Remembrance by Michelle Madow Review
Remembrance - Michelle Madow

Goodreads Synopsis: 

 

Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from 1815, England ... but she doesn't realize it until she meets her soul mate from the past and he triggers her memories to gradually return.

When Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie's high school, she feels a connection to him, like she knows him. But he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching Drew is more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has 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 get him out of her mind?

Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, but fighting fate isn’t easy, and she’s determined to unravel the mysteries of the past.

 

 

Review:

 

After hearing that this story was inspired by Taylor Swift's song 'Love Story' I had to read it. However, I was quite disappointed.

 

I'm a sucker for a bit of soppy romance in a story but this was overly cheesy for me. Lizzie's character was annoying as she would admit to Drew that she wanted to be with him but would then turn around and say she needed to think about it, mixed signals much? I think by the end of the book every character besides Keelie either turned out to be an awful person or annoyed me in some way. The fact that when Chelsea found out about Lizzie and Drew instead of just asking her friend about it she decided to catch them out instead, that is not something a best friend does. There was also Lizzie's relationship with Jeremy which was extremely frustrating as Jeremy could be so mean towards Lizzie but if Drew hadn't shown up she would have still stayed with him regardless. 

 

Then there was Drew and Lizzie's relationship....I just couldn't get into it which I think was due to the fact that they were already supposed to have had this relationship back in 1815 so already knew everything about each other. I think this inhibited my opportunity to get to know them which is why I couldn't connect with them.

 

Considering Michelle Madow wrote this as a junior in college it was a great debut novel but I don't think I'm going to continue with this series as it just wasn't for me.

The Taylor Swift Book Tag

 

 

This is the Taylor Swift book tag where you take songs by her and pick a book. The tag was originally created by TheBookLife. When I saw this tag I had to do it because for one I love books and two Its about Taylor Swift and I love her I really don't care what anyone thinks. I think she is awesome.


1. We are never getting back together - pick a book or series you were pretty sure you were in love with but then wanted to break up with

 

Twilight: This book was around the time when I just started getting more into reading and I use to be so in love with this book but I want to break up with it. Before the movies come out I really enjoyed this book it was just such a fun read and I loved the forbidden romance. My two favorite books from this series was Twilight and New Moon the other two were ok. After all the hype, the movies, and the crazy fans I was just over it.

 


2. Red - pick a book with a red cover


Ruby Red: This is the book I'm reading right now and it is the perfect book cover for a red cover. Just look how pretty the cover is. So far I am really enjoying this book and can't wait to read the other two books.

 

3. The best day - pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic


Harry Potter: I could not put these books down and read them all at once. At first when I heard of this series I did not think I would like it but then I watched the movies. I wanted to know what was going to happen next so I picket up the books and it was love. These books made me so happy and I wish it could go on forever.

 

4. Love Story - pick a book with a forbidden love


Luxe: I have not finish these books yet but I have read the first one and love the love story with Diana Holland and Henry Schoonmaker. Henry has arranged marriage with Diana older sister Elizabeth In which nether one want to married the other. Henry and Diana sneak around. I absolutely love them together and hope they end together in the end.

 

5. I knew you were trouble - pick a book with a bad character you couldn't help but love


The Sookie Stackhouse Novels Eric: My favorite bad boy would have to be Eric you can tell he is trouble by just looking at him but you just can't help it you still want him and you know he is nothing but bad news.

 

 

 

6. Innocent - pick a book that someone ruined the ending of


There has not really been any books I read that have been spoiled for me but there has been a few books that are movies where someone spoiled a few details.


7. Everything has changed - pick a book that has a character who goes through extensive character development


White Oleander Astrid: It has been a long time from when I have read this book. I would say Astrid change a lot in this book. She started out 12 living with her mother. she thinks her mom is the greatest person and admires her. Her mom ends up prison leaving Astrid going to different foster homes. Astrid grows and changes with each foster home and realizes her mother is not so great. I feel like from all the books I have read Astrid changes the most.

 

8. Forever and always - pick your favorite book couple


The Mortal Instruments Clary and Jace: I just finished this series and I just love the story with Clary and Jace. It was fun to read about them their ups and downs and how everything worked out for them. My favorite part is when they first officially met. Jace was wondering why she could see him when no one else could so he finds her at the coffee shop while she freaks out because she has no idea whats going on.

 

 

 

9. You belong with me - most anticipated book release

 

Winter book 4 of the lunar Chronicles. I wish I didn't have to wait a year for it to come out.

 

10. Come back, be here - pick a book you wouldn't lend out to anyone for fear of missing it too much


I don't really like people borrowing my books to begin with unless I really trust them. A book I would not want people to borrow at all is the ruby red books these cover are so pretty I would not want anything to happen to them.

