A ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️  Review by Pages Abound

“We taught each other how to live, and in doing so, taught each other how to die. For one cannot exist without the other. Life means death, and death means life.”


A beautifully written story about leaving behind a legacy–about making your mark in the word, whether if affects one or millions. Is the story about knowing that we are all born to die–that our time is limited–and should, therefore, not be squandered but embraced. It is a story about finding passion, enjoying each moment, and learning to find freedom in life rather than worrying about what ifs, the past, or death. It is about making connections and building relationships for however long time allows. It is about living in the now to create memories for the future.

“Be the person you want people to one day say you were. And start now. Because the timeless truth remains that time is running out for all of us, ready or not. So live and love. Truly, deeply, freely.”

The Counting Downers Synopsis:

 The stunningly poignant and life-affirming debut novel by A.J. Compton

Imagine if we could see how long everyone around us had left to live. But we weren’t allowed to know our own numbers…

Trying to make sense of life after the death of her beloved father, free spirit Matilda Evans meets Tristan Isaacs and discovers a marrow-deep connection with him.

No stranger to grief himself, lonely artist Tristan is in awe of Matilda’s fun and philosophical approach to life. With every second spent in her presence, he finds his views on life and loss changing, and begins to embrace the beauty of being alive.

As their friendship turns into something deeper, lessons are learned, memories are made, and legacies are created.

But with both of them knowing how long their soulmate has left in this lifetime, important questions have to be asked and tough decisions have to be made before time runs out.

The Counting-Downers is an inspiring story about life, loss, love, and making the most of every moment.

A.J. Compton Bio:

Displaying AJ Compton Author Pic.jpeg

A.J. Compton is a 23-year-old Londoner, professional dreamer, and full-time over-thinker. She is the author of The Counting-Downers and a dozen other unfinished manuscripts which will hopefully see the light of day soon.

A University of Cambridge graduate, A.J. is currently in a polygamous relationship with an embarrassing number of fictional book boyfriends.

Those two facts are not related. Honestly.

She loves people-watching and exploring her observations in her writing.

She really hates writing about herself in the third person.
