I enjoyed the narrator’s voice and really liked the different accents and voices she gave to each character. I am definitely a fan of this type of narration, as it helps get into each character separately. The pacing and tone was enjoyable and this was definitely a good commute to work listen.
The story unfolds as our main character Lizzie meets Drew and begins to get flashes of their past life together. Piece by piece she gets the information she needs to believe what is happening and begin to understand her situation. I liked the way the story unfolded, and how she didn’t remember it all right away but only got the glimpses as they mirrored the actions of present day.
What got a bit less enjoyable was the high school double love triangle drama. Lizzie already has a long-time boyfriend. Then she meets Drew, who starts dating her best friend. I’m so not into double love triangle drama so that kind of got a few eye rolls from me as it unfolded.
Now, I would love to see some illustrations of the drawings Lizzie made. I want to see the dress she wore to the Halloween dance, and the dress she remembers at the ball. I’m glad the book covers show the masks because I was so curious to see those as intricately and beautifully they were described.
This book ends well, but you know something bad must be lurking, so I’m curious to finish the rest. A good, overall enjoyable listen. And finally gets me some books on my #shelflove challenge.
She was happy. And she couldn't imagine her life being any different. That is until she laid eyes on Andrew Carmichael. In that briefest of moments, her world was turned upside down, and everything she thought she wanted paled in comparison to just how much she wanted him.
Seeing Drew brought back memories of a past that wasn't her own, of a time long ago and a place she had never before seen.
She didn't think she was going crazy. It must all be some kind of daydream. But if that were true, then why did Drew's mere presence make her feel like she had known him forever, make her skin tingle and make her heart race? And why did it seem like the same was true for him?
Remembrance is an enchanting story about love and second chances and trying to defy a tragic fate that seems doomed to repeat itself.
From the moment Liz sees Drew for the very first time, she knows that everything has changed. Seeing him is like coming home. And for an instant she thought he might have felt the same. But when he chooses instead to treat her as if she were nonexistent, and seems to only have eyes for her friend Chelsea, she is shattered.
Because for Liz everything is different. And all she wants is Drew. Even if he doesn't want her. Because seeing him reminds her of another time, another place, another her.
And when she suddenly knows things she couldn't possibly know and can do things she shouldn't be capable of doing, she suspects that Drew might have the answers she needs. But with her life on a collision course with destiny and with time running out, unless he's willing to reveal his secrets, their second chance just might be their last.
Author Michelle Madow has written a captivating story of a love that is strong enough to transcend time and break free from death's hold.
Her main character Liz is sweet and incredibly likable, and is a great contrast to her best friend Chelsea and her possessive and demanding boyfriend Jeremy.
Drew is that wonderful combination of sexy, mysterious, moody and at times cruel, with just enough of a protective, kind and lovable side to keep him from being too much of a bad boy.
The story moves quickly, possibly a bit too quickly at times, but will keep readers engaged with the characters and plot as secrets are revealed, giving readers brief glimpses into an idyllic past set in the time and place of Jane Austen.
Remembrance is a book that's so easy to get lost in and one that fans who believe in destiny, love stories and the idea that two people who are meant to be will transcend time to be together once more, will find simply magical.
On a personal note:
What a sweet and adorable story. I absolutely loved escaping into it this past week. It was such a quick and easy read.
I love stories about reincarnation and the preface was intriguing and sexy and I couldn't wait to catch up to its location in the story and discover what came next.
Drew was gorgeous, mysterious and absolutely frustrating at times, but when all is revealed his behavior makes sense.
And then there was Lizzie, who was incredibly sweet and nice - way too nice for her boyfriend Jeremy who was kind of a jerk and her friend Chelsea who seemed much too self-absorbed to be called a good friend.
I was slightly hesitant about reading this book after hearing it was inspired by a music video. Also it was a contemporary, but one that didn't appear to have that crushing or devastating moment I usually like to see. But I was charmed by the love story and intrigued by the reincarnation aspect so I wanted to give it a try. And I was completely ensnared.
I would have loved to learn a bit more about Drew and Lizzie's past lives and Lizzie's present life before Drew, which would have slowed the pace a bit and given me time to stay in those moments a little longer. But their absence didn't take away my smile or make the story any less delightful or heartwarming.
I won't reveal whether there is a happy ending for Liz, you'll just have to read it yourself. However, I will tell you that I spent the entire read wishing and hoping that things would end happily for Drew and Lizzie.
And of course I just have to mention that I loved that the author gave the characters in the past the same initials as their counterparts in the present - and not just the two main characters.
This was such an entertaining and utterly adorable book and I can't wait to read more by this author.
Lizzie is a normal teenage girl. She's not the most popular girl, or a total loser. She's not a genius, but she's definitely not dumb. She's pretty without being conceited or complaining about being plain. She's just Lizzie. Her relationship with her boyfriend, Jeremy, also felt very real. They're not exactly a happy couple, but anyone who's been in a long term relationship that's going down hill can definitely identify with them. Of course there's the dark, mysterious stranger, Drew. Someone so familiar to Lizzie, but she just can't seem to place her finger on it.
I breezed through this book! It was very light and sweet, and even though it wasn't fast paced, I didn't want to put it down. I was completely drawn in by the "we need to stay away from each other" type plot. We know they're suppose to be together, so it just added to the tension even if it is over-done in this genre. I just wanted to know what had happened in their past that makes Drew push Lizzie away at the beginning. While the ending is a happy one for the most part, I know there's more trouble brewing for Lizzie and Drew, and can't wait to find out how this love story ends!
