      DNF. This has to go down as one of the silliest, if not the silliest book ever written in the history of YA fiction. Our 17 year old heroine finds herself in midst of a medieval battle after traveling back in time and what does she do?? She falls crazy in LUST with the first guy she sets eyes on."I was in the middle of a real battle. Men were wounded or dying. I glanced left and saw that one wasn't battling any longer; instead he stared at me as if I were a female Lazarus. I wanted to look away [...]

      For those who like a visual ~ Marcello irresistiblereadsMy Favourite Quote: We froze. Neither of us moving, simply staring at each other if the other was going to move first. "You are," he whispered, "uncommonly stirring."He closed his eyes then, as if he had to in order to break the bond between us, then lifted me to the saddle and stare at the ground as he guided my feet into the stirrupsESOME! I am not usually a fan of anything that slightly resembles historical fiction and well this is time [...]

      Love this book!!!! This was the "Total Package" for me. There wasn't an ounce of anything missing! I'm a sucker for a good history/action/adventure/romance book, but this far exceeded my expectations! I couldn't put this one down, loved every bit of it!The story is about two sisters who travel to Italy every summer due to their mom and late father's love of archeology. The Betarrini sisters search a tomb in which they were not supposed to enter and find handprints on the wall. As they both place [...]

      The cover of this book drew me in first, and reading about the book thoroughly intrigued me. It sounded like a really neat, adventurous read. But I was slightly wrong in my assumptions. It wasn't just a neat read--it was an AWESOME read! It had everything a reader could want in a medieval adventure: battles, sword fights, balls, adventure, peril, humor, suspense, mystery, romanceeverything! To put it simply--I was completely wowed by this book. The River of Time series ranks right up there with [...]

      Rating: 2.5 StarsWaterfall is probably one of the most misguided books to have ever been marketed. The title Waterfall implies that there will be at least a mention of a waterfall throughout the book. Let me tell you now,there isn’t!The cover of this book is gorgeously deceptive and seems to portray a girl going through a gateway of some kind. I’ll spoil something for you again: there’s no gateway. The synopsis of Waterfall will tell you that this is an adventure novel about time-travel [...]

      Gabi and Lia Betarrini get to spend their summer vacation in beautful ItalyToo bad it's on a hot and dusty archeological site, among the rubble of the medieval castles in rural Tuscany. Bored beyond belief, the Betarrini sisters go exploring on the site into an acient tomb. Where Gabi finds handprints inside. So when Gabi and her sister lay their hands atop of the prints. Gabi finds herself in fourteenth-century Italy in the mist of a fierce battle of knights of two opposing forces. Oh! plus her [...]

      Many of my friends recommended this book to me but I still didn't read it. This book was on my want to read shelf for a long time. When I think of it now, it was on that shelf for too long. I finally decided to pick it up. Luckily I was in for a long car ride. To be exact a seven hour car ride. I couldn't put out down once I started it. Now I would say that this is one of my favorite books/series. I would recommend this to anyone! I loved every part of it. I honestly can't think of one part that [...]

      One thing I’ve learned from reading this series is that I am totally unprepared for time travel and that I'm a horrible parent because I have not prepared my children either. I don’t think I would last very long in the middle ages. Our heroine Gabi and her sister Lia are transported from our modern times to Medieval Italy. I liked how Gabi handles herself, her reactions seemed realistic. I liked that she always looked for the positive and stays optimistic in the face of so many trials. I als [...]

      I found some of the circumstances a liiiiiittle convenient (oh, you're sent back in time to medieval Italy? Good thing your pops taught you ancient Italian and sword fighting!) and would have liked a bit more of a culture shock (no plumbing! females with opinions!) but nevertheless thought this had likeable characters and an entertaining story. Think sweeping romantic adventure. Also: Italian boys. Always relevant to my interests.

      To paraphrase Abraham Lincoln: "For people who like this kind of thing, it's the kind of thing they'd like."This book was not completely awful. Though I did not like it, I understand why others might. Some of the more believable plot elements are interesting, I just couldn't get past the bad writing, awful romance, stick-figure characters, and overall poor quality. I'm not saying that no one should read it, I just wouldn't recommend it.Here are some of my biggest complaints:Many of the plot elem [...]

      So I was skeptical when someone told me I would like Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren. It just didn't seem to be my thing. I mean, the premise was good enough but honestly, it didn't seem to be something I would be interested in. However, since was offering a free copy, I decided to read it anyway. I mean, I should only make up my mind about its worthiness once I had sampled a few chapters for myself, right? So, no one was more surprised than I when I tore through the book and finished it in abou [...]

      If you are in the mood for some knight in shining armor meets YA then this is the series for you. Three words to describe itart, surprising, & sweet.Lisa Bergren participated in the YA scavenger hunt with me and I was so excited to get her book. Looking forward to picking up the next one! My favorite part is when the two sisters picked up weapons and started fighting alongside the men. Love to see a gutsy heroine!

    • Brodie says:

      You know those books that make you lose all sense of reality and you literally fall into the pages? And you feel such a huge disappointment when the story comes to an end because you don't want to resurface? Waterfall is exactly that. It is such a thoroughly engaging read! I loved everything about it - the 14th century setting, the characters, the plot, even the language. I caught myself slipping their dialect into my own thoughts so many times.Sisters, Gabriella and Lia Betarrini find themselve [...]

      The sixteen-year-old girl in me, loved LOVED LOVED this book!!! Once I closed my adult eyes and opened those of my youth - eyes of wonderment, softness, invincibility, and unlimited belief in all that might be possible, whether or not probable - I was totally hooked! Pure entertainment: excitement, adventure, suspense, romance, humor, heroics, and cleanly written. Plus, a bit of subtle (non-preachy) inspiration too:"Free choice . . . We all have freedom of choice. Over and over again, minute by [...]

