  1. Hmm I’m not very good at periods of time, history is a week point. I’ll say the prehistoric time. Only on the condition I’ll be safe though lol

  2. I have made a study of Victorian England and Victorian literature. It was my focus in college and the period has always held a deep fascination with me. I love the writing style of the period, the clothing, the risquรฉ and yet highly censored lifestyle. The prostitutes, the artists, the absinthe and the rich and poor; everything about Victorian England is worth a study. Not to mention the longest ruling monarch, Queen Victoria herself!

  3. It’s a toss up between the Roaring Twenties and the Age of Enlightenment. Either one would be unforgettable!


  4. Colonial era America – what a cheerleader for the Revolution I’d be since I’d know how it turns out! Move over, Betsy Ross!

  5. There is so many times/places I’d like to visit (but I’m no time lord) Victorian England would definitely be in my top 3, along with Renaissance-era Italy, and Ireland before the Romans.

  6. I have always been a fan of the Romanticism literary movement, so I would choose the late 1700s, early 1800s to live. Jane Austen especially, but I would love to see the world as Wordsworth, Burns, Lord Byron, and Keats. That would be a marvelous treat.

  7. If I could visit any period in History, I think I would choose the Restoration ni England. Great thinkers, great drama, blooming into a beautiful period of history.

  8. I would like to be in Philadelphia in 1776. I think it must have been an exciting time, with more than a little danger and uncertainty about the future. After hearing what everyone has to say these days about what the founders of the USA ‘intended,’ it would be neat and I bet very surprising to know what really happened.

  9. I’d love to go back and visit Victorian London, Ancient Egypt, and a part of me is curious about the Romanov’s, so I’d probably visit to just before their fall.

  10. I definitely am glad I live it this time period, with medical wonders and women’s rights and such. To visit though, it would be the sixteen hundreds. You have Galileo, de Vinci, Newton, oh yeah, and Shakespeare. The art was exquisite, the world’s idea of itself was climbing over old boundaries. The Renaissance man. I love the idea where we should be an expert in as much as possible, in everything- why are we not picking this back up when we have Google at our finger tips, right? Specializing in one thing is holding us back, contributing to loss of jobs to health. And, women were depicted soft and curvy, about size 10. It is so much work to be a 6, let alone 2 or something!

  11. I would like to visit the Regency time period in either England or France, because men were still (mostly) gentlemen, and foreign travel was becoming more pppular, if still not easy.

  12. After a recent visit to Italy, I have to say that I would like to visit the time of the Roman Empire at it’s peak.

  13. Sounds like a great story! Makes me think that The Doctor’s gonna pop up in the middle of the book somewhere, sounds right up his alley. Would love to add this book to my daughter’s shelf, a strong female lead is always a good thing for young girls!

  14. Historical period? >shudder< Just about any time in history means disease and a lack of flush toilets.

    Maybe Hawaii before Cook arrived would be fun, though…

  15. I’d love to visit so many different time periods! Victorian England or America, the Pioneer Days of the Old West, the early part of the 1900s through about 1930, and, well, 1975-1980, so I could get to know my mother, who passed away when I was a preschooler.

  16. Well, as long as I wouldn’t have to deal with things like ancient maladies and time paradoxes, I think I think I’d want to have the most fantastic camping trip ever… Go all the way back in time to when humans were tribal and cities weren’t even an idea yet.

    I like my modern conveniences and how awake and alive urban areas can be, but untouched wilderness has an undeniable beauty.

  17. I would visit america in the 1800’s it’s a time period where I wouldn have to fear being burned at the stake.

  18. I would LOVE to go back to the ancient Greek times with the Greek games. I think that would be super fun.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  19. I’d like to go everywhere and see everything, but if I could only go back in time once…I’d probably go back and buy stock in microsoft and macintosh before they made it big.

  20. I’d want to see my hometown, Los Angeles, back when the only people here were the Tongva Indians. . . mostly so I could see what the environment looked like before all the imported water and plants!

