A Felicidade é como Roma - são múltiplos os Caminhos para lá chegarConfesso que nutro um especial prazer por qualquer estória que ponha em causa aqueles valores sociais que nos foram impingidos com o leite materno - já cá estavam antes da nossa vinda ao Mundo e são-nos transmitidos como um prolongamento do ADN!Se não fosse isso, esta seria uma daquelas leituras com etiqueta "mais do mesmo"A, B e C conhecem-se muito jovens e crescem juntos.Vivem, descobrem e interpretam o Mundo sempre in [...]

After the huge success of Billy And Me last year, I have been waiting rather impatiently for Giovanna’s second novel to hit the shelves. Billy And Me was by far one of my favourite books of last year and I had really high hopes that this second novel would be just as good, if not better. I wasn’t disappointed. You’re The One That I Want tells the story of Maddy, Robert and Ben: three friends who have known each other since childhood. Growing up together, Maddy, Robert and Ben were affectio [...]

A glittering 5 stars!My emotions are a freaking mess right now. Because of this book, this amazing, emotional, tension filled read. Ahh!I only purchased this book today while out shopping with my parents and within a few hours of purchase, I've read it. And the truth is: I'm not disappointed at all. I really don't know how to write this review up because i'm literally speechless. Even my cat thought I was being mad. But here goes.Maddy, Rob and Ben met for the first time during their childhood w [...]

'choose your love story and stick to it'What a wonderful, wonderful book. ♥'You're The One That I Want' is about Maddy and her two best friends Ben and Robert. They meet in school when they are only nine years old. Both boys start to fall for Maddy (and Maddy kind of falls for both of them), but only one of them gets the chance to really be with her. And that is Robert. On a school trip to Paris Ben wants to tell Maddy his feelings, but Robert is a step ahead of him. First come, first served. [...]

I’m currently a little over 100 pages in and I get the feeling that this book was written to just get another book out after the success of “Billy and Me”. Maybe if there had been a bit more time, both the writer and editor could have caught the remaining spelling mistakes. The book reads as a diary of sorts and it’s just not really my thing. Plus the different POV’s made it not easy to read.I’m all for a good love story but why go for the predictable “two boys, one girl in a frien [...]

My initial thought after the intro was: Maddy either chooses the initial groom and the whole story in between would kind of be unnecessary OR she leaves her groom for their mutual best best friend and that would be pretty awful for their friendship. Sounds promising, right?The story is told from two points of view: Ben and Maddy's, recalling various milestones of their lives from age 9, when they met, until the present day. Their narrations overlap sometimes, so you can see how both of them expe [...]

Beautiful beautiful book. Yet another masterpiece from Mrs Giovanna Falcone Fletcher. ♥ I adore her and her family as you might already know. Tom is the sun. (not relevant,i know) This book was like 'One Day' only with a love triangle. BUT BUT before you guys start complaining about the triangle,its not the usual triangle. Its true and pure and just the right kind,perhaps the most destructive kind. Its a story about three best friends,them growing up, and the complications that come with it. M [...]

O que posso dizer sobre este livrinho *delicioso* e sobre esta história a não ser que foi das histórias de amor e amizade mais ternurenta e comovente que li nos últimos tempos? Bem foi mesmo! Maddy, Ben e Robert fazem um tripé perfeito. Um não avança sem os outros dois e nenhum deles tem uma decisão sem consultar os restantes. Achei esta amizade fantástica. o tipo de relacionamento que qualquer criança e mais tarde adolescente gostaria de ter. Saber que se pode contar com alguém, sem [...]

I have to say, I do love a good chick-lit. They are easy to read, usually pretty concise, and will steer clear of any complicated subject matters. After reading a selection of academic literature, I needed a break. This is where Giovanna Fletcher came in. I had heard through the grapevine that she was the next big thing with chick-lit. Many people had recommended her to me, so this along with a number of good reviews led me to this book. I was excited. I ran myself a bath, lit a few candles and [...]

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book however looking back at it it does seem to lack a storyline- the story doesn't really go anywhere. This book adopts an unusual style where it starts off in the present, then skips back to the character's earlier lives from when they were 9 up until they were 25 then returns to the present again. I quite enjoyed this style as it allowed you to learn much more about the characters and get to know them before you find out what is happening to them currently. I [...]

I really didn't expected to like this book the way that I did.The story of Ben and Maddy is so cute, sad and happy at the same time.I read it on ebook, but I will definitely buy a physical copy.

4.5 starsStraight off the bat I want to put it out there that I am not a fan of love triangles. A story where one girl is in love with two guys and messes everybody around as she tries to decide which one she wants to be with has a tendency to rub me the wrong way. But once in a while a book comes along featuring the kind of love triangle that I adore, one where love runs not just between the girl and each man but between the two guys also. The love story in You’re The One That I Want is betwe [...]

I have been a fan of Giovanna Fletcher since I first read her beautiful debut – Billy and me. Knowing how much I had enjoyed her first novel, I was very excited about You’re The One That I Want.Maddy is standing at the back of the church on her wedding day ready to walk down the aisle. Waiting for her at the end is Rob – the man she’s about to marry. Next to Rob is Ben, Rob’s best man and their best friend. But if it wasn’t Rob waiting for her then there is a high chance it would be [...]