      As a mother of two teens and two preteens, I found Waterfall to be a fun but clean foray into the young adult genre for Lisa T. Bergren, who handled it with a grace and style all her own. Gabriella Betarrini yanked me out of my time and into a harrowing adventure as she battled knights—and love! I heartily enjoyed Gabriella’s travel back into time,and I heartily look forward to Cascade, River of Time #2!

    • Rachel'sbookishworld says:

      I'm in love with this book!! Ah!

    • Olivia says:

      AKDNHFKTJTK, This book. THIS BOOK.So, first off, I am so so so glad I finally picked this book up! Omiword, it was so good! I loved the plot. It was so original and cool! The characters were awesome, Gabriella was a little annoying at some parts, but she was transported to a different time sooo's kind of understandable. aksrnjt, I need Cascade now, like, his minutenal verdict: clean (some kissing and a man was going to rape the main character(he doesn't))

    • Sheena says:

      Warning: very long review with spoilers. I do not understand how this book has such high reviews. People truly do have different tastes.This book is about two teens -17 yr. Gabi and 15 yr. old Lia - who spend their summer vacations hiking along excavation sites with their archaeologist parents. One day on a sudden bout of boredom, they decide to explore their mother's newly found archaeological tombsite. They end up time-travelling to an ancient life of medieval Italy where they are caught up in [...]

    • Kelvey says:

      This book was so much fun! This was my first experience with time-travel in the story, and I loved it. Bergren did a good job portraying what a teenage girl from the 21st century would feel like after being transported to the 13th century.Some of the characters felt one-dimensional to me. Especially the main love-interest, Marcello. All I could tell you about him were what kind of situations he was in, and not much about his character in the situations. And that he was very “Hollister model” [...]

      Read the review at iLive, iLaugh, iLove Books.Okay, I admit it. I don't like writing reviews. It's kind of like homework. I'm still in school, so having homework on top of homework kind of turns me away. However, it doesn't stop me from reading or blogging. That being said, I think this was the first time I've ever been excited to write a review. Why? Because I want to spread the word about how wonderful this book was, and tell all of you to read it. I was instantly hooked right after the first [...]

      Waterfall by Lisa Tawn Bergren Gabriella is bracing herself for a boring summer with her mom and sister in the secluded hills of Italy. But when her and her sister sneak into a tomb and place their hands on handprints on the tomb’s walls, they are transported to fourteenth century Italy. Right in the middle of a war between the two kingdoms! I was a little nervous to pick this up, because I heard it was a rather violent and more of a romance book. But I was quickly swept away with the book and [...]

      DNF at 20%I JUST CAN'T*facepalm*What I likeduumwait ok there's 1. This book was hilariousWhat I did not like1. This book was not supposed to be hilarious2. Insta-love3. Cheesy writing4. Annoying narrator5. Constant swooning over boysBut what I hate the most is that the IDEA of this story was a good one and this could have been a good book Alas "could have been" does not a good story makeI wanted to transport myself into this book . not because I was enchanted by the world within, but because I [...]

    • Small Review says:

      Can you say *SWOON*?I’m trying to hold back the OMG squeeeeeees here, but it’s kinda hard. You see in the description where it mentions Italian hotties? Notice how it’s plural? Oh wow is it plural! There are three guys in this book that I would risk plague and travel back in time for. Yet, delightfully, there isn’t any annoying love triangle. The main character loves her guy and sees the other two as good friends (which means I can have them then, right?)Ah, they’re physically attracti [...]

    • Sophia Sardothien says:

      Well umm I like this book but I didn't love it, through the entire 300+ pages nothing really happened xD there were some points that seemingly drag on forever. I like the protagonist but I really hate her sister. THAT SIS GOD I wanna throw a punch on her darn face. But overall it was an interesting read but not captivating.

    • Katie says:

      Upon re-read, still a favorite

    • Julie Carpenter says:

      Yeah, all those reviews I read about how much they absolutely loved this book (and series) were right! I LOVED IT!!!!! I couldn't put it down! Every available minute you better believe it that this book was in my hands with the pages being flipped quickly. Hee Hee!I bought the first three books over the summer for my teenagers because of all the good things said about this series. They were really excited and then we got home and they sat on the shelfd sat on the shelfd sat on the shelfI finally [...]

    • Erin says:

      Follow all my reviews at: flashlightcommentary.Fair warning folks, I’m in the minority on this one so try to keep an open mind. My feelings won’t be hurt if you disagree with me, but I’d hate to think of my word being gospel as most readers seem to really enjoy this series. Bergren’s prose is alright, but I personally found it rather immature and while I’m not part of the target age group for this novel, I can’t help feeling my sixth grade-self would have groaned over the verbiage in [...]

    • Galaxy Adventurer says:

      *happy sigh* I had forgotten how much I love this book <3Gabi and Marcello, and Lia and Luca (Lucaaaaaa ;) <3 ), and Fortino if you haven't read this series, why in the world not? it's fabulous <3So yes, I love this book and this series, and I shall continue re-reading this series, because if you didn't know, I LOVE THESE BOOKS SO MUCH!! *clears throat*so yeah, read them! ;)byeeeeeee <3

    • Marklessgirl says:

      I loved this book. The only reason I'm taking off a star is because some of the be pot twists and things I found predictable and this book grossed me out a little bit, I may change it to 5 stars later on because I am going back and forth on it.

    • Elaina says:

      This was a great start to the River of Time Series and I cannot wait to get my hands on the other one soon :)
