Time Travel Thursday

It’s Time Travel Thursday! This is where I take a look back at what I was reading this time last year (or the year before or the year before that…) and compare it to what I am reading now.

This day in 2021 I was reading:

Book Review – Autumn Leaves – A Chick Lit Anthology

Plot Summary:

A chick lit anthology of 6 short stories taking place in Autumn.

The first story is about a couple where the man is certain that his partner is being unfaithful, the second story is about a journalist falling for her temporary cameraman, the third story is about a woman running a marathon and trying to leave her problems behind, the fourth story is about a woman who has returned home due to difficulties and things seem to get worse when she is confronted by her childhood enemy, the fifth story is about two friends who end up getting married, but there is only love on one side of the relationship and lastly the sixth story is about a woman coming home to look after her sick mother and realising what she has missed.

Fast Forward To Today:

Someone in Time by Jonathan Strahan (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description:

Even time travel can’t unravel love

Time-travel is a way for writers to play with history and imagine different futures – for better, or worse.

When romance is thrown into the mix, time-travel becomes a passionate tool, or heart-breaking weapon. A time agent in the 22nd century puts their whole mission at risk when they fall in love with the wrong person. No matter which part of history a man visits, he cannot not escape his ex. A woman is desperately in love with the time-space continuum, but it doesn’t love her back. As time passes and falls apart, a time-traveller must say goodbye to their soulmate.

With stories from best-selling and award-winning authors such as Seanan McGuire, Alix E. Harrow and Nina Allan, this anthology gives a taste for the rich treasure trove of stories we can imagine with love, loss and reunion across time and space.

Including stories by: Alix E. Harrow, Zen Cho, Seanan McGuire, Sarah Gailey, Jeffrey Ford, Nina Allan, Elizabeth Hand, Lavanya Lakshminarayan, Catherynne M. Valente, Sam J. Miller, Rowan Coleman, Margo Lanagan, Sameem Siddiqui, Theodora Goss, Carrie Vaughn, Ellen Klages

Keeping A Christmas Promise by Jo Thomas (click for link to Goodreads)

Book Description:

“Four friends
Twenty-five years ago, Freya and her three best friends created a bucket list. The future seemed bright, full of hope and most importantly guaranteed . . .

One promise
Now they are travelling to Iceland in memory of the friend they’ve lost, determined to fulfil her dream of seeing the Northern Lights at Christmas.

A life-changing adventure
They didn’t count on an avalanche leaving them stranded! Handsome local, Pétur, comes to the rescue, showing them how the community survives the hard winter. With Christmas approaching, Freya and her friends throw themselves into the festivities, decorating and cooking for the villagers using delicious local ingredients.

But will the Northern Lights appear so they can honour their friend’s wish? And can Freya’s own dreams come true, this Christmas?”

Comparison:

I was trying to read seasonally last year and came across this chick lit anthology. I enjoyed reading them. I am currently reading short stories which is strange because I very rarely read them and to be reading them at the same time as last year I find a bit spooky! I have only just started this Christmas book. I usually would wait until December, but it is a Blog Tour book so I have to read and review according to the date that I was given.
