( found this book on Naomi’s Reading Palace Blog a couple of month ago, she loved it, and I just got around to reading it. I ended up being really pleased that I read it, because it’s a good romance with a different sort of fantasy element than I usually read about. And, it’s a standalone!

Cassidy is seventeen going on eighteen, and is spending the summer at her deceased parents home in Los Angeles, by herself. She knows that she is finally due to leave this world shortly after he

Every once in a while I find a book that's not well known, but have luckily stumbled upon. I found it on Amazon and the cover really drew me in. Seven Weeks to Forever is just that kind of book. It's like a rare jewel that has been hidden in a box diamonds.

I found myself glued to the pages and loving the world that Jennifer has created. Cassidy's perspective was very enjoyable, but I have to say that my favorite characters ended being Riley and Noah. I just loved those guys. This was a wonder

As I finished reading this book yesterday I was faced with a major panic how on earth was I going to get across to my readers all that makes this book so good. It is a love story which is easy enough to convey but it also deals with the after life and the consequences of our actions, and this is what I need to tell you about today.

Seven Weeks to Forever is first of all a gorgeous looking book, I was lucky enough to receive an actual physical copy, the cover was gorgeous and I know it sounds daft

I liked this little livre, a really cute little romantic read, and a touch of supernatural...! Cassidy will die in seven weeks, and she is aware of this because she is a second timer. Her first life was as Anna Merrick, a young starlet whose life was cut short because of a cosmic accident; her love David was never to meet her and hurt her. He was a second timer that should have never met her, wrecked her life. Noah is her 'advisor' in the Life after, who gives her all this information and sends ...more

Seven weeks to forever by Jennifer farwell
The blurb
Cassidy Jordan knows she'll die a few weeks after her eighteenth birthday, and she can't wait. This is her second time here, and she knows what's waiting for her in The Life-After — the place most mistakenly call "the afterlife." Getting back there is supposed to be easy: she just has to find nineteen-year-old Riley Davis and help him get his life on track. But doing that isn't easy at all. By the time Cassidy finds Riley, she has only seven w

4.5 Stars

I grabbed Seven Weeks to Forever when it was on sale because I loved the cover and the description had me hooked! What would I do if I knew I was going to die and had a chance to help someone before I left? I would think that I would help, but who knows what could happen! So of course I had to read it, to see what Cassidy had to do. It was such a beautiful read, and I was swept away with the fantastic writing and the story that Jennifer Farwell cr

Seven Weeks To Forever was not what I expected. I don’t know why I thought that it wasn’t going to be that great when I started. I enjoyed it more than I thought I was going to. This story is about life and the second chances that are rarely given to us.

I instantly fell in love with Riley’s and Cassidy’s witty banter and serious conversations. Everything was beautiful and easy to understand—it was a light read that I enjoyed a lot. I

Words cannot describe how much I loved this book! I realize that the subject matter is one in which many people may have a difficult time being interested in, however, this book was so well written I truly feel like no matter what your personal beliefs, in some way, shape, or form you can relate to it. Cassidy Jordan was formerly a part of The Before, where she lived her life as Anna Merrick. A love with a man named David, where his actions interfered with her fate, led to her death at the age o ...more

I found this a very enjoyable book, with some quite interesting theories. However, I cannot completely suspend my disbelief to say that it could actually happen, because conceivably there must be so many of these second-timers floating around our world if it could. I think it would be hard to sustain a secrecy of such magnitude if there were so many of them.

I did for a while think that Riley must actually be David, there were suggestions of this, and I assume they were planted to make me think t

One of the best books I have read on Wattpad.
It's easy to fall in love with the characters. Cassidy and Riley have some adorable moments that make me want to fangirl. Yet, in the first meeting with Riley I hated him as much as Cassidy did. Eventually though, it's easy to fall in love with him. The way I felt the exact same emotions as Cassidy towards Riley shows how much I connected with our female lead, the second timer.

The Review

Seven Weeks to Forever by Jennifer Farwell follows Cassidy, a newly high-school graduate spending the summer in LA before going to college at Harvard in the fall. Well, at least that’s what her Aunt & Uncle think she’s doing. In reality, Cassidy is a second-timer sent back to “The Before” in order to help someone so that she can return to “T

This was a different take on the afterlife or as the story calls if life-after.
Cassidy is on her second life (second-timer) to redeem a mistake made when she was Anna. She had fallen in love with a second timer who broke the rules to be with her, this caused her to die before her time. Now why she has to make up for this is explained but I still didn't understand why until the end.
She has always known she would be orphaned at 6 and that she will die a few weeks after turning 18. But before that

Cassidy is living her second-life on earth and she is well prepared for death the second time around , but in order to go as it wasn't supposed to be her time the first time around she must complete one task. Her task is to help Riley Davis to re-open his heart, rediscover love and move on with his life as like Cassidy did when she was Anna - she feel in love with a second-timer named David and it hurt her when he died so much she died herself. Riley's ex-girlfriend Amanda was a second-timer an ...more

Farwell has produced a beautiful novel with Seven Weeks to Forever. The storyline is really different from your typical Romance novel, where two characters fall in love, but for them to achieve a happy ending, they will, in turn, no longer be together. Farwell’s characters are really likeable and very well developed throughout the novel. It is easy for the reader to connect to them and become gripped to their story.

