Timeless (Timeless #1)
When tragedy strikes Michele Windsor’s world, she is forced to uproot her life and move across the country to New York City, to live with the wealthy, aristocratic grandparents she’s never met. In their old Fifth Avenue mansion filled with a century’s worth of family secrets, Michele discovers a diary that hurtles her back in time to the year 1910. There, in the midst of t...more
It is infatuation when you fall in love with someone's blue eyes after dreaming of him.
It is infatuation when your heart breaks when thinking of him when you've only met him once.
It is infatuation when you feel like you can't live your life without him after meeting him twice.
It is infatuation when you ignore your own future for his past.
It is infatuation when you ignore a perf...more
If that was not clear enough then YES, I loved this book.
This was 'love at first page' and now my heart is broken because I want so badly to know what happens next. I'm holding my breath for the sequel and it's gonna take a lot of waiting until the next one comes out.
Back to the book:
The story starts with a dream, a beautiful dream that defines the whole s...more

For one, it literally left me with something I like to call a complete brain rape. What's a brain rape, you ask? It's a book that, at night, left me so totally shocked that I literally lay awake for an extra hour after finishing going what the hell just happened? This book was so intertwined with every single bit of information that Monir ever introduced to us (like her name! Come on don't tell me that'...more
For as long as she can remember, Michele's had the same recurring dream about a young, blue-eyed man. The dream always leaves her wondering and wanting to know more about him, but that's all she can do. Because he's not real, only a dream. But after a tragedy forces Michele to live with her grandparents all the way in New York City, and with the help of a key left behind by a family member, Michele is transported back in time and discovers that the mysterious man may not be a dream afte...more
I thought the whole concept of time-traveling and falling in love with some guy from like 200 years or whatever was interesting, but honestly, I felt like I was reading a book by a 12 year old. It was girly, and the characters were boring and didn't have enough personality.
I can't remember this very well, so I can't give as m...more
For some reason I struggled a little with this book. I liked the beginning, it kind of dragged for me in the middle, but then somewhere, somehow, I feel in love with this book by the end.
Timeless is an elegant, exquisitely written book with such a brilliant concept. Alexandra Monir does such a fascinating job of transporting her readers and entwining the story through time. It's a slow moving piece, but I think it was written to be read that way, to collect the right atmosphere for the...more
Michele is 16 and granddaughter of the super rich Windsor family in New York. When she has to move in with them she finds a key and suddenly her journey though Time begins.
Michele is living her family history through visiting her female ancestors when they are around the same age as she is. Only they can see Michele and she discovers so much about her family that she finally begins to warm up for them. And...more
First, I'll say that I can forgive a lot of bad writing if the story is fantastic/exciting/creative (don't hate me for saying so, Potter fans, but JK Rowling had this effect on me - her world was just so COMPLETE, even if I had to slog through endless pages that should have ended up on the cutting room floor, so to speak)...more
It was beyond surprise for me to find a lot of people liking this book. And it rather made me shocked that this book got published. For the ones reading this review, I am sorry for the harsh comment. If you like this book and didn't agree with me, it's fine. I appreciate your thoughts and opinions.
Summary; Michele Windsor lives a beautiful life, with loving mother and perfect friends, until tragedy came; her mother died. She is then dragged to New York to live with her long lost grandparents in...more
This looks like one of the impossible "star-crossed" romances. Such difficult situations do bring up strong feelings but I'm not one of those people who enjoy pointless angst.
That doesn't mean the story has to be all flowers and sunshine but an ending with a nice solid solution that leaves the heroine with a hopeful outlook on her life would be appreciated.
I would love to read this book then.
"What if the person you're meant to be with lives in another time?"
OH YEAH, Timetravel ladies and gentlemen! is one of my all time favorites, so I fell for this one like a moth to a flame!
Is it just me or does the girl on the cover look like Jason Stackhouse from Trueblood, ex-girlfriend
So this is basically about Michele, whom mother has just recently died and left custody of her daughter to her estranged parents, whom just happen t...more
I have no idea what to think.
While I can't say that I really enjoyed reading this book, I can't really find any faults with it, either. The writing was good, not very repetitive. The cover is gorgeous (though that's not how I imagined Michele at all). And the plot, besides the fact that a large portion of it came right out of Dead Beautiful was fairly unique.
I am annoyed...more
Let’s see. What do I say about a book so amazing. I can’t put this book into words it was just so incredible. Imagine being able to time travel. *sigh*
Michele has been having dreams about this boy that has the most beautiful sapphire eyes. She is attracted to him, but never saw him in her entire life. In the same dreams she has been having since she was a little kid.
This book was filled with so many twists and mystery, I couldn’t keep my eyes from flying over every word, s...more
So what do I mean by that? Well, that the book had potential but the author was too lazy to see to it. It reminded me of the pretty purple lighter in my car that's full of butane and sparks when I click it but for some reason never creates a flame. But hey, it was cheaply made in China, what do I really expect?
Like my lighter and its pretty purple exterior, this novel wasn't without a...more
As I started reading it I actually looked up reviews on it. They were pretty much all really good. Everyone loved it and fell in love with the story.
I’m sad to say that I didn’t quite feel the same as everyone else. I’ll break it down for you in the good and th...more
The main characters. I love it when you have characters that are artistic in some way, specificly musical. I love love love it when song lyrics are incorperated into novels. And did you know that the author actually wrote and recorded the songs from the book?! An you can actually buy them on iTunes!
The atmosphere. The main charate...more
There are just not enough words for how good this book really is. It´s kind of Alice in Wonderland meets Time Travelers Wife meets history.
I´m so happy that Michele and Philip got their chanse for Happily Ever After, and...more
I haven't read much books about time traveling so it's always refreshing when I find one. This book has a really nice plot and I must say characters (you already know which one). Perhaps it's not the best book you'll find around, but still you'll enjoy in the story.
Especially good part of this book is the ending, so somewhere deep inside of me I know that the second book w...more
- The voice that the author used drove me a little crazy. The descriptions were too detailed (do we really need to know what every single character was wearing?); the dialogue sounded scripted; and there were so many references to specific brands I started to wonder if the book had corporate sponsorshi...more
+ Michele was such an awesome main character. She was honest, sweet, loving, caring, and exactly the kind of person I'd want to be friends with. Philip was great, too!...more
+ I loved their romance of past vs. present, it was such a different, unique concept for me! Plus, they bonded over music. Music is universal and can withstand time, so it seemed like the perfect thing thing for them to share.
+ The time-travel! This book has made me realize how am
Can you put a time limit on love? According to this book, no. Michele's had dreams about a young man since she was a little girl and never understood why she felt so much love for this stranger. When
Michele finds the beautiful chain with the key, she is transported back in time to her ancestors. From 1910, to the roaring 20's, and through the World War Michele is there.
Monir paints such a vivid picture for the reader while describing old NYC. I live in NY so the landmarks and stree...more
