I know I’ve said this a million times already but Love, Rosie is my favorite book ever! Like, seriously. I’ve read it so many times before but I still fall in love with it each and everytime. Others might not find the story as beautiful as I do but I think Alex and Rosie have always been special to me since the moment I’ve first read their story. Maybe it’s how I can relate to their story and how they’ve dealt with life’s mishaps and how destiny proves that two people who belong with each other will always find their way back to each other in the end. No matter how long it takes them to.
Now I’m sharing one of my favorite scenes from the book, the one when Rosie visited Alex in Boston and when that silence thing both happened to them. And I really want to feel that silence myself. Maybe when I find my very own Alex! 🙂
“At first we had so much to catch up on we were talking a hundred words a second, barely even listening to the ends of one another’s sentences before moving onto the next. And there was laughing. Lots of laughing. Then the laughing stopped and there was this silence. What the hell was it?
It was like the world stopped turning in that instant. Like everyone around us had disappeared. Like everything at home was forgotten about. It was as if those few minutes on this world were created just for us and all we could do was look at each other. It was like he was seeing my face for the first time. He looked confused but kind of amused. Exactly how I felt. Because I was sitting on the grass with my best friend Alex, and that was my best friend Alex’s face and nose and eyes and lips, but they seemed different. So I kissed him. I seized the moment and I kissed him.”
