Of Blah Main Character And blah main character and boring plot wasn t keeping me entertained I was already in a rather blah mood and difficult to impress So things that might not have bothered me otherwise started to bother me It just seemed like this book was trying
too hard For example Gayle throws in a bunch of Dutch words at hard For example Gayle throws in a bunch of Dutch words at to I don t know emphasize the fact that Willem s Dutch And while I appreciate the effort and none of it was incorrect or anything it felt extremely odd as a Dutch reader Particularly when Willem meets up with his Dutch friends Animal Babies guys all in their 20s and then Broodje suggests making a borrelhapje Here s a Dutch lesson anything ending with je is the diminutive form of the word It s cutsey It s not something that aroup of 20 year old Offenders and Detainees guys would ever seriously say It sounded extremely awkward And another thing that bothered me is Forman slaring attempts to be deep When you re in a naggy mood reading one of her books is a bad idea Each chapter ends with a sentence that has like a double or deeper meaning But it just annoyed me I just felt it was so obvious and trying too hard Just No Ugh Cue the eyerollsThe endingI couldn t imagine a bigger disappointment view spoilerIT HONESTLY JUST SHOWS THEM TOGETHER FOR ONE SECOND MORE THAN JUST ONE DAY SERIOUSLY SHE ENTERS THE APARTMENT AND THEN HE KISSES HER AND THAT S NOT EVEN DESCRIBED IN A SWOONTASTIC WAY THEY DON T EVEN SPEAK IT JUST FUCKING ENDS WHAT THE HELLLLLLLLLLLLL WAS THAT WHAT WAS THE POINT I READ THIS BOOK TO SEE THEM TOGETHER AND IT THIS BOOK TO SEE THEM TOGETHER AND IT T FREAKING HAPPEN FUCK EVERYTHING hide spoiler This book is everything I wanted it to be and before reading Published 2013 by Dutton JuvenilePLEASE TELL ME THAT MEANS FEBRUARY 2013 NOT OCTOBER 2013 OR ANY MONTH AFTER FEBRUARY I DON T KNOW IF MY HEART CAN TAKE THE WAITETA OCTOBER DAMMIT WHY AM I SO GOOD AT PREDICTING THIS IS WHY WE CAN T HAVE NICE THINGSOf couuuuuurse Of course this would happen to me I reread Just One Day and I m all confident and pleased because 2017 me loves a book that 2014 me loved And I m all qasas-ul-quran guess what else 2014 ish me loved The seuel This isonna be reatWell uess what world It wasn t Dead-End Road Mysteries great It was in factarbageYou d think I d expect this by now but I am STUPID and I NEVER DOUghSo this book takes place over the same span of time that the first one covers except this book instead of being empowering and interesting and filled with amazing character development is boring and repetitive and lovey dovey and actually contains the biggest character downgrade I have ever experienced in my young and bitter lifeWillem is mildly hot in the first book He is mysterious and poetic and whatnot He speaks a lot of languages and is tall and has reat hair and creates metaphors for love using wrist Nutella What s not to love Or accurately what s not to feel neutral towardWillem is the narrator of this book and he is the worst everHe is boring He is obsessive in a way that has.

Gayle Forman ☆ 8 summaryM s thoughts littered with Lulu memories trinkets thoughts words dialogue And despite the fact that Lulu lives in Willem s thoughts for the majority of this novel Forman convinces us that what they share is than just a passing fancy it s true love As Willem himself slowly rows to seize his life with his own hands he too like Allyson acknowledges that their day spent together changed him for the better And while there is the admission that both Willem and Allyson will be fine alone there is also the truth that they will be remarkable together Bram and Yael s love story which draws heavy parallels between that of Willem and Allyson s serves to strengthen our belief in the rightness of this couple Moreover what Forman really excels at conveying is that a relationship is build upon the willingness of both people to make it work It doesn t matter what hurdles are thrown their way if they re convinced that they are meant to be together no matter what they will stay together no matter what It is the Valors Measure growth of that mindset then that is important than the arc of any relationship It is for this reason that I love the way Forman has chosen to end this novel If you read closely enough if you understand fully enough you just know what s really being said in all those undertones And those are the endings that make measp in awe every time Needless to say fans of Forman s work will be flocking to buy this the day it releases It needs no further endorsement from me or any other reviewer the name of Gayle Forman is enough to ensure that it delivers and lives up to expectations And yet I was still surprised when I read this novel While Mia and Allyson are both very different heroines they do share subtle similarities in their lifestyle Adam and Willem however are as different as can be and I love that I love these two distinct male narratives for different reasons Despite both being darkly flawed beings Adam and Willem find ways to cope with their lives and move on And best of all I love that both these duologies are of a different nature Where She Went is seuel than companion novel whereas Just One Year relies on the dates time periods and locations of Just One Day to be fully experienced at its raw potential Perhaps best of all though Shakespeare remains the underlying inspiration connecting together the books and BFI Film Classics giving rise to the tones they convey With the magic she was worked up Forman has ensured one thing you will close her novel stainedYou can