Within the first few lines I loved Cat. I thought she was funny, smart and had just the right amount of snarkiness (don't think that's a proper word but I'm sticking with it) thrown in. I loved her attitude at the beginning but watching the subtle changes and her growth throughout the book made me love her even more.

A lot of the quotes throughout the book made me giggle but one in particular really amused me. 'I stare at the door waiting for Miley Cyrus to come barreling in, singing tunelessly about our pasts being the key to our futures.' I have nothing against Miley Cyrus, but that just cracked me up.

I really liked Cat's first meeting with Lorenzo, mainly because Lorenzo is a total babe and any scene with him is good! I love that upon meeting Lorenzo, Cat immediately decides he's a 16th century player and resolves not to let his charms affect her. Well that lasts all of 30 seconds, and I cannot blame Cat, my resolve would've weakened about 30 seconds earlier than that!

I really liked all the characters in this book, even the not-so-nice ones. They were all well thought out and even those characters I only met briefly were brilliantly written, I got a good feel of who they were, even from a few short lines. I loved all the characters and was totally swooning over Lorenzo, but I had a real soft spot for Alessandra. She was soft and demure but I thought she had spunk! Plus her name is absolutely gorgeous and she's a real sweetheart. I cannot wait for Rachel's next book if not for the brilliant writing then just to meet Alessandra again.

I thought this book was amazing. The cover was gorgeous and Rachel weaved a mystical tale full of mystery and wonder; it also taught me some really cool things about Italy and it's art. My Super Sweet Sixteenth Century took me on a magical journey through renaissance Italy, told a brilliant tale of love and left me begging for more.
Good Points
The characters were amazing! I especially loved Alessandra but they were all written beautifully!
