[Waiting On Wednesday #5: Just One Year]

Waiting On Wednesday happens every week on Wednesdays (hence the name) and is hosted by Breaking The Spine.  It's were people talk about the books they want to read about that aren't out yet.

My pick this week is...

"Just One Year"
Author: Gayle Forman
Release Date: October 2013

---------------------------------------------------------
Summary:

Companion to JUST ONE DAY. It will be in Willem's POV.

"Can you fall in love in just one day? Can you become a new person? How about in just one year? In JUST ONE DAY and its companion novel JUST ONE YEAR, sheltered American good girl Allyson “LuLu” Healey and easygoing actor Willem De Ruiter are about to find out against a guidebook-worthy array of foreign backdrops. Equal parts romance, coming-of-age-tale, mystery and travel romp (with settings that span from England’s Stratford upon Avon to Paris to Amsterdam to India’s Bollywood) JUST ONE DAY and JUST ONE YEAR show how in looking for someone else, you just might wind up finding yourself.
-Goodreads
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I LOVE Gayle Forman's writing and I can't wait to see what happens from Willem's point of view!  I enjoyed every moment of Allyson's story "Just One Day" (see review HERE) and it'll be cool to see what happened to Willem in the dead space.  Just one question though, wasn't Willem blonde?  And if so, who is on that cover with Allyson?

 What are you waiting on this week?  I wanna know!

I just finished up reading Just One Day, and really enjoyed it! I'm excited to have a book by Willem's POV, to get into that mind of his. It's going to be so interesting to see everything from his POV. And your point about his hair... I don't remember what color his hair was actually. Makes me want to reread just to see if they did get his hair color right on the cover.

Lovely pick! <3
