One Day in December
One Day in December: the most romantic, feel-good read of 2018 | Josie Silver
Two people. Ten chances. One unforgettable love story. 'The number one feel-good read of Christmas 2018' Dinah Jefferies Laurie is pretty sure love at first sight doesn't exist. After all, life isn't a scene from the movies, is it? But then, through a misted-up bus window one snowy December day, she sees a man who she knows instantly is the one. Their eyes meet, there's a moment of pure magic...and then her bus drives away. Laurie thinks she'll never see the boy from the bus again. But at their Christmas party a year later, her best friend Sarah introduces her to the new love of her life. Who is, of course, the boy from the bus. Determined to let him go, Laurie gets on with her life. But what if fate has other plans? Following Laurie, Sarah and Jack through ten years of love, heartbreak and friendship, One Day in December is a joyous, heart-warming and immensely moving love story that you'll want to escape into forever, for fans of Jojo Moyes, Lucy Diamond and Nicholas Sparks. 'The novelistic equivalent to LOVE ACTUALLY' The Bookseller 'The love story you've been waiting for ... I loved it!' Miranda Dickinson

One of the last books I read in December. I generally don‘t read romance unless it‘s tied into another plot or something like a Jane Austen novel. This was cute, but it spanned over a decade and I wasn‘t that impressed with the male protagonist. I liked Laurie and was rooting for her to find out what she wanted in life, but I didn‘t love this. Like I said I‘m not a strictly romance type person so perhaps the fault is with me and not the book.

Fazzahmdan Hello my dear how are you 2w

Omgosh I loved this book so much. Definitely worth the hype! I laughed, I cried, I lamented how unfair it all was, I cried some more, I cheered, cried again and then I was devastated that it was over. Excellent read! Kicking myself for putting this one off for so long!

MidnightBookGirl I read We Met in December, but next year I'll have to read this one! 21pts! 2w

I finished this romance/coming of age story with one day to go in December! I‘m glad I took a chance on this one, despite it being in a genre I don‘t always like.

While I usually can‘t stand books that contain a plot that stems from miscommunication, and insta-love, this one worked for me. It was the perfect way to finish out 2019.

MeganAnn I read and loved this one last December! It didn‘t feel like a typical romance novel, in the best way possible ❤️ 2w
eanderson I liked this one too! 2w
SamanthaMarie I did not find the male MC (was it Jack?) likeable at all. Until the very end. And I feel like it was rushed getting him to be a likeable human. But I did like the setup and format of the book :) 2w

✅ Crédit card hacked which caused a mad dash to call the bank to cancel and reissue it before more damage is done

✅ husband gets speeding ticket yesterday driving home from hike

✅ neighbor‘s 85 yr old father shows up at our door confused and lonely (his wife had Alzheimer‘s & just died before Xmas ?) and I play triage to assess if we call 9 1 1 or our neighbor first

Things come in 3‘s, so we‘re good now, right? Cautious reading time!

Very interesting read. I also enjoyed participating in #botmbuddyread, even though I was a week behind.
At the beginning I knew they had to end up together, but didnt know who it would happen. I was very glad Laurie and Sarah came back around and were friends.

Just finished reading this for the second time and it didn't disappoint. It was just as magical as when I read it for the first time last year. The experience was made even better by buddy reading this with everyone who joined in with @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks and @TheBookHippie 's #botm buddy read. If you enjoyed this book you should read her next one (will tag in comments) available 30th Jan on Kindle and 5th March in paperback. 📚📖

It was a busy week, so I was only able to finish two books. Tagged book will probably be my last book in December, unless I can squeeze in the last Percy Jackson novel. Spreading out Scrappy Little Nobody so I can count it for #memoirsandmysteries in 2020😄

A lot of red and blue covers this week! This

Anyone know any good reading time tracker apps? I have used Bookly, but had too many issues with it.

jb72 Honestly I don‘t. I just use my phone timer. I also sort of estimate when I forget to turn it on. 3w
Andrew65 I used Bookly previously but had some issues and frustrations with it. I now use Leio (which I have now used for a couple of years), not all singing all dancing but does what I want it to. http://leio.co/?i=1 (edited) 3w
JaneyWaneyB I use ReadTracker. I like it as it gives you a prediction for how long to read a book. Fairly simple layout it's on Play store so probably on iStore too https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.readtracker 3w

I thought this was great! I often find contemporary romances to be fun distractions, but this one was more satisfying. It was a slow burn with really likable characters, and it took place (for the most part) in the real world, sticking to believable timelines and reactions, with just a few storybook moments thrown in so you remember this is a #holidayread

After Laurie believes she's found love, she spends a year looking for him. When she finally does find him he's a taken man by none other than her bff.. Jack also struggles with inappropriate dreams and feelings for Laurie. Laurie doesn't know how to tell her bff Sarah or whether she should even. The ending made me happy. #currentlyreading #currentlyread
