♥ Glitterature: Step Back In Time By Ali McNamara ♥

So first things first , I absolutely loved this book it was one of those books you really can't put down ( And that my lovely little book worms is a sign of a great book). When I first started reading this book I didn't know it was by Ali McNamara , I mean obviously it says it on the cover but I didn't know she wrote a book a couple years ago that I loved ( from Notting Hill With Love Actually ) , so once I found out she wrote that I knew that I would proberly like this book too. 

Blurb: " How far would you travel to find the love of a lifetime , when single career girl Jo-Jo steps onto a zebra crossing and get's hit by a car. 
She awakes to find herself in 1963 , the fashion , the music , her job , even her romantic life. Everything is different and then it happens three more times and Jo-Jo finds herself living a completely new life in the 1970's , 80's and 90's.
The only people she can rely on are Harry and Ellie , two companions from 2013 and George , the owner of a second hand record shop , is she's ever to return from her travels Jo-Jo must work out why she's jumping through time like this and if she does make it back will her life ever be the same again".  

What I Liked About It: I liked that it was so easy to read in the sense that you can get into the book pretty fast and sucked into the story , I hardly put this book down. It's a really fun girly book the kind of book that after a long day you just curl up and get lost in the story , basically it's time travel for women ( btw I'm totally not sexiest).

The story itself is really great like why is she jumping through time and will she ever get back , it's kind of a story within a story as she faces dilemmas and people in the same boat as her in each era and also every time she goes to the next era she always brings something back from the previous era. And there is a strong Beatles element in this book too from song lyrics to people so see if you can pick up on that if you read it. 

The Chapters are quite short which I like as you feel your getting through the book quicker than you would if they was longer.   

What I didn't Like: Not much really the only thing I would say is that the ending you can kind of see coming (and sometimes I like to be surprised) , but that doesn't take anything away from the book and it is still a great read. 

So in all it's a cute , light hearted , fun , girly book (Like most of her books which I love). So definitely check out this book if you haven't already and I'll give it a 9/10. So thank you for reading and I will see you in my next post
Byeeee xx
