The Weather Girl by Amy Vastine

The Weather Girl - Amy Vastine

I liked this book a lot! It was perfect size for travelling and the copy I received was large print, so incredibly easy to read. The story is so sweet. I found it very clever, and liked the way the author incorporated the weather and football themes in the book. She also was very clever with naming the characters. I liked the dual point of view, because most novels I've read that were similar to this always had just the woman's point of view, so for me, it was something new and refreshing. I really liked the characters, they were quirky and adorable. The reason I rated it only three stars was because though it was sweet, and all that I found that it wasn't as amazing as other books that I gave a higher rating to. It is definitely worth a read if you want a little distracting and it works perfectly for when you are travelling.

Obsidian - Jennifer L. Armentrout

I loved reading this! I read it in a day, and had so much fun with it. I fell in love with the characters, and the plot is so much fun. I found some similarities to twilight, but it only made me like the story more. The main characters have such fun relationship, I loved reading about them. I am not going to lie, a huge part of the reason why I love the book is because of Daemon!!! I mean HOLY HOT ALIEN!!!

Sapphire Blue by Kerstin Gier

Sapphire Blue (The Ruby Red, #2) - Kerstin Gier, Anthea Bell

This one is just as great as the first one, if not better. I did not like that it was so short and the fact that Gwen spent most of the book moping around instead of kicking ass, but I suppose I will get over it. It was a really fun read and great continuation of the first book. Despite the ending I still love Gideon and now his arrogant little brother. However I still despise that chauvinistic pig called the count, but he makes a pretty good villain so I am satisfied with him in that aspect. I cannot wait to read the next book!!!! 

Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

Ruby Red - Kerstin Gier

I loved it, though I found Gwyneth, the main character to be a little dim at times. I do felt bad for her cousin Charlotte because she spent her whole childhood preparing to be a time traveller, only to find out that she wasn't the one with the time travelling gene. Though I didn't feel that bad because she is a snooty b word. Despite the dangers time travellers face I think Gwyneth is very lucky. 
I mean how awesome is it to find out that you can time travel and then you even get an attractive older guy who can fence, play the violin and speak a ton of foreign languages to accompany you. I have to say though, it was so short and ended quite abruptly. I am really happy that I don't have to wait for the next book to come out because that would drive me absolutely nuts! I really enjoyed reading it, I was so captivated that I couldn't put it down. And I liked how the epilogue confirmed my suspicions about her origins. I am quite curious to find out how things progress with Gideon, the sexy violin playing time traveller, and Lucy and Paul the chronograph thieves. Anyone that likes fantasy, history, London, and a little romance can enjoy this quick read.
