Waiting on Wednesday, #17

 Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases we can't wait to get our hands on.

Here's my selection for this week...

Just One Day by Gayle Forman
Expected publication: January 8, 2013
Publisher: Dutton Juvenile
Preorder: Amazon  |  Barnes & Noble

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.

Would it be too cliche if I rave about the gorgeous cover again this week? Well I won't... but I'm thinking it... so there you go. :) But besides that, can you believe we're FINALLY getting another book by Gayle Forman? It feels like forever ago when Adam sent me on an emotional roll-a-coaster reminding me why I love Forman's writing so much. Well this book sounds fantastic and I can't wait!!  Gayle Forman is one of the main reasons why I keep coming back to Contemporary YA when I want to find that perfect "let-me-hug-you-and-make-it-all-better" character. I love her writing, I love her cast, and I love her emotional punches as crazy as that sounds. =}

Are you as excited about Just One Day as I am? Well if you are, pull out your sharpies and mark your calendar for January 8th! Or, you can just add it to your TBR on Goodreads... that works too. :P

Soooo, what book are you waiting on???

  1. I can't wait for the next Gayle Foreman. I don't even have to read the synopsis to know that I'm going to pick it up. Great pick this week ladies. :)
