    1 thought on “Illuminated

    1. I don’t usually review books that I don’t finish. I have a rule that if you don’t finish it you can’t really do a complete review. BUT instead of a review I’m just going to explain why I didn’t finish this book.I once did a post called “It’s Not Me, It’s You” which was basically a post of books that I had started and didn’t finish for whatever reason, but I’ve found that I do a fairly good job at judging if I’m going to like a book before I read it… so I didn’t have [...]

    2. This book it wasn't what I expected when I first read the synopsis. You would think its an epic love story but its not. The story was kinda ok with the history themes, the book hunting and Abelard, Heloise and Astrolab story, but the mystery and romance was like I don't know It was like everything happening out of nothing. Calliope and August are assigned to find who's the author of The Book, right? So they go to this woman and she gives them the name of the author. Too easy. They are suppose to [...]

    3. Now this review is a tough one in the making as I have still not sorted out my feelings about this book to give it an honest review. But the book does deserve one so here I am.I am not much of a fan of starcrossed love stories unless they act as precedents to other happily ever after love stories. Not giving away too much of the ending here as you can see it coming from miles away. For starters the book begins with Calliope a 17 year old spending her summer holidays with her uncle who works at a [...]

    4. **This review contains spoilers. Read at your own risk***The beautiful cover (oh, what a cover) drew me in. The synopsis was intriguing. I actually couldn't wait to start this one. Unfortunately, this wasn't for me. I found the book to be--how can I say this nicely?--boring. Callie and August, the main characters, weren't all that interesting to me. Especially when Callie kept raving about how "hot/cute" August is. Callie just seemed really flat and uninteresting. August was slightly better--his [...]

    5. It was bad. It was really bad. I'm kind of bummed because I went in with high hopes, which was probably my first mistake. There are so many different directions you could go in when it comes to illuminated manuscripts and the story of Abelard and Heloise and in the beginning it seemed like Illuminated might go in one of them. But it didn't. The plot structure and the pacing sound (and I'm being serious here) like the way I would have written structure and pacing for Gilmore Girls fanfic when I w [...]

    6. There is such a thing as love at first sightA quest for the original author of a palimpsest---a parchment that has been erased for reuse---forms the backdrop for several dynamic relationships and the contrasts between them; contrasts brought into sharp relief by an old and dusty manuscript vs the young and vibrant teenagers who pursue it. Readers are easily drawn into the world of protagonist Calliope (Callie) Martin and the various pillars in her life: her father, with whom she is emotionally e [...]

    7. I am smitten with history and star-crossed love stories.Put them together and I am completely in love.I loved that Callie loved books especially Illuminated ones.And I loved that not only did I enjoyed reading this book, I also learned so many things: a 900 year old star-crossed love story and books that hid meanings.Honestly, I never knew Abelard and Heloise existed (same with Illuminated books) until I read this book.I was so engrossed in reading this that I finished it right a way. Never want [...]

    8. Sometimes an author makes a valiant attempt at romance based on a legend. Sometimes it results in a long saga that lags in spots, sometimes it is completely brilliant, sometimes it is a half-hearted attempt, and sometimes an agonizing failture. This one seems to be weighted on the side of half-hearted. The story has such potential that it's almost a shame that it ends up being so contrived. Callie is the spoiled, pampered-but-ignored daughter of a successful Boston lawyer. She is spending the su [...]

    9. Insta-love, and choppy brain dead writing. I usually always finish the books I start, however, I gave up here on page 86. I don't think I've ever been so bored in my life. I would recommend this book only if you had to sit at DMV for three hours and all the magazines are taken!

    10. What a snoozefest! Epic love story it is not. I am usually a sucker for star-crossed lovers and what-not but this book . . . yikes. Proof that a lovely cover does not equal a good story.

    11. ** Some spoilers **First off: I love the whole "love at first sight" thing, but this is to the extreme. They literally love each other right off the bat and act like they've known each other forever even though they met less than 24 hours. Who texts "I miss you" the night after meeting someone? No one.August doesn't tell her what attracted him to her except for "your beautiful and intellectual." Okay great. What other redeeming features are there?Her uncle is a horrible parent. Yes, she's respon [...]

    12. Brilliantly written.Illuminated is an anthology of love stories. There is a love story within a love story. Love stories beside a love story. It's awesome. When Callie meets August through her uncle's matchmaking endeavors, she is immediately attracted to him. And he to her. They embark on a search to discover the true story behind a mysterious manuscript which hides a love so beautiful it transcends time. As they learn the story hidden in the pages of the manuscript and that of Heloise and Abel [...]

