The Book of Tomorrow
"The Book of Tomorrow" was unbelievably good. It was a modern fairytale. It was magical. It was mysterious. It was heartwarming and sad and funny and amazing.
It was one-of-a-kind and spooky and I'm running out of adjectives here, so I'm just going to say that I really, really loved it.
Cecelia Ahern's (still don't know how to pronounce her last name) books are really hard to explain. There's always this touch of magic in her stories, that makes the ordinary fas...more

Personally, I liked The Book of Tomorrow very much. The author Cecelia Ahern did an outstanding job of always keeping the book interesting and unpredictable. The Book of Tomorrow is about a 17-year-old girl named Tamara as she goes through a rough time in her life. Tamara possesses a diary that predicts her future one day in advance, allowing her to know what will happen and change the future if she wishes.
Tamara's rich life is turned upside down and completely around when her father commits su...more

„Дневник на утрешния ден” е заглавие, което веднага грабна вниманието ми. Прозвуча ми мистериозно. Това е книга с лек фантастичен привкус. „Понякога е необходимо да видим утрешния ден, за да разберем днешния”. Какво би направил, ако знаеше какво ще се случи утре? Пред този дилема е изправена и главната героиня Тамара Гудуин, едно разглезено 16 годишно момиче, от богато семейство. Книгата ме завладя още в началните страници. Разказ...more
Cecelia Ahern really knows how to turn a tale.