read this review and on my blog Ivy Book Bindings It s not either or not luck or love Not fate or will Maybe for double happiness you need both Blurb When he opens his eyes Willem doesn t know where in the world he is Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam All he knows is that he is once again alone and that he needs to find airl named Lulu They shared one magical day in Paris and something about that day that Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan girl makes Willem wonder if they aren t fated to be together He travels all over the world from Mexico to India hoping to reconnect with her But as monthso by and Lulu remains elusive Willem starts to uestion if the hand of fate is as strong as he d thought Note I ll review here Just One Night as well because I don t feel like doing the whole thing again I read the novella right after I finished this book and you can see that at the end of this reviewTo say the only thing I thought about was reading this book wouldn t be a lie I couldn t stop thinking about what happened that last day in Paris and why Willem disappeared and we found out what happened uestions were eating me alive What was Willem doing this whole time Was he looking for Allyson Did he وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله give up Did he everet to o to Holland What is it in Holland and you know how it isI was pleased this book answered most all of the
*uestions but it *but it such a bittersweet feeling It was a surprised I actually liked this book than I liked Just One Day because I found Willem and I repressed things the same way and we used the same kind of distractions so it was a reat thing to read how he overcomes all of that and becomes an stable Voice of Conscience guy but I have to be honest hereI completely hated the way the book was divided I wouldn t have minded a larger book if that meant we had that the first half that d be all about Willem and how he re discovered himself and how he came back to his family and friends and had a new purpose and the other half that d be about he and Allysonetting finally back together and they re PROBE MY ASS (A Reluctant Doctor/Patient Anal Sex erotica story) going to make it work and I really wanted to read about how they told each other what happened during that year but we didn tet the whole thing and I felt robbed somehowWell what I did like about the book was pretty much 80% of it I didn t kn I NEEDED MOREReally though How could you end it there D I mean yes that ending was beautiful but oddammit I needed details It can t possibly
JUST END THERE THERE S GOTTA BE TO ITSIGHend there there s otta be to itsigh I enjoyed it At least now I understand Willem s side of the story and finally know what Marvins Room goes on in that head of his However I find myself still not as satiated as I d hoped I would be i was a little disappointed in this book a lot disappointed because I thought it was something it wasnt Here s my full review I really think even setting aside my misconceptions that this book would have been heaps enjoyable if we were to watch Willem develop through a relationship with Allyson His problems were different from hers He needed to learn how to stay How to love things fully without the fear of loss I feel that that could have been shown wonderfully through watching his relationship bloom with Allyson and seeing their dynamic together rather than watching him wander the world at times aimlessly while they were apart 25 starsWell this was such a let down after just one day I expected to find out a bit about what had happened to Willem to cause him to disappear but I also wanted to know what happened to Willem and Allyson once they found each other again Unfortunately though 99% of this book was a really boring recap on what had happened to Willem over the course of the year that he and Allyson were separated and it was just mind numbingly boring I m not sure how Iot through it actuallyThe bit that I was then waiting for Allyson and Willem reunited was over in less than a page I mean seriously Seriously Are you freaking kidding me What an absolute waste of time this book was5 out of 10. PensabaCompañera tan romántica como emocional de Sólo un día esta es una historia sobre las elecciones ue hacemos y los accidentes ue ocurren así como de la felicidad ue se produce cuando ambas circunstancias se cruz. Very little positive impact on himself He mopes around and manipulates Roberto to the Dark Tower Came girls into loving him ha ha the reader is supposed to say How stupid of thatirl for not realizing he s in love with another irl who this one doesn t know exists Lol It s almost like he s fcking her and living in her home and all around making her think they re in an exclusive relationship He is very shtty to his friends He travels around to a few places but with none of the visceral descriptions the first book hasWhat I am trying to say is it is all very badAnd then the ending is shtty and inconclusive and has no payoff which is why the ebook Just One Night had to exist And the fact that this book made that lorified pamphlet of foot fetishizing have to come into creation is reason enough to one star itI don t want to talk about this anyBottom line Please pretend this book does not exist It s for your own Pink Ribbons, Inc. good pre reviewSOMEONE JUST MURDER ME JUST KILL ME WHATEVER HIGHER POWER MAY BE UP THERE PLEASE TAKE ME NOW PUT ME OUT OF MY MISERY END THIS SUFFERING GRANT ME THE SWEET SWEET OBLIVION OF DEATHYouuessed it Even though I adored the first book and it s one of my favorite YA books ever this book was not Star