Miranda has Shakespeare in her blood: she hopes one day to become a Shakespearean actor like her famous parents. At least, she does until her disastrous performance in her school’s staging of The Taming of the Shrew. Humiliated, Miranda skips the opening-night party. All she wants to do is hide.

Fellow cast member, Stephen Langford, has other plans for Miranda. When he steps out of the backstage shadows and asks if she’d like to meet Shakespeare, Miranda thinks he’s a total nutcase. But before she can object, Stephen whisks her back to 16th century England—the world Stephen’s really from. He wants Miranda to use her acting talents and modern-day charms on the young Will Shakespeare. Without her help, Stephen claims, the world will lose its greatest playwright.

Miranda isn’t convinced she’s the girl for the job. Why would Shakespeare care about her? And just who is this infuriating time traveler, Stephen Langford? Reluctantly, she agrees to help, knowing that it’s her only chance of getting back to the present and her “real” life. What Miranda doesn’t bargain for is finding true love… with no acting required.-Goodreads


My Thoughts
This book sounds really interesting!! I am really into the whole time travel idea (especially after reading Tempest!!) so I definitely want to see what happens with that in this novel. Also, I am a huge fan of Shakespeare so I love reading anything that has to do with him! Side note: isn't the cover gorgeous??

Well what do you think of my choice?? What are you waiting for this week?? Comment below!! 
P.S. Be on the lookout for a 400 follower giveaway soon :)
