Waiting on Wednesday: Just One Year (Just One Day #2) by Gayle Forman

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

Just One Year is the stunning conclusion to the story begun in Just One Day by Gayle Forman and is set to arrive on October 15. I devoured the first book, which was also the first Gayle Forman book I'd ever read and I am really interested to see what happens with Willem. Check out the summary below!

Just One Year cover The heartrending conclusion—from Willem’s POV—to the romantic duet of novels that began with Allyson’s story in Just One Day

After spending an amazing day and night together in Paris, Just One Year is Willem’s story, picking up where Just One Day ended. His story of their year of quiet longing and near misses is a perfect counterpoint to Allyson’s own as Willem undergoes a transformative journey, questioning his path, finding love, and ultimately, redefining himself.

From Goodreads

How incredible does that sound? It's unlike any other series continuation I've ever read. Switching narrators is going to give us access to such much more context about the first book while still carrying the story forward. Are you as excited as I am? 

Have you read Just One Day or any of Gayle's other work? Any favorites? What are you waiting on this week?

I haven't read the first book but am dying to. I really love her books. If I Stay and Where She Went were amazing. Thanks for sharing!
