Thanks for the Memories by Cecelia Ahern

Front Flap: How can you know someone you've never met? That's the question haunting Joyce Conway these days. REcovering from a terrible accident and with her marriage in pieces, Joyce is suddenly plagued by an overwhelming sense of deja vu that makes her feel as if the life she's living id not her own. During the day the has vivid memories of things she's never seen- such as cobblestoned Parisian streets she's never visited- and at night she dreams of a little girl she's sure she's never met. Joyce is convinced she's lost her mind... until a series of coincidences leads her on a journey to meet the one person who may hold the answer she needs. Someone's life could be depending on you right now... That's the pitch that finally persuades Justin Hitchcock to donate blood- the first thing to come straight from his heart in a long time. REstless and lonely, Justin chased his ex-wife and daughter from Chicago to London, and now he's in Dublin, guest-lecturing to bored college students. When hre receives a basket of muffins with a thank-you note attached, he's sure someone's playing a joke on him, but then the presents keep coming. Intrigued, Justin is determined to solve the mystery- a quest that will change his life forever.
Gosh I just love to read, especially books like these when I know nothing about it and it's super good! I've never read a book like this before. How Justin donated blood and it ended up going to Joyce and she is now seeing his memories. I guessed it pretty early on, at first I was a little confused though. But then it hit me! And it's def a unique ideas, I wonder if that's ever happened to someone before? ya never know, but anyways the book is super good. Because it has a woman who has struggled a lot, especially not being able to have a baby and then losing it, that's super hard. But she still has her dad, even though her mom is gone, and Justin had the opposite, until his mom died carrying the secret with her, him being the only one left! That's so sad too, that he killed himself! The dad did. And he's the only one who knows, but not anymore because now Joyce does. And she's the one who gives him those presents, but is too scared to meet him. I mean it's so crazy! That you can be connected to someone that way by giving blood. But it was def an interesting book and I'd def like to read more books from her :]
