the two of us
Falling in love is the easy part. What matters most is what happens next...

Fisher and Ivy have been an item for a whole nineteen days. And they just know they are meant to be together. The fact that they know little else about each other is a minor detail. Over the course of twelve months, in which their lives will change forever, Fisher and Ivy discover that falling in love is one thing, but staying there is an entirely different story.

The Two of Us is a charming, honest and heart-breaking novel about life, love, and the importance of taking neither one for granted.


Hey! Here's my review.

This is not a fluffy chick lit romance, it is much deeper and quite moving. It is told from Fisher's point of view, centered around his whirlwind romance with Ivy and through their first year together. Their highs and lows had me laughing and crying. From giggles at silly one liners, to body wracking sobs. The writing style is honest and simple, not overly descriptive or emotional. The characters are not perfect, but I found them likable.

We also meet Fisher's best friend, who has Huntington's disease. I haven't come across Huntington's disease in a novel before and I gained a greater insight into what it would be like to suffer from or live with someone who has Huntington's disease. It is a debilitating degenerative disease.

I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. 
It is expected to be published 1 February 2015.
