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
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

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 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
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.
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'll admit it, the first thing that drew me to this book was the face of a beautiful girl looking wonderingly from the cover. However, what drew me into this book isn't the pretty cover. The description on the inside of the book is really intriguing and gives just enough information for the unassuming reader to buy the book or check it out from the local library.
Michele Windsor, the protagonist of the novel, loses her mother in...more
Michele Windsor's life in NY is so very different from her life in California: instead of a small house she shares with her mother, she's now living in a mansion with her grandparents. And school is a whole new thing, because for...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
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

This book... Oh. My. God. Oh my god. Oh my god. Oh my god!
*an infinite hours later*
OK so I can breath a bit normally now, but still OH MY GOD! That ending?! How?! What?! HOW?!
OK I realize I'm being utterly ridiculous but I just can't help it; it's not just the fact that the ending left me gasping and scrambling to find the 2nd book as soon as possible but it's also the fact that the characters were flawless, the story was outstanding and all in all it was such a...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

Sie muss zu ihren Großeltern ziehen, denen sie noch nie im Leben begegnet ist. Das Leben in New York und das in luxuriösen Kreisen ist für Michele etwas völlig neues und der gesellschaftliche Druck der nun auf sie lastet ist ihr zu viel.
Als sie dann das Tagebuch eines Vorfahren findet, landet sie im Jahre 1910. Dort angekommen, trifft sie auf einen Jungen der schon lange auf sie wartet und a...more
i have a confession to make. i acctually finished this book this morning at around 2am. i had to stop whilst reading a few times to go and youtube the serenades referred to in the book- Schubert's serenade, to be exact. and then i had to go and try and find the sheet music so i could learn it on piano!
ok, so obviously there were aspects that i loved, and then some aspects that i would have liked more of- more emotion, more romance, i think. which might be silly because this entire novel revol...more
Rating: 8/10 cookiez
I love this book so much! I really love books about time travel. I really enjoyed reading this book and I cannot wait to read the next book in this series. I really loved the plot. To tell you the truth, I thought this book was going to be below average compared to the other books that I read. I was wrong! This book was above most of the other books that I read. I feel like this book and I are going to be really happy together. I am in love! *insert fan-girl scream here*...more
