Tea in Space: Thanks for the Memories

Where you can drink Tea in Space, the possibilities are infinite. Join Ingram buyers Alethea Kontis, Janet Lee, Kitti McConnell, and Lillie Rainey for tea and conversation, as they discuss the universe of genre fiction. This month, the Genre Chicks serve up Cecelia Ahern’s Thanks for the Memories, a new hardcover release from HarperCollins.


I became a fan of Cecilia Ahern through her amazingly performed audiobooks. If You Could See Me Now, There’s No Place Like Here, and of course the very popular PS, I Love You. All of Cecelia’s books have fantastic characters, great dialogue, and that slight fantastic edge — as any Irish girl worth her salt would.

Thanks for the Memories begins in the same magical vein. Justin Hitchcock is a visiting art history professor at Trinity College who reluctantly donates blood to impress a woman. In another part of Ireland, Joyce Conway falls down the stairs in her home and loses her baby. She wakes up in the hospital after a transfusion and suddenly speaks three languages and begins experiencing memories that are not her own.
