    Two stars lost in translation and last minute insertion of reluctantly patched romance parts So I m giving for three stars just for the idea of creating a diary to tell the people how to enjoy their lives, living it fulfilled, enjoying and feeling each moment, seizing everything they ve experienced Maybe after seeing the cover I keen on reading something soft, swoony and relaxing but what I found out is a heavy dramatic book, with suffocating heavy issues like death, fatal illness, suicide, a Two stars lost in translation and last minute insertion of reluctantly patched romance parts So I m giving for three stars just for the idea of creating a diary to tell the people how to enjoy their lives, living it fulfilled, enjoying and feeling each moment, seizing everything they ve experienced Maybe after seeing the cover I keen on reading something soft, swoony and relaxing but what I found out is a heavy dramatic book, with suffocating heavy issues like death, fatal illness, suicide, alcoholism, dementia I wanted to drop the book and say thanks, I had enough but as you know my stubbornness about not easily give a decision to dnf a book, you may imagine I continue reading but I also made so many frustration uhkhhhh, uhhhh, ooooo sounds At the end we see some romantic parts on the book which made me question them because it s hard to believe only see a woman twice and think you found your soul mate if we don t watch a soap opera or last disaster Netflix rom com movies The hero and heroine s reluctant chemistry and forced romantic attraction is not credible and satisfying for me Maybe the book lost its real meaningful words to help me connect with the characters and love journeys because of the translation Maybe my timing was not right enough to read this book because I craved for some chic lit romance and not so ready to deal with dramatic, heart wrenching issues.So let s talk about the stories and characters There are two stories in this book are told separately Hannah is in love and all set for romantic dinner with his soon to be fianc e She thinks he will propose at that very same night Unfortunately she doesn t get the offer she d dreamt of Her boyfriend leaves her Please don t curse at him or keep your ugly remarks before learn the truth Later Hannah finds out he s suffering from Leukemia and he has only one year left to live I told you not to be judgmental, didn t I So Hannah gives him a diary about some daily suggestions to enjoy simple things of life which gives him pure happiness and positivity he needs for the last days of his life Other story is about Jonathan Grumpy, whining, pessimist young man recently inherits father s publishing company, divorced three years ago but he still feels bitter, resented His daily habit is riding his bike to the park, locking it in the rack then going for a jog But one day, he finds out the diary on his bike The dairy filled in suggestions about how to enjoy your daily life and find happiness from small things It is called A Perfect Year As you can imagine, at the end the stories intercepted but you can also imagine I didn t enjoy the outcome so much It was so predictable and cheesy for me But I still like the idea to keep a journal about daily life s small things bring us real happiness and put a big smile on our faces.Let s say, this is I don t like it but I also didn t hate it kind of book It s not fair for me to right negative things about the book That s not just my cup of Chardonnay That s all Special thanks to NetGalley and Crossing for sharing this Arc Copy in exchange my honest review

    I just LOVED this It had a very Man Called Ove vibe to it It took me a while to warm up to the main characters, but soon I was hooked and couldn t put it down until the end, which I was totally delighted with A funny and warm hearted story about a guy who gets a rare opportunity to see life from a completely new perspective.

    First I ll start with why this wasn t my favorite book Let s just say I m not really into romance type stories I m not saying this was a sweet, kissy story because it wasn t, but I felt the climax of the story didn t ascent very high up the mountain The outcome was predictable but anything less would have been a disappointment So here s the story line A young girl and the man she s in love with are on the verge of an engagement He plans what appears to be a romantic dinner during which First I ll start with why this wasn t my favorite book Let s just say I m not really into romance type stories I m not saying this was a sweet, kissy story because it wasn t, but I felt the climax of the story didn t ascent very high up the mountain The outcome was predictable but anything less would have been a disappointment So here s the story line A young girl and the man she s in love with are on the verge of an engagement He plans what appears to be a romantic dinner during which she thinks he will pop the question only to discover that he is going to stop seeing her The break up has nothing to do with another person, but a recent and a surprise to her health diagnosis of Leukemia in which he has been given less than a year to live The girlfriend soon gives him a diary for the coming year on which she has given daily suggestions for things to enjoy simple things , advice on searching for happiness, overcoming adversity, etc Parallel to this story is a young man who has inherited his father s publishing company much to his misgivings He has been divorced for 3 years, still harbors resentment and has become a bit of a recluse and ritual habit forming individual He rides his bike to the park as he does everyday , locks it in the rack and goes for his normal long daily run When he returns he finds a plastic bag hanging on his bike s handle bars and inside is a daily diary filled with daily suggestions for A Perfect Year Yep has Hallmark movie written all over it Now I ll tell you what I liked about the book I, too, have Leukemia My diagnosis came nearly 4 years ago but at least is a slow growing kind of blood cancer but an incurable cancer nonetheless I have always been a positive person who looks for the good in the darkest of storms and so I have accepted my diagnosis with open arms I absolutely LOVED the idea of a daily diary where you look for enjoyment in the smallest of things I embraced the idea of looking to enrich your life with beauty and smiles and happiness I m enthusiastic about stepping outside one s comfort zone and exploring new things or rising above old fears I won t delve into the story the scenario is easy enough to figure out Suffice it to say that the journey was a short yet enjoyable one I AM happy to say that I m glad I read this towards the end of a year I look forward to purchasing myself a diary or better still a 2020 journal in which I can record the wonderful things I have discovered and or explored I don t want to actually plan out my year day by day that would take away the intrigue of looking for the daily treasure But I do look forward to documenting my discoveries Who knows perhaps I ll include some of my loved ones on the journey with me So I guess, all in all, I m glad I read the story It s probably not one that I would pick up and read again, but it DID give me inspiration and encouragement to enjoy each day we are given on this earth and for THAT I am deeply grateful

