Did I enjoy this book: I really did! I loved it . . . more than Just One Day! (You can check out my review of Just One Day here.) As with the first book, I flew through this one. I didn’t want to put it down. I read it every free chance I had.

Willem’s story is awesome. I can’t even imagine what it would be like to travel and experience life the way he has. His journey over that one year was amazing. It was fascinating to read. And to find out how close everything was . . . how it could have happened . . . wow. I just kept reading. And that ending!!! I’m not going to spill much about this story. All I’ll say is, if you read Just One Day, you must read Just One Year. 


Would I recommend it: Yes, but read Just One Day first. =)


About the book – from Goodreads: 
Just One Day. Just One Year. Just One Read.

Before you find out how their story ends, remember how it began….

When he opens his eyes, Willem doesn’t know where in the world he is—Prague or Dubrovnik or back in Amsterdam. All he knows is that he is once again alone, and that he needs to find a girl named Lulu. They shared one magical day in Paris, and something about that day—that girl—makes Willem wonder if they aren’t fated to be together. He travels all over the world, from Mexico to India, hoping to reconnect with her. But as months go by and Lulu remains elusive, Willem starts to question if the hand of fate is as strong as he’d thought. . . .

The romantic, emotional companion to Just One Day, this is a story of the choices we make and the accidents that happen—and the happiness we can find when the two intersect.
