    1. In my sixteen years on this earth, no guy had ever, ever flirted with me The redneck boys where I was from preferred girls like my cheerleader cousins Size two Blond Busty Brainless.This book is being marketed as Outlander for teens It isn t It s a serious insult to teens to say they re incapable of appreciating anything beyond this cliched, slut shaming drivel.Time travel doesn t even rear its head until the poor reader me has sat through pages and pages of innate, inexplicable specialness, mys [...]


    2. When the thees, thous and wherefores sprang naturally from my lips, I felt a pang of gratitude for my mother s insistence that I master all those archaic languages What s with all the time travel books lately Is it because of the popularity of Outlander Is time travel the new vampire or something It s a tough subject around which to write a book, and it can go wrong in many ways This book is an example of how time travel can be fucked up.To be clear, I do not expect this book to be anywhere clos [...]


    3. I m not sure why there are so many time travel books based in Scotland Pretty sure I need to start roaming the highlands but with a backpack full of antibiotics and or something to cut a fever because I PLAN AHEAD, CHILDREN Anyways, I could probably write both a 2 star and a 5 star review, so I m going with 3.5 stars.What I think was the plot Hope is a girl who has a lot of anxieties, so her mom kept her out of the loop about her time traveling When her mom goes missing presumed dead , Hope goes [...]

    7. Oh, this was so much fun Henry II Eleonor of Aquitaine are my favorite historical figures and the chance to travel back to their world was thrilling This is similar to Outlander in that the present time period is set in Scotland along with the traveling through time, but that is where the similiaries end Obviously, the main difference is that this is geared toward YA audiences, so it s language is lighter and modern The time traveling, also, in this had of a purpose I really recommend this if [...]


    8. Source I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read to review basis Thanks to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children s Book Group and NetGalley All the air whooshed from my lungs as I stared into my mother s face, woven into an object that was nearly nine hundred years old This was a YA sci fi story about a girl who had to travel back into the past to rescue her missing mother.Hope was a strong character in this book who never gave up It was quite interesting to learn about her eidetic [...]


    9. 4 of 5 stars at the BiblioSanctum While Into the Dim is not without its flaws like calling it an Outlander for teens might be a bit of a stretch , there s still no denying this book has its charms The story is impressively robust for a YA time traveling book, and what it lacks in world building and logistical explanations, it makes up for with pure entertainment and plenty of fun twists along the way I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed myself.Most of this story actually takes place [...]


    10. I will admit to being a little wary of reading this book because of the tag line comparing it to Outlander Not that Outlander is bad, but I m slightly afraid of the historical aspect.I really liked this cast of characters, especially Hope She s quite possibly the smartest person ever and sort of awkward and it was entertaining reading her figure everything out I always love when someone who was totally underestimated rules everything.The overall story is quite interesting and I was instantly int [...]


    11. What aspects should a good novel have My list consists of relatable and in detail developed characters, intriguing world building, emotional moments, addictive plot and preferably a twist or two Into the Dim had none of these What it did have was insta love, boring plot, shallowly written one dimensional characters and stupid narrator who in their right senses would not question why stranger is stalking you and secretly taking your pictures just because of pretty eyes of said stranger Not very a [...]


    12. This review is also posted on my blog, Anatea s Bookshelf Into the Dim is one of those books that left me absolutely confused and I had no idea at first if I liked the book or if it was just another book in the sea of other books that I will forget about in a month Writing the review usually helps me sort out my thoughts It was the same with this one There were a few elements that I liked, but there were like waaaay ones that I didn t like Time travel books are usually complex and to allow some [...]


    13. I d seen quite a bit of hype around this book so I was super excited to start it I was a little put off by the fact that it sounded so much like Outlander time travel and Scotland and that it s marketed as an Outlander for teens but I still wanted to read Into the Dim First off, I love Outlander with very ounce of my being Outlander means so much to me So the fact that Into the Dim pretty much copied the concept of Outlander upsets me It s so similar to Outlander and I couldn t stop comparing th [...]


