February’s Book Club Pick was JUST ONE DAY by Gayle Forman [read the synopsis here].
We had our meeting Tuesday night and I have to say it was one of the best ones that we’ve had in quite a while! Maybe because we took a little “trip” to Paris? We went to dinner at a French restaurant in St Marks, bahr|che, and had some scrumptious wine and cheese. Afterwards we made a trip to Macaron Parlour for some… well, macarons! It was a deliciously French evening. As you can see from the above pictures, I carried my book and displayed it with pride with all the macarons.
Consensus of the Book Club? We loved the book and were furious at the ending (some comments: “seriously?!” “no way..” “why why why!”). We have theories and ideas about Willem. We have a bone to pick with Allyson’s parents. We have motivation to do something out of the ordinary. We have a dying need to read the next book. We cannot wait for JUST ONE YEAR, releasing in October [read the synopsis here].
Needless to say, you should add JUST ONE DAY to your reading list. Actually you know what? Put it all the way to the top! Or maybe you want to wait until right before JUST ONE YEAR to come out so you don’t go crazy waiting until October… Decisions, decisions. Either way, add it.
