This was a very interesting book. I do not think i have ever read anything like it. It was a Suspenseful dark comedy that had all kinds of twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my seat. I have to admit that it did take a little while to get into the story but as soon as it picked up i couldn’t put it down. The characters were funny and man do i want one of those GIANT Cinderella coffee cups that Ann liked to drink out of. She “dreams” of a new life without her husband and has to decide if she should come clean to him about the “dream” she had of him dying. She has to decide if she wants the life that she is living or if she should pack it up and go live her life somewhere else.
This was a fun interesting read and i would recommend it a friend.

The Future Memoir of Ann Jones was a great 5 star read.
This was a different storyline than I’m used to with a little bit of magic and travel through time and I really enjoyed it.

It took me a little bit to get into the story but than I couldn’t put it down. We meet Ann who has visions about her future. She is a widow who joins a knitting club that had some very interesting members and rules.

I really don’t want to say much more and give away things about this great story. There were several twists and turns that pulled me right in. I really liked all of the characters, some gave me LOL moments. I really liked Ben and how he pursued Ann, he wasn’t going to give up. I felt like we got several different stories and it was great. Alex Bailey does a great job of pulling you in with her writing and telling a great story. I look forward to reading more from her.

The Future Memoir of Ann Jones is a captivating book by Alex Bailey. I was expecting something along the lines of The Time Traveller’s Wife but it’s more of a Sliding Doors sort of thing. But more so.
There were points where it felt a little bit weird, but the framing narrative more or less gives it permission to be a bit weird. After all, we don’t know what if any of the story is real, and how much has been altered as it’s been passed on.
It was an enjoyable read. From the start, I was intrigued and needed to know what was going on with the knitting club! The characters were certainly characterful! I particularly liked Helga, a young woman with a flair for palm reading, and Daniel, a chef who is always up for experimenting.
At the end of the book, we get an extra treat with the recipes for a few of the dishes mentioned in the story. I very much approve of this, as my mouth was watering pretty much all the way through (so much so that I had to take a break to go and get some chocolate before I could finish reading!).
If you like strange cult-like groups with innocent seeming facades (I was reminded of Hot Fuzz!) and a book that explores “what ifs”, then this is definitely worth a read! It wasn’t quite what I expected but I couldn’t put it down, so definitely gets five stars from me!

When I started reading The Future Memoir of Ann Jones: A Time Travel Romance with a Splash of Magic by author Alex Bailey I thought I was getting a light hearted rom-com. In reality what I found was a little gem of a story about a middle-aged woman with a “vision”. In this vision Ann Jones finds herself a widowed empty nester who has moved cross country to start her life over. She’s gotten herself a new house, has found a possible new romantic interest and has joined a knitting club in an effort to make new friends. I enjoyed Ann’s sense of humor and overall spunk throughout the story, I enjoyed all the secondary characters as well as the mystery of the knitting club and its members. Overall this was a different kind of storyline that was refreshing in a world of rote ideas and writing.

My rating: 5 out of 5 stars

This is a doozy of a book. The start was slow but as I kept reading I got more and more into the story line. The story is awesome and the characters are very well written. I am truly speechless about how to tackle this review.

It is absolutely crazy to me that the story is based on an imagined life in Ann’s head. The whole time I was reading was like it was really happening and then I get a wake up call in the end, realizing that this was not real life. Each character was more interesting than the next and their stories were just as intriguing. I love that this book offered so much detail and background into each character, the best part being this “knitting club”. Throughout the book and learning more and more about the knitting club perplexed me, how did Frida know to invite Ann to join the club? Why are there so many crazy and scary rules, and what happens if you break them?

I want to say so much more but fear I will give too much away. I will say I HIGHLY recommend this book. This is not my usual genre, but I could not put this book down. You absolutely will not regret reading this book, I thoroughly enjoyed it and can’t wait to check out more by this author!

The Future Memoir of Anne Jones: A Time Travel Romance with a Splash of Magic by Alex Bailey is a very unique story. Close your eyes and picture Stepford Wives in the world of Premonition (I hope you have seen both movies so you get an inclination of what I mean!). I loved both movies so it is not a far stretch that I also liked this story.
This unique story is written in a letter form – Alex is sending a letter to her sister telling her the story of her friend Ann Jones who had a vision of her husband dying … it feels like a dream at times (imagine yourself being fed up with your life and then imagining what your life would be like if …). It is a fun story, I have never read anything remotely similar to it and it entertains the heck out of you! It has a bunch of intriguing characters that keep you guessing and thinking what will happen next.
I did feel that the story was a bit slow to take off but after couple of chapters you get sucked in and will be let out only when you get to the end so put aside some time when you pick up the story as the ‘future is waiting for you!”

“The Future Memoir of Ann Jones” is a wildly imaginative story by Alex Bailey. It may take you a minute to get into the book, but do not give up! This creative story will keep you turning the pages and guessing until the very end! This was one of those stories you don’t want to put down simply because the story is so inventive and you just want to know what happens next! Ann is a wonderfully complex character who just moved to a new town that makes her question everyone and everything. I thoroughly enjoyed reading about her adventure, even if it did leave me with a few questions of my own! There were a few points that I was hoping would get explained in more detail but didn’t, but that didn’t stop me from enjoying this book. So, I give “The Future Memoir of Ann Jones” four stars!

The Future Memoir of Ann Jones was a really refreshing read. When I first read the blurb I wasn’t quite sure it would be a book I would enjoy but I decided to give it a go and it is exactly a described – a time travel romance with a splash of magic! It really was great to read. I found myself captivated by the story straight away, I liked that I wasn’t sure what was going to happen and as Alex Bailey is a new to me author I wasn’t sure how the book would be written. The author had a really great engaging and very imaginative writing style which suited the story perfectly. It did take me a little time to understand what was going on but that just added to the intrigue of this book. The characters in the story were really great and there were definitely some great humorous moments that were very entertaining.
I definitely recommend this book and would love to read more from this author again in the future.
