Quite a few years ago I had read P.S. I Love You so I was very excited to find this title on NetGalley! My excitement ended there. The book is written as a series of letters and e-mails. I was hoping it was just going to be that first chapter. It was cute reading the letters written by young Rosie and Alex. But when that format continued throughout the entire book... No thanks. I found that it made it impossible for me to connect to either of the main characters and I found myself skimming more than I would like to admit. Unfortunately it was enough of an annoyance to me that I decided to not finish the book. It made me kind of sad because based on the plot summary this was a book I should have loved! But I just could not get passed the way the book was written. I guess I'll have to see the movie to find out what happens. I'll give it 2 stars rather than 1 because I really do think I would have loved this story if the writing style hadn't gotten in the way. ( )

A light, poignant story about two childhood friends with the worst timing. And even though it takes them years to get there, they find each other in the end ♡

This is written in letter format - which I normally dislike, but Ahern made it work. ( )

This is an amazing book who opened my mind and made me dream of «what if». I truly love that the characters seemed to come to life while reading the book, and I found myself smiling and crying by the end of it. For a few days after the first time I read it, I couldn't stop asking myself if anything could be really be impossible. ( )

I bought this book because my girl friend kept telling me it is a must! So I bought it. When I saw it was written in letters, I closed it and didn't look at it for like 2 years. One day I felt very down and it looked so pink so I read it and without knowing how, I was in the middle rooting for Alex and Rosie to please be together!! *Spoilers* Though the ending is upsetting to me, they waited forever to be together but it was a happy one too, I loved this book because it was so real and touchingly human and I laughed for days about her stupid husband being beaten by the guys Rosie drunkenly spoke to at the bar!! I guess this is my favorite part in the book. And of course I loved Ruby!! Great Pal. When I was finally done, I thanked my friend for recommending this book, I just loved it!!

From the parts that made me laugh, this one was the best... you know when Rosie is depressed and she enters this shady bar and meet two criminal looking guys (they turn out to be criminals alright) and she tells them about her asshole ex-husband. When she discovers what happens to him, I just can't stop laughing! ( )

Quotations
Our life is made up of time. Our days are measured in hours, our pay measured by those hours, our knowledge is measured by years. We grab a quick few minutes in our busy day to have a coffee break. We rush back to our desks, we watch the clock, we live by appointments. And yet time eventually runs out and you wonder in your heart of hearts if those seconds, minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years and decades were spent the best way they possibly could.

The new novel from the number 1 bestselling author of PS, I Love You is a bittersweet tale of childhood friends Rosie and Alex whose relationship must survive many trials and tribulations, not least the discovery of their true feelings for one another. From naughty children to rebellious teenagers, Rosie and Alex have stuck by each other through thick and thin. But just as they're discovering the joys of teenage nights on the town and dating disasters, they're separated. Alex's family moves from Dublin to America -- and Alex goes with them. For good. Rosie's lost without her best friend. But on the eve of her departure to join Alex in Boston, Rosie gets news that will change her life forever -- and keep her at home in Ireland. Their magical connection sees them through the ups and downs of each other's lives but neither of them knows whether their friendship can really survive the years and miles -- as well as new relationships. And at the back of Rosie's mind is whether they were meant to be more than just good friends all along. Misunderstandings, circumstances and sheer bad luck have kept them out of each others' arms, but when presented with the ultimate opportunity, will they gamble everything -- including their friendship -- for true love? Destiny, Alex and Rosie discover, is a funny thing and fate isn't quite done with them yet...
