Thanks hippolein! Got the book over a month ago, I've just been way too busy to journal it... Sorry.

I'm thinking of going to see the movie soon, am really looking forward to reading the book. But, as usual, now it'll go to my bookshelf for unknown period of time...

9 out of 10

Oh dear! I went to see the movie in the end of December and totally loved it. So, I just had pick this book from the shelf when I came home.

I really recommend this book - and the movie (Anne Hathaway is amazing as Emma). The story is funny but also tells the story of two people living their lives as friends. I don't want to spoil anything, just read it. :)

This was unputdownable. And funny and touching, too. That's all I'm saying so as to not give anything away. Thanks for making me pick it up from the meet-up, bookwormess!

I did like it, but I also thought it to be a bit too long. The kind of book that doesn't seem to end, and where you know the ending can only be one of two things. That being said, the basic structure of the book (it tells about the protagonists' life on the same day on many consecutive years) worked really well and it keeps surprising the reader.

I found the book by coincidence from a café in Turku, Finland, and I took it with me to Sweden. I was so happy to find the book. I've read a few chapters so far and it seems entertaining. I'll release it somewhere when I'm done and let you fellow bookcrossers know.
