Summary (from Goodreads)

New Hampshire high school junior Lizzie Davenport has been reincarnated from Regency Era, England … but she doesn’t know it yet.

Then Drew Carmichael transfers into Lizzie’s school at the beginning of the year, and she feels a connection to him, almost like she knows him. She can’t stop thinking about him, but whenever she tries talking with him about the mysteries behind her feelings, he makes it clear that he wants nothing to do with her. Reaching him is even more difficult because she has a boyfriend, Jeremy, who has started to become full of himself after being elected co-captain of the varsity soccer team, and her flirtatious best friend Chelsea starts dating Drew soon after his arrival. So why can’t she seem to get him out of her mind?

Even though Lizzie knows she should let go of her fascination with Drew, the pair of them soon find that fighting fate isn’t going to be easy.



It is so funny that Michelle Madow says that this book is based off Taylor Swift’s song and music video for “Love Story” because what I love about Taylor Swift’s music is that it always makes me smile- and that is exactly what Remembrance made me do. Smile. A lot. It was just such a cute story. One that I think any reader will fall in love with.

The characters were all love or hate for me. I hated Jeremy right off the bat. He grew on me a smidge toward the middle of the book, but he was just so self-involved. I think I disliked him because he could not hold a candle to Drew. So I might have been a little biased, but even when Drew was acting distant and cold, I still liked him more than Jeremy.

I really liked Lizzie and I love how much detail went into each of her memories or flashbacks. They were one of my favorite things about the book. I also loved how they knew so many random facts about each other. It was so cute. Because I loved Drew and Lizzie so much, I got so frustrated when they would not get together. I wanted to scream at my kindle for them to just kiss already. Or, really to just do anything! Don’t worry though, you will not be disappointed.

The story flows so well and it is beautifully written. I had to stop reading it a few times because I did not want it to be over. I watched Taylor Swift’s music video during my reading breaks actually. But then, I had to jump right back into the book because I had to know how it would all turn out. I couldn’t wait!

Remembrance is such a charming and lovely story that I know it will have you smiling the whole way through. I could not get rid of the silly grin after I finished the book. It put me in such a great mood. I loved it!


4.5/5 Gavels.

    Yeah, I’m holding off just a bit on this one because I’m planning to get either a Kindle or a Kobo and I think this is going to be the first book I read on it. I’m glad to hear that you liked it. It sounds like its going to be my kinda story. I’m excited to read it!

    Great review! I’ve been curious about this one since hearing it’s based on Taylor Swift’s Love Story, glad it made you smile!

    Because I’ve been so overwhelmed I passed on reading this one for review (though there is a giveaway for it on my blog) but I’ve heard lots of good things and I do love the cover! So glad you loved it!

    I love books like this! (Cute romances that just make you smile, I mean.) Love Story is such a sweet song, too. ๐Ÿ™‚ I am going to have to read this!
