All Our Yesterdays Review

""You have to kill him." Imprisoned in the heart of a secret military base, Em has nothing except the voice of the boy in the cell next door and the list of instructions she finds taped inside the drain.

Only Em can complete the final instruction. She’s tried everything to prevent the creation of a time machine that will tear the world apart. She holds the proof: a list she has never seen before, written in her own hand. Each failed attempt in the past has led her to the same terrible present—imprisoned and tortured by a sadistic man called the doctor while war rages outside. 

Marina has loved her best friend James since the day he moved next door when they were children. A gorgeous, introverted science prodigy from one of America’s most famous families, James finally seems to be seeing Marina in a new way, too. But on one disastrous night, James’s life crumbles apart, and with it, Marina’s hopes for their future. Now someone is trying to kill him. Marina will protect James, no matter what. Even if it means opening her eyes to a truth so terrible that she may not survive it. At least not as the girl she once was. "

This book is so unbelievably amazing I love it! I really do in fact I would go as far to say as I prefer this book to the Hunger Games and Divergent! Which says an awful lot because if you read either of those books you'll know they are fantastic. I am afraid that this will stop being a review and turn into a love letter to a book it is simply that good! I love dystopian books and I thought that Terrill has created a world that is so enticing you just get sucked in. I would put this book as one of the top dystopian novels out at the minute and would also put this down as one of the best books I have read this year. The alternating view points of the past and present Marina and Em as I think they add so much to the story. I love Finn he is my favourite character and I love the love triangle! I also adore how James is presented as a whole. And the twist in the end, Fantastic!

All I can say is read it! If you enjoyed any dystopian novel you'll enjoy this.

Disclaimer- This book was sent to me by however, all opinions are my own.


  1. I adored this book, rather unexpectedly. I liked James, and completely agree with you that he is presented as a whole. I thought Terrill did a really good job, and I can't wait to read more of her stuff.

    Here's my review.


    1. I loved your review! I hope the next book comes out soon if there is one.
