Review: Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern

A.K.A Rosie Dunne
A.K.A Where Rainbows End


From the bestselling author of PS, I Love You comes a delightfully enchanting novel about what happens when two people who are meant to be together just can't seem to get it right.

Rosie and Alex are destined for one another, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, their relationship gets closer by the day, until Alex gets the news that his family is leaving Dublin and moving to Boston. At 17, Rosie and Alex have just started to see each other in a more romantic light. Devastated, the two make plans for Rosie to apply to colleges in the U.S.

She gets into Boston University, Alex gets into Harvard, and everything is falling into place, when on the eve of her departure, Rosie gets news that will change their lives forever: She's pregnant by a boy she'd gone out with while on the rebound from Alex.

Her dreams for college, Alex, and a glamorous career dashed, Rosie stays in Dublin to become a single mother, while Alex pursues a medical career and a new love in Boston. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel, structured as a series of clever e-mails, letters, notes, and a trail of missed opportunities, Alex and Rosie find out that fate isn't done with them yet.

From the gifted author of PS, I Love You comes this charming, romantic, addictively page-turning novel that will keep readers laughing and guessing until the very last page.

AHHHHH Where to begin?! I got super excited to read this after I saw the movie and BAM! finally got my hands on it! So freaking excited! Anyways, first thing about this book, its written in chat messeges, emails, and letters. Which at first I didnt think would be appealing to me when I first found out but then I loved it. Its basicly like looking into someones life and figuring out what they were feeling yet still wondering if thats all that they were actually feeling or simply saying... You know? Its a funny book, its full of humor and I LOVE Alex, of course I kept picturing Sam Claflin as Alex, so that might have been the reason I was so in love with him xD as well as Rosie being Lily Collins.

Just... look at him *heart eyes emoji here*
It was a beautiful movie and its a beautiful book. Its so stressing how it takes them so long to get together, but thats the reality of life. It just doesnt happen easily and things keep getting in the way. I was sad that the book didnt give more in the epilogue but at the same time it was kind of perfect. 
I might actually make this picture my computer wallpaper... BYE BYE CINDERELLA

Recommend it?
Yup, if you like romance novels, this might be for you. I suggest you read an excerpt first though, the way its written might not be everyones cup of tea.