    3.5 stars I liked that it was quite unconventional for a chicklit There were quite some heavy topics alcoholism, cancer, suicide, dementia etc and the focus was way less on romance than I expected As I m not big on romance, this was a pleasant surprise However, towards the end, the inevitable romance is rushed in using a sort of montage sequence that really didn t work for me I just couldn t see the two MCs as a convincing couple and even the characters themselves thought it was out of ch 3.5 stars I liked that it was quite unconventional for a chicklit There were quite some heavy topics alcoholism, cancer, suicide, dementia etc and the focus was way less on romance than I expected As I m not big on romance, this was a pleasant surprise However, towards the end, the inevitable romance is rushed in using a sort of montage sequence that really didn t work for me I just couldn t see the two MCs as a convincing couple and even the characters themselves thought it was out of character and insta lovey view spoiler the way that Jonathan just says I m in love with this woman after seeing her twice and not even talking to her, or knowing anything about her That was so ridiculous I thought he was joking Sadly, no hide spoiler I think I would have liked it better if, in the end, view spoiler the best friend ended up with Jonathan Now, her search for romance was rushed in the epilogue where she gets a date with a random guy at the daycare I think I would have preferred it the other way around Friend gets with Jonathan, while Hannah takes a cautious first step toward a new relationship in the epilogue hide spoiler Having said that, the writing was great and there were quite some funny scenes, as well asserious stuff To conclude, it was a balanced, enjoyable read, apart from the ending

    Meeeh I just could NOT get into this one I think perhaps I am too old or too cynical for fluffy romances All of the unlikely, fateful meetingslove at first sighthobos that find free Mustangs with the keys in the ignition Oh waitis that last one not a common plotline I wouldn t know I don t generally read these things But that was, in fact, a feature of this one seriously.It was sweet guys don t get me wrong If you enjoy Hallmark movies or Lifetime movies, you might dig it Un Meeeh I just could NOT get into this one I think perhaps I am too old or too cynical for fluffy romances All of the unlikely, fateful meetingslove at first sighthobos that find free Mustangs with the keys in the ignition Oh waitis that last one not a common plotline I wouldn t know I don t generally read these things But that was, in fact, a feature of this one seriously.It was sweet guys don t get me wrong If you enjoy Hallmark movies or Lifetime movies, you might dig it Unfortunately, those movies make me either gag or laugh hysterically which are both undoubtedly inappropriate reactions to true love, destiny, and all that warm and fuzzy stuff So don t let this heartless ice queen dissuade you from reading this saccharine sweet story of true love If romance is your jam, I d definitely recommend it Meanwhile, I m going to go back to reading about dragons, ghosts, and doors that lead to other worlds 2 stars for me

    This is a delightful book I don t normally read romance, but this came recommended and was full of funny, and sometimes sad, twists and turns We ve all been through times when what can go wrong, will go wrong , and this story is full of those things, right down to the final pages Well done, well translated, a good read.

    The first 50 pages were pretty slow, but after that, you really wanted to see what was going to happen and how the characters were connected It is a sweet story and really puts things into perspective about how we live our lives and how we see things or don t Definitely should be on everyone s TBR list.

    I should start by saying this is a contemporary fiction romance novel and I m not usually a fan of romance I didn t realise it was romance when I picked it up Anyway I rather liked it in the end, although not my favourite read of the year.I found the story a little predictable, I felt like I knew where this was going to lead to but thankfully not exactly how we would get there We had a few interesting little events along the way to the inevitable outcome at least The characters were a littl I should start by saying this is a contemporary fiction romance novel and I m not usually a fan of romance I didn t realise it was romance when I picked it up Anyway I rather liked it in the end, although not my favourite read of the year.I found the story a little predictable, I felt like I knew where this was going to lead to but thankfully not exactly how we would get there We had a few interesting little events along the way to the inevitable outcome at least The characters were a little predictable too, and a little chiched to boot but it was all just about on the acceptable side of tolerance for me.A sweet book, the difficulty with romance books and films is that of course you know the outcome, it s a bloody romance, boy meets girl etc etc That s one of the reasons I don t like the genre not because I am completely heartless it lacks surprise and mystery However I liked the writing style and it was a cosy and easy read albeit sad at times A nice book but nothing I could get really excited about A reasonable 3 5 which is good for a romance from me
