(Review) Remembrance by Michelle Madows

Goodreads' summery:
"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."
4.5/5 stars
     I have been looking forward to reading this book for a long time; the idea of a novel based on an artist's songs drew me in immediately. When I won it in a giveaway, I was ecstatic. I hadn't really done an extreme amount of research on the plot and admittedly, I was completely blown away by the quality and content of the work.
     I really enjoyed this novel. The cover was beautiful and connected with the story, the idea and basis was great, and the story was written well. I enjoyed the characters. Even though Remembrance isn't a book I would normally read (more romance focused than plot focused) I liked and would recommend it to other readers. I do, however, wish there had been more transition between Lizzie before she started researching reincarnation and Lizzie reliving her life.
     Overall, I definitely recommend this book to other readers. I would suggest other readers read it with an open mind or do more research on the plot content before diving in with expectations. I read this book as my first book after my week-long reading hiatus and managed to place it on a type of pedestal.

Happy 2012 everyone!
