The Bucket List
Leah thought that the turmoil in her life had come to an end. That is, until the boy-next-door who’s just moved in, turns out to be none other than her old childhood best friend, Damon. Rekindling their friendship, the two become inseparable and life seems perfect, until Leah learns a tragic secret; Damon is terminally ill and has only one more year to live.
Leah and Damon decide to embark on an adventure to have the time of their lives and cross out every to-do on their ‘Bucket List’. With the clock ticking and time precious, will they be able to complete every goal before time runs out?
Now, this is how all books should be written. From the heart with love. This is not your classic boy and girl reunite and instantly strike up a relationship. In fact, Damon already had a girlfriend and it was not until he broke up that Leah and Damon hooked up. At that point it felt natural and right.
The idea of a bucket list and Leah and Damon doing as many things on Damon's list as possible before time is up was great. The reason for this is because they really had no regrets in anything they did. Even if it meant audiencing in front of a bunch of strangers, getting tattoos, eating junk food all day, or making love on a beach. Every moment that Leah and Damon shared was great.
Although, I knew how the story would end. I still shed some tears. This is because of the emotional connection I had grown towards Damon and Leah. The Bucket List is a book you will want to read over and over again.
