Flirt Squad Challenge Week 3: Where Would Reyna Send You?

by - 9:39 AM


As you guys can tell by the title of this post, this is going to be another Flirt Squad challenge to promote A Tale of Two Centuries, the second book in the My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century series by Rachel Harris.

This week it's all about time travel, since that's a HUGE theme that runs through the novels. Reyna is the gypsy girl that has the power and pizzazz to take your hearts desires and make them come true! So, we were asked to think about where we'd want Reyna to send us!

I had a hard time thinking about this one, and then I remembered that it could be a temporary trip. So, with that in mind. I decided I want to go back to 13th/14th century Scotland.

The scenery, the kilts, the bagpipes, the accents, the castles... the bloodshed. Ok, that last one I'm not looking forward too as much, but I'm hoping that my trip would come out to be less bloody than some of the stories I hear about Scotland.

Every year here in my state of Connecticut we have a few Scottish festivals and it almost feels as if I travel back in time for those. I haven't been to one in a few years but I'm hoping to go again this year.

 Now, as for that time period - I've always liked it. I like the ruggedness, the fact that countries were still being discovered that traditions weren't THAT blended (compared to today.) Everything was more raw, more original. I want to see the roots of where people come from.

Here's a little historical video about Scottish dialects. :) 

And here's a little shout out to my favorite two Scotsman: Zachary Moore and Martin Connelly! It was Martin's birthday a few days ago so go wish him happy birthday! 

So - where in the world, or rather WHEN in the world would you have Reyna send you? I can't wait to hear about it! 

A Tale of Two Centuries (My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century #2)
Rachel Harris
Entangled Teen; August 6th, 2013
Paperback; 320 pages.

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?

And the wonderful author!
