Wishlist Wednesday #1


So, Wishlist Wednesday is a blog hop hosted by the lovely Pen to Paper in which we discuss a book that has been on our wishlists for a while, or even one that we've just added!

The book I have chosen for this week is the well known One Day by David Nicholls, a book which many have read and raved about, and has now been made into a feature film released in cinemas starring Anne Hathaway.

'Product Description'/Summary from Amazon:
My copy, still with its sale stickers on!
'I can imagine you at forty,' she said, a hint of malice in her voice. 'I can picture it right now.'
He smiled without opening his eyes. 'Go on then.'
15th July 1988. Emma and Dexter meet for the first time on the night of their graduation. Tomorrow they must go their separate ways.
So where will they be on this one day next year?
And the year after that? And every year that follows?

Twenty years, two people, ONE DAY. From the author of the massive bestseller STARTER FOR TEN.

I actually bought this book around a year ago.. or what seems like a very long time ago anyway! I saw it discussed on the TV book club which was on channel 4 and liked the sound of it so went out to my local Smiths and got my hands on a copy intending to read it as soon as I could. I absolutely fell in love with the concept of the story, and thought the structure of the narrative would be unlike anything I had read before, plus, I'm a sucker for a love story. As usual with me though, something else cropped up, another book I was more excited about, or one of the many books I have to read for University muscled into my queue of 'To Read Soon' books, so 'One Day' unfortunately got pushed to the back of my bookcase...

When thinking about which book I would choose this week, I suddenly remembered it, and now am desperate to read it after re-reading the blurb! Maybe this will be my next page turner?
