Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier

8835379

I just finished Ruby Red, again. It was on sale on Audible for $4.99 a few weeks ago when they were having a sale for first books in a series. I had previously read it in 2011 (post here about how I was excited for book 2) and I received the advanced reader copy at ALA that year so I even own book 2!

Ruby Red is a German translation about Gwyneth, a sixteen year old in London who finds out she’s a time traveler! Her cousin, Charlotte, was the supposed ‘chosen one’ for the time traveling gene in her family but it turns out that was a mistake. Gwyneth knows nothing about time travel or the circle of time travelers she’s meant to meet in the past with the help of her traveling companion, Gideon. Everything in this story happens within the span of 2-5 days and book 2, Sapphire Blue, picks up exactly where book 1 ends, which I like. Because it’s so quick in time it also reads very quickly. I’m shoving on to book 2 right now, immediately so I don’t stall and crash like I did in 2011. I’m listening and have the print book at my house as a back up if I become enthralled. On a positive note, book 3, Emerald Green, has already been released whereas if I read them in 2011 I would have had to wait.
