It is the last day of the Biannual Bibliothon…can you believe it? I hope yours was as productive as mine, but I also hope that you had a blast reading, as well as following me along my own journey!
The blogging challenge for day 7 is hosted by @Laura’s Literary Letters and is to write a book recommendation. I was very excited to tackle this challenge, however it was hard to choose which book to recommend…so many choices. Anyways, after a lot of careful decisions and comparisons, I came to conclusion to recommend the lovely book, Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier.
Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier is the first book in the Precious Stones trilogy, and is a book of time travel with a dash or two of romance. In Ruby Red, we follow our main character, Gwen, a sixteen year old girl whose family has a secret, they possess a time travelling gene. Gwen had always been accepted that her cousin Charlotte possessed the gene, happy to stay out of the spotlight and carry out a normal life, but when she travels back in time, frantic and confused, she realizes that it isn’t Charlotte who has the gene, but herself. Now Gwen’s life is flipped upside down and she is thrust into the spotlight, the burden of the being a time traveler suddenly dropped on her shoulders because time traveling doesn’t just mean going back in history, but is also means putting up with her new annoying, yet ridiculously handsome, time travelling partner, Gideon. We follow Gwen as she lives this new life of adventure, and learns to accept it and everything that comes along with it, including dark secrets that come into light throughout the book.
If you love a book with adventure and a relatable main character, you will love this book! It is a fun, easy read, and you will fly through it, desperate to move onto the next books, Sapphire Blue and Emerald Green. I also recommend this book because there is a movie! It may originally be in German, but on YouTube you can find the dubbed version and it is a very well adapted movie, one I highly recommend. So pick this book up from the library, or purchase a copy yourself because you won’t regret it!
