Here's my selection for this week...
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???