I love all the twists and turns that Farwell offers up throughout the story to ke

I easily got lost in the story of Anna, an 18 year old girl who died but was sent back to life ("The Before) as Cassidy to help a boy in order to be allowed in the Life After (what we call the after-life). When the two fall in love, Cassidy has to decide if she really wants to go to the Life After if it means leaving Riley alone in The Before.

I find theories about what happens after we leave this world fascinating and so I absolutely loved the concept of this book and thought the author did a g

"Just listen to your heart instead of your fear."

This is the story of Cassidy. Her first life ended before it was meant to so she's sent back with a job to complete. She has to succeed because that's her ticket to the Life-After, and she even knows the exact date that she'll return to the happy glow of that life. The catch? She has to help Riley overcome an emotional obstacle, and she wasn't expecting that to involve dating him.

I really liked this book overall. I found the writing (& editing

This is a great book. After I finished reading this book, I was in a book hangover. I haven't read a book in a long time that had that effect on me. I laughed and cried in this book. My heart was aching for Cassidy because of the decisions that she had to make in her life. She has to save another person for her to be free of her life, the kicker is, she only has 7 weeks to accomplish this.

I read this book quickly. I couldn't put it down. I jus

What an amazing book. Cassidy is such an interesting person, not to mention intriguing. Her past, her mission,... From the very first page Jennifer Farwell keeps you captivated. Mentions of "the after life" or anything spiritual like that might scare some people off at first (I know I'm always a bit apprehensive), but Seven Weeks To Forever is definitely a story everyone could enjoy. Personally, the book had next t

This was a fascinating read; I didn't expect to love it as much as I did. The concept felt very real to me, that just maybe there IS a before life and a life-after and I wonder what life I'm in? Am I a second timer or is anyone I know in my life? I like Cassidy a lot and I thought the author made her very real. The book is well-written and a real page turner. I think the book will do very well and become popular, and it would be a good book club discussion book! I recommend this book, and will l ...more

I didn't expect to like this book that much, but I seriously called in sick to finish it (I've never feigned illness to miss work in 13 years of working full time!). I liked Jennifer Farwell's first novel (Rock Star's Girl) a lot and decided I should finally give this one a chance since it was getting great reviews too. The characters were likeable. It was thought provoking (the life after stuff really made me think about life and what if it really is just a way to get to the important part - th ...more

The author does such a great job of capturing first love (which can be hard enough to navigate even when there isn't a time limit and such high stakes). I laughed and cried and couldn't wait to find out how what would happen between Cassidy and Riley. This book reminds you that often times in love and life you have to make choices and sacrifices, but there isn't much that is more powerful than first love. It's such an interesting premise and was written so incredibly well, I could totally see it ...more

How is going to be starting over with a new family & getting asecond chance.

DO you believe in Love? After reading this I definitely do! I have to say this has been one of the best books I have read in a while. I believe in angels and that they are everywhere. Now whether people can come back as one but in human form, i'm not sure; but this was a feel good story all the way to the last page. It's not often I can finish a book with a smile on my face, but this one led to sweet dreams after finishing! I highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a feel good re ...more

I started reading yesterday, and I planned to just read for a half hour or so…. Well, that didn't happen. I was unable to put this book down until I finished it…. And even then, as I got to the last page I wished it was longer. I really loved this book! There were so many components to the story…. Love (past and present), Life, and The Life After….. and they all flowed perfectly to make for a wonderful book. I loved the characters, especially Noah and Aunt Sarah!

Cassidy has a short time to live and find what she is to do in her life before her second chance is up. Running into a guy named Riley wasn't part of the plan. Now he has to be. She is suppose to help him?!? But with what? Her advisor isn't no help. And Riley doesn't seem to want to open up anytime soon... Will she be able to help him or will she fail?

I really enjoyed this book!

When I began to read this story I wasn't sure what to expect. I was happily surprised that it was an easy book to get into. I liked the idea of how this book portrays death and the afterlife or rather the life after. It was an easy read, I finished it in one day, one sitting! I look forward to reading more from this author.
