Blog Tour: Review of I Remember You by Cathleen Davitt Bell+Giveaway

After reading the blurb of I Remember You I knew that I had to read this book, a guy predicting the future? Sign me up! The plot feels like a breath of fresh air to me, especially with other books which has the same story and all. I read this book after receiving a copy and was halfway through that I didn’t notice but then I had to stop because life (college) happens and interfere with my reading. Getting back with this book is very easy that I finished it in just a few hours and that’s what I’m looking for a story, something really catches my attention. I Remember You tackles a different kind of love story with a dash of time travel. I like how the written style of the book is like a diary that I get to know the whole story by Juliet’s mind. Each moment were delivered with enough detail that I felt every second of it.

Lucas and Juliet both carry a strong character in the story. They were both believable in each moment they were presented. At first I was hesitant to like Juliet because of her attitude towards Rosemary that she became secretive and change just because of her feelings for Lucas, but as the story goes I understand where this decision is coming from. I see the changes in her throughout the story; she became wiser in her decisions and stand up for herself. Lucas is the kind of character that you can’t just not like, despite of his oddity with knowing the future.  He has this pull that will make you love him may it be his good-looking personality or the charm he has towards Juliet and the other characters, I don’t know I just adore him. The relationship that built between this two all started because of the premonition of Lucas but even though with this kind of insta-love development I love how both of these characters matured in this relationship, they face problems with Lucas’ ability to know what’s going to happen between them and fought through the hardship.

The only problem I had with this book is the question that keeps me reading ‘til the end. Why Lucas? How can he tell what would happen to him and Juliet? And still I didn’t get the answer I wanted that brought me to rate this 3.5 instead of 4 quills. But if you’re someone who’s not very particular about each aspect of a book then you will definitely like this book and overlook this issue.

I Remember You

Release Date: February 10th 2015
For fans of THE FUTURE OF US comes an engrossing story of two teens, whose love for each other is tested by time and fate.

Lucas and Juliet couldn’t be more different from each other. But from the moment Lucas sees Juliet, he swears he remembers their first kiss. Their first dance. Their first fight. He even knows what’s going to happen between them—not because he can predict the future, but because he claims to have already lived it.
