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
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
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.
At the beginning of Timeless, I was a little worried. This book had been on my wishlist for so long, I had been reading all these great reviews on it, and (bonus!) the cover was gorgeous! So, upon picking up this book and starting to read it, I got kind of doubtful. Is this book going to be that good? Will I even like it that much? Well by the time I was barely 30 pages in, those doubts flew away. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. There are so much levels to how amazing this book is.
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

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
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 book begins with a normal girl who goes to a normal high school named Michele, but one thing is different about her. All her life she has had these dreams about this guy. Some were enjoyable and others were rather disturbing. Everything is good until a tragedy happens. Mic...more
Truthfully I have never been fond of books that tackle time travel and books like these are probably the reason why. Time travel is an interesting concept but when you dive into a book expecting a decent helping of the subject but get a whole lot of teenage drama and too much cheesy romance, well, safe to say I wasn't pleased. Not at all.

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
