On the face of it, how to fall in love seems like any other perfectly cooked love story, with an easy blend of drama, tragedy, humour and love. But it is deep in its intricacies, wherein lies the delicacy and the soul of the book. It has emotional complexity, the dark theme of depression and two lives falling apart, but still leaves the impression of a fairy tale. From witty banters to deep conversations trying to combat mental instability,From delinquent and cheating exes to hilarious family encounters, this novel has just as much soft comfort as there are hard planes of the stark reality of life.

Give yourself at least a full day for this one, because once you step into the charming world of a Cecilia Ahern novel, it is hard to step out!
