In my sixteen years on this earth, no guy had ever, ever flirted with me. The redneck boys where I was from preferred girls like my cheerleader cousins. Size two. Blond. Busty. Brainless.
This book is being marketed as Outlander for teens. It isn't. It's a serious insult to teens to say they're incapable of appreciating anything beyond this cliched, slut-shaming drivel.
Time travel doesn't even rear its head until the poor reader (me) has sat through pages and pages of innate, inexplicable speci ...more
I was lucky enough to read an early copy of INTO THE DIM as part of an ARC tour. The setting is lush, the conflict compelling, and the science and magic of time travel is fascinating. But my favorite part of this book is the wealth of complex female characters. Hope is flawed and full of fears, but she's smart and strong when it counts, and her friends, mother, and aunt represent a diverse range of ways to be kickass (at any age!). And of course, there's Eleanor of Aquitaine, whose sharp-tongued ...more
SCOTLAND AND TIME TRAVEL. Could there BE a more perfect book for me?
The very first sentence of Into the Dim is "Everyone in town knew that the coffin was empty," and it was love at first line. I devoured this book and could not believe it when I reached the end. Into the Dim has everything that I look for in a Historical Fiction novel: actual historical facts twisted into a new and fun plot. It actually left me wanting to know more about the history of the book's setting and of the the actual historical figures—particularly Eleanor of Aquitaine. Seriously, if yo ...more
I will admit to being a little wary of reading this book because of the tag line comparing it to Outlander. Not that Outlander is bad, but I'm slightly afraid of the historical aspect.
I really liked this cast of characters, especially Hope. She's quite possibly the smartest person ever and sort of awkward and it was entertaining reading her figure everything out. I always love when someone who was totally underestimated rules everything.
The overall story is quite interesting and I was instantly ...more
I'm not sure why there are so many time travel books based in Scotland. Pretty sure I need to start roaming the highlands (but with a backpack full of antibiotics and/or something to cut a fever because I PLAN AHEAD, CHILDREN). Anyways, I could probably write both a 2-star and a 5-star review, so I'm going with 3.5 stars.
What I *think* was the plot: Hope is a girl who has a lot of anxieties, so her mom kept her out of the loop about her time traveling. When her mom goes missing (presumed dead), ...more
I expected good things from this book, and I was let down BIG TIME! Honestly, I’m creating a Disappointing shelf because of this book….Aaargh. Only about 20-ish pages in and I was already considering DNFing it, but luckily for the book I had decided from this month onward to completely finish any book I read. However, unluckily for me the book did not get better and it was a struggle to complete even though I did finish it in two days, mainly because I wanted it over and done with.
I’m a big fan ...more