Cookies Comfort good Because there is no justice or fairness or joy or love in this worldReview to come if I survive today FEELINGS I melted into Just One Year In January I was impressed by Forman s Just One Day but not nearly as much as I was impressed by her If I StayWhere She Went duology Just One Year however ties together these two novels so seamlessly that I find myself unable to choose which duology I love And Forman Forman hits all the rights notes with this novel travel Shakespeare unflinchingly honest characterizations familial relationships and my favorite love that s meant to be Just One Year picks up in Paris from the moment when Allyson and Willem s stories diverge While we know what Allyson went through in her separation from Willem we now are privy to the inner workings of Willem s mind Andosh what a fascinating place it is For me one of the Mail Horror Bride (One Nation Under Zombies greatest strengths of this novel is the stark parallels but also the shocking differences between both these narratives For one many of the locations are similar In fact the near misses between these two will make you cry out in frustration than once but they only add to the steady build up of tension to the taleA slightly subtle similarity however is the thread of confusion that connects Allyson and Willem s journey In Just One Day Allyson wakes up to find herself alone in a foreign country Yet she finds herself puzzled by what happened to her companion why did he abandon her Why could he see aspects of her true personality that the others around her could not And what most importantly is she to do with her life now that that colorful whirlwind day is behind her and bland boring days lie ahead Forman answers these uestions with aplomb creating a New Adult novel that realistically explores the journey of college and even better the journey of finding yourself in a seemingly normal world As we will find out though Willem undergoes a similar state of mind After all how is he to find Allyson without even knowing her real name After traveling for years and meeting dozens of people why is it that she disarms him and sees into his soul with her honesty And how is he everoing to return to the normalcy of his on the road life now that he knows what it s like to be with someone who enuinely cares someone who has forced him to care for the first time in three years It was evident even from Just One Day that there was far to Willem than what met the eye And there is Bram Willem s father passed away three years ago and ever since Willem has barely spoken to his mother Yael Bram and Yael s love story is legendary encompassing their lives in such a way that Willem has always felt the odd one out And now left with the parent who is nothing like him Willem has resorted to THE ONE THING HE KNOWS HOW TO DO ESCAPE one thing he knows how to do escape of making any conscious decisions Willem has left his life up to fate oing where the wind blows him sleeping with the The Other Alice girls who throw themselves at him and spending time with the people who care to spend time with him Forman s portrayal of Willem is unapologetically rawiving us the limpses into the real man beneath the veneer of charm and wisdom Moreover Willem is slow and hesitant to acknowledge the full impact of his day spent with Allyson Although he knows in his ut that he is changed it takes awhile for him to truly accept this for him to accept that he wants from his life but meaningless travel meaningless relationships and random accidents While admittedly this can become frustrating I love that it s so typically Willem We don t expect his journey to be nearly as straight forward as Allyson s and it isn t but it s just as if not rewarding Further Forman explores the concept of will vs fate so beautifully weaving it into the storyline and
Subtly Bringing It Up Everybringing it up every often It s an integral part of Willem s The Connected Home growth but it s also a theme of these two novels as a whole so I love how they intersect Moreover I adore the emphasis on family in this novel especially as Forman never wastes time with meaningless family trees or background information Instead she throws us fully into Willem s head leaving us torasp at the straws of his connections to his remaining family members and their impact on his life Yael Willem s mother who resides in India is a particular favorite of mine Not only is their relationship messy and real full of the uncomfortable facts of life we d rather push under a rug but Forman expertly reveals the layers of upbringing that o into making a parent child relationship Yael s childhood has a direct impact on Willem s own childhood as well and so much of Willem s understanding of his mother comes from his understanding of her past Yet the best aspect of their relationship is the fact that ultimately Willem comes to realize that the parent is the fact that ultimately Willem comes to realize that the parent thought he was not so similar to may actually have in common with him than he thought And I love this I love that Willem and Yael have moved on from their rief but still find ways to move on from it together It isn t a perfectly patched up relationship but it s the small baby steps that o a long way And yet when you strip away the travel the family the self discovery at its heart Just One Year is a love story We find Wille. Illem se pregunte si su destino no será estar juntos Desde entonces viaja por todo el mundo con la esperanza de encontrarla Pero pasan los meses y Willem empieza a preguntarse si la fuerza del destino es tan poderosa como.
