    I don’t think I’ve read any time travel books, apart from Outlander. I think I would give this one a try. It sounds like Jill is dealing with emotions that I think most of women, no matter how happily married, go through. I’d like to see how she deals withit.

    • Ooh! Outlander is a good one. I also read Dragonfly in Amber and I believe one other of the books in the series, though I am not sure which one now.

      She is dealing with what a lot of women go through with marriages or long term relationships- when thing aren’t as fresh and exciting as they once were. Given the relationships he had and her particular issues I was really interested to see what she would decide.

    • I agree with you Kay. It really wasn’t fantastical except for the fact that she went back in time, etc. But that wasn’t the concentration and it was much more about real themes and life issues. I thought a lot while reading it.

    • I think I like that idea. I would be a little afraid to test it out. There would be some things I wouldn’t want to lose and once you start making decisions I don’t know that you can preserve anything.

  2. I love a little time travel! Or maybe I’ve been watching too much Dr. Who. :-) I normally would not gravitate towards a book like this (unrelated to the time travel aspect), but after reading your review, I’m really curious. I haven’t yet read Time Traveler’s Wife, but since I promised a friend I would at least try it, I do plan to. Thanks for the great review.

    • I think both this and the Time Traveler’s Wife raise deeper issues that are raised because of the time travel aspect, but are also completely unrelated at the same time. TTW had a lot of hot button issues for me. I would be interested to see what you think because I know a lot of people think romance and I really don’t agree.

    • You will definitely reflect. I wanted to say that I would do things differently when I was getting a little impatient with the character, but I’m not really sure.

    • It’s one of those books where you would like to see what happens, but you also wonder how you would handle the same situations. It was interesting.

    Dear participant of the genre challenge,

    I am happy to announce that the genre challenge blog is finally up and running! Due to some real life problems, this has taken longer than planned, but now that it’s finished, I invite you over to post your reviews there. It’s at http://genrechallenge.blogspot.com/

    The process is really simple, just post the link to your review in the comments of the appropriate post. An example: if you reviewed a fantasy book for the genre challenge, post the review in the comments of the Fantasy Fiction Reviews 2008-2009 post.

    Because of the transfer from my general book blog to the genre challenge blog, some review links might have become lost, so please check to see if all of your reviews have been linked. If not, please repost the links I missed. According to my information, you haven’t posted any links yet. Also, I have not yet had a confirmation on which option you chose (A, B or C) Just to remind you, to be eligible for the prize drawing, all of your reviews must be posted before 1 November 2009 and I need to know which option you have chosen.

    Thanks for joining this challenge!

    Happy reading,

    Samantha

  4. Your review helped me decide that I definitely want to read this book sooner rather than later! I came across the author’s bloh in my first few days in the blogosphere back in July and was intrigued but unsure what to expect of her books. I have since read some reviews of her book and entered a few giveaways but still wasn’t sure how much I really wanted to read this book. Thank you for figure out for sure!

    I have read several recommendations of your blog from bloggers on this first day of BBAW. I’m so happy I came by to visit. The list of books on your sidebar and authors speaks to my reading interests. I’ll be back to visit your blog many times!
    Thank you!

    • Thank you Amy for stopping by and I am glad that I could help you make a decision and show you some things you might like. I look forward to our visits.

      I have to tell you that the cats pics on your blog are adorable. They were distracting me from the reviews which are great as well. I just love that post that you did with the different covers. They all look like great books. Sense and Sensibility had the dullest cover for me, and this is coming from an Austen fan.

  5. I am SO glad that Kathy mentioned you on her short list today. Somehow my link to your blog was broken and I have missed visiting you. It is all repaired now and I plan to be a regular follower once again!!

  6. Great review, Nicole! I’m so happy you enjoyed Time of My Life and I really appreciate the time and thought you put into reading and reviewing the book. Thanks so much!

    • You’re so welcome. It was a great book. I am going to have to stop judging books by their cover because I never would have thought that I would get a story like that with a cover like the one on the book.

    • Hi Susan! Thank you so much for stopping by. I had the chance to browse your blog today and I know that I will be back- I’ve added you to my reader as well. I hope that you are enjoying BBAW!

  7. I can’t say I’ve read that many time travel books, but if you like them, you should read Timeline by Michael Crichton (just block the movie adaptation from your mind). It’s a bit sci-fi but medieval France = awesome!

    • I’ll have to give one of his books a try at some point. Medieval France does sound fun. Once I saw Jurassic Park I just never really thought of reading his books.

  8. Oh, I’m so glad you liked it! As you know, I liked it as well. :)

    I think your review, though, brings out the depthness (is that a word?) in the book. While this book is probably categorized as chick lit, and while it was a really fun read, I think it deals with some heavy topics in a very realistic manner.
