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 the glamorous Gilded Age, Michele meets the young man with striking blue eyes who has haunted her dreams all her life – a man she always wished was real, but never imagined could actually exist. And she finds herself falling for him, into an otherworldly, time-crossed romance.

Michele is soon leading a double life, struggling to balance her contemporary high school world with her escapes into the past. But when she stumbles upon a terrible discovery, she is propelled on a race through history to save the boy she loves – a quest that will determine the fate of both of their lives.

Book 14/60 - 2015 Goodreads Reading Challenge

Timeless is a time travel story. That's all  can really tell you because well, I didn't get to finis the full book therefore this review will be extremely short.

I picked up this book because I thought that I would love it. I was intrigued by the blurb and the cover was pretty too but I was wrong. 

I was wrong on so many levels. I was only able to read to 28% of this book which frankly isn't that far. So the question is...why did I stop? I stopped reading this book simply because I didn't like it. I didn't like the opening, the writing style, the slow pace and most importantly I didn't like the main protagonist and I didn't want to waste time in reading a book that I just wasn't liking. 

I will therefore not be reading the next installment to this book which finishes off the duology (I think that it is only 2 books, I'm not sure), but that is just the way it is.
