Cecelia Ahern is now become my favorite author. This is my first time read her novel. And it was goood! I loved it so much! Such a beautiful story!
Christine, the female lead, saw a man shoot himself in the head and it changed her life forever. It was the most horryfying moment she’s ever had. It made her not happy with her life, then she thought that she needed to change it before it was too late. She determined to start her life again after ending her marriage. Then, Adam is coming. She meets him on bridge in the middle of the night. Adam is tried to suicide by jumping from HalfPenny Bridge but Christine stops him immediately and promises him that she can help him to make him love his life again before his birthday which is just 2 weeks more. Christine is not really sure that she will succeed, she is fearful of what might happen if she doesn’t succeed? Adam is also not quite sure she will be succeed. Can Christine helps Adam to enjoy his life again? Or may be they are destined for more?

How To Fall in Love are beautiful, unique, touching, and a heart-warming story. This book has a great structure of plot and subplots, along with some very thought-provoking words and events, this book was a highly enjoyable, captivating, and lovable read for me. I loved the main characters, Christine and Adam straight from the beginning. What I liked was they both are a bit broken. The book is about a period of two weeks and when you read it, you realised that life can change during a short time. This book will makes you think about your own life. I’m happy this book has such a good ending.


“Where would be without tomorrows? What we’d have instead would be todays. And if that was the case, with you, I’d hope for the longest days for today I’d fill today with you, doing everything I’ve ever loved. I’d laugh, I’d talk, I’d listen and learn, I’d love, I’d love, I’d love. I’d make every day today and spend them all with you, and I’d never worry about tomorrow, when I wouldn’t be with you. And when that dreaded tomorrow comes for us, please know that I didn’t want to leave you, or be left behind, that every single moment spent with you were the best times in my life.