  21. I would love to visit the ancient Highlands of Scotland. I’d love to see the authenic dress (kilts, especially), hear about the clans , thaste the foods and rub elbows with the lairds and their ladies. Of course, I would want to go back in time only if I could bring along a modern bathroom and modern medicene!

  22. I think it would be cool to travel to the early 1900’s or maybe the 1920’s, to see something old fashioined. As much as I love history I wouldn’t want to got too far back because disease and all the other unpleasant things. Thanks for the giveaway!

  23. I’d love to visit the French Revolution period. As scary as it is. One of my favorites.

  24. I’d love to visit London during the reign of the Tudors but only if I could bring some sort of magic washer and dryer and toilet (horribly hygiene!) and could stay far, far away from Henry VIII when he was in a bad mood. ๐Ÿ™‚

  25. I would love to visit the middle ages, simply for the beauty and romance of the time, as well as the dirty, gritty side that the less-fortunate people were forced to live in. It was a time of change, a time of new thoughts and ideas, mixed and muddled in with the backward thinking of years past. It was truly a time of magic.

  26. I would like to visit Victorian London!! of course!! and Medieval times! =D

    (Im posting this again because my first message wasnt published. If it shows up later, please disregard this one)

  27. 100% Victorian London. The accents, the wardrobe that cobblestones! (we’ll just ignore the stink and disease and other unsavory things) This is my favorite time period to read about hands down.

  28. Victorian London would be awesome. I’m pretty sure I could only do it long enough for a party or something, though. The dresses and scenery would be awesome, but I’m a big fan of my technology ๐Ÿ˜›

  29. Victorian London would be wonderful, but so would Edwardian London or the mid 1800’s in the US with the West opening up…too many choices, too many interesting times!

  30. The Renaissance for sure! I would love being in such a rich time period with so many world-changing events and history happening right before my eyes…

  31. Yeah I would have to go with 1500’s in England. It would be amazing to be surrounded by all the old ships and trading good.

  32. I want to visit the U.S. In the 1920’s. For all the old cars soda pop shops & most importantly the style of clothes.

  33. I’d love to visit medieval England or Scotland, ancient Rome, and Regency and Victorian London. They’re all so interesting and there’s still so many other time periods I’d love to visit.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  34. I would have loved to have lived in the 1920’s. It isn’t called the roaring 20’s for nothing, with flappers and speakeasy’s and the mob. But I’d also love to visit the Renaissance, if only to see the very first performance of a Shakespeare play.

    Thanks for the great giveaway!!

  35. After reading some historical romance novels…I think I would like to go back and experience the medieval times…I want my own highlander ! ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. I’d love to go back to the Renaissance and tell Leonardo DaVinci and Galileo all about the advancements in science in technology- and how they contributed. I’d like them to know that both science and art are respected and celebrated, and that they are still beloved and admired for their ideas and contributions to both.

  37. So many places to choose from…but I think I would still pick Victorian London in time to see the Great Exhibition. (But stay away from White Chapel no matter when I went.) The book looks like a lot of fun.

  38. I definitely would want to go to Ancient Egypt. So much amazing history that we haven’t even discovered yet!

  39. Sounds like an interesting book! As for a time period I would like to visit (as long as its only a visit), I think I would like to visit the Renaissance or Late BC/Early AD Rome.

  40. I think I would like to visit the renaissance era. The world was a good place we made strides in medicine, science, the arts and all sorts of other areas.

  41. Wow what a tough question, there’s victorian/industrial, where steampunk was born and everything was bursting new, and sci fi exploded. there’s prehistory with Conan and the Death Dealer and countless other sword swinging heroes

  42. Thanks for a great giveaway! I don’t know if I’d like to go too far back in time… I’m an asian woman and I don’t think I’d be received very well… lol… But if I could go incognito, I’d love to visit the early Roman era.

  43. If I could visit any time period in history it would have to be Arthurian England. Chivalry is not dead, it has just evolved into something unfamiliar.

  44. I would like to visit the mid 1700’s, to see the formation and birth of our nation. I would love to visit 1776 in particular.
    I would also love to visit the era of the Roman Empire, to see it in person, to see Rome take over the known world.
    I hope I win!!!

