What if The One actually walks up to you and even says hello, would you greet back or turn your back unknowingly that you have actually met? Would you know when you’ve actually met?

Serendipity is a funny thing that brings a tinge of bittersweet bliss to anyone who is fortunate to experience it. Hello is a trilogy that explores how serendipitous life can sometimes be.

Definitely, Maybe is a story of how fate plays with two people as they meet each decade hoping that maybe this time around, they can finally be together.

Almost Mismatch tells how two people so right for each other be so wrong and no matter how much they try to suppress their feelings, true love will not stop at anything. What is meant to be will be.

Finally, Dinner Date portrays how two people’s search for love could take them to different places and people only to lead them back to where they started.

The world is just like a huge maze that no matter what direction one walks to, there will always be one final destination. There seems to be an invisible string that is handcuffed to two people on each end and unsuspectingly pulls these two people destined for each other back together no matter how long it takes.

So before I start, can I just say that I read this book while I was in class? Yes. You read that right. I chose to read the book instead of listening to my professor. Well I guess reading is better than sleeping right? Hahaha. Anyway, I saw this book in the wall of Summit Books before. Ms. Addie posted the picture in the wall of the Facebook page of Summit Books and I got curious. I wanted to read the story but I didn’t know how. So when I saw this blog tour, I joined immediately.

When I saw the word trilogy on the book cover, I didn’t get it at once. I thought it was similar to the Interim Goddess of Love Trilogy by Ms. Mina V. Esguerra but as I continued reading, I eventually found out what trilogy meant. The book has three stories in it. How could I be so slow? Hahaha.

For the positive points of the story, I could say that the stories are relate-able. They could really happen and the emotions of the characters are really felt. It’s really hard for me to stop reading at a certain point. You would really want to continue reading until you found out what happens next or how the story will end. Aside from that, the words that were used were really perfect in the sense that they were used at the right places and at the right time. And of course, it’s a plus that there are stories in one book!

But if there would be something that could be negative in the story, I guess the stories really left me hanging. I wanted to read more, to know more about the story and the characters. Yes, it has three stories but I just wished that I could continue reading the stories of all characters. Aside from that, there are some typographical errors. (I think?) There are times that a sentence should pertain to a specific character but it was constructed in a way that it makes me think that it’s another character. So it’s kind of confusing.

Setting all those glitches aside, I guess the book’s still a must read. I fell in love with the book and I’m really glad that I got the chance to read it.

Author Profile:

Addie grew up reading Sweet Valley High books and Nancy Drew mystery books. She finished a degree in Communication Arts and really wanted to pursue a career in filmmaking but due to high production costs of a film, she opted to tell her stories through her novels. Being the hopeless romantic that she was, she will stop at nothing to share her passion with everyone and hopes that she could infect others with it. She’s a daydreamer by day and an author by night.
