[Book Review]: Just one year – Gayle Forman

Just One Year (Just One Day, #2)GOODREADS SYNOPSIS: Before you find out how their story ends, remember how it began….

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 a girl named Lulu. They shared one magical day in Paris, and something about that day—that 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 months go by and Lulu remains elusive, Willem starts to question if the hand of fate is as strong as he’d thought. . . .

The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents that happen—and the happiness we can find when the two intersect.

This is the second book in the ‘Just one day’ trilogy and the story continues but this time from Willem’s perspective, whereas the first book ‘Just one day‘ was told from Allyson’s point of view.

This second book doesn’t pick up from where the first book ended (which I was a bit annoyed about when I started to read it because I wanted to know what happened when she knocked on his door), instead it picks up from the morning after Willem and Allyson spent the day together in Paris and we find out what exactly happened to Willem and why he disappeared that day.

Then the whole book is how Willem spent his year after that trying to track down Allyson (just like the first book was about how Allyson spent her year trying to track down Willem) and then it ends in the same place the first book ends and we find out what happens after that (finally) in the third and final novel ‘Just one night‘.

Just like the first book, there is a lot of Shakespeare used throughout the novel, so Shakespeare fans will surely enjoy this book aswell.

I didn’t find this book as good as the first one, but it was still a good and easy read and because it’s a continuation from ‘Just one day’, you’d be silly not to read it if you’ve already read the first book.

You can read my review to the first book ‘Just one day’ here.

Stay tuned for the final review in this trilogy.
