Okay! So it's the 27th now, and I'm ready to write my review. The first thing that should be apparent is that I loved this book. I gave it 5/5 stars, and it kept me up into the ridiculous hours of the night on both of the days that I read it. I recommend it to all!
Now, let's break it up.
Firstly, plot. One of the main reasons I loved this book was because it was constantly exciting. The plot kept up at a grea ...more
Consider checking out Tatiana's review before reading this book, as I should have done. Because there's nothing terribly wrong with Ruby Red other than the fact that it feels very young and immature. I think I would have loved this about 10 years ago, but now the silliness and mental age of the narrator is off-putting.
The characters are in their mid-to-late teens but all of them feel like middle school kids. Take these two early scenes:
Mr Whitman took Gordon's test back from him, turned ...more
Gwyneth is a member of the family of time-travelers. Every other generation or so her family produces a girl who starts uncontrollably t ...more
It's a pretty unique time traveling plot that almost reads like middle grade at times, but the story is fun enough that that doesn't ruin anything.
It starts out in modern times with Gwyneth watching her cousin train to be a time traveler. One person in each generation in their large family is born with the ability to travel back in time (they can't control it -- they just suddenly vanish) and everyone assumes ...more
I just love this trilogy! It's funny, it's witty, it's super surprising and clever. If I need something to cheer me up I just know that the Precious Stone trilogy is the right thing to read. I just flip through the pages and hours go by unnoticed. Which is why it's one of my favourites. The plot is so light and fast-paced, this is easi ...more
Well, this was quite interesting and unique! I haven't read anything like this yet! I didn't love it as much as other young adult books out there, but I think that's mainly because I listened to this as an audiobook, which I've never done before. It took me a while to get used to the reader's posh British accent but eventually I really got into it! The story is centered in England so it was kind of fitting anyway.
First of all, I loved the whole time traveling idea and ...more
Before I delve into this review I first want to point something out - I should NEVER have picked up this book. Why you may ask? Well, because this does not even remotely sound like a book I would enjoy. The blurb alone would be evidence enough of that, two particular sentences stand out the most:
"can spend her time hanging out with her best friend, Lesley, watching movies and talking about boys."
Oh and it gets worse...
"He's obnoxious, a know-it-all, and possibly the best-looking guy she's seen i ...more
All right synopsis first: Gwen is a sixteen-year-old girl who lives in London (the book was written in German originally so I'm not sure why that setting was chosen). Normal enough, but she comes from a family who can time-travel. Thankfully the gene bypassed her and was given t ...more
“If we were in a film, the villain would turn out to be the least-expected person. But as we aren’t in a film, I’d go for the character who tried to strangle you.”
It was an enjoyable read.
I liked this book. It was fast paced and a cute story. I would lie if I say I like the majority of the characters. I felt a little sad for Gwendolyn because almost everyone around her acted like spoiled brats however, I'd survive anything if I had a best friend like Leslie.
Overall it was a short and quick r ...more
“Ready when you are.”
Ruby red, with G major, the magic of the raven, brings the Circle of Twelve home into safe haven.
This book is incredibly mind-blowing.
Time travel. Chronograph. Ghost-encounter.
With a good amount of suspense and mystery.
I definitely feel like this was a great opening and solid setup for the rest of the trilogy; but while it was incredibly fun there was definitely no rising action or climax in the story. It was also a bit predictable (seriously, I saw that twist coming from the prologue) but I love Gwen (and her friendship with Lesley!) so much that that didn't bother me as much as it usually does. I liked figur ...more
Gwyneth is a 16 years old school girl. She was raised in a family full of secrets where her cousin Charlotte was the center of attention and care. After all, she was the gene carrier. She can travel back in time and thus she should be prepared. Gwyneth never envied her, though. She always helped Charlotte who was pretty much arrogant. But she was going through a lot, right? She has to learn everything about the past, learn new languages and maintain high grades. Until all her efforts
I can seriously not express my love for this book. Maybe a five star rating is a little bit too much but literally my mind is blown at this moment!!
I flew right through it, and there was a point about mid way through the book where I was kinda confused but not once was the writing ever bad.
Die Charaktere waren sympathisch, vielfältig und teilweise auch etwas unheimlich.
Die Geschichte hat mir bisher sehr gut gefallen. Ich habe immer mit unseren Hauptprotagonisten mitgefiebert.
Ich kann gar nicht so recht glauben, dass ich so lange gebraucht habe, um diese Trilogie zu beginnen. Ich freue mich schon auf den 2. Te ...more
Όμως κάπου το γλυκό δεν έδεσε. Tο περίμενα πολύ καλύτερο, διότι πάνω από το μισό βιβλίο έχει αρκετά αργή πλοκή, πολλές περιτ ...more
I'll definitely change my rating through time, because right now I feel fluffy inside (I just finished the book) and I NEED MORE.
I believe this series will become a favorite of mine!
Sí,me gustó, me gustó, me gustó y muuuuucho.
En Ruby Red nos encontramos con una historia sobre viajeros del tiempo. Se centra en la vida de Gwendolyn, una adolescente de 16 años que al parecer nunca imaginó que ella podía ser la portadora del "especial gen familiar". Este gen especial es poder viajar al pasado. Cuando ocurre el llamado salto (que sería cambiar de una época a otra) puede estar 10 segundos, 30 minutos o 3 horas en el mismo lugar en el que se encontraba antes de saltar pero en otra ...more
Unpopular opinion time!
I came so incredibly close to DNF-ing this. A bunch of my friends gave lovely reviews to this book but I saw Rachel had given it a one star and I was immediately apprehensive. We tend to have similar taste, especially with fantasy (and wedding dresses) or whatever the hell this was so I should have known better.
I have never been so bored with a fantasy novel. I kept waiting for something to happen and it never did. Yes, we get that Gwyneth is is special and she has powers ...more
Warum das Buch eines der besten Jugendbücher ist und ihr es deshalb lesen solltet?
1. Der humorvolle Schreibstil
Zunächst einmal die ganzen Wortspiele. Wie beispielsweise "... dass in der Vergangenheit nicht mehr alles so ist wie es mal war" Dann die unglaublich witzigen Stellen, in denen versucht wird, die deutschen Tempora anzuwenden. Aber Konjunktiv mit Vergangenheit UND Futur ist eben nicht möglich ^^ Wenn etwas schon passiert ist, was noch passieren wird... Außerdem die lustigen, f ...more
Well, this was indeed quite lovely. I had a lot of fun reading this book, and it was the perfect read at the perfect time, since I am still emotionally scarred by Captive Prince.
Ruby Red is what I would recommend if you're in a reading slump and trying to get out of it, if you are stressed and need something quick and funny to read or if, like me, you've just finished reading an emotionally challenging book. At first I wasn't really fond of the writing, since it's extremely simplistic ( ...more
This book is SO. GOOD. Buy it--don't even wait to read this review. Just run to the nearest store or library and start reading.
First of all, Gwyneth is one of the most likable heroines ever. Yes, truly. Ever. She's hilarious, brave, cleve ...more
