Series Sunday: The Girl From Everywhere

(The Girl From Everywhere #1)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is The Girl From Everywhere, the first book in the series of same name by Heidi Heilig. At only 16 years old, Nix has sailed across the globe through centuries on her father's time-traveling ship, The Temptation. She has traveled to Scandinavia, New York and more places with the help of her father's handy dandy map. They can go to any place at any time. But there is only one place Nix's father wants to go: back to 1868 Honolulu before Nix's mother died in childbirth. It is possible changing the past will affect Nix's future life.

"Instead, the crew generally celebrated my theft day sometime in early summer, whenever we spent a few days in a place where it was early summer." ~ 7%

Unique story. Different premise. Just not interesting enough. Sure it seems cool to travel from 1774 to 1981 to 1868 but make the trips worthwhile and the characters memorable. Certainly if the book is over 400 pages. Bookhearts know I am not a fan of fantasy but this was not out of my comfort zone. Perhaps because the story takes place on a ship which is my kind of setting! The Girl From Everywhere is a mix of fantasy, history and adventure. Still it did not grab my attention.

Even though The Girl From Everywhere is only a two-book series, I have no interest in reading the conclusion.
