Recycled Souls a nook book-written by Lynette Ferreira- deserves five stars and is one of the best books that I have read in a long time. It’s relatable to teenage girls everywhere. Throughout the book it’s hard not to feel similarly to Elizabeth. Elizabeth is an ordinary High Schooler, is forced to move away from her life in America, and move to -not a new house, or city- Ireland. Here her life will be turned upside down and she loses the boy she falls in love with, after a terrible accident wh ...more

We start off meeting Elizabeth just as her crush spoke to her and she can't wait to share her news. However, when she arrives home, her mother & stepfather have some news of their own. Elizabeth is of course devastated to learn that they are moving to Ireland.
The family arrives in Ireland, and predictably Elizabeth begins to act like a spoiled brat with her crying and moping around; you would think that a girl (unsure of age) with seemingly no friends would jump at the chance to start over

I love the idea of two souls being connected and finding each other at different points through time. The coming together of two souls who may have been kept apart previously by circumstance, finding each other again and hopefully getting it right.

Elizabeth has always be very good at covering up her emotions. Making people believe that all is right in her world. When she and her family relocate from California to Ireland she tries her hardest to cover her unhappiness.

It was a great story. As an editor, I would love to get my hands on this story. There are a lot of spelling and grammatical errors that could be fixed quite easily. The whole premise of "recycling souls" is rather interesting but it could use a bit of clarification or more flashbacks to show connection, not just the dad telling a story and them thinking, "Oh, that must be us." I was a little confused as to the correlation between Devlin and Gerard, and Jared and Joshua. Was Joshua a "recycled so ...more

OMG I felt like I was on a rollercoaster ride when I read this book. The emotions of being a teenager, experiencing being the new kid in town, of first love, loss, rejection, of hope for happiness when all odds are against you - and then getting hurt, pushing everything away - until love comes to find you and makes you start all over again. It's a wonderful and amazing book you'll think about after you finish. You may even want to go back and read it again. I know I'm going to.

This book had me hooked from the first word to the last. Having moved a lot my self when I was younger, I really connected with Elizabeth. Jared's dedication to Elizabeth after the accident broke my heart and I actually cried when she turned him away thinking it was for his own good. I could go on forever about this book but let me not spoil it for anyone! I highly recommend this book. It was brilliant!

Wow, what a powerful story this is! I felt like I was on an emotional roller coaster as I was alternately so happy and so sad for Elizabeth during her different circumstances (no spoilers though)... That is a sign of a good book when it gets you so emotionally involved! Lynette has become one of my favorite Indie authors as all her books that I have read draw you in and you don't want to put them down because you just have to know what is going to happen next! I love th

This was a great love story to give you butterflies, but it was a quick no-brainer read. I hated how there was no build up to the two people falling in love, although I realize that was kind of the whole point. Because of that though, it made it feel rather fake in that aspect. I was also not made to really like any of the main characters in this novel. They were just blah...

I only realised I had a talent for story telling when I was in my forties.

Before the day I sat down and really started writing, I had ideas for stories but I was always too busy doing other things to really put my focus into story writing. I would write a few words, then crumple the paper and bin it.

I am a firm believer that there is a moment for every thing, and everything else in my life had to
“I focus on the bright light, without seeing, wondering if it is just a weird coincidence that when people die they always say go towards the light, and if you are born you have to travel through a tunnel towards a light. Would this mean that moving towards the light is in actual fact being reborn, like being reincarnated? Would this possibly then mean that our souls really are recycled, and that we do come back repeatedly, until we get it right and I keep getting it wrong?” 5 likes
