Review: “Remembrance” by Michelle Madow

Title: Remembrance

Author: Michelle Madow

Rating: ★★★★☆

Synopsis: (via: Goodread)

New Hampshire high school junior Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England … but she doesn’t know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can’t stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can’t she seem to get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, the pair of them soon find that fighting fate isn’t going to be easy.

My Review:

I have been wanting to read this book for a while, because i have seen it in MANY book blogs. So then, i tweeted Michelle Madow (who is the author of this book) that i couldnt wait to get my hands on it, and she was SO sweet to actually give me the e-book. I swear she is such a cute person!

Okay so back to the book. When i started it, i thought it was a normal chick flick book. I didnt really understand the strong connection between Drew and Lizzie at first, but after reading more about it, i finally understood. Now i really liked Lizzie. She was a strong protagonist who usually dealt with her problems on her own. Now Drew, drew is hot. Well thats how i imagined him. Well Drew striked me as a weird character at first. Like he would talk to Lizzie, then suddenly ignore her. Which pissed me off ALOT. But i love him now! ahahaha!

I loved the conflict between Chelsea/Jeremy and Lizzie. It was a mix of a long and old friendship with love. I truly felt that those three would always love each other. Even though (don’t wanna spoil) something happened between Lizzie and Jeremy. I have a feeling that Jeremy would still continue to be her friend. Even though its not mentioned in the book.

Now what i REALLY envy is the STRONG love and connection between Drew and Lizzie. After i found out that they were reincarnated from their past life, everything fit right into place. I understood why Drew acted that way, and why they had this “strong connection” that even THEY didnt understand. I loved how they loved each other very much. It was very cute and honest.

I totally recommend this book. It was fun, amazing, and definitely a book i didnt put down. I tried to read as much as i can with all the school work i had, therefore i ended up finishing it in 3 days! SO you better go ahead and read it if you still didnt!

My Review:

Im just…. speechless. This book, gave me goosebumps all the way. The feelings i had while reading this book, were sadness, happiness, joy, love, it was just EVERYTHING. This book touched me to the bottom of my heart. I honestly never expected it to be this good. It was beautiful. I loved the way it was written, how one chapter were flashbacks, and how the other chapter was in the present. That way, the author allowed us to know the past and present of the characters, which made me connect with them even more.

This book taught me a lot, especially to appreciate every second i live. The reason i loved this book, was because it made me feel, that maybe this is what you might approach some day in your life. To choose a decision, that might be as important as life and death. When that time comes, we have to be strong right? Thats exactly what this book showed me.

While reading this book, i cried alot. It hurt me, like a whole in my heart. But that doesn’t mean i wouldn’t read it again. Like, i dont really care i cried, because i enjoyed it you know?

If you didnt read this book, and if you like books that make you cry and arent all happy happy, you should totally give it a shot and read it. There is also a sequel to it called “Where She Went”. Below is the cover of the sequel!

Happy Reading! ❤

My Review:

This is a really… amazing book. It was one of those books that when i started, i just couldn’t put it down. After reading the synopsis, i wasnt that eager about starting it. My sister read it, and yea she told me to read it because it was nice. One day i was bored, i decided to start it. What i like about the author of this book, Lauren Barnholdt, is that she catches the reader’s attention from the start. The reason why i just couldnt put this book down was because at the beginning of the book, she added some suspense to it, so that really made me eager to continue reading. I also wanted to figure out what that “big” thing Eliza did that has been going around the school, and what that purple notebook was, and what had the secret society planned on doing with it. The idea of the book, and that purple notebook that Eliza carry’s, is unbelievably amazing. I really loved the idea, and i really thought it was beyond funny and creative. There was also some romance in it, which i like. It was regarding her ex-boyfriend Cooper who ployed her into becoming his girl-friend to get into a secret society in the school. I dont want to say more since i dont want this to be some kind of spoiler. Anyways, to sum this all up, i enjoyed it to the max. It was funny, cute, and fun to read. I really recommend this book because you will surely enjoy it.
