okay, I do still expect to read the next book. Seeing as how it left off, I just can't let a book go open ended. 

*Thank you to the publisher for providing a copy for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
