Bookworm: One Day

When it comes to films that are based on books 99% of the time I prefer the book. 
I first got the film on DVD a few years ago before I realised it was based on a book. 
I had been meaning for quite a while to find the book and the library has come in very handy for this!

One Day: 

15th July 1988. Emma and Dexter meet on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways.
So where will they be on this day next year? And the year after that?
And every year that follows

I love  great love story and from the beginning of the story you want Dex and Em to get together.
You want to shout at them when they get with other people and ignore their feelings for one another. 
The story sees them meeting on 15th July 1988 and then meet them on the same day every year where you
find out about the events of the last 12 months every year for 20 years. 

One Day is a really moving book which is heartbreaking and tragic and the ending was so good it left
me weeping. Infact so did the film.


  1. I've heard this is such a great book - will definitely invest in it soon!
    Stop by sometime :) Much love, Sarah x

  2. I'd heard so so much about this book when it came out that I couldn't resist reading it, but I really didn't like it - I posted a review about it here>
    I really like seeing what other people have thought about books I've had strong feelings about though; differing opinions are conversation starters after all!

  3. I'd not heard of this, sounds good. I really need to read more! x
