Things I Know About Love by Kate Le Vann

Not all true love is destined to last . . .

Livia knows three things about love so far:
1. People don't always tell you the truth about how they feel.
2. Nothing that happens between two people is guaranteed to be private.
3. She doesn't know if you ever get over having your heart broken.

Livia's experience of love has been disappointing to say the least. But all that is about to change. After years of illness, she's off to spend the summer with her brother in America. She's making up for lost time, and she's writing it all down in her private blog. America is everything she ever dreamed of - and then she meets Adam. Can Livia put the past behind her and risk falling in love again?

If you're looking for a quick and light and fun read I think you'll find this book to be a good fit. Normally opinions on books are vast and varied but the more I heard about this particular story the more I saw this book didn't fit into that mold. Everyone I've talked to or read reviews from seems to agree that this is a "cute" and very "quick" book to get through. With it's 167 pages I think it may be one of the shorter books I've read. Livia has led a hard and somewhat sheltered life. She is currently in remission when we are introduced to her and she takes the journey from the UK to the U.S. to visit her brother at college. The book consists mainly of blog posts (which I loved) and it makes it more personable in my opinion. Readers really get the feeling that they're hearing Livia's voice throughout her postings, it doesn't feel so much like a narration. Her character was sweet and likable and I found myself pulling for her to come out on top. Adam and Jeff (her brother) are two more characters I enjoyed in this story. Livia and Jeff have a great brother/sister relationship and its touching to read. I was envious. Adam's posts were an additional way to get to know him and I enjoyed the opportunity. This is a very short book as I said so the ending kind of rushed up on me but at the same time was not quite shocking. Le Vann gives you laughs as well as tears and for me I thought it was a nice change to read a quick and touching story like this one. If you're not looking for a Tolstoy sized read this might be exactly what you're looking for.

Are you looking to read an emotional book about love? If yes, then get ready to read a heartwrenching story. I found this book to be really emotional. It was such a tear jeaker that I cried while reading it.The ending was absolutely sad but it still was worth reading.

It was super short so there wasnt much plot. There wasnt much of anything. Not a lot of adam :( the way the chapters were written was really cool. I loved nicholas sparks so i liked it but i thought the book was way too short to be a love story

I was looking for a short, fun read to have inbetween all the serious books I have been reading. Cute comedy about love? Check. 160 pages? Check. Boy, was I wrong, there is so much more depth then just a teen love story in this one. It amazes me on how you think a story is, or how it's going to go by just looking at the blurb about it and the book cover. Just opens my eyes to the whole don't judge a book by it's cover theory. Livia Stowe has gone through so much in her life. Recently, just getting the clean bill of health with her cancer, she feels brand new. Not to the point where she can challange the world, but just enough to go overseas to the US and visit her brother in college. After some whining and pleading to her mother, she get's her chance. USA here she comes! Time to hang out with her brother, travel down the road to New York, and realize what she can about love. USA definitely didn't fit her picture of what to expect. It was magical, bright, and had so much for Livia to experience. Especially when her brother's friend Adam starts to show interest in her. He is the older, attractive man, who knows Livia from her hometown and waits to spend time with her, no matter what the cost. After some awkward meetings together, they finally get alone and experience their own type of love with each other. Fantasies only last for so long though. Livia starts to develop a sore throat, which a normal person who just seem to be a cold, but for a cancer survivor, it could be life or death. She doesn't want her dream to end, Adam is the one for her, she can go home to England and see him. Livia loves him, but all good things must come to an end. Things I know about Love helps you remind yourself of your first love, your last love, and the love you never forgot.
