Love, Rosie by Cecelia Ahern

Book 37/30.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I can’t believe I’ve wanted to read this ever since I shelved it on my Goodreads TBR shelf on January 23, 2017 because yikes this was so fucking mediocre 🥴🥴🥴

The final sentence of this book’s synopsis reads – But destiny is a funny thing, and in this novel of several missed opportunities, Rosie and Alex learn that fate isn’t done with them quite yet. – and it succinctly describes my biggest problem with this book. It got to a point the several missed opportunities started to feel nonsensically contrived and it was at that point the novel became a tedious read. There is a movie version of this starring Lily Collins and Sam Claflin as Rosie and Alex, and I can put money on the table this is one of those rare instances the movie is better than the book. Clocking in at 431 pages, this book is about 100 pages too long as a story which could and should have been wrapped up at 300 pages just kept going and going and going.

Also, it’s KNOW not NO. That got really fucking irritating really fucking quickly.
