Book Blogger Hop Day: July 29-31

Book Blogger Hop is a place just for book bloggers and readers to connect and share our love of the written word! This weekly BOOK PARTis an awesome opportunity for book bloggers to connect with other book lovers, make new friends, support each other, and generally just share our love of books!

This week's question is:

“Highlight one book you have received this week (for review, from the library, purchased at the store, etc.) that you can’t wait to dig into!”

My Answer: Another tough question! I've purchased so many great books the past week, but if I must narrow it down to a single book, it would have to be Ruby Red by Kerstin Gier.  I'm really excited about this book because it was a bestseller in Germany before it even came to the United States.  The story sounds fascinating and the cover is very beautiful.  Here is the book cover and summary from Goodreads.com:


Gwyneth Shepherd's sophisticated, beautiful cousin Charlotte has been prepared her entire life for traveling through time. But unexpectedly, it is Gwyneth, who in the middle of class takes a sudden spin to a different era! Gwyneth must now unearth the mystery of why her mother would lie about her birth date to ward off suspicion about her ability, brush up on her history, and work with Gideon, the time traveler from a similarly gifted family that passes the gene through its male line, and whose presence becomes, in time, less insufferable and more essential. Together, Gwyneth and Gideon journey through time to discover who, in the 18th century and in contemporary London, they can trust.

Awesome story, right?  And it's part of a trilogy, which means book number two will be coming out soon.  Be on the lookout for Sapphire Blue!
