Two family members got me the same book for Christmas and I had finished reading it by December 27th. It was One Day by David Nicholls. I LOVE IT. I'm a bit of pretentious reader; a bit in love with finding my own good reads and snubbing ones that millions of people have enjoyed and are classics of our time. I know it's arrogant. But this book was amazing and had me hooked from the start. Without giving you a full synopsis it's about two people who spend the night of their university graduation together and their relationship over the next 20 years. It's extremely involving and you become very attached to the characters. I immediately recommended to my best male friend who I thought might judge it as girly fluff but he was crying by the end of it too..now my parnter is reading it and keeping me up until 1am with the light on he's so into it!
As with most popular books it has been turned into a film already and you can click here to watch the trailer (but I'd advise you not to if you want to read it or are half way through!) and will be released later this year. I think I might give it a miss though...Anne Hathaway, as credible an actress she is, just isn't Emma Morley and it seems I'm not the only person who thinks so. First the film makers spoiled Atonement for me and now this, how dare they! I'll reserve judgement until release day or now..
