Book Review: Sapphire Blue
Sapphire Blue (The Ruby Red, #2) - Kerstin Gier,Anthea Bell

Book: Sapphire Blue

 

Author: Kerstin Gier

 

Genre: Teen/Sci Fi/Time Travel/Romance

 

Summary: Gwen’s life has been a roller coaster since she discovered she was the Ruby, the final member of the time-traveling Circle of Twelve. When not searching through history for the other time travelers and asking for a bit of their blood (gross!), she’s been trying to figure out what all the mysteries and prophecies surrounding the Circle really mean. It’s not easy when a secret society, a dangerous Count, and her own time-traveling partner, Gideon, are determined to keep her from the truth. Especially since Gwen can’t decide whether Gideon really believes she’s a traitor to the Circle or might actually be on her side - and creeping into her heart. -Square Fish, 2010.

I thought this was a good second book to the trilogy. I am not sure where the third and final book is going to go.

 

Gwyn has only known about her ability to time travel for a few days. She starts to go on missions with Gideon. She is trying to establish her new life with her new ability. She also may be starting to fall for Gideon..

Hello friends! :)

 Here is what I read for the month of September! Also, my apologies for forgetting to write an August Wrap-up. Lets do this:

 

12 books total

 

 

The Sisters' Grimm Series (Books 1 and 2): The Fairy-Tale Detectives, The Unusual Suspects by: Michael Buckley- This is a middle grade fantasy series. It is about two sisters who are descended from the Grimm brothers. Their parents go missing and they are sent to live with their grandmother in a city where all of the fairy-tale characters are forced to live. The girls must solve mysteries in this town in order to find the group that kidnapped their parents. I loved these books. They were quick to read and they were really funny! The plot is well developed but, the characters need work. One in particular is very inconsistent. Other than that, I really enjoyed them. I will be continuing on with this series at a later date!

 

Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard- I already reviewed this book in a previous post which can be found here. I won't get into all of the details but, this book just didn't live up to my expectations. There wasn't enough originality for me in fact, up until now, I forgot I even read it.

 

Miss. Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by: Ransom Riggs- I also did a review for this book, it can be found here. Once again this book just fell short of my expectations. I didn't like the characters, I didn't like how slow the story moved. This was just the wrong book for me.

 

Sapphire Blue By: Kerstin Gier- There is a review up for this book, found here. I have loved this series so far! Love everything about it! The characters are great and the books are just hilarious!

 

Strawberry Shortcake Murder by: Joanne Fluke- This is book two of the Hannah Swenson mystery series. I love, love, love these books! Humorous, mysterious, addictive. They are always what I go for when I feel like reading a mystery. It's like Nancy Drew but its for grownups!

 

Diary of a Jackwagon by: Tim Hawkins- I received this book in exchange for an honest review. The review can be found here. This is a hilarious book written by a famous christian comedian. It is a collection of some of his skits and it gives a little background information on how he comes up with his skits!

 

My War: A Love story in letters and Drawings by: Tracy Sugarman- This is a nonfiction account of WWII through the letters that an American naval officer wrote to his wife. During his deployment he also painted and drew some of his surroundings. This was a great book! I had never read a first hand account of someone who was involved in the Normandy invasions, it was quite and eye opener!

 

The Wrath and The Dawn by: Renee Ahdieh- This is probably going to be one of my favorite books of the year! I enjoyed it so much! I gave it a five out of five stars! So much mystery and the characters are great, and the plot is absolutely fantastic!

 

Owls: Our Most Charming Bird by: Matt Sewell- I received this book in exchange for and honest review which can found here. This is the cutest book! It has the cutest owl illustrations and witty little descriptions of each owl. It is cheeky and creative!

 

A Heart's Home by: Colleen Coble- I received this book in exchange for an honest review, which can be found here. This turned out to be the continuation of a series, which I wasn't informed of until after it arrived. So, I went in knowing nothing about the character's and I was very confused through most of the book. That caused my rating to be lower than it might have been had I read the whole series previously.

 

The Importance of Being Earnest by: Oscar Wilde- This was a fantastic book! I had to read it for school, and I think it is probably the funniest book I have ever read for school. I would compare the humor in this to the humor in Jane Austen's books. Jane Austen's comedy mostly focuses on manners in a much more subtle way, whereas Wilde blatantly pokes fun at the manners represented in both his time period, as well as his own social class. Phenomenal read!

 

 

Thank you so much for reading this Wrap-up! I love writing these because, I like looking back at what I read each month and bringing back all of the feelings associated with each book.

 

Yours Truly, signing off!

Review: Sapphire Blue by: Kerstin Gier
Sapphire Blue - Kerstin Gier

*I solemnly swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me God*

 

Publishing Information: Henry Holt and Company, LLC, December 2009

 

Safety Rating: PG (There may have been one or two bad words. Suggested for ages...12+)

 

    This is the second book in the Ruby Red Trilogy. I love this series! I love the characters and how they interact. I love the time-travel element it all goes together so well!

     So right of the bad I want to say...Ew! Charlotte gets on my last nerve, she is so rude! And can I please have a read life version of Gideon? He is definitely being added to the Book Boyfriend list! I would say this book is just as good as the first book, no better, no worse! Thanks for reading!

 

Yours Truly, signing off!

The Strawberry Shortcake Murder & The Blueberry Muffin Murder By: Joanne Fluke-These are books two and three in the Hannah Swensen Mystery Series. I read the first book, The Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder a couple of months ago.

 

The Old Man and the Sea by: Ernest Hemingway- I don't really have a reason for picking this up, I just grabbed it because I saw that it was written by Hemingway. I have been wanting to read something of his for a while and this seemed like the perfect choice. It is super short and I am currently reading it so I should be done with it soon!

Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by: Ransom Riggs- This book has been on my TBR for ages! I finally grabbed it and cannot wait to read it!

 

Sapphire Blue by: Kerstin Gier- A couple of weeks ago I read Ruby Red and I adored it, so I went ahead and grabbed the second book too!

 

Red Queen by: Victoria Aveyard- This book came out at the beginning of the year and I have wanted to read it ever since I first heard about it!

 

The Raven Boys by: Maggie Stiefvater- I have heard so much about this book that I finally decided to pick it up!

 

The Clockwork Angel by: Cassandra Clare- I don't know why I grabbed this book. But the name is awesome!

 

These are all of the books I got this go 'round. I picked up quite a few, I look forward to being able to read them! I am also looking forward to receiving some books for review that aren't galley copies, reviews will be posted as soon as I read them! Thanks so much for reading!!

 

Yours truly, signing off!
