Hello everyone and welcome back to the blog. How are you all today? I hope good!
Today is my stop in the T-Minus blog tour by Shannon Greenland and I have to say that I was so excited to read this book and it didn’t disappoint. It was a perfect young adult thriller!
And before I spoiler my own review let’s start with the post.
A terror with no answer needs a girl with no limits.Add the book to your Goodreads to-read shelf
I am the daughter of the first female POTUS, and today is about to become the longest day of my life…
24 hours—that’s how much time I have to save my mother before terrorists assassinate her. But now my father and brother are missing, too. This goes deeper than anyone thinks. Only someone on the inside would know how to pull this off—how to make the entire First Family disappear.
I can’t trust anyone, so it’s up to me to uncover the conspiracy and stop these madmen. Because little do they know, they picked the wrong person to terrorize.
My name is Sophie Washington, and I will not be a victim. No one, I repeat no one, is taking me or my family down. But the clock is ticking…

What I liked
This book was so great that I’m sad that the reading adventure is already over for me! Why? Couldn’t it be a bit longer? Or can we get a sequel please? That would be wonderful! Thank you very much! And now instead of complaining and crying I guess that I should start with all the amazing things this book has to offer!
First of all can we talk about the action? This was one hell of a ride, T-Minus is action-packed and I L.O.V.E.D that so much. This is the kind of thriller that I craved these past few months and never got. Now my cravings are satisfied for a while but I still want more of T-Minus.
The Flashbacks were pretty great. It helped us get to know our main character a lot better and especially to get some insights into the story. Which is a great thing. Usually I find flashbacks annoying because they are always at the wrong time but Greenland managed to put them at the right places. Thank you for that!
The author’s writing style was also perfect. The sentences were short, the pace was fast, the writing was fluid and the chapters were pretty short. Everything was perfect, and it’s everything I like!
The storyline was great and it reminded me a bit of the TV show Designated Survivor on Netflix. Well the book has nothing to do with the plot of DS but it’s still about some troubles in the White House.
I also appreciated the meaning of friendship in this book because Sophie has a lot of luck to have friends that support her as they did in T-Minus. This is real friendship, maybe not always realistic (I talk about their decisions) but it still felt real.
What I didn’t like
Everything was great! Some parts might have been a bit too predictable and I already knew from the beginning who was behind all of this mess but I still liked the reading experience a lot!
Overall, if you like thrillers and especially action-packed and fast-paced thrillers, read T-Minus. I promise you won’t be disappointed! It’s a fantastical Young Adult thriller.
Things you should know about me: I write novels! Some have won awards. Others have been bestsellers. Under Shannon Greenland (my real name) you’ll find spies, adventure, and romantic suspense. Under S. E. Green (my pen) you’ll find dark and gritty fiction about serial killers, cults, secret societies that do bad things, and whatever else my twisted brain deems to dream up. I’m on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. I also have a website and a very non-annoying newsletter where you can keep up to date with new releases, free stuff, and my mild ramblings about my travels. I have a very old and grouchy dog. But I love him. My humor runs dark and so don’t be offended by something off I might say. I mean no harm. I live in a small Florida beach town, but I’m most often found exploring the world. I eat entirely too many chips. I also love math!
