Waiting On Wednesday: Just One Year


Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.  It features each bloger's most anticipated books.  This week, my pick is Just One Year by Gayle Forman.  


Summary:  Can you fall in love in just one day? Can you become a new person? How about in just one year? In Just One Day and its companion novel Just One Year, sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey and easygoing actor Willem De Ruiter are about to find out against a guidebook-worthy array of foreign backdrops. Equal parts romance, coming-of-age-tale, mystery and travel romp (with settings that span from England’s Stratford upon Avon to Paris to Amsterdam to India’s Bollywood) Just One Day and Just One Year show how in looking for someone else, you just might wind up finding yourself.

Why I Can't Wait:  Personally, I adored Just One Day.  I sat down and read it in one day because I just couldn't stop reading it.  The book really sucked me in, and I loved the settings that Ms. Forman took me through.  

Ok so my favorite part about this book?  It's going to be in Willem's POV.  I really want to know what was going on in his head after seeing how much Allyson suffered during that year.  Plus he travels so much that the settings have got to be equally as awesome!!  

Expected Release Date:  October 15, 2013 by Dutton Children's

What book are you waiting anxiously for?

  1. I haven't read the first book yet and am thinking of putting it off until the release date for this is closer, so I don't have such a long wait.

    My WOW

  4. I've heard so many great things about Just One Day - it seems fantastic. I read If I Stay by Gayle Forman as well, but was a bit disappointed with it. I hope the Just One Day series is better. :) Thanks for spotlighting this and for stopping by my WoW. ^.^
    Happy Reading! :D