    13. Callie's about to spend the summer before her senior year in New York City with her Uncle Henry. She thought that being a glorified assistant at his auction house would be the highlight of her three month stay until she meets August and they embark on an adventure to find the owner of an old and mysterious book.At first glance Illuminated sounds interesting. YA mixed with a bookish mystery that could rival The Shadow of the Wind. Unfurtuneatly all the back cover left me with was broken promises. [...]

    14. This was a pretty mediocre read for being the first book I read in 2012 to jumpstart my 52 in 52 challenge.Erica Orloff was a new author to me-- to be honest, this book was the first time I saw her name in the Barnes n Noble YA section. I read the author's bio at the end and I must admit that I was wary of buying the book because she is also an author of juvenile fiction. However, that was only part of the reason why this book gets a three out of five stars.The plot was phenomenal. I love books [...]

    15. Надписи,словно след чьего–то призрачного дыхания на окне,тихо шепчет нам свое послание сквозь века .Совершенно шикарная цитата в начале книги. Да и вообще, много в книги хороших цитат , про любовь, отношения. Хотя и шаблонных. Сама книга неплохая, интересная история, хотя и [...]

    16. Typically, I’m not a fan of relationships that reach an extremely deep level of commitment in an unbelievably short amount of time. However, in Illuminated, while I thought Callie and August’s relationship develops quickly, it works for me. Perhaps it’s the shared excitement, the adrenaline rush of being thrown together, hunting down clues to an archaic mystery together. Perhaps it’s the poetic, romantic words of A. bringing them together. Perhaps it’s the fact that August is just so s [...]

    17. OMG to even write a review for this seems to be an insult to my intelligence i lost half my iq reading this(grammar is gonna suck considering i have a ton of reviews to write and 27 minutes to do it battery is dying lol )the dude was way tooooooo nice and was wayyy to good to be realthe girl was just annoyingats right i dont remember there names i just remembered the guys and its augustif i was 13 or 15 i would of enjoyed the book maybe its because im older i dont care for it in the least

    18. Okay, so I liked the book essentially but I think if there would have been more to the 'national treasure'type hunt, it would have been better. 3 stars because of the lovers and it was sweet/bittersweet depending on which couple your talking about I liked but it could have had more plot/action in there. It was going too fast and I actually thought it might have a sequel because I really didnt think the author could end it so quickly. But alas, she did end it quickly and obviously no sequel.It wa [...]

    19. "The heavens may present a crown of stars, and may take that same crown, but the starcrossed lovers have the grandest passion of all."Interesting story! And I totally love August's letter to Calliope.(Excerpt)"we were united by the quest for the origins of the greatest love story ever. We were united by spirits from a thousand years ago. And now we'll spend the rest of our lives writing our own love story. I am forever yours, Calliope, my muse. Your A. August"Loved it!

    20. It was just ok. Underneath this gorgeous cover that so much potential, are hollow leads without emotion, action, or charm about them. I did love the ancient love story attached to the plot, and to be honest that was they part that kept me reading. Callie and August did nothing for me. The gay uncles were more fun to read. I am grateful this is a stand alone. There isn't enough material for another book.

    21. Algunas personas son como estrellas fugaces. Irrumpen en nuestras vidas como un arco espectacular, pero no se quedan mucho tiempo. Ellos simplemente dejan un rastro.

    22. The book was short, cute and kind of mysterious. I like Callie and August, but they relationship was too fast, too sudden. I know true love at the first sight but still there was something too sweet and unreal.

    23. Full of belief in loveeeeee answer is found when you are just about to lose hope and want to cling on to something for love.

    24. There’s just something about star-crossed lovers, isn’t there? I find it extremely interesting that some of the most enduring romances are the ones that end tragically. Arthur & Guinevere, Tristan & Isolde, and of course, Romeo & Juliet, just to name a few. So what keeps us coming back to the unhappy ending? For me, it’s the promise of what might have been; the way the two lovers burned impossibly bright before everything went so horribly wrong. It’s the ever-present “what [...]

    25. Loved it. A smart, tender book I devoured, the kind of book you'd want to read on a cold, rainy day with a cozy blanket and a hot drink. The chunks of history woven with a tiny bit of the supernatural offers deep lessons of finding and keeping love.

    26. A bit of YA frivolity. Not too bad, but I can tell you that if I had read this as a teenager my book loving heart would have swooned. As an adult I just kind of smile and roll my eyes.

    27. From the moment I saw the cover for Illuminated, I knew I wanted to read it! The premise sounded good too and I was happy that it didn’t give everything away. Illuminated is the story of two teens who meet after Callie’s uncle acquires a rare palimpest (people wrote on these thousands of years ago when paper didn't exist, usually made of papyrus or vellum) to fix up.The book itself is really small so you know that the book is going to go either really fast or really slow. The plot focuses a [...]
