If you follow me on Twitter or Goodreads, you probably know how much I’m in love with Gayle Forman’s Just One Day and Just One Year. I feel very lucky to have had a chance to read Just One Year early, before its October release. I reviewed it here (spoiler-free), and Just One Day was our very first Read of the Week earlier this year.
I guess I was doubly lucky this week because another ARC of Just One Year arrived in the mail, thanks to Penguin Teen. My luck has turned into your luck since I’m giving away that fresh, new ARC to one reader. Normally, I would do just a plain, informative giveaway post, but because I love these books so much and the words in this story mean a lot to me, I decided to do something a little special. Because it released in paperback a couple days ago, I revisited the book and picked my Top 10 favorite quotes from Just One Day. Narrowing them down to just 10 was hard, but I did it! Click through the slideshow below to see which ones made the cut, and if you get to the end, you might see a bonus quote from a certain book that is not out yet…
Woot! I hope the quotes got you pepped for the giveaway! As mentioned, one young folk will win some serious “double happiness.” By that, I mean one reader will luck out and win an advance reading copy of Just One Year, so they can fall in love with Willem.
Enter to win through the Rafflecopter widget below. The more tasks you complete, the more entries you will receive. The contest ends on September 4th at 12:01am EST. Winners will be contacted via email on September 4th. Good luck!
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.
Just One Year hits shelves October 10th!
