If only I have a pillow by the river. Love reading in a relaxing environment, though it's often hard to do it. Most of my readings are done at airports...

Just One Day

Just One Day - Gayle Forman The concerns about Allyson's safety kept me from trusting the love built between Allyson and Willem. Their experience in Paris is not so romantic to touch my feelings, etc. Well, this experience may touch Allyson more deeply than me. But according to what I read, it's hard to trust such a man so much to wind up in bed with him, especially after he seemed pissed about Allyson's tempt to protect him.

I was constantly worrying that from any perspective, this Paris travel may turn into a kidnapping any time and the male character is not so charming in terms of sense of humor or insights into life. And in the middle of the book it seems Allyson has seen this and was ready to let it pass. But I was saying in my heart that don't let this make the twist that Allyson met Willem and suddenly all the kidnapping-potential actions become very reasonable and they just fell in love and lived happily thereafter. Because who knows Willem is not just making up some lies to fool Allyson again. From every perspective, I am not convinced about his feeling for Allyson.

But the depiction of Allyson's problem in handling college and losing her BFF Melanie is very precise. Although this part seems kind of detached from the love story.