  45. I’d love to visit the Victorian times– or 1890s in Japan! Things began changing with the railroads. . . Oh man, anywhere in from 1905-1925 in America, too– ohhhhhh my, the fashions!! Got myself in a tizzy just thinking about it. . .

  46. I think the list of where I would NOT want to visit would be shorter. But since you asked where I would like visit: ancient Egypt, Ireland when there were druids, Byzantine era in the Middle East, Renaissance Italy, Victorian and Edwardian England, the colonial American period, the 20s in America, and the future. ๐Ÿ˜€

  47. The book sounds really interesting. I’d love to visit either the 1920’s, love the style and class that I’ve seen in programmes about the time, the 1960’s, just for the chance to see some of the greatest rock bands in history at the begining of their careers, or at somepoint near the begining of the Edwardian period, mainly for the writing.

  48. I’d like to visit either Elizabethan England or the plains Indians right before Little Bighorn

  49. I would love to visit Native Americans during the 1400’s, or at any point before colonization really.

  50. I’m a HUGE fan of the Victorian era! Honestly, my only reason is the fashion. When I was little, it was Medeival England because I was obsessed with being a princess with a cone shaped hat and flowing veil.

  51. in the B.C. during the times after the Trojan War. First of all, could discover what Greek and Roman mythology there was and whether it was in reality “mythology”. Second, I’d get to wear a TOGA. Third, I could research for my story about Orpheus and Eurydice!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  52. I would love to visit Ancient Egypt. Their culture is so rich and I can’t even imagine having the chance to experience it first hand. Thank you so much for the awesome giveaway! edysicecreamlover18@gmailDOTcom

  53. I want to visit swinging sixties. I want to see Beatlemania first hand, including their live performance on Ed Sulivian.

  54. Hmm…. Either Victorian London (learn proper etiquette) or go to the 1940s and meet Walt Disney. Ask him if he’s looking for any interns, or be brazen enough to ask for a full-time job in working on studio concept art, storyboard, or character design. Animation jobs were not as glamorous or as high in demand as they are now (and I like working with traditional art better). Beside I would be keen to use some fun retro slang (it’s the cat’s meow).

  55. England at most any time, but the Victorian or Edwardian period would be most interesting as long as I had money. I don’t think I’d care much for being one of the poor maids or livery boys.

  56. There are so many eras I would love to visit, just so that I could play dress up in all the clothes of each time!! I think I would definitely love to spend a day in the 20s—flapper dresses, speakeasies, and amazing music.

  57. If it was up to me I’d visit a steampunk alternative wild west! Though I do love the 1920’s as Marg mentioned, and would love to be a flapper for a day:)

  58. I would choose the Victorian Era. My grandmother owned a 3 story Victorian Home in NJ. I always wanted to visit to explore the home to see if there were any secret passages, hidden letters, etc. Would have loved to see the dances in the formal living room, and the books that were read in the library with the pocket doors. I wish I was able to buy the home. ๐Ÿ™

  59. The 1950s to see what the world was like when my parents were growing up, and shed some light on what makes them the way they are today. Who wouldn’t want to get a chance to wear a poodle skirt?!? ๐Ÿ™‚

    OR the Victorian Era. I had a very inspiring English teacher when I was in middle school who taught us lots about the Victorian Era. I’d love to go experience the differences in manners, the clothes, and between the classes.

  60. I’d love to be back in the medieval times, with the Knights. I have always loved reading about that time period, be it Mists of Avalon, or The Inheritance Trilogy. Lord of the Rings is fake, yes I know, but I would definitely love to be in a time period like that, with magical powers and heroes fighting off hordes of monstrous creatures.

  61. We love stories about 14-16th century Scottish Highlands. Fairy tales, magic & romance are all possible there.

  62. Shoot I am a day day late:( But I will answer anyway:) I would love to visit the 20’s, from the books and movies I have seen and read make it very interesting time period to me. The flappers, the road houses, the nuveau riche and all.
