The Marble Collector

I started reading Cecelia Ahern novels when I was 11. Starting of with P.s. I Love You and continuing down the line from there. I have almost every single one of her novels in my collection because I absolutely adore this author. The way she writes is brilliant. I was never really into romance novels until I came across her because while some of her books are romance themed, they always have a little something extra that sets them apart from the other hordes of romance novels. It never is just the typical - girl meets guy, girl and guy falls in love, girl and guy lives happily every after. She just has a special flair that turns boring old love stories into something magical. The Marble Collector was a different sort of love story though, one between a daughter and her father. Each chapter of the book shifts from the daughter's point of view to the father's present point of view or his past. The entire story took part in a day which is already something unusual. One day for Sabrina (the daughter) to solve the mystery that is her father because it turns out she doesn't know as much about him as she thought she did. In an odd way I felt like I related a little to her. I'm not in love with the water like Sabrina is but we do share the whole not really communicating thing. I'm not one to constantly share my feelings and thoughts and this book actually made me want to change that a little. My favourite bits were the flashbacks of her father's past because I liked seeing how what happened then, affected the way he is now. My favourite character was Hamesh, he was Sabrina's uncle. I loved reading about how he was as a rebel teen and how her dad looked up to him and thought the world of him, his personality amused me the most and I think I sort of had a minor crush on teenage Hamesh. Hahah! Not all that surprising since fictional characters seem to be the sort of guys I fall for most. I wouldn't say this book is one of my all-time favourites from her but I will admit it was definitely an enjoyable read. Totally worth picking up if you're looking for a new book. Any books you have recently read and loved? Let me know because I'm on the lookout for a new read.

Talk soon xx