    14. DNF at 12%I m not in the mood for this.I m sick of protagonists hating Size two Blond Busty Brainless cheerleaders This girl have never even been to a school, never met actual people her own age Who the hell is she to judge ANYONE I am not in the sort of mood to read self important speshul snowflakes.


    15. Just so you know, Eleanor d Aquitaine Alienor Of course I m interested, this historical period always fascinated me I ll still wait for reviews to be posted, though Historical Time Travel YA can be so annoying Please tell me she isn t a special snowflake Please.


    16. Into the Dim is such a lush and enjoyable book The story takes place in two interesting locations, Scotland and London, and the main character is flawed and relatable As if the book isn t already phenomenal, it is written in such a captivating and lyrical way that makes the reader never want to put the book down Into the Dim is a definite must read.This book has one of the most unique settings that I ve seen in YA The story begins in Scotland, which gives it such a romantic and exciting backdrop [...]


    17. Action and history packed, I loved this time travel tale Hope is a real, interesting and badass heroine and the twists and turns of this book kept me turning the pages Such fun


    18. I was lucky enough to read an early copy of INTO THE DIM as part of an ARC tour The setting is lush, the conflict compelling, and the science and magic of time travel is fascinating But my favorite part of this book is the wealth of complex female characters Hope is flawed and full of fears, but she s smart and strong when it counts, and her friends, mother, and aunt represent a diverse range of ways to be kickass at any age And of course, there s Eleanor of Aquitaine, whose sharp tongued wit an [...]


    19. I loved it especially when they were back in twelfth century, London Janet did such an amazing job bringing the time period to life I truly felt like I was time traveling with the main characters, and I enjoyed the historical details Can t wait for the next book


    20. DNF 21% light skimming.I felt absolutely nothing during this story, nor did I like the main character very much It read like another one of those special snowflake stories when the awkward girl doesn t know how pretty or talented she is It s hard not to compare to other books that have made time travelling and ley lines much interesting The romance, too, was boring, and a love triangle in the future seemed imminent Not for me.


    21. I expected good things from this book, and I was let down BIG TIME Honestly, I m creating a Disappointing shelf because of this book.Aaargh Only about 20 ish pages in and I was already considering DNFing it, but luckily for the book I had decided from this month onward to completely finish any book I read However, unluckily for me the book did not get better and it was a struggle to complete even though I did finish it in two days, mainly because I wanted it over and done with.I m a big fan of t [...]


    22. The very first sentence of Into the Dim is Everyone in town knew that the coffin was empty, and it was love at first line I devoured this book and could not believe it when I reached the end Into the Dim has everything that I look for in a Historical Fiction novel actual historical facts twisted into a new and fun plot It actually left me wanting to know about the history of the book s setting and of the the actual historical figures particularly Eleanor of Aquitaine Seriously, if you want to g [...]




    23. An advance copy of this title was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review My thoughts are my own This review can also be found at The Starry Eyed Revue.Not gonna lie I had some high expectations for this book, especially as it being lauded as the Outlander for the YA set It definitely did read a lot younger than I m used to, even for a young adult novel But Outlander it was not For one thing, I was almost 40% into the story before the time travelling became an actuality And it [...]


    24. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of INTO THE DIM What drew me to it were the promises of time travel and vivid glimpses into history, and it delivered on those beautifully But there was something in this story I wasn t expecting the voice The heroine has one of those voices I could listen to or follow to any point in time for another 500 pages after the story ended It s strong, unique, and rings so true I was able to suspend my disbelief and follow the author through this amazing action pack [...]


    25. This was ok The cheesy romance ruined it for me though Also the main character is not likeable enough


    26. Original Post Into the Dim at FLYL F flylef AT THE RISK of sounding like a clich , books truly are the most versatile and economical means of traveling transporting us from real to imaginary worlds, and even piercing the veil of time Into the Dim, by Janet B Taylor, takes reader to 12th century London in the time of Eleanor of Aquitaine I m not too sure on the historical accuracy of this book, though, I thought Ms Taylor richly detailed the beauty and darkness of this period I found myself saliv [...]
