Review: The Time Traveler's Guide to Modern Romance by Madeline J. Reynolds

The Time Traveler's Guide to Modern Romance

Synopsis

Elias Caldwell needs more than his life in nineteenth-century England has to offer. He'd rather go on an adventure than spend one more minute at some stuffy party. When his grandfather gives him a pocket watch he claims can transport him to any place and time, Elias doesn't believe it...until he's whisked away to twenty-first-century America.

Tyler Forrester just wants to fall hopelessly in love. But making that kind of connection with someone has been more of a dream than reality. Then a boy appears out of thin air, a boy from the past. As he helps Elias navigate a strange new world for him, introducing him to the wonders of espresso, binge-watching, and rock and roll, Tyler discovers Elias is exactly who he was missing.

But their love has time limit. Elias's disappearance from the past has had devastating side effects, and now he must choose where he truly belongs—in the Victorian era, or with the boy who took him on an adventure he never dreamed possible?

Review

I just love time travel books and this is no exception. It's such an amazing story about two boys who are from different worlds and yet somehow find themselves on an adventure together.

Elias is from nineteen-century, he is not happy with his life there and when given an opportunity he chooses to travel in time to the modern era. So, you can imagine how it is going to be for him, learning new things, meeting new people, and having the time of his life. Unfortunately, time travel has its consequences and he will need to deal with those too.

Tyler falls in love with him as soon as he saw him. He is Elias guide in the modern world and spending time together just brings two boys closer. They are a cute and quite romantic couple. I enjoyed reading their story and I think anyone who likes time-travel or YA/LGBT will definitely like this novel.
P.S. I received a complimentary copy of this book via NetGalley.