 

11. Tear drops on my guitar - pick a book that made you cry a lot


If I Stay: Right from the first chapter you will cry. There are many sad moments and also happy moments.


12. Shake it off - Pick a book that you love so much you just shake off the haters

 

Battle Royale: This book is one of my favorite books I enjoyed reading it but there are many haters. There are a few similarities between Battle Royale and The Hunger Games so there has been this big debate. A lot of the people will compare the movie Battle Royale and the book The Hunger Game in which you cannot do. They took so much and changed few things when they made the movie. People will say that it does not have any background story and we do not know anything of the government but that is just not true you are not suppose to know that much about the government you are only suppose to know how much the kids know. Also there is a lot of background story of every kid there so when they dies you feel something for them unlike The Hunger Games. But I just need to shake it off.

 

This was a fun tag to do and I tag anyone who read this. Even if you don't like Taylor Swift you should still do it because it is still fun. In the future I would like to do other book tags after I have read more books.

The Taylor Swift Book Tag

TAYLOR SWIFT BOOK TAG

 

This is like the PERFECT tag!! I absolutely LOOOOOVE Taylor Swift!! So I had to do this. I saw this tag on youtube from Katytastic (and she adds on two more questions that I'll be answering too!! The original creator is theBookLife :) Totally listening to Taylor Swift while answering the questions... :) 

 

QUESTIONS:


1. "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together"

♪ Pick a book or series that you were pretty sure you were in love with, but then wanted to break up with ♪

 

 

One Day by David Nichols - I still love this book and story but WHYYYY did he have to do that to me?!?! I actually got pissed when I read this and probably threw it across the room (or really thought about it) Sigh. If you read the book or saw the movie you know what I'm talking about. It just came out of nowhere and was so uncalled for!


2. "Red"

♪ Pick a book with a RED cover ♪

 

Number the Stars by Lois Lowry - probably my favorite red book!!


3. "The Best Day"

♪ Pick a book that makes you feel nostalgic ♪

 

 

 Maniac Magee by Jerry Spinelli - My teacher in 5th grade read this to our class and he was the best reader giving the characters voices and all! We loved when he read to us :) I need to reread this one!


4. "Love Story" 

♪ Pick a book with forbidden love ♪

 

11235712

 

I love forbidden love :) My choice is Prince Kai and Cinder from the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer because of who both of them are, they shouldn't be together but they are perfect :)


5. "I Knew You Were Trouble" 

♪ Pick a book with a bad character you couldn’t help but love ♪

 

 

I thought of my favorite "bad boy" Damon Salvatore from the Vampire Diaries :)


6. "Innocent" (written b/c of Kanye West!)

♪ Pick a book that someone ruined the ending for ♪

 

 

I'm pretty good at staying away from Spoilers but the closest I can come up with is Winger by Andrew Smith. No one said what happens... but when people describe how they felt about the book, you kind of end up looking for it and expecting a certain something to happen so when it happens the impact is not as big as it could have been if you didn't know anything if that makes sense!


7. "Everything Has Changed" 

♪ Pick a character from a book who goes through extensive character development ♪

 

 

Emily from Since You've Been Gone by Morgan Matson has such great character development - I'm actually proud of her :)

 


8. "You Belong With Me"

♪ Pick your most anticipated book release ♪

 

 

Winter is my most anticipated release - the conclusion to the Lunar Chronicles by Marissa Meyer. But one that is coming really soon is Heir of Fire by Sarah J. Maas the third in the Throne of Glass series out September 2 - so soon! YAY!


9. "Forever and Always"

♪ Pick your favorite book couple ♪

 

 

Landon & Jamie from A Walk to Remember by Nicholas Sparks <3


10. "Come Back, Be Here"

♪ Pick the book you would least like to lend out, for fear of missing it too much ♪

 

 

All of my Nicholas Sparks books, even though I want more people to read him, I refuse to lend them out!!

BONUS QUESTIONS:


11. "Teardrops On My Guitar"

♪ Pick a book that made you cry a lot ♪

 

 

Lots of books but I'll go with Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas by James Patterson because that's the first book that came to mind. It's one of my favorites that made me cry A LOT!!!


12. "Shake It Off"

♪ Pick a book that you love so much, you just shake off the haters ♪

 

 

Basically all of Nicholas Sparks books :) He is my favorite author and I know there are haters out there who don't like him - think he's cliche tired of his stories blah blah blah!! I'm not hearing any of it - I love him, always will :D He's books are like home to me whenever I read them. I will always be his biggest fan! *shaking off the haters*

 

♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫♪

 

Do you love Taylor Swift too?? Have you been nonstop listening to her new single, "Shake it Off" Because I have been!! Have you read any of these books? And how would you answer any of these? Feel free to do this tag as well :)
