Love, Rosie
Love, Rosie | Cecelia Ahern
The basis for the motion picture starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin! What happens when two people who are meant to be together can't seem to get it right? Rosie and Alex are destined for each other, and everyone seems to know it but them. Best friends since childhood, they are separated as teenagers when Alex and his family relocate from Dublin to Boston. Like two ships always passing in the night, Rosie and Alex stay friends, and though years pass, the two remain firmly attached via emails and letters. Heartbroken, they learn to live without each other. But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel o f several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn't quite done with them yet.

I decided to give this one another shot since I previously put it in my DNF list. I typically enjoy books written in this format of letters, emails, and messages. It just seems to feel more personal. The problem for me was I didn't feel like I was rooting for the main characters. More than once I felt irritated on both the character's decisions. Also it seemed so long and drawn out in places. Then suddenly it would just blur right past others.

This is both her second novel and the second book I‘ve read by Cecilia Ahern. Initially I was annoyed with the style of conversations via emails and text because the messages were choppy. It was a little difficult to become engaged in the story. But I did enjoy this book and I really loved how she portrayed friendships and loyalty. I will reread this next year. #funread #ceciliaahern

Sorry it‘s a bit of a spoiler from the book Love Rosie by Cecilia Ahern but this scene made me LOL. I can‘t believe that this was only her second book and that she was only 23 when she wrote it. #Irishbooks #romanticnovels #booklove

Love, Rosie | Cecelia Ahern

Love, Rosie the movie: in comparison to the novel, instead of a span of 50 years, the end is reached in 12 years time frame. The movies ties in many of the communications from the book. The movie cuts about half of the plot out to meet the allotted time for a movie but that is what makes the movie better than the book. Love the soundtrack

Texreader I love reading your comparisons to movies! Also it sounds like I should try to find this movie to watch. 3y
freeatlast1137 @Texreader I'm glad to hear that, I always wanted someone to compare the two based on book accuracy and figured I could at least attempt it. And it's a cute movie, definitely a romcom though. It's on netflix, I think. 3y

Another time, another place I may have liked this book. But I can't finish it. This book is written as a series of communications such as email, letters, and cards about the life of Rosie. I purchased this book because I love the movie (movie review comparison coming after another viewing of the movie). But the book fails to develop any characters into someone worth fighting for (or in the matter: to keep reading). On to the next book...

1. Out of the books I've just read from my shelf, Archer from "The Reader".
2. When a character in a book repeats themselves a thousand times- Maze Runner, he couldn't remember anything, we knew by the tenth time. I have a soft spot for the broken and beaten books so many come messed up, torn, or written in into my house.
3. 1984 by George Orwell. Unfortunately that is not possible in this life.

Life is funny isn‘t it? Just when you think you‘ve got it all figured out, just when you finally begin to plan something, get excited about something, and feel like you know what direction you‘re heading in, the paths change, the signs change, the wind blows the other way, north is suddenly south, and east is west, and you‘re lost. It is so easy to lose your way, to lose direction.

O my gosh! I loved this book so much. It felt so real and the humour in the book is awesome. The writing style of the book is quite unique and I loved it. I'd totally recommend it someone who needs a nice, light, funny weekend read.

I love this book! I‘m sure I‘ll be reading it again someday. The lady protagonist is strong, feisty and witty, and hers is one of the best modern-day un-sappy love stories I‘ve come to know so far, told in an unusual narrative and form. Five stars, two thumbs up, and all that—recommended read for all “cynical romantics”. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #loverosie #ceceliaahern

“Magandang tanghali” means “good afternoon”, which I think is an awkward way to greet someone with in Tagalog on a postcard/letter. I would‘ve gone with “mabuhay!”, which means to say “live!”, as it‘s our more common welcome greeting to our visitors in the Philippines. Just sharing. 🇵🇭🙂 And to hardcore bibliophiles out there—I did NOT draw a red circle on my book, I just edited the photo. #mabuhay #ceceliaahern #loverosie #rosiedunn

Josh takes chances; he‘s braver than I am. He always takes that extra step when he nos he shouldn‘t. He does it anyway and he learns. I think we adults have a to learn from that. Perhaps not to be so afraid and oversensible about reaching for goals. #loverosie #rosiedunne #ceceliaahern

If I could just erase the image of his lips kissing someone else‘s every time he talks to me. Every time he touches me my skin crawls and I feel so much hate for him it‘s unnerving. It‘s hard for my wounds to be healed by the very same man who put them there. #loverosie #ceceliaahern #rosiedunne

Your goddaughter says she misses you very much, and she sends lots of drool and sloppy kisses your way. I think I could make out those words out of the screaming and wailing bellowing out of her tiny little mouth. She is the tiniest and most fragile little thing I have ever seen, sometimes I‘m afraid to hold her but then she opens her mouth and all hell breaks loose. The doctor says she‘s colicky. All I know is she doesn‘t stop screaming. #momlife

Had a great day with my best friend who's in town for a while, and she brought this lovely bookmark as a gift! She's studying medicine in the U.S. and although we're always in touch, I've missed spending time with her. It was nice to kick back, take silly photos, and watch Robin Williams's Jumanji while digging into paneer biryani. The tagged book is a mutual favorite from our buddy reads in college.

wanderinglynn How fun! Glad you had a great weekend with your friend. 😀 5y
batsy Good times! And fun pics 😁 Paneer biryani... Don't think I've had that before but sounds so yum. Anything with paneer is YUM 5y

rohit-sawant Thanks, @batsy! And yes to everything paneer! 🙌🏻 It made the biryani so much more scrumptious. I wish I'd taken a picture. Maybe I should order it again soon just for, um, documenting purposes... 5y
rohit-sawant @scripturient It was great! And mattar (although spelled that way, it's pronounced 'mutter' 😆) paneer is delicious! The one we ordered had the zing of a chicken biryani with cubes of paneer swapped in for the meat. 😋 5y
rohit-sawant @MinDea It's such a delight, isn't it? Especially glad since it's unlikely she'll be visiting again anytime soon & I'm in the process of applying to a film school in Canada (🤞🏼), so it might be a while before we meet up. We're hoping to squeeze in a viewing of Infinity War before she leaves! 5y
rohit-sawant @erzascarletbookgasm Can't wait to use the bookmark! Hope you try paneer biryani sometime, it's fab! 5y

Rosie Dunne y Alex Stewart, amigos desde la infancia, siguen siendo inseparables a través de los años. Necesitan compartir tanto los momentos importantes como los cotidianos, y se intercambian cartas, postales y correos electrónicos. Sus vidas han tomado rumbos muy distintos: Alex estudia medicina en Boston mientras Rosie, en Dublín, se esfuerza por sacar adelante a su bebé, fruto de una loca noche de pasión. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

No hay muchas cosas seguras en la vida, pero lo que sí sé es que tienes que apechugar con las consecuencias de tus actos. Que en ocasiones hay que seguir adelante cueste lo que cueste."
