Why did I pick this book: I loved My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century (click the title for my review) and couldn’t wait to read this one.
Did I enjoy this book: I really did. It was such a good read. I couldn’t put it down.
I loved so much about this story. To start, I felt bad for Less and what she discovered before she left. I liked her traveling to the future. What I really liked was that time wasn’t parallel. Less had aged two years, while it had been a mere two months for Cat. That was different for me and I really loved that the “little” cousin was now an equal.
Austin. A great match for Less. I loved that he showed her what life could be like–with adventure and passion. I know they are only 16 or 17, but still. These two. My favorite line: “This is Austin.” Tells you everything from what we learn about Austin throughout.
I liked the pace of A Tale of Two Centuries. It moved. It had me hooked. It made me happy, giddy, anxious. I’m sorry if this review is a bit jumpy, cryptic, not thorough, whatever. I don’t want to spoil anything as many of my favorite parts would spoil the most wonderful parts of the book.
Bottom line: A Tale of Two Centuries is a wonderful read that I will definitely revisit again in the future. I can’t wait to read My Not So Super Sweet Life.
Would I recommend it: Absolutely! Be sure to read My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century first.
About the book – from Goodreads: Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.
One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.
With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?
