My Review

Today I am joining the blog tour to celebrate the paperback publication for You Me and the Movies by Fiona Collins. This was my first read by Fiona Collins and I am really pleased I picked a copy up, it is a lovely story focused around the relationship of Mac & Arden.

Mac & Arden knew each other many years ago when Arden was still a student and by chance she stumbles across a mute Mac years on from their original relationship. Whilst reading this story it explores past and present day and how they can recall their relationship through the movies. I loved getting to know both Arden and Mac through the film references he recalls and the memories that it triggers for Arden.

A beautiful story that deals with layers of complex issues as you delve deeper into the past, a lovely uplifting story that will make you smile and leave you feeling warmhearted, a true love story.

 

Book Blurb

Arden has just started university when she meets Mac – and quickly falls head over heels for the
handsome, charismatic film lecturer. Their love affair is dramatic, exciting and all consuming; the
sort of thing you only see in the movies. It couldn’t last.
But thirty years later, leading a very different life, Arden is visiting a friend in hospital when she
suddenly comes across the man she never forgot. Badly injured in an accident, Mac can only make
brief references to the classic films they once watched together: Casablanca, A Star is Born, Pretty
Woman among others… and they make Arden remember everything.
The bittersweet memories of their relationship help Arden re-connect with the world in a way she
no longer thought was possible.
But will a movie-worthy love ever be hers again?

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
