That was so much fun! Thanks to Rachel for being willing to interview! You sound like someone I totally want to meet! Haha! We'd totally get along! Well, moving on, I got the fantastic opportunity to read an ARC of this book! So here is my review.
For starters, I LOVE this book. Major swoony, hyper, awesome kind of love! It's so sassy, fun, romantic with lots of awesome historicalness + twenty-first century wrapped in one! I love all things historical Italy so this was just perfect for me! I absolutly loved Cat,. She was easy to connect with and full of 21st century fun. Her character change, which goes from being guarded to open was fantastic. She learns so much about life in fun ways and I loved the end result.One of the things I loved, was that when Cat first realized she had gone back int time was her thought process. One of the most logical realistic ones I've seen. Haha. She has great throught processes! She's funny and smart and overall just so loveable. Rachel really captured teen girls at their heart.
Of course you can't have such a fun book like this without an Italian hottie can you? Lorenzo was super fun. Hot, artistic, with quite a sense of humor. It's hard not to love him in all his persistent, flirty glory. The romance was so cute, but with the whole ending I sure hope it's the last we see of him! (NO SPOILERS-Don't Worry) So much fabulousness!
As for other fabulous supporting characters, I loved them! (if you couldn't tell by now) Alessandra, Cipriano (I think?) and Reyna, the mysterious gypsy. I'm sure hoping we get to see more of her in the next book! She was really quite interesting and played her role well. I'm sure hoping for more! Alessandra was really sweet. Seeing her connect to Cat and react to all of her little surprises was joyful. And seeing her develop into who she was, was rad. It was all just so fun and flirty and well written that I just had a blast reading it all. One of those books to enjoy when you need a pick me up! I can't wait for A Tale of Two Centuries! I'd totally recommended this to fans of the incredible River of Time series by Lisa T. Bergren.
