When teenage movie star Graham Larkin accidentally sends small town girl Ellie O'Neill an email about his pet pig, the two seventeen-year-olds strike up a witty and unforgettable correspondence, discussing everything under the sun, except for their names or backgrounds.

Then Graham finds out that Ellie's Maine hometown is the perfect location for his latest film, and he decides to take their relationship from online to in-person. But can a star as famous as Graham really start a relationship with an ordinary girl like Ellie? And why does Ellie want to avoid the media's spotlight at all costs?

Hannah | 115 comments Did you like Love, Rosie? I have it and want to read it but i didnt know how full of emails and stuff it would be...

I am not a fan of insta-love either but i really enjoyed The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith . Thats the only other book by her ive read. I liked this one more though :)

i like Love, Rosie but halfway through you will just get tired of the story because you know that they will end up together and the author just made it super lenghty.

Yeah I guess that's true. I just noticed that it's a common theme in her books.


message 44: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 115 comments Eh, i hate books that feel like they are drawing it out to long.. I plan to read it in august-september for a challenge, hope i can get through it quickly.


message 45: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 115 comments Ive only read 2 of her books so guess i havent noticed the pattern lol. But if its in all of them id say maybe it is time for her to try something new.. Maybe she she didnt have a good father either and doesnt know how to write anything else? .. Just a guess lol

I like how we're now analyzing her hahaha I really hope you can get through Love Rosie, halfway I just want to throw it away.


message 47: by Hannah (new)

Hannah | 115 comments Lol yeah, guess we kind of got a little off topic XD. i hope so too, the movie trailer is what made me want to read it so i can watch the movie after reading it.. I bought it without noticing the email parts and ive never cared for books told through text, email, letters or poetry..
