    3.5 stars. I don't know why I thought this was going to be a cute story with cute little bits. It wasn't. Maybe the "game" concept threw me off from the beginning and I had expectations that it would be light and sweet. So I think it's important to make it clear that this is no...

    This is the story of Tom & Esme told by looking back at their 24 most significan moments. "Not the best moments, she had been careful to write in her rules. The most significant." And that is exactly what you get here. It's not a book full of the two getting all lovey-dovey. Instea...

    The reason I requested this book is that there was quite a hype on Twitter and I was curious. As it was labeled as "Women's fiction" I expected the usual heartwarming, funny book that is a lot of fun to read. I was wrong, this is an amazing book, heart wrenching and full of emotions. ...

    I think what I enjoyed most about this book is it?s honesty. Tom and Esme?s life is far from perfect, and the game Esme has devised for their 10 year anniversary gives an insight into the ups and downs over the years. The book is told from Tom?s pov, and in the beginning he s...

    Thank you Orion and NetGalley for the advanced copy of this book - all opinions are my own. What is there to say other than this book is a gorgeously done, emotional rollercoaster that absolutely crushed me right in the heart. I devoured this story in one very fast sitting, as I fel...

    This is an honest and thought provoking read about male mental illness and those little facts we neglect to tell people in our lives for fear of rejection, hurt and not being understood. This is a warts and all story about a ten year relationship that is not a mills and boon novel but ...

    What is it about this novel and these two people that made me read straight through, despite its length, without once feeling a drag in plot or character? I found it compulsively readable, believable. Even though not much happens outside the connection between these two people their po...

    What a unique book! I loved the story line and while it took a little bit to get used to the timeline, I really enjoyed the progression. My only complaint is that I wish there was more time spent on some of the characters so we got a little more about them. I really resonated with some...

    I struggled to give this a rating - it's well written and I like the concept of exploring a relationship through key moments that happen over the years. However I tend not to enjoy stories that leap around in time the way this one does and I found both the main characters difficult to ...

    Bittersweet Love Story Esme and Tom meet and fall in love, but they both have past experiences which they're not completely honest about, especially Tom, and their relationship runs into difficulties. It's told going back and forth over ten years, to their 10th anniversary, and the ...

    Our Life in a Day was a unique, refreshing love story. I may be in the minority, but I?m not the type of reader who needs the happily ever after in fiction. I am always drawn to books that have the ability to pull the good, the bad, and the ugly from real life and provide a realistic...

    A quite brilliant book, taking a unique narrative framework to create a story about love gained, love lost and love in general. How society shapes us and how we shape our relationships to suit ourselves based upon our needs. Tom and Esme are a kismet couple who are great for each other...

    3.5 rounded up for concept This story is well written. The concept and execution is so very clever. It was interesting to learn about the characters through a series of flashbacks that have occurred throughout their relationship. Ok, now comes the but, the only problem with this sto...

    When I first started Our Life in a Day, it was good, holding my interest as I continued to read, but I just wasn?t sure where it was heading. As I kept reading, I started to predict the direction the story was taking - sometimes I was right and sometimes I was wrong - but it didn?t...

    When Tom?s best friend Annabel pushes him into chatting to Esme at a fancy dress party the consequences will reverberate throughout the next decade. This is going to be one of those reviews that is difficult to write without including spoilers so I?ll state unequivocally that I ...

    Awful. The suspense around what the bloke (name forgotten already) did whilst he had a drinking problem was turgid and tedious. The premise of each chapter being a significant hour in the couple?s life added nothing to what essentially was a below-parr piece of chick lit. ...

    Oh my heart. I absolutely loved this book. It's a story about love, about our mental health and of how we need to be true to each other, but more importantly, true to who we are. It's a thought provoking read that l just simply adored it's a beautiful story. Esme and Tom are about...

    Thank you NetGalley for the advanced copy of this book in return for a honest review. This book started off as a cute, chick-lit love story but then it turned into something better. It's so refreshing to read a love story that tells the real struggles we all have with our relations...

    At last a love story that's realistic and deals with all the issues of being in a real relationship. I wasn't to keen on Tom's character at the start as he was definitely not the stronger part of the couple and I felt that he gave into Esme for a quiet life. It wasn't until his back st...
