Last month I wrote two short book reviews on my blog, for books I have previously read but never reviewed here on my blog. Since I am pretty satisfied by how they turned out, I decided to do it once again, for books that I have read while I was in a reviewing slump.
My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris
My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century is a ya time-travel novel that will make you laugh more then few times while reading.
This is just like you could imagine from the title, a sweet, fluffy story that could even make you swoon (just) a little bit (I mean, Lorenzo is swoon worthy all the way!).
I remember how confused I was at the very beginning, because our main protagonist Cat travels time in a heartbeat, and it feels like she isn’t even freaked out about it. I mean, not at all!
I was confused myself but she had no problem figuring out what was hapening or fitting in.
The story is silly at times and the first half was bit boring (sometimes), but the second half is really intense and it makes you read more and faster. In other words, it compensates the first half.
This is a ya, but I would like to note that it would probably be more appealing to the younger audience (between 13-16 years old teens).
I had fun reading this book and would recommend it to those who look for some fluffy entertainment in their reads.
Someone Else’s Summer by Rachel Bateman
First of all, how cool the author’s surname is?! It’s almost like Batman, but with E in between.
And now… let’s get into the book…
This book is perfect for summer (ok, I know I’m late, but you can always read it on a sunny day, even if it’s not summer, or maybe save it for next year?), and it’s perfect combination of serious and emotional with lovely and swoon worthy.
The story follows Anna who lost her sister Storm. One day she finds her sister’s bucket list, and along with Storm’s best friend Cameron she spends the summer trying to cross of as many things from the list as she can.
This novel is an emotional roller coaster that I couldn’t put down, and I understand why many people say it’s their favorite.
