lisa's reviews

Reading is the only thing in the world I am good at. A lifetime of reading, fifteen years of working in bookstores, and libraries, and an obsession with the written word makes me qualified enough to talk someone's ear off about books.  Now I am getting more ARCs than I have room for in the house.  Let me get back to reading them!

Just One Day - Gayle Forman Even though it took me weeks to get past the first chapter, I ended up loving this book. This book made me remember being in Europe, falling in love (not being in love) with a new boy in every city. The character of Allyson was so well done. I found myself liking her, sympathizing with her, and being completely frustrated with her. Her parents were a little one dimensional, but the friends she made and lost were worth reading about. I loved the fact that she took on a journey to find her mysterious boy again, something I wish I had done ten years ago.
