I received Ruby Red from a fellow Litten whose daughter loved it and is also a huge Sherlock Holmes 🕵️‍♂️ fan. It was a great fit for me. It was my favorite read of the challenge until I finished the audio of book 2, Sapphire Blue. Now I can‘t choose.

#NeverEver did I think I'd attempt to sort my books according to the colours of their spines. Well, now that I have started I feel like I should do it properly.

Picture shows only half of my books on this shelf, the other side houses most of my hardbacks and notebooks.

Kalalalatja I feel the same way about rainbow shelves. They look pretty, but I would be able to find anything 😅 6mo

Hi everyone! How's everyone weekend going? I wasn't feeling great today. I've been getting major headaches from allergies. I stayed in bed and listened to the whole audio Book of Ruby Red. I loved this book. This story about Gwen she learns she can time travel. I'm very excited to read the next book. #litsy #kindle #kindlefire #paperwhite

Alright...I didn't hate this as much as I thought I would lol I actually like the way they used time travel and I didn't HATE the characters! The romance felt pretty forced and just thrown in but my interest is definitely peaked enough to read book 2

I kinda hate this cover BUT there's time travel so...I gotta give it a shot

Zelma Theses are supposed to be a lot of fun, so ignore the cover. It falls in the unfortunate marketing strategy of pretty girl in a fancy dress. 9mo
Sammichaels I actually love that cover, lol, especially the red dress xx 9mo
Bookgoil Read this one ages ago and liked it but never finished the trilogy! 9mo
SassenachTheBookWizard @Zelma that marketing is the bane of my existence! 9mo
SassenachTheBookWizard @Bookgoil I picked the boxset up like 2 years ago on BookOutlet so figured I need to finally give it a go! 9mo

Ruby Red trilogy, book one.

Charlotte has spent her life studying and practicing to travel through time, but her cousin Gwyneth, sheltered and totally unprepared, is the one who finds herself popping back and forth in time.

Translated from the original German.

I'm giving Ruby Red ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️. The story has a fun juvenile feel to it, which is not horrible if that's what you are looking for. I think my daughter would enjoy it. I am enjoying the mystery of the whole story and will be reading the next book in the trilogy.

TamarackTrail My niece wanted this series for Christmas. Is it appropriate for an 11 year old? 2y
See All 6 Comments
LibrarianRyan @TamarackTrail I think so. A girl gets her first kiss but that is about it. I have only read the first book. I don't remember anything standing out as too old. 2y
TamarackTrail @LibrarianRyan thanks a lot. The cover I found looked like it would be for an older age so I was hesitant. She's definitely a future Litsy user, so it's hard for me to keep up with her "already read" pile ? 2y
LibrarianRyan @TamarackTrail the paper back have the girls in dresses that does make it look older. If I remember the main character is about 15. I hope she likes them. I loved the first one and wasn't expecting to. 2y

Finished this audiobook while running my kids to practices. I love the idea of time traveling and was excited for this fantasy YA. I wish the book spent more time in different eras but I am hopeful that the next two books will do that! Great narration!

I read this book (series) about two years ago and absolutely loved it!!! Ruby Red is such a funfilled easy read. Fantastic story, lovable characters, beautiful setting, sweet romance, a bit of mystery, and a lot of laughs. Oh and there's also movies!! It's in German and I've only seen the first one, but I enjoyed it!

Ich habe so eben "Rubinrot" von Kerstin Gier beendet?
Und was soll ich sagen? Ich bin absolut begeistert?
Ich finde die Protagonisten in diesem Buch total sympathisch.
Er - Gideon, ein kleiner "Kotzbrocken" und die liebe Qwendolyn, ein total nettes Mädchen, was mit der Situation noch gar nicht zurecht kommt.
Ich muss echt sagen, dass mir auch der Schreibstil sehr gefallen hat.
Jetzt bin ich gespannt, wie der 2. Teil sein wird, fange gleich an!❤

Heyy beautiful people!

This book is a light read, but fun because of the time traveling element. The book had me wondering what would happen. Each of the characters was planned out nicely. I cannot wait to get my hands on the next two books to see how everything gets resolved and so I can know the secret to the secret.

Es ist schon eine Weile her, seit ich dieses Buch gelesen habe aber ich versuche es mal aus meiner heutigen Sicht zu bewerten.
Was ich an diesem Buch so toll fand, waren die Zeitsprünge. Ich mochte auch die Kodex Einträge die zwischen den Kapitel zu lesen waren.
Über den Schreibstil kann ich nur sagen, dass ich diese Bücher damals ziemlich schnell gelesen hatte und es somit einfach aber trotzdem Spannend geschrieben war.
[4/5]

luthiens.world 💚 [EN] It's already been a while since I read that book but I try to rate it from my current view. I really liked the idea of the time jumps and I really enjoyed reading the codex entries in between the chapters. About the writing style I can stay I read those books pretty fast back then. So the writing is rather simple but nonetheless interesting. 2y

This book is without a doubt one of the best books I've read in quite some time.
It has an interesting plot, witty and (mostly) lovable characters and *drumroll* TIME 'FREAKING' TRAVEL! What else could you wish for?

And #finally I finished #Ruby #Red!! The reason I picked so-so is because I #believe the #book to be slow-paced though I understand that's what needs to happen when you're #doing #major world-building. I found the protagonist to be likeable, the secrets behind her abilities shocking and her growing attachment with Gideon...understandable. I loved the twist in the end, though I saw it coming... All in all, great mythology and a compelling #novel!
