guess what book is available today....
TIMELESS by Michelle Madow....

This is the third and final installment of the Transcend Time Saga...and it's a wonderful book.

about the book:


In Remembrance, Lizzie and Drew changed the course of fate so they could be together. 

In Vengeance, Chelsea set fate back on its original, deadly path. 

Now, strange things keep happening to Lizzie. Things that are omens of darkness to come. A curse has doomed her to die an early death, just as she did in her past life. To make things worse, even if she can figure out who cast the curse, it's irreversible. There's only one option left for her to save herself. It's crazier than anything she's heard yet, and to do it, she'll need Drew and Chelsea's help.

Because to make things right, they must go back to when it all began.....

My thoughts:

I loved this book.  It's the end of a great love story.  If you've read


you'll remember the curse put on Lizzie.  Lizzie, Drew and Chelsea have to go back in time to undo the damage of the curse, to save Lizzie's life.  The story isn't cut and dry.  You don't know what's going to happen each step of the way.  Michelle does a wonderful job keeping the reader guessing until the very end.   Most of my questions were resolved at the end of the story, but not all.   

I love the story, especially the character.  They are flawed but real.  I especially love Drew, he is a real person, warts and all...just kidding, he doesn't have warts, but he does have a lot of flaws.  I think it's what makes these characters so real.  They are not perfect.

I am a believer in reincarnation, so that wasn't a problem for me. 

Read the book, but read the first two in the series first.

Top Five Songs that Inspire Me to Write
When I wrote Remembrance, I created a playlist that I listened to while writing! Here are the top five songs from that playlist that I found most inspiring. 

1) “Love Story” by Taylor Swift
I suppose this one was obvious, since “Love Story” inspired the entire story of Remembrance! Every time I listen to it or watch the video I think about Lizzie and Drew’s story. 

2) “Change” by Taylor Swift
This song inspires me to keep working and going for my dreams, and hope that good things will happen!

3) “How to Save a Life” by The Fray
This song reminds of the end scenes of Remembrance. If there’s ever a Remembrance movie, I imagine this song would have a part in the trailer! 

4) “White Horse” by Taylor Swift
This song perfectly embodies Lizzie’s frustration when she feels like Drew is pushing her away.

5) “Worth the Fight” by Across the Oceans
This is the song in the Remembrance Book Trailer! For me, it embodies the entire feel of the book. 
*More information on the Remembrance playlist, including a Spotify playlist so you can listen to it yourself, can be found HERE.

Thank you, Donna, for having me on Book Lover’s Paradise!

Thank you Michelle...keep writing, we love your work!!!

Michelle Madow was inspired to write Remembrance after seeing Taylor Swift's "Love Story" music video while a junior at Rollins College in Winter Park, FL. The song and video gave her the story idea about a high school girl reincarnated from Regency Era, England. She handed in the first chapter as a homework assignment for class, and when her teacher and classmates wanted her to continue writing, she decided to go for it. By the end of the school year, her first novel was completed!

Michelle lives in Florida, where she is hard at work writing more novels for young adults.
