Just One Day by Gayle Forman Review

Just One Day
by Gayle Forman
Published on August 20th 2013
Speak, 369 pages


Allyson Healey's life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything she’s not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allyson’s life.

A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate, Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.

- goodreads.com description


“Part of me knows one more day won't do 
anything except postpone the heartbreak.
But another part of me believes differently.
We are born in one day.
We die in one day.
We can change in one day.
And we can fall in love in one day.
Anything can happen in just one day.”

This book was absolutely brilliant. I loved it. 

I read the Just One Year as well. But Just One Day is my absolute favourite. Allyson's journey of discovery of the wonderful place called life was just mesmerising. Sometimes a bit painful as it hit a little too close to home.

It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover Review

It Ends With Us
by Colleen Hoover
Published on August 2nd 2016
Atria Books, 376 pages



SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO LOVES YOU IS THE ONE WHO HURTS YOU THE MOST

Lily hasn't always had it easy, but that's never stopped her from working hard for the life she wants. She's come a long way from the small town in Maine where she grew up - she graduated from college, moved to Boston, and started her own business. So when she feels a spark with a gorgeous neurosurgeon named Ryle Kincaid, everything in Lily's life suddenly seems almost too good to be true.

Ryle is assertive, stubborn, and maybe even a little arrogant. He's also sensitive, brilliant, and has a total soft spot for Lily, but Ryle's complete aversion to relationships is disturbing.

As questions about her new relationship overwhelm her, so do thoughts of Atlas Corrigan - her first love and a link to the past she left behind. He was her kindred spirit, her protector. When Atlas suddenly reappears, everything Lily has built with Ryle is threatened.

With this bold and deeply personal novel, Colleen Hoover delivers a heart-wrenching story that breaks exciting new ground for her as a writer. It Ends With Us is an unforgettable tale of love that comes at the ultimate price.

- Goodreads.com description

Cycles exist because they are excruciating to break. 
It takes an astronomical amount of pain and
courage to disrupt a familiar pattern. Sometimes it
seems easier to just keep running in the same 
familiar circles, rather than facing the fear of 
jumping and possibly not landing on your feet.

Wow, honestly, I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I picked up this book. 
No. Idea.

Oh my feels, this book. It was one of the most real and heart breaking books I've ever read. It breaks my heart all over again when I think about it.

Then Came You by Lisa Kleypas Review

Then Came You
by Lisa Kleypas
Published on June 30th 2015
Avon, 384 pages

A woman with a secret...

Reckless beauty Lily Lawson delights in shocking London society. She will break any rule to get what she wants... and she is determined to stop her younger sister from marrying Alex, Lord Wolverton, a handsome and arrogant earl who has vowed never to fall in love.

A man who will do anything to possess her...

To Alex's fury, the headstrong hellion presents a temptation he can't resist. He vows to make her pay dearly for her interference—with her body, her soul, and her stubborn, well-guarded heart.

As Alex and Lily challenge each other at every turn, they are caught up in a white-hot desire that burns through every defense and exposes the mystery of Lily's past... and together they discover that love is the most dangerous game of all. 

- Goodreads.com description

"Why hasn't she ever married?"
"Lily has always said that marriage is a dreadful 
institution devised for the benefit of men, not women."

This was one of the most beautiful historical romance novels I have ever encountered. 

The main character Lily was the most outspoken and brave heroine in historical romance fiction. She is unbelievable. I admired her so much.

Which hour was most daunting for you?
Hour 14. I crashed. Went for a power nap, which turned out to be a deep sleep for hours. Woke up at hour 23.

Could you list a few high-interest books that you think could keep a Reader engaged for next year?
I insist contemporary romance books are the best way to go. 

Do you have any suggestions for how to improve the Read-a-thon next season?
As I state every year (twice) this event is made of awesome. Keep the good work readathon people! The only thing that I skipped this time were the challenges. I haven't done any at all. The titles didn't seem intriguing. 

What do you think worked really well in this year’s Read-a-thon?
The twitter feed was bat shit crazy good!

How many books did you read?
1 book + 

What were the names of the books you read?
It Ends With Us by Colleen Hoover (367 pages)
Walk Of Shame by Lauren Layne (about 50 pages)

Total of: 417 freaking pages! 


Which book did you enjoy most?
The one that I actually managed to finish :D It Ends With Us was in intense read. I loved every second of it, but by all means, it was no light read.

How likely are you to participate in the Read-a-thon again? What role would you be likely to take next time?
I love participating in this event! It's a blast everytime!
