    1. This review has been posted on Happy Indulgence. Check it out for more reviews!Love in Revolution is a wartorn story about two young girls who fall in love during a revolution. One girl, Esteya, is protected by her brother's status in the Revolutionary Communist party, and the other girl, Skizi, is a shunned peasant in a minority called the Zikindi. I couldn't believe how accurately the title captured the story, as Esteya discovers love, betrayal, and fear during a revolution.I found the opening [...]

    2. Love in Revolution is an ambitious title which attempts to tackle several big issues- namely race, political beliefs/war, sexuality- and unfortunately falls short of my expectations. This novel could have been incredible, but lack of world building, very little character development and terrible pace meant that the book was sadly only an average one overall.Maybe it was just me, but I found it kind of hard to distinguish whether this is a historical novel set in Russia or something or whether it [...]

    3. Many YA books concentrate on first love by our leading lady – usually with a few obstacles thrown in such as the guy of their choice is a ‘bad boy’ from the wrong side of tracks (or occasionally a vampire or werewolf). Love In Revolution follows the same type of route only Esteya, our heroine falls for Skizi, a gypsy girl. What I loved most about this story is that while Esteya has fallen for a girl, the issue dividing them is mostly the class difference between them rather than any gender [...]

    4. Early 20th-century in what I think is a Ruritanian country undergoing a revolution -- at first I thought it was the Spanish Civil War, but details don't match. Esteya, a schoolgirl in a repressive monarchy, falls in love with Skizi, a Zikindi (faux-gypsy) girl; sheltered initially by bourgeois antecedents and later by her brother's post-revolution position in the Communist Party, Esteya is slow to see the danger she and the people around her are in.This shares many of the themes and tropes of Co [...]

    5. Esteya is fifteen when her world begins to change. A revolution is on the brink of her country, her brother a prominent figure in the Revolutionary Communist Party and able to shelter her family. And it is one hot afternoon when watching a legendary pello player get thrashed by a young boy that she meets Skizi, an outcast girl who catches her eye.Before long, Esteya is making excuses to slip away and find Skizi and the two girls find themselves falling in love. But with war rumbling closer no on [...]

    6. I didn't really click with this book. I spent too long trying to work out which country/historical period it was set in, but as far as I can tell the setting was completely made up. Which is fine, but if you're going to do that don't mention America, England, World War I, etc. like you're trying to place your novel in context. Because it doesn't work.I also thought the characters were bland and unlikeable, and I couldn't get behind the romance between the two main girls, which is a shame, becaus [...]

    7. I saw this book and I had to read it on the grounds that it includes both gay people and communists.This book is pretty decent overall, one book I've seen that includes both race and sexuality issues. The heroine's love interest is Zikindi, I'm not quite sure what that is but it seems similar to the Romani in Europe.One scene did make me laugh though:There's one bit where the father is like "my Communist son, what did I do to deserve this?!" and I'm like "dude maybe you shouldn't have called him [...]

    8. My enjoyment of the novel increased as the story went on, but I felt that too much was left until the end. The plot moved at a leisurely pace for the first two thirds, making me slightly impatient, and the remaining third was crammed too full. I wasn't entirely convinced with the chemistry between Skizi and Esteya, but I thought the relationship between Esteya and Martin was better written.

    9. I love reading stories where love and history is mixed. I liked the plot even if I was not sure about the feelings of the gipsy girls towards the main character.I really enjoy it and that is what i was looking for.
