RIDDLE ME THIS...


Stumbled upon this book at the library the other day and decided to give it a whirl, primarily because it involves two of my very favorite things -- Paris, and time-travel! I'm only a third of the way through it, but loving it so far, and getting quite the history lesson regarding the French Revolution. I'm especially excited because it seems to be dealing with an issue I've been grappling with myself. I can't seem to wrap my head around why, no matter how many revolutions occur in how many countries, we always seem to end up right back we started -- like a crazy pendulum that follows the same arc, over and over and over. I'll let you know if I get any answers.

There's one thing I do know for sure. It's books like this that keep me coming back to YA fiction, over and over and over!

There is some really good YA fiction out there, often better than the adult version. Looks interesting. Good riddle. I suspect it has quite a bit to do with testosterone and power hunger. xox

Greed and the lust for power -- such a deadly duo!