Nem sei por onde começar É difícil transmitir o quanto gostei deste livro! Não é nenhuma obra prima, mas transparece valores importantes. Foi um livro que descobri por acaso numa livraria e mal o comecei, já não o consegui largar. Foi mesmo um grande achado! Adorei acompanhar a amizade desde crianças da Maddy, do Ben e do Robert. Ri e chorei ao acompanhar os seus crescimentos. Vibrei com cada um deles quando descobriram o amor. Este foi um dos triângulos amorosos mais bem conseguidos qu [...]

I have really loved all of Giovanna's previous books and decided that I would give this one a try as it was sat on my unread pile of books. The book opens with Maddy as she walks down the aisle towards her future groom. We then take a huge step back to Maddy as a young child. The story revolves around her lifelong friendship with Ben and Robert. The story switches characters between chapters as we see the three friends start their blossoming friendship as young children. I loved the early days a [...]

Favorite Quotes:If only falling out of love was as easy as falling in it. If only being with the girl I loved was as easy as all the songs on the radio insisted.I know some people don’t believe that you can love two people at the same time… You can and it’s an awful feeling, because no matter what you decide to do about it you’re always going to hurt someone.Well, when I was six we were asked to draw a picture of what we thought the millennium would look like – I drew some elaborate fl [...]

Heartbreaking, bittersweet and emotionally resonant!This is an engrossing love triangle that takes you on a rollercoaster ride of young love, tension, heartache, happiness, guilt, regret, romance and enduring friendship.The writing is eloquent. The characters are loyal, dependable, generous and sympathetic. And the story is narrated from two different perspectives and uses a past/present style to give both depth and understanding to all the relationships, personalities and underlying motivations [...]

You're The One That I Want is Giovanna Fletcher's second novel which I have been eagerly awaiting after thoroughly enjoying Billy and Me last year. The cover for this one is beautiful, the colours used are going to make this one pop on the shelves and the cover suits the storyline well with the female shown in the middle of the two males.The storyline follows the very close friendship of Maddy, Ben and Robert from when they first meet at such a young age and we then watch them and their relation [...]

I really struggled with this book.I hate love triangles at the best of times and it's only because I adore Giovanna that I purchased the book in the first place.The plot was sloppy at best (even though I feel like there was absolutely no plot at all, there was no advancement to the story from start to finish, none at all). The characters undeveloped and too predictable in all of the worst ways possible. Which is typical for a love triangle story. It's a boring trope.A lot of the story is spent w [...]

This book filled me both with joy and heartbreak. Which is a bit contradictory, I know, but I guess if I had to make a simile, I'd say it is like a fulfilled relationship that gave you a lot of joy and you ended up hurting a lot. But it's still worth it. (Not like I'd really know this by experience, but I'd watch a lot of romances on TV.) What can I say, the hopeless romantic in me wants to go through the good times even if I suspect and then know it will end up breaking my hearth to pieces. Thi [...]

Oh my god this book was lovely! Also finishing this with a frapaccino was such a "girlie" moment. A perfect way to end a chick lit, innit?I haven't read chick lit in a really long time and this got me back to it. Even tho chick lit is the equivalent of romantic comedies, which are incredibly predictable, this was not predictable! I stopped in the middle a bit cause my heart was breaking too much, continued cause a chick lit cannot possibly end unhappily to its protagonist, then dived it because [...]

I’ll say one thing for Giovanna Fletcher. She knows how to write real, believable characters. However, being real characters doesn’t make them any less annoying. As you know from the blurb, Maddie has two best friends and she’s marrying Rob, while also being in love with Ben. We’re taken back all the way to when they were 9 and met at school, we go through their whole teenage and college years, which makes the book read a lot like a Young Adult movie. And Maddie acts a lot like a teenage [...]

"If only falling out of love was as easy as falling in it." This quote sums up exactly how I feel now that I've finished the book. I've deeply and horrendously fallen in love with 'You're The One That I Want', so much so, that I'm struggling to even BEGIN thinking of a book I can read next that will fill the Maddy/ Ben/ Robert (even Alice) shaped holes left on my heart. Oh Giovanna, what have you done to me. So, I totally picked this up on a whim as I was passing by a local charity shop for stra [...]

My one-word review is: BITTERSWEET.It's really hard to write a review without giving away spoilers. But I'll keep it short and try. It's a love triangle, so it sort of goes without saying that someone is going to end up left out. What I wasn't prepared for was the emotional turmoil this book gave me! it literally took my heart out of my chest and split it in two! I wanted it to end the way it ended and I wanted it to end the opposite way. As I said, bittersweet. No ending could be entirely satis [...]

I’m not going to lie, I ordered this book because I knew she was the wife of Tom Fletcher, from McFly and I wanted to see what it would be like. I went in with no knowledge of the book and very little expectation. The truth is I was blown away. I completed the book while waiting for my flight, bearing in mind I’ve been in book slump for a while, and I completed it in one sitting. Result!Maddy, Rob and Ben meet for the first time when Maddy joins their school when she is nine, since then they [...]

A beautifully written story which teaches us that you can have more than one soulmate in life after all, but that sometimes circumstances, such as wrong-timing or lack of courage to declare your feelings, determine who you're gonna end up with.
