Finally got around to reading The Lovely Bones and sooo glad I did - I was fighting back the tears for the first 50 or so pages and got swept away by the rest. I think I gobbled it in about 2 days - I just couldn't put it down.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

I love Cecilia Ahern as well! I thought they did a great job when they turned P.S i love you into a movie (although i wouldn't have chosen Hilary Swank!)
Her and Marian Keys are the only two authors that i have read all their books. And i don't get much time to read.

So glad you got around to reading The Lovely Bones .. like ellecee it is one of my all time fave books ..I have read it 3 times I just love it.

My other all time fave is Jodi Picoult .. she is just awesome once you start reading her you cant put her down.. i have all of her books and I have just bought her latest one Change of Heart which I havent read yet. She writes so acurately as she actually physically researches her information. For Plain Truth she actually went to live on an Amish Farm with the Amish people for a week and this latest book she actually spent time in jail and in the execution chamber. I cant recomment her enough. My most fave books of hers so far are Plain Truth and The Pact but they are all great :)

I have a question about P.S I love You.

Is the book about two teenagers who fall in love and the boy dies?

When I was younger I used to read Sweet Dreams novels.

One of the books I read was called P.S I love you. The P was for Paul and the S for his last name.

no this movie is about a girl and a guy who get married at a young age that love each other a lot and he dies and for the next few months he had prepared letters to send to her to help her through his death and at the end of each letter he would sign it p.s i love you. its a really sad movie with some really funny light hearted moments. i love it. I got it on dvd when i went away and plan to watch it again. but the book is better goes into more detail. But the books always better right?
