Waiting On Wednesday (59)



This is a meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where every Wednesday bloggers highlight a book that they are eagerly anticipating the release of!

Just One Day
By Gayle Forman
Release Date: January 8, 2013
Summary: A breathtaking journey toward self-discovery and true love, from the author of If I Stay

When sheltered American good girl Allyson "LuLu" Healey first meets laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter at an underground performance of Twelfth Night in England, there’s an undeniable spark. After just one day together, that spark bursts into a flame, or so it seems to Allyson, until the following morning, when she wakes up after a whirlwind day in Paris to discover that Willem has left. Over the next year, Allyson embarks on a journey to come to terms with the narrow confines of her life, and through Shakespeare, travel, and a quest for her almost-true-love, to break free of those confines.

Just One Day is the first in a sweepingly romantic duet of novels. Willem’s story—Just One Year—is coming soon!




I haven't read any of Gayle Forman's other books, but once I discovered this one I just haven't been able to get it out of my head! This sounds like the absolutely perfect contemporary romance that it even involves Shakespeare! Allyson's journey sounds so amazing as she travels through France and England, looking for her true love. I just sigh thinking about what a fantastic read this is going to be. But it doesn't come out until January??? Why??? I really hope this book is worth the wait because I want this in my hands right now! Haha, guess I'll see it in January...

  6. This sounds good, but it also sounds sad (like I'll need a box of tissues sitting next to me!). The European setting sounds beautiful, and it's definitely cheaper than a vacation. I'll be looking for this in January.
