book review- Just One Day

Book Review number 2

Just One Day by Gayle Forman

the synopsis:

Allyson Healey’s life is exactly like her suitcase—packed, planned, ordered. Then on the last day of her three-week post-graduation European tour, she meets Willem. A free-spirited, roving actor, Willem is everything she’s not, and when he invites her to abandon her plans and come to Paris with him, Allyson says yes. This uncharacteristic decision leads to a day of risk and romance, liberation and intimacy: 24 hours that will transform Allyson’s life.

A book about love, heartbreak, travel, identity, and the “accidents” of fate,Just One Day shows us how sometimes in order to get found, you first have to get lost. . . and how often the people we are seeking are much closer than we know.

My mum bought me this book and I had never heard of it but had heard of Gayle Forman through the book ‘If I stay’ (if you want I can do a book/movie review). I was excited for this book as I had read If I stay and fell in love. I started reading this right away. I found that this book was a slow read but that doesnt mean its a bad book it just took me a while to read it.

it took me a couple of months to finish but the whole time this book suprised me. I fell in love with Willem and Allyson and how they were with eachother. This book was different to the other love stories I have read. This book also has amazing quotes so I am going to share with you my favourites

“Part of me knows one more day won’t do anything except postpone the heartbreak. But another part of me believes              differently. We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day.              Anything can happen in just one day.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“Sometimes the best way to find out what you’re supposed to do is by doing the thing you’re not supposed to do.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“You have to fall in love to be in love, but falling in love isn’t the same as being in love”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

“He showed me how to get lost, and then I showed myself how to get found.”
Gayle Forman, Just One Day

I suggest this to everyone who loves a good cry and heartbreaking romance

hope you enjoyed my review of this book. If you want give me some requests for books I should review

Book review~ the future of us

this week I decided to read a book that I would have never picked up before and read it
I went to the library and got this book
The Future Of Us ~ by Jay Asher and Carolyn Mackler
I didnt think I was going to like this book but then I read and read and couldnt put it down!!
the plot of the story is two teenagers get their very first computer and this weird thing called ‘facebook’ popped up on their screen. they looked on this facebook thing and it showed their futures
it included
-their jobs
-their location
– who they were going to marry
– possible kids
and the whole book is them finding out more about their future
I could not put this book down it was spectacular!!!
I suggest this to young teenagers everywhere

i rate this 8/10

Ed sheeran- X (multiply) album review

so for my ‘first’ blog post I wanted it to be something that everyone has heard of
so ed sheeran has come out recently with his new album X and it is pronounced as multiply
I wanted to go through each song and give a quote from the song and a review of it. I am only doing half of the album 🙂 let me know if you want the rest.

1. One –
All my senses come to life
While I’m stumbling home as drunk as I
Have ever been and I’ll never leave again
‘Cause you are the only one

these are just a bit of a chorus from the first song called ‘one’
this song has such a nice sound and I love that it is acoustic like his original album
the lyrics are lovely and have such a good meaning
I highly recomend for you to check this one out if you like acoustic soft songs !!

2. Im a mess-
See the flames inside my eyes
It burns so bright I wanna feel your love, no
Easy baby maybe I’m a liar
But for tonight I wanna fall in love
And put your faith in my stomach

this is the chorus from the song ‘Im a mess’
this song is on an acoustic guitar but it has a faster sound then ‘one’
this song isnt my favourite but it is a great song!
i recommend this for you because it is an easy listening song and written beautifully

3. sing –
I need you darling
Come on set the tone
If you feel you’re falling
Won’t you let me know

so as you can tell this is a more pop song compared to the other two songs
I personally dont enjoy listening to this song as much as the other ones. it is still a great song but i prefer Eds more laid/ stripped back songs
I recommend this for all you pop listeners out there

so I only decided to do 3 songs and I will do the rest in later time 🙂
