Fun, sweet, with unexpected poignancy, makes this a perfect holiday read. It‘s unashamedly romantic and has ‘One Day‘ vibes with its time structure and a plot that would make a perfect Richard Curtis movie. It‘s a love-at-first-sight gets side-tracked story, and it‘s 10yrs until the inevitable HEA. I also enjoyed the friendships portrayed. Characters grow, and the reality of the ups and downs of long-term friendships, are captured beautifully. 💕

- I completely forgot about a book cub that had moved to one week earlier than usual! So I have to read the Josie Silver for that by Wednesday.... a light and fluffy one for a change to our usual fare!
- After that I‘ll carry on with the Ocean Vuong which I‘m loving...
- On Audio I want to start the John Boyne, and then maybe get to a December Bookclub pick (Erotic stories)... but with my Dad in town... 🤷‍♀️

A silly rom com that reminded me of a Hallmark movie. A little cheesy, a lot sappy, but a fun view into a love at first sight will they or won‘t they relationship. Utterly predictable, but I still enjoyed it as I was in the mood for something light and fluffy. Read it for book club and most people did not like it. #catsoflitsy #kittensoflitsy #klausthekitten

This book was a very cute and adorable book. Filled with aww inspired moments and feel good thoughts. A book that makes you feel like love exists after all. The ending was very typical, but it's a romance novel so you know that's what is going to happen. Good book 5/5 stars

I thought this was going to be a piece of fluff and I ended up crying several times. This is about missed chances and friendship and grief and impossible positions with impossible decisions and it hit me in the feels so hard. I stayed up way too late and that with the crying have left my eyes super puffy. That‘s the best endorsement for a book in my opinion. Puffy eyes. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼

I wanted to read this book for a long time probably over a year and finally got it out of the library. It was just as good as I was hoping for maybe better. The love story was amazing and the twists and turns along the way were definitely not predictable. Can‘t wait to read the next one by this author!

I‘ve had a tough couple of weeks and the books I was reading just weren‘t holding my attention. So I looked in my kindle back catalogue and picked this because I knew my sister was also reading it.
I wasn‘t sure in the first half whether I was going to like it, I thought Jack was a bit of a nob quite a lot at the start but I found myself becoming invested in all their lives and their ups and downs as we followed them over the years.
3.5/5

⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 3.5 Stars

Not quite a 4 star read, but definitely not a 3 star. This left me wanting more on all accounts. It was nearly perfect in many ways, but was lacking at the same time - especially with not having more with the moments between Jack and Laurie. I felt it dragged just a bit and in turn had me putting the book down more than usual. I wasn‘t invested until halfway. I could see this being perfect as a movie. 🎥

wanderinglynn You can try to sell them, but in my experience, unless it‘s a rare or unusual copy, you‘re not going to get anything for them. Donating them, you can at least get a tax receipt. 4mo

Laurie, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, catches a glimpse of a gorgeous stranger. He saw her too but the bus drives away before anything else happens. Love at first sight.
Haven‘t read but it sounds like a lovely rom-com that I‘d happily watch on Hallmark channel. Reese Witherspoon chose it for her December 2018 bookclub. Maybe I‘ll get to it when I‘m in a mood for a contemporary romance read. 😊

This was a quick, fun read that explores the idea of love at first sight. The guy and girl go through quite a bit and prove that although love at first sight can be real, it takes more than that to ultimately be together. The characters were frustrating at times, but overall I enjoyed their journey. #Reesesbookclub #hellosunshine #Readingwomenchallenge2019 -A romance or love story. #romcom #contemporaryromance

This was a fantastic read! I really connected with all of the characters. The plot was believable and the author has an amazing way of making you feel what the characters are feeling every step of the way.

At some points, I was upset over the decisions they made, but they were always authentic to the character's nature and made sense from their perspective. I read this book in one long binge session, and a quick final sprint.

🤭👀 Almost done with this book...recomendable!! ❣️ ‘Tis a love story( that becomes like a hidden love triangle) but also a story of friendship and growth and the many twists and turns of life...I though the concept of “love at first sight” we were introduced at the beginning was a little dramatic but overall I‘ve really come to enjoy Laurie‘s character and I‘m still on the fence about Jack .-.

I wanted to like this more than I did, but the main characters are deeply frustrating and determined to be unhappy for most of the book. I get that romance requires a few obstacles but for 95% of the book, the One True Pairing just moon at one another while leaving a trail of broken hearts in their wake. It got to the point where I didn't want either of them to get a happily ever after with one another or anyone else.

You've been warned! I can't talk about this book without spoilers. I have complicated feelings about this book. Laurie is too good for Jack. But I couldn't help the warm and fuzzies I got at their perfect rom-com ending. I was thoroughly engaged in Laurie's journey, not so much in Jack's and I did really want to see how this book would end. I mean, I knew how it would end, but I was kinda hoping for a not-so-predictible ending.

Mehso-so

This one reminded me way too much of One Day. In both, 2 peoples‘ lives continue to cross paths after a memorable encounter. The thing that drives me nuts about the stories is that everyone else ends up being an obstacle for the pair to get together. It makes huge life decisions seem inconsequential & reduces them to being a speed bump in someone else‘s story. Regardless, it‘s very readable and I love the main friendship between Sarah and Laurie.
