WoW: Just One Day

Just One Day by Gayle Forman 
Release: January 8, 2012

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.
I've heard nothing but good things about Gayle Forman's work. Why can't I just read faster? I honestly think, though, that this book appeals to me more than If I Stay did. And luckily, the book releases in a month, so it's not too long of a wait! I am hoping it will be heart-wrenching and thought-provoking as others have made it out to be. What are you waiting on?

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly Meme hosted by Jill @ Breaking the Spine. Book bloggers present upcoming books they can’t wait to read and share their enthusiasm about new releases.


  1. I haven't really been able to get into Gayle Forman's earlier books - but this one has Shakespeare, so maybe I'll have to give it a try!

  2. I liked Forman's other books, but I was never as into them as the rest of the planet seemed to be. However, this one sounds different, and just so amazing! Shakespeare, journey, and quest for love -what's not to like?

  3. Have you never read any of Gayle Foremans stuff? GIRL GET ON THAT!!! If I Stay and Where she Went are AMAZING. I am definitely super excited for this one. :D

  4. OH this was absolutely amazing! Possibly my most favorite book of all time! I cried so much and it's just...oh Oh OH!
