I usually don't read stories about cancer because it is too real and scary but I'm glad I've started this book because The Fall In Love Checklist is a story about friendship, personal growth, self love and yes unfortunately about cancer too.
As soon as Dany wakes up after a double mastectomy she is dumped by her fiancé so she has to find a new place where to live and she meets Jack. Unfortunately it turns out that Dany still has cancer and has to do some chemo. So she begins a fight against the
Jack is swoony, but the breakout star here is Dany, who I absolutely fell in love with as she was falling in love with herself. Her character is a joy to read, and I laughed and cried right al ...more
Here’s the worst offense committed by this author—instead of digging in and owning her characters, author Sarah Ready attempts to use cheap dialogue gimmicks to carry the weight of their individuality. This taints every page of what may have otherwise been at least a med ...more

This book hit me right in my heart. I didn’t really expect to love it as much as I did. The cancer story hit to close to home and I found the characters a bit bland at the start. But reading on I couldn’t help falling for “the girls” and tears were spilled nearing the end. If you’re looking for a story that has the power to really move you then this is the one for you.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

This is a story about Dany. Dany has always been afraid to be herself, she put herself into a mold of what everyone around her wanted her to be. Then her life drastically changed, and she realized she wanted more out of life.
