Ten Years by Pernille Hughes
Star rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
Publisher: One More Chapter 
Publication date: 31st August 2022

Becca and Charlie have known each other since university.

Becca and Charlie have also hated each other since university.

Until now. Until Ally’s bucket list. The death of their loved one should mean they can go their separate ways and not look back. But completing the list is something neither of them can walk away from.

And sometimes, those who bring out the worst in you, also bring out the very best…

Over the course of ten years, Becca and Charlie’s paths collide as they deal with grief, love and life after Ally.

Ten Years follows our main characters, Charlie and Becca over the course of ten years. Charlie's fiancĂ©e and Becca's best friend Ally sadly passes away. Charlie and Becca can't stand each other but after discovering that Ally left a bucket list that she wanted the two of them to complete together, they are forced to do a task each year on the anniversary of Ally's death. 

This makes them spend more and more time together and realise that they don't really hate each other after all.

I really enjoyed the character growth that we saw over the years. Charlie moving on with his relationships, Becca being angry thinking he'd forgotten about Ally, I think they were two very accurate portrayals following the loss of a loved one.

The backstories, Becca's especially, were emotional and I loved the little twist at the end.
