Book of the Month: March

21 Apr 2017

A little bit behind on this post, but please bare with me, graduation is around the corner and things are just completely hectic. But even in that situation surprisingly I managed to finish a book for the month of March, so even though I am doing terrible in updating the blog, I am still on track with the Book of the Month project :D

This book has been such a delight to read. It is from one of my most favorite authors, the one and only, Cecelia Ahern. I've set a goal to myself that I needed to read all of the books from her that I could possibly get my hands onto. So far I've read "How to Fall in Love", "The Book of Tomorrow" and "If You Could See Me Now", and of course "Thanks for the Memories". I particularly love Ahern's books because although they do have some type of romanticism (even though I detest romantic books) it is not too cheesy and at the end the main character always stays strong. So far with the books I've read from her, the female character does not need a man to succeed, she can find success on her own, but that male figure is there to support her, but regardless, she has the power to overcome whatever she is going through.

I like this, I really do. I never was the type of person who liked the idea of a damsel in distress that needs to be saved by prince charming. Gross, what are we? weak and incapable beings? It does not matter if we are women or men, we are humans. We might have some biological differences but still, we all bleed red don't we? Talking about blood here it is funny because in this book, blood is a big part of the story. And no, it does not include vampires.

The plot goes about a woman that had a miscarriage by falling down the stairs (right at the beginning of the book, what a way to start a story right?) and so she needs a blood transfusion because she was losing a lot of blood. After she receives this blood, she starts seeing things from another life, as if she is another person. Turns out that the person that donated the blood and eventually got into the main character's body, this is the guy's life that Joyce sees it. So it's like as if she got a part of his life into her and he also has a sensation that somehow they are attached (which of course, it's about the blood). But they do not know this yet. So the entire story is them crossing paths and losing each other, but then they try to find each other again. Sounds like a hustle but trust me, it is a lot of fun to read this adventurous journey. If you decide to give this book a read, let me know what you though of it!
