Just One Night - Gayle Forman

Summary from Goodreads:

After spending one life-changing day in Paris with laid-back Dutch actor Willem De Ruiter, sheltered American good girl Allyson “Lulu” Healey discovered her new lover had disappeared without a trace. Just One Day followed Allyson’s quest to reunite with Willem; Just One Year chronicled the pair’s year apart from Willem’s perspective. Now, back together at last, this delectable e-novella reveals the couple’s final chapter.

So I am struggling to enjoy anything from Gayle Forman now. I really hated If I Stay/Where She Went and Just One Year. After reading Just One Day, I have been continuously reading other books by Gayle in hopes that I will find something else of hers that makes me feel what Just One Day did. I haven't yet but I have finally completed the Just One Day books by reading the Just One Night novella. I'm glad that we saw what happened after Just One Year but I felt a disconnect and did not like the writing style at all. I skimmed over a lot of it because it all seemed pretty pointless to me honestly. However, the very last couple of sentences reminded me of Just One Day so I will have to re-read that one! I do have Gayle's new book I Was Here but I'm really worried about reading it!

Rating: 2/5

  1. Oh no! I haven't read any of the books in this duo yet, but I was planning on it. I probably won't pay for the e-book of this then.
