    1. Veronica ⭐️

      Lisa, a shy reserved fourteen year old girl, has come to live with her estranged father while she finishes her last year at school before moving to America to live with her mother.Lisa finds school boring and her mind often wanders to her favourite novel and more so the character of Tertius, a medieval knight. Tertius appears to Lisa in a spirit sense and tells her he is not happy with the story at all. “The author wrote me all wrong,” he says. They form a strong bond and help each other wit [...]

      At first, I wasn't sure if this was my type of book, mainly because it is a teenage story, but it was much more than that with a deeper message. The more I got into it, it clearly was my kind of book. Lisa's parents are divorced, and she is spending a year with her father, an artist, and the parent she clearly needs to work out her issues with. She is reading a novel, a fairy tale, about a princess in a tower and a somewhat reluctant prince who keeps coming to her or manifesting as a real person [...]

      This was one of the books I can’t write anything negative about because I was completely smitten by the beautiful writing, perfect editing and a thoughtful plot.After reading the premise,I had a feeling that I'd like it. My melancholic diary is a well constructed story of 14 year old, Lisa who is confused of her desires as most teenagers her age. Lisa is shy, sensitive and witty but she usually struggles to get over general gloominess. The author has really nailed the character. Lisa’s actio [...]

      For those who know my reviews, I don't give out 5 stars to every book I read! With that said, this novel is worthy of all 5 stars!Nicely written, great pace, and a truly enjoyable story. A story within a story to be exact and a colorfully told one at that. Excellent YA/Teen novel that will spark your interest from the first chapter and keep you hooked until the very end. You will learn the meaning of Melancholic by the end of this book and at times want to shake Lisa and tell her to grow up and [...]

      I want to thank my GoodReads friend, A.S. Johnson for recommending this treasure to me. She was right, I did love it!Once I got the recommendation I found that I could get it through Kindle Unlimited so I set about getting it right away. I already had tons of books ahead of it on my 'currently reading shelf', but I got around to it finally. So glad I did!Where was this book when I was growing up? Oh, yeah, the author probably wasn't born yet. What a great way to learn how fanciful a diary could [...]

      My Melancholic Diary is a charming story that vividly threads together a young girl’s relationship with her father, her school crush, and a character from her favorite book. Fourteen-year-old Lisa, is shy, insecure, and struggling to forgive her father, a painter who is mercurial, obsessive, and borderline narscisstic, for his erratic behaviors and four-year absence from her life after his divorce from her mother.Much like myself at her age, Lisa is a devoted reader and hopeless romantic. She [...]

      The characters in this book were so well developed and easy to get to know. I feel like I had a clear image of who everyone was, even the first time I heard about them. I liked the believable action of Lisa and Hanna, and although crazy, Lisa's dad was a great and strong character that provided a great contrast to the other characters. Some of the language felt a little too mature for the age of the character, but I think it kind of works since she is in Europe. Her language skills might be more [...]

      'My Melancholy Diary' is a beautifully written story that felt dreamlike and was like nothing I’ve read before. Lisa is reading her diary written 16 years earlier when she was fourteen and living with her father in the countryside near Prague. The story focuses on her last remaining months of elementary school before she leaves him to live with her mother in New York. Iva Kenaz captures the emotional reflections of an intelligent and sensitive girl, who is facing change and uncertainty. Lisa i [...]

      My Melancholic Diary is positively enchanting. I made notes on GoodReads whilst I read, and I couldn't help but notice how similarly styled this is to old V.C. Andrews works. Only instead of incest, abuse, and rape, we're reading about young love, the power of fantasy, and how your average girl deals with day-to-day life.Lisa is obsessed with a character from a book named Tertius. He's dashing and handsome, and in love with a princess Lisa initially dismisses as haughty and arrogant. But as she [...]

      This is the second book by Iva Kenaz, and is a beautifully written, atmospheric coming-of-age tale. In a literary world populated with tales of 'special ones' who discover they are unique, gifted, and destined for great things, it is refreshing to read about one that most of us can relate to. Lisa is a normal teenager with normal self awareness and low self esteem, awkwardly trying to maintain a relationship with her slightly manic father after her parents' divorce, and coping with being an outs [...]

    11. Heidi Skarie

      My Melancholic Diary is a heart-opening coming of age story about Lisa, a fourteen-year-old girl, who finds it easier to live in books than in real life. She is living with her eccentric, artist father for a year. She hasn’t seen him after her parent’s divorce four years ago. She longs for her father’s love and is struggling to fit in at school. Lisa loves one of her books and relates to the main characters who is a guard and hopelessly in love with the princess he guards. He doesn’t hav [...]

      This is a story of a teenage girl finding love and most of all finding herself. The author actually tells her own story which makes it very personal and impactful. The love she seeks involves her estranged and eccentric yet loving Dad, an unlikely boy at school and of course the fictional character Tertius.The author draws from later experience and knowledge as we read the teenager's diary of her inner struggles and outer insecurities. This book could be a treasure for young teens, and anyone el [...]

      I was very excited to hear that Iva Kenaz published her new novel! And having read it, I can honestly tell I was once again pleasantly surprised. It's different from her debut novel, different settings and themes but in some ways it's similar. It's about a girl growing up and getting over her fears.I read the book in one breath. There were so many questions set up at the beginning that it made me want to know how Lisa, the main character, resolves them.It's a girl's story, however, I believe it' [...]

    14. Ivanaaxman

      I loved reading this book! It’s so nicely written and the main character Lisa, though melancholic and dreamy, is also quite witty. And her fictional friend Tertius is so sweet! I enjoyed their relationship and how his story reflects hers. Overall, the novel is romantic and philosophical, however, the father character also brings comedy. What touched me most is how Lisa deals with her insecurities and fears and how much she wants to establish inner peace with her father. She certainly is a very [...]

    15. Alice Coburn

      This was such a delightful read. It soothed my heart. I loved the relationship between Lisa and Tertius, their likewise struggles and the friendship they shared! I also enjoyed the Dad and the classmate, Elijah, as they were really interesting characters. Particularly the the Dad, he is really something! His persona and the crazy ideas and dialogues made me laugh many times. I couldn't stop reading, I fell in love instantly. It stroke something within me and stays with me until now. I will defin [...]

      It was a melancholic but also surprisingly funny story. I like honest books and this one was one of those that capture the reader's heart. I was touched by it.

    19. Mark

      I loved this story and related to the characters. I found that the story was interesting to read about. I related to Lisa as she was so into her book and the character Tertius had similar life problems to her. Both of them were able to relate to each other and lean on each other for help. I thought that the author did a great job with this book and it was well-written. Highly recommend it!
