Waiting on Wednesday (103): JUST ONE YEAR and THE BROKENHEARTED


JUST ONE YEAR by Gayle Forman
October 2013 from Dutton Juvenile
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."

Eeeek! I'm so excited for JUST ONE YEAR!! I loved JUST ONE DAY, so I can't wait to read from Willem's POV and find out what happens next.  

THE BROKENHEARTED by Amelia Kahaney
October 8th, 2013 from HarperCollins
"A wealthy ballerina living in a heightened, Gotham-like version of Chicago, has her heart broken - literally - and receives a dangerous bionic heart, transforming her into a superhero."
Very short summary, but it's enough to intrigue me! It sounds great.

What are you waiting on?

  5. I still haven't read Just One Day. I know, I'm a slacker. However, I love the cover of Just One Year and can't wait to read it. Also, The Brokenhearted sounds beyond fabulous even with that short summary. Great WoW picks!

    1. It's probably smart to hold off reading JUST ONE DAY until you can get your hands on JUST ONE YEAR - I've been dying to read JUST ONE YEAR ever since I finished the first book! The wait is going to be torture ;)

  6. The cover and summary for The Broken Hearted has me intrigued too.
