This book was...okay. It wasn't bad, it did make me laugh and giggle a bunch which saved this book for me! Although, there was a major downfall for me:
The first 100 pages were really good!
The next 100 pages were slowing down and getting draggy
The next 219 pages went at a frustrating snails pace until FINALLY the last page had what the whole book was leading up to.
I am disappointed by Love, Rosie because it could've been SO MUCH better if it wasn't so slow and draggy. At the end I didn't like Al

OMG, how to rate this book?

How can we be able to love a book so much but at the same time completely hate it? It was just so frustrating... I know, I know, I'm a sucker for HEAs and it makes me insane when I don't get them or when it takes too long for the main characters to achieve it. And this is definitely the case here. Be sure you are in a very patient mood before starting this read because you'll get many and many impediments on that HEA's.

Don't get me wrong, I really adored this book a

Book 25/100 for 2015

This was such a cute book! Although this was a pretty long book for a contemporary, it covered the lives of Rosie and Alex from ages 5 to 50 and I remained interested in their story the whole time. I loved these two characters but at the same time I wanted to smack them over the head several times for being so stupid.
As for the writing style, it is written in the forms of letters, emails, chat rooms (hahaha who even uses those even more?) and instant messages. This took me a

El libro me gustó muchísimo y el final me sacó lágrimas de felicidad, PEEEERO le quité una estrellita porque la mayor parte del tiempo me la pasé MUY frustrada con los personajes, ¡fue demasiado tiempo, DEMASIADO!

Desde hace tiempo que quería leer este libro porque supe que habría película y que los protagonistas serían Lily Collins & Sam Claflin pero lo pospuse mucho tiempo, en fin, hoy (técnicamente son las 2:00 am así que creo fue ayer...) lo empecé y bueno, horas después lo acabé y así estoy ahora mismo:

WHAT A BEAUTIFUL BOOK I AM SO EMOTIONAL RIGHT NOW

basically, this book was an absolute roller coaster ride filled with extreme frustration and a severe case of toying with my emotions, but I am very much pleased with the ending of this book.

The writing style and the way that this book was organised and made up completely of letters, emails, instant messages etc was brilliant. I must admit it took a while to get used to but when you do it works so well and makes the story so much more interesting

Once again it appears I’m the solo gal who didn’t absolutely fall in love with this book. Shaddup and let me ‘splain myself.

But first, let’s cover the synopsis for those who aren’t familiar with the story (which could easily be the case since this book has been published under THREE different titles).

I have a week spot for best friends turn lovers books and after a friend recommended me this one, I was very curious to read it. I wanted something nice and easy, to just spend a weekend in bed reading.
This was my first book from Cecelia Ahern and after hearing so many amazing things about her, I had to crack the ice and see for myself.

Meet Rosie and Alex, 2 best friends that share with us their funny and sad moments. Why share? Because the book is made of letters, emails, notes and postcards!

"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. And that’s with following all the signposts”

Rosie e Alex desde muito jovens que se amam profunda e verdadeiramente!
Porém, em vez de juntos e felizes, encontram-se a milhas um do outro, trocando cartas e emails.

Porque razão Alex e Rosie terão soterrado esse seu belo sentimento partilhado, ao invés de o soltarem e explorarem, como seria lógico e expectável?!

Comecemos por dissertar um pouco sobre o assunto:

DNF @ 55%.

Nope. Nope. Nope. Nope.

This book started out really promising. I liked the letters and emails thing, it was something I have never read before. But my God, does Cecelia Ahern know how to drag a story out. And then things kept separating Alex and Rosie and it just got really tedious. I don't care. I don't fricking care anymore!!! They were both unlikeable in my opinion. I didn't ship them together once they got to about 23.

The writing was actually ok

I was as frustrated by this book as I was addicted to it. Rosie and Alex were always in love with each other but never at the right place at the right time, both emotionally and physically. And neither would admit their feelings. I tore through the pages muttering under my breath that if the author did not make things right EVENTUALLY, I would lose it. I won't give anything away.

I thought it was adorable that Rosie's daughter Katie had a relationship with a boy named Toby that completed mirrored

LOVE, ROSIE made me feel nostalgic about the future.

i generally don't read books that follow the characters into their adult life, but this novel really changed my perspective on that. for the majority of the book, rosie is in her twenties and thirties and raising a child. because the pacing is fast, it made me realize how time moves so quickly. before you know it, years have gone by and everything has changed, but at the same time, nothing's changed. i dunno, it made me feel thoughtful abo

A book that you start with a smile and end with a smile. You hang upon every word and wait with impatience for the end. Until its the end and you wish it'll continue because you don't want to let go of the characters you've come to know and understand, most of all to love. Rosie Dunne is a wonderful woman, she has dreams even though she keeps facing the treacherous twists and turns of life. And Alex Stewart who succeeds to follow his dreams but keeps making the stupidest mistakes when it comes t ...more

No había leído antes nada de Cecila Ahern y decidí empezar con este cuando ví que este libro va aser llevado al cine.

Que historia tan hermosa!!!!!!! Me encantó y debo admitir que sufrí como una condenada con los desencuentros de Rosie y Alex, en serio estos dos no podían estar más desincronizados!!!! La historia es básicamente la vida de Rosie y Alex desde los 5 años hasta los 50 y mi corazón romántico espera que sigan así durante muchos años más. La forma de narrar la historia mediante cartas,

I loved PS I Love You, so I thought I'd give another Ahern book a go. I wasn't to fazed by the fact the story of Where Rainbows End is completely written as a correspondence, mostly between the two main characters, family and friends. I had read The Boy Next Door by Meg Cabot which was written in a similar style and stilled loved the story.

The gist of Where Rainbows End is have you ever had someone, a boy or girl, who you had been friends with for long period of time and even though it seemed th

I've been thinking about this book ever since I read Me Before You (I blame Sam Claflin) and I think I've finally settled on 4 stars.

I have decided that I am actually going to leave this unrated. I feel like a 3 star rating does not do it justice, my reasons for disliking the book do not permit me to give it a 4/5 star and I didn't hate it enough for a 1/2 star.

Proper review may or may not come. ^^

This is one of those romantic novels that is not at all cheesy and this is why I liked this book. It teaches you so many things about love such as it should not be rushed and that two people can stay in love with each other despite distance and living different lives.

"I've learned that home isn't a place, it's a feeling."

This is one of those rare instances where the movie is better than the book. I don’t mean to be rude, but this is just a bunch of clusterfucked notes and emails from two people who are too scared to tell what they feel for each other, so they ended up losing decades of their lives.
Ready Player One movie adaptation is a shitfest.
The Lightning Thief movie adaptation was butchered.
Love, Rosie movie adaptation turned out to be a lot better

Para todos aquellos que no lo leyeron ni se gasten y vean la pelicula es de esos casos raros donde en realidad la pelicula es mucho mejor que el libro. Las actuaciones son geniales, el soundtrack, la ambientaciòn, todo ES GENIAL. Ademàs es muy divertida y optimista, los personajes se toman todo con humor en cambio en el libro parecía una telenovela mexicana.
