Blog Tour: My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century by Rachel Harris




So happy to be apart of this magnificent blog tour. I received and ARC of this book and I was extremely excited to begin reading it. Once I found out there was going to be a blog tour, I just had to sign up for it! 



On the precipice of her sixteenth birthday, the last thing lone wolf Cat Crawford wants is an extravagant gala thrown by her bubbly stepmother and well-meaning father. So even though Cat knows the family’s trip to Florence, Italy, is a peace offering, she embraces the magical city and all it offers. But when her curiosity leads her to an unusual gypsy tent, she exits . . . right into Renaissance Firenze
Thrust into the sixteenth century armed with only a backpack full of contraband future items, Cat joins up with her ancestors, the sweet Alessandra and protective Cipriano, and soon falls for the gorgeous aspiring artist Lorenzo. But when the much-older Niccolo starts sniffing around, Cat realizes that an unwanted birthday party is nothing compared to an unwanted suitor full of creeptastic amore
Can she find her way back to modern times before her Italian adventure turns into an Italian forever?



Release: Sept. 11, 2012 | Publisher: Entangled Publishing | Purchase: Amazon | BookDepository




As a teen, Rachel Harris threw raging parties that shook her parents’ walls and created embarrassing fodder for future YA novels.

As an adult, she reads and writes obsessively, rehashes said embarrassing fodder, and dreams up characters who become her own grown up version of imaginary friends.

When she's not typing furiously or flipping pages in an enthralling romance, you can find her homeschooling her two beautiful princesses, hanging out with her amazing husband, or taking a hot bubble bath…next to a pile of chocolate.

MY SUPER SWEET SIXTEENTH CENTURY is her debut novel.  She did have her own fantabulous Sweet Sixteen in high school. Sadly, it wasn't televised.

I found one of the characters Lorenzo to be absolutely yummy! 


I am one of those girls where I am extremely happy with a good book. I loved this book so much! What I loved about it was the magical realism behind it. The style reminded me of the New York Times best selling author Francesca Lia Block, who's novels are very popular because it contains the essence of  magical realism. I love books that deal with magical realism I find them to be absolutely wonderful!
