Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

20 Jun

After a horrible accident, Joyce Conway is trying to put her life back together.


Her life and her marriage are in pieces, but Joyce tries to get back to living a normal life, despite advice from others. But something is stopping her. 


She keeps having dreams of a beautiful blond haired girl, of places she has never been. She knows things that she shouldn’t about art, about architecture. She sees a beautiful woman in her dreams.


Joyce sees and knows things she should not know. And it all started after her accident. Wanting to get to the bottom of things, to discover the reason for her newfound knowledge, Joyce tracks down her blood donor…


Justin Hitchcock is a lonely man.


He hasn’t dated since his marriage broke up. Instead, he contends himself with touring universities, talking about art, about the only thing he has passion for in life. He knows he’s lonely, knows that he needs to heal.


What he doesn’t know is that his life is about to change.


When a beautiful woman convinces Justin to give blood for the universities blood drive, Justin has no idea that giving away a few drops of his blood will change his life forever. He has no idea that by giving something from his heart, he may receive the very things he needs to heal it…


I have been a long time fan of Cecelia Ahern since her novel P.S. I Love You. I also never miss an episode of her hit show, Samantha Who. Even so, I wondered how good her new novel would be; no one can be so consistently funny, it just doesn’t happened.


Well, with Thanks for the Memories, the impossible has indeed happened! This is a heartwarming, laugh out loud romantic comedy that has everything you could want: laughs, strong characters, excellent writing, wonderful plot twists and a happy ending.


Though the novel requires you to suspend your disbelief for a moment or two, that’s okay because the characters make this story worth it. Joyce’s father, Justin and Justin’s friends are stand out secondary characters made all the more enjoyable because of Justin and Joyce themselves.


They’re such wonderful characters; you’re rooting for them to get together from the very beginning of the novel. It’s rate that I read a novel with such a wonderful cast of characters, but Ahern has created wonderful people that I actually cared about by the time the book was over.


Thanks for the memories is a magical, incredible read that will hook you from the first page and not let go. It’s summer reading at it’s best and an absolute delight. If you read one good book this summer, make sure it’s this one.


You’ll remember it for a long time to come.
