Christmas Present

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday While I've enjoyed all short stories up to this one, they were nice additions but in order to follow the story of the main series, they weren't necessary. Now however, with Christmas Present (another Christmas short story) I would say this is the case, as the events from this short story have... Continue Reading →

A Trail Through Time

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday A Trail Through Time starts off right where A Second Chance ended and basically this is the moment where the aforementioned second chance really comes into play. Leon and Max are on the run and hunted through time and space (though maybe just through time). As they jump up and down the... Continue Reading →

Roman Holiday

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Another short to accompany the main St Mary’s series. While it’s perfectly possibly to follow the series without reading the short stories, I would certainly recommend them as it provides you with some extra adventures and postpones the inevitable moment where you’ll have to return to the normal, non-time traveling world.Expect everything...

The Thief of Time

GoodReads ★★★★ This was my first John Boyne book after The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas, which is really well-known. His other books are far less popular, but I can't see why, as John Boyne turned out to be one of my favorite authors. One of the things I like best, besides the style and... Continue Reading →

A Second Chance

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday Returning to St Mary’s already feels like a long awaited return home, even as I’m bingereading my way through the series. I’ve seldom had so much fun just with the characters as they really are what make the series stand out. And normally, I’m really not much of a bingereader myself (don’t... Continue Reading →

The Muse of History

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday This short story from The Chronicles of St Mary's is one of the few good things to come out of the quarantine. You can read it for free at Jodi Taylor's blog (click here). It was very short but with all the humor and spirit that I really enjoy in the series.... Continue Reading →

When A Child Is Born

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday When A Child Is Born takes place on Christmas (though it is not that child that is born). Max and her team end up being sidetracked while they are hiking towards William I's coronation. It's short and sweet and it fits perfectly in the holiday season.While I enjoyed it thoroughly, all 20... Continue Reading →

The Very First Damned Thing

This short story in the St Mary's series focuses on the very beginning of the institute when Dr. Bairstow is trying to secure funding for the project and try to convince them of the usefulness of it all. While this all takes place, some series favorites also happen to show up at the same time...

A Symphony of Echoes

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday I'm not a serial reader. I'm quite the opposite, even when I like books, I'm usually glad I can dive into another world next. However, having finished the first book in the St. Mary's series, Just One Damned Thing After The Other, I couldn't resist and immediately started the second book (and... Continue Reading →

Just One Damned Thing After Another

GoodReads ★★★★ #TimeTravelTuesday I've been thinking about how to best convey the fun I had when reading Just One Damned Thing After Another. I'd heard so many good things beforehand that I wasn't sure it would live up to my expectations. But luckily for me, it did. (And there are seven of them! - at... Continue Reading →

The Steam Pump Jump

GoodReads ★★★★ If you're a fan of this series, it can by no means be a surprise there's these short stories every year to keep us fans happy until the next full length novel arrives. They usually are a lot of fun, as is this one, but I do recommend to read them only when... Continue Reading →

Christmas Past

GoodReads ★★★★ It has become something of a Christmas tradition, a short story from St Mary's, usually involving some bad advised time travel, uhm, investigation of historical events in contemporary time, of course.This one was very cute. It features Max and Matthew as they travel to 19th century London to bring a little bit of... Continue Reading →
