Who Do You Love // Collaboreads {A book you can finish in one day}

Joining Kristin and Rachel in their book lovers link up and this month's Collaboreads prompt is a book you can finish in one day now for full disclosure I didn't finish it in one day but since I'm running on Mom Time my two day run equals that of a regular reader's one ;) (that may also be Mom Math haha.) 
Who Do You Love // Collaboreads {A book you can finish in one day}
Goodreads Synopsis
Rachel Blum and Andy Landis are eight years old when they meet late one night in an ER waiting room. Born with a congenital heart defect, Rachel is a veteran of hospitals, and she's intrigued by the boy who shows up all alone with a broken arm. He tells her his name. She tells him a story. After Andy's taken back to the emergency room and Rachel's sent back to her bed, they think they'll never see each other again.

Rachel, the beloved, popular, and protected daughter of two doting parents, grows up wanting for nothing in a fancy Florida suburb. Andy grows up poor in Philadelphia with a single mom and a rare talent that will let him become one of the best runners of his generation.

Over the course of three decades, through high school and college, marriages and divorces, from the pinnacles of victory and the heartbreak of defeat, Andy and Rachel will find each other again and again, until they are finally given a chance to decide whether love can surmount difference and distance and if they've been running toward each other all along.

With honesty, wit, and clear-eyed observations about men and women, love and fate, and the truth about happy endings, Jennifer Weiner delivers two of her most memorable characters, and a love story you'll never forget.

Riveting
I'm a sucker for sweeping timelines and happy endings, just call me a Romantic. This book delivered on everything; it was thoughtful and funny but emotionally deep and satisfying. If I ever wrote a book it would be very much like this one. I usually put read books into the Free Little Library box but I just gotta hold on to this one.

Elements
I just adored the main characters! Rachel for her spunk and tenacity and Andy for his gentleness and self drive; both are broken (one physically and one emotionally) but therein lies their greatest strength. And once they are together, pure magic.

Associate
I've been racking my brain for something similar but can't... so anti-climatic. But it kinda reminds me of my own love story with my husband so maybe that's why it's so dear to my heart?
I already had one friend read this book after my praises so the other day, Jess and I were brainstorming who would play Rachel and Andy in the movie adaptation. I said Selena Gomez as young adult Rachel and Jess said Lauren Graham as an older Rachel. We're both stumped on Andy... Any suggestions?

Design
Give me a clean cover and a red heart and I'm sold.

Stars
5 out of 5. I'm not kidding when I say I loved this book. Just read it and thank me later.

  1. It's SOOOO good! I was hooked and couldn't put it down. Not really the best when I'm supposed to be mommin' but they were happy. Ha ha! I still can't come up with any suggestions for Andy. It could totally be a movie though.

  4. I really like Jennifer Weiner. I think. If I am putting author to book correctly =) Lincoln stopped napping on me though, so I stopped having time to read. But, since I already hit my goal for the year I'm good!
