Waiting on Wednesday (#18): A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris


"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.


This week, I'm featuring:

A Tale of Two Centuries (My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century, #2)

A Tale of Two Centuries by Rachel Harris
 Book Two of the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series
Publisher: Entangled Teen
Publication Date: August 6, 2013

Summary (from Goodreads):

Alessandra D’Angeli is in need of an adventure. Tired of her sixteenth-century life in Italy and homesick for her time-traveling cousin, Cat, who visited her for a magical week and dazzled her with tales of the future, Alessandra is lost. Until the stars hear her plea.

One mystical spell later, Alessandra appears on Cat’s Beverly Hills doorstep five hundred years in the future. Surrounded by confusing gadgets, scary transportation, and scandalous clothing, Less is hesitant to live the life of a twenty-first century teen…until she meets the infuriating—and infuriatingly handsome—surfer Austin Michaels. Austin challenges everything she believes in…and introduces her to a world filled with possibility.

With the clock ticking, Less knows she must live every moment of her modern life while she still can. But how will she return to the drab life of her past when the future is what holds everything she’s come to love?




Truth is, I loved Rachel Harris's debut, My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century! So, I cannot wait to read this awesome-sounding sequel! This time, it's a girl from the sixteenth century coming to modern times, instead of the other way around. So, I am excited! :D

What are you waiting on? Leave me a comment!

  2. This one.. Yeah, I'm not so much on time travel, but this sounds acutally nice. But since I'm always reluctant about the topic, I guess someone actually has to shove this into my hand or it'll just rot on my pile...
